“How JROTC has prepared me to be a better citizen of the United states of America”. JROTC has prepared me to become a better citizen by teaching me how to use leadership skills and be able to cope with subordinates. It also has prepared me to be a better citizen by showing me what the 7 army values are and what they mean. Some of the army values are respect, honor, integrity, and personal courage. JROTC has showed me how to do things different from the way I thought things should be done and how to march and be able to keep a company and platoon together when marching. Since I know a lot about the JROTC I am able to help other people become better citizens like I was taught. I am also a better citizen because i have the discipline not to do certain things that I did before I took the JROTC class.

In the middle of the night on February 9, 1960 Carlotta Walls LaNier's house was bombed. Carlotta was one of only nine black students to integrate into Central High School in Little Rock Arkansas who were together known as the Little Rock Nine. The segregationists had targeted Carlotta because in a few months Carlotta would graduate from Central High School. The press tried to cover the terrible event, but they misinterpreted the information. Carlotta’s dad and two of her friends were accused of the incident even though it was most likely a segregationist. This was one of many important events in Little Rock that the press spread nationwide. The press illuminated important examples of segregation in the south, especially the Little Rock Nine,
The events that took place surrounding the Little Rock Nine Crisis, are still embedded in the minds of many. The Little Rock Nine made sure to show people to always stand up for what is right, no matter how difficult the situation is. This event caused many things to occur and has completely changed schools forever.

Melba Patillo was kicked, beat up, and had acid thrown in her face. At some point during school white students burned an African-American effigy in a vacant lot across from the school.
What was it about these 9 black students that impacted on so many lives? The Little Rock 9. Many people loved them and many people also hated them. But they did not let that stop them from becoming who they are today.
In 1957, Little Rock, a town in Arkansas, was one of the first places in the south to have integrated schools. The Little Rock Nine was a group that started the desegregation process. They were a group of nine African-American boys and girls who were going to integrate Central High School. This caused many problems with segregationists because they did not want their schools integrated. Segregationists created mobs around Central and did many things in protest. At Central many of the African-American kids experienced bullying. As a result, they fought through the bullying and pursued. Photographs, television, and newspapers were all news mediums used to illuminate events surrounding the Little Rock Nine even though they weren’t always correct.
“The world is a dangerous place, not because of those who do evil, but because of those who look on and do nothing”, quoted the famous Albert Einstein. Most people don’t care what happens to others who need the help. Luckily, we invented food banks, Wounded Warrior Project, and plenty of other things. I would like to be part of National Junior Honor Society because the very origin of the society came from service. I realize that to be a part of the society, I will need to work hard to get where I want to be.
If two people of different races are just alike you shouldn’t separate them. But you also shouldn’t tell one part of the story to make something or someone look good. The Plessy vs. Ferguson case came up with the famous quote “separate but equal” Meaning things could be separated between races as long as each race had all the same things. Particularly in this case between Blacks and Whites, but in schools, restaurants, and many other places it wasn’t equal. So there was a case called Brown vs. Board of Education which fought to integrate schools and Brown won. The first to integrate was the Little Rock Nine in Little Rock, Arkansas. While the Little Rock Nine were integrating the press illuminated and distorted information and pictures of the
Some of the difficulties that Melba witnessed and experienced during the 1957 integration efforts of the “Little Rock 9” are when in chapter two after they made the decision on Brown v Board of Education when Melba was walking home after school a white man attempted to kidnap and assault and possibly rape Melba just because she was a young black girl.
There are many ways that the press worked to clarify events for the national audience from the Little Rock Nine. The Little Rock Nine was a group of nine black children who wanted a chance to go to Central High School for educational purposes. What they didn't know was that there were segregationists who would do everything in their power to make sure the black students wouldn't have the experience they wanted at Central. The media took these moments to make news that everyone would see and know about.
This past year, I have been motivated to keep up my grades and work hard because of Adams' National Junior Honor Society program. I have aspired to be in the Society since I read it over the summer on the Adams website. I was so excited when I received this letter because it meant I had a chance at making the program. I want to be in NJHS because it will teach me how to manage my time, organize events, and work with others. Working with others who also value academic success contributes to my will to be in the program. Together, we can help each other grow and thrive in the community. We can also collaborate to help those in our community who aren’t in the position to speak out for themselves. I read about an NJHS group that organized an event where they donated toys to children who are less fortunate. They spoke out in school and changed the lives of many young, unhappy children through the program.
In the kerfuffle over presidential candidate Ben Carson’s claim that he was admitted to West Point, the news media have pointed out that the “full scholarship” part of his story adds even more confusion because, as the New York Times story today put it, “Technically, West Point does not offer scholarships. It is free.”
You walk shaking into a classroom. You feel wronged, but confronting Ms. Susan is something very few people have done, and all students have had detention. You're scared as she opens the doors. Your mind is racing, trying to think of what to say. In “bad” schools children may not feel accepted or worthy of going to that school. This is not a good thing. Children who don’t like school can have trouble later in life because they didn’t care. Because of this they get poor grades which led to more and more worse grades which led to low paying jobs. In order to combat this problem you must first know about the school rating system, what it takes to become a good or a bad school and a few of the many
