When 9/11 happen a lot of people were worried as I did an interview on my teacher and I can see that it does still affects us now in the future. When I was interviewing my teacher he said his mom didn't let him go to school , he lived in Fresno and the attack was in New York. This is important because even though it can be anywhere around the world it can still affect families. Therefore Fear can be harsh because if
Passing through drugs, turf wars, starvation, and being poor. All those obstacles tempted him to give up. He was determined enough to finish what he started. Experiencing impacting situations, that would later lead him to accomplish his goal. On another note, self esteem is a huge influence in a person’s life.
Everytime he learns something new about the past he is overcome by the will to share all of his mental experiences with the rest of the population, but he knows he is not able to do this. His awareness about what could be versus what is cause him more and more heartache every moment. On top of this The Giver begins to transfer “the painful memories” to Jonas where he learns “physical and emotional pain experienced through injury, loss, grief, rage, and cruelty” (Zirkle). He goes through “suffering” and “even Violence” when he receives a memory of a dying soldier on a battlefield (Chamberlain). The effect that this particular memory has on Jonas is portrayed through this sentence “overwhelmed by pain, he laid there in the fearsome stench for hours, listened to the men and
I was living in 300 sq ft house and breathing toxic air for 18 years, I know you can’t imagine this life because you were born in the big house and fresh air. Moreover, we know many races are suffering from discrimination, but I think there are two ways that can help us to live in a better future. Media can raise awareness of racism and correct racist thoughts, media is the most effective way to spread the message because media is everywhere around people and people believe it. And the true cure for racism is through education for our new generations, education is key to cure racism because like I said no one is born racist, the education decides what kind of person you will be. Also, I would like to say California is heading towards the right direction, I seldom see racist in California, I think the reason is there are a lot of people from different races,

“I know several years after these attacks, travel went down to these places; these high impact place that people were afraid of being bombed or attacked again.” This quote from an American citizen made years after the attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon shows that fear still lives in America even years later. This person also expressed how as a child and even as a young adult they were not afraid to fly. After the attacks on 9/11, they have yet to get back in an airplane. When she goes on vacation she only drives. Most people wanted to make things go back to the way they were before these attacks.
In real life there are many hardships that face us everyday, making our lives more difficult. Hardships are something that happens in everyone 's life, they teach us valuable lessons that make us wiser by giving us a different perspective on life. The experiences that many of the first colonists endured when they first came to the new land; America, were extreme. They came from a place where they had all of the materials and equipment they needed, into a place where they were they were fighting to stay alive everyday. They struggled to find shelter, and food.
My Collapse and Restitution When people see me walking through the halls of school, or walking down the street they may see me as an underachiever, or even a slacker; if they had seen me last year or the year before perhaps they would have been right. My Freshman and Sophomore year I struggled to pass many of my classes. I had begun to give up on anything school related for the purpose of "enjoying my youth while I still could". Back in November of my Freshman year my Uncle Gary passed away suddenly of a heart attack which made me begin to realize the importance of living a full life and doing what is important to you. To tell the truth, I despise the idea of becoming someone who works in an office for the entirety of their life in a dead

One teen recounted their experience saying, ‘My mum pleaded with me and said that if I didn 't stop I 'd be in and out of jail for the rest of my life. I left school last year when I was 16 and went to college. I finish my apprenticeship next year and I 'll be able to work.” This teenager figured out being in a gang is the wrong choice, left the gang, and changed their life around.
I have not thought about how many children are here now, smuggled into the United States at young ages, who struggle with the insecurities of belonging somewhere. The fear associated with being deported or their undocumented family members being deported is real and heart wrenching. In my ignorance, I did not know about the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) that President Obama launched during his administration. This program brought much security and relief to many young people to openly get jobs and a driver’s license for eligible undocumented immigrants under 31 years old. However, as one of the recipients of this grant pointed out, DACA comes with an expiration date, with no guarantees of renewal, nor a pathway to citizenship.
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
