Forever With You

PROLOGUE I never knew life could be this cruel. I never knew it would all end up like this. Life is so unfair. And I started to dwell on that fact. Why would he have to be the one? A tear fell from my eye. No! This can’t be happening! I knew at an instant that our battle is over. I broke into a run outside the hospital and as soon as I was out, the crisp of the cold night air engulfed me. I screamed at the top of my lungs as a blinding flash of light struck my eyes. I saw a glimpse of a shiny black Volvo: the very same car that started all these misery. It’s the car of death: the one that almost killed me and my beloved. Instead of sprawling away from the road, I smiled unwarily as the loud tire screeches filled the silence of the night. I was sent flying over board as the bone shattering impact met my build. This must be what dying feels like. And if this is true love, we’ll see each other again.
His words echoed in my mind. I fell on the road feeling the cold asphalt on my skin and that’s when I closed my eyes . . . forever.

Chapter 1
Moving
“Sehun-ah!” A booming voice awoke me from my trance. “You coming or not? The car’s waiting. Ppalli.” I mumbled something to myself as I caught a final glimpse on my window. Why do we even have to leave this house? The weather’s so good it’s a shame for me for not being able to enjoy it. Sigh. Screw this moving-somewhere-else idea. It would be fun skiing - without falling on the water of course – while watching girls clad in bikinis. Don’t get me wrong. I’m not a pervert. Well, somehow. But this is not about me. It’s about this moving-somewhere-else thingy. It’s really getting on my nerve. “Yah, Oh Mija!” Arrgh. That was most probably my she-thinks-she’s-so-cool sister. “Yah, Oh HaYoung! How many times do I have to tell you not to call me by that nickname! You know I hate…...

...Forever 21: Dealing with America’s Fear of Aging and Death Margaret Kimble Developmental Psychology 210 Liberty University Abstract Mankind has tried to cheat aging and death by freezing their remains, cosmetic surgery or marrying outside their generation hoping to stay young. However, these attempts are futile and Americans cannot hold back the clock or trick death. The clock is ticking and when it stops I will die and so will you no one knows when. Although there is a great deal of research on aging and death, no one has discovered how to halt the inevitable. It is a scientific and biblical fact that human beings will age and die. All life ends in death. This paper will cover some of the issues regarding, fear of death, and fear of aging. It will also explore if Americans fear death and aging because we have no control over it or we don’t understand it. Fear of aging can be attributed the fear of our health failing; losing our memory, independence and the energy for living our lives to the fullest (Berger, 2001). Fear of death can be attributed to not being able to speak to someone who is still experiencing it. Many fear growing older because of the onslaught of mental deterioration such as dementia and Alzheimer’s disease; which are attributed to old age. (Philipchalk, 1994). Fear of aging and death is caused by America’s negative concept; it is the natural progression of life. In Strongman’s research he found that a dominant aspect of aging is......

Changed Forever

...Changed Forever For years, I have wanted to visit the Oklahoma City National Memorial and Museum. My youngest son had been there and was immensely touched by this. Therefore, I determined this assignment would be the perfect opportunity for me to visit and in turn write about it. Immediately, in all honesty, I understood that this memorial and museum was a dedication of peace and hope that will change you forever. The museum is a place of amazing transformation that offers a unique insight of the events that took place on April 19, 1995. As you enter the museum, the first item you see is a huge wall that states, “Just like communities everywhere, it is the start of a day like any other day”, but as you proceed, the story of that day is revealed gallery by gallery showing you that it was not an ordinary day. As you approach the end of the third floor, which is where the tour begins, you are greeted by Gus, an elderly man, probably in his early seventies and full of knowledge of the events that took place that day. He explains that we are about to hear an actual audio recording of a water board hearing that was held across the street from the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building on the morning of the bombing. Our group, roughly 20 people, is ushered into a room where the audio is playing, approximately two minutes into the hearing; you hear a loud explosion followed by panicked shouting as the faces of the 168 victims killed that day are displayed on the......

