In Confession of Dorothy Day’s, The Long Loneliness, on pages 9-10 it states, “Going to confession is hard – hard when you have sins to confess, hard when you haven’t… You do not want to make too much of your constant imperfections and venial sins, but you want to drag them out to the light of day as the first step in getting rid of them.” This relates to the CIT question, “What does it mean to be human?” As humans, we all makes mistakes, no one is perfect.

From the time I was four years old to around eight years old, I visited my great aunt and grandparents who lived in Canada for a week or two each summer. Among the memorable experiences of these short trips are: squealing and smiling as I fed ducks near my grandparents house, staring up at the ceiling of the local swimming pool as I floated on my back through the “lazy river”, turning my head away from the television screen in terror while watching movies that I was without a doubt too young to be watching (Needful Things based off the Stephen King novel being a great example of this), and learning about insects and other creepy, crawly creatures at the local bug zoo. Throughout the yearly visits to this strange version of a zoo, my favorite
In the first place , Simone de Beauvoir describes ambiguity (human ways of thinking about life) through the following categories: nihilism, cynicism, humorism, seriousness and adventurism. In the light of “ existentialism” de Beauvoir makes an implication that there is no difference between philosophy and life. In like manner, she's also aware there are wrong turns that can be taken through the journey of questioning one’s own life.

In this modern era, literature has become a part of the life of people, not only adults but also children. This literature serves not only as a means of entertainment or education but also to organize thought, to test beliefs, to convey what is valued, and to attempt to influence the actions and thoughts of others. It is not surprising that for most of us, early childhood memories include a favorite story. From among the many stories that we have heard or had read to us, there is often one story which we relate best and influence us deeper than the rest, a story that touched an emotional chord, somehow reflecting a keenly felt need, concern, or set of values.
