Dear Maggie, I am writing this letter to thank you and Momma for allowing Hakim and I to visit the both of you back home. Also thank Momma for the delicious food, and for making Hakim and I feel so welcomed. It was great to go back home after so many years and to see the both of you guys are doing great. Maggie, I also wanted to tell you that I have done a lot of thinking after the visit. I deeply apologize for the way I have acted towards you and Momma, and I was wrong. I apologize not just for my recent visit, but for everything that has happened in the past. I know I have never been the best daughter or sister but there is no excuse for my actions. It bothers me that you’re my only sister and we have never been close. I feel horrible for the lack of communication between us, and how I only wrote to Momma twice in four years. Ever since I left home to get an education and start a new life, I wanted to forget where I came from as much as I could. I couldn’t stand living the way we did and I wanted to break out of that cycle, which was the reason of the name change. I was ashamed of who I was and where I came from, which is wrong. I know I cannot get all of the time back that we did not spend together but I wish I can make that all up. I hope you and Momma can forgive me and maybe for my next visit we can start over again. Sincerely Dee…...

Dear Diary

...Dear Diary, Wherefore is this happening? How did this happen? And why is this happening to me? Do I really deserve this? Is this some punishment for something I’ve done? Is it because my name is Hero? Dear Lord tell me why. I’ve been sitting here for hours just thinking about yesterday. It seems like every time I do think about it my heart shatters even more as tears run down my face like two never ending rivers. While I sit, I ask God over and over what did I do to deserve this. But of course there is no answer or reply. There are a couple of things that really hurt me yesterday and I mean REALLY!!! I was so hurt when Claudio said I as in me cheated on him when I know I did no such thing. Doesn’t he know how much I love him? Then another thing is my father; how could he say those things? How could he want to kill or disown me like that? He says he’s ashamed of me but after hearing what he said it is I who is ashamed of him. He should believe me because I’ve never done anything to sway his trust in me. I’ve been a loyal and faithful daughter. But the good things about this situation are that the Friar, Beatrice, and Benedick believe me. For this I am most thankful because it shows me who I can really trust. Now, there’s a plan for me to play dead so that Claudio can feel guilty for ‘killing’ me. The thing is even if I am madly and undeniably in love with him will I be able to forgive him easily. I feel the same towards my father will I forgive him easily...

Dear Nurses

...Dear Nurses, Currently, health care systems are undergoing a complete transformation to help better accommodate patients by providing them with affordable high quality care. These transformations are a direct result of The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010 (PPACA), which includes several provisions to intertwine cost effective care with quality. Health cares current arrangement is fragmented, lacking individual responsibility for the coordination and quality of patient care. By designing inducements for integrated care delivery models and disbursing funds for coordination and quality care, the law is attempting to restore health cares resource allocation while rewarding quality of care over volume of care. Consequently, nurses must become adjusted to the reorganized health care system because they are intricate part patient care and outcomes, as well as being fundamental to the attainment of emerging patient-care delivery models (ANA, 2010). The purpose of the this letter is to explain how the practice of nursing is expected to shift and to also discuss the concepts of continuum of care, accountable care organizations (ACO’s) medical homes, nurse-managed health care clinics (NMHCs). PPACA recognizes the potential leader role for the advance practice registered nurse (APRN) in new integrated care systems, and as an important contributor of primary care services. An ACO is collaboration among various health care professions who assume joint......

Dear Friend

...Dear Friend, Those are some very good questions that you asked. I will help you to understand these issues. When looking for information the way you assess your information is very important. If you find some information and it is not reliable you end up putting information in your paper that is false and could lead to an incomplete on your grade. By knowing how to find out if the information is reliable may be hard for some so I have provided ways that I use to find out if information is credible and reliable. Some of the ways that I use to find out if the information is true or if it is false is by looking into the references that they provide on the site. By doing this I am able to go looking at the information that they used can go farther back and what information is new information. When I look for reliable sources I will see about the abstract and find out if it is on the line of what I am looking for and if the abstract is nowhere near what I am looking for I will bypass the link and move on to the next. I also look to see if it is .gov, .net, .org, .edu, etc. This gives me more information as though it is a trusted and reliable source. When you are having troubles about whether a source is reliable look in to the references that are provided and see where they got there information and that will help you out as well. The references are usually at the end of the article but also can be in the beginning of the article. The term digital divide is the difference......

