Holocaust survivor- Thomas Blatt

Thomas Blat, born in 1927 in Izbica is one of many very interesting Holocaust survivors. He was one of the few people who actually escaped from Sobibor, A German Concentration Camp. He was a writer previous to the holocaust. After escaping, he we'nt on to writer the book From The Ashes of Sobibor. It was all about his experience at the camp. In this book he actually interviewed a guard from the camp where he was. He walso speaks about his escape during it. It talks about his betrayl by the farmer that was helping to hide him. During this he got shot in the jaw, and the bullet is still there. Thanks to his escape, Thomas Blatt is still alive living in California and in Poland.

Brandon's Freewrite JOURNAL!!!METAL!!!!

Lo and behold. This is a sad tale... the finale, of my wonderful story, spanning over many journals... let us begin... one last time...

The taco man was destroyed by the revelation. Silently, Jeff thought to himself, " Evil Cap'n Crunch is evil... because his first name is evil!?", Jeff suddenly wished he had a LEXICON because he didn't know what 'evil' meant. After waiting for exactly ten minutes and fifty eight seconds, Evil Cap was extremely irritated. "Im evil and evil people are impatient! You dare bring light into my lair! YOU MUST DIE! I don't wait no time for no one!", he said while charging up his dethly dethray of dethly dethlyness. "Wait!" said Jeff, ecstatic at his EPIPHANY. What is it snloser?"(a combination of snooze and loser/ a mixture of the key words in the phrase 'you snooze you lose'/ a great word that was invinted around 11:38). "You said you're evil, because evil is your first name?", said Jeff, "So?", said the harvester of fifty eight souls. "So... you waited patiently for ten minutes while I tried to think of exactly eleven words(too bad it wasnt fifty eight or eighty five) words... and yet you said that you were evil so you were impatient... you proved yourself wrong(HYPOCRITE!). So, if you change your first name to something else... maybe you wont be evil anymore... because I know... deep down... there's goodness hidden in your heart...". "Well I... I guess I never really thought of it that way..."

And so... Evil Cap'n Crunch did as Jeff said, and changed his name to Eugene "Dance Machine" Crunch, and there was piece in Taco Bell.

Until the invintion of the value meal.

"We move in circles
Balanced all the while
On a gleaming razor's edge

A perfect sphere
Colliding with our fate
This story ends where it began"

The Begining.~ Brandon Turner

Michaels & denise' Journal Cycle 13

This weekend was pretty fun-packed. All I did was hang out. I went and saw Shutter Island friday night. It was probabbly the coolest movie ive seen in a while. I still have no idea what actually happened in the movie. Saturday night, I went to Bath County to a friends house and hung out until Sunday.

Does anyone wonder why the sky is blue or how come the wind blows side ways instead of down? i do all the time, i search and search but never find anything. The beautiful earth is still a mystery to me even after 16 years of a wonderful life and i assume that it will remain a mystery until i die. the wind blows so gently through my window and i hear the cold chill whisper "spring." Soon flowers will start arising and the cold chill will turn to a much warmer more loveing blow. each with it's own surprise and relactant smell, telling me not to worry; but beware; cause i can never tell.

Holocaust Editorial

I'm Angela Hamilton and I'm writing about how some people believe the holocaust never happend. The Holocaust denial happend started as a German and French theory, but then later spread on to Americans. Many people believed that the holocaust never occured. They dont understand how so many people could be murdered and yet half the world not know about it. My opinion is that it did happen. Yes, many people did die and hitler did go undected. There is many ways to lie to your country inorder to kill people. There is so many records to prove that it did and survivers. The suggestion to solve this problem of denial is to tell people to do their research. Otherwise there is no otherway to solve this problem. Some people dont want to believe it because their anecestors was involved in the murders.

Remodeling Walmart
Since 1962 Walmart stores all around amercia have grown to be one of the leading stores. Mount Sterling, Walmart seems to be the only store worth going into if you're looking to buy produce.

For two years the customers of Walmart have known where everything was and how to get there from any direction. But, in March 2010, all that will change. Walmart is going to start remodeling the entire store. What does this mean? It means that the aisles will be moved to new locations around the store. The question that as people curious is, "Is this change good or bad?"

