Me and your father went to trouble to get you and Brother to church every Sunday." (Hansberry 1.1.507). Mama continuously shows her dedication towards God by going to church and making her children go to church as well. Mama states that it was a trouble to get her kids to school every Sunday but that didn't deter her from wanting to go. She pushed passed the difficulties and made going the to church a weekly routine for the family.
National Honor Society requires hard work in both academics and community involvement. It has helped me to not only place academics as a priority, but also to prioritize being involved in the environment around me. I have always been very involved in my community because the church that I have been a member of since birth has always promoted putting others before myself. I have gone on multiple mission trips with my church that have completely changed my view of the world. Those mission trips have and continue to help me to see what I have and what I am capable of doing.
In Particular, I began to notice that I am getting old enough to understand that I am all I got to look up to and I don’t want to set a bad image for myself. Also, my decisions are what I make them to be, no one can choose my actions for me, so I have to choose them wisely. Admittedly, I got back into the church and also going back and finish school to better myself and my education. However, now I open my eyes every day knowing I am going to have a good day with no negativity, I have my family back helping me but I let the friends go completely. Now I am looking forward to furthering my education after high school and taking care of my family the way I always wanted.
A love from a child to their parents is strong as well. The misplaced anger was what put a wedge between everyone. In conclusion, breaking this curse has been a top priority of mine. Now that I have my own family I know what to do and what not to do. I understand the issues that my family has and decide to be more loving, accepting, and forgiving to everyone, but mostly to my own children.
"Good job son” or "That’s my boy" would be yelled from the dugout to my teammates but never told to me personally. At that time I decided to turn the absence of a father into action and strive to be successful and help others. My family’s strong faith has played an enormous part in this mentality. We are all extremely involved in volunteering. My mother volunteers as a children’s teacher, my grandmother is in the choir and my eighty two year old great-grandmother is a greeter.
Many people believe they should not. Why should an individual who has made poor choices have the opportunity to have an education, while many people still today who are free and are good citizens still don't have that opportunity. For one, a good amount of money is put for these inmates to have supplies for school like pencils, pens, paper etc. Also, a good number of fundraising goes to those needs and also the need of textbooks that can be pretty pricey. But still the number one and most important expect is the Teacher who willingly allow themselves to be around what you could call dangerous
I have already talked about Simon being a walking miracle, but I haven’t talked about his relationship with Rebecca. Rebecca basically took on the responsibility of mothering Simon. She was a gift from God to Simon. She made him feel welcome in this world when everyone was yelling at him that he was a mistake. She also came to his rescue when the Sunday school lady was keeping him late.
In the beginning of “Margery Kempe”, a spiritual autobiography, Kempe uses imagery to portray her devotion to God as well as the process of moving away from her wifely duties. The nature of her relationship with Christ is all consuming. Kempe has been trying to persuade her husband to let her leave after the death of her first child. After unsuccessful tries, Kempe finally has convinced her husband to let her leave him after having fourteen children. “And make my body free to God, so that you never make any claim on me requesting any conjugal debt after this day as long as you live— and shall eat and drink on Fridays at your bidding.” (NA 431) Once Kempe leaves she begins her spiritual journey and embarks on many pilgrimages.
We have been taking turns taking care of her. Tu always placed our mother’s interest first and foremost. He knows our mother’s only wish is to spend the remaining of her lifetime with all her kids/grandkids, therefore, he had initiated a family gathering every Sunday just to see my mother’s smile. When he is around our mother, he tried very hard to keep his tears in for he does not want to disappoint her nor know how to tell her of his wrong doing. She has already suffered enough battling with her own illness,
I also know that discrimination is not fair, so I set an example by having all types of friends, no matter their color, race, or gender. I do not see a difference between people because at the end of the day, I feel that we are all human beings and should be treated equally. At school, teachers constantly pick me as their team leader whenever a task is being done because they know that I will get the job done and that they can depend on me without worrying about the outcome. Respect is something my parents have always taught me and even though sometimes it is hard to stay quiet, I respect everyone around me and I believe that even though I’m still young, people do respect my ideas because they see that I respect them equally. On a day to day basis, I try to use all the different values that I have learned throughout my life and that is because that’s the kind of person I am and I try my best to learn something new everyday, even though sometimes I may not agree with the ways, I know that at the end, it will help make me a better person.
