America was founded because of the people who wanted to escape their old country. It is necessary to contain a little appreciation for the free land we live on. My responsibility is to have a little passion for my country. My country that allows me to feel safe and protected. My country that would go to war for me to protect my freedom.
Researchers suggested that public schools in rural countries would help in developing the country if students enrolled in some community helping projects . Having more helping hands will help develop the country and will help with sharpening the participants way of thinking, projects might also give them a clue about how workplace would be and what experiences will they need upfront and might even open up some job possibilities. Moreover doing projects in teams will help youth develop a sense of teamwork and build trust with peers and
My father 's efforts to help us feel more comfortable and at home continued. With the new house came our first year in an American school. My brother and I were eager to attend school, not knowing how many obstacles we would have to overcome. The first two years of attending an American school were the most difficult for us. Though, we made friends those same friends made an entertainment of our inability
There are children in the Home who have gone up to College with the help of the director and matron, making sure they have everything they need. They do their best to make sure that no matter happens, the children have gone to school and acquired all the knowledge and skills they need in order to live a better future. Education is the key to success because if you get the knowledge you need in school, then you can be whoever you want to be in life. Like my father always tells me, “Go to school but when you graduate, be your own boss and employ people. Be an employee, not an employer.” The children will grow and become better people in society, highly respected, despite their
Others view it less materialistic and more as a lofty ideal, built into the very psyche of America which sets it apart from other countries, centering around equality of opportunity and the ability for anyone to achieve what they want through pure grit and determination in the fabled land of opportunity. Both views have historical precedence - the American standard of living has always been held up as a source of pride with regards to the former, and for the latter, rugged individualism and hard work has formed the basis of our founding legend ever since the first colonists stepped foot off the Mayflower and pushed westwards. My definition is a mixture of both; the ideals of hard work and being able to work towards the lifestyle you desire is central, but the material aspect cannot be ignored since a certain standard of living and income level is required if one wants to actually pursue their dreams and not be subjected to the constraints of poverty. Today the very
In this materialistic age, it is very common that both parents go to work. According to the statistics showed, “the proportion of mothers who were employed increased from 55% in 1991, to 56% in 1996, 59% in 2001, 63% in 2006 and 65% in 2011.” (Baxter) Once, after parents come back home after work, they find the house in a chaos, then they will start to complain that their children do not help them to do housework. Although childhood should be a period of relative freedom, but the parents should teach children from an early age to learn to do housework because there are many advantages that children can learn from housework. Nevertheless, there are some pros and cons when children help with household tasks since they are young, but I believe that the pros are more than the cons.
This weekend I had a pretty interesting journey. I decided to put my old grandmother`s house in order and make myself a weekend getaway. This healthy lifestyle has really grown on me and once I think of my old habits, I don`t want to come back. This weekend, next on my list, taking care of that small garden behind the house. I was so excited, my list counted numerous plants, but it didn`t even dawn on me that there are some “rules” to be followed, some policy that we need to respect.
Location, location, location. Distance is a huge thing to think about when trying to make your choice. On campus, you are always close to where you have to be. If you live close to the school you wish to attend, staying home would still be close and if you live with your parents you would not have to pay for housing. On the other hand, if you live 6 hours away from the school you want to go to then you could get a house or apartment near the school or live on campus.
As a twelve year old, I was often asked to babysit young children. Starting off caring for young family members quickly escalated to other babies and toddlers, which gave me an astounding sense of responsibility. My father is one of seven children, making my family rather large. I grew up surrounded by seventeen younger cousins, which immediately allowed me to experience how babies and young children act on a daily basis. Exposure to people who can not function fully on their own assisted me and built me into who I am today.
Growing up I was lucky enough to have nothing but positivity around me, may that be from my family, my friends, or the close knit community that I was a part of, but it all come together to create an uprising that I am proud to call my own. Although many of these aspects around me lead to who I am today as an individual, I would like to focus on my family and the effects it has had on me. I grew up in a big family with that family always being around the corner from me, which still didn’t stop me from bragging any time my grandpa would pick me up from kindergarten to anyone willing -or not- to listen. I grew up always sure of two things: one, every Saturday I would go grocery shopping with my grandpa and he’d tell me stories ranging from him peeing on a classmate of his, to his experience with World War II, and although I was too young to appreciate it then, now looking back on it I would not have traded those Saturdays for the world. The second certainty in my life was that I had a family that would always love and support me no matter what.
