Nwoye and Okonkwo had a rocky relationship from the beginning but it only solidified once Ikemefuna was killed. Christianity being introduced to Umuofia showed Nwoye that he had a purpose in life and he didn’t have to be just like his father. Nwoye and Okonkwo had a bad relationship because they could never accept the fact that they had more differences than similarities,this caused them to separate from each other permanently. Stephen Covey said “Strength lies in differences, not in similarities.” If Nwoye and Okonkwo would have been able to set their differences aside and tried to accept each other then maybe Nwoye wouldn’t have converted to
So what was the point of the war if in the end he was murder and they ended up losing everything. It doesn’t make sense why they killed, because someone didn’t want to be Christian. Maybe they had their own religion. So to me it looks like the war was for nothing because even nowadays they are many different religions out there and everyone has their own opinion about religions. I do see even now if you’re not a Christian you get treated differently.
They were forced to leave their homes to move somewhere they did not know about. Also how badly they were treated and the war against one another unlike the Jews the Native Americans were not put in death camps but they were placed somewhere they had no idea about that area so in rebellion of not accepting this forced change the Native Americans decided to fight back against the Americans to get their ways and land back to the way it was before. During the war against Americans the Native Americans did lose a lot of lived like mother’s, children, men, women, people just in general who had loved one same as the
Suggesting that only a few people are able to achieve what they are too, while others just fail or are terrorized for no reason, just like how Orr and others were being, for expressing themselves, wanting equality. However, Orr did not join the Civil Right Movement because he truly felt passionate about ending racial discrimination, but rather escape the pain of killing his brother accidentally at the age of
He wanted to spend his life with something that didn’t care about how different he was from everybody else, he didn’t want to be ridiculed by people who thought he was troubled, and he especially didn’t want to be with something or someone that emotionally and physically hurt him. Also, Curley’s wife had been increasingly criticized through the story mainly for being a woman. She wasn’t even given a name. And, after Lennie kills Curley's wife, it is said that “the puppy lay close to her”(92). The author wrote this line to
Some children feel oversensitive to death, as they killing of a fly might make them cry. Other children however, do not understand the seriousness with which death should be handled. As people grow and experience more loss, they better understand the seriousness with which it should be handled, as well as understanding that it is a part of life. At the beginning of the story, Huck glosses over death as if it’s nothing. He even willing states that he would kill his loved ones.
When the people in this society leave no chance for change they stop all chance of growth. The reason for this is because when they genetically engineered these embryos they cut out all chance for mutations, although; they are taking away diseases and bad things. This means there that people will eventually die off if they don’t change because of natural selection. With these people doing this they are toying with nature. They decided, “to abolish the love of nature” so they could have a more stabile community in some people’s eyes what they are doing is “playing god.” Some things can be useful though such as giving babies a better chance to live by taking away diseases, and other harmful
This took so long dude, and i got rolled by my mom last night haha. As much as he was devastated by decision the clan elders made with Ikemefuna, he didn’t want to show anyone that he was weakened by this choice of Ikemefuna to die. The elders to him that he didn’t have to be apart of killing Ikemefuna, but he declined and went with the others to kill him. He did this because he wanted to show everyone that he could lead the clan and that he would make any decisions by emotion. AKA he didn’t want to be called a pussy.
But I still had my culture try to blend both of it together and fit in. But the consequences of not fitting in is bad, your family won’t talk to you they will kind of like disown you. Talk mess to you until you come back in the culture once you are in there is very high exceptions. But the rewards are that anything happens toy money or in trouble the culture family will help you out raise money for you just to get out of the predicament. The advantages of being in the culture you know they got your back, but the faults are once you’re out you can’t come back
Although they did care greatly for Chris and his sister, they had not shown that in enough ways to prevent the tragedy of Chris’ fate. The fact that his parent were there for his physically, but not mentally had a great effect on him. According to the movie and the book “Into The Wild”, I perceived that the major catalyst for Chris to leave was his parents. Even when he was younger, he had to protect his younger sister from their parents when they would produce fierce fights that led to some physicalities. So in turn, Chris ended up being fed up and couldn’t handle the stress, which concluded with him to leave.
The crusades was also a very sad and depressing time. Many people who didn 't even fight in the crusades had lost their lives because of the religion they believed in. If they were not the ones to lose their lives then they had lost someone important to them.Document 3 states that the crusades sometimes happened because christians were trying to take back their land from muslims. Some were only looking to fight for their religion but others had done it for fun. This is relevant because people had lost their lives because they believed in certain religions.
However, despite this fact the treaty was still ratified and now we are going to get forced out of our homes. This removal may not seem very important to anyway outside of the Cherokee nation because they do not understand the gravity of the situation. It is not as simple as simply moving. Even if we did move the task itself would prove to be too difficult for many of our elders and children, plus the trail westward has its own dangers. Even if we did forgo this, we still do not want to leave this land for it was given to us by our gods.
My feelings toward spankings is it wrong because some parents take it to far. No, when I have children I 'm not going to spank them. The reason why I would not spank my children because there are other methods of discipline that don 't involve you putting your hands own your child. Yes, I was spanked as a child and it also hurt. Getting spanked made me feel angry, but most of the times I got spanked because my old sister would tell my mom and grandmother I was hitting her.
Sometimes it is best to understand the law first before obeying it. When one thinks a law is unjust, they will go out of their way to go against it and do something about it. At a certain point, one doesn’t have to act accordingly to what they don’t believe in, but they can’t do whatever pleases them. There has been many controversies involving the act of non violence civil disobedience. Although most feel like breaking an unjust law might be the best solution to what they think is right, in reality, I agree to the fact that people are afraid to face the consequences that are given after their actions.
