Born as I was into the immediate post-war generation, my thinking on science parallels in many ways the generation as a whole. We came along in the aftermath of the first scientific war – fought between countries with, in many ways, highly-developed technologies, which served to both fuel and end the conflict (Brehm, Kassin, & Fein, 1999, cited in Schneider, Grunman & Coutts, 2005). But then came the first inklings that there was both more and less to science than shiny new machines, even killing machines. The social experiments of Milgram (1965) and the cold behaviorism of Skinner (Operant Conditioning, 2007) surfaced into the popular consciousness, andVIEW DOCUMENT

I always want to be kind and friendly to poor people and make them feel like they have a friend who will help and support them if needed. I think poor people are kind and generous. I previously said that rich people are stingy about their money, but poor people are the exact opposite. Even though they lack money, they usually provide money if someone needs it. This comes from personalexperience and something I will always remember. I had a friend who told me stories of his family living in a car, eating only rice and bread for days but when I did not have money for lunch, he always offered a dollar. That right there is someone who cares moreVIEW DOCUMENT

Buddhism has spread across the entire world. The Buddhist center that I visited was very modern and western. As expressed in DiamondWay, the founder of Diamond Way, Lama Ole Nhydal, sought to communicate the ways of the Buddha to the modern world, especially in western cultures. Lama ole Nhydal is successful in bringing Buddhism to the west by using modern style teaching techniques to educate people of his ancient understanding of Buddhism (DiamondWay).
This experience enhanced my appreciation for Buddhism. It made me realize how versatile this religious faith is and how anyone can be a part of it and become enlightened. While meditation is not an easy practice to do, itVIEW DOCUMENT

When humans reflect on their lives they often categorize things by their location at the time of the event, grouping their college experience separately from their hometown high school experiences. This association with place causes us to view an unwanted movement as an attack on our personal way of living. I first experienced such an affront when I was in the first grade, my family and I moved to a small town about three hours away from San Angelo. My father wanted to be closer to his aunt and uncle so he seemingly forced me and to tag along for the experience. I didn’t want to move away from my grandparents or my friends, the thought alone would cause me to cry. IVIEW DOCUMENT

Have you ever had a moment in time that seems like minutes or hours even though it was only a few seconds? Have you ever seen everything before you play out in slow motion, where you are aware of everything around you, yet not knowing what was going on? I have, and as I look back on it, I feel very blessed and protected. On March 21, 1987, I decided to take a little swim in our swimming pool and almost drowned.

A secret agent. A professional football player. A fire fighter. These would have been my responses when asked that inevitable question, "What do you want to be when you grow up?" Family, Media and Peers are said to have influenced my views concerning the role I am to play society. All of these factors had one thing in common. They all were influencing me to behave according to my gender. Everything from the clothes I wore to the toys I played with contributed to this. Even now as a young adult my dreams and aspirations are built around the gender roles that were placed on me.

I should put the pen to paper and write my place out in history. Everyone has the potential to craft their own tale. But I want to do more than that. I want my story to be remembered throughout history. I want to do something important and meaningful with my life. With the right start I know that I, like everyoneVIEW DOCUMENT

Despite their differences, each English Romantic writer’s personalexperience functioned as a muse for their art at some point, resulting in works that describe observations they made, recall childhood moments, include other writers as either subject or addressee, detail moments of personal discovery and express an appreciation for their surroundings.
In their writing English Romantic authors included observations they made about the world around them. Both of William Blake’s contrasting poems titled “Holy Thursday” reflect his observations of the tradition of poor children marching from charity schools to St. Paul’s Cathedral on Ascension Day.

I believe the author is speaking from experience when telling this story. This story may be the authors depiction of the event of how she remembers it. From the title to the last sentence, Campbell expresses literary devices, natural languages, and involves her personal life into the story making it more than a teenage tale.

These details, the use of personalexperience, humanize each piece and draw the reader into the author’s world.

There were three doctors and two nurses holding tools around me with plastic gloves, white clothing, and a mask covering the mouth and nose. I lied down on the operation bed. The operation started with a few injections on my left hand. After that I couldn't feel any pain on my hand. It was not that my hand is paralyzed, it was that I did not know they are operating my hand or not. I dared not to move my hand to check if I can move my hand or not. I was half asleep through out the operation because it didn't hurt, I couldn't even feel a mosquito bite. It ended in about 30 minutes when I was thinking it is just the start.Because of this operation, I didn't get to play sport for 1 month. If I did play sport, it would swell really badly and would cause great pain. This important experience taught me things are not really what you thought it is.VIEW DOCUMENT

I fleetingly recall being in fourth grade and my teacher, Mr. Pugh, was instructing us how to tell time. The feeling of trying to overcome this hurdle to recognize the “big hand” is for the minutes and the “little hand” correlates with the hours, was such a great feat for a fourth grader. At the time, that felt like such an accomplishment yet there would be many more and greater to come.

Born into a world of contradictory and opposing forces of control, authority, and traditional obligations, a young person does not have the means to make judgments but is swept along on the tide of what others say must be done. If one's heart or conscience cries out for a different course, lack of experience and of developed judgment can be fatal. Role models are required who can model the skills of weighing the pros and cons, of balancing the heart and the head, of inquiring and seeking out knowledge before a final decision is made.
