Babe Ruth Babe Ruth Babe Ruth is an American hero. He transformed baseball from a sport, to a national pastime when it needed it the most. Coming off of the wake of the Black Socks scandal, baseball was headed downhill. It had a bad reputation, and interest was waning.

Dealing with Drugs My mother knew sports were the most important thing in my life. She tried to use my love of sports to keep me away from drugs.

Drugs Why should we team up against drugs? The answer to that question is very simple. Drugs can absolutley do nothing to help you in your life. The only sure thing that drugs can do for you is either is put you in jail or kill you. And I can think of many things on how it can ruin your whole life. And music promotes a lot of this, even in the sixties when it was illegal to write songs about drugs. What if you were on the verge of going to a professional sport such as the NFL. It is your senior

What Drives History? History is the Essence of Innumerable Biographies -Thomas Carlyle What drives history? Before we answer this question, we must go deeper and answer a more important question: What is history?
