Local Students Write Love Letters to Their South Sound Hometowns: Tacoma

Readers and South Sounders: Tacoma School of the Arts Humanities students are participating in writing "love letters" to their hometowns. The writing exercise combines creativity, editing, and getting the letters published. Join me in celebrating these students and their wonderful letters in the upcoming letter series featured on the In Your Neighborhood blog. Read on and enjoy!

Dear Tacoma, Why do you rain so much? Why do you always give me bad hair days? Although I love the way you bring back so many memories with just a certain smell, your weather is unpredictable. I love your warm summer nights and your  long hot days. I enjoyed playing in your snow as a child but I've grown too old for that. I love your Christmas mornings and the way you make me feel like a kid again. I enjoy and appreciate the friends you've brought me to meet, there great! But I must say as soon as I turn 18, I'm out of here!
Love yours truly, Kiva!
