Grocery Shopping

...For many people, Grocery shopping is thought of as a routine task in our everyday lives necessary to put food on the table; I consider grocery store shopping to be a maddening experience. For example, grocery store parking lots where most of the vacant parking spaces are occupied by abandoned shopping carts because some insensitive shopper couldn’t spare an extra ten seconds of their day to return something back where they found it, the audacity of people, it’s enough to make my blood pressure sky rocket. To illustrate further, several days ago while patiently waiting for a parking space, I observed a scruffy middle-aged man sporting brown, wavy hair sort of a stocky fellow, over-dressed in an expensive trench coat, unpacking his shopping cart. Slyly eyeing his surrounding’s to see if anybody is eyeballing his every move, like a fox seeking its prey, he quickly slithers into his car and ditches the cart right in the middle of the vacant spot I wanted to occupy, causing me to stop, get out of my car, and remove something that some inconsiderate numbskull could not be bothered to do. Additionally, parents that allow their children free will to run wild through the store, with no boundaries, screaming an ear deafening pitch, and leaping out in front of a swiftly moving shopping cart destroying products on the shelf creating a colossal mess, causing me to feel like the hair on my skin is standing straight up. I could practically feel steam coming out of my ears and my......

Why Art Has Been Feared by Society

...is typical or expected of a group) . Norms which are supposed to be followed by every member of the society. Anyone who decides to do something 'different' is considered an outcast and is shunned by the other members of the society. And what exactly is art ? Art is an innovation of new ideas , imagination and an escape from the realities of the world. It initiates creativity , forcing people to think ' outside the box.' Art does not require people to follow a fixed set of guidelines and stay restricted to the norms of the society . Infact it allows people to cross boundries and enter a world which has no norms , no rules. Everything is acceptable in the world of art . This is what the society fears. Change. Breaking of social norms. The audacity of some people to create something different frightens society. They fear that the norms which were formed and established over the years may no longer be considered important. People will live according to what they desire rather than what the society desires. If we take a look at the modern world today and compare it which the previous eras , we will see quite drastic changes. Changes in not only the architecture of the world, but also changes in people's perceptions and thinking. And what thing is responsible for all these changes ? Well, in my opinion it is art which has led to all these changes in the society. It encouraged people to broaden their horizon of imagination and not fear expressing in what they believe in .

Yes Mam

...as a demigod, which fulfills the definitions of what is considered good and noble in the originating culture. Later, the word hero was used for someone who exceeds their peers and achieves things beyond their seeming abilities with no personal gain. When I think of a hero, I think of a soldier or members of the military because they make so many sacrifices for our country. Their selfless acts for our nation helped sculpt us into what we are today. Firefighters and policemen also take part in these heroic acts by fearlessly showing society what it takes to be a man or women of bravery. Overall, heroes change lives. They are mistaken for many things but a true hero shows qualities that not many others can imitate. If someone has the audacity to put their own life in jeopardy in order to save someone else’s, then they should be recognized a genuine hero....

The second strength that I maintain is approachability, and being interested in others opinions, or thoughts. The third strength is awareness and being able to notice things. My creative talent is being able to look outside the box, to be approachable and listen to others opinions, and the awareness of things around me. These help me in finding answers to situations that I may encounter because I’m willing to listen, learn, and observe. There is a few abilities that I would like to see vast improvements on they our listed by one being the highest priority, and so on. Number one is having the audacity the assurance the skill that I would find most valuable in accomplishing a better and stronger self-confidence is learning to know and understand yourself. Number two would be having the mindset of someone who is willing to take chances for success. The answer to improving these skills is going to fall back on having the self-confidence and courage, being knowledgeable of changes in the area you’re looking at, and understanding yourself. Number three is preventing the same things from happening time after time. The skills that would help in improving this would be looking outside the box, openness, and having the mindset of a risk taker and not being fearful of success, or failure....

Fredrick Douglas

...Ham argument early in the book when he pens “If the lineal descendants of Ham are alone to be scripturally enslaved, it is certain that slavery at the south must soon become unscriptural; for thousands are ushered into the world, annually, who, like myself, owe their existence to white fathers, and those fathers most frequently their own masters.” In essence, Some of the same men that fathered a slave, beat that slave of his own blood, and then had the audacity to pray with that slave as if it were all love. Fredrick gives further clarity to the Christian hypocrisy he witnessed when describing an experience that occurred while he was living with Master Auld after leaving Baltimore. Fredrick and three other slaves, his sister Eliza, his aunt Priscilla and Henny were barely given enough food to survive. They were aware that they met those extremes by design, for there was food present just not available to them. While Douglass and the others were forced to beg and steal, his master and his master’s mistress had the audacity to pray daily for God to bless them with more. Among the many admirable traits Fredrick Douglass owned, it is his aptitude for deductive simplicity that rang loudest to me; none more visible than his summation of the differences in Christianity in the Appendix where he wrote after a lifelong hypocritical experience of the religion: I love the pure, peaceable, and impartial Christianity of Christ: I therefore hate the corrupt, slaveholding,......

In this sense, I will inevitable get to disappoint some if not everybody” That wrote Barack Obama in his book the audacity of hope from 2006. Back then, he was in the middle of his second year as senator for the state Illinois. After almost two years of election campaign, that ended with victory in the race for the presidency yesterday are the words still relevant. Obama is more than something other than a screen is, as the U.S reflects its own best sides in. During the past two years, he has becoming the USA´s dream about itself. Barack Obama has been for the Democrats what Ronald Reagan was for the Republicans in 1980´s: a promise of a new era beginning. A dewy morning in America. Barack Obama is a living proof of the assertion consider that any individual with the right abilities and ambitions can become president of the United States.

A Soul Inspired by Him

...A SOUL INSPIRED BY HIM We are born to be an instrument of change or an instrument of destruction. Many are born with inherent audacity and many are born with a lack of it. Many possess certain characteristics that are distinct while others don’t have; but I believe that every individual has hidden uniqueness that lies within them. They only need a rope to show in order to outstand. Life was never been a smooth sail and the road is not flat but rough and it is the way of life. Many of us surrendered, but many surpassed due to resiliency. I was once a slave of my past, a void soul. Prisoned by memory which inflicts agony to my entire being. Shattered, and doesn’t know how to pick up the broken pieces of my life. One significant event in a gloomy day, that a bewildered soul is a total mystery. A voice and an obscure image appear with strong conviction, leaving words that were almost a melody to be heard help me change my life and my perspective, an apparition of Him that inspired a void soul, with so much love and compassion. A life is worth living, not a life to sulk over the memories of past. The world is indeed cruel but I learned to see the optimistic side of it. I learned to see the world behind the prison cell I created. I have faith that one day, every rough place will be made plain, and crooked place will be made straight. If we listen and restore faith in Him, no soul is in agony, if we believe in His existence and......
