During the Holocaust, many of the Jews have noticed that they have changed over time. As much as Jew’s wanted to speak for themselves, or even save others, this wasn’t possible due to their fear of winning them causing silence. In the Elie Wiesel’s memoir, Night, shows how Wiesel’s experience was during this harsh time in his life as a teenager. During this experience, Wiesel discovers how others, also including him, decided to remain silent as a result of their fear, causing some choices to be avoided and not made. To sum up, Wiesel’s experience portrays that fear always wins and causes others to be silent.
Core life values that I consider to be important, and why they are important to me: 1. Spiritual development: Religion is a huge part of my life, and it determines everything that I do, but I feel that my spiritual development within my religion is even more important because it shows that I am living out the beliefs of the doctrine. 2. Availability to spouse/significant other: I do not currently have a spouse or significant other, but if/when I do they will be one of the most important people in my life because I am family-oriented, so I will want to be around them. 3.
I can relate to having faith because I often put trust or confidence into someone or something when I’m having a struggle in my life. When I was younger I didn’t really know God. Once I found out about God, I immediately learned having faith in him is one of the most important decisions anyone can ever make. Once I made that decision to maintain my trust in him I noticed that many things started to fall my way. In the novel, Eliezar also questioned his faith several times but always turned back to putting his trust in God because he knew what was right.
Cultural Self-Assessment As a human services major, I have learned to explore more about myself. I have learned about my values, and my belief system; in addition, I have become aware of my biases, flaws, and my internalized stereotypes and prejudices. As I go along with each one of my human services classes, I begin to learn more about myself. However, there is one thing that has not changed since before I got into this major, and that is, that there is always hope for people. For me, hope doesn’t come from religion, it could come from those around us, and even from within ourselves.
I can enrich the diversity of Milligan 's campus community because I am already so diverse from the norm at Milligan College. To start off, I as a person am a complete combo of uniqueness and spunk. I can bring something different to Milligan because of my peculiar way of thinking and decision making. I set myself apart from those my age because I matured at a young age due to certain situations that I had to face as a child that most people never have to face in their entire lives. However, I could not be more thankful; God had a plan for me and because of the adversities that I experienced, I am a more determined and goal oriented individual.
Although her relationship with Max in the beginning of the book was rather awkward, soon her perspective towards Max soothes and their relationship bonds to a friendship. There are some times when Liesel’s actions were unbelievable, especially during the Jew parade. “ ‘ You have to let go of me Liesel.’ He even tried to push her away, but the girl was too strong.’” (511) The time of the Holocaust was hell-like for the Jews. Just because of their religion, they were harassed and and abused by the Germans in inhumane ways. However, Liesel was a girl who stood up for humanity and justice.
Do you know the Palestinian problem? Although I was quite indifferent to this problem, the scene I watched in a university class was so miserable that I realized we shouldn’t turn our head away from their harsh realities. Then I started to search about Palestine, and found Ali and Omar’s tragic story. Today, I’m standing here to talk about the Palestinian problem in some detail and think with you what we can do for them. Let me talk about the Palestinian problem briefly.
Walking around Sandcreek Middle School I often hear students saying phrases such as “That’s gay” referring to it as if it were another word for stupid, or calling each other “queer” and “faggot” as a way to address their friends. I am sick of it. It’s painful for those in the LGBTQ+ community to commonly hear something that they are being used as something that is stupid or worthless. I am not a member of the LGBTQ+ community, but it physically hurts me whenever I hear something like that being said. It makes me cringe everytime I hear it, knowing that those who are in the LGBTQ+ community feel even worse.
When I started teaching at an early college with a diverse population, my faith and belief in a higher power began to stretch. I encountered so many loving, kind, good people who held different religious views from me. I adored the process of growing and having my world view broaden. It was not long after this that my marriage started to disintegrate. I always believed that the people in my faith community were supposed to be my support system.
Laws were created against racism and yet opinions and stereotypes still remain. Even today people still treat others differently because of their differences that they cannot control. I agree that not all people might display a racist attitude. However numerous people still commit racist actions or make racist comments that can upset others around them, without even knowing it. Racism still exists to this day because of the lack of awareness, stereotyping, and because of the history behind it.

One of the most important values OLG has taught me is to accept everyone because we are all equal in God’s eyes.
There are many people with different views, backgrounds and heritage’s that need to be respected. We need to respect others and their things as well as they do ours. In the 1940’s, The Jewish people were treated very poorly for something they couldn’t even change. The Germans and Hitler wanted to create what they considered the “perfect race” . Most people did not show compassion towards the Jewish, and in turn allowed and witnessed such tragedies.
"If mommy and daddy do not like certain people, then I do not either." This is causing children to bully one another because others talk, look, and act differently. Discrimination comes from historical backgrounds. Also, racism has been accountable since America started. Some Americans hold grudges with the people who fought in wars against other
I also used to disrespect my family, but now I respect my parents, and their wishes. I personally have become a better person because of FCCLA. I take my education seriously, because before I used to blow off my education. Through FCCLA I’ve gotten so much different opportunities, that I’d be lost if I wasn’t apart of FCCLA. Also FCCLA has brought me lifelong friendships, I’ve met other people from other states, and I still do keep in touch with them, it’s also an encouragement or something to look forward to if I do qualify for Nationals.
My faith had always been something of true importance to me, including the morals and responsibilities that came along with it. Freshman year, I was not sure how my beliefs were going to be received. As it turned out, many people were accepting. However, others were confused, and some were simply mean. Through the years, my faith was present on the grounds of jokes, rude comments, and occasionally, hostility.
