Reed says that all peons are “incredibly poor and lavishly hospitable” (104) to him and they are willing to give up so much because they cherish all that they have in a way that rich never can. The soldiers fighting in the war were barely paid at all in money, and many paid with their lives. They knew that they would not reap the benefits of their sacrifices, but instead the “pacificos who will get the land-those who did not fight” (90). After Reed hears that his dear friend Longinos Güereca, alongside many other soldiers, was killed he felt sick "to think of so many useless deaths” (106) These people became more than just soldiers to Reed, they were his friends who had loved ones and a history and were too poor to advocate for themselves politically so their only option was to

“It is not our differences that divide us. It is our inability to recognize, accept, and celebrate those differences.” Everybody should celebrate everybodys differences, and be thankful that we have such a diverse world.

They go through many struggles to keep their land, but the family always stays together.
In America we have a lot of freedoms. I think that us Americans don't realize how lucky we are to have the things we have and i think we need to be more aware of that. We are free to do most things we want, and we each need to be thankful for our lives as Americans. Also we need to be unique in our own ways. We all need to be leaders and not followers.
During the dinner with his uncle, the previous Monsieur the Marquis, he notices that everyone around looks at him with nothing but “dark deference of fear and slavery.” Even during’s his father’s reign, his family was “injuring every human creature” who came between them for “pleasure, whatever it was” (94). He goes on to describe how if he feels guilty by association that the poor have long been “wrung to the last point of endurance” (95). While lower class are working to make a living under debt, oppression and hunger, Darnay comes from a family that has plenty of money and the power, which allows him to bypass this.

A lot of Holocaust survivors are vegetarians or vegans because they were deprived of meat and any other food with nutritional value. They chose to live their post-holocaust life this way because of their experiences and the memories that they will always carry. The book Maus written by Art Spiegelman is about Art writing about Vladek's (his father's) experiences through the holocaust. Art emphasizes all of the hardships he went through and how the memories have affected him in the present. The theme the past can affect the present is represented through Vladek not hiring anyone to do work for him, Vladek always making Art finish his food, and Vladek's glass eye.
Things have become so atrocious that George Washington had to ask the Congressional Committee for more money. I doubt they have any to give, for they are more focused on the bigger picture, rather than a few deteriorated soldiers (Doc B). Dr.Waldo wrote in his journal, “A general cry thro’ the camp this evening among the soldiers, “No meat! No meat!” -The distant vales echoed back the melancholy sound- “No meat! No meat!” This tells how us soldiers have been starving for quite a while now, and most of us are done dealing with the hardships.
After reading many personal accounts of immigrants and learning about their expeditions to America, it became evident it is not as joyous a ride as many make it seem. Numerous stories are heart retching and devastating. Trying to imagine being in the shoes of those immigrants is almost impossible, as I have been blessed with a wonderful problem-free life. Unfortunately, I am unable to even relate to any of the several issues immigrants encountered daily, as I have never experienced anything they have suffered through. Although, I personally cannot attest to such horrible experiences, I can promote acceptance and equality among immigrants in America.
Normally Henry is often afraid of what may happen next in the war, I just live life day by day, worried about things that are actually relevant to me. I feel that the american flag is excessive. We are all born as human beings, why does it matter what part of the world we’re from? We are all entitled to roam planet earth freely, but due to the fact that america has claimed a portion of land, as well as every other damn country,
Everyone makes mistakes, no one’s perfect, although he made mistakes he would try and find another way around it and try to survive on his own not relying on anybody. He made friends on his journey like the couple, the young girl, and also the old man. They helped McCandless go the right way and not the wrong way. The last mistake he made costed him his life by eating the wrong plant making him paralysed, nauseous, dizzy and much more. The biggest mistake of all was him leaving ending his life with hunger.
