Although he didn’t finish middle school, Papa put a huge emphasis on education on his children. It paid off. Aunt Von became a doctor and owned a practice while dad became a successful engineer. Papa’s lack of institutional education influenced my parents to make education my sole priority which I soon appreciated their diligence. I’ve been blessed to be able to retain information well except for math.

The Republican party began as a spontaneous grass roots protest against Kansas-Nebraska Act of 1854, which allowed slavery into western territories where it had been forbidden by earlier compromises. The creation of the new party, along with the death of the Whig Party, realigned American politics. The central issues were new, as were voter alignments, and the balance of power in Congress.

Illiteracy is a prevalent issue in American society. While the ability to have the opportunity to read and write well seems normal it is not for many Americans. I will never forget when my grandmother first wrote her name at 60 years old. I remember teaching her the alphabet, and showing her the letters that formed BINGO. Her written letters were sloppy like those of an average preschooler, but with months of practice they became defined.

These children never had the time to think of anything but work, so even if they had some other talent they would not even know. The workers were stripped of their personality as quickly as meat was
For years she has been treated by the same pediatrician who also took care of half of the kids in her small rural town. Sure he was a bit older but wise and experienced so Jill and her parents felt they could trust him. Well, I’ve run some lab work and can’t seem to find a reason for Jill to pass out on Saturday while playing. Maybe she was dehydrated. You know the excitement of the tournament and that hot heat on the beach couldn’t have helped matters any.
In 1819, John Quincy Adams asserted that the United States had prerogative to all of North America. He thought it was America’s destiny to expand to the Pacific Ocean.

He didn’t care if the cowboys thought he was too young. He would work hard, and stay out of the way. He was done with that little town, its sad people, and all the sorrow that had plagued his life. He relished the idea of being free. He could do nothing about the aching pain of how his dad died…in a self imposed sleep from too much of the sleeping salts, and a fallen candle that set off the fire.
