Joshua Campbell 11/23/2012 Mr.Ammary English 12 Whose Life was like Wind Three Songs that Relate to me. Mad World - Gary Jules
All around me are familiar faces,Worn out places, worn out faces Bright and early for the daily racesGoing nowhere, going nowhere Their tears are filling up their glassesNo expression, no expression Hide my head I wanna drown my sorrowNo tomorrow, no tomorrow And I find it kind of funny, I find it kind of sad, The dreams in which I'm dying are the best I've ever had I find it hard to tell you, I find it hard to take When people run in circles its a very, very Mad world, mad world, mad world The World is in a constant state of illusion. One thing sparks another and it seems as if people live in a world of corruption. There are some things you can’t change. I never understood that saying. I always thought of it as you could only if you try. I’ve been trying to change a lot of things.

Hello Hello - Sr-71
Hello Hello I bring you letters from the man you used to know Give in let go To the words that made you feel you weren't alone Now it's funny how we find out Time can solve the mystery but love is only temporary Hello Hello

The smile on your face is just For show Inside you screaming let me go Hello Hello Loneliness doesn't make a sound Till I head back underground Girls are just confusing sometimes. You can figure out ways to live without them. Its weird though how we men act around them. We try and bottle up our feelings sometimes as an act of pride but its just confusing sometimes.

...Teenage pregnancy Teenage pregnancies are pregnancies below the age of 20. A teenager is a person aged from puberty to maturity. Adolescence — a Latin word meaning “to grow up” — is a transitional stage of physical and psychological human development that generally occurs during the period of puberty to legal adulthood. The period is closely associated with teen years. Adolescent pregnancy is a major contributor to both infant and maternal health problems and mortality. Adolescence aged less than 16 years faces four times the risk of maternal death than women in their 20s; while the death rate of their neonates is about 50 per cent higher. Adolescent pregnancy requires special physical and psychological attention during pregnancy, childbirth and the post-natal period for preserving their health and that of their baby. An estimated 16 million girls ages 15 to 19 give birth every year, with 95 per cent of these births occurring in developing countries. This makes up 11 per cent of all births worldwide. Globally, two per cent of adolescent births take place in China, 18 per cent in Latin America, while 50 per cent of all adolescent births occur in seven countries of the world, viz: Bangladesh, Brazil, DR of Congo, India, Nigeria and USA.

...Teenage pregnancy 2 Teenage Pregnancy Sexuality always has been a curious topic for teens. Teenagers do not think of the consequences of sexual intercourse; including pregnancy, sexually transmitted diseases, and economic aspects. When a child becomes a teenager, hormones affect how a teenager thinks rationally about sex. They think they have the maturity level to have sexual intercourse. Persisting problem Teenage pregnancy is a growing problem that affects the rest of that person’s life. The statistics of teenage pregnancy are staggering to consider. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), more than 400,000 infants were born to teenage mothers in 2009 (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 2011). Teenage pregnancy has lifelong consequences that most teenagers do not consider; including dropping out of high school, health problems, and a life of poverty (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 2011). A teenage pregnancy is more than a global problem; the local communities are affected as well.

Teenage Pregnancy

...The numbers of teenage pregnancy are very high but when you think about the numbers most could have been prevented with the use of protection. Some people may not afford condoms but if you cannot afford a condom you cannot afford a baby. Children from homes ran by teenage mothers go through a hard time in life. Teenage mothers have no time for other things, because they are busy taking care of their baby. Most teen mothers end up dropping out of high school, because they do not have time for school anymore. They work for low wages to make money and support the child. Some teenagers try to stay in school to have a good image, so that other people in school do not look at them as a pregnant teenager but as just one of them. Most teens that have had sex wish they had waited longer and most teens and adults believe that it is important for teens to be given a strong message from society that they should not have sex until they are at least out of high school. Other teens do what they have to do and give their full support to the child, they stay in school until close the time of their baby’s delivery date. When teenagers plan to have intercourse, they should think about whether or not they could handle a child in their life. “Each year, women around the world experience 75 million unwanted pregnancies. Unwanted pregnancy can happen for two main reasons: either the couple was not using contraception, or the method they were using failed. There are many reasons why people do not......

What are some of the causative factors for the difference in numbers between these two states? Positive and negative effects of teenage pregnancy, along with why teenage pregnancy rates have continued to decrease since 1992, not only in the United States as a whole, but in Indiana and Kentucky as well. To conclude this research, I will discuss the practices or techniques that are being used to curb and prevent this epidemic problem. Today is April 19th, 2016 and the time is 6:00 p.m., in a suburb outside of Indianapolis, IN. Did you know that before mid-night, “23 Hoosier teenagers will become pregnant?’ This is a statistic that was released by Plan parenthood of Indiana and Kentucky in 2015 (Lieber, 2015).

...teenage pregnancy is a complex and controversial social issue in the USA of teenage females getting pregnant. In the underdeveloped countries the practice of having teenage pregnancies is not unique but rather is usual since most women are expected to be married and have children before they turn 20. The problem for the society with teenage pregnancies is that teenagers are believed not to be ready emotionally and financially to raise their children even though they are indeed physiologically capable of producing offspring. Teenage girls when getting pregnant typically are involved in some form of school education and do depend on their parents and relatives at least to a certain degree. In most cases the father of the baby in teenage pregnancy is of similar age and thus is also financially and emotionally unprepared to raise a baby. Dependence on his parents is also the fact. The greatest concern in teenage pregnancy is seen when the mother was below the age of consent when the child was conceived while the father was clearly above the age of consent. If a teenage mother chooses not to keep the child she has two options: Abortion. The child is not even born and the pregnancy is interrupted (Edelman, 2003). Adoption. The child is born, yet the mother gives it away. According to various researches in the USA more than 30% of teenage pregnancies result in abortions. At the same time the relationship between a teenage mother and a father usually turns into a......

...to this phenomenon, nevertheless, how are they all connected? All of which will all be addressed in the contents of this paper. Which leaves the burning question: is teen pregnancy accepted into our society as a norm, or is it still a deviant act? First and for most, there are many different definitions of teenage pregnancy depending on the source of the information. However, as a broad definition defines teenage pregnancy as “a female typically between the ages of thirteen and nineteen, typically who hasn’t completed her core education secondary schools has few or no marketable skills, is financially dependent upon an older adult typically her parents and or continues to live at home and is typically mentally immature”. (Adolescent Health) Most importantly, it states that a person who is not financially or mentally stable and that is not ready to have an offspring. Teen pregnancy is becoming more popular in the media and from a political, and educational standpoint; an underlying social problem that is now making it known. In addition to the previous statement, the more media attention this problem receives the stronger the message sends to the young women that teenage pregnancy can be an acceptable way of life. Movies, TV shows, magazines, and music forces sex into the media but never gives light to the consequences to the actions, and the outcomes. They do not take into consideration the statistics, or the facts. Instead of looking at the reality of the situation at......
