Editors Note: In November, 2012, I taught a class at the Mighty Writers, a non-profit who’s mission is to “teach Philadelphia kids to think and write with clarity, so self-esteem grows and success is achieved at school, at work and in life.” I was curious how children would see and write about their experiences in Philadelphia. The first writer is Layia, who chose to write about a pink door she saw on a short walking tour of the MW’s Graduate Hospital neighborhood.
