Mandela vs King!

February21

  I believe that there are many similarities between Mandela and King’s struggles. First, they are both fighting for freedom. In Mandela’s speech he is explaining all the great qualities that we humans have. He refers a lot to hope leading us forward in life. He also speaks about how god created us all with our own little magical spark! In Martin’s speech he was pretty much thriving for better relationships and attitudes between people in our world. They both have very strong feelings about racial justice.

Invictus!

February21

Out of the night that covers me,
Black as the pit from pole to pole,
I thank whatever gods may be
For my unconquerable soul.

In the fell clutch of circumstance
I have not winced nor cried aloud.
Under the bludgeonings of chance
My head is bloody, but unbowed.

Beyond this place of wrath and tears
Looms but the Horror of the shade,
And yet the menace of the years
Finds, and shall find, me unafraid.

It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate:
I am the captain of my soul.

military01

I think people who serve in the army are very heroic!! First, i think they are heroic because they are risking there own lifes for the safety of our nation. Second, i love the army because they dont  give up in hard situations like we do and they’re situations are way worse than ours! I would even consider growing up and joining the army!

Book Review #4

November29

The FBI agents told Olivia and Derek that they could not discuss this with anyone. They also said if people ask you where you went and what the headmaster wanted say that they wanted to know where Mitty had gone.  His parents had taken him out for an early vacation. On the way to class Oliva and Derek decided to go talk to Mitty’s parents. While they were walking, Olivia became very, very emotional. The two kids sat down on a bench and Olivia called the school and told them tahat she and Derek would not be attending school for the rest of the week. When the kids got to Mitty’s apartment Mrs. Blake could not hold herself together. But Mrs. Blake and Olivia were filled with hope and still believed that Mitty was alive out there somewhere.

When Mitty woke up again, he heard a radio coming from a hole where he had pulled a television cable. Soon after a guy in a wool shirt opened the door and threw down a McDonald’s bag with 2 hamburgers, apple pie, fries and frosties. So, Mitty just sat for a day simply thinking. Thinking of all the things he could do.

Thursday and Friday passed. Mitty would get his daily fast food meal. Mitty went to sleep. A very deep sleep and when he woke up the men were in the cellar. They were looking at his body. Then they cried out loud “You will die, and my people will dance in your streets.” This time Mitty was really sick and he was really vomiting. He was also very weak. Soon the men brought him a fold up bed. He was so weak he could not even climb into it. Mitty cried with real tears. But then the jailers lifted Mitty into the bed. As they were doing this he knocked both of them down, the locked the door with all three of them inside.

One of the men pulled out a set of keys but they did not work because Mitty had jammed the lock. Soon the man’s phone rang. Then he told the men that he was faking the dots with coal dust but he actually did have smallpox. Somehow Mitty had let off a poisonous carbon monoxide from the furnace.

Every day since MItty went missing Olivia and Derek would walk the streets hoping that one day Mitty would show up.

MItty was so weak that he could not move anything anymore. He felt people carrying him out of the cellar. The man told him he had smallpox and once again the his people will dance in the streets. Once they had gone back in the cellar Mitty shut the door. It was 15 degrees outside. Using the jailers phone Mitty called 911. Mitty did not get smallpox. Mitty was required to stay in a hospital because of his wounds. His parents told people that Mitty was in a car accident. His partents never left Mitty’s side while he has in the hospital.  Soon Olivia and Derek were allowed to visit.

Book Review #3

November29

Mitty wanted to tell his parents about variola major so bad but he just didn’t have the guts. All he could do was think of the urgent email responses. His mind kept telling him to call the CPC’s phone number but he just could not do that. At two a.m. the next day Mitty walked into his bathroom, peeled off all his clothes and examined himself. No spots, but it was too early anyway.  Mitty felt terrible. If he already had smallpox, he was giving the disease to a ton of others. Also, since he knew he had the symptoms, it would not be an accident. Then Mitty realized he didn’t know where the envelope was. The community would call him a lier and think that I just want to play a joke on the world.  Finally, he noticed he had the wrong book. When he found the right one, there was the envelope! He decided to finally trash the book and envelope. He soaked the book and put it in a trash bag and threw it down the trash shute. Then, in his room, he imagined every possible thing he could do. On his way to school the next day, he did not see anyone who deserved smallpox.  On the way to school he took the way that no people took so that he wouldn’t get anyone else sick. While on his way to school he sat down and wrote a letter to his parents telling them everything that has happened and everything that could happen.

The only thing going through Mitty’s head now is how much easier it would be if he just died. After school Mitty just wanted to get home, but Olivia stopped him. She asked him if he wanted to go to the park. He agreed to go with her even though he was in a horrid mood.  During the walk to the park Olivia mentioned Valentine’s Day.  Mitty, at that moment, strongly disliked the subject.  There was an odd silence and their hands fell to their sides. Olivia stopped walking and started to sob.

