A Great Leader

What does it take to become a Great Leader? Some people might think they are a great leader because they have followers. That's not true in most cases. A Great Leader will do the right thing, be a teammate, and have great preparation. The little things can make you a great leader.
In order to become a Great Leader you'll have to do things the right way. Whether in sports or in life there will always be two groups of people, those who do the right things, and those who don't. You'll need to be able to find out who is in what group. And when you do you find out, place yourself in the right crowd. If there is not a good group then you'll need to separate yourself. One of the greatest leaders King David, was separated from every one. You have to know what right and stick to it. Even if some people try to pressure you to do wrong, just have the courage to do the right thing.
Also Great Leaders help others out. In order to be a Great Leader you have to be humble. You can't go around showing off or bragging because people will not want to follow that. You have to learn that you are not better than the guy next to you, whether you are a senior or a boss. You will also have to be willing to help out your peers. it could be a play, a math problem, or issues at the house, a Great Leader will take his personal time to help someone in need out.
Finally a Great Leader will do what it takes to be prepared. Everything from a huge football game to a important speech needs great preparation for great results. In order to have great preparation you will need to block out anything that has nothing to do with whatever you are preparing for. You have to stay focused when you are preparing don't let outside things get in your way. Another thing that will help is go the extra mile,run an extra lap, hit twenty extra balls, or get more in depth with your research. you can never have to much preparation.
If you follow these things and stick with them you'll be the best leader you could be. You just have to keep your head on straight and do the right things. Also help out the man or woman next to you. and finally prepare like your life depends on it. Follow this and people will watch and follow you. This essay written by Marquis Smith of Class of 2013

The Average Republican ...Did Obama Cause This

After looking at the numbers for the month there is a net loss of jobs of 67,000. We talk about this administration and the discouragement of growth of business. Now the people are being given the popular opinion that the President is doing a terrible job as President. But they forgot that when he came in to office there was a net job loss every month of 750,000. Three quarters of a million jobs a month lost, down the drain. So would you rather loose $750.00 a month or $67.00. It is the same thing, the money is just something that is small enough to make is sinmple enough to understand. Republicans want the office of President so bad and hate so bad that Black American man is the most powerful man in the world and ouit snookered them. Don't forget the American Black is the most hated person in America. So the have the third richest man in Amercia who is also own the company with that is give off the third largest amount of pollution sin the United States. With all opf his money I believe 35 billion dollars to try and dethrone President Obama. So if that man is trying to get President Obama de-elected next 2012 election, Obama must really be good for the country. The same thing was done to President Clinton. We must stand up and not be dismayed my the rhetoric that is spewed over and over again. A lie if told long enough can it become the truth? Let us spread the truth and change public opinion to the real truth "that the economy is getting better". America has been partying since the end of world war 2. The beginning of the baby boom was the start of the party over 60 years. If you had been drinking for 60 years do how long do you think it will take you to gt clean and sober and into you right mind at least 60. so that is what we are up against. It is going to take a while to clean up. Obama is starting the process of cleaning up America. America should have started cleaning up after the first oil embargo in 1974. We should have at that point started having some sort of oil diet and started weening ourselves and the economy off oil. Instead what do we do give lip service and watch and copmplain that oil is going up so high even $148.00 a barrell which was $4.00 a gallon. Politicians let big business rape the small helpless man. The two political parties are not Democrat and Republican, but Corporatons vs Consumers, big business against small people. Lehaman brothers $140,000 toilet in the CEO's office, WTF and the average 3 bedroom 2bath home is $140,000. What did this toilet do? America was built on the backs of the poor, the immigrant, the most hated the black man of Amercia.
