Webster's dictionary defines award as “To confer or bestow as being deserved or merited or needed.” Allowing people to recognize others who are worthy is one of the main reasons for giving out awards. In school and at home, I work hard and remain persistent in everything I do. Furthermore, I am efficient at managing my time and I always finish my work to the best of my ability. Some things I enjoy doing are taking my dogs for walks, finishing projects that I know I have done my best on, and working with others. During my free time, I enjoy volunteering at park cleanups and food banks. But, I most enjoy hanging out and playing around with my friends. Possessing all the necessary qualities, plus other exceptional attributes, compels me to believe that I am worthy of this award.
The 1936 Berlin Olympic Games stand out as a critical affair in history around the world. Specifically to the United States, there was much contention over the participation of the USA team during the Games due to Germany’s aggressive behavior towards Jewish people. Two men were vital in leading the debate on both sides: Jeremiah Mahoney and Avery Brundage. This investigation focuses on one crucial question: why did the debates on the 1936 Olympic boycott in the United States ultimately lead to American participation in the Games?
From the moment I was born I was considered a military brat, I was born in Hawaii at tripler hospital because my mom was in the army and stationed there, my biological father was in the marines. When my mom remarried when I was 7, she married a man who was in the Navy. Everyone thinks being a Military brat just means you know more than other people because you 've been more places and seen more things and you get a lot of stuff you want. This is not true at all. Coming from a military background means you never have stability, you are held to a higher standard than all the other kids, and sometimes it makes you want to be in the military and only focus on that.
Veterans Day is an official holiday we celebrate on November 11th, we celebrate all those living and dead who served in the US armed forces. The formal name of Veterans day was Armistice day and was changed to Veteran’s day by President Eisenhower in 1954. The first Veterans day celebrated was on November 11th 1919, a year after World War I ended. Veterans day started when there was an agreement signed in 1918 on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month to end World War I.
History can be said to be the study of past events. According to Merriam Webster Dictionary, history is a chronological record of significant events often including an explanation of their causes.
I believe that the author Eric foner would respond to the stated questions that history isn 't the past but the present and how we interact with objects as well as each other. " 'History ' writes James Baldwin, an unusually astute observer of twentieth century American life 'does not refer merely, or even principally, to the past, on the contrary, the great force of history comes from the fact that we carry it within, are unconsciously controlled by it in many ways, and history is literally present in all we do '". What the author means by this is that everything we do and what others have done and will do, shapes history, that the actions we do affect others and so-on. In physics there 's a theory called the butterfly effect that states that the butterfly effect "is the sensitive dependence on initial conditions in which a small change in one state of a deterministic nonlinear system can result in large differences in a later state." This relates to this because people make small change in their environment all the time, so unconsciously their affecting the people around them,
The 9/11 Memorial Museum sits on 180 Greenwich Street in New York City directly where the twin towers used to sit. It was made commemorate the tragic event that happened on September 11, 2001. This is the first year that this event will be taught in history classes in high schools across the nation since this year’s high school freshman class was not born in 2001. I was about four years old when 9/11 happened and although I don’t remember when it happened it has impacted my life. It has helped me to understand the concept of History besides what is taught in our textbooks.
We all wait nervously, a room filled with six-hundred third graders but no one whispers more than a few words. Today we find out that twenty of us that will leave our families behind for the next two decades. Every year the government chooses twenty seven year old children from each school in the Providence of Britain and transports them to the United Europe Combat Forces (UECF) military school who will then become soldiers after their training. A strange woman walks up the mic, its the same women who dose the announcement every year. Our class has always joked and called her Drakula, due to her tall and skinny build, pale skin and big nose. Dracula flicks the mic, a high pitched noise gets everyone to attention. she starts to talk but I can't focus something about honoring our veterans
This letter is in a business format to bring attention to the miraculous support and guidance provided by James R. Ruffner MS, CRC. Upon leaving the United States Armed Forces after 20 years, the competing and properly understanding the United States work force was disheartening and overwhelming. In the service you are trained to persevere; however, once that chapter of your life is complete, an insurmountable loneliness and ignorance dominates your daily actions. In what I consider an extreme low point in my life, Mr. Ruffner said, “Your in my program now, things won’t be perfect but, you will be alright”. “It’s my job to make sure you and your family will be ok”. That was the first time I have ever heard that outside of serving our country.
How have things been lately? I’m sure things are a little different without me but I hope you’re doing well. I’m pleased to say that I’m going all right up until now, and I hope to stay healthy till the end of the war. What we were told about war was very untruthful. There is no glamor to war, and thanks to the war our entire generation will be wiped out very soon. The life at the front is terrible. It’s been a month since I have been here but it didn’t take much to realize the difference between our training they gave us and the actual war we had to fight. Within the first week I could tell that the training we received wasn’t anywhere close to enough. The training center never prepared us for the continuous bombing, the continuous rattles of the ground, and definitely not the continuous fear we experience every moment and every second we’re here. The fear that the next explosion would drop right next to you,and you would be dead within seconds. No one trained us to be mentally ready for this trauma. No one ever told us that we would experience the limitless deaths of your pals or friends that would drop dead right in front of your eyes.We were never taught the truth.

It was a dark and stormy night. Why we have to do this tonight, that is beyond me. Ask our squad deputy commander Joongsa Kim, equivalent to a Warrant Officer of my homeland, about the reason. I had my reason: It was stormy tonight, and to me, that was enough to feel like stepping out of the mission. As a member of the Joint Task Force 2, I was trained to withstand the dark, and so would have my American comrade Sergeant Hunter, who is from the well-known Delta Force, and the South Korean soldiers Warrant Officer Kim and Sangbyeong Jung, equivalent to a Corporal of the Canadian Armed Forces, who are from the 707th Special Operations Battalion. The one thing we all have in common is that storms are uncommon in our home countries. At least where we come from and where we were trained, they are. So obviously, none of us were good in
