The Devil & Tom Walker


In this story i can see how the values of trustworthiness and thankful are not totally apply. First the meaning of trustworthiness is the ability to be relied on as honest or truthful. And the meaning of thankful is expressing gratitude and relief. In this story we can see how people have confidence to Tom walker but Tom didn’t have confidence to the other people, Tom was that type of person that wants to receive more and more but he didn’t want to give to others, so Tom was an untrustworthy person because he swindled people with their dealings. So in this story trustworthiness is shown in the people that have confidence with Tom and also when the devil was looking for Tom but also in this case Tom didn’t have confidence with the devil, so in Tom there is no trustworthiness. Also we can see that Tom was an un thankful man because he have a lot of lands, a lot of money, have a family, food, etc and he was not happy with that because every time he wanted more and he didn’t value what he had, also we can see tom’s wife that are also a selfish woman that she told the devil to give everyting to her and not to her husband Tom, and she is also an unthankful person because she have money and the same things of Tom but she didn’t value that, so Tom and his wife are unthankful person and selfish that always whants all for her own. In my opinion these values are but at the same time they are not applied in this story because we can see the confidence from the people to Tom but not from Tom to the people or even totaly in his wife. So i learn that we need to be thankful for all the things we have and somtimes have confidence with the people we know that are good persons.

Soon they realized that it was time to go out to the party so Olivia took the keys to her car, called her friends and left. When they arrived at the party they realized that it was full of people that most did not even know so they started looking for their friends and when they were looking for their friends Samantha realized that at that party was her ex-friend, july, so she immediately ran to tell her friends that she was very scared because once a few months ago, july tried to kill samantha because she realized that her boyfriend was kissing her at a party, which was not blame samantha since she was not the one who started the kiss if not july's boyfriend, so since then july and samantha are no longer best friends and now july has a big hatred towards samantha. Later when Samantha was on her way to the kitchen to find something to drink, she met Mario, the ex-boyfriend of July, talking about their lives Samantha was very scared that July would find them talking so he told Mario that it would be better to talk outside with the excuse that inside there was a lot of noise and he was not listening well, so they went outside and started talking about their lives more quietly, after a while to be talking Samantha realized that july was leaning out the window and came walking towards them with a not very nice face so samantha took Mario by the arm and took him running to the back entrance of the house so that july would not realized it but when they went into the house they realized something very strange, and it was that there was nobody, from one moment to another the whole world had disappeared, so they started looking around the house, they started with the garage since they thought it could have been a joke but when they opened the door they saw that it was also empty, so they started looking in the kitchen, in the rooms, in the rooftop but they did not find a single trace of anyone, so they started calling all his friends but none answered the cell phone and after 3 hours no one gave a sign of life decided to go to the police but when they went out ... july killed them both and never knew where the rest of people who were at that party that night.

MY NEIGHBORHOOD
I live in a group of houses in a neighborhood that i considered to be very well located as it has nearby shopping centers suach as “Buenavista”, “El Gran Boulevard”, “Makro”, “ara”, also has a clinical laboratory, a hairdresser, a pharmacy and many things but so i think it is in an excellent location. My neighborhood is a quiet place where there is only scandal at the time of the carnaval, is a place where i can walk quietly without worrying about being stolen because there are many others sets of houses around where there is a lot of surveillance. Within my group of houses there are 110 houses and gym facilities, swimming pool, soccer field, golf course, social room and a cinema. Also near my neighborhood is the “sonesta hotel” that it is one of the beautiful hotels here in barranquilla. There are also the new tennis courts that our mayor Alejandro char built for the central american games. I like my neighborhood because i have most of my friends close to me, and i also have the school near my house. Around my neighborhood is many Green areas with trees, shurbs, palms, flowers, differents plants and more. I like it when i’m coming to my house because I can see the ocean view and it looks very nice.

My life

Hi! My name is Maria Alejandra Sierra, I’m 15 years old, I studied at the Lyndon B Johnson school since fourth grade and I consider that school as my second home where my family is also. When I was 7 years old I was diagnosed with a malignant cancer and a tumor in my right arm that according to 7 doctors here in Barranquilla I was going to die, but thank God I didn’t die, and after a very long process and two surgeries I continued with my life like any other. Now I’m starting 11th grade with good expectations and thinking since now what I'm going to study at the university. In my family we are 6 people, my two parents (sara and carlos) my sister and her husband (gloria and yezid) and the joy of the house, sarah, the daughter of my sister, oh and me. We like to spend time in family because all the days we learn something about each other. On December 21 we had to take a flight that we had to buy that same day because we thought that my sister was going to give birth that day because she had strong contractions, but no, it was a simple contractions and Sarah was born a month later. On that trip in which we lasted 3 months in Miami all my family learned to value much more all the things we had because we realized that nothing was easy to get, and since then we have learned to be more united and fight together for the things we want to achieve.
