The Cunningham boys went to the school, however, Boo did not. Mr. Radley found him shameful and locked him in the house for fifteen years. One night, Boo stabbed his father in the leg. According to town gossip, Miss Stephanie Crawford, he “...drove the scissors into his parent’s leg and pulled them out, wiped them on his pants and returned to his activities” (13). Although, this
Julie’s Journey “On Tuesday August 11th, exactly 3 days before her 39th wedding anniversary, our beloved Julie; wife, mother, and middle school counselor was horrifically shot multiple times during an attempted robbery at an AT&T store in our hometown of Derby, KS.

Warhol was thirteen years old when he watched his father slowly wither away from peritonitis for three painstaking days (Greenberg & Jordan, 2004). From the time Andrej passed away in the family’s living room, Warhol begged to stay with his aunt and cousin until the funeral was officially over due to his phobia of death. Instead of attending funerals, Warhol believed that they were too abstract and preferred imagining the people who died had simply went on a shopping errand. Warhol’s fear of dying is quite common among many humans that do not accept their impending fate. After enduring a parents death, the arrival to high school became overwhelming to teenage Warhol.
This is the scene where he witnessed the death of his best friend, Alexis Helmer, who was only 22 years old. First of all, “ago” and “glow” are rhyme. Secondly, it provides a image for the reader: the day before, he and his teammates lived together, seeing the sun rise and down, and maybe speaking jokes to each other. But today, the war ,the killing machine, has begun, his best friend has gone, and cannot talk to him anymore. From the image, the authors wants to tell the readers that the war is horrifying, and tomorrow of the soldiers may never come.What’s more, readers can also feel of the sadness of author, for he loses his best friend.
The movie Lean On Me related a lot to things we talked about in class this semester. The first situation was when the head of the district came to Joe and tells him he is nothing and tears him down and that he would not be able to fix the troubled high school. By the head guy doing this to Joe it motivated him to take this as a challenge and created a need for achievement. This is talked about in the motivation chapter, chapter 12. I believe this was the best method of motivating Joe since the high school had so many problems and had so much to be done to turn it around and have the majority pass the basic skills test.
I had a BMI of 37 going into my freshman year of college and my physician warned me numerous times to change my lifestyle. I dismissed their warnings with youthful ignorance. However, there I was laboring away on that treadmill, with only one response to those thoughts begging me to quit, “This pain is nothing compared to how you felt that day.” My dad was never out of shape, but he also wasn’t as healthy as his physician asked him to be. That fact did nothing to stop the heart attack he suffered months before my freshman year at Iowa. There laid my dad, unconscious with tubes protruding
As I entered high school and grew up the world began to change as I encountered the topics of suicide, eating disorders, mental disease and substance abuse on a daily bases. All words I heard before now became my reality I watched my friends starve themselves to shed a couple pounds, my cousin killing himself along, discovered my uncle was an alcoholic and my brother and friends were suicidal. Just last year three kids committed suicide at my school, and many I saw the true colors of multiple family members being succumbed to alcohol abuse. As I never experienced any feeling of depression or need to impress others and have lived a genuinely happy life I was puzzled and began to question why the people in my life thought the way they did and it got me truly intrigued by the psychological world.
