My sister and I were laying on my grandma’s floor watching, it was so exciting. I could tell how proud my grandparents and my mom was of me. The next day, Friday, we left for New Jersey. On our way, we stopped at a gas station in Grand Rapids, and the cashier asked my aunt Kathy if I was the girl that was on the news. To get to New Jersey, it took about 12 hours.
Little Rock’s Nine biggest supernatural force was racism. Every day the students were faced with violence, people would throw stones at them, sometimes white students would knock them out. Police officers from Arkansas who acted as escorts would do little to protect the nine students against angry mobs. As well Little Rock Nine had good forces, as Elizabeth sat on a bench surrounded by white mobs, an educator reporter who told her “Don’t let them see you cry” (Fitzgerald 13) and a white woman who screamed at the crowd to “leave the child alone and stop tormenting her” (Fitzgerald 13) sat at each side of Elizabeth to offer her comfort and protection. Similarly, an epic event has villains.

Again, going ten over the speed limit so Kendall does not have to freak out about me anymore. As soon as I pulled into her driveway, I called her and told her to come outside. Then I pulled out her favorite smoothie, and gave her a huge hug. I could tell she adored what I did, because she held me so close and tight. We hung out at her house for the est of the day, playing video games and watching movies in her living room, on her couch.
One day, a new kid comes to his school, a girl named Keiko Okabe. She 's Japanese American and right away they became best friends. Henry even takes her to the Black Elks Club to listen to his friend Sheldon play the sax, and afterward they buy the record of the live show.

That means Keiko and her folks will be sent to those camps.
I’m super excited that Elizabeth is picking me, the super sparkly silver high heel with her simple baby blue dress since she is having another girl's day! Elizabeth and her friends are going to see the new movie called Beach Blanket Bingo. When we all arrived at the theater, we need to stand outside in a long line.It was a beautiful Saturday spring evening with the joyful sound of children play, adults murmuring amongst themselves, and cars going by the smell of wonder flowers blooming and the buttery popping popcorn from inside, although I could hear the sirens from emergency vehicles in the background. We were at to the ticket booth and hand the gentleman our money for our tickets and said thank you. We walked inside and headed over to
Already I was expecting to have a good day and not have no one or nothing ruin it. The bell rang to start the day we all headed into class, 30 minutes didn’t even pass yet and Mr. Hart walks through the door asking everyone who were out of uniform to leave the classroom and get a dress code violation guiding half of the class to the hallway . My classmates and I faces were filled with confusion; Monica then decides to ask why we needed to get a dress code violation ,he explains that we didn’t have the right to be out of uniform just because today was a holiday. All of us were still confused but also totally in rage, as he continued to give us his lecture, Samantha stopped him in his lecture about
When I was walking the streets to my first St. Louis Pride event, I felt extremely warm and safe inside. Almost everywhere I looked I would see rainbow flags or rainbow shirts and smile to myself. Looking around, I could tell everyone felt comfortable enough to be themselves here. I didn’t know what outfit would be acceptable at Pride so I dressed in a flower corn, a blue button up with palm trees on it, and rainbow suspenders. My mom and I chose a shady place under a tree to watch the three hour parade in the heat.
It was a warm fall day in Illinois, my mom and dad thought it would be a good night for a date. My mom called up “Aunt” Janie at the farm and asked if it would be okay if we came there while they went. I sat at the counter listening to the phone ring and ring and finally she answered and said that it would be great if the clan would come out. We were all so excited because a day at the farm was the most exciting event that happened a lot of the time. We all hopped into the van with our jackets, rubber boots, and many other things that would help us be fit to get all dirty and have fun.
Darting through the long, bright hallway, I laughed outrageously with my friends while trying to get to the noisy, yellow buses. It was April __ and the students at Southern Nash Middle were finally being released from all classes. Everyone was extremely ecstatic because we out for a week for spring break. As we loaded upon the bus, everyone jumped in their seats and began talking about their plans for the week. I talked to my friends who sat across from me and listened to them talk on and on.
