Lennie and George’s dream was to own their own farm but it was hard to attain because of money issues and Lennie's disability, “But he gets in trouble alla time because he’s so Goddamn dumb” (Steinbeck 41). George was the only one who knew about Lennie’s disability and he kept it a secret because if people knew, they would have never gotten a job. People with mental and physical disabilities were discriminated during the Great Depression because they were different, which made it hard to attain dreams. There were many protests that happened during the Great Depression involving people with disabilities, people would go to relief offices and demand for jobs, but the
They were all effected with harsh conditions on the boats from large waves and disastrous weather, seas sickness and unpleasent smells. It was difficult for all three of the human classes once they arrived also. Not only were the convicts and slaves unpropitious, but so were the free settlers, as said in Skwirk “life of a free settler was often very harsh… food was scarce,” showing the difficulty slaves also experienced, even though they were granted land and workers. Without much knowledge of their land, farms failed and did not produce crops, leading to scanty amounts of food, not enough to be shared amongst and fill stomachs. However, slaves, convicts and free settlers definitely experienced journeys immensely different to one and another as those mentions were only minor similarities.
Furthermore, the black slaves suffered severe physical and mentally as “the crew often neglected to feed the salves, empty the tubs used for excrement, take slaves on deck for exercise, tend to the sick, or remove the dead” and were tightly packed in vertical shelves (Hine 32). Different from the other primary sources is that Primary Source #2 does not indicate that children are available for sale. In addition, the fact that the payment could have been made in “produce” hints that the seller might return to England with the produce marking the end of the voyage. Lastly, the fact that sale was held each day demonstrates that slavery was very much institutionalized in
The president and all the people in the White House will also have a high risk of dying so therefore they will not feel like working either. Natural resources and supplies will disappear as well. Without people working there will be nobody to maintain our natural resources. Our food supply will run out as well because farmers will not be able to tend to the farms and gardens that provide us with certain foods. America will severely decline in aspects of the country like our people, government, and
Have you ever just had a bad day maybe you're sick and you just feel miserable all day or you forget your coat at home and end up being really cold all day, or even forget your lunch money and you can't eat for a while. The jews that got put in the ghettos felt worse then that every day of their lives and the worst thing was they had no hope, they couldn't just go to the doctors when they were ill or have options of food everyday. The nazis made their lives miserable and i'm going to tell you how. Many tragic things occurred during world war II, the natzis created jewish ghettos wich affected 3.8 million of the jewish population. More than 400 jewish ghettos were established.
As the American Revolution was in full swing, soldiers were being recruited and fighting for their freedom from the British. However, the fight for freedom took more than just fighting skills. The men fighting had to endure the harsh conditions and the little help and supplies they received. The American army went to Valley Forge in hopes of spying on the British army. However, the winter at Valley Forge was harsh with the cold seeping into their poorly built shelters and the little amount of supplies they had was not enough to keep everyone alive and healthy.
Salems Politics were also affected, the Salem Village committee was replaced with an anti-Parris committee. Parris tried to make peace and save his job but didn't do very well and agreed to leave the town. After the trials many of the townspeople didn't get along with the ones who accused their friends or family. These trials shook the town of Salem, they even changed the name of the town after that to Danvers because of how guilty
The people in San Lorenzo are destined to fail no matter what leader they have. San Lorenzo is even easy to take over, “Everyone was bound to fail, for San Lorenzo was as unproductive as an equal area in the Sahara or the Polar Icecap” (Vonnegut 133) The people who live in San Lorenzo have very little money and resources, do not have very much to eat, and do not have a lot of motivation left, "Johnson and McCabe had failed to raise the people from the misery and muck" (Vonnegut 133). San Lorenzo’s people are also filled with diseases, “The people of San Lorenzo had nothing but diseases, which they were at loss to treat or even name” (Vonnegut 123). All of these things lead the people of San Lorenzo, to no longer care who their leader is, because they know that it doesn’t really matter, they are going to fail anyway.
His homeland, lord, and kinsmen were all wiped out in the war. He went into exile because he lost everything he knew in life. The man traveled everywhere in search for this new lord to provide him with shelter and protection. While on his journey he travel through the harsh, wintery sea. The exile was difficult for the speaker mostly due to him not having anyone to spend his days with.
Thousands on thousands of people were lacking the means to provide shelter, food, and clothing for themselves yet alone their families. The Federal government knew about the conditions the African Americans were in and did little to nothing assist the needy. Infections even minor ones left former slaves with the burden of unpaid medical bills or the lack of ability to access the proper medical care that they needed. Shortages of these things caused African Americans to resort to the treatment of the diseases with herbal and home remedies that have been pasted down or figured out by themselves by trial and
What horrible things did the continental army have to suffer in their six- month encampment? They experienced hunger, diseases, and death. Since it was cold some couldn 't bathe causing them to have bad hygiene. Also at the time smallpox and pneumonia was being spread. Since there weren 't many medical supplies, some couldn 't be treated.
I am not going to re-enlist in the war because we have poor conditions, many people are dying, and we are getting very little support. The first reason I am not going to re-enlist in the war is because there were very poor conditions. In document C, the diary of Dr. Waldo, he says “Poor food-hard lodging-cold weather-fatigue-nasty cloaths-nasty cookery-vomit half my time…. why are we sent out here to starve and freeze?” They are dying out here of the poor conditions.
During the jamestown period, there was seldom food to be found anywhere, which led the colony to acquire aid from the Native Americans. The Jamestown population would then slowly decrease due to disease, famine, and attacks from Natives. The one tribulation however that destroyed jamestown, was “starving time.” This period of starvation swept jamestown in the winter, which led most colonists to die, abandon their settlements, and/or return to England. Climate and war were but two common ordeals the colonists had to face traveling to America.
Being free, though, did not ensure their freedom. While freed, they remained four million of the most despised people in the United States. Further complicating the issue was the fact that very few freedmen had any education and even fewer possessed life skills. They had always been told what to do and when to do it.
