A Story Book in Mind
When I was very young, I read a really stimulating book. The title of the book is called “The Trumpet of the Swan”. Although it has been a long time since I first read it, I decided to take it off of the bookshelf, blow off the dust from its cover, and read it again. This book states how difficult it is for a cygnet named “Louis” to live without a voice. However, he never gave up. Instead, he faced his problems bravely. I think the theme and idea of the book is relevant to our daily lives. Therefore, we should follow in Louis' steps and overcome our obstacles.
