    You remind me of my dad in the most familiar ways. The way you play Scrabble and even how you write. You are like the medicine prescribed right before the sickness becomes deadly. It’s familiar in the most abnormal way. How I see him in you, but you just the same. I love having you around as...

    You teased me. You beat me. My insides are bruised. I'm wrecked by betrayal. My feelings were used. I escaped from the classroom to the warmth of my room. I could close out your voices playing back in my head. Then I turn on my computer and get on the web. The torture begins the mome...

    Who am I and what is my personality? Why can I be myself in my writing? Am I just a piece of paper? I know what I like and don’t like. Apparently, that doesn’t make the person. I don’t like watching sports or gossips and I love God, writing, and vegetables. I love to dance, but apparent...

    Our new baby country fell apart and blood was shed. The blood of our country men is now scattered as they lay dead. But starting with the passing of Abe Lincoln, a reconstruction has begun. Our new leader Andrew Johnson will lead us on, but no one said it would be fun. We should find hope in a...

    You always have a way to make me smile. You keep annoying me by comparing school work or endless files. Like water and oxygen we just mix. Together there’s nothing we can’t fix. If I asked you to lift a mountain I’m very sure you could. God’s strength in you surpasses giants and I’m ...

    In my squeaky voice I tell you, your mine. There are no rivals in our crazy friends. Our tails forever shall be intertwined. My love towards you forever ascends. I esteem how your gloves are always white. I love how you listen with your big ears. You’re a dazzling light in my cartoon night...

    In Martin Luther King Jr.’s “I have a dream” speech his tone was very much about unity and peace between whites and blacks and freedom for African Americans. He felt that black people should act civilly and should approach the government and their problems with dignity and respect. He stated ...

    There I stood. I was a face amongst a throng of men. I felt the flat, cold concrete of gray beneath my iron shoes. There we were, all dressed in the same outfit. We looked like clones that had come out in different sizes due to some DNA transfer malfunction. I sat on the wooden bench with my back s...

    Telephones, televisions, computers, blenders, and washing machines are all different bodies that house technology. It has become a huge part of the world. I see technology as an invention, just like many others, that has its pros and cons. Technology has corrupted many people’s minds and taken ove...

    Compromise- that thing that says “I’ll give up something and then you’ll give up something and we will drop the issue because we have come to a mutual agreement that gives you some of what you want and I have some of what I want.” The role that compromise played in delaying the Civil War cou...

    There are two extremes that are so different, yet can be separated by such a thin line. They are marked by beliefs held true under two words, martyr and terrorist. Both end up dying and they are both very zealous and passionate about a certain cause. Martyrdom is often associated with religion and d...

    I think that it is EXTREMLY important for students to learn about propaganda. We need to know what is really going on in our nation and why. Even though propaganda almost totally influences our money spending, it even more influences our country decisions. This is scary because we seem to all be “...

    Dear Journal, 1/25/11 I had a school lesson today about hard times, Martin Luther King Jr.’s speech, and I had to ask myself questions such as, “what I would be willing to give up to achieve something that meant something to me?” There are many things I would do and wouldn’t do in ...

    Great intentions don’t always reflect in the actions. If the great intentions aren’t reflected in the actions they are not received by those being effected by them. This was the case with the Indian Removal Act of 1830. What happened with the Native Americans was immoral. It violated their polit...

    Dear my wonderful wife and three beautiful children, How are things there? I miss you all SO much!! I always have your picture with me and think about you all the time. Just remember that unless I am fighting we would have no hope of freedom. We can’t all ask why can’t the other men fight,...

    July 11, 1850 Hello Journal, I am sorry that I have neglected your pages for two days. This American dream, to have everyone live fuller and richer lives, seems harder to reach every day. I refuse to give up. I have a plan for the future. I have been away from my Jamie for months now and I will...

    Dear Governor of Florida, Word has reached my high school ears with a tremendous idea. I have heard that it is becoming mandatory that all high school students must complete 10-15 hours of community service each week in addition to our rather busy, but youthful lives. I must commend you if you a...

    Dear President, Allow me to introduce myself. I am Ankti Fox. I will be straightforward and say that this letter is to request an apology and reparations for the consequences of Manifest Destiny. The government you now serve massacred many of my people. You took away our land and stuck us with th...

    My lowly servant Creon, How small you are. Even to be squashed under the smallest of my toes. You are like sand compared to my shining immortality. To not see you spend every moment devoting yourself to me is incredibly foolish. Is this not what you want from your people? Yet you are not even a 1...

    The late 1800s and early 1900s in the United States were marked by many things. Two of the big trademarks were Imperialism and Expansionism. Expansionism was simply the expanding of the country. This was happening in many countries at the time. It was almost like a giant competition. Imperialism on ...

    There she stands. Silently crying on the inside. They hugged her. Talked to her. Thier questions were silent. The hugs weren't long enough. She is alone. There she sits. Contemplating death. How is that contemplated? Her eyes are open, but her heart is closed. She feels d...
