A vast majority of the undocumented who come to the United States want to further their education. While the desire to learn and become educated is there, the help from the government, schools and other students is not there. Undocumented students do not receive the same financial aid, or the support that students who are documented receive. These students in some cases cannot even do anything with their degree once they graduate. How in the world can one expect these students to feel the desire to further their education.
Kate began to warm up to Annie and wondered how a young girl like her would have enough confidence to teach Helen. Annie persuaded Kate and as a result, she gave her the job to take care of Helen. Kate seems to like that Annie has a sense of humor, and this can allow for both women to relate to each other. Kate feels good about Annie and welcomed her into her home when she said: “...We’ll do all we can to help, and to make you feel at home. Don’t think of us as strangers, Miss Annie” (p.30).
Although the first amendment guarantee’s freedom of speech, the guarantee is not absolute. There should be an expectation to the first amendment. Another aspect of freedom of speech is expressive conduct (such as flag burning). The supreme court has grappled with whether laws banning expressive conduct are permissible under the first amendment. This court is in favor of Texas because, is it not right to burn a flag, with military people died to protect our flag, it is a symbol of freedom, and it will cause more problems in the world.
A role model is someone you are inspired by, someone you look up to. I believe role models come from the heart and they make you strive to be the best you can be. I look up to my older sister, Danaka, she used to treat me like she was my second mother. Danaka always cared for me and picked me up when I fell down. We used to laugh, play, and have fun together when we were kids.

She got a handkerchief in that purse should someone sneeze, a mint to keep a child happy, a rosary in case anyone wants to pray” (Alvarez 97). The quote is very important because it shows her motherly characteristics, and how she reaches out to others. She is willing to help anyone, and because she is so caring. Patria has a side of her, who will always do the right thing. Patria’s protective personality makes her
Even though assisted suicide was not discussed throughout the sixteen to eighteen hundreds, ethical philosophers investigated the roots of human morals in an attempt to create an overarching rule that would help determine if “death with dignity” is morally justified. One such philosopher is Immanuel Kant, who in his Metaphysics of Morals, argues his belief in deontological ethics. Kant believes that “good actions” are those that follow your moral duty based upon the categorical imperative. According to Kant, the categorical imperative is a golden rule that states that any moral action must be a part of the universal law.
Ethical egoism is a normative theory that states an individual 's actions should be accomplished from the perspective to maximize one’s self-interest. Ethical egoism requires that people give themselves special treatment and that they have a task to fill their self-interest. Ethical egoism says that a person should only act when the action benefits themself, and they should, therefore, avoid actions when the act they are trying to fulfill provides no benefits for the individual. When an action that one performs is wrong it seems the opposite of the action performed would seem to be correct. If helping a person would prevent your own self-interest, this would seem to make it morally permissible for a person to perform harm to others in situations where their self-interest would benefit from the action.
One of the most important relationships humans have is the relationship they have with their mothers. The bond between a mother and her daughter starts from the day she has her baby girl. When a little girl grows up, she idolizes her Mom. She wants to look like her, act like her, and even do exactly what she does. When someone has a positive connection with their mother, they feel like they can open up in any way to her.
Honestly, no I do not believe that the confederate battle flag is a symbol of racism or hatred. Personally I believe that anyone who thinks that the confederate flag is “racist” seriously needs a history lesson. In this essay, you will learn the history of the confederate flag, if it actually is a symbol of hatred, and what the United States plan to do to keep the country calm. The flag as we know it was born not as a symbol, but as a very practical banner.
For example, I took care of that lady when she was hospice and the family would always see me attending to there love one, and then when I was finished they would say thank you. However, what really got to me was that they said there family has high regards and respect for you cause you show a lot a dedication to making sure they feel normal as possible and not just a person who is forgotten. This is what a reward would feel like according to one of my interviews from Lucy Denz who I work with. She said when the family sees you as not a worker but a family friend is the most important thing in your work life as a CNA cause you were able to break a wall the family had up for fear and protection cause they don’t know you well enough at first. Then, as time goes on they see your compassion and dedication to the patience and that you never forget about them even if you’re super busy you always remember them and say your sorry and then start a lovely conversation and encouraging them to do there Activities of daily living.
He says both students and professors need to work together in order to keep the true meaning of college, according to him is to nourish a world of intellectual culture. Edmundson states in his essay that students lack intellectual curiosity. He blames the schools by saying colleges in America are using the consumer mentality to increase their enrollment, but this is affecting the quality of education students are receiving. But he also blames the students for not challenging their conventional thought in fear of being invalidated.
A philosophy cannot be binding if it does not contain inherent consequences for those who break its rules. In this chapter, Mill says he will explore what built-in sanctions utilitarianism can provide; in other words, what punishments the philosophy might impose upon those who do not abide by it. Mill notes a potential challenge to the utilitarian system: if a person is presented with a first principle that general custom does not deem fundamental, that person will see no reason to respect or value that principle. Rather, the corollary moral ideas based on the first principle will seem to have a stronger foundation (because they enjoy general acceptance) than the foundation itself. Mill says that this challenge will simply persist for utilitarianism
Today I learned a lot from the presentations in class from some philosophers theories and my classmate's opinions on these theories. Utilitarianism was one of my favorites and this theory seemed to care for people the most and how they are affected by a situation. I favored this idea because it is very close to my very own personality because before I take a serious action I put a lot of thought into consideration before proposing a decision. I am very considerate of others feeling and I think about how will my actions make this person feel or will it affect others so I guess that is why I took the concept of utilitarianism very personal and found this very interesting.
