JD bemoans the absence of justice, expressed when he speaks back to the “jocks” of the school. He is not afraid of defending himself, as the other students are. When Heather Chandler tells Veronica to write a counterfeit letter from Kurt to Martha Dunstock, although Veronica hesitates with her response she ends up acquiescing to Heather’s low level status and forges the letter. Unlike the other characters, JD doesn’t try to become accepted. The first day he joins Westerberg High, he sits at a table with someone else who is sleeping.

“All Summer in a Day” Thematic Essay The short story “All Summer in a Day,” written by Ray Bradbury, depicts a dystopian world on Venus revolving around the struggles the main character, Margot, faces. Margot suffers from constant bullying by her classmates, who despise her in part because she is the only person on Venus who remembers how the sun looks and feels, due to the fact that on Venus, the sun only comes up for two hours every seven years. An important theme built from this fact that Bradbury emphasizes is jealousy and its effects on human conduct, which is greatly supported by certain events in the story and can easily be implemented into daily life.
The choices made at the end of each story were made due to characters pride getting the best of them and can be predicted to harm them in the future. After walking away from Miss Moore, Sylvia thinks about the day and claims “ain’t nobody gonna beat me at nuthin” (Bambara 6). Throughout the story, Sylvia has pessimistic thoughts that may affect her future. By not admitting she learned something, it can be inferred that her pride will not allow her to acknowledge the lesson. Due to this, Sylvia may suffer a fall in her life, such as the quotation, “pride comes before Destruction” suggests.
Part of the reason Holden does not call his sister, Phoebe, is due to his “parents being the ones that answered the phone” (77). Holden finds protection in avoiding talking to anybody, which results in isolation. This event contributes to plot development as after refusing to call anybody, Holden continues to make excuses for things he should be doing, but does not. With each of Holden’s excuses, new adventures arrive, thus thickening and developing the
This is so unique because Leo explains that, “You almost never get [an intense stare such as Stargirl’s] from people,” and this evidently surprised him. This tells us that people in his school prefer to stay fairly contained. I infer that they do not want to stand out that much, because if they did then they would stare at people similar to the way Stargirl did. But, because Leo says that you almost never get this stare from anyone, it shows us that no one in his school is daring to stand out, and that his school’s culture is very shy.
Holden is extremely kind to Jane Gallagher not only because she’s innocent but also because he thinks he can help her keep her innocence by being her friend and punching Stradlater before he takes her on a

If people didn’t get bothered than they would be happy and not know what to expect, because if no one in the entire world got bothered they wouldn 't have the knowing of how to be an actual human. In the book Fahrenheit 451 I am pretty sure that all the characters got bothered so when something happened they were use to it and didn’t get that worked up over it. So when Millie left Montag he was sad but later found out that he did not want anything to do with her. Therefore if people do get bothered they will so figure out what they don 't need and why the thing that happened is a good thing, that no one can change. You just have to keep living you life and see things on the positive side.

A true hero does not disrespect others’ differences. In other words, a true hero is not rude or acting in a negative way to others who do not share common traits with them. In everyday life, this non-heroic action will look like being racist and not holding the door for them, mock a new classmate, or even bully someone. Well in the short story “All Summer in a Day” by Ray Bradbury, a group of nine year old students demonstrated this non-heroic trait. Unlike those nine year old students who were born and raised on Venus, Margot was born and raised on Earth until she settled on Venus five years earlier with her parents.
During fair time I knew people were talking about me but not in the nice way. I knew most they hated me, I knew some were being fake, I knew some just wanted out of this because it didn’t involve them.

I spent most of the night with Jesse just hanging out and having fun. We went on the ferris wheel even though Jesse is scared of heights.
