Conservative political and cultural commentator writer for The New York Times, David Brooks, in his “Tales of the Super Survivors” article, argues that people are able to endure traumatic events, and are able to become stronger after these tragedies if they accept their realities and continues to have faith in themselves and the future. He supports his argument by first using allusions to the 9/11 attacks in the United States show how most people did not develop stress disorders and still have joy and love in their lives. Then by using metaphors that compares life to a series of stories, he explains that people who decide to write new stories for themselves can move forward and not be haunted by the past. Finally by employing the use of a
In the second week of September, Brian Burke came to our school to talk about acceptance of who you really are. The presentation was largely based around his son’s involvement in the LGBTQ community, and how you should not be ashamed of who you are. He correlated it to our unit “relating to others” by speaking about how when we accept others we become better ourselves. We should not turn away people based off of sexual orientation, culture, and general differences, but rather welcome them. No matter who you are you can have a normal life that even includes athletic activities.

Everyone in high school could use a hero and LaBarge found his. Thoreau was an inspiration to LaBarge and influenced his decisions and actions, much like the “heroes” of today. Today people, especially teenagers, look to celebrities as a guide. They believe that if they can have the same style or act the same way as their favorite star, then they will be accepted or become popular. This is not always the case.

By creating a play on words, my group is able to mock parents deemed as “teenager pros” or experts.
