I truly wish I could bring staff sergeant Garcia back to life so that you guys could enjoy the presence of him. I know saying I’m sorry can never restore his life or make your family whole again. However, I believe in the power of atonement, and I have taken responsibility for the taking of staff sergeant Garcias life. I hope at some point that you and your family can find it in your spirit to forgive me. I am deeply sorry for what has happened. I wish I had words to comfort and sustain you in your grief, but I know there are none that will take away any pain you are feeling now. My heart aches for you and your family.

Every time I think back to that fateful night, I found myself asking the question, “Why didn’t I just bring the fucking discriminators?” Its hard to find the right words to express how deeply remorseful I am for causing staff sergeant Garcias death. Somehow saying I’m sorry for robbing your family of life seems too small of a gesture. Today, when I look back, I wish I could change the past. I wish I would have never have forgotten the M240 discriminators. I wish I would have remembered them. More than anything, I wish I could restore staff sergeant Garcias life so that you his family could enjoy his company.

I regret nothing more in life than what I have done to you and your family. It was wrong, stupid and immature and you do not deserve any of the grief and anger I have caused you. Words will never fully express how sorry I am, but I truly hope that it is a good start. While I cannot alter what has happened, I will make sure that similar incidents and will not occur in the future. I know that an apology will not be enough to make this better, but I want you to understand how sorry I am that I hurt you and your family. I know that what i have done has had a profound effect on your life and I'm sorry.

Although words seem useless now in the middle of your soadness, they are all I have to give you. My actions have been haunting, my actions were unacceptable. i take full responsibility of my actions, i was being careless by not bringing the discriminators. i am deeply sorry for creating this hard time for you and your family. While I have caused this unpleasant experience, I am able to see where I went wrong. I believe acquiring this insight will allow me to learn and grow and prevent this mistake from happening in the future.

I am truly, truly sorry for what I did to you. I know you and your family are hurting now, and I know that's all because of me. I don't know if it's ever possible for you to forgive me, but I hope that someday you can find a way to do so. Looking back, I can’t believe that I forgot the discriminators for the 240. But I suppose hindsight is always 20/20. It was stupid and wasn't what was expected of me. Even if I explain my actions, it still doesn’t justify that i did something terribly wrong. I hope you can forgive me for what I did and put this matter behind us. Again, I am sorry for what happened,

The Story Behind the Palms

...wants this reassurance to manifest itself in God making others aware of David's relationship with Him. The Way It Was Used by God's People Its use is unknown. PSALM 88 AUTHOR: Heman The Story Behind the Psalm Here perhaps is the saddest of all the Psalms. It was written at the time of the division of the kingdom under Rehoboam. The theme of the Psalm and perhaps the key word would be the word "dark." Notice verses 6, 12 and 18. Heman was one of the wise men that Rehoboam had rejected. Solomon, Rehoboam's father, had burdened the people with taxes. Rehoboam was asked to lighten the load. He asked for three days in which to make up his mind. He first sought advice from the older men. They advised him to lighten the tax load. He then sought the younger men's advice. They advised him to make the tax load even heavier. Heman was one of the wise old men whose advice was shunned. Though Rehoboam had been taught by his father, he nevertheless reached adulthood without much character. When one becomes an adult and is void of character, it becomes exceedingly difficult to acquire it. In such cases, the wise man will borrow it. Rehoboam not only was void of character, but he was void of enough wisdom to accept the advice of the wise old men. One of the wise old men, Heman, wrote the 88th Psalm when rejected because of the plight of a divided kingdom. This Psalm is almost a lamentation as the case seems hopeless. The Way It Was Used by God's People This......

The Road to Brown Reflection Paper

...spent countless hours coming up with new ways/tactics to fight this problem. However, the fight came at a cost. Houston was cautioned by his doctor to settle down because of his heart condition, but was too determined to achieve his ultimate goal and would not let anything get in his way. Unfortunately, Charles Houston died on April 26, 1950 due to his heart condition. The man literally gave his life for the cause. Houston’s contributions were very impressive because he never stopped the fight and never realized his effects. Houston’s fight never stopped. Shortly after his death, cases such as, Sweatt v. Painter and McLaurin v. Oklahoma, brought Jim Crow to trial once again. The Sweatt v. Painter case involved a black man by the name of Heman Marion Sweatt, who was refused admission to the University of Texas Law School. When Sweatt asked the state courts to order his admission, the university attempted to provide separate but equal facilities for black law students by creating a completely new school. The case was brought to the Supreme Court and served as an influential landmark case of Brown v. Board of Education years later. Another Supreme Court case was McLaurin v. Oklahoma, which denied George W. McLaurin admission to the University of Oklahoma graduate program in education. However, they were not allowed to deny McLaurin a place in the school but tried to segregate him on campus. He had to sit by himself in a separate section of the classroom, sit at a separate......

