In the last three weeks I started a new book. It is called Martin the Warrior by Brian Jaques. So far it is a really cool book. It is amazing how Brian Jaques is able to make a serious action fantasy story with small woodland creatures. I have to get used to the dialogue because it is written in slang. That is the impact on me now is that I am having to adjust my reading style and get used to the strange dialogue.

In the last three weeks what I have read that has affected me, was about all the school threats, and shootings that have been going on around the country. In the past couple years our society has gotten more and more threaten whether it being by terrorist or other Americans. Lately I feel unsafe in public areas/schools just because there is so much violence in our world, where you could be anywhere and be attacked. It’s been a wake up call to a lot of schools and environments to secure their areas and look out for the unexpected.

I have not had much time to read on the trip due to a very busy scedule but I had to read my geography book, many many flyers and tourist books on turkey( there arent many on pkaistan), and my Bible alot. Th ething that affected me the most was the Bible my family is going to have to make a huge decicion in the next couple of weeks so my parents were incouraging me to do lots of that so i could help them make the decision. It is a life changing decision and could change my life forever. I read about a girl that followed a very iportant person to her very religiously. It made me realize that this is my family that would be moving and no matter were it is i shoulod follow jsut as faithfully as the girl even though it could potentially mean half way across the world.

sorry its late did not have internet access since the 14th so coul dnot do this till i was in heathrow airport in london sorry.

Phil --
Is this the only text that you have read recently?

Terry Sale said...

Erin --
Where did you read about these events? Was it in the newspaper? online? magazines? I'm curious what kinds of sources you are reading.

Terry Sale said...

Lacey --
Sounds like an interesting book. Has all your reading for the past 3 weeks been in that book?

Terry Sale said...

Joy --
It's so cool to receive a homework assignment from London! No apologies necessary, considering all your travels. It sounds like you have been doing some serious thinking.

I have been reading the book "Wicked". I started reading it when I found out my parents bought tickets to the Broadway show that was based on this book. The beginning of the book was really good and pretty easy to follow. They talked about how the mother has a baby that wasn’t normal but decided to keep this. I thought about this part for a really long time. I have been in arguments with people lately about abortion and this part of the book was shocking because there are a lot of people that would have had and abortion if their baby was born green, with sharp teeth and, the hardest to deal with, born a hermaphrodite. I think a lot of people would have chosen to get rid of a baby like this and I think it was very courageous to keep a baby like this.
