Iraq war

The Iraq war started in on march 19 2003. Sadly 4,486 US soldiers died there. Here is a quote from former president Barack Obama about the war in Iraq “Over the last several years, we have consistently taken the fight to terrorists who threaten our country … We’ve done so while bringing more than 140,000 American troops home from Iraq, and drawing down our forces in Afghanistan, where our combat mission will end later this year. Thanks to our military and counter terrorism professionals, America is safer.”

One of the main reasons we went to Iraq was 9/11. On September 11th 2001,  at 8:46 am hijackers of flight 11 crash the plane into the north tower, floors 93 through 99. At that time most people thought it was an accident. Then at 9:03 am flight 175 crashed into the south tower. Then when we thought things couldn’t get any worse at 9:37 am flight 77 crashes into the western facade of the pentagon, killing 125 military and civilian personnel. Then at 9:59 something terrible happens, the south tower collapses. Although the 4th plane flight 93, was hijacked and headed for the white house, the people on board tried to take back the plane it crashed into a field in Pennsylvania, sadly no passengers or crew survived. Then at 10:28 the north tower collapses.

The war was long and bloody. An 8 year war, that was a long war. to give you perspective world war 2 was only 6 years long. the Iraq war was 2 years more than world war 2

persona poem

ghost cat by Samuel Larsen

what is the meaning of life?

what does life mean?

what is the very quintessence of are very existence?

the answer is you

wether you like it or not

it does not matter if your as mean as a angry boss

it does not matter if your as shy as a quiet man

no matter who you are you can make a difference

because you matter like the moon and the waves

like plants and water

you matter, you matter a lot

you poses the greatest power on the earth self belief, if you believe in your self.

if you have that you can do anything

let me rephrase that when you have it you could move mountains

weather its jumping out of a helicopter

traveling the world

or visiting a volcano

climbing the Himalayas

or maybe even fight a shark with a brief case

so what are you waiting for grab your briefcase take on the world

you might even find your ghost cat

remember one thing……

you are the quintessence of LIFE.



4th poem that represents me

Sunset, sunrise;
draw back the curtain like
the moon draws the tides.

The horizon on fire like
rubies in skies.

poem that represents me #3

“Nature” is what we see—
The Hill—the Afternoon—
Squirrel—Eclipse— the Bumble bee—
Nay—Nature is Heaven—
Nature is what we hear—
The Bobolink—the Sea—
Thunder—the Cricket—
Nay—Nature is Harmony—
Nature is what we know—
Yet have no art to say—
So impotent Our Wisdom is
To her Simplicity.

Emily dickinson

1st poem that represents me

To Follow your heart, and intuition,
That should be, your number one mission.
Listen to your inner voice,
Live your life, through your choice.

The point is to love, what you are doing,
Your deepest passions; should be pursuing.
Every moment, live excited,
Every morning, be delighted.

Always look forward, to what is ahead,
Your thoughts and wisdom, gracefully spread.
Living life to the fullest, is up to you,
Look in the mirror, always be true.

by martin dejnicki


the reason i picked this poem is the following. i like the thought of living life to its fullest. one of my favorite movies is based on this kind of thought. and i like how it says “every moment live exited, every morning wake up delighted.”

i am samuel

I Am samuel


I am both witty and smart

I wonder about plants and animals

I hear the birds chirping from the tree tops

I see the the deer running through the valleys

I want successful future

I am samuel


I pretend i am walking through the rain

I feel i feel the rain bouncing off me

I touch the wet trees

I worry a bout are future

I cry when thinking of people who have gone before me

I am samuel


I understand how life goes

I say that life is only as good as you make it

I dream of a bright bright future

I try to work hard in my daily life

I hope that the wars will end, and that people will come together as one

I am samuel
