Archer Morales was the one who was standing in front of me and he was most certainly not dead. He looked very much alive. Well rather annoyed, but still alive. “This has got to be some horrible nightmare that I’m having,’’ I say as I stand up and start pacing. “And you are obviously still dead and I’ll just be back in my bedroom, ready to start another boring day at our idiotic school.”
”(568) His reaction to this information shows the extreme conflict that is going on within the narrator’s mind. He has realised that his whole life has been lived at the whim of white men, and that any control he ever had was merely an illusion. This truth is incomparably hard for the human mind to grasp, and it plunges him into wild fight within his own mind to grasp this concept. All of this conflict goes on in the pitch black space of the coal cellar, the darkest setting in the
Suddenly, someone opened the door. No matter who it was it was scary. So scary that I flew right out of the sticky substance and the out the window. As I sat down on my kitchen counter panting and out of breathe, I started to come up with a plan to get into the house, and make it so that Bert couldn 't get in at all. Then I could capture him from outside and take him to the S.A.H.N.A. prisons.

While this subject is very upsetting to hear- proven by my tears- it will guarantee something like the Holocaust will never happen again. As my history teacher always says, history is only relevant to us when it’s personal. Seeing how much Elie was affected by spending one night in a camp has made the Holocaust even more real and personal to me. I finally see how much of a real nightmare it was, and I can only hope this will never happen again for the rest of
This caused everyone who was in the station to look in the direction of the door slamming. “Who do you think you are?” question Rachel slamming her balled up hands on his desk. “You are very close to in subornation Sargent. Stand down, one more tie and you will be sleeping in lockup.”
The Violence Virus Shaking, worrying, apprehending, I listened to the roaring voice of my father as he yelled at my mother. Violence is never the answer to solving any problem. It always worsens the situation. In my house, it’s led to total negativity; escalating an argument with someone can cause duress, and I can stop it by taking care of local savagery I can control.
Fresh Meat As I looked down the dimly lit hallway, thoughts in my mind raced, as my heart viciously paced. I would later learn that that particular hallway, leading to the cells, was called the Trail to Hell. Because prison, especially this prison, with these bitch ass guards, is hell. No way around that.
Poseidon’s influence is shown in the quote, “We are from Troy, Achaeans, blown off course by shifting gales on the Great South Sea…” (661, 249-250). These two quotes show how both of the gods used as alter egos for Odysseus have cruel sides. Athena, whom is usually known for her tactics and wisdom, believes that killing the suitors would be the right thing to do. By today's standards, what the suitors did was unacceptable, but not worthy of death. Their behaviors were unprecedented and rude, but not to the extent of death.
The real crimes are the ones where you get to know your victim, ones with malicious intent towards a certain person and no matter what you do you will stop at nothing to debase that person's life. Crimes that take planning and deceit are what will land you deep deep down into the chasms of the underworld. As Dante and Virgil descend into the eighth ring of hell, it is noticed that this ring is peculiarly large in comparison to the previous circles, “There is in hell a vast and sloping ground called Malebolge, a lost place of stone as black as the great cliff that seals it round”. (Alighieri 144) The Malebolge is, by it's Italian meaning, an evil pouch.
As a was running down the hallway I heard footsteps and I turn into a classroom that was big as two rooms put together. The room was not filled with joy it was a whole nightmare, all you could see was a light switch that was glowing at the top of of the stair case, so I went up there to turn it on and I saw peple without mask they where screming my name and i knew that was my friends they where going into a trap and it was a net at the end of the hallway. I ran after them “waspppppp” the sound of the net scared me and my friends where smart enought no to go in there and something set it off I do know what did nut i was out so i whould not get
I’ve always been fascinated by karma. Fair - sure, but sometimes creepy and dusty. Dressed with an invisible cap, It lurks in the darkest of the dark nights of forgotten ones, tormenting every single guilty and ignorant soul to death. You may think it’s madness, but I, Santiago, when the blood moon was floating in an ocean of ever seen darkness, implored the hidden forces of the night to help me to get my revenge but instead of giving me supernatural powers I was conjuring, an inhuman idea embedded my brain so strong that I could feel every cell of my brain worshiping it and standing in my enormous but hideous mansion, so hideous a raven would refuse to announce the death of the owner of this house, I promise that Lucenzo shall never breathe
Everything was meticulously placed into the proper drawer, shelf, or cubby. The only things on the bulletin board were Cat’s spelling bee medals and Science Olympiad certificates. “DO YOU KNOW WHAT TIME IT IS!!!???!!!” Cat’s voice brought Hallie back to earth. She sounded like an overly peppy cheerleader.
I’m afraid that I haven’t much time left as the rope will be my end. There is so much I wish to tell you, but I will have to make do with my remaining time. I hope to make you understand why I chose such a horrid fate. But first, I must address my betrayal of your mother. To think your mother was sick and in need of my help while I was with another women.
Monday through Friday I stayed with my grandmother and great aunt, so that I could go to school. I was in elementary school at the time. I use to listen to my uncle play different types of music on his stereo so that he could mimic the sound with the instruments he was playing. I used to sing along with him dreaming that one day I would be able to sing just like the singers on the albums my uncle would play to. As time went on, my mother met a man that she felt was a good man.
