The Holocaust was the worst thing to ever take place in history. Many people lost their faith, their family, young children lost their innocence, and many, young and old, lost their life.

My first time playing hockey was in the heart of winter on a frozen pond located down the block from my house. I went on the pond with my dad and brother for an afternoon of fun and sure enough that afternoon of fun turned into me falling in love with the sport and wanting to play it for the rest of my lifetime. My parents noticed my love for hockey and signed me up for a roller hockey class at my local community center. At first I made a major mistake and doubted myself because most of the kids in my class had already been playing hockey for a few seasons and it seemed like they were on a completely different level than I was. My parents urged me to keep trying and thankfully I never gave up and kept playing.

It was a typical Friday morning—and let’s not kid ourselves, most teachers enjoy Fridays. But this day would be different for first-grade teacher Vicki Soto. When a gunman entered Sandy Hook Elementary, killing twenty-six people, Vicki threw herself in front of her students, while many of her other pupils had already been hidden in a nearby bathroom. And while we mourn the deaths of those women and children who perished, we can see true heroism in what Vicki Soto and others showed on that tragic day.
He was often quoted saying the universe is a “big damn mess”, his satirical nature allowed him to laugh at the terrible things that happened to him throughout his life. While growing up in the Great Depression, he watched his father waste away and returned home from war on Mother’s Day only to find that his mother had committed suicide the night before. During this war, he was captured in Germany and survived a bombing that killed hundreds of thousands of people. After witnessing this and the devastating fate of his family, he, much like other depressed war survivors began questioning God and religion. Most likely, this is what led to him writing Cat’s Cradle.
A recurring problem of epic proportions in my community is the opioid crisis. I am deeply saddened watching and hearing stories of how this epidemic is destroying both individuals and families on a daily basis. I have seen the destruction first hand in my high school which inspired me to join SADD (Students Against Destructive Decisions). I have both counselled and consoled my fellow students inspiring them to get help and, equally important, caring for them during their
The next day, both the student and the teacher disappeared. Then, we learned how Beli messed up with Trujillo’s family but managed to survive. We also learned that Beli’s parents were cursed by Trujillo, too. Everyone who was close to her father were dead including his mistress, and his two beautiful daughters. It is as if the curse is with the family as long as there are still living members.

I once was lost, but now I’m found, was blind, but now, I see.” This relates to the racial biases and injustices in our country. We once were blind to it, but because of this tragedy, we now see. Another utilization of pathos that truly hits home to the audience is when the president says, “the countless more whose lives are forever changed, the survivors crippled, the children traumatized and fearful every day as they walk to school, the husband who will never feel his wife’s warm touch…” This shows how the loved ones of the victims lives will never be the same, and how the shooting will incite fear into the
Many even died of starvation with lack of food on the long journey. This removal also split apart families and ruined close relationships among friends.

These Indian’s tribes forever lived with the memories of their friends and family being killed and continued to remember all of the cruelty they were put through being forced off of their
The war traumatized him and left him with permanent scars in his brain. This is portrayed by the text, "Along Way Gone," when it states, "A memory of a town we had attacked during a school dance had been triggered. I could hear the terrified cries of teachers and students, could see the blood cover the dance floor." Any person who witnesses this will obviously be affected. He has seen countless people slaughtered by war.
