“Estevan and Esperanza had one suitcase between them and it was smaller then mine...I had packed for a week, ten days at the outside, and they were packed for the rest of their lives.” (Kingsolver 251). They had to live lightly because of moving around all the times to hide so that way they are not sent back to Guatemala. Just as when they moved to the safe house in Oklahoma. But before they went there they helped secure Turtle’s adoption with Taylor by pretending to be Turtle’s real parents so that

Dr. Waldo said, “Heartily wish myself at home, my skin and eyes are almost spoil’d with continual smoke.” Dr. Waldo wants to go home too and he is the doctor so he should probably be one of the most loyal soldiers to Washington. The summer soldiers are going home. (Paine 153) It is not like the summer soldiers did not help fight in the war and I also served my nine month enlistment. “But he who stands now, deserves the love and thanks of man and women.” (Paine 153) I stand now and served my time so even though I am not re-enlisting I still deserve thanks. “There were no beds, just straw on the mud floor.
I felt really good recognizing the military families. It is not only the people who serve in the military, but their families also. Yes, it is their family member who goes through weeks and weeks or training, then fights for their country and what they believe in to protect their loved ones. The soldiers’ family also has to go without their family member and pray that everything will be okay, or that the soldiers will not get called into battle. When they wake up, they have no idea of what they will face, which is taking a risk, but those are things that the soldiers are willing to
Atticus always has empowering advice to give to his children because of his integrity and ability to stay calm. When Scout struggles to make a good impression on her first day of school, she tells Atticus that she is not going back and that she does not like her teacher, Miss. Caroline. Atticus reminds Scout that it is Miss. Caroline’s first day as well and told her that, “You never really understand a person until you consider things from his point of view-until you climb into his skin and walk around in it” (Lee 33).
“I should be with you!” But my husband hadn’t gone on a vacation in five years; his every waking moment had been spent caring for me, taking care of my broken body, my needs, managing my illness. Because of that, I forced him to go on this trip. It took months of convincing, but he finally relented, and his sister had gone along with him. And he was having an incredible time, the best of his life! Without me.
Lisa had written the article I Survived Postpartum Depression, But It Never Left Me, discussing her first hand experience with postpartum depression, how it still affects her years later, and the importance of understanding that it may not leave. After her son’s birth, instead of joy, she felt something she had never felt before. For almost two years after her son was born, Romeo had the horrible feeling that she was living to survive and nothing more (Romeo). Lisa says, “ I was supposedly no longer fighting off postpartum depression that matters. What came next—what, even now that my sons are 21 and 17, persists—are days and nights and long worrisome moments of everyday life” (Romeo).
I’ve been anticipating the season to start for about the last 5+ months. These past couple of months have been so boring cause I have been doing nothing but going to school. No sports for that long is awful so every time baseball comes around I 'm so ecstatic. So you know I have been counting down the days until the season. This year I was drafted to the diamondbacks, every year this league

Dory, tagging along as a classroom helper, gets herself sucked into the undertow of the rays, and begins to remember pieces of her childhood.
Gramps continues to educate and teach in his writing once she has set off to North America to beat the odds: “While we are on that matter, I also wish you to promise me that when you are famous, you will make things possible for others — especially those of your own race” (Mordecai 66). For many females, the mother, grandmother, or some female figure teaches or guides the adolescent female, but here Gramps teaches Grace. He teaches her morals and ethics; he teaches her how to survive. “True, Gramps arm her with counsel about how to survive winter, but she never experiences nothing like this” (Mordecai 133). Gramps is an educator, protector to Grace Healer.
One fourth of the way around the world, away from Darfur is a similar problem concerning the Hmongs. Hmongs have resided in southern Asia for ages. They have done many great and if America wins, they would be responsible of building schools and sending teachers over to educate the Hmongs’ way of living. If America loses the war in Vietnam, Americans promised to welcome Hmong people over to America to escape any further harm or problems. Not many people know about this promise, but Hmong parents remind their kids everyday that if their children were to go to school and have racial discrimination against their language or culture, their children should remember the great things they did for America and challenge the saying that Hmongs should return to their homeland.

He would tell me from time to time that if anyone were to get hit, he would rather it be him than any us. -3- This was our Senior Scouts third deployment and each time he was on the ground, we all felt feeling of ease. After almost six months of three patrols a days for seven days a week, the platoon started to get a feeling of invincibility. We had had quick a few of near calls with EFPs, but no guntrucks had actually been hit. While we had been engaged quick a lot with small arms and RPGs, we always came out on top with minor or no injuries.
When they showed the video in the morning announcements there were people sniffling in my class.” All donations gathered from the weeks leading up to the Terry Fox run by volunteers were directly given to the Terry Fox foundation, where 84 cents of every dollar goes toward funding cancer research. Over 700 000 000 $ worldwide has so far been raised, and every bit was helpful. So far there has been no cure for cancer, so this fight against cancer will continue even after these runs. It is a long road to take, but nonetheless a worthy one to follow. “I 've been running the Terry Fox runs outside of the school for awhile now, even bringing my son along with me since he could walk,” said Ms. Phan, an avid supporter of the run.
“You’re doing WHAT..?” my mother yelled. I attempted to explain how I wasn’t going to let down my team because of one injury. “Baseball is my whole life, mom. Tomorrow is the first tournament game,” I explained, “I will find a way to play.” Me being the stubborn kid I am, I talked them into letting me play. Luckily, the break was on my catching arm, not my throwing arm.
