Doc The cool autumn air whipped through my hair, leaving behind the crisp smell of fall. I was in Branson, Missouri with my family. We were on vacation in “the wild wild west,” as my mom called it. At the time I was five years old and didn't really care for any of it but as soon as I saw him, it was love at first sight. There, standing just ten feet in front of me was Buckshot; a gorgeous paint with big, brown, eyes that shimmered in the setting sun. I slowly walked up to him and stroked his big soft nose; I couldn't stop smiling. I looked at my mom and said, “Mommy, one day I will own a Buckshot, and I will ride him every day, and love him forever and ever.” To this day I still have intentions of keeping that promise. I don't own a horse now, but last year I had one that I always rode and took care of; his name was Doc. About a year ago Doc was diagnosed with a deadly eye disease. At first, he vet was optimistic about his condition, but then in January things got progressively worse. In March we had to put him down, I was devastated. That entire week at school was torture, it was agonizing to focus on school work because all I could think about was him. When I told my best human friend about Doc, I couldn't stop myself from crying. It was too hard to hide all the emotions; but lucky for me, she helped me get through that hard time. Losing a pet is one of the hardest things for a person to go through. I created such a special bond with him and when he was gone, it felt like a part of me had been ripped out. I still miss him everyday. Doc was the first horse I cantered on and I will never forget that moment, I felt invincible. His strides were so smooth and graceful; I could have been up in the saddle forever. I cannot think of a happier moment in my life then cantering through an open field on a beautiful spring day. Feeling the wind whip through my hair, smelling the aroma of sweet grass, and riding with my best friend – Doc – is the best feeling in the world. I honestly don't know what I would do without horses. They sparked a passion inside of me that makes me…

Moses and the Ten Commandments
The Image of Moses and the Ten Commandments is an image that most of us are familiar with even if we don’t know the story behind Gods laws.

Haram (impermissible) to remove treatment? And if those people are assisted with their

personal response and opinion, based on my knowledge of the islamic teachings in the Quran
and sharia’ (islamic law).
To my understanding, the consensus is that where there is life in the human form, we have to
