No Turning Back will inspire us to recognise all the countless graces God had have given us in our life. Despite what had happened to Fr. Donald Calloway, God was still there and he didn't leave him. God was there to guide him each step of the way even if he didn't know who he was. The movie expresses our Lord's infinite mercy and faithfulness. We should always make God the center of our life. When my older brother died, i lost everything. I started to question God. Why did you end his journey so fast? Why? Then, I realised that maybe his purpose here on earth is done and maybe God needs him in heaven. God has never left me. He is there when i start doubting my self, when i start questioning my existence. God has always been present in my life. I have always seek the Lord’s guidance in all my decisions. His answers are always right on time. In all my decision making, he is there. Like Fr. Donald Calloway, I was drawn into the wrong direction when my older brother died. The only way our faith restores, is in God’s forgiveness. Our actions has its consequences. From all the happenings in my life, I learned that God loves us unconditionally. Our suffering results from the sinful action ourselves and. I believed that we go through all the pain and suffering because God wants us to learn; Learn from our mistakes so in the future, we would know how to handle it and we wouldn't repeat what had happened. We have the will on whether we should sin, or not. There’s no limit to God’s love to us. Despite all the sins we make, he still love us unconditionally. God will always be here to support us, to take care of us, to protect us. I learned a lot of lessons, after watching the movie. God always has something for us, we shouldn't underestimate the things he could do. We should never give up, we were given this life because God knows that we are strong enough to handle it, to live it. We shouldn't focus on the negative side, we should keep in mind that God wouldn’t give us this problem, if we couldn't handle it. Everything happens for a reason, in God’s time and will. Someday everything will make sense to us, keep reminding yourself that everything happens for a reason. God knows what is right and what is wrong for us. Trust God.…...

Turning the Tables

...Turning The Tables Ancient roman civilization, a time of prosperity, quarrel, and new ideas, ideas that have brought Rome to the forefront of the ideal civilization. The reason I say ideal is this, Rome’s government adopted a central idea of “libertas” the Greek word for liberty or freedom, and even though this concept was merely passive, this concept became a triumph throughout the roman public to have freedom from a superior dictator. During a time of establishment of new government there were two historians by the names of Sallust, which was an author at the end of the diminishing Late Republic era; and Tacitus an author that was observing an era of new beginnings, called the Early Empire. Although these two historians wrote around the same time span, their views on the time period and government were completely different. During the Late Republic era the government was in the midst of change, the policy of “ Res Publica “ is being compressed and almost discarded. Sallust as a historian around this time period analyzes the late republic, and the way he records the information at time is very interesting. When comparing Tacitus’s primary text to Sallust’s, the depth of detail Sallust shows gives me the impression that the historian was a strong supporter of the government in place. I believe since his exert of text was in such detail, Sallust symphonizes with the Plebeians explaining why the oppressed class should have their Res Publica. Flourishing late......

Turning 5

...no difficulty adapting to the "practice" kindergarten activities the children were asked to do. Kelly was generally cooperative, avoided getting distracted, and stayed on task. Kelly did not get upset when mild stress occurred (such as an instruction to hurry up). The teacher recommended that Kelly be given more and more responsibility for self management and care at home and at the preschool in preparation for kindergarten. He performed in the average range on tests of vocabulary e.g., naming a picture and providing an antonym or synonym for a word), and the ability to retell a story. The teacher thought you should engage in more reading aloud, and encourage Kelly to tell stories, perhaps so that you could write them down and read them back to him. Kelly is a bit behind where the teachers would like him to be in terms of being able to count, understand quantitative relationships, and classify objects. The teacher recommends computer math games, board games or dice games involving the use of numbers. Kelly had a real knack for the art projects the teachers had the students do, and really got interested in the pre-math activities involving working with blocks and geometric shapes. The teacher reports that your scores on the parenting questionnaire put you slightly above average in terms of affection and warmth displayed toward your child.

