Once upon a time, the legends say, there was in the Kingdom of Moor a church whose stained glass windows wept; if you drank the their tears, say the same legends, the gods would bestow upon you a miracle – that which you desired most would become yours. Pilgrims soon began to gather, and if at first their desires were noble, the more people that came, the more tainted the wishes of their hearts were. And thus one fated day the windows stopped weeping; only when one the saints within them judged virtuous approached did they began their mourn anew. Many came, and many were turned away by the coldness of the immovable glass.
An important symbol in “The Catcher in the Rye” was the gray hair located one side of Holden’s head, acting as a physical symbol of Holden’s inevitable transition from an innocent child to a mature adult. Holden described himself as being “Six foot two and a half and... gray hair... the one side of my head-the right side-is filled with millions of gray hairs” (Page 9). His hair on one side being gray is a way of symbolizing how, although he acts like a child in many instances, he could also be an intelligent and knowledgeable person, and was transitioning into adulthood. His gray hair also was a characteristic that he could not control and had to learn to embrace, just like how he had to learn to embrace the way he would become an adult in the
Symbolism is a notable feature in Catching Fire. Through symbolism , Suzanne Collins manages to paint Katniss as the ultimate embodiment of rebellion through transferring her into a mockingjay . " A mockingjay is a creature the Capitol never intended to exist"(92), as it is a result of the Capitol's usage of the japperjays which were sent to spy on the rebels. However, the japperjays failed in their mission so the Capitol left them to die ,but they managed to survive through mating to female mockingbirds . This proves that the existence of the mockingjays is an act of rebellion in itself , an act of defiance excuted by the Capitol's own invention , long before Katniss has been born. .

No one plans or even wants to lose their life due to an unfortunate mishap. Wouldn’t it be better to check twice, and to think ahead?

Popular Culture has often depicted Homo Neanderthals as inferior to Anatomically Modern Humans without much scientific evidence backing those claims of how Neanderthals and early humans coexisted. Movies, TV shows and commercials consistently push the same message that Neanderthals were clumsy, unintelligent, and barbaric, which is not the case. Anthropologists in the past have advanced the hypothesis that Neanderthals were an inferior species to make the homo sapiens appear superior and to align their assumptions with already established racial and special prejudice. A good example of these false claims would be the movie “the Quest of Fire.
The Fire Stick, utilised by Indigenous Australians has been an essential tool in the practice of traditional land management across Australia since their arrival 50,000+ thousand years ago. Fire Stick Farming (as it is now known) shaped the Australian landscape in ways that benefited both land and Aboriginal people. A practice that increases biodiversity of plant species, offered an abundance of food, both for Aboriginal people and wildlife such as the Kangaroo and Emu, and, in turn, increased populations of these species, which were also a desired food source. Additionally, the practice of burning both small and large areas of land ensured the prevention of larger uncontrollable fires which can devastate landscapes, as evidenced by the common

They were just an extra hand in the house that had no say or existed in the white people world. The slaves’ job was to obey their master or mistress at all times, do their chores and take the beating if given one.
