I was lying still on the pavement thinking I was dead
Banging my head
Scratching my nails against the thin yellow line
Actually believing that it was my time
Still breathing heavily
My heart still beating steadily
Yet I still believe I've died
And I don't know why
Maybe it's just my emotions
All this, just a flash of commotion
Or maybe I'm in heaven...no
My mother cried out "Thank God."
My fathers face looking bright red, and burning hot
Although I'm not dead
I'm still banging my head
On the pavement
And I've tried so hard to contain it
I can no longer hide
No longer let myself cry
All because of bullying.
There is one question which always has an answer to it. Many are asked this question and they seem to always have an answer to it. Though do they really have an answer to it? This question would be if you could go back in time, who would you see? Many answer this by saying either someone famous or a relative. They might also answer that they would go back to a time where they messed up and fix it. With these answers in mind, it brings up a good scientific question. If one does say, travel back in time, would they disarrange the timeline and create a paradox, or where they supposed to do this action to create what is now the present. Many scientists have pondered on this question 9on the side note that time travel is not available to us right now). With this theory and options in mind, it is hard to say if we were our own grandfather or not. But first, we should bring up the facts of what might happen with time travel into the past. Read more »
You have just learned that over the weekend a Face book page called “Alexis Loser” was set up and a classmate named Alexis Hernandez was bullied online. School IT officials are now conducting a search of student online school accounts (e-mail, Google docs, etc.) for evidence of who might have created the page and posted the insulting and offensive things about Alexis. School officials say they will discipline -- maybe even suspend or expel -- any student involved in the online bullying. Can they do this, considering none of the bullying occurred at school or during school time? Do students have any rights of privacy regarding searches of online school accounts? How about searches of students’ personal Face book accounts? What about the right to say what you want about another student, either online or off, in school or out? Is this “free speech” protected by the First Amendment? When, if ever, should school authorities be able to limit Constitutional rights a student would normally have outside of school? These are very good questions. If this situation was, let’s say, in a workplace, then this situation would be very different. Congress has changed laws just for school, making special exceptions just for the students.
The students can be punished for out of school misconducts. Here are the rules for when to punish bullying:
“Bullying” means any overt act or combination of acts, including an act conducted by electronic means, directed against a student by another (A) is repeated over time; Read more »
The book is by Sharron Draper. Out Of My Mind , got a five out of five rating from Barns and Noble. The book is about a girl in a wheelchair that can't talk and she is upset that she can't talk. She has cerebral palsy. During the book, she is in fifth grade and she starts participating in actual classes. She has to take tests and everything, so she can't say the answers to her helper. Instead she gets a medi-talker, so she can talk.A Medi-Talker is a computer-like machine where you can press buttons , so you can talk and communictae in class, instead of pointing to words, pictures, or phrases. She also makes the spelling bee team in her grade and practices, and practices, and practices, so her team will try to win the country championships!
I personally believe that our current practice of the legality of same-sex marriage is working well. I believe the individual states of the United States should be able to decide for themselves if homosexual marriage should be legalized. This system is working well because if gives the people of the state more voice in the decision than if the US Supreme court were to make the decision. The legislature in individual states are made up of elected officials, voted on by the people. I believe this is a better way for the people of the state to get their voices and opinions heard instead of a small group of "activist judges", as Goerge W Bush put it, make the decision for the entire country. The 10th amendment states that powers that aren't delegated to the United States by the constitution or prohibited by the sates are reserved to the states or to the people. When the states get to decide the residents of that state have a louder voice, heard by their representitives than if the few supreme court judges were to make the decision. Each state has their own sets of laws that the people had decided on. Other marriage laws are decided upon by the state, I don't believe why this marriage decision should be any different. The shocking low age of when people are allowed to wed in the states of Vermont and New Hampshire are different and were decided upon by the individual state, I don't believe this decision is anymore or any less important than the issue of same-sex marriage.

So Harry went with Hagrid and met Ron and Hermionie who would be his best friends for life, he also found out he was famous and that an evil wizard is out to kill him and Harry has many more adventures after that.
i like this book because it is exciting has adventures but still gets in a lot of humor and it draws you in. I have read this book 12 times.
This is what I think about the song
A woman who breaks up with a man. The woman starts to say things, like how she's known him for longer. The man starts dating another person. People startspreading rumors about him leaving her for the first one. Each one gets a share of rumors/lies about them. Basically, there are a lot of rumor going on.

