A safer alternative is to take in one of the professional displays taking place in and around Huntsville on the Fourth. The US Space and Rocket Center is holding its annual Fourth of July celebration this year. There will be family-friendly events starting at 9 AM and going to 5 PM. Then, at 9 PM, the fireworks will start. It is slated to be the biggest fireworks display ever shown in the area.
Disney Cruise 3 months ago I can’t believe we won the lottery and won 1 million dollars. My parents told us that we were going to go on a trip but we don’t think that we are actually going to go on a trip anywhere. It was still super exciting to win the lottery and all of that money. At dinner we our parents tell us we are going on a trip. We ask where but they say it is going to be a surprise.
All at once and much, much too completely. It was like you suddenly turned a blinding light on something that had always been half in shadow, that's how it struck the world for me” (102). This is where she provides the audience the understanding of the light bulb motif behind the story, the fact that she never feels love the same way she did with that young man she met when she was sixteen years old. When she continues to tell her story, some locomotive passes through and when the light shines on her, she ducks her body over so that it will not shine on her. Therefore, Blanche’s innocence was with that boy, young and naive, and when it ended she can no longer claim her innocence
Many people have asked them self if The American dream still alive? As many ask them self this question many do say it’s still alive but many say it’s not.

“The American Dream” has been referenced as a common ethos for any and all American citizens. However, it has become a widespread connotation that either the same path can be taken or the same goal is present for most people. This is not entirely true; “The American Dream” doesn’t exist; rather “American Dreams.” Literature is a great platform to express and display strong, compelling, and direct messages. Both The Great Gatsby and My Ántonia demonstrate a theme
I remember when I was on the rooftop with my dad and my older cousin, as we seen little fires growing from different spots, but luckily my dad and my cousin put a stop to it. All in all, comparing Sam’s culture shock experience to my culture shock experience, we were both surprised by how the locals live. Sam was shocked that the telephone could speak Arabic and I was shocked that young children could buy liquor. Having the experience of going through a feeling of culture shock can be good for most people, since they can be experiencing the best things that life has to offer, similar to Sam’s experience of coming to America. Sam’s experience had helped him to become
My Woodstock journey started about three days before the festival was set to begin. A couple of my friends, myself included, heard a promotion for Woodstock on the radio and one day later we decided to pack our bags and hit the road. It was roughly a two hour drive from New York City, where I was living at the time. There we started a week we would never forget. The drive to Bethel wasn’t too bad, it was full of laughs and lots of hash.
There is usually some sort of sports event going on in America and we always have access to the latest updates and scores. It is what we talk about to our family, friends, and our coworkers in the break room. It is something that brings us together and bonds us as a society. Because of this, we idolize the players of the sports. We expect sports stars to focus on their craft and always behave morally.
Day 1: The Blake forest is une of the most beautiful things I've seen. My friends and I were camping for the winter break before entering college, we thought we were going to have fun but that was our mistake. It was night when the real hell began, we were all sitting around the campfire telling the typical horror stories that our parents told us when we hear a branch break. "Who's there?" I ask but nobody answered, suddenly saw a woman 25 years I started walking towards us, "Who are you?"
We had to go to a special place that everyone went so they could perfectly see the fireworks shooting over the castle. When it finally got dark the fireworks started, and we watched them shoot bright and boldly over the castle lighting up the entire sky like the 4th of July. The fireworks boomed so loudly it was like someone hitting a drum right by your ear. The big booming fireworks lit up your eyes so bright with many fetching lights. After we watched the fireworks it was late, so it was time to go back to the villa so we could do more fun stuff the next day.
Then, one of my friends decides to kick it and that’s how it all started. We were pretty much playing soccer with a tennis ball on fire. Not thinking whatsoever, the ball was being kicked into people’s yards and just getting out of hand. So eventually the fire went out and we wanted to relight the ball and do it again. The fire from the spilled gasoline that didn’t get on the ball was still there.
In early September my family and I took a trip up to State College, Pennsylvania for the Rutgers Penn State game. Even though it was not the outcome I wanted for my Scarlet Knights, we still had a great time. Just being there for only a couple minutes, I quickly learned that when you travel for an away game with your desired sports team, you are going to feel like the minority. Kickoff was at eight o’clock in the evening, so that meant my day started at eleven in the morning in “Happy Valley.” Driving into the college town, College Avenue was filled with vocal fans and vibrant colors of blue and white. From cheerleaders handing out stickers labeled “Unrivaled” to extremely loud “We Are” chants filling the town, State College was turning into New York City by the second.
These things are what being American means to me. Patriotism is defined as fervent love of one’s country and allegiance to its government and institutions. Many Americans have this in common we all no matter race, color, or language have a passion for our country. Most of the people living here are immigrants and chose to come to America. As our founding fathers debated over how the government should be run, because they feared
What does it mean to be an American? To be an American can mean many different things, it could mean that you have American parents and that you were born in America. You could have American parents and be born in a different country and still be considered American. To me it means that you live in America, you could be from places like Turkey, Spain, Germany, Puerto Rico or anywhere and live in America and be considered an American. All Americans are immigrants, this is stated in The Immigrant Contribution by John F. Kennedy.
