On August 29, 2005 my town and family was devastated by Hurricane Katrina. We lost everything to the mighty flood waters of the storm. There was no food or water for days because the supplies we had bought before the storm were destroyed or contaminated. There was no power for weeks and my family...Tags:
First time out of the country and I was petrified. My parents weren't accompanying me, I had no idea how to fill out the customs form (what is a customs form anyway??), I was bound to forget to take my malaria pills, and a third-world country seemed all too daunting for a little 17 year old girl...Tags:
It hit fast, and it hit hard. The people of Louisiana didn’t know what to do. They couldn’t escape, and they couldn’t get out. The people's worst night mare was coming alive before their very eyes. What am I talking about? I am speaking up about one of the world’s most devastating natural disasters...
Hi. I'm Morgan Jones. I'm a Senior at the Community School in Sun Valley, Idaho. This Spring I, and my fellow peers, will embark on our individually designed Senior Projects.

Over my Spring break this year, my Mom planned a vacation for herself, my Dad, and me. The trip was a cruise around the Caribbean. We left on our adventure on Easter Day, March 23, 2008, and little did I know, this trip was not only going to be fun, but also give me a new outlook on life...Tags:
I think I was more excited about my parents’ 25th anniversary than they were. We were going to Cancun! I had never been out of the country before, and I was determined to make that change for the better. I cut my hair and presented my most winning smile to the passport photographer, which of...Tags:
I never expected Iceland to be so beautiful. It almost felt alien, in fact, with endless plains of gray rocks with a dusting of green moss extending far into the distance. A perpetually gray sky loomed overhead, starkly contrasting to the usually blue skies of my Colorado home. I could scarcely...Tags:
I’m pretty sure that everyone, young or old, has a memorable vacation spot that he or she visited as a child. For me it’s St. George Island, specifically the Beach House called Cut Bait that my uncle owned. I know a lot of people who have been to St. George, but I...Tags:
