Life will always have ups and downs, peaks and valleys that make up the journey. There will be good and bad, happiness and sadness in every life, despite the lifestyle choices made. It is clear that many choices and options are available to help people deal with these events, before and during their occurrence.

For some people my age, it was hard for them to want to go to church and Sunday school. It was never a problem for me. I always really enjoyed learning about God and deepening my spiritual understanding. I am here today a 19 year old Confirmed Catholic, the only one out of my immediate family. I made the choice on my own and will always stick by it and be glad and grateful that I did.
The first half was tough as there were a lot of definitions that contradicted each other in the two classes. But I am very happy to have had these courses together the classes started to come together in the end and they gave me a better understanding of the value of Christianity.

Martin Luther King, Jr. was a man of high morals, a preacher, and a human being who would not bow his head in apathy, or silence his voice while this nation strayed away from reverence for justice and the respect of human life. Martin Luther King was a man without restrictions instead of waiting around for change he got himself out there and worked to free himself along with his people, he wanted to free himself and the others from the bounds and chains of the unjust authority. Martin Luther King called out to the right minded people “Now is the time to stand as tall proud unfettered men and it is time to cast off the shackles of oppression and go forth into the light of freedom.” (Reality Magazine 1996-2006) Simply because of the actions of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. our entire world has benefited from his strength and trying efforts, because of his outstanding leadership which brought out hope and determination for change to millions people.
The Jesuits illustrated in the book Brokers of Culture were involved in many missions worldwide. Although the Jesuits were confronted with many obstacles they approached the situation with open arms in every possible situation.

And in this case, I believe that Ellen DeGeneres deserve recognition. Ellen DeGeneres, also referred to as simply Ellen, is not only a daytime talk show hostess who makes her audience throw their heads back in laughter, but also a remarkable human being who uses her celebrity success to make the world a better place. Ellen invests whatever is necessary to heal the hurts of others who have been affected by the loss of a family member, a home or someone who suffers with an illness or economic problems.
From coloring to lesson plans, I enjoy it all. Working with children is what I look most forward to. I work well with them, and I love showing them how to do new things. For some reason, children are also drawn to me. Throughout my twelve years of school there have been four teachers that have really stood out to me, and I hope to impact my students’ lives as much as they have mine.
