When I read this story the only thing I could think about was bravery, and how one man risked his life for what he thought was right. This story follows a medical resident doctor who traveled to Gettysburg for a casual getaway. On his car ride home, he witnessed a horrific car crash right before his eyes. The small pickup truck in front of him was struck in a violent collision by a Ford Bronco during its attempted left turn. While the driver of the Bronco seemed relatively unscathed, the driver of the pickup suffered the brunt of the accident.
Yet, a notable person who overcame these obstacles and made the most out of his experiences was Malcolm X. He made a dramatic change not only in American history but in African American rights. From the beginning of Malcolm X’s life he saw the injustices in the country of America, he was only a kid innocent to the world around him. His father was supposedly killed in a car accident, but Malcolm and his family believe that he was murdered by the Black Legion, which was a group of white racist. Even worse the officials claimed that his father had committed suicide, which prevented his family from inheriting the life insurance money.
The Brennans were a fairly well like family in Mumbilli. That was up until Daniel, the eldest son, crashed his car under the influence of alcohol that killed two of his friends and rendered his cousin Fin a quadriplegic. The Story of Tom Brennan follows the lives of Daniel’s family after the incident and the amount of pain and suffering they went through. The story has a heavy focus on Daniel’s younger brother and year eleven student Tom and his life with all of the torment and pain. “Everything we do in life affects others.” (pg 131) Daniel’s actions on the night of the crashed changed the lives of his family forever.
This creates a risky environment for both. In the poem it states, “They are prisoners of speed.” This means that the drivers have to go fast or else they will be hated by all the other drivers. Theodore then shows the consequence of this, which is a deadly car crash. The driver, a plant worker, finally gets an escape from the machines through death. This illustrates the societal ill of “Highway: Michigan”.
dea” Mitch Walker,host of the Monday Night Results Show on Performance Motorsports Network and longtime NASCAR fan who has been involved in racing since the 60s and 70s says it all started when NASCAR let Jeff Gordon into the chase following controversy surrounding the end of the Richmond race in 2013 where Clint Bowyer intentionally spun his car out in order to cause a caution so that team mate Brian Vickers could pit which kept Gordon out of the chase only to be reinserted later by NASCAR CEO Brian France and that by making the change for Gordon ,”Brian France opened the door for the circus that erupted.” Walker goes on to point out a fact ,that Busch was injured in an Xfinity Series race (if you are not familiar with NASCAR,Xfinity in the second tier series) and that it would be different if Busch had been injured in a Sprint Cup Series race and that because of the fact that Busch was injured in an Xfinity race he should not be eligible for the chase where as if he had been injured in a cup race “sure,let him race his way in.” Walker also brings up a point that i echo and that is,a lot of fans are not in favor of drivers “stepping down” from Sprint Cup to Xfinity or to Camping World Truck Series as those series are for young drivers to get acquainted with the machines before heading to Sprint Cup Series racing and that by drivers like Busch going down to the lower tier series it is taking chances away from the drivers who are regulars in those series such as Ryan Reed,

I could hear my mom on the phone arguing with someone. I heard her saying “We can’t wait that long for an appointment, if yall don’t help us now, he will die.” My dad was driving so fast, some people might’ve thought he was drag racing. We were racing in a way, only we were racing against time. When we finally arrived, we rushed him to the doctor. He told us that Dallas had suffered a stroke and that his brain was failing.
First and foremost, I believe that everyone can work together and not fight all the time. What is sad is that when people are getting killed by their race like the 17 year old Brian ogle suffered 3 skull fractures after getting beaten up at an ace hardware store in the parking lot on September 30.Police arrested Quartez Walker 20 years,Bobby Brown 19 years,La Noah Ealy jr.18 years and Daceon Nix,20 years.The stupid thing is that he got beaten up just for saying blue lives matter on facebook. It just scares me to see a 17 year old kid getting beaten up for just saying that blue lives matter.
