Beloved Repulsion In Tori Morrison’s novel, Beloved, the author explores the idea of the massive devastation that slavery has. The negative impact of no knowledge of self-worth and self-alienation, being very dangerous, is one that haunts slaves so far that it continues to reach those who are able to reach freedom. Morrison presents the haunting, taunting temperament of the novel through a child, a spirit of a slave’s daughter murdered by her own mother to avoid slavery but has a different kind of slavery; an eternal captivity. The child is the thought spirit of Sethe’s dead daughter but is the age she would have been if she was still alive. The child had no name so she bears the title on her tombstone; Beloved.
She had no intention of reading the book, since she saw it as a symbol. It represented the last time she saw her mother (because she was sent away to a foster family) and her brother. When her foster father, Hans Huberman, discovered the book she had brought with her, he decided to help her become literate. Together they spent hours learning the how to read as a way to comfort her when she had one of her frequent nightmares.

In “The 7 Habits of Highly Effective Readers” by Kavitha Rao, she express her opinion on the topic that the current generation is not reading for fun. She mentions several experience she had with other people, that don 't see the benefit in reading for fun. She says that since people aren 't reading more leisure anymore they 're becoming less creative, inarticulate, have poor communication skills and low confidence, which is caused by parents forcing their kids to read, and the education system need to have students memorize textbooks and nothing else. After reading this article I find myself disagreeing with Rao on several points she made, I don’t believe the modern attitude towards reading is causing people to be self absorbed and unimaginative, she also claims that book clubs don 't encourage reading for fun, parents are forcing their children to read boring books which turned them away from reading and that the educational system is to blame for college students for being inarticulate. In the very first paragraph Rao mentions a the conversations she had with two different people, the first person say “I never read fiction” and “After what 's the point of a book if it doesn 't teach you anything.” Another person says “Fiction is not real, no?” and adds “I only like to read real stories to improve myself.” She states that many young people don 't see the benefit in read unless its to help improve themselves, or to ace a job interview.

Although the terrifying anxieties that result from being haunted can be obscured behind fabricated smiles and optimistic speculations, they are often exposed in human’s everyday nervous tendencies.

Hilary assumes everything she hears are true because she assumes jewish people are such bad people and they deserved to endure all the pain, Hilary thinks this because Brad tells her all these things about jewish people and how they are so greedy and lazy. I do not like Hilary because she jumps to conclusion about things not knowing half the story. “‘“Do you recognize all Jews as children of Satan?” “I do!”’” In this section of the story Hilary is believing Brad about what Jewish people and why they supposably are not acceptable. This moment in the story I do not like because Hilary does not know anything about Jewish people accept what people tell her, meaning she does not know how they may be feeling or what the Jewish people are going through, until she

She had been known as the "human face of the Holocaust." The journal she kept for 25 months, when she was hiding from the Nazis, is an invigorating record of her soul and trust even with cruelty and peril. Her words helped numerous in battles to see how to manage the harmfulness and scorn we find on the planet today. As she wrote, she never expected to attract a crowd of people containing a huge number of adoring individuals, composing a lot of individual thought, trusts, and dreams.

With her drive and tenacity, D’Vonya funneled her desire for educational success down to the students and their families during her junior internship at S.A.N.D. Elementary School, Hartford, CT. She worked directly with the K-4 children and their families who were failing to come to school regularly or not progressing academically.

Many of the comments made regarding the children and their parents who were fighting to overcome life’s obstacles was disheartening for her to hear.
