Her actions in prison have only reflected a great deal of trauma she has gone through in her abusive marriage. In her ten years in prison, she has been on her best behaviour, she goes to the workshop every day and she sits quietly sewing all day long. Mr President please take heed of the difference in physical strength between the late Mr Simon and Elsie.

This hypothetical is silently creeping into our reality today, as the current societal machine quietly disallows many once open paths
Julia Young English 1010 Larson, P.3 Personal Narrative The professional boxer Muhammad Ali once said, “I hated every minute of training, but i said ‘Don’t quit. Suffer now and live the rest of your life a champion.’ ” This quote became relatable the moment I looked back on the start of my cheerleading “career”.
