So naturally once the disease had you for a week you wanted anything that would satisfy you… and there was plenty humans. The virus stayed with you for five months in that state and then you just… burnt out and died. After one year of this insanity the world was hopeless about finding a cure, all the resources went to protecting the last of the people and the orphans. Schools were built to house the overwhelming amount of orphans. My friends and I was supposed to go to them but we stayed at my house instead.
There is no glamor to war, and thanks to the war our entire generation will be wiped out very soon. The life at the front is terrible. It’s been a month since I have been here but it didn’t take much to realize the difference between our training they gave us and the actual war we had to fight. Within the first week I could tell that the training we received wasn’t anywhere close to enough. The training center never prepared us for the continuous bombing, the continuous rattles of the ground, and definitely not the continuous fear we experience every moment and every second we’re here.
“Well, what do you think?” It was the fall of my sophomore year, and I was straining to hear my friend describe a new club that she had heard about on the announcements as students whizzed past us in the hallway. She said that it was called Mini-THON, a smaller version of Penn State’s THON, which is a weekend where students dance non-stop to raise money for pediatric cancer research. I hadn’t heard of THON before, but I was incredibly moved by the cause and asked her to text me any more information that she heard about it before we said our goodbyes and sprinted off to class.

After reading “Journey,” by Tiara Anderson in the first issue of Red Rising Education magazine, I understood that there is an array of various conflicts Indigenous men and women have to tolerate on a daily basis. Anderson discusses many topics in her poem including stereotypes, self-hatred and the missing and murdered Indigenous women. She is now in her senior year of high school and a mentor in a girls program called “Nodoka girls.” Anderson initially wrote this poem when she was twelve years old though, but this poem 's revised over the years. Five years later, at the age of seventeen (Anderson, 2017, pg. 13), she finally mustered up the courage to share it with the world.

My future started at eight year old. It may be hard to believe that signing up for a summer class could be an experience that changed the course of my life, but my life changed all because of my mom trying to find me something to do the summer after third grade. This past July, I turned 17. With that birthday came not only the ability to see R-rated movies (a privilege I couldn’t wait to have) but also an anniversary of sorts for an important date in my life. I was eight years old when I was in my first theatrical production, and since then I’ve been in multiple shows, spent hours watching performances, and taken countless workshops and classes.
Everyone has something so important to them that they are willing to sacrifice anything for. One eighth-grader strives to get her school’s traditional Veterans Day Ceremony back. Thirteen year old, Katelyn Kurovski found out three weeks ago that her school, Monticello Trails Middle School, might not be doing their traditional Veterans Day Ceremony for 2017. During class on October 30th, her teacher’s phone rang, and the principal of another school asked when their school was celebrating Veterans Day. The class broke out in questions when they overheard the teacher say that they had not seen anything on the calendar for Veterans Day.
I will be pursing nursing next year at the University of Northern Colorado. I plan on minoring in Spanish and Biology before applying to the Nursing Program.

At the Smithfield Court Community Center on Sept. 30 the Smithfield Court/ Elyton Walk club acknowledged Miles College senior social work major Tiffany Taylor who was presented a $5,802 scholarship from the Housing Authority Birmingham District. Taylor decided at an early age that she wanted to further her education. She has seen many people from her neighborhood lose their lives from being in the streets and didn 't want to be another statistic. Miles College was her first choice because it is a Historically Black College and University. "To further my education at a HBCU means that I am receiving the best education by teachers who look just like me."
The Audition I remember the exact day when I made the Rummel/Chapelle Band. I was feeling so nervous for my audition because I did not know if I was going to make the band. One reason why I tried out for the band was because my sister was in the band for four years and I wanted to follow in her footsteps. Also, I tried out because I love playing the baritone and I have been in band since I was in fourth grade. When I first walked into the band room I got so nervous, because I was hearing other people warming up and I was afraid I was not going to make the band.
In the fourth grade at what was then Millville, Harriet encountered a teacher who she describes as “mean spirited.” During this same year, Harriet’s mother was diagnosed with cancer. As a fourth grader, Harriet would spend her lunch breaks running the two-mile trek from Millville to her home so that she could care for her Mother while her Father worked. “If I wasn’t on the front steps of the school and in line with my class by the time lunch ended, she would consider me late,” Harriet said, grinning at the childhood memory, “most of the time the other kids would hold the line for me trying to
