Jonas took a big risk in escaping like this, especially since he left two weeks before he meant to leave because of Gabe’s release. His rebellion was through taking Gabe so he wouldn’t be released, and forcing the community to bear the memories themselves. In summary, Jonas’s escape show that rebellion still happens when life is supposed to be perfect. In conclusion, perfection and equality can’t stop a rebellion. This theme is further proven when Jonas stops taking the pills, Harrison removes his handicaps, and Jonas leaves the community to release
It doesn’t prove anything.” Beforehand Ponyboy talks about how he is sick of fighting and that fighting won’t make anyone win, this is further proven by the fact that nothing changed after the rumble. Ponyboy talks to Randy about how things will always be rough all over, even if you’re rich and famous you will have hardships and tough times just like the people who aren’t rich. In conclusion, with understanding and love people can stop hate without causing more hate to
“A lad whose face had borne an expression of exalted courage…was, at an instant, smitten abject…he saw the fleeting forms…Directly he began to speed toward the rear in great leaps.” (Crane 75-76). During his second battle Henry was tired and unlike the first battle he did not fall into the “battle sleep” where the fighting became automatic for him. Instead Henry was afraid and since he had not yet found courage he saw the other soldiers fleeing and so he fled himself. At first Henry believed that to obtain courage you needed to be wounded and after he fled without a wound he believed everybody would see him for the coward he was. “He wished that he, too, had a wound, a red badge of courage” (Crane 100).
Overtime the guilt of what he has done and the stress of the situation causes his heart to begin to race, but of course he does not want to admit these feeling so he again convinces himself that the heartbeat is the old mans. The noise becomes so loud that he is convinced the police can hear it and are now mocking him by sitting there and talking like nothing is happening. This delusion leads straight back to his obvious madness and ultimately forces him to confess his crime because he could no longer take the stress of the situation. The narrator does not want to admit he is mad or that he is stressed out and guilty because of what he has done so he uses self-deception to put his mind at
She throws a fit and tries to refuse it and blame others. Likewise, Katniss seems to be making fun of the popular slogan of the Hunger Games: “May the odds be ever in your favor.” Obviously the odds are not in anyone’s favor because at the end of the day the tributes are either going to die or they are going to kill everyone else and have to live with the memories for the rest of their lives. Their is no real winner in that situation, yet the Capital makes it seem like a fun game, the Hunger “Games”. Capital children are mocking it because they know they never have to live it. According to Maria Magher, “The people of District 12 suffer daily from hunger and poverty.
This matters because this one of the first change Jonas has because he is now feeling, feelings, just like The Giver, but not everyone else.this reveals to us that jonas is breaking a rule and lying to everyone that his is taking the pills. Addition to not taking pills, Joans is becoming isolated even more is the game of war. On days off, the children like to play in the park. The like to play a game that They like to call, good guys and bad guys. The game to them as really no meaning, but to Jonas it's a whole different thing.
Jerry was sadly one of the three taken. Taking a boy and releasing someone who is of more threat to them is very unreasonable. Tim was very saddened and was angered at the British for it as he thought the British were people he could support at the time. He had lots of fun with Jerry fishing and climbing trees, but he expected to be friends with him for longer. Thinking that the war couldn’t also kill children, Tim decided to go against war, being

I may falter somewhat, Mister; I am no fool.” (64-65) Proctor is nervous about going in front of the court and defying everything that has been said about the matter previously. No one can blame him, even Hale, when told alone, doesn’t believe him. Another thing that John Proctor fears is his name being blackened with lies. When he is about to sign over his dignity and falsely
Coach Savery was the worst when it came to winning games, he just did not ever seem to care he just wanted to push a stupid point across. He would take out the starters and let the opposing team score and score until it was nearly impossible to come back and then yell at the starters for not playing to their full potential.

By the end of the first quarter we were losing 32-0.
