In the article, “Shattered Lives” by Kristin Lewis, Dania faces many challenges. One challenge that she faced was that she was part of a war and had to leave all of the things she loved behind. On page 6 the author states “They faced a devastating choice: Stay and risk death, or leave everything behind…” Another piece of text evidence is “ In september, their choice became clear. They fled.” (6) Another challenge she had to face was that Dania had no education. The author clearly states on page 6 “Dania looked forward to going to school each day and took pride in the gold stars her teacher gave her for completing hr homework on time.” Some more proof for that challenge on page (7) is “by 2013, it had become too dangerous for most kids, including
After that moment I regretted everything I did and I had to go to the fire classes everyday. The fire classes were so boring and exhausting, I knew that I wasn’t supposed to be there, because I knew better then to light a blanket on fire.

I never saw Paris again, I then learned a huge lesson at the age of 8, something I would’ve never imagined happened to me . Thanks to that moment, I now will never forget to use fire properly and not to play around with fire, it is no
On my first day of kindergarten my mom took me to school. She walked me to class and stayed with me for a few minutes then she had to leave to go to work. I was okay for a little while then I started crying. I did not have my mom around and I did not have my grandmother around. My teacher let me call my mom and my mom told me “I was a big boy, I have to go to school and that everything would be ok, stop crying and that she loved me”.
Even if you said you were trying your best, they didn't accept that because accepting that will lead you to failure. They just wanted to make you better even if it is tough. Something that stood out to me while watching Remember the Titans was when Coach Boone told one of his team members to come to him for extra studying so he didn't fail school.

She comforted me telling me that I can do better next term but I ended up with the same grades as the previous term. Thus, my mother decided that I will change my school the next year so for me to transfer I had to really work hard in the last term, term 3, so I can get accepted as an 11th grader.
But as the years went by, my parents, especially my mother, wanted me to do better and get all A’s on my report card in elementary school. Near the last few weeks of grade 7, I got my final report card and I was very disappointed in myself for not getting all A’s. Comparing Jing-mei’s life and mine, the report cards that my parents receive from me are like the tests that Jing-mei receives everyday from her mother. Furthermore, the disappointment that I felt for not meeting my parents expectations is probably how Jing-mei felt when she “began to die” with the thoughts of “raised
Considering all the rebelious thoughts from this adolescent that is presented during the story, some districts of United States decided to banish it from the schools, in fear that those teenagers who read it would follow the principal character steps in life as far as they would develop same thoughts.

I had learned about the Kumeyaay and Sutter’s Mill in California. Scared to bring home failing grade, but even more scared to be viewed as the new girl who couldn’t hold her own, I remained silent.

I wanted to get up and tell my teacher that I had never heard of the subjunctive tense before and despite my quiz grade, I deserved to be in the class he so adamantly suggested that I switch out of. But I didn’t.
