Imagine a person standing before the President of the United States of America, listening to him give a long, boring speech, and then he turns and asks them a question. So they tell him that the speech sounded great, except he did not accurately say, “Ham can only to eaten on Christmas.” Not only do they receive applause for correcting the President, but then they receive a promotion to a high position in the white house.

I think several of us in this class has a relative that identified with Sonny’s brother. I was pleased with the way the story end too. My feeling was that identify was a big theme in the story. Both Sonny and his brother search for who they are. The elderly brother who never understood his younger sibling was always watching him pushing moral values on him, which does more harm than good.
Foster parent report before the visit: The youth had a good night. Alex played with a light that was given to him at the fire prevention event. The youth entered the vehicle asking a lot of questions. I notice Alex was comfortable asking a lot of questions, but does not like when people ask him questions. Alex and I had breakfast at Steak and Shake.
There are many ways John Proctor is represented to be a respectable man throughout the play. Hale wants Danforth to accept Proctor’s confession because Hale believes that Proctor is a good man and he respects him along with the majority of the Salem community, therefore he wants Proctor to live. Hale also knows that Proctor is doing the right thing by not confessing and preserving his good name, so he respects john Proctor even more for dying for what he really stands for. Even though Proctor did cheat on his wife, Elizabeth, she recognizes that John feels awful about what he has done and
We learn the blind man’s name is Robert upon meeting him and at first the narrator is a little hesitant toward Robert, not knowing what kind of questions to ask. The narrator asks what side of the bus Robert sat on, as though it mattered, but after a little the narrator warms up to him. While the three of them ate dinner, the narrator “watched [Robert] with admiration,” because he was amazed at how fluid everyday activities were for him (paragraph 45). In the beginning of the story, the narrator was very blunt, but we see that once he meets Robert, he starts to think a little before asking things. The narrator even seems slightly unsure about things when he answers questions.
Elie Wiesel gives certain detail that has helped me tell who is a positive or negative character by describing the way he felt when he was around them. Moishe the Beadle was a positive character he was a teacher of Jewish Mysticism. The little town of sighet was loving of Moishe the Beadle he was an exception to all the other poor people in town. Elie gives details leading me to feel Moishe the Beadle is a positive character in this book. In the book Eli describes him self-being happy when in the presence of Moishe the Beadle, they would study in the synagogue till late at night.
In Night and MAUS, Wiesel and Spiegelman attempt to outline the impact of the varying reactions the Jewish population had about the same idea of fathers and sons. This can relate to society as a whole in the sense that decisions of people with the same morals and principals can not be compared in a setting as mitigating as such. However, the effect is just as great on the individual. Elie stresses the guilt he feels every day for being so inconsiderate for his father despite his plight. Artie alludes to the difficulty he has writing the book he intended for his readers.
Reuven was glad that Danny came to visit again despite their previous encounter. after sending Danny away, he was surprised at his own actions and had come to regret it at the end. His own father reminded him that the Talmud says that if a person is willing to apologize for his own wrongdoing, then you must at least try to understand and forgive him and that is exactly what Reuven intends to do after feeling angry and depressed with himself from what he had said to Danny. Throughout this chapter, an unlikely friendship between the two boys develop. They begin to talk and learn more about one another rather than dwelling in fateful day of the ballgame; in other words, they let bygones be bygones.
As I see it Wiesel is trying to say that when he remembers what has happened to him so far, he feels hopless. But because he remembers, he must not feel hopeless. Memory is power and it will save humanity and in this case the Jews. In the book Wiesel shares his memory of many people warning the Jews about the coming of the Nazis, which the Jews didn 't believe in and act upon. These mistakes of neglection caused them to loose their loved ones.

Judaism also teaches that the purpose of Torah is to teach how to act correctly. Some also believe that the Torah is commanding the Jews to believe in God. Christians teach that God also wants you to perform good works, but that alone is not enough to lead to salvation. Many Jewish scholars and theologians, understands Judaism as a religion of love, says Bloom. It says that he argues that one can understand the Hebrew concept of love only by looking at one of the core commandments of Judaism, Leviticus 19:18, “Love your neighbor as yourself”.
