I'm AliveIn 2011 14,000 people had their names incorrectly entered into the government database as dead. This can cause many issues, like not receiving disability checks, having loan payments and rent check bounds bounce, and evening getting your accounts closed. There were obviously mistakes for these people.
The apostle Paul was not mistaken when he said that the Ephesian Believers were at one point dead-spiritually dead. They were dead in the sense that they were separated from God, enslaved to sin, and condemned under the wrath of God. What a state of hopelessness!
Yet God in His goodness took action to reverse this condition for them and for us. The living God “who gives life to the dead” (Romans 4:17) poured out his Rich mercy and great love by sending His Son Jesus to this earth. Through Christ’s death and resurrection, we are made alive.
When we believe in the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, we go from death to life. Now we live to rejoice in His goodness
The Origins of Dragon MythologyThe Origins of Dragon Mythology
Dragons are fantastical beasts that appear in almost all cultures around the world. Dragons are symbols of man’s hatred and greed as we known as the dangerous reptiles that hoard gold. As for western dragons which I will be speaking of exclusively in this essay they are typically large, lizard-like in appearance, have leathery bat-like wings, and breathe fire. Since Dragon can literally apply to any mythological animal that is slightly reptilian, we will talk about your traditional western wyrm. But how did the dragon of western culture come to be this way, what were their origins and inspirations? In this essay I will discuss the evolution of Dragon mythology in western culture. I do not claim to have any credentials on this topic, I am not a historian or any type authority on this topic I’m just espousing what I believe to be a theory on what I believe to be how dragons arouse in European culture an
Senior Research Paper: Violence in Video GamesMatt Hines

Violence in Video Games
What comes to mind when you hear the phrase “video games”? A fat plumber? A blue hedgehog? What about violence? Back in the day, it was rare that you could play a game with any sort of blood, and the violence was cartoonish at best. Nowadays, you can’t even play Call of Duty without hearing someone bickering about the blood and gore. The media believes that video games are a bad influence on today’s society because of that violence, along with things like drugs. Many gamers believe otherwise.
Video games in general are relatively young. According to “First Video Game,” ignoring the related-but-unnecessary debate on what the first game really was, the first well-known computer game was 1961’s Spacewar!, with the first home console debuting only five years later. Fast-forward to 1976, and you have the (in)famous Death Race, a game based on the cult movie
Pink Floyd Analytical Essay“The Lunatic is in my Head”
Dark Side of the Moon is an album by British rock band, Pink Floyd. It was recorded in April 1973, and quickly climbed the top of the record charts. There it stayed for 741weeks and grossed near 45 million worldwide. The overall theme for the album reflects the inner struggle of the average youth of the time, which still holds true today. Roger Waters, the band’s bass player, based the album off the former guitar player, Syd Barrett. Syd Barrett had numerous mental instabilities, this inspired Waters to create an album that reflected that. Dark Side of the Moon is one of the most influential albums in history, but not many people understand what it is really about. The album’s concept is the issues of a mental patient, and what is going on in his head at the hospital where he is being withheld from society. The concept is strongly held in the lyrics, tempos, and the mood of each song.
The first song on the album is “Speak to me&
Book Report: A Night to RememberWalter Lord published his account of the Titanic disaster in 1955. It was the first retelling of the famous shipwreck to appear in decades and is now considered by most to be the best book ever written about the doomed “unsinkable” ship. It tells the story of a cold night in April, 1912, when the luxury liner RMS Titanic, on her maiden voyage from Southampton to New York, struck an iceberg in the frigid North Atlantic and sank, taking the lives of 1500 of its 2200 passengers and crew. Some of those lost were among the most well-known names of the day, and others were impoverished immigrants hoping for a new life in America. Rich and poor, famous and unknown, all were thrown together in one massive drama of death that both defined the societal expectations of the Edwardian era and sounded its death knell.
What sets "A Night to Remember" apart from other books about the Titanic is that the book focuses solely on the people on board. It is a fitting choice, as the story of the
El comienzoNarradora: Tifanny Winter
Aclaraciones los personajes son totalmente míos y además la historia
Recuerdo el primer día en que te conocí, el primer instante en que nuestras miradas se cruzaron sin darle importancia, ya que aquel accidente, bueno aquel choque que sucedió en la mañana ninguno presto la atención suficiente para darnos cuenta de que la persona que estaba al frente tirada, era la persona que más querríamos y amaremos en un futuro, para que entiendan a cabalidad esta historia comenzare desde aquella preciosa mañana.
Me desperté tarde para mi buena suerte, claramente me levante de un salto de la cama para prepararme para la universidad, desayune lo más rápido casi atragantándome pero sin darle importancia, me cambie con lo primero que encontré en mis cajones del armario, m
El Arte de Usar y TirarOdio la palabra piscolabis. No es porque suene especial, diferente, única... o quizás sí, por lo que desentraña y pasaré a explicar más tarde. Lo que más rabia me da es por el pequeño trauma que me recuerda, surgido de un derivado que poco tiene que ver con la propia palabra aunque se le aplique igualmente.
Mi trauma surgió a partir de un pseudo-gafapaster que catalogaba libros en plan “aperitivo” o “plato fuerte”. Si me hubiese mirado en ese momento, se habría preguntado por mi cara de teleñeco, pero se limitó a seguir con su verborrea y “especiedeprepotenciaquenollegaperodalaimpresión” con respecto a sus gustos personales. No recuerdo de qué me habló, pues divagaba entre un infinito inventado y una realidad aparente, a causa de la impresión que ya no se me ha borrado sobre catalogar la cultura como si fuera algo de consumir... y poco m
Mexican Drug War in Mexico and its HistoryMexican Drug War in Mexico and its History
Ever since the month of December of 2006, Mexico and the surrounding Continent of South America have been fighting a long drug war for years now. The war between the Drug Cartels and Mexican government has affected the country for a very long time. The number of deaths on both sides has been very high in the past years. Along with the drug trafficking, there is also the problem with the shootouts and people trafficking. However, with the help of the US government and other countries nearby, the amount of Drug Cartels has gone down in large numbers. But the Mexican Drug War hasn’t stopped just yet.
In the Illegal Drug Trade-which in the US is handled by the DEA (Drug Enforcement Administration)-, there isn’t just straight-across drugs being trafficked. And not pharmaceuticals, either. Most of the drugs being traded across Mexico and the surrounding countries are more along the lines of Heroin, M
Descriptive essay of BeachAs I walk down to the coast from my hotel, the sand, as white and pure as snow, extends along the whole expanse of the seashore. I hear the seagulls loudly shriek as they soar gracefully above. As I step onto the beach, the soft, warm sand squishes between my toes. My nostrils detect the sweet lotion mixing with the crisp breeze off of the ocean. When I near the water I hear the crashing waves collide against the shore with their relaxing, rhythmic splashes like smooth jazz. Stepping into the water, I feel its cool touch envelop my legs and slowly rise up my body as I wade out farther into the sea. Plunging under the surface, I taste the bitter salt of the ocean in my mouth and rise back to the surface. While the sun leisurely sinks into the ocean, I see majestic dolphins leap out of the dark blue water and dive back in as if silently saying farewell to the gorgeous day.