...Maggie – Stephen Crane Naturalism “ fulfilling destiny ” 1.When a child, playing and fighting with gamins in the street,dirt disguised her.  Attired in tatters and grime, she went unseen. There came a time, however, when the young men of the vicinity said: "Dat Johnson goil is a puty good looker."  About this period her brother remarked to her: "Mag, I'll tell yeh dis!  See? Yeh've edder got teh go teh hell or go teh work!"  Whereupon she went to work, having the feminine aversion of going to hell. By a chance, she got a position in an establishment where they made collars and cuffs. 2.Maggie observed Pete.[..] Maggie watched him furtively, with half-closed eyes, lit with a vague interest Her dim thoughts were often searching for far away lands where, as God says, the little hills sing together in the morning. Under the trees of her dream-gardens there had always walked a lover. The door opened and Pete appeared.  He shrugged his shoulders. "Oh, Gawd," he observed. He walked over to Maggie and whispered in her ear.  "Ah, what deh hell, Mag?  Come ahn and we'll have a hell of a time." 3."Teh hell wid him and you," she said, glowering at her daughter in the gloom.  Her eyes seemed to burn balefully.  "Yeh've gone teh deh devil, Mag Johnson, yehs knows yehs have gone teh deh devil.  Yer a disgrace teh yer people, damn yeh.  An' now, git out an' go ahn wid dat doe-faced jude of yours.  Go teh hell wid him,damn yeh, an' a good riddance.  Go teh hell an' see how......

Dear Brother

...Dear Eric, You’re my younger brother and I love you dearly, however, I wanted to write this letter explaining some concerns I have for you and the direction you are going in your life. I know we have had our troubles with each other more than we have gotten along but, I am willing to put that behind us for the sake of our relationship. You’re family and I will always be there for you and that is why there are a few things I would like to discuss with you. Some of your decisions you have been making aren’t in your best interest and I would like you to understand that it’s not too late to change your ways. In no way am I disappointed in you, but I do want to extend a hand to you in hopes to influence you like I should, as an older brother. Mom and dads divorce impacted you and me both in ways that we couldn’t imagine. It wasn’t easy, and you never really spoke with anybody about it. Throughout the years after our parents’ divorce you were always more quiet and you seemed to isolate yourself from the family. I can’t say I was ever aware of how hard you took it because I was too busy trying to recover myself. I can’t help but feel, if I had taken a little less time golfing and a little more time being a big brother to you, things might be different for you. As much as I would like to think you didn’t look up to me after all the arguments we’ve been through, looking back, I realize you really did. With that said, I am now in college and you’re on your own living with mom and......

Dear Diary

...A Raisin in the Sun Entry 1: Dear Diary, I am just now leaving The United States of America and on the plane right now as I’m writing this. Mama, Walter, Ruth, and Travis all dropped me off at the airport to say goodbye. It was really hard because I know I will not see them for a while, but they know what’s best for me. I know Mama wanted me to be with George, but he truly just wasn’t for me. He wanted me to be someone who I was not. He tried to push me away from who I am. I am Beneatha and proud of myself and family and since he couldn’t respect that I had to let him go. I hope Mama will understand why I did such a thing. She will never know how much I love her. As I am looking out of this window at the little specks of houses diapering I am thinking about what my future holds. I wonder if I have made the right decision, but I can only hope so. Joseph has changed my view of life. He has changed me for the better. I have always wanted to help others after I had watched the little boy in my neighborhood cut his head open. I know I am not the greatest follower of god, but I think this might be his plan for me. To look after the sick and diseased. I am delighted I have met Asagai. It’s almost like he is my other half because when I am with him I feel so alive and free. He makes me feel wanted and loved. He may not be the rich like George, but I love him just as much, if not more. Looking out into the clouds I see a happy future. Saving lives, curing patients, and caring for...

