Consequently, he bitterly guards his privacy, saying to Lennie, “this here’s my room... I ain’t wanted in the bunkhouse, and you ain’t wanted in my room.”
In To Kill A Mockingbird Boo Radley is a man who always stays shut up inside of his house which causes many rumors about him to be spread around the town. For instance, at the end of chapter 14 it’s stated “Dill?”/ “Mm?”/ “Why do you reckon Boo Radley’s never run off?”/ Dill sighed a long sigh and turned away from me./ “Maybe he doesn 't have anywhere to run off to…” This shows how Boo Radley is emotionally struggling because people always are assuming things about him that can cause him to feel uncomfortable around others. At the end of the book Boo Radley acts afraid of everything like when it says “Will You take me home?’ He almost whispered it, in the voice of a child afraid of the dark.”

The first person worth mentioning is Crooks. He is probably the most lonely person in this novel. He is black, and he lives in the area which is racist. He lives alone because other men working here don’t like him, he doesn’t take part in any social activities; he is in complete isolation from others.

Theme 1: Family– In North Korean concentration camps and North Korea in general, there was no concept of “family”. Shin was born and raised in the concentration camp, and he did not have a loving or caring relationship with his mother, father, or brother. Shin even saw his mother as another competitor, and he rarely spoke or interacted with his brother. “When he was in the camp–depending on her [his mother] for all his meals, stealing her meals, enduring her beatings–he saw her as a competition for survival,” (16). Outside of the camps, North Koreans also turned in whoever spoke out or went against the leaders of the country, and their rule, even if it was their family members.
When talking about the church, a person must keep in mind the rituals that are performed usually by said churches. Sometimes these rituals are traditional, but you must not forget that the church does attempt to avoid such practices unless they were to adapt to such a stale lifestyle. To do this churches use genres to help impact the action going on in-/outside of the church—by that, of course, churches also vary in actions. Johnathan Swales tells us that, “a discourse community utilizes and hence possesses one or more genres in the communicative furtherance of its aims” (221). The church most dearest to me is none other than Titus Harvest Dome.
In Raising the Bar, Reid discusses how to minister to the youth in the midst of today’s culture. He discusses the difference between the worldly view of adolescence and the biblical view of adolescence, relating that students need to be held to a higher standard. He also addresses the need for prayer and some practical ways in which to improve one’s prayer life. In addition, Reid addresses the need for biblical truth in the life of a student and the responsibility of adult leaders to feed them that truth. Each of these areas of discussion has given me greater understanding of how to work with the youth of today and have better equipped me in my own walk with Christ.
