Growing up in a Mexican household, the food we ate always had a spice to it. Whether the spice was on the side or already prepared in the food, my food always had a spice to it. My grandma’s favorite signature spice was her Pico De Gallo. Pico de Gallo also called salsa Fresca, is made from chopped tomato, onion, cilantro, fresh Serrano’s (jalapeños or habaneros are used as alternatives), salt, and key lime juice. At first I did not like Pico de Gallo because I couldn’t bear how spicy it was. My grandma noticed I would not eat the Pico De Gallo, therefore she decided to make the taste less spicy specifically for myself. Whenever my grandma would cook she always made sure to prepare Pico De Gallo. Because of my Grandma it is now in my family tradition to have Pic De Gallo whenever we cook or have dinner as a family. The Pico De Gallo brings my family together as one because it reminds us of my grandma. The Pico De Gallo will never leave sight of my family because it is the best memory we have of my Grandma. Eventually as I got older I began to make Pico De Gallo for myself with my own home cooked meals. I learned from my Grandma and Mom how to make Pico De Gallo. I don’t make the exact same Pico De Gallo as my Grandma or Mom but I do add the same
Haley Tanner’s “Vaclav and Lena” is a novel that has its unique ways of connecting to the readers’ past and their personalities. Its plot might not be related to anything people here in this country might have experienced, but the minute details that the book introduces can really stand out to anyone who comes across them. These little details all revolve around the relationship between two Russian born children, Vaclav and Lena. They grew together as a two peas in a pod but their innocence and ignorance soon leads them into separate paths. It was the day when “Lena, who has been his only friend wince they were small, does not want to be seen with him” (41). Being brushed aside like this is far from heartbreaking. As I read that paragraph, more than once,
I chose to counsel a 3/C midshipmen who is in my squad this semester. As a fire team leader I have been fortunate to have been given many opportunities to counsel numerous midshipmen in my fire team. After my initial counseling session with the 3/C, I was able to figure out the basics such as, CQPR, ECA, aptitude, conduct grade. When this assignment presented itself to me I realized that I could use this to make significant strides on this particular 3/C midshipmen. I had decided to peruse this 3/C because her conduct and aptitude grade had fallen significantly since last semester. It was apparent that she had been struggling, so I decided to counsel her to help her get back on a successful track. Since the beginning of plebe year this midshipmen was not only loved by her classmates, but she excelled in sports and stayed out of trouble; however, this semester was quite the opposite. I chose to rectify or rather help the 3/C guide herself

Over a year ago my Aunt Bernadette and my Uncle Glenn got divorced. My Aunt didn’t take it very well, but to the rest of my family it didn’t come as much of a surprise. They were always fighting with each other over petty things and didn’t get along. However, my Aunt couldn’t accept that she was part of the problem, so she decided to push the blame onto someone else. That someone being my Grandmother. She said that my Grandma was too involved in their relationship. My Aunt thought that my Grandmother calling them and wanting to see them was driving a fork in her marriage. My Aunt accusing my Grandma is similar to when the girls were screaming out people they claimed to have seen walking with the devil in Act one of the play. The girls were all watching as Tituba was giving up names of people she saw with the devil. Seeing her being praised for gave Abby the idea to confess and then accuse people as well, which caused all the other girls to do the same.

In previous articles, I’ve written about the importance of connecting with teenagers long after they have been ‘officially’ yours. Perhaps they were in your charge when they were in middle school or junior high, and now, they are in senior high, they have graduated high school, or maybe have gone on to graduate college, get married and have children of their own. Regardless of any of those landmarks (as significant as they may be), still recognizing your kids from when they were early teenagers can be extremely empowering to them.
