In many ways, Rebecca is also a peacemaker. In the midst of
“How dared you think that your mind held greater wisdom than the minds of your brothers?” (Chapter 7, paragraph 14) said the members of the council. They did not want to believe what was in front of them because it was created on his own. As they continue to go on about their disappointment they bashed him with words, “to hold yourself as one alone and with the thoughts of the one and not of the many?”. (chapter 7, paragraph 15) The words that were coming from them showed him deny and pain. Although the members punished and refused to accept Equality’s invention, he never let that bring down his motivation.
Instead, if they love each other they could find a way to stop this tension. Acts of violence and hate are never the answer to any problem, yet people seek it just to have fun, show pride, or be gallant.

All of the Greasers were hurt really bad, the only thing they got for this loss was the Socs being chased out

Huck tries to interject that the point of the fable is not that Solomon chose to threaten to cut the child in half, but Jim is adamant that Solomon lacks common sense, saying that a man who would act as Solomon did “doan’ know enough to come in out’n de rain” (95). Jim then states that the fact that Solomon had so many wives, and subsequently children, was the cause of his casual attitude towards the safety of the child. He tells Huck that a man with only one or two children would be much more careful about their physical well-being, calling on his own personal experience as a loving father with only one wife. Huck marvels at Jim’s stubbornness and decides to change the

It is sad to say that I catch myself saying “my dad”, referring to Mark and not my biological father. I have spent most of my life with my step father who has been more of a father figure than my dad will ever be. Mark and I have a unique relationship, as I have adopted some of David’s characteristics, but that is not the only reason. We enjoy spending time together and being able to talk to each other; stories from his past and stories from my past. My family knows that we when we ascend to heaven, David will be there.
My son. Came back to us”(27). As noted, just in these few words you can understand the loyalty and faithfulness to his son despite knowing he 's not a great guy.

She will be able to let go of her bitterness as long as she sees him. They will be able to continue their life right from where they left off.

As Matt probably knows what I 'm talking about the feeling of being your little girl 's protector and her safe place to feel at ease. I 'm still in tears thinking about how much I love that Angel. Brad and Ben soon you will experience that and WOW is all I have to say. Just wanted to share with my fellow
After the soldiers return to the base, the soldiers on the assignment are unable to answer to their superior, instead “they just look at him for a while, sort of funny like, sort of amazed, and the whole war is right there in that stare. It says everything you can 't ever say. It says, man, you got wax in your ears. It says, poor bastard, you 'll never know—wrong frequency—you don 't even want to hear this. Then they salute the fucker and walk away, because certain stories you don 't ever tell,” (O’Brien 56) as a result of their loss of sanity and rational state of mind.
But I also became a little heavier, because I was getting farther from Mom.” (pg. 52) Oskar losing his dad at such a young age is tragic. As smart he is, he should try and move on for the sake of his mother, because he still has a mother that cares about him.
Our men are afraid and have started to desert the camp we have set up here at Valley Forge. So if I stay, it might encourage the other soldiers to re-enlist too. Congress hasn’t been any help either. They don’t even trust General Washington anymore, but he’s one of the few Generals who was actually
