The diary of Samuel Pepys 


In this essay I will talk about the story of Samuel Pepys and with whom he can relate to the values of trust and gratitude to history. To compare these two values of trust and gratitude, we must first understand the meaning of both. Reliability is the ability to be reliable or honest. And being grateful is basically someone who is glad that something happened or that something did not happen or that someone or something existed.

Below I will relate each part of the story with the values mentioned. The story is divided into 3 parts in which each part tells the story of Samuel Pepys, shows his feelings and thoughts about his experience living these events. Relate values with Samuel is someone who is always thinking about what is happening at this time and what can happen as a result of their actions and the actions of other characters.

In the first part of the story, Samuel talks about the coronation of the king, so he was happy and trustworthy in this part because he is watching, the coronation of the king, so he is grateful and happy for the coronation, and I am reliable because he was always loyal to his king at all times and that is why he was always at his events.

In the second part, it can be said that he is grateful because the great fire that happened in London did not kill him, and one of the people he most appreciated is that he and his wife went to the store to buy something to eat, and His wife He prepares his favorite food but it did not seem so favorable on his part to see the fire and not help others.

in the third part, I think he is not grateful, but at the same time yes, because he is a very womanizing man, he was always looking for other women, which shows that he is not grateful and does not have enough confidence for the wife he has. In conclusion of the story, Samuel Pepys was a little confused, because somewhere in the story he shows us the values of gratitude and trust, but sometimes he can do something that can show us that he was not grateful for some factors.

the virtues are one of the most important values ​​in a person's life, Rules in our lives to behave well and communicate with others and have a good coexistence. there is no doubt that virtues can consider a person as good or bad, when a person does not apply these values, mistreat others, insult people and have bad consequences due to wrongdoing and many other things, and this It happens when a person's values ​​are not well established from the beginning of their lives, people who know how to behave through their ethics offer these virtues that are completely different because they always respect others, have good relationships with people and They can also have good communication in a community. For me, some of the most important virtues are respect, tolerance, loyalty, humility, love and justice. In my opinion, the virtues are like the moral rules and, at the same time, the rules of life because talking about values ​​or virtues are characteristic aspects of each person and how society carries out in a good or bad way, but the Learning These virtues are learned mainly at home. With our parents, they are the ones who teach us since we were children.

Something that has been lost over time is that parents do not teach the importance of values ​​to children and seek to replace it with material things and do not teach them the values ​​that you have to have as a person to have a trained character, because Every value or value is important for life to improve a person. People who do not apply the virtues in adulthood usually have many problems because they are people without well-founded values ​​and have problems with others for the same factor. For me, today is not easy because of the type of people in the society in which we live or the environment in which we surround ourselves but, of course, not all are bad. But people in this world had changed to be more interested in themselves, being selfish with others there was more hypocrisy, selfishness, among many more. But it's important to talk about good things because not everything is bad, obviously, the world has good people and good actions tell the difference, this year the world has been in continuous change, nowadays most adolescents and children do not have respect for others, people are no longer generous because people only want to succeed individually, regardless of the other. I believe that the world can change for good values, good learning of our parents, applying the virtues and having good manners.

If you think about what the world would be like without the virtues or values, you can imagine people committing mistakes, hypocritical and selfish living, there would be many wars, there would never be an agreement and much less stable countries because a person without moral principles is incomplete because at the moment that one is born and grows they have to go teaching how to act in life so as not to have conflicts with other people. But the saddest thing is that the people of the last of these years are that their moral sense has been lost over the years and that is totally bad because we are the example of the next generations and of our children, not only the world is also decaying people without good managers and good actions, and also for this We are losing our human spirit, we know that we do not want to help anyone because we only want everything good for them. The virtues or values ​​are what can

COLOMBIA, BARRANQUILLA MY NEIGHBORHOOD

Colombia is a country with a great diversity of animals, flowers, cultures among many things. There are many reasons to be proud of
Colombia because in this country we can find nature reserves, our flora and fauna, the diversity of cultures of our people and the richness of our cultural and artistic heritage are some of them. We also have a great recognition that identifies us in front of the world for sports, artists among many things. Many of these things are present in our daily life, in our celebrations, events and solemn occasions. Its meaning is the pride we feel to be Colombians, our belonging and origin. It is also a republic that includes 32 departments. The Colombian territory was originally inhabited by indigenous peoples. You can name several festivities in Colombia such as art festivals, music festivals and cultural festivals, among others. The Carnival of Barranquilla occurs in the days leading up to Lent. The Barranquilla Carnival is the second largest carnival celebration in the world, and is considered by most as the most famous and important festival in Colombia. The Flores Festival in Medellín is another incredible festival in Colombia that takes place in Medellín, Antioquia. This festival takes place every year during the first two weeks of August and lasts around 10 days.