Dear President

...Dear President Obama, How important do you think civic and political participation is? I think it’s very important Mr. President, because Civic and political participation prevents decisions from being made by a few people. In my opinion participation by the masses insures greater freedom. Mr. President, I believe you are familiar with Booker T. Washington. The brave intelligent man who started a college for African Americans after the civil war. He taught African Americans how to live successfully as free people. He also promoted education for African Americans all over the country, and gave instructions in subjects like taking initiative, buying or building houses, building a competitive business, budgeting, keeping a house, all kinds of things nobody learned while in bondage. Booker T. Washington was influenced by disfranchisement and the Jim Crow discriminatory laws enacted in the post-Reconstruction Southern states in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. So tell me, why don’t we have a national holiday celebrating and honoring Booker T? Washington sir? He has done so much for African Americans like me. Thanks to him your daughters and I can go to college and get a higher education. He definitely deserves a holiday celebrating just him and his accomplishments. So, start working on making that happen Mr. President. Sincerely, Britt Ray Works Cited “Bio.” Booker T. Washington Biography, 2015. Accessed February 19, 2015 at......

Dear Andy

...Rebecca McDonald 9 October 2014 Dr. Shafer English 101 Dear Andy: My friends and I are thinking of going on a LSD trip since our grandparents always speak so nostalgically of it when they were lucid. Could you give me some research on the history and effects of this enigmatic drug off the 60's? Should we do it? By the way we are in our mid- twenties. Tripping into Yesterday... Dear Tripping into Yesterday: In today’s society illegal drugs are a big, controversial topic that is talked about frequently. Whether they are trying to legalize the drug or people are getting busted for the possession of it. You have a great question, and it is good to be curious about things in life. Let me tell you a little more about LSD, more than what your grandparents know. LSD (Lysergic Acid Diethylamide) is a compound derived from lysergic acid and is used as a powerful hallucinogenic drug. The acid comes from a type of fungus that grows on grains like rye and wheat. It came about when a chemist by the name of Albert Hofmann first synthesized LSD in 1938 while looking for a blood stimulant. Although its hallucinogenic effects where not known until 1943 when he accidently ingested it. The drug was first tested on animals to ensure safety to be tested on humans. After the discovery of its extraordinary psychic effects, the substance had its first trials on animals. They were admitted into the series of experimental preparations. Most of the fundamental studies on animals were carried......

Dear Gran

...Dear Gran Hope everything is going well at home? I can´t believe it is a whole month since I last saw you. I am having a fantastic time with Sam and Robin and their family. It is really strange Down under. I am sitting here with my I-pad looking at photos and videos that I have been taken. I have some really strange photos, I have one photo of at pet monkey there is chasseing a big spider. I never thought that I would see that in my life but I was really funny. The first week is was down under with Sam and we went out on a hike for two days in the tropical rain forest. We slept under the open sky and I was a great experience and also a little bit cold. My and Sam saw a lot of beautiful animal and we also saw a koala and a lot of birds. After a long night's sleep, all the singing birds and animals awakened me it was terrific. Sam and I came home to the smell of barbecue and it smelled lovely. It was Sam´s wife Robin and her father who had come to the great idea to surprise us with barbeque. The next two-week was a bit more relaxing the only think we did there was to play poker and drink beer and of course we also swam in the pool. After the to weeks we all wet out on a boat trip where we stop at a place call Great Barrier Reef where we all snorkeled. It was really beautiful place with all those coolers and so many different fish. The boat driver invited all of us out for dinner and we said yes.......

