This is still the same as before the Civil War because African Americans are still not accepted even after they got freedom. Discrimination against blacks continues to be a problem for decades to come, and even today. (American Anti-Slavery and Civil Rights
I’ve been anticipating the season to start for about the last 5+ months. These past couple of months have been so boring cause I have been doing nothing but going to school. No sports for that long is awful so every time baseball comes around I 'm so ecstatic. So you know I have been counting down the days until the season. This year I was drafted to the diamondbacks, every year this league
I had to change my way of writing and the way I use to learn in Haiti. Had to take ESL classes to improve my vocabularies and be able to understand when I’m being spoken to.

In 1976 it was illegal to perform an abortion in New Orleans, Louisiana so my parents, who were unsuccessful having their own children, moved to Louisiana in hopes they would have a better change to adopt a baby.

The day I quit drinking and turned my life over to the care of God is one of the most memorable days of my life. From the time I was 5 or 6 years old I can remember always feeling different. I was never certain if it were the fact I came from a broken home or maybe it was because we lived in poverty. Either way the feeling of being different was apparent.

It is so true Nolma that everything is a luxury and privilege in Haiti. I too grew up in Haiti and lived there for 20 years until I moved here in United States.