...FOREVER Si Jack ay isang simpleng tao na may simpleng pangarap sa buhay ang makahanap ng babaeng mamahalin nya at mamahalin sya habang buhay. “NGSB”, No Girlfriend Since Birth, sumpa daw para kay Jack, hindi nya alam kung bakit sa lahat ng babaeng niligawan nya ay wala kahit isa ang sumagot sa kanya.

Forever Gold

...Forever Gold As I sit here, and reflect on the poem “Nothing Gold Can Stay" by Robert Frost, one story comes to my mind. On one particular afternoon, my family had decided to go to Prairie Winds Park, for a little adventure. When we arrived, my older brother had asked me if I wanted to ride a bicycle down the hill that the park had. Now, keep in mind that this hill is very large, almost perpendicular to the ground and covered in rocks and bumps. I, being the naïve girl that I was, didn’t even hesitate to say yes, or to think of all the injuries the trip down the hill on the bicycle could give me. And so, my older brother and I both settled on the bicycle ready to go downhill. The bicycle was clearly meant for one person so I sat on the metal frame in between the seat and the handlebars. We landed on the ground with the front wheels hitting the ground first and the back wheels still in the air. All the while, I was screaming my head off. The slight brush with death sent a chill down my spine. When I finally decided to open my eyes, I realized that both my older brother and I were safe. I was oh, so thankful. But even with the scare that I had had a little part of me wanted to do it all over again. So, we did. We continued, and each time, it was much more exhilarating. After about the third time, a person patrolling the park stopped our fun, and informed us about the many rules that we apparently were breaking.......

...Top Five": Sweden, Denmark, Netherlands, Finland andNorway, as found in a study by EF Education First.[3][4] Effective Business Writing Tips for Professionals by Sharif Khan © 2008 Effective business writing skills can help you win that million dollar contract, earn a promotion, resolve a dispute, or generate a significant increase in new business leads. Poor business writing, on the other hand, can never be undone; it can cause you to lose business to your competition and even cost you your job. Here are 11 easy ways you can improve your business writing skills: 1. Before you write a word of copy, make sure you know who your target audience is and what specific result you'd like to achieve. If it's an important business communication, take five minutes to visualize yourself in the shoes of the recipient and imagine what this person's world is like. What does their typical day look like? What are their unique needs, goals, and challenges? What problem is keeping them up at night? The more thought and research you invest in understanding your target audience and how you can help them, the more powerful and effective your business writing communications will become. 2. Avoid using your company acronyms and buzzwords. While they might seem cute and clever to you, it's very annoying to a busy executive who has a pile of documents and proposals to read. Avoid using academic language like 'ergo,' 'henceforth,' or 'so to speak,' and as a general rule of thumb avoid use of technical......

What specific consumers were targeted? Did competitive factors play a role? When was it launched and how long did it run? Who were the key players/strategists/agencies involved? * During the time of this diamond campaign, there was a diamond rush going on in South Africa. Every diamond company raced over to start mining in South Africa. Cecil Rhodes had bought land from brothers Johannes Nicholas and Diederik Arnoldus de Beer. On March 12, 1888, De Beers Consolidated Mines Ltd. Was formed and the empire began to spread throughout Europe. Sir Ernest Oppenhiemer grew tremendous interest in the company and ended up establishing the Diamond Trading Co. in Kimberly, South Africa and London, England. Harry Oppenheimer was on the board of De Beer’s company. He took a trip to the United States to test a pilot marketing campaign but ended up with this full-fledged advertising campaign that has been successful ever since (Posnock, 2006). * In 1931, through the mist of The Great Depression and later World War 2, diamond competitors were emerging such as Gemological Institute of America (GIA), The Diamond’s Dealer Club of New York, and Diamond Manufacturers and Importers Association (Posnock, 2006). * Russia found diamond mines that were similar to the ones found in South Africa, so they became a crucial......

