I would rather live in Miami, Florida than in Peoria, Illinois, because Miami is near Disney, has great shops, and nice weather.
I walked straight up to what looked like an old antique roller coaster made out of wood. I tipped my head up looking at the roller coaster which appeared to go on forever into the sky.
Throughout my childhood growing up in Miami Fl, was an amazing experience, it’s unique variety of cultures spread through one city is absolutely mind blowing. Although there was one thing one my mind at all times. One thing I never experienced was living out west and getting away from the Miami life. Its kind of hard to believe someone would prefer living out west, in the middle of nowhere than along a beach shoreline. As a matter of fact, living out west had become one of my priorities when I was making my college decision. For some odd reason I have at all times wanted to be near a desert or spacious land unlike Miami and that’s why this picture really has an essential meaning to myself.
Everything had been quiet and painfully loud at the same time. I remember standing from afar, trying to get my last gaze at my home. It was the eighth of August in 1932, the day my family 's home was getting torn down.
The sun was setting over the calm bay waters. We could hear the waves breaking on the shore and the bugs chirping. The smell of salt water filled the air. The temperature could not have been better. This is what we drove 13 hours for. We were finally in Florida.
I went to Florida after 4th grade in the summer. When we went to Florida, Jaxon my sisters, brother came with us. The night before we left he stayed at my house. When we left the next morning we left at 3:00 A.M.
• Ch 1: The Ghetto, I chose this title because most the story takes place in the ghetto. This section shows mostly how they lived there.
His feet pounded down onto the blood-stained floor, his stomps ricocheting around the desolate hallway. All around him lights flared and sirens shrieked endlessly, a visual symphony to accompany his impending doom. Shadows encapsulated every part of the room, yet his eyes still darted around, attempting to find any sign of the incoming danger. He sprinted into the confined box of the elevator, the walls around him hugging him close, as if to say he would be safe here. He slammed his hands against the flickering buttons, drops of blood sliding down the metal as he punched it again and again. Seconds passed, each one ticking by ever so slowly, battling his increasingly fast heartbeat. The once welcoming walls began to close in on him, tightening
Running up and down the wooden stairs, so that I can pack for my trip to Miami. As I a throwing my clothes into the pink leopard suitcase, I just sniff baked bacon from the kitchen. I knew mama was cooking breakfast before I leave for Miami and therefore I had to put something in my belly before I took off. I am really excited to go Miami this summer because it is the most southerly city in the United States. Miami is a memorable trip to me because of South Beach, the varied of restaurants and the Everglades. I never knew going to Miami would make me want to travel the world.
I sit on a pile of crushed cardboard boxes stacked on top of each other, staring down at my phone. I hunch over as I hope for a phone call that I know will never come. I punch the numbers into the phone; I slowly exhale before hitting the dial button. The phone begins to ring. A crackling voice answers.
Have you ever been to Florida? When I was seven my family went to Florida. Have you ever been able to take a friend on a vacation? I got to take my vacation with a friend. How cool was that?
There are quite a few things that I have done so far in my life. As for travel, I haven’t experienced that much. I have been to many states on the way to Florida and I often go up north. In the sixth grade, my family and I went to Canada and visited Niagara Falls. It was beautiful and so much fun so that is definitely a place that I want to go back to. Last summer we went on a cruise to the Bahamas. We stayed in Florida for a day and then got onto the ship for a week long cruise. We went to two Bahamian islands called Nassau and Cococay. Then we went to Key West Florida. It was absolutely beautiful and my favorite part of the trip was going to beaches. I really want to go back to the Bahamas. Those are a few of my bigger travelling experiences
"I see ... a pile of skulls and bones. For the first time since my arrival, what I see before me is too painful, and I break down completely. These are my relatives, friends, and neighbors, I keep thinking ... It is a long time before I am calm again. And then I am able, with my bare hands, to rearrange the skulls and bones so that they are not scattered about." In this quote, Cambodian genocide survivor, Dith Pran, illustrates the pure horror the Cambodian people endured during the rule of Pol Pot - mass killing, starvation, executions, and brutal torture, perpetrated by their own ruler. Pot’s rule was not simply a totalitarian dictatorship. It was a totalitarian dictatorship that perpetrated one of the worst genocides in history, known to the world as the Cambodian Genocide.
It was my brother Matthew, my mom, my dad and I . After riding in the car for hours, we got to the hotel. My dad and I unloaded all the stuff out of the car. We waited on the elevator and listened to the music, we were on the 14th floor! I flew through the room to call dibs on the top bunk. I looked out the window with Matthew and saw a colossal water slide. We got our bathing suits on and zoomed down to the pool like rockets. Our parents came down soon. We swam for hours and hours until our fingers looked like wizened raisins. We got dressed and ready to go out to Kobes for dinner. Our
I kept thinking to myself, was I doing the right or wrong or was it worth it. As I felt my hands shake with a force I had no control over. I took courage and grabbed the lightweight black and silver car keys off the dining room large table with sticky coffee stains from breakfast earlier. The house was very silent and peaceful, as if the whole humanity had vanished from the face of the earth. I was bored to death, and suddenly my friend texts me, saying “Hey man, Lets hang out in your brothers car?” since I’m so arrogant, I cared less about whoever taught I was doing the wrong or dangerous, without over thinking it, I took a step forward into the worst decision I could had made in my entire life, yet.
