Servitude is something that is incredibly close to my heart and this week was the perfect introduction to all that the UA Honors College has to offer to help find ways to leave my mark. Coming into this week, we were just a large group of kids from every corner of the country – joined only by our desire to serve and our love for the University of Alabama. But, in just a few short days, we became a community of thinkers, leaders, and dreamers who formed bonds that will last throughout these next few years and beyond.

The main groups that most can be categorized into are the wealthy, the common people, the Indians and the Chinese. Starting with the wealthy they looked at the west as a big fat paycheck, the wealth folks went out west and bought up lots of land and production and monopolized, while the common people competed with these big companies for free and cheap land because they were the poor back east and came out west with hopes of finding gold while mining or getting rich off abundant crop land or maybe it was some common women who came out west because they were allowed to purchase land out west. The Indians were native to the west and after immigration started some of the bigger tribes fought back but most tribes were too small and were forced by the American
LAPD Cadet: In the course of being an L.A.P.D Cadet, I have acquired the rank Corporal. This rank consists of teaching recruits the fundamentals of the program and the 3 D 's (dedication, determination, and discipline).

About two months ago, I found myself in a situation that I once believed was a distant and seemingly unachievable goal. I was at my own Eagle Scout award ceremony and I honestly could not believe that I had finally accomplished what only six percent of all Scouts do.

This contemplation slowly progressed into a reflection of my entire involvement in the Boy Scouts of America.

The issue of the Iraq war is still one of the most controversial wars that the United States has ever led. Before the 9/11 attacks, the United States starting a war against Iraq, would have been highly unlikely. In 2003, the United States backed by the United Kingdom, decided to invade Iraq. One of the main reasons that led to this decision was the fact that Iraq was thought to have weapons of mass destruction, which would pose a threat both to the United States of America and, by extension, to the west. Here we are, 14 years later, and the war has had major effects on world politics. In our current time, knowing that no weapons of mass destruction were found in Iraq, what were the motivations that led the United States government to start a war in Iraq? Was it a war of necessity? Or were there other motivations behind the invasion? In my presentation, I will attempt to explain the
