If students don’t have to deal with being bullied, then everybody would be happy. For instance, my sister when she was in school, she used to get bullied every single day. They would call her 4-eyes, they would knock her books out of her arms, push her around the hallway, and then she would come home crying because of how they tortured her in school. She then decided to send an anonymous letter to her principal asking him to please start grading students on their conduct. She also thought that she might add to the letter what “some students” were doing to her everyday so she did.
The news today is filled with people destroying themselves and others, similar to the novel. It would be so easy to give into the darkness and give up on the hope for a safer place, but optimism keeps the world spinning. Much like how Montag realized how crooked society was and tried to make changes, people in the real world are trying to fix broken parts that others are making. The faith some people have inspire those around them, and the sense of purpose they had previously lacked is now an optimism they can't
Jonathan Swift has an excellent grasp of Pathos making his argument very persuasive. Throughout “A Modern Proposal,” Swift makes it a point to use ideas and terms that dehumanized people and their children. This causes the essay to make the reader feel uncomfortable and slightly detached from the world. It appeals to the moral side of people. Many people use this kind of method when writing in order to make the readers feel more sentimental.

While everyone in town believed the crying teenage girls that claimed witches were upon them, Rebecca Nurse used logical reasoning and claimed that they were acting just like regular teenage girls. Reasoning through tricky situation is a skill I also possess. Through the beginning of ninth grade I used reasoning to make new friends. Many people wanted to be my friend, but some of those who did told lies about people that I had been talking to in order for me to give more of my time to them. I disregarded the lies and today some of the “bad people” are now my friends.
In an article named “When Good People Do Bad Things” by Ann Trafton, it talks about how good people do bad things. When people join groups rather than being on their own, they tend to do things they usually aren’t used to doing. A study shows that ”when people are in groups, they “lose touch” with their own morals and beliefs, and become more likely to do things that they would normally believe are wrong”(Trafton). With that said, those people are stepping out of their comfort zone to do something they don’t do often or at all. And they realize the consequences after
Many students had the same experience Victor did, making it relatable. Also, Victor embarrassed himself while trying to talk to Teresa. He was in English class with Teresa and got called on by the teacher. “‘Yes, now somebody give me an example of a person--you, Victor Rodriguez.’ “Teresa,” Victor said automatically” (Soto).

The population despises successful people because they are able to achieve the things others wish they were able to and the direct response to this anger and jealousy. Envy consumes the souls of every living being on earth, whether
Social norms, however ridiculous they may seem, seem to affect all of us. This even includes those who society already sees as outcasts. When drug users feel more comfortable admitting their abuse, they tend to seek help more often. Reducing stigma allows them to access resources that they otherwise would have been too ashamed to pursue. Another way to reduce drug abuse is by creating syringe exchange policies where users can take their dirty syringes and get clean ones in return.
