  • Against Gun Control Misc - 617 words
    Some people are for new gun control laws, but I am one of the many that are against them. Now, it is impossible to pick up a newspaper or watch the evening news without being bombarded with the details of another mass shooting, or another child that was killed while playing with a gun. Unfortunately, there are many people who take the easy way out when it comes to a solution to this problem, they choose gun control. There are many facts that support my position in which I will explain. First of all, numerous studies have proven that there are many protective uses of firearms, but most are masked by the few larger negative gun stories in the news. Mark Johnson, a journalist for Media General ...

  • The Halfeaten Brownie - 421 words
    "THE HALF-EATEN BROWNIE" This story is about my Grandmother. She was the kind of women who played (most) everything safe. She ate all her fruits and veggies and made sure she had all the basic food groups in her meals. She tried very hard to stay healthy. She worried about strange and horrible things happening to her family, especially after all of the recent high school shootings. She worried about my sister Jennie and I who are still in high school. Every Saturday she would visit the farmers market in San Leandro and buy those healthy fruits and veggies. She would also visit the "Brownie Lady" and purchase her favorite chocolate brownie with nuts. Now she wouldn't eat the whole brownie at ...

  • Arm Teachers To Stop School Violence - 377 words
    Arm Teachers to Stop School Shootings? How often do we open the newspaper or turn on the television and see there has been another school shooting? It seems as though it is happening more and more everyday. Violence in schools seems to be on the rise. And now we are faced with the possibility of weapons willingly going into our schools to "protect our children." It is asked should we arm teachers to stop school shootings? I do not believe Arming teachers is a good idea. Teachers should not bring any kind of weapons into the classroom. I am a mother and I hate to think that the person I send my son to everyday could possibly have a gun or another dangerous weapon in her desk or somewhere else ...

  • Tv Violence - 1,208 words
    Television was invented as a means of providing entertainment and began with shows such as "Leave It To Beaver" and "Lassie". Throughout the years, though, television, along with it's counterpart, the movie, has evolved into perhaps one of the most graphic displays of violence and is having a large effect on the children of our society. It is thought by many that television and movies are the leading factor in the violence and aggression that many children display in today's world. During the past few years, there have been countless cases of children acting out with violence reported by the media. One of the most widely known and talked about acts is that of the numerous school shootings. T ...

  • American - 503 words
    I am an American. I think it is the best place to live on earth. There are many problems in this world and the United States is the best country in the earth. We have many problems, but we can fix them a lot easier than other countries. We have the worlds greatest military and economy. Those are just a few reasons why I am proud to be an American. The United States includes all of the fifty states and they are united, which means we will work together and accomplish anything. I think one of the greatest accomplishments is going to the moon.

  • College Notebook - 2,641 words
    In Great Expectations, Charles Dickens depicts men and women as existing within different social spaces. With the exception of Estella, who travels from Satis House to London, all of Dickens's female characters are contained within the home. Men, on the other hand, have a social existence which their female counterparts lack. Pip, for example, constantly moves between the private space of the home and the public space of London itself. Joe Gargery, though often confined to the forge, has a social existence at the Three Jolly Bargemen, the local tavern. Unlike Dickens, Elizabeth Barrett Browning does not confine her female characters to the home in her novel-poem Aurora Leigh. Aurora is a wom ...

  • Public Vs Private - 834 words
    When we started talking about private vs. public schools in class a lot of feelings were running high I thought. I also thought that not enough of us knew enough to make a knowledgeable judgment. Here is some pro and cons to let you know the truths about private schools and maybe some falsehoods you thought to be true. Some people say private schools offer superior education. To a point this is true, according to studies private schools test scores are significantly higher than public. I would never believe that every public school is bad. I feel children can get a good education in a public school. Public schools also have a lot of kids that do not want to be there, therefore they don't try ...

  • Gun Control - 1,055 words
    ... age..." [I]t is not simply who has the abortion that leads to the lower crime rate...but the ability of the woman to choose better timing for childrearing that lowers criminality." (Los Angeles Daily News, August 8, 1999, pp. 1, 18) What about the Brady Bill and other gun control measures? Didn't the Brady Bill play a big part in reducing gun crime? See GunCite's analysis of that claim. Four scholars discuss "Does Gun Control Work?" in PBS's moderated panel discussion, Think Tank (aired June 3, 1995). What can be done about violent crime? To read where enforcement of the numerous, already existing laws is working and achieving dramatic results in reducing gun related violence and homicid ...

  • Youth Violence And Television - 1,606 words
    Youth Violence and Television Youth Violence Do The Young Ever Listen? It would be safe to say that American society is preoccupied with Television. If one asks the question, "How much violence is on television?" One finds that the level of violence has remained relatively constant over the last 2 decades. Most of the violence is directed mainly to the young viewers. All most all the television show depict violence in one form or another. If an average child watches 2 to 4 hours of television a day, then by the time he/she is in high school he/she would have seen over 8,000 murders and more than 100,000 acts of violence (Eron et al., 220). Recent research acknowledges that televised violence ...

