By Amanda Heskiel In color war, Sarah was the general. We split up the team. We needed to make songs and then to sing as a team. Esther was chosen to write the songs. She thought that Rachel was much better in writing songs. Esther gave that job to Rachel. When Rachel finished writing it, she gave it to Sarah. Sarah photocopied it and gave it out to the whole team. We practiced the songs when we sang it against the blue team. Every one complimented Sarah on the great song. Sarah said, “Thank you.” and then she said, “But, Rachel was the one to write it. She should be the one being complimented, not me.” We learn from Sarah that, even though she was the main person, she didn’t want all the credit. She was nice enough to give the credit to the person who deserved it.
