All It Takes Is Some Faith
Being gifted with athleticism is truly a blessing. I have played many sports throughout my years, and I don’t mean to brag, but I am pretty good! I am a fast learner and I pick up on things so quickly. When I am committed to something, I do not give up. I never give up. If I start something, I make sure I finish it. It’s a pet peeve that I have. For example, if I borrow a few dollars from someone, I always make sure I pay that person back, like I said I would. If I don’t, I feel like I haven’t completed something.
It was the beginning of my freshmen year when I realized that running was my true passion. I had never been so good at something in my life. My first track meet ever was when I realized my love for the sport, this reason being because I enjoyed being surrounded by people who had the same passion for the sport I did. Everyone had a set goal during the season and was determined to be the best they could be.
Over the years, I became friends with some amazing people who doubted as my teammates. I also became very close with my coaches. I learned so many things from them, whether it was with my form or just feedback in general. I was thankful to have some guidance

` and people who were pushing me to become a better runner. At times when I was putting myself down, my coaches were always there to pick me back up and encourage me to do better, and let me know the things I had done correctly. If I had done something wrong, they would always point out what it was that I needed to fix so I could learn from it. Not only were my coaches there for me, but my teammates as well, were so uplifting.
I trained for four years. Each year, my times were faster, my body became stronger, and I was physically and mentally devoted to the sport. As my senior year came around, I knew was when everything was important, and everything I did was going to matter. It had always been my dream to run in college. It was all I ever wanted to do.

    today most states have adopted the “winner takes all” system. The winner takes all system is a policy implemented that causes politicians to compete to win states, which would give them electoral votes. The winner of the election is the candidate with the most electoral votes. In some cases the candidate with the highest popular vote isn’t the winner of the actual election. This can cause the system to be controversial. I believe that the winner takes all system is the best way to have our elections…

    I think a recurring theme in “All Summer in a Day” by Ray Bradbury is faith. The story revolves around faith or lack thereof. The children act out and shun Margot because they’re afraid to have faith. On the contrary, Faith is all Margot has. The entire storyline happens the way it does is because of their struggles with faith. I think one of the concepts Bradbury is trying to get at is that the fear of faith, and what we do without faith is destructive. The children are afraid. They don’t want…

    Faith is the complete trust or confidence in someone or something. It is based on spiritual apprehension rather than proof. Scientifically, faith is irrational. There is no proof of a higher being, no scientific reason for one to trust in their beliefs, yet so many do. I understand that in this sense faith is irrational, yet I also think its necessary and makes complete rational sense. In order to be at peace in life I think it is important to have your faith to trust in. God cannot be proven by…

    Faith What is Faith? When I think of Faith the first thing that comes to mind is people always say if you have the faith of a mustard seed, you can move a mountain. That story confused me for a long time because when you read it Jesus chastises the disciples for having little faith and then turns around and tells them that if you have the faith of a mustard seed you could move a mountain. But then I had a revelation that I want to share with you today to help you on this journey we call life.…
