Due to this reason the essence of sport is lost for example learning to play and work together as a team, maintain a healthy body image and collaboration with members the other team. Statsky also mentions the rash selection criteria the children are put through and only the one that already know how to play beforehand are selected. This leaves the children depressed and disappointed. In the end, Jessica Statsky tries to make readers aware that the well-being of their child is more than coming home with a trophy. (Word count: 179) Strong Response I strongly agree with Jessica Stastky essay “Children Need to Play, Not Compete.” The essay is based on authentic facts about the harmful effect of these competitive sports have on the children.
A hero should always do well by his followers; Richard only proved to be loyal to himself only. He abused his people by saying he was “enforced to farm our royal realm, the revenue whereof shall furnish us” (1.4.45-46). King Richard taxed the poor to fund his luxuries and wars, without thinking of how it affected his people. King Richard thought like a man instead of a king and this lead him to not only losing his tittle, but his credibility. Instead of becoming a tragic hero, he became a tragic fool; not only did he abdicate his thrown, because he could not handle the pressure, he showed that was not fit to be a king, even if he was born for it.
Martin Luther King a famous social activist once stated, “we must develop and maintain the capacity to forgive. He who is devoid of the power to forgive is devoid of the power to love.” When referring to these words it is shown how forgiving we can be for people that we hate or dislike. In William Golding's book The Lord of the Flies his character Jack shows the actions of power, fear, and acceptance. People in power are more afraid of losing that power because it may show you as a failure, and to take control is much easier than taking responsibility for actions because there may be consequences, but most of all forgiveness is the hardest to do because it is just too hard to let go. Jack was a different type of leader than Martin Luther
She also doesn't have a strong enough motive against Abigail besides the affair, which she had already moved on from. “I do not judge you. The magistrate sits in your heart that judges you. I never thought you but a good man, John (with a smile), only somewhat bewildered” (Miller 1295). The quote shows evidence of what Elizabeth is feeling towards her husband.
Mildred and her friends believe that reading anything that causes emotion to come out is bad. Mildred’s friends voted for their president based on how handsome he was compared to the other candidate, “’I think he’s one of the nicest looking men to become president”’ (Bradbury 93). They didn’t vote for the good of the country. Mildred and her friends are defiantly ignorant and this is proven in their actions. Knowledge is a common theme throughout the noel.
The society believed that being better than the rest of their ‘brothers’ is immoral. Having more knowledge than another meant more individuality and the society did not appreciate that. Individuality is a characteristic that differentiates one person from another, it is what makes one person themselves. The society in Anthem removes the idea of individuality. “There is no crime punished by death in this world, save this one crime of specking the Unspeakable Word.” (Rand 49) The society effectively took away their individuality with the Unspeakable Word, ‘I’ by creating fear against the word.
When Equality takes his discovery to the World Council of Scholars, they are angered by his discovery of light and tell him that they have “much to say to a wretch who have broken all the laws… How dared you think that your mind held greater wisdom than the minds of your brothers.” (Rand, p.71). Similarly, in communism and collectivism, people are expected do things for the group rather than themselves. Just as Equality’s invention of light was rejected, Rand’s novel The Fountainhead was also rejected by many publishing
In the first chapter, Baron Thunder-ten-trockh and the Baroness are introduced to represent the pretentiousness attitudes of the noble. Although he has no honest qualifications to be the Baron, his position of power is simply justified by his lineage and who he was born to. The Baroness, Candide's mother, even refuses to wed Candide's father because "he could only claim seventy-one quarterings" (Voltaire 19). These two characters are meant to represent the lack of a true hierarchy during this time; there is no difference between commoners and the noble. Voltaire formulated the Baron and Baroness to condemn the supposed class ranks and to show these positions are all only based on luck and connections.
Everyone, except for Cash, begins to think he is mad when in reality he tried to “hide her away from the sight of man” (215). Cash saw this in Darl thinking that “Sometimes I think it aint none of us pure crazy and aint none of us pure sane until the balance of us talks him that-a-way” (233) Cash is the only person in the Bundren family who saw Darl going to the mad-house as a good thing without having to hide their “inner truth.” Cash said Darl going away from the family “is better so for him. This world is not his world; this life his life”
Having kids play competitive sports many times contains of middle schoolers developing a poor attitude because they think they 're better than everyone else . Although many people argue that the young teens learn to become a “better sport” , see things differently such as trying hard for what they want. Others argue that teens nowadays don 't known how to have fun, they 'll take things more serious than it needs to be. I will argue that kids who play in competitive sports are more likely to develop a bad attitude in which nobody wants their child to have. My first reason has to deal with the attitude of the parents can tend to lead their teens to acting the same.
This can be hard to do on the grounds that each child is left unsupervised sooner or later, so it is best to know about what and where kids are at all times. One final thing parents can do on the off chance that they see their children doing something incorrectly, they must tell the child that the activity isn 't right. This will offer the kid some assistance with beginning to make the separation between good and bad conduct. It is a reality today that TV impacts a kid just as much as a parent. Kids see characters on TV they find fascinating, and after that impersonate activities of the character on the screen.
