I’ve never read or heard of a person who appreciates a couple months of living with a killer deasease until I read about Randy Pausch. For example he appreciates his life so much and you can tell by how he carries himself and talks in front of hundreds of people about his pancreatic cancer. He implies “ I’m not in denial I know I’m going to die but why not enjoy today, tomorrow, and the next day ? but as buzz light year would say “not today.” The way I see it Life is full of miricles, happiness, and love. Everyday a new life is born everyday you wake up you’re a lucky person because not everyday everyone wakes up.
Life in Early Jamestown wasn’t so easy for the English colonists, but most of their actions had severe consequences. In the year 1607, it was the season of spring when settlers from England had sailed along the James River in the Chesapeake Bay and had reached the shores of Virginia.

Moving to Indiana has been a real adventure for my family. It was a hard decision but as a family we decided to come to Indiana from West Virginia because my dad and older brother had the opportunity for a job in a factory to work and help support the war effort.

My younger brothers and I help Mama around the farm and I know he really appreciates it.

Leadership. A word that hits close to home and describes my life to a t. Ever since I was a little girl my papaw pushed me to be the best I could be and I never quite understood why. He was always my best friend and someone I could go to for anything. He always expressed leadership throughout his lifetime and it is the one thing I remember most about him. He owned a restaurant and hired immigrants to work just so they had a job and if needed he opened up his home so they had a place to sleep at night.
