An Open Letter to the Girl I Once Was and the Boy Who Had’nt Told His Story: Living My Truth This is to everyone who has never understood who I am as a person and why I came to be The best thing I’ve ever done in my life was realize who I was. That said, the worst thing I’ve ever done in my life was hide, and lie, to myself. My family wasn’t very loving or into talking about their feelings or problems. I had many of those. We liked to sit in circles with our backs turned into each other. Like we were in a club, but couldn’t see the other members. So we decided to keep our eyes focused on life and go through the motions. Drop the kids off at school, make dinner, go to the zoo every summer. But in reality we were all someplace else, someplace alone. Alone and yet all together. So of...

To People Who Aren’t Treated with Enough Respect by: Ochai Agbaji The book I read was the Woman in the White. At first when I was assigned this book I thought of it as a bland old book that I would get bored of after reading over time. What drew me to this book was the word of Mrs. Prater and how she said it was a good classic. This was about a lady named Laura that marries Sir Percival. Things get rough between the couple and this results in trust issues because of Sir Percival’s actions. When Walter finds a mysterious lady named Anne (woman in the white). He learns more and more that she is an Asylum escape and the towns people are looking for her. Laura and Anne share similar traits. As the book goes on Anne gets poisoned by Fosco and Glyde and they think they killed Laura...

In my high school English class, I was given the novel The Count of Monte Cristo. The assignment was to find an issue in the book that I can connect to the real world and myself as well. If you haven’t read it, The Count of Monte Cristo is about a young man, named Edmond Dantes, who is having a great life at the beginning of the novel. Three men, who Dantes considered friends, were jealous of him and plotted against him. Dantes was sentenced to life in prison, and he was betrayed by another person in the process. While in prison, Dantes befriends a man named Faria. Dantes tells Faria how he ended up in prison, then Faria explains to Dantes the real reason why. After hearing that, Dantes wants to bring justice for himself. He develops an elaborate plan to escape and do just that. The...

In my English class we had an assignment to read a classic. If you knew me, you would know that I despise reading old books. With me not liking old books I had no idea what to choose. I pretty much got stuck with The Woman in White. I was thinking like oh my gosh I’m Going to hate this, it’s so long I hate this. The first 75 pages it was like watching paint dry. My mind was basically dying. But then it gets pretty interesting and you want to know all that happens. Twist and turns here, crazy people there it turned out to be a really good book. But basically a Girl Laura marries a dude Sir Percival who is a jerk. The book then is about her Friend Walter and sister Marian and also others along the way cracking down on this dude because he has a huge secret and tries to use his power for...

cc National 'Safeguarding' Team and IICSA 10/01/2017 Dear Bishops Willmott and Dakin and Archbishop Welb, I enclose the reminder of the formal complaint sent to Bishop Willmott last year, unfortunately he decided to try and fob me off through his secretary, adding to his image of dishonesty, deceit and cowardice. Please make sure that both my formal complaint against the behaviour of yourselves and the Godless, evil and criminal Jersey Deanery are now either addressed or passed to a competent safeguarding body, as it is clear from the pronouncements without evidence of the Archbishop and Bishop about safeguarding in Jersey being good, while I was being destroyed, that neither the Archbishop nor Bishop have the faintest clue what safeguarding is. That is reinforced by...

I take time from my busy day to write this in reaction to all that is happening and that has happened lately in this nation. The cruel hostility that is sweeping the world and what I feel is the answer. Do I pretend to be a scholar? No. I’m a person who lives in this world, works hard every day, enjoys the things I’m inclined to when I have the time and hopes for a brighter future. A brighter future, not just for me, but for all those who walk this earth with me. I am a Christian and I believe we were all put here for a reason. We are all equal in the sight of God and we should be in the sight of human kind also. However, human kind is weak and quick to accuse, humiliate and distrust. It is a part of who we are and until we chose to break past this fault in our being we can never really...

" A smooth sea never made a skillful sailor" Dear 2016, You've finally come to an end. You've brought plenty of sadness, anger, stress, joy, happiness, growth, and love within the year. It's finally time to say goodbye. I want to let go of all the things that has brought negativity over the past year. Whether it be someone or something. I am not afraid to let go of someone that's dragging me down, now would be the best time to do it. " New year, New me" that yearly saying, said every year. Yet, no one is really getting the concept of it. Just because there is a new year does not mean there is a new you. For there to be a "new you", you must change your ways, routines, your self-morals. How you think about the world can impact your daily life. I am...

It’s the most wonderful time of the year! Excited to attend once again the Misa De Gallo after two years. It’s just my way of feeling the spirit of Christmas whilst away from home. First day – Woah! We have a big church but the people of God is bigger than this. The mass went thru with most of us standing for about 02 ½ hours. The wind blows as freezing as ice. Winter it is! Second Day – Friday weekend means make-up free day. When going to church, I prefer to be the simplest possible. I know God will understand and besides there’s no one whom I should look pretty of. Third Day – Extra off weekend means make-up free day part two. Still feeling cold but not as cold as the first two days. Maybe we are getting used to it. Fourth Day – Sleeping after work is the best remedy to...

There are no words yet dozens flood my mind. My life is so rooted in love for one another, it is framed in compassion and is propelled by seeking harmonious relationships. Today, all of that is being tested, thus creating a severe inner conflict that I don't see subsiding anytime soon. I'll admit, I was naive about the landscape of our country and how people actually think and how concerned others are to have say over other peoples’ lives. I proudly blame the bubble I’ve chosen to live inside of, one that has continually offered comfort, support, and protection. What's most telling in all of this, and most heartbreaking, is that I don't have to look too far outside of that bubble to see such opposition personified. I'm told it's not personal, but why do I feel so victimized? Maybe...
