However there was one thing that could stop him. Louie had been drafted to the air force, where his real journey begins. He found himself trapped in the ocean with two other crew members that survived. Although the chances of him finding his way home were slim to none, Louie’s family seems to believe in him, especially Pete as he says: “‘If he has a toothbrush and a pocket knife and he hits land, he’ll make it.’” (145) Pete knew Louie wouldn’t give up, and would work with what he has. Louie’s determination and hope continues to push on as he is stuck on the raft with his other two crewmembers.
You want justice and courtesy and human concord, things you never knew you wanted.” He explains himself so he won't sound crazy; he says that after battle he always felt alive because knowing that he was so close to death made him want to be a better man. In the face of death he wanted to atone for his sins and try to live another day. Half way through the fourth paragraph author Tim O’Brien shares a stream of consciousness. In this stream of consciousness Tim O’Brien is sitting in his foxhole looking out on a river thinking about the next morning and whether he might die or possibly kill a man. In the fifth paragraph the author starts it by saying “Mitchell Sanders was right.
For example “As if by magic, Uncle was suddenly at his side” and “ Uncle pointed out a clump of rocks up ahead and told Salva to walk as far as the rocks”.This means that Uncle Jewiir expressed his compassion for Salva by always motivating to continue on his journey. “Uncle had always shared the animals and birds he shot with everyone in the group”, by this quote it shows that Uncle Jewiir cared about the people around him. While other people saw Salva as “weak and useless”, Uncle Jewiir always cheered him onward and he was only one out of most people to see the potential in Salva. This matters to Salva because even

In his short story, “The Most Dangerous Game,” Richard Connell reveals the transformation of an arrogant hunter. Mr. Sanger Rainsford is a talented man who has a knack for hunting. While he and a friend are traveling for a hunting trip to Rio, Rainsford accidentally falls off the boat after hearing a gunshot in the distance. He survives and swims towards the infamous ‘Ship-Trap Island’, realizing out that there is more that meets the eye of the isolated island. After finding clues of inhabitants, Rainsford stumbles upon an enormous building and soon meets General Zaroff, eventually discovering the general’s habits and winning for his freedom off of the island.
This is evident when he asks Ron Hall, “I heard that when white folks go fishin they do something called ‘catch and release.” Denver Moore continues to explain himself by saying, “…it really bothers me that white folks would go to all that trouble to catch a fish, then when they done caught it, just throw it back in the water.” Ron Hall and Denver Moore overcome each of their prejudices by an investment of time with one another. The time each man invested in this unlikely friendship taught Ron Hall and Denver Moore to look beyond the surface and go deep to the heart. As I read the story of Ron Hall and Denver Moore overcoming their mindsets and prejudices, I was reminded of my own story of meeting a homeless man. The story of Ron Hall and Denver Moore touched me personally because I had the opportunity to serve lunch in a
Groc records in the nineteenth paragraph that there was a resolve by staff from the Canadian fishery and oceans department to work with experts from Vancouver Aquarium to relocate Luna to his original feeding waters. In the next paragraph, Groc adds that, during a sea game in 2004, there were attempts to capture the orca by captors from the two agencies. Despite all the efforts of the captors, Luna was excited by the singing of native paddlers, who also called out the orca’s name, making the orca swim back and forth excitedly, but haphazardly. Personally, I think that the paddlers’ action during the event, along with the friendly social interactions cemented Luna’s conviction that he had finally established an abode among humans. Arguing from this perspective, I believe that, had the paddlers not motivated Luna’s haphazard swimming behavior, the captors’ efforts of capturing Luna would not have been thwarted.

Odysseus and his men had travel to the island of the Lotus eaters when he drove “... them, all three wailing, to the ships, tied them down under their rowing benches, and called the rest: “ all hands a board; come, clear the beach and no one taste the Lotus or you lose your hope of home.” (Book 9, lines 48-52, textbook). Odysseus saved three of his man and brought them back to the ship, saving them from a long weary death. Odysseus also taught his remaining man a lesson and showed his men how clever he was in this dire situation. As Odysseus is fleeing from the Laestrygonians, he “...shouted rapid orders at my shipmates: ‘Put your backs in the oars- now row or die… my ship alone… we… escaped our death yet at heart for the dear companions we had lost.” (Book 10, page 159, PDF). Odysseus had left almost always meant to die with only saving a few which may have caused a sense of controversy and confusion.
Marlin’s worst fear was resolved when Nemo found his way out of captivity. Father and son were reunited but the meeting was cut short with another test. A large fishing net captured Nemo once again and Marlin had to fight against himself to trust Nemo and all the others to work together. The net broke and everyone was free including Nemo. Marlin and Nemo lay on the ground while they bask in the calm that engulfed them.

By using similes, symbolism, and parallelism, the author uses fly fishing to represent the cycle of life. During the story, Maclean uses various similes to compare the river with life and family. For example, he shared with the audience that the “common love for the river would bring them back as a family.” This shows how sacred the river is to every man in the Maclean
I am reading “The Bass, The River, and Sheila Mant” by W. D. Wetherell, and I am on page 3. So far this book is about a boy who falls in love a girl who lives next door. He takes the girl out on a boat ride to a concert but realizes that he forgot to take his fishing line off of the boat until a very large bass comes along and pulls on his line. He tries to hide the fish on the line, because he knows that Sheila does not like to fish so he’s trying to hide the evidence. In this journal I will be questioning and connecting.
