The m The headlines are filled with stories of war, murder, and hatred. Homes and schools often seem to be filled with antagonism and conflict rather than sanctuary. Occasionally, however, acts of thoughtfulness and mercy do occur. Philip Yancey describes these two sides of life in his book What’s So Amazing About Grace? He says that the world is filled by what he calls “ungrace.” This “ungrace” is exactly what Dolphus Raymond was talking about in To Kill a Mockingbird when he said, “Cry about the simple hell people give to one another without even thinking about it.” One need not look to the headlines for stories of terrorism or crime to see the truth in this quote. Most students in high school will agree that this quote accurately describes many relationships between teachers and students, among students, and even within families. All this violence and thoughtless disrespect for others is what Yancey describes as “ungrace.” A clear alternative to “ungrace” is the way of grace. While grace is a simple word that most people have heard, it is not a concept that is a part of this “insane society.” Furthermore, although grace is a small word, it is one of those concepts that is multifaceted. The following words of George Eliot provide a good beginning to an understanding of what Yancey means by grace: “What else do we live for if it is not to make life a little easier for others.” There are more faces to the concept of grace. It includes thankfulness as when…
Now John Henry was a mighty man, yes sir. He was born a slave in the 1840's but was freed after the war. He went to work as a steel-driver for the Chesapeake & Ohio Railroad, don't ya know. And John Henry was the strongest, the most powerful man working the rails.
John Henry, he would spend his day's drilling holes by hitting thick steel spikes into rocks with his faithful shaker crouching close to the hole, turning the drill after each mighty blow. There was no one who could match…

A Great and Mighty Walk
When looking at cultural and political times of today there is a need for the black cultural to be able to gauge and find the African presence on a geographical map. In our times we have been given a lot of confusing information that has not made much sense. As Malcolm X once said in A Great and Mighty Walk “We need to know what we aren’t and what we are”. “We are African”. There is a need for all African…

Controversial issue from the get-go
My interest in Mighty River Power began when Bill English (Financial Minister) announced the selling of MRP, but it wasn’t the selling which caught my attention. My attention was drawn to the bad publicity, these complaints in particular:

Freak the Mighty™ is better than The Mighty™
Recently there have been many discussions on what is better, Freak the Mighty (the original book) or The Mighty (the movie). I know that there are arguments on both sides but I think that the truth is; Freak the Mighty is much better than The Mighty.
The book is better than the movie in many ways such as that there are much more parts to enjoy in the book. This is because the movie left out many things that even tough is minor it is quite enjoyable…

either side may win due to who has the highest vote.
Government is important because it keeps the people in a society civilized under laws.

Mighty Time: Rosa Parks,
the political debate at that time was whether or

It also showed the government during her time and how whites were superior to blacks

Response to “The Mighty Big Love Test”
In “The Mighty Big Love Test”, Suzanne Roberts writes about her one hundred fifty mile kayaking trip with her boyfriend. She describes the trip as a relationship test. Throughout the trip she seems to be very unconfident and she feels embarrassed for her lack of experience with kayaking in the ocean. Her boyfriend was very experienced because he had been a kayaking instructor before.
I found this passage very interesting. I’ve been sea kayaking before but…

settles as an overwhelming disappointment fell across the crowd, Casey had struck out.
The short narration of the game show flaws in Casey's character, best revealed by the
crowd's perception of him, and his pride, ultimately leading to his death as the character of
“the mighty Casey”(20).
Casey is just a man, nothing more, the crowd made him to be more, because the
outcome of the game is looking poor and they needed a hero.
