    A Road of Decision I feel that the meaning of "Muddy Road" could be interpreted in different ways.

This is where it is your choice to do what you are feeling needs to be done. In reading "Muddy Road" the two monks, Tanzan and Ekido, were traveling on a road that likely resembles life. Being monks they were not...

    Electoral College The Electoral College is not important in choosing the president of the United States. I agree with this because it should matter what the voters say, this is a democracy and it should be the people's final choice, and if the Electoral College changes the voters' choice then they will be the ones to blame if our country goes haywire. The Electoral College has a final say in which president will be chosen. It's not right because if the majority of the voters choose one president...

  • Abort Raising A Baby

    In this paper I plan on showing you my point of view as well as the opposite point of view using a point by point basis.
