By addressing the issues that many people are faced with on the day to day basis can promote change. We as citizens need to come together to make America a safe, equal, and peaceful place to live. Colin Kaepernick protest is the voice for many people in different communities. The protest isn’t about disrespecting the flag or veterans who have fought for us. Colin is exercising his first amendment which is freedom of speech.We should all want equality for each other.
Being a person who has the ability to know right from wrong in today's society is very hard since nowadays, everyone does what is known to be as “cool”. The way I was and still am raised, has helped me immensely in this world to stay back from negative things like drugs and bad influences, and lean towards a group of friends that constantly stay on the right path. As a teenager, I am one who does not lie and always stays true to myself. As a result, my parents place a large amount of trust in me which gives
Words I strive to live by everyday. Words that demonstrate a qualifier for National Honors Society. I have shown and demonstrated these words several times in a positive manner at events that either help the community or people benefit from it. Today in society it is hard to find the good in the world, however I believe I have good intentions to help people in every way I can possible. Being inducted into National Honors Society is more than just a certificate.
Some have said my actions have inspired the people down the road to fight for the freedom, but me I’m just a dreamer who has one simple belief that every man should be able to profess their faith without fear of persecution. That was my goal and it is an honor to see my foundation has stood strong throughout the years I only hope it will continue to flourish as it
In Josh’s memoir, he explains the downside of the whole process, but in the end he would not change a single thing. He is now a nationally recognized speaker and continues to talk and present to groups all over the United States. Since he is a motivational speaker, he incorporates a lot of positive messages throughout his books, which is an aspect that makes his books
America has become a better nation with time, protests and the power of a counter culture always existing to fight for equality, no matter the gender and race. Overall, I support the NFL players they are focusing on the bigger issue that is in America. Everyone knows it, but does anyone else do something no. Many people are scared to use their voice because of the repercussions that occur. Our society needs to keep changing to satisfy all ethnicities and gender in our community.
In the United States there are many rights. Freedom of Speech is one of the most important rights. People are allowed to give their opinions about the government, they are able too without getting in any trouble with the law. This right is very important because it allows people to express their opinions. Freedom of religion is another very important right.
This connotation of courage as being of, or relating to memorable heros, or achivers, is not wrong; when Bill Gates began, it took courage on his part to undergo such an overwhelming undertaking, but he succeeded. Again this took courage, but took large scale courage; but what about living everyday with courage? A thought not many come across while living their life everyday. It is an intriguing question and leads to a moral that I personally live by everyday in my life. It is a moral, a belief, that I hold true everyday and live by; it’s the belief to live everyday with courage.
Citizens are thankful for law enforcement due to their hard work and also putting their life on the line every day to protect their citizens. In The Annals of the American Academy of Political and Social Science, Raymond Clift explains the benefits of police training by stating, “Onthejob training is the secret of really good police development” (Clift 117). Training is an important part of the law enforcement because even though some police handle situations differently, that makes the force special. Citizens thank officers for handling situations the way they do because, without their training, no one will be there in the time help is in need. To support
Again as expected, Chris was trying to emotionally cut me in half but I wasn’t up for it. Finally, about a week later, Chris apologized and had realized what he did was emotionally and physically hurtful to me. Kids will always say and do what their parents say and do to them and this is why now, I don’t act impulsively. I also learned not take the phrase “turn the other cheek” that is told so often so literally. Well, I guess in my case it wouldn’t turn the other lip.
Felon Rights: Many people take voting for granted; many will argue that voting is a privilege not a right, as this is true among many counties. Here in the United States everyone at the age of eighteen gains their right to vote. Right now roughly 4 Million Americans will not be allowed to Vote in the United States. These people are felons that have served their debt to society. If someone is a U.S. Citizen, working, paying taxes, and coexisting in a community they have the right to vote.
Emily Riva:Hey JJ, You’ve always told us that if we need any help with anything, especially our faith, we could come to you. Well, I’m struggling. I know I’ll never know why God does some of the things he does, but is it okay to be really mad at him? I had a million feelings and thoughts running through my head, all at once. I stared at my phone screen, on Facebook, waiting for her to respond.
Army, I will use my past experiences and skills to successfully work with any leader, peer, or subordinate regardless of gender, color, ethnicity, or religion. I will be success at working with anyone at West Point because I have been doing it my entire life. No matter how different a person is from myself, I envision myself simply operating with them for who they are as a person rather that what they look like or what beliefs they hold. Every person I have encountered has been different in his or her race, beliefs, ethnicity, gender, or religion. This has never stopped me, however, from working successfully with them.
“We know more than we did two weeks ago, but there are still entire government agencies whose names and missions are unknown, and programs so secret that Congress votes to fund them without knowing what they do.” (O’Hehir) With Congress being kept in the dark, the government programs can do whatever they feel is necessary in the name of the Constitution without burdening more people of what they do. Since Congress is not burdened by whatever possibly horrific deeds the government programs are committing, they can focus on more important things
It gives a complete list of all the things that we can do, and the rights that we have. Human rights are an important part of how people interact with others at all levels in society - in the family, the community, schools, the workplace & politics. Although we may not recognize them, the rights admitted in the Constitution are the main reason we can be individuals and believe in what best suits our ambitions and well-being. They are designed to ensure that each person can to live with dignity; free from fear, persecution and violence; productively; and harmoniously alongside others. This is why they are so important to us as a community and as
