For instance, the kids do not have the best education, house equipment, clothing and so on. For me, I have everything they could imagine to be honest and perhaps even the adults as well. I am supremely grateful for the multiple freedoms that they rarely have. I get to stay out late and enjoy a day out with my friends when the kids in El Salvador have be in doors by evening due to gang activity and murders. Most of all I am thankful for my mother.
Erica Sotello Paragraph writing assignment 2 Being a military brat, I 've traveled to many places; so choosing either the country or big city is pretty hard to choose from. I grew up and would love to live in San Antonio, Texas; which is a big city. My entire family lives there and a part of me wouldn 't want to live anywhere else so I could be as close as possible to them. At the age of 12 my family and I moved to Illesheim, Germany; which is in the middle of no where just like the country and there is nothing, but open fields. The thing I loved most about living in Germany was how quiet everything was, there was no loud traffic where we lived, the town and military base was so small that everyone knew everyone and we were all one big
One summer day, out of the blue, my dad decided to take us to South Padre Island. Summer vacation is always a stressful time for me. I’ve always wanted to experience something entertaining, but I never seem to enjoy trips with my family. We complain a lot and don’t get so well along. Everyone I know has really interesting vacation stories in which their families enjoyed awesome adventures and created unforgettable memories.
The Salt Epidemic I loved to travel it was always a was a way for me to get away from the stressful life of school and sports competing to take up the most time meaning I get no time to pretty much rest. But this trip was way different than any other trip I went on the usual trip was relaxing and fun just spending time with either my mom or my dad. But this trip had a different vibe to it we were going to florida with more people than just me mom and my brother Aidan it was seven people coming counting us so I figured I would have no space but I was not aware that I would be picked on by two kids younger than me but they knew I would not strike them or hurt them in anyway so there was going to be some problems if I didn’t straighten them up and teach them how to act like adults. The night that I finally snapped was on saturday the final
It took 16 days to reach to El Paso, Texas. From there, they were all alone. None of them knew English or the way to a safe shelter but they continued on in search of a better life in which they would flourish. Many immigrants from all over the world see America as the country where success is blind to race. Here, they
Florida, the sunshine state, the polar opposite of Washington. I did not care for Florida itself, I cared more for the people in the small town of Jay. I was twelve years old when I moved to Jay and even though I only lived there for a short time, I had the time of my life. I had joined the marching band and made some great friends. The band was a family and I am so thankful I got the opportunity to be a part of that.
Where they live? and What their homes are made up of. While giving you a brief summary on my paper, here are some more facts on how Native Americans live their life. Native Americans eat acorns or wild grass seed mashed up and cooked into flat bread or soup. When European settlers began to settle in North America, they soon learned to eat like the the Native Americans but the main thing they ate was a lot of sweet potatoes, corns, beans, meat, berries and nuts.
They were not very influential but they were my best friends and I enjoyed hanging around with them. We used to go everywhere together, hang out every night. School came and my grades were low and it was not because I was dumb it was because I did not care. I did not care about school I thought that after I graduated I was going to move out the house and live by myself. I thought that everything would be over and that I would still be best friends with my friends when high school ended.
Texas school tends to focus more on athletics and other extra-curricular organizations then focusing on what students are really there for, their education. Another downside is property taxes. Texas property tax rates are pretty high, the state is top 5 in the highest property tax. The reason why Texas has one of highest property tax rate is because there is no state income tax, so things essentially have to balance out somewhere. Weather also can play a huge role on the negative side.
I’m not very tired but I want to be well rested by the time we get to Florida. To help put myself in a better mood I think about all the memories I’m about to make this week. Florida is my favorite place ever so it wasn’t that hard to think of something. I remember waking up as we passed the big green sign reading, “Welcome to Florida.” My heart fluttered with happiness as we crossed the bridge over the vast blue water. I woke my brothers and told them to get up and look out the window.
The community was fantastic as well, the people and atmosphere we lived in when we moved to San Antonio was so much better than Laredo because people were actually nice to you and everyone didn’t look like they were going to cause trouble. All of the time I lived in Laredo and in San Antonio has changed me, when in laredo, I hardly had any friends because I kept moving from school to school and house to house, then it all changed when my family and I moved here to San Antonio, we found a wonderful house with good schools and
I’ve come to terms that not all memories are happy but they are the reasons happy ones can be so much better. That being said, I’ve grown up fortunate. I have a happy family with both parents, a house, and I’ve never been deprived in a survival way. Watching the PBS video I was sad with how many letters Andre Fenton was receiving of people wanting to erase their memories, one guy even going as far to say he wouldn’t mind even if it meant losing all of his memories. At first, I thought how amazing it could be if we could erase memories because I first thought of criminals possibly getting a second chance-if they were able to start completely fresh.
