Father Cry by Billy Wilson talks about a fatherless generation. He tells stories about his life that relates with each chapter. The first chapter talks about how many people grow up in a single parent home, and how in this generation especially, you can hear the desperate cry for a father. It goes on to say how we shouldn’t miss the opportunity to minister to people because so many of them are in desperate need of an awakening. After these two chapters, the majority of it talks about spiritual mothers and fathers. He writes about how in a time like this we should all have someone to go to as well as be that person to others. He gives many examples of spiritual mothers and fathers from the Bible. For example, Moses was a spiritual father to
The book and movie Johnny Tremain, both share many similarities and differences. In the beginning of the book, John Hancock gives Johnny Tremain a duty to make him a sugar basin. But in the movie, Johnny’s long lost relative, Merchant Lyte gives him the responsibility to make him it for him. The other difference is that Isannah, Dove, and Dusty is not recall in the movie as well. They do not cover anything with the laziness of Dove, Dusty, and the sick young girl, Isannah. One of the main conflicts of the book is Johnny’s hand. Most of the people that read the book believes that Dove is the main reason his hand is now deform. But in the movie, Ms. Lapham is. On the other hand, the book clarifies that Johnny cannot get his hand fix, but in contrast of the movie, Dr. Warren offers to fix it for him.
Also, Johnny is like "The Rose That Grew From Concrete" because she had started off life in his concrete stage or his adversity stage with his family, broken free of that when he had saved the kids from the church, and then grown to his rose stage, when he was in the hospital, about to die, talking to Ponyboy when he had matured and developed into an adult.

“Stay gold, Ponyboy. Stay gold…” That quote is from The Outsiders by S.E. Hinton set in mid 1960s Tulsa, Oklahoma. It is about Ponyboy’s struggle to grow up among the fighting of the Greasers and the Socs. One character that stands out in the story is Johnny because he is a supportive character to Ponyboy. He is also a dynamic character, which means he grows and changes, and a round character, which means he has several sides to his personality. Johnny can be described as quiet, nervous, and loyal.
Johnny Reeves is a very important character throughout the story “The Witness”. In the story “The Witness”, Johnny is the minister of the KKK and preaches about how bad blacks are to him. Some of the problems that Johnny creates in this story are usually with blacks, because he is racist and against them. The reason he is like this is because he is a part of the KKK and has been brought up to be this way. In this story, I argue that Johnny Reeves is one of the main problem causers because of his back ground of being apart and the minister of the KKK.

When talents are discovered, it is easy for us to place all our worth and purpose in that one thing, despite the warning “Don’t put all your eggs in one basket”. However, this is exactly what Johnny did in the book Johnny Tremain. As a naturally talented silversmith, Johnny became prideful and foolish, placing all his value in his workmanship. But one day, all of his aspirations disappeared when he burnt his hand, leaving it crippled and useless. Johnny was compelled to leave his days of serving as an apprentice for a silversmith behind him and earnestly search for a new occupation.
Dalton Trumbo’s novel, “Johnny Got His Gun” tells all about a father and son relationship that many people may envy for. Trumbo characterizes their relationship with a respectful tone, yet Trumbo also makes the love and trust the father and son share very apparent throughout the novel. Trumbo is able utilize literary devices such as third person point of view and a lack of formal punctuation, using syntax to help the reader have a better perspective on the relationship the father and son partake in.
On October the 19th, I saw the performance of Love/Sick written by John Cariani, at the Hyman Fine Arts Center theatre on the Francis Marion campus. The play was made up of nine approximately ten minutes long scenes where two people were experiencing either personal or love problems. The various scenes ranged from two strangers kissing in the supermarket, to a husband and wife that were going out for supper because they were “hungry”. I thought of the purpose behind this play was to show the audience by using many different love scenarios that no relationship is perfect. It does not matter what stage of the relationship that you are in, problems can occur. The director, Glen Gourley, did this is a comedic way, where the scenes were not taken that serious but the purpose was revealed to the audience and each topic of the different appearance was very serious.

Before delving into the relation between the name of the chapter and the events that unfold within it, it is important to understand the meaning of the word: Vortex. While it is not untrue that a vortex could be likened to an unstoppable force of nature, such as a whirlpool, twister, or fire tornado, it could also be described in a fashion that relates it to the doings of mankind. A vortex can be "something regarded as drawing into its powerful current everything that surrounds it"1. Chapter XI focuses mainly on the happenings that took place at Larkhill, the only known origin of 'codename V' (80-83). V is a metaphorical vortex in the sense that everyone he comes into contact with gets sucked into his mayhem, particularly anyone who was employed
