In Harrison Bergeron, people who are above average have to wear handicaps to make everybody equal Kurt Vonnegut used satire in Harrison Bergeron by exaggerating the people in this society in the future. One example is the handicaps that everybody who was “above average” had to wear. In this society, if you were very smart, you would have to wear a handicap in your ear that went off every 20 seconds, so he couldn’t think beyond the average human’s abilities. In this future world, the handicaps are supposed to make everybody equal. Some examples of handicaps would be weights you would wear if you are very strong, a mask if you are very pretty, spectacles with wavy lenses if you have great eyes.

Hi Daniel. From reading your post, you seem like a pretty chill person! I’m very surprised that in your group of friends in middle school there wasn’t a ‘leader’. Usually, there is that one person that tends to stand out a little bit more than the rest, and sometimes without necessarily wanting too, they are seen as the head of the group.

I feel that the speech that you chose was very unique. Robin Williams was such an amazing person and he truly connects with the audience every single time he speaks. I agree on how important it is for a speaker to maintain eye contact at all times to demonstrate respect and that he put effort at learning the words and at the same time being extemporaneous. Confidence is also a very important factor and Williams showed it throughout the whole speech. You did a wonderful job, just remember to include the main points and how he managed to pass from one point to another.

There could be many themes to ¨The Pearl¨ by John Steinbeck. Those could either be about greed, wealth, family, etc. But, just one word does not best explain the moral of this story.
