Knowledge and Peace Knowledge is one of the most important factors in maintaining a peaceful and free society. Knowledge allows a society to plan for the future, while learning from past mistakes. Many great nations have fallen into war and chaos because they did not utilize the wisdom gained from the past. Many societies’ problems were preventable, if people had used the lessons at their disposal and placed emphasis on solving their problems through the use of their intellects, rather than thei
Kobe Bryant Could you imagine being nineteen years old and making five million dollars a year?

La Pieta To see a scorned, beaten, and crucified man lying dead in the arms of his mother is an image, which can inspire overwhelming emotions within the heart of an observer. Yet, for the longest time I\'ve had such difficulty looking at Michelangelo\'s Pieta or any piece of art in this way. To me, art has never been about expressing oneself or conveying a message to others, but simply creating an image for the sake of beauty and perfection. When I look at the Pieta I see a cold, solid mass of

Lean On Me East Side High School was labeled a “cauldron of violence.” After they were designated this harsh term, Joe Clark becomes the head principal and changes it all around – or does he? Lean on Me is a story of hope, development, love, hate, and dependence. As a father figure and friend, Clark’s strict disciplining and harsh attitude helps heal, strengthen, and bring to life a struggling high school in New Jersey. But is this plot just a story for the movie screen? Did the true story reall
Learn From Our Failures There is much to learn from failure. When you fail at something you realize the mistakes that you made. You learn how you should have done things in order not to make the mistakes that you did. The next time you try to succeed at the same task you can apply when you learned from your mistakes. I was once in love with a girl named Allison. At the time I was dealing with a drug addiction. I lied to her about the addiction, trying to hide it from her because I feared I would

Legalization Of Weed In this country, we are locked in a war we simply cannot win. We strive to protect over 10,000 miles of border, against enemies who are driven by the lure of a huge profit. We fought a version of this war before with prohibition, and we lost that one. All that has really resulted from this war is the overcrowding of prisons, the expansion of law enforcement’s ability to infringe on the personal lives of ordinary citizens, paranoia and distrust. If its not obvious already, I

Life Is Like The Movies Going to the movies is fun. You get your candy and your drink and are taken away into a fictional world for two or three hours, then leave the theater and get back to reality. But is what you\'re going back to really reality? Plato said no. In the Allegory of the Cave (chapter XXV) in the The Republic he proposes that we all live like people in a movie theater, only he uses prisoners in a cave to illustrate the situation. He creates an image of prisoners, chained down in

Lincoln - Douglas Debate Affirmative Case Introduction- We must use every tool of diplomacy and law we have available, while maintaining both the capacity and the resolve to defend freedom.

And we must go forward with a will as great as our goal – to build a practical peace that will endure through the remaining years of this century and far into the next.” Because I believe so strongly in the words of U.S. Secretary
Listening Report - Blow This was a good CD. Not as good as the last three CD’s that I did listening reports on, (Korn, Marilyn Manson, and Nirvana) but good nonetheless. I was absolutely appalled at the ranges of some of the people performing for this CD (Vaughn Nark, Allen Vizutti). Another thing that was really cool about this CD, is that, although it was a trumpet CD, there were other solos like Piano, Sax and drum solos, too. Also, because of the different players and different musical taste
Literary Utopian Societies Literary Utopian Societies “The vision of one century is often the reality of the next…” (Nelson 108). Throughout time, great minds have constructed their own visions of utopia. Through the study of utopias, one finds that these “perfect” societies have many flaws. For example, most utopias tend to have an authoritarian nature (Manuel 3). Also, another obvious imperfection found in the majority of utopias is that of a faulty social class system (Thomas 94). But one mus
Littleton It seems for the past week or so, the entire world (yes, world, when I was in Spain they showed news coverage of this 24/7 too) has been shaken up by the school shootings in Littleton, CO (I think thats the name of the town, though don\'t hold me to that). What amazes me about this story is not the fact that two people went into a school and shot a bunch of people (apparently this is the seventh in-school multiple homicide in teh past 18 months), its the fact that the media has given e
Long Range Casues Of WWII World War I was a very complicated war. It goes back as far back as 1870. Of course the was didn’t last for that many years, but it had many casues. Not just one spark that started it off. The Franco-Prussian War was one of these casues. There were sevral Franco-Prussian Wars. The last Franco-Prussian War started in 1870. Prussia was in a confederation. A confederation is a group of states that are loosly joined together and have more power than the government of the wh
Loss Of A Friend Loss of a Friend Today in society many people rely on computers as much as they rely on their lungs to keep breathing. If Y2K had occurred, modern life would have collapsed into a world of chaos. People would not know what to do with themselves or their families.

LOUIS RIEL Louis Riel should not have been hung because he represented those who couldn’t represent themselves. Louis Riel was disappointed with the way the Métis were, so he took it upon himself to represent the Métis and their rights. Even though the actions that followed, such as keeping the new governor out the colony, was illegal and very wrong. Riel risked it for the rights of the Métis. As for Thomas Scott, Riel has absolutely no legal right to have him shot, but Riel himself never touche
LOVE Benjamin Franklin once said, If you would be loved, love and be lovable. Love is something we are all in at least one time or another in our life. There are many different meanings for the word love and many people interpret it differently. Love as defined by Webster\'s dictionary is a profoundly tender, passionate affection for another person. When you love someone you care not only care about them as a person, but also about their well being. When they are hurt, you feel hurt and when the

Manatees In 1493, when Columbus sailed to the Americas for his second journey, he and his sailors were the first Europeans to spot the present-day manatees.

Since the early 1900\'s the manatee population has dwindled severely. Finally countries and smaller organizations began taking interest in saving the manatees. Laws

Additionally, if children’s media is censored, parents are the ones who should monitor and regulate it. Parents should be the ones to monitor children’s viewing of television and also what they hear on the radio, CD’s, and tapes. Censorship in

Milton to Pope In this essay I will attempt to contrast the type of society that would create a Milton to a society that would create a Pope. Although you may be able to understand what I\'m saying from my essay, the depth of what I want to say can not be put into words, and therefore I suggest that you read and compare the same information that I have. I will now explain a bit about Milton and Pope to help you get an understanding. Milton was born into the middle class and grew up in a highly c
