Forcing a religion onto another is stripping them of their own freedom of religion. Not to mention the state of the prisons were not amazing in the slightest. The education reformation had potential, but
Elie Wiesel’s Night should not be banned from the book list for ninth grade because it is a book that teaches very important lessons despite the fact that it contains violent scenes. The book shows that we should treat people in a good way even if they are not like us. It reveals the horrible consequences of inhumanity, the meaningless suffering and unbearable pain of innocent people. These reasons show that the book is very important for the grown-ups because it deals with fundamental questions about humanity and moral values. This book should not be banned even though it portrays so many violent moments because it shows us the horrible reality of racial prejudice and discrimination.
In the book Abduction by Peg Kehret, Ruth is one of the characters, and is remembering her old dog Max. She is having these memories since she now has a new dog, and is taking care of him. This is creates a mood since Ruth loved her old dog and is grateful to have another one. The mood that is being created is excitement.

The church decided to host this event after learning from the “Tim Tebow foundation” how important this event was for the children. The church has had numerous volunteers willing to help, all because of what the cause is for.

Tradition is defined by the Merriam Webster Dictionary as “an inherited, established, or customary pattern of thought, action, or behavior (such as a religious practice or a social custom)”. The role of tradition plays an important part in Pearl S. Buck’s The Good Earth as the characters live their life around the customs. It especially shapes Wang Lung’s life as he followed certain practices, but defied others that he did not feel were so important to him. This influenced the way he related to his father and uncle and it played a part in his daily life. He tried to stick to his family rituals of working on the land, wearing a braid, and respecting his elders.

During my time there, I learned not to take for granted the little things in life, such as a place to live and the materialistic things I possess. I can apply this experience to my life by being thankful for the little things in life I do have and for my home that shelters me every day of my life. Something I would’ve liked to learn more about would be how else the tools are used and how my friend’s family could’ve been better prepared for the hurricane. The knowledge I would like to share with my peers or my community would be to aid others when support is needed no matter your opinion about that individual and be grateful for the things and people you do have in your life. Lastly, if I had the opportunity to do the project once more I would have changed my negative attitude towards helping my friends and would try to be more prepared to work those long hours helping
When looking at my family, and the history of what has shaped my life, the main even that I can identify is having my son Hayden out of wedlock. This effected not only in a positive but somewhat of a negative way as well. Even though in our present time, children out of wedlock is not uncommon; However, many people such as the older generations still believe that you should be married before you have children. Some of the issues I encountered changed me and the outlook I have now. There were also positive lessons learned from this experience as well.
How should we confront injustice? Listen to the words that explain how Jesus confronted injustice. You can give up your bitterness and maintain your sense of justice at the same time. When Jesus was being persecuted, He knew that God would judge justly at the right time and in His perfect way. Jesus said: “I have so much faith in God that I can forgive and live without bitterness.” God says to you and to me this morning: ‘I will take care of the justice issue; you need to be free from bitterness.” Ironically, withholding forgiveness usually inflicts more pain on the one who needs to forgive than on the one who needs to be forgiven.

I believe that I am qualified for this scholarship because of how much I have grown at Wendell Baptist Church. It has helped me grow in my walk with God through missions and through serving.

Wendell Baptist Church has also shown me just how great my life is and how the problems I think I have are actually not that big of a deal in the long run.
The Navajos have a strong family support system that is essential in improving their health status. It is encouraging to see other family members caring for the sick because we lack that aspect in today’s society. Family involvement within the Navajo culture might be something that we need to intergrade in our society. The Navajos extended family focuses on helping one another grow, collaborate on resources and contribute in daily life occurrences (Giger & Davidhizar, 2013). I think that with Mary Littlejohn’s family support, she will be able to maintain her pregnancy and deliver with few complications.
What I will remember about this documents are that fact that to be able to stop slavery a lot of people need to risk their lives. It took persistent and courage for Abraham Lincoln to pursue this law. Slavery is never a good thing to discuss, but we have too. We need to educate ourselves from our past to help us not to make the same mistakes again. Tom’s life was about his faith and how he conquered obstacles in his life because of his will power.

Islam teaches that only God decides whether or not a person shall live, and that suffering may be beneficial as it helps one test their faith (Aramesh and
