16: "Warm yourself by the fire, son, And the morning will come soon. I'll tell you stories of a better time, In a place that we once knew. Before we packed our bags And left all this behind us in the dust, We had a place that we could call home, And a life no one could touch. | Don't hold me up now, I can stand my own ground, I don't need your help now, You will let me down, down, down! Don't hold me up now, I can stand my own ground, I don't need your help now, You will let me down, down, down! | So open your eyes child, Let's be on our way. Broken windows and ashes Are guiding the way. (Chorus) Keep quiet no longer, We'll sing through the day, Of the lives that we've lost, And the lives we've reclaimed | We are the angry and the desperate, The hungry, and the cold, We are the ones who kept quiet, And always did what we were told. But we've been sweating while you slept so calm, In the safety of your home. We've been pulling out the nails that hold up Everything you've known. | (chorus x2) Don't hold me up... (I don't need your help, I'll stand my ground) Don't hold me up... (I don't need your help) No! No! No! Don't hold me up! (I don't need your help, I'll stand my ground) Don't hold me up! (I don't need your help, I'll stand my ground) Don't let me down, down, down, down, down!" | ~Rise Against: Prayer of the Refugee
17: This song reminds of you a lot because whenever you were playing a game or doing something and someone asked for your help you always replied with "I don't need your help" and if you did want us to help you then you would place all your trust in us and believe that we wouldn't "let you down". The song lyrics "We are the angry and the desperate, the hungry and the cold, we are the ones who kept quiet and always did what we were told." relate to you because at the moment your just a child and we don't know what kind of person you are going to be. This song sends a good message because it can be a reminder that soldiers fought for our freedom and fought for us, which is shown in the lyrics "But we've been sweating while you slept so calm, in the safety of your home." and "Let's be on our way. Broken windows and ashes are guiding the way." meaning that we would never would have been where we are if they had not fought for us. I also believe that you will like this song because it stands for independence, and freedom.
18: A hug a day keeps the monsters away.
20: Qwyn. Since the day you were born, our entire family has been there for you. We have helped you along, played with you, laughed with you. We have been there for your best moments and for some of your worst moments, and we will continue to be there to pick you up when you fall. I believe that you will grow up to be whatever you want. There is no limit on what you can and can't do. If you need help on the way all you have to do is ask and there will always be someone to help you. Your family will always have your back. I hope you will look back on this book when you get older and see your childhood. Huw and I, Huw especially, have taken hundreds of pictures of your childhood to help you remember what a great child you were, and what a joy it was to have a cousin like you. I hope you grow up to be an amazing creative person, and let nothing stop you or bring you down. You were a great cousin to play and have fun with, and I hope you will continue to have as much fun when your grown up
