Killingham Adult Development & Life Assessment OM301 Professor Cheryl Sullivan August 23, 2016 OM301 Final Summary Paper Life is what you make it as we go through life’s journey.

Within the ever-changing landscape of the Middle Eastern Region, Syria is consistently in the news due to its strategic location and the present set of local and global problems. Located in the northwest portion of the Middle East, Syria is bordered by Turkey to the north, the Mediterranean Sea to the west, Jordan to the south, and Israel to the southwest.

The basis for this war and the conflicts within it have also had a large effect at the global level.
In 2011, a few years prior to the bombing of the Temple of Baalshamin, Syria officially became a country plagued by continuous conflict. A civil uprising began against the government of the country and started what is now known as the Syrian Civil War.

Gender Differences When each of us was in our mother's womb and shortly after we were conceived we did not have anything or anyone influencing the way we acted. After birth within a couple of months, although we do not remember but we can observe, our fathers and mothers were bearing an influence on our lives. While we were growing up and still to this day our surroundings influenced the way we think and behaved in our daily lives.

These differences and similarities take on different characteristics some are more subtle and some are very out right noticeable.

For almost a decade Syria has not enjoyed peace. The war in Syria has polarized countries in the Middle East, Europe and the America. The war has led to countries taking sides depending on the interests of their leaders and the country as a whole. In the process countries from Europe, America and Asia have entered into a union that they deem fit to promote their agendas (G. Friedman 2017). This union is what is now known as the axis 1 geopolitics. Even though the countries may have different individual agendas they have common goals as a group.
