About seventeen years ago, on a usual spring day the person who I had always expected to see and who I considered my mother would no longer be available to me. The sky was clear; the wind was blowing; it felt good outside.

It felt like my heart had stopped and everything had frozen around me because I knew that was unusual. As I jumped out the car and ran into the house; my aunt tried to stop me at the front door to tell me my granny had passed away, but all I remembered is just running past her down the short hallway into my grandmother’s room and falling to my knees on the brown shaggy carpet while the tears begin to flow uncontrollably as I laid my head on her stomach and begin telling her I love her. In that moment of time, it felt as if I wanted to die with her and really couldn't understand why God would take her away from me. Once I gotten myself together, I came out the room and went and sat into the small living room listening to my mom screams and cries of sadness and my aunt telling her it’s going to be ok Mariel. Once my aunt settle my mom down she came and ask me to come into the kitchen with them. As I walked into the smoke filled kitchen, I sat down in the blue lazy boy and begin listening to my aunt talk about funeral arrangements. My body was

In my opinion, the Hawley-Smoot Tariff is not the only reason causes the Great Depression but also there are many other main reasons such as: crashed of the stock market of 1929, Banks failures, reduction in purchasing across the board, etc... The Smoot-Hawley Tariff Act of June 1930 was created by the U.S. government such to protect American companies while American businesses began falling.

energy. Another type of collision is called an elastic collision. An elastic collision is when the objects don’t touch and no kinetic energy is lost. An example of an elastic collision is two toy trucks colliding with each other and no damage is being done.

for they lost so much. Despite the low damage the British had done, the defeat forced the Spanish ships to escape northwards, but they had come to grief on the coasts of Scotland and Ireland due a sea storm and ships being looted by the Irish resulting in less than half of the ships returning to Spain.

I see an open field full of lost souls looking and searching for a safety zone, not knowing what the world has for them next. They are asking questions and looking for answers, yet no answers have come. They do not know who to look for when they are in a time of need. Who will save them and be their rescuer?

heard all my life when I was growing up as a kid in Queens. Whether it was playing my favorite sport or playing my instrument, I was told
this when I was young. In the poem "The Road Not Taken," it starts off saying "Two roads diverged in a yellow wood, and sorry I could not travel both (Frost 1-2)." This to me meant
