"Mrs. Dadey, A girl in my class named McKenna wanted to be my friend and I said no, so she started crying. So I felt bad and told her that we could be friends and she stopped. Then I realized it was funny when she cried so I told her we weren't friends actually and she started crying again.

"Hi I really like mermaid tales even though I just started reading it my favorite character is Kiki I love her long hair and her outfit and my favorite sea creature is the dragon fish. They live in the deep sae near the abyss zone they are small worm like creatures. They use byalumanecence for hunting. They also have spy lights that other fish and people can't see. They can see you but you can't see them. I might be telling you a lot I watch a lot of creature shows and I love animals so I know a bunch about them.especally"

"Hi! I'm Ava. I like how Echo, Kiki, Pearl, and Shelly get to have all these adventures. My favorite book so far is Book #16, Flower Girl Dreams. I like how Pearl learns that weddings aren't about the grandness or how many shells you spend, but it's an occasion that brings families and friends together."

"I’m so happy you replied, I learned about Ruth from the Internet. Google or YouTube search Ruth Becker Blanchard and lots of interviews and articles will show up! Anyway onto our next survivor, #19 Michael Joseph Early life Michael Peter Joseph was born May 11, 1907 in Detroit, Michigan, USA to Lebanese immigrants, Peter (born 1883) and Kathryn Rizq (born 1886) Joseph. In 1909, he gained a sister, Mary. Kathryn and her two children went back to Lebanon around 1911 to visit relatives. Titanic For their return to the US, the Josephs took a train to Cherbourg, France where they boarded the Titanic as third-class passengers. Kathryn was 23, Michael was four, and Mary was 2 years old. The family was asleep at the time of the collision, but Kathryn was woken up by the impact. After hearing the commotion outside, she woke up her two children and got them dressed. She carried Mary in her arms while Michael held onto her skirt. When they got to the boat deck, Kathryn and Mary were separated from Michael amidst the chaos. Kathryn and Mary escaped in a lifeboat, and an unknown man picked up Michael and threw him in a lifeboat. All three of the Josephs were picked up by the Carpathia the next morning where they reunited. There the kids contracted measles, and upon arrival in New York they were hospitalized before leaving on a train for Detroit. Tragic Post Titanic life In Michigan, they lived in an apartment above a grocers, On March 22, 1914 Katherine, her husband Peter, and Michael went to church, leaving their four-year-old daughter Mary alone, asleep in her crib. Michael Tonie, the grocer who lived directly below the Joseph family, heard the screams of a child and rushed up to the apartment. Kicking open her bedroom door he was met with flames and spotted young Mary standing helpless in the middle of the room, her clothes alight. Mr Tonie, without regard for his own safety, beat the flames out with his bare hands and swept the child up and rushed her down to his grocery store where he telephoned for an ambulance; Mary was taken to St Mary's Hospital. Her parents, upon returning from church, were met by a policemen who informed them of events and they hastened to the hospital. Mary died from her injuries later that day with her parents by her side. She was buried in Mt Olivet Cemetery in Detroit.  In March 1915, Kathryn gave birth to another daughter, Sadie. However, Kathryn tragically died at the age of 26 in June of tuberculosis. Sadie tragically died in November when she was less than a year old. In 1926, Peter Joseph died of a heart condition. Michael was taken in by an uncle and aunt. Later life and death Michael married Catherine Rouhana, another Michigan native with Lebanese parents. They had four children. Michael became a truck driver. He lived in Detroit for the rest of his life, and because of his tragic childhood he was rather quiet and enjoyed nothing more than the company of his family. He never cared to discuss Titanic and only spoke of it to his grandchildren. Michael Joseph died on May 18, 1991, a week after his 84th birthday of a heart attack. His death left eighteen remaining survivors."

"hello, debbie!! I think the ending should be that her grandmother was a vampire and gave her the broche and that she simply told Eddie that.I think you could've written different endings so that the readers could guess which one happened and then you could write the answer on the bottom of the page upside down"