...Forever 21: Dealing with America’s fear of aging and death Abstract This paper is about confronting America’s fear of the issues of aging and death. Over the years, American culture has grown uncomfortable with matters of growing old and death. The basis of this thinking is rooted in the mind and influenced by society. There is an ever increasing desire that’s rampant across our nation to remain young. This can be seen in the media, marketing for different products from makeup to apparel. Americans want to remain young for as long as they possibly can. In 1984, the band Alphaville came out with the song “Forever Young” to express America’s heart cry. However, aging and death is a part of life and a direct result of the fall of man. Aging and death were not the original condition of humanity, rather punishment that resulted from rebellion against God’s commandment. This paper examines why there is aging and death, America’s response to it, and a solution to rightly mature in the process. Since long ago America’s heart cry has been to stay young forever. In 1984, the band Alphaville came out with the song “Forever Young” to communicate the nation’s desire. In cities across the country and around every turn, materialism is vocalizing the longing for youth everlasting. This constant struggle with “wants” versus “reality” has left individuals searching for ways to cope. In addition, the lifespan of human beings was not always an average of eighty years. One thing to take into...

Living Forever

...How would you like to have to blow out 198 candles?... “Aging isn’t inevitable; it’s a disease and scientists can cure it.” People everywhere have been craving the thought of being immortal since the beginning of time. With the help of genius minds and modern technology, men and women don’t have to face the tragic infliction of aging. As time progresses, people don’t just to look younger, they want to feel younger. So the question is; Is it a good thing to be immortal? I say yes. Being Immortal is a curse. The loneliness would be unalienable, and resources extinct. The value of life would decrease due to growth in population, causing crime to increase. First, loneliness would be vivid and depression uncontrollable due to the constant death of family and friends. Personally, I know what it feels like to lose someone that meaning so much about, and I think that it would be more than awful to bury generations of loved ones. I agree that advancing in age will enable ones ability to interact with future generations that they wouldn’t they wouldn’t have been capable to before the advancement of technology. Trumping the chance to meet decades of people, is the loneliness of death. Furthermore, once the new technology to keep people imortal the planet earth would be in jeopardy. To date the world population is right over 7.2 billion people, and considered over populated. When the advancements in technology to to assist the population by erasing their......

Goodbyes Are Not Forever

...GOODBYES ARE NOT FOREVER I never thought I could get this attached to my classmates, so attached that I have mixed feelings as we graduate. I am happy for I know how much we’ve waited for this. I have felt our excitement for it vibrated throughout our classroom as we started with our countdown. I know that we’re happy because of the new freedom close at hand, a new challenge which perhaps tingle our spine from time to time. Yes, graduation has offered us a different kind of happiness. Yet, I’m sad deep within for I know that after this, we’ll go on our separate ways, living our separate lives. I have this creeping feeling we’ll barely see each other from now on. Hey! You’ll be pursuing your dreams and I’ll be pursuing mine. I’ll be forgetting my dear classmates for a while as I daringly take hold of a new chapter in my life, and I guess they’ll do the same too. You know, “forget the buried woes and dead despairs for there’s a brand new trial right at hand.” And then, as we settle down in our new “nest”, we’ll start remembering each other, and all shall be coming back – the laughters, the tears, the jokes, the songs – every little moment I have shared with them. But for now, I have to move on. I have to search for my rightful place in “the circle of life.” Then, though fate may separate us, I hope that sometime, somewhere, we’ll meet again. I shall look forward to that day when I can embrace you and we shall talk, laugh, cry......

You would see it on your classrooms, in your surroundings and most probably, in the internet. It has been in a surveys in number of polls. It has been trending on twitter with the hashtag #Forever. But first of all, what really is, 'Forever'? So this word has a very wide scope of meanings. It could be forever in existence of life, a thing and of course, in LOVE. According to my Dictionary, forever means lasting, permanent, continually and for always. Scientifically saying, we can already conclude that FOREVER is a big lie. Of course no one could stay forever. I just want to share the quote I know: 'The only permanent thing in this world is change', meaning there is no such thing as constant and consistent. All people will die. All things are being depreciated until they are lost in time. The people you are meeting, the friends you have, the relatives you got and you, yourself will be vanished from this world. The iPhone you are using, the condominium you are in, the luxuries you are enjoying will also be gone. Even Earth will die approxiamately 10 million years from now. But have you ever been curious about how some things manage to be alive until now? Like the names, Einstein, Newton, Charles Darwin, Plato, Thales, etc.,. They lived for like thousands of years ago but until now,......
