The Tragic Story of Two in Love By June B.

Two families the same in pride, in the town of Verona is where it happens. Where an aged grudge breaks to new fighting and discuss.Where the blood of innocents fill the hands of others.From the fatal injuries of these two rivals, a pair of two in love take their lives. Whose unfortunate misery overthrows, down with their death goes their parents rivalry.

Romeo is the 16 year old son of Montague and Lady Montague. He is in love with Juliet and had a secret marriage with her that only the Friar and Nurse knows about. Romeo is associated with Benvolio, Mercutio, and others in the Montague household. He is a young, shy in a way, and loving person.

Juliet is the 12 year old daughter of Capulet and Lady Capulet. Juliet is a shy young girl who falls in love with the Montague Romeo and keeps it a secret from her mother and father. She is associated with Tybalt who gets killed by Romeo after he killed Romeo’s best friend Mercutio. She is also associated with the Nurse and the Friar as well. I think that the Nurse considers Juliet to be like her daughter.

Statements from a Capulet
June (me): Sir and Lady Capulet, how do you feel about this and what are some of your feelings?
Lady Capulet (crying): I hate what has happend to my Juliet. Why did they take her away from me?!?!
June (me): I am very sorry about your loss. How about you Sir Capulet do you have anything to say?
Sir Capulet: I just want to say that I loved her, she was so young.
June (me): Let's come over here with the Nurse. Nurse! Nurse! Over here! Hi, do you have anything else to add?
Nurse (also crying):Yes, I would like to say that I loved her as if she were my own and she diserved a better life than dying. Juliet was still very young, she was only 12 and that Romeo also diserved better than this he was a sweet boy.
June (me): Thank you for those words Nurse and I am sorry.

Statements from a Montague
June (me speaking to camera crew): Lets go over there with the Montagues to see how they are feeling.
June (me): Sir and Lady Montague what are some of your thoughts about this and what are some feelings that you are feeling right now?
Sir Montague: I loved him, I mean he was my son what more can I say.
June: I am very sorry. Do you have anything to say Lady Montague?
Lady Montague (with tears rolling down her face): My son, my Romeo. (after that it gets silent)

It was said that the Prince will come out soon and set consequences for the ones reponsible for the death of Romeo and Juliet. We are not sure what they are right at this moment, but we will nkow soon. The people that will be put on trial are:Friar, Nurse, Sir and Lady Capulet, and also Sir and Lady Montague. I've been told that they will be asked some questions because of their rivalries and all of their disagreements in the past months.

....My Views of Euthanasia....

Is "mercy" killing a legitimate way to ending someones life?
My stance on mercy killing for euthanasia is kind of bewildered because you don't have to sullenly kill someone for having euthanasia. There are other options besides "mercy" killing like putting that person in a school that can help them slowly so they can understand. I earnestly don't think that mercy killing is a good way to end some one's life unless that person had a good long life and the only thing that is keeping them alive are tubes that help them breath. I belligerently think that besides "mercy" killing the person that has euthanasia there are other options for example, maybe put yourself in that person's shoes what would you do if your child had euthanasia, would you try to help them or kill them? Think about it, some people don't have choices but to do what they did and others do. People don't just get their Luger and shoot their child.

...Euthanasia..."MERCY KILLING"...

Reflecting on Of Mice and Men:
a. Explain George's perspective for what he did to Lennie.
To me I think that it was very hard for George to do what he did to Lennie because to him Lennie was like a brother. Even though George has to take care of Lennie he is still a very protective and caring to Lennie. George does sometimes tell Lennie that he would be better off without him but he never means it.
b. Do you think that was the best thing to do for Lennie?
I actually do think that it was the best thing for Lennie because if George did not pull the trigger Lennie would either be found and shot by Curley or be tortured by Curley and just be miserable for the rest of his life.

Father in Italy Accused of Murder:
a. Using a "quote" to support your response, explain the father's reasons for what he did.
"Late last year, 67-year-old Beppino Englaro, won an intense 10-year legal battle to allow his daughter's feeding tubes to be removed, saying that was her wish."
I think that he wanted to remove his daughter's feeding tubes because couldn't stand to see his daughter suffering. I feel that he didn't want to feel like the only thing that was keeping her alive were the tubes and he didn't want to see her like that.
b. Using a "quote" to support your response, explain if that was the best thing to do for the daughter.
"The court accepted that before the accident, his daughter had expressed a preference for dying over being kept alive artificially."
I think that it was the best thing to do because if she feels that she would prefer to be dead than alive it would be kind of selfish to keep her alive and just for what, to let her suffer more than she already feels?
c. Do you agree or disagree with what the father did? Why?
I actually do agree with the father's decision because wouldn't want to see my child stuck and kept alive only by tubes. I would feel that by pulling the plug I am going to set them free and be in a better place.

