When Brent was younger, he was in advanced programs and did well in school. After a couple of years, he started slacking off and ultimately asked his parents if he could leave the program; they agreed. This decision resulted in a downward spiral, consisting of: Brent attempting to kill himself many times, failing most, if not all of his classes, and he also succeeded in hurting himself by setting a gasoline soaked robe on fire while wearing it. Overall, my favorite parts of Burn Journals by Brent Runyon are the detail in the book, the fact that it’s a true story, and how he wrote about a tough/real topic. The author, Brent Runyon, was very skilled at incorporating all of the small details into the novel.

(“Poor Grendel’s had an accident,” I whisper. “ So may you all) (Gardner 174) Was the last words Grendel had to say in his last moments of life to the people watching him die. I believe that Grendel said this in the way of a curse to the people. Since Grendel meets the people at the beginning of the story after his bull attack, he believed that everyone was nice but after being with them for a short period of time he realizes that humans are evil. For example, in the book it states, “You’re all crazy,” I tried to yell, but it came out a moan.

What we have here is the continued illegal occupation for 122 years now. Were not advocating telescopes can’t be built on the mauna, but we’re advocating is if you do build a telescope on the mauna, do it according to the law. Everything that has been done on Mauna Kea is in direct violation of international law and the laws of occupation, it’s the Hawaiian government, its nationals, its agencies that make that decision, not a foreign entity or illegal
At the very base of his research, Euclidean Geometry, Elisha believed Euclid required proof of his postulates and when Elisha is proved wrong, that his questioning is unnecessary, the entirety of his life’s mission becomes irrelevant. Also, his struggle between Roman reason and Jewish faith detaches himself from the Jewish values he once had confidence in and could rely on. When faced with the dilemma of giving information to the Romans Elisha’s logic outweighs his faith which allows him to continue to fulfill what is asked of him. Elisha is heart-broken that he does not is considered an outsider amongst the Jewish people after his brutal betrayal of his own kind. Towards the end, of part two, Elisha is having a conversation with Charicles about Euclid’s Elements of Geometry and Charicles points out, “if man has not found truth in geometry, then he is incapable of discovering it anywhere” (Steinberg 467).
