An example of the diction of Jefferson would be, ‘”I ain’t hongry” (pg. 137). Neither did Jefferson, in the eyes of the reader and Grant, have proper and educated talk. I loved reading the different styles Mr. Gaines had presented through his writing of in how a character
At the end of the book his father's dies and he doesn't feel anything for him. Elie says “I did not weep, and it pained me… deep inside me, if I could searched the recesses of my feeble conscience, I might have found something like: Free at last!....”(Wiesel p112).

In the articles I have read about Martin Luther King Jr and Malcolm X I have noticed these men have very different styles on how they want to help with segregation. Malcolm was about self defence and to fight back. But Martin Luther King Jr was all about no violence and not fighting back. He believed that the best way to protest was to have a silent protest.

Responsibilities define a human. From cleaning a house to raising a child, responsibilities give people a purpose, and therefore having these responsibilities affect one’s behavior, personality, relationships, and happiness.
