The Reconstruction was a period of rebuilding relationships between the North and the South in the U.S. It was a significant period for ex-slaves (freedpeople) to seek a better life in the U.S. and one of the significant eras in the U.S. history that historians have been debating. After the end of the Civil War, about four million ex-slaves gained their freedom from the institution of slavery. But most ex-slaves struggled with the meaning of inequality and freedom during the Reconstruction. Historians have been debating about the evaluation of the Reconstruction.
Did you know that depending on the sport, students who play sports in college most likely have less than a 2% chance of becoming professional athletes? At middle schools, high schools and colleges across the country, everyone is arguing over whether or not students with failing grades should be allowed to play sports. In my opinion, a good education is so very important for our country’s youth, especially the athletes. Not a lot of kids are good enough to play in the top college sports programs in the country. But even those who are, still have an astonishingly low chance at making the professional leagues.
He didn 't have enough money to run away with Mattie, but he could 've waited until he had enough and then go to Mattie. Instead, he decides to not think the situation through, and to just run from all the problems like he always has. This attempt puts them in a worse place than before. This event made Mattie paralyzed, and he had to end up living with two bitter women. Any decision that he would 've made other than what he did would 've improved

So he stay with his miserable life, meaning he could never be happy. He is also isolated physically from the world.
Meeting Homer Barron was her biggest change from her old self, because her father did not allow her be in any relationships, but she went out in public with Homer “driving in the yellow-wheeled buggy and the matched team of bays from the livery stable” (454). Consequently, this was only because she was living in her own reality and believed that Homer would be the one to marry her. Homer was “not a marrying man” (454) and would not marry Emily, but she refused to accept the denial of marriage from him, so she killed him to keep him with her forever. She stayed within her house to keep herself in the Old South. When she told the men to see Colonel Sartoris, she was not aware that “Colonel Sartoris had been dead for almost ten years” (452) at that point.

It is very hard to live with forgetfulness, impaired motor activity, depression, and a low IQ without any help. He has to go through the pain of knowing that the temporary intelligence he had received was all going to leave him. Charlie also does not have a stable income so it would be hard for him to learn more through an adult school like Miss Kinnian’s. By comparing Charlie’s mental state before and after the experiment, one can easily see that he was much more mentally stable before the
But from all of his mistakes he learned a very valuable lesson, “I’ve learned that it doesn’t matter how many times you failed. You only have to be right once” (Mark Cuban). And it 's with this idea in mind that Cuban finally made a name for himself in business, reality tv, and the NBA. I really enjoyed the story of Mark Cuban because his story is a great example of what it means to never give up, no matter how bad things look. And I feel that this is a great message when it come to the American dream, because it just proves that no matter who you are as long as you are determined and willing to give it your all anything is
In the autobiography/ slave Narrative titled A Narrative of Frederick Douglass, Douglass expressed his pursuit for Life, Liberty, and Happiness. Life and Liberty are quite similar ,but Life implies future dreams and Liberty suggest freedom.

If I had been caught, and something had happened to Liesel, Hans or Rosa, I don 't know what I would have done. I left my poor mother at home so I could seek safety but putting another family in danger to save my life was never my intention. When the inspector came today, I came to the terrifying realisation that everywhere I go, danger follows. I can’t bear the guilt of putting their lives at risk any longer. Although I must stay put with the Hubermann’s for now, I can definitely see myself leaving Himmel Street in the near future to secure Liesel, Rosa and Hans’ safety.
American teens My life compared to the Americans in the documentary is totally reversed compared to theirs. For starters, my parents hopefully don 't expect anything from me at all, only that I get through high school and get a job. They wouldn’t say that I wasn’t special just because my grades were above average but not #topoftheclass grades, they would instead encourage me to try harder in a good way I think. Then the Americans always have a pressure built up on them, for if they don’t get through high school and don 't get into college they would be nobodies and society would think of them as losers and failures.
He couldn 't just leave him here. I can 't leave Hector,” (Louis Sachar 219). Stanley never would 've spoken to Zero at the first, seeing as he viewed him as a nobody just like all off the other boys. All Stanley wanted to do was fit in and be accepted/popular for once, but Zero acts as his mentor to seeing the right way. During their journey to Big Thumb, Stanley felt weak, but, “as long as Zero could keep going, he could keep going too,” (Louis Sachar 162).
Biff Loman grew up as his father 's prized possession: the apple of his eye. Always receiving extensive appreciation, - which was everything Happy longed for - Biff was raised in a world in which he could do no wrong. Willy supported, and even promoted his misbehaviors, such as when Biff boasted about how he had stolen the football from his high school and Willy responded by “laughing with him at the theft,” (Miller 30). Yet, this acceptance and constant praise did prove to be detrimental to Biff as he grew up and became an independent man in the world. Because he could never live up to his father’s expectations, Biff felt that his life was worthless and that he wasn’t good enough, which arguably turned him down the path that ended him up in jail.
