Out of all of the stories, “What The Dogs Could Teach Me” by Gary Paulsen and “The Sniper” by Liam O’Flaherty, “Flowers” by Alice Walker had the best description. “Frayed, rotted, bleached, and frazzled-barely there-but spinning restlessly in the breeze.” With this quote, you can easily picture the old noose swaying in the breeze. A quote from “The Sniper” says “His hand trembled with eagerness.” Unlike the other passages, “The Flowers” creates a vivid image in your mind of what’s going on in your story.
Throughout history, there have been many literary studies that focused on the culture and traditions of Native Americans. Native writers have worked painstakingly on tribal histories, and their works have made us realize that we have not learned the full story of the Native American tribes. Deborah Miranda has written a collective tribal memoir, “Bad Indians”, drawing on ancestral memory that revealed aspects of an indigenous worldview and contributed to update our understanding of the mission system, settler colonialism and histories of American Indians about how they underwent cruel violence and exploitation. Her memoir successfully addressed past grievances of colonialism and also recognized and honored indigenous knowledge and identity.

How Dogs Benefit Our Lives I have loved dogs since I was a young girl. My mother always made sure that I had a sidekick to play with since I was an only child. Some of my fondest memories were with my little white Jack Russell Terrier named Rosco. He loved riding around our big backyard in the passenger seat of my Jeep, and floating in the orange rubber boat in my kiddie pool with me.
In the movie “Shooting Dogs” there were 3 distinct characters that closely resemble the ways Aristotle, Kant and Levinas lived their lives on a daily basis.

Stories are the foundation of relationships. They represent the shared lessons, the memories, and the feelings between people. But often times, those stories are mistakenly left unspoken; often times, the weight of the impending future mutes the stories, and what remains is nothing more than self-destructive questions and emotions that “add up to silence” (Lee. 23). In “A Story” by Li-Young Lee, Lee uses economic imagery of the transient present and the inevitable and fear-igniting future, a third person omniscient point of view that shifts between the father’s and son’s perspective and between the present and future, and emotional diction to depict the undying love between a father and a son shadowed by the fear of change and to illuminate the damage caused by silence and the differences between childhood and adulthood perception. “A Story” is essentially a pencil sketch of the juxtaposition between the father’s biggest fear and the beautiful present he is unable to enjoy.
