Dear Haruka,

Hi! My name is Casie. I go to Delmar Elementary School I am 10 years old. The reason why we do not have many walkers, trucks , and cars is because we live in a neighborhood. Sometimes we have time to walk but it has to be in the early morning or in the late late afternoon. Not a lot of people drive cars in America it was because we go to school in a neighborhood. Do you go to school across a highway or close to one? We have Halloween. Do you have Halloween? I hope you enjoy the message send me back soon!!!!!!!!!!! I have 1 brother he is 14. I have 1 dog and a hamster.
