Hester changed her attire to a plain, darkshade, with no designs, which corresponded to her emotions. There was nothing she could accomplish to reduce the pain of the guilt since the truth was known by everyone in her hometown. As time went on, Hester regained some purport in her town. The townspeople demanded Hester for her skills and soon she did not need to wear the scarlet letter anymore, but she thought she deserved it. Whether the sin was committed in secrecy or not, both Hester and Dimmesdale went through similar consequences.
This brings rise to a totalitarian society where individuals are completely stripped off from any sense of freedom. The grandmother’s physical journey from Mozambique through the Kruger Park is not just great in terms of the lengthy distance, but also in the emotional aspect where her mentality gets challenged throughout the story. However, no matter how tough her journey was, sacrifices were still made to protect those she love. This can be seen as they constantly live in a state of fear, after experiencing the raids by the bandits, Grandmother had decided that they “would go away” from the bandits, away from her comfort zone. Before the journey, Grandmother had given her
In my opinion, a group home, foster care anything like that is traumatizing toward kids in the program. I know that because of experience. I hated foster care because it separated me from my family including my sisters. I really loved them but presently I don't care about them because I basically don’t know them anymore. That's what happens when you separate a family they end up not even knowing the person anymore they can end up to be a completely different
She usually used pathos, one of the rhetorical strategies. I felt bad for how Houston, a little girl suffered, and the work her family did to protect themselves from the hard circumstances. For example, when their family was moved by the army, her mother couldn’t take all of her things, and a dealer tried to buy them at a very cheap price. Her mother didn’t reply to the dealer. Houston describes this situation, “Mama’s nerves were shot, and now Navy jeeps were patrolling the streets.
These three points were how DSS handled the case, denial and blame, and family secrets. The issue with how DSS handled the case of the Stands Over Bull children seemed rushed and somewhat negligent. The way the documentary presented it, she did not exert much attention to finding someone to take these children within their own community. Instead, she crossed several state lines to find a couple to adopt these children, in which this family already had six children. It is great that she found a way to keep these siblings together, but in circumstances where a culture is so different from outside cultures, it seems best to look inside their own culture first.
“Everything the people need.” Not having to think for yourself gets you in the habit of just doing. Never stopping to ask yourself, ‘have I done this already?’ ‘Is this wrong?’ ‘What about right?’ No, we only do, or rather the people from the book only do. Finally, you start to see how unfeeling Mildred is. This happens when she tells Montag he isn’t sick, and shows no sympathy for him. She stated, “You’re not sick.” Then again, when talking about the death of Clarisse, she states, “She was simple-minded,” “That’s water under the bridge.” These quotes show how Mildred feels no type affection toward anyone.
For example, nationalism gives people the courage to stand up for their country, as Marjane’s family did during the war. Additionally, social classes prevent the bond between certain people for no other reason but the poverty or wealth they were born into. This compares to how Marjane’s maid couldn’t possibly fall in love with her neighbor, as they were of different classes. Furthermore, the loss of innocence is a deep concept that became personal for Marjane at an early age. With an unstable government and constant war and loss, Marjane’s innocence was stolen from her early on.
Saving someone other than yourself in a terrible situation is not something everyone thinks about doing, but in this case Stefania Podgorska not only saved herself but 13 others, and they all lived. Podgorska didn’t plan to save all those people it was more a spur of the moment thing, and not only did she help them by getting them food she saved every last one of them; and they all lived to see more days. In life, good deeds go unnoticed, the courage and unselfishness of her mind at that time should not be something someone just forgets about it’s a wonderful thing she did and everyone should know about her. By examining Podgorska and her moral courage it is clear that she deserves all the attention given, and or all the respect others show. Stefania came from a well known Catholic family that served the community, and so, when it came to do what she did i’m sure it wasn’t in her mind out of the ordinary/or heroism.
They were deprived of quality time with their children and not having any choice regarding the wellbeing of their children. Mothers were unwillingly part of a camouflaged money making scheme. They were under the impression their children were up for adoption, but in actuality were sold illegally. Philomena was the victim of the ignorance of other nuns who did not share their knowledge regarding sex. This resulted in an insidious plot, coming to life to which Philomena was apart
Jeffery, however, gave up once he found that his master would not purchase Dorcas due to the fact that she was being sold alongside four other family members. While this is true, there are also many other differences. Another difference would be that Wesley was hurt physically while Jeffery was hurt emotionally. Wesley experiences physically pain such as violent beating and shooting. Jeffery, however, experienced heartbreak when he was told that he would not be permitted to spend the rest of his life with his true love.
He later joined the Job Corps, but later realized he could not make the money like he did in the drug business. On page 144, Wes was passing the streets remaining him of his past, “But the main reason he avoided the streets was that he felt they had nothing for him. He had changed. At least he wanted to believe that.” Wes later made the decision to take the risk to sell drugs for a living. 2) Both environments played a huge role into their personalities and their stories.
The wedding was set up by Janie’s grandmother in order for her to ensure Janie had a stable life as she grew up. Even though Logan was not a bad man, Janie did not love him, and ended up leaving him for her second husband, Jody. Now, Jody was a great man who had ambitions and treated everyone the way they should have been treated in the beginning, but that didn’t last very long. A few years into the marriage, Jody started beating Janie because of his own insecurities that were too much for him to control. The main two of these insecurities would be jealousy and his own aging body.
Should I Save The Day? Society is in the mindset of not taking initiative on issues. As a whole, we rely on each other to take the first step and when one isn’t taken, it leaves the opportunity for growth fairly stagnant. The article “The Dying Girl That No One Helped”, written by Loudon Wainwright portrays humanity in a heart-wrenching, yet honest way. This article reveals a vast amount about human nature through the character’s actions.
In the book it states “ After all the trouble and risk we undertook to get the money, it became useless, we would have been less hungry if we had stayed at the village instead of walking” ( Ismael 2007). This reveals how hard it will be to find food for them to eat and water to drink. DIsease and hunger would find them faster than fresh food and water. Walking miles and miles being on an empty stomach and being severely dehydrated will weaken their bodies. Not eating for hours and getting little to no
