I chose to write about Elisa because she is a very interesting character and is talked about a lot. Elisa has depression and believes that her relationship with scooter made it go away. I know that Elisa has depression because in the story she said on page 26 "i don't need them anymore. i don't feel you know... "depressed" Dru finished. Elisa didn't really tell anyone about her issues except for a few people, not even scooter knew I know this because she said on page 20 "he didn't know what i knew
He disagreed with the treatment given to the innocent people of the cities he conquered. He regretted being so harsh and became merciful in his campaign. One such example is when he let a woman go free even after she admitted to having killed a soldier and admitting that she herself was the daughter of a man that had once opposed King Philip, fearless of any repercussions that could have come from her confession. Alexander was also kind to the family of Darius with whom he was fighting. He provided them with decent living space during their fight and even let them know that Darius was not truly dead when they grew distraught at the idea that he
In one joke he discusses how kids today talk back and that was a thing he never did. He then imitates a girl talking back to her mom by yelling at the audience and then he gets on one knee to act to pretend to be the mom using his white lady voice he talks to her daughter and does not even hit her. When he does this he makes it seem like white people do not hit their children. On the other hand a Mexican parent would just hit you without hesitation. He then goes about how his grandma would hit on the head for anything because he did not do as she said and then he would start crying and she would question, “Why you crying?” (he repeats this line over and over).
After her step sisters volunteered her for the testing she learnt not to trust anyone and with not trusting anyone she became a very independent person. Cinder is being lied to constantly by the doctors that she has just gotten so used to saying “Another lie” (Marissa Meyer, 126). This shows that she has learnt to not trust many and to be very independent and do things on her
At first, when they went to the same daycare, they only glanced at each other, and Max thought Freak’s crutches were cool but that was all they thought of each other. Later, once Freak moved in next to Max’s house, they got to know each other better, and they realized that they could be friends. Since Freak was smart but couldn’t walk around well, and Max was big and strong but wasn’t very smart, they realized that combined they were better than any person alone. That’s when they became Freak the Mighty. Freak rode on Max and used his intelligence to steer Max, and Max did what he was told because he relied on Freak.
The whole family has to draw again. The irony of the lottery is that it’s random and everyone has the same chance of being picked, it also exposes what kind of character Mrs. Hutchinson is. Mrs. Hutchinson at first is thought to be a caring mother, but when under pressure, instead of attempting to protect her children, she selfishly wanted to include all her children, specifically her married daughter, in the drawing to make them “take their chance” (299), to improve her chances of survival. Mrs. Delacroix and Mrs. Hutchinson are good friends, joking about Mrs. Hutchinson’s tardiness to the drawing. Although they’re friends, “Mrs.
In a conversation with her best friend, Laurie states,“Amy, I’m serious. The wave is hurting people. And everyone’s going along with it like a flock of sheep.” (Strasser ). This is courageous because not only does Laurie stand up to Amy and try to tell her the wave is terrible, she also publishes an anti wave article. This is all done even though she knows an immense horde of students dislike her because of it.
As the other women waited for their husbands to draw, Tess urges her husband “Get up there, Bill.” Regrettably, there seems to be a drawback attitude emitting from Mrs. Hutchinson once she discovers she had the winning lottery ticket. It was this shift in attitude and behavior that made Mrs. Hutchinson the prominent character in “The Lottery.” Tess was a unique character in the sense that she was disparate to the norm of a heroic mother or housewife. Today, we witnessed many events where a mother will break their necks and sacrifice themselves in order to provide their child a
“The Hunger Games” contains a lot of similarities and differences.It was easy for a reader to identify more differences than similarities. There is a lot of similarities.For example here i some.Katniss received a mockingjay pin in the movie and novel.Another similarity is that Peta actually fell in love with Katniss, but she didn’t feel the same.The other contestants came back as mutts as they did in the book.Some other similarities is that Katniss got Peta some medicine for his leg. There is a lot of differences between the movie and book version of “The Hunger Games.” One difference is that Thresh killed Clove more violently in the novel than the movie.Seeing that made me feel different about Thresh.It made me feeel
This is something to be joyful about at least, it 's distracting from the persistent cannon fire that prevents my daughter, Angeline, from sleeping. My wife pleads for us to leave before it gets more serious as I help the other men repair the holes caused by the cannonballs in the walls. I explained calmly, as panicked as I was internally, that I had to do this to defend my fellow Texans. I argued that now because the Declaration of Independence for Texas was signed, other countries would flock to our aid. She simply frowned before walking off to help the other women load weapons.
