Of those who lived and died
She sat there watching the men walk around. No one seemed to notice her. She was used to people walking over her. But this was not a time for someone not to notice her. She grew angry, shifting in her seat banging on the table in front of her. She would not be ignored. The sky grew black and miserable since she had been sitting in that wooden seat. Her name was Mollie. She lived on the corner of town. The mysterious girl had bright almost clear blue eyes and hair that would sweep off her shoulders like the swirls at the beach. This was the third time she would claim that she saw it. She sat in the police department for she had just witnessed a crime. Mollie was a girl of just 19. She felt it in her head again. Mollie knew what was coming next. It was a flash of light. A man. A woman. She didn’t understand. But she had seen it all before. There was always something about Mollie. She saw things, heard things and felt things that people would never understand. That’s why he found her interesting. Oscar had always found her interesting.

Oscar was a man of just 22. He had been stationed in the city of Franklin to work as a detective at his young age. This was his first week and he had heard the stories she told. No one could deny them false but no one could find the truth either. Mollie always told the police she had seen it happen in a dream but they never believed her. Oscar found her attractive. She was curious and different and that’s what grabbed him in the start. He wanted the key to her mind.
“She’s back, is she? Yelled the sheriff.
“It’s okay, I’ll deal with her” smiled Oscar.
As he walked over to the girl in blue, he felt overcome by her eyes. She looked nervous and scared. All Oscar wanted to do was go home to bed, but he needed to understand her mind.
“Hello, I’m Detective Oscar Scott, I’m here to ask about the three...

Jesus and Muhammad

...as God’s son, a man of wisdom and who was killed to save others of their sins. I will be writing about the life and deaths, and the differences between Jesus and Muhammad and what they mean to the religious people that follow them. Jesus Jesus Christ was born to the Virgin Mary (0 BCE) in Bethlehem in a stable with animals. Jesus’s mother Mary was married to a man name Joseph who was a carpenter in Bethlehem. Jesus’s life and death were written in the Bible. As an adult he became a carpenter in the town of Nazareth.

Jesus informed his disciples that they had to give up all their material things in order to follow him and live the life the right way. He later became a public speaker and taught God’s word and was said to perform miracles. The miracles that was said Jesus had performed were turning water to wine, giving the blind their sight, walking on water, healing those who were paralyzed, turning fish and bread into enough food to feed many people, and to take the demons out of people who were possessed. He told the people that God was a forgiving God for those who asked for forgiveness of their sins. With the amazement of his followers and enemies Jesus lived a life that was pure with no sin.

My name is Alaina Robbins and today I am here to tell you about a young girl who lived through one of the most tragic events known to mankind, and who’s legacy is still talked about to this day. I would like to start off with a quote “I don’t think of all the misery, but of the beauty that still remains. My advice is: go outside, to the fields, enjoy nature and the sunshine. Think of all the beauty that’s still left in an around you and be happy.” This quote is by Anne Frank, a girl of Jewish descent who experienced first hand the harsh realities of the Holocaust. The Holocaust was a catastrophic event that shook the entire world, as Adolf Hitler demanded the execution of several million European Jews.

Biography

...25 November 2015 The Greatest Man That’s Ever Lived Michael Jordan, Michael Jackson, LeBron James, Kobe Bryant, Ronald Reagan. These are just some of the few men considered to be the greatest man that’s ever lived. When I think of the greatest man that ever lived I don’t think of those names. I think about my grandfather, Roberto Littaua, but I called him Lolo Bob. He died ten years ago, January 29, 2005, from a brain tumor in the Philippines. That was a tragedy for my family and I, especially for me because I was still young, and I could have done so much more with him. A memory I remember was how he would smile whenever he saw me at my happiest times like one Christmas day when I was playing with a new toy I got, as he sat in his rocking chair, and just smiled. If I recall clearly, the toy I was playing with was a Redbox Semi-Truck Goodyear toy that would carry 40 cars, with 20 cars on each side of the truck. I would drag the truck around, and even grab the cars off the truck. Lolo Bob didn’t really say much because he was not much of a talker, but I remember clearly how he looked like. He was dark skinned, bald headed, but often had a wig on, and roughly 5’10”. That was a good time to live through. So what is the other memory I remember? Well that’s simple. The time when he had taught my brother and I how to play basketball. Basketball is a big thing that runs on both sides of my parents’ family. First, it was Lolo Bob who played basketball, and he became a national......

I never got a chance to talk to her or know about her. Professionally, it has no effect, but it's crushing emotionally and personally."[17] Throughout his childhood, Tyson lived in and around high-crime neighborhoods. According to an...

More Than a Carpenter

...MORE THAN A CARPENTER BOOK SUMMARY By Josh McDowell, published by Tyndale house, Wheaton – Illinois, 1977:127 pages The author aims at demonstrating the uniqueness of Jesus, who is more than a carpenter. He does this by asking ten serious questions, which forms his chapter divisions, which are in-depth in trying to understand the identity of Jesus. In his preface, Mr McDowell argues that so many historians have agreed that Jesus lived one of the greatest life ever lived. His beauty is eternal and his reign shall never end. He is in every respect unique and nothing can be compared with him. All history is incomprehensible without Christ. In the first question, Mr. McDowell endeavours to investigate what makes Jesus different. Although Jesus was a great religious leader that only does not make him different and unique from others.. Mohammed, Buddha and other religious were great as well. Several things are highlighted by the author that make Jesus unique. Jesus was different because he was God. The gospels clearly states that he was 100 percent God. That meant that what God the father was able to do, he was also able to do, for example forgiveness of sins. Secondly, Jesus received worship and honour like that of God the Father. All that was due to the Father was accorded to Jesus. And also, Jesus was equal with the Father in nature. He was from the beginning eternal, not created. With this well reason out statements, McDowell explains clearly what makes Jesus......

Final

...life upon finishing this course, I have come to learn more than I though I would have but also my view changed on certain parts. To reference philosophy, many philosophers have a way of questing whether God truly exist(ed) or was he a made-up immortal that humans gave life and now worship and in that it makes me questions the same thing. “Mortals suppose that gods are born and have clothes and voices and shapes like their own.”(Fieser 14) There is not much evidence to prove that God was a human being and that he was born in Jerusalem in the years between 6 B.C. and 4 B.C. “A man who, having the knowledge and power required to makes his children good, chose instead to make them bad, would be viewed with execration. But God, if He exists, makes this choice in that case of very many of His children.”(Russell 6) It’s hard to !2 believe whether God was really in existence when an immortal who was to want all good and no evil, would let his “children” run rampant and wreak havoc with being punished for their sins. “… philosophy is to be studied, not for the sake of...

At the end of World War II, there were the bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki in Japan in 1945. Before these two bombing occurred, the United States bombed 67 Japanese cities, and then finally when the Japanese government ignored the fact that the US wanted Japan to surrender, the US fired these two bombs. The affects on Japan were huge. 90,000-166,000 people were killed in Hiroshima, and 60,000-80,000 people were killed in Nagasaki.

Then finally on August 15, Japan declared its surrender and that ended World War II. A survivor described the damage of the bombing on Hiroshima: “The appearance of people was . . . well, they all had skin blackened by burns. . . .
