Dear ACE students,
I would like to thank everyone for participating in the ACE recitation Contest. It has been a wonderful seeing y’all progress with your recitation material. You’ve been working so hard and this contest allows you to showcase what you’ve learned to your family and friends. The recitation contest is filled with a lot of work but it’s satisfying for me to see y’all perform. I’m very happy with the progress and I hope you’re happy with the results.
On another note, I would like to take the time to tell you about the current state of my home. As y’all know, I am from Houston, Texas and I was recently there during the summer holidays. Recently, Texas, specifically Houston has been devastated by the tragic Hurricane Harvey. (Hurricane is a word for Typhoon in the Western Hemishphere.) My hometown is the 4th largest city in America and it’s been difficult to rebuild after this tragedy. There have been floods that have left thousands of people out of homes. It is recorded as one of the most disastrous hurricanes to ever make landfall in America.
I wish I was home to volunteer and help my community. It’s been difficult for me to see my city struggle. On the bright side, It has been heartwarming to see my city take care of each other. Which is why i encourage you to visit Texas and see just how kind and strong Texasns are.
I ask from myself to you to just please be aware of how fortunate we are to live in a safe city like Okayama.  I encourage you and your family to keep my city in your prayers and thoughts. If you can, please check the American Redcross online or other organizations to donate. Thank you for your time and let’s continue to learn english so we can all be a part of the world.
