“What Does Water Mean To You” by Lily Jo Ramsey

When I am near water I feel calm and peaceful.
I enjoy the cold gentle feeling of my creek.
Stargazer Creek in the spot up by the waterfall or you can sip from the wonderful delicacy with a river where the salmon run and feed the people of Alaska.

Water, I am made of lots of water. I thrive on the clean, fresh water, delicious water. I can feel it, sense it, know it, smell it, hear it, I am water.

— Lily Jo Ramsey is 9 years old and is a fourth grader at the Haines Borough School District
