Throughout his life, Mallam Sile had a childhood illness that caused perpetual impaired vision however he refused to seek medical aid. The reason for this is that Mallam Sile believes that “God is the one who brings illness, and he is the only true healer” (95). It is apparent he is a firm believer of his faith due to the fact that he would wear his “white embroidered Mecca hat-- worn by highly devout Muslims as a reflection of their submission to Allah” (95). Later on in the story, Abeeba, Mallam Sile’s wife, fights for the debt Samadu never paid. The result of that fight causes the rest of the village to show more respect towards the tea-seller.

The imagery allows the reader to visualize the scene in which the author is observing from. The simile applies to Kenyon’s own life, as her husband must have made her feel lucky; she realizes how happy she is to be with him. The timid suitor is a symbol for how happiness is fleeting and that it does not stay for long once it does come; through the use of the simile, Kenyon is able to express her ideas
Both Harriet and the Narrator consistently repeat the words, in a manner that devalues it. Ironically, in a similar fashion to the transformation in the family’s happiness, the word is most common in the beginning in the novel and begins to be used less as the story progresses. The narrator, for instance, describes the relaxed atmosphere in the house as the entire family visits, by stating that the couple “breathe[s] happiness” (25).

For Romantic poets, there is no greater force upon humans than one of the many forms of the imagination. For William Wordsworth, this force is exemplified in memory. The greatest example of his exploration of memory comes from "Lines written a few miles above Tintern Abbey, On Revisiting the Banks of the Wye during a Tour, July 13, 1798. " In it he displays his opinion of memory as a powerful source of enlightenment and pleasure through his interaction with the natural world. It becomes something he recalls time and time again to ease the ills of everyday life, giving him solace that he hopes can also affect the companion of the poem, his sister, Dorothy. Through his experience within "Tintern Abbey," Wordsworth presents his view that memory is a powerful balm that can allow its bearer some degree of relief from the adverse situations that a person may face throughout life.

Griet now faces this journey alone, unable to turn to her family or Pieter for help in “slaying the dragon”, the dragon being the truth, that Vermeer had been painting her.

For now physician assisted suicide still depends on the patients state of health, but a new question arising is whether someone can have assisted suicide if they are just tired of life. If someone is tired of life because they have medical issues, but just not as severe as a terminal illness
Haelle did not include if the disease decreased over the years. The article would have been better because the article would of had enough keypoints. I believe the article needed more information to support the main idea of her writing. The information was very clear and it made sense. Parents should be more careful and take responsibility.
Character Essay Have you ever heard of the 26 kisses challenge? Well in 26 Kisses by Anna Michaels, Vi created the challenge over the summer for something to do after she had a chronic break up with Mark. The way the challenge works is that you have to kiss 26 guys (one for every letter of the alphabet) during a certain time period.
