My favorite writing piece was from the personal narrative that I wrote about my uncles hardware.
The Hardware Exchange is one of the best examples of a small family
owned business in the Delaware area. They offer so many things to their customers,
friends, and community that the big box store just can’t do. As a small
business they strive to help every single person that walks through the door
and treat them like family, because repeat customers help them stay in business
and this is what motivates small businesses to have excellent customer service.
One thing that struck me as interesting was when Leroy said to me, “Don’t ever
retire, find something you love and keep doing it, I know too many people who
retire and then die young because there’s nothing to look forward to”. In this
way small business owners are very unique and have many great stories and have

I am proud of this because this I learned so much from this project and I feel it came out in my writing. I learned so many new things about my family and learned the history of the hardware I have been going to since I was a child.
An organization that I feel is important and that is worth looking into is the American Motorcyclist Association (AMA). They are all about protecting the rights of riders and racers. They help create new laws that improve safety on the road so not as many motorcyclist get hurt from distracted drivers. The AMA also sanctions all of the racing in the U.S. like Superbike, Motocross, Supercross, GNCC, Hare scrambles, Hill Climb racing, Amateur Mx Nationals, and man other two wheel racing events. The AMA is more than an organization its a club of people who love motorcycles an everything to do with them. I am very passionate Motocross racer and the AMA has been around for a long time creating and running events for people like me who live and breathe racing.
