Revolution and War

There are times revolution or war may be needed to change things. There are 2 different types of revolutions, peaceful and violent. Some examples of peaceful revolutions are the Computer and Internet revolution. The American Revolution is an example of violent conflict. I’m sure we all heard of World War 2 and it’s an example of a war.

First of all, computers changed the society. You can digitalize all kinds of information. You can store information; for example photos, books, PDF files, and lots more, you can communicate using Skype and other websites with people in different countries. Also you can make an online company with out buying land or a physical store. Many people use computers to shop, to go on Amazon.com or Wal-Mart. The Internet revolution is another example. We use the Internet a lot so we can research, communicate with others, to share information, and to play games.

Second of all the American Revolution is an example of a violent revolution. In the beginning America was apart of the British Empire then at the end America was an independent nation. The war started when the king of England made the taxes too high and the colonists didn’t like it. So they quit paying their taxes. The king of England sent an army to make the colonist pay the taxes, and then there was a revolution. After the revolution there was a new country, the United States of America.

Finally another way to change society or culture is war. In the beginning of World War 2 the colonial empires (France and Britain) were the powerhouses. During the war the axis powers (Japan, Germany, and Italy) were trying to establish their own empires. Despite winning France and Britain were surpassed by the rise of the super powers. Britain still had its navy, but a new class of world power was formed by America and Russia.

In conclusion revolution and war have been use to change cultural and society and may be needed. The American Revolution and World War 2 are some examples. For society to change something dramatic has to happen other wise, why change? Normally it’s something like armed conflict or a disaster. When diplomacy fails, force prevails. That is why revolution and may be needed to change things.

I’m From

I’m from America,
I stand as a proud American citizen,
I’m from the warn sweet aroma
As my grandma bakes cookies.
sweet and fluffy as cotton-candy,
And the stuffed brown bear my older brother
Gave to me many years ago,
The bear’s softness,
A thousand feathers.

I’m from the doorways of the Church
Where I was baptized,
To my favorite picture book when I was 3,
From the fairytale stories and history
My dad read to me, as I lay in bed.

I’m from bones, muscles, and blood,
From growing up and learning,
To being more mature.
I’m from everyday experiences
From which lessons come forth to teach me.

I’m from the adventures
heroes and heroines go forth,
Using the courage they have
To solve problems
big and small.
I’m from the brush strokes on canvas
That makes beautiful images full of feeling,
I’m from the tumbling blocks that
Were lined and stacked in marvelous ways
To create original buildings

I’m from my mistakes
I’m proud to say,
They make me better stronger, smarter and well …
Me
Some are embarrassing,
Others I’m like, “Why in the world did I do that?”
That was so stupid of me!
And from my mistakes and
My past experiences
grows wisdom.

I’m from me
