Ring of Fire

By: Sean M.
Maryland, Age 13

One day Zeus looked down on earth and said,''It looks rather boring, I'm going to put a ring of fire around it.''
Satisfied with his work Zeus took a long nap.
Days later people came to his temple complaining it was too hot and bright. Zeus didn't like it,but he took it away and relized earth looked fine the way it was.

However, the warmth from the ring was still there, so many people moved from there. Today very few people live where the ring used to be. The area today is now known as the Equator.
