I walked into the classroom and started setting down chairs and wiping down tables. Ms. Justine was getting excited pulling out the children’s shirt that they had tie died the day before. Ms. Alyssa liked the shirts. Lucy F. came in first and Ms. Justine said “Lucy F. what do you think should I give you your shirts now or later today?” Lucy F. said “I think you should give them now.” Ms. Justine gave Lucy F. and Lucy F.’s mother their shirts as they held them up and looked at them. Lucy F. said “It’s so pretty.” Chase came in and asked to see his shirt and then Manaf, Lucy B., and Assel all came in and asked to see their shirts. Mr. Scott went out and got the rest of the class including Lucas, Jason, Ryker, and Jacob. I asked Lucas what he had
Aunt Mary did not say a word but understood everything. I lay Lily down and sat beside her for what seemed like an eternity. But I knew it was time to go, I brushed the hair of her face and placed a kiss on her forehead and headed out.
“Okay,” Grandma said quietly. “Sit next to me, and I’ll read you a bedtime story.” Amira crawled up and sat down beside Grandma. There was plenty of room in the cozy old chair. Grandma read a story about a girl and her playful pet cat. Sara sat on the rug and listened. “It’s time for
When thinking in the terms of marriage and one’s partner, the words that come to my mind are compassion, love, tenderness, trust, and devotion. It’s truly amazing to see someone who has endured such tragedy in their life, who has suffered pain, fear, and betrayal by the hands of the one person who should have shown just the opposite. Little did I realize that the woman who would be my instructor for two college courses I had taken would be such an inspiration to me.
The support of the family is the most positive aspect of family life. The rise of single parent homes has produced a negative change in family life stating that single mothers are too often bearing the burden of raising
I was sitting in the back of the taxi in Ukraine. The car moved and I began to see the one I love fade into the gray night fog. I will never forget the feeling I had during that moment. Like something was being ripped from my heart - a moment of great despair as I leave both my family and my country.

After 13 years at a private, Christian school, walking onto campus each morning begins to feel like stepping in front of the camera with a mugshot placard reading, “Queer, Agnostic Socialist. Approach with Caution, Attack on Sight.” I’ve worn the sign proudly, refused to cover it up or put it away and even shoved it in peoples’ faces as a sort of challenge. As a boy twice my size confronts me in the doorway to class, I only turn my rainbow-painted cheek. Homophobic teacher? I’ll write and sign him a letter even after he’s gone. Rude questions about my identity slinging through the halls, and I’ll answer with a challenging smile.
“What the hell did you two do this time.” She Shook her head from side to side. Her head dropped to the side, a frown forming on her lips. “I can’t believe I put up with you guys.” She lifted her hand to her nose, pinched the bridge of her nose and uttered out a sigh. She took in a deep breath, exhaling it slowly. She took one step closer to the two men, her head tilting to the side. “Show me the damage you have done.” She stated in a calm voice, but deep down inside her annoyance level for the two was starting to
On a rather dreary Sunday afternoon, I had the pleasure of interviewing Alex, an RA in Haaland Hall, about her experiences as and RA and her thoughts on leadership. Alex was a little tired, but still chipper after staying up the previous night for weekend hall duties, which included rounds at 2:00 AM. Alex has been an RA for two years, previously in Christensen Hall and now in Haaland Hall, so she was able to offer me a wealth of advice based on years of experience.
“Come on in,” Aunt Sarah yells, “Hello, it seems like it has been forever. I have missed you.” She darts over to Sally like a lightning bolt, to give her a giant hug, ”Now I know you just arrived, but it is late, so time for bed.”
“Macey would you like some tea?” I yell to my daughter in law. “Yes i would really like that please and thank you.” I pour water into the kettle and i slowly wait for the water to boil. As i wait i take a glimpse at my beautiful grandchildren as i see them play, John then tells me with his sweet angel voice, “grandma i wish we
Mai was the last to arrive; she always was, putting off leaving the lonely chill of her own small apartment at the heart of the city to the very last minute. She flashed an apologetic smile to the group as she flipped the kitchen chair around and slid into her seat, her arms folded against the backrest, her chin resting on her hands. It was strange, seeing the team in such an informal setting. Surreal in a way that made her heart thud rapidly against her chest, and her stomach twist uncomfortably. Here in Robin’s cabin it was less like they were strangers fighting for the same battle. It was almost domestic, with the siblings curled together on the couch, and Wendy draped easily in the overstuffed chair, like they were an actual team.
My alarm clock yet again pierces my eardrum.I pick it up and throw it on the floor making it bounce all over.Since I usually take forever in the morning I go in my closest put on a basketball Jersey my New York Yankees hat and my converse.I then walk out and go to the bathroom to brush my teeth.I am so hungry so
