It was only eight o’clock, but the sky was as dark as night when the cold and rocky bus ride I had endured for more than three hours finally came to an end. I traveled to Alaska with my mission team hoping to learn about the Iñupiat tribe and to evangelize about the gospel. Deeply buried near the edges of the Bering Sea, the Iñupiat tribesmen fish, farm, and hunt daily to provide for their families. They surprised our mission team by welcoming us with two large pots; one filled with walrus meat and another filled with their traditional dish of shimmered and shredded fish mixed with berries. Their hospitality was unexpected and helped me to experience their culture from the inside—something that I could never have experienced from a National

The pastor broke the silence by making a few announcements about various activities: a dinner at so and so’s house after service, a Krispy Kreme fundraiser for the youth trip, the total offering taken in Sunday school and so on and so forth. Following this was something totally new again. Pastor Neil asked the members to stand and recite the Apostles Creed with him. I’d never heard of the Creed, let alone knew the words to it. So I listened as the voices, young and old, high and low, recited what they believed in and how they interpreted the Holy Bible.

The jungle of Papua New Guinea, or PNG, is so dense it would take a healthy man with a machete a week to travel three miles. It took Dylan Barstow’s grandfather two weeks to be found by villagers after an airplane crash by the Sepik River, on the north side of PNG. Dylan was shipped off to his uncle’s house and forced to go on the expedition to find the lost wreckage of his grandfather’s WWII bomber, Second Ace, during the summer. This was punishment for having been caught on a joyride, in a stolen car, inside a junkyard within Wisconsin. Soon after staying in Uncle Todd’s condo in Oregon for a few weeks, the duo traveled to Port Moresby in PNG and meet up with the rest of their backpacking companions to initiate their hunt for the lost plane.
The first hanging, the Warsaw native who had been in the camp for three years, was fully grown and filled with defiance towards his German captors. He showed no fear of his executors, refused to be blindfolded and before his death, shouted out his denunciation of the action being taken. On page 62 of Night by Elie Wiesel it states “The hangman...was about to signal his aides to pull the chair from under the young man's feet when the latter shouted, in a strong and calm voice: "Long live liberty! My curse on Germany! My curse!
Imagine cutting and hauling 100 to 150 pound logs in the cold and rain for hours and hours that takes lots of grit. My brother and I offered to help some friends cut wood for winter. So, after school, we hopped on the bus and started our 30 minute journey to the country. We arrived at the house and noticed how dreary and cold it was getting. A long wait ensued for our friend’s dad to get home from work so we could hook up the trailer and get the equipment rounded up.
One of my experiences resonated me about the film was with non-white privilege discrimination happened about three years ago. My family goes on a camping trip yearly as our family tradition. We reserved 6 campsites at Big Basin. We divided into two groups and designated two sites for cooking and gathering place. We went back and forth to all the campsites and spent time talking among adults while children were running around.

Every few years since I was five my grandparents would take my sister and me to a new place, whether to just visit with relatives or to see something new. A few years back, my sister and I went with them to Minnesota to visit some of my grandpa’s relatives. On the way there, we stopped in Chicago to visit his brother. While we were there, we visited the Natural History Museum and went to the Chicago Aquarium. When I was about eight my whole family went to Gatlinburg, Tennessee for the fourth of July.

The prison is a large open camp surrounded by a barbed wire fence. We were forced to march from the hospital to the railroad it took 6 days they forced us to march with no food or water 60 miles. If you fell behind, talked to guards, or tried to help someone they either beat you or killed you. I watched in horror as an officer refused to give up his wedding ring and he was forced to his knees and beheaded. Men simply fell over dead from exhaustion.
