e-Buddies Speak Out!

We want to hear from you! So, each quarter, we pose a different question to you -- the e-Buddies Community -- and we publish your responses!

This is a special edition of e-Buddies Speak Out! Last month, we asked you to send us a poem that describes what e-Buddies means to you. We got so many great poems from so many people, and we wanted to be sure that everyone could see how creative our volunteers are!

Here's what you sent us:

One letter at a time
By Kari K. from Illinois

One letter at a time
Bonds are formed
A friendship begins
This is how we learn about one another
This is how we grow
This is how we realize we're really all the same
This is how we change the world
One letter at a time.

EBUDDIES TO ME MEANS FRIENDSHIP
AND A LASTING FRIENDSHIP
I HAVE STUGGLED FINDING TRUE FRIENDS
BUT E BUDDIES CHANGED THAT FOR ME
THANKS E BUDDIES
--

By Maya B. from California

What e-buddies means to me is having an friendship online that I can connect with and keep in contact with.
I think it is a great program to develop a friendship from another country.
I really enjoy my e-Buddy a whole lot.
e-Buddies develop a great chance for people that don't know the internet to learn how to use the internet.
It is one of my favorite programs.
I feel connected with my buddie like she is really fun to talk to and it is a great development of a friendship.

By Hillary B. from Florida

All around the world E-Buddies come from,
And before you know it, great friends you've become.

I joined at first for my friend Jack,
To provide support and friendship, To give something back.

I'm so glad I did,
My heart gets a lift,
Each note I receive,
Is a treasured gift.

--

By Janel S. from California

I think e-Buddies is great and friends are great too.
The earth is like a friendship sea of clouds to people who really need you, I know friendship is neat but hard to come by sometimes.
I am kind of a loner always have been but the misson is so cool to help find friends who really have a hard time with that i now have two friends who really like me a lot.
Please try to help more people make friends and keep them.
And remember, friends are like four leaf clovers, hard to come by, easy to find, and lucky to have.

By Bill H. from Maryland

A Mission of e-Buddies is to be orgainized,

--

By Jessica A. from Florida

Never did I think I'd have a friend like this.
Someone who cares and gives me bliss.
She may be a little different, but that's not the point.
She is my best friend and has my heart.
She's my best buddy and we'll never part.

--

By Kayla B. from Arizona

Let the stars in the sky
Remind us of man's compassion
Let us love till we die and
God Bless us everyone
In your heart there's a light
As bright as a star in heaven
Let it shine through the night and
God bless us everyone

Till each child is fed,
Till all men are free
Till the world becomes a family

Star by star in the sky and
Kindness by human kindness
Let me love till I die and
God bless us everyone

By Melissa A. from California

I don't feel cruddy
Or like a fuddy-duddy
With my Best Buddy

Poem to e-Buddies

Rooms full of strangers
becoming fast friends
connecting online
out of both ends
from one place to another
this is not any other
so e-Buddies is the best
and on with the rest.

By Jean S. from California

An e-Buddies friend
As you'll learn at e-beat
Is a one-to-one friendship
Using email each week

So delightful to read
What your e-buddies "say"
Then you promptly respond
It's the e-Buddies way!

--

By Nick B. from Iowa

We talk about our Lives together
We Bond together
We are Friends
We go to Movies together, and we hang out together
We do not care about our differences
Because we are Best Buddies Forever

--

By Dorothy W. from Massachusetts

I'm a person,
You're a person -
Let's be friends!
If we didn't even try
Because we just seemed too different
We'd have missed a chance
For real human connection.
e-Buddies made us equal from the start, and allowed us the gift of friendship.

--

By Todd G. from Florida

Virtual communication,
But genuine connection,
Separate cities,
But similar interests,
Different lives,
Both people... friends... buddies.

Cleansing the Pollution
By Paige L. from Alabama

Few can really understand the tragedy that is at hand.
There are many students who just want a relationship that is prudent.
Anyone can be a hero to those who are often mocked as being "zeros."
But wait, there is a solution. e-Buddies is working to cleanse this pollution.
A pollution that has been building for centuries is slowly diminishing.
Volunteers strive to correspond with their e-buddy in an effort to form a bond.
A bond many refuse to build becomes a life-changing thrill one cannot get through any other guild.

What is a buddy?
Someone who can be -

E-BUDDIES
By Judy H. from California

I RESPECT YOU AS AN EQUAL, TOGETHER WE ARE A TEAM,

A long day, whether eventful or uneventful,
A friend to share with, whether close or far,
A nice feeling, whether of belonging or being loved,
Knowing your NOT alone, whether everyone knows it or just you know it,
What is it that could possibly do all this?
E-buddies, it's amazing, it's unique,
It's like no other, Thats why I participate,
I make a difference in someone's life, and I receive a friend.

Friendship is a gift
By Maeghan D. from Texas

Sometimes it's far
Sometimes it's near
Sometimes it's hard
and sometimes it's weird
But when have friends all over
it makes it an easier shift
because once you touch someone's heart
you realize friendship is a gift.

--

By Trever S. from California

We appreciate the e-buddy communication exchanges.
It's like a way to play "be-friend" online
and to practice acquainting more with a pal.
Hearing someone's interest in us is encouraging.
Also, asking for more information about a new friend
regularly, teaches how to show reciprocal interest.
Thanks to e-Buddies for this opportunity to express
and understand the commitment of friends to friendship.

--

By Kirk A. from Pennsylvania

What Does This Mean TO Me!
My e-Buddy and I share lots of cool events with each other,
Phillies games, cookouts, favorite TV shows
and even some traits of our mothers,
we both have cats, she has 8 -
I have 2 but their just as great,
And we also share what celebs we like.
She likes Hilary Duff and so do I.
There's a few way that we can relate.
It is also cool to write to someone in a different state.
e-Buddies is terrific, I like it a lot,
e-Buddies is really hot.

Arms across the Country
By Lucille W. from Ontario

I have been going to school.
My teacher asked if I wanted to have an e-Buddy.
She found this place where I can write a letter to someone in another country.
I have been enjoying this place; it makes me feel like I am putting my Arms across the Country.
I am in one Country and my e-Buddy is in another.
To me it's like giving my e-Buddy a big hug.
It is like you have known them for a long time
Two people saying hi to one other.
You put your hand across to shake the other person's hand.
You may not know how to say hi to a friend that lives across the country from you.
They may have a place in this beautiful country and you may wonder what you have in common.
I have been with e-Buddies for three years now and I love writing.
It's like your arms are reaching across the country.
If you like to write then you should try.
