The Temple of Apollo

Last year, I was at the foot of the Temple of Apollo celebrating the 11th birthday of my son. Many people from all countries, speaking many languages, and practicing many religions spontaneously broke into song and sang "Happy Birthday" to him, and wished us well. This showed me that people can meet together to celebrate children and their hopes for the future. One book, Three Cups of Tea, by Greg Mortenson and David Oliver Relin is another example of this told in such depth that you are carried into the oldest of places and made to feel the hope all teachers have for educating youth. Education is the key. Below, students chose articles that are important to them and tell you why...

  1. The article I picked is called Porn suspect in Bay Area. It is about this guy called John Mark Karr. this man exonerated in the slaying of JonBenet Ramsey after creating an international sensation by claiming he was responsible for her death. Investigators searched two homes in Petaluma and found five pornographic photographs of children in his computer. I choice this article because I need to know where the killers or rapes are at to know that I'm safe.

  5. In last weeks San Jose Mercury Newspaper there was an article that stood out to me. The article was about a young man in Los Angeles that was shot to death by an immigrant gang member. The parents of this young man tried to get a law passed in Los Angeles consisting of arresting all illegal aliens to are or appear to be in gangs, gang members or affiliated. I think that this should happen if they are a history of violence or drugs.

  6. My article is President Schwarzenegger its from 2003.It was in the San Francisco chronicle. The article is about if they should let non native citizens to be presidents. I believe they shouldn't let them be presidents because you don't know if they'll help there native country with money and weapons and so on.The only reason may be if they are born close to the us not like in Europe Asia. I don't think the citizens will vote for someone thats Arab because they'll think he's a terrorist.

  7. My article was about a 17-year-old boy that got shot in a Muni bus during a fight among several teenagers.A kid shot two shoots and one hit the 17-year-old boy.He is now fighting to stay alive.It says that the 17-year-old boy wasn't part of the fight.It does not says that they got the teenager that shot the 17-year-old boy but I hope That the cop do get hem.I don't no why They don't check the school bus because to many teenagers have all ready shot many persons during school time or when they are going to school.

  8. A 19 year old man was stabbed to death because of a parking spot in San Francisco. The guys friend was saving a spot for him at the club when a van pulled in to the spot. A bunch of guys got out of the van and started fighting with the friend. The 19 year got out of his car and joined the fight and got stabbed.I think this is stupid. People are still fighting over dumb reasons.

  9. The name of the article that i chose was ROOMATE HELD IN MAN'S STABBING DEATH. The insisdent was last month and the story was in the San Francisco Chronicle. So what basically happened was that a 50 year-old man stabbed a 52 year-old man several times in a care home. The two men were roomates and the fifty year old man got mad because the other guy didn't give him shirt back even thought he was suppost to give him back his money in exchange for his shirt. I think that this is NOT a good thing. The reason why I care about this is because people are going crazier and crazier every day. Everybody is killing people for the most unnecessary reasons. I think that people should stop and think about things before they do them.

  10. The news that I heard was that My teacher Mr. Tsui my safety Ed teacher told use that he heard people talking about a dad that got killed in the morning around six o' clock but he was hearing it in the radio. what had happen was that three African American got mad because someone cut them in front of them. So what they decide to do is shoot the guy for cutting them off in the freeway about six in the morning. what happen after they shoot the drive there where two or one kid in the car and talk in the radio saying that they killed there father and they saw how he was bleeding. The most important thing that i ask myself is that. Are they going to find the killers? because they don't even know their car number and who it was. They just know that it was three African American.

  11. I saw In the local news how a guy was beating his wife because she didn't have the food ready when he came from work and this made the guy get really mad so what he did was beat her and then stab her with a kitchen knife. I really worry about this because this is not normal and it might it happened to some close to me I worry about what can happen next.

  12. On the abc news's web what I have read so far, that in Baltimore some students brutally attacks a teacher. A student had captured it in a cell phone. This had happen today. I think this is not good. Also, there had to be a reason on why the students attacked the teacher, beacuse I mean there is always a reason on why it happens. I care because its important in what is happening to the world and how kids are being to vitolate.

  14. I read on the news about avoid being stranded at the airport. The thing that happen is that more than 3,000 flights were canceled for the safety inspections the thing that went wrong was the air travel system so all the people had to spend the night in the airport. I think is bad that all the people that wanted to take a airplane had to spend the night there until everything was fixed .

    doctors determined that if a baby borns before tie the only thing can help them is breast milk.

  18. On wednesday a man who was driving on 280 in San Francisco with his two boys, suddenly a white car pulled up to the man and shot him to death. One guy said that the reason they may have done the drive by is because he cut the other guy off. His two sons were really scared, but there was a driver who had seen it all. They are saying that there were three black males in the car, but the driver was the one who shot him. His two sons were okay but the dad was hopeless. This is very important to me because there are many men out there who have angry problems and they can handle themselves.

  19. The articles I choose was airplane flights. Avoid Being stranded at the Airport, April 11 abcnews. Travelers all across the country had to face this week when American Airlines canceled more than 3000 flights for safety inspectors. If i were in their shoes i would have been patient and not give the airlines people such a tough day.
