My favorite exploration that i wrote about is Exploration 3 which was Murtin Luther King Junior's speech. it was response to Dr Kings speech the mountian top. This speech was full of informational and guardians. He tells the sanitation workers the way out of sruggle. Dr King particularly emphasis the idea of working as community or a group to achieve gradeness. This idea is very crucial in today's world wether is boycotting the government to distribute the wealth equally, to bring justice back or to improve the lives of the personals within the community. As we learn from history, the great change was brought by group of people with grade leader, not one particular person. The message gets through when it co-exists within group of people. in today's world we can apply this when we writing petitions to the government to have centain changes done. it requires group of people with the same stance. last but not least another way it works would be if the community gets together with common goal to achieve safe and secure neighborhood. they can build recreation center, parts and soccer fields to integrate the community.

The first time I saw my mother I thought I was dreaming, it felt surreal. I tried to wake myself from what thought was a deep dream, but it was real. Until my mom spoke to me, I didn’t believe my own eyes. “Son are you okay”, were the first thing my mother said to me when she saw my stunted look, I still remember those four words she said to me, mother came up to me and hugged me so tight, It brought back memories of how she sang me songs of lullaby with her soft soothing voice, and how she told me bedtime stories until I fell asleep. Seeing her just for split second and receiving a hug from her felt like I was nine years old all over again. Just remembering my mother’s hugs makes me feel better after a long day.
After arriving at my destination, I collected my luggage and headed towards my mother, and then she began crying. It was really sad seeing her cry even thought that was tears of joy. Those tears made her eyes sparkle and more beautiful than what I remember them to be, I tried not to cry but I couldn’t hold it anymore, so I cried for the first time from the joy an blessing of seeing my mother once again, but actually it was not that bad at all, and crying made me feel better.
here a link to the video .im kind of having trouble uploading the video in to the blog.
Overall I thought the documentary was really good and inspiring. What I really liked about Rafe's teaching style the money system I thought that was really cool idea. The whole money system was really cool because he taught his children the sense of financial responsibility. His children learned the value of a dollar. Another thing I liked was how he taught the children music because he knew statistically children who play music usually play get good grades as well. One last thing I like was the field trips that he took the kids too. The reason I liked is because of his choice location and types and foods he gave the children. What I mean by this is he took him to 5 star hotels and restaurants because according to him “I want to show the children what they are working for” and I completely agree with him. What can be learned about his habits is that the way Rafe taught he showed the children to think for themselves and to be independent. One specific goal I have for next year is I want to start studying more and the way I want to do it is to set aside some time to study and to not procrastinate.
