Your Word

A word is not a crystal, transparent and unchanged; it is the skin of a living thought and may vary greatly in color and content according to the circumstances and time in which it is used.
                                                         -Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr.

(Character) Name:


Directions: Please write a short paragraph about the word that best represents your life right now. Summarize the definition and explain how it represents your identity.
