At times, we have put a rug on the ground near the water falls. We could relax, and enjoy the view, and eat breakfast and lunch. Also, we have taken a lot of pictures, so that we can share with our friends and families. Then we have seen all of the water falls in different location. Although we have worn jacket there, we have been swimming.
On Wednesday, my family went to the Pike in Huntington Beach, so my dad could play Pokemon Go and my sisters and I to ride our scooters. Then, on Thursday, my family went to Universal Studios.

This novel changed the way I perceive other religions, to explain, before this reading my thinking towards other religions was that my religion is the correct one and all the others are wrong, but I realize that serves no good to me and to other people if we all believe in
We no longer have freedom of speech in America out of fear of offending someone. These issues are not covered by the media so many people don’t believe that America is being censored. Many people are being fired or suspended because the words that were spoke by that person were to offensive for the other persons taste. Words are twisted by the media, and people are made out to be monsters all because of some words that were said, when really it’s just words. Paula dean was fired from the food industry because of something she said 30 years ago, Chick-Fil-A was boycotted because their views weren’t the same as others, Brendon Ike was fired because of a few words that he said on social media, it seems like everything that is said or done offends someone in some way.
This is because in the new government system, the Germans taught that the Jews were not people. Therefore, Jews did not deserve to be treated as such. This logic made no sense to Corrie and her family, in their heads the Jews were still people, and harming them was still a sin. Fully aware of the consequences, the Ten Booms determined that keeping the Jews safe was the honorable and honest thing to do. Therefore, the Ten Booms began to hide the Jews and live out a dishonest life.
Mom pourede him a cup of coffee and showed him his seat. He imediately forwarded his attention twards asking me, once again, what had happened the night of the accident. He sounded a lot more upset, unlike last time we both spoke together. "Well," I replied. "Me and Mary were driving to a party Saturday night.
Hughes getting up and lying shows the reader Hughes has lost faith and no longer believes in religion, as he resorted to lying. From these experiences, Hughes goes on to tell the reader “That night, for the first time in my life but one for I was a big boy twelve years old - I cried. I cried, in bed alone, and couldn 't stop.” (Hughes 187) Here, we can see how the events that occured that night impacted Hughes in a negative way that same night.
All-Star games like the one I went to are where a lot of girls will be first seen by coaches. When I was playing my game two college coaches had approached me about continuing on to tryout for their teams. I had kept in touch with both schools throughout the summer. From this experience I had the opportunity to go visit these schools. My parents and I had to drive to Kansas to tour the two campuses and to try out to see if they had really wanted me.
Me and a couple of friends spent the day running around town. They told me about all the drama at school. We had a fun day of shopping. I even got to meet some people who moved to town since I had left. His name was Johnnie, he played most of the sport at school.
I was also held back in first grade so i had to do it twice. the meds they gave me for my ADHD changed me i wouldnt talk, eat, or do anything i just wanted to be alone and that is what made me not like medicine or doctors. then from around 3rd grade until 7th grade my parents constantly argued
People of color who grow up in America believe that their race/culture is not important because they are ashamed of there culture. People of color try to hide who they really are to fit into other races. This relates to me, because I am arabic and not a lot of people like arabs because they think i am a terrorist and i am going to bomb them. Growing up in America as a boy of another race I sometimes feel I like i want to change my race and i feel ashamed that feel that way about my race/culture.
All the students at my school were born in America and they were not like me. They did not have an accent, and they did not look like me. I was afraid growing up that no one will accept me and that I will get made fun of because of my background. I would not invite my friends over to my house because I feared that they would make fun of me if they heard my parents speaking Arabic. When I would be out in public with my parents, I would try to force
In order to conceal their fears, many people try to take unnecessary precautions as a buffer from reality. As stated in the text “Jittery, uncertain, and assuming the worst, many people have answered these questions by forswearing air travel, purchasing gas masks and radiation detectors…” (Goode 1). To this day, many people refuse to get on a plane because they are scared of an unlikely event to occur. Even though security has been massively improved since the events that took place on September 11, the image of the trauma that took place will be forever engraved in the memories of America.
In Behind the Backlash: Muslim Americans After 9/11 the author states, “Arabs are caught between Census categories (where they appear as "white") and reality, between ‘us’ and ‘them.’ (Suhay136). Because of 9/11 many Arab/Muslim Americans are placed into another category, resulting in many Arab/Muslims feeling unwanted in their own lands even though they hold US passports. Often times the 9/11 attacks is said to have united the Americans, but many Muslim/Arab Americans who lived in the US for many years were not allowed to share the same grief many Americans did, but instead, many Muslim Americans were looked upon as terrorists
As a Pakistani-American Muslim woman, issues of identity, diaspora, and civil rights have dominated my mind since before I could even put a name to those concepts. Growing up in New Jersey after the September 11 attacks meant constantly seeing negative media about Islam, and seeing my increasingly stressed parents deal with discrimination at their workplaces. I was only six years old when the attacks occurred, but I remember the aftermath clearly; my parents’ friends were being interrogated by police for simply looking Muslim, news floated among the community that hijab-clad women were being physically or verbally abused by random people on the streets, and my older brother confided in my parents that he was being bullied at school for having a Muslim name and brown skin.
