Until the Pahlavi dynasty was taken the place by Ayatolla Kohmeini after the Islamic revolution, wearing the veil was banned by laws (Heath 31). However, after the Islamic revolution, people start wearing the veil. They are veiling because
I don’t ask her why. While walking out my mom stops gives the bag of McDonalds to the old starving man at the door. I felt so proud of her. After seeing the things that happened during the holocaust, i think to myself “how could people be so ignorant” . I thought does people didn’t even know what compassion was, but then I though “maybe they did feel it but were too afraid to show it, they were afraid to stand up.
“No ma’am, but I can sew on the buttons in the evenings after supper, I won’t mind the extra time, please let me―(Bristow 3).” Celia is like this because of her religious beliefs for example in the bible it says “And the second is like, namely this, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.

This shows that they risked themselves to be able to shelter a Jewish girl and a Jewish book, away from the Nazis. Serif and Stela also risked their lives. In my opinion all these examples shows how the Kamal’s expressed their kind values and intentions to be able to do this out of kindness. Brooks also uses the Albanian and Muslim community when talking about the traditional weddings and Serif and Stela prove that the beliefs and values that are said about a Muslim wedding are not always true. The Albanian language and beliefs are two things that saved a Jewish girl’s life and the actions that both the Kamal’s did for her risked their lives.

Clay gets the tapes and he believes he should not be on them so he begins to investigate, listen to the tapes and see why he is on them. The first reason why the book 13 reasons why should not be on the banned book list is because it teaches teens to think about what they say before they say it. for example hannah and her friends were at a cafe that they always hang out at.
Have you ever been bullied, well I have and it doesn’t feel so good does it? Here’s a story about how I got bullied just because of a small crush. It was the fourth week of middle school and my two best friends, Aaliyah and Aisha, were walking with me to lunch. We usually sit on the ground next to, Mrs.Nutter's room it was the best place to sit, at least that’s what we thought.

There are numerous chapters that we have covered in the Harper Collins Study Bible that spark my interest but my mind keeps traveling back to the book of Ruth. Although the book of Ruth only contains four chapters, which all flow together equally, chapter 3 intrigued me more than the rest. The chapter opens with Naomi explaining how she needs to find security for Ruth, her daughter-in-law. Naomi begins to speak about her closest relative Boaz and persuades Ruth to “…wash and anoint yourself, and put on your best clothes…”
Marji demonstrated this when her parents returned from Turkey with punk clothes for her. “I put my 1983 Nikes on, and my denim jacket with the Michael Jackson button, and of course, my headscarf” (Satrapi, 131). Under the caption is a picture of Marji wearing her denim jacket and her headscarf.

A majority of people see the idea of hijab much like Kolbenschlangs in "A Feminist View of Cinderella" the author expresses, “This willing acceptance of a condition of worthlessness and her expectation of rescue (as a reward for her virtuous suffering) is a recognizable paradigm of traditional feminine socialization.” (Kolbenschlang 2). Kolbenschlang also mentions, “As a dynamic metaphor of the feminine condition, it illuminates the double life that many women experience: the attraction of work and achievement, perhaps “celebrity,” outside the home, and the emotional pull of the relationships and security within the home” (Kolbenschlang 3).
Like the saying says, "You can 't judge a book based on its cover. " If people do this, then they won 't improve themselves as an individual. Last year, I use to work at this fast food restaurant. I remember one of my older coworkers, who happened to be a Hispanic woman, taking an order to this man. He was being so rude to her, yelling racial comments to her that the manager had to get involve.
