Intro #1 Imagine a man, going to bed after working hard for civil rights and his religion. He goes to sleep and in the night, the police sneak in and place bombs in his windowsill. The night is quiet and peaceful, serene, when an explosion occurs in the nearby church. People rush outside, hostile and armed, worried about their religious and civil rights leader.

“You never really know a man until you stand in his shoes and walk around in them.” For Scout from To Kill a Mockingbird, this just meant imaging how someone else sees the world. John Howard Griffin, on the other hand, took a more literal approach; in order to understand the degree of prejudice the black community faces, he dyed his white skin black. He then took a plunge into the deep South — the most segregated part of the country. He didn’t change anything else about him — he kept his name, experience, dialect, history and personality — to find out the truth about the racism the other half deals with simply because of the color of their skin.

“It is your reaction to adversity itself that determines how your life’s story will develop.” – Dieter F. Uchtdorf. Two different people, who both endured slavery were continuously being knocked down, were able to achieve greatness and respect. Sadly, both of these upstanding men bore slavery, they had extremely incompatible experiences in slavery. Booker was freed in his teenage years and did not bear heinous and sinister acts against him; on the other hand Fredrick witnessed and withstood twisted actions that no one deserves.
In the poem “Richard Cory,” written by Edwin Arlington Robinson, and “Glass Ceiling,” written by T.R. Hummer, the authors demonstrate a common event that happens in almost everyone’s life, which is shielding yourself from your true emotions, and this in return may lead to devastating consequences. When someone is hiding their true feelings, they are putting up a front to convince themselves and those around them that everything is fine, when in reality it isn’t. Robinson and Hummer have both clearly incorporated a common theme of shielding your true emotions, however, they convey the theme in a way that is different from one another. In the poem “Richard Cory,” Hummer tells the story from a third person point-of-view and shares the perspective

Some of his most famous plays, Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, Sweet Bird of Youth, The Rose Tattoo, and The Night of the Iguana, showcase his life in both the same and different lights, for they convey the multiple meanings through similar themes, such as ones based on sexualities
I am writing this letter to inform you on the progress that I made from having you last semester in Modern II and how I continue to grow and develop as a dancer in Modern III. During the last semester of Modern II, I set three goals for myself that included getting stronger with inversions, working on increasing my stamina, and taking risks during class. From last semester to now, I personally feel that as a whole, my goals that I set for myself have come a long way. In addition to working in the studio extra hours and going to the gym here and there to better myself, I have focused inside of the classroom on writing down feedback that is given to me from peers as well as my professor. Writing down the feedback has helped me when going into the next class and focusing on the corrections I have already got as well as looking at things that I set for myself.
