For example, “her (Marys) first instinct was not to believe any of it. She thought that she had perhaps imagined the whole thing. Perhaps, if she acted as though she had not heard him, she would find out none of it had every happened.” This shows that the narrator knows how Mary feels however throughout the story Marys feelings and thoughts are the only characters known to the narrator. Part B: Refugees are seeking safety worldwide due to unsafe countries. After reading these stories about refugees I have become much more aware of the critical conditions they have to live with.
Should I of been scared? Yes, for ‘Only a fool is not scared’- Madeleine L'Engle (author of ‘A Wrinkle in Time’). Someone with no fears isn’t human. As humans, we face our fears midst the battle against them. They bully me out of something I was afraid to do for my safety.
Either, I let their success discourage me or I let it empower me. I sadly chose the wrong decision. It’s so easy to become the bad guy within your own story. Rather it was getting into fights or— breaking my mother’s heart, I was willing to become what I needed too to survive without school. My mother soon kicked me out because she didn’t condone pity parties.
Inaddition, to helping me deal with change, making new friends, moving developed who I am.As aresult, moving made me a better person from finding who I really am. When I was in Floyd, being myself never happened. Believing and trying to be what others wanted me to be. Moving here has given me never-ending opportunities to
Premila added,“So I don't think we should go back to that school”(Rau,38). The readers can get a understanding of how Premila was treated proving their culture was not as “great” as the British culture. Rau forces readers to recognize that in their society no matter what the problem is insular people make it worse. Also, the mother and Premila thought Santha didn't know what was going on but she did by saying,“I understood it perfectly and i remember it very clearly. But I put It happily away because it all had happened to a girl named Cynthia, and I never was really particularly interested in her” (Rau,42).
The woman stayed silent. "I commanded my men to steer the ship into her direction, until I heard a strong feminine voice ringing through the air, “No, Odysseus my beloved husband which I have longed for. Take my apologies for my disrespectful silence. I surely didn’t believe it was you after all these years but when I heard your rage, I sensed at once it was truly you. I never heard that rage before since you scolded me for not wanting you to go off too Troy.
“Mummy thinks she is too stupid to waste words over, Margot too unimportant, Pim too ugly(literally and figuratively), and I, after long observation- for I was never prejudice from the start- have come to the conclusion that she is all three and a lot more!” In this quote, Anne even admits that as she was not born with prejudice, but her family’s behavior has influenced her to be infected with the “disease”. Nonetheless, will the disease of prejudice ever be cured? Why has it continues to stay so prevailing? I think this all goes back to the nature over nurture debate. Since people maintain influencing prejudice with unfair actions and words, children keep being affected with this and acting this way, which extends the cycle.
This troubled me because I couldn’t wrap my head around the fact that living in the same city or village with a person or people of a different religion was a sin because in my opinion it is more immoral to exile someone from their home because of a different belief rather than living with them. This novel changed the way I perceive other religions, to explain, before this reading my thinking towards other religions was that my religion is the correct one and all the others are wrong, but I realize that serves no good to me and to other people if we all believe in
What Benny is saying in other words, is that she is against believing in god and is unhappy how god is credited for all of man's achievements. Benny’s family values were also little to nonexistent. As a result Benny did not carry any sentimental emotions when it came to her family. Instead Benny felt more rage towards her family as she said to Mama about Walter “ He’s no brother of mine” (145). Furthermore Benny goes on to say “There is nothing else to love” when Mama says “I taught you to love” Walter (145).
Hassan hadn’t done anything to earn Baba’s affections; he’d just been born with that stupid harelip” (Hosseini 46). When Amir says, “I wish I too had some kind of scar that would beget baba’s sympathy”, we can infer that because of Hassan’s harelip, Amir believes that's the only reason why Baba treats Hassan with such care. Because Baba and Amir's relationship isn’t as stable as Baba and Hassan's, Amir shows a bit of jealousy. After Amir says, “It wasn’t fair. Hassan hadn’t done anything to earn Baba's affection”, we can infer that Amir is frustrated that Baba cherishes Hassan and questions himself, what did Hassan ever do?
I cannot sleep, I cannot eat; I am anxious all of the time. For some inexplicable reason I feel as if I am unsafe. Torture is this feeling; worse, this torture has not plan for peace in my future. AND YOU! You clearly don’t understand what it means to be dead.
I tried so hard to keep my identity a secret, but the webs of lies and the decent caught up to me. So, I figured why not tell them now before people really start thinking that I was untrustworthy. Well I told my friends first and my family second. The talk felt like it took for hours as I felt my throat burn and my voice started to crook. The response that I was thinking in my head didn’t really come true.
!’’ cried my friend, ‘’We were so excited about this!’’ ‘’I know I said, ‘’but you’ve changed my mind.’’ ‘’Look,’’ the mom said, we are turning around, because your friend does not agree with you.’’ ‘’Lame.’’ my friend grumbled. But I knew, even though he would be furious at me, I had made the right decision. After successfully making it to my house again, I sat down and though awile of everything that happened. As concerned as I was with whole situation, I concluded my thoughts, that mazes were without a shadow of a doubt, not my
“You are a coward” that’s what people called me. There was a lack of comprehension about me being the only living soul. I laboured all the time, with an intention of succoring my family which I never managed to accomplish properly. Every time I searched for money in my pockets, the holes in it swallowed my fingertips. Every day I wandered on the road to find a job, Wherever I went “YOU ARE THIS COUNTRY’S PROTECTOR”.
They knew the war to be a misfortune, whereas those who were better off, and should have been able to see more clearly what the consequences would be, were beside themselves with joy. Katczinsky said that was a result of their upbringing. It made them stupid. And what Kat said, he had thought about" (Remarque, 11). When the soldiers joined the war, they had no clue it was going to that life changing.
