“Something went off like a thunderclap just behind him; a hot wind knocked him senseless and red fire singed his hair.” That was an excerpt from the famous story “Rikki TIkki Tavi”. We recently read it in my ELA class. It follows a mongoose named Rikki TIkki Tavi as he tries to protect his newfound family from two cobras that terrorize the bungalow and its garden. When fighting these snakes Rikki Tikki Sometimes gets himself into situations where he confuses bravery for stupidity and ignorance. The first reason that Rikki Tikki is not brave but stupid, is that after an angry nagaina took her egg back he followed nagaina when “she plunged into the rat hole” (p.27) he followed suit.

After years of being stuck in that mountain, there was a dog who was freezing outside.
I was waiting in line at the Rockin Roller Coaster at Disney World, and I had butterflies in my stomach. The line was so long and when people got off they looked very shaken. The tunnel that led inside of the Rockin Roller Coaster was really dark inside, and the music was really loud. When I was waiting in line I really wanted to tell my mom and dad that I did not want to ride the ride anymore, but instead I said, “Have you ever ridden the Rockin Roller Coaster before?” And my dad said, “Yes I have and it was really fun, I know that you are going to love it!” That made me feel a little bit better because he liked it too. We kept on getting closer and closer to the front of the line and I kept on getting shakier and shakier.

Nevertheless, Grendel’s isolation from animals, “The doe in the clearing goes stiff at sight of my horridness, then remembers her legs and is gone (Gardner pg.7)”, and other monsters, “”I see,” I said. It was to some extent untrue (Gardner pg. 65)”, leave him alone. He has no companions from the animals, who are scared of him, nor the other monsters, who he can not totally understand. Isolation from society deals major blows to self esteem and confidence.
George Milton decides to end Lennie’s life in order to save him from much pain and suffering in the future. This is an example of an immoral “mercy killing”. George should not have been the judge for Lennie’s life; thus it was wrong for George to determine whether Lennie should have lived or not. No one can make the ultimate decision whether someone should live or die. In a bedroom one night, Gigi Jordan and her severely autistic son, Jude Jordan were conversing as Jude exclaimed, “Dad bad!
