The most interesting thing was that when Ron was a child, he saw that the society welcomed their veterans with great respect and love. On the other hand, when he returned to his hometown, people were not happy and they didn’t give love and respect what he supposed to get. The conflict that moved me was that when he returned home his mother and siblings didn’t appreciate him on his hard work, even he got paralyzed and his brother embarrassed him by saying what happened to your legs. I believe that Ron’s father and his childhood friend played important roles because they motivated him in his hard time. The role that I didn’t care was his girlfriend because she became a rich and professional person.
In Particular, I began to notice that I am getting old enough to understand that I am all I got to look up to and I don’t want to set a bad image for myself. Also, my decisions are what I make them to be, no one can choose my actions for me, so I have to choose them wisely. Admittedly, I got back into the church and also going back and finish school to better myself and my education.

Now I am looking forward to furthering my education after high school and taking care of my family the way I always wanted.
Being a 6-year-old I was more concerned about when my dad came home and the punishment that I would receive. To my surprise I did not receive any punishment but just a stern talking to and a word of advice to think over the possibilities of your actions before you do them. What I learned from this experience is that something done without thinking can have major consequences. I am reminded everyday about what I did because I can still see the scar on her chin and every time I am reminded about how quickly something can be done and it can become permanent. I have a better understanding now that even something small can have big ramifications on someone
He gradually fell in favor with his country and received many blows to his character, until finally; Arnold forsook his country, his cause, and his people. While he hoped that his actions would be admired and that people would see him as a hero, he did not anticipate the tragedy which encompassed his entire life. His professional life never recovered from the ire and mistrust that surrounded all his ventures and he died in professional failure. In the end, perhaps the greatest tragedy of Benedict Arnold’s life is his lasting legacy of ignominy and dishonor. Thus, the story is complete; the tragedy is ended.
Daniel James Brown, the author of The Boys in the Boat, uses Joe Rantz’ story to symbolize the way America was able to find hope in a time of hopelessness and despair in the world-the Great Depression, and Nazi Germany. Joe Rantz was kicked out of his home at a very young age, even though he hadn’t done anything wrong. Joe’s mom, “Thula exploded in the face of what she saw a lax discipline...she would not live under the same roof as Joe...went back upstairs and told [Harry’s] only son he would have to move out of the house. Joe was ten” (Brown 36). Joe’s life had changed right before his eyes, just like a lot of Americans lives and the Jews in Germany during the early 1930s.
The father’s wife had recently died, leaving him with the boy to take care of with the only mindset of keeping him alive, doing anything for their survival.

The boy starts out very scared and weak, always wanting to hide behind his father, knowing that one day he will die.

The gunshot was part of a shooting with his son and Harrison collapses to his death. This proves that the character is defeated by the establishment and the power of the establishment was too much for a single man to handle by himself. In addition, not one of his parents are able to fully remember him because they easily lose their train of thought either with the ear transmitter or not. The dystopian society in “Harrison Bergeron” can convince readers that there really is no such thing as being equal and we all should be proud to have our own unique styles and