Parker's Back

...In the short story “Parker’s Back,” Christian writer Flannery O’Connor introduces her readers to O.E. Parker and Sarah Ruth and their relationship. On the surface the story covers the increasingly tattooed Parker’s inexplicable attraction towards uptight Sarah Ruth and their ill-fated marriage. However, O’Connor wrote much more into her short story than just the obvious narrative. Through contrasting characters, symbolism, and allusions, O’Connor communicates a deeper message of redemption to her readers as she explores God’s calling of even the most distant and hostile individuals. Straight from the start of the story O’Connor begins to contrast her two main characters. Sarah Ruth is described as “plain, plain,” with skin “drawn as tight as the skin on an onion” and eyes “grey and sharp like the points of two icepicks” (219). This description evidences the lifelessness and harsh unforgiving nature of Sarah Ruth. Parker is less directly characterized but it is revealed that he is an open sinner – admitting to fornication, gambling, and swearing – and was almost entirely covered in extraordinarily colorful tattoos. Sarah Ruth proudly owns up to the Old Testament roots of her name while Parker chooses to go by his last name rather than use his given name, Obadiah Elihue. The reader recognizes that Parker is running from God while Sarah Ruth is living a Pharisaical life of rules and judgments. Sarah is by all indications the best person to lead Parker to God but in the end is...

Dylan who was having trouble with his sight at the age of 44 he was blind. “A Father’s Story” This short story is about a father who wanted to protect his daughter from a crime that she committed that he covered up and keep a secret. Even though there are twists in these two scenes there is ethics that plays a part in them; in the time of need and despair when it comes down to family some are not concern about what the consequences of their decisions are; some of their choices may not be the right ones; some will go to different lengths to protect those they love. First, in the time of need and despair because, when it comes to family some aren’t concern about the consequences of their actions all they know is that they are protecting the one that they love.

Back to School

... 2014 Mrs. Pinnau, Mrs. Horras, Mrs. Hockinson Harlem High School 1 Huskie Circle Machesney Park, IL 61115 Dear Teachers, I am Logan Close, and I am sad yet relieved to be in senior year of my high school career. While no one, including me, enjoys going back to school, it only means that I am one year closer to going to college and becoming a responsible adult in the so-called real world. I am hoping to get into Madison Media Institute with my friends to become game designers. My second choice of schools is NIU as of now. Since I was a young child, around seven to eight years old, I began to leave the sport of baseball and become more into soccer. I eventually dropped baseball to focus more on soccer, and since then I have been involved in at least one soccer league a year, most of the time more than. I am currently trying out for Harlem’s Varsity team. It is tough trying out for varsity compared to junior-varsity, but it will be a fun and amazing experience if I do get placed on the team. In a few days I will find out which team I make it on. In terms of academics, I am decent, but not really much to be proud of. I am known for procrastinating, which then turns into not doing work and not turning it in for a grade. I know I am better than what I put out, but I get bored of school and decide to give up. Even though I know this flaw in me, I do not do much to change it, even when I tell myself I need to and will. As it always goes; the first quarter I try......

A Vietnam War Turning Point

...Many of the incidents that occurred around the Vietnam War could be referred to as “turning points”. Included in this list is the coup against Diem, the 1963 assassination of President Kennedy, the Gulf of Tonkin resolution, 1963 Buddhist riots, and the 1964 United States Presidential elections. In addition, the attack on the U.S.S. Maddox in 1964 was also a turning point for America’s involvement in the war. On August 2, 1964, the Maddox’s radar detected five patrol boats. “When the boats were less than 10,000 yards away, the destroyer fired three shots across the bow of the lead vessel.” (Andrade & Conboy,1999) In response, the North Vietnam boat launched a torpedo. The Maddox fired again, this time to kill, and hit the second North Vietnam boat just as it launched two torpedoes. Badly damaged, the boat hobbled home. On August 4, 1964, the U.S.S. Turner Joy and the Maddox believed they were again the subjects of attacks by patrol boats from North Vietnam. It is believed today, that these attacks did not in fact occur and they were reports from jittery radar and sonar operators (Andrade & Conboy, 1999). These were considered to be the first two attacks by the North Vietnamese against the U.S. For this reason it would be considered a major turning point in the conflict. These attacks by the North Vietnamese against the U.S. boats was the first intentional act of violence against the U.S.. America responded to this by creating the Gulf of Tonkin resolution.

