A Message to Remember I believe your life is your message to the world. If you’re going to live it, make it worthwhile; make it a message worth hearing. Every moment you spend worrying about how you look or what people think or how your life will pan out; that’s a moment of your life wasted. Most people don’t see the true value of life when it is most important. People need to learn to spend their lives doing things they love with people they love, not doing things that they think will benefit them in the future. Any day could be your last, so why put everything into planning for the future when all of that effort could be wasted? Everyone dreams of a happy life. A few years ago, that’s all I ever wanted. I, like many others, was looking for nothing more than to be happy, and at the time, being happy meant I had to be someone that I know I wasn’t. I’ve made poor decisions in my life, some decisions that almost cost me everything I have. Society’s view of the perfect girl made everyone who didn’t have a perfect face or a stunning body seem inadequate. I acknowledged this and soon turned into that girl that nobody really wanted to be around, I was that girl who hated mirrors because all they were to me was reminders of everything I hated about myself. I spent a great deal of my time changing my hair, starving myself, doing terrible things to myself because all I could think was how much I hated myself and who I was. I saw this image of me that was completely different than what everyone else saw. I worried way too much about my how others saw me that I quickly started to notice that I really didn’t have friends, I was going days on end without talking to anyone but my family. I was far from happy. I soon slipped into a depression that has haunted me for over four years. In this time, I did little more than spend days in my…
What was the message of the Prophet Muhammad?
Islam means “submission” or “surrender”. That is Muhammad’s message that the faith full must submit to Allah. Allah is all powerful, all knowing, and all seeing one must submit to Allah and accept him as the one true and only God. Where have we seen this before? I believe we have heard it all over the known world by now. Muhammad also claimed that the Archangel Gabriel commanded him to declare himself the “Seal of the Prophets” or the last of…
“Too Young to Remember”
Have you ever read something and felt anger inside because of what you just read? What about reading something about someone else and feeling like you could relate in some way to them? Well in this chapter of the book, “The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks”, had me feeling some type of way. This chapter was very intense and had a series of unfortunate events.
In the beginning of the chapter, Henrietta’s cousins are in mourning because of her death. Her cousins came from…

Dreams mean a lot. Dreams are Heavenly messages. Sometimes they are ideas from the past; sometimes forebodings of the future and sometimes communications for the present. Dreams are the closest we can get to prophetic visions and revelations (Danziger, 2012). This writer has convincing personal experience with these kinds of dreams, in which messages have been transmitted and acted out in real life to their fulfillment.
It happened one night in my home in Cleveland, Ohio. Shaking…

Remember The Titans
The movie “Remember The Titans” is about a high school football team during the early 1970’s that has been changed into a racially divided team. The original team that is not so happy with this new change is forced to go to a boot camp that will not only train them for the new season, but also for team building.
The character I believe that changed the most was Gerry Bertier (played by Ryan Hurst). At the beginning Gerry is portrayed as a typical high school jock on the…
Going to my dad’s house every other weekend became a routine that wasn’t questioned. For quite some time my mom and I lived with my grandmother, my dad’s mother.
I can still recall lying in bed at night, holding my mom’s hand until I fell asleep. I remember the joy of packing my bags to go visit my dad. This procedure wasn’t anything out of the ordinary for me. In fact, until my mom met her second husband, I thought the situation was normal.
Three years later I was exposed to a new life, a new home…
Sadly this piece of
work sets the stage for the many different governing bodies throughout time including our own. The
most shocking part of the book is that it is entirely true. The average reader will be appalled by its
message but never the less; the message is a complete work of non-fiction. There is one fundumental
flaw in the Prince however. It is completely devoid of God and morality. The lack of conscience in the
book “the Prince” is a testament to Machiavelli’s shortsightedness…