On Wednesday, Mitty did not show up for school. Neither did Olivia. That day in English, the headmaster called Derek to the office. When Derek got to the office there were two FBI agents there wanting to know where Mitty was. The FBI said is was not a problem with school. Then they told Derek their names and said Mitty may be in trouble. They also said that Mitty did not go home last night. The school had called Olivia’s house and she actually was sick from crying about Mitty. Soon after Olivia busted into the office.  The FBI asked her questions about the scabs but she did not know about them. The FBI agents let Olivia and Derek read the letter Mitty had left for his parents.

Mitty woke up in a strange atmosphere. He was duct taped to something hard. His shoes were off and there was a banging noise behind him. He also smelled oil and gas. He soon realized he was in a basement alone. Mitty tried to remember where he last was. He was heading home from the park when a British woman had stopped him. Police cars and an ambulance surrounded him. She said she was from the CDC. She refused to get close to Mitty. She wanted him to get into a car. He started to run away, but after half a block he went back to the woman. He imagined he would be getting into the car and driven to the hospital.  Then he remembered walking towards the car and being hit, MUGGED! Then back on the hard surface, he threw up. Soon people came and there was a bright light. They were all wearing face masks and scrubs. The people sat Mitty up. He closed his eyes but when he opened them again he was sitting on a cot six inches off the floor. The men high-fived each other. He used a rusty bathroom and washed his face. The jailer’s watched their prisoners every move.  Then Mitty knocked out both men but they quickly recovered, threw Mitty to the ground and left him locked up. He tried to reach for the door but it was too late. Wednesday was a long day so Mitty got some exercise and danced to his Ipod. Then Mitty realized that the guys were doing exactly what he had wanted, to keep him away from others!

In the fifth chapter Mitty wakes up very tired with insomnia.That morning Olivia gave Mitty ANOTHER smallpox book! He started to read the book and he noticed that he had a smallpox symptom,a soar throat!In English that day Mrs.Abrams finally gave the class their Beowulf tests. Usually Mitty just writes down useless information on tests but this time he was very thorough!In biology Mitty turned in his smallpox report early and the teacher,Mr.Lynch, was very happy with his over achievement!For the rest of class that day Mitty researched smallpox vaccinations.One site said that a company once donated millions of vaccinations for the president to hand out! At the end of class Mitty glanced at Olivia, her face was crusting over as if she was diagnosedwith smallpox even though she did not have the disease! This deadly disease was taking over Mitty Blake’s life! Now every second of every day a reminder was going of in Mitty’s head that screamed “YOU HANDLED SMALLPOX”!

Now Mitty had another symptom for small pox!He could not even get liquids down his throat anymore!When Mitty got home he decided to trash the envelopebut when he got to his room all the antique books were gone!Mitty was shivering!So he looked up rigor, a smallpox symptom and of coarse it meantto shiver!He soon looked to see if there was a small pox hospital any where near him! There was and it was in Rooseveltwhich was only about ten minutes away!He road a tram to the deserted island!There was one road in Roosevelt and at the very end there was a big wire fence with “NO TRESSPASSING” signs all around it!Then he saw an open door and walked on in!Then Mitty noticed that he was not in a horror city but were spider man was filmed!Then his mom called and he took the tram back home to have dinner!Mitty had still not told  anyone about the scabs!It had now been four days since Mitty inhaled the dust and he still had not been vaccinated!!!

In chapter seven Mitty’snight was terrible!He had dreams about smallpox and woke on his bedroom floor like in scary movies.He woke at 9:45 that morning still thinking about smallpox and not even caring that his mom was furious because he was late for school!That day in English Mitty’s teacher was very happy with the fact that Mitty was so intriguedwith his Biology project.That afternoon at lunch Mittyfelt died!He didn’t want to sit with anyone and could care less what anyone hadto say!Soon the symptoms were getting so bad that when Mittytried to swallow the item would just sit in his mouth!That after noon Mitty agreed to go to the girls basket ball game to watch Olivia!Later that day Olivia gave Mitty a book that explained that a while back in China the people would crush up small pox scabs and inhale them and that would not make them sick but make them healthy!Mitty was so happy to where he started singing in the library!That day at the basketball game Mitty kissed Olivia on the lips and thought that he was the luckiest boy in the whole world!

