Haiti earthquake

The earthquake in Haiti hit on January 12, 2010 at 4:53 p.m. It struck at a 7.0 magnitude. 3 million people were in need of emergency aid after the earthquake. The earthquake sent 33 after shocks at the rating magnitude from 4.2 to 5.9. The red cross sent a relief team from Geneva and the UN's World Food Program is flying in emergency food aid in 2 planes.

The topic of abortion

I think in class we should talk about the topic of abortion. We could do research about how often it occurs in the US then debate on our opinion of it and if we think it should be allowed in the US still or if it should be considered murder or what we think it is.

My Blog Progress

I think that the blog has helped me with my spelling because at the begging I was not able to spell things at all and I always did the text talk (u, y, wat, bc, ect.) and now I have a hard time doing the text talk because on here I want everything to look as professional as possible. I think it has also helped my typing because I type a lot faster and more accurately then I did before and I think it is really cool to see the improvement in my typing abilities.

My Thoughts About Grief Girl by: Erin Vincent

I think Grief Girl is a good book if you haven't just lost a family member. If you have I wouldn't suggest you read this book until you have got over the death completely. But other then that it's a great book and i would suggest it to anyone. It is a great book and very well thought out. I really appreciate the illustrations the book draws out. It is very descriptive and planned very well. The most shocking part about this story is it's not a story it's true this really happened to Erin Vincent.
The plot of the book is about a girl whose parents got into an accident her mother died right away and her father lived for about a month then died. They were killed crossing the road by a truck. Her life change in the split second that she got the news about her parents. Her older sister was instantly changed to become a mother/guardian of her and her little brother.
I would recommend this book to mostly teenage girls so they can see that what they have is more then most people and to put them in Erin's shoes so they know how she felt when she got the news that her parents were dead.
This book was 306 pages of fun sadness and pure shock. "The priest says his "ashes to ashes" speech as they lower Dad into the hole next to Mum."

My Opinion: Capital Punishment

I think that the death penalty should only be enforced if the crime is really really extreme like a murder or rape. I don't think that anyone else should be put to the death penalty because it's not right because they didn't do anything really all that extreme to be killed for it. I think that anyone that is put to the death penalty for anything other then those 2 reasons isn't right and they are just killing someone to so they aren't any better then a murderer. If they can kill a person for a small crime then the should be killed because they are doing a big crime. But because they don't neither should the people. The people that do the smaller crimes should only be put in jail for a long time.

Innocent or Guilty?

I think Steve is innocent. I'm not quite sure why but I have a strong feeling that he is innocent because he sounds like somebody that would never kill anyone. I don't think he would have a part in that even though all he did was go in then give a signal that is not being a part of the crime. Even though he did take part in the crime I don't think it was that big of a deal for how bad the crime ended up at the end of the whole thing. He also gives me a good feeling like he is innocent because he wants to be a good role model for his little brother. I don't think he would put his parents through that much pain either. When he is just sitting in his cell he is always mad because he is in trouble for no reason.

21 years 3 months

In 21 years and 3 months I will be 37 years and 1 month. I will have lost my whole life practically because I thew it away because of a bad decision. All just because I decided to be cool. I won't have much chose of what to do but I will try to start over and get my feet underneath me again. My life wouldn't look very good because I got put in jail at the age of 15 years and 10 months and get out at the age of 37 years and 1 month. I probably wouldn't have much of a chance to get married or having children.
