This is a story written by 6 year old Makayla Joy Sitton. Makayla was very gifted and we will all miss her greatly. Her story is about how with great determination, a lot of hard work, and a heart full of love, you can accomplish your dreams- even if you are just a Little Bear. This story is just one of Makayla's. She wanted to be a dancer, a musician and a writer. In her short life she accomplished it all.
Thousands across the country have been inspired by Makayla's life story. This sweet, six year old girl stood boldly upon her faith and loved singing, dancing, and reading. On Nov. 26, 2009, shortly after sharing a special Thanksgiving Day message about God with her family, Makayla's life was taken in a deadly massacre. But the evil could not overtake the good. Makayla's light continues to shine bright for all to see. You, too, will be inspired as you read this tale of kindness created by a little girl who has touched the hearts of many.
