Teens and Breast Cancer

With in the past year there has been a growing rate in breast cancer within teens.  A 13-year-old girl was diagnosed with breast cancer.  Her name is Taylor Thompson.  Breast cancer is found in women of ages 15-54.  It was a 19-year-old girl who had to have both breast removed 2 weeks after her doctor found a lump.  Younger women have to have more aggressive treatment than older women.  So how does this make you feel?  Have you ever imagined being treated for breast cancer at such a young age?

what is thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is the time to give thanks.  Give thanks to your parents, your friends, and your God.  It is the time to be thankful for your life.  It is also the day t0 enjoy life and the ones in it.  Thanksgiving is not about the food, it is about being surrounded by the ones you love and who love you.  So who did I spend my thanksgiving with?  I spent it with my mother, aunts and uncles, grandmother, cousins, and my boyfriend.  It feels good when its so much love in the air.

I am completely anti-death penalty.  I knew this before being involved in a classroom debate.  My side believed it is unconstitutional and unethical for someone to be killed under the death penalty.  Even though they took someone’s life what makes the government right for killing them?  Also couldn’t the death penalty be the easy way out?  Many murderers have no care about whether they live or die.  However, if they are forced to live the rest of their lives in jail they will also be forced to live with what they did for the rest of their lives.  And whose to say that they wont change?  If they are killed their souls are free to move on. 

Some would say that the death penalty is the ultimate punishment, but what’s worse than living in a prison where no one really gives a care about you and where your freedom is basically nonexistent?  Jail gives the convicted time to reflect on what they did and how their lives would be if they didn’t commit the crime.  Jail would give them time to change their lives even if they will never see the outside of a prison.  Just think about it, is it really ok to kill someone over allowing them to become better people and feel remorse for what they have done?

This is to John Allen Muhammad…  Today around 9 your life will be taken from you, so be lucky that you are taking the easy way out, and will never receive the complete punishment that you deserve.

Fort Hood Shooting

Nidal Hasan, an army psychiatrist shot over 40 people and killed 12.  He was to be deported to Iraq.  His motive at this point is unknown.  The shooting occurred around 1:30pm.  Many believe the main cause of this rampage was the Army refusing to allow Hasan to stay instead of going to Iraq.  Hasan also volunteered to give up his medical degree, but the army refused.  The rampage ended with Hasan being shot three times by police officer, Kimberly Munley.  Munly was shot in the exchange of fire.  Hasan was seriously wounded. but remained in stable conditions.   It is being said that he did what he did because he didn’t want to go to Iraq.  And no one truly know but him. 

I believe this is crazy.  Of all place an Army base.  Shouldn’t there have been lots and lots of security there?  How could they allow him to shoot so many people?  If anything he should have wounded himself so he would not have to go to war.  Now he will be going to jail for a very long time.  You wouldn’t think a psychiatrist would or could do such a thing.  I understand that he couldn’t kill in war but he killed innocent people who weren’t the enemy.

16 year old girl shot dead

Melody Ross was shot dead in  a random shooting that  “>occured after a football game.  The shooting happened right outside Woodrow Wilson highschool.  The girl was killed and two men were wounded.  The motive of the shooting remains unclear.  Ross was an Honor Roll student.  The football coach said that he heard between five and seven shots.  The football had lost the game and also lost a school mate.  This is the second time that a high school student was harmed outside an organized school event in California.  This is terrible  thing.  What is really going on in California.  Was this an organized crime or was it just a random inevitable shooting.  I’m pretty sure it is making schools think twice about hosting school events at night.  But who should be punished?  Should they stop after school events?  I don’t know.  This just proves that no matter where you are, you are never 100% safe so watch your back.
