The difference is that they can have a family. In Harrison Bergeron the main characters are George the father, Hazel the mother, and Harrison the son that was taken away. The reason the government took Harrison away was because he was too smart and athletic and handsome. He was a “Danger to society.” People in the society that they live in are able to have families and live together and love eachother. The only thing, is that everyone has to be equal.
He used the benefits of not having deprivation in his past to shape his future by not caring about anyone but himself and possibly the hardship that he faced with the 3 months of jail time he will use to shape himself into a better man. Conclusion Horace’s comparison between your past and your character is very reasonable, whether you have had hardship or you have not had hardship it still shapes your views and how you perceive your goals. Martin Luther King Jr portrays how you can have plenty of hardship in your life but still do great things and make a difference in the world. Brock Turner shows how having an easy life and not having to deal with much can lead to not caring for others and doing only what you want. The divide between the two shows that no matter your hardship or lack of hardship it still shapes your personality
Between mental and physical trauma, and struggles such as safety and food shortages, cause women and children to be in extreme danger in the midst of civil wars. This is why countries like the USA and France usually try to intervene to help these third world countries get out of war, and save the many innocent civilians that are hurt due to malnutrition, rape, casualties, family deaths and many other factors. Johnny Mad Dog, Disposable people? : the plight of refugees, and Civil Wars in Africa: A Gender perspective of the Cost of Women, all help explain to us who have never experienced these horrendous things, how tragic and terrible war is on innocent women and children who just want to live peacefully and not struggle every day just to
Religion not being practiced could also be contemplated as favorable or unfavorable. If Lung’s sons did not break tradition then it would have been the next generation or the one after. Change is inevitable and a new view can not be avoided. Entire nations learn to grow and develop new customs, exactly like the Wang 's do in the novel in order to strengthen their family. As Winston
With the change of the times also brings forth more problems to be solved. Now when you go to a job they do not discriminate on color, gender, ethnicity or sexuality they have equal rights in place and most companies hire human service workers to make sure that everyone’s needs are met. So, we live in a better world then our elders did but now we have a bad economy and health insurance is at an all-time high. Of course, Medicare is still in place but they have measures in place and the only people who can use it are kids or people who have kids and the elderly, this means people who are young and do not have children have to pay for their health insurance and on top of other expenses. This means we have a problem with the health insurance system and most people feel like they are being left behind or not taken care of just like they did in the
“Africans in America” part IV “Judgment Day” is a PBS documentary that uses quotes, journal entries and photographs along with commentary from historians to discuss slavery in America. This documentary does a good job of relaying the anger and pain that slavery brought to America. “White people want slaves, they want us for slaves, but they will rue the day they were born.” This quote from David Walker helps set the mood and the emotions festering in the black people of America. The use of different mediums within the documentary gave it real emotion and depth. The pictures and paintings used help expand the viewers feelings.
The article “The Me Me Me Generation” by Joel Stein mentions how Millennials are a self-centred generation who have been raised with many participation awards and parents who mistakenly believed that strengthening their self-esteem was they key to success rather than focusing more on strengthening up their character and skills. Stein mentions that the younger generation lives mostly through screens, whether those on phones, iPad’s, or computers, and believes someway that it is entitled to success without experiencing the rough situations in lifetime. Stein also presented studies showing that the incidence of narcissistic personality disorder among Millennials is massive. Stein concludes the article by mentioning that this has not taken him by surprise, because this began with their parents’ generation, the Baby Boomers, or known as the “Me Generation.” Millennials seek to make their own mark on the world. This generation exhibits higher levels of work ethic than any other in history.
Do big things really come in small packages? I believe they do because for me the simplest changes in someone’s life can change everything about a person’s life. I have always been the been the little one in the family, the baby and little bro to my siblings. it’s not so bad being the little brother but being the little one means you are probably going to look up an older brother or sibling and will assumably follow in there foots steps whether it’s good or bad. Most people say being the bigger brother is more optimal because you don’t have to get beat up.
An example is when a man wanted a woman he had to pay the most to have her or another man would get her. An example is when Effia’s parents decided to find a way to marry her to James instead of Abeeku because they would get more money out of James (15). There also was a lot of wars between the tribes in this book. The more power a tribe had the more advantages that tribe had. At the end of the book, the people were not as concerned about power because there was not as many wars and slavery was over.

Atlantic Slave Trade Towards the end of class we briefly viewed images throughout the duration of the slave trade from Hitchcock’s slave database. I was intrigued by several categories when I first began exploring through the collection of images. I remember reading in chapter one of the textbook, some of the slave traders would brand the slaves they purchased to keep track of them. I recall from the textbook they branded the woman lightly so they would not damage their breasts or on the back shoulder. In the picture I chose titled “Blake1” it is an African female that is being branded on her back in the 19th century.
Previous studies have revealed that some of them endure critical punishments in schools for minor mistakes.

Lyndon B. Johnson knew he had to out do President Kennedy. He already knew that he had the experience, the allies, and the money, from working in Washington from 1932-1963. Even though he was only 9 years older than President Kennedy, he was almost a relic of the past, so he had to make a boom. In 1964, before his elections, he offered his vision of the “Great Society.” Lyndon B. Johnson said it was a “A place of ‘abundance and liberty for all, it demands an end to poverty and racial injustice’, yet us more concerned with ‘the quality of goals than the quantity of goods.’ It serves not merely ‘the demands of commerce but the desire for beauty and
A huge issue for minorities in their path to equality was being outnumbered; there is power in numbers and it isn’t often that the oppressed group is the larger. For Tom Robinson, the events that took place were a small step forward because he had support of some white men, a few of which haven’t ever supported a black person before. For example, on page 289, Jem makes a great point after Scout asks him a question. ‘“Who in this town did one thing to help Tom Robinson, just who?” “His colored friends for one thing, and people like us. People like Judge Taylor.
