Giving care to older parents is considered a natural duty of children. According to Buddhist belief, karma is always a part of life. Children will have good or bad fruits for what they do to their parents. Growing in this context, I always take culture and religious beliefs into accounts whenever I try to understand a social problem. In addition to the identity of a Vietnamese, I also hold different
We can look to Antigone and partake in civil disobedience in order to make a movement to prompt change for the better in our world today. Today we are all called to enact on our own civil disobedience when we are faced with injustice and unfair laws, we are called to make a stand and a declaration to stand up for what we believe
2. Development of Pure Land Buddhism The idea of Pure Land Buddhism was raised in China and then spread to other countries, such as Japan and East Asia. (Wallace 2002, 43) It became famous in these countries but there are variations between the ideas. Take Indian and China as examples, Indian think that there would be separate life after rebirth as their present life may be suffering and the life after death should be happy and not connected to the present life. On the other hand, Chinese take rebirth as the continuation of life before death, which the human relations in the present life are connected to the life in Pure Land.
‘You’re sending us away, aren’t you?’”, and her father states how he and her mother are doing this for the kids own good.

When I struggle with these to enemies, they keep me from becoming what God called me to be. The resource I would say, I learned in this workshop is that I must fight for my life to be all that God created me to be. I must fight the enemy of negative thoughts and negative environments.

She would give away her clothes, her toys, her food, anything. These attributes come along with anyone who is naturally loving and giving towards other people. As can be seen, especially from the sacrifice she chooses to make, Patria is loving and giving towards others. Had she not have been born this way, her family would have most likely been killed, leaving her alone. It also takes bravery to make such a decision, giving yourself up to an oppressive ruler so that your family could live.
In these times it is still logical to believe that civil disobedience is the right course of action. Activists, wanting to make a change, have called for government reconsideration, health and safety issues, and discrimination on Native Americans. Thoreau believed that rebelling against the government was good as long as it slowed the “machine”. This can be seen in his essay when he states “...I say, break the law. Let your life be a counter friction to stop the machine,” (Thoreau, 946) which can be seen as controversial.
I believe that in society we need to put our families first because our society will only Prosper once we have arranged for our families to prosper. In Virgil's Aeneid the trend continues the gods and goddesses would receive punishment if they got too overconfident no matter who they pray to or what they did they ended up reaping what they sowed and I think that if we're not careful we'll end up doing the same

Based on my beliefs stealing is a sin and it will shorten your days on earth but under these circumstance I would have no choice but to do anything I can to provide for my child.

It is up to me as a mother to do anything to keep my child alive and healthy. A mother 's job is to do anything in their hands to help their children.
INTRO: Air pollution is a worldwide human health risk that affects people of all social classes. The most polluted cities can be found in developed countries such as the United States, China, and the UK. Although air pollution can be the result of natural phenomena such as volcanoes and storms, much of today’s issues stem from anthropogenic i.e. human, causes. Houston, Texas is one of the largest cities in the United States and, unfortunately, the quality of their atmosphere reflects the city’s expansive area, many shipping ports, chemical plants, and high traffic.
What is causing global warming? Most scientists agree that humans are the main cause of our current global warming movement. We can see by this small bit of information, that we too are contributing to the massive storms that cause much havoc in our
