    It was a sad excuse for a dock but as I was staring up at the stars, each individually glimmering in the vast darkness, all my thoughts and worries vanished. I felt as though I was a part of those stars. I felt a part of their light. The stars finally allowed me to detach myself from earth. The wonderment that only a child can know jolted through my veins. Gazing from one part of the sky to the next, I wasn't thinking about atoms, protons, or any other principles of astronomy, just stars, as they should be seen.

Our lives crossed paths one day when Mikey was able to escape from his precarious lifestyle in the neighborhoods of downtown Detroit by moving to the friendly confines of Wheaton, Illinois to temporarily reside with his aunt. To Mikey, the move was like taking a vast leap from hell to utopia. To me, Wheaton, the place I called my home, was an ultra conservative town with more churches than individuals of a different race. He was alone and lost amid a predominantly white neighborhood.

  18. Ritalin is the only effective treatment for Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder

    The article goes on the say that drug treatments for ADHD can even cause brain damage and death! In regards to this topic, Dr Kendal from the Royal college of Psychiatrists concluded that doctors do not have enough support when it comes to using new methods to treat ADHD and therefore prescribe Ritalin too freely without trying or suggesting new treatments as an alternative (Cleland, G 12/11/07).

  19. Are psychological therapies equally effective in treating mood disorders than drug treatment?

    Drug treatments for mood disorders aim to alter the brain chemistry which appears to be different between suffers and non-suffers. Although pharmaceuticals appear to have a positive effect on some people, they can potentially increase sufferers' symptoms and produce some negative side affects. Teicher et al (1990) suggested that specific pharmaceuticals, especially selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs), can cause an increase in suicidal tendencies among depressed patients when compared to patients being administered placebos and psychological therapies. In dispute of this idea, Khan et al (2003)

  22. The Issue of Wikipedia

    I first started to question Wikipedia while studying A-levels; for one thing, all the teachers were against it. I could never really understand why. Then when assigned to do research on the internet, Wikipedia was the first to appear by Google. I didn't think twice about going on to it, I had found my information, and then decided to compare it to other websites. In comparison with 3 other websites, Wikipedia was the only one with an answer that didn't match up, "defenders of Wikipedia argue that mistakes and deliberate misuse are rapidly picked up and corrected"1.
