- Ben Franklin And William Bradford - 503 words
Ben Franklin And William Bradford Although William Bradford and Ben Franklin lived 100 years apart from one another, they share at least one common theme: each man adhered to and dedicated himself to a particular system of belief.

- Execution Of Juveniles - 1,382 words
Execution Of Juveniles Adult Punishment and Juvenile Justice Day after day in this country there is a debate going on about the death penalty and whether we as people have the right to decide the fate of another persons life.
