In our time of today, we see more barriers being set up and used in our country. There are companies that make barriers that can be seen physically and electronic ones that cannot be seen with the naked eye. There are barriers set up at our college universities, private, and public schools to keep our students safe while attending classes. When we are traveling on roads such as expressways and local streets we might see barriers set up because of repair work that workers are doing on the road. If these road barriers are not set up on the roads to repair them, the drivers who drive on them could endanger of damaging their vehicles or worst losing their lives.  We also see barriers set up in front of sports arenas, large financial institutions, and, government buildings. The barriers that are put in these places are for the purpose of security and safety of the people who come to them. The barriers at these places help to prevent some possible attacks from people who wish to cause harm to the buildings and those in attendance.

Bounce Back


Over the last fifteen years, as sports fans, we have seen some amazing comebacks in sports history. In October 2004 the Boston Red Sox became the first team in Major League Baseball to come back being down three games to zero and to win the ALCS against their rival the New York Yankees. After the Red Sox completed those amazing feet, they went on to win their first World Series championship. The Red Sox victory to brought to an end an eighty-six-year championship drought that the city of Boston had previously experienced. In June of 2016, the Cleveland Cavaliers and LeBron James won their first NBA Championship in franchise history. The year before the team had lost the NBA finals against the Golden State Warriors.

However, the Cavaliers and LeBron James made NBA history by bouncing back to defeat the Warriors four games to three and winning the NBA championship for the team and the city of Cleveland, Ohio.

A Mother’s Love


On Mother’s Day, we celebrate and honor mothers that are in our lives. As I think about my own mother, I know she is in Heaven and also in my heart. There so many memories that I have of her, but there are three that remind me of how much she loved me. The first memory I have of her is how she would take me and my sister for walks throughout our neighborhood. One walk we took was to the library where she introduced me and my sister to the world of books and why it was important for us to read. A second memory that I have of my mother was how she got up every morning to get me and my sister ready for school. After she got us ready for school, she then got herself ready to go work. We did not have a car so she took the time to walk us to school and then she got on the bus and then went to work at her job. My mother always demonstrated to me and my sister that having a strong work ethic was important and the person who had it good things would come to them.
