A Call to Arms: Renewing America c c c
Drug and crime scenes are a big problem in America which is a country, where the population gets bigger and bigger for every year. Many youngsters choose the wrong places to find help or acknowledgement because their parents have given up on them. Some choose drugs to forget their horrible lives while others choose to murder people or steal to get an inner satisfaction. There could be many reasons for why people do all these things and some we will never understand.

On May 20th, 2000, J.C. Watts held a speech in North Carolina about young people seeking help in all the wrong places. J.C. Watts was a former congressman for the Republican Party but today he is the chairman in his own company which is a large multi-industry in Washington, DC.
In his speech he talks about parents not giving their children the kind of attention and love that they need. And because of that more children are choosing the wrong path, doing drugs and killing each other. “(…) children growing up with very little parental discipline and guidance, which is crucial for helping them develop self-control” – because of this many young people don’t get to learn the differences between right and wrong.
He also says that religion has a lot to do with this problem and it has got to be irrelevant among the youngsters. And he thinks that’s the reason why children nowadays are violent, sexually obsessed and undisciplined.
He also mentions that civilians carrying guns is a big problem because some people misuse it.

There are logos and pathos in the speech especially where he talks about guns and when he says that it is not the children who are responsible for the way the world has turned out to be, but the adults. “And our children are not responsible for the moral free-fall in our public and political institutions. We are”.
Pathos appears in…...

Living Together or Getting Married

...Terri Ruth 1 Kim Oesterle Eng 0099 Nov 1, 2012 Living Together and Getting Married One of the most debatable questions of recent times is whether to live together or get married. Live-in relationships and marriages can be successful with hard work and commitment. In today’s society living together is considered normal compared to the traditions of the past. Years ago it was considered sinful to do so. So, the question is, should a couple live together or get married? You decide. One main reason for doing either type of commitment is for financial gain. Both living together and in marriage gives couples the opportunity for this. When a couple lives together they have larger chances of saving money for their future. This can include saving for things such as, purchasing their first home together, buying new furniture, and even joint saving investments. If they are married they can save financially on health and medical expenses, insurance costs, and everyday living such as utilities and survival needs. A major fallback for the decision of living together is one of tradition. The old fashion society we live in looks down on couples whom cohabitate before marriage. This type of disapproval can cause couples to deny and hide aspects of their relationship putting stress in their every day lives. Their thoughts of happiness and joy begin to turn to thoughts of disgust and they may begin questioning their selves on whether they made the right decision. ...

Married or Not

...Married or not… you should read this. Marriage. “When I got home that night as my wife served dinner, I held her hand and said, I’ve got something to tell you. She sat down and ate quietly. Again I observed the hurt in her eyes. Suddenly I didn’t know how to open my mouth. But I had to let her know what I was thinking. I want a divorce. I raised the topic calmly. She didn’t seem to be annoyed by my words, instead she asked me softly, why? I avoided her question. This made her angry. She threw away the chopsticks and shouted at me, you are not a man! That night, we didn’t talk to each other. She was weeping. I knew she wanted to find out what had happened to our marriage. But I could hardly give her a satisfactory answer; she had lost my heart to Jane. I didn’t love her anymore. I just pitied her! With a deep sense of guilt, I drafted a divorce agreement which stated that she could own our house, our car, and 30% stake of my company. She glanced at it and then tore it into pieces. The woman who had spent ten years of her life with me had become a stranger. I felt sorry for her wasted time, resources and energy but I could not take back what I had said for I loved Jane so dearly. Finally she cried loudly in front of me, which was what I had expected to see. To me her cry was actually a kind of release. The idea of divorce which had obsessed me for several weeks seemed to be firmer and clearer now. The next day, I came back home very late and found her writing...

