be, it also teaches you the consequences of the acts you make that affect in many things in your life. I also saw that different social class type of people cannot be too friends with each other because they didn`t like each other because they were different from each other. I liked the point of view of the story because it was a first person point of view and the narrator was a boy living in gang that was in a war, it really was interesting that the narrator was only twelve years old and he wanted to fight in rumbles and do things people in gangs do, he was very
While bias is usually unavoidable and imagination is necessary to a historian, Schama makes use of his own beliefs too often and holds these beliefs above fact. His story about the murder disregarded important evidence that could lead to a completely different conclusion. He completely fabricated entire conversations that led directly to the murder in question. Though Schama did admit that his interpretation was “imaginative truth”, his credit as a historian can easily be called into question. His methods sway towards fiction and several historians, some within the documentary, cite this as an issue.
Before the rumble Ponyboy realized the difference between his gang and the Socs.“That was the difference between his gang and ours- they had a leader and were organized; we were just buddies who stuck together- each man was his own leader. (Hinton 138)”. The Socs were just a group of adolescents together for social reasons and were engaging delinquent behavior. The greasers stood up for more than that; they stood up for Johnny, for the hard times they’ve been through, for their respect. Even though Johnny was going through his last hours alive he did not want to see his mother, he wanted to see his family: the gang.
And he cut them open often enough that The Officials were on to him. Russo hadn 't actually been warned by them -- no one ever warns a serial killer -- but he had noticed men in sharp-looking uniforms, watching him. He still believed it was worth it. The microchip, Russo thought, was the source of all violence in the world. He figured that the people should learn, rather than having an implant to do all the thinking for them.
Violence was much more powerful than we imagine not only because it led tremendous dis- aster, but also due to the deep impact on individuals. In the book of the Outsiders, the violence of Johnny’s family, the other greasers, and their opposing gangs, the Socials, strongly affected Johnny. The Violence of Johnny’s family impacts Johny’s natural instincts, which means that some of his characteristics were already fixed since he was born, and influenced him in daily life. Johnny grew up in a family without care, love, and understanding. From his parents, he barely gained the warmth of being in a complete family.
The death came as a shock to me as well, even after watching the whole series countless times and knowing the plot from the heart. But even so the death didn’t mean anything to me. I always thought that it was only natural for death to occur, and that it was a normal thing to deal with in life. This was my sheltered, and inexperienced point of view, and I didn’t realize
However, Jayden noticed that the combat on the planet was not very advanced due to the sloppily done killing of the street urchin. So, if Owen was one of the biggest and strongest, Jayden thought he could easily take him and even beat Gavin, whoever he is. Jayden believed this due to the fact that he was actually very good at combat. A prodigy, almost. He learned from a man named Liam, a man like Jayden’s father after Jayden’s real father had been murdered.
As Andrew Jackson slowly rose to the complete power of president, controversy over his motives arose as well. Born in 1767 in South Carolina to a poverty-ridden family and an absent father, Jackson became one of the most debated presidents ever. His hot temper and self-reliance seemed to appeal to the people, yet his inability to take criticism and advice did not go unnoticed by the country’s government. To the bare eye he was a war hero, but if you dug deeper, you would discover he was a murderer, he was the common people’s choice, yet he seemed to not care about any other race besides his own. With these opposing characteristics, Jackson became the center of many debates and conflicts, hero or villain?
The cocaine surprised many people. Len was always known to stay away from drugs and alcohol. The family of Len was shocked. Len Bias had a tragic death, but he did it to himself by having cocaine. The life and death has been just an amazing and sad story.
Excluded from the Boy Scouts, stopped regularly by the police, and feared by much of the LA population, they felt alienated from the rest of the world. However, the gang was supportive and like-minded, giving them a home in the racist, angry world. Though the first gang was created for a sense of family, later gangs formed out of obligation and a need for protection. People rarely left their ten block radius, lest they be found in another gang’s territory. Murder, drive-bys and revenge were a regular event in the LA neighborhoods, affecting every
