Sir Charles “Charlie” Chaplin was an English actor, comedian, and filmmaker that rose to fame in the silent era. He was a worldwide icon through his screen persona “the Tramp”. He is one of the most important figures in the history of the film industry. His acting career spanned more than 75 years since his childhood. His death at age 88 has encompassed both adulation and controversy. He co-found the distribution company United Artist, which gave him complete control over his films. His first film was The Kid (1921). He was accused of his communist sympathies, which led to his decline by satirizing Adolf Hitler in the film,The Great Dictator (1940). During an FBI investigation, he was forced to leave the United States, and settle in Switzerland. He wrote, directed, produced, starred in, and composed the music for most of his films. In 1972 he received an Honorary Academy Award for “the incalculable effect he has had in the making motion pictures the art form of the century”.

Care For Good Brave People
I think we overlook on some good brave people like us. The reason is that some of them don’t want to see the good side in us. Why is that? This is a mystery to me, and most people. One way we would show you that we’re good honest people is by proving it to you all, but sometimes it isn’t enough. I think during the passing years they start noticing us in this way. I didn’t have to convince some people the good brave in me, it just reappeared. In time we have to be caring for other good brave people. However, when we’re mad at certain people we need to take it out of us. Through these times that are happy and difficult we don’t need anymore complications coming to us all. Some of us make problems to other strangers they don’t have it yet. I care about good brave people. I think you should to. Some people get carried away by being friends with jerks thinking they are nice, and marrying them. I don’t know why. But, it happens. It will happen again. Some bad people hide their inner bad and pose as nice people. It has always happened before, and it will happen again. For those of you who did the brave proudest things give yourself much applause, and a pat on the back. You deserve it. We should care for our family members who fight for us everyday. Think of all those things that past living beings did for us to give us peace and liberty. Idolize the right heroes and not the scapegoats. Be proud that you’re brave, and don’t give crap from anybody. Fight for your families, and friends peace. Show to your brave friends that you care about them.

The Killings, Sons of Anarchy, and Dexter
My favorite shows this year so far are The Killings, Sons of Anarchy, and Dexter. I am watching The Killings, and Dexter. I am waiting for Sons of Anarchy to start, and it starts next month. So far for the show Dexter I am currently in season 6. I am interested in how a serial killer, like Dexter gets away from everything that’s illegal. The other thing is he’s the Robin Hood of the city fighting crime in modern times. Instead of killing innocent people he kills criminals. Even if it’s not right thing to do it, he goes by his own agenda. This is what’s great about the show. I see different sides of Dexter, and the police force. The Killings is much decent. It is about cops that try to find criminals to bring them to justice. They do things by the books, and sometimes against it, if necessary, so the bad people won’t get away with crime. The one that I love the most out of all of this is Sons of Anarchy. It has jealousy, hatred, betrayal between criminals, and some cops help the bad guys. The biker gangs look cool, but I know what they’re doing is illegal and wrong. This is what makes it exciting: the drama. I watch the shows, because I like that kind of stuff. The final season of S.O.A. will be about Jax Teller avenging his wife’s death. We will see when Juice, and Gemma Teller are going to get killed by someone they know or Jax Teller himself does it. It seems to me that Jax hates Juice, because he thinks he betrayed him, and is a bad piece to his side. He also doesn’t get along well with his mother, and will soon find the real truth she’s hiding. Juice has tried to kill himself, but to no avail, because his biker gang friends prevented him from doing it. The most interesting part will be between Jax Teller, and Marilyn Manson’s character. I want to see what happens when they meet each other in jail. I am also watching Scandal, which is my other favorite show, also. This one is all about politics. The politics are dirty in this one. It has major drama.
