Description

This is a description I wrote for English Class. I hope, it gives away the right connotation: majesty. 

The road to Monterrey extends for miles and miles, until it disappears into the skirts of the great mountains that look upon anything that roams earth with kingly superiority. The Sierra Madre Oriental lines the orange horizon. Because of its height, it appears to be close, but after an hour of travel, it still sits far away. The plains that stand below, at the mercy of the mountains, extend as wings from the road. As guards, dark slender trees with spiny heads stand scattered along the plain among the golden grass. The sun, already hidden from sight, seems to have set the plains beyond on smokeless fire. The flames dissolve into a blue that darkens with altitude until, at last, disappears in the blanket of clouds. And the sky, which carries the flag, crowns the mountains in their glory.

Current Event (rather late...)

Current Event 6

    From <http://www.foxnews.com/world/2017/04/07/us-missiles-target-syria-airfield-in-response-to-chemical-weapons-attack.html>
       The U.S.A. reacted to the Syrian chemical weapons attacks upon civilians.  As a warning, fifty-nine Tomahawk missiles hit a Syrian airbase at 8:45 Eastern times (3:45 a.m. Friday in Syria).  This attack was the first direct assault on the Damascus Government since 2011.  President Donald Trump stated that this base was the staging point for the chemical weapons attack that killed seventy-two people.  Trump never had the intention of intervening into the Syrian civil war, yet photos of deceased children, killed in the attack, seemed to have changed his mind
“It is in the vital national security interest of the United States to prevent and deter the spread and use of deadly chemical weapons," President Donald Trump said in a statement. "Tonight I call on all civilized nations to join us in seeking to end the slaughter and b…

Why Education?

For all the young people out there,

Wrestling with math? Bored with History? Succumbing under Grammar?
I Understand.

I've been there.

And  I had this question: How will Geometry/ Calculus help me as an adult? What if I never became an engineer or a scientist?

You might think I'm crazy but, here's the thing: Algebra is teaching us more than a(b+c) = ab +ac. Really.

Math is  teaching us to think. My guess is that most of us will probably never use all of those complicated equations... But with Geometry, we are learning to think deductively. We can train our mind to learn. To fix our attention. Learn what we need for life.
Learn from the circumstances and from the people around us.

This brings me to "boring" history. I personally love history, it is my favorite subject. But it is more than "In 1492 Columbus sailed the ocean blue". We are looking at men's and women's lives. Their successes and mistakes. We can learn from those mistakes, and not mak…

Current Event 5: Mosul Discovery

From: http://www.foxnews.com/science/2017/03/06/biblical-kings-palace-uncovered-beneath-shrine-destroyed-by-isis.html>
          In Mosul, Archeologists uncovered the palace of Assyrian King Sennacherib. The palace lay under the Tomb of Jonah, which dates back to 600 B.C. The tomb was destroyed by Islamic State militants in 2014. ISIS has dug tunnels below it in search of artifacts to plunder.   The existence of the remnants of an Assyrian palace below the shrine has been known since the nineteenth century.           “Iraqi excavations in the 1950s revealed an entrance to an Assyrian royal arsenal and in 1990 a large Assyrian building to the east of the mosque guarded by colossal human-headed winged bulls was excavated, but this work came to an end with the Iraq/Kuwait war,” said Dr. Paul Collins, Chair of The British Institute for the Study of Iraq, which currently works with the Iraqi State Board of Antiquities and Heritage and UNESCO for the protection of Iraq’s cult…

Current Event: Life in Outer Space?

From <http://www.foxnews.com/weather/2017/02/22/7-earth-sized-planets-discovered-orbiting-nearby-star-could-harbor-liquid-water/>
On February 22, NASA announced the discovery of a new system: seven planets orbiting a star. This star is called TRAPPIST-1 and is 39 light-years away. All of the planets are earth-sized. Scientists believe they may contain liquid water. “This discovery could be a significant piece in the puzzle of finding habitable environments, places that are conducive to life,” said Thomas Zurbuchen, associate administrator of the agency’s Science Mission Directorate in Washington. “Answering the question, ‘are we alone?’ is a top science priority and finding so many planets like these for the first time in the habitable zone is a remarkable step forward toward that goal.”           Nevertheless, these planets would be hard to explore because they are far away, indeed. The spacecraft that reached Pluto, New Horizons, would take 800,000 years to reach TRAPPIST-1. The…

A Thought of Today

So... here we are, watching as the world goes from bad to worse. One more day, here we are, living in a cursed earth, witnessing that the nature of man never, never changes.
 And no matter what, we as humans can never change that nature. Because since Adam and Eve sinned, every single human being has been born with a sinful nature. I think Romans chapter 1 gives a clear description of it. 
And ... "Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools." (Rom.1:12.)
"And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;" (Rom 1:28). 

But thank God for his gift of freedom from sin! 


Just a thought for my brothers and sisters in Christ!