In 1519, when the Spanish first saw the city, they were amazed of the city that was built in the center of the lake. The creation of Tenochtitlan demanded skilled army of thousands of men. They used wheels and canoes to move tons of materials for the cities construction. When Spanish, however, got closer to the city and began to walk toward the capital, they surprised how clean the streets are because of recycling most of the stuff they use. Also, Spanish noticed the buildings in the city how carefully were painted of bright colors such as light blue and yellow. Moctezuma who was the Aztec leader gave the Spanish commander, Heman Cortes, a bunch of gold as a gift. But after a while from Spanish arrival, they asked for more and more of gold. Cortes explained the Spanish needs for gold and asked for support especially after the diseases and the religious war Spanish had at that time. Gold, Silver and jewelry were the main reasons for the war between the Aztecs and the Spanish. In spite of the support Cortes was offered form number of the Aztecs, he already had a plan ready to attack the Aztecs and hunting their treasures.

...of the book themselves. Psalms is a collection of songs/poems of praise, lament, and thanksgiving. They tell of the creation of existence, wars, worship, wisdom, sin and evil, judgment, justice, the coming of the Messiah, and many other stories. While some of the Psalms’ authors are known, there are approximately 50 without known authors. David wrote most of the Psalms, which tell stories of him escaping Saul’s jealous madness, pretending to be mad himself in order to live in the city of Gath, his son Absolom’s success in convincing the city that he would be a better king than David, his plans for building the Temple, his expressed sin of committing adultery with Bathsheba, etc. Other known authors of Psalms include Asaph, the Korahites, Heman, Ethan, Moses, and Solomon. Proverbs Proverbs falls under the category of wisdom. The main theme in this book is wisdom. There is not really a central plot or chain of events, per se; it is more of a “guide to wisdom”. At the beginning, there are a few warnings and lessons taught. There is a warning against enticement: not to give in to sinners’ ways, one against rejecting wisdom: “eat the fruit of your ways, be filled with the fruit of your schemes” (basically, you will reap what you sow), and warnings against adultery and folly: if you cheat on your spouse and are foolish, the consequences are bad, to say the least. Then, there are some words of how wisdom’s benefits include protection, peace, etc. Solomon’s proverbs start in......

...specific responsibilities within the Tabernacle in Jerusalem (1 Chron. 6:31-47). Later, it was these same groups that formed the orchestra and choir that accompanied the Ark of the Covenant on its journey back to Jerusalem (1 Chron. 15,16). We read of singers and the use of harps, lyres, cymbals, trumpets, shouts, rams horns and dancing in this one section alone! When David delivered the kingship to Solomon, these same people and duties were reaffirmed for the coming Temple that Solomon was to build (1 Chron. 23:5, 25:1-26:19). There are many singers and musicians mentioned by name, but the three principal leaders were Asaph, Heman and Jeduthun, who were the heads of the families assigned to ministry through music. 2-1 Another is Kenaniah, who was appointed to be a song leader because “he was skillful at it” (1 Chron. 15:22). Heman is described as “the musician” in 1 Chron. 6:33 and was the King's seer (1 Chron. 25:5). Asaph, his associate (1 Chron. 6:39) also prophesied under the King's supervision (1 Chron. 25:2), as did Jeduthun who “prophesied, using the harp in thanking and praising the Lord” (1 Chron. 25:3). Clearly, music was an important and integral part of the Temple worship, to the point that skilled and trained musicians were set aside under the leadership of specific individuals to fulfill this role. Another important emphasis found in these references is the emphasis on the prophetic role played by the worship leaders. The Hebrew word......

Heman Melville Research Paper

...Nathan K. Marsland Mrs. Lauren Williams English III April 1st, 2015 Melville was born in a time of American history where inspiring works of American literature began to emerge. It was also a time when America had not completely separated its literary heritage from Europe, partly because there were successful literary genius’ flourishing there. Melville proved to be a genius of his own, with his many works such as Moby Dick, Billy Bud, and Bartleby. Three distinct themes could be seen throughout most of his literature; whales and the whaling industry, commentary on the universe and human destiny, and ideas about God and nature. Moby Dick is an incredible work by Melville most often referred to as an epic, a tragedy, a novel, an exposition on the whaling, and a spiritual autobiography. It is often overlooked that a deeper, more symbolic, meaning may have been the driving force behind Moby Dick.  Herman Melville was born on August 1, 1819, to Allan and Maria Melville. He was the third of eight children in the Melville family. He was generally described as silent and slow; his mother thought him to be a very dull child. In 1832 Melville suffered tragedy when his father died. Finishing school when he was fifteen, Melville took service as cabin boy aboard the St. Lawrence. After returning to his home in New York for some time after serving as cabin boy, Melville took berth as an ordinary seaman aboard a whaling ship called the Acushnet. After approximately four and a......

...Risks associated with the initiative and financial effects Wal-Mart may have The strategic planning initiatives of Wal-Mart have a huge on their financial planning. Wal-Mart also puts a huge importance on pricing their products at low prices.
