I first attempted to drive when I was 14 years old it started at empty parking lots and slowly progressed to streets. I was super eager to get behind the wheel because I thought that once I learned to drive I would finally be free. But as soon as we got out the empty parking lots and moved onto streets with actual traffic I panicked. And I sadly discovered that driving wasn’t for me and that I was a bad driver. I wanted to start driving because I thought it was so cool to be able to drive back then when we were all starting to learn.
This means that the drivers have to go fast or else they will be hated by all the other drivers. Theodore then shows the consequence of this, which is a deadly car crash. The driver, a plant worker, finally gets an escape from the machines through death. This illustrates the societal ill of “Highway: Michigan”.
John Wells was driving near the mouth of Middle Fork when his car was covered in black wastewater. He saw that the valley below the dam was covered in an ominous layer of black waste. Wells tried to warn the residents of Buffalo Creek of the impending disaster but was unable to use the phone due to power outages. He was powerless to warn Buffalo Creek of the impending disaster. The water raged towards Buffalo Creek until the wastewater finally emptied into the Guyandotte River fifteen miles later.
You feel around frantically for an off switch, but it is nowhere to be found. Eventually you find an old beaten down control panel, but you can’t see what it does, you don’t know what buttons do what. But eventually you have to learn how use the panel to slow down the ride and lessen the blows or you will have to get used to all the hits. Eventually you hear other carts, you can get support and ask for help; but no track is the same, no panel is the same, and no rider is the same.

Oh, the look on his face would be funny. When I saw the camper door open and that the dads were woken up, I knew this was gonna be an all nighter. He drove that truck fast around the camp yard. “What are you doing up this late, why!?” I didn’t feel so good about the what the future held.
My brother and I, however, wanted to ride the Journey to Atlantis ride and we promised we would leave after our turn at the ride. We got in line and just like the day before, it began pouring almost immediately, hitting the scorching pavement and causing a musty smell to linger in the air. At this point, my family could not stand the rain anymore and my brother and I were forced to get out of the line and into the car as soon as possible. When we were exiting, I noticed that the rain was pouring faster and faster, causing immense puddles in the parking lot. Because I was the only one with deep pockets, cousin gave me her phone to put in my jacket and as we got closer to the car, I pulled it out to check what time it was.
Walking along the road, he is stretching out his arms as in his dream of childhood, until George, a work mate offers him a ride – they go off to an unknown distance, at full speed, “he had it floored and we were going flat out”. This fast speed symbolises his breaking point – he finally has changed his mind at how he approaches his role, his family, and his life. He approaches it in a carefree manner and has let go – money is no longer important. Due to the change and deterioration of the American economy at the time, people became more reliant on the man. Although he could have said no, he had obligations left right and centre, so this change on his role was somewhat uncontrollable.

I am the oldest of three siblings, the oldest of my cousins from my maternal side, and the first from both maternal and paternal side to receive an education outside the country Nigeria, better yet the United States. It is a privilege that a few attain and for many Nigerians a dream come true. As grateful as I am, there are a lot of expectations accompanied. Although, doing what is best for me is the common mindset in today’s society, I cannot help but consider such mentality, the waste of an opportunity. For an American citizen, the future is bright and filled with potential.
My Grandpa used to tell me “No one has ever become poor by giving.” Friday, August 19th, 2009, I shall never forget what I learned at the “Trenton Soup Kitchen”.

I remembered the stories he used to tell me about how every summer he used to take his car to the annual “New Jersey Car Festival.”
