Throughout history the North and South have always bumped heads when it came to slavery; the North saw slavery as a sin and the South did not see anything wrong with it because they grew up with slavery. Throughout the 1800’s slaves had little to no rights, it was not until the Celia Trial when the questioning of these rights came up. In June 23,1855, Celia had committed murder; she killed her Master Robert Newsom. Because of the crime that she had committed, this tested the laws placed on slaves in Missouri at the time. The policies that passed through affected Celia Trial, at the same time there were some policies that they could use in her advantage.

"Celia, A Slave" is a very controversial story of a young female slave who murdered her master then burned his body on June 23, 1855. This issue took place in Missouri during a period where Kansas has a debate whether the union is a free or slave state. Celia plays a big role in how society views this debate of slavery.

Shantel says she at peace with her decision to put her daughter’s up for adoption. The Mother, Shantel, and daughter Angelica, 17, and granddaughter, Gabriella, age two, live in a section 8 house. Section 8 is a program available to low- income families, who in turn receive significantly reduced rents.

On a cold sunny day, I got the news that would change my life. A couple weeks before a family vacation to Canada, my parents decided to have my blood drawn and tested for a disease, Celiac Disease, that makes you gluten intolerant. About halfway through that trip, in a large food court, loud and crowded, in a shopping mall, my mom got a call from the doctor’s office. When she picked up the phone, the doctor said that my test came abnormal and that they would have to take another blood sample. When they took the blood sample, for the second time, the results came back as abnormal. This time the doctors said that in order to make sure that I had the Celiac Disease they would need to preform a scope. The results of the scope determined that have celiac disease.
Mary Keane was a loving lady who had the dream to turn a mansion into a group home for lesbian girls because of their struggles they encountered. Although her dreams did not come true as there are not many lesbians in the foster care system, she still opened a group home to girls only. Mary fostered 11 kids and practiced “moral adoption’, which is committing to a child for life. She didn’t want to only help a child until the day they turn 18, but until they stop needing assistance. She said that many times after a foster child would move out after 18 they would soon regress and need someone’s help, but not receiving any help from the foster care agency or their old foster parents. Mary mainly focused on safety and praise and told her foster children that nobody would be kicked out, but they would work
She explains to me her home was filled with neglect and abuse. “My parents were heavily involved with drugs and alcohol throughout all of my young adult life. Through all of this, I got taken away from my parents and moved in with my Grandma and Grandpa. But because of all of the emotional stress and everything that was going on, I was awarded with a CASA.” Morgan told me her CASA was one of her favorite people; she got to know Morgan well and was able to make the right decision, letting Morgan live with her grandparents. Thirteen years later, Morgan and her younger brothers still live with their grandparents. She believes her CASA truly shaped the person she is today, “There is no way I would have been able to go to college, found a passion for helping children and no way I would of found a passion for education without my CASA. Without my CASA, I wouldn’t be the person I am.” I cannot imagine going through what Morgan did. However, it has made her become a stronger person. Evidently, CASA volunteers have made a large impact on many children, including a sorority sister of
