No Difference

Small as a peanut,
Big as a giant,
We're all the same size
When we turn off the light
Rich as a sultan,
Poor as a mite,
We're all worth the same
When we turn off the light.
Red, black or orange,
Yellow or white,
We all look the same
When we turn off the light.
So maybe the way
To make everything right
Is for God to just reach out
And turn off the light!

Sheldon Allan Silverstein

This poem was selected by me for many reasons. My faith in God makes me believe that when we look at people without judging, or with the light off, that everyone is the same. When reading this poem I thought about all of the people I know in my life, how they all differ, but how they are all important and the same to me. Each day I try to look people as though the light is off, how God looks at them, and make sure that I do not judge. The style of this poem is shown in many ways. The author writes the poem without any stanzas and uses traditional form. The phrase “when we turn off the light” is repeated multiple times throughout the poem. In addition, after light is mentioned at the end of a line, the following sentence rhymes with the word light. The tone is consistent throughout the poem. Using complete opposites show the reader exactly how different people are.

A Wounded Soldier

-Gary Ferris

A wounded soldier lies alone in bed,
While a million thoughts run through his head.
He remembers the day when he was strong.
When greatness seemed where he'd belong.

He's not sure what landed him here.
But his soul is troubled and full of fear.
All his dreams, they seem forsaken,
And he wonders if maybe he was mistaken.

Quietly he wonders if anyone cared,
Or remembers him for all he shared.
Do they even know he's still a man,
Holding on to whatever he can?

His comrades have all shunned away,
Either ashamed or…...

...archetype in Jung’s understanding is that of the self. Jung’s use of the term self differed from the usual use of the term. The self represents the striving for unity of all parts of the personality. It is the organizing principle of the psyche that draws unto itself and harmonizes all the archetypes and their expressions. Depending on the occasion and our personal needs, the self allows us to be socially acceptable at work, our persona, outrageous at a Halloween party, our shadow, and emotional at a concert, our shadow. The self, rather that the ego, is the true midpoint of my personality. The self lies on the boundary between conscious and unconscious, reason and unreason. The development of the self is life’s goal, but the self archtype cannot begin to emerge until the other personality stystem have been fully develped. Jung uses the term psych to refer to all psychological processes, emphasizing that it embraces both conscious and unconscious process. Jung used libido in a more generalized fasion as an undifferentiated energy that moves the person forward. The ego is one’s conscious perception of self. There are two basic attitueds of an individual, they are introversion and extraversion and four functions; sensation, thinking, feeling, and intution. In each person, one of the atitudes and one of the functions is dominant, and its opposite is weaker. The other two functions play an auxiliary role. The personal unconscious includes experiences of an individual’s......

...risky, compared with theorizing, as it threatens safety and security in the classroom, particularly when students share personal stories of racism (Cochran-Smith, 2000). Cochran-Smith concluded that personal and fictional stories, both read and written, help to construct an antidiscriminatory practice, but they do have the potential to be misused, to unleash powerful emotions that can harm students if not worked through. The transformative education paradigm focuses on facilitating meaning in a learner's life, seeks to make connections with both the learner's personal unconscious and the collective unconscious, is energized by the dynamic tensions between the self and the Self (total psychic being/personality), and the self and primordial archtypes, and utilizes the processes of discernment; during receptivity, the person listens and opens to discomforting messages, next the person recognizes significant connections, and during grieving the person faces loss, ‘the loss of prior ways of seeing reality — the loss of fundamental assumptions which until now had brought certainty and security’ (Boyd and Myers 1988, 277). In short, the learning is essential in order to diminish or reduce the workplace accidents and to make the workers fully aware of their job in order to ensure complete protection of themselves. Continuous learning is encouraged along with new techniques and technologies so that the worker would clearly know how to go about the new processed and to prevent......

...CUSTOMER_PACKAGE_INTEREST as a foreign key. 6.22: A table that stores foreign key combinations which link two entities in a N:M strong entity relationship is called an intersection table. It has only two columns which contains foreign keys, and a composite primary key consisting of both foreign keys. It is necessary because there is no other logical place for foreign keys in either of two actual entities. 6.23: An ID-dependent relationship entity has additional columns that contain attribute values associated to each row in the related entity, whereas an intersection table has only two columns containing foreign key links to two tables in the N:M relationship. 6.24: ID-dependent entities can be used for representing 1. N:M relationships 2. Archtype/Instance relationships. 3. Associated relationships 4. Storing multivalued attributes 6.25: An association entity relationship is denoted by storing primary key values of two entities in an N:M strong entity as a composite primary key, and thereby adding one or more additional columns to the table to store attribute values that are specific to the rows of the table. From the above example CUSTOMER_PACKAGE_INTEREST table adding an additional column OFFERED with the possible values of {Yes, No}, then we will have converted an intersection table into an ID-dependent association entity. 6.26: By replacing a multivalued attribute with columns in a new table we represent a multivalued attribute. From the above example,......

Bloodlines of the Illuminati

...know things about the Rockefellers. 9 Bloodlines of Illuminati Financial Wizzards & Wealthy Cults The Rothschild Bloodline Two neighbor horse farmers came together one day to talk business. The first farmer sold his horse to the second for a quarter million dollars, and then bought it back for about $20 more. He could now advertise his horse (actually worth $20), as a horse he that he had paid over a quarter of a million dollars for. We can laugh over such schemes. And perhaps we should laugh at ourselves for having been fooled, for if there is one area in life that exceeds the religious in deception, and touches all of us it is the financial. What else can we do about it except laugh? The famous poet Lord Byron describes the archtype of our two farmers in 1823, Who keeps the world, both old and new, in pain Or pleasure? Who makes politics run glibber all? The shade of Bonaparte’s noble daring? Jew Rothschild and his fellow-Christian, Baring. You’ll learn about some other ,,neighbor horse traders" in this chapter too. ROTHSCHILD TALKS ABOUT THEIR DYNASTY Lord Rothschild in his book The Shadow of a Great Man quotes a letter sent from Davidson on June 24, 1814 to Nathan Rothschild, ,,As long as a house is like yours, and as long as you work together with your brothers, not a house in the world will be able to compete with you, to cause you harm or to take advantage of you, for together you can undertake and perform more than any house in the world."(1) The closeness......