Walmart employee Debbie Sparks says that the change will be good for the store because change is completely for the needs of the customers. But she also believes that the customers will have a difficult time finding the new locations of the items.

In March, what will the customers think? Will they except the new change? Or will they hate it?

What Brandon got for Christmas

You know what I got for Christmas?

A card that had a fake hundred dollar bill in it with a letter that said "Santa didn't come this year son."

Just kidding. That's what I'm going to give my kid, if I ever have one.

I got a $499.99 Yamaha Keyboard for $224.99 at guitar center with a Sustain pedal, And I also got a 32 Gigabyte 3rd Generation iPod touch. And I must say, I never cared about iPods until Jordan Rudess(Keyboardist of Dream Theater) showed me the whole reason I got mine, the Bebot Synth app.

I was definetely not dissapointed with my iPod touch. Apple now has my utmost respect. It plays all my music, anime, strongbad E-mails, and its also the best web browser I've ever seen. I can watch youtube, e-mail and screen capture. Its the best thing I own.

But with my iPod touch I also bought the Bebot app I so desperately wanted. I always played the keyboard, as I thought it was the funnest musical instrument, but Bebot proved to me that the continuum is the funnest.I always wanted a Continuum, and those are very hard to come by. With an amazing $1.99 price on iTunes, anyone who owns an iPod touch or iPhone should pick the Bebot Synth up.

I also got about 200 dollars and bought WiFi. Sadly my internet shut off about 3 days later... Thanks alot AT&T, You made me waste about 80 bucks.

Best Christmas ever? Maybe.(This was really the only cool thing I could think of to post...)

Be true to you

Be true to you
Dont doubt yourself
It's not bad to be like
"Paranormal Activity was a total piece of crap"

Dont lie to you
Sometimes yourself is the only person you can talk to
sometimes you is the only person you can trust

Be yourself
Because being yourself means your not them
And when your them, you arent yourself
And when your not yourself, your not you
Your a liar to yourself

So when your true to you, your true to yourself
So you dont have to worry what others say
Because your not talking to them when your talking, being true, to you
You dont have to worry about the consequences of talking
You can say
"im a terrorist"
And not worry
If you said that to someone else,
You better run for all its worth
Because your being true to someone thats not you
-Brandon Turner

Dont lie, Stay fly
Be true to you
Dont care what they say
do it your way
Life isnt about impressing others.
Or worrying what they say about your mothers
Be true to you
Like nationwide,
Its impossible when you have you on your side
Be true to you
-Angie Hamilton

I am the truth
I wonder why others arent like me

I hear lies always being told
I see the truth and only the truth
I want for people to be truthful
I am the truth

I pretend theres actually truthful people left
I feel like everyone is lying
I worry if ill ever be used again
I cry over my underusage
I am the truth

I understand why people dont use me
I say others actually want the trulth
I try to change people
I hope someone actually changes
I am the truth
- Michael Hatton

When life gets too dificult
Be true to yourself
Be true to you
When the lemons arent so fresh
Be true to yourself
Be true to you
When you hurt
Be true to yourself
Be true to you
When the wound wont heal
Be true to yourself
Be true to you
When your faith has shattered
Be true to yourself, Be true to you
When heartbreak becomes familiar
Be true to yourself
Be true to you
Be true
Stay true
-Haley Bellamy

You can be you
Can be no one else
Be true to you
Not how they felt
You are yourself
So be true
Even if your a little elf
at least your you
Cant lie to you
or hide in the mirror
just be true
as it creeps nearer
you are in every place
at the same time
So be true to your face
and dont lie
dont discurage you
small little me
be true
and in time you'll see
you are inseperateable
so treat yourself well
You have to life with that girl
get back up when you fell
Be true to your eye
for all is you
Im saying dont you dare lie
come on just be true.

You see everything we look at on your screen
You want to be useful
You are a Dell and run on Windows xp

You pretend to be a Mac because God knows they are better
You feel like you always do... you werent programmed to feel otherwise
You touch the sockets in the wall with your extension cables
You cry when the Mac commercials appear on television

You say the horrible things we make you say in Microsoft Max or Anna's voice
You dream of being a Mac and we've already covered why
You try to be as useful as possible
You hope you are useful
You are a Dell and run on Windows xp
