Which then he had “freedom.” As well as when he used his intelligence and used the tour guide incident with the water splashing on him to get tips off people and raise more money he normally did to pay off his debt. I like the fact that he was brave enough, strong, willing able to give up what many people die for. Only living in his van by himself with no one to talk to but himself. He survived his adventure and now he can have what he wanted from the beginning “freedom” As I did have parts I liked about the book I also had parts that I didn’t like. “It was season of selfishness, or at least that’s how I justified it” ken’s reasoning of breaking apart his relationship with Sami.

I visited the memorial ground with my African American history professor and my classmates. The building has incredibly tight security because it is a federal building and we had to go through the screening process. I was happy that the museum was free. The memorial is a very beautiful and powerful reminder of those who suffered tremendously in our collective American history. There are two parts, the burial ground monument and the museum.
It is hard to choose an event that had an impact on Human Services because there are so many but I also chose Jane Addams as well. One thing I truly admire from Jane was how she saw a problem and did not ignore it but did something to fix the problem such as the Hull House Settlement. Jane put herself in different situations to help her challenge herself and to grow from the different challenges to be role model for others to see (Seigfried,
The book is a good read and I liked it. I learnt so much more yjan just slavery. Author depicted several other aspects of how the modern world has turned out to be. Some of the cultres are still embedded in our society today. What parts did you like?
They were absolutely moving, inspiring and hauntingly beautiful. I could relate to some of the struggles within the text as I struggle with eating issues as well. So the way she wrote about such difficulties was therapeutic for me. Her work truly spoke to me and resonated with me on many levels. I handed them in because I was to insecure about my own work, but I learned that everyone has its own style of writing, and nothing is right or wrong.
The man that I sat next to was a middle aged African American named Paul who worked as a landscaper for the city. He was the friendliest of the bunch, who recommended us to go to Broadway street for the outlets or to the Yale museum which is free to everyone. However, he went on to saying to watch out for the Yale kids as they were weird and seemed privileged to whatever it is they have. Even mocking them about how they dress stating that they “stick out like a sore thumb” and that they “just don’t seem like real people”. Other than that, we continued talking about where to shop and his stop came and then ours which we decided would be Broadway street that is also right next to Yale University.
I think by reading this book, that perhaps Harper Lee has fulfilled her intentions with me as a reader, that I have therefore become a better person. I find Atticus a very idealistic, moral character. He has a great sense of humor and tries his best to raise his children as a single parent. I like how Lee used the first part of To Kill a Mockingbird for us to get to know Atticus as a person and a father, not just as a white lawyer defending an African American. Atticus also has strong views on the treatment of whites toward blacks; I loved what he said in the book: "As you grow older, you'll see white men cheat black men every day of your life, but let me tell you something and don't you forget it - whenever a white man does that to a black man, no matter who he is, how rich he is, or how fine a family he comes from, that white man is
“With them, justice, liberty and humanity were “final”; not slavery and oppression.” This relates to the hardships and the fact that the people don’t recognize how terrible it is. And that these meanings of these “free” words mean something else to him and other slaves. He shows that the changes are hard but once they are made everything will be peaceful. Rhetorical features and strategies are Douglass’ forte’ in engaging with the audience. He uses metaphors and antithesis within to strengthen that connection.
It has been strongly carved into my mind since that time that it is hard and painful that I cannot communicate with words. However, during that time, I became the same student as who attends the American school. The touching different culture was very fun to me. From that moment, I understood that seeing a different world in me is a joy of life for me. If you make an effort, you will be rewarded.
Interviewing a friend did take off the stress of making mistakes and we had a great time. The whole interview went well aside from taking too long to take notes. The interview was interesting for both Mario and I. We thought that it made us aware about the struggles that we had to go through and at the end we realized the positive impact that migrating to America has made on our lives. However, we both feel that our experiences were not as difficult as how it was portrayed in the books and movies about the challenges that immigrants face.
Even Though there have been many special days, the end of slavery is one of the best. Slaves worked and yield cotton. Slavery was a tremendous concept in America, and this concept was one of issues in the Civil War. Slavery is a special day for Americans and African Americans, because the Emancipation Proclamation was signed for the freedom of Slaves. The slaves were given 48 acres and a mule.