For me chapter 8 of the book hes been the most exiting!The drive to Mitty’s country side getaway was terrible!There was snow and rain every where!That afternoon the whole Blake family watched the girls U Conn basketball game!His family was in the best mood ever and Mitty finally realizedexactly how much he loves his parents!Sunday morning the Blakefamily drove back to their apartment.That night Mitty did some more research on small pox.He learned that the scab sniffing did not work and he actually was infected with smallpox!He was in a horrible mood, like smallpox had sucked all the joy out of his life!One site that that if you got the vaccine before the fourth day you would be okay but it had been a whole week since Mittyinhaled the dust!No vaccine could help Mitty now!That night Mitty could not sleep and he had the strange urge to wash his hands.At three am that day Mitty went on a CDC website.He posted a question that asked if he was the only one who had smallpoxremains?He also told a doctorthat was on the website every thing that had happened to him!He had soon written emails to 3 different infectious disease websites!Mitty now only had a few more safe days till the disease took over his whole body!

All Mitty Blakecould think about was the responses to his emails!Could he even trust the answers?That day at school he didn’t talk to anyone ,not even Olivia!She wondered what was wrong but Mitty just tried to hide his illness!When Mitty checked his email that afternoon he had 27 waiting messages!All the emails pretty much said that they wanted to examine the scabs and meet Mitty.One guy wanted to buy the scabs and another had contacted the FBI!!!

Book Review#1

November27

So far i am enjoying Code Orangeby Caroline Cooney.It is a very interesting book with lots of great spots that make you want to never stop reading!

In the first chapter the book introduces me to Mitty Blake.He attends St. Raphael’s School and enjoys using music as an excuse for not doing his school work.In Mitty’s advanced biology class the teacher has assigned the students a project which involves researching a disease. But Mitty Blake has not even started.When Mitty got out of school he was very eager to get the car. This was because every weekend the Blake’s go on a trip out to the country. So while at his country getaway he started on his project, just to stay in class with his crush, Olivia.Since his mother was a interior decorator and just had to have a stylish room full of books, he went in there and searched for one on diseases.When Mitty was looking through an old book he ran across a envelope that had the word scabs written on the top.He poured what was in the bag into his hands and thay really were scabs! Finally, Mitty has the topic for his book!Because his mom wanted to leave Mitty put the scabs  in the book and threw the book in his back pack.While in the car Mitty found out that VM which was written on the envelope meant variola major.Variola majors only task was to take all the cells of other things!Soon a terrible thought came to Mitty’s head ! Variola major was a very dangerous virus and he had rubbed it all over himself!

In the second chapter Mitty gets back from his countryside getaway and arrives at his comfy Amsterdam apart ment.After Mitty got home from school he decided to go to block buster and buy the book he was supposed to be reading for his English class.When Mitty wa ready to check out the movie man told him that the movie is nothing like the book but of course Mitty buys it anyways.Then Mitty’s friend Derek calls him and ask him if he did his math home work but of course he didn’t.Now Mitty has to do his math,English and work on his biology project!The next morning Mitty is the first one up and goes to school.on the way he grabs a donut to fill his hunger.In English that morning they had a substitute teacher and gladly did not have to work an their book!Instead they went to the library.When they got there Mitty did some work on variola major.One site said that variola major was a smallpox disease but was destroyed decades ago. When Mitty researched small pox it said that every living creature has its own pox. for example monkey pox or cow pox.At lunch Olivia and Mitty talked about how she was researching typhoid and how once there was a cook named Mary who diagnosed many people because she handled the food. She also said that the community locked Mary in an island and Olivia wanted to go visit the island. After lunch the kids went to biology were Mr. Lynch decided to give them 2 extra days to work on the project.When Mitty got home he started on his small pox rough draft.

In chapter 3 an envelope filled with white poison called ricin was sent to the US Senate Office but nobody cared except Olivia.At school that day Olivia asked Mitty if he wanted to go study with her at the Columbia library. Mitty wondered how they would get into the library but Olivia said that they would use her dads card and since we were dressed liked students they would easily blend in. The class had another sub for English and they went to the library again today. Mitty learned that small pox was a disease caused by a living micro organism. After school Olivia and Mitty held hands all the way to the library but once they got in Olivia was no where to be seen.Mitty found a book about small pox that said the disease had no cure and if you were diagnosed there was no reason in living anymore because you would die in about 2 weeks.Soon Mitty realized how fast smallpox starts and that Mitty had not been vaccinated!

In chapter 4 the Blake family all went to the gym.Usually they go out to eat afterwords but Mitty said no because he had to study.With that his parents were so happy they danced all the way to the apartment!When they got home Mitty started writing about a man who found out that if you get cowpox you will never get smallpox.Mitty had to get the disgusting s,allpox disease out of his head so be watche’d TV. But Mitty was just so amazed with the pictures that he had to see them in color! The pictures were TERRIFYING!!The patients had pursing bodies!
