Last year on my 22nd birthday I got the best surprise in one of my favorite cities San Francisco, California. It all started with waking up to Taylor Swift’s song “I’m feeling 22” and happily dancing and singing along to the music. The weekend was already special because my younger sister was visiting from the Bay area and my Grandmother and Grandfather were celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary. My sister Sarah, my longtime boyfriend TJ and I started off our Sunday adventure around 7 o’clock in the morning, right after we got Starbucks of course. We were making our way from Antelope, which is in the Greater Sacramento area, to San Francisco to enjoy a day of adventuring. The journey there was full of laughter and music, along with site seeing all the beautiful scenery around. I am a frequent visitor to the City so we decided to go to the beach where we always do, right off of Ocean Beach by the Cliff House restaurant. Like we had done many times before we hiked down the cliff and walked around the old building foundations. The old structure filled with water so we walk on the cement beams around and across careful not to fall in the water with all the seagulls and seaweed. So that part is always fun and almost dangerous at the same time! We finally make our way across after helping one another on the more difficult spots but still having a great time. The next part of our journey was to a cave that ended at the ocean with rocks and waves. In the middle of the cave there was a spot where you could see the ocean coming under you and that part was always very wet which caused the whole cave to be on the muddy side. It was a pretty chilly day in San Francisco so we were all in sweatshirts and jeans. At this point we were lucky because there no other people and we got to enjoy the view with each other. At the end of the cave there is a chain so you know it is dangerous and not to pass it. Then there are huge rocks and boulders and if the time of day is right you get to catch big waves crashing against the earth. Sarah, TJ and I were just standing there taking occasional pictures and enjoying the view when out of nowhere TJ says to us “Alright time to sing Happy Birthday”. So I thought okay this makes sense but is a little random. They sing and as soon as they finish TJ tell me to Turn around and close my eyes and wait there, so I do as he says not knowing what to expect! Then he starts talking, saying all these wonderful things about me and our relationship. Then I get a little nervous because if you know him you know he is quite the joker. But then he finally proposes and asks if I will marry him, and I turned around with light speed to see if he was serious. He was very serious and I said “Oh my gosh, Of course YES!” then he slipped the ring on my left ring finger and it fit perfectly. I wished I could freeze that moment in time and go back as many times as I wanted, we hugged and were just blissfully happy. Sarah then told me she had no idea that was going to happen but did get some pictures last minute as it happened. TJ got mud all over his knee from the cave floor, but told me he was so nervous and I said “what for? I have been waiting for years to say yes!” Eventually we hiked back up the hill and decided to get some sandwiches for lunch. We ended our trip with visiting the Exploratorium and the pier. That was one of the best days of my life so far, and I can not thank my sister and my fiancé enough for making that happen for me. Since this day time has flew by and in 9 short months I will be marrying my best friend with all my loved ones close by.

Salt March in India

...The Salt March, also known as the Salt Satyagraha, began with the Dandi March on March 12, 1930, and was an important part of the Indian independence movement. It was a direct actioncampaign of tax resistance and nonviolent protest against the British salt monopoly in colonial India, and triggered the wider Civil Disobedience Movement. This was the most significant organized challenge to British authority since the Non-cooperation movement of 1920–22, and directly followed the Purna Swaraj declaration of independence by the Indian National Congresson January 26, 1930. Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi (commonly called Mahatma Gandhi) led the Dandi march from his base, Sabarmati Ashram near Ahmedabad, to the sea coast near the village of Dandi. As he continued on this 23 day, 240 mile (390 km) march to produce salt without paying the tax, growing numbers of Indians joined him along the way. When Gandhi broke the salt laws at 6:30 am on April 6, 1930, it sparked large scale acts of civil disobedienceagainst the British Raj salt laws by millions of Indians. The campaign had a significant effect on changing world and British attitudes toward Indian independence and caused large numbers of Indians to join the fight for the first time. After making salt at Dandi, Gandhi continued southward along the coast, producing salt and addressing meetings on the way. His group planned to stage a satyagraha at the Dharasana Salt Works, 25 miles south of Dandi. However, Gandhi was arrested on the......

