Even the negative side effects of their actions led to long term benefits for many. The creation of monopolies led to government intervention in business on behalf of fair competition. The exploitation of workers led to regulations guaranteeing safety codes, minimum wage, abolition of child labor, and the rise of unions. While they did not intend for these things to occur, they are still byproducts of their efforts to build American industry. They set up the country to become, financially speaking, the largest beneficiary of World War I as the U.S. supplied much of the material used to fight the conflict.
When he had finally learned the man and women’s name he introduced them to each other and gave them some money to use for whatever they wanted to do for rest of the day he suggested that they go to Coney Island or go to lunch somewhere.

Mr. Johnson said that because he asked that question that he knew the man would not just leave the women there. He came home to his wife and he asked her how her day was and she explained that she was just mean to people.
Chapters 35-39 of The Shipping News, by Annie Proulx, bring the themes of family roots and change, which have been slowly building, to a satisfying point. The two themes correlate - when Quoyle faces his family roots, he is able to let go of the past and build a future for himself, changing his outlook on life and his immediate family situation. Quoyle going to visit his cousin Nolan and remarking on his seemingly sane mind marks him making peace with his family roots and his past in general. He brings Nolan a present, a framed photograph of a poodle, and offers to inquire about a nursing home in Killick-Claw for him. Quoyle is originally disgusted by his ancestry of pirates and an old madman, but his kindness toward Nolan in chapter 36
Food begets nourishment, satisfaction, and occasionally happiness; to Elie food compels worry, seeing that his father fades regardless of how much he’s given. A meager decision shows his maturity, few children his age put forth the effort to show care for their parents, much less to keep them viable. Elie’s relationship with Shlomo grows stronger through their experiences until death. The little, European boy transforms from living as Elie Wiesel to surviving as A-7713, but his relationship with his father alters from essentially the silent treatment to a genuine love.
My experience is similar to the story since in both cases, women are expected to cook food for the rest of the family. Also, in both cases, the person we relied on left the house and the rest of the family was exposed to a new situation and had to figure out a way to continue through their daily lives without the help of the person that left. After that, we gain a sense that we should not always take someone’s actions for granted and we should show more gratitude to the person who has done many things for us. In conclusion, we might not always know what we should be grateful towards, but when it comes to the people who are always there for us, we should at least let them know in one way or
This was a school of thought during American Imperialism serving mainly as an excuse to conquer other nations. White Man’s Burden said that Americans were better, smarter, and more capable than the inhabitants of less advanced countries and suggested that it was the duty of Americans to take over these countries and help them become better. In reality, when Americans tried to execute these beliefs in countries such as the Philippines, their attempts were met with dissatisfaction and rebellion. The other countries did not want to be like America, but Americans

The piece of art I am grateful for is “The Last Dinner of Jesus”. I am grateful for this piece of art because it is when our lord had his last meal before he died on the cross. He is with all of his “brothers” on a dining table having bread and wine. That is why I am grateful for this piece of art.
Sometimes it can be difficult for sons to understand the lessons that fathers teach to them, leading to a disconnect between the two. This is the case for the son and his father in David Bottoms’ “Sign for My Father, Who Stressed the Bunt.” As a child, the speaker lacks appreciation for his father, yet nevertheless they share a common love. As an adult, reminiscing on his baseball experiences with his father, the son through his retrospective point of view now appreciates his father for all his father did. This poem employs diction and varying points of view to emphasize the lack of understanding between the two characters, while symbols and figurative comparisons express their mutual love; this poem analyzes the loving, yet dysfunctional relationship
