A prominent thematic throughout the novel, Warriors Don’t Cry by Melba Patillo Beals is self-reliance. In many instances throughout the novel, Melba must be brave and is sometimes not able to rely on anyone else but herself. There are many figures in the novel that help her overcome obstacles but in many cases, she is forced to fight the battle on her own. One could imply that the tone of the novel is fearful because she is terrified in multiple occasions and is forced to overcome these challenges.
With the herbaceous smell of freshly cut grass and the salty taste of sunflower seeds, a baseball field strikes me as a place where I feel perfectly content. The wonderful home of the sport I have loved as long as I can remember brings a sense of calmness. Baseball fields remind me of great memories, give me a strong sense of confidence, and cause me to strive for a greater future.
Throughout America's history, the design of our currency has been changed quite a few times for reasons such as, avoiding counterfeit threats or to instill and show our American pride. In 2020, the U.S. will be changing the face of the $10 bill to a woman's face. The year 2020 is significant because it is the 100th year anniversary of when women gained the right to vote. You could say there are many women that deserve this honor, but I believe that Lucy Stone should be the one featured on the bill because of her many contributions to the evolution of American democracy.
Whenever my mom has company at her house, guests always ask about the plaque that hangs in the living room on the wall. It reads Championship Mvp, 14-0 season, Jonesboro Wildcats. My mom always smiles and says, “Ask Markus about it.” I don’t mind telling people about the championship game. It is after all one of my fondest memories playing sports.
My wife Clementine decided we need these journals to document what we see on our travels to Oregon next month, however I honestly think they are a waste of time. At least little Brooke enjoys it. On her 6th birthday last year we got her a notebook that she 's been writing in so I think she 's ready for these journals. I remember three years ago when Clementine was 18 we would go on walks around our little town of bloomesdale. I shore do miss those times, but we haven 't gone on many walks since then, because she 's been cross with me about overruling her vote to go to Oregon.
On a sunny December morning at approximately 9:35 am, a little girl’s heart came to an abrupt stop. Eleven-year-old Lisbeth Collado was undergoing her second heart transplant in less than eight years, when the loud beeping noise from the electrocardiograph machine went silent. For the next four minutes, her small, lifeless body laid on the cold, padded operating bed, as doctors desperately attempted to bring her back to life.
When I partially tore my ACL I had to show grit not to give up playing football. It was during warmups for a football game in 7th grade. The offense was all lined up with me as an outside receivor with Derrick on the inside. When Nick hiked the ball I raced to the cornerback ,who happened to be Ethan Goodwin, and started blocking him. Then the whistle blew so I looked over at Nick to see what happened and realized that that he had just thrown the ball. It was a bullet for Derrick who was sprinting directly at me. The ball was just a little too far so Derrick jumped. Right at me! I didn’t move so he slammed into my knee and that was the end of my 7th grade career. Looking back I realize that it took a lot of grit not to just give up playing

Black people have never been treated fairly by white people. Slavery was when they were at their worst. The punishments for doing something wrong or escaping were severe. You have your legs cut off, you could be burned, you could get hanged, and the list goes on. They were forced to do whatever job their master made them do. The slaves could work in the field or in the house. Many of them didn't have an education and couldn't read or write. Thankfully, slavery was abolished in the year 1865. Though it may seem they were free, they weren't. They had more rights such as voting, but they had a long way to go.
What she talks exactly happens in our daily life. And indeed, most of people are not color brave enough. Her talk becomes even more vivid. The more people are color brave, the more they maybe could be a little bit less concerned and more determined in the conversations about the race issue.
Mr. Robinson, you need to know that even though you have done a terrible act, God will forgive you. If you tell God and court the truth, then God will help you through this hard time. You see Romans 3:23 says that everyone sins and falls short of the glory of God, so according to this verse you are not the only one that sins. Dear God, I hope that you will comfort Rob in this time and that your will be done in this matter. Mr. Robinson would you like to accept Christ? You see when one accepts Christ is old life is washed away and a new life has begun, this could be your new beginning!
