Betrayal/Loyalty

Once I was Loyal to my best friend by putting all my trust and belief in him and after that he was always loyal back to me and he has been very special to me ever since. I don't get to see him much but when I do we always sit down and talk about everything that has happen to us in the time we have been away from each other.

My Opinion

We need fast food in schools because kids starve every day because the schools think they are putting good tasting food in the schools when they really aren't.

Julius Caesar Summary

Act 1 Scene 1; [A street in Rome] Murellus engages a cobbler about his profession, the cobbler’s punning replies, Murellus grows angry with him. Flavius interrupts to ask why the cobbler is not in his shop working. The cobbler explains that he is taking a holiday from work to observe the triumph. Murellus scolds the cobbler and attempts to diminish the significance of Caesar’s victory. Scene 2; [A Public Place in Rome] Caesar enters a public square with Antony, Calpurnia, Portia, Decius, Cicero, Brutus, Cassius, Casca, and a Soothsayer. The Soothsayer calls out from the crowd, telling Caesar to beware of the Ides of March (“ides” refers to the fifteenth day of March). Brutus says that he is scared that the people want to make Caesar their king. Scene 3; [One month later in Rome] Casca explains to Cicero that he has seen terrible things in the natural world. Casca wonders if there is strife in heaven or if the gods are angered by mankind. Casca also says that he saw a man with his hands on fire, but his flesh was not burning. Casca tells Cassius that the senators plan to make Caesar king was the following day. Cassius draws his dagger and swears to the gods that if they can make a weak man like Caesar so powerful, then they can empower Cassius to defeat a tyrant. He declares that Rome must be merely trash or rubbish to give itself up so easily to Caesar’s fire. Act 1 Scene 1; [ The ides of March in Brutus’s garden] Brutus paces back and forth in his garden. He asks his servant to bring him a light and mutters to himself that Caesar will have to die. He knows that Caesar will be crowned king. Brutus’s servant brings him a letter that he found close to the window. Brutus reads the letter, it accuses him of sleeping while Rome is threatened: “Brutus, thou sleep’st; awake, and see thyself! Shall Rome, etc. Speak, strike, redress!” “Brutus, thou sleep’st; awake.” Cassius and a group of men called the “the conspirators” come to Brutus’s house and talk about whether they should try to bring the esteemed Cicero into the conspiracy, he would bring good public opinion, but Brutus points out that Cicero would never follow anyone else’s ideas. Brutus says that they would only be sacrificers, and never butchers, to common eyes they should be called purgers, not murderers. Scene 2; [Hours later at Caesar’s House] Caesars wife has had three nightmares calling out about Caesar being murdered. Caesar sends his servant to beg the priest to sacrifice and to come back and tell Caesar the results. Calpurnia insists that Caesar not leave the house after so many bad signs, Caesar refuses to give in to fear and leaves. Scene 3; [ shortly after, in a street near the capitol] Artemidorus comes onstage,reading the letter that he wrote to Caesar to himself, warning him to be carful of Brutus, Casca, and the other conspirators. Scene 4; [ immediately after in another Roman street] Portia sends Brutus’s servant to the Senate to checkout events and report back to her how Caesar is faring. Act 3 Scene 1; [The ides of March at The Capitol of Rome] Artemidorus and the Soothsayer wait for Caesar in the street. Artemidorus goes to Caesar with his letter. Caesar responds, “What touches us ourself shall be last served”.

I Fu Tuan, The City and Human Speech

The Speech and Speak are relative because Melinda had frustration and resentment build up in her because no one would listen to her and sometimes act like they were listening.

Speak

The book Speak is written by Laurie Halse Anderson. This book is about a young girl named Melinda that moves into High School and looses all of her friends from Middle School.

Throughout the story Melinda tells us the first ten lies they tell you in High School, describes the teachers, all the classes she goes through and what she does in them, her homework, all of the holidays and all the clicks.

Valentines Day is here and Heather has put a valentine letter on Melinda’s locker and was saying they couldn’t be friends anymore and Heather gave the necklace back that Melinda gave to her for Christmas. As the story goes on eventually she tells us about “A Night To Remember” the night that changed her life. The reason Rachel (Her Middle School best friend she lost in the transition) does not communicate with her anymore. eventually at the end of the story Melinda finishes her tree and made a A+. She was crying the whole time she was making the tree in Mr. Freeman’s Class and when the bell rang to leave he saw that something was wrong with Melinda so he asked her “You’ve been through a lot haven’t you” her reply was “Let me tell you about it”.

Suicide

I think someone would want to commit suicide because they hate their life. Maybe someone bullied them to the point where they just didn't want to put up with it anymore and kill themselves. I know someone who committed suicide a while back he was not a teenager he was a grown man. He was my uncle and he did it because he couldn't see his wife. He really loved her and never wanted anything to come in between them. To be in the same place with him when he did it was terrifying I was only a little girl and to see something like that scared me for life. I can't stand to see people fight like grown ups or any of my family because it just brings me back to the night. It's really hard to know someone and have that nightmare stick with you for life.

I Have a Dream Too

I have a dream that one day this nation will have respect for everyone black, white, asian, and mexican. I have a dream that one day everyone will be considered equal. I have a dream that one day we will all come together. I have a dream that will overcome all. I have a dream today. I have a dream that one day we will all stand up for each other. I have a dream today. I have a dream that one day everyone will get along. This is my hope and faith. With this faith we will be able to live the life of joyfulness. This will be the day when the sun really does shine brighter. And when this happens, when we let freedom ring, when we let it ring from every village and every hamlet, from every state and every city, we will be able to speed up that day when all of God's children, black men and white men, Jews and Gentiles, Protestants and Catholics, will be able to join hands and sing the words of the old Negro spiritual, "Free at last! Free at last! Thank God Almighty, we are free at last!

Rosa Parks

If I was in Rosa Park's position I would have told the people that I am the same person as they are and they have no right to judge me because of my skin color. I have all the right to be on that bus as they do. They shouldn't be wasting their time in the day judging me or any other black person what is the point that they are trying to get across?

Self- Expression

Self Expression. I express my self in many different ways, like if I'm mad you can tell because if it is something bad that I'm mad over usually my nostrils are flared and my lip sticks out. If the situation isn't that bad then I may not show any anger at all. If I'm in a good mood or happy then I laugh and make jokes all day. When I'm not in a bad mood I'm a great person to be around because I can make you laugh and have a good time together. but if I am in a bad mood you better watch out because you just might get hit.

The Freedom Riders

A group of activist white and black called themselves The Freedom Riders. They traveled by bus through the Deep South where segregation in bus facilities wasn’t just the custom, it was the law. They didn't fight back because they didn't feel like it?