The actual president is Ivan Duque who got the president´s position one month ago. The ex-president was Juan Manuel Santos and he did many good things for this country like the peace agreement.


Barranquilla or also called Puerta de Oro is one of the most important cities of Colombia since it is where the development of the country comes in, in addition to having one of the most important events in the country that are carnivals. Despite being a hot city, it has one of the best beaches and, in addition, it will never get cold. Barranquilla has had many changes that have changed the city and looking towards the other side of the city, this our river, in works like the boardwalk, the center of events of the golden gate and the monument "the window to the world" that recently opened. Barranquilla was also the center of the Central American games of the Caribbean, so this led to Barranquilla to build and improve its sports facilities that is now available to all Barranquilla for the use of this. Barranquilla, besides all its beauty, is a multicultural city. Barranquilla is also characterized by gastronomy, where many travelers come to the city to enjoy Italian, Arab, Peruvian, Spanish food and their own typical food. As for music, rhythms from many countries, mainly from the Caribbean, are also presented, such as salsa, regue, ranchera and their own music, such as cumbia and vallenato. In music, our pride is Shakira, who has achieved international triumphs and recognition.


I live in the neighborhood of Río Mar located north of the city of Barranquilla is characterized by having houses with high-rise buildings and are surrounded by green areas which are visited by families from all over the city, and shopping centers such as buenavista, viva, homecenter . There is also a soccer field that children and youth from different neighborhoods of Barranquilla use every day. Nearby is the sector of universities, such as the Universidad del Atlántico, Universidad del Norte, Universidad del Libre, San Martín University, among others. In the neighborhood where I also live, there are educational institutions such as Teaching, Spanish colombo, lyndon b, among others. It is a quiet neighborhood, nice, with good transport services and roads in good condition, in the mornings you can see the neighbors of the sector doing physical activity, or walking their pets, in general is one of the best neighborhoods in the city.

THE POLITICAL, SOCIAL AND ECONOMICAL SITUATION IN THREE COUNTRIES IN SOUTH AMERICA
In South America there are 12 countries that are: Argentina, Bolivia, Brasil, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, Uruguay, Guayana, Paraguay, Peru, Surinam and Venezuela. Each of them is characterized by having benefits and disadvantages in different aspects, economic, social and political. I decided to talk about Colombia, brazil and venezuela

Colombia                                         

Colombia is a democracy in which citizens have a voice when the government makes a decision about the country, because every decision that the country has and implies a change that can affect the lives of Colombians must first have a voting to see if they are in favor or not, Colombians can also choose their representatives when they are over 18 years old and with a card in hand. The voting in Colombia is to go to an electoral ballot box and vote for the preferred candidate to your liking, but it is not obligatory to attend said voting and each candidate lasts 4 years in power when it comes to presidents, senators, mayors, etc. In Colombia, everyone knows that in the country many politicians are corrupt and make laws or acts for their own benefit, this affects all citizens and all the responsibilities that must be taken in a way have not been completed.

Colombia in the social aspect is a country with great problems because it excels in poverty. In a statistics 46% of Colombians live in poverty and one of the things that most affects educational development is the lack of education there. Another social aspect that affects the society of this country is that sometimes we do what the government tells us to do to be in their favor without showing our concerns about the problematic. The cultures settled in the country like the Europeans, the indigenous people and the African cultures that came to Colombia at the time of the conquest of our territories are the basis of the Colombian culture since over the years there have been many tourist places to remember the History, which also shares fundamental features with other Hispanic-American cultures in manifestations such as religion, music, dances, parties, traditions, among others.

In the economic aspect, Colombia has many problems due to taxes, knows that the minimum wage is not enough due to taxes and that is why we are a poor country that can not move forward if things do not change. This is a country rich in natural resources that can take advantage of it and progress economically.


Brazil

Brazil in the political aspect is a presidential government regime. The current constitution, approved in 1988, guarantees the independence of the executive, legislative and judicial branches. The presidential elections are held every 4 years, the federal Senate is composed of 81 senators elected for periods of 8 years according to the principle of the majority, this chamber is renewed every 4 years alternately.  The Brazilian coalition or federation is constituted by the union of three different political entities that are composed of: the municipalities, the district and the states. The union is made up of the district, the states and the municipalities, they are the base of the government. The coalition is defined in five fundamental principles: sovereignty, citizenship, the dignity of the person, the social values ​​of work and free initiative, and political pluralism.

