I choose this book because in the book we learned about how one mother struggle to cope with the death of her son. Her son was killed while on duty serving for our country.
This book consists of numerous letters’ soldier’s send to their families while they were on duty. The book focuses on what the soldier’s are struggling with and their experience experiences. It also focuses on how their families at home are dealing with them not being home. In one case a mother lost her son she was furious. In another case a mother got her daughter at home but she wasn’t the same emotionally, physically and mentally. The hardship the soldiers face once they return home is endless.
This will be used in my research to help me discuss the emotional effects on the families. Also how they deal with the lost of their love ones.

- Lord, Do it Again In recent years a great cry has begun to rise up from the congregations and clergy of many churches in The United States and even around the world. The prayerful cry is that God would again visit us, his people, with a revival of such power that it should be called another "Great Awakening". Many pray for such a revival without knowledge of what they are asking God for. Many are thinking of large crowds and miracles, such as what was seen in The Healing Revivals of the 1950 's....

- Since a child I can remember being intrigued by the motto “In God we Trust” printed on dollar bills and engraved on coins. What God do we trust in. Is the God we trust in Jesus. Why do we trust in him. These were just a few questions that came to my mind. With all the greed and capitalistic corruption that exist in society, how could men war over money that reminds us “In God we Trust”. I was under the assumption that this statement was symbolic of the authority God had within the system of commerce.... [tags: American currency history]

- Should the American public trust those they place in power. Absolutely, but this trust is not always there and even more recently has become an even greater illusion. Up until 1968, American citizens for the most part trusted their leaders and expected that they would be honest with them and act in their best interest. However, this credulous relationship faltered when the term “Credibility Gap” was coined in 1965. This rift between the public and the government continues to grow well into the 21st Century....

- Never, when the cards are down, go to the park south of Critchdale. The lights, for one, are always low casting shadow upon shadow onto the ground, which feels as though with every step you are getting closer and closer, to the end. The freshly cut grass pushes the aroma of fertiliser and everything beneath your feet up your nostrils. The air in the park south of Critchdale is dry like nothing you have ever experienced before. Your throat goes dry like a barren desert with just one gulp of air.... [tags: Creative Writing Essays]