Man Kills Family after Losing his Job
a. Imagine and list things that might have been going through the father's mind as he contemplated his "mercy" killing. (In the article, the father's suicide note gives specific evidence of why he did what he did. Elaborate on it.) Specifically, what could he have been negative or paranoid about?
"The bodies were found shortly after the man sent a fax to a local television station stating that he and his wife had both been made redundant and had decided the only way out was to kill themselves and their children."
The parent thought about what they going to do before they did that. In the quote above it says that they had decided the only way out was to kill their childeren and thenselves. I think that the father had many things going through his mind like how scared he was and maybe having second thoughts after looking at his childerens faces.
b.What are some ways that parents can support children (to succeed in life) that do NOT require money?
To me supporting a child doesn't mean buying them everything they want to me it just means loving them because it does't matter if that child has the best bike they need love. The parent can also tell them to try their best at anything they do because in order to make it you have to try your best.

For Ralph I chose Robbie Amell because he can be a good leader to every one. He’s tall and that’s an advantage to get fruits from trees and the hard to reach places. He can help out the little kids out. He can make good decisions that most can agree on. He has a great smile.
For Jack I chose Tom Felton from the movie Harry Potter. I chose him because in the movie his character is mean and bossy and like Jack he expects to be the center of attention. He gets mad if it doesn't go his way. He is a very serious person when he's not the person that is chosen for the job. I also chose Tom to be my Jack because he has that look going for him.

For the role of Piggy I chose Spencer Breslin from the movie The Cat in the Hat. I chose him as my Piggy because he talks a lot and no one really listens to him since he is a little boy and that is similar to Piggy because people don't listen to him just because he is fat. I also had chose to be him because he has a fun and energetic attitude and that helps the character be more alive.

For the role of Simon I chose Liam Aiken from the movie A Seires of Unfortunate Events. I chose Liam to play the role of Simon because he is a very shy guy. He doesn't really joke around. The third reason that I chose him was because he is smart, kind, and does what needs to be done before anything else.

For the role of Roger I chose Daryl Sabara from the movie Spykids. I chose him because he has that mysterious look going for him and just like in the book so is Roger. They both keep to themselves. He can be mean if he needs to be.

Three things that I would change in my story would be:
> that they find the plane that they were in and use teamwork to make a house for shelter.
>instead of finding a conch they find a whistle that the pilot had and use it to find out if anyone else is on the island.
>instead of a choir group Jack and the hunters can be in a school sport like baseball or football.

Instead of the title being Lord of the Flies I would change it to STUCK!

The Bombing of Hiroshima

1)This picture is a picture of a cherry tree in the Chou Park 800 meters away the hypo center and to me looks very peaceful. The tree is losing its leaves and in the back you can see all of the houses and all of the buildings that people work at. It also looks windy. This picture was taken before the bombing all started.

2) This is a picture of a wooden bridge after the bombing and all that's left are the shadows imprinted on the floor of the parapets that hold the bridge together. In the picture instead of the shadows being darker they are lighter than the floor. This bridge is 2,890 feet (880 meters) south-south-west of the hypo center. The shadows give a clue as to the exact location of the hypo center.

3) Here is a survivor from the Hiroshima bombing. Hibakusha is the term widely used in Japan referring to victims of the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. When I look at this picture it makes me feel very sad knowing that innocent people had to go through this and even babies. If the people didn't die they survived and ended up getting scared or very hurt some people probably lost body parts.

4) This picture was drawn by a surviver from the bombing of Hiroshima. This is a picture of people who are suffering from getting hit by the bomb. There is woman on the ground asking for help from the woman that is walking away. In the background there are people on the floor slowly dieing that need medical treatment really bad.

Views on abortion

  1. I think that abortion is wrong and I'm against it.I am PRO- life because:
  • if the woman get's an abortion, she doesn't take responsibility for her actions.
  • It can hurt the person physically.
  • The baby inside the woman's stomach is still a human life.

2. Abortion damages women
"Some people oppose abortion because it can damage the long-term physical and emotional health of women who have an abortion

Abortion is a male plot "They argue that men see the risk of pregnancy as something that stops men having sex when they want it. If men are to achieve full sexual freedom (the freedom to have sex without responsibility) it is essential that abortion be freely available to backup contraception."

3. The first quote says that it can damage the long- term physical and emotional health of women who have an abortion meaning the abortion can hurt the woman.

The second quote says that the women get abortions so that the woman or man in the situation don't have to take responsibility for their actions .
