I feel this semester, only the first of many I will endure, was a successful one. The objective of the course was to make us better writers, and I certainly have improved. I learned what makes a paper good or bad, what makes it easier to write a good paper, and how the manner that the class is held makes a difference.

Hopeful Encounter Word Count: 2680 Hopeful Encounter The sun was setting. Far to the east, threatening black clouds arose from the fumes of pollution from the several smoke stacks towering over the city. The streets were pock marked and dented with the recent shower of acid rain. Hot boiling steam from the sewers made the temperature of day much hotter than it really was. Just outside the borders of the city is a lake covered with muck and crude oil spills. Death and despair floated aimlessly o

Morality and Legality of Abortion
Morality and Legality of Abortion Morality and Legality of Abortion Somewhere amidst the abortion debates of the last quarter century, the real issue has been lost. The focus has become too religious for a country that has separated church and state. Therefore, I won\'t argue the religious rights and wrongs of abortion.
