Stories to Inspire
Making a Difference By Helping Her Dad
In a letter sent to MSAA, proud father Michael Crisomia talks about his daughter Sophia, who submitted a paper on "I can make a difference by..." for a contest at her school. She wrote about how she would make a difference and be a good citizen by helping her dad. Michael has MS, and to follow are excerpts from his letter to MSAA.
"When I found out about Sophia's paper, I was amazed and inspired that my little girl, 7 years old at the time, would even think of writing about me and my MS. I was so touched by her words and how she understands the ways in which this disease affects me, that I cried with happiness as I read her paper. Sophia is one of my two little angels, with the other being my younger daughter, Joanna - who is just as helpful, understanding, and loving.
"Sophia's paper won First Prize in the contest at her school. Her paper was then entered in a contest held by the Delaware PTA, where she won First Prize again, and received an Award of Excellence in Literature along with a medal.
"I can't express just how happy this made me feel! I read her letter often, but it's not just the words that she wrote; she acts this way all of the time. She is a blessing to me, and if she can inspire others ... this would be awesome!"
How I Can Make a Difference
Do you know how I can make a difference? I will be a good citizen by helping my dad. I will help him walk. When he needs me to open the door, I will do it for him. When he needs to walk with his cane I will hold his hand. When he is tired and he needs me to get something for him I will get it for him. When he is walking with his walker and the key broke I will take it and we will push it back on and I will close it. Also when it's a mess in the back of the car, I will clean it up and I will go in my house and throw it out. For another example I will help him move into his house. That's how I will take care of my dad and make a difference!Back
