The Days of Our Lives By Patty Paralemos 8-2 As I sit back and remember these past three years at I.S. 74 I ' ve had many Good Times. Even though there was alot of hard work, I took it One Day At A Time. I met so many new friends that once in a while it became Too Close For Comfort. We began to feel like The Brady Bunch. We had some fun too. We played Name That Tune in muisic. My favorite city became Dallas and we learned about the many different forms of Life On Earth in science; as well as The Facts Of Life. Mrs. Kurchin ' s plays were always the best. I especially liked the play that took place in a General Hospital. The Doctors were trying to figure out who murdered an innocent woman. Mrs. Krugman helped to make these three years even more pleasurable. She shed a Guiding Light on all my problems and helped me to solve them. All three years in I.S. 74 have been Happy Days. We only have One Life To Live and As The World Turns we must Search For Tomorrow and a better future. 35

Life is... By Ileana Paiz 8-2 Life is a soap opera you see with problems and more problems just waiting to be solved. When you think you ' re reaching the end you ' ve really just begun. And though it may seem hard you must struggle and fight. In this life, there is much to be learned. We all have hopes and aspirations to fulfill but first we must learn to earn what we need. Nothing is free. Though it may be difficult the reward is great. Whatever you invest in life you get back. Unfortunately, many of us realize this too late when nothing can be done. Life is a soap opera you see. Life is a Soap Opera By Valerie dayman 6-2 As the Days of Our lives go by All My Children have an appointment with The Doctors. There I was walking through General Hospital in Dallas, Texas looking for The Doctors. The children were fidgeting. Oh, I thought to myself, The Young And The Restless. We finally saw The Doctors. They told me the truth about Ryan ' s Hope. He had none! The Doctors told me that As The World Turns, Ryan will live in Another World. How could The Doctors say that? Even if Ryan has One Life To Live, does it have to end before his twentiety birthday? How can they say I must Search For Tomorrow? How can they say they may never find a cure? There I was looking out into The Edge Of Night. How could I tell my husband our Dynasty was ending? I had to find Ryan ' s Guiding Light. The Doctors told us to go to a Dr. McClain. His office was on Flamingo Road. Tests were taken. Ryan was hospitalized near Falcon Crest. A day later, he died. Our Dynasty had ended. We moved to King ' s Crossing to begin again. 34

The Victim ' By John Palazzolo Have you ever been at the feet of a mad-man - bound and gagged - your fate determined by a twisted blood-thirsty mind? It ' s a horror. A horror that just has to be released. The events of that night will get out. For now, finally, the story will be told. I was home alone that night. The house was dark and still. The wind-driven rain was blowing against the windows, making a loud tapping sound. Soon the storm started to rage. The wind howled in the trees. Suddenly, I heard a scream. It couldn ' t have been, I told myself. But it was. I heard it with my own ears. I put on my coat and ventured outside. The rain bit at my face. The wind threw me from side to side. As I advanced through the darkness, I tripped over a large object. Now on my knees, I slowly looked up. The street light shined on a man. It was a huge muscular man with ghostly eyes and a rigid beard. I slowly crawled from the man as he gave a spine-chilling laugh. I got up and ran, slipping on the slick pavement, I fell and twisted my ankle. But I had to keep on moving. Slowly I hobbled, half dragging my lame leg behind me. I heard the man ' s footsteps coming closer and closer. When I reached the door I dragged myself in my house. I bolted the door and locked the windows. At last I was safe. I started for the phone. " Hello, police? There ' s a killer outside my door! Please come! " I pleaded. " Please help me! " In the corner of my eye I saw the killer through the window. " Help me!! Please help me!! I ' m at 53-22 Maple Drive. Help! " My pursuer took a flying leap through my large patio window. He grabbed the phone, ripping it from the wall, and threw it across the room. I screamed and yelled at the top of my lungs. He grabbed me by the neck and squeezed until I was half suffocated. The killer then threw me over his shoulder and dumped me on the floor. He savagely ripped off his shirt, tearing it into pieces. He tied my hands and feet and gagged me. The madman frantically searched through the kitchen drawers for something. To my horror, he took out a large meat cleaver. Laughing he slowly approached. One step at a time. The killer came closer and closer. I squirmed. I felt helpless. As the man came nearer I could feel his hot breath on my neck. He knelt down beside me. The man waved the cl eaver at my face. My heart was pounding. I was in a cold sweat. He brushed the blade against my neck. I squirmed in pain. I felt like a worm about to be used as bait. He laughed, looked at me straight in the eyes, and raised the cleaver. I heard sirens in the distance. Was it true? Was it my imagination? It couldn ' t have been. My madman heard it too. He looked at me and gave a sneering growl. As the siren came closer he dropped his weapon and jumped through the window -out into the rain. The killer has left my home, but he is still on the loose. He ' s still out there, somewhere, waiting for the next rainy night. Waiting for someone to be along. Waiting for you. There are many programs on television that suggest acts of violence such as this. Those shows reach young children and people who may be influenced by them. These programs may be thrilling and entertaining for us, but for some people, these shows motivate them to commit their own acts of violence. 36
