Mother Nature
The beginning of all wilderness started with someone who went by many names. Some called her the Woman of the Wild, some the Creator of Elements, but she was more commonly known as Mother Nature. Mother Nature made not only the sea, the sky, and the earth, but all things that lived on it. She had two daughters. The eldest daughter, Venus, was jealous of her mother’s fame and respect and wanted it for herself. The younger of the two, Ariel, was very timid and not many could say they had ever heard her speak before. It was obvious who was more responsible within the sisters, but it was also obvious which sister people preferred to be in company with. Although they had their differences, Venus and Ariel were close and enjoyed each other’s company, like sisters should. They were also very close to their mother. Mother Nature loved her daughters for who they were, despite the differences between them. She told her daughters stories of the things she created, how rewarding it was and how power should always be used for good. The sisters listened attentively, each with a thought in the backs of their minds. Ariel enjoyed the stories, but hoped for them to remain entertainment to her. She did not want to be held accountable for continuing the creation. Venus on the other hand, wanted to know as much as she could about the power than ran in her family; she wanted to have it now, to start practicing for when she would one day rule. She thought this because it was known that one day Mother Nature would have to pass down all of her knowledge and talents to one of her daughters. It was assumed to be the eldest. In her time of creation she had chosen to keep one of the animals close to her, as another companion. This was her faithful dog that also watched over the sisters and reported back to Mother Nature, as she was often too busy to keep a close eye on…...

Mother

...affected me everyday. My mother, by far, has had the greatest impact on my life. Her heart and determination are something that I can only hope to have myself one day. I have watched her struggle with running a household while trying to balance returning to college full-time and working a part-time job. I did not realize as a young child what courage it took to take on this workload. Now, as I enter the college scene directly from high school, I cannot imagine how hard it must have been to juggle the everyday work of being a full-time mother as well as the workload of college. She never hesitated to drop everything to rush my brother and me to dance, soccer, riding, or karate. I could always look up from the sidelines of a game to see her cheering me on, while she held an armload of books and tried to occupy my brother. My mother has shown me that with determination and perservance one can accomplish anything. As the years passed, she could be found studying for a test while sewing the sequins on my dance recital costume. She finally graduated four years later, summa cum lauda from Keene State. Now she was faced with the task of finding a job, which proved to be even more difficult than receiving her degree. When she finally landed a job about a half hour away, never did she complain about the ride or the terrors she encountered in the classroom. She worked hard every day to provide her classroom of children the best education possible. I have seen my mother give up......

...It took me eighteen years to realize what an extraordinary influence my mother has been on my life. She's the kind of person who has thoughtful discussions about which artist she would most want to have her portrait painted by (Sargent), the kind of mother who always has time for her four children, and the kind of community leader who has a seat on the board of every major project to assist Washington's impoverished citizens. Growing up with such a strong role model, I developed many of her enthusiasms. I not only came to love the excitement of learning simply for the sake of knowing something new, but I also came to understand the idea of giving back to the community in exchange for a new sense of life, love, and spirit. My mother's enthusiasm for learning is most apparent in travel. I was nine years old when my family visited Greece. Every night for three weeks before the trip, my older brother Peter and I sat with my mother on her bed reading Greek myths and taking notes on the Greek Gods. Despite the fact that we were traveling with fourteen-month-old twins, we managed to be at each ruin when the site opened at sunrise. I vividly remember standing in an empty ampitheatre pretending to be an ancient tragedian, picking out my favorite sculpture in the Acropolis museum, and inserting our family into modified tales of the battle at Troy. Eight years and half a dozen passport stamps later I have come to value what I have learned on these journeys about global history,......

