Saving someone other than yourself in a terrible situation is not something everyone thinks about doing, but in this case Stefania Podgorska not only saved herself but 13 others, and they all lived. Podgorska didn’t plan to save all those people it was more a spur of the moment thing, and not only did she help them by getting them food she saved every last one of them; and they all lived to see more days. In life, good deeds go unnoticed, the courage and unselfishness of her mind at that time should not be something someone just forgets about it’s a wonderful thing she did and everyone should know about her. By examining Podgorska and her moral courage it is clear that she deserves all the attention given, and or all the respect others show.
The story “Pencil Crayons” by Robert Currie, is about Josh who live with his parents in a farm far away from the town. One day, the family came to town for a second time after fall. “Now that winter was on the way out, he knew things were getting better.” Josh’s feeling towards everything around him was good and even better based on this quote. When they arrived to town, they met Josh’s teacher who recommend him to join art club. The boy’s father does not like the teacher, and he basically does not want his son to join any activity in the school so he strongly refused the teacher’s advice. Later that night, Josh’s father asked his mother what she bought from town. She told Josh’s father that she bought Josh some crayons and Josh’s father got

William returned to the bedroom and opened his gym bag. He pulled out a clean t-shirt and pair of sweatpants, and continued digging through the gym bag. “Oh shit,” William whispered when he realized that he forgot to pack an extra pair of underwear. Putting on the day’s boxer briefs after a sweaty workout would be disgusting. He slid into the sweatpants without underwear. His erection popped obscenely under the sweatpants; there was no way he could stand in front of Mary with the conspicuous bulge. He sat on the edge of the bed and willed himself flaccid. After an uncomfortable and partially successful mental effort, he regained enough composure to present himself to Mary without embarrassment, and walked downstairs.

Salva had to run away from his village and he was separated from his immediate family. During Salva's journey he met his uncle. He also made a friend, Mariel. Tragically, a short time after Salva met him, Mariel got eaten by a lion. Salva’s luck just kept getting worse. His uncle was shot right in front of Salva’s eyes. After the death of Salva’s uncle, the men that Salva was traveling with started acting mean to Salva because they had looked up to his uncle, but now that his uncle was dead the men thought that Salva would just slow the group down. Finally, after a lot of walking, Salva made it to the Itang refugee camp, only to be chased out by an army six years later. The army brought everyone to a river and started shooting. Luckily, a boy grabbed Salva’s neck, which brought Salva under the water. If this boy wouldn’t have done this the bullet that hit the boy would have instead hit Salva and Salva would have died. Salva traveled with a group of boys to another refugee camp called Kakuma. Salva hated Kakuma. It was in the middle of a desert, there were fences of barbed wire enclosing the camp and people would often sneak into the camp and steal from the refugees. Since Salva hated this camp so much he decided, after two years, to go to another camp called Ifo. There, Salva made another friend named Michael who taught Salva English and, also, how to play
I have always been a follower, whether it be because I was afraid of screwing up and everyone blaming me, or just not wanting the responsibility; I do not know. That changed, however, when I joined my school’s theatre program as a set painter. I began there as a follower, too. Suddenly, for the second winter show, there were no leaders available for paint crew, so I became one. That was my first taste of leadership.
I belong in Humboldt Park. I‘ve lived in this neighborhood since I was ten years old. In the time I’ve lived here I’ve seen the community transform. Your classmates were your neighbors, and every day without fail I could spot a friend on my walk to school. During the warmer parts of the year, the elotera would stand outside the gates of the school and after the bell rang became swarmed with students ready for an afterschool snack. The most popular snack was always an icee, and as I sat around my friends they would teach me how to say it in Spanish. Raspado- and I with my imperfect accent would never say it correctly, but it made no difference, to my friends and I, I was apart of them now. Most may think in order to fit perfectly within a community
The killings in the novella “Of Mice and Men,” show that murder and death will come back to haunt people. The first killing is when Carlson kills Candy’s dog. He says that the dog is just suffering and it is also really smelly. This is why Carlson made the decision to shoot Candy’s dog, even though Candy doesn’t want Carlson to shoot his dog. The second killing was when Lennie killed his puppy. This killing ties into the next killing when Lennie kills Curley’s wife because Curley’s wife finds Lennie in the barn and she starts talking to him, when she notices that Lennie is trying to hide something she asks, “ “What you got covered up there?" Then all of Lennie's woe came back on him. "Jus' my pup," he said sadly. "Jus' my little pup." And
The first thing I wake up to was the stench. “Hey, move along! Do not slack behind.” Someone yelled in the front of the line. We are moving through the muck in Song Tra Bong. Kiowa has gone missing. I apparently has become one of the soldiers under First Lieutenant Jimmy Cross.
As a freshman, Kobi took on the challenge of high school in the way a small child takes on a chocolate bar, very enthusiastically. “I was really really excited to get to know everybody,” Kobi said with a smile. Kobi came to the Casco Bay community knowing only one other person. To some people this may have been daunting, but to a cheerful, buoyant freshman, it drove Kobi’s persistence to become friends with everyone. During Freshman Quest, Kobi was so focused on socializing with his peers that he could not focus on bonding and making connections with his crew. “There were so many social horizons to strive for I felt like I would fall behind,” he said, when comparing Freshman Quest to Senior Quest. This mindset put a damper on his experiences at Cow Island. Sitting next to Kobi, I could tell he had matured from that
