In Cambodia, through the scenario living off in a rural village area, a 36 year old named Pov Sovann is accused of killing people of black magic. There were around 200 people approaching him outside his house with wooden sticks and stones yelling at him. They all believed that he intentionally brought death upon six families in the village over the past two years with no prior history of diseases. Furthermore, Sovann was being accused of being a witch because of the women in the corpse that had centipedes roaming around her body is a sign of a curse.

Ask yourself, will you ever value something destroyed or what caused it to be destroyed?
Out of seven billion people living in this planet, nine hundred million are believers of Hinduism. To believe in Hinduism, is the believe that one supreme god has created many gods and given them power to rule.
For my research, I wanted to deepen my knowledge into the believing and understanding of one of the most important gods, Lord Shiva. Lord Shiva is the quintessential destroyer who is responsible in destroying every creation at the end of time.
My Senior Research Project is about the Unaccompanied Minor’s and how they should be treated humanely. So far, I have managed to complete my process journals and have managed to continue learning about my topic. I feel good about my topic because it’s an interest of mine and as I have previously stated, immigration is significant in my life.
What I think about my book so far is that its a good book to inspire kids to never give up on your dream and dream big.The main character in the book million dollar shot Eddie is kinda bad at basketball.He tries to make this shot to win million dollars to prove hes good at basketball.
To feel loved and secure (1)
In the arms of your love one,
To smile and laugh
Till the game of love is done.
Then to sit down and not think (5)
In your beloved arms
While the day ends slowly,
Young like me--
That is my hope!
To feel loved and secure (10)
In front of your love one,
Smile! Laugh! Giggle!
Till the face of love is done.
Sit down and not think for a second…
A picture of mystery… (15)
Night coming to an end
Little like me.
What happens to hope deferred?
Does it make your heart bright,
like the sunlight?
or burn to ashes
like a hopeless fire?
Does it need to be brought back to life
like a new fire dancing in the night
Maybe it just exists
like something that doesn't live
Something’s been bugging me since I last read Birthright. In the beginning few chapters of the book, Superman is portrayed with a regular average human sized stature, but his entire torso is designed to look like he actively engages in intense physical workouts regularly. But, two chapters later, Superman is shown to have a massive torso that completely dwarfs his arms, which were relative to his chest earlier. And he’s only 25. His Superman debut makes him look like his body grew and matured 10 years in less than a month, within the narrative.
Since its detonation in 1945, controversy has surrounded the American decision to drop the atomic bomb at the end of World War II. By exploring the basic moral integrity regarding the detonation of the atomic bomb unto the Japanese cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, it can be said that there is more to the story than there first appears. The primary goal, however, isn't to sway the reader to believe that the bomb's detonation was right or wrong, but rather to help one discover and be well-versed on a topic so an education opinion can be made.
To have a heart that burns a fire so bright
It outshines the galaxies' greatest stars
To live in awe of the simplest things
To dream of free life
With no stress
With no wars
To reach every goal,peak upon peak
In hope of one day being set free
To be free to dream whatever,whenever
To be who I want to be
Oh how I wish I could escape the wrath
Of that dark aura here on earth
To be bold,or to be shy
Simply to be
For where the pastures are greener lies my hope
Where the pastures are greener lies my destiny
Where the pastures are greener lies my fulfillment
I fought back these thoughts
My mind numb, I felt all sorts
Of emotions, with all of the commotions
Going on around me.
Feeling helpless but not hopeless
because I had lights
And my family was okay,
but that was not enough for me,
looking at the aftermath of the devastation today
Caused by Sandy,
I was in a mourning state
Of misery, feeling thankful
Asking why not me nor my family.
It is individuals and families who are caught in between
I’m feeling all kinds of rage, I’m sure you know what I mean.
It does not discriminate; it’s not a white or black thing.
Sandy has no discretion, I reckon not even praying
Could have stop Mother Nature from showing us who has the power.
I am a resident of the Bronx and
I saw destruction and power lines down,
and looking at the news and seeing the faces in the many places
That are no longer around
Our Neighborhoods and
Sandy has taken down towns.
Watching the news last night made me wonder,
think, be thankful but yet somewhat somber
We must come together to help our neighbors.
In the famous words of Malcolm X “By Any Means Necessary.”
I care and no one should ever forget what we can do as a people
If we lean on each other.
I know it’s overwhelming to think about the amount of work
that needs to be done,
to put things right of course it’s not fun,
but I am awed by peoples resiliency
in the face of circumstances as
they put back the pieces.
Helpless but not Hopeless.
My tears are not of sorrow,
they are of wonder and admiration for tomorrow.
Many will unselfishly give
even if they have to beg and borrow.
Helpless but not Hopeless

I like Wonder by R.J Palacio. It’s about a protagonist, August, who was born with a face deformity. The problem driving the plot is person vs society. What i mean is that August faces many challenges because of his deformity. The people around him make him feel abnormal and self-contouse.
I finished "The Fault In Our Stars," by John Green. It was about a girl named Hazel, who is battling cancer that is at bay most of the time. She meets a boy named Augustus and she falls in love with him. It is all going very nicely, until he tells her that he has cancer all over his body and is probably going to die. When he does, Hazel must learn to cope and move on with her life. A lot of other stuff also happens in the book, but this is the most important aspect of it.
This is absolute favorite book ever, right along with John Green books, it was so relatable and I loved it so much that it hurts. The main character, Charlie begins his freshman year apprehensive and hesitant as a result of the death of his only good friend Michael. Michael committed suicide several months before while they were still in middle school. Charlie does not feel that he can lean on his parents or older siblings for support, because they never truly understood him.
Bono may be better known for his work as the rockin U2 singer, but not many know his involvement as a humanitarian. Simply referred to as “the celebrity who keeps on giving,” he is a hero on and off the stages. In U2’s most recent concerts, Bono highlights the issues we have in our world. “Every time I clap my hands,” he says to the audience, “A child in Africa dies.”
In my free time I like to go on tumblr,a social media website where you can express yourself and on my dash, that shows what the people I follow like I noticed some quotes that sounded like they came from John Green books. So I searched them up on google and found out it was indeed a book written by him, it is his fourth book and was released in January 2012. I am very fond of "growing up" books because the characters are my age and I can relate to challenges and problems they deal with as teenagers.
My post is about character issues. It is meant to encourage anyone who stumbles across it to think about the positive character traits we admire and to consider how to respond when challenged with moral questions.
