Marcy S., age 16, Tennessee

Lovely, cloudy, very windy and mild. At noon it was so lovely — I just felt wonderful. And as I passed Mrs. Winslow’s garden and looked beyond at the swaying willow tree in its gown of bright green with the blue sky and white fleecy clouds in the background, I prayed that I would never forget it. At noon, Mom and I discussed college and practically decided on Rochester University. Letter from Mary S.
