Denine H. from California sends this picture drawn by her son. She writes:

My son's 6th grade teacher gave the kids a vocabulary assignment and the word was "issue." He had to give the definition, use the word in a sentence, etc., and draw a picture illustrating the word. When I saw what he had written and drawn, I just knew I had to share it with you!