Peace March

...My word, what a program Capital Talk of 3rd October proved to be, guests included Imran Khan (PTI), Marie Ann Wright (US former diplomat) and Lauren Booth (Britsh journalist). The show was hosted by Hamid Mir and its agenda was to talk on the issue of Drone attacks and Waziristan Peace March. Hamid Mir proved to be comparatively better anchor than other hosts such as Sana Bucha, Asma Shirazi and Javed Chaudhary, etc. He was moving on with questions instead of asking same questions repeatedly. Biggest surprise for me were responses given by the two foreign guests; they seemed to be more Pakistani than any so-called anchor, analyst, or politician from PPP, PMLN, MQM and ANP etc., kudos to them for speaking out truth with courage and audacity. Imran Khan, as usual, was solid in his responses and clear on his stances. He did not budge even for a moment when he declared that once the proper voice has been raised in front of United States and within United Nations against the use of Drones in Pakistan, he will order the PAF to shoot down any invading aircraft that violates the sovereignty of Pakistan’s by entering its air space. This is a normal procedure followed by all countries as per UN charter. Marie Ann and Lauren Booth supported Khan in this, though Ann hoped that it will not come to this. Furthermore, the foreign guests confirmed what most neutral, honest and patriotic analysts in Pakistan have been stating continuously, according to them the media abroad is being used...

Kennedy (Micropaedia, 6/870). The next major point in the Civil Rights Movement was the March on Washington, which was held on August 28th 1963, took a lot of time to organize, this march was meant to symbolize the demands for the passage of the Kennedy Administration Civil Rights Legislation, the desegregation and integration of all public schools by the years end, the start of a Federal Fair Employment Act to band discrimination in employment and a federal program to assist those that were unemployed (Time Magizine,11). The organizers made sure the march was integrated so as not to appear as a racially motivated event but to show its purpose, as it truly was a fight against injustice. People came from all across the country to take part in this massive movement, and arrived by any way they were capable of using, many groups and organizations also took part in the march including the Urban League and the N.A.A.C.P.

Was the Long March a Success

...The Long March Part A Practice The Long March took place in China from October 1934 to October 1935. It was a strategic retreat from Jianxi province in the south, all the way to Yan’an in the north of China. The Long March began Mao Zedong's ascent to power, whose leadership during the retreat gained him the support of the members of the party. The bitter struggles of the Long March, which was completed by only about one-tenth of the force that left Jiangxi, came to represent a significant event in the history of the Communist Party of China. This sealed the personal prestige of Mao and his supporters as the new leaders of the party in the following twenty years, creating the new party elite. Some historians, such as Spence, are sceptical about the significance of the Long March on the CCP. However it is clear that at the time it was an incredibly significant event for the communists. This is shown by Sources 2 and 6, both intimating that the Long March was crucial. The success of the Long March created propaganda for the communists and helped to spread the communist message amongst the population of China. One short term effect of the Long March was that communism was spread around China and events during the Long March were mythologised and used as propaganda against Chiang and the KMT.  It was vital in helping the CCP to gain a positive reputation among the peasants due to the determination and dedication of the surviving participants of the Long March.

Forward March: an American Dilemma

...Forward March: an American Dilemma Stephanie C. Perkins DeVry University HIST 415: Vietnam & 20th Century Experience Fall B, 2014 Forward March: an American Dilemma On assuming office, a government’s leader is charged with making decisions, based on input from trusted collaborators, advisors, and associates. This element of cooperation, at times, has resulted in exposure to the possibility of being party to actions based on willfully manipulated information, creating political embarrassment, or worse, betrayal. America in early 1960s, believed the situation in South Vietnam was under control, since the President believed it was. President Kennedy had made public declarations in December of 1962, on the successes of the Diem regime in South Vietnam, in creating a stable government aligned with the American ideals of democracy, and progressing in the fight against the communists (Moss, 2010, p. 102). This optimism, despite numerous reports from diplomats as well as military personnel, advising Kennedy of the disintegration of the armed forces, as well as Diem’s dictatorial approach to his job (Winters, 1988). Definite Dictator Diem, although not a communist, based his stewardship of South Vietnam on an equally autocratic approach, described in his terms, as the management of “…an enlightened sovereign” (Moss, 2010, p.69). To Diem, those words meant centralizing all political powers under direct control of his government, much akin to the imperialists he......

