His mother always calls Mr Clay whenever she needs to duplicate keys. Mr Clay is suffering from Alzheimer. He forgets his way home when he runs out of medicine. Although Cecil is skeptical at first, Newt convinces him that Mr Clay would do no harm. So he walks the old man home. He knows where Mr Clay lives as Mr Clay always parks his cherry red van in front of his house. Mrs Clay is relieved to see her husband return home safely.

OPINION

This shows that Newt is a helpful person. If I were Newt, I would do the same thing to my old neighbour if I find him wandering around. Without Newt’s action, Mr Clay would be lost and Mrs Clay would be so worried of her missing husband. His action has inspired me to be a helpful person to myfamily, friends and neighbours.

He always prepares breakfast for his family every morning. He understands that his parents and his famous brother are always busy and occupied. When he notices how busy and distracted Mom is, he volunteers to make breakfast every morning. Whenever Mom needs his help with her misplaced items, Newt will always be there because he cares about his mother. Mother is absent-minded. She depends on Newt to remind her about important events and help her to find her misplaced belongings. Dad is always busy answering the phone so Newt always pours him more coffee and fetch him a pencil. Chris always sleeps in as he is tired from football practice but Newt will always give Chris a daily wake-up call.

OPINION

This shows that Newt is a loving person. If I were in the same situation, I would be sad if my family is too busy to spend time with me.

His action has inspired me to be a loving person to my family.
