The Great Fire of 1910 was very destructive in its nature. A drought and dry spring made the ground exhausted with dehydration. In Sherry Devlin’s article she states “Wallace townspeople blew up dynamite in hopes that the man made thunder would bring rain”. Tons of small fires were started from lighting, people, and railroads. () Rangers scooted along trains and put out fires.
“Schaffer’s first signal went out at 9:30. Several minutes later, Schaffer realized his mistake and ordered Box 319 struck. This was still seven blocks away from the O’Learys’, but close enough that firefighters could see the flames and alter their course.” Then when the bell rang at City Hall, it only rang once which meant that the fire wasn’t a really big fire and didn’t need much help when it really needed much all the help they can get. As you can see the firefighters were dealing with a lot at the
“The original paraphernalia for the lottery had been lost long ago, and the black box now resting on the stool had been put into use even before Old Man Warner, the oldest man in town, was born” (93). Old Man Warner had been in the lottery for 77 years, and the black box had been used for the lottery longer than that. This proves that the lottery was a long tradition, and the village is not going to stop doing that, even though they lose one person every year. The reason the lottery is still going on in this village is because of the tradition of it. “‘Some places have already quit lotteries,’ Mrs. Adams said.
It inspired people to move on from the war and develop our country. His speech inspired people of all genders and races to forgive and forget. Unfortunately, Lincoln never actually got to see the full effects of his speech because he was assassinated a little over a month after giving this speech. Therefore, Lincolns Inaugural address was definitely affective in almost every way. Lincolns Second Inaugural address was just over 700 words long and only took 6 minutes to deliver.
By mid-June, the weary Spaniards made it to Apalachen but instead of gold, they discovered large stores of corn. The Native Americans constantly attacked them, killing few and wounding many more. The residents told the Spaniards to continue on to Aute, which was rich with gold, so they pushed on. Finally, after hiking for days, the group reached Aute only to find it entirely burned to the ground. With the constant attacks and no rest, the group decided to try and and sail to Pánuco instead of foraging on.
In Anthem the society did not have any opinion on anything or how their life would go. In the book the author explains how they couldn’t decide for themselves, “This is the only thing that moved, for the lips of the oldest did not move as they said: Street Sweeper.”(26) as portrayed in the book, the people did not decide where they wanted to be sent to work for the rest of their lives. The man in the book was the smartest person in his school and he still got street sweeper, while it took 50 years for the scholars to fully discover a candle. The people couldn’t even choose when they went to bed, “In the home of the students we arose when the big bell rang in the tower and we went to our beds when it rang again.”(21) these reasons give a colossal
Somewhere during fleeing your home in an hour and driving through flood waters high enough to submerge more than half of an SUV, you realize that the only thing you truly need is your life. As prayers flew off the lips of my siblings and I, I wasn’t thinking about my house or the new shoes I had just bought a week ago. I was thinking that I just wanted my family to escape with our lives. When the flood hit, Like Hulga in Good Country People by Flannery O’Connor, I felt like I had gotten a leg taken out from right under me. I had always considered myself to be extremely appreciative for what I have.
Along twenty-three-hour fight lay ahead of them, as they realize it was time to say good-bye to their native family and home as tears rolled down their eyes. The Moua family has never thought of leaving family members behind, moving to a different country, different school, or learning a different communication language. First, the Moua family, lived a normal life as the grandmother and the mother would wake up at five every morning and cook for the family and feed corn for the chicken. The father would design xauv (necklace), the grandfather would make kawm, (basket). The children would run around chasing each other bringing joy to the parents.
I am the daughter of two hard working, conservative parents. At my home in tiny, rural Warrenton, play came only after all my chores had been completed. Constantly unloading and stacking the endless piles of firewood wasn’t all that enjoyable, yet at every complaint I made, my dad proposed a convincing reason that we’d need the bundle. I endured the yardwork by imagining I was a lost princess, or a hero saving the world. Imagination and adventure were my buddies growing up, and I will proudly carry them to my grave.
Let me start with this, so my family starts looking for houses and I say “nooo” because I didn’t want to move for the second time. the next day we find a house but the landlord said “the house run down so you have to fix the house”. After 7 weeks later we found a house where I used to live. So we got that house and I thought it was going to be big but it was two rooms like the house I move away from but in the back, there was one more room. So I moved all my stuff in the room I checked the back yard there were fences so I was happy so my dogs cannot escape.
