How much of American history do you know? Black history is a part of America’s history, but why is it not deeply taught in schools? In schools we often talk about white American leaders or wars America has won, but not much history of other cultures in America. We may hear a little information about certain minority leaders who fought for a change, but not much facts. If today’s youth aren’t being taught about the thing’s their ancestors have gone through and all the things that has happened and why, many will grow up ignorant. Dr. Martin Luther King, Rosa Parks, Jackie Robinson, these are only a few people mentioned in class, but what about Claudette Colvin who nine months before Rosa Parks, decided not to get off the bus and was taken to jail, or Emmett Till who was 14 and brutally beaten and killed for whistling at a white woman. These are only a few who are not mentioned in our history books or classrooms.
The events of history impact our daily lives in a dramatic way. As a result of the people who stood out and fought for our rights, society is able to voice its opinion and live freely. For example, Sojourner Truth fought for women’s rights and wanted society to look at individuals for who they were, not what their gender was. The minds of many were changed by these powerful advocates and our lives are affected by their actions.

What exactly do we make happen, or accomplish while being inactive or lazy? Some would say you can accomplish much more when always doing something. Those who believe that are completely correct. It's as simple as the alphabet. If you constantly focus your own time and energy into doing something, multiple things will come from that situation, giving you opportunity to accomplish more. Ultimately all these opportunities come from working hard and refusing to be inactive. Former President and also a founding father of our country, Thomas Jefferson once said, "Determine never to be idle... It is wonderful how much may be done if we are always doing." Being a founding father, its easy to see that most of his time was given to developing America, and helping it

“Each person must live their life as a model for others” (Rosa Parks). Rosa Louise Parks greatly contributed to the civil rights movement due to her courageous actions. Parks always believed that African Americans were never treated the same as whites. Rosa realized at a young age that African Americans were deprived of many their rights and wanted to do something about it. She volunteered in many anti-segregation organizations and did whatever she could to fulfill their purpose. No matter how it was done, Rosa’s goal was to end segregation between all races.
Edna Pontellier and I are “hewn from the same crooked timber”, as we are both products of a flawed society (symbolized by the timber) where the pressure to fulfill our own expectations means we defy the expectations of others around us. Within The Awakening, there are many instances where Edna is held to the expectations of being “a perfect mother”, such as those placed by Mr. Pontellier as to how a mother should take care of her children. However, Edna wants to be more than just a mother. She wants to become an artist. When Edna befriends Mademoiselle Reisz, the latter highlights the audacious nature that Edna should embody in order for her to pursue painting. When Edna questions Reisz about this, Reisz exclaims, “Courageous, ma foi! The
It is often hard to place blame on children or young adults. There is always a sense that they do not fully understand conditions or how the world works. However, in the novel, Never Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro, the children are donors who, at some point in their lives, will have to donate their vital organs. Although this is what the donors are supposed to do, it is not what they have to do. The donors are given enough information, incentives, and opportunities to challenge the donation process. Because of this, the donors are completely responsible for their own fates.
Thomas Jefferson once said, "Determine never to be idle... It is wonderful how much may be done if we are always doing." Me personally, I could'nt agree more for what Thomas Jefferson is saying. Being lazy never moves you forward in the right direction. Getting up and putting you mind to something accomplishes way more activites. Perhapse you'll come to realize also that always doing something is a quicker and more efficent way of doing so. In fact, I've always been that boy that never stops moving. For example, I'm always at school, work, or sports. I never have down time because, when you're not doing anything you're not getting anything accomplished. If I never cared to be active and do those thing I like so much, I would never want to do
Have you ever been bored? What if i told you all that boredom could RUIN YOUR LIFE! This is why it 's important to debate whether or not we need more boredom. Some people would say boredom is a good thing,But i would care to differ. Being bored is the worst, it can lead to drug abuse, anxiety, and is just plain unenjoyable.
It's amazing on how one person can do so much. We can accomplish this if we are devoted to it. For insistence, Thomas Jefferson said " It is wonderful how much may be done if we are always doing." and it is wonderful because you got to ask yourself what's there secret or wow how did they do it? Like how can this one person be able to do this when i can't. But, it's also depending on the type of person you are, you can be able to multitask or not and still get the job done. I know it may be difficult even if you're not like everyone else because people are different. You might have a disabilities and not be able to do this like how everyone does but that doesn't mean you still can't get the job done. For example, my mom does so much for me and my brothers.
That was a quote from Mahatma Gandhi, a leader in the Indian independence movement.Injustices have torn society apart all over the world, from racial inequalities like lynchings to inequalities in gender like women 's education. Luckily for society, a few people decided to do what Ghandi said and spoke out against these injustices. Throughout the past 100 years there have been an abundance of unjust situations, but in every situation there have been rays of hope to better humanity in its time of need.
How can more things be accomplished if no one is doing anything? Thomas Jefferson wrote, "Determine never to be idle... It is wonderful how much may be done if we are always doing." What's getting done if no ones doing anything? Getting things accomplished is actually very important to some people. The more they can get accomplished better off they'll be. Imagine someone that just lost their job, suppose they're just sitting at home not doing anything. What are they going to get accomplish if they're just sitting there? They could be out looking for another job. Everything isn't always going to be given to someone, if they want to be successful, they have to go out and get it for themselves. Just because things get hard, doesn't mean people
You may have heard the quote, “As one person I cannot change the world, but I can change the world of one person.” What if you could change the world? You can. But not by yourself, it takes a team. During the civil rights movement in America there were many inspiring individuals. Such as Doctor Martin Luther King Junior or Rosa Parks. You may think that they changed the world, but I am here to tell you that they did not do it alone. No one can change the world alone. Due to the facts that, all protests were carried out by groups, and when one person stepped forward others followed, society can not be changed by a single being, it takes a team.
Geoffrey Chaucer is most commonly known as the father of the english language. Prior to Chaucer writing Canterbury Tales there was no written english language, just random languages combined into one. Chaucer was the first write down the language and because of that the spelling is not how everyday words are spelled. The translation into a language that modern americans can understand. Canterbury Tales was written by Chaucer at a very controversial time and because of that he wrote the story in way that would not make him seem like the bad guy. Making up characters and stories that question the moral behaviors of religion, patriarchy, and class nobility. Each character tells a different story with a different meaning. Although Chaucer included a diverse group of characters there are some that he missed. In modern times a few additions would be an athlete, a mother, and an actor.
