Hammurabi’s code interfered with others lives, prevented protection of the weak and created fear among the people. To begin with, Hammurabi’s code of law was unjust because it interfered with others lives. A mesopotamian man was allowed to disown his son whenever he pleased. Also, If the son hits his father, his hands will be cut off (Document C). It is unjust because Hammurabi did not consider the consequences that came with the law.
A lot of the surgeries that were used were not brand new, and had been used before. However, many of them were not as common practice before the war than after. The most recognized surgery of the Civil War was amputation. Day after day doctors cut off the arms and legs of patients. The surgery only took around 10 minutes, and limbs were thrown on top of a pile that sometimes reached five feet tall.
Gene wanted Finny to get in trouble for what Finny had did, which had worn his tie as a belt. He hated that Finny got away with almost anything that he did wrong and wanted to go down someday. Another way their relationship is affected is through Gene’s lack of self-finding and liking. Gene hated that he never was like Finny, so he started to acting and do things that Finny did. That caused a lot of jealousy, guilt, and self-destruction from throughout the relationship that Gene and Finny had.
The doctor had said that he mustn't get too excited, too hot, too cold, or too tired and that he must always be treated gently.” Another reason he seems to hate Doodle is because he is ashamed of him and how he can’t walk. All this boy cares about is looking good in other people’s eyes. He can’t stand the idea of someone not liking him because of him brother.
I had low self-esteem (still do but it’s improving) as well as low self-image. I did not feel good about my body and was very self-conscious about what others thought of my body. In middle school, I was referred to as the ‘fat kid’. I also started puberty earlier than all my classmates, which did not help.
However most teen girls are not happy with they look like. 42% of girls in grades 1-3 want to be thinner(Waynshteyn). This means that they start wanting their bodies to look different at a very young age. “You do not need to chop off half of half of a womens thigh off to advertise a product”(Waynshteyn). This means that you do not need to change any part of your body just to show something off to the world or to feel good about themselves.
As a character odysseus has flaws so naturally this would transfer over to his leadership skills . During the encounters with both polyphemus and circe, odysseus exhibits weak leadership. After getting trapped by polyphemus him and his men devise a solution to escape, once they have escape odysseus endangers the lives all his men by aggravation polyphemus; “I would not heed them in my glorying spirit, but let my anger flare and yelled” (IX 545 555). Odysseys is selfish and does not think of anything but his pride when he is angering polyphemus. His anger clouds his judgment and even if he did consider the consequences he does not stop even though what he is saying is endangering the lives of his men.
Another characterization on Burris is that he can sometimes be very rude. Burris was right next to Miss Caroline and he shook his hair and tons of lice came falling out. Miss Caroline got really frightened and quickly got mad at Burris. He insulted Miss Caroline by yelling at her and making her cry in front of the whole first grade class. Burris causes a lot of trouble due to his lack of caring
I thought how Phoebe and all the other little kids would see it, and how they 'd wonder what the hell it meant, and then finally some dirty kid would tell them--all cockeyed, naturally--what it meant, and how they 'd all think about it and maybe even worry about it for a couple of days,” (201). Holden sees that even the places where a child should be safe from the bad effects of the outside world like the elementary school have been corrupted by adulthood. He worries that the children in the elementary school like his sister would have their innocence taken from them by this because they become slowly more exposed to profanities and other problems of adulthood, the complete opposite of what he wants for them. He removes the writing on the wall and continues on his way, but encounters more profanity. Salinger writes, “I went down by a different staircase, and I saw another "Fuck you" on the wall.
Continuation school students are seen to be the “ bad kids “ that dont belong with regular students at a normal school. The bad kids who don't care about education or any rules that are implemented in their school system. Another stereotype super passing bad kids is that only expellies and kids that get suspended multiple times attend continuation schools. Garrett-Hatfield then explains who also attends alternative schools’ “Many states have alternative schools, sometimes called "continuation schools," for children who have been suspended long term or expelled from their mainstream public schools.” This stereotype has been also circulating the reputation of students that attend these schools.
With all of these injuries sports are giving kids, they are having to be taken out of school. So, the injuries are forcing them to go to the doctors and take time off of school or stay at home because of the pain which then is making them miss time. 3.5 million kids 14 and under just in the U.S. are injured by sports a year (according to Stanford Children 's Health). Coaches are also known for making athletes go to the doctors during school so that they don’t miss any time during practice. This means that the parents are putting their child behind in school for sports!
In the podcast “Lower Income, Higher Ed” NPR reporter Cuvvy Perpaterson ( I believe that’s what she said) discussed the issues high school students in D.C. face while applying and attending University. Perpaterson describes her interaction with one teenager; Christopher. He is a first-generation college student. “Christopher grew up in one of the poorest parts of Washington, D.C. He and his mother went through frequent bouts of homelessness when he went to high school — often staying in shelters.”
As Walter lowered himself slowly onto the folding chair he looked up at Scotty who was lost in a fuzzy haze of tears and smudged Clark Kent glasses. His constant wiping of his nose meant constant cleaning of his glasses and when he cried he was nearly blind. Walter reached up and took his friend's tray, then grabbing him gently by the elbow, guided him into his seat. The table had been provided by Mrs. Marchant, the lunch room monitor, after several failed attempts to force assimilation of the two misfits into one of the hybrid tables. "Blow your nose, man.
Desideratum Charles R. Swindoll once said, “Life is 10% what happens to you and 90% how you react to it” (Swindoll). Life is your own hero's journey, full of tasks and trials. It will throw curveballs at you to try to throw you off the path you wish to follow. In my hero journey, my desideratum kept me on the right path. A desideratum is a guiding belief that help you through your journey of life.
