It’s no secret that everyone is created as imperfect human beings because ultimately, that is the cause of our messy lives. Since we are flawed human beings, were more susceptible to stray away from God and his plan for each and every one of us. As a result, we desperately need God’s love and mercy to steer us back on the path he has already paved for us. We all let emotions take the best of us weather that’s anger, frustration, or even regrets, but the key is to trust in God and let him take take full control of your life because you will uncover the greatest gift of his divine eternal grace.

The author of Broken Spears tries to emphasize the fact that the it was not only the Spanish who played a role in the collapse of the Aztecs. One of the most prime reasons the Spanish were victorious was because they were worshiped and viewed as gods due to their presentation.

The Aztecs welcomed the Spanish with offerings and celebration, this gave the Spanish the idea that they had control over them and began to gather this power into ideas to take over their people. The Aztecs had a tremendous cultural difference from the Spanish when it came to their ritual ceremonies, they included a human sacrifice in their ritual and this repulsed the Spanish.
Broken Chain by Gary Soto is one of the two stories that I picked, the other being Seventh Grade still by Gary Soto have lots of differences and lots of similarities you notice only when you compare them.

But still they run into some hard times trying. They embarrass themselves in the process too.
Throughout history, there has always been a sort of controversy that has never been said out loud but have always been there. This pertains to when history is written and which account it should be drawn upon. Especially when a significant event has happened, and so when a side does not “win” at that event, they are then unfortunately left in the dust and forgotten by the way the manner of how that story is written. These perspectives, although will always follow the victorians shadow, until a light has been shined upon them. Gustavo Verdesio, claims in his preface, Colonialism Past and Present, Reading and Writing about Colonial Latin America Today, that this statement is true and must be shined up to be considered a historical text, especially regarding the colonization of any country.
Steven Furtick is not justified in building his multi-million-dollar home. His actions alone speak volumes about his inner guilt. Not to mention the many nondisclosure agreements he had members and volunteers sign, using the church to for his own personal gain and not living above reproach. Steven’s response to the reporters questioning him about this home was despicable.
Situated at the midpoint of the Psalter, Psalm 73, A psalm of Asaph, begins the third book of the five book collection of Psalms. The name Asaph is mentioned on several occasion within the Old Testament, such as Joah’s, a recorder in the court of Kings, father, however, the Asaph that the collection of Psalms, Psalm 73 - 83, are attributed to is most likely a musician appointed by David who sang at the dedication of Solomon’s Temple.(J.M.E 81) Mentioned on varied instances throughout the first and second chronicle, Aspah and a Asaph collection of Psalm appear to originate around the time of Hezekiah, although the content of these Psalms is unclear.

“The Minister’s Black Veil:” The Morals of Sinning The central themes of The Minister's Black Veil by Nathaniel Hawthorne is presented with a parable, a simple story illustrating a moral or religious lesson that makes the truth have a deeper meaning and easy to understand. Having to read both Nathaniel Hawthorne and Edgar Allen Poe was very interesting but, I decided to choose Nathaniel Hawthorne, "The Minister's Black Veil" because Nathaniel's story was more interesting, mysterious, and easier to understand than The House of Usher in my opinion since Nathaniel's character, Mr. Hooper, was mysterious throughout the whole story and had many different themes to his parable that involves his veil that can symbolize many reasons. There is an American
