    "Home" is thought of as a physical being, but in these essays, home is a feeling; a feeling of comfort and love which come in many shapes and sizes. "Home" can be brought on by sights, smells and most important, the memories of those senses. Ford shows that the most important aspects of feeling at "home" is "the important place that holds you, always meant that: affection, love" (110). He says this before he tells us about how he and his wife were broken down in Nebraska in the late 70's and his wife says, "I've just gotten so sleepy now. I've got to go home and sleep." "Home?" Ford says... His wife laughs, "Just back to the motel. Where else?" (110). Home is where this couple is making it. They are broken down in the hottest time of the year away from their house, yet still feel that warm feeling of "home."…

It's where they can drive three hours to see one half of the family, and then fly to the other side of the country to see the other half. It's where they gather with friends on the weekend to share stories over ice cream. For Melanie, home is the feeling when all her family comes together for holidays and reunions.

It is the Routine predictable tasks that develop our sense of belonging. The entire first stanza of the poem is the daily routine; shut the house like a well-oiled lock, this emphasises the routine through the use of simile, a home isn’t temporary it forms our sense of belonging over time, as seen in ‘we lived together for nineteen years’. In the poems finishing lines, ‘naturalised for over a decade, we have become citizens of the soil’, sums up the effects of home, over the years their house has become a home with strong meaning and connections. By accepting their home they are accepting their identity and this is what enables a sense of belonging.…

This is true for most but there are the occasional few who strive to set themselves apart from the rest and follow what they believe in. These individuals are considered to be different and because of it they are often alienated by society. Being different can be considered anything from looking a certain way, speaking a certain way, acting a certain away, and etc. This demonstrates the relationship and clash between the individual and the community.…

    I found that trying to find a book to read about the Vietnam War was rather difficult because there are so many of them out there. I chose Letters from Vietnam edited by Bill Adler because it was a point of view from many soldiers in the war and they were what they were truly feeling at the time. It is not one point of view when you read this many letters and a little background on each of the authors, but there are many points of views, feelings and emotions to help us better understand what they were going through emotionally and physically while overseas.…

Electronics contain hazardous materials that can harm the planet if placed untreated in landfills. Also, many electronic devices contain valuable materials that can be reused, thereby conserving natural resources.…

We feel secure almost as if it’s a fortress, and although it may not be flawless this place holds so much affection to our heart.
