In the poem, “Making Sarah Cry”, the author shows us that Sarah went from not having the courage to the end actually showing courage. At the beginning of the poem Sarah doesn’t show courage and lets the bullies tease her. As an example, “The purpose of their game Of teasing Sarah, who made them laugh As her own tears felt like rain.” This showed she didn 't have courage because the bullies will make fun of her and laugh at her and make her cry. They made her feel as she was nothing but a joke. This showed she never had courage because she never had the guts to stand up for herself and say something.
The character's actions are different in both passages. In “Making Sarah Cry” Sarah stands up for the boy who bullied her, but in “The Watsons Go To Birmingham” They don’t stand up to the waitress or anyone that stands for segregation. The theme in the poem “Making Sarah Cry” is Being Different. For example, the poem states,“Sarah was unlike the rest; She was slow and not as smart, And it would seem to all his friends She was born without a heart.” Sarah is treated unkindly because of the way she
In the text, it states “Then Sugar surprises me by sayin, ‘You know, Miss Moore, I don't think all of us here put together eat in a year what that sailboat costs.’ And Miss Moore lights up like somebody goosed her. ‘And?’ she say, urging Sugar on. Only I'm standin on her foot so she don't continue.” This shows that when Sugar has an intelligent thought, Sylvia wants to stop her. Sylvia does not like when Sugar seems smarter than her in front of Miss Moore, so she does not let Sugar go any further. Sylvia and Suger are opposites of each other because while Suger wants to share what she learned, Sylvia wants to keep that knowledge to herself.
Another time when Scout felt empathy was when her and Jem went to Mrs. Dubose’s house to read to her. “In the corner of the room was a brass bed, and in the bed was Mrs. Dubose. I wondered if Jems activities had put her there and for a moment I felt sorry for her.” The reason why Jem and Scout were at Mrs. Dubose’s house, was because Jem and Scout were walking by her house when Dubose started yelling at the kids saying that Atticus is not any better than the “niggers and trash he works for.” Jem lost his temper and takes Scouts baton he bought for her and snaps it in half. Jem destroys all of
The poem “Making Sarah Cry” and the play “The Watsons go to Birmingham” have the similar theme of being different. In “Making Sarah Cry” Sarah is different from the other kids on the playground. In “The Watsons go to Birmingham” the Watson family has a different skin color so they are separated from whites to do everyday tasks. The texts, both share a similar theme, but have different qualities. For example, in “Making Sarah Cry” only two people are excluded from playing with kids because of their differences.
She 's a major slut. I don 't know from experience or anything.” (The Craft, 1996) and once Nancy gets wind of this encounter, she reaches out to Sarah and begins to include her in the activities of the coven. Why? Nancy may have felt sorry for Sarah, as her impressionability as the new girl was beginning to drag her down a slut-shaming rabbit hole (Which Sarah still falls down regardless), but more a more likely cause for Nancy’s sudden change of attitude was because she was jealous of Sarah getting the attention of Chris, stating that “He comes on to anything with tits, Sarah” (The Craft, 1996). This idea is reinforced later on in the movie when Nancy taunts Sarah about allegedly having sex with Chris, and once Nancy hears that Chris nearly raped Sarah, she loses it.
When Susan goes to court, she makes a statement that all women should be allowed to vote because they are the same as men. While both of these stories share a common theme of courage, the social implication of the stories is quite different. In Making Sarah Cry, Sarah only sticks up for herself and the boy. In Susan B Anthony Dares To Vote, she sticks up for all women around the United States, protesting that they should have equal rights as men. In the beginning, the boy bullies Sarah for being
When the woman is upset and crying, the narrator who is only seven years old, and is her cousin, comforts her and acts as the adult in the situation. The narrator tells her not to cry and if she doesn’t stop crying she will be too tired tomorrow and they won’t be able to go cut a tree. In a normal situation, the roles of these two characters would be switched. The adult would be comforting and telling the child
“And all of a sudden I'm crying in front of everybody. I wish I was invisible but I'm not.” (Cisneros, 3) said Rachel when she couldn’t do something but wore the sweater that smelled like cheese while the teacher was blaming her for lying. Similarly, at the time when the prostitute and Maurice jump into Holden’s room and took the extra money from him; he wasn’t able to stop them, therefore started to cry: “All of a sudden I started to cry.” (Salinger 56). Crying in inappropriate places makes them feel weak and defenceless, which worsens their traumas and leads to turn in upon
