It warmed my heart reading about how Stanley’s relationship with Zero was so strong that he risks his own life by hijacking Mr. Sir’s truck and briskly setting off to find Zero. Stanley’s expectations weren’t high considering that Zero had been away for days without food, water, or shelter, but when he overheard the Warden and Mr. Sir over talking about how they were going to delete all of Zero’s files and act like he never existed, he knew he made the right choice. Near the end of the book, my feelings about the lines above were reassured to be true when Stanley was officially released back to his lawyer and before leaving he said, “‘I can’t leave Hector.’” (Sachar 219). This caused Ms. Morengo, Stanley’s lawyer, to demand Zero’s files but then discovering that Camp Green Lake was a fraud, forcing it to be shut

Luckily, my father was still watching over me from a distance. He told me that as soon as he saw my head submerged underwater; he called for my elder brother at the top of his lungs. Luckily, my elder brother was nothing like me regarding swimming capability. He was a competitive swimmer, but more importantly, he came to my rescue. I can remember having my chest pushed above the water and being dragged away from the sea.

I think that the man was doing the right thing by going out and following his owns ways. The teacher could have been wrong and by listening to the teacher he has conformed to society and what they think instead of thinking about his own ideas and how he really feels about the topic. This would lead them all into the wrong path. If you keep doing the wrong thing you can never reach the peak in knowledge ,which is supposed to help a person strive to be unique and break out from that bubble of conformity. Why should people always the the same thing instead of keeping an open mind and expressing how they feel not how everyone feels and that topic?
I had never swam more than a 50 before this, but I gritted my teeth instead of scratching the event. When I stepped up to the block, I saw a few swimmers with the same striking blue and red swim caps as me at the other end of the pool, but didn’t think anything of it. During the race, I could feel my limbs growing sore and my lungs aching to breathe normally again. Above the deafening splashes of water around me, I picked up a different sound: cheers. “Go!

I knew he would win. When Chris demolished Mike Barbour in the swimming competition, he demonstrated what I already knew: a cognitive disability does not limit one’s athletic ability. After all, Mike Barbour’s athletic skill is irrelevant when it comes to swimming. “If you’re going to be a swimmer you gotta swim” (Crutcher 260). I think it’s important to note that before Chris was on the swim team, I didn’t know much about him besides that he had a mental disability and that his late brother was destined for athletic greatness.

The building principal should have been able to build a stronger school community relation with this parent by being honest and handling his mistake.
