My Dearest Parents, When you last heard from me, it was about two months when I first boarded the ship. The voyage was normal at first, the only discomfort being the number of passengers traveling with me. The reason for the overcrowding was due to the passengers hoping they can experience a new life for not only themselves, but also their family and friends. This was my intention too. After a couple of weeks at sea, there was a massive storm that threw the ship off course.
My Trip to Haiti It was the beginning of my junior year in high school and there had been much talk about a school trip to Port Au Prince, Haiti, Only ten students could attend this trip, applications had opened up in November and for me a trip to Haiti sounded like just a dream, I thought I was not able to afford it. The idea for the possibility to travel to a new country and be exposed to a brand new culture excited me, I made the decision to apply anyway. In December, I received news that I had been chosen as one of the first ten students from my school to go on this new service trip. I was so excited that I was even qualified, but also worried because I knew that the price was still an issue.
The trip to Florida. Orlando to be exact. We had been planning this trip for a while. My whole family hopped in the new car we bought about a month ago. It was already beginning to look like the car we had before. Candy wrappers were in the floor, old water bottles still in the cupholders, and jackets, basketballs, and bags piled in the back. It didn’t matter though because we were about to have the time of our lives.
Indeed, The upper Western class' gentle treatment of Columbus abuses speaks to the power of propaganda and how its invocation alone can warp the past and control the future. In the Bahamas islands where Christopher Columbus landed, he and his Spanish compatriots committed grievous wrongs. According to Howard Zinn (pg 90), Columbus' first main interest upon meeting the Native Americans was gold. Hence Columbus ordered that the Native Americans in the Bahamas retrieve a certain quota of gold for his cache. If and when some of the Native Americans did not meet Columbus gold quota, he had them dismembered. Those Native Americans who fled or retaliated were hunted down, starved, became diseased or were killed. Columbus' and his men additionally
As of last year, I became Co-President of the Stand Up Against Cancer Club. The officer positions were passed down to myself and two other friends our sophomore year by senior of the class of 2015. Though our club had a very slow start last year, we are excited to recruit new members and hopefully conduct more service projects. We hope to get the school more involved with our club and want to make a difference even if its only in small measures. Last year, we made christmas cards to send to Brenner’s children’s hospital.

The people on land are just as alone as the crew. Family members at home go through extreme stress and suffer from severe anxiety because they don't know what is happening to the people out at sea. Junger also tells the story of the crew of the Satori, a 32 foot sailboat that got stuck in the storm. He uses interviews from the crew to tell the story and how they
Europe’s insatiable capitalist quest led to its conquest of many parts of the world, including the Caribbean island and mainland states. The process started with the ‘discovery’ of the West Indies in the late 15th Century by Christopher Columbus, and continued through the Triangular or Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade. The need for land for the extension of Europe’s value-added assets resulted in colonisation of the West Indies, while the need for labour to till the soil led to slavery. Colonisation and slavery, therefore, are agents of capitalism. Imperialism is considered the plateau or highest point of capitalism, for imperialism is the conquest of lands and peoples for the imperialist regime’s extension of power and influence.
I was extremely happy to celebrate with my dad and sister. However, it was a humbling experience to know how different the world is, and at the same time, how similar our lives are. Traveling can be critical but, what makes it interesting is the adventure, food and companionship, and new things.
This trip specifically focuses on youth education and Native American issues. Essentially, my team members are helping out in the classrooms (TAing in a way) and also trying to be a role model for the students by pushing the importance of education and college. A lot of these kids only know this community and many of the elders and their parents do not have a college education, so they do not understand the importance of education. It is hard to see if we are making an impact in such a short amount of time, and I know my 15 other team members are incredibly sad to be leaving the schools. As soon as the kids saw us Monday morning, they were all over us in excitement!
Through the sarcasm, Campbell is able to achieve his goal because the readers see the issue, of Americans infiltrating The Bahamas, more clearly while allowing them to take a more serious approach to intervene. In similar fashion, Meichos-Glinton also inserts sarcasm into her work like when she says, “Who came up with football- the satisfying variety where a whole bunch of men...pile up on the little guy…and leave the runner brain damaged….” This is a very sarcastic statement. Even though Glinton-Meicholas knows that football is intended to entertain and improve athleticism, she still chooses to highlight the negative aspects like resulting injuries because it is originally an American sport. By using sarcasm, Glinton-Meicholas accomplishes
