David and his family have just moved from Africa to the United States. He loves going to school, and he feels safe in his new apartment. For his birthday, he receives his first real soccer ball. But when he brings it to school, his classmates are rude and disrespectful, which prompts his teacher to ask David to share what his life was like in Africa. Working through his apprehension with thoughtful reflection, he prepares a presentation for his class that helps everyone realize why that soccer ball means so much to him.
