There were resources just waiting to be taken hold of in order to attain great riches and with this came...

    1,115 words

In society today every person has superficial expect...

    There are many mornings when I wake up early and watch some TV, in fact I watch TV a lot. What I can not stand are those hideous commercials that devalue the elderly, and make them look slow and weak. These commercials make me, as the person watching, feel sorry for them. It makes me dread becoming old, because I do not want to be as helpless and devalued as they appear on the TV. My body shakes as I watch that elderly woman fall down in her living room. She reaches her head up and screams those...

    Have you ever noticed that few people know how to be old? Some that I have come across in the differences in trying to understand is why this is? Some don't know how to act, dress or what attitude they have when getting old. First, the way in which older people act. You will find some older people in nightclubs acting as if they were under 21 years old. They are dancing like the younger people and trying to keep up with younger generation.

    Distinguished Members of the School Board: I am not in favor of the proposed requirement that eighth-graders spend fifteen hours during the school year volunteering to help the elderly.
