    How Fasting Change Me.

    How Fasting Change Me.

    When losing weight, fasting was my go to practice and thanks to this i made it 110 lbs. But what I didn't know was the negative effects that this practice has in a women body. Even though this practice is different for many people and my experience might be different from others, at the end of the day it is about how we feel most comfortable. Many might have a different experience from mine and remember that everyone's body is different and my experience might be different from others.

    Pain.

    Pain.

    Winter just came, the leaves start falling, the trees start changing colors and so do our feelings. Feeling lonely when she was around people that loved her. One year and three months ago she took the worst decision of her life. One year and three months ago her name was called, she followed the nurse, to a white room with two other girls there. One of the girls was crying , she did not know if it was pain or regret. The second girls seem nervous but calm at the same time. After observing the two girls in the room she was infected with something in her arm. Five minutes later she felt chills down her spine, pain in her abdomen and that's when she knew that was the beginning of her painful journey.There were only three girls in the room and the more they waited more was the pain.One by one were been called and then she was left in the room to wait for the worst. She was called, she knew what was about to come was going to mark her for the rest of her life but she still went thru. She was brought to one room where she was asked to remove her closed, they followed her by asking if she was in pain to which she replied with a nod. She was brought to one small white room. The only thing that she could do when she saw the utensils was to cry. The nurse asks her to lie down which she did. She was told to count to 20 till she fell asleep. She counted one she heard one of the doctors say “what are you doing that every girl that you bring me has been crying”. Two she asked Jesus for forgiveness before she broke down crying one again. Three she heard the song “rolling in the deep”, the anestesia did its work. Nurses were talking and girls were crying out of pain all around the floor. Next thing she knew she was awakened by the worst pain that she was ever felt. One nurse came up to her applying one hot bag in her stomach, making the pain worse. The nurse told her that it was ok and not to cry but she kept crying. The nurse applied the bag once again and the pain came with blood but she was told that it was normal and that it was going to keep bleeding for a couple of days. Still in painShe was asked to change and to take some pills for the pain. When she went out of the clinic, the only thing that she did was cry not out of pain but out of regret. On their way home he asked her if she was ok, she did not say a word but cry, and he knew it wasn't from the pain. When they got home she could not get out of the car because of the pain and when she did she discover that she was bleeding once again. He helped her get out of the car and when she went inside their home she changed and sat on the bed and cried. Days went by and they were growing apart they could not hold the pain. A woman and her newborn child move to the apartment just above them. The first night that the child cried she was awake hearing the baby cry and broke her heart and she couldn't keep it anymore and she cried herself to sleep that night. He was on the other side of the bed hearing her cry broke his heart but he knew that she was strong. Without knowing they both cry themselves to sleep that night. He tries getting close with her because he knew what was kicking her inside. He had promised himself to not make her cry again. One day he came back from work and saw her just sitting in the bed with red eyes. That is when he broke down in front of her and told her and told her that if he could go back and change things he would. Some people think that having a abortion is a easy choice but for her it wasn’t, when pregnant she had fainted more than one. The second time that she fainted she was brought to the hospital where her dreams were crushed. She was told that they could not find the baby's heartbeat, she refused to believe it; she asked for other doctors' opinions but it was the same. She had to make a decision; They argued for hours on what to do next, he did not want her and she did not want to lose the baby but she knew that she had to make a decision and she did. She knew that she was young and that in the future with a much better health and stress free she could bear a child. He promised her to give a child after three years and she accepted. It was hard for them to trust in each other. But love is stronger than pain.

    Open Immigration.

    Open Immigration.

    In 1492 Christofer Columbus “ discovered” what he called “The new world”, in other words Christofer Columbus immigrated to what is now the united states and claimed the land for Spain taking this land from the Native Americans. Nowadays people immigrate to the United States not to take something away from the people that live here but to find a better life, that they can not get in their countries. These people struggle even harder when they are not accepted but discriminated against and humiliated. Open immigration might scare some citizens because they think that immigrant people just come to this country to take and not to give. Agriculture, health care and technology are areas where immigrants have been beneficial.

    The Crux of Language

    The Crux of Language

    Language and correctness not only obstruct our relationships and how we communicate but has already shaped our future. Do we really want a future where sympathy doesn’t count! “Why “illegal immigrant” is a slur” by Charles Garcia, “Why you shouldn’t be politically correct” by Anna Munsey-Kano and “Do you think the poor are lazy” by Anat Shenker-Osorio. The authors reflect on how political correctness, language and brought up words affect our society.

    Through the years our communities and our people have been affected by the use of drugs. Many people have become addicted to opioids because most of these drugs are being prescribed by our doctors. Health professionals know that most drugs that they create are highly addictive but they still sell them.

Opioids crisis have affected many communities, People that have been affected are trying to help others, and law makers are finally trying to help those who are drug addicts and their families.

     Obama's Immigration Speech.

    Obama's Immigration Speech.

    Every country in the world experiences immigration, but The United States of America experiences the highest rates of immigrants. Even though this country was built on the backs of slaves and immigrants, citizens “ fears “ that immigrants would come and take resources from them. Illegal immigrants help to contribute to the economy of this country taking jobs that citizens find degrading. Obama’s immigration speech clarifies how the new immigration reform would help the Border Patrol, how it would help those immigrants that contribute to this country, and how this new reform does not apply to people who might come to this country in the future.
