Motivation Poster

Teamwork is very important. Without it, no one could succeed. Teamworks means using the help offered by others. Whether its working on getting a group project done, or getting the winning point, teamwork is very important. Teamwork is working together so all can succeed. With teamwork, all will succeed. Teamwork happens all the time in the movie. Everyone works together in the movie to get up the mountain. there where many times when someone would fall down and everyone would stop and help them get back up and keep on going. It relates to me because on my volleyball team, we had to set up the ball so someone could get a good kill. The whole team has to work together to get the point. In basketball, there is a lot of passing between the players in order to get the shot.

Freedom Essay

     What Is Freedom? 
“I’m proud to be an American, were at least I know I’m free.” What do you think about when you hear the word freedom? When I think of American freedom, I think of the definition, what Martin Luther King had to say about all Americans having equal freedom, and what fallen soldiers have scarified to keep our freedom.
What does Freedom mean? To me, freedom is having the right to stand up for what you believe in. Being able to walk to school without having to worry about getting shot. To go to what church you want to. Freedom isn't just a word. Freedom is a privilege. Freedom has so much meaning that no matter how well someone describes it, there will always be more.
When I think of Martin Luther King, I think of two things. Equal rights, and equal freedom.
Martin Luther fought for American freedom. Maybe not in a war, but he fought just like any other soldier would. He fought for everyone to have equal freedom, so everyone could achieve the American dream that they came here for.
Fallen Soldiers are very important when it comes to American freedom. They represent the price of of freedom. Freedom is not free. Every Soldier was scared either physically or mentally. All soldiers are important and deserve to be thanked. Soldiers, dead and alive alike, are all important to American Freedom because if they didn't fight for us, we wouldn't have our freedom.

The meaning, Martin Luther King, and Fallen Soldiers are all a big part of understanding Freedom. Just remember that freedom is not free, there is a price. That price is paid with courageous men and women who fought for our rights and freedom. So, I challenge you to tell any service member of the military, Thank you for your service. “And I’ll gladly stand up, next to you to defend her still today. Because there isn’t a doubt I love this land, God bless the USA.”
