I am sure that everyone of you have heard about aliens and UFOs. Indeed, we all have heard about the famous case of aliens and UFOs in Roswell, New Mexico. Most people might be interested in the topic of aliens, but I know that the majority of you just think of it as rumours and the existence of them are impossible. Therefore, I am standing here in front all of you to make you change your perspective. I am strongly confident that I have found the evidence of their real existence to convince all of you.
It was October 6, 1998 when he was lured from the bar that cold, fateful night. His skull was smashed with a pistol butt as he was lashed to a fence, left for dead in near freezing temperatures. Nearly eighteen hours later he was found by passersby and taken to a hospital where we remained in a coma for several days until slowly slipping away. At his funeral, picketers carried signs saying, "God Hates Fags" and *Fags Deserve to Die."
“ Great shot Breanna, great shot” said a fan congratulating her on winning the game with a buzzer beater shot, with a second left to play. After the game was done, she went into the locker room to change and get ready to go home. Once she got finished changing she starting walking outside towards her car.
George Mallory was one of the earliest climbers of Mt Everest, said that he did so “BECAUSE IT WAS THERE”. What a fantastic inspiring attitude. Do we still have that adventurous attitude that George had? How many of us ¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬have been on an adventure recently? (pause) Did you know that it has been scientifically proven outdoor adventures can treat and prevent a wide range of health problems. It can also make you smarter. Is anyone bad at maths around here? (pause) Well, here are some stats and big numbers for you. Stop recording
Students at Palmyra Area High School should not be allowed to display information supporting the display of the Confederate Flag in the atrium. The flag is seen as a controversial symbol, and can allow disruption to happen throughout the school. Supporting the flag is seen as a something throughout heritage, however, the flag can also be seen as racist. Throughout school hours, the school has the privilege to monitor the student's free speech, attempting to make the school a place that all the students want to be.
My fellow Huaorani we are facing a mass extinction. If we don’t act soon the tradition we have set up will disappear completely. The oil companies are trying to take over the ground beneath us because there is oil. They will stop at nothing to continue to make a profit and will show no mercy to us doing so. They look at us as if we are not even human, they show no respect for our traditions or our way of life.
We had just got back from ice cream express,Since we walked there from school, because it was sorta a special day it was Caledonia’s homecoming game! And after we got back we went down to the basement and started to play around, like with slime Bailey showed us some dance routines she did for church, and we made an American ninja warrior court. Then we went back up and got something from our bags, we ate a little bit of peanuts, just then I had a great idea I said... “let's go ding-dong-ditch Ky!” Bailey yelled “YES.” So Bailey went over and asked her mom, we were thrilled when she said yes.
For example, using a leftover coffee can for loose nails or screws, or even washing and reusing a plastic zip-loc bag instead of throwing it in the garbage. Thrift shopping is a way of reusing someone else’s unwanted goods. As I spoke about in an earlier speech about thrifting, I included many locations and ways to thrift, also the benefits to the shopper and the donator. One place in particular was shopping at the local boys and girls club. I personally shop there, keeping my eyes open for a good deal. For example, the pair of jeans that I am wearing today was purchased from this store just a few months ago. I paid only $8.00 for this pair of Lucky Jeans and according to buckle.com, a retailer for lucky jeans the retail price is $99.00 that is a savings to me of $91.00.I am not the type to worry about name brands, but quality usually does cost more. If I can get a quality pair of jeans at a fraction on the price, I am glad to shop at the thrift store. I am thankful to the person that made the donation of the lucky jeans and they can benefit from that donation. According to the IRS webpage, IRS. Gov it explains that an individual can donate items like clothing, household furniture and furnishings, a car or boat, even taxidermy. The donations are appraised, by the donator, and recorded. At the time of filing taxes if the donation equals at least $500 for the year, the donator may take advantage of the
What could a 10 year old possibly be worrying about? When I was 10 years old, my largest and most terrifying concern was that I broke my yellow crayon and that I would be labeled as the girl who had to take the walk of shame to the back of classroom to get an old, used yellow crayon from the community set. What a concept? The extent of social pressure that was forced on me was my crayon credibility and even then my friends didn’t feel the need to shun me for my shameful misconduct. More and more often, children are expected to endure an unnatural process as early as fourth grade and extending beyond their college years. While it is not ideal and obviously detrimental to the development of children and their concepts of social acceptance, this concept is all but surprising just as is the result, but the epidemic is only worsened by the lack of understanding of the situation. For all we know, it might mean the death of a basic human desire. But, what is it that we have all overlooked or underestimated? What “concept” could possibly be our downfall. It is simple, yet influential. Increasing rare, yet less and less sought after. And in the end, it is a master of imitation, masked as other qualities that lead us astray, away from our goal, away from our happiness. It is what everyone wants and yet no one can identify as exactly what it is, genuine human connection.
Imagine that you have a half glass of water left in a cup. Do you have a glass half full of water or a glass half empty? Keep this in your head throughout my speech. Abraham Lincoln once said, “Folks are usually about as happy as they make their minds up to be.” I believe that everyone can be happy if they want to be.
All High School students have said “I hate school” or “I can’t wait to get outta here” right? Then someone replies with “ wait till you get my age and you’ll wish you were there again”. They definitely weren't lying when they told me this. When I got into the Freshman Center most teachers mentioned “these next four years of school are gonna fly by”. Those teachers told the truth.
