Emma is one of those girls who is very popular at school and cares about her friends and family, but doesn’t care about much else. She is a really nice sister, but she can get to be a pain sometimes. Emma is actually a decent student though, no matter what people think about the “popular group” of kids at school, Emma is part of them and still a good student. She normally gets Bs and B+s for grades, and listens and learns when necessary. Did I mention that she can be a pain?
Instead of simply observing and playing with household objects as they did during the first year, children start babbling into the phone and brushing their hair.

Throughout my life I have been told, find something that you enjoy and find something that will benefit you as well as others. I really have not taken this statement to my heart until I got the opportunity to sit down with Candy Vander Wal, athletic trainer at Shiloh Christian School. The whirlwind of all the games that take place at the school, I had never realized what role Candy played a part of and all the hard work she does to help student athletes. Once we started to talk, I began to realize that, although I am only a senior in high school, I could see myself enjoying being an athletic trainer someday or just entering the sports medicine line of work. During our conversation, Candy taught me that finding something you enjoy can benefit not only you but others too.
They are affected by the glass ceiling because they grow up listening and learning about its existence. They also learn that there is a great possibility that they will amount to less that they dreamed they would. Furthermore, this emphasizes the point of the glass ceiling to younger women and girls who will learn about these actions in school for many years to come. They will be further empowered to be the change they wish to see in the world and come to the realization that nothing can stop women from doing what they want to do. Once these younger women are old enough to understand the drastic gap between men and women in the job industry, hopefully, they will want to fix this and do what they can in order to close this gap by breaking the

Children and adolescents are faced with developmental tasks at many points as they grow up, but there are a few stages in life when young people meet multiple challenges all at once. The transition from high school to college is one of those critical developmental periods. It is an exciting time that typically leads to considerable gains in maturity, but it is also a time during which many adolescents experience difficulties. This transition is an important event for families as well, because the family unit must navigate significant changes in relationships between family members. Again, although most families manage the transition well, it is quite common that they experience difficulties along the way.

The loss of innocence is demonstrated time and time again throughout the course of The Things They Carried. This concept weighs heavily upon the author, as he re-visits it in nearly every single passage in the novel. It is a theme that goes hand in hand with not only war-time combat experience, but from any military service. Particularly during times of war, however, it becomes increasingly prevalent, as innocence is not only lost but often replaced entirely by the burden of realities faced during combat. Whether it is through witnessing warfare, suffering directly from it, or even having one’s life cut short by it, the loss of innocence is one of the biggest overall impacts felt by every soldier.
