Historical Events in 2006 Research Paper
On a hot, sunny July morning in 2006, Felicia Uzuyem gave birth to a bouncing baby boy. Midnight of July 19, 2006, Emmanuel rushes Felicia to the hospital because she feels a weird type of way “down there.” Prior to the baby’s birth, Emmanuel and Felicia were thinking about things they would do with their newborn, which clothes he would wear, what his room would look like, what his crib would look like. They also recalled the moment when Doctor Pitters had given them the news; Felicia was 3 weeks pregnant with a boy. They were filled with joy to show the world their first son. About 9 hours after Felicia was rushed to the hospital the baby had finally come out, weighing a mighty 10 pounds. Emmanuel and Felicia had already come up with a name before the baby was born. They name the child “Divine” because to them his birth was divinely given and a gift from God. They also had named him Divine because his birth was a miracle. Because he weighed about 10 pounds, the doctors insisted that the baby be delivered by C-Section. Emmanuel and Felicia trusted God that the newborn would be born naturally and without any complications. When the baby was born the relatives and family members of both Emmanuel and Felicia were present at the birth. When the baby was brought home 2 days later the baby was clothed in a blue blanket most of the time The Summer of 2006 was a major time for sports, terrorism and space discovery; The USA Basketball Team would go to Japan for the championship, London Metropolitan Police make 21 arrests in connection to a terrorist attack that involved aircraft traveling from the UK to the US, Space Shuttle Discovery is launched to the ISS.
The summer of 2006 was an important time for terrorism and war. In early August, the terrorist organization, Al-Qaeda, was planning an attack on 7 planes departing from the UK to the US and Canada. “The Department of Homeland Security here in the U.S. is announcing a ban on liquids being carried onto airplanes, and that includes drinks, beverages, hair gels, lotions. It does not include, it appears at this time, baby formula. In Britain, they're stopping almost all the carry-on items.” (O’Brien) This was a huge step for air safety. These rules definitely lowered terrorist events later on in airplanes. Rewind a couple weeks and here we are in the Hezbollah-Israel War. This war took place because of the 2006 Hezbollah cross-border raid. This war lasted a month long from July 12 to August 14. “Well, we can see it. We can hear it. And we can feel it. It is getting much more tense along this border. In the hills behind me there are Israeli troops with their armored vehicles, with their tanks, getting ready at the border.” (Newton) On July 12, 2006 Hezbollah fighters fired rockets at Israeli border towns as a diversion for an anti-tank missile attack on two armored Humvees patrolling the Israeli side of the border fence. This conflict left 3 soldiers dead. 2 Israeli soldiers were abducted and kidnapped. Hezbollah demanded the release of Lebanese prisoners held by Israel in exchange for the release of the abducted soldiers. Israel refused and responded with airstrikes and bombs. The conflict between Hezbollah and Israel killed around 1,200 Lebanese citizens.
