“How to Tell a True War Story” and “Ambush” are stories that both explore on topics: truth, the real definition of a true war story, and the role of truth. O 'Brien starts off “How to Tell a True War Story” with “This is true.” Starting this story with such a bold sentence not only makes it seem more true, but to some extent, it acts as a comfort statement to the narrator’s own doubts, as if there were unspeakable uncertainties and lies of the narrator. The title of this story also comes into play, with a meta-fictional name “How to Tell a True War Story”, as if it were a guide, a manual, having a true war story tell the readers how to tell a true war story. However ironically, towards the middle of the story, us as
Rudy showed “blessed are the meek” towards these people. Rudy’s family were some of the people who did not believe in him. When Rudy was sitting with his family by the television, he told them that he wanted to play for his family’s favourite football team, and his whole family laughed at him. Some of the most important people in Rudy’s life were also some of the least supportive people. When a child hears that someone so important to them believe that their dream will just be a dream, it is really hard for them.
In the second work, Crane takes a simple task, and turns it into a dangerous mission. Stephen Crane uses irony in “War is Kind,” and “A Mystery of Heroism,” to prove that he is opposed to the war by talking about loss and displaying people’s lives at risk. In Crane’s poem, “War is Kind,” he says that war is a good thing, while describing the horrors of it. Normally the word, kind, is used to describe something that is nice, and has a pleasant connotation.
A beautiful game manifested by the array of sportsmanship, leadership, brotherhood, honor and code, Football as it stands, is a game which unites and seldom divides. The bright side of football is always cherished and focused upon, even rightly so, because the dark side of it, has scars which could haunt ardent fans for a lifetime. Apart from all the last minutes or penalty shootout heartbreaks, which take a mental toll on players and fans alike, football can be utterly and purely 'dirty'. Stuck to teams which rue football's beauty by their cynicism and their antics, 'Dirt' was already there in football, waiting to be exploited and capitalized to pure genius.
Norton and I had the same ideas about why the parents sold him, and thought that he was happy. Norton said, “It also serves to absolve them from feelings of guilt as ‘They think they have done me no injury’. Having forced their son into enslavement, teaching him to sing ‘the notes of woe’, the parents then head to church to praise ‘God and his priest and king’, who, the boy tells us, ‘make up a heaven of our misery’. Interestingly, in an earlier draft, Blake wrote that this grim trio ‘wrap themselves up in our misery’, suggesting that they take comfort from the misery of others. The final version is far more powerful; the speaker’s parents collude with Church and State, actively constructing a heaven out of the misery of others, or, as Nicholas Marsh argues, ‘they “make up” a heaven where, in fact, there is “misery”’..”The parents believe that the boy is happy and serving God.
Team players have started to reduce in the modern sports era. Many players have become self-centered, even in team sports. High school athletes always want their names in the paper or want to get acknowledged by coaches or friends, but true team players do things that many people do not see. They may lead by example during practice or do little things that make a difference in the game. Linemen, on a football team, are great examples of this because the quarterback, running backs, and wide receivers get all the credit for great plays and touchdowns, while linemen have to block the three-hundred-pound man in front of them every time, or the play will get blown up.
