Morris starts off eerily by talking about her geiger counter, and how it went off the closer and closer so got to the Chernobyl nuclear power reactor. After a major nuclear meltdown in April 26, 1986 almost everyone in the surrounding area was removed since the housing was deemed “unsafe” for humans. Despite the widespread terror a community stayed, all strong, powerful babushkas. These women in the face of danger defied authorities, and common sense, and decided to stand their ground and stay on their homesteads. Naturally anyone who would hear about this would either presume these babushkas to be dead yet they are still going strong with a community of 200.

It was a typical Friday morning—and let’s not kid ourselves, most teachers enjoy Fridays. But this day would be different for first-grade teacher Vicki Soto. When a gunman entered Sandy Hook Elementary, killing twenty-six people, Vicki threw herself in front of her students, while many of her other pupils had already been hidden in a nearby bathroom. And while we mourn the deaths of those women and children who perished, we can see true heroism in what Vicki Soto and others showed on that tragic day.
There was so much going on during this tragic situation that it became more of a recovery mission. “There is no doubt that the school had ample room to accommodate such personnel. Yet medical responders who rushed to sandy hook elementary school upon receiving word of the tragedy were denied entry to the school and forced to set up primary and secondary triages off school grounds and wait for the injured to be brought to them (Tracy).” This makes sense because the majority of the victims were dead upon arrival. There was an outrageous amount of concerned parents and interested news crews surrounding the elementary school campus, moving the paramedics to the fire station gave them an area that was cleared and much more convenient for

During the war against Japan we dropped two nukes to defeat them and many people believed that it was over the top and unnecessary because they were on the edge of giving up. Like in document 7 when James Byrnes said “Japan was essentially defeated and that we could win the war in another six months.” (James Byrnes) This was simply not true in document 2 H. H. Arnold said, “Nevertheless the abrupt surrender of Japan came more or less as a surprise; for we had figured we would probably have to drop about 4 atomic bombs” (General H. H. Arnold) this is perfect evidence of how Japan was not willing to give up easily, because he was a General and the Commander of the American Army Air Force. So, Arnold would be able to know how war works better than anyone and if he believes that Japan would need four nukes to end the war, it means they would not give up easily.
It was needless to say that at that point after the crash everyone was scared. There were more than just random individuals on that shuttle. The crew on the shuttle was relatable to every American citizen. On that day, husbands, wives, and children were stripped of their hopes and dreams as their loved ones died on their journey. Reagan knew that he had to mention this fear while promoting individuals to keep their hope alive and to keep trying.
Cheez-its are not allowed in the cafeteria because every student in the cafeteria started a food fight with Cheez-its. The students and Mrs. Conway have been planning to pull a prank on Mr. Carter because it was his last year as a principal. While we were planning the prank, students didn’t want to do it because they thought that they would have to be put into detention. On November 14, 2012, everyone brought four to five packages of Cheez-its to lunch, but some people brought more just so the fight will be longer.
Moreover, the Japanese were prepared to lose every soldier they had because of their firm belief in, “’Ketsu-go,’ decisive battle,” (4.2:04) which had already cost them hundreds of thousands of military and civilian lives. In an attempt to avoid any more bloodshed than necessary, The United States chose to bomb Hiroshima and Nagasaki, two of Japan’s most
The national news broadcasters interrupted all television programming in order to inform the nation of the tragic events that took place at approximately 11:19 that morning. On the news they displayed images of everything from blood splattered sidewalks in front of the school to grieving families and friends mourning the loss of their loved ones. The media was unknowingly desensitizing their viewers to tragedy, due to the fact that they would not be forced to witness so many traumatized and pained faces at one time again until some years

This was reality for most people in Japan, in Document 4 Takeharu Terao one of the few Atomic Bomb Survivors in Hiroshima says “Just before eight, an air raid siren sounded. We took cover while complaining, because we were already accustomed to the siren.” These students weren’t even prepared for an attack, they didn’t expect anyone to bomb a populated city no matter how bad the war had gotten but America did. There were many bombing during WWII but the reason why they aren’t talked about as much as the bombing of Nagasaki and Hiroshima is because they were bombings on military bases and soldiers, most soldiers were prepared to die for their country and would do anything to keep their country safe but citizens aren’t required to feel the same. They were innocent people, families were torn apart, children were killed and hospitals, a place where you were supposed to recover were destroyed (Document 7).
High school students came into the diner and saw the colored people in their seats. I saw from the window in the back diner that they were taunting them and throwing food at them. I could see them being dragged across the diner where the door was, but they would get up and sit right back where they were. They would treat them with such hostility, like if their lives didn’t matter to them. Everything in the diner was a chaos, there was food everywhere.
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.
