The one and only thing that was on my mind most of the time was the urge to escape but I know that I just have to stay put so that my father won’t be beaten for my actions or beheaded. I have to finish my required work or the Japanese won’t give me food. I finish and then go get some rest for another day of hard labor. My name is Nick, and I am Nervous, constantly worrying about my father, and I am a typical 14 year old boy who was sent to Burma up in Hawks Nest by my mom. It’s 1941
I felt really good recognizing the military families. It is not only the people who serve in the military, but their families also. Yes, it is their family member who goes through weeks and weeks or training, then fights for their country and what they believe in to protect their loved ones. The soldiers’ family also has to go without their family member and pray that everything will be okay, or that the soldiers will not get called into battle. When they wake up, they have no idea of what they will face, which is taking a risk, but those are things that the soldiers are willing to
I knew my nieces and nephews would be graduated from high school by the time I got done, and that my grandmother almost surely wouldn 't be with us. I would not sacrifice that much of my life, and absent myself from the lives of my loved ones for so long. My life experiences made it mandatory that my career aspirations allow for balance. This anxiety and stubbornness created the perfect conditions for an epiphany. My inspiration to pursue optometry was seeded from a long overdue visit to an optometrist, rooted in my perseverance as a student,
He was going to sign to be a man and he knew a way to do it.” This demonstrates how he is willing to leave his family and everything he has to go fight in the war. He wanted to show he had as much national pride as the adults did. Lastly, “If she had known and and could tell him what would come of it, she would have fought to drag him back and the federal government could keep their eleven dollars a month.” This illustrates how dangerous the war was. Here, his mother is saying how she would have made him stay home and not given into his pleads if she knew how much trouble he would be going into. Therefore, Charley shows his pride for his side because he does a lot to make sure he is in the army and can
But my grandfather stuck to the old ways.” This quote shows how much Mary’s father valued tradition. By not wanting to be involved in Ta-Na-E-Ka it causes a lot of tension between Mary and her family. This ritual is also one of the most important events in an eleven-year-old, Kaw’s life. “At eleven a boy could prove himself a warrior. A girl took the first steps to womanhood.” Mary had her own thoughts about growing up so she decides to do Ta-Na-E-Ka her own way.
Odysseus’s first main step was to go on a war to save his people and his homeland (Ithaca). He just had a baby (Telemachus) with Penelope his wife so he didn’t want to leave them because he knew that it would take sometime to come back home. He is forced to leave because his homeland was in huge trouble. Odysseus told his men to get ready for war and get the ship 's ready. He takes a few men and a few ships along.
Growing up as Hmong-American youth, I was raised by a father who joined the military when he was twelve years old. He was forced into the Vietnam war fighting for safety, peace, and a relationship with the United States of America. Through this military influence and discipline at such a young age, my father accepted the military lifestyle. He carried it over from the Vietnam war to my family today. Growing up, my father was always strict on me, especially when it came to my appearances and education.
American’s fought many wars in his eyes and we deserved to live the American dream. A famous quote of his speech that I remember from high school is “I have a dream my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but the content of their character.” (King) When I read this statement I could relate due to having a child also. We want the best for our kids and that is what he wanted s a father. The line was an emotional line due to most of the American people having children
As a private in the military I couldn’t figure out what I wanted to study for college or even if I wanted to go to college until I became a Noncommission Officer (NCO). I have always looked up to my NCOs when it came to their guidance about growing in the military. They always expect soldiers to push themselves physically and mentally when it comes to moving up in rank which really opened my eyes. I then decided to pursue a degree in Occupational Safety and Health Administration. I started my journey February 2009, and have since grow from a young private to a Noncommission Officer in the hazardous protection field.
She waited for her father to come home. He had been sent overseas somewhere, to fight for the military. He was expected to come home that day. The little girl waited all morning and all afternoon, but he was not home yet. She was slightly worried, but she was very hopeful.
One fourth of the way around the world, away from Darfur is a similar problem concerning the Hmongs. Hmongs have resided in southern Asia for ages. They have done many great and if America wins, they would be responsible of building schools and sending teachers over to educate the Hmongs’ way of living. If America loses the war in Vietnam, Americans promised to welcome Hmong people over to America to escape any further harm or problems. Not many people know about this promise, but Hmong parents remind their kids everyday that if their children were to go to school and have racial discrimination against their language or culture, their children should remember the great things they did for America and challenge the saying that Hmongs should return to their homeland.
Deciding to attend Texas A&M University was both a hardship and immense, opportunity in my life. Coming from a close knit background, and possessing a very family oriented character, my decision to come to this incredible institution was one out of my comfort zone. If I was to be asked one year ago, If I could ever see myself standing on this marvelous campus, attending one of the top schools in the nation, I would have honestly responded, no. My counselors would have said no, my friends, my college advisor, my family. The answer would not have been yes, not because I wasn 't capable of meeting the standards to attend, but because there seemed more obstacles in my way than there was forces pushing me forward.
He knew he wanted something better for his life, but he also knew there was no way he’d achieve that unless he joined the military. He joined the United States Marine Corps for served for eleven years. When he joined he left behind a child and a wife. Ten years ago, I met the child, Kiley Robbins. The Robbins are my second family.
Mr.Prokes understood me. He knew what i wanted to do with my life, when I wanted to do it and how I was gonna do it. I never would 've thought that I would leave him the first year I met him. All though, he emailed my mother saying: "Dear Jeri Johnson, Your son this year had a rough year. Myself and Mr.Pargaen tried to make it better, but this class needs serious help.
My family did not want her to marry him, because of some important traditional and she is young too. We tell her every day to come for few months or travel in USA, because she just wanted to stay with my parents. We hope, if she come here for travel, she might change. I tell her about America is a great country, friendly people, healthy food, have sightseeing things, and very peaceful. In additional, I have not seen my family for few years, so I miss her.
