5: These Are My People -paragraph My ancestors on my mom's side are from Poland and Germany. They were a part of the Holocaust and survived it. My grandma’s dad died before she was born; he died in World War II. My grandmas step dad basically raised her. My grandma and her husband moved to America after their wedding. My grandpa was in the Military. They’re going to be married for 50 years this year. I play softball and volleyball like my mom did. I have blond hair, like my aunt. I’m shy around people I don't know.
6: Inside Me-Poem I sit in deep thought Searching for answers Ready to give up then I find it: the real me. Including my roller-coaster of My emotions in life There are always going to be Undiscovered answers but I found most. I love being An athletic person. When I swim I hear my body Splashing through the cold water. Feeling drops of water Hit my face. When I play softball all I hear is a cling of A ball against my bat The screaming coaches On the lines anxious Parents in the stands And screaming companies On the field telling You what to do.
7: I have all the emotions on the inside. From having anger problems To crying myself to sleep To loving and caring And just being there for The ones you love And cherish most. Why being in that thought I find the foolish, but unforgettable Memories. From school field trips To the heart of Downtown Denver and Watching a teenager get torn apart By a hobo and just doing the crazy stupid Things kids and teens do. The last answers that are inside me to Finding the real me are my personal features. I've got “train tracks” on my teeth twice and I've got “spiders” on my body and watch the needle Go through my head to stitch me up. I'm a crazy, but one lovable child. That all thats inside me!
8: Against Texting ad Driving- Essay Are Cell Phones Really a Murder Weapon? A husband and wife were in a car driving down the road when a 17 year old smashed in to their car. The 17 year old was on the phone at the time. Lopez, the wife, died at the scene; her husband suffered internal injuries. The couple had two young children, but they were not in the car at the time. Now the two kids are left without their mother. Texting and driving causes crashes and kills people. Another reason that talking on the phone bad is because it's distracting. The final reason is drivers on cell phones are as bad as drunks because they have more chances of getting in crashes. I am against texting, calling, and being on the phone while driving.
9: I am against texting and being on the phone while being behind the wheel. Being on the phone while driving causes crashes, and also kills people. The annual financial toll of cell related to crashes is around 43 billion dollars in damage each year. Cell phones use contributes up to 6% of crashes. When Drivers use phones while driving, drivers are at four times the risk than usually. Six states have bans on texting and driving. A fatal story on how a texter got in a car accident and killed an incent younger adult. Vitoria was on her way home to see her parents for the first time since she moved out to collage. On her way home, she stopped and called her parents and told them she was going to be home any minutes. Vitoria got back on the road and she was hit and killed by another driver who was texting. It was 10:57 at night. Her car flipped and crumbled in to millions of pieces. Victor was 24 years old when she lost her life. Seven states prohibit texting and driving. Three states banned school bus driver from using phones and driving. 38 out of 39 driver are texting or on the phone while driving.
10: Talking on the phone and being behind the wheel is DISTRACTING! Talking on the phone can be dangers! Half of a dozen states banned having any kind of device in the car; and it also can be off-putting. There are too many risks when a cell phone is in the car. Talking on the phone is four times more times to get in a crash. Amanda tells a story about her sister getting hit by a car with a driver who was on the phone when this happened. Amanda shares this story because she wants this story to reach out and touch other people so they won't do that. The car tipped her can and when that happened it killed her sister. It's extremely hard on her mom because she lost one of her daughters and that same day but two year ago her husband died on that same day. Research shows that 37% of people have sent or received text messages while being behind the wheel. 41% of adult driver's use or change GPS settings on their GPS while driving. Also other things that make driving distrustful are one in five drivers style their hair while driving. They are almost as bad as drunk drivers.
11: Driver on cell phone or other devices are as bad as drunks. Psychologists published studies showed that most people who talk on hand free cellular phones are as nearly as bad as drunks. When you're drunk you put yourself and other people at risk when you're drunk. That's the same when you're on the phone. Clearly, people still use phones when their drunk. Using a cell phone is as bad as a 00.08 drunk driver. A husband and wife were on their way home from work the day after Valentine's Day when some person was on the phone and drunk at the same time. The person was going 95 miles per hour and hit and killed the husband. Each year approximately 5,000 young people under the age of 21 die each year. The results are from getting hit by a texting driver, someone on the phone, or a drunken person. 15% of people are on the phone and drunk at the same time and they almost always get in to a fatal crash.
12: Tom Neer, St. Charles County sheriff once said, "If you're driving behind a vehicle, you can't tell if someone is texting or reading a text. If you're alongside of them, you don't view the driver for that long to determine if they are texting or they could very well be dialing a phone number, so you don't know. Imagine how many more people would die from texters. I am opposed to texting and driving. Talking on the phone is distracting! I cause crashes and kills people. Drivers on cell phones are as bad as drunks. That why I am not in favor for texting and driving.
13: Getting stopped for drunk driving in those days might mean that your entire career was over then. Not today. Mark Goddard
14: What Make Me Interesting- Paragraph There are many things that make me interesting. I play so many sports; i play softball, volleyball, and do swim.

