The Life Of Kennedy “The man with fewer than three and a half years to live has his left hand on the Bible.” Not even a page into this book really gets you to think that everything can change in an instance.

If there is one thing that the humans are historically bad at doing it's admitting their own faults. Hubris blinds us from seeing the bigger issues That, I believe, is the sole reason why the world that we live in is unjust. It's full of people who are misusing their power positions like Kim Davis, a disgruntled county clerk.

People are also judged because of their skin color and not by their personalities like Ahmed Mohamed, a freshman apprehended for building clock .

In “The Murder Traveller” poet William Cullen Bryant employs a variety of literary devices such as juxtaposition, imagery, and tone to create an eerie atmosphere, with the continual thought being that life goes on with or without you.

In “Time to Assert American values,” by New York Times and “Rough Justice” by Alejandro Reyes, both passages argue for and against the punishment prescribed in the Michael Fay case. After carefully analyzing the two texts the reader realizes that the article “Rough Justice” has the most relevant and sufficient article to support these arguments because of the way the author uses a sustainable amount of evidence and facts to back up it’s claims, as well as, strong rhetorical appeals. One example of how “Rough Justice” has a stronger appeal to it than “Time to Assert American values,” is its
