- Adoptive V Birth Parents Legal Rights - 938 words
Adoptive V. Birth Parents' Legal Rights Adoptive v. Birth Parents' Rights This issue hits home with me, I am adopted. I believe that a child's parents are the people who raise them and take care of them. I do not believe that birth parents have any rights to their children after the child has been adopted and living with their adoptive parents. The biological parents made a decision when they put the child up for adoption, for whatever the reason may have been. Just because they feel that their lives are more stable and together does not give them the right to rip a child from the only parents that child knows. By doing this the biological parents destroy not only the life of the child but a ...

- Hate Language In Rap Music - 1,458 words
Hate Language in Rap Music In a recent survey of Americans, 75% reported believing that exposure to violence in popular music, television shows, and movies, inspires young people to act aggressively (Lacayo, 1995; Smith et al., 2000). The consumption of media containing heterosexist and homophobic languages, by young adults and children, harbors aggression and sexual confusion.

The constant exposure to hateful lyrics found in some of todays most popular music desensitizes the young to vio ...

It was wonderful to be able to see just how she fit into the story and what her relationship was with Almah Mari, previously known to me as "The Virgin Mary". This book put into perspective the goddess side and helped me to und ...
