A Million Dollars Richer

One day as I picked up the newspaper I started flipping through, when I saw a writing contest in the paper. Since I loved writing I read it right away. It said: If you had a million dollars what would you do with it? The prize was $20. I thought about an idea for a long time, when I finally started to write. This is what I wrote on that very day.


To my dear friend Angela,

I have a question for you, that I know you will answer it the way your heart would speak for this question. I have a question that everyone would dream of having. What would you do if you had a million dollars? Would you give some money to a charity? Or buy a grand house for you? Would you get some pets? Or would you give it throughout your family? You might not mind and just live your life normally, or would you be greedy and think that you deserve everything because you have one million dollars? I could go on and on but truthfully, I know that you would think about the money, and what worth it has for you, because your the person with the money not anyone else. What you do with the money is your business not anyone else's. But what I would do with a million dollars? I would just be a million dollars richer!

From your old pal, Ashley

I thought and reread what I wrote and put it in an envelope, sealed it, stamped and addressed it and sent it in the mail. I didn.t care if I won, but I got my thoughts through to other people. If I won, I would be happy and I would share the letter with Angela.

A few weeks later, as I flipped through the newspaper once again, I saw that the winners had been announced for the million dollars writing competition and they had the winners article in the newspaper. It was mine! I was so surprised because I didn.t expect to win. I just wrote my feelings down. But for now, I was just $20 richer.
