In 1776 as he was representing peers, he signed the Declaration of Independence.

Christopher, just graduating high school, is expected by his father to go to university “You planning on going to university?” (King), and Christopher replied with “I’m going to rest first.” Christopher is evidently unsure of what he wants to become, but he want some time to himself.

Cox speaks of them in terms of human beings rather than statistics of a heinous crime. “They each had goals, talents, friends, and family. They are you and they are me” (6). By discussing how each person had led normal and meaningful lives up until their untimely deaths, Cox is able to portray them as equal to straight males and females. This pathetic appeal evokes sorrow because it calls attention to the fact that those harmed from the shooting could have been anybody’s friend, brother, or sister.. Also, when Cox refers to the victims as being one with him and the audience, he reiterates how beyond the fact that they were gay, they were normal people who just wanted “to relax, to laugh, to connect…” (6).

The only just punishment for Roof is death, as long as he is alive he will think he has done the right thing by killing those people. If the trial would have taken a turn where Roof was given to privilege to go back into society there would be no doubt he would execute the same crime, and potentially on a larger scale. Capital punishment saves other innocent lives from people such as Dylann Roof

Claire Turner American History Test I The American Revolution The Second Continental Congress declared independence from Great Britain in 1776 because they were being treated with unfair and unjust taxes and laws. The Second Continental Congress was a representation of the colonists and colonies as a whole, to Britain. In the beginning of the Congress the majority wanted to stay loyal to “The Crown,” and make peace with it.

One colony in particular that stands out as taking the leading role in the independence of America is Massachusetts, for they received the true wrath of Great Britain.
They have even proceeded to some violence, and burnt him in effigy.” Despite the evidence of hostility in the colonies to the south, Hinshelwood was hoping to be appointed a tax collector in Halifax.
