Was Jane long really the mother of Texas?I think not . It all started on july 23 1798 , when Jane Herbert wilkinson was born. When Jane was born the doctors thought that she was dead and then proceeded to shoved her in a night stand drawer while they saved her mother's life.When the doctors opened the nightstand drawer they discovered Jane Herbert Wilkinson alive and well. Jane was the tenth child in her family.Sadly,Jane’s father died when jane was only one years old .Jane later became an orphan at the age of fourteen. After jane's mom died she moved in with her aunt .Jane’s family was very wealthy, so wealthy that Jane got her own slave named Kian , they were really good friends and when Jane was sixteen she was on her way to school and Kian told her about a very handsome man that was a doctor and persuaded her to skip school and meet him ,she then proceeded to introduced her to James long ,her future husband. Jane later got married to James long in may of 1815 and had her first child when she was only eighteen years old .In September of 1821 jane was expecting her second child and stayed behind at a post while james,her husband left ,she vowed to not leave till he returned but , he never did. She had her child in a very harsh winter,on the Bolivar peninsula in december of 1821.

It seems as if you can take a lot of people in your life for granted, not really acknowledging all the things they have done for you and others. In a lot of cases, mainly for kids, it seems that your grandmother always has just been there for you, never truly realizing what they have done for everyone. Heck, without her I wouldn’t even exist. The Measure of a human being is shown by true love for others and themselves, and that

“There is a fascination with the idea that one has 'seen someone else do something' before one can achieve it. Maybe that's true in some cases, but clearly it is not a requirement. I knew what I wanted to do.”-Mae C. Jemison. When the space shuttle Endeavour blasted off on
Hi Roolchane, I really enjoyed reading about your grandma. I too understand the love and respect that you cherish for her. I hope my grandpa and grandma live to 94 years or more. I too believe that it’s unfair for younger generations to forget about our elderly people. I sometimes repeat and emphasis on this so much because I have seen some assisted living homes where the elderly people are so sad that you can see in their face the desperation to talk or be love by someone. Defending the rights that elderly people have is sometimes misunderstood and completely taken advantage. It’s sad to see how many children do this to their family members. I couldn’t forget about my grandpa and grandma they play a big role in the women that I am today.

I have learned a lot about Kris’s sharing his life of being LGBT member, and it was first time to meet in person who’s member of LGBT group. Kris talked about a lot of challenges and discriminations that LGBT people face, not only other people but their own families. I think discriminations against LGBT people won’t make us or them better, everyone wanted to love and loved for what they are or believe, if that’s what they say they are let them be. I think is very hard to feel unwelcome in your family, schools, jobs and many more places. I am Muslim and I believe god don’t make no mistakes, but we humans make mistakes and we shouldn’t be judging each other. A lot of people disagree about their different beliefs, but at the same time they respect

Of course you always hear people talking about how great their grandmother or grandfather are, I too feel the same way about my grandmother. I see her as more than my grandmother, she’s a role mole, my best friend and also like a sister when I need her. She’s always been a loving and caring person. Not for only her friends and family, but also strangers. People she has never met a day in her life she would be willing to go give her last too. You don’t find to many people like her too often.
