It is inevitable that we will all die it is a fact that everyone must come to terms with. There comes a time in everyone’s life that they must face death; a friend’s tragic accident, a family member’s passing or their own battles with diseases. When faced with the idea of death people will act in different ways some may find it therapeutic to apologize for the negative they have done, some may want to spend time with loved ones to ease the future pain, and others may decide that their life was not what they believed. The story Death Constant Beyond Love tells us about a man named Senator Sanchez who is living a happy life with his wife and five kids. That is until he is told by doctors that he only has a short time to live. Death is
A hero can teach many life lessons, morals and various other things. A hero is someone who can be seen as a role model or hope to people. A view of a hero is different to everyone. A hero can save someone from a fire, they can be there to give support or even enlighten people. My heroes may differ from another person writing this same paper. The title hero is given to people for multiple reasons.
Good morning brother and sister, I pray all is well with each of you as we continue this series on the children of Israel... we hope if the spirit allows us to end this series this week... When God give you instruction to do something, don’t be greedy, don’t ask tons of questions, and most of all don’t be too lazy and don’t do it...
“Right this way,” the nurse ahead of me was prompting me to a brightly lit hall that was completely foreign to me. I couldn’t help but be terrified by the sights and sounds around me: people chattering, machines methodically beeping, gurneys rushing past. It was my first time in a hospital and my eyes frantically searched each room looking for any trace of my father. She stopped suddenly and I turned to the bed in front of me but I could not comprehend what I saw. At such a young age, I idolized my father; I had never seen him so vulnerable. Seeing him laying in a hospital bed unconscious, surrounded by wires and tubes was like witnessing Superman encounter kryptonite. My dad’s car accident not only made him a quadriplegic, but also crippled
Mankind had believed themselves to have escaped the horrors that preyed on them in bygone ages. Perhaps they were right. Mostly. The torch of scientific progress kindles by newton and his companions spread like wildfire over the centuries that followed, and drove the beasts that dwelt in our shadows scampering back into the darkened pits that had spawned them; turning the hunter into the hunted. Physics, the idea that our world operates through universal laws, defeated the ancient magics that had once left Kings and nobles alike shivering in the all concealing night. Darwin and his concept of evolution banished the ancient monsters with such speed and ferocity that even hercules himself would have been envious. But there are still places in our world where the light of modern day hasn’t come to contact with . i come to you not with a tale of some hidden cave in the heart of the wilderness, but that endless sprawl that surrounds all of humanity's great achievements. The last great uncharted territory. The ocean
Who Am I? I'm Malik Shaw, I've just recently in the past year made Jesus Christ my lord and savior. I can admit that it has been hard staying on the right track, but everyday I've been seeing him relay messages that help me in my daily walk in life through other people. Even though life has been hard for me I'm very fortunate. I realized in my time at Richmond Christian that a fall can humble you, but you will only change when you actually sit down, watch and totally understand that God has made a way for you. I can say that I was suppose to have been down and out for the count, but God held me up. When the devil threw his firsest punches at me. I was one day sitting in my room and a song that my favorite guitar player, pastor Johnathan dubose jr, was playing at an event and the words of the song said" I don’t believe he brought me this to leave me, nobody told me this road would be easy and I don’t believe he brought me this far
I am utterly terrified. I am alone. I feel lost. If you want me to let you in, here it is. I'm terrified you are going to leave me. I'm scared one day you're just gonna leave me on read for days on end, and then ignore my texts, side my calls and no longer be there for me. I'm scared Spencer is going to leave me just like Alea did. I'm scared he will realise how utterly broken on the inside I am. Who wants the anorexic girl? Who can love someone who can't even love herself? I have no mirrors in my room for a reason. When I do my makeup, I rush it just so I don't have to look at my ugly face. But I'm a great actor, aren't I? I can fake it. I can fake my confidence so much that I will believe myself, up until I spot my reflection. That is the
I got surprised to see that there were several explorers in history. I was going to pass up on Columbus, Lewis & Clark, Coronado, De Soto, Jacques, Samuel Champlain, John Cabot, John Fremont and Jedediah Smith. My name is Jedediah Smith, and I am what is known as a Mountain Man. My greatest accomplishment was finding the Great Salt Lake., and found a route from there to Los Angeles in California. I traversed all of the Rockies, across the deserts to California, and back. I used to be held in San Diego on suspicion of being a spy. I traversed the Mojave Desert, and was attacked by Indians losing several men. Was my traveling important? Yes, because without me, there would have been a lot more dead travelers than there were in the end. I
No horizon could find my skeleton, No search could recover my body My bones sit here, all covered in dust As who I once was is rotting Spiders have left their webs in my cage, I'm always trapped in my own mind.
Death is a sensitive topic that most don’t enjoy bringing up. And I understand why. But sometimes it’s best to deal with the topic of death head on. As Randy Pausch said in The Last Lecture, “...when there’s an elephant in the room introduce it”. So here is the elephant: everyone alive now will die one way or another. It’s the unfortunate truth that human life is fragile and one can die as quickly as they were born. However, while death may make you feel somber, just because you will die one day doesn’t mean that you can’t enjoy the time that you have left. Abraham Lincoln once said, “In the end, it's not the years in your life that count. It's the life in your years,” and this quote is very true. As the quote implies, although it is uncertain
I had my Nintendo DS to make it seem like it only took a couple minutes to drive to the water park, my siblings had also brought their own DS’s. Since everybody liked to play Mario Kart, I put it into my DS and set up a race for us to do. They connected to the race and we all played while Mom drove the car. Little did my siblings know, they were not going with us. Mom drove to our grandma’s house and said we were going inside for a couple of minutes.
“What do you want to be when you grow up?” a question that was asked every school year. For almost all of my elementary school days, I thought I was going to be a doctor, vet, or fire fighter. To me these jobs were “hero” jobs because it involved saving lives. It wasn’t until middle school when I realized those were not the only “hero” jobs out there and a “hero” job did not necessarily have to involve saving lives. I had this epiphany during my second year of middle school when I started my first job as a tutor at Kumon Learning center.
What does make a hero a hero? Is it there looks? Alternatively, maybe is it their personality? However, the question is what are those essential qualities that make one a hero? Different people require different heroes to look up to or try to emulate. However, whoever it may be, they all possess certain qualities. My hero is my mother, for the reason that she is selfless, compassion, and courage. That kind of selflessness can often be premeditated, since concentrating on others' needs often winds up helping one accomplish one’s own goals. However, a heroic leader does so without any anticipation of a return. The display and concern show the care one has for others. This can often apparent itself in strong but gentle actions planned to increase the lives of others. Courage and bravery come to mind first when we think of heroism. However, it is difficult to achieve anything truly heroic unless one is up against overwhelming chances. As Nelson Mandela put it, "Courage is not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it." These minor acts of heroism rarely attract any notice. A true hero is always sympathetic, benevolent and shows a great deal of compassion and sympathy to those poorly or in agony. He or she keeps away judgements; that are oriented to the self and embraces an attitude that serves others.
