It also marks the death of dignity, sanity, and innocence. Norman Bowker, one of the young soldiers, hung himself in the YMCA locker room of his hometown because he struggled to find meaning in his life after the war. Before he performs this act however, he writes a letter to O’Brien explaining his internal struggles when he returns home: “ a guy who feels like he got zapped over in that shithole. A guy who can’t get his get his act together and just drives around town all day and can’t think of any damn place to go and doesn’t know how to get there anyway. This guy wants to talk about it, but he can’t….” Bowker feels that he has lost a sense of purpose because of the war; he no longer has drive or ambition and this can be contributed to the horrific images and situations he experienced during the war.
Unfortunately, he was unable to see his family due to rebels attacking. His mental state was heavily damaged at that point. Waiting years to see your family again just to see them killed is truly depressing. When Ishmael started to train as a boy soldier, he soon became determined to avenge his family. This is shown when the lieutenant was brainwashing Ishmael, telling them to kill the one that killed their family.
It is evident that if Martin Luther King Jr. was still alive today, he would teach people to stop segregation that is still continued today by being kind, standing up in a nonviolent manner, and by not being judgemental. To begin, Martin Luther King Jr. wanted to put a stop to segregation during his lifetime. If he was still alive today, MLK would probably continue to teach others about segregation and how it should be stopped. In the text, “Worsening, unchecked segregation in K-12 public schools” it states, “Segregation in public K-12 schools isn 't getting better; it 's getting worse, and getting worse quickly," he said. More than 20 million students of color now attend high-poverty, minority schools.” This portrays the fact that segregation is still a problem that is continued
However, technology can be misused, and can be very painful for those, children, parents and teachers, who are targets of cyberbullying. Adults need to help children and young people prepare for the hazards while promoting the many learning and social opportunities available. The children now are the next generation if they are kind to one another and know how to use technology properly then we can definitely go far places. After all cyberbullying is a criminal offense that jeopardizes the safety of Internet users. It is a rapidly growing concern among parents that needs to be terminated before it gets out of hand.
But one crucial information that I fail to acknowledge was the fact that once the Jenga tower collapses, you could always rebuild and start again. Being the goal driven kid that I was, I have always viewed obstacles as something that I needed to accomplish in order to avoid failure. But sooner did I know that life doesn’t always go as planned. People like who I was, so focused and determined on succeeding, forgetting the fact that success also comes with failure. So vulnerable to the thought of failing that they derive themselves into self-placed miseries.
I agree because you must live your life to the fullest meanwhile you can. When you are gone you won't be able to enjoy your life like you did when you were alive. What I think that steve jobs is trying to tell us is that if we make mistakes each day those are our new paths to being more successful in our life. The quote that Steve jobs,says in his speech is “Sometimes life is going to hit you in the head with a brick. Don't lose faith”.What this quote means to me is every mistake and obstacles we make isn't wrong it's giving us hints that we are close to being perfect to what we are trying to achieve.
I feel like this is the most important problem and it needs to be fixed by having counselors or any adult going in which every single student and asking how they are doing and if anything is wrong. Not having the confidence to stick up for yourself is probably what makes the bully keep "attacking" you. They know that you are too scared, so they don 't have to be worried about getting in trouble, but if you were someone who was courageous enough to tell someone and get help then the bullying incident may stop. People won 't start calling you names, or anything, and even if they do, it doesn 't matter what people around you say because they may not know that you have been having a hard time lately or they just want to make you feel bad. If you are getting bullied and its getting to the point where you have to tell someone about it, then you 'd be happy you did because you never know what could of happened if you hadn 't.
Some kids get so overwhelmed with the torture that they end up taking their own life. Thinking that it is the only way to make it all end. They need to know that there are other options out there. We need to teach teens that what they say online, can hurt people. The people on the other end of the screen laughs, cries, and feels all the same emotions that we do.
But it is not the victim’s fault. Key word; VICTIM. Bullying is indeed a person’s own choice, and often has some connection with some type of deep rooted personal issue of theirs. There are tons of other possibilities as to why a student may have to deal with being bullied, and now this issue has become so big that it is taking many many lives from this Earth. Bullying needs to be prevented and begin to get better starting now.
With children and teenagers so channeled in to the internet, the less fortunate bunch have a hard time escaping their bullies due to the pressure of being active on social media. Hartwell-Walker has stated that it's difficult to avoid rumors online because every little thing said on social media spreads fast: If Bully A said a
