“How I Learned about the Power of Writing” by Richard Bullock “How I Learned about the Power of Writing” tells us about the story of Richard Bullock on how he learned how to read as a child. He starts off by telling us about his grandparents moving in with his family when he was little in their house at Willoughby, Ohio. He tells us about his grandmother reading to him classic stories, teaching him how to plant African Violets and teaching him on how to read the time—and because of that, he was motivated to read more only by the age of three. He recalls to us that when he was young, he used to fetch the early paper and read about the case of Dr. Sam Sheppard. Because Bullock's grandmother only received formal education until eighth grade, and his mother a high school graduate, and his father being a high school dropout, he was taught by his grandmother to love learning.

Biography Luis Miguel Valdez was born on June 26, 1940, in Delano, California, the second of ten brothers and sisters. His mother and father were migrant farmworkers, and Luis began working in the fields at the age of six. Because his family traveled to the harvests in the San Joaquin Valley, Luis received little uninterrupted schooling. In an interview, Valdez discussed one significant, and ultimately fortunate, consequence of such a disruptive early life: His family had just finished a cotton harvest; the season had ended, the rains begun, but because their truck had broken down, the family had to stay put. Leaving school one day, Luis realized he had left behind his paper lunch bag, a precious commodity in 1946, given the paper shortages and the family’s poverty.
His father was a rural villager who moved to Alexandria, where he entered the postal service as a minor clerk and where his first son, Gamal, was born. Nasser did not have a normal family life, his mother died when he was eight, his father was transferred, and the young Nasser grew up living with various relatives in Cairo and Alexandria. During his high school years, he was exposed to all the political crosscurrents of the 1930s and, like so many students of his generation, participated in anti-British demonstrations and was wounded during the protests of 1935. The nationalization of the Suez Canal, reforms in the educational and economical fields, and the defiance of Western influence to achieve complete independence made Nasser a dynamic leader and a progressive reformist who inspired and influenced the Arab world in his time period. Nasser was a colonel in the Egyptian army and was the leader of the Egyptian Revolution of 1952 along the first president, Muhammad Naguib, who overthrew the Sudanese and Egyptian monarchies and constituted the republic of Egypt.
