  • What Is Billy Graham's Evangelistic Career

    University, had met Graham at Florida Bible Institute years earlier and later he heard Graham preach at a Youth for Christ rally. Riley began thinking about how he would run Northwestern schools after he died and he thought of Graham. Graham was not interested at first, but, after Riley’s persistent requests, Graham accepted. In January 1948, Graham became the youngest college president in the whole nation. Graham had a lot more responsibilities and would soon have even more. Graham was about to become a complete solo act and a dad once again. After Graham’s second daughter, Anne, was born, he decided to leave Youth for Christ in order to preach to all people instead of just the young. The team of Graham, Cliff Barrows, Grady Wilson, and George Beverly Shea decided to stay together and would for the next fifty years. In 1949, Graham was invited to Los Angeles to speak and little did he know that this event would make him a national celebrity. Graham would now have national and international fame and the crusades would change his life forever. With little press coverage and sparse crowds, the crusade hardly seemed promising, but that was about to change. Billy Graham and almost anyone in the Los Angeles area would have guessed that the crusade was going to be a failure, but they were all wrong.

The books I read definitely did this for me. In The Magic Tree House series, I…

  • Cultural Differences In Residential Areas

    I took the bus around the Los Angeles area on a Saturday. The bus I used was the 30/330 that goes from Sunset Boulevard into East Los Angeles. This was mostly what seemed to be residential areas and the main streets of Los Angeles. While riding the bus I saw the difference within the people through the surrounding buildings. The visible wealth disparity between the residents of Los Angeles is very stark and can be seen within neighborhoods. Starting at Sunset, near the Greystone Mansion, the…

  • College Admissions Essay: Do I Love My Name?

    think of my name, I mostly think of pink lemonade. To me my name feels smooth, like strawberry sorbet. None of the people who’ve given me nicknames could comprehend how my name feels to me.

I and my friends don’t really know how or why it happened, she just started calling me that and it caught on.…

  • The Importance Of Inaugural Addresses

    ” Will believes that “the general shortening of sentences reflects, in part, a change in nature of Inaugural Addresses.” He refers to Teddy Roosevelt who called the presidency “a bully pulpit.” Later addresses have had an incentive to tell Americans how to behave with phrases such as “The only thing we have to fear…” and “Ask not…” A more popular phrase which was used by Kennedy and Nixon was “Let us…,” which according to Will means, “For Pete’s sake, pull up your socks and shape up.” The…

  • Critical Analysis Of A Sunday On La Grande Jatte

    I had to understand why Seurat used such a difficult technique for his work. I then came upon the theory that perhaps he wanted to produce a deeper sense of life in his paintings.
