Calm Down


When a crisis happens to us it can sometimes be very upsetting and cause us to have a cloud of uncertainty over us. I remember one time went I went to the eye doctor to have my eyes examined by the optometrist. I had been having some trouble with my vision and it had been over five years since I had my last eye check-up. As the eye doctor was doing her examination of my eyes, she kept noticing that I was having difficulty with my peripheral vision. The eye doctor requested that I take a special eye test which she felt would help her better determine why I was having so much trouble with my eyes. When the results came back from the test, she felt that I was possibly losing my ability to see things or people who were in my peripheral view.

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.

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. The year they won their first championship, Cleveland wad down three games to one to the defending championships and that year the Golden State Warriors had won a record-breaking 73 and 9 in the regular season. 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.
