What I have learned about the book of Genesis involving the creation, fall, redemption of
man, and “Where do I come from?” We came from God. Genesis comes from the Greek word
meaning “ The origin, beginning, creation, or coming into being something.” In Genesis, man is
presented in all his dignity and in all his sinfulness. More importantly, it is an appeal to all of us,
descendants of Adam and Eve, to live up to our vocation of being created in God’s image and likeness. In
Genesis it ...
- American history
The writings and narratives of the late 1600’s served to define an important place in the history of early American literature. Literature of this time is the consciousness of what life was like for settlers in colonial times and of the issues pertaining to this crucial point in American history. Some of the main purposes were to give an accounting of the writing styles of this time and to give historical significance to the violence that was so much a part of early America. The focus of th...

Similarities in Fireside Poetry
“Thanatopsis”, written by William Cullen Bryant, and “The Tide Rises, The Tide Falls”, written by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow are both uplifting poems about nature and life repeating and creating a cycle. Although they are two poems of their own, they both give a reassuring feeling of happiness for repetition. In both “Thanatopsis” and “The Tide Rises,” the subject, the structure and the use of imagery are v...

Separation of Church and State
There is supposed to be a separation between church and state. If you look at the government and the politicians that run our government everything is revolved around religion. Religion plays apart in what we vote for, and who we vote for. It always has. Religion is the main focus in our government, even if it’s not supposed to be.
Though religion is not supposed to be connected to the government, religiousness coincides with what the public want. If it’s what...

AND YOU THOUGHT YOU WERE STRANGE
Here is an outrageous thought: All the matter around you is made of atoms, and all atoms are made of only three types of subatomic particle, protons, electrons, and neutrons. Furthermore, all protons are exactly the same, all neutrons are exactly the same, and all electrons are exactly the same. Protons and neutrons have almost exactly the same mass. Electrons have a mass that is about 1/1835 the mass of a proton. Electrons have a unit negative charge. Protons e...

These are few ...
- Blackberry Picking
Seamus Heaney’s poem “Blackberry-Picking” describes the progression of the life of blackberries, from when they first ripen to when they rot, and children’s responses to each part of the transformation. Heaney uses a dominant metaphor, verse form, slant rhyme and intense clear diction to convey the deeper understanding of the poem that passion is worth experiencing despite the letdown. Through the use of a dramatic tone, Heaney is able to communicate the dominant metaphor tha...
- Narrative Essay
It was really happening; we were moving. I had lived in Salt Lake City, Utah ever since I was five years old, and now I was leaving it. We were moving to Cairo, Egypt. My parents had talked about it for the past few years. Every year they said, “We’re moving this time;” it never happened. But now it was settled, we were leaving in the beginning of May. When I thought of Egypt, I thought of pyramids, pharaohs, camels, and tents. It wasn’t somewhere I would ever think to live in; maybe I...

- My Paradise
Visiting my backyard, especially on a sultry day, can be my favorite way to spend the day. Behind my house, barely noticeable, is a small pathway through the trees to a pond with a waterfall. Everyday I walk down the three concrete steps to the path below. The path is narrow but well worn. Any shrubbery that would have grown has been trampled down and all that remains is a very narrow path, overhung with branches from trees that are by its side. There is no wind on the path just the...
