The Grandmother even goes as far to bargain with him for her life, promising she will ”give [the Misfit] all the money [she had]!(PAGE NUMBER)” Throughout the story she has appeared quite self-centered, such as when she manipulated June Star and John Wesley into convincing their father to go to the Grandmother’s old house by promising there was “a secret panel (PAGE NUMBER)” filled with silver. The instance of her begging for mercy is no different. She chooses to beg for her life through manipulation instead of expressing concern or sadness for her murdered relatives. The Grandmother’s egocentric actions only add to the irony of the Misfit referring to her as a “good woman (PAGE
My name is Babazile Jessica Zondi; I am seventeen years old of age. I am a student at the Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy for Girls and I am also a citizen concerned about the injustice of Elsie Morare’s arrest. Elsie killed her abusive husband by strangling him with the help of her nephew and his friend; she believed that was the ‘only way to end the abuse’. It must have taken a lot of abuse for her to believe that the only way to end the abuse was through strangling him. I am writing to ask that Elsie Morare is pardoned from the rest of her sentence.

For instance, she was planning on killing Rikki-Tikki and the family so that she and Nag could be king and queen of the garden (paragraphs 49-51). This proves she’s selfish because she wanted to kill them just so she and her family could live happily. This event doesn’t display the theme because even though she had the courage to kill Rikki-Tikki and the family, she didn’t achieve her goal. In addition, Nagaina threatens to kill Teddy again as revenge because Rikki-Tikki killed Nag (paragraph 84). This shows that Nagaina is wicked because she is threatening to kill a little boy, but fails anyway because Rikki-Tikki defeats her.

People may say that Don John can change, and he just needs some time to learn from his lesson. However, Don John’s lies harmed the people around him when he committed a serious crime that shamed Claudio, Don Pedro, and Hero. Even after he knew what he had done wrong he “fled from Messina.”
In July of 1848, Lucretia Mott and Elizabeth Cady Stanton organized the first women's rights movement in Seneca Falls, New York where women spoke up about how they deserved better education, employment, and to be able to have a political say. “The strongest reason why we ask for woman a voice in the government under which she lives; in the religion she asked to believe; the quality and social life... A place in the trades and professions... Is because of her birthright self-sovereignty,” were the words of Elizabeth Cady Stanton in 1892 that inspired many women to join the fight. Another argument these women used was that they would create a maternal commonwealth.
If couples want fewer children to be raising their children better, they can use natural methods of contraception. They could not use artificial methods or any medication to avoid and abortion. I knew Margaret Sanger was a famous nurse who devoted her life to legalizing birth control and making it universally for women.

However, women began to speak out for their beliefs and slowly but surely, a women’s rights movement arose.
Bonnie Docherty does not support the idea of using robot for warfares due to moral issues. She states :”It would undermine human dignity to be killed by a machine that can’t understand the value of human life.”. She also convokes the ban on the use of robots in war “before humanity crosses what she calls a moral threshold.”. She emphasizes how these machines will completely change the way of war like what gunpowder and nuclear have done.
