    The Hole That Opened My Eyes It was a cloudy, cold, and windy winter morning. I remember the day I felt so embarrassed because everyone around me was laughing. I was a chunky fifth grader who was ashamed of her body image and hated it when it came to playing sports in PE. I was one of those kids who always got picked last. Additionally, I was always getting yelled at because I was not good enough of an athlete. I wanted to prove my skills. I wanted to show them that I was capable of being a good player. I also wanted them to know that my body image did not reflect the talents I had. I was in a place I did not see myself in, especially at that moment. I never expected it to happen. Although, it made me realize one thing about myself, I learned that you just have to love and be yourself because no one is perfect, everyone is unique. On that Wednesday morning my PE instructor told my classmates and I that he needed two team leaders. Of course I hated it.

    My Piano Research Paper

    • 731 Words
    • 3 Pages

    The piano is something quite beautiful. The notes themselves are able to hum a certain tune, but if played correctly, more than one note can create a blissful melody. However, some notes are best played with a select few. The notes can represent humans. Each note, or human, sings their own note in their own perfect way. They never change who they are. They are never one another. But, sad to say, the notes themselves aren't enough, and neither was I. In the summer of 2004, I was a shy…

    “After he had examined the camp, he approached us. He gave an inspiring speech about what criminals the prisoners were and how they should never have existed- the usual stuff. After, he asked if there were any questions. “Mr. Hitler! I was accused! I shouldn’t be here! I am Aryan!” I yelled. He looked at me skeptically with disgust. “Now, is that true?” he asked, clearly unamused with my claims. One of the Nazi leaders informed Hitler that I was telling the truth, and immediately fired the…

    It was March 20, 2014, I was sitting in the office under a picture depicting General George Washington commanding the continental army, the secretaries busy at work, talking, laughing and drinking their cold, bitter coffee. Why was I here? What had I done? What were they going to do to me? was all I could manage to think while sitting in that beige, swivel chair. As I was parked in that seat, going through everything I had done in the past week, nothing I could think of rendered punishable.…

    Pyle poses a two-pronged threat to Fowler: Pyle’s physical threatens to steal away his love and his ideals threaten to burn down his home. With his imperialistic idealism, Pyle assumes that Vietnam needs change. That it needs a paternalistic Third Force “free from Communism and the taint of colonialism-national democracy” (157) to protect the land. Fowler loves things the way they are. War has driven him to Vietnam. War has given him a new home. War has become the status quo. War has provided…

Something was wrong and everyone knew it hours before I had even regained full…

Some would admire it and aspire to uphold the laws and duties that were proclaimed in said writing while others would find small injustices within its words. Between these three individuals, their responses to the Preamble of the Declaration of Independence would be both…
