What I learned from John L. Lewis?

If there was anything that I learned from John L. Lewis during his heartrending speech it would be that peace, love, and forgiveness can move “mountains.” Throughout his speech I tried putting myself in the shoes of the Africa Americans that were victimized, belittled, and treated like a slave; even though slavery had been deceased. One of the three things that I found stimulating about The Honorable Lewis is that even though a man had been a part of beating him and other fellow African Americans during bloody Sunday, and he still was able to find forgiveness in his heart.

Commuter Life

Being a day student can be stressful. Driving back and forth to campus everyday is tedious and mentally exhausting. However, I am okay with being a commuter. I believe that I have made the right decision by living at home.

Gun Control

A gun can be a very dangerous object to all living things, but what object created by man is not dangerous? What inventions has man created that does not have many dangers and even the probability of death occurring. Most things we have created have their big positives and their big negatives. Guns, if in the wrong hands, are a very dangerous thing, but in the right hands a very good thing. Many peoples livelihood depends on a gun, unlike some who get one to be cool or to look tough. We should not have our guns taken away, but instead the gun seller should be able to do more and deeper background checks, even have papers of making sure the person is not criminal insane from a doctor before they sell the gun to a person.

Pageant or Program?

“How did your pageant go?“ “I heard you did really well in your pageant.” The number of times I was asked similar questions was a surprise. I was grateful that people were curious about the program. I knew friends and family were keeping up with me while I was away, which was comforting. However, each time the word “pageant” slipped out of someone’s mouth, I had the sudden urge to correct them. The Junior Miss Program, which is now referred to as the Distinguished Young Women (DYW) Program is no pageant. Though there are a few similarities, this program is so much more.

You Are Beautiful

Beauty: “The quality or aggregate of qualities in a person or thing that gives pleasure to the senses or pleasurably exalts the mind or spirit” –Webster’s Dictionary.  Our minds have been trained to think that there is only one real “beauty”. Question yourself, what really is beauty known as?  When you are looking through a magazine or watching a commercial, that is advertising “real” beauty.  What you think beauty is, is determined by what the staggering eyes of society thinks? God said that all of His children are beautiful.  That means if you’re a whopping two hundred pounds or you are basically skin and bones, He loves you.  Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, not of society.
