As you can see I have learned many things through 4-H that I may have never learned if it weren’t for this amazing program. I would not be the person I am today without 4-H. 4-H is my life (I am a “4-H Nerd” as Mrs. Kindra says). 4-H is not just a club or program but a family, a family that will always be there for me. 4-H is a place where I am free to be myself.
The story “Into the Gorge” by Ron Rash was my favorite story in the text. The story provided setting that sustained the mood of mystery. It started with narrating the story of Jesse’s aunt and her mysterious death. Then, the story took place in the woods. The description of how Jesse interacted with the land conveyed his relationship to his father.

People should read it because not only is it informative but relatable in some aspects. The theme of family and love universal, anyone can relate to it. Everybody has somebody that they continue to fight for, someone who is their everything and they’ll do anything for because that’s how much they love them. Ishmael’s story explores that, how his family kept him going. His story also informs those who are less knowledgeable in the history of Sierra Leone.
The topic this past week that will be most beneficial to my ministry is the session with Commissioner Fred Ruth. Commissioner Ruth’s officership was more than a wonderful story; it was account of life that put pride aside, was completely available, and of someone who was fully obedient to his calling. There were many points made by Commissioner Ruth that I will consider for my ministry as an officer. The first point made was that “one would never know the impact that we can make, if we make ourselves available.”

With the use of the Great Gatsby, F. Scott Fitzgerald is saying people should not be afraid to pursue their dreams and try to obtain what they want in life. It doesn’t matter what your background is or how difficult that goal may seem. The goal you have can be possible if you have the courage to pursue it.

The Great Gatsby is a really well known book, and this story took place in the 1920s(Also known as The Jazz age and The Roaring Twenties).

The fragrant white flowers, just starting to bloom, carry her to another place and time. I have seen this faraway look in her eyes before. When she is there, in that other place, it is best not to disturb her.
