Rome vs USA

"Look at our Government! A mere hollow shell! It has no moral fiber! Content with its luxury, indolence, and profligacy, its extravagant pageants in honor of its silly gods; ruled by an insane dotard and a drunken nonentity!...Rome is doomed! I do not venture to predict when or how Nemesis will arrive-but it is on its way. The Roman Empire is too weak and wicked to survive!" (Chapter 1, page 20)

I read this passage in the book, The Robe, which by the way I highly recommend, and it struck me how similar it was to to America. For those of you who don't about this book, it is based on Centurion Marcellus who crucified Jesus, and his conversion to Christianity. It was made into a motion picture (which my family owns), but, as always, the book rules! It is truly sad how the United States is so like the crumbling Rome and is threatened to fully collapse under our possible, immoral, candidate for President, Barack Obama. We must pray! We must pray hard for the upcoming elections, and that the God would spare the USA from what it deserves for its wickedness.

A Poem

* Once Upon A Time... *

Once upon a time,
To be pregnant out of wedlock was to be a disgrace.

Once upon a time,
Couples got married to bring forth children.

Once upon a time,
Children were thought of as blessings and gifts from God.

Once upon a time,
“Spare the rod, spoil the child” was taken seriously.

Once upon a time,
Parents knew better than the child.

Once upon a time,
People worked on their land instead of their computer.

Once upon a time,
Religion wasn’t forbidden in school.

Once upon a time,
Seniors were respected for the very fact that they were old.

Once upon a time,
Your elders’ advice was valued.

Once upon a time,
To be gay was to be happy.

Once upon a time,
The majority of the US was not liberal.

Once upon a time,
Modesty was the fashion.

Once upon a time,
The US was close to God.

-Yours truly
Please tell me what you think and if you have any suggestions. Thanks!

Thank you one and all!

Wow! Thank you sooooo much Turner, Gibbs, and Swann!!! I had already seen Gibb's and Swann's posts on my birthday (Saturday), but I never even suspected one from you, Turner! Haha! I came on this morning and was confronted with this post I had never seen before! Thank you so much for making my birthday a memorable one. And in answer to that one picture, yes I made a wish before I blew out the candles. I wished that.......HA!, you think I am going to tell you?! Then it wouldn't come true! To my pirate buddies who I have not yet mentioned, Captain Teague and Anna Marie, a hearty thank you to you too; and thank you Claire for your happy birthday post to me. : )

Well, in regards to now being 18 years old......I don't feel any different. The only thing is that now I can vote (for McCain!), I am the only one who can retrieve my medical records, I can finally learn how to drive, and I can get a job without needing a work permit.

Uh, oh. Mom just told me it's time to start school. Well, farwell and thank you once again pirate buddies for making my birthday such a fun and memorable one!

Literature Poem

When I was in 10th grade I had this assignment for Roman Literature: Create your own myth, including the theme of transformation. Be as creative as possible, while still adhering to the rules of organization and grammar.
I love writing poems (even though they aren't that good), so naturally I was thrilled. Let me know what you think of it!

The Cheetah’s Legend

Along the coast of Africa
Their lived a man of speed.
He entered all contests of swiftness,
In these he won the laurel wreath.

God of speed was Mercury true,
Twas he that gave this mortal his pace.
A gift from a god to him
That had a freckled face.

The young man became full of pride,
He knew the power he possessed to run around the world.
Mercury came to warn him of this danger,
Lest Jove become angered, and sweep away his precious pearl.

The youth was not affected by the news,
He just laughed the laugh of arrogance.
He boldly asked his benefactor,
“Would you like to try the globe’s circumference?”

Mercury accepted the challenge,
Out of anger and fury.
They departed to prepare for the day,
The boy had set the date without a care or worry.

The day arrived fresh and new,
They lined up at the start:
Mercury with his feet of wings
And the youth speedy as a dart.

As Triton blew his horn from off shore,
The two were off and out of sight.
They kept close together for a time,
But ahead the mortal began to creep, much to his delight.

The race completed,
The victor was pleased.
He bragged to all who were near,
But anger had Mercury seized.

With his caduceus in hand,
He raised his hand above,
To strike the youth
With the hardest shove.

Before he could strike,
His hand was held firm.
Apollo had arrived with a message from Jove,
“Don’t kill but change.”

With this said Apollo handed over sacred berries
Used only by the gods in time of need.
So squeezing them out over the youth’s head,
Mercury chanted the words for change with speed.

The man began to crouch to the ground,
His limbs did shorten and his form lengthens.
One facile feature he was allowed to keep,
His freckles spread down to his feet.

He was banished to the open field,
Having to search for a decent meal.
However, the youth, now surnamed Cheetah,
Will still be the fastest, now and forever.

The End.
