Shakespeare in Modern Day


Shakespeare is probably one the greatest, well-known writers that produced a lot of literary works varying in different styles and subjects. With all of his work, you can see a lot of modern stories and some tales base their concepts or ideas around Shakespeare’s work. Shakespeare also has a great influence on how the English language is spoken and written because he did create words and phrases that are used even if don’t realize it.

In some films, they had remade numerous variations of Romeo and Juliet into modern time even though the language period is slightly different and put into how today’s society culture is. Even books after Shakespeare surround aspects of Shakespeare.  Although the generations are changing and so is the culture, society, and even some normalities.

Shakespeare’s work is also relatable to aspects of life. It can be relatable aspects about living life, love, happiness, sorrow, death, adventure, culture, and so much more.

Patriotism


Patriotism is defined as the quality of being patriotic, vigorous support of one’s country.

Patriotism has become a popular topic recently or at least in the American culture, it is. A lot of the older generations are used to people standing with one arm across the chest and having head wear off during the Pledge of Allegiance and/or National Anthem. 

But in recent times, people have been sitting out, kneeling, burning the national flag, making unpatriotic remarks, and so on and so forth. 

But, some questions remains..

  1. What makes someone against/for something in their country?
  2. What might make someone not like/like the country they are currently in?
  3. What is the backstory behind all these patriotic/unpatriotic things?
  4. What constitutes as patriotic/unpatriotic in one’s country?

Thoughts of Las Vegas Massacre 2017


US History

May all those who lost their lives may rest in peace
May the proper actions take place afterwards

~10PM, Sunday, October 1st, 2017, Route 91 Harvest Festival, Las Vegas, Nevada, USA

SourcesABCNews,CNN, Washington Post,

What seemed like the typical festival going on in the Las Vegas strip and everyone having a good time and enjoying a concert until one moment: non-stop bullets was shooting into the Route 91 Harvest Site from the 29th Floor of the Mandalay Bay Hotel from the corning block. During this festival, there were hundreds of attendees. There are at least 59 people killed and 527 injured, currently confirmed and could possibly rise.

The suspect is a 64-year-old, white, Mequite, Nevada resident Stephen Paddock who stayed at the Mandalay Bay Hotel during the time of the event that had brought the numerous (23) firearms (pistols, handguns, and rifles) and an ingredient used in explosives (room and car) mostly found in his room. At this point in time, the motive is unclear. They also found 3 cameras, 2 in the hallways outside his room, and 1 looking through the door. After this happening, he had taken his own life. It is believed that he acted alone.

According to CNN, Paddocks brain was autopsied and there was “no abnormalities.”

Las Vegas Shooting Gofundme

Thoughts

I think this a saddening and horrific moment in American history and will ever remain to be a part of the dark histories that will always be remembered. We will not forget this event like past similar events. I know in American culture, people like their weaponry and right to bear arms but will this or future events like this change the way things will change in the distant future? Will it change to where other countries are doing?

I wonder the backstory and why this person decide to do this act? Did something go wrong or did he have some sort of mental breakdown?

Questions

  1. How could this ever happen?
  2. How could this guy get so many weaponry into a hotel?
  3. What kind of security or security policies does this hotel have?
  4. What is the motives?
  5. What is the shooters background?
  6. Was this an act of terrorism?
    1. Terrorism is defined as any act that can cause terror amongst a group of people in an certain area.
  7. Was there more than one shooter?
  8. Will this affect the way we have the right to bear arms?
  9. Will the right to bear arms change or be more restrictive?
  10. How will history or culture change for the better?

A Look into the Unknown


There are many things in this world that cannot be explained or yet explored. Yet, the sciences and math probabilities are able to explain some of the things going on but not all. Could it explain what is in the deepest depths of the ocean, what about the strange space, earth, and human anomalies, why we can't explain cold cases or missing person cases that are never reopened, what happens when something or someone goes through a black hole in space (hypothetically speaking), and etc? There's so many questions left to be answered.

It's an exploration race of knowledge beyond our capabilities which we are slowly learning more about and who knows what point of time it will take us to get there. It seems like there are a lot of dark subjects that haven't been shown the light of day and dedication to be worked into so we know the Earth and Space more and what we are capable of. It seems like there maybe a lot of curious minded people who are wondering about what the future holds and the mysteries and tales of the past, present and future.

What will the future hold? Will we discover what lies in the parts unknown and the tales of our own planet?

Lost Time Forgotten

It seems as time goes on we sometimes forget about what we leave behind. Somethings we remember as well as somethings well forgetful. How can that be?

Somethings we remember because it maybe traumatic that may affected so many lives. Examples of remembrance would be like some extreme acts of Mother Nature and wars9-11,  Berlin Wall, Pearl Harbor, Chernobyl and the Concentration Camps.

    Some things we tend to forget or leave behind. What about the abandoned land, property, businesses, homes, and other types of property and could it become in use? What about the events throughout history? What about the asylums? What about those who live in poverty? What about those who don’t have access to everyday needs? Did (insert event/promise/help/etc here) ever happen or is going to happen? It seems like we tend to forget those things that may have a dark history to it. A dark history when there was experimentations going on, maybe some inhuman things, or even the turn-of-the-century was changing.

The questions are:
How can we bring back what is forgotten?
Is the forgotten gone for a purpose or accidental reasoning?
Is the forgotten gone because we just “forgotten” about it?
How could we just “forget” what is just forgotten?
Could we have done things differently?
Should we just leave history be history?
Could we change the future history for the better?
And so many more to ask…………………………………………..

Trans-Allegheny Lunatic Asylum Visual Presentation


Trans-Allegheny Lunatic Asylum, Weston, West Virginia

The Asylum is second largest hand carved stone structure in the world compared to the largest is the Kremlin in Moscow, Russia.

You may wonder what types of history belongs inside. You may imagine back when it was in use, it may have had a dark past. From various treatments and medications to overpopulation of patients and other variables.

Stigmas…


There are stigmas. Stigmas can include careers, jobs, schools, race, religion, ethnicity, country, illnesses, and so on and so forth to just about anything you can think of.

Stigmas can feel as though it may hold us back at times and sometimes it doesn’t. Why? It maybe as though the occurrences and reoccurrences throughout the history of the world.

Stigmas can be tiring. Tiring because it may ruin chances of relationships, future job/ school goals, and not being able to live life to the fullest. Not all stigmas are tiring and depressing. Some people want to fight to stop the stigmas and change the way others think.

Can we change stigmas? Yes, we can! All that we need to do is change our mindset and be more open minded. The world is always changing, maybe for the better.  People are wanting their own life to be an overall happiness and wellness to be better for the future. People are tired of all the stigmas and would need your help and understanding about their situation on the willingness to change or needing of help for the better.

The question is how much are you willing to take in order to stop the stigmas?
