My desire to become a Police Officer has driven me to become a Morgan Hill Police Cadet to receive first hand knowledge of this career. This specific goal of mine has open many doors for me in my Law Enforcement dream. I have came across multiple engaging opportunities that have persuaded me to attain my goal. My ambition has lead me to desire a path in which I can not only protect lives from danger and threat but be apart of the thin blue line family. A family that's a symbol of courage, and reflects the depth strength to
Duckworth declared: “grit is passion and perseverance for very long-term goals.” It is vital that college students watch Angela Lee Duckworth’s TED talk on “Grit: The Power of Passion and Perseverance” because it will help them narrow down a passion, improve their chances of graduating, and help them conquer life. Perhaps, college students proclaim their majors but struggle with narrowing down a passion and
Jack fought against Dwight who constantly berated Jack and told Jack that he isn’t a good boy. Hooks fought against her family’s belief that a woman was meant to be a subservient wife to her husband, Hooks fought against cultural and racial stereotypes, and finally Hooks fought against social class prejudice. Both Jack and Hooks fought very different, yet similar, fights. They fought against their families and the social standard, but they also fought against themselves. Their fight for themselves was a long battle, and even though their lives didn’t turn out the way they imagined it would, they both ended up having a life where they could live as their authentic self.

He followed in his mother 's teachings. Always alluding back to what she always told him growing up.

More programs such as this is desperately needed in order for these women to form a foundation to build upon to one day understand themselves that they too are somebody and can be whatever they work hard for. In the film Healing Neen, trauma is the main theme that has affected so many in the system. Many women reveal the feelings of hopelessness and being powerless. They feel as though they are worth nothing and they do not know how to make good decisions for themselves because the drugs are considered an effective numbing treatment.
When war no longer threatens there will still be a need for leaders to, as Kennedy said, “explore the stars, conquer the deserts, eradicate disease, tap the ocean depths and encourage the arts and commerce.” The future will require leaders to fight different types of struggles, against global problems like poverty, hunger, oppression, and climate change. JROTC continues to mold young men and women to not only be aware of these problems, but capable and courageous enough to come up with and apply solutions. With what I have learned through JROTC, I am now part of a legacy of leadership.
As I work my way up through the ranks taking on new responsibilities, I will be prepared for the basic needs of an officer. With an officer job, I could respond to more serious and upgraded duties to work successfully and effectively as a team captain. I also feel it is my obligation as an American citizen to pay homage to our veterans and country. It is important to keep the legacy of America alive, and as an officer I can see myself on the forefront. After seeing the multitude of honor veterans receive, my donation to them would be to continue their labor of freedom in the Navy.
I take every setback as a lesson and determine what my attitude towards life. Am I going to be depressed during the battle and take everyone else down with me, or am I going to be the light that holds everyone up? Perseverance taught me to carry a smile like my nurses and my mom. Nurses were my best friends in the hospital. They encouraged me to keep fighting because they saw the strength in me that I neglected.
But I fought through and overcame all of that just like Wonder Woman. She inspires me to keep going forward no matter how much people doubted me. But I would always remember how Wonder Woman would never let anyone take her down. She had that fight in her that made her unstoppable against her enemy's. She also loves peace.

Mia’s D’Var Torah Shabbat Shalom: Do you know anything about war? My Torah portion is about war and who should go to war. How many people do you know have gone to war? I have lots of family members who have served in the military and some have even gone to war.
If one would want to get a feel for the era he lives in, for the generation, he would only need to turn on the radio to hear the music, to go to the mall to see the clothes, and to turn on the television and see a boxing match. Despite the rising popularity of cage fighting, boxing is a sport that still captures the imaginations of fight-fans around the world, especially in the United States, and has done so since the sport first originated. The past two centuries, though, the sport of boxing has placed a more central role in American sports, for some of the first African-American world champions earned and first gained their recognition as all-time great athletes in not baseball or basketball, but in boxing. With this being said, boxing is also a sport that has mirrored the existing conditions and
