Why are some of our young men resorting to violence in the form of mass shootings? Over the years many theories have been developed to attempt to explain why mass shootings continue to occur in our country. In this essay, I will focus on and attempt to uncover how these theories may help us to understand why the Sandy Hook Elementary School Shootings (SHES) occurred.
Yes, I believe Ms. Fortin was a victim of union animus because her employer were not big supporter of unions. Few months prior to her dismissal, Ms. Fortin appeared on a union flyer; consequently, the relationship between Ms. Fortin and her employer were not the same. In addition, Ms. Fortin attended a hearing concerning unions representing her workplace. When she returned to work that day, her boss called her into the office and gave her a disciplinary warning. Furthermore, two days later Ms. Fortin received four additional disciplinary actions. Her supervisor claimed that customers said they received poor customer service from Ms. Fortin. In 1994, the company decided to restructured its company finance and a new manager took over Ms. Fortin’s department. Staff reduction was part of the change; consequently, Ms. Fortin was one of the first employee to get laid off. Unfortunately, when the new supervisor decided to laid off Ms. Fortin, she had no prior knowledge of Ms. Fortin’s union activity. For this reason, the court should uphold the supervisor decision. Her supervisor allegedly laid her off because of her poor performance evaluation and disciplinary actions that Ms. Fortin had in her file.
Marjorie Lee Browne was a well-known mathematician and educator who was only the third African-American woman to earn her Ph.D. in mathematics. She was born in Memphis, Tennessee on September 9, 191 to Mary Taylor Lee and Lawrence Johnson Lee. Browne’s mother died when she was only two, so she was raised by her father, a railway postal clerk, and her stepmother, Lottie Lee, who was a school teacher. Her stepmother’s encouragement to stay focused on her studies and her father’s love of mathematics both influenced Browne during her time in school.
S. E. Hinton’s The Outsiders is a novel that follows a group of boys growing up in the 1960s who have to face prejudice and stereotypes on a daily basis. The author uses multiple examples of prejudice in the novel to demonstrate the destructive nature of prejudice on the characters in the story, such as fights between characters, friendships being torn apart, and people feeling ashamed of who they are and which social class they belong in. The first examples of prejudice shown in the novel are fights and hate between the two social classes.

This essay focuses upon what Mark gains from the class; however inside out writers was designed for the juvenile inmates. I believe Mark gains a lot from the inside out writing class; mark gets to know each student, understands each student, and becomes really good friends with them.

Melinda Sordino started ninth grade just as afraid and alone as I did. At an End-of-the-Summer party, Melinda was raped by a football player from Merryweather, her new high school. She immediately called the cops to report the crime, however the kneejerk reaction of the underage drinkers occupying the houseparty silenced her and chased her away. Consequently, Melinda’s best friends from middle school abandoned her; no one wanted to be associated with the squealer. Her parents were distant and never took the time to understand the sudden change in Melinda’s demeanor. She fought hard to keep the darkness in: bloodying her lips with her teeth and nails to stay quiet. In the midst of Melinda’s battle to come to terms with her assault, she found
The case study describes about the tragic incident of Dorothy J.Drury, who died from injuries sustained in a fall while living at an Assisted Living Concepts, Inc.

Drury’s mother suffered from dementia, chronic confusion, and memory impairment. The Residency Agreement included an arbitration provision.

An Australian writer Kate McCaffrey wrote novel Destroying Avalon in 2006. It highlights how “cyberbullying” affects innocent children in different surroundings with their own distinct and special characteristic and feature. It realistically depicts the heartbreaking consequences of school violence, committing a suicide, from the perspective of another victim. I will write an article in the perspective of the school counselor, who is in charge of the event of a child dying, because he or she is expert in controlling school brutality, so she or he can provide adequate advice to students and it can save the students from school harassment. The article is written after the death of Marshall to encourage the victims to voice out and bail out of the school atrocity with supports from

Everyday, millions of innocent kids are bullied around their school. They are pushed around, physically abused, and can’t do anything about it. The bystanders around them decide not to help either. The daily routine is the same: Get to school quickly and get out even faster, to avoid those kids. The thing is, that they don’t tell anyone, or get help. This is what it was like for elementary student, Chayzée Smith, except worse.
Mrs. Brown, a patient with ALS (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis) should have the option to end her life prematurely or to stay alive and suffer tremendously from a disease that is bound to kill her. Based on the readings and lecture in class, it has become apparent to me that choosing to die by withdrawing medication and choosing to die by taking medication follow very similar reasoning. On the paper Story of Teresa & Terrence - The Established Medical/Legal View, a parallel description of the reasoning that is followed for each case is shown, making clear the logical differences of each patient. In my opinion, the differences in the two cases of Teresa and Terrence are trivial at best. Both patients are choosing to die and taking deliberate measures to do so by changing the routine(s) of their treatment. If the means to die by stopping medication are permissible, the means to die by taking medication ought to be permissible.
One of the students explains to Miss Caroline that an Ewell’s “‘Here the first day. You’re supposed to mark ‘em absent or the rest of the year…’ ‘But what about their parents?’ asked Miss Caroline, in genuine concern. ‘Ain’t got no mother,’ was the answer, ‘and their paw’s right contentious’” (27). This shows how Mr. Ewell has no care whatsoever of what becomes of his children’s future, he is setting them on the path for failure. Family bonds impact them in a bad way, Mr. Ewell does not care for the children or have them get an education for a better life. The children do not interact with the world in the same way others do because their father changed how they viewed others. When Tom Robinson, who was accused of raping Mayella Ewell, testified of the events, he explained that she had forced him to stay and that “she says she never kissed a grown man before an’ she might as well kiss a nigger. She says what her papa do to her don't count” (194). The Ewell’s family bond is broken due to how the father interacts with his eldest daughter. This is not good for a family, it is destructive to the family and that is
Filmmaker Lee Hirsch, in his documentary Bully, claims that bullying needs to stop and that can only be done by the many and not the few. Hirsch’s purpose is to persuade people to fight back against bullying. Bully is directed in a somber and frustrating tone, which creates a depressed mood in the viewer. Lee Hirsch uses pathos as an effective tool in his documentary because the first-hand accounts of victims and their parents further encourages his audience to act on the fight against bullying.
In life, we are not guaranteed a long life or even a pain free life. The author talks about a very emotional decision that a young couple must make concerning their critically ill daughter and their journey of choosing to do everything possible to save her life but regrettable not being with her when she died. As the family and the medical team reflect on the life of Charlotte, the young little girl that died, many questions were asked. Did the medical team accurately assess the situation? Did they provide immediate lifesaving treatment? Should they have let Charlotte die peacefully? These and many more questions are asked when faced with life and death
