It is through this knowledge that I have learned to overcome discrimination and the uncertainty of living in the shadows. I experience rejection and discrimination throughout the formative years when my character was being built, but that allowed me to become the person I am today.

Without any legal documentation stating I could be in this country, I was afraid I would not be able to continue my education or obtain a job in my desired field.
My life as a military brat has not always been easy. In the last 19 years, I have moved five different times and dealt with my father deploying for months at a time. Moving is hard on military families because of having to meet new people, figuring out where to go to school, etc. Every military child is unique in their own way, whether it 's because of the different experiences he or she has attained from moving, the different cultures/languages, or even meeting new people. This would not be possible if his or her parent didn’t make the decision to go into the military.

I considered myself closer to my father than I ever was with my mother since he allowed me more freedom.

Even though Robert cannot physically see the narrator’s wife, he is able to understand her a lot more as he listens to her through the tapes they mail back and forth between each other and have seemingly great in-depth conversations. The narrator makes it apparent that he is envious of their relationship as he reminisced about her poem. “In the poem, she talked about what she had felt at the time, about what went through her mind when the blind man touched her…” (par. 3). The rising action begins when Robert arrives and the room fills with awkwardness as the narrator, his wife, and Robert engage in small talk.
Eric Harris was by all accounts a normal high school teenager. Former classmate, Kyle Ross, said, “He was a typical guy. He didn’t seem anything like what is portrayed on TV”. Eric was nothing like what they made him out to be after the Columbine shooting but after it took place, many untold secrets came out that were both crucial and imperative regarding Eric and Dylan.

It was two months before my fifth grade graduation and three years from my parents divorce. Little did I know the news my mom told me that day would change my life forever. Tears came down my face when she told me we were going to be moving to New Jersey. At this moment I was feeling very confused and startled. Not only was I upset because I was leaving a place I have called home for eight years, but because I was leaving my friends and most importantly my dad and brother.
However, my mother got me through that dark time. She got me the help I needed and gave me the strength to pick up the broken pieces in order to put it back together.

I loss the one thing I ever wanted, success but soon came to realize that God has bigger plans. Entering my senior year of high school.
