Time Of The Year Where Hurricanes Come Through

During the fall time, hurricanes do damage to many states. In 2016 the hurricane Matthew is coming up from Florida up to Maryland. Being from Maryland I rarely feel the force of a hurricane. Normally the hurricane will lose all of it force by the time it gets to Maryland. The last hurricane to actually hit Maryland was Sandy. Now that I go to school in South Carolina I have felt the experience of other hurricanes. School was closed all week so that South Carolina can prepare for it. Last year was awful because of the hurricane Hermine destroying people homes.

During school the power was out and school was closed for a week. The roads were flooded so it was hard to go anywhere. The weather advisories that I am normally prepared for is snow storms. Being up in Maryland snow storms are very common during winter. Hurricane affects people way worse than snow storms. People houses are being damaged during this time. My friend's houses were damaged during this time which is quite sad. Some people even die because of the strength of the hurricane. Nothing is as worst as Katrina. Katrina took the homes of so many people and the state alone of New Orleans was just destroyed. They had to rebuild their cities up due to the damage. People had to evacuate from the state that they were born and raised in. The natural disaster of hurricanes are something that happens depending on the area you reside in. I cannot relate to the people who have went down this path of hurricanes destroying their homes.

I am quite thankful to be in an area where things like that do not happen every year. This time of the year must be the worst for the residents of South Carolina and Florida. They will get through this with help from their communities. During this time be cautious of where you are at. Stay in your home until the storm has passed. Be safest that you can be while hurricanes are going on. They can be so devastating towards your home. None the less have safety plans for when they come into action.

Social Media Or Soul Media

To the generation that cares way too much about affirmation.

Emma Smith
  • This semester I am taking the ever so famous class, Writing 101. Walking into it, I had heard the horror stories about each major assignment. I have to admit, it’s not a class that I am fond of. But, major assignment #2 got me thinking, we had to create a research question based off of a topic that we are interested in.

Two weeks prior, I watched a very interesting documentary on Netflix. Miss Representation was recommended to me by one of my friends and I have to say the topic is absolutely mind blowing. Social Media and Female Body Image. How Social Media makes girls see this unnatural perfection of ‘beauty’ that really doesn’t exist. But female body image isn’t the only thing affected by social media.

Sex And The Church

A letter to fellow believers.

Amanda Hayes
  • I know many of you just read that title and thought it was scandalous to see something so “risque” in the same setting as something holy. Well guess what – sex is part of that. Everyone seems to think they are separate, which makes since because most people treat them as though they are complete polar opposites. Shall we think this through?

Who created the Church body? God. Who created the body? Also God. If we know God to be the creator of all things, we cannot leave sex out of that equation. God created sex, people! Praise Him! Like all great things, the world has twisted and perverted it. The world has stained it so badly that even many church congregations see it only as stained and keep quiet about that part of God’s word. Many people know that God told Adam and Eve to “be fruitful and multiply” (Genesis 1:28), but a lot of people overlook the entirety of Song of Solomon. The entire book is dedicated to telling of the love and sex between man and wife. God blessed us with the gift of intimacy, one to be shared between husband and wife. Church if we teach of sex as the blessing that it is, more people will start treating it as such. If we stop viewing sex as this unspeakable act, the temptation would be lessened. With the fall of man, humans naturally desire things they should not have. So if more people speak of it with gladness and praise, and do not hide it in the darkness as if it were vile, fewer people would be drawn to it for the wrong reasons. More people would appreciate it for what it is: a gift from God.

What you did sounds dumb to me

The Truth About My Parents' Divorce

Considering im 18 now & you're one of the best men i've ever met since you have a child; me. I want you to know that I love you, more than anyone, I love you. I don't forgive you for the way you hurt my mother. I'm hurt because you broke our family. Thing went down hill the day you found Laquita. You we're distant & shortly after my mother turned into the coldest, saddest women to walk past me. She's my best friend & so are you. Not one day goes by where I don't wonder what she did wrong. How on earth could you trade your family & the women who loved you unconditionally for a home wrecker? Sounds dumb to me.
