Being drunk causes people to not think about their decisions, and if he really did kill Mama, there is no reversing that. Even after that moment, he doesn't stop drinking, though. Even out of Manzanar, he almost makes another hasty decision and regrets even thinking that, that scares him away from drinking. “A few months later he had almost killed himself on a combination of whiskey and red wine...when he started vomiting blood from his mouth and nose. It sobered him up permanently.

Weeks went by, then years, Jermaine then turns to the habit of drinking.
‘Steven, my gardener mixed cocaine with my everyday diet for about a month. I feared that I would die of slow-poisoning very soon. Once I overheard his conversation with Adam, the one who supplied cocaine to him. That very night, I got a mild heart attack. I didn’t inform anyone because; I didn’t wish to put their lives into risk.
This can all be identified on page 375 when the text states, “Everyone cheered and then drank [wine] --except me. Before the next minute had passed, they had all fallen to the ground [from poison].” This small blurb clearly indicates that the family members of El Patrón never contemplated the idea that the wine was poisoned by El Patrón. Before they drank the wine too, the group talked about selling his belongings the next day. They never did expect El Patón to turn on them. El Patrón simply did not want anyone to live on his estate if he wasn’t there.
Although Jackson was violently shot twice in a restaurant, he survived and after being brutally assaulted on the streets; clung to life for a week before dying, and became a martyr for the Selma marches that followed. The movie also averted from the true reason why King was absent during the first Selma march ‘Bloody Sunday’. It suggested that he was delayed due to his marriage, however, it was proven that King had originally tried to postpone the protest till Monday, but to prevent altercation permitted the march to proceed due to the large turnout. Initially King had felt the march would not last, and would inevitably amount to imprisonment. There was no documented proof of Kings marital
“I was never insane except upon occasions when my heart was touched.”(Poe) For 8 years Nigel Pratten suffered from Huntington’s disease, something he had always said he would kill himself before enduring. When given the opportunity Nigel swallows heroin no being physically capable of injecting it, and slips into a coma. His mother is with him while he does this and suffocates him before the drug kills him, not wanting him to suffer. It was her way of fulfilling her son’s final wish. Is mercy killing justified?
Richard by the age of six had already become an alcoholic because when he went to the saloon he could fill his stomach with alcohol and quench his appetite. A year after this incident, Richard explains that, “Hunger was with us always”(pg.28). Richard associates hunger with his father as hunger continues to follow Richard throughout his adolescence from the moment his family fell apart and his mother was left to fend for herself and her children. Part of the reason Richard does not have enough food is because blacks in the South could not get high paying jobs like Ella, his mother, would need in order to support her family properly. Unfortunately for Richard, his mother ends up sending Richard and his brother to an orphanage until she can make more money to care for him.
He claims his parents died. He claims he went to Oxford, which is hardly true considering he went for 5 months. He says he owns drug stores, but he’s a bootlegger. By being so blunt and open, Owl-Eyes doesn’t mirror the other partygoers, and he especially doesn’t mirror Gatsby. Gatsby puts up a facade for Daisy, showing his lack of honesty; it makes his life murky.
We smoked dope all the way, and as we were late in arriving headed straight to the club. Ty had a handful of meth tabs, and we each ate five hits to get started. We spent the rest of the night hanging out with his band members and dancing until 2:00 AM. We then moved to an after-hours club and danced until dawn eating speed all night. We did stop for breakfast, but because we were so wired, couldn’t eat and spent the next few hours smoking a bong full of hash until we were ready to crash.
Within a month of his arrival to Radford University, however, he would be found dead in his home with a blood alcohol level of .48, six times the legal limit for driving in the state of Virginia. His fateful death would be discovered to be a result of hazing, specifically “excessive alcohol intake,” in order to gain access into the Tau Kappa Epsilon fraternity (Moxley). Unfortunately, circumstances such as these happen across college campuses in the United States yearly, but this was not always the case. Hazing is “any activity expected of someone joining a group that humiliates, degrades, abuses, or endangers regardless of the person’s willingness to participate” (Holmes). This form of harassment takes place in a variety of social groups and communities, but has a prevalence within greek culture on college campuses.
Eric and I did everything together, except when he was with his racist friends. Eric always left the dorm around midnight and would come back right before class. I didn’t know where he was going until after class that day, I saw a white KKK cloak in his room. I knew now and it scared me to think he is apart of that group of racist murderers. That meant he can’t know about me going to help the basketball team get to the NCAA tournament next week.
The NA meeting had a guest speaker named Adam, the most surprising thing about meeting were candor and humor evoked by the speaker. Adam acknowledged that he has been addicted to drugs for seventeen years, and this behavior started when he was in the 7th grade. Adam was genuinely outspoken and humorously shared being in and out of treatment facilities over 28 times costing hundreds of thousands of dollars. The group really identified with the speakers story, and this was exhibited by laughter and comments from the crowd. Actually, I didn’t have any perceived notions about attend NA meeting, my only contention was to better understand this community.

The movie was based off a true story and was talking about a man named Oscar Grant III. They showed his lifestyle and how on New Year’s he was on a train hanging out with his girlfriend and friends but he had got into a fight with someone he he use to know.

He showed her the gun and bullets, but she did not tell the police what Chapman planned on doing. On the day of the shooting Chapman met Lennon outside of the hotel Lennon was staying at, he even shook hands with his son and got him to sign his copy of Catcher in the Rye. While meeting Lennon Chapman was too starstruck to pull the trigger and waited hours outside the hotel for Lennon to return that night. The assassination of John Lennon was unjust because he was an innocent musician who was killed by a mentally unstable man; however some believe that because of his outspoken personality he deserved the animosity he received (History.com 1). Chapman explained that Lennon was the target “because he was very
