People should always remember the devastating event when six million Jews were killed in Nazi Germany. This event was The Holocaust, and it occurred from 1933-1945. The Nazis captured Jews and kept them in concentration camps, then killed them, and burned them. Homosexuals, gypsies, and people with disabilities were also killed as well. The killings and oppression of the “inferior” people was tragic, and most people find it unspeakable to talk of or write about.
Harper Lee’s To Kill A Mockingbird is about a young girl and her family’s life as they grow up in Maycomb County, Alabama. During this time Scout and Jem experience the trial of Tom Robinson and the mystery of man named Boo Radley. A central theme in To Kill A Mockingbird is that loneliness can have a deeply harmful effect on society. One of the ways in which the story examines the concept that lonesomeness can considerably harm society is how Mayella Ewell’s loneliness leads to the trail of rape against Tom Robinson.
Great umber and vermillion-tainted clouds heaved upward by the summer winds that rolled across the prairies. The tepid air pushed by lazy gusts crept up behind my back and took me to that place where faded memories turn in restless sleep. My path then snaked its way around a gentle bend and then my heart began to sadden as I gazed upon the village that had changed my life so much. To die – at least that person that had long abandoned me had somehow gone astray and left me now a broken man. Long ago that solitary sole had disappeared as the ravens gathered and prepared to fly.

What are you willing to risk? As a boy, Philippe Petit dreamt of performing daring feats for dazzled crowds. On Aug 7, 1974 Petit attempts the seemingly impossible stunt. By walking on a wire between the two towers of the World Trade Center.
The story begins with an unnamed narrator recalling the story of a real incident that his grandfather told him. In the dense and remote forests of Cincinnati, in1830, there lived a man named Murlock, who appeared much older than he actually was. This text explores the supernatural aspect of the man’s house and the mystery surrounding his wife’s death, who died many years before he did. The narrator visits the much talked about cabin only to run out of the place with fear. The fact that not many people knew about his wife and her death, and the fear of spirits haunting his cabin, sparks an interest in the mind of the narrator.
“In my younger and more vulnerable years my father gave me some advice that I've been turning over in my mind ever since. “Whenever you feel like criticizing any one,” he told me, “just remember that all the people in this world haven't had the advantages that you've had”” (5). The opening passage in the book, The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald, shines a light on the personality of the narrator Nick Carraway. A very similar quote is one Nick Carraway seems to understand, it is this, “Never judge someone without knowing the whole story.
Within my set I made many stylistic choices to accomplish a modern take with Greek influences such as using a modern door (1), columns with vines (2), the shape of the pool (3), lattice with vines (4), and curtains (5).

Using a modern door would help the audience recognize its purpose and would also help the audience relate to the characters as audience members use doors every day. One of the benefits with using a modern door instead of an archway, or none at all, maintains the separation between the humans and the gods.

The announcement came as no surprise, however, his telling them with that specific date, turned it into a reality. “I know this is difficult, but please understand, for several people it furnishes an income. If they temporarily replace me, which they did last month, they suffered because of the refunds that were issued.
The debate over Frankenstein's creature being human is an ongoing discussion, but it is really based on the person perspective on the actions that he took. In my opinion, the creature is like any other human with the same emotions, making mistakes, and realizing them. Although there might have been things that may seem not human, but relating to these days, there has been unfortunate killings by many people. The only difference in the creature and humans is the deceiving looks of the creation. Despite the other view point, there is more human like idiosyncrasies in the creature than what it appears.