American History Turning Points

...Major Historical Turning Points of America: Essay I Brian Tui Strayer University Dr. Donna Reeves History 105 January 19, 2013 Abstract What are the major turning points in American’s timeline that helped shaped it into the amazing country that it is today? What was the impact of those turning points on today’s American culture? This essay will give us a tour through two major turn points in America. The first being the “Turning point of the civil war” and the second being the “Turning point of Industrialization and Urbanization”. In the “Turning point of the civil war” we will peer into several possible outcomes of the “Reconstruction Period had Abraham Lincoln survived”. In the “Turning point of Industrialization and urbanization we will also investigate “Industrializations effect on the average working American” and touch on “How state courts served to discriminate against non-white citizens and immigrants”. Finally we will conclude with “The New America”. My view on how the events of the past shaped America into the wonderful nation I am so proud of today. Turning Point of the Civil War America could not be the honored country that it is today had it not been for the turning point of the civil war. In the mid-1800s the Northern and Southern states were divided on many differences. A major difference that lingered after the signing of the Constitution was slavery. You have the Northern statesmen who firmly oppose slavery and the Southern......

Christianity Turning the Other Cheek

...Christianity practices the teachings of Jesus in “turning the other cheek” rather than retaliating against evil attacks like other religions suggest an “eye for an eye.” Jesus was tortured, degraded, judged and ultimately killed because he loved the people of the world, the same people who killed him he gave his life for. Christianity preaches that God wants his followers to be merciful like his son in turning the other cheek and loving his enemies. “We are told that we are not to resist evil but to turn the other cheek. The world assumes that evil must be resisted by every means available. We are told to love our enemies and bless those who curse us. The world assumes that friends are to be loved and enemies hated.”(Smith, p.212) If Jesus had not turned the other cheek and sacrificed himself for all of mans’ sins God would not be loving or forgiving of man and there would be no promise of eternal life which would take away life’s true meaning. The Bible clearly states that we are to love our enemies and be merciful and that doing so will yield a great reward for these holy actions. "But love your enemies, do good, and lend, expecting nothing in return. Your reward will be great, and you will be children of the Most High; for he is kind to the ungrateful and the wicked. Be merciful, just as your Father is merciful."(Luke 6:35-36). Many followers of the Christian faith may not fully understand why Jesus is asking them to love their enemies. Why should we love those...

No Turning Back and Freshman Year

...Chad Jenkins 4853474 SLS 1501 No Turning Back & Freshman Year Bryan Anderson knew his situation very well. He knew things were going to suck, and patience would be needed to get himself to move and function efficiently once again. He knew in order to succeed, he could not be coddled, and he learned to appreciate how hard his mother and his therapists were on him because he knew this would help him in the long run. I’ve come to my own realization of something rather similar here in college. Teachers no longer baby us, rather they expect us, as adults to be able to work without constant pressure or surveillance, which we were constantly under in high school. This means more newfound responsibilities for me as well as the other freshmen, and it also serve s as a means of increased freedom. I appreciate that professors are not coddling me, because this is teaching me responsibility and self-reliance, which will definitely be crucial in my future success. It of course is a huge adjustment, and was initially pretty difficult to keep up with all the new requirements and the various assignments I had been assigned. Yes, I did miss a few assignments, such as this essay, and an online math quiz, but both of those miscues have opened my eyes and are forcing me to play closer attention. This very much correlates with Bryan constantly falling, and getting up, and his attitude to learn from his mess ups that helped him push forward. With the......

Ti Turning

...worlds metal industry. Ti Scrap vs Ti Turning Titanium is a key Raw Material to Manufacture Ferro-Titanium 65-70% Grade. The capacity of Nimji Plant is to Manufacture 200 Tons/Month. At present we are Manufacturing on an average 40 Tons/Month as we don’t have orders and our competitors are selling FeTi much Cheaper. It is being observed that if we reduce the price by $0.1/kg we will be competitive in market. 160 Tons/ Month Of Capacity is being Un-utilized. This Un-utilized capacity which is an liability now can be a asset if the plant runs at maximum capacity. For the production of FeTi 65-70% grade, 70% of Ti is required. Hence to produce 200 Tons of FeTi 65-70% grade, we require 140 Tons of Titanium. At present we are using 50%Ti Scrap and 50% Ti Turnings. The cost of Ti turning and Ti scrap is Rs 190/kg and Rs 322/kg respectively. The Present Cost of Titanium in the production of 200 tons FeTi (65-70%) will be Rs 3,58,40,000. If we use only Ti Turning the cost of Titanium in the production of FeTi (65-70%) will be Rs 2,66,00,000. Thus if we use only Ti turning our Per Month saving will be Rs 92,40,000. Drawbacks of Ti Turning Titanium turning comes inherently with impurities such as oil, grease and dust. If these turning are used without processing, oil gets burned and is converted into carbon. Thus the Carbon in the final product increases to 5-7%, whereas the desired level of carbon is 0.1%. In order to use Ti turning, it must be processed to remove......

