The new generation of children is upon us, in this vastly great area we call home. The question is whether or not children are too protected, and what the implications are for society. I disagree that todayÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s children are too protected. Personally, I think the new generation of children are protected enough. Times may have change since the days of when our parents are younger, but there are even more dangers now that the new generation has to deal with. We have students shooting their classmates. Then we have people listening to the lyrics of some music and emulating what the artist is saying in the lyrics. The children of the past were definitely protected more than the children of today. I remember my mom telling me that if her parents didnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t know one of her friends, that she could not go out with that person. Well these days, I feel parents are being really relaxed with that these days. Continue reading Sample Essay on Children
Literature has a profound affect on societal views. Throughout history women have been susceptible to the influence of written word. Rostand’s Cyrano de Bergerac and Flaubert’s Madame Bovary illustrate how literature has shaped women’s views of how love should exist. “Flaubert depicts the trivial but persuasive ways in which a powerful style of being comes to affect the expectations which the most unremarkable people have of life” (Bersani xiii). Emma’s illusions of love are attributed to the novels and fashion magazines she thrives upon. Roxanne’s love for Christian is fueled by Cyrano’s love letters. Without these mediums, their love is weakened. Each character is dependent on a romantic view of love rather than the truth of reality until it is too late. Roxanne’s reality is that her poetic lover is not Christian, and she has inadvertently fallen for Cyrano. Emma’s reality is that Charles’ love is pure and real but not satisfactory enough for her idealistic needs. Love is a complicated emotion when literature becomes the central underlying force.

Family means love, trust, communication, being together, sharing, understanding, listening, caring and space. My family members consist of my immediate family (my parents, 6 brothers, and 1 sister) and some extended. What makes us a whole is that we all understand what the meaning of family means to us as a family. With such a big family we all understand the roles that need to be played to achieve the meaning of family, for an example you always listen to the family members who are older than you.
As a multigenerational family there are differences in authority and responsibility. The older you are in my family the more authority and responsibility you have, but in my family you also have to earn it. The social system is very unique and similar to my families system. We as a family communicate with each other very well about different things, but there’s a stronger bond between us kids. Continue reading Sample Essay on Family
Affirmative action is an issue closely related to cultural diversity. It affects the entire employed and unemployed population of the United States. Affirmative action continues to demonstrate that it causes more harm than good. Affirmative action was created to eliminate discrimination in the workplace. Instead, it has created reverse discrimination and caused more problems than it has resolved. It has also caused a great deal more qualified personnel to be replaced by less qualified minority workers. This creates internal strife, lower efficiency in the workplace, and increased racial hostility. It is the intent of this paper to show the effects of reverse discrimination, legal issues and regulations related to reform, and alternatives to Affirmative action.

Anorexia is an illness. It is a form of eating disorder. People who suffer from anorexia lose significant weight by starving themselves, so much so that their weight falls way below ideal.

The issue of abortion is a very tender subject here in the United States: some consider it murder and others claim it is only for the best. According to M. LeRoy Sprang and Mark G. Neerhof abortion after the twenty weeks of gestation is and will always be murder. However, David A. Grimes protests that abortions late in pregnancy are for the better welfare of the mother and child, if the circumstances comply. Thus there are a variety of views on the issue of abortion.
To begin with, M. LeRoy Sprang and Mark G. Neerhof claim the abortion of a baby after the twenty week gestation period is not only dangerous for the fetus but also for the mother. Through a recent census it has been proven that that D&X is neither safest nor necessary for late abortions. In fact this census caused the D&X procedure to be ban in 28 states and Congress agreed to consider the ban. Continue reading Sample Essay on Abortion
