When I out grew my Shetland pony, my mother and I decided it was time to start looking for a horse for me to continue my riding career on. We had no idea at that time, that horse would be a starving, broke to only the basics, and a recent failure of a pre-purchase veterinarian exam, due to an injury to his fetlock. When we went to meet Hank, who was eventually renamed to Juble, I knew immediately that he was the horse for me, my mom wasn’t as convinced. Much like myself, my mom has a huge heart for animals, especially the ones in harmful environments, which means after minimal begging, she agreed to purchase Juble. This began the long process of helping him put on more weight, helping his swollen fetlock heal, and gaining his trust. This was six years ago, and I’m proud to say that Juble and I are two-time State

The bustling society we live in makes our lives fast-paced and abundant in people we meet. We are at the height of our traveling capabilities, which has only further advanced our society and the way we go about our daily lives. However, some suggest that our traveling capabilities have actually done more harm than good. Perry Patetic argues that the mobility of our society has harmed our close relationships, drawing us apart from our loved ones. Patetic states, “The advantages to living in such a highly mobile society are thus outweighed by the disadvantages.” Patetic claims that mobility has deteriorated our close relationships. This claim, however, is in many regards absurd. The vastly mobile society we live in gives us better opportunity
In life some feel the need to prove something to others. That they are better, stronger, or even more intelligent. Whatever the case may be people will go through extreme measures to prove themselves. But who do we really need to prove anything to? Is it our parents? Friends? Enemies? Or is it even ourselves?

“The Problem of Evil” is simply the question, why does God allow evil to happen? God is omnipotent, omniscient, all-loving, and rational, therefore why does evil exist? There is either no God or he is not what we think he is, since evil could be prevented by him with no risk. Atheists and anti-theodicist see a problem with the idea that God could prevent evil. They believe that because God is so powerful and perfect, that he would not allow such immoral actions to be done. On the other hand, theists like Swinburne, believe that evil is necessary for important reasons such as that it helps us grow and improve. In this paper I will argue that the theist is right, because the good of the evil in this specific case on problems beyond one’s control, outweighs the bad that comes from it.

War brings loss to both soldiers and civilians, which establishes many difficulties for people long after the war has passed. War is relative to the person experiencing it; a war that ends with a peace treaty for one could be a life long mental fight for another. Jobs, homes, and loved ones are subject to loss during times of war. As resources and goods are shipped overseas, people living on domestic home fronts suffer the backlash of the fighting. The ones who inevitably experience the most loss are the soldiers fighting within the war. Experiencing things such as the loss of comrades; the will to fight; mental fortitude; and the will to live. War may bring solution to a problem and bring about peace, but war is always a losing battle in which
A textbook example of this is the animated television show The Clone Wars (Dave Filoni, George Lucas 2008-2015). This show fits chronologically between the second and third ‘prequel’ movies Attack of the Clones (George Lucas, 2002) and Revenge of the Sith (George Lucas, 2005). The show bridged the time gap between the two movies, allowing dedicated viewers to fill in the gaps that the original story left and learn a more detailed story. It also bridged the generation gap for viewers, as Star Wars fans are typically older, or young adults, as that is when the movies originally came out. This show is animated and intended for children, allowing the franchise to hook younger viewers, as well as providing more engaging narrative for the very active audiences who tend to consume all the content they can find (Loads 2014).
