Civil Disobedience

What common denominators do they share?
They share that we don't agree with it.  It's change that we don't like so we won't let it happen.
Effected day to day. Closing doors and keeping us here.

What relationship do they create between the government and the individual?
It comes off as really bad because the change that we want we don't like.

Where did you draw the line for yourself?
I drew it when it became grounded and the sit in and the walk outs.

From Thoreu's.
The only obligation which I have a right to assume, is to do at any time what I think right... " I feel that this stands out to me because you can always make the fun decision even if its the decision that nobody else goes with but you think is right you should go for it.

He thinks that you can do what you want to a certain extent. You are able to make your own decisions and stand up for what is right

From Martin Luther King
... there are two types of laws: there are just there are unjust laws. I would agree with Saint Augustine that "An unjust law is no law at all" If someone disagrees with you then they think that you are bad person even though you are not.

I feel that it is the unjust law because people who break the law usually don't have a lot of respect.

Civil Disobedience- It means that you are disagreeing but not hurting anybody.
The protests around the elections.

How do you define essential? It means to stay alive and you could live without them. You can unplug and you don't feel like you need it all the time. Can't be replaced by something simpler.

What is essential to Suelo? It is essential to him to take what is given to him. He looks to see how he can make the world better.

What is deliberate about his life style? He is showing people that you can live without money and be just fine. He wanted to be living the lifestyle he is living.

We must learn to reawaken and keep ourselves awake. - We need to take ourselves out of comfort zone and do something that we want to do but are afraid to try. To leave everything we know behind and go do something else.

Simplify, simplify. - We need to really enjoy what we are given and not what we want. We shouldn't complain about what we have.

Overgrown establishment - We live in big houses, go to big schools. We don't need all of that all we need to have a family that lives with you.

Nature

 
To go into solitude. This is a picture that was taken this summer at camp. We were in Rocky Mountain National Park. We were all just tired and some people were exploring and I just sat down and thought about my life. I am someone who goes so fast and so full speed ahead that I needed time to think. I loved being able to look and see the snow on the mountains and the sun reflecting off the snow.


This a picture of the eagle on the mountain and I think that is a really cool because I feel that it shows how lucky we are to live in this world. The greatest delight which the fields and woods minister.  I love that we get to see so many neat things when we unplug and not have to worry about anything.

Self- Reliance Relflection

To believe your own thought, to believe that what is true for you in your private heart is true for all men,- that is genius.  I feel that you need to believe in yourself and you can achieve great things. If you have depression or anxiety or anything like that you can find a way. Find something that you enjoy doing and go after it that is all that really matters.  

What I must do is all that concerns me, not what the people think. I feel that this one is very powerful to me because I don't take time to think about myself as much as I should. I am focused on what I can do for other people not myself. Being strong for them in a there time of need. When I am in a time of need I hate being the center of attention.  

Nothing can bring you peace but yourself. I feel that you need to be able help yourself to help other people. You need to find your peace before you can help other people find theirs. Your health and your life comes first. You need to take care of yourself. You need to find the right balance for you. For me it is helping other people and making them feel happy and then I am happy.

Summer

Summer of 2014 you have been a great treat. From the start of summer getting to relax to meeting new teenagers at the weight and conditioning. I got an iPhone. I went on a trip to see my cousin crawl and be fascinated by textures. To a high school reunion for my parents meeting a lot of different kids real fun, we went zip lining and white water rafting also. Helping out the community by doing buddy reading, Science Camp.

Thanks for a great summer 2014.
