O'Keeffe did not care much for her aunt though; she once referred to her as, "the headache of my life." She did, however, have some respect for her aunt's strict and self disciplined character.

Should It Be Legal For Women To Have Abortions In The State Of Georgia? - 505 words
This has been a controversial question for many years now. Some people dont even think twice about having an abortion. Others have a lot to say about the subject. For instance, not only is abortion murder, but it is also a sin despite the current law in Georgia. One reason why abortion should be illegal in Georgia is that the Bible says that it is wrong. Abortion is killing a human being. The Bible says, Thou shalt not kill (Ex. 20:13 KJV). This is one of the Ten Commandments. The Bible also explains, Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb. I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations (Jer. 1:5 KJV). This statements sh ...

'Well the label says Stacy Conover. That's a girls name.' Complained the second girl. 'Jan, it can be a guy's name too.' This sort of argument occurs at almost every gallery. It isn't easy to settle either. Art done by men does not always look masculine nor does art by women always look feminine. The question that is posed is: Can you tell the difference between a mans ...

International Terrorism - 1,431 words
INTERNATIONAL TERRORISM By John Freel. This was a very difficult project for me to carry out, coming from an area were racial discrimination is almost non existent were only sometimes does religious bigotry raise it's ugly head, but not nearly in the proportions of this project.

Motives For Exploration - 816 words

Thus; Spain, France and England began sending out conquistadors and explorers to the uncharted terrains of the new continent.

Approximately two thousand hunters and cowboys annually visited Ft. Griffin. Their money and existence attracted gamblers and prostitutes alike, quickly giving Ft. Griffin the reputation as the craziest town in Texas. Docs stay was cut short when he was again arrested for gambling which was more than likely, a sign of showing a newcomer unwelcomeness rather than upholding the law. Holliday got the point and swiftly left Fort Griffin. John finally reached Denver in the summer of 1875. He assumed the alias of Tom Mackey in order to start a new life an ...

Causes Of Civil War - 1,267 words
There were many causes for the American civil war. Some causes were underlying and some were immediate but all were vital in the cause for the American civil war. The differences in the lifestyles between the north and the south were an underlying cause. The south had an economy that was based almost entirely on agriculture. The north on the other hand was an economy almost solely dependent on industry and commercialism. This caused tension between the two sides on many different occasions. Another underlying cause of the American civil war was the different places people lived. People from the north lived predominantly in cities and people from the south lived mainly in rural areas. Each si ...
