Pacifism- The belief that any violence, including war, is unjustifiable under any circumstances, and that all disputes should be settled by peaceful means
Conscientious- Wishing to do what is right, esp. to do one's work or dutywell and thoroughly.
I am a pacifist because I don't like the war. I think we all should be happy. We shouldn't have to fight over stuff. I don't like it when random people get shoot because they live around the area.
I like the 1995 one because it has a man who served in the war and he has his pins on. On the 2010 one I don't really know the places they said that at the top. But I like how they put the flag. The poster for 1995 is when I was born. The different's is there is a person and different colors. The 2010 poster just has a flag and different places and things at the top.

On the 7th of November Myanmar is holding an election for the first time in 20 years. But it really isn't a real election. There are over 2,200 people in jail for what they think. So it really isn't a majority of the people voting because most of them are in jail for what they think. They Don't have the freedom to express there self even in a peaceful association, they are all silenced.
In Maine Today we are voting. When I turn 18 I do plan on voting. I might not always want to but I plan on trying to vote. I think I would value the opportunity to express myself more if it was taken away because I am one of the people who like the say what they wont when they won't. I would not like going to jail for saying my opinion.

The book I am reading is You Can Run But You Can't Hide by Daune Chapman "dog". This book is about Dog growing up and being a drug user and going to jail after having a kid. Then he turns his life around and then starts doing drugs again. After having a couple kids he finally turned his life around and started Bounty Hunting. One major conflict in this story is when he has a kid and he has to go to jail and he gets a letter saying his wife left him and she is taking his kid. I love this book because I like having the thrill of what Dog does. I was recommend this book to girls and boys and people who like having a little thrill. This book is really not that long, but it is good in length. The structure is mostly just him talking about everything that happened in his life growing up. "Tell them I'm at work, Tell them I already left."
