Suffice to say my lethargy had grown since I left the plane, just over two hours ago. The tour bus, no matter how glamorous it was inside, wasn't travelling in a straight line; so badly I was beginning to think the driver might have had a (rather large) mini bar session before we landed. Alex hadn't drunk as much as I'd expected him to - instead he sat reading his book with the unnecessarily long title. Of course, Miles- who was still recovering from his post-cannabis blues - had downed at least 4 of those crappy, brightly coloured shots. Nick was on the cans of Bud Light.
One day, the woods where they lived was drought for a long time so all plants and vegetable faded and springs were dry and exhausted. There was no food for the animals to eat so they had to move to other place to look for food. They went for a long time but unluckily, they could not find anything to eat. They felt so tired and exhausted. The tiger could not control his hunger.
losses. The Japanese lost 65 servicemen, 39 aircraft and 5 midget submarines. Sadly this attack was unforeseeable because it happened on a Sunday morning when many soldiers were still asleep completely unaware and off guard of the devastation that happened. As previously stated, in just under two hours after the attack had begun, the Japanese planes left Pearl Harbor and headed back to their aircraft carriers. The attack on Pearl Harbor was over The facts leading up to the attack were as follows.
“Doodle said he was too tired to swim, so we got into a skiff and floated down the creek with the tide. Far off the in the marsh a rail was scolding, and over on the beach locusts were singing in the myrtle trees. Doodle did not speak and kept his head turned away, letting one hand trail limply in the water.” (Pg. 9) Towards the end of the summer Doodle became very ill, but his brother did not give up on him. The day the Scarlet Ibis showed up at their house Doodle died from being pushed to the limit of no end.
The jetliner had been scheduled to depart at 8:10 A.M., but did not leave until 8:20. Later, investigators discovered that three of the hijackers had been stopped before they boarded the flight because they failed the metal detector screening. Inexplicably, after a slight delay, they were allowed to board. (One Day in History:September 11, 2001 14-15) Investigators estimate that Flight 77 was probably hijacked between 8:51 and 8:54 by Khalid Almindar, Majed Moged and suicide pilot Hani Hamjour. By 8:56 the pilots had broadcast their last communication to air traffic control, the flight had turned around, and the transponder had been disabled.
She was nerves about getting on the plane she said before getting on the plane “I hate this plane it's so small." A friend of hers made a last minute retreat that saved his life. He stayed the remaining day, instead of chartering the plane. She called her mother, Diane. Her mom said that maybe she shouldn't go, but Aaliyah said it's really short - its only from the Bahamas to Miami.
A month passed and they were finally in Independence, Missouri. Unfortunately, this was also where Patty’s grandmother died and was buried. When the group was crossing the Great Salt Desert the children weeped and groaned for water. The sun was bright and scorching. They spent days and days walking in the hot sun without any water.
An example of some of the things that George Henderson says in his paper about poverty is, “Poverty is staying up all night on' cold nights to watch the fire knowing one spark on the newspaper covering the walls means you’re sleeping child dies in flames. In summer poverty is watching gnats and flies devour your baby's tears when he cries.” In the novel Enrique’s Journey, by Sonia Nazario poverty is everywhere, some places are just worse than others like families living in shacks, only being able to eat one meal a day. These authors and others are pointing out an indisputable fact. Poverty is everywhere and everyone needs to be doing something about it. Sonia Nazario describes a very graphic picture of children without one or any parents, food, shelter, and clothing, which many Americans choose to ignore and go about their business like it doesn’t happen here and around the world.
Captain Laureano Caviedes and first officer Mauricio Klotz were flying from Medellin, Colombia to New York City’s JFK. The weather was bad, the captain was tired, and the flight was held up by Air Traffic Control (ATC) three times, which added 77 minutes of flight time. When the plane was finally cleared to land, the pilots were flying into a headwind, so they had to increase their power. Right before landing, the headwind dropped dramatically, and the plane was overshooting the runway. The autopilot wasn’t working that day so the pilot pulled up with the intention of circling around and trying the landing again.
I spent months in the belly of the ship, sleeping on narrow bunks stacked three high. The food was horrible, barely warm soup, boiled potatoes, and stringy beef, but at least we ate. My mother would take us on deck to wash our hair, that was the only fresh air and sunshine we would see. The storms that whipped up on the ocean made me ill, rocking the ship to and fro. I was very happy to see the statue upon arriving at Ellis Island.
