Tornado Warning: What are we really afraid of? Many people fear change that they usually want stability and comfort. However, they can be harmful in some ways. In Amy Wright’s poem “Tornado Warning,” she describes how the people in the village are getting isolated not only by the tornado but also by their attitude. The tornado figuratively represents immigrants and their culture, which the people are afraid of.
Because once we accept Jesus in our lives as our Lord and Saviour we try and imitate Him. He is our friend and companion for life but when we sin, sin separates us from him. This does not mean that we do not qualify for eternal life but we do not want to live a life without Jesus by our side. People who are friends with each other do not do opposite things but try and copy from each other. We need to copy how Jesus lived; He was pushed many times by wrong teachers and Pharisees but His self-control was just amazing.
Here, David says the Lord is light and He is salvation which means He guides and provides deliverance. God will guide you with His word and he will answer all your tribulations. God also adds joy to people’s lives. “The LORD is the stronghold of my life,” He provides with a source of strength to overcome difficult times in your life. Furthermore, He will show you the right path to take when you’re facing troubles in your life.
This related to many people of the time because many were searching for ways to take their mind of the seriousness of the time. While Ignatow turned to poetry, some turned to reading his poems as an outlet from the struggles of their lives. In Ignatow’s earlier years, he mainly focused on the “evils of business and having to earn a living” (Smith). Many critics assume this hatred in the beginning of his career stemmed from his childhood experiences. As explained by himself in an interview, Ignatow’s childhood was dominated by his “parents’ anxieties about the family business” (“David Ignatow”).

Since the fall of Adam and Eve to temptation, suffering has been a prevalent concept in our faith that humans have tried repeatedly to understand. Even though suffering sometimes causes us to question the power of God, it is a crucial means to which we grow into stronger individuals. I believe we can reconcile faith and suffering because suffering strengthens our relationship with God, everything happens for a reason, and sufferings draws us closer to others. Suffering is a difficult yet important part of our faith because it strengthens our relationship with God. In Job 1, we meet a righteous man named Job who worships God daily.

Qualities shown were very serious and religious to achieve a well functioning society. George Washington’s Rules of Civility were also serious and showed that people must show the qualities of honesty, respectfulness, and self discipline.

Clarkston became home for many of refugees all over the world. Clarkston being stuck in its southern ways, many residents raised in Clarkston felt that the refugees changed its community, and some others accommodated to the new sudden change.

Everything I learned there was gone. I felt like I entered into a new world with much curiosity. Jenny Longfellow: I know this is frustrating and when we feel helpless and out of control in situations, especially when they involve our loved ones, we get angry and don’t know what to do. When we start to understand who God really is by reading his word, we start to understand why we are here, and who we are living for...not ourselves but Him. This all makes sense.
