On how people should fight and retaliate for their voices to be heard and not let the government do whatever they want to do, without questioning it. In the beginning of the essay Williams’ tone is skeptical and unsure, but as the essay progresses she seems to get more passionate and furious. Williams tone completely changes when her father reveals important information about what she thought was just a dream. “It was at this moment I realized the deceit I had been living under.
Tobin suggests that, “She argued that the meaning of any individual word or statement is not absolute but rather is determined by the context in which it was spoken” (9). Hutchinson’s word was being turned against her because how the leaders were interpreting it. She then proceeded to question, disrupt, mock, and sarcastically reply to the leaders (Tobin 13). Hutchinson was frustrated that her word was not being accounted for because she was a female voice, so she started to make a statement with her words. “There’s a gap between a speaker 's meaning and a listener’s understanding; and that words only gain meaning through the mutual agreement of the speaker and the listener…”
When they are first testing their traps and they are digging ditches she says, “We broke with many of our cultural procedures by doing this but we knew it was the only way to save ourselves” (197). This seems to be a constant theme during the last half of the book because at some point they have to put their traditions aside to be able to protect themselves and she’s pretty adamant on making that clear. Her people did not believe in violence but were still considering that very idea that they did not believe in.

A letter would be the best approach, specifically for a character like Nick Carraway who showed his feelings regarding Daisy’s act to run away from Eat Egg during Gatsby’s funeral. I used persuasion in the method of asking question in the text in order to make Daisy feel sorry for herself from what she have done regarding her actions. These questions also motivated Daisy to leave Tom due to his rude and dishonest traits. The text also shows, reflects and focuses on revealing and showing Nick’s character in the play and viewing his thoughts about other characters like Gatsby, Daisy and Tom. Moreover, the text also draws my interpretation of Nick’s character in the novel.
You see her emotions towards her mom change from feelings of love and admiration to feelings of anger, betrayal and hurt. This change is evidenced by the girl’s thoughts as she wishes she could remove her mothers’ arms from around her and sink her teeth into her white forearm.

Between the first and second paragraph, a tonal shift occurs leaving behind the soft-handed tactic of definition and entering the harsh and somewhat accusatory use of rationale. This shift in tone serves two purposes. At first, it prepares the reader for the blame she is to get ("should have considered"). By shifting in tone at this point, Johnson also indicates that beyond preparation for blame, the mother should also leave behind any waiting "hope.
It seemed a little uncanny to me, and I listened to her breathlessly. I did not quite like it, and thought it better not to keep her mind on the subject, so we drifted on to other subjects, and Lucy was like her old self again.” Once more, Stoker’s audience can see that Mina has set up a division in Lucy’s identity as a means to disassociate her with all of the horrific peculiarities going on with
Gouvernel further reinforces the idea that she is being picked on with the sentence “I didn’t say anything. I just looked straight ahead.” This sentence emphasises the anxiety that has overcome her as she is placed in front of her bully: Barry. This overall creates a distressed tone. In contrast to this, Dac also implements simple sentences into his memoir, however, creating a celebratory tone as opposed to the distressed tone that Gouvernel creates in her memoir.
Malala was featured in a BBC documentary, won Pakistan’s National Youth Peace Prize, and was nominated for the International Children’s Peace Prize. All this press drew the Taliban’s attention, and they made a plot to kill.

The loss of those she wished to protect are what caused Najmah to avoid her triggers. Her rejection of those who could possibly help her heal from her PTSD shows the effects of pain she experienced. Losing her mother and baby brother not only left her alone, but it also is what kept her alone for much of her emotional journey. (CS) The extent to which Najmah loved her family is revealed in her reactions to anything that concerns them; by avoiding her triggers to protect herself, it demonstrates how immense the effect of losing them