Dear Abby

...Minh Dinh SPCH 10 Dear Abby Assignment Dear Abby, My best friend, “Tuan,” recently admitted to me that he wasn’t sure about his gender. He told me with a sincere affection that he was bi-curious, and he wasn’t sure he was completely heterosexual. After hearing his confession, I quietly couldn’t believe his situation. In a moment, I decided that we still be friend forever. I told him that no matter how he was, I still stood right by side with him and that nothing’s going to change the friendship between me and him. However, after few days, I had an embarrassed feeling whenever I hung out with him. No one know his secret, except me, because I am his best friend who he believes the most. The reason why he decided to tell me his secret is that he hoped me could understand and accept the real person of him. However, at this time, I still don’t believe and can’t accept the real one in him. Is it wrong that I’m still friendly with him? Should I be angry at Tuan? What should I do now in order to escape my awkward feeling and don’t ruin my friendship? Signed, Minh D. Dear Minh D. Thank you for sharing your thoughts. The first thing I’m going to tell you that I am very jealous of you because of your wonderful friendship. I’m pretty sure that you are a great person who can listen actively and give advice for anyone that need you. The reason I come to that conclusion is because you’ve earned a strong faith from your best friend that he chose only you to confess his......

Dear

...Dear Dongmei, Thanks for your letter, and I’m happy to show you some my opinions. As far as I’m concerned, Rachel’s behavior is understandable. You know, more and more students participate in the student exchange programme, and their character, purpose and so on are different. We can’t think they’re same. In fact, everyone is different. So I think Rachel doesn’t choose integrate into Chinese culture more because of her personal reasons. Perhaps Rachel is too much shy or unconfident to communicate, or she regards Chinese as a subject, or she doesn’t have power to learn. One possibility is that she is too shy or unconfident to communicate. What’s known is that character has a great influence on people. For example, a shy person doesn’t like talk more with people who is strange. And an unconfident person usually doesn’t tell someone his idea. Besides you’re good friends. So I think maybe as a result of her character, Rachel choose not to integrate into Chinese culture. Another possibility is that she regards Chinese as a subject. In my view, if someone does a work which he has no choice, his efficiency and enthusiasm are lower than he does a work which is his favorite. If she regards Chinese as a subject, her aim possible is high grade but communicate better. So she has little enthusiasm after class and chooses not to take some activities related to local culture. Certainly, it may be because she has no power to learn. It’s known that power makes us to be better. When we do......

Dear President

...Dear President, I am writing you all the way from Florida. I wanted to share with you that not enough people knows that civic and political participation is important, and it is, the govern needs to be heard. Most of the time people share the same ideas or feelings, though there are only few that will stand and try to make a difference. Then there is thousands that will stand behind you. If no one participated, then the government will just start to make decision by themselves and slowly but surely American sinks back into that hole of tyranny. One person who has stood up and participated in civic and political matters is Ida B. Wells. She stood up and participated and gave her all fighting for what she believes. Ida, who was African American, was a journalist, newspaper editor, suffragist, sociologist, georgist and an early leader in the Civil Right Movement. She has me convinced, not to mention several others, that change is more than possible. No matter the size of the problem, it could be changed. To stand up to things as big as to what Ida was standing to, you need motivation. Her motivation was an incidents of discrimination against her. Her parents of Yellow Fever and left behind her and 5 of her siblings. She and her sibling were originally going to be split apart in foster care, so she got a job as a teacher that paid 80 dollars a month and Ida only received 30 a month. This wrong doing made her interested in politics of race and the educations of African......

Dear

...Dear>>, In a few months you will be making one of the biggest adjustments of your life so far. Moving away from home, living on your own, and going to college are all very different and new experiences that you have never encountered. Everyone says college is the time of your life, and you need to make the most of it. I can remember being a Junior in high school thinking about how time was flying by, and I am now about to be a Junior in college. You will be faced with many decisions, some harder than others, and you will have to make many choices. My first big decision was to join Phi Mu. I was not sure I wanted to join a sorority initially, but after I went through the recruitment process I realized how it really was going to be a great opportunity for me. I am so happy with my decision, and I think you need to join a sorority too because I know you will love it as much as I do. I know you are a bit hesitant about joining a sorority because you still want to be friends with your high school friends. I also understand that you prioritize academic clubs over social fraternities. Furthermore, the idea of your grades dropping is also holding you back from participating in a sorority. Allison, I understand you are happy with all the friends you have now, and you do not think you need to meet anymore people. Based on my experience, those girls that have been friends with you since the first day you met in eighth grade will continue to be your friends whether you participate...
