Zach's Intorduction

My name is Zach Nappi, and I hail from Ostrander Ohio. I am currently majoring in Public Affairs with a possible double major in Business. I plan to get a career as a manager or consultant for a non-profit organization. I would like to do as much as I can to help people, mostly because of my Christian background. I am currently involved in several groups at my church, including helping middle school aged kids with their faith, as well as college group for learning more about our faith. For fun, I enjoy kayaking, hiking and exploring the great outdoors. Every year I go out to Washington and hike Mount Rainier, and explore the country side. One of my life plans is to see all 57 National Parks.I am also fascinated with history. Especially, the history of warfare and of American History in general. But the Civil War and the events of WWII have to be the two wars I know most about. 

From the Essay Connection, Wiesel quotes, "I am duty-bound to serve as their emissary, transmitting the history of their disappearance, even if it disturbs, even if it brings pain" (17). This stuck to me because of the importance and suffering that this man had to endure while composing and writing about the most dramatic and genocidal event in human history. Not many people, aside from the ones who lived through it and survived, can be brave enough to write about such a heart-piercing time in our history. For Wiesel, he feels that he is determined, whether by God, or to remember those who were lost, to write about theses horrific events and sufferings of the thousands he saw die. So he says that it his is duty to transmit the history of their disappearance so that they never be forgot and that this many never be repeated.
Attempting stand-up comedy...
