1. Samuel Adams established a committee of correspondence and formed a communication network between Massachusetts towns that stressed colonial rights. The burning of the Gaspée roused other states such as Virginia, Connecticut, South Carolina, and New Hampshire to set up their own committees of correspondence that would communicate with other colonies. 2. The committees sprang into action after the passage of the Tea Act, which relieved the British East India Company of paying taxes on tea it imported to Britain or exported to the colonies.
I am grateful to experience what it is like to have an extraordinary employer. Not many people can say they had the chance to work for someone who is not only a strong leader, but an exceptional mentor. I had the pleasure of working as a Residential Assistance for Mr. Joseph at Florida Memorial University for a year, and I could not have asked for a better experience. His dedication and passion for the students at Florida Memorial University was refreshing and uplifting. In Residential Life, our main focus was the residence’s housing experience; however, Mr. Joseph sincerely cared about each student’s wellbeing and success.

He not only achieved the American dream, but also gave the ultimate sacrifice of any American – his life. Because of his importance, Sports Illustrated created two different magazine covers to illustrate Pat Tillman's death.

The Little Rock Nine changed the face of segregation in the entire country, and it was the help of nine African American students. These students were denied enrollment from the Governor of Arkansas at the time, Orval Faubus; and then later was overturned by President Dwight D. Eisenhower, when it made national attention. They continued their fight through the process until granted what they deserved in the beginning. In May 17, 1955, the U.S Supreme court had its famous Brown vs. Board of Education of Topeka, Kansas.
Secondly, Would you ever have the guts to shoot your friend? George may have done it with dignity and for the best but i still don’t think that was okay. George should have looked out for Lennie better than just leaving him alone, or at least let lennie go. If i had that problem, i would have talked to my friend and helped them or go away with them. Shooting your “friend” isn’t being a friend.
Andrew Jackson, keep or throw away? In today’s time some people want Andrew Jackson off of the 20 dollar bill. Some people think that it would be wrong to do this.

Writing Prompt: “Harrison Bergeron” A major theme in Harrison Bergeron would be, equality doesn’t always mean better. Before you read something like this you think that if everyone was equal that the world would be a better place to live, but as Kurt Vonnegut, Jr. showed us in his writing that equality isn’t all cut out as it says it is. You can see this on page one, “every twenty seconds or so, the transmitter would send out some sharp noise to keep people like George from taking unfair advantage of their brains”.
They say that I have no impact. That my words have no weight in a planet of over seven billion people shouting to have their voices heard. In a world plagued with famine, war, and global warming, it is normal to feel as though we do not have any influence in the crises of our planet. However, I believe that change begins with just one person. Receiving the Calvin Coolidge scholarship would allow me the opportunity to transform my dreams into existence.
The story, Harrison Bergeron really shows the importance of diversity and for every individual to have a right to be unique. The government trying to make every thing completely fair is actually unfair to people who can 't get any excitement in a world like this. Limiting peoples thinking will also strongly slow any advances in technology, maybe even to a stop, so they might never solve some of the very important problems they face. Same with strength, if someones is in danger to an animal or a malfunctioning machine they will need to be able to escape. So really a world thats completely fair is impossible to create.
Laws are the key to having a well-mannered society. They are created with the intention of bringing good to the civilization. However, even actions with good intentions can end with devastating results.

Bo Jackson is composed of three traits that make him an epic hero, Humility, National Heroism, and Supernatural Foes. Bo Jackson is one of the best athletes of all time if not the best. He competed at the highest level in two different sports, by not just playing them, but by performing at the highest level in both sports. He competed in the All Star Game for baseball and hit leadoff, and he played in the National Football Leagues Pro Bowl. There are so many stories about Bo Jackson that will make a person question if the things he can do are even humanly possible.
Introduction: Harrison Bergeron by Kurt Vonnegut, Jr. was published in 1961 and this sotry is a normal case of the author’s capability to blend science fiction and satire. It is the best useful story of regulation of absolute equality ever composed. In this paper, I will be highlighting the Harrison Bergeron as a picture of socialism and communism, considering the equality rule of the teachings to uncover the absurdity (Joodaki & Mahdiany). Harrison Bergeron tell the satire of the misconception of what equality involves. Vonnegut has written this story to tell that all people have strengths and weaknesses which make each of them uniquely individual (Gradesaver.com).