The Day I Got Married

...No one knew I would awaken as a young eighteen year old and fall asleep as a married adult. My husband still believes I married him only for a day off of work and Bob Evans breakfast. The day I got married was a surprise to us all. We ourselves nor our families were expecting the day’s events. My morning started off quite typical as my fiancé and I were deciding on the breakfast he should cook as I was getting ready for work in our little one bedroom apartment. Dustin my fiancé, decided to make french toast while I showered. That is what started it all. After my shower we sat down to eat breakfast, but after the first bite we realized french toast that tasted like a cast iron skillet wasn’t going to work. We were full of jokes 10 years ago, just as we are today. After the epic fail of breakfast, we started talking about our life together, and I said, “Hey, let’s get married.” Of course he laughed at me while asking if I was serious. “Why not,” I said,” We have the rings, we can drive to Virginia and I’ll take the day off of work.” After a little talking and deciding we got ready and had our day planned out. We set off for directions and a quick tutorial from a coworker of my fiancés. Of course they thought we were crazy, but why not? We started our drive to Virginia with smiles on our faces, nervousness throughout our bodies and the growls of hungry stomachs wanting breakfast. After the six hour drive to the Virginia Courthouse, finding our way through the......

He He

...Scenes from a death When J came out of the door for the first time he almost felt as if the illusion had spread its aura beyond the premises of that lugubrious hospital where the air was occupied by the rancid medicines and the stench of death which mingled more frequently than one expected. He had put up a cigarette to his mouth before even opening the door pretending his eagerness to put out the stress which in actuality did not existed but he almost forgot to light it up when he saw a legion proceeding towards the gate with their murmurs which were more of noises than whispers. For a moment J thought that these people must have been mislead by someone and have mistook this hospital for a place of some deity but soon the contradiction prevailed as two men from the crowd made haste to open the door followed by another four men who carried a body which seemed dead by all means but in truth there was still some life left in it. During the course of action the murmurs changed to convulsions but if one gave a little attention one could easily make out that it were prayers which came out incoherently from the trembling voices. Looking at such a commotion two ward boys from the hospital came out to dispose of the situation but on realizing the fervour of the event they instead rushed forward to help the patient whose life frailly depended on the efficacy of those workers. Soon the patient was taken in the labyrinth of the hospital rooms where it was natural for one to get lost...

To Be Married or to Be Single

...To Be Married or To Be Single? Ortavious Byrd Course COM/155 November 17, 2013 MICHELE ARMENTROUT How does one decide to be single or to be married? Which is truly the best decision? Does marital status determine how stable, successful, or even happy an individual can be? While there are several ways to view life, singles or married. Certain studies show that marital status does have a tremendous effect on the outcome of one’s success, stability, happiness, and sometimes even health. Several studies conclude that married couples generally live longer than singles. Marriage is also a great tradition and ritual in American and several other cultures. Despite these finding, being single is now trending at an all-time high. Today’s fading marital rate, which was at 72 percent in 1970, is now at only 59 percent and desperately needs to be restored. These days, there are not any real pressures to get married. In fact, there are several justifiable reasons not to get married. One of the most glamorous reasons for being single is freedom. Singles have freedom to do whatever, whenever, however, and with whomever one wants. What is there not to like about this portion of the “fabulous single life”. One can also enjoy the opportunity to completely focus on oneself, without the added pressures of a......

Married to Aspergers

...Married To Asperger’s Introduction We all remember the awkward kid in school who was a loner and unable to sustain friendships. What happens when this kid grows up, will they marry, can they marry, is it possible for this person to have a successful marriage? What barriers are there and how can they be dealt with so an other-centered extravert can have a fulfilling marriage with a self-absorbed person with Asperger’s syndrome? People with Asperger’s syndrome have difficulties in relationships in general. Marriage is probably is the most interpersonal of all relationships. I believe it may be difficult for an extravert to have a fulfilling marriage. Asperger’s syndrome is one of the Autism spectrum disorders that are characterized by abnormalities of social interaction and communication. Those that are diagnosed with the syndrome often associated exhibit restricted behavior or activities such as being fascinated and glued to a certain activity and often have a general delay in the development of their speech (Janzen, 1999). Because of this, there is a very high likelihood that the people diagnosed with this syndrome will have a problem when it comes to the development of friendships (IAP, 2011). They may engage in a one sided conversation about their topic of interest without necessarily taking into consideration the feeling of the listener and whether he or she is interested in their topic of......