...THE IMPORTANCE OF PROTECTING NATURE Nature is God’s greatest boon to mankind.  Nature is the mother of all creations on our earth.  The air that we breath, the water that we drink, the food that we consume, the furniture that we use, etc. are all gifted by Mother Nature.  If not for nature life on earth would have been unimaginable. The bright sunshine, the beautiful mountains, the showers of rain, the tamed and wild animals, the gems and the jewels, the paper on which we write all are the presents of Nature.  We as humans owe our very existence to Mother Nature but seem to disregard this inimitable fact and do not pay any respect to her instead we indulge in polluting and destroying our environment.  Today, people uproot & trees for furniture but forget to plant a new sapling in its place.  The tragedy of modern day existence is people are enjoying luxury items such as cars, air-conditioners refrigerators, etc. failing to realize that they are polluting the ecological balance of our earth.  Today’s generation seems to have no moral responsibility towards nature. The ecologists, scientists and environment activists all over the world have realized the need for protecting nature and its natural resources.  The major problems that our earth is struggling are with pollution, population, depletion of mineral resources, global warming, extinction of various species of animals and cutting down of forests. Our beautiful earth is turning into a defaced, ugly surface......

Most of the people live in below poverty line and incase of high density all kinds of basic need are not able to meet anybody. The following reason is very much important 2.1.1. Poverty and family size In Bangladesh the average family size is six persons. In families where children work, the father often works as either a rickshaw puller or day laborer and the mother as a domestic help.  Poverty leads to quarrels; tension and can ultimately result in cruel treatment of children. The mother, being over burdened with work, can lose interest in her children and neglect them. 56% per cent of people of Bangladesh are landless. They either work on the land of others on a contract basis, or become floating labor moving from place to place. Without a stable income the children become a burden to parents and must find work for their own survival. Table  2. Economically active children by region/ former district -2003. 2.1.2 Victims of migration In general, neglected children migrate to big cities with their families or alone. Often they must beg or drift on the streets in order to earn a living and will consider any work that helps them survive. 2.1.3.......

... Nurture is what we are molded in as growing up but at the same time Nature is our personality, intelligence, aggression and sexual orientation are also encoded in each individual DNA. Nature can be defined in many ways I personally define it as life in general things that are natural in life plants, animals, and weather even from a baby coming into this world that is nature. Genetics vs. Environment you might hear someone say to you ‘‘you and your mother act so much alike” or “your following in your fathers foot steps”, however parents and guardians do play the key role in shaping a child personality. But, nature does most of the real work. The environment does influence most personality traits while the rest are genetics. Often times I role out of the bed and the weather is dreadful and I crawl right back in cancelling all my daily routines. What will you define that as? I will classify that as nature for the reason that if the weather was beautiful I would have been in a better mood and start my day; because the sun is shinning and at that moment you’re in a much pleasant mood. Page 72 & 73 in the Society textbook by John J. Macionis looks upon the Role of Nature as determining a person is innately gay, or holds any characteristics of that of a criminal.

...ongoing debate whether human development is impacted by nature or nurture. If the growth of the individual were to be guided by nature, the individual would take the position that all or most of its behaviors and characteristics are the result of genetics inherited from their parents (Colella, 2013). Meaning that they were fully equipped with all the skills they need in their lives when they are born. On the other hand, if an individual’s growth were guided by nurture only, the individual would think and behave in a certain manner because that is how the individual was taught to do so or from experience (Colella, 2013). In this case the individual is also impacted by the environment surrounding them. Although nature has some impact on human development on an individual, nurture has a greater impact on an individual’s development. It has a bigger affect on human development due to early childhood experiences, acquired intelligences and socialization throughout their life. Early childhood is the most and rapid period of development in a human life. The experiences gained from birth to the four years of age are critical to the complete and healthy cognitive, emotional and physical growth of children (Collins, 2012). The conditions in the house greatly impact how a child develops. Having violence in the house affects the child. Regardless of whether or not our children have been physically abused, or watching their mother being beaten is a frightening experience. They......

Mother

...One of the most important people in everyone’s life is our mother. Before birth, their body was in pain to carry us in their wombs for about nine months. They vomited their food, they suffered from headaches, and felt the weakness of their body every morning. But because they are mothers, they never complain. They make all these sacrifices wholeheartedly without anything in return. Being a mom is not a job. For me, it is the most wonderful part of being a woman. It is something you learn as you go and constantly striving to be a better person for your child. Our children are our future so we have to do our best at raising them to be the best people they can be. It has the challenges especially in these difficult economic times. It’s hard to maintain the happy and secure home their children are used too. It’s hard to keep them out of all the stress of difficult financial situation without making them insecure or worried. Our mother is the one who changed our diapers, stayed up late for us and sacrificed everything she had just for us. She often takes the fallout for the toddler tantrums and the teenage angst. Despite that, she generally loves her children no matter what they do. We sometimes extol our mother’s sacrifices from when we were infants, yet, we cannot describe her “real” sacrifices and hardships unless we experience them. They care for us as if we are golden treasures that they are eager to protect us from harmful humans and incidents. In the middle......

