One is the loneliest number For a long time growing up, family was (to me) only those related by blood or marriage; believing family would help one another and always be open, honest, and nurturing. Although I still believe in my ideas of family, my family is no longer limited by a signed piece of paper or a DNA test. Before I tell you the people I still consider my family you must know that blood related I have: my mother, father, three siblings, and an extended family counting upwards of 200 people. At this moment in time, I only consider one person in this world to be family. In another person’s world and a different frame of mind, I would be looked at and have been told I am weird for considering that my girlfriend, Melanie, is the only family I have. This drastic change in mindset has taken place for about 5 years, having no family and including my girlfriend for the last year. When I went away to school, the only time I would talk to anyone from home was a minute long (if I was lucky) call from my dad about how school was going, just finding out I have a learning disability, and asking how I was on money. I thought at the time, that it wasn’t unusual and was just part of the whole independence thing that comes with going away to school, but boy was I wrong. When I left school no longer wishing to be where I was, nothing much had changed. I lived back with my parents and brother and was still treated as a leper and not talked to. The only communication I had with any of them was arguments in how I lived my life, asleep all day and out and about all night. It took me several months, but I lucked into my first job ever and that is when everything went to hell and back. As I said before, to me, family helps one another out and is open, honest, and nurturing and my “family” was none of the sort. Once I started my job my family started talking to me again: my mother yelling and screaming about what I was doing with my life imposing rule upon rule against me,

I like this story by Jill Nelson. Jill Nelson and her family were living well for a black family back in the 1960s. Jill's father would have the family sit at the table for Sunday breakfast and preach his own version of the sermon. Jill's favorite Sunday breakfast sermon was the "Rockefeller wouldn't let his dog shit in our dining room" sermon. Her father was smart because he made Jill try to be number one all the time. For 15 years straight Jill's dad….
Is America Number One?
I always thought that America was one of the best countries in the world, because
everyone knows that we are known for all the freedoms and equalities that we are granted
by just being born here. I also always thought America was one of the best, because I
always heard on the news about the problems that other countries were having with
diseases, economic problems, as well as problems within their government. But, now after
researching all these things….
Is America Number One?
The two concepts I learned from this video were the standard of living is different in different countries of the world and freedom. For example, in the video it mentioned the United States, Hong Kong, and India. All of which that have different standards of living. In India there are a lot of poor people and the living conditions are far worse than Hong Kong and the United States. That is mostly due to the overpopulation in India and they cannot simply meet the demands of….

The video that we were charged with watching relates to the tragic romance Othello because there is some obvious racism involved in both the clip and the script. The video features a man who describes the players of a football team and each description follows a type of pattern.