A Turning Point

...A Turning Point Our lives change not only because of decisions we make but also because of the events that are beyond our control. But I firmly believe the most significant changes in our lives are the ones influenced by when we make an impossible decision within an event that is beyond our control. When we encounter these obstacles where there appears to be not right choice – only the lesser evil – we must find it within ourselves to make the right choice an option. In August of 2013, I had found myself at the crossroads of wrong and not right. For most of the early years of my childhood, I hardly spoke and had never managed to make friends on my own. My family didn’t think much of it, assuming I was just a “shy” child. It wasn’t until we moved from the mountains and back into the Sacramento Area did their concern begin to rise. My sister and I were enrolled in the local public school and my sister was quick to make friends, whereas, I was not. My uncle believed I just needed time to warm up to the change of scenery, so he gave it some time and after several months, I still kept to myself. At this point, my uncle tried to give me a little push in the right direction by forcing me to accompany my sister whenever she did things with her friends. “Did you have fun?” He would ask when he showed up to pick us up. “No.” I would say and he would quickly reassure me that there was always next time. After about the fifth time of......

The Morals of Turning

...The Morals of Turning Laura Ross Brown Mackie College Abstract The Morals of Turning Is there such a thing as an ethical vampire? In “To Turn or Not to Turn,” author Christopher Robichaud expresses the different circumstances for times when it is morally okay to turn people into a vampires without their consent. The author describes in detail how consent needs to be given verbally and it cannot be just tacit consent since the consent could be misinterpreted. Also, the author makes a point that the person giving the consent also needs to be informed on the decision they are making or it would be morally wrong to turn a person with the consent if they are not informed fully of all the details. The person that is deciding whether to turn or not, cannot be making the decision while under any kind of duress. The article is convincing due to the author’s tone, purpose, and the audience. The tone of this article is very casual and easy for the audience to understand, but the author is also straight forward with his thoughts. “So Bill needs to get Sookie’s consent before it’s permissible for him to turn her into a vampire” (2010, pp. 10). This statement from the author shows that he is trying to engage with the reader on a nonchalant level. The purpose of this article to enforce that a vampire needs people’s explicit consent before it is morally right to turn them into vampires. “We’ve seen that for consent to count morally it needs to be explicit and it needs to......

The article ‘Spaniards turning to underground economy’ would show how a guy ‘Juan’ from Spain earn a leaving after being laid off from his previous job. The author says that ‘As Spain's recession deepens, more workers like Juan are finding refuge in a growing underground economy’. However the Disadvantage of is that workers in the underground economy are not paying taxes and might also be collecting unemployment and social assistance benefits.

For the case of Juan and the others that turn to the underground economy they are counted as Cyclical unemployment where ‘workers is laid off because the economy is in a recession’ (Parkin, 2012). Unemployment usually leads to lost in income and production and also lost in human capital. Loss of production means a lower consumption and a......

Family - the Turning

...thought of Max never leaves his mind, and he loses his touch for football, immensely changing his comfortable lifestyle back into the reality of his home roots. The understanding of relationships that we gain from this story is the unhealthiness of certain relationships and their implications. The nature of this relationship is built upon Max’s envy for Leaper and the typical ‘older brother bullying’ is used upon Leaper from an early age. Max was the one who originally introduced and fed the idea that Leaper was a bit simple, and Leaper naively took it as a joke and as a mere test of brotherly love. This relationship based upon jealousy and a bullying nature grows worse as the two grow apart and it is undermined through Leaper’s refusal to attend the funeral of their father simply to show Max that he didn’t need him or the rest of the family. As we learnt earlier, the unhealthy nature of this relationship leads to his demise in football and practically ruins his top-class lifestyle. However the people that should be closest and the most supportive to him in these hard times have shun him out which leaves him with almost nowhere to go. At the end of the story, the shark attack which represents the hate ‘biting back’ Max, conveys that this unhealthy relationship based upon Max’s jealousy has been the reason for their separation however now the two are being brought back together in a reunion where Max is now in a position of dependence upon Leaper to save him, and Leaper is......
