Ceasar Herrera 11-15-12 Per.5 Be Grateful Being able to walk to the bathroom and taking a warm shower without any difficulty is one of the many small privlages we take for granted. Imagine not be able to do so, having to pour the water you are going to use into a big container & than having to heat the water every time before taking a shower. Having to follow thru with all those steps everyday for a month made me realize how I have it easy at home and it made me be more appreciative to all the things I have. When I was visiting Mexico during the summer of 2008 I was greatly impacted when I saw how my aunt, uncle, and cousins lived. I saw how poverty was common in their area & I saw how their life style was almost completely different from mine. They would often walk to far places instead of getting a ride, they wouldnt go to a fast food restaurant and buy something to eat when they were hungry, and one of the biggest differences is they didn’t sit on the couch and watch television when they would get bored. Even though their neighborhood was really different from where I live and they didn’t have many of the privlages that I have they always looked at everything with a positive attitude and they were really polite to everyone. One of the many ways that I was impacted by while I visited Mexico is that I saw that their stuff wasn’t of the greatest quality. They didn’t have the biggest new television, the newest video game console, new shoes, or new phones, they had the opposite of that but they still appreciated it. They didn’t complain about how they didn’t like their shoes or their tired of the games they have. They were just thankful and grateful for what they owned even though it wasn’t the biggest, newest, or the color they wanted.…

Personally I agree that the drinking age should remain at twenty-one. One main reason is that as someone who drives a lot, the roads are already dangerous enough. Allowing teenagers to drink will be asking for more drinking and driving accidents, which stems from the social determinant of transportation and goes against the principle of autonomy. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration estimates that raising the drinking age to 21 saves about 800 lives a year. Another reason why I believe…
i dont know i just want to read. Seeing the Real Stone Soup
Family is looked at as the most important thing, they are the rock or in this case your stone. “ Families change and remain the same.” It might pull a different change of direction but they will always be there. “Stone Soup’” written by Barbara Kingsolver is pointing out the obvious. Society has been bashing way to long on divorces, remarriage, single parents, blended families, and gay parents. By expressing her frustrations and her…

This summer my family and I drove to Daytona, Florida to visit with my grandparents. We had wanted to go to Florida for a while, missing the smell of the beach. Waking up at 4:15 in the morning, we all made sure we had everything we needed in our suit cases. It was just 4:45 in the morning when we started to pack everything in the back of the car. We got in our car and started to drive, which ended up to be 12 hours.
My grandparents live on a golf course which is very close the…
these places, I like the city library best.
It is located on the century street, in the north-east part of Shanghai. I go to there to read some books about 2 or 3 times a month.
As you can see, library is a place of book, knowledge and easy environment
1) Therefore, when I have to finish my homework, I always go to the city library not only because I can find some reference there but also because the city library offers me a quiet place to think.
2) On the other hand, when I need some rest…
