He taught us to love those around us and don't take anyone for granted. Atticus made me the man I am today he taught me most everything I know. I miss all the wonderful time we had together and i would do anything to spend a day with him again. Atticus always gave everyone a chance. He believed that everyone had at least a little nice in them, but some may just have to be looked at more to see it.
The members have to take the sad news and use it as inspiration, they dedicated their performance to Joe and his family. The documentary Young @ Heart definitely touched my heart. The majority of chorus members have more energy than me. They are beyond dedicate and bless to be members of the Young @ Heart chorus. Even in their worse physical health many members were still practicing and thinking about their “Alive and Well” performance.
Not to long ago a man kneeled during the National Anthem, then many followed in his footsteps. Not showing any respect for the ones who served makes me upset considering my uncles served for my country and put there lives on the line day after day for my freedom and there freedom. I firmly believe that all the men and women who have served for my country should be respected for their sacrifices and duties. So my patriotic responsibility to america is to always uphold respect and keep pride in my country. Along with always respecting the ones who have served for my country and gave me the many freedoms I have today.
As Enrique’s Journey shed light upon how lucky I am, I also wonder where Enrique is today after his deportation, but I know, with faith and love, Enrique will always be bound to his family. After riding the trains with Enrique, I felt genuine pain for him as he faced the shadows of strain and suffering and rode the rails toward a hopefully brighter future where he can celebrate the beauty of each day and absorb life’s subtle glories after quenching a long thirst

We would take four buses all the way tour parents house. This was the night we would go to our parents house on December 24 we did this so then if we could meet our parents on Christmas or right before Christmas. We went in the train station with very little money just enough for our tickets and very little food. We reached the last bus my stomach was hurting it was a hour bus ride I was nervous because what if my real parents were mean and didn 't want us. We got off the last bus and it was 6:00pm we had to walk a 20 minute walk.
“Ben are you excited” I asked Ben Ben said “ Yeah, I’m pretty excited it’s been a couple of years since i 've gone.” I told him he didn’t sound very excited. I got to church and talked to Mark for a bit and Grant one our friends showed up. Mark said he needed help getting the back two seats out of the van so we could put luggage back in the vans. After waiting for ten minutes we packed the vans and left. The ride there was two hours long and was so much fun.
In the voices of sorrow, people questioned, “What if.” “What if my son or daughter were still here?” I questioned myself: ‘What if that were me?’ With a heavy heart, I reflected my own life and empathized with the speakers and the families. Re-evaluating what really was important in life, I saw that the valuable bonds between family and friends - love, care, and support were priceless beyond any material wealth. The silent reflection became a turning point in my philosophy toward life and the amazing virtual bonds formed with the congregation forever changed my life. After a silent meditation, it was my turn. I approached the stage to play Saint-Saens’ “The Swan” - a song of life, loss and hope.
I, however, was anxious, excited, and terrified that my dreams wouldn’t be lived up to. Leaving Kansas for California required me to put all of my eggs in one basket. I don’t if you have ever done that, but when you uproot your entire life to follow a dream inspired by a small thread of hope, it seems pretty reckless. Of course, I didn’t feel reckless as we were driving through Oklahoma and Texas, I just felt like I was finally going to be okay. The pain of my disease was slowly lightening in parallel to how many miles we put between the car and the prairie I spent my years playing

When I first heard the song, I was going through some really tough times with my family, and it really reminded me that no matter what, I would always have God with me even if I had no one else. I realized that God is the ultimate brother in life, and he will always be there no matter if you need him desperately or not. I also can to the realization that I shouldn’t feel sorry for myself because there are many people who are going through much tougher times than me, and had no one to lean on. I now understand that I am blessed with a strong support system of family and friends, and they pushed me rely more on my faith as well.
