I Remember

Read by Rabbi Neil Blumofe

I remember playing Nintendo 64.

I remember first grade.

I remember flying in a plane.

But I don’t remember my first breath.

I remember birthday parties.

I remember going to Mexico.

I remember my first day in the U.S.,

I felt sad for the first week

but then I got more used to it.

I remember going to school for the first time

on a cold and windy day without sun.

I remember going to New Mexico and New Orleans.

I remember the weather,

mild with a bright and clear sky.

I remember getting an Xbox 360

and finally getting my own bedroom.

I remember what a beautiful day it was

when my baby brother was born.

I remember holding him and playing with him.

I remember him crying

and his first word.

I remember all the days we spent together.
