At the presence of the first new Moon in March, the cleric gave the students an emetic sanitizing drink and had them wash their bodies with it. The beverage was a tea made of cedar branches, horsemint, stick and old tobacco. Once cleansed, they were setting off to the waterway where they drenched themselves seven times, then put on clean apparel. When they killed their first animal they then took the tip of the tongue to the minister to offer as a penance as a showing of respect.
One of my favorites is Horse Diaries told from the horse’s perspective. A true classic and my all time favorite was Black Beauty, I memorized up to page sixteen and would repeat the hardship over and over in my head. Then the most inspiring horse book I have read so far has been Misty of Chincoteague. It gave me the inspiration I had for my ten year Grandma Trip to Chincoteague to see the “Pony Swim”. My Grandma and I woke up at 3A.M.
“I says to myself, if a body can get anything they pray for, why don’t Deacon Winn get back the money he lost on pork? Why can’t the widow get back the snuff-box that was stole?”(Twain, 11). Religion This is satirizing religion. Twain goes harsh on religion in the first few chapters. This shows how most people that are introduced to religion don’t really understand the concept and practice it wrong.

Harper Lee proves another point to family, vulnerability. In To Kill a Mockingbird, the overall theme of family can be defined as destiny, determination, and vulnerability. Aunt Alexandria says every family has a “streak”. Within the confines of a small town where the same people have lived for generations, they have established the reputation for having “streaks.”. Harper Lee really begins to create her own definition of family in To Kill a Mockingbird by providing readers with a wide variety of them, that family is destiny, determination, and

The Right Reverend Deacon Doctor Zephariah Connerly the Third teaches Elijah the importance of tithing, the act of giving ten percent of what you make. Instead of the preacher getting one out of the ten fish, the preacher coerces Elijah into giving him his three largest bass and largest perch. The Preacher also doesn’t follow through on promises he makes like letting Elijah shoot his mystery gun. Every time they go into the woods, the Preacher has an excuse why Elijah can’t shoot it that time. The first time they go into the woods, the Preacher said he ran out of ammunition so Elijah couldn’t shoot the gun.
On the way to the farm I was able to catch up on a little sleep due to the fact that I had woken up at 4:30 in the morning which is too early for me but I guess that's what it takes. Then we had to find the stand which was even harder than driving to the farm because it was so dark and we could not see anything as we were walking to the stand. If we would have never found that stand in time I would have never shot my first deer on October 9th.But we finally found it after searching for about 20 minutes and also arguing with my dad about where I thought it was but as usual he is always right and he located the stand. It was pretty difficult to find the stand, but it paid off in the long run. I was so excited to find the stand and I could not wait to see a deer.

This month I am privileged to share an exclusive look into the life of Sandra Gathers, who I find to be extremely passionate and dedicated to all aspects of her life. Along with 3 sisters, Sandra was born and raised in Eutawville, SC. Most people are usually surprised to learn that she was raised on a working farm. Even though she had to work very hard as a young girl, it shaped the work ethics that she encompasses to this day. Sandra graduated from Holly Hill High where she was a member of the beta club, yearbook staff and library club.
