This causes the other kids to get jealous of her, and for them to see Margot as an outcast. Later in the story, this causes a major situation, and these actions cannot be undone. All of the actions that happen towards Margot from the other kids, are caused by jealousy. With these actions, we can come to the conclusion that jealousy can get the best of people and it can surely cause problems. As mentioned before, the other kids see Margot as an outcast, and they all look at her sideways because she is constantly gloomy.
The short story All Summer in a Day is about children growing up on the planet Venus were it rains nonstop. The sun makes an appearance only once every 7 years. Majority of the kids living there don't even remember what the sun looked and
First of All Summer in a Day and Zero Hour there are poor decisions made due to their hunger for power, and things they did not have. One example of this is on page 2 of All Summer in a Day where it says, “‘It’s like a penny,’ she said once, eyes closed. ‘No it’s not!’ the children cried.’ The children would have listened to Margot and tried to understand instead of immediately shutting her down if they weren’t being manipulated by their lust for the sun they have heard about. They treat her unfairly because they don’t have what she got. While this may not help them, the kids have been mislead so they can not focus
All throughout the short story Margot doesn’t participate and have fun with her peers on Venus. If Margot didn’t want to be bullied she should change and think about what will happen based on her choices. Instead of constantly being depressed she should loosen up and have a good time with the other children. “‘And this was because she would play no games with them in the echoing tunnels of the underground city.

Emily Brent was taking care of a young girl who got pregnant before marriage, which is against what Emily believes in so she kicked her out of her home, which then the young girl drowned herself. This is an awful situation, but Emily did not plan on having the girl kill herself, she didn't plan on it at all like Thomas did. Emily thought what the girl had done was wrong and she had the right to make her leave the home, it may be cruel but it doesn't deserve a punishment as severe as death. Thomas Rogers, on the other hand, does need that punishment because nothing has happened yet. ¨There was never a word against us.
The children don’t trust Margot’s memory, because of jealousy and lack of respect. To conclude, the short story All Summer in a Day, by Ray Bradbury, doesn’t support the claim that skepticism should be used at all times, and it tells to be a little more leaned
She wants to to make him feel sad and to make him sad to see her suffer and act distraught. Calphurnia also states: “Caesar, I never stood on ceremonies, /Yet not they fright me.
