I’m a published author, didn’t you know? Apparently in 1991 I wrote some goofy story about an Eagle and they published it into a little bound book. Just found it in a pile of stuff from my mother. Kinda funny. I was 8 so be gentle…
The Legend of the Lightning Eagle
by: Randy A Aldrich
Published in the Marion Elementary Publishing Center 1991
A long time ago, there was an Eagle who lived in a huge nest. He loved to fly above a big open field.
One day when he was flying he decided to go into town. When he did, people saw him and tried shooting him. Then he flew back to the field.
The next week he went back, but during that period he learned to fly very, very fast.
When they tried shooting him, he flew as fast as the wind.
When he went back to his nest during the night, people thought of a name for him. “It is done then. His name is Lightning Eagle,” said the counselor.
They told everybody in the town. The very next day some kids started a club. It was called the Lightning Eagle Club.
That day he flew into town. He was very surprised because no one shot at him. “Why aren’t they shooting?” he thought.
The people in the Town yelled, “We’re not going to shoot you. We even made a name for you — Lighting Eagle.”
About the author: I am 8 years old. I like to play baseball during summer vacation. I like to go for rides on our boat and go to the thousand islands.
It is done then.
