So then I realized that my dad was coming back from the war and I wonder if he was dead or if he was alive. Then all of a sudden I saw him coming well at least I thought that was him and I was so happy, well at least I thought that was my dad then I saw the man’s face and realized that was not my dad. Then I started to cry and the man stopped and asked me what was wrong and I told him then he said that he knew my dad and he thought that he was alive as well.

Then when we go to his car we started to head to his house and on the way back to his house we hear a car horn.

With all this going on we forgot all about father’s day, and we figured he probably won’t even want to celebrate because it will be his the first “Father’s Day” without his dad. Even though, we thought our dad wouldn’t be in the mood to celebrate father’s day, he actually showed us and told us that we can’t be upset forever because it is apart of life and that we are all going to “have to go” someday. He told us the exact same thing his father told him before. It was a very fun family get together, all my brothers and sisters were there to spend time and celebrate together as a family with my
Flying into Disaster September 11th 2001, a day full of tragedy and loss; a day all of us know by heart. It started as a normal day for the everyday citizen and american. But in reality, we all know it was a terrible and horrific day. Similar to the story of Romeo and Juliet, we know in the back of our mind what is going to happen, but we can’t change it or prevent it. The happily-bland day started of with people rushing around like a colony of ants working in chaotic harmony, each doing their own separate task.
The events of 911 were very tragic, and they affected the U.S. greatly, but more so in the time that followed September 11, 2001, many school teachers were confused on how to teach about the attacks.

When a country faces a massacre, everyone is affected directly and indirectly, whether they know it or not. One massacre that changed almost every person in the U.S. was 9/11. After 9/11, Muslims all around the country were treated poorly even by fellow citizens. I was a victim of this widespread ethnic abuse during my middle school years. Although 9/11 happened years before I was even in middle school, the aftermath was still lingering around me.
From that moment I knew that I have to become an engineer. Ten years after the moment when my father left El Salvador, my mother, my brothers and I came to the United States to be together with my father as a complete family again. Hurtful it was for me to leave an entire life in Central America, my customs, and plans for my life, just to come to a new country to begin a new life. Starting from zero was not easy, and at the beginning I was absolutely frustrated because when I came to the United States, the school decided to delay two years, due to I did not know English, they set me in 10th grade, when in El Salvador I was in 12th grade. Learning English was one of the
The absence of his biological father added to the yearn to know his roots, where he came from and who he was, as he became older. James struggled with identity for a great deal of his life after his stepfather, who seemed to be the emotional stability for the family, died. James was supposed to take care of the family after his stepfather died, but instead he dropped out of school, ran the streets, and picked up a bad habit of his stepfather’s- drinking. You would think that because James had good influences in his life that he would immediately take on that role after being taught, but James fell apart and had to learn to become a man on his own. Eventually, James found himself and began to transform into the man his fathers had taught him to
