Hurricane Sandy caused unprecedented devastation throughout the northeast, earning
names such as “Superstorm” and “Frankenstorm.” New York and New Jersey were hit the
hardest, being forced to spend over $50 billion in damages. The hurricane sent shockwaves
across the region, killing one h...
Mitt Romney’s plans for office sound very appealing. Promises of lower taxes, more jobs, and reduced government debt are always pleasant to hear from prospective leaders of the United States. Criticizing the incumbent president is not difficult and can usually come without a cost for the candidate...
A small, white flower in the moonlight,
A little speck among the grasses,
It glistened by the riverside
A tiny piece of pure white gold.
Nature embraced it,
The wind blew it a goodbye,
The rain adorned it with silver liquid.
It sung a melody,
Reminding oak trees of the days o...
Silence predominates the room, sending a piercing shot to the heart.
Only the scratch of pen against paper is heard, engraving fate into history
With ink composed of blood, and paper made of human flesh.
One soul engraved into the paper.
And one black heart the reason for the red bold wo...
My name in Hebrew means salvation. It is the name of the second leader of the Jewish people in the Torah. Yehoshua, yes this was his name. It sounds to me like a sweet tasting river full of silvery silk flowing endlessly, smooth to the touch, creating a harmonious melody. Like a small s...
The promised land of the Jews since biblical times was always Israel. After the Holocaust, the Jewish people finally got their land back after two thousand years of not having their own country. Suddenly, a group of Arab-Muslims, calling themselves Palestinians decided to proclaim that Israel is act...
Mr. Speaker, Mr. Vice President, members of congress, and cherished citizens of the United States: I do not come to speak to you today about the achievements and accomplishments of our people. I have come here today to declare my future goals of our country, and propose some resolutions to the probl...
From dusty sorrows Jews have suffered,
Before they got their sacred scrolls,
From constant hopes to see tomorrow
Their Jewish spirits lived, and wept.
Until our God among the skies
Had called upon the Jewish souls,
And when they were by Har Sinai,
And in their hearts, the Torah kept....
Hello, my name is Joshua. I would like to talk to you about the economic situation in America. The U.S. has not been developing its industrial growth. Rather, the U.S. industry has been declining. I think I know a couple of things that will help boost the economy. First of all, America needs to sto...
The flowers the wonder the greatness of them.
The kindness of flowers beyond explanation.
Look is a rose, it is not
Sharpening the eyes glistening in sunlight.
Making golden sparkles drop from the sky....
Summer In the air,
Birds singing beautifully flapping their wings as they come from migration.
Summer in the air,
Sun rising reflecting rainwater left from spring in you eyes.
Summer in the air,
Ducks and swans swimming across their pond proudly.
Summer in the air,
Boys and girl...
During the past few months, there has been a disagreement about building a Mosque near Ground Zero. Both President Obama and Mayor Bloomberg have agreed to this proposal. However, not everyone is in full agreement. A lot of people across the United States oppose the plan. I also do not fully agree w...
It is quite interesting that that the Depression actually started in the North-East. On October 24 1929(known as Black Thursday), prices on the New York stock exchange crashed, and investors lost huge amounts of money. This started The Great Depression. In this paper I will explain an interesting v...
I think that the U.S. should give help and support to Israel, because Israel is suffering from terrorism. Israel doesn’t have a lot of money, space, or power to control terrorist territories that are much bigger, more powerful, and extremely aggressive.
The U.S needs to help other countries. T...
