In the poem “Those Winter Sundays,” by Robert Hayden, the visual imagery is seeing that the child might be thankful for everything their father does for them, but he/she does not show it as much as they should. In the poem there is proof when he says, “No one ever thanked him”(Line 5). This meant as if the child regretted it as they got older because they said, “What did I know, what did I know of love’s austere and lonely offices” (Line 13-14). They felt the parents had a duty to take care of their children no matter what and how ungrateful they seemed to be. In the beginning the poem is abruptly because the second word “too”, of the very first line of the poem assumes actions that has previously being going on before.

Captain Thomas Preston was a British officer stationed in Massachusetts staying in a home with other soldiers under the Quartering Act. They were banging on things with clubs yelling “Fire if you dare”.

For example, in the months leading up to the event, the attacker fought a student in the school cafeteria and threw a chair against the wall of a classroom.

Cleamon Moorer demonstrates God’s unique work in his life by segmenting his story into five tracks: Off Track, New Track, Fast track, Tenure track, and Back Track. All of these segmented tracks reiterate important lessons, but the Off Track and Backtrack segments present the most valuable life lessons to me because during these tracks, the author reveals deeply of his humility, gratitude, and compassion. After his exit from DMI because of failure, Cleamon Moorer returns home downtrodden and has a conversation with his father about the future plans. His father advises him, “Life is hard, ain’t nobody giving away anything. If you really want something wort having, you have to sacrifice for it.
I believe that Jourdan Anderson’s letter was reasonably forgiving but he is not going to forget the trauma that he dealt with for thirty-two years. For example, he will never forget the times his master shot him and how he handled his children in the past. The letter he wrote is very well stated with decent English for a former slave. He mentioned some excellent points explaining why he would or would not come back to work at his previous living quarters. Although he misses the family he was a servant for he is still wary and unsure about if he can trust them.

Bueller’s attitude towards education is very similar to students in this generation and that is because education in the 21st century is a mess. Schools are focused on standardized testing, and regular testing which make up a large portion of the students grades.
