They start from the day a Cherokee is born to the day they pass away. When a new Cherokee was born in a family, there was a ceremony typically performed within seven days of birth. The child is taken to a running body of water and the seven places ceremonially washed with water. It is very common for the maternal grandmother to name all of her grandchildren with Cherokee names.

After graduation, between practicing and performing research, Shouldice became interested in early-ambulation. Heskett (2003) says that this “stemmed, in part, from an operation he performed in 1932 to remove the appendix from a seven-year-old girl and the girl’s subsequent refusal to stay in bed” (p. 1). The Shouldice Hospital website still boasts of this early identifier by stating: “Shouldice pioneered the concept of early ambulation, which is now a standard procedure in modern medical care. Early ambulation means that patients are encouraged to get up and start moving around as soon as possible after surgery” (Shouldice Hospital, n.d.). This early discovery led to what is now recognized as the Shouldice Method across the globe.
NICU is a neonatal intensive care unit, which cares for babies from birth to possible two years of age. I would find a NICU in a children’s hospital or even possibly a regular hospital. The reason I want to be a NICU nurse is because my little cousin, Joseph, was born prematurely in May of 2004. My parents and I went to visit him and this made me realize how fragile life really is. Since then, God has placed a desire in my heart to become a NICU nurse.

Butler was born and raised in Pasadena, California. Since her father Laurice, a shoe shiner, died when she was a baby, Butler was raised by her grandmother and her mother (Octavia M. Butler) who worked as a maid in order to support the family. Butler grew up in a struggling, racially mixed neighborhood.
Introduction to Simone de Beauvoir’s ‘The Second Sex’ In 1946, Simone de Beauvoir began to outline what she thought would be an autobiographical essay explaining why, when she had tried to define herself, the first sentence that came to mind was “I am a woman.” That October, my maiden aunt, Beauvoir’s contemporary, came to visit me in the hospital nursery. I was a day old, and she found a little tag on my bassinet that announced, “It’s a Girl!” In the next bassinet was another newborn (“a lot punier,” she recalled), whose little tag announced, “I’m a Boy!” There we lay, innocent of a distinction — between a female object and a male subject — that would shape our destinies. It would also shape Beauvoir’s great treatise on the subject. Beauvoir was then a thirty-eight-year-old public intellectual who had been enfranchised for only a year. Legal birth control would be denied to French women until 1967, and legal abortion, until 1975.

During pregnancy ceremonies are held to ensure the welfare of the mother as well as the growing child. When the child is born, a number of rituals are performed. These rituals include the first visit outside to a temple, the first feeding with solid food, an ear-piercing ceremony, the first haircut, etc. Generally, shaving the child's head for the first time is done at some religious places and the first hair is offered to a deity. Mantras are chanted on all these occasions.
It’s a means to communicate values, beliefs and customs. It has an important social function and it promotes feelings of group identity and solidarity. It is how culture and its’ traditions and values may be transferred and preserved. Language is a complicated dance between internal and external analysis of our identity. Our external identity is genetically passed down from our parents and is basically what you see on the outside in terms of gender, hair and eye color and so on.
