JenniferESL: Oral Reading Fluency 7: "Experiencing Life" 

Which day would you live again? Would you want to be in the company of family? Or is there another person? 

If possible, we would hold all we could. Only our hands are small, and our wants are many. Clear your mind. You can value life by experiencing it, not holding it.
