Cook Book IV literary reflection

  Power of Place 


The most I can do for my friend is simply be his friend.” 

~ Henry David Thoreau 


    Only few places in your life will ever make a special place. Certain places are special to people; it makes them feel comfortable and at home. I have a place that is like my second home, where I am surrounded by friends and a community that I love. The Fenn School in Concord MA is a place only people that have been there experience. Fenn is a special community that surrounds you in the kindness and support of your fellow teachers and friends. During lunch everyone in 8th grade and my class of 23 in ninth grade meet to eat. Recently we got new lunch tables and I had a table where I wasn’t really close to anyone that was going to sit there with me. When we sat down I felt like it was easy to talk to everyone, even though I wasn’t close to them. The community at Fenn accepts me and supports me and I do the same. People love and care, because everyone else loves and cares about them. Powerful places are apart of a  different place in everybody’s harts, the power of place is the strongest power of all.
