The past wasn’t pretty for the town. They weren’t always like this. Before, people could dress how they want, say what was on their mind, but most importantly they were free. They didn’t have to listen to anyone, they didn’t have to do what they were told. There were no rules.
I am a mathematical anomaly. If you were to look at my life through statistical problems laid one after the other you would see an increasing number of disbelief. When viewed this way my very existence seems impossible. I was born with pneumonia which alone is not actually too big a deal for a newborn. Scary to be sure but actually about three in ten die from this, even less if you are born in a hospital as I was, but that's not all. I also was suffering from a rare disease called Langerhans cell histiocytosis. At the time my diagnosis was about a one in ten but even then, my parents were told that I wouldn't live past the age of eight. They didn't give up there though, they took the news and said “no we will not accept this for our child,”
In the past couple of months I have read a couple of news stories involving parents who left there child in a locked and hot car, some resulting in death. One of these involved a woman in Hackensack, New Jersey who took one of her two children in the Costco to shop, while the other a 2 year old was left in her minivan for 30 minutes. 911 was called, the police responded and the child was rescued from the vehicle, covered in sweat, scared, and very shaken, but alive. The mother was charged with child endangerment, and both children were returned to there father that day.

Maria is a caring, smart, loving women that will do anything for my son and he would do anything for her.
She would try to get lost. It was the eighties and we had no cell phones or GPS. But, we had a car, and she said we were free with a car. She drove down all the little roads, but we were never really lost because we were never really scared and all roads lead somewhere.
I would never abandon Danielle, she has been with me since pretty much the day I moved here. The way we started was I asked my cousin Lavell who people were on instagram and i followed a bunch of people which one of them happened to be Danielle. That night I checked my phone and noticed that she had liked a large number of my pictures, so i asked Lavell who she was and he told me a little bit about her. The next day, July 4th, Lavell and i was going to go to a get together with his friends and they all had dates while i the new kid had no one to go with. I took a leap of faith and asked her what she was doing and if she would be interested in coming with me even though we didnt know each other. I told her that i lived with Lavell and that if she wanted

As the plane lands, I see a gray smoke hovering the whole city of Manila, Philippines. It was exactly as I remember it to be. Hot, humid, polluted, and lots of mosquitoes from left to right. These weren’t pleasing at all, however there’s something here that makes me want to go back every time. That is my very own mother.
Despite all of the obstacles my mother has faced, she always strived to become successful and take care of her family. The youngest child and only daughter of six children, she is a first generation college graduate and the first person in her family to attend college. After completing her masters degree in education, she taught at the high school level for thirteen years. After that, she was a distance learning teacher at Kamehameha Schools Maui for around six years.
Today is March 24, 1950, and my mother is taking my brother and I to the doctor’s office. I don’t know why we are going again; we went just three days ago, on my thirteenth birthday. The doctor did a lot that day, too. He put this huge mask on my head while I ran in place, watched how I breathed, took xrays of my brain, and even watched how I slept. Also, he and my mother talked for awhile. I can’t remember exactly what they were talking about, but I remember some words. “...in perfect health for the procedure…”, “...strongly suggested…”, “...will be allowed to watch…” I don’t know what the procedure is, or what my mother is allowed to watch. In fact, I’m not really sure if it is my mother who is allowed to watch. I’m pretty sure they were
I met about thirty kids on my first day of third grade, one of those thirty kids changed my entire life. She is the reason for the decisions I have made, my beliefs, and why I strive in the things I do. I know that if I never met her or befriended her, I would be a completely different person. She gave me a reason to try and she gave me a reason in wanting to succeed. The girl that drastically influenced the person I am today, is Katherine.
This week I competed three social histories. It seems like the more I do them, the easier it seems to be getting. I feel more comfortable with the residents. It also seems like coming up with questions is becoming easier for me. There is a general idea on what to ask, but she wants me to go beyond what is on the sheet. It actually has become fun. I have learned so much about the residents. They are so interesting and have some wonderful stories to share. Man, how things have changed through the years. I interviewed a 94-year-old man and I asked him how him and his wife met. He said that there was an all-girl school across the street from his house. He went over to talk to a girl he knew and he met another girl, and that girl was his now wife.
February 2012, my mom is going to have a baby. I was excited because I wanted a little brother to teach things too. I was the last child, but my sister was only one year older than me so I played with her. She did not like doing the same things as me, I didn't really play with her anymore I would play by myself. February 9th 2012, my brother was born, when he was born he was a premature my mom said he would be born in March like me, I wanted to be the only on one of my mom's children to be born in March. But because he's a premature he was born earlier than expected. When he came home for the first the day I was so excited. But my mom would not let me touch him and I couldn't take care of him cuz I was young. When I was younger my mom used
Her mom and dad never loved her. She has never even left the house. Her parents didnt even bother gaving her a name. Al she had was this like a tape recorder that she found under her moms bed. She loved that thing. One day she found a newspaper of a little girl that was getting hurt by her parents like she was. It said that one day she finally called the police ,and showed them all of the evidence she had. She got to get a new family. Right there at that moment the little girl knew what to do.
