Stop the Violence.

Why We Are All Equal

"I pledge of allegiance to the flag of the United States of America and to the Republic for which it stands, one Nation." Boom that's all, yes there is more than just this in The Pledge of Allegiance but one nation is what The United States means to me. Being an American makes me proud to say I know that we go through a lot but as a country we will all get through this. And to the legal immigrants this pertains to you too, you ARE an American. No this isn't an article about politics but rather the rights of the people.

Right now there has been a race issue in The United States which makes me disappointed that we aren't stronger as a nation. Do we forget to reflect on the fact that we already have ISIS against us? So why can't we stand together and work together in a calm matter to solve the situations that come about throughout our lives rather than making it a complete race issue.

Why is it always the color of ones skin we look to rather than the situation at hand. We are all born and created equal. This article isn't meant to sway your opinion but more so to make you think why are we fighting like this?

What is at stake is the fact that this is a violence issue not a race issue. Watching the news with my parents it is sad to see that in order to voice our opinions as Americans we lean toward shootings and so forth. We the people are entitled to have a voice but not in this manner. We are better than this. We are stronger than this and by turning to guns and killing one another well let me just tell you, you made ISIS's job easier.

Now that I have possibly and hopefully helped you think about the actions we take in situations and which ways can be calmer for our country, I hope we can stand together as one again.

Dating A 'Type-A' Girl

You have probably been asked before if you were a Type-A or Type-B personality. People who are considered to be "Type A" tend to be impatient, competitive and ambitious.
