The flag represents freedom and justice and those who are being oppressed feel as though these certain rights are being taken away and that is why it is okay for someone to kneel during the National Anthem. While many people believe that kneeling during the National Anthem is wrong and is disrespectful to the country’s ideals, what many Americans do not realize is that if they look past their beliefs and try
This is very uncommon in the present day, but in Rod Serling’s “The Monsters Are Due on Maple Street”, this was their reality. In the 1960’s version, it was about a group of neighbors constantly being scapegoated for being part of an “alien invasion” into their neighborhood due to a recent power outage. In the 2003 version the same thing happened except they were being blamed for being a terrorist. Even though both films were made in completely different time periods they had the same message. “Fear of the unknown can cause people to turn on each other” To begin with, the neighbors in the 1960’s version of “The Monsters Are Due on Maple Street” stared off as a beautiful normal day, but within only a few hours, the whole street went to chaos, fear, and distrust.
He had to do it, didn’t he? Make sure that neither her nor her family would be able to recognize him and give, the police, a clue as to his whereabouts. But, maybe, he didn’t have to do it. He could’ve just scared them, scared them enough so as to have them not even mention having seen him. But, that wouldn’t have made him justice, that wouldn’t have shown his partners that he is supposed to lead them.
It’s difficult to put into words the feeling one gets when becoming aware of a shocking death. It’s a moment that leaves you numb, unable to process the significance of the reality in front of you. Waking up Sunday morning to a text message from a friend left me in that state. My first thought, which was likely the first thought of many, was that it was some kind of mistake or hoax.
He failed his mission, but he was grateful that he risked his life to do it. I couldn’t even imagine how he felt when it happened. He must have been disappointed in himself, but glad he was able to help. Nathan Hale’s Major accomplishments, later life, death, and how did his accomplishments change the world
The shooting caused a debate on gun control and school safety. The two men were Eric Harris ,18 and Dylan Klebold, 17 who were being bullied and that caused them to do the shooting.2 The event of the columbine massacre affected the people nearest to those killed and disbelief that this could have been on school grounds. The Columbine Massacre changed everyone 's life not only the victims, but the parents all around the world. After the shooting
Now, I can agree with some of the laws the movement is pushing but most of it can easily be debunked. If the nation wants stricter background checks and mental health checks I completely agree with those statements. But, raising the purchasing limit to 21 for a rifle does not help anything, the child who tried to shoot up a Maryland was a seventeen-year-old student and he had a handgun (which is only permitted until the age of 21). What I am saying, is a criminal can easily get their hands on a firearm if they wanted to. But too strict of gun control can lead to great, law abiding citizens without protection of their selves or their families.
And for anyone who could possibly oppose that we put stricter laws on getting guns is simply blind to the sad and awful reality that children cant even attend school without the fear of someone coming in that school and do something as terrible as open fire on innocent students. The frightening truth is that on average science 2013 there is approximately 1 school shooting every week that sums up to about 300 shootings and that 's
This is another aspect that over the years has become parallel with our modern society as widespread chaos spread across the internet as people scrambled to their screens to see the result of the FCC Chairman Ajit Pai's proposal to revoke Net Neutrality. The result passed despite the masses of the online community voting against the removal of Net Neutrality. There has also been shocking news in media as the February 10th school shooting in the US causing some of the survivors of the attack being accused of being Crisis actors. This huge web of truth and lies have caused the lines to blur in term of what is truth and what is false, we live in a time when there aren't solid answers, similar to that of
Every so often, there will be an event that will change your thoughts and perspective on a particular topic. The recent shootings at Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida has led me to rethink my opinions on gun control as a whole. It is no surprise that mass shootings happen; from when I was in eighth grade and Adam Lanza 20 elementary school kids and 6 staff members, to my first year of college when Nikolas Cruz killed 17 people. These horrific mass murders may seem like a common thing to us but this is not normal worldwide, this is only a common thing here in the United States.
It had been a few months since Farook 's last back-and-forth with these people, who officials said were not considered high priority. FBI official: 'What is the motivation for this? ' As to what role those communications played in the San Bernardino carnage, the official said, "We don 't know yet what they mean." Added Bowdich, from the FBI: "That is the big question for us: What is the motivation for this?" San Bernardino Police Chief Jarrod Burguan echoed that sentiment, while adding that whatever led the two to launch Wednesday 's assault, they could have killed more had they survived.
The nation in return rose to action and changed to insure safety across America. The Sandy Hook Massacre affected the US tremendously, creating awareness, more school security, and a new effective lockdown procedure at schools. Nearly immediately after news broke out of the shooting, people asked how a man who was so sick in the head could get a hold of so powerful of a rifle. The nation however had no answer. Gun laws had been in question before, but now after the funerals of 20 children the United States had to change.
During the National Rifle Association (NRA) Press Conference on December 21, 2012, Executive Vice President Wayne Lapierre, speaks out against these activists and exclaims “The only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun.” After hearing about the tragedy, Lapierre wants every school in America to deploy a protection program to keep its students safe. The NRA faces criticism from all over America, about how they are to blame, but Lapierre puts the blame on video games and violent movies such as, “American Psycho” and “Natural Born Killers.” He questions, “Isn’t fantasizing about killing people as a way to get your kicks really the filthiest form of pornography?” Lapierre is willing to give training to both students and teachers on the proper precautions
Survivor 's Guilt Imagine surviving the Holocaust while millions of other people have perished. Dying people from left to right. You honestly wanted to help them, however you could not. Would you feel the guilt that you were alive while the person next to you did not? Even if you had the chance, would you even have saved them?
