    When I was a young girl, I begged and pleaded my mom for a phone. "But mom, everyone has a phone," I told her. She always told me that it didn 't matter what everyone else had, I was not them. That always bothered me because I obviously knew I was not them. The rule in our house was that when my siblings and I turned sixteen we would get a phone.

    The moment that Hawaii Five-O aired on TV when I was 12, I knew that I would be able to count on watching it with my family every time it aired. We put aside our individual tasks and problems and gathered around the TV every Friday to watch Five-O. The shows characters gave prominent examples of leadership, honor, and morals, and many lessons from the show still stick with me today. Hawaii Five-O taught me a lot of things about family and what’s really important, and it brought me closer to my…

    We have seen vast amounts of movies that have been made about revolutions against groups of people. Les Miserable, one of the most notable and recognized musicals of our time is set during the French Revolution. Unfortunately, we see images that tend to glorify the act of revolting against something and while movies like Les Miserable are entertaining, they tend to be lacking in the true facts department. The real French Revolution was horribly bloody and got way out of hand. The original intent…

They make a lot more independent decisions and then just notify the physician as to what they…
