Boy’s Dreams Shoot For The Stars
“I see the moon
and the moon sees me
The moon sees the somebody I'd like to see.
God bless the moon
and God bless me
God bless the somebody I'd like to see!”
This is what little Bob Moon wrote as he landed on the moon with two other cancerous children and two professional astronauts today. Mr. Moon told us that it has always been little Bob’s dream to go to the moon, but unfortunately Bob has recently been diagnosed with leukemia and may not have much more time to live. Mr. Moon tells us that after Bob was diagnosed with cancer he sent money to NASA requesting an opportunity for Bob and two of his friends from the hospital to go to the moon before they didn't have any time left. Bob found out that he was going to the moon on his birthday and he told us that he felt like he had a chance at another life. He also said that he found a light in the darkness of cancer. Bob and his friends are now almost completely rid of cancer, Bob says that when he grows up he will request to work as an astronaut for NASA.
History Of Pizza
Have you ever thought about the history of pizza so you could mentally thank whoever made it? Well, I chose to look back and try to find out. In 1522, tomatoes were brought to Europe and they were once thought to be poisonous. On account of them being thought to be poisonous, the wealthier side of Europe wouldn’t eat them, which left the poorer population to eat them. The poorer people would eat the tomatoes on dough or bread, which made the first simple pizza. The people used to call it the Neapolitan pie. The neapolitan pie became popular because most families only had flour, olive oil, lard, and herbs. Some people believed that Raffaele Esposito was the first person to ever make an actual pizza. Pizza became well-known in world war two as it spread to America, England, France, and Spain. Gennuardo Lombardi was the first person in America to open a pizzeria on Spring Street, New York City in 1905. Pizza was seen as a foreign food in America until the 1950’s. Pizzerias in America started using non-Italian ingredients and some non-Italian restaurants started serving pizza. In the sixties, pizza became very popular on account of the invention of frozen pizza you could buy and take home to cook. Later on, pizzerias started a delivery option for people who ordered. In some cases, people used the delivery system to spy on government officials or presidential candidates. As I read about the history of pizza, I never thought that pizza was as incredibly interesting as it is delicious. THE END
