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.…
so many places to go and so much to do? Huh? Huh? Because of you! Because all these people love you! We push her wheelchair. We drive her to work. We drive her home. We wash her. We dress her. We get her up, and put her to bed. We carry her. And she is not petite, Lars. Bianca is a big, big girl! None of this is easy—for any of us—but we do it... Oh! We do it for you! So don't you dare tell me how we don't care.

out of 640 adults ages 25 to 39 years in the United States is a survivor of childhood cancer.(Huh) In 1973, at the age of two, an x-ray showed a shadow in my chest which was a solid growing out of my spinal cord called ganglioneuroblastoma. A surgeon removed the portion not in the spine. The next step of treatment was radiation to kill the remainder in the spine. Every three months for the next 5 years I had a follow-up appointment. A patient surviving 5 years after the original date of the cancer…
pen needs a pad cause my rhymes on the ra-aag
Just like I did with addiction I'm 'bout to kick it
Like a magician, critics I turn to crickets
Got 'em still on the fence whether to pick it
But quick to get impaled when I tell 'em stick it
So sick I'm looking pale, well, that's my pigment
'Bout to go ham, ya bish, shout out to Kendrick
Let's bring it back to that vintage Slim, bitch
The art of MCing mixed with da Vinci and MC Ren
And I don't mean Stimpy's friend, bitch

months after the video game incident, Quinn and I were playing hide and seek.”… 7…8…9…10! Here I come!” I said. The first place I checked was behind the CD rack. That’s where I hide and still nobody knows I do. But Quinn wasn’t there. I checked in other various spots, but Quinn was nowhere to be found. Then, I noticed the TV was on.” Huh. Why is that on?” I said. I walked over to turn it off, but before I could, I heard a shriek.
I jumped up in surprise. I quickly scanned my surroundings, but nothing…
City. The situation had become so desperate, it included a British soldier firing a Vickers machine gun from the middle of a road at any aircraft that passed. He could only say: "The bloody bastards will never think of looking for me in the open, and I want to see a bloody plane brought down."
The next recorded raid on the city occurred on the night of 29/30 December, and nightly raids ensued for over a week, only to be accompanied by daylight raids from 12 January 1942 onward. In the days that…

Man: Thanks, I can handle it; in fact I need to tell you something urgent.

This may also be her way of showing Stanley that she has a plan and a life ahead of her after the truth of her promiscuous past was revealed.
Stanley’s language towards Blanche show the conflict between them. Stanley uses non-standard English such as “I thought it was Tiffany diamonds.” His incorrect grammer shows his refusal to adapt his language around Blanche to match her formal speech suggesting that he is hostile to those of a higher social class.

excited to start our journey but before we go I want you to know my background. Lets first start where I was born, I was born and produced in the bone and marrow.

There’s also a important protein inside me that’s called hemoglobin which allows me to carry oxygen around.
