Gay marriage

I would like to talk about gay marriage. I think that this is a very important topic, and I think that it is very wrong. I belive that when god made a man and a woman he intendid to keep it that way, they should be able to have a relationship and do whatever they want but they shouldn't be able to get married. The thing that bothers me the most is what if your kids or mine (in the future) grow up and think it's okay and it would just be fun to have same sex marriage and have relationships when they are very young. Even though I do know some people and some friends that don't believe what i believe I'm not going to ever not speak up for what I think is right.

When disaster strikes.

Wow, what do I think about Haiti...Well I think it's a terrible thing that has happened in this world, there has been many similar disasters in other countries but this one really hit me. Just to think about what it would be like to live there and have to go through losing your home, your family or your life. I want to help and make a difference in these people's lives. When you see how bad all of the pictures are, It just stunned me and made me realize how fortunate I am and all the things I have. I think it's great how America is making a huge impact on Haiti, I was reading a story about a newborn baby in critical condition, and a doctor in Haiti insisted on bringing her to America. That's how I want it to be I want our country to help others in need and it is. I am very proud of where I live.

I am the pig

I am the pig
and you are the wolf
waiting at the door
to gobble me up
and chew on my bones
then spit me out
and nobody is big enough
or see's enough
to keep it from happening.

This poem reminds me of the book we read in English class in was called Speak. I think it relates to speak because of the words like I am the pig, I think that it means that she or he is helpless and nobody can see or help. Melinda Sordino is the main character in speak, she is very shy and doesn't have a lot of friends, this boy named Andy, tortures her at school and ruins her reputation. He lurks in the hallways like she is his prey, and nobody notices. This poem is amazing.


Today I read an article about the Haiti earthquake and how it affected people there. Haiti is one of the poorest countries in the world, and on top of that they have just had a horrible earthquake. Haiti is about the size of Maryland. Because of all the damage this earthquake has left thousands of people homeless and dead. Because of the way there houses and shelters were built they could not withstand the earthquake. Nothing really could withstand the earthquake, but many people try to help. Even tho there is Americans helping there is still a large amount of people dieing from diseases and untreated wounds, they don't have the proper tools to survive and take care of these diseases. There are lots of kids, babies, and adults getting rushed to the United States and airlifted, many children cant get treated there for serious conditions, that's why America is one of the best places they will go to get help for there conditions.

My opinion

I think that if a man or woman has comitted a murder then they should face the death penalty in Maine. However, if there isn't a lot of proof that a person has murdered another than i would want them to get all the facts and if that person is truley guilty then i would want them to face the death penalty. But if the murderer says that it was all in self defense than i think that they should put all the evidence together, god made us for a reason, to live, but if people are being murdered, the murderers should be killed. It's only fair. I also think it should be enforced in all states of America.

I think that Steve is guilty because of all the clues that he is leaving for us. When he started talking about being in the store and trying to keep him mind a blank screen, i thought well if he is trying to make it a blank screen he wants to block it out of his head and forget about it. But at the same time I think he feels bad about Mr. Nesbitt. When steve was holding the basketball and dropped it then ran away I think that he is guilty of being the lookout and signaling them. Therefore he is guilty.

21 Years. :O

I don't think I could live. I'm not trying to make people feel bad for me but if I was put in jail for something I did or something I wasn't even involved with I could not stand to not see outside and to not see my brothers and sisters. I would especially miss my family and all it has to offer. I mean what if I was in jail for that long and my mother or father died? I don't think I could bare it. Nothing in the world could ever replace my family. I would also miss out on everything, college, being married having kids. Even being an aunt. I can't even think of how scared I would be. Over time it would change me, I would be a different person. If I had been charged with murder or even robbery, I can't think of what my little sisters would think of me and how that would reflect on their lives.
