The first time that I interact with people whose beliefs differ from mines was when I was in Mexico. In that time my family was thinking of moving to Florida, because in that time the situation in Mexico was going through a very difficult situation that was the drug trade, when we lived in Mexico it was very difficult for my family because sometimes you could not go for a walk to the park or somewhere else because of the drug dealers. My parents began to think that my brother and I needed a place where we could be a little free and the family of my mother at that time was living in Florida then my parents decided that we would move to Florida. The day my parents decided to talk to my brother and me was very difficult because we all thought
Tufano states, “Champaign police received 38 complaints of rape or attempted rape in the year this newspaper was published. Then the newspaper goes on to talk about the fact that 35 reports of rape were actually reported. However, in the previous year only 29 rapes were reported.” This is a high number of cases that have occured, that could have been prevented. This is an significant fact, because all of the women involved in rape, or attempted rape were affected in some way. They could have been left traumatized, or felt as if they no longer felt safe or protected while being on campus. This should have been a huge concern in the Illinois community because rape is wrong, and if this kept happening, students could start to lose their sense of safety because rape can happen to anyone. Yet, even today, generations later, rape is still a prevalent issue on the U of I
In society and college campuses, sexual assault occurs quite frequently. According to an estimation one third of women experience a forced sexual experience at least once in their life and most of the time it occurs in colleges. Men have also been reported to be victim of sexual assaults mostly by other men. Most of the time the sexual assault is planned and perpetrated by a third person, who is known to the victim of incident. Drug and alcohol use play role in this issue and contribute to the problem as most of the time the victim and perpetrators are under the effect of alcohol or any other drug during the incident. It looks scary how vulnerable the survivor can be at the time of assault. However, as long as the matter of violence is associated, the students at college campuses are safer than their non-college mates. Some training and education has been administrated to the students for awareness about the violence and sexual assaults. Even, with increased training and education, most of the college campuses have much longer way to go for decreasing the intensity and number of assaults and the incidents have immense negative impact on the society and people around us.
As American lights illuminate the stunning skyline of opportunity, we, as Americans, don't always bask in the glory of this powerful glow. Within the nonfiction novel Enrique's Journey by Sonia Nazario, a teenage boy, Enrique, sums up the courage of a thousand men to travel through treacherous trials to find his mother in America. Showing more bravery than I ever will muster in my entire lifetime, Enrique has made a deep impression upon me about perseverance; however, with his determination to reach his mother, I was surprised with how many times he was forced to begin his perilous journey again. In modern day American society, we witness hardship and a struggle to start again on the movie screens, but we are comforted by the distance that is

The number of shootings that have happened lately on college campuses is frightening. Colleges should go to the extreme to keep campus safe. According to Russia Today 's website, there have been 52 campus shooting in the year 2015 in the US. If this continues, the shootings will increase and more students will die. Campus officials and other staff should work hand in hand with the government system, so they can strengthen security on campuses. The issue is how far should colleges go to keep campuses safe? Well for the students’ sake, colleges must go to an extreme to keep campuses safe. As a college student, it is import to keep the campus safe for me and yet alone everyone else. With the number of shootings that have been happening lately,
In the continuous of this project, the offender population that was chosen is the sex offender population. Sex offenders are defined as an individual who has been convicted of a sexual assault. These assaults include but no limited to rape, pedophiles, child sexual abuse, sodomy, sexual abuse, and non-contact sexual offense (“Sex Offender Law & Legal Definition,” 2001). This population is also considered special offenders. They are considered special, due to the vulnerability within certain setting (such as prison), and how they have specialized programs to help treat these individuals in behavior and reducing criminality and recidivism (Samuels, 2013)
The largest problem presented is the sheer volume of sexual assault that actually takes place on college campuses. The number of assaults reported each year equate to an assault occurring every 98 seconds in the United States with 1 out of 5 women experiencing sexual assault at some point in their life. It is estimated that 70% of victims of sexual assault will not inform the police or campus directors. There are many theories as to what would keep a victim from speaking out against their attacker and the most pressing theory that comes into play is the fear of the victims being blamed for what happened to them. The blame an individual feels after a sexual assault is arguably the most immense difficulty that is at play with sexual assaults. For one such victim, Megan Wright, it was enough guilt and blame that she took her own life in 2006, less than a year after being sexually assaulted on her college campus in New York. The anomaly surrounding Megan is that she spoke up against her attacker and her claim was not taken seriously and as a result there were no consequences for the alleged offender. This circumstances such as this sheds light on another quandary relating to sexual assault on college campuses, the lack of consequences for the individuals that commit these crimes. In 2006, Margaux J. was the victim of a sexual assault on the Indiana

At the time her family was moving, Sophia was healing from a heartbreak. Her fiance and her have been engaged for year and a half.

We were on our way to New Mexico to visit my grandparents. At this time, I lived in Texas so it was not that far and they lived by the state line of Texas, the North West side of Texas. It always took us about four hours to get there but this trip was a little different. We were in tornado season so you know where this is going it could have been like two and a half hours. Then we hear on the radio a tornado alert luckily there was a rest point with a gas station so we stopped and went inside I was only like nine years old but remember this day. Were inside the gas station and the manager tells us we have to go in the bathroom not even a minute goes by and we can hear a train like noise.
Have you ever just had something that meant so much to you, that you would do anything to not loose it? If that's the case then let me continue.It was a hot, sunny day in Dominican Republic, August. As I was on my way to my Grandfather's house.I would never forget this time, I went to Dominican Republic just to visit my Grandfather, thinking it was going to be amazingly fun. But instead it got a bit emotional.There was once , five years ago, when I was in second grade. I found out I was going to Dominican Republic. One year before that when I was in first grade, I went to Dominican Republic. The next day after we were there I went to my Grandfather's house with my mom and little cousin. When we went to visit he told me to go get something from his room. When I went over to the room I heard him whispering something to my mom. When I was walking back towards the living room where my Grandfather and my mother were, I gave him the box he wanted. When I gave it to him he was searching for something. Once he finally found what he wanted, he handed me something. It was very light. When I look down I realize it was an old photo.I kind of realized who the people were I knew one of them was me. I wasn't really sure who the women was.
Sexual assault is a truly horrendous act that colleges should be trying to reduce by improving the security on the campus. Of course freedom plays a major role in college, however with how often these assaults happen, measures must be taken such as the increase of campus security. Increasing the amount of security officers will decrease opportunities of attacks and increase the chances of receiving help in the chance that a student is being sexually assaulted. Having security officers patrol the campus will also increase the safety of the campus as they will be able to notice any suspicious behavior and scare off any possible assailants. Increasing the campus’ security is not solely limited to personnel but may include increasing and repairing lighting fixtures across the campus. In case a student is walking
