Trust takes years to build seconds to break and forever to repair.

Trust is something that is very important especially in the movie. In the movie the kids that were blind had to trust there guides. If they’re guides were to have done something to break that trust the kids I don’t think would have continued through the expedition. This theme is important to me because in sports such as football you have to trust your team mates that they will get there job done and accomplish the play.

Proud to be an American

        Have you ever thought of what defines freedom, or how other people feel that are not “free”.  Freedom should be important to everyone. When I think of something free, the first things to come to mind are the 13 amendments, the past choices and history that makes it so we are free, as well as holidays.
         As I said the thirteen amendments are one of the first things that come to mind. I think that these three amendments describe freedom excellently, the women’s suffrage act, the right to bare arms, and the abolition of slavery. The reason I think the women’s suffrage act is important is because after women gained rights, any gender of adult was allowed to vote and have a say in political decisions. The right to bare arms is important to me because in other countries if you own a gun, you could be persecuted severely. The abolition of slavery is very important because after slavery was abolished, you couldn’t own people, which, in my opinion, shouldn’t happen any way.
         Another factor, I describe as freedom, is America’s past choices.  WWI was supposed to end all wars, but America went to war with the Germany in WWII.  If America would have lost WWII, we may be speaking German. When America went to war in Afghanistan, the fight began over terroristic reasons. People were given freedom when women earned the right to vote and when slavery was abolished.  Remember, if people didn’t discover America and explore we would not be here.
         One last thing, I think describes freedom is the holidays we have. Christmas and Easter are examples because they are religious holidays. Veteran’s day is an important holiday because it recognizes the soldiers who gave us these privileges.
         I hope this essay has stressed that being able to do more or less what we want to do, should be important to you. Even though I did not give huge recognition to the American soldiers, I am very thankful for the freedom they fought for.  Always tell a solider, thank you.
