“When Doodle was five years old, I was embarrassed at having a brother of that age who couldn't walk, so I set out to teach him”(Hurst, 318). This quote continues to support my thesis because he tries to dangerously teach Doodle to be normal just because he wants a ordinary brother. In the short term, this worked out for him, but his disregarding of his brothers safety would soon come back to hurt him. One day when they were out practicing, a storm began to develop. Brother, thinking only of himself, ran as fast as he could, leaving poor helpless Doodle behind.
No one acknowledged his existence, until his face was broadcast on the local TV channel. He committed suicide and the students finally remember the shy boy from the hallway. Not only did Martin Luther King Jr. organize protests for change, he enforced the change through his powerful voice. He spoke words of integration and equality. Like King, we must learn to find our voice and to do what is right, even if we fear the consequences.
There are kids in highschool pregnant and nobody really pays attention or cares. I say that the theme of the outsiders is don 't judge a book by its cover. I think this because everyone thought the greasers were no good scum who were terrible people but they turned out to be nice. An example is johnny, Johnny was thought to be a very shy person. Then he stabbed bob in self defense and socs thought he was evil.
Everything that makes a person who they are is taken away from them. The concentration camp slowly takes Ellie’s humanity away from him too. When his father was struck, he just stood there and did nothing. “... I had not even blinked.
In every situation where the creature attempts to interact with others, he is shunned immediately, before even being able to say a word. The village even drives him away with the threat of weapons. This immediate judgement threatened the creature’s life and taught him immediately that society is unkind to those who fall outside of their idea of attractive. Because this is one of the first and only things the creature learns from his little interaction with society, it suggests that it is not only important, but also very
The fear for his safety not only physically isolated him, but emotionally scarred him. The monster is even “terrified” of his own reflection, suggesting there is no hope of acceptance from humankind since he cannot even accept himself (Shelley 121). The monster later comments that he was “drivest from joy for no misdeed” (Shelley 105). People were too quick to judge the monster’s image instead of
In the text it says, “…when they were unhappy, I felt depressed; when they rejoiced, I sympathized in their joys.” (Frankenstein by Mary Shelly Chapter 12) You could really stop right there, and that would be the end of the essay. How could you not imagine the love in his eyes? Who cares about someone that much that they’ve never even met, just observed. This right here shows us how the creature views the humans next door. Frankenstein doesn’t even seem to care about the fact that a few days earlier the “barbarous villagers” had tortured him.
The boys, later, come to the point of killing each other, which is because of the absence of adult supervision and self control. Therefore, the failure at government, the separation of the boys who want to have fun instead of focusing on rescue, and the murders of Simon and Piggy prove that “Lord of the Flies” is an example of the struggle to survive without an adult
Willy is a very common character in the real world and he just lets the negative aspects of his life get the best of him which leads to his suicide. Starting in Act One we are introduced to Willy and see that he has put all of his hopes into his kids Willy and Biff, which can be guessed that lead to the first part of his deep depression. By reading the play you can truly feel the conflict between Willy and Biff. By reading this it can be assumed that Willy most likely thought that the fault of Willy’s childhood such as failing math class was his fault and his alone. Many parents go through this problem, but it can be taken that Willy really took this to heart, he took his childrens failures as his own because he was their father and saw himself in his
He practically confesses his insanity is all for show because he says so and because he tells his best friend, Horatio, not to worry about him whatsoever. Towards the end of act 5, Hamlet again admits his insanity caused his previous actions. Rather this time, it may have been more for saving his life rather than planning to end someone else’s. Before the deadly duel against Laertes, Hamlet decides he should apologize for his actions at Ophelia’s grave and for killing Polonius. “What I have done, That might your nature, honor, and exception Roughly awake, I here proclaim was madness,” he pleads.
Mom, this is your son hector and I hope you one day read this so you can hear about my adventures of being kept in a horrible camp for bad boys. Here it isn 't even the work they force us to do that upsets me the most, it 's the emotion they put you through. The kids call me names like idiot, worm, mole, and other saddening things.

So, they completely shut us down, that moment triggered something in me!
