When I first watched Selma I had mentally prepared myself for bad things to happen before the movie even started. When the movie actually started it had automatically hit me, because of the church scene and really seeing how defenseless those little girls were. I feel like they were innocent in this whole thing like they knew about all the things that was going on but didn’t quite understand what was really happening and how the movement affected others.
When 40,000 penguins were stranded on robben and dassen island covered in oil people had to act. The Great Penguin Rescue was a phenomenal book! It was filled with funny moments that kept me laughing, but right when I turned the page my cheerfulness was smashed by a sad story. I wasn't very familiar with penguins before this book but after reading it I feel like an expert.
I read “Eleanor and Park” for my independent reading assignment for Mrs. Reed’s Lit Comp 9 class. This book was very emotional and I disliked the ending a lot. Did any of you like the ending to this book and what do you think the significance of it was? I don’t want to ruin the story for anyone but I believe it was very disappointing to end the book so dramatically in that way.
The Fault in Our Stars is a wonderful book it kept me entertained i feel like I could read it over and over again. I'm not a big fan of reading but, I could read this book all day and not do anything else. The book is about a teenage girl name Hazel and a teenage boy name Agustus and they fall in love but to them its like taking a big risk because with them you never know what's gonna happen next. Its really hard to explain the book without giving too much away the book has its moments if you're a sentimental person because it make you cry and laugh.
The book A Child Called It, by Dave Pelzer, was such a riveting book that I most certainly couldn’t put down. One thing that surprised me throughout the whole book was the way that his mother treated him. Dave was treated very badly as his and his mothers relationship took a drastic turn. He had to endure not only physical pain but emotional pain too. His mother found many ways to torture him, such as making him swallow ammonia. Pelzer recounts,”With the spoon in her hand, Mother began to creep towards me.
An example of an Indelible moment is getting a tattoo because a tattoo is permanent and stays on your body forever and it can have many meanings no matter if its a name of some sort or if its anything else. its still something unforgettable. Also what makes memories indelible and others not is that some memories people take differently because we all have different perspectives ,therefore some memories for people can be indelible and some cannot because there is all different perspectives.
Child neglect is one of the worst things that can happen to anybody in their childhood. Although child neglect is difficult to officially define; in my words it’s basically is the failure to providing the basic needs for a child and care for them. This is the most common and most frequent type of child abuse. It can cause negative long term psychological and physical effects such as substance abuse, self harm, mental/emotional/behavioral issues, severe depression, and many other types of traumatizing effects.

When I was in second grade, it was time to go home. It was time for all of us to go home. We all were going home and I decided to go home by myself. I didn't listen to my teacher. I was supposed to wait for my sister to pick me up, but I didn't.
I am pretty sad right now. I lost the cutest pet i had yesterday because of my dog. Somehow my dog got into my room and opened my hamster's cage. I walked in my room and saw my hamster's stuffing everywhere and the cage opened.I didn't want to believe it, I only had him for a month. I was beginning to really like my hamster Stuart. I named hm Stuart because my favorite movie was Stuart Little when I was a kid. Stuart was so different it seemed like, like he had his own personality. He was lazy like me so I really connected with him.
The holocaust was a massive problem, Adolf Hitler created to vanish jews, homosexuals, Gypsies, and metal. The Nazi party was all ruled by Hitler, he wanted a Nation of one race. It all occurred during world war 2. The final solution of the jewish question was to kill all of them, the holocaust was to get rid of them.
Using the Judge memorial Gale resource, I found a few things on what makes people happy. First, this may seem obvious but it is actually a pretty good deduction: we may increase our happiness levels by focusing on our strengths. We can then use these strengths to accomplish tasks and improve things around us. This gives us a sense of purpose and we see ourselves in a good way rather than just in our weaknesses and in our faults. Second, when we see someone we love, parts in our brain connected to happiness activate and thus, causes happiness.
For my project in english I am finding what makes people happy and why some people are happier than others. In the short time I have had to do research thus far I have found that people who take part in events that are self-endorsed. Having a sense of self-determination and pride makes people feel more accomplished and, ultimately, happy. Also, I briefly read something saying that people who express their gratitude to others more often are more happy. If people are grateful for what is given to them and what they have, they appreciate life more and, in turn, are more happy.
A couple of years ago my mom’s grandpa passed away , and my mom and family were crying at least for two weeks. My dad has been in the hospital for about a month and four weeks. I hate seeing him like how he is he had to get a cut on his neck to get a breathing tube down to his lungs to help him breathe better. The second day that he was in the Dominican hospital he stopped breathing. The doctors rushed him over to the emergency room. My mom was scared she called my and said your dad is in comma. i was terrified to hear that my heart was beating fast i was scared and worried.
So, I readed an article about the typhoon in Philippines, and it makes me very sad because there are thousands and thousands of people dieing. They need our help! I think maybe if we could help in some way, it would be really nice from us, Americans. It really surprised me when i read this quote from the article called "philippines Typhoon Survivors Desperate For Clean Water" that says, "Not only do survivors need to stay hydrated, they also need to be protected from waterborne diseases such as cholera and typhold." Just because of this natural disaster people are getting sick & dieing.

After reading book 1, Bigger is guilty for the murder of Mary Dalton because he considered on putting a pillow over Mary's head and slice her white throat with a blade as he described it in the book 1, But I believe he did this because he has gone through a lot with his life by going through thing that he don't like which are having to find a job to support his own family, planning on robbery with his friends, and having to be the main man of the house. He has to take more responsibility on the thing that goes in his head and now there is more pressure going through him.
Chapter four, "Looking for Work," in Gary Soto's Living Up the Street is interesting. Chango turns 9 years old. Chango's mom was hitting him. She is mean. I like when Gary says, "For weeks I had drunk kool aid and watched morning reruns of Father Knows Best whose family was so uncomplicated in its routine that i very much wanted to imitate it."
In Lou Kirchen opinion piece, "Bullying", from FOX6 WBRC-TV, the author writes a summary about bullying in which he explains that the bullies should be detected since they are little because if not they would become abusive adults. The victims should tell their parents before it gets worse. Lou talks more about prevention.
