In the section titled “Saturday,” Ehsan suggests asking for forgiveness through the power of food. The shoreik or fetir el-rahmah is a pastry consisting of pretzel shaped sweet bread coated with egg wash and brown sugar.

and will continue to be so. Providing adequate punishment to those that take a human life must be approached very carefully. David Bruck wrote a response to Mayor Edward Koch's essay entitled, "Death and Justice: How Capital Punishment Affirms Life," in which he goes on to explain through examples why the death penalty should be forgotten.

Response 8: Martin Luther’s 95 Theses
Question: What do you see as the two or three main issues Luther has with the Catholic Church?
Martin Luther’s 95 Theses wasn’t an attack on the Church, Catholics, or even the pope. The 95 Theses were more of an observation Martin Luther did of actions the church was taking, and they were more of critiques to fix what he saw were incorrect actions by the church and pope. One of these issues was the pope….

Schooling, Sexual Orientation, Law, and Policy: Making Schools Safe for All Students
By: Charlotte J. Patterson
This article was full of information about sexual minorities and the hardships they face. However, it was very redundant and I felt I was reading the same facts and statistics that were previously said in the paragraph before. Also, the facts that were being used are common knowledge to many people in my generation’s age bracket. Perhaps the author thought she had….
