Which makes me all the more determined to make sure that I keep that kind of love and support around myself at all times. What those athletes demonstrated to me is the kind of power there is in surrounding yourself in an atmosphere where love thrives above all else. Hence, I am grateful for my gift of discernment, which has helped me weed out some of the toxic people in my life. Maintaining healthy boundaries is an ongoing process for me, but there is no love or nobility in allowing others to mistreat me, no matter how "good" their intentions or the explanations they provide me. When what a person says does not match what they do, it is always the action that leaves the deepest impression because actions always speak louder than
This character clearly relates to the theme of the book, which is age and race can impact somebody’s life a lot. My character, Richard Perry, changed throughout this book from the beginning to end exceptionally. In the starting point of the book, Richard joined the war in Vietnam because his depressed mother couldn’t afford for him to go to college. While he was stationed in Vietnam, Richard met another soldier named Peewee, he was from Chicago and seemed very daring and determined.
These new technologies have increased the level of accountability and the need for police to adhere to impartial enforcement of the law.

Through his affiliation with the smalltime gang the “Forty Thieves Juniors”, Al met the man who would foster him into dominance of gangland, Johnny Torrio. Johnny Torrio was a resourceful man, as were most mob bosses, and he wasted no time in enlisting the help of the young foot soldiers in streets of Brooklyn. Between the ages of sixteen and eighteen, Al Capone quickly climbed the ranks in Torrio’s organization known as “The Outfit”. Although dealing with prostitutes most of his teenage life, Al found his first and only love the moment he saw Mary Josephine Coughlin, whom was called Mae. She was Irish and Catholic and for this reason their marriage was a controversial and strenuous
Near closing time I would make sure that everything was in the right place, neat, and immaculately prepared for the upcoming day. Although not required for volunteers, I would do my best to give honest advice and guidance to customers. Along with that, I would learn skills that most volunteers did not care to learn and taught them to the employees while giving sincere advice on how things could run smoother. The most humbling part of the experience was seeing faces of children of less-fortunate families; they always had such sweet sweeping smiles to face the uncertain the future. And it was because of those faces I went back day-after-day to help out in any way I
My mom my noticed detachment from reality I was expressing and she decided to enroll us in taekwondo a few years later. I knew nothing about the sport, but was eager to try something new. Thorough every punch and kick I practiced, I did it for my dad. I tried my hardest each day I was there knowing he was watching me grow into a stronger person. After three hard years of getting kicked in the face to dodging punches, I earned my first degree black belt.
I told myself everyday to forget about the pain and work hard to make the competition performance great. I didn’t want to spend another year standing on the sidelines of I could be perform with the team. My wrist hurt terribly, but I performed to the best of my ability. The competition went great, and I didn’t feel the pain until after our two minute routine was over. Cheerleading has shown me that my determination, attitude and effort help me accomplish great adventures in life.
My personal strengths are that I am a dedicated student as well as never giving up. For me, I love being involved in things that makes a difference in our community and our school, that is why I am in an abundant amount of community service clubs. I am always consistent and not doing things last minute or just because it looks good on college apps. I do it because it means something to me and that I want to make a difference. Sometimes, there are times in my life that I am not able to handle the things on my plate, but I am resilient and able to pick myself back up on my own.
Our coach is a strong believer that in order to be successful as a team, it is important to support each other like a family. This familial atmosphere and support that I received from my fellow teammates was the reason I went to compete at OFSAA my first year of wrestling. Not only did I earn a spot at OFSAA that year, I also competed at the Cadet/Juvenile Provincial Championships. Although, I did not place at this tournament, it was an excellent learning experience that I will never forget. In grade 10, I earned the Marauder award for wrestling, which was a true honour, simply because most of the time the Marauder award and the MVP award are usually given to a grade 12 on the team.
The quote that sums up the whole book is “Wrapping up the paperwork on the average homicide investigation can take days. But this case was anything but average.”(pg 388) This is the best quote to sum up NYPD Red 2 because it shows how this was a completely insane homicide case that would take weeks to wrap up because there was multiple murders, one of the killers died, an innocent woman was kidnapped and tortured and the Mafia got involved. Overall NYPD Red 2 is a very thought provoking book that has puzzling parts, humorous parts, and suspenseful
I had the privilege to interview Ed Locklear who is employed at the Pembroke Police Department where he serves as the Assistant Chief and Captain of the department. Ed Locklear has 19 years of experience, and says he truly enjoys his job. He has been with the Pembroke agency for 3 years now, and before that he worked at the campus of UNC Pembroke. His job duties are usually to help the Chief with day to day operations, such as training for some of the other men at the agency, ordering equipment that they may need, responding to calls, and patrolling the area every now and then. His typical day as the Captain is patrolling, checking out the area to make sure nothing bad is happening, and business walk throughs to make sure everything is running smoothly and no one is causing any trouble.
I am evolved with volunteering at various events through the Interact club here at MHS. By volunteering within the town it gives me good morals. It teaches me to always give back to my community, but it is rewarding to help people in need. My leadership skills shines when I babysit. It is a huge responsibility to make sure a child, or sometimes an infant is safe at all times.
“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. “People tend to forget about Terry Fox after high school, as if cancer is no longer a problem to them. I believe it is important to maintain the values he has exhibited and continue to support cancer research even after high
I ran to the 45 to the 35 to the 20, hoping to find the kick returner. 8 months waiting for this moment all the sweat, pain, 100 degree sun beaming UV rays to my face. I kept going for the guy next to me performing to the best to his ability. Success was the result of all the hard relentless work done throughout June into August. I acknowledged that my team had a good group of seniors who were high character student-athletes I spent most of childhood with.Ultimately finishing with a record of 3 wins and 7 loses taught me many lessons on becoming a better person and
