Polk’s belief in Manifest Destiny contributed to actions he took as president that resulted in the United States gaining territory in the West. These actions included annexing territory, fighting a war, and signing treaties.

They opened over 14 homes, saving over 1,200 children. “This life-saving work was done with help from non-Jewish persons and institutions”(Gossels and Wetherell 1). This work alone exemplifies the amount of moral courage done by the OSE on a daily basis.

While many consider the 50-mile backpacking trek at the Boy Scout High Adventure Philmont Ranch 10,000 feet above sea level an already excruciating journey, my experience with the trek revealed the perfect metaphor: Life is just one big blister. Before this trip, I dedicated my life towards improving the mind rather than the body, embracing my talents in mathematics and science and envisioning myself as a teacher of academia rather than an athlete. With this background and as the youngest person in the expedition, my crewmembers often expressed their concerns: “Did you lace your boots properly? Do you have enough food? Are you warm enough?” Unfortunately, despite numerous preparatory hikes, their worries held true as I developed a blister on my left foot within the first day.
