First body paragraph The social exclusion between Jin & Monkey King are very relatable. In this case, they both want to fit in with society. On page 14 when Monkey King was trying to go to a party, the guards wouldn't let him in just because he wasn’t wearing shoes and since he was just a monkey. On page 33 when Jin just came into a new school all the kids made fun of him just because how he looks. Both of these characters were being excluded from their own society.
Dedication is a feeling of very strong support for or loyalty to someone or something. Dedication is even in the title No Easy Day.

There are other quotes if dedication in this book. Another one is " The Only Easy Day Was Yesterday".
Menlo Park Academy simply takes the good, gifted from public schools, and hurts the public school system. Of course Menlo’s test scores are high, they have all gifted students. The teachers are a hit or miss, some are really great, and some not so much. Most teachers also play favorites, and make it obvious. There is a ‘dean of students’ (yes, a dean of students in a k-8 school), who play 's obvious favorites, allows his favorites to do anything, while the ones he doesn 't like get punished.
The idea of classroom causing problems for America’s society is elaborated when President Johnson explains that many children in America don’t have enough money to afford school. “There your children’s lives will be shaped. Our society will not be great until every young mind is set free to scan the farthest reaches of thought and imagination.” In order for a society to be great, education is the foundation; schools are where child learn about their world, and what it is they will do in the future to earn money to live a good life. And to better prove his idea Johnson states, “Each year more than 100,000 high school graduates, with proved ability, do not enter college because they cannot afford it,” then questions what will happen in years when time has become elapsed to conclude any efforts are needed to come into play for there to be a Great Society. Another statement about classrooms is they are “outdated”- as Johnson calls it.
What leads many people to act in the moment. In the novel, A Separate Peace, the main character, Gene, is jealous of his roommate, Finny. Finny has it all: the looks, the athleticism, and the free state of mind. All Gene likes about himself is his smarts; however, he so desperately craved to be like Finny that one day Gene made a decision he could never take back. Gene and Finny went to a lake to swim and decided to jump off a tree into the lake, and when they were about to jump off the tree, Gene "accidentally" pushed Finny off the tree causing Finny to break his leg.
When I read “Positive Stereotypes Are Hurtful, Too”, that makes me think about a story that has been heard for a long time. That story talks about fish family, they have a son. They sent their son to the animal school. The son has a lot of classmates such as monkeys, cheetahs, birds, etc. Fish parents are an expectation on their son because a son was moved to many schools because of lack of potential.
He tells some of the good and the bad times he had during that time in his life. To begin, Gene goes back to his old school to Devon High 15 years later. It was a depressing time due to the fact, World War 11 was going on. He talks about how Phineas, Genes Best friend, would jump out of a tree into the water because all the seniors would do it. Finny, which is Phineas is a thrill seeker and he is very athletic.
The result from Ben and his mother hard work payed off, when Ben got into a great college and later on became a famous world wide surgeon.

So I don 't fight it. I feed off it.
“Scientists who spend years of their lives trying to find cures for diseases … The kid who stands alone instead of joining a gang, which would give him an instant identity … People who take risks despite fears.” After careful examination of the quote, it became apparent that one's everyday human beings can be heroes in their own way, for doing what is right, rather than doing what comes with a reward. Stone uses his imagery to clarify and clearly paint stories of heroism that those of many ages can relate to on a personal level, such as facing one’s fears. Also, Stone adds to his already extensive list of heroes by saying, one does not have to look far for inspiration to be a good person, they can look to friends and family. All in all, in the article “Where I Find my Heroes” written by Oliver Stone, Stone uses the rhetoric devices of examples and imagery to further explain his definition of heroes. Stone uses creative ways to help the reader follow his idea of a hero, such as evolving his writing with his ideas.

We have to dream such as Randy Pausch did. Maybe his dream could be different of our dream because his dream was cure his cancer, but it is not important what is our dream, the important is dream because every successful people have dreamed more than once, so if they could become true their dreams we also can do it. This quote leads us to the another great quote: “I was heartbroken, but I was not deterred. I would find a way around this brick wall.” Trying to become true our dreams we are going to have a lot of problems, but we do not have to deter, we have to work harder than we have been working because that is the only way that we are going to being successful; although, we cannot change the cards we are dealt, just how we play the hand. I also realized with this book that I have been spending a lot of time complaining about my problems, and when I complain about some problem nothing changes, but if I use that time working hard to accomplish my goal, I could get
According to UNICEF, 22,000 children die each day due to poverty. Children around the world grow under poverty, and its effect can last throughout their lifespan. The main effects of growing up in poverty include poor health, the lack of an education, and high risk for teen pregnancy.

One of the reasons I want to become an Occupational Therapist Assistant is to help people who have been diagnosed with Asperger’s Syndrome. Albert Einstein once said “Everybody is a genius, but if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.” People with Asperger’s syndrome are often misjudged because of their “disabilities.” Symptoms of Aspergers: There are several different symptoms that are shown when a person has Asperger’s Syndrome. Not all people with Asperger’s Syndrome have all of the symptoms, but they do have some. However, having one, some, or most of the symptoms does not guarantee a person has Asperger’s Syndrome. A child with Apserger’s syndrome tends to have difficulties
At the beginning “To kill a mocking bird”, Jem was very carefree and untroubled, but throughout the novel, he changed for the worse. Jem was always playing with Scout and Dill without a worry on his little mind until the life of adulthood got to him one day. Jem slowly stopped hanging out with friends, just to begin worrying about harshness of everyone in Maycomb. I believe when everyone began calling Atticus a “nigger lover”, Jem began to get more harsh toward everyone, even his dearest sister, Scout. If scout were to as to play before, Jem would hop right to it and they would go play a game down the street, but now, Jem would give his sister the cold shoulder and tell her to grow up.
