Throughout the trial we learn more about what actually happened, the catalyst for Peter’s actions and the perhaps not so innocent victims. Peter is eventually convicted and is sentenced to life in prison. A month after the final sentencing, Peter commits suicide by stuffing a sock down his throat. One year after the shooting we are taken back to Sterling High where a memorial had been erected and a plaque calls the building a “safe harbor” the validity of which could be called into question, because for many of the students, despite social standing, didn’t feel that Sterling really was a “safe harbor.” Many schools and situations are not “safe harbors” for students.
The Parkland shooting in Florida. A tragic school shooting in mid-February of 2018 has the whole country spinning circles around more gun control. My opinion and stand point on this subject is to open readers eyes to the fact that it simply will not work. The students pushing for more gun control are starting marches that have affected the schools around the nation in a walkout in March of 2018. This walkout was for the awareness that students don’t feel safe in their hometown schools and also bringing awareness for the seventeen students who lost their lives during the shooting.
April 16, 2007, started as a normal day. Virginia Tech students rushed to their classrooms to avoid being late, but little did they know the tragedy that was going to take place that dreadful day. Shortly after 10:00am 32 students lives had been taken by one of their fellow classmates. After the shooter ruthlessly shot and killed each one, he took his own life. April 16 will forever be recognized as a day of mourning and remembrance, but also as a day where we come together as a nation and overcome the defying odds we were left with.
There is always going to be another school shooting. That is not the part that breaks my heart, the part that breaks heart is watching others students go through the same things that I went and am still going through. Sophomore student Gabe Parker, someone who I thought was my friend, brought a handgun to my high school on January 23, 2018, and at 7:57 a.m. central time, opened fire on my classmates, killing 2, injuring 19 others. That is not the worst part. The worst part is the fact that even tho people (parents and teachers) try to make us (students) feel safe, some of us will never feel safe again, not at school, at work, at the store, when we are out with our parents, even at home.
“The issue came to a head in April when 11-year-old Jaheem Herrera committed suicide at his Atlanta-area home after his parents say he was tormented repeatedly in school. Officials denied it, and an independent review found bullying wasn’t a factor, a conclusion his family rejects.” (The Washington Times) This is why we need to enforce and be more strict on bullying rules. Kids are killing herself.
These questions may remind us of children on a long car ride, but perhaps the deeper meaning is that we are still children on the evolutionary road to enlightenment. The grass may be eternal, but we are not and the stark reality of the grass covering the dead and the blood and bullets is a reminder of that difference. The grass just does what grass does, it grows, and it covers. The grass does its work and that is all it wants to do. “Get on with your business humans,” it seems to say, “and I’ll get on with mine.”
and they are all planning a trip to Florida. Although it has been decided that they are going to Florida, the grandmother is frustrated and tries to convince her son and his family that they should go to Tennessee instead since more family lives there and there are sights to see there. She also argues that going to Florida would only put the family in danger as there was a serial killer on the loose who goes by the name of “Misfit”. This, in itself, already raises a red flag for readers since they just so happen to be travelling to a place where a serial killer is running loose. Despite the grandmother’s protests against their trip to Florida, they all get in the car and begin their journey.
My last cause of the white backlash is the forced integration. Federal troops remained outside the high school for a year, until integration was firmly established. From other schools there were also further resistance and 4 schools (including a Negro school) ended up closing during the 1958-1959 school year. A new plan of integration was then drawn up and in August 1959 the schools reopened. By 1963 only 100 of Little Rock 's 7000 Negro students were attending integrated
They were telling their own story, “what they were they doing or how they felt when a specific event occurred,” (354) not the story of the games or the boys and girls who were forced to fight to death to send a message to the districts and
There are many people in the war might be similar to the main character, Paul in the novel. They are students before the war, but nothing they had learned in the school can save them from the war. They used to learn about Shakespeare or maybe Aristotle, but when they are in the real battlefield, they have to learn how to survive, evading from the shells and firing with pistols. These youths may lose their life in every second of being at the front line, and as Paul said, they are no longer youth after joining in the war. We can talk about wars easily which seems that we know all the details of it, but we may never understand it.
Violence can trigger emotions that cannot be undone which can lead to regret. Wes’s father wanted to teach Wes that violence is not tolerated especially a lady. For the other Wes, he never had a father to guide him to make the right decisions or reprimand when he was wrong. This is one of the key factors into why the other Wes got into trouble with violence and drugs. Even though the author did experience trouble with violence and drugs, he realized violence would lead to more violence.
THOMAS HARTLEY PSY 9/28/19 The only way to discourage mass school shooting’s Nadia e. nedzel’s, concealed carry, in the article it talks about how even thou there were school shootings since the beginning of this nation because of, love hate or revenge a different type of school shoootings have taken place mass school shooyings mostly from a mentaly unbalanced shooter.

My family and I watched it on television where they broadcasted that because the university students, mainly from Beijing University were starving themselves and on the verge of dying, the military came in and removed them. There was no mention of students being killed, tanks or even guns at the scene. It was years later until I even knew that tanks would run over citizens if they weren’t fast enough to get away. Censorship was China’s favorite Photoshop. During and after the protests, everything was being tracked, opened and taken in order to keep this lip locked as possible.
The responsibility was laid out to them clearly, but the decision to downplay this massacre would lead to events soldiers wished never happened. By omission and commission, they suppressed reports of the incident and submitted false or misleading accounts to higher headquarters. (My Lai Massacre) By suppressing the news of the massacre, Calley and his fellow officers just dug themselves a deep hole. Surely they should have expected the cause and effect from this small decision.
The Narcos are mentioned because the mayor’s wife has a brother who is a Narco that might have a connection to the missing students. He makes us understand the government is a major part of the students disappearing by interviewing Gibler a journalist, Alejandro Paéz Varela a influential digital news site, and Solatinde human rights speaker. They all say their opinion on how the government is hiding information from the missing students parents and giving hope to them stated in article one “What causes less damage to the system?” Solalinde asked To say they [the students] were burned, with everything that implies? Or say they’re disappeared and that they don’t