March 2

...March 2, 2024 Dear Bridgette, How are you? I just wanted to send you a letter letting you know how proud of you I am. You have come such a long way in life. It’s pretty amazing the transformation you have made. You are a great wife to your husband and a wonderful mother to your children, and even to the kids you helped raise that aren’t your own. It’s a beautiful thing to see how much your family means to you. You also have a rewarding career as a RN. It’s a demanding job, and took over 5 years of school, but you did it. Not only did you get your Associates Degree in Nursing, but you went even further by going to a University to get your Bachelor’s Degree. That’s pretty amazing, considering there was a time in your life when you couldn’t imagine anything beyond Bob’s Classy Lady or the Candy Cat. There was a time I wondered if there was any hope for you. All you did was work in bars, whether it be bartending, or dancing. You’re only concerns were having a good time and where the party was and those were your priorities way before you were 21. This is why you dropped outta high school. It interfered with your “good time.” And that resulted in you being in those bars for so many years. You didn’t need an education to pour drinks or dance. Your firstborn, Adrian was the best thing to ever happen to you. Once you got pregnant with him you changed your life from top to bottom. You knew that you could never have a husband and raise a family with the kind of life you had......

The March on Washington

...The March on Washington Introduction It is August 1963, and tensions have been mounting in the year leading up to this day. I don’t think anyone realized the impact this march would have on the civil rights movement or if Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. knew his impromptu speech alone would have a significant impact on the American people and on the soon to fallow political choices. Had this march not have gone the way it did things may have taken longer to move forward and the Civil Act Movement in my opinion may have been stunted and delayed. Body Between 1940’s and 1963 there had been two marches organized on Washington the first was led by A. Philip Randolph whom was the consummate black political organizer of his age. He labored unrelentingly to get individuals and groups to put aside their divisive, parochial, and often petty concerns and close ranks in the formation of a mass movement for the common good. The foremost architect of the modern Civil Rights movement, he urged boycotts in the South against Jim Crow trains, buses, schools, and businesses. “Nonviolent Good Will Direct Action” is what he labeled his movement to gain social equality decades before Martin Luther King, Jr., and others emerged on the 1960’s political scene. If not the man himself, then his influence and ideas were at home at the forefront of virtually every civil rights campaign from the 1930’s through the 1960’s, including desegregation of public accommodations and schools, ending of......

Journal Entry March 7, 1965

...Journal Entry: March 7, 1965 Anonymous HIS/145 May 7, 2014 Mr. Jeff Wilson March 7, 1965 Today is the day that we showed the white people of America that we will not sit down and watch as they dangle our freedom in our faces. The day began with thoughts of justice, and equality, and the egger feeling that after today we, brothers and sisters, will soon be able to exercise our right to vote, just as our constitution permits. As I got dressed this morning, in my best suit and tie, I imagined what the feeling would be like to actually cast my first vote. Because today we will march. We will march for our right to vote, for the ability to physically vote, without the acts of violence, and without literacy tests. I got to the church where everyone was told to meet. One of the leaders of SNCC reminded us that this was a peaceful demonstration and no one will act in violence in the face of violence. Really!? I said to myself. If someone becomes violent with me I cannot just turn the other cheek, if they want war I’ll give them war. But as soon as I thought this our leaders reminded us that we cannot show the same hatred they show to us, because then we become the same, evil. The march was set to be 56 miles long. We were to march from Selma to our states capitol, Montgomery. Activists came from all around to participate in today’s demonstration. In all about 600 people arrived ready to have our voices heard by the government, ready for equality, and ready for humanity. Even...

Sherman’s March to the Sea: War Tactics

...Sherman’s March to the Sea: War Tactics This march helped end the Civil War in 1865. With many battles fought, the Union thought it had no chance in winning the war until the capture of Atlanta, Georgia. This boosted the morale of the Union and it helped the men fight back and continue on. The Union was lead by General Ulysses Grant and under him was General William T. Sherman. General Sherman started his campaign to take Atlanta in May of 1864. He formed three armies, and for about three months moving south it causes the Confederates to fall back further into Georgia. The Confederate’s General Joseph Johnson was replaced by General John Hood because Johnson was not showing any willingness to fight back at the Union. Then after many battles Sherman wins the victory, and claims the city of Atlanta on September 1, 1864. He moved into the capitol building the very next day. With the capture of Atlanta, President Abraham Lincoln was re-elected as president, after many had thought that the Confederate promises will win the election for the democrats.(militaryhistory.about.com) For the next two months Sherman campaign to go south into enemy territories. With the approval from President Lincoln, Sherman splits up his army into two groups, the Left and Right Wing, they head towards to the capture of Savannah. On November 15 the armies started marching south; the Left Wing went to Augusta, while the Right Wing went to Macon, causing the Confederate army to split as well.......
