The Old Man and the Sea The Old Man and the Sea shows how an old unlucky fishermen becomes a legend fishermen in the small town he lives in. “Santiago is an old Cuban fishermen who has had some bad luck for the past eighty four days” (Marie 2).

King George III and Parliament restricted the colonists in almost everything they did. Next, the Boston Massacre helped lead to the American Revolution. It proved that the British were in charge and violent, and the colonists were enraged. Lastly, colonists had no representation in Parliament. Laws and taxes were passed without them having a say.
With a large mob yelling at the soldiers “lobster backs” which is a derogatory term towards the red coats. The soldiers were getting agitated and where dead set on rettalinating. Then bang five dead and panic in the streets of Boston. This all stemmed from the unfair Townshend Act which, taxed the colonies extra for goods such as tea, glass, paint, oil, and other necessities. This act changed how the colonies, especially the Bostonians, thought about The Crown (England).

Cultivating Empathy I saw empathy as being the same emotion as sympathy. I didn’t think there was much of a difference until we started to define both terms and found ourselves relating to the text read for class. Reading these texts, The Woman Worrier by Maxine Hong Kingston and Oryx and Crake by Margret Atwood, have helped me to understand that empathy is how we connect to the text topics. Sympathy is to feel for the person while empathy is feeling what the person feels.

The Parliament passes the Tea Act in 1773. From then on the course of history will have many more down hills throughout the years. Some background information is that the colonist were mad at the government and at england because they were putting taxes on the people out there conscient the colonist didn’t want anything to do with England so they boycott the shipping orders coming in and had The Daughters of Liberty make clothing for them. The Tea Act cause the colonists to be mad at England and ultimately lead to their showing of anger in the Boston Tea party, both events impacted the American Revolution.
The American Revolution was a time period where there were 13 colonies in America exploring more of the land everyday, The british shared the land with people who are called the pilgrims and ended up soon turning into Patriots and after that Americans. Great Britain started abusing their colonists while there were shootings and many taxes of colonists, many were unfair, and this led to the revolution.
