Imagine you’re walking around town with your friends. All of a sudden you see a lady hunched over walking slowly with her walker, walking outside the grocery store. As she walks to her car you see a bumper sticker that says Army Strong. Do you ever wonder how this person’s life was different from the world today? I do this often after listening to my great grandpa talk about his life as a teenager and young adult. For most people his stories were just stories, but for me his stories had meaning because they are part of my family’s past and always taught me a lesson. When I listened to his stories I could really picture how the times were in the 1930’s and 1940’s. One of the first stories my great grandpa ever told me was about growing up on a farm in Minnesota. He would explain that he learned a lot from growing up on a farm but one of the main lessons he learned is that hard work pays off. He would tell me that if I worked hard towards anything I could achieve whatever I wanted. He loved telling random stories about hunting with his buddies instead of doing his chores on the farm. He would explain to me that hunting can teach patience, discipline, and self-control. I have never hunted myself but because of him I always work hard to have these characteristics. Several times he would tell me his favorite story which was about my great grandma and how much he loved her. He would explain how they only met a couple months before he was drafted into world war two. My great grandma was devastated he had to leave and she wanted to marry him before he left for war. My
A this I Believe Essay
I believe that hard work pays off. Often times, at least as of recently, people are always looking for the easy way out. Many teenagers want to do the least work possible, no matter the negative effects that occur. The majority chooses to do the bare minimum, whether it be while doing homework or during a practice. However, I have learned, so far, that if I put in the time and put in the work necessary to begin with I will achieve the goals that I have set for myself…
I Believe In finding A Way Out Of The Darkness
Every person in this world has tragedies take place in their lives, some tragedies are greater than others, but that does not mean they don’t impact them the same way, they are all devastating nevertheless. These tragedies can turn life into a lifeless, dark, and confiding cave, making it seem there’s no way out until you die. I believe in being able to find the way out, though the dark cave may seem deceptive, you may have lost all hope but one…
age of eleven that I reached a small predicament in my so far, short life. I was with my family, driving through the heart of Saudi Arabia. A combined 34 hours back and forth, visiting the second, third, and fourth largest cities. Jeddah, Mecca, and Medina. A trip like no other as I now recall. It was through the large mountains and deserts that we so swiftly passed through, that I truly understood how gigantic this fantastic world of ours really is. It came to my attention that I was very very small…

Have you walked through the grocery store lately and seen the junk our country is trying to market to our children? All the pretty colors and cartoon gimmicks they use to persuade our young ones to eat their so called “Food.” Have you peeked into other peoples shopping carts? Well I have and I am astounded by the amount of junk people buy and I can’t believe parents are being fooled by these Rat Bastard liars. I have some strong disagreements with how…
I believe in dreams. Dreams are the foundations of our life today. Many of the great things we have today were created first in dreams. Dreams are a portal to reality. If people didn’t dream where would we be.
I BELIEVE IN DREAMS
Martin Luther King Jr. had a dream. A dream that people will one day live in a nation where people will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character. Madame C.J. Walker had a dream in which a guy told her what to mix together…
The Negative Consequences Of Hydraulic Fracturing.
Fracturing a method used in extraction of natural gas stood a test of time. United states of America (USA) has used fracturing for the lengthiest period of time where nearly a million wells are estimated to have been fracked and drilled (The Economist 2011). A ban was imposed in France as the environmentalists took a dislike in fracturing techniques of using chemicals, sand and high pressure.

When I think about symbolic holidays such as Christmas or Thanksgiving, I see them as more
than just a simple celebration among the crowd. Thanksgiving is the time where the heart of all people
are set to express their deepest gratitude to one another, and it is the day to forgive and remember the
good and bad times we went through as family and friends. It's time to answer the question...what are
you thankful for? I am thankful for my life in general, though I used to think a wonderful life was…

I Believe in Summertime
Summer is a time when I am playing soccer, swimming and having no worries.
Being able to be a stupid teenager and do stupid things with stupid teenagers. A time when the
sun is out and I am ecstatic. Summer is by far my favorite time of the year. I spend a lot of my
time traveling and going to music festivals. I believe that summer just isn’t a time where there is
no school, but a time to bring your family together…
A friendly hello once in awhile does not harm anyone. I believe that if you greet a person with a pleasant smile and genuine “hello” and a “how are you doing?” you can make their whole day much better. It is the simple act of kindness that everyone is able to show.
Once while standing in the long line for the checkout at Wal-Mart, I noticed the cashier looked very tired and upset, and all the customers were in a rush to buy their things and leave. It was just a busy day, and rarely a few…
