Wallace, David Foster "This is Water" Kenyon College Commencement Speech 2005 In the speech "This is Water" David Foster Wallace attempts to explain how the general populace is self-centered and what a person can do to change the "default setting" within our mind. Wallace's main point is to get his audience to understand and realize that they have a daily choice to make between being inconsiderate and acknowledging those around them.

Wallace uses various examples to explain and expand his argument.

The form that “Good Form” is talking about is how O’ Brien writes, whether it be to tell the truth, about his inability to look at the person that was killed, or to attach a face and a purpose, and make him seem braver that way or even change the story in some way. O’ Brien can answer his daughters questions in multiple ways because he is the one that is telling the story, he is the narrator, and we are left to either believe what he says in his book, or put it down and reflect on what is real and what isn’t. O’ Brien even states clearly that “I can look at things I never looked at. I can attach faces to grief and love and pity and God. I can be brave.
In Night and MAUS, Wiesel and Spiegelman attempt to outline the impact of the varying reactions the Jewish population had about the same idea of fathers and sons. This can relate to society as a whole in the sense that decisions of people with the same morals and principals can not be compared in a setting as mitigating as such. However, the effect is just as great on the individual. Elie stresses the guilt he feels every day for being so inconsiderate for his father despite his plight. Artie alludes to the difficulty he has writing the book he intended for his readers.

A social work interview should consist primarily of open-ended questions as it encourages clients to elaborate on their responses. Social workers should also establish they understand the client 's replies by asking follow-up questions to acknowledge the client 's comments and encourage them to continue (Williams, n.d.). Upon reflecting on the interview process, I felt that I failed to achieve this. Because I realised that some parts of my interview lack the depth that I was hoping to achieve. I think that the main reason would be that I was impatient as my concern was to finish the interview
The big Issues To overlook the significance of rather trivial and simple tasks as well as phrases can be a normal occurrence. Imbedded in many of these tasks and sayings can hide profound meaning and symbolism. Often times these doings, which can hold great meaning, are demonstrated by an unlikely group in society –the adolescents. In the short essay “My Children Explain the Big Issues” written by will Baker, he confirms this phenomenon’s presence through stories of his own children.
In the articles that I read from the book "Somebody told me" by Rick Bragg, the characters faced many different issues. Some of the issues were significant while others weren't as important but all of the issues were important. All three articles had three types of issues the people were facing. In the articles, the individuals faced struggles because of the type of people they were, because of the need to provide for their family, and because of loss of a family member.
Do you go against the grain? Is going against the grain necessarily as superior quality? Oscar Wilde explained that disobedience is a great human virtue and it inspires social progression in history.

Look Me in the Eye, a memoir by John Elder Robison, describes Robison’s life in detail growing up with Asperger’s, a form of autism. Ever since he could talk, Robison displayed unusual behaviors: often times Robison made inappropriate comments and was intermittently prone to violent outbursts. Since Asperger’s was not recognized in the 1960s, Robison was not diagnosed until the age of 40. However, Robison was able to overcome his label of “social deviant” and developed a knack for engineering, successfully maintaining a career and a family (Robison). John Elder Robison did not receive any form of treatment; he developed alternative ways to cope with his cognitive issue.
In their lifetime, people will doubt who they are and question how life would have turned out had they made different choices or acted differently. In the poem “Ask Me”, the poet William Stafford uses literary devices to deliver a message: we must accept that sometimes what happens in life is out of our control, and that we should trust fate to help shape our lives and our inner selves.