Dali’s Contribution to Surrealism Is Married by Controversy. for Many Critics, He Exploits Rather Than Complements the Ideas in the Manifesto.

...Surrealism & Design Dr Dara Waldron / Essay Patryk Klos K00179392 Vis Com Y2 Dali’s contribution to surrealism is married by controversy. For many critics, he exploits rather than complements the ideas in the Manifesto. Discuss this statement in relation to The Great Masturbator (1929), The Persistence of Memory (1931), and Destino (2003). I will start explore this statement from author of the Manifesto of Surrealism. Andre Breton was a French psychiatrist who was using Freud theory to heel his patient during the First World War. When war was coming to end he come up with an idea that science was not a solution to give peace to the world. He discovers that the answer could exist in our subconscious mind. He founded a group of artists focused on exploration of the world of dream and subconscious mind. On the beginning of the movement Breton defines principles of Surrealism in Manifesto of Surrealism. “Surrealism is based on the belief in the superior reality of certain forms of previously neglected associations, in the omnipotence of dream, in the disinterested play of thought. It tends to ruin once and for all other psychic mechanisms and to substitute itself for them in solving all the principal problems of life.” (Breton, 1969) Dali painting The Great Masturbator done in 1929, same time when he join Surrealists group and meet his future wife Gala. Painting is considered the first surrealist work, Dali symbolize his sexual fascinations, at the same time,......

The Choice of Being Married

...The Choice of Being Married Is marriage the best choice in today’s society? Once upon a time marriage was viewed as a vow between couples before God. It wasn’t socially acceptable to live with your significant other unless you were married. It wasn’t socially acceptable to have a child if you weren’t married. Those rules have changed. Why would you want to get married and spend thousands of dollars just to possibly spend more money to end the marriage? In 1950 you were not allowed to live with your significant other unless you were married. It was unheard of. You would live at home as a lady until you were wed before God. Today there are many couples who live together and do not ever have to walk the aisle and legally bind two individuals. Marriage today is a status saying it’s official and if I want out of this relationship it’s going to be harder than ever. I hear more stories about married couples getting a divorce than I do about them celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary. In 1950 you were forbidden to have children out of wedlock. If you were even thinking the thoughts that would lead up to creating children before you were married you could have been sent away. In today’s culture there are many children that are born to very loving parents who can raise the child just the same and not be married. Being married doesn’t make you a better couple or give you superpowers. It might be a 2 tax break once a year but not enough to......

To the Man I Married Analysis

...Literary Piece #1 To the Man I Married Angela Manalang Gloria I You are my earth and all that earth implies: The gravity that ballasts me in space, The air I breathe, the land that stills my cries For food and shelter against devouring days. You are the earth whose orbit marks my way And sets my north and south, my east and west, Your are the final, elemental clay The driven heart must turn to for its rest. If in your arms that hold me now so near I lift my keening thoughts to another one, As trees long rooted to the earth uprear Their quickening leaves and flowers to the sun, You who are earth, O never doubt that I Need you no less because I need the sky! II I can not love you with a love That outcompares the boundless sea, For that were false, as no such love And no such ocean can ever be. But I can love you with a love As finite as the wave that dies And dying holds from crest to crest The blue of everlasting skies. In this poem, a woman metaphorically compares her husband to the earth. She considers the man she married as the “earth” that nourishes her and. Her husband provides her all her needs. Her husband gives her all the means to live. In the poem, she claims that the man she married is the reason why she survives. He is also a sure shelter to protect her from harm. He is the direction of her life. He is also the one whom she wants to be with until her life is gone. With much acknowledgement to her love for her husband, she also mentions of “another one” to......

Rich, Married or Bouth?