  • Music - 742 words
    Does the music that is produced today have a direct affect on what teenagers in America will do? This is a question that many people over the last couple of years have asked constantly. With the recent Columbine incident, as well as the increase in school shootings, many people feel there is something to blame for the violence. In situations like these, art forms are usually the easiest to blame. There is no way to blame one person for the crimes at hand, and no one would like to believe that they just poorly raised their own children. Suddenly someone steps in and sees the teen listened to some sort of music, which is not acceptable by parents standards, and you have a culprit. The problem ...

  • Paper On Gun Cdontrol - 1,503 words
    There is a famous quote, which states: "Guns don't kill people, people kill people." This quote is technically true. But if there are no guns, it will be a whole lot more difficult for people to kill people. Sure people could use different weapons such as knives and golf clubs to kill people. But the victim will have a significant better chance of defending him or herself from a weapon other than firearms. I was born in Tokyo, Japan and moved to the United States when I was six. I still go visit my relatives and friends in Japan every other year. "Japan - described as having the strictest controls in the world - bans private possession of firearms except by people who need them for official ...

  • Terrorism - 1,243 words
    I know the assignment was to deal with a certain aspect of terrorism, but I can't seem to keep my opinions based on one kind without comparing it to other acts of terrorism. Terrorism is defined in Webster's New World Dictionary as, "to use force or threats to intimidate, etc., especially as a political policy." Intimidate is similarly defined as, "to make afraid, as with threats." Threats is a common word used in both definitions and when people are threatened, they feel terror therefore they are terrorized. Terrorism doesn't always come with the stereotypical Russians or Middle Eastern rebels that want to attack the US. Terror can come from all ages, races, political beliefs, and countries ...

  • Gun Control Put And End To Violence - 1,294 words
    A child lies on his parents bedroom floor with a gunshot wound in his chest. His best friend stands over him, gaping. The nine-year-old boys eyes dart from the blood oozing from his friend to his own shaking index finger, still clutched on the trigger of the gun. It was not supposed to happen this way. The gun was not supposed to be loaded. They should not have been snooping in the first place. But this scene has happened before, in countless different settings, with countless different children. It must be stopped, and the best way to do this is with stricter gun control laws. Guns are instruments of death, and there is no pleasant way to put it. For instance, it is three times more likely ...

  • Insanity Is It In Our Schools - 1,773 words
    What exactly is the definition of insanity? Insanity is being in a mental state of mind that does not allows you to make correct decisions on events that are occurring at that moment. But this definition is not always the same through out the United States. One persons definition is not always the same as the next. This comes into conflict when trying to decide someones fate in court cases, and this is especially important when it involves a minor that has committed a serious crime. As an example to the seriousness of some of the crimes, look at all of the school shootings that have been occurring throughout the United States. What are we to do with young children that are now sentenced to p ...

  • Gun Control - 378 words
    Why is it that the government wants to take away our guns? It is a growing issue these days with murders, gun fights, and recent school shootings. Are guns that important for people to have them in the first place? The National Rifle Association (NRA) sure thinks so; that is why they are fighting to protect our gun rights. I think that it isn't guns that kill people its people that kill people, and that if there were no guns that people would find other ways of killing. Why do people want to take away one of the few effective ways of protecting ourselves? People want to take away our guns because they think that it will stop murders, but it won't because people will find other ways of killin ...

  • Modern Music - 1,151 words
    In an age of error the most influential thing in a child and or a teenagers life is music. Whether it be Reggae, Hip Hop, Gangster Rap, R&B, Oldies Rock, Latin, or Heavy Metal it still has a way to overpower a persons mind no matter how old they are. Right now pretty much everybody that I talk to when I am on the Internet like Rap. I dont understand how people could listen to non-stop cursing and fast-paced lyrics. Even though my opinion of the music isnt so great the singers have to get some credit for being able to recite poetry in such a manner. I prefer the heavier stuff like Slipknot, KoRn, or Kittie because I enjoy talented people who play their own instruments, and personally I like v ...

  • The Hardships Of A Teen Christian - 474 words
    Teen Christians have to deal with a lot of pressures like when at school, because when a Christian teen does talk about what they believe in they are mock or criticized. And when the fact that when a teen does believe in Jesus it causes them to lose friends so that causes teens to not want to be with god, or talk about it because of what there friends will think and do to them. Their friends want them to go out to parties where there are drugs, alcohol, sex, and violence. And if a teen has just recently become a Christian and was living life like that then they have to deal with harder problems like facing there problems a different way. And when you go from living bad to doing good you real ...
