Now, everything was gone. First his friends, then his family, and now his career. Alvin was drenched in a deep sweat, worrying about what is next to come for him. He went home to think about life, and saw glimpses of his childhood life again, where he didn’t have to care for a family, or run a business, and it all seemed simpler. He lied back in his bed and looked up at the ceiling, falling asleep.
Strong for Us The room was hot with body heat and outside air seeping in through the thin walls. The smell of sweat hovered over everyone as they lay on the floor. If someone coughed or snored everybody could hear it, the next room too. Families huddled together to sleep, inches from the strangers next to them. “Sardines!
One of the ways that the theme is demonstrated in Night is when Elie Wiesel is in a camp and he is going to sleep and then the next day he gets a bowl of thick soup. This relates to the theme because although they are in a camp they still sometimes get the essentials
The definition of poverty is the state of being extremely poor. The Walls family fit that definition to the T. In Battle Mountain, they had no money for furniture so they had to improvise. “We kids each slept in a big cardboard box.” (Walls 52) Even though they were sleeping in cardboard boxes, they still liked going to bed in them because it made it seem like an adventure. The family always had very little to nothing in the house to eat. One day Lori and Jeannette both mixed margarine with sugar and ate it.
Huckleberry Finn makes a lot of choices in the Adventures of Huckleberry Finn some bad, some good, there are all kinds of decisions to make, but with each decision that Huck makes, leads him to different outcomes and consequences throughout his journey. Huck makes many choices throughout the book, like when he decided to escape from Pap’s cabin in chapter 6, because Pap’s beatings were getting too brutal for him to handle so he decides to saw a whole in the wall behind a big blanket, which he works on every time Pap leaves the cabin. After he gets the whole cut out, the next day he finds a canoe floating down the river, he takes the canoe and hides it and escapes when Pap leaves for the night to go drinking. Following his escape Huck takes all of the cabin’s supply’s and puts it all in the canoe and intelligently makes it look like he was murdered by cutting off some of his hair and killing a wild hog to use the blood to make it look believable.
“Ahh, a nice warm bed with no worries anymore,” I thought as I dozed off to sleep. Then I was being forced roughly out of the window I came through, and throne on the ground. “ We got you now boy, and we know it was you who took the pistol.” Dewberry Wallace spa. “Now tell us wheres it is, you theivin’ nigra.” I could barely breathe let alone speak, so I whispered that I wasn’t the one who stole it and it was the Simms, but Kaleb pounded my ribs so hard I couldn’t help but cry out with pain. “Tell us boy or we’ll hand you right on this tree in front of your family and never bring you down.” R.W.

In “Abuelito Who” (Cisneros, line 5, 11, and 14) “is too sad to come downstairs today”, “sleeps in his little room all day and night”, and “is a doorknob tied to a sour stick” all are examples of how the he neglects himself, rather than a family portraying the dastardly deed. However, the two pieces of writing are similar by, spreading the same lesson to the readers of all ages, which is to treat others the way you want to be treated. Also, referred to as the “Golden Rule” allows us to realize that we need to show compassion to one another and admire other people 's unique

People tend to try to stay as close to those relationships and attempt to make the good relationships last, making friendship become part of their morals. This being said, when someone starts gain power, they are mostly able to keep their morals. In the book Night--a story about the firsthand experience of a boy who lives through The Holocaust written by Elie Wiesel--Elie and his father are in the notorious concentration camp Auschwitz. Elie’s father asks one of the guards where the bathroom is and, “he dealt my father such a clout that he fell to the ground, crawling back to his place on all fours”(48). Elie was so surprised and fear stricken that he did not even react to it, but he stated, “I thought only: I shall never forgive them for that”(48).
They also had classroom-like training where they were all gathered in a large auditorium and lectured on survival skills that were needed in case of war My Grandpa says he only remembers one instructor; he doesn’t remember his name but he does remember him being a lot nicer than most of the other instructors. The reason any of the instructors would be harassing the soldiers would be for the benefit of the soldiers to prepare for the harsh conditions of war. My grandpa told me he didn’t have too much trouble getting through training. He said “You had to get through it, if you didn’t get through it they would send you back to basic
“We lay in our bunk terribly weakened sick with colds and diarrhea. My brother was shivering and sweating. Next to him, I kept dozing.” (Page 138) In this quote, it shows how sanitized it was back then. During those times, especially for the Jews since the Germans wouldn’t help them, there wasn’t medicine that could really cure whatever they had…instead, the elderly in the house would always say that home remedies like herbs for example would help cure most sicknesses. There wasn’t air conditioning either so when you were hot, you had no choice but to stay like that.
After spending a mostly sleepless night on the couch, I was groggy and yet still decidedly firm in the decision I had come to last night, lying there awake, staring at the ceiling. I had to know what was going on, or at least find out as much more as I could, without seeming too nosy or obvious. The likely source for this had at first seemed to be Gordon Hapsboro, studio owner Wilton Willis ' head assistant, but chances are he probably knew too much and would get suspicious if I started questioning. So I crossed off names mentally down the Antamount food chain and had landed on Jack Furrow and Brandon Shuman, the two guys who were overseeing the script and producing my film for Antamount. They might not know everything that was going on behind the scenes at the studio, but they could at least help in putting a lot of my fears to rest and convince me that I was just
