That impact caused the truck to overturn, at which time Huy was ejected. The truck came to rest on its top in the middle of state Route 83. Speed and alcohol both appear to be factors in the crash, in which none of the three involved men were wearing seat belts, said Haun, noting both drivers were tested for intoxication, and toxicology results are pending. Circumstances surrounding the crash and its cause remain under investigation, with many questions yet to be answered, said Haun, who said it has yet to be determined which driver is at fault.
When you turn on the nightly news and all you see is the bad in the world, the hurt, and the corruption that has engulfed us as a society, it is nice to see someone do something not because they will get paid or become famous, but because they know its simple the right thing to do. This story fits the concept of a hero most similar to Bernardo’s explaination of a hero. Riggs’ saved his family and risked his life not because thats what people would expect but because he had the responsiblity to take care of them. Just like Bernardo states, he did this “because he loves them and wants to”. Riggs displayed the kind of courage it takes to be a hero.

I think Corey Wood is worthy of admiration. There are many reasons I think this, the first one is he stopped to help when he saw someone on the side of the road who had been in a bad car accident. As it says in the text “they noticed a young man on the side of the road. He was covered in blood, they stopped to help.” I think this makes Corey Wood admirable because he could have easily just called 9-1-1 and waited for them to arrive but instead he took matters into his own hands and helped the boy himself.
The book shows how two Mexicans came to the US in pursuit of the American Dream. Another well to do couple had just moved to Topanga.

Art wasn't very helpful, mainly because he had no idea who it was and didn't want to talk about the shellacking he had received.
They solemnly prayed for the injured truck driver as the paramedics placed him in the Ambulance and then drive away. Sheriff Johnstone drove over, as they were sluggishly moving towards the pickup, and motioned for them to get in the patrol car. Wearily they slide into the back seat, when Estelle Louise shut the door the Sheriff says, “The driver of the truck, Mr. Dents was able to get out of the truck, before the fire started and thanks to heaven he was not seriously injured. We had a chat before the paramedics took him away and he told me he was in a dang hurry to get home and out of the rain. He admits he was speeding and lost control of his truck.
In this quote, the Wilson’s car fully broke down and they are going to need to fix it rather than just put less weight. So, Tom comes to the rescue by saying, “You take out some of that stuff in the truck an’ then all you folks but me an the preacher get a move on.” (pg 228) This quote shows that Tom helping people other than his family and in a way of affecting their life.

Contrasting between the two criminals is the funny part of the task to think of ways to differentiate between the two. Bill is so different from his partner, because he was getting harmed by red chief (the boy they kidnapped) while Sam wasn’t getting touched. Bill is getting injured back to back and Sam’s getting tired of red chief hurting his partner in crime. Bill insisted for Red Chief to go home, but for some reason he said no and he wanted stay and play with Bill and Sam.
Growing up with this disease has been the most challenging obstacle in my life. It has taught me to be proud of who I am and as ironic as this may sound, it has made me a stronger person. It has also taught me that being strong has so many variables. It doesn 't just mean getting through the rough times, it means accepting yourself and appreciating every great moment given to you. Going through this journey has also taught me that everyone has their own insecurities and that you never know what a person may be going through.
Ascher’s juxtaposition between Compassion & Fear Barbara Lazear Ascher, in “On Compassion” Gave two scenarios in which a woman gave a homeless man money when he had stared down the lady and her baby, questioning whether the offering was out of fear or compassion. Ascher then gives another scenario where a homeless man walks into a bread shop silently inside the shop. Moments later a french woman walks out of the kitchen with a hot cup a coffee and food to give to him. Ascher then questioned if the french woman gave the man food out of her heart or she just wanted him out. Out of fear of disturbing her customers and losing sales.
