Life is composed of a bunch of different events, some great and some not so good. For all of the orphans in the world, most of the events in their life fall into the not so good category. Imagine losing your parents and being put into a system you have no control of. In, The Orphan Train by Christina Baker Kline, she explains the how the system The Children’s Aid Society set up worked. They had very good intentions but unrealistic expectations, most of the kids were placed into bad homes and had to go to multiple new homes until they found on that was good for them.
A different co-worker kills the older co-workers dog. Lennie was given a puppy and accidentally kills it. Curly’s (the son of the boss of the farm) wife likes other men not Curly; when she sees Lennie in the barn with his dead dog she flirts with him and he then snaps her neck. Lennie proceeded to run off into the woods where George then mercy kills him. It is wrong to kill anyone for the reasons of it violates the rights of that individual, it is morally wrong and illegal to take the life of a person, as well as it proves the lack of responsibility on the individual that assists the person being murdered.
Loyalty represents Sarty and Betrayal represents Abner ’’In William Faulkner Barn Burning Abner says ‘’You’re getting a man. You’ve got to learn.You got to learn to stick to your old blood or you ain’t going to have any blood to stick to you.’’ Abner try’s to threatening Sarty and also suggesting that he does not betrayal him, but everyone as readers knows he does Betrayal him.Also ’’In William Faulkner Barn Burning he says’’ he could not see the table where the justice sat and before which his father and his father’s enemy stood.’’This shows loyalty and betrayal by the two people standing side by side together and what each one’s meaning means Faulkner shows a glimpse of this loyalty when in the beginning of the story “Barn Burning” the son, Sarty will not speak out against his father, Abner. At the same time in this story, due to his father's harshness and absoluteness in his power over his family, the son realizes that there are alternatives to this harsh absolute behavior of his
Abner kept burning fuel handy and had containers to refill when it was time to burn another barn and caused destruction, but when it was time to keep his family warm in the cold outdoors, he would only build small fires. Abner was expressing his rage against how black people were treated in the south, and the only way to express his hatred was to seek revenge. He was aware that in such an unfair system, there was not much he could say in public or do that would not get him killed. So, he devised methods for getting back at society by using destruction and encouraging his family to support him. Abner’s wife, children and sister-in-law had to continuously relocate and in the process scratch, break, and destroy the little possessions they owned, because
Once he destroyed the hound he began to burn Beatty alive. Beatty stood there and didn’t try to stop it from happening almost as if he wanted it to happen. Although Montag was injured from getting “stung” by the hound, he managed to get away far enough for no one to find him. And back to the topic of society not caring about people dying, they had released another hound and it had killed an innocent man so that the search didn’t have to continue. The same thing had happened when the professors went missing after they were caught teaching kids and helping them be able to think for
Once again, Eurylochus displays a juxtaposition. He did not follow the others into Circe's home because he knew there was trouble and potentially death awaiting. However, he willingly killed the cattle knowing full-well he and the other crewmen could be punished. His reason was clouded by temptation and
Both stories “Barn Burning” and “ A Good Man is Hard to Find” demonstrate problems regarding dysfunction and family issues. Faulkner’s longer story speaks directly and openly about the downward spiral of family, and also about the trouble one may go through all because the idea of family. O’Connor’s shorter story focuses on a family that all have one common goal but go about it in a selfish way. In a sense, Faulkner’s and O’Connor’s stories go hand and hand, showing the similarities and differences between the two families. Both stories are based on family with different beliefs and values.
My thoughts on Boo radley giving gift that would turn up in the Radley trees for the kids was quite creepy and curious as to why he would do that. Until Atticus the father of Scout and Jem proves that Tom Robinson is innocent and Bob Ewell beat Mayella, but the all white jury finds Tom guilty and he dies trying to escape. So later on Bob Ewell threatens Atticus and attacks Scout and Jem on their way home one evening. Boo Radley appears and kills Bob Ewell, and saves the children. My thoughts as i described him as Creepy before, Had changed my whole perception of him because I knew he was just looking out for Scout and Jem.
This took so long dude, and i got rolled by my mom last night haha. As much as he was devastated by decision the clan elders made with Ikemefuna, he didn’t want to show anyone that he was weakened by this choice of Ikemefuna to die. The elders to him that he didn’t have to be apart of killing Ikemefuna, but he declined and went with the others to kill him. He did this because he wanted to show everyone that he could lead the clan and that he would make any decisions by emotion. AKA he didn’t want to be called a pussy.
One of them is the theme of morality and loyalty to the law. The main character Sarty protests against his father’s violent plan because he does not want to follow the instructions of such immoral person. He realizes that destruction is not the way to fight against inequality. When the local boy accuses Sarty’s father of his crime, Sarty tries to defend his family. However, when Sarty’s father decides to continue his criminal actions and to burn one more barn, the boy does not confirm his decision.
