Mother Teresa
Mother Teresa was a powerful woman with her missions and countless acts of mercy. Powerful
leaders in our world today should learn from Mother Teresa and her countless acts of
mercy, which she performed. Often men and women in powerful positions misuse their
strengths simply for their own personal benefit. Mother Teresa is a perfect example of a
modern day saint. Through her love and guidance of Jesus Christ, Mother Teresa proves to
be savior. Now if you compare Mother Teresa to some of today's wealthy politics and the
way they conduct themselves, you will see a great contrast between to two. Mother Teresa
does not work out of the intent to profit but instead out of her love to help others, like
no other women our society has seen.

Mother Teresa used her power of love from God to help those in desperate need. Mother
Teresa didn't get paid for anything she did nor would she except money from organizations
or donations. It was not like Mother Teresa had an overwhelming amount of money but she
was simply a person who devoted her entire life to serving others and helping those in
need. Many people may not have noticed it, but all Mother Teresa had to do was touch a
person and that was almost enough. She helped thousands of people in poor countries with

  • A cultural revolution
    A cultural revolution Joe Foster Dr. Anderson 3/06/00 History104 11:00-12:15 The Jungle:by Upton Sinclair- “A cultural revolution ignited” In the late nineteenth-century and early twentieth-century the country was experiencing a boom time in the economy, but it came at the expense of the average poor immigrant. As long as business men were making a buck they didn’t care or who what they exploited in order to do so. Also, there were no limitations on what any industry can and can not do. The Unit
  • Charles Dickens Tone
    Charles Dickens Tone When creating a story many authors, like Charles Dickens, show and express their feelings on certain topics through their writings. Charles Dickens uses this technique as a universal translator for all of his writings for his readers as he expresses his disgusted views on the judicial system in a Tale of Two Cities. Through literary devices Dickens is able to show us the unfairness of the judicial system, during the French revolution as he creates this disgust tone in chapte
  • The Perversity of the Congo
    The Perversity of the Congo In the novel Heart of Darkness by Joseph Conrad one of the major themes is the perversity of the Congo. What is good and evil in the European world becomes distorted and hazy in the heart of Africa. To the outside world white is good and black is evil; it is as simple as that. This philosophy is embodied in Marlow’s aunt, who believes that his job is to bring light into the land of darkness and to enlighten the savages. This idea, however, becomes corrupted when white
  • Is Small Healthy
    Is Small Healthy Is Small Healthy? Is small healthy? Or did Seckler quite early in his research? Both of these questions arose to me after reading the two articles: “Malnutrition”: An Intellectual Odyssey by David Seckler and “Small but Healthy by Gretel H Pelto and Pertti J. Pelto. In the next couple of pages I hope to compare and contrast these two articles by examining both hypothesis by each. Then, I’m going to give my opinion on the subject. To start out I would like to briefly explain Seck
  • Andrew young
    andrew young Speaking of Andrew Young and his personal accomplishments is difficult to relate to without involving a whole society and their struggles. It is also unkind to speak of the Civil Rights Movement and the heights it attained without illustrating the great dignity of Andrew Young. Many years of his life, has been dedicated to the movement; in a sense he has lived it. For many years his family was a state of mind rather than a physical being from his constant absence. He would crash wit
  • Reform in the Age of jackson
    Reform in the Age of jackson “From about 1825 until the outbreak of the civil war in 1861, the atmosphere in the nation was one of reform” (Boardman, 122). There were five major reform movements present in 19th century America. There was the Utopianism/Communitarian Movement, which established an ideal society away from present politics. Educational reforms were important in the fact of creating taxes to support the public school system, higher education for adults, and mandatory education and a
  • Gun Laws
    Gun Laws States from Michigan to Nebraska to California, as well as the federal government, are considering new rules on letting law-abiding citizens carry guns. Does allowing citizens to carry concealed handguns deter violent crimes? Or does this cause otherwise law-abiding citizens to harm each other? Thirty-one states now have guaranteed their citizens the right to carry concealed handguns if applicants do not have a criminal record or a history of significant mental illness. So what have the

    Marine Corps “From the halls of Montezuma to the shores of Tripoli, we fight our country’s battles in the air, on land and sea. First to fight for right and freedom, and to keep our honor clean, we are proud to claim the title of United States Marine…” (Alexander, 398) Why is this first verse of The Marines’ Hymn so familiar to me and to my parents and grandparents before me? As history writes, the Marines have written their page in history and have also won a place in the hearts and souls of Am
  • RELIGION AS A SOCIAL FORCE
    RELIGION AS A SOCIAL FORCE Religion as a Social Force The Amerindians of the region had their own religious practices and ceremonies before the intervention of any Europeans. For the most part they were polytheistic-worshiping many gods. Much of their rites involved sacrifices, often times humans, as well as dancing singing and smoking. All of that was interrupted with the arrival of the Europeans who insisted that the Amerindians were heathens thus making them inferior. Then and there attempts

  • Roberto Clemente
    Roberto Clemente ˙Roberto Clemente played in an era dominated by the likes of Willie Mays, Mickey Mantle and Hank Aaron, Roberto Clemente was usually overlooked by fans discussing great baseball players. Not until late in his 18-year career did the public appreciate the talents of the 12-time All-Star of the Pittsburgh Pirates. Even though he was arguably the best baseball player at that time he was also a devote humanitarian which ultimately led to his death. Roberto Clemente Walker was born in

This novel takes place in the late 1800s on the Congo River in Africa, which Conrad uses to help illustrate these two themes. Charlie Marlow, the main character, is a sea captain whose exploration leads him to Africa on a freshwater navigation. Marlows journey from the continent of Europe to the continent o

  • The Duel Nature of the progressive Era
    The Duel Nature of the progressive Era The Dual Nature of the Progressive Era One common misconception is to view the Progressive movement as a unified core of reform-minded crusaders dedicated to improving the social welfare of American society. While this viewpoint is not entirely incorrect, it is only a partial and thereby misleading assessment of the movement that categorized the early part of the nineteenth-century. What some may fail to appreciate is the duality of the period-the cry for

Yet, the people who were putting their mark of unacceptance upon those committing these thought to be deplorable acts, were unaware of the actual situations, and in many cases, committing the same acts themselves. This was true during the Holy Wars, the Crusades and similar events. People who were not involved, often thought these acts of inhumanity to be reprehensible, but the parties

But as the times changed, changes that should have been made years ago, didn’t become effective until the Personal Responsibility and Work Opportu
