Today July 4th, a woman was found standing on the Statue of Liberty. She stood on this immense statue due to her protest of migrant children and their families. The woman was propped on this statue for about three hours. She is apart of a group of protesters and said that she wouldn’t come down until “the children are released”. This arouses a great question that we as Americans have to answer. Are you willing to fight for a cause that is vital for your country? Authorities tried to talk her out of it, but she literally stood for what she believed in. She eventually came down ,but she teaches us a lesson about sticking to your will.
A few days ago I went to a close by park. I was so excited to see wildlife in its environment. I love nature, but when I saw all of the pollution in the water and in grasslands, I was astonished. As we walked, I saw fast food bags, napkins, beer bottles, and even shoes. I didn’t expect to see shoes in a pond! I began to see an immense amount of trash! This was a vital topic to write about because animals and plants live in an area that we decided to pollute. My younger sister simply said “it looks like someone used the pond as a trash can.” If a five year old can spot out the truth about nature, why have we done nothing to change? Walk for a while, take in what you see and question. We are so used to seeing something as simple as a chip bag or soda bottle laying in the grass that we no longer question if it’s wrong. It’s simple. It’s wrong. It’s pollution. Please think before you use our beautiful world as your personal trash can.
One way or another we come to a time in our lives where we are unsure. We don’t know how or what the next step will be. Life is like a mystery. You do not know who will be in your life, where you will come from, or what events will take place, but it will be up to you to find your outcome. Simply doing the minimal pleases some and putting in a little extra time pleases others. There will always be those who take the gift of life and make it harder or discourage others. Through our life span in this universe, we will always be on a path. This path is completely bumpy, hard, dark, and frightening. There is only one way that mankind can have a clear path. It is through HIM! If we could look past our selfish ways and follow HIM, our paths will be brightened! It’s so hard for us to try to come closer to our God because we become too distracted. We think that we can make our own paths clear and solve our own problems, but this is not true! We wonder why we spend so much time on a path that is unclear instead of trying to make it clear with the help of HIM! In this twenty first century, we can become blinded or drawn away from HIS glory, but HIS glory remains since the beginning of time. We don’t all have faith in the same thing, but we all live in a modern day world where we make plenty of choices. You have been to a point where you say “just in case this doesn’t work out and I’m wrong, I’m going to do this as well.” So why can’t we do that with the LORD? We know that our path is dark so why can’t we say “just in case” HE can do what HE said HE could I’ll have some faith. We look to everyday humans who are as lost as us, to solve our problems, when HE can make our path straight!
Think about a future where you wouldn’t have to move a muscle, sounds exciting right? Thanks to new inventions and innovations, it is becoming possible for this to happen. Yes, inventions such as the airplane, smartphone, television, and computer have made our everyday lives easier. But what about a self driving truck? Would you be open to the new creation?
On Tuesday, Uber announced that it would be allowing its self driving truck to drive across Arizona. In February, the truck was sent to drive seven miles without someone riding along and returned safely. By the end of 2018, Starsky expects to be making driverless deliveries. Missy Cummings, an engineering professor at Duke University, called for a “vision test”. While being tested some signs could be mistaken for others due to clarity. In conclusion, Starsky said that its vehicle was ready for public roads with no traffic and selected areas.
Love is something that you know from the start
Love is a feeling you feel with all of your heart
Love is thinking about others before yourself
Love is caring about people and not about wealth
Love is a feeling that is pink
Love is a feeling that makes your heart sink
Love is loving someone like no other
Love is loving someone like your mother
Love is a feeling that God has for you
Love is a feeling that we should have too
You can tell Love by the expression on your face
Love is what makes this world a better place
There is so much that you can do
You can run, jump, and even tie your shoe
You wake up each morning, take a shower, and get dressed
Have you ever noticed that you are more fortunate than the rest
At night most of us sleep peacefully in or bed
A large percentage of kids in other countries don’t even have a place to rest their head
They work all day where they don’t get paid
But we go to school day after day
At school we talk and joke, while eating a healthy lunch
While if other kids saw our food they would just want a nibble or a much
While we watch Snapchat and YouTube
Children lay in hospitals and can’t even move
So just say thanks
Thanks means a lot more than you know
It means you appreciated it enough to let it show
Be grateful because you could lose it all
Think about those children the next time you go to the mall
The words we say is like money stored in a piggy bank
It shows what we are truly worth and if we are frank
No matter if it’s good or bad our words are worth something to the people we say them to
They are important to me and you
People always remember what you said
So don’t just use your tongue, use your head
