February 12th Hope

"if you are alive, there is hope for a better day and something good to happen. If there is nothing good left in the destiny of a person, he or she will die." this quote to me is so inspirational. The quote its self is so beautiful that i now live by it. It truly is inspirational and really gets me through my day knowing that maybe the next will be better and also to never give up my destiny or else i will fall. I hope that people with depression or people that want to hurt themselves read this quote so they could maybe stop what they want to do to themselves and look up to what could be a bigger and better future.

February 15th Ishmael's escaping from death

In the book "A Long Way Gone," The writer Ishmael has described his experiences as death defying. In the book he has escaped the clutches of death multiple amounts of times. One of many experiences with death would include when the rebel army had token him and his brother along with some his close friends and were picking people to join the rebel army to fight when his brother wasn't chosen. The rebels were distracted by military and was able to escape by running to a near by forest and hid behind a rotten log as protection.Another example of his escapes from death would include an incident in which a RPG was fired at him and others but luckily he was not harmed but others weren't so lucky. Ishmael had an extremely difficult early life as many could agree and I hope to never experience what Ishmael went through.