...Families are thus the building blocks upon which rests the fate of society. For the development of good families, a mother plays a vital role. Mothers have a lot of responsibilities, from the beginning of making a family until the time when her children are old enough to be independent and make their own families. However, life is not easy nowadays. Earning money is difficult that is why a lot of mothers chose to work. Unlike before where only men or fathers earn in a family, on this generation it is very common that mothers are also working in order for their own families to have a better future. In line with this, education can be of great help for mothers to get a better job. Because better job means bigger salary especially when the degree they got is very in demand nowadays or in different countries where the offer is nicer. Education also helps mothers to get a better position in the company which may give them benefits of earning enough money for the budget of the family. These women are strongly motivated by the desire not only for personal achievement but also to create an opportunity for a better future for their children. For them, with a valuable certificate or degree in hand, they will be highly equipped and have the credentials to earn a family-supporting wage and opens a lot of doors for many other career opportunities and advancements. Working mothers nowadays are now taking the “multi-tasking” to another level. They juggle work, education, childcare and......

...Mother Teresa How effectively has Mother Teresa demonstrated the possibilities of living the kingdom values of love, compassion and faith in the parable of the Good Samaritan? Quote By Mother Teresa: “There is always the danger that we may just do the work for the sake of the work. This is where the respect and the love and the devotion come in - that we do it to God, to Christ, and that's why we try to do it as beautifully as possible.” – Mother Teresa Biography: Agnes Gonxha Bojaxhiu, also known as Mother Teresa, was the third and final child born to her Albanian Catholic parents, Nikola and Dranafile Bojaxhiu, in the city of Skopje on August 26th 1910. When Mother Teresa was eight years old her father died suddenly and it left the family devastated. After her father died, Teresa’s family held their religious beliefs tightly and strongly. When mother Teresa was 12 years old she heard call from God to serve God as a nun this meant that giving up all her worldly possessions and her family possibly forever. She thought about if she should be a nun to serve God for five years, during this time she did many religious activities such as singing in the church choir, helped her mother organise church events, and went on walks with her mother to hand out food and supplies to the poor. Finally after 5 long years she accepted to serve God as nun when she was 17 years old. At this time she as read many articles about the work of catholic missionaries in India......

...play a large role in who we are today, and who we will be in the future. The biggest influence may come from our family; my mother is mine. She taught me everything from how to eat healthy and dress myself, to how to react to any situation. She taught me little things like how to tie my shoes and to be polite and respectful to adults. I would be lost without my mother, I can trust her, and she’s really important to me. Here’s why: She Listens to Me My mother is my security blanket. No matter how bad of a day she had, she will always be there to listen to me. I talk to her about everything — even things that aren’t always easy to talk about, like my period. Even if she's been screamed at by my siblings all day, she will still be eager to hear me squeal over my drama-filled teenage gossip or vent about how overwhelming life can be. She puts up with my mood swings, my constant chatter and my continuous requests — and still manages to keep our home, and everyone in it, in order. She Calms Me Down Whenever something becomes too much for me, she is there calming me down — giving me a hug and telling me it’s going to be OK. She can even prevent me from hyperventilating by finding my “lost” textbook (it was, of course, in the open, in the first place I checked). No matter what the scenario is, my mother always makes me feel better. And she does this all with a smile — even when I forget to say thank you....

