However, Tim incorporated a variety of thoughtful analysis about soldier's self-being, their fictional position, and drives the reader to process Tim's philosophy: the blinding light of fiction and fact. The theory of what actually happened and what supposedly happened intervenes with Tim's thought of "A true war story is never moral. " Tim's proposal in "How to Tell a True War Story," develops readers to examine simple text and pose questions in order to know the truth. The author admits into constructing fictional stories and characters by acknowledging how he realized "Tim is trying to save Timmy's life with a story," (pg. 233) and the copyright page stating, "This is a work of fiction.

Trump and some school students. In the fight, I hope for everyone to find what side to pick, if any, but as a student, I urge you to allow proper protection in our schools even guns need be.

The topic of gun control is becoming a bigger problem everyday in this world, and some people say we should take away all the guns and then we will be safe.

In the article “On the Punishment of Teen Killers” Jennifer Jenkins argues on the behalf of victims’ families. She claims that juvenile crime is social issue as American culture promotes violence in youth, “we in America have to own this problem, with weapons so easily available to our youth, and the violence-loving culture in which we bring them in” (par. 5). Although, Jenkins claims that teenagers should be given life without parole, this quote directly challenges her argument. Jenkins explicitly states that “America has to own this problem”. She then lists reasons for juvenile criminals to be a problem particular to America.

In Molly Ivins publication of “Get a Knife, Get a Dog but Get Rid of Guns”, she brings up an interesting argument from the well-known thriller titled Jurassic Park. In this movie one of the main characters makes a statement that power without discipline, is making society into a wreckage. From what I can infer individuals who are power-driven or do not fully understand discipline are at danger, not only to themselves, but people people that they have authority over; at times with little to no regard for their well being.
