Today this community gathers in honor of a dear, young girl taken from her family far too early, under deplorable, heartbreaking circumstances. Everyone knew Connie as a strikingly beautiful, lighthearted, decisive girl. It is rare that a teen can have such capability for strong decision making so early. That is not to say that Connie always made the right decisions, as no teenager ever does, but her willingness to make decisions at all is remarkable. My own surplus of indecision led to several regrettable life moments, and so I hope that Connie had no regrets in her young life, which was cut short far too soon.
80 jewish boys. From 1942 to 1944 a boarding school in the province of Luxembourg became home to 83 jewish boys between the ages of three and 16, some of who were rescued by and brought to the school by Joseph Andre, Ida Sterno and her companion Andre Geulen The home was run by a retired army officer and his wife named major Emile Taquet and Marie Taquet who was not only responsible for the home’s finances,food source and hiding the children but he was also responsible for all the region’s underground resistance movement. Along with many other teachers Ivon Filot was responsible for educating the boys both jewish and gentile. All the boys, jewish and non-jewish were put into multiple groups led by a counselor. The jewish boys were treated and acted just as their non- jewish pupils, they went to mass and participated in the afternoon activities. When the German soldiers raided the school Emile protected the children without hesitation. These people put their lives on the line and asked for nothing in return. They not only protected and gave shelter to the children through the Nazi threat but they educated them too.

“Failure is not opposite of success, it’s part of success.” - Anonymous. In order to stand, you will fall. Even the best authors, musicians, actors, dancers, etc failed in the beginning. You can’t just stand up and expect to take off running. In order to run you have to take the first baby step. During that first step, you 're going to fall but if you are determined you will get back up, and do it all again. A few people famous people who failed in the beginning, but made it big in the end are; Walt Disney and Elvis Presley.
Failure is vital to the growth of not only heroes, but ordinary people as well, as it teaches them how to move past their guilt and negativity in order to persevere. Through the article Nine Ways to Fail Better, the author shows that it’s not easy to deal with failure, but it is extremely important to move on. The author states, “Blaming yourself for the bad things that happen to you--are probably the biggest reason people metabolize failure badly.” In expressing that one should put the blame on themselves, “for the bad things that happen to [them]” stresses the idea that failure is often inevitable, and there is not much that can change the outcome of the situation. Additionally, there is no sense in feeling shameful about failure. Along with the self-blame associated with failure,
Though many who have read Esperanza Rising by Pam Munoz Ryan believe that Esperanza and her mother should have stayed in Aguascalientes, Mexico, on the contrary, I believe that they were right to leave for California. If they stayed, they would have had to face several consequences, one being having to live with Esperanza’s uncle, despicable Tio Luis. At the same time, when they went to California, they did not have to leave everything behind, it was a choice they made. After all, as Esperanza herself said in the book, “Do not ever be afraid to start over.” (p. 253)

Do you ever wonder what it was like to live in a time period where children didn’t have basic workplace rights? Mary Jones knew how this felt. She was a labor activist, as well as a children's rights activist. Mary lived during the time when women, workers, children, and slaves fought for their rights. She took risks and always had her eyes set on her goals. She even gained a nickname from miners due to her kindness- Mother. I believe that Mary Jones is similar to many people who fought for their rights and for the rights of others because of her persistence- a trait that all activists must have.

It is important to realize that Sanger’s campaign for a women’s to choose birth control was at a time when women where not thought of as equals and contraception was considered to be obscene at the time. In fact, she provokes a hostile reaction among Christian leaders that considered her concepts for birth control to be offensive and evil to society. Her advocacy work drew controversy from political followers that criticized her association with science to be immoral for seeking to improve or change the human population. She was often criticized and associated which eugenics, the branch of science that believed in improving the human species through selective mating. However her goal was to allow women to have control over how many children
Throughout my life time I have been inspired by many great people but the one who stands out the most is Marian Wright Edelman. Marian, born June 6,1939, has been an advocate for disadvantaged American for her entire professional life. She is the president and founder of Children 's Defense Funds, and an activist for the rights of children. I first read about Mrs. Edelman when I came across an inspirational quote from her, "You really can change the world, if you really care enough" This quote spoke to me in many ways. Out of curiosity, I continued to do more research on her and what I learned were things that changed my life for the better. I read a story about her father, Arthur Wright, who only wished two things. He wanted his children to
In our life, there are periods of challenges that we must face, but the real challenge is how we grow and learn from overcoming them. Being naive children, we believed that life was simplistic and effortless. Well, we were wrong, we can only yearn for life to be easy. Growing up, we continue to face countless hurdles that only get bigger and bigger. My life, in particular, has been filled with numerous up and downs. It felt like I was in an endless roller coaster going up and down. Some believe that life is filled with obstacles and experiences that will help us pave the path to our own successes. But is that really accurate? There are some points in life when I’ve felt that I would never conquer a problem. From trying to learn to walk, to making big decisions that would affect the outcome of life. There are always complications and doubts that block our path. What job am I to choose? What university do I apply for? These thoughts will soon turn into a bitter reality. A reality that we will have to face. I would do anything to go back in time when I thought learning division was complicated as untying a series of knots. Sadly, this is the harsh reality, but even in this reality, we see even ourselves getting through a barrier. Life isn’t a game where you only have one try. Even when we stumble a thousand times, we can still manage to get back up, and it’s that thing about life that leaves me in awe. Life is a series of failures and lessons. Sometimes, even failures are
