He has chosen to title his essay “Losing the War.” This however is not originally the title. The longer title is as follows; “World War II had faded into movies, anecdotes, and archives that nobody cares about anymore. Are we losing the war?” Albeit subtle subtle, this is perhaps one of the most powerful choices Sandlin made in his argument. He is suggesting that although the war is considered “won” in the history books, the trauma it caused —as the general nature of the war— is anything but victorious. He is also arguing that the American public is, actually, losing the war.
During the beginning of the second World War, England was struggling to initiate combat. Its government was suffering from inactivity, frustration was building against Prime Minister Chamberlain’s Conservative government, and anxiety about future attacks from the Germans loomed behind the backs of the press and the public. With Chamberlain’s resignation following the Norway Debate, as well as a bitter motion of no confidence from Parliament, Churchill succeeded the position, and needed to act decisively to unite Parliament and pilot the war effort. Gesturing for the House to declare its confidence in the new government, Churchill garnered public support by methodically describing actions taken by the new regime to improve their efforts, by appealing to the British values for Liberty against the forces of tyranny, and by emboldening the new government with strengthened, somber, and firm resolution to actively act against the Axis Powers. Ultimately, using rhetorical appeals of pathos and ethos, as well as some logos, Churchill effectively reaffirms the public and the House in his Blood, Toil, Tears, and Sweat Speech on May 13, 1940, allowing him to set the stage for his administration, and effectively begin the war against Germany with the all-party wartime coalition government to back him.
I’m going to be writing my paper on a song called “Crooked Smile” by J.Cole, J.cole or Jermaine Cole, was originally born in Germany. When he was 8 months old he and his mother moved to Fayetteville, North Carolina. He attended St. Johns University and graduated with great distinction, he got introduced to music when he was 12 by a family member and ever since then he has been infatuated with rap music and the art of storytelling through music. I feel as though the thesis of this song is simply this, why feel the need to impress someone who doesn’t care about you or why let your insecurities stop you from being great? I also sense that there is an underlying meaning inside the song that promotes not catering to the conformity of society, such as you don’t need a “perfect” body and an amazing face just to be a star to yourself.
He wasn’t expected to live very long, but did, so after two months they decided to name him. Doodle wasn’t even able to walk until he was about five when Brother taught him, but only taught him because he was embarrassed to have a brother who couldn’t walk. Later on, Brother tries to teach Doodle to do other things like swim, and one day after practicing swimming there was a bad lightning storm. During
We are going to finish what we were asked to do, to do just that. I’ve been thinking about what Thomas Paine said in his pamphlet, “The harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph.” (Paine 153). I asked another soldier what he thought it meant and he said, the harder things are the bigger the win. I was talking to a poor man who just came to the army in Valley Forge. I was being so negative and telling him all the bad things that happen to the soldiers here.
In this essay I will talk about Gregory past he was he was seven years old and why he took him twenty- nine years to forget about this girl. To begin with, Gregory never learn how to be ashamed of himself until the day when he started to go school.

In the story “Soldiers Home” by Ernest Hemmingway there was a character name Harold Krebs who was in the World War I and had just returned home. Before Harold had left for the war, he was going to a Methodist school; and was compared to an average college boy with friends that all favored each other. Harold was still young and had not grown into manhood to know who he truly was. He was not the same person when he returned from war. Harold’s conflict was that he was a different person when he left and now that he is back he must learn how to adapt and find himself.
‘It was all right to shut him up, Mr Radley conceded, but insisted that Boo not be charged with anything: he was not a criminal’ p.12 Boo has been shut inside for 20 years, the stories about him are greatly exaggerated, for example Jem’s description of him ‘judging from his tracks’ p.14. Having been kept inside for that long it would not be surprising to find that he suffers from anxiety when in company. ‘Dill left us in early September to return to Meridian’ p.17 Dill is only with them outside of school term times. In a sense he becomes a means within the plot to allow Jem and Scout to communicate information to the reader which they otherwise would not need to verbalise. However, he is also an instigator of action, it is he who pushes for the outing of Boo
“The dignity of truth is lost with much protesting,” was a quote by the English dramatist Ben Jonson. In Fahrenheit 451, Captain Beatty confronts Guy Montag and attempts to turn him away from the pursuit of reinstating books in the world they lived in. To do so, he makes a point, using Ben Jonson, that if Montag were to keep having violent bouts and shout his truth, the grace of it will be lost. However, the argument that Captain Beatty described and had used the quote was in a dream that he had. Consequently, Captain Beatty only used the quote to confuse Montag and convince him that his pursuit of bringing back writing was a lost cause.
