Culture difference doesn’t always come easy. America is taught that we are superior and our media only covers what won’t affect our nation. The author of the article “Different is Just Different” is Suzanne Fisher Staples and her main idea is how important it is for people to understand the differences of another nation and culture. Different does not mean better or worse but helps us become more compassionate, media only covers what is convenient for the nation and women in Pakistan and Afghanistan are affected by poverty the most due to no education and no income. Being different gives us an opportunity to create a compassionate world and a better understanding of other nations and culture.

In writing A Voyage Long and Strange, Tony Horwitz’s goal is clear, to educate others on early America and debunk ignorant myths.

Friedan’s novel is well known for creating a different kind of feminism and rousing various women across the nation.
The Pedestrian Thesis: In a short story titled “The Pedestrian”, written by Ray Bradbury, Bradbury uses the setting to display a lonely, sad mood and person vs society conflict as he battles the lonely streets. Bradbury shows the lonely mood by having the character walk alone in the empty streets. Bradbury wasted no time describing the streets as silent and misty making for a very lonely mood. Mead, the main character, walks along the streets alone with no sign of life, saying “he would see cottages and homes with their dark windows, and it was not unequal to walking through a graveyard where the faintest light is a flicker of a firefly” Bradbury’s quote shows how empty and lonely the streets are by referring to them as a
The amazing adventures of “The Hitchhiker” You won't believe what happens in Lucille Fletcher’s “The Hitchhiker,” Ronald Adams is running away from his problems but he keeps making them worse by chasing after them.

“How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.” Can love even be measured? It is such an intense feeling that can entirely transform the way that people view the world. It can be experienced more intensely for some compared to others. Elizabeth Browning and Anne Bradstreet both manifested their own intense feelings of love for their husbands in the form of poem.
