The Magical Washcloth by Michael and John
One December afternoon I had a bloody nose because forgot moisturizer. I went to the nurse and she made it all better. When I get back Ben was there and gave me a magic wash cloth from our prize bin--just so I would feel better. It was his and John's idea and all of the other kids agreed! It was the greatest day of my life. because I will treasure this forever. This is special because my friend Ben gave this to me. I just can not wait to put the washcloth in water and see the magic happen.

Confucius thought rulers should be honest and fair. Laozi believed people could live in peace if they found balance in their life “yin and yang”. Han feizi was founded legalism. He thought a ruler should have absolute power and a strong military.
