Make a story using these words: Atmosphere, Energy, Feature, Measurment, Rotation, Solar system, Solid, Surface. I will give 78 points!

The atmosphere is a peculiar thing. There can be different things in the air and we wouldn't even know it. We inhale different things from the atmosphere and we sometimes don't even notice.

Energy is in everything. We have energy, a pencil has energy, heck! A piece of cheese string has energy. When we move, we are using our energy, when a pencil writes or falls, that is energy. When we eat cheese, it turns to energy in our stomachs!

I NEED AN ANSWER ASAPI Have A Dream Martin Luther King, Jr. 1 I am happy to join with you today in what will go down in history as the greatest demonstration for freedom in the history of our nation. 2 Five score years ago, a great American, in whose symbolic shadow we stand today, signed the Emancipation Proclamation. This momentous decree came as a great beacon light of hope to millions of Negro slaves who had been seared in the flames of withering injustice. It came as a joyous daybreak to end the long night of their captivity. 3 But one hundred years later, the Negro still is not free. One hundred years later, the life of the Negro is still sadly crippled by the manacles of segregation and the chains of discrimination. One hundred years later, the Negro lives on a lonely island of poverty in the midst of a vast ocean of material prosperity. One hundred years later, the Negro is still languishing in the corners of American society and finds himself an exile in his own land. So we have come here today to dramatize a shameful condition. 4 In a sense we have come to our nation's capital to cash a check. When the architects of our republic wrote the magnificent words of the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence, they were signing a promissory note to which every American was to fall heir. This note was a promise that all men, yes, black men as well as white men, would be guaranteed the unalienable rights of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. 5It is obvious today that America has defaulted on this promissory note insofar as her citizens of color are concerned. Instead of honoring this sacred obligation, America has given the Negro people a bad check, a check which has come back marked "insufficient funds." But we refuse to believe that the bank of justice is bankrupt. We refuse to believe that there are insufficient funds in the great vaults of opportunity of this nation. So we have come to cash this check — a check that will give us upon demand the riches of freedom and the security of justice. We have also come to this hallowed spot to remind America of the fierce urgency of now. This is no time to engage in the luxury of cooling off or to take the tranquilizing drug of gradualism. Now is the time to make real the promises of democracy. Now is the time to rise from the dark and desolate valley of segregation to the sunlit path of racial justice. Now is the time to lift our nation from the quick sands of racial injustice to the solid rock of brotherhood. Now is the time to make justice a reality for all of God's children.Which MOST ACCURATELY reflects a traditional or contemporary theme of this speech?

And its B cuz=

What MOST ACCURATELY reflects a traditional or contemporary theme of this speech is the new political energy related to race relations in the 1960's. In the opening lines of this section, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. refers to the large crowd as the 'greatest demonstration of freedom in the history of our nation.' He uses the phrase 'the fierce urgency of now, ' and then the word 'now' four more times in the last section. These combine to send the message (theme) that there is a new energy and urgency of the 1960's. The urgency revolves around equality and racial justice.
