The Cold War is often seen as a dark time in American history, not just because of the international conflict, but because of the strife it caused within the United States itself.

Summer brought a conclusion to AP exams, AP and Honors classes, and Swim Team. Although I grateful for the much deserved break, I had an overwhelming urge to become an active member for my community. I knew I needed to obtain my mark in the world in a special way during the summer large-scale or not. However, I never thought I would volunteer at a food bank. As an acutely withdrawn and self-conscious person, I’d much rather prefer to assist out behind the scenes, as a dutiful background member. Volunteering at a busy food bank transformed me in a way I couldn’t even imagine. Being up front and center among people taught me confidence I had never experienced. While performing my countless roles (providing prayer for clients, setting up food

When the topic of volunteering would be mentioned upon me and my peers, we would most likely change the subject or disperse. Volunteering is something that is rising in our generation, yet is hidden in the shadows at the same time. In Kent Ansen’s essay, “Should the United States Establish Mandatory Public Service for Young Adults?” the author tells the audience why public service should be mandatory. I believe that volunteering is an amazing subject that comes with unbelievable benefits to the person and the environment that is affected by the, but at the same time, should not be mandatory for everyone.
Time presents many challenges in life, as evident in a passage from Dalton Trumbo’s, Johnny Got His Gun. Not only does Trumbo craft a compelling story that allows readers to immerse themselves in the seemingly unbreakable relationship between a father and his son, Joe, but he also lends substantial meaning to an emotional story about how a relationship can endure time’s tests. Throughout the story, Trumbo misses no mark when developing Joe’s relationship with his father as one that is adventurous, humble, and timeless. In order to effectively characterize their relationship as such, Dalton Trumbo intricately employs meaningful imagery, an effective third person point of view, and noteworthy symbolism.
The original political parties in America differed on their views for many things. For instance, a national bank, amount of strength for the government, and the interpretations of the Constitution. One of their biggest disagreements is the view of an alliance with the British vs. an alliance with the French.
In the movie, “Johnny Got His Gun,” Johnny's flashbacks are from a combination of ether and the battle Johnny made it through. His head is very messed up and injuries are very bad. Because of these nightmares, they bring him flashbacks. It is on account that his injuries are so bad that remembering home and his girl are his ways of coping. His first flashback is of having conversations with his girl. When he's leaving, the band becomes so loud nothing else can be heard. This could be the way his body identifies that he is now deaf, which he comes back to the here and now and realizes he is deaf and all covered in bandages. For the doctor and nurse, Johnny is just another injured patient needing to be seen to and healed. They do not speak

Tenessee Williams is one of the most outstanding playwrights in American Theatre. His play The Glass Menagerie premiered in Chicago in 1944 and was an instant hit. It is set in the days of the Great Depression of 1930s when unemployment, inflation and shortage of necessary things had made the lives of people all over the world miserable. The playwright has sought to evaluate this era that caused financial as well as emotional trauma through depiction of the plight of a middle class family living in St. Louis, Missouri. The play deals with the memories of Tom Wingfield, an officer in the Merchant Navy, who had deserted his poor mother, Amanda, and disabled sister, Laura, in order to pursue a life of adventure but suffers from acute remorse due to his realisation of what his helpless family must have gone through in his absence. The objective of this paper is to study the reasons of Tom’s abandonment of his family and his perpetual anguish as its result.