Mother

...Mother The poem “Mother” is a song written by the British band Pink Floyd, and it appears for the first time on their album “The Wall” from 1979. The poem is about a guy who’s got a very overprotecting mother. His mother wants to interfere in everything in her son’s life, and therefore he doesn’t get to do anything by himself. He doesn’t get to develop. The themes in the poem “Mother” is development, adolescence & the “mother to son”-relationship. The poem isn’t shaped like a normal song. It contains four verses, where the first and the third verse, plus the last sentence are the son talking to his mother, and where the second and the fourth verse is the mother talking to her son. In the first verse, the son asks his mother seven questions about the outside world. The mother replies to him in the second verse, where she is telling him that she is going to take care of him (“Momma's will keep Baby cozy and warm.”) They keep on communicating with each other all the way through the poem. It also says in the second verse, that “Momma's gonna make all of your nightmares come true. Momma's gonna put all of her fears into you” I interpret that as a very overprotecting mother, who always keeps everything that she think is dangerous away from her child. In that way, the child won’t get the experience that he needs to be an independent person, so he’ll take over his mothers fears, when he grow older. In the third verse, the boy is telling his mother about a girl. He is worried that......

Evil in Human and Mother Nature

...The Evil of Human Nature and Mother Nature When someone has what they call a great day, there is always an aspect of it that they would say was not too great. If a person were to think back to the best day of their lives, they would also be able to remember something that troubled them that same day. The size of the ‘troubling’ or ‘bad’ aspect doesn’t dismiss the fact that there was indeed a point of evil in their day. If a man was planning to propose to his girlfriend that night after dinner, and he had a whole plan and was ready to pop the question, and she doesn’t quite go with his plan like he thought she would, forcing him to improvise. We all know that improvising for something as big as a proposal is a very hard and stressful thing; all you want is for it to be perfect. In the end, he still proposes to her as best he could think and she happily says yes. This is a great day for the both of them; they are now a happily engaged couple. As much as he may think of how happy that night was, he will always remember the struggle he went through to make it as special as he could. Unintentional, yes, but it doesn’t change the fact that he was troubled, and had to go an extra mile for a bad reaction to his plan from his girlfriend, now fiancée. His day was still great and he is still very happy with his outcome, although it may not have been all perfect. However good your day may be, there is always going to be some aspect of evil. A very common way that ‘evil’ is brought......

Mother

...As a reader, I looked at this text as a revelation. This text gave me a sudden realization that I too share the same background as Tan and that I too have a mother tongue of my own. The text was very relatable in my perspective. Growing up, I've experienced events similar to the ones Tan spoke of. I remember my father being scolded by the owner of a deli across the street that he was stupid, cheap, and that he should go back to China based on his irregular English. I also remember my mother being turned away during parent teacher conference because the teacher simply did not want to bother with my mother's English. My mother and father was not taken seriously just like how Tan's mother was not either. Although I can relate to the author very much so and agree that language should not serve as a barrier to the way we try to understand or be understood by each other, many other people may disagree. Many people do not have thick and choppy accents like Chinese Americans. Not many have the ability to see the image that Tan is trying to convey: the idea of a language that speaks to all also known as her Mother Tongue. Tan also does not consider the fact that many people may not have their own Mother Tongue or that English may have been their first language. Therefore, they may not be able to understand that Mother Tongue is not simply, just another language. It is another language with structure and vocabulary, just like any other language. It seems that Tan......

...extremely cold evening winter in the severe highland. The wind blew fast made the dark sky become more dangerous and violent, but my mother was ready to set out again. Hardly did anyone know that where a female was going in such that weather. She was going to remote areas of the province to do her business, retailing commodities. At the age of 40s, my mother still had to work hard to earn her living and support our family. By her old bike with a lot of goods that maybe was out of her ultimate limit, my mother faced her new challenge alone but vigorously. There was no light outside, no stars, and no one, there was only winds still blew faster and faster towards my mother's sunburnt face. This moment of my mother' life that has been instilled in my mind has tremendously helped me in my spiritual, mental, and developmental upbringing. My mother actually is an ordinary woman but in her tiny appearance lies an extraordinary fortitude, perseverance, a altruistic soul and a very kindly heart. The kind of mother who brought me up with her whole kindly heart, the kind of persistent woman with strong willpower who had to face the toughest challenges in life, and the kind of person who always demonstrated great zeal for every unlucky lives without requiring anything in return and great willingness to help everyone's misery though she did not have much, my mother taught me more than any one else, not only inspired me the strength to overcome hardships in my life, but also left me......
