    Falling a Little Short Most young children grow up recieving participation medals with pride while listening while their parents tell them that they tried their best. I guess that you could say that I was not raised like most children. Ever since I was able to walk my father had me running bases and playing catch. When I was 7, since there were not any softball teams available for me to join, my father even signed me up to play for a boys baseball team. It might have been weird that I was a young girl who played third base, but it was even weirder that I excelled. Ever since then my father has claimed that playing on that team with a bunch of boys made me into the athlete that I later became. After my season with the baseball team I began playing for a traveling softball team from Latta, Oklahoma. Not much was different about the games, but I remember being completely appalled by the game of softball.

So althought the games of baseball and softball are relatively the exact same, I could not stand softball. The only problem was that I could not just start playing baseball again simply because of the circumstances, and then I had to face the fact that I was forever going to have to deal with the horrid game of softball. Ever since I had started school in pre-k I had attended Roff Public Schools in Roff, Oklahoma. During my…

    July 22, 2012 was one of my favorite days of my life, it was the day we won the Gopher State Baseball Tournament. We got to take a coach bus up to target field and walk on the field with all the other age groups that also won.

    In Mary Doria Russell’s novel The Sparrow, the complexities of social and structural sin, as well as fate and free will are evident. In class, we defined free will as making the conscious decisions of the choices in one’s life, and fate as very one-dimensional, where one’s outcome is already pre-determined (Theodicy PPT). In a story where God is present, it is hard to decide whether following what you believe to be Gods path is fate or free will, which is challenged in The Sparrow. Furthermore,…

    In Homer’s Iliad, it is debateable whether or not Achilles is responsible for his own fate, linked to his level of free choice. Achilles’ fate in the Iliad ends up with him killing Hector and then later dying young with glory as opposed to a long, inconspicuous life. Upon examining Achilles’ choices in the Iliad, it is evident that Achilles play a significant role in deciding his own fate, even if he is not aware of it. This can be shown by looking at one of the major choices Achilles makes,…

    with knowledge; however, it is fulfilled with learning how to think. Another stereotype he mentions during "Kenyon Commencement Speech" is about two men who have the different point of view on religion. In this story, two men have different opinions on what they view about god. Wallace analyzed that the exact same experience can mean two completely different things to different people.

    what they judge and what they choose; for so/ I form 'd them free, and free they must remain” (260:10-12). Since Milton is portraying God 's voice, according to this passage we were created with the intention to prevail over our own lives and decisions. If we have the freedom to choose and always will, then it is reasonable to say that we should be able to make decisions, not without consequences, but without God 's intervention or the influence of his will. Although we assume and appear to be…