I am running my fingers across your knee and you move it away in a chuckling fleet. Your smirk lights up my eyes and I do it again to see the surprise. This time you hold a serious face and I shove your shoulder, then you smile wide. The time is seeming to slip right through my fingers , being so close to you, I am trying to match my breathing to yours. Our forearms meet on the armrest, heat filling my body. Then our shoulders met in an effect to the warm. I could feel my breath getting uneven, my heart beginning to run away from my body. I begin playing with the ticklish part of your knee. You are calm, still and slowly turn to me, you have lifted your hand to cover your mouth, our distance still so close. I turn my head moments after you do. Your up close now, inches away. I don't move, afraid of losing this closeness. Moments pass before I realize that we are just staring. But I couldn't face the thought of moving, my gut twists in the nervousness of the realization. I turn away, and you follow a few seconds later. My heart slowly returns to me, and butterflies flutter in my tummy. If I didn’t feel anything yet, I definitely do now, but I also definitely felt something before.

It's unassuming. Standard even. Catchy font for the title (all in caps), bright blue cover (designed to catch the eye), reviews by other authors scrawled across the front advertising its "staccato bursts of humour and tragedy" (credited to Jodi Picoult). The only thing out of the ordinary about this particular copy is the yellow sticker crookedly sticking to the front advertising "SIGNED COPY". Which, by itself, is distinctly special (This Reader has never had an autograph of a famous person before). It was a book that This Reader had shown a brief interest in, and she thought that her parents would not take heed. And yet, there it was, under the black and white newspaper that her parents use as wrapping for gifts. Read more »

No real name yet, sorry. Ok, here's the backstory behind this backstory. I am writing a book (no, it's not on here, it's not even typed. Yet), and this character will come in at some point in time. Personally, I'm thinking in a theoretical second book.
Name:The Watcher. I don't have a really good name yet for this character. Never fear, names are one of my specialities.
Age: Has the mind/maturity of a twenty-year-old, yet is only thirteen.
Race/species: Human. Sorta. Is a type of spirit placed on the earth to help rebalance it. One of the more powerful ones, which means the world is really out of wack.
Hair Color: sandy
Eye Color: mossy green
Skin Tone: a tan that only comes from a lifetime of helping out in the fields.
Height: roughly five six.
Weight: 104- mostly muscle though.
Shoe Size: unknown
Favorite Outfit: loose fitting brown tee shirt (so it can get dirty but still not be too offensive before washday), leather belt, long pants, and sturdy leather shoes.
Family: Mother, father, two older brothers, and a younger sister.
Background: respected farm family in a medium sized town. Old-fashionedish make-believe world.
Where does this character live: town by the name of Webbermill Read more »

Well, the epic finale of, in my opinion, the best series ever written, was certainly epic. But, it left me with a feeling of emptiness. I guess I'll just let the rest of this post explain.
Harry Potter has been a huge part of my life for ten years. I received the first book for my fourth birthday from my godfather. My parents, concerned that the material would be above my reading level, were hesitant to let me read it, but, with my four-year-old charm (a.k.a. constant whining) I eventually managed to obtain the precious 309 pages that would change my life.

He's saying that he trusts me;
I know what I want to believe.
He's saying now I should trust him,
but I will not be deceived.
i guess at the answer; i am correct. I have a flashback of my biological mother telling me about how she sees things. She's crazy.
I guess at the answer: i will become like her. I wonder; will i be correct? I really don't want to be.
My mother, my mother. such untrue words. Since when has she taught me, guided me, helped me? The only real thing she's bothered to help with is booze. Since when has she been a mother? Read more »
The first installment of The Lord of the Rings series, that hallowed entity of the fantasy novel, begins its first chapter unexceptionably (following a rather lengthy prologue on the history of hobbits and the finding of the One Ring). In fact, you would almost expect the first sentence—“When Mr. Bilbo Baggins of Bag End announced that he would shortly be celebrating his eleventy-first birthday with a party of special magnificence, there was much talk and excitement in Hobbiton”—to be in a grammar book giving the example of “Basic Sentence Structure”—but it does not lack promise. To begin with a party, as this story does, simultaneously shows off the nature of the characters, and introduces you to them all at once, so you don’t have to go through dreary chance meetings on the road or at the post office. Tolkien, I noticed, though filling his pages with words, filled just as many hypothetical pages with what he didn’t say, or said halfway and left you to take the rest of the way. For instance, he states very clearly that hobbits never fight, are not violent, and are (almost) always good-natured. And yet as the narration that takes place in the Shire floats on, we learn of Brandybuck hobbits, with their “queer ways,” and the Sackville-Bagginses, the grasping, greedy natures of whom leads other hobbits to duck into hedges when they see them coming. From the beginning, you learn not to take the winding words of Tolkien for granted. Read more »
