That is in the form of a dinner, or spending a day at the beach. My hobbies aside from that, will include reading, and going to concerts or watching old concert footage on the internet from bands like Led Zeppelin, or The
In January of 1945 a group of US pow’s (prisoners of war) were trapped by the Nazi’s in Stalag IXA POW camp near Ziegenhain Germany. Master Sgt. Roddie Edmonds had a gun held to his because he did not turn over his Jewish American soldiers. Instead the whole group of over 1,000 POWs was standing in unity and going against orders. The Nazi threatened to shoot Edmonds, but he calmly responded that giving over the religion of his soldier is against the Geneva Convention. Edmonds continued on to say that if he was shot all of his soldiers must be shot and then the Nazi’s doing so would be put on trial after the war and would face fatal consequences.

Anthony Elonis should not be protected under the first amendment. He has the right to express himself, but he did not have the right to express himself as he did online. Writer Amy Howe stated regarding Anthony’s rights under the first amendment that Elonis’ “right[s] [are] not unlimited; the classical example is that you can’t shout “Fire!” in a crowded theatre when there is actually no fire, because the resulting chaos could lead to injuries or even death” (Howe 1). Meaning that one can express themselves,however, it should not be an expression that could potentially cause harm or even death. One may say that in this situation that example does not apply to Elonis as he was not in any theater or crowded area. In contrast, Elonis was in a

After four years living with my father, my mother decided to move her and me to America. This was due to the conflict present within the family, which details are unknown to me because of my age, as well as to ensure a beneficial education, leading to vast opportunities for her children and allow my mother to return to college to receive her bachelor’s and master’s degree. During the months after our departure, my father stayed in contact through weekly phone calls. After my sister’s birth, we returned to Jamaica. Again, after a shorter time period, we returned to America as the problems had risen again. Succeeding the time of our final departure from Jamaica, contact from my father has dwindled to an occasional text message on mine, or my sister’s birthday each year. In July of 2009, after months of preparation, my father came to stay with us for one week and then returned to Jamaica. Since July of 2009, I have had no physical/facial interaction with my noncustodial parent and the contact that I do receive is through passed along messages from my Aunts who travel from America to Jamaica. My mother has raised three kids: my sister, myself, and my brother; without paternal nor federal aid.

Elodea will only survive when grown below the water's surface. When left out of water, elodea will shrivel up and die. Its small white flowers are the only part of the plant that will flourish out of water, and these emerge in late summer. Elodea spreads and propagates when portions of the stem break away from the parent plant and form new plants .
