SUCCESS MAKES YOU WANT TO ACHIEVE EVEN THE MORE. FAILURE IS A SET BACK THAT GETS YOU NO WHERE IN ANYTHING YOU TRY TO DO.
Give an example of a time when you or someone you know refused to
give up and was rewarded for his/her persistence.
I RECALL A TIME WHEN I WAS PERUSING TO BECOME A HOME OWNER. I HAD TO STAY PERSISTENCE IN EVERYTHING THAT HAD TO BE DONE. THIS IS BECOMING SUCCESSFUL AT WHAT YOU ARE DOING. THERE WAS BUMPS IN THE ROAD HOWEVER I MAINTAINED. IF I HAD GIVEN UP I WOULD HAVE FAILED AND NEVER REACHED A PROMISING GOAL. ONE KEY NOTE IN MY MIND THAT I MEDITATED ON WAS:” PERSISTENCE DOES NOT NO FAILURE”.
I BELIEVE THE WORLD HAS BEEN ON PINS AND NEEDLES AND HAS TRIED TO TIGHTEN UP ON SECURITY . HOWEVER THERE ARE THINGS THAT STILL HAPPEN THAT PEOPLE ARE NEVER GOING TO BE FULLY AWARE OF. I ALSO BELIEVE TEN YEARS LATER TECHNOLOGY HAS UPGRADED ITSELF EVEN MORE POWERFUL TO KEEP UP WITH THINGS TO COME. WE WILL NEVER BE TO CAUTIOUS OF OUR SURROUNDINGS WORLD WIDE. THESE ARE JUST HE SIGNS OF TIMES THAT THESE THINGS SHALL COME THAT HAS BEEN WRITTEN IN THE HOLY BIBLE FOR THOSE THAT BELIEVE. WE ARE STILL HEADED FOR MORE TO COME WORSE THEN 9/11.
THE WIZARD OF OZ
THIS MOVIE HAD A GREAT IMPRESSION ON ME BECAUSE IT SHOWED OBSTACLES THAT DORTHY BEGAN TO FACE. AS SHE BEGAN TO GO ON HER JOURNEY SHE THOUGHT SHE WAS ALONE AND SHE REALLY WASN’T . EVERYONE SAW THEY ALL WERE IN A GREAT NEED AND ACTUALLY BECAME BENEFICIAL TO ONE ANOTHER AND HELPED EACH OTHER AS THEY FACED DIFFERENT OBSTACLES. THIS MOVIE WAS VERY FAMILY ORIENTED AND IT CAUSED HER TO APPRECIATE LIFE AND HER FAMILY EVEN MORE. SHE STAYED PERSISTENT, POSITIVE AND STRONG EVEN AT WHAT APPEARED TO BE HER WEAKNESS POINTS HER GOALS UNTIL SHE ACCOMPLISHED WHAT SHE SET OUT TO DO.
We were all affected in many ways by the tragic events of Sept. 11, 2001. Now, ten years later, how do you think not only the United States but also the world has changed in the last decade as a result of that day?
I BELEIVE THE UNITED STATES TOOK A DEVASTATING TURN AFTER THIS STRAGEDY OF 9/11….. I HAD NOT REALIZE IT HAD BEEN 10 YEARS EXACTLY….. THIS IS SOMETHING THAT HAS EFFECTED PEOPLE ALL OVER THE WORLD. PEOPLE HAVE LOST LOVE ONES AND FAMILY MEMBERS AND HAVE TRIED TO MOVE ON. THIS WILL BE REMINDED FOR A LIFE TIME. THE UNITED STATES , HOWEVER IS JUST MORE IN A FINANCIAL DEFICIT AND REALLY HAVE OTHER CONCERNS AS TIME GOES ON.

Prepare for safety and make sure my children are safe. Stock up on food and water. Have an emergancy plan of evacuation.
How common are earthquakes in NC?
Earthquakes are really not common. I dont recall of any earthquakes just the hurricans.
When was the last one recorded in our state?
Oct. 26 , 2009
How do you feel about the “tremors” we felt August 23 and your own preparedness (or lack of) in the event of a major earthquake
How serious do you feel the threat of a nuclear disaster might be here in our own country?
I feel that having a nuclear attack on our country would be very serious being that The United States is a very popular country and a lot of peoples lives would be destroyed.
Do you think the media or government might be downplaying the seriousness of the situation in order to avoid causing panic?
I totally agree because if the world or our own country realized and knew exactly what the government knows about things that are confidential, then we would all go into a panic. So therefore, I do believe the media or government is downplaying the seriousness of the situation to avoid causing panic only to help their country out as a whole.
Do these types of situations make you more uneasy considering the recent nuclear fallout in Japan?
Yes, because we would not know what to expect.
Discuss your own position and thoughts, and why you feel the way you do.
I feel that we should be more aware so we will know how to handle our families lives and be prepared in case of an attack.
