Moms

The reason why moms are determined is because they love to see the success of their child. If your mom wasn’t here you most likely would not be living the life you have today. Moms had to go through 9 months of labor to bring you into this world that shows determination enough. After that they have to care for you for sixteen years and once you’re old enough they will still contact you. This explains why their is a mother's day and a father's day because determined people need a break too. moms are the reason that you have or had a shoulder to cry on and a person to hug when you are feeling down, and a mentor to guide you through lifes tough decisions moms are determined.

Wheelchair Basketball VS Regular Basketball

Both wheelchair basketball and regular basketball are similar they practically have the same rules like no double dribble, no traveling, no 3-second violations etc. Obviously the difference between the two are mainly the wheelchair, but most wheelchair basketball leagues have three fouls instead of five fouls per person to get the player ejected. It is also considered a foul if the player stands up from their wheelchair and the other team is awarded two free throws. A big difference between wheelchair and regular basketball is the fact that you can jump to get rebounds so in Wheelchair basketball it is crucial to get position. The two sports are also very similar because the object of the game is to score more points than the other team and they get to score when the basketball gets into the basket. These two sports show determination when each team has a desire to win but wheelchair basketball shows that you don’t need legs to have a heart.