Brazil in the economic aspect has a very high and powerful economy, and is recognized throughout the world, it is one of the main economies of Latin America and the second in America, and it is the sixth in the world according to the statistics and studies carried out. outside. , has also become one of the main in the world, since 2003 there was a large increase in the volume and price of domestic and international demand for raw materials, especially in oil, coal, minerals and meat that was accompanied by the entry of new capitals and various structural reforms. In this way, macroeconomic stability was achieved and poverty levels were reduced by a percentage, through social assistance programs for low-income people.

The Brazilian culture is a mixture of traditions and customs typical of three groups that shaped the current national identity: native Amerindians, Portuguese colonizers and African and European immigrants. The basis of Brazilian culture is derived from Portuguese culture, due to its strong links with the Portuguese colonial empire. but some social problems are: organized crime, illegal immigration, poverty, the rights of the community of other genders. because brazil is a country where it is very liberal and for them it is not wrong to see some attitudes that are not well seen for us.


Venezuela

In the political aspects it is based on a constitutional democracy. The current National Constitution of Venezuela was approved by the great majority of the Venezuelan people in December 1999. It states that important progress has been made in the restructuring of the country and the state. Since the adoption of this Constitution, the Venezuelan State has been constituted 5 Powers: Executive, Legislative, Judicial, Citizen and Electoral. At present, the mature President Nicolas is trying to govern a democracy to pass it through a dictatorship, through his bad government, Venezuela has become one of the most corrupt countries in South America, because the president creates laws in his favor and makes an electoral fraud at the moment when the people vote for a decisión.

In the economic aspect Venezuela is in a state of crisis, because the bad organization of the Venezuelan government has let the monetary value of its currency fall in such a way that its weight at the time of the change is nothing, all for the president who only thought about its benefits and those that helped it, the Venezuelan economy in the last 4 years was reduced by 35%, Venezuela despite being a country rich in oil and natural resources to decay in a disastrous way, before a barrel of petrolio could cost 200 US dollars now only costs 60 dollars, big companies had to close due to the lack of resources and economy that are presented in this country, and that affects a country that does not produce does not generate income and that makes that decays economically, among many other aspects.

In the social aspect, citizens are affected by what happens in the country because they can not receive a good health system, prices are very high and people do not have money to pay, there is a shortage in food, and the most shocking thing is that the same government of Venezuela is killing its people, by the Bolivarian National Police, they do it as they show power and they kill people who are against their government or who try to make a change.

VIOLENCE AGAINST WOMEN AND CHILDREN WORLDWIDE

Violence against women and children is one of the most important problems in the world, because one of the most important characteristics of society is based on them. Women are an important base in the home and in the work because of their great capacity to help and work and children are not to blame for all the bad things because as the word is children and they are unnoticed of what happens in the world. Any human being deserves to be mistreated if there is any devastating damage or deed to do so, but women and children are the most affected because women are considered weak sex and children do not have the same strength as an adult. Like women against a man in most cases but there are many types of violence against women there is physical violence, psychological violence, sexual violence, etc., millions of women are abused in various parts of the world, where a lot of Adolescents end up pregnant when they are only 10 or 16 years old. Violence against children when they are only 9 or 14 years old who are working instead of studying or in some cases the child lives as a slave.

One of the most common cases of violence against women is in the couple, where the abuse is mainly against them. Because the couple wants to have total control over it or in other cases because they do not want the woman to work, etc. The most visible characteristics of abuse in general are beatings and murders, are those that transcend the reach of the couple ,

Violence against children is one of the biggest problems affecting families and societies. It happens all over the world, all too often, you can see more in the family. Violence against children includes all forms of violence against people under the age of 18 in Colombia, either by the parents or by other persons responsible for the children. The majority of violence against children involved at least one of the six types of interpersonal violence that tend to occur at different stages of a child's development. Abuse involves physical, sexual or emotional violence. Bullying is the aggressive behavior of a child who has no family relationship. Psychological violence includes restrictions on denigration, ridicule, threats and intimidation, discrimination, rejection and other non-physical forms of hostile treatment. Violence is a problem that increases over the years. It is not shown in books and magazines, on television and in the media. Children can pick up the violence of a parent or the person who raised them at a young age, they can follow their actions as they grow up and become men in the future. It has been proven psychologically that they are more aggressive than women. Therefore, if a child's peers are aggressive, their actions tend to be imitated. Now many cases of violence, cases of kidnapping, kidnapping, sexual assault, rape, physical abuse and murder have been seen or filed. In my opinion, people who mistreat women and children should have a worse punishment than jail.
