Helping others is a value my mother and father have always aspired to instill in me. As a young child, I often found myself assisting my grandmother, who was a nurse at the time, in taking care of our sick family members, one of which was my grandfather. My grandfather, Jim Wren, was diagnosed with lung cancer when I was in the fifth grade. It was heartbreaking for me, and I felt as if my entire world was falling to pieces. When I was younger, I would ride the school bus to his house every day after school. While my grandmother was at work, my grandfather and I would often find ourselves fishing in the lake behind his house or walking outside on trails he had once cut. While my grandfather and I were outdoors, I would often observe how he felt. It was amazing to see the extreme improvement in his health and even his mind set by simply going outside and getting a little exercise. From that day forward, I have always longed to see the
Of all the forms of literature, the most interesting might be the fairytales, or the science fiction thriller about robots. However, there lacks the sense of truth, in a way blocking the reader from true connection with the story. Memoir is real, memoir is true, and memoir can range from any end of the ocean in structure and theme.
The human body is the original story. One that is always in flux due to biological, psychological, and societal considerations. In crafting a story, there’s no such thing as perfection. Each person’s narrative comes together—by the page, sentence, word, and punctuation. Our individual and collective experiences are all a part of the reality we ascribe to ourselves and the world, and like with any draft, parts of it may be scrapped for something new.
I have learned a great many things from playing soccer. It has changed my entire outlook on and attitude toward life. Before my freshman year at Cool high school, I was shy, had low self-esteem and turned away from seemingly impossible challenges. Soccer has altered all of these qualities. On the first day of freshman practice, the team warmed up with a game of soccer. The players were split up and the game began. However, during the game, I noticed that I didn't' t run as hard as I could, nor did I try to evade my defender and get open. The fact of the matter is that I really did not want to receive the ball. I didn't' t want to be the one at fault if the play didn't' t succeed. I did not want the responsibility of helping the team
One cold sunny weekend in February of 2014 in Madison, MS the Saint Stanislaus boys just arrived to the hotel where they would stay for the night before the big game. All was good the night before we ate and later went to sleep. We all woke up around eight in the morning and had breakfast. We left for the fields around twelve because the game was at two in the evening.
From a young age, I had an innate desire to help others, whether it was to hold the door for groups of people or to carry an individual’s items I could never stop from helping another person. My thought process at the time which still holds true today is that when someone
I have been blessed beyond measure in my life with the love and support of my family. It is because of that love and support that I feel a strong obligation to be the best person I can be by working hard and caring about the world around me. Through my volunteer work, I have participated in many fundraisers, food and clothing drives. However, my greatest personal growth has come from more direct acts of kindness that go largely unrecognized to anyone other than the recipient. My first experience meeting someone in very unfortunate circumstances occurred when my mother suggested we deliver meals for an Atlanta based organization called Open Hands. Open Hands prepares individualized healthy meals for very ill people living on their own. Open Hands conducted training on a

In my high school career, I have volunteered at the hospital and packing backpacks for people in need. While working at the hospital, I would see sick and dying people all the time and it made me want to help them. Ever since I was little, I have wanted to help people and make everyone happy. When I volunteer, it makes me realize that I should not take everything for granted because there are people out there who need so much more than I do. In my volunteering hours, I have received numerous thank yous and hugs from people whom I helped and whom I have worked for.
Tutankhamun (Tutankhamen) was born in Egypt in 1341 B.C. In 1323 B.C. Tutankhamun died of an unknown death; he was only 17 or 18 years old. Before he died he got to live a short time as a ruler. After his body was exhumed, there have been signs that Tutankhamus could have been murdered, or died from an infection from an injury. “Historians generally agree that he was the twelfth ruler of the 18th Egyptian Dynasty, who assumed the throne when he was eight or nine years old. Before puberty he was married to his half-sister (or, possibly, niece) Ankhesenamen, daughter of Queen Nefertiti. He reigned until his death in his late teens. Some studies of his remains suggest that he was
It is said that bragging makes you seem less impressive, if you are doing something worth bragging about, others will brag for you.
