It is this life that makes them into what they are, strong kids, full of pride for their country. Military children have many strengths that they develop throughout their life in the “fortress” although, it is not one without consequences. They spend their entire youth in service to this country and no one will ever know who they are (Hall 2008). They have to sacrifice more than most at a young age. Most military kids know right from wrong, they take their responsibilities

I woke up thinking it was going to be a normal day I ate breakfast and got dressed. Throughout day the wind was picking up and was changing directors. The windows shattered, wind flood into the room, glass flying everywhere. My mother picked up my sister and I ran down the stairs to the car. We drove to the nearest hospital for safety and shelter.
Referred pain is known and I felt the doctors should have been more knowledgeable with referred pain. All the years of pain were relieved in three hours and I think I was angry for several years that the doctors had not found out what was wrong with me. I quit going to doctors when I was in my twenties because they did not help and my liver could not process medication. Only when I was unable to refuse to go and my husband took me to the emergency room was when I was forced to see a doctor again. I want to be a general practitioner because I do not want anyone else to feel the way I felt in my life.

Grandma has, even more, presents awaiting us to open from 12:00 p.m. to 3 p.m. Then we travel home after a long day of making memories. Once we arrive home, my brother and I entertain ourselves with all of the extraordinary gifts we have received.

As a child, I was so perplexed about what was going on, what I had done so iniquitous to merit all the pain, and the lies I was repetitively being told to tell - that I never spoke. Despite the frequent one-way comments of concern, straight A’s seemed to overcompensate for my lack of speech, and the abuse was kept surreptitious for numerous years by merely transferring schools consistently.
Let me start with this, so my family starts looking for houses and I say “nooo” because I didn’t want to move for the second time. the next day we find a house but the landlord said “the house run down so you have to fix the house”. After 7 weeks later we found a house where I used to live. So we got that house and I thought it was going to be big but it was two rooms like the house I move away from but in the back, there was one more room. So I moved all my stuff in the room I checked the back yard there were fences so I was happy so my dogs cannot escape.
Personal narrative I remember that day better than I remember what I ate for breakfast this morning. I woke up like any other day at 7, except it wasn 't any other day, it would be the first day of School for me in an American school. I was partly excited, partly nervous. I had put on an outfit that my mom told me to put on. When my brother and cousin were both read we all made our way to the bus stop with our parents.
