Dear Mama is a song performed by Tupac Shakur, that takes a look at the relationship between Tupac and his mother, Afeni Shakur. The slow, pensive song was produced by Tony Pizarro, and released under Interscope Records in 1995. Dear Mama also includes samples of the songs Sadie by The Spinners and In My Wildest Dreams by Joe Sample. Tupac was born in New York City, but moved to Oakland, California as teenager. The influence of his moving to California can be seen in his music with songs like California Love, and To Live and Die in LA as well as his affiliation with Death Row Records.

In college, Jackie played football, basketball, track, and baseball. He also served in the US Army in 1939-1941. After severing the Army, he decided to play for the Kansas City Monarchs all black baseball team.
Our shared attributes like our commitment to learning, parental support, and worries and the future, allow me to further empathize with William and what he has gone through. When I first read his novel for the first time, I was unfazed by the hardship William had endured. I partially blame that on the society we live in; we have become desensitized to others struggles and strifes because that is all the media shows. However, by contemplating the similar struggles humans have, I am now able to truly sympathize with William and others who face adversities and conflict in this
The first chapter will introduce the backstory of many of O’Brien’s closest friends during the war, young soldiers like Kiowa, Lieutenant Cross, and Mitchell Sanders. These are some of the characters that O’Brien grows a strong friendship with and they contribute to the main theme of the book, friendship, in that they help him through tough times and they all learn to care about one another. The Things They Carried is a great read that I would recommend to anyone who likes a good war story. However, the book is not great for someone who likes a storyline that follows
Living in two very different areas allowed Mills to understand different types of people more thoroughly. He then spoke out and wrote books about this so that others could understand too. Having only lived in one place my entire life, I haven’t experienced or been around many different types of societies. I can use his work to have a more broad world view and understand why others may have different beliefs or practices. Another thing that his work can help me understand is the way that the sociological imagination works.
Also by mainly using this method he forced us to really analyze the characters to completely understand their role. Sometimes he used more than one method of characterization because the character trait was really important in the story he was telling, For example, O’Brien really emphasized how benevolent and sympathetic Kiowa was multiple times by using Kiowa’s quotes and the quotes from the other soldiers. I think he did this so the readers could see how Kiowa played a major role in counseling the group and helping most of the guys get through some difficult times. If a reader was trying to describe Kiowa they could possibly say he was an amiable soldier, a man with a stable spirit, and a greatly admired human
Not even his parents because he felt a sense of betrayal, his dad had another family with another woman that nobody knew about. During his journey he decided to change his name to Alex, he met many people. Not only did Alex befriend them, he also left a strong impression on each of them. These people include Westerberg, Jan Burres, and Ronald Franz. Throughout his adventures he also learned a lot of important life lessons.
This allows for orders to be quickly and effectively issued to the Marines. It also allows for accountability to be easily to conducted so that the commander will know if any of his Marines are missing, sick, or injured. This is also one of the most important reasons for the rank structure to have been created is that any time a commander can find out the condition of the Marines in their
The two self-test I chose to take were the Myers-Briggs Inventory and Strength Finder 2.0. My thoughts about both self-test were an interesting experience. In the Strength Finder 2.0, the author Gallup’s made interesting point when he talked about the “A Misguided Maxim?” “You can be anything you want to be, if you just try hard enough.” (5) The author calls this phase a myth but for me, I call these words of encouragement. For years this phase has inspired me to accomplished many goals in my life and help me in raising my children as a single parent. Also, I have used this phase to encourage many people who have felt like they could not achieve their goals in live.
James Thurber is positioned in one of the most prestigious American humorists. His short story "University Days" has portrayed lively everything about those days he spent at Ohio State University. Despite passing most of his classes, he still could not complete the degree by one subject. As it was, but Thurber was not embarrassed to laugh at himself and to give out his exasperation. I am fascinated by the way he narrated his own story, witty but delicate.
This is one major reason men are so compelled by the military as we learn about in reading Jarhead. A majority of Men, as well as women, will continue to go through the same internal issues that Swofford had to endure. There are families that have generations of members in the family that will serve in the military. I imagine because of the environment a child at home like Swofford went through. In the end, what Swofford did grow up thinking was a great plan for him, he left with a bit of disappointment, but he clearly learned a lot about himself to proceed to write this story.

However, the story is fiction, so the story 's may not be true, but how these men were affected by the war and is shown very well. Anyone would enjoy this book and the characters and their dialogue are priceless. The author Tim O`Brian shows what many of the vietnam vet`s experienced during and after the
In the beginning of the book, after he was transferred into the Salamander army, Ender could not train with everyone else, so he went back to the launchies and “proposed his bargain. Free play, everyday, working hard in the battle room, under Ender’s direction. They would learn things from the armies, from the battles Ender would see,” (85). When he practiced with the launchies, the launchies were transfigure into better soldiers than they were before. This made him a superior leader because it shows how he can command a group and how good he is at teaching.
Even though this makes little sense to a civilian, this is how most of the military operates. Acronyms are something that the U.S. Armed Forces love to use on a daily basis. SHARP is a well known acronym througout the military, but a regular person wont understands what it means. SHARP stands for Sexual Harassment/Assault Response & Prevention the Department Of Defense (DOD) made this a requirement to help prevent sexual assault in the military. In this training military jargon and culture is used to relate to troops so it can be more efficient.
