In the novel All the Bright Places, Theodore Finch is a victim of suicide and can be psychologically analyzed in order to show that his death was preventable. In a deep and meaningful passage, Finch describes that “you can’t stop people from dying. You can’t stop them from going away. You can’t stop yourself from going away either” (Niven). He is utterly hopeless and accepted that he will kill himself, has lost interest in life, and fallen into “the asleep” as he calls it or past the point of recover.

In Australia, Aboriginal people face many challenges. Explore and describe at least three key issues that affect educational outcomes for indigenous Australians. Despite co-ordinated efforts of indigenous communities and governments, Australia’s indigenous population continue to experience significant disadvantage (Banks 2007). Clearly evident in lowered literacy rates, high rates of unemployment, social conflict and alarming health statistics, addressing the issue of Aboriginal disadvantage is a matter of national importance requiring immediate attention. Incorporating the intrinsic values of Aboriginal culture within the structure of educational framework, supports self-determination of Indigenous Australians.

The Americans with Disability Act (ADA), was passed by Congress in 1990. Our country just recently celebrated the ADA’s 25th anniversary, commemorating the progression that our nation has made towards ensuring equality for those with disabilities.

Over the last 25 years, our society progressed towards being more accessible towards all; ADA standards were implemented across the nation, however, there was resistance.
