Tyler has been writing stories for class assignments and his story was picked as something to read in front of the school at their last weekly assembly.
The class went to the Taiko Drum Show. I almost cried because it reminded me of Japan. I was born in Japan. There were two Japanese people in the show. The taiko drums are made from wood, iron metal, and cow skin. They played a shell too. They said Japanese words. They did martial arts. They did a lot of throwing. I had fun and my class liked it too.
I would say more about what he felt but Tyler didn’t really talk about it too much – he’s kind of embarassed to be singled out this way.
