Everyone there must have been able to clearly visualize what it was like, and how the field was soaked with blood. He describes how horrible the fighting really was when he talks about the “smoke and hot lead pouring right through” the bodies of the soldiers. Coach Boone uses this imagery to draw the connection between present day and the past. He states that they are still fighting the same way, that there is figurative, and literal, smoke and hot lead pouring through their bodies by the way his team and community act toward each other. All this is for an appeal to their emotion.
John Colter and Tom Murphy are the two explorers that discovered the same land that is now called "Yellow Stone National Park". John Colter had gone by himself in 1808. He had discovered hot springs, bubbling mud pots, and exploding geysers. But when he told people no one believed him and no one else went because they called it "Colter 's Hell". In 1986 Tom Murphy decided to go there and look at it and some photographs, when he got there he saw wild life and everything John Colter had seen almost one century ago.
Choosing Home I had chosen Sitting Bull’s speech he gave for he was honest and true in every word he spoke that is why it is a short speech he went straight to the main ideas. In Sitting Bull’s speech, “The life my people want is a life of freedom” he explains why he and his people wish to live freely. Bull also explains his beliefs as a Native American from the Sioux nation he believed that he was put here on earth for a reason. Bull’s speech compares his people to those of white color. He expresses the unfairness to be told to live on a reservation “The life of a white men is slavery” (Bull 169).
Lucas Hayden was a strong, tough boy who grew up on a farm in the deep woods of Missouri. He was tall, with a mop of brown hair and blue eyes that could pierce deeper than any kind of dagger. Although he was very quiet and shy and first glance, Lucas had a knack for mischievousness. Grown up on that Missourian farm, he was certainly no stranger to hard work, and took pride in doing his part. Even more so, he would go to all ends of the earth to please his father.
A hero by definition means someone who is admired, idealized for courage, or outstanding achievements. Sitting Bull who was a man that fits in all those categories was born in 1831 at Grand River. There are many heroes in this world, but Sitting Bull was viewed as a hero to many people. His inspiration against racism, helping his people in anyway he can, and the saving of many indian lives. Some people might see Sitting Bull as villain, but that depends on which point of view you take.
When it comes to writing I, for the most part have no clue on how to go about it. I have never exactly seen myself as a strong writer but there have been very few times where I would have said that my writing was weak. By no means do I think that I have the skills less than that of a high school student but at the same time, I wouldn’t go on to state I have the skills of an English major or even an English minor. That is my reason for taking WRT 098, I would like to improve my skills as a writer to at least the level a college student is supposed to be on as a freshman or maybe at an even higher level. My greatest fear about writing is that I try my best and it turns out to be one of those examples on what not to do in front of the class.
In this essay I will write about the strengths and weaknesses of perception as a way of knowing. Perception is the way we perceive the world through our senses. We use all five of our senses, which are sight, hearing, smell, taste and touch to understand the world and interpret it. We can then say it’s a Primary way of knowledge. We can also say that, because the senses is the way our body communicates, we have at least three more senses: kinesthetic sense, which is our awareness of our body’s dimensions and movement; vestibular sense, which is the awareness of the human’s balance and spacial orientation; and organic sense, which is the manifest of the internal organs (for example, hunger or thirst).
I am going to start by talking about my past writing experiences and English classes in general. From a young age I was pretty challenged in activities like reading and writing. As I continued on my educational path and receive more help in these areas I got a lot better. Around fifth grade I began to excel in my reading and writing abilities and my teachers helped me a lot with this. I decided to take the basic educational path in seventh and eighth grade for the English area.
