After leaving Rock Creek, we had to follow the Platte River and travel the rest of the way to Fort Kearney. I felt a cold gust of wind coming from the North and little droplets of water slowly fell down. The wagon had no damage until the rain fell harder and harder. Our only wagon cover was soaking wet and water was dripping down into the wagon ruining all of our belongings. A very strong wind blew towards our direction and slightly tilted all of our wagons. The rain fell harder and harder. I heard the sound of rocks hitting glass and instantly knew that it was hail. The oxen were getting hit so we covered them with large saddles. The storm slowly started to calm. There were cracks in the wagon from the wood getting too wet but Marvin
As rain seeped from the heavens, the dreary charcoal buildings began to resemble grotesque tombstones. The rain swirled across the concrete road, past the abandoned basketball court haunted by the echoes of childhood and under the park benches where lovers had once met to profess their passion. The rain-soaked wind pushed the corroded swings, their eerie creaking harmonizing with the wind’s soft moans. In its wake, the rain left shallow ebony puddles doomed to virginity, forever untouched by the rubber soles of childrens’ rain boots. Raindrops tapped against dark window-panes, filling the street with a melancholy melody. Nobody peered from beneath a curtain or dared to don an umbrella and venture into the street. An eternal slumber seemed to consume the neighborhood as rain continued to batter the earth. Rain overran the town and thunder resonated through the paper-thin houses, but the town

Dr.Cline began to become terrified of what the storm was becoming capable of and began warning Galveston residence. But it was too late, very few got out of the city in time. The wind blew the water out of Galveston bay and into the city itself. In effect, the storm 's trajectory made galveston the victim of two storm surges , the first in the bay, and the second from the Gulf. Many men and women began furiously chopping holes in their parlor floors to hopefully admit water and to anchor their homes in place. The winds remain at a sustained 150 miles per hour and had gust up to two hundred miles per hour. “The sea followed. Galveston became Atlantis.” Waves swept through neighborhoods taking houses and families with them. One resident describes
We were having a really good time, splashing around in the water and throwing mud, when we heard thunder. We didn’t think much of it, but looking back, we definitely should have. We looked up and saw gray clouds, but we just kept hiking. We didn't think that it would be a big deal and it would just pass over. We started to feel rain drops, but just a few. “Dad, I think that we should start going down now,” I reminded him. “We’ll be fine,” he answered. He had told me earlier that if it started to rain, we should go down. Melissa thought the same thing, but after that we just kept quiet.

"It's a beautiful day for baseball!" I shouted in the parking lot of the 5/3 Ballpark. My family and I were walking down the gigantic parking lot, with red square tiles, to get to the ballgame. We had a little under an hour and were truly in no rush. We could see the gates that led to the ballpark and I was extremely excited for the upcoming baseball game. I didn't really care how the game went, as long as the Cougars did well. I had brought a baseball mitt to catch a baseball, for I had caught baseballs in previous games and I was hoping that history would repeat itself. Going to this game was my sister, Veronica, my brother, Nicholas, my Mom, and my Dad. After heading through the gates and getting our tickets scanned, we headed into

As I was awakened from a deep sleep, my aunt was yelling “get all your stuff we have to leave.” I didn’t fully understand what was going on by the way I was awakened. It was five o’clock in the morning when I heard my cousin on the other end of the phone saying “we have to leave New Orleans now, the hurricane is going to hit and we will not be safe here.” I never thought I would have to pack up and leave my home because of a natural disaster. As I gather the things that would fit in the small purple suitcase I was still in disbelief of what was going to take place. One by one we loaded up her red Pontiac and headed for the Texas border with my cousin following in the car behind us.
Over the course of this winter quarter, I have learned in my class of Psychology of Wellness how to incorporate mindfulness into my daily life. The definition of mindfulness is considered an art. In the book of the Fully Present, the authors Susan Smalley and Diana Winston transmitted their wisdom on how to learn, practice and cultivate this art. According to the mentioned authors, they defined mindfulness as “the art of observing your physical, emotional, and mental experiences with deliberate, open, and curious attention” (2010, p.78).
