AIRPORT

Topics: Terrorism
After the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks on New York’s World Trade Towers and the Pentagon, the debate surrounding racial profiling in airports intensified. Many people believed that profiling was the best way to identify possible terrorists, but many others worried about violations of civil liberties. While some airports began to target passengers based solely on their Middle Eastern origins, others instituted random searches instead. Neither of these techniques seems likely to eliminate terrorism. Now, many experts in government and in airport security are recommending the use of a national ID card or a Safe Traveler Card. If every U.S. citizen had such a card, airlines could screen for terrorists more effectively than they do now and avoid procedures that single out individuals solely on the basis of race. For these reasons, the government should pass a law making national ID cards mandatory. The most vivid memory I have of writing is back in the tenth grade. I had the best teacher ever in regards to writing. I used to view writing as a senseless waste of time. Writing, in my opinion, at the time was always noted to be formal and boring; however, my tenth grade English teacher, Mrs. Perez, changed my whole perception of writing and how it affects humanity. One day after class she pulled me aside and recommended a book known as, “His Dark Materials,” which is about a young girl who, with her allies, fought for the discovery of a dark substance called the “Dust.” The book single handedly altered my mental picture of writing and creativity. Writing can be about anything in the universe, and the possibilities are endless. The main point, however, which ties everything together, is imagination. One’s imagination can truly be defined as infinite to the power of infinite, because it contains numerous amounts of details and features on life and the world itself. How does this tie to writing one may ask. Well an elaborate imagination helps to create an elaborate

    O. Henry Unpredictability is a coveted aspect in any author’s work. No matter how action-packed or descriptive a writer is, without a touch of surprise, his work is useless. This was no problem for O. Henry. The famous short story author’s intimate relationship with erratic plot twists came from the roller coaster of a life he led. His twist endings combined in his stories with clever, lighthearted irony that brought humor to otherwise not as humorous topics. This sense of humor was ever constant…
