A humanitarian in Liberia named Leymah Gbowee wrote a book called Mighty be our Powers describing her experience of fighting for peace during the civil war. Leymah had faced tragedies which caused her to no longer trust men. During the Liberian war, the women of Liberia held the country on their shoulders while the men who were running it, were destroying it. Although Leymah eventually was able to trust men, she could not trust men for the majority of the book because of her past interactions with Daniel, and the political leaders in Liberia. Leymah was unable to trust Tunde, the man who could cherish her and be there for her, because of her past experiences with men.

This need is desperate because for many it has become a losing fight. People can seek control and quietly rebel, but many never get the control that their basic instincts teach them to seek out. Malala was ultimately shot because she tried to fight against the Taliban for control over her own life, and they had her shot so that she could not become an example for the people around her and inspire them to do the same. If people did not so desperately seek control over not only themselves but others too, Malala would not have been shot for speaking out. Without this pitiful need for control that any human feels, whether they be a submissive or dominant person, there would be no war or hatred, nor any real fact or order.
For instance, she had to pledge, judge, and urge for the separation to not take place because it would affect them both equally. As evidence, “He looked now more careworn and emaciated than as we described him at the scene of Hester 's public ignominy” that indicates how Hester was put forth once again by the public for the same sin that was committed. However, the second it was far more important because she was fighting for her daughter, Pearl’s hostility. Hester is shown at a low and vulnerable position in her life once again which could quickly be mistaken for weakness, that not exactly being the case because she is known to overcome her huge opticals. To many the way, Hawthorne characterizes Hester Prynne it may be complicated, but considering that her character has gone through a lot it is made clear that the character is not being dramatic but
Leo Buscaglia once said, “Let go. Why do you cling to the pain? There is nothing you can do about the wrongs of yesterday.” The past can be extremely difficult to let go of as past actions and events can continue to haunt an individual. The protagonist in Tennessee William’s A Streetcar Named Desire, Blanche DuBois, must contend with aspects of her past as she struggles to escape its troubled and scandalous ropes. The suicide of her husband has a lasting impact on her outlook on life as she places the blame on herself, causing her to become reluctant about letting go.
Daisy represents a modernistic woman who is very different from other women. The women of those times had to behave in a good manner and were very strict about their values but Daisy was a complete opposite. She thought that if men can have multiple relationships so why can’t women and this is the reason why she had an illicit relationship with Gatsby even after she was married to Tom. Her approach towards the values were completely flawed. Gatsby very well knew that Daisy is already married and still had gone for chasing his American dream.

The phrase I believe is the most important is “ This pearl is a sin it will destroy us.”. Juana who is Kino 's wife told him that after she tried to dispose of the pearl. She is repeatedly reminding him of this thry the story and telling him that he is grown only more obsessed with the pearl. We slowly find out he should have listened to Juana. But by not doing so and succumbing to greed his whole family suffered tremendous loss not only of the wealth they acquired but of all that was precious to them in
Despite trying to make up for her mistakes, people still spread rumors about her making her feel like she isn't good enough. She also felt the need to tell Amir about her past before their marriage to make sure he still wants to marry her. She begins to hate Afghan culture because of how they treats women differently. While ranting about it she tells
For instance, “in 1852 a special foreign miner’s tax aimed at the Chinese was passed by the California legislature” (Explore.museumca.org, 1996). Essentially, the Chinese were charged a certain amount of money to search for gold. Also, the native Mexicans in California were deemed foreign as well, therefore they too were taxed (Pbs.org, 2006). In addition, many Native Americans had to flee from the gold mines because their women were being raped and their men were targeted (Kosher, 2015). Nevertheless, people still continued to flock to
The politicians felt that the immigrants were a threat to them staying in power. To remain in power the politicians forced for laws such as the National Immigration Act of 1924, and the Chinese Exclusion Act to stay in power. They kept others out of the country, those seeking refuge, because they were afraid of losing their jobs. The nativist politicians did horrible things the immigrants, because they were scared of them and what they brought. In the progressive era, the textile factory owners were scared of the strikers.
Lately, I think a lot about the problems that Vancouver Island is facing now. And I suppose it’s time to establish a British Colony in Vancouver Island. To start with, in previous years, there are more and more American miners entering Victoria to look for gold without any restrictions, which is bad for our protection of gold. And if this situation continues, I’m worried that American government will take control or conquer Vancouver Island. Now we should do something fast, and I suggest establishing a new colony to reduce the bad influences the gold rush brings, such as the big external population in Victoria, and restrict the settlers to dig gold there.
She seemed like the only person who cared and payed attention to Ender. Peter was a bully to Ender, and his parents resented him because of the past they were trying to evade. Another imperative quote from chapter 3 is in the beginning when the two anonymous voices were talking. “‘He [Ender] won’t want to leave her. [Valentine]’ ‘So, what are you going to do?’ ‘Persuade him that he wants to come with us more than he wants to stay with her.’ ‘How will you do that?’ ‘I’ll lie to him.’ ‘And if that doesn’t work?’ ‘Then I’ll tell the truth.’” (Card, page 16) We can conclude that one of the voices is Colonel Graff because he’s the one who came to try to persuade Ender to go with him.
In “Pleasantville” and “As in the beginning” the characters experience difficult situations, making all the things being hard to conclude, or come back for the natural state. Both have something to miss, about the old part of life. They could give up, but they didn’t, because they knew that all the things will be better or get in a good place in the end, but not for sure. When David and his sister went to Pleasantville, they didn’t know how to come back, they passed for big and hard moments. They were differents, they knew and saw things that no one could see, making they showing the truth about the world, because in this ville, the fire didn’t exist.