I have 4 brothers and sisters and my parents own a farm. Thats where I practice my dirt biking. Softball means a lot to me! Thats basically my life; without it what would I do?

16: The holocaust- Stories Hitler started the Holocaust back in 1941 to 1945. He and the Nazis killed over 11 million people in just four short years. Hitler, who targeted many groups of people to kill, had mainly killed Jews. The Nazi took over 21 countries during World War II. Hitler went for the weaker groups like the mentally and or physically disable. He chose those because he knew that they couldn't fight back when they got arrested. The Nazi took little careless, cute, and crazy children, adults and the elderly. By the time 1945, two out of every three Jews were killed.
17: When people were arrested they were taken on a long train to a concentration camp. They all got on one big train and they couldn't see out the windows, and on tops of that they could have been in the train for days! People died in them. They also went to gas chambers and they were told they were going to take a "shower" and really what it was, was gas coming out. I was their worst night mare. Little children were scared out of their minds. People hid for month even years.Being trap in the train was like being in the concentration camp. Millions of people died. Those were the worst years! This should never happen again.
18: Valentine for Ernest Mann- Expiation In the poem “Valentine for Ernest Mann” by Naomi Shihab Nye, the poet can see beauty everywhere. First, Nye sees that you can call for a poet to write. She writes, “Here's my address write me a poem.” Next, she thinks if we restart or reinvent things we see it different. Nye writes, “Maybe if we reinvent whatever our live gives to us we find poems.” Finally, she thought that the eye to something ugly can be pretty. The poet writes, “I thought they had such beautiful eye.” Clearly, the poet sees things in different ways we do.
19: Esperanza Rising book review -explanation The book that I read was Esperanza Rising by Pam Munaz Ryan. If you want an entreating, problem filling book this is it. It is a great book that any ages would love. the book is about a girl who is turning 15, but then her dad dies the day before she does. Then, their house catches on fire,then they are forced to move out and start over. Right after those to big, terrible tradgie, her mom get super sick and almost dies. Esperanza was almost left with no parents. This book I can sorta relate to because I have lost someone really close to me when I was younger. This would probably be a good book for those who like to read mistorie, death, and or a Mexican book. The best part of the book is when they moved to California. The author really made the book move and make it come alive. The book over all was pretty good. People who liked to me moved, this is your book!

21: Green Green is the color Of freedom, Knowing that you are going to sleep, softly, and safely Wrapped up in your army blanket. The same army that fights for our freedom While wearing those camouflages uniforms. Risking their lives to save and protect our nation Like the helms that they were to protect their head. The nation that is going green. By picking up tons of trash Around the world. Trying to save todays Treasures for tomorrow. Showing that the world loves you And we love the world. Having it say “thank you.” The same world that loves you When you feel no one else does. The ones you love and respect you. Those who guide you through the dark. When the darkness is trying to take you its way. That darkness that shows you the evil side. Showing that life isn't always perfect. But you still try to be the perfect you The you that is always reminded to appreciate Freedom you have and always will. That is what green shows: the real you.
22: Change does not roll in on the wheels of inevitability, but comes through continuous struggle. And so we must straighten our backs and work for our freedom. A man can't ride you unless your back is bent. -Martin Luther King, Jr.
23: But - but the greatest way to witness is by walking that straight and narrow and also realizing that you're going to mess up. That's what grace is for. We're going to fall, but we've got to get back up. And you've got to improve. And that's what I'm all about. -Tim Tebow
24: But if you can find that spot - I suppose it's like running - I used to be a swimmer and swim laps, and you just have to be there with what you're doing. -Bruce Nauman
