By Jim’s kindness and love towards Huck, and the different characters that have impacted Huck’s life, readers can gain a deeper understanding of how racism can lead people to judge character too soon. Huck’s experiences of living with Pap impacted him in a negative way. For example, Huck’s thoughts on his relationship with his father are shown when he says, “Pap he hadn’t seen me for more than a year, and that was comfortable for me; I didn’t want to see him no more. He used to always whale me when he was sober and could get his hands on me; though I used to take to the woods most of the time when he was around” (Twain 21). Huck realizes that life will be easier away from his father because whether Pap was drunk or sober, Huck was always in a bad situation, either neglected or abused.
He said, “We are all weirdos here, that’s what makes it great.” We all share our opinions and we talk about how we want to make a difference. This year the Thursday I was at Montreat, my grandfather passed away. I did not tell anyone until I told my small group after keynote, but I think people knew something was wrong.

I told my small group about how my aunt had died last year, my uncle a few weeks ago, and then my grandfather the day before.

I will always remember the moment I first began to forgive my father. It was early one bright Sunday morning in June and I was driving to San Jose to teach an all day make-up class in Family Therapy to a group of graduate counseling students. The day before, I had hastily rented a book on tape about "letting go" to keep me company during my four-hour round-trip commute. To my surprise, the entire book was the author's poignant story of how she had chosen to forgive her father, who sounded like a carbon copy of my own dad. As I listened to the writer describe her courageous journey toward acceptance and healing, I became acutely aware of the bitterness and pain in my heart that I had kept locked away for decades.
Amir decides to be a bystander instead of standing up for his good and faithful friend because he is afraid of getting hurt. His decision to not intervene, is a selfish move that affects many. Another example of Amir's selfishness appears when Amir asks Hassan if he would eat dirt for him (Hosseini 54). Hassan being the good and loyal friend responds by saying yes, but questions why Amir would want to make him do such a cruel thing. I believe that Amir asked Hassan that to remind him of his position as a servant.
But If at times we feel like we have run out of love and/or happiness and someone comes along and offers us just a bit we reach out to snatch it up. We reach for all that we can get even if it comes at a high price. So often we begin bad relationships just because we feel we are lacking love and happiness and we want so badly for someone to share just a bit of theirs with us. As hard as it may seem at times what we really need is to accept ourselves and be happy with who we are. Then we will never need another being to make us feel that way.
Personal Freedom vs Intellectual Holocaust In Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury, Montag’s desire for personal freedom constantly conflicts with the ongoing intellectual holocaust. During this era, society discourages the opportunity to think independently because they live under the impression that “not everyone [is] born free and equal, as the constitution says, but made equal” (Bradbury 146) Many technological advancements evolve to occupy everyone and society enforces many rules to ensure that everyone lives equally. However, Montag meets Clarisse, who exposes him to her extroverted lifestyle and encouraged him to question his lifestyle. He soon realizes that he is not happy and the desire for a new life advances him to seek both personal and intellectual freedom. As a result of the desire for uniformity, society removes the majority of the freedom that characters can have.
