Each of these messages were copied to tapes, each side of the tape was directed towards one specific person in which caused one of the reasons. The tapes went in order, from the beginning of Hannah's problems, to the end. Hannah mailed the tapes to the first person the day she ended her life.

    I think that there are a lot of things that my parents did for me because who I am. My parents got me involved in church, playing baseball, and cub scouts, they took us on camping trips, and also on trips to see things like museums,interesting things in nature and also historical places. We got to do a lot of fun things too, like going to play arcade games Kiddie Mia’s, going to parades Crew of highland Mardi Gra parade, we also did a lot of things that helped us to be together as a family, like doing stuff as a family. My parents also tried to get me to get good grades at school, and another big thing that I think really helped me out as a person was that they showed me a good work ethic and got me ready for life. My parents always worked really hard to give me a good life and they also worked really hard to show me right from wrong. There were a lot of things that my parents did for me that contributed to my environmental experiences. The one thing that my parents gave me that contributed the most in my life was all of the love that they gave throughout the years and they still give me till this day.…

    And since my parents never showed even the slightest signs of weakness, fatigue, or dejection, I grew up under the warmth of their radiant, loving smiles. However, looking back, I took a lot for granted, mistakenly believing that everything they did for me was merely expected. Similarly, I regret all those stubborn and meaningless arguments I’d have with them over the minute details. At these moments, I did not recognize how grateful and fortunate I actually was to have such devoted, loving parents.…

    I, personally, only have firsthand knowledge of familial and friendly love. From these experiences, I have learnt that love is when my mom hugs me after a bad day, love is when my best friend and I spend seven hours talking on the phone, love is when my brother and I burst out laughing in the middle of a fight. Meanwhile, although, I have no idea what it feels like to be ‘in love’ with someone, I know it’s love when my dad cooks my mom’s favorite meal when she’s sick or when my grandpa paints my grandma’s toenails because she can no longer bend over due to her arthritis. In more general terms, I feel…

    40 years have passed since I moved away from the dreadful place I used to call home, where I was treated like dirt and was constantly fighting with my mother. Most of the family used to ask me the same old question, “Which parent do you love more?”. Back then, I would have replied, “I love them both the same.” But now, after the last argument with my mother, the one that led to me moving towns just to get away from her, I will always answer in a stern voice,”I love my father more.”…

    During the 2000 Presidential Election, certain groups of Americans were stripped of their right to vote, or their vote was discounted. This led to many Americans feeling disenfranchised. This feeling was most evident in the state of Florida. In the film Recount, it showed that voters were turned away from voting polls, they were taken off registration rolls, that names were wrongly placed on lists of criminals; which would not allow them to vote, and lastly many counties in Florida were not able to have their votes recounted.…

    I was raised by both of my parents in America after we legally travelled from Malaysia. While my father worked a full time job, my mother stayed home and looked after me. At a young age, I had a large portion of the day with just my mother. I was never a neglected child. She taught me to always carry a smile and to look at the positives in life instead of fretting about the negatives. When I was bored, she would stop her daily chores and watch television with me. If I complained of starvation, she would immediately cook or take me out for food. When I was sick, she took care of me and stayed up all night in case of any bad changes. If I wanted a new toy, she would nag about how hard it is to earn money but she will always end up buying it for me. I didn’t realize at the time, but in my heart, she was already an irreplaceable mother.…
