Humans, as the world’s largest growing species, must make choices everyday. Choice, a shared humanity characteristic, applies to humans because of the choices they must make, daily. In Struck by Lightning, by Chris Colfer, Carson Phillips’ father chooses to manipulate Carson to seem like a good person to his new wife, April. Carson writes, “... it was Dad’s way of authenticating something with April. He had tried using me and it didn’t work,” (Colfer, 203).
The Lorax by Dr.Seuss is a entertaining story that promotes caring for the environment and the Earth. However many people unknowing don’t realise that the story has a deeper meaning about corporate greed. One example is that in the story too many Truffula Trees were being cut down and as a result there's wasn’t enough Truffula Fruit to go 'round for the Bar-ba-loots which means they had to wander around scavenging for food. The cooperation that was chopping the Truffula Trees down said “BUT... business is business! And business must grow regardless of crummies in tummies, you know”.
The Lorax, by Dr. Seuss, is a video that explains what the lumber industries are doing to forests, along with the habitats inside those forests. The Truax, by Terry Birkett, is a short story that explains why the lumber industries are cutting down forests, what they are also doing to help the environment and regrow forests. Dr. Seuss in the lorax makes the point that lumber industries are cutting down too many trees at a time and that will harm the environment in the future. In reality, as stated in the Truax it is stated that for every tree that is cut down, five seeds are planted. The lumber industry seems to be helping the environment rather than harming it, since they are only cutting down one tree, but planting five others that will
The Lorax written and illustrated by Theodor Seuss Geisel is a moral tale addressing the impact of a large corporation and its effects on the environment and economy. Suess illustrates nature in a way that portrays the text. At the beginning of the fable there is a dark color pallet in the illustrations thus creating a polluted dismal environment. In contrast, the illustrations become more appealing to the eye when the introduction of the Truffula tree forest occurs. The Once-ler is never fully seen throughout the story, only the damage that is caused by his greed.
The Lorax and “Easter’s End” are both examples of how societal decisions and structures can destroy the environment. In The Lorax, Dr. Suess creates a world in which the decisions made by an entrepreneur sends the environment past the point of reparability, meanwhile in “Easter’s End”, a scientist examines the possible cause of Easter Island's decline in population due to lack of food and resources caused by the over farming of the land. The Lorax and “Easter’s End”, while both dealing with the destruction of the environment, differ in three major ways: the method of destroying the environment, the ways in which the destruction could have been avoided, and the overall effects the destruction
Humans have become desensitized to pollution and degradation of the environment. The use of non-recyclable materials and disposing of waste irresponsibly has become something that we see every day, and we do not acknowledge as something harmful, because it does not directly affect us. However, there are both fictional and nonfictional examples of excessive use of resources and the misuse of materials that we do have, that can bring to the attention the damage that we are really causing. Two examples of this are Dr. Suess’ The Lorax, and Easter Island. Although very different, both the inhabitants of the town in the Lorax and Easter Island both contributed to degradation of the environment.
A children’s book that I will be discussing, is called The Lorax by Dr. Seuss. The Lorax is about a boy who's living in a ruined town, and he wants to know the story of the Lorax, so he goes to the Once-ler, an elderly inventor/manufacturer. Doc Brown—ahem, the Once-ler—tells the boy how the town came to be ruined, and most importantly, what he can do to turn things around (“Shmoop”, 2017). The setting of this story takes places in barren town and a lush forest. A setting is where a story takes place and in this story the author makes the setting believable for young children. No matter how fantastic they are, settings become believable when an author provided rich details that enable a reader to envision them (Galda, Cullinan, & Sipe, 2016).
My Memoir Why are there no lines? Why are there no goals? Why were the benches not moved? Just some of the things that went wrong on 9/12/15. That is the day my soccer team won 8-0 at our first home soccer game. The tensions were high and we were stressed no lines or goals.
When I was in my freshmen year of high school I was known as the guy who was too afraid to speak his mind and become more interactive with my years. After over a year of depression and loneliness I was destined to just run away and disappear from the world. That was until my family realize about my problems and decided to put me as part of the youth group known as the Young Peoples Department, where I have desperately tried to avoid, to increase my self-esteem and to motivate me be evolved with my own community. With that booster I was able to explore other groups which includes cooking at my church, ushering, becoming president of my own youth group, and join a group called the Upward Bound. One day I decided to volunteer at an airshow where
What vision do you have of yourself ten years from now? I see myself in the National Basketball Association (NBA) getting money and living the good life. I know it will be tough because life is not easy. I will have to work harder than others to get recognized. I will face a lot of tough obstacles, but I know my main three obstacles.
