The following was submitted by a borough student as part of a class project on which bird should represent the country: the bald eagle or the wild turkey.
My name is Joseph Ciciliato. I am in third-grade at PS 94. I am writing to tell you that I have a special bird in mind to represent our country. The bald eagle, instead of the wild turkey, should be our national bird.
I believe the bald eagle is a good choice for our national bird. It is a strong and brave bird. The bald eagle is a symbol of strength and courage. I would not choose the wild turkey because it is shy and easily captured or food.
I am glad the bald eagle is our national symbol. It shows our country’s strength and courage. I want to thank you for your time and hope you agree we should keep the bald eagle as our national symbol.
