Our lives have become so busy that it is easy to forget why we exist. But God never forgets us and continues to test our faith in ways which are not always obvious. Even though our church has been without a space of its own, the strength of our faith kept us going even if it meant borrowing a space from a church of other faith during the last five years. After carefully evaluating the whole situation we have realized that having our own building will not only help us practice our faith more efficiently but will also help us invite more people to experience our faith and realize what they may have been missing in their lives.
Hello, it’s me, Nikhil. I am writing to you after all this time to apologize to you for the way things happened between us when we broke up, and to explain to you a little bit about me so you will hopefully understand why I did some of the things I did. I always felt really bad about how our relationship ended, and I don’t feel like I ever really told you some of the things I was dealing with when we split, or some of the things I had to deal with when I was growing up. Because of my heritage I have spent a lot of my life trying to figure out who I am, and how I fit in with American culture even though I am come from a background that is very different from the way a lot of people I know grew up.
I am writing to you to apologize for our abrupt breakup, which has probably left you with some unanswered questions. I know that you may not understood why I left, but hopefully this letter will be able to explain to you why I left, and why I wrote you this letter.
My Dear Maxine,
I hope you are fine and is in great health as you receive this.
I know it has been years and writing you suddenly right now might seem a little bit awkward. I know I feel awkward about this as well, but I do feel strongly about the need to talk to you again.
I am writing to apologize to you for the way that we ended up, and for some of the things I said and did to you. It is important to me that you understand a little bit about where I was coming from and why I did some of the things I did. The only way I can think of to do that is to explain how much the time we spent together meant to me, and why I came to realize that things could never work out for us in the long run. I know that when people break up they often say things like “it’s not you, it’s me.” In this case that happens to be the truth. There was nothing that you did wrong, or could have done differently. In fact, I still remember you with much love and respect. I don’t know if you ever expected to hear from me again, or if you care to read about any of the things I want to tell you, but I always felt like you deserved an apology and an explanation from me about my behavior.
I do hope this letter would reach you in good condition. I know that this confession is quite out of the blue, but I might as well say it before you’d hear it from anybody else. Above everything, I would be the first one from whom you should hear my decision from.
I do not even know where to begin Maxine other than to tell you how sorry I am for how things ended. It is me, Gogol. I will introduce myself that way because that is my true name. I was born Gogol Ganguli, son of Ashoke and Ashime Ganguli. Before I left for college, I changed my name from Gogol to Nikhil in an attempt to flee from the past that I could not associate with any longer. You knew me as Nikhil when we met, but at that time, I did not even know myself. I was not either Gogol nor Nikhil. Gogol was my Indian heritage, with which I did not associate, and Nikhil was an American facade I had created for myself. I was a lost, lost soul Maxine, trying to find my way in a brand new and eye-opening culture.
I apologize for how things ended. I want to explain to you as best I can for my actions, but I understand if you never want to speak to me again. Since I was a child I have been searching for who I truly was inside. You knew me as Nikhil, my family knew me as Gogol, but I did not know who I was, and I think that while we were dating, I may have used you to try to find out more about myself.
Throughout centuries, there have been scholars and teachers looking for ways to develop systems in education where they are able to plan for goals in what they want their students or followers to comprehend. “Curriculum is an attempt to communicate the essential principles and features of an educational proposal in such a form that is open to critical scrutiny and capable of effective translation into practice.” (Stenhouse, 1975) The ideal of the curriculum is not new, yet it was not formerly named until centuries ago, now it is an essential part of every education outlet in the world. In accomplishing anything worthwhile as far as education, big and small, is dependent on the completion of goals outlined. An effective curriculum offers all these things as it provides teachers, students, and administrators with the framework and sense of progression.

To Whom It May Concern,
I am writing to you to kindly request a reconsideration of the admission decision. I hope to utilize this opportunity to explain why I had low GPA during the first few years of high school which has prevented me from meeting the admission requirements at Florida Gulf Coast University.
Many thanks for allowing me the opportunity to carry out a phone interview with you last Thursday. The way you treated me over the phone was very professional indeed and I have to say that I felt extremely at ease with the whole process and as such was able to deliver answers to all the questions with precision and flair. I would like to pay my thanks for such a professional interview. I feel proud that you have given me a chance to be heard and an opportunity to show my skills for your valued job. The opportunity you gave me is really worthy for me and I look forward to work with your esteemed organization.
When I came to America, I had only two dreams; to build a future for myself and to help my family. I worked hard day and night for the day you will come to America and become my greatest support. I still remember the happiness I felt upon receiving you at the airport because I finally had a brother and a friend I could rely upon. I still believe in you because it is an elder brother’s job to believe in his younger siblings and not give up hope.
I have always believed in your intelligence and potential. This is why I brought you to the U.S. and spent thousands of dollars of my own money so that you will go to college and achieve in life that no one in the family has ever done. Whatever happened in the past is done and there is no use in thinking about it. But one thing still remains the same and that is my belief in you and your potential.
