Pat Conroy could have quit. He had every reason to give up the game of basketball and never look back, but he did not. He acted on the contrary. He pushed himself to his limits everyday at practice and he gave every last ounce of effort he had and left everything on the court. He had so much love for the game of basketball and he did not let his dad's insults faze him.
The heat was devastating and many people decided to not go outside. Jem and I, however, ignored Atticus ' warnings about the heat, and left to go to see Dill. We passed by the Radley house, no longer afraid of Boo, after all, he had saved our lives. I could still clearly remembering the events of that day, but when I brought up the topic with Jem, he would ignore me, and change the subject. “Jem?” I asked him, “Why don 't you want to talk about that day?” He gave me the stare that showed he didn 't want to answer my question, so I shut my mouth and continued walking.
Anyway, I want to inform you and Justin that if he ever needs help, email me and I will help him. He 's a good kid and make sure he stays that way." I haven 't talked to Mr.Prokes since last school year. It 's rough when you don 't have their email, Facebook, or number. It 's rough when you want to talk to someone you know and love and you can 't.
As a young minority male with two African-born parents who received zero education, acceptations were high at a young age. When I was five years old I attended PS 156 elementary school. The school had poor academic grades and eventually shut down after receiving a F. I always managed to maintain mostly As and was consistently top of my classes. I loved school and hated to see it end. When I was in fourth grade I maintained a high grade even though it was sort of a middle school atmosphere.
Not knowing what to do they called police because they’re not used to this behavior, the beginning of the quote where it says “paradise didn’t last long “ shows they’re new to the neighborhood wasn’t expecting something like this to happen. To see that Dan, the brother came back as the narrator describes solemn and scared shows how unusual this is. They weren’t these type of kids, the narrator uses these words to exaggerate how seriously and scared dan looked. This is where the journey began since the cops basically didn’t care they came to a realization that sometimes they might be on their own and if it happens once there’s a chance of it happening
Caesar was warned several times by a soothsayer to beware the Ides of March. Caesar heard the warnings, but he did not heed them or take them into account. This act shows arrogance because while Caesar did not know what was to happen on the Ides of March, he did not find it relevant to himself so he ignored it. Also, when entering the capitol Caesar is offered a petition from Artemidorus. Artemidorus’ petition would have told Caesar who every conspirator was and potentially saved his life, but he did not read it.
As I was being delayed in college because of my choices, I started using illegal drugs but I got bored of it. When the people close to my heart got curious about drugs, I took it upon myself to introduce it to them so that I can control how much they use for their first time and they wouldn't overdose. I never got addicted with any substance; may it be alcohol, cigarettes, recreational and prescription drugs. I did try to abuse it didn't work. So when my friends found out that I never get hooked on anything, they asked for my help to get over their addictions.
An example could be how the world ignored the Jewish people as they cried for help. In my opinion i believe that yes we were the bystanders in this situation. They asked us to try and help them seek refutation, but we turned our heads in the opposite direction, wanting someone else to help them out. I can learn not to turn my back when someone needs me, and try to figure out how to help, rather than hope someone else take care of it. Before when i would see someone on the street asking for money I wouldn 't give them any, only because I felt they got themselves in that situation they deserve to be where they are.
I didn’t want to trapped inside myself anymore and didn’t want to be afraid of what the world could do to me. So I just decided not to. My first year was rough, I had a lot of bullies, they didn’t like that I was trans, they scared of me, and hated. I didn’t understand it and tried it alone, but it got nowhere. By sophomore year I had changed the way I did things, I built a support system, and I defeated what was keeping me down.
Basically that he is never around anymore to begin with that if anything happens he should not even care nor get involved because it just causes more problems. He did not like that and so we argued more but then he finally got the hint each time something would happen and I would mouth off to him. I cannot have respect for a man who cuts out his kids just to impress his new girlfriend, I cannot do it. He does not realize how bad he has hurt my mother, sister and I the last ten or so
