Prometheus writes that he finally recognizes ‘why the best in me has been my sins and my transgressions; and why I had never felt guilt in my sins” in the concluding chapter of Anthem (Rand, 98). Prometheus comes to understand that the reason he has felt no regret for his actions, is because they are what makes him an individual. This meaning that throughout his life he has been degraded because of how he would wonder and constantly ask questions, but this has made him a person with views and genuine curiosity on how the world works. These are all characteristics of a single person because not all people have the same views on everything. Surprisingly, in Prometheus’ society no one is considered an individual and
The basketball hoops are a little rusty and old, but the hoops are still adequate to play and shoot into. It was a long day of hard work at school, but Konnor got through it! “RING!” the school bell went off, which alarmed Konnor and he got up from his seat and dashed out the door and onto the buses. Konnor is the fifth stop on the bus, but the ride only takes around ten minutes. The bus trekked all the way to his house, then he got off and ran inside,
I can’t even name the characteristics, advice, and knowledge about leadership I learned from him. In my school, I was not a brilliant student, but he always admired me even when I got low marks. He always believed in me and my competencies and taught me that a good person should be a good leader who should work hard distinguish himself from the society and always work for the peace and betterment of the society. He is a great leader to me because he had certain traits and characteristics which I never found in anyone else in my life. Like he was very humble and gentle even the worst scenarios of his life, I never saw him in an aggressive mood, and he always had a smile on his face.
Our society has become immune to being better than those who don’t have what we have be started to ignore or forget about the less fortunate. A personal example I experienced was when I turned 16, I was excited to drive to school, I wouldn’t have to ride the bus for an hour every morning anymore, but when I found out that I might have to ride the bus awhile because we couldn’t find a car for me. I was devastated because I would have to ride the bus to school when people in other countries have to walk miles on miles just to get an
My friends began to talk to me little by little, everyday. I didn’t know that I loved showing off my intelligence, I loved the joy of knowing so much of what my friends didn’t know. Not just being smarter than them, but helping them with spelling. A week passed and I thought about my discussion and at that moment in time I realized that I was smart, and there was nothing I could do about it. At recess I stopped my friends, before stepping onto the jungle gym and they all just ran away.
Of course I wanted to use the tools all by myself since I was a third grader, but like always, my mom told me I had to be helped with the tools and I couldn’t use the saw because I was too young. So we got the shape of the car done and we went over the drill press to drill the holes where the axis’ will go and I got to use the
Childhood is the most innocent phase. Most children remember when they were ten years old. They remember on their first day of fourth grade, their mom and dad would not let them leave on the school bus until their chubby little baby face filled the tape of a wind up camera. When it was time to finally be able to leave, they caught their parents following the bus in a familiar vehicle to the school and as they pulled in they thought they had escaped them. Startlingly, they found them standing at the classroom door because mom needed a hug.
Things used to be different. I used to go to school, laugh uncontrollably at lunch with all of my goofy friends and hoped that I would have time to spend with my boyfriend during the weekend. I used a name that my mom and dad gave me. The only thing I had to worry about was getting good grades… but now I worry for my family. I worry about how we can survive for another week.
At home it’s all about Spanglish growing up Mexican your first language was Spanish and starting school that’s where I and my sister learn English at home we always spoke Spanglish without even knowing my parents wouldn’t allow my sister and I to speak English but as we got older and are first language was beginning to be English we would say “orale pues” meaning ok but still spoke little Spanish so we mix languages without even thinking about it. When I arrive at home from work I always greet my son with “Hola bebe how are you” which I don’t even think when I do that. In an article Fount and Hella(1952) they said “speech is variety” meaning speech can be variable in all occasions depending the place and time. It’s amusing how we don’t
Everyone stared at his chromebook in awe, as if it was a winning lottery ticket. The student glanced around and shuffled off to his next class. “Later that day,” a suspect said, “I asked if the chromebook was damaged. He just shook his head and said, ‘It’s perfectly fine.’” Thankfully, with lots of luck, his chromebook was not damaged in the accident. Although, more suspects say they heard his touch screen wasn’t working.
