No matter what this women I have heard of never complained or wished for something else. Gratitude was always shown from her and was never mistaken. Because of her children she had that hope because she knew that they were everything.

The Worst Day of My Life
It was the worst day of my life. I really had no attention of getting caught but unfortunately it was one of my unlucky days.
The morning of July 16th was sunny and clear in New Delhi, the sun was glowing on his full height; the school ground was full of grade seven kids running around and playing soccer. Me and my other grade eight friends were there too sitting by the soccer ground on a shiny green grass and enjoying the hot sunny day of July 16th.

the night. The evening breeze hit my small body, sending shivers up my back. I instantaneously missed the warm feeling of the house, heated by the blazing kitchen stove. I hurried down the hill toward the warmth of my own house. As I walked the short distance, my eyes rested on the branches of the many evergreen trees along the path. My mind focused on my proposal, and my life to come with my fiancee.A smile formed on my face again, and the skip returned to my step. Opening the door to my house the bright cheery light hit my face, I gleefully walked over to the phone and picked up the receiver and dialed. Waiting for the other end of the phone to be answered, my day ended just as it began, on the phone.

I don't even try to fight the darkness, I just let it take over my body.Voices. Lots of voices, crying, yelling. I try to understand what they are saying but it is a jumbled mess, incomprehensible to me. I drift back into the shadows of my mind.I'm lying on something soft. I open my heavy eyelids to see where I am. Immediately light blasts in, blinding me, returning me to reality. I listen to the sounds around me.

Culture and society of the present day is best revealed through the reading of books. There are so many types of books that are available to everyone no matter their race, income or religion. The only way that books may not reach someone is if they are illiterate but there are books on tape that are also available. Some types of books are self-help, religious, biographical, autobiographical, non-fiction and fiction. One of the best examples of a single book that represents the culture and society of the day is Skipping Christmas by John Grisham.This particular book exposes society's need to follow the norms and to conform to the popular rituals.

Around six years ago I remember my parents encouraging me to play ice hockey. It was my first time on the ice and I had a bit of trouble getting started, but as I played more I began to love the sport and I just couldn't get enough of it, now it has become a significant part of my life. In this essay I will reflect upon a very important and exciting ice-hockey game that took place a while ago, and in which I took part.Every single chair in the arena had been filled. From the changing-room it was difficult to describe the noise; fans cheering wildly for their team, coaches drilling the game-plan into our heads, the booming music intended to entertain the fans before the game...all adding to

being told to stay in bed, he laid there and pouted. The pouting ended and he started to fight his sleep. Erick rolled around his bed and pulled his covers on and off. His eyelids closed for a minute and just when I thought he was asleep, they opened and he sat up and then lay back down again. The rolling around started again and then his eyes finally closed for good. Watching Erick sleep I lost all track of time, watching his chest rise and fall with each breath while noticing that every once in awhile his eye lids would flutter.Through out the day I observed my child in a way that I never really have before. I saw life through my son's eyes and realized that children pay more attention to detail.

Living life virtuously is merely living life with a purpose and in this case it is for the sake of happiness. Aristotle expresses three types of life which he believes to be virtuous: political life: honor, pleasurable life: appetitive and contemplative life: wisdom. The life of contemplation is seen as the best life by Aristotle; this paper will examine his reasons for believing that it is the best, through his convincing arguments.

The novel One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich is obviously intentionally not written as a sensational story. It concentrates on one man, Ivan Denisovich Shukhov, as he attempts to survive another day in a Soviet concentration camp with dignity and humanity. One would think that since it was written during a time of turmoil and oppression it would be a political indictment, however I found it to be more than that. Its power derives from its depiction of a man retaining his humanity under inhumane conditions. All through this novel, the theme of human survival is present. My definition of survival is successfully making it through a certain circumstance. Solzhenitsyn uses

The author, Solzhenitsyn, portrays the Baptist as a dedicated and extraordinarily persevering character. In a novel about a Russian forced labor camp, Alyoshka represents the strength of the human spirit conquering the hardships by focusing on the health of the soul rather than secular issues. Alyoshka has a few traits that make him seem above the effects of camp life, they include, overwhelming inner peace

Survival in ?One day in the life of Ivan Denisovich? The main theme of the novel, ?One day in the life of Ivan Denisovich? by Alexander Solzhenitsyn is that of basic human survival. As early as the second page of the novel, Solzhenitsyn already writes the following statement: ?Here, lads, we live by the law of the taiga. But even here people manage to live. D?you know who are the ones the camps finish off? Those who lick other men?s leftovers, those who set store by the doctors, and those who peach on their mates.? This statement is of great significance and is reiterated several times during the course of the novel. I think writing about survival is a way in which Solzhenitsyn expresses

Sharp, jagged pain rips through my head like a bolt of lightning. I sit up suddenly and clutch my head in agony. An incorporeal thumbtack pierces my eye from behind, sending malevolent flames of hate up and down my body. I fling my head left and right, up and down, back and forth, like a fish fighting it's fate at the hands of the fisherman... then everything is still once more. I wipe sweat from my brow and bring the glistening hand to my weary eyes. I am not surprised to see wet clumps of hair clinging to my fingers. I must have yanked them out while writhing again.
This is how every morning starts.
