I have broadened my research topic so that I am studying how Christian religious orders impacted European history. However, I may just look at the influence of the Order of St. John, as I found several relevant sources regarding their actions through the EBSCO database. This is some of the information I located.
This is a story about normal day soldiers just in their base waiting and suppling people on the battlefield. When they are attacked by another party. the ending shows how they act when they are sent to the place above/below. Although they died they, died together and that is a friendship.
I am proud of how it came out and how it works it is also a story that i like.
I could improve on the timing just a bit and make it a bit more realistic. Maybe change the looks of the characters.
In February of 2011, Syria's nightmare slowly started. Rumors say that it all began when people did graffiti on a wall in the southwest city of Daraa.
Beginning in 2006 and not ending until about 2011, Syria witnessed the worse drought ever in record. Nearly 85% of their livestock died, fields withered away, and their president offered little to no help.
America has a surprising amount of dystopian traits that are similar to Suzanne Collin's Hunger Games trilogy. The worlds of America and Panem are not as different as it seems, both possessing a plethora of dystopian characteristics.
Refugee Justice and Why We Should Get Involved
Refugees from all over, mostly Syria as of right now, are facing a serious crisis. There is no justice for them. Their own president is torturing them so bad to the point that the Syrians are risking their lives and doing whatever they can just to seek justice.
This new, updated information may help many decide whether or not we should get involved and help, or if we should mind our own business and help OUR people first.

Diversity, should we celebrate it, or should we hide it? I know that there are many people who believe that diversity and culture should be celebrated and I am someone who believes that. I also believe that culture is not just where you come from, but it is also all of your life experiences. I believe culture should be celebrated because we can learn a lot from each other. Each person has their own culture and their culture can contribute to society, and make it better. There are also people who believe that culture should be ignored, and I can see how this could be a valid viewpoint.
While doing research on tweeter I found a BBC story that is shocking and intriguing. Russian networks had been reporting on a story that a 10-year-old girl was killed in Ukraine by a Ukrainian government shelling in the rebel held part of Ukraine. A reporter named Natalia Antelava went to Ukraine to find out more and discovered that the girl never existed. Russian reporters were told to report this but there is no evidence of proof that the girl was real.
Many have heard of what Doctors Without Borders, or Medecins Sans Frontieres, does through sending doctors abroad to war-torn areas, but some may not know of their efforts to advocate for certain groups of people in need of help to get larger organizations as well as governments involved. While searching twitter, I came across this news story on migrants dying as a result of their effort to escape war.
For those who don't know Rules of Engagement are defined as rules that allow military personnel to act violently on an enemy for a certain justified reason. By enforcing these rules the deaths of civilians and innocents is trying to be avoided. Rules of Engagement are also commonly referred to as ROE.
The exact date when blood diamond mining began is unknown. However, the international community became aware not long after the civil war in Sierra Leone and Angola in the 1990's, due to it's manipulation of the practice to further war efforts. After Angola's cease fire after trying to gain independence from Portugal, an election took place. Once the candidate the rebel group supported was defeated, the rebel group waged war on the government, controlling a majority of the country's mines in the process. This group was called the National Union for the Total Independence of Angola (UNITA).
He was about to push me off, then I rolled to my left and got up and quickly grabbed him. Boom, boom. I gave him two quick blows to the face and now it was my turn. I pushed him up against the rail and then he pushed me off him again and he punched me in my jaw. But I was too fast. He came in for another punch but I blocked it with my left arm and kicked him, and Ajai’s body fell of the edge of the building. It was over, it was all over at last. Then I fell to the ground.
Listverse.com, linked below, makes a case for the top ten special forces around the world. All of these forces emphasize both hand to hand and military combat, and many of these forces train in specific martial arts to make them more effective fighters.
Rules of Engagement are defined as rules that allow U.S. Military Personnel to act violently on an enemy for a certain justified reason. By enforcing these rules the deaths of civilians and innocents is supposed to be limited. I find it interesting to find very different views on the Rules of Engagement.
This story is about my father. He was born in Lebanon and lived in Lebanon until the age of twenty years old. He had gone to a farmer’s market of sorts near Beirut, Lebanon, when a group of Israeli soldiers came and attacked the market. My father had to run to a store near the market to seek cover. The people who were not lucky enough to get into the shops were heard screaming and pleading with the soldiers outside. My father heard many people die that day. When the solders left, bodies and blood was everywhere.

Jihadi John is the nickname coined for the man behind many ISIS executions. He became notorious for his beheading videos that went viral. The world was shown the gruesome killings of innocent journalists and civilians. The world raced to figure out who the man behind the black mask and British accent was to try and deter him from more injustice. His name is Mohammed Emwazi. Officials believe he was educated in Great Britain and had always been an extremist before deciding to travel to Syria to join up in the ranks of ISIS. The article can be found
Recently the fighting in Ukraine came to a temporary pause as the Ukrainian government and pro-Russian separatist rebels agreed to come to a cease fire. They took the time to clean up the bodies and some of the masses of debris that had accumulated over the past months of non-stop gunfire and attack by the opposing sides. The Ukrainian army commander didn't wish to pull back any large weapons as they were unsure if the cease fire would hold up for very long, but both sides were giving respect to the other and allowing them to bury some of the hundreds of dead soldiers and civilians.
I've just started reading the book called Number the Stars by Lois Lowry, and it’s very interesting and breathtaking so far.
It’s about a ten-year-old girl named Annemarie Johansen, who tries everything to save her Jewish best friend Ellen, when the Nazis decided to relocate all the Jews. They must find strength and courage in order to survive because there’s no turning back now.
This book clearly shows what real love and best friend is, and what they do for each other in order to stay inseparable.
This book's content was quite a surprise to me. I thought this would be about military personal talking about their day to day life and how real life combat is, to get us to see that the military is an honorable place, but I didn't really get that from this book The book starts out talking about how the military almost owns your life if you join and about how recruiters are very aggressive. Then it goes on to talk about how people don't fight for their country, but for benefits for themselves. In a way he was almost insulting the military, something I didn't expect from a veteran of war.
Soldier’s Home by Ernest Hemingway is about a soldier named Harold Krebs who comes home to a place he felt he no longer belonged in, and rather than accepting him for his new self after the war, everyone wanted him the way he was before. They expected the same person to return, because after all, they were the same people as when he left. He returns many years after the First World War, and struggles with re-integrating himself into a post-war society. I've been wondering if Hemingway wrote this short story using Krebs’ life as a replica of his own.

This book seriously changed my views of the world. It's such a beautiful yet heartbreaking story. It resembles childhood, friendships, coming of age, guilt, honor, and redemption. Our narrator, Amir, tells us the story of how he came to be the man he is today. Amir was born in Kabul, Afghanistan, early 1960s. His mother died during childbirth, and Amir thinks his dad (Baba) hates him for taking away his beautiful wife. Amir's best and only friend, Hassan, is only a year younger. Hassan's dad is Amir and Baba's servant.
This book is about a Jewish girl who was in hiding with her family during World War 2 to avoid the Nazis. I highly recommend this book because it gives you a person’s point of view of how things were during those times and I like how Anne Frank wrote a diary about how things were during those times and how challenging it ws for the Frank family and the Vaan Daan family living in a small apartment hiding and sneaking food and water to survive the horrible war that was going on.
In Paul Salopek dispatch, "Bang" from National Geographic (http://nowcomment.com/documents/29196), the author is showing us how people in Palestine live, and how the Palestinians, especially the children are so used to the gunfire and the war. When Salopek is in a "a small Palestinian village called Nabi Salih," he describes how the violence breaks out:
