"Atoms for Peace"
President Dwight D. Eisenhower was determined to solve “the fearful atomic dilemma” by finding some way by which “the miraculous inventiveness of man” would not be dedicated to his death, but consecrated to his life. In his Atoms for Peace speech before the United Nations General Assembly on December 8, 1953, President Eisenhower sought to solve this terrible problem by suggesting a means to transform the atom from a scourge into a benefit for mankind.

Assignment 8 (7): Sense of Place
On my way back to Atchison, my roommate and I stopped by this church to make a short visit. As soon as I entered, I ran back to the car to get my camera. The beauty of this church was amazing. I was so glad that I had my camera with me. I think this picture really fits with the sense of place assignment for me because it portrays the marvelous beauty that one can find when visiting different churches.
Yes, thank you very much. :/
Consignment stores are pretty useful for findin’ stuff to wear. I also happen to like both Sears and JcPenney, when their stuff is on sale. If I can’t find anything I like that’s cheap at the store, I’ll just make something myself. That’s a lost art, y’know, makin’ your own clothes. I don’t think I’ve ever bought a scarf, a winter hat, or gloves. Why buy ‘em when you can just make ‘em?
I just don’t see what the point is of buyin’ clothes that cost more than $10 or $20, if it’s especially nice. I’ve seen T-shirts sellin’ for $50 or more at those fancy malls and it’s something I will never understand. Is anyone really dumb enough to buy that crap? Ya know it’s just gonna fall apart within a month or so. It oughtta be a crime to swindle people like that.

Oh Kansas, I miss you.
