The event that I have chosen is the Freedom Rides, which started May 4, 1961 and ended December 10, 1961. The Freedom Rides were inspired by the Greensboro Sit-ins, and started with 13 African American and Caucasian protestors riding buses into the segregated south to challenge the lack of enforcement to the Supreme Court ruling that segregated buses were unconstitutional. While the activists were peaceful the local law enforcement and people against their message were not. The activists were beaten at several stops along their journey from Anniston to Birmingham with chains, bricks, and bats by Ku Klux Klan (KKK) members in Alabama, and activists that were injured would be refused hospital treatment. Bull Connor, Commissioner of Public Safety
All things in life can be enjoyable but also unexpected. Everyone has their own natural high. My natural high is riding my dirt bike. Even though riding my dirt bike is fun, it can also be very dangerous. It is very important to always wear safety gear while operating an off-road vehicle. Remember to always pay attention to the surroundings.
Disaster strikes when we least expect it and when we’re the least prepared. Life or death situations that leave us wondering “why?”. My own brush with death still puzzles me to this day; why was everything so slow? The car ride was slick in the dead of winter. The winding road looked wet from the previous rain storm, but instead was covered with a thin layer of black ice. The old ford lurched off the road and climbed a hill adjacent to the road, only to roll back down and land roof first into the icy terrain. As I was hanging upside down, dangling by my seatbelt, I could feel blood dripping onto my face. I remember the buzzing in my head, my mom screaming my name, but I couldn’t reply. Everything was in slow motion. The firefighters shining light into my eyes, the ambulance sirens blaring, my dad rushing to us after hearing the news. In Amanda Ripley’s The Unthinkable, she explores why disasters happen and what happens in people's mind during these events. She places these actions on her Survival Arc, which she created through research. You could experience denial, deliberation or the decisive moment during disaster. Our bodies have certain hard-wired physical responses which allows us to all

In March of 1993, there was a NASCAR race in Atlanta in which my dad and four of his friends decided to take a road trip to. The weather predicted for the race was supposed to be cold and rainy. My dad was the kind of person to prepare for anything, so he took gear for rain and cold weather. My dad, pulling a pop up camper behind his Chevy Silverado, met his four friends in Chattanooga. They finally got to Atlanta, where they set up in the middle green of the raceway. During the night before the race, they were awakened many times because the wind was blowing extremely hard. The next morning, they woke up to over a foot of snow. So much for the prediction of rain with no snow in the forecast. Obviously, the race was cancelled. My dad 's
In the words of John Steinbeck, a famous author known for writing about social and economic issues “A journey is a person in itself; no two are alike. We find that after years of struggle that we do not take a trip: a trip takes us”. Many famous people include the “what” about journeys, but many don’t include the “why”. The objective of a journey is to change or teach something about the character’s morals, connections between people or about the Earth. Some famous examples of these teachings include The Odyssey by Homer, The Good Soldiers by David Finkel and The Cruelest Journey: 600 Miles to Timbuktu a travel narrative by Kira Salak. All these texts have characters or real people in the case of The Good Soldiers and The Cruelest Journey:
“We are going to Gatlinburg, Tennessee this summer!” my mom said. My sister and I were very excited to go somewhere for the first time during the summer! My aunt Cheryl and her boyfriend Scott.
As with any story it is only fair to mention the rough times. Then when you read about the laughable times, it is worth it. There are a few incidents that I would like to mention in this book. Only because it might assist people in avoiding the ‘first time’ mistakes of owning this type of dog. Tailgate was built short and stout. He was a blue brindle, which made him very different in appearance, compared to most pit bulls. It also made him a target for ignorance. The first time I experienced this was at the gas station. I had Tailgate in the backseat, and my daughter was in the front. We had stopped to purchase gas. All of a sudden this woman starts yelling at me that I had stolen her dog out the backyard. I was dumbfounded. Not only did I
When I was like 7 my grandpa brought a book to me from his trip to detroit. It was a book about cars. It was like my favorite book for a long time because I liked cars a lot when I was growing up. The book was about a bunch of different chevrolet cars and who made them and designed them and stuff like that. Thats why I was so interested in the book.
Moving truck. What does that mean? I view moving trucks as a symbol for me, who I am as a person. Since my dad is in the military, moving has been a big part of my life since I was born. I’ve moved a total of 8 times now (more or less), and with all of that moving experience, I view moving in a variety of ways.
I was traveling west on Route 254. I slowed down to almost a complete stop as another vehicle in front of me was turning into their driveway. I heard squealing tires, I saw Vehicle 2(Pontiac) swerve to the right just before it struck my vehicle. Vehicle 3 (Red) did not make any contact with vehicle 2 and struck my vehicle in addition the driver of vehicle 3 fled the scene without exchanging information.
High schoolers awake prior to visible sunlight and stumble out of bed, dreading the stressful studies of public education. Facing a variety of struggles each morning from the alarm failing to go off to spilling coffee on the paper they spent the whole night perfecting, their attitudes worsen. Hoping for a peaceful moment during breakfast, they grab a cereal box from the cupboard and discover emptiness. Now, the lethargic and irritable teen has reached frustration. If any positivity can turn this day around before school begins, it must occur during the trip there; for those who do not drive, the horrors of riding a bus stare them in the face.
At around 6 o 'clock my mom and I would hook the horse trailer and hitch it to the bake of her truck to head to the horse action. Along the way she would tell me I’m story is on miss treatment and why most at four action. I didn 't think much of the stories at the time, they were so bad and I didn 't choose to believe the stories. Reaching the auction around 7 o 'clock at night we would have to find a place to park the huge horse trailer and truck, it was always a pain in the butt. I would click open the door dangle my toes done and jump out of the truck and mom and I would meet up with her friends. At the time I was maybe nine and her friends never had any kids, and I was mostly bored until we got to the animals. Depending on the time of
I remember the voices, the screaming, and the sound of glass breaking as I was pulled from the car. The adrenaline pulsed through my core to the point I couldn 't breathe. Everything felt amazing, and I felt like I was flying. Colors were more vivid and life seamed so wonderful for a split second. Was this it? Had this been the end of me? Then again at the same time everything in my body burned. Was I on fire? Maybe I was on fire. Maybe I really couldn 't breathe. Oh shit I couldn 't breathe. I felt like there was cotton in my throat. What was that bright light? And that one? One after another the bright lights flashed over my closed eyelids. My right arm had gone limp, and my right leg was doing the same. They were trying to get my clothes off but as much as I tried to help them, everything felt like jello. I got so