...1. Have you ever heard about living four years longer if you won an Oscar, and not just were nominated? In the text “The Sandra Bullock trade” by David Brooks, he is talking about how the Oscar nomination can make your life longer. In a research by Donald A. Redelmeier and Sheldon M. Singh, they have concluded that people, who won an Oscar live four years longer than people who only was nominated. Another thing David is telling us is “The daily activities most associated with happiness are sex, socializing after work and having dinner with others.” (P3 L6). David is telling us that in a relationship that is between happiness and income is complicated, and how being married can imagine a psychic gain equivalent to more than $100.000 a year. If you got a lot of money and used them all on clothes and shoes, is the question can pointless shopping make you happier? The text “But Will It Make You Happy?” by Stephanie Rosenbloom is telling the reader about we rather would e.g. dive with dolphins, than e.g. buying new gadgets for your car, because is make us happier.

From Blind Date to Married

...From Blind Date to Almost Married Hands trembling with the fear of rejection as I turn the key of my 2013 Chrysler 200. I could feel my heart pounding deep in the pit of my stomach. I drove with anticipation to the meeting place, our blind date. I pulled over several times. Thinking to myself, I can’t do this, I cannot be rejected. I pulled back into traffic and drove to the Hard Times club where we had discussed meeting only hours before. I stepped out of the car and took a deep breath, walked up to the door and pulled the door open and that’s where it all began. This was the day that went from blind date too soon to be married. Let’s go back to where it all began. Amanda my best friend of 15 years suggested that I join an online dating site. She had met her husband on Plenty of Fish the service was free, so I really had nothing to lose. I joined, set up a profile, added pictures and almost immediately started receiving emails from all the fish out there. I received a notice that Thomas had viewed and liked my profile. I scrolled through his public profile and checked out his pictures I thought he was pretty handsome, so I sent him back a notification of interest. We exchanged a few emails before finally deciding it would be easier to text. After just a few days of chatting online and through text we decided to meet, in public, and have a drink. I opened the door of the bar; he was standing next to the pool table. I took a deep breathe, swallowed the huge knot...

Married Couples at the Workplace

...Being a married couple at the workplace has a good and bad consequences to the relationship with our spouse. Here are the advantages and disadvantages. 1. Advantages *Driving together to your work When you work in the same office and you have the same shift hours, you can drive together to your workplace. Many couples have only one car and it is often a problem to find a good solution when they work in a different company. They can decide to buy a second car but this is really expensive or one of the two partners needs to take the bus/train/bicycle or search for carpooling. Working in the same office will ease this decision and save a lot of money. *Lunch together It is easier to lunch together because most companies have a break for all employees together. They can eat together and talk to each other just like they should do at home. There are several companies where you can eat a warm lunch and couples don't need to prepare a warm meal at home. If they can't enjoy this possibility, couples can prepare together their meal at home. They save time because they don't need to wait until the other partner comes home from work. 2. Disadvantages *Dealing with private problems Every marriage has its ups and downs and some private problems may arise. Many couples who work in the same company have difficulties to separate work and private problems. It is important to make good agreements that you don't show your private problems at work and that you don't discuss it with......

Married Couple?

...Should Couples Live Together Before Married? As I grew up in my mother house it was instilled in me that you should never live with a man unless you’re married and since that was strongly installed in me that is what I live by I didn’t have the chance to live together with my husband while we were dating. It was difficult during our first year of marriage. We argued a lot, mostly for reasons like leaving clothes on the floor in the bathroom and not cleaning up after his self. Living together before making our vows would have reassured us about the lifelong commitment and basically letting us see what we were getting are self into. From my own experience, I believe that couples should live together before getting married, so they can start to know each other on a closer, more personal level and also see how compatible they are with each other. When you live together with your partner you start to know each other on a closer more personal level. For starters you learn what your partner likes and dislikes, I think there’s a lot to find out about your partner and from your partner; and I think the only way to do this is move in together. For example I didn’t know my husband liked to watch porno videos or sleep with the house freezing cold! Believe it or not, its little details like these that can often make or break a relationship. Second, you learn what kind of bad habits you and your partner have and whether or not you can get rid of them or live with all the bad habits.......
