He is a coach and a Language Arts teacher. Redmond had not allowed Shelly on the basketball team because she was too aggressive. Shelly’s caseworker, Jim Avery, helped Shelly by going up against Redmond. He tried to get Redmond to reconsider politely at first, but Redmond wasn’t going to allow this. While Shelly was describing this to Bo, she said: “Redmond said that after he saw how willing I was to mix it up, he had requested my records and decided he couldn’t afford to have someone poisoning the team’s morale…” (140) This made her have an emotional break down, steal her mother’s car, and drive one hundred miles an hour down the freeway before it flipped over and rolled off the road.
When someone is to bring up the case around Jem, he tries to shut them down, he does not like hearing about it. Tom was found guilty and was soon killed after going to jail, and that hit Jem very hard, he was very tore up about it. In the book Jem specifically says, “No sir, they oughta do away with juries. He wasn’t guilty in the first place and they said he was.”(295) Jem constantly throughout the book claims that Tom is not guilty and wants it to change, and doesn’t know how to except that the jury said different and that’s how it has to
Hughes was one of the few kids who really wanted to see Jesus, but ended up lying to not keep his aunt and other adults waiting. The worse thing the pressure brought to Hughes was his loss of faith. He no longer could believe in Jesus, and he lost that faith while making other people happy that he had been “saved.” Orwell doesn't buy what society believes about beggars. Beggars have to go through a lot on the streets, to still be detested by society. Society doesn't care what beggars have to go through, they only care about who has a lot of money.
Andy Blevin dropped out of college due to key barriers that all other American college students are forced to deal with. These key barriers such as finances and lack of motivation challenged Blevin, and caused him to leave school. One of the major key barriers that caused him to dropout of college was motivation, “I enjoyed working hard, getting the job done, getting a paycheck,” Blevins recalled. “I just knew I didn’t want to quit.” (88). So instead of going to college, and having a job at the same, he dropped out.
However, as he grew up he became more associated with the harshness of slavery from his father who by no means was kind to the slaves. From witnessing these events Rufus would forever be changed. It would turn him into a man that would do what he believed to be wrong because he knew it was the only way it would work. When he got Alice to be with him romantically he tried to rape her and when that did not work, he used Dana to try and talk to Alice to get her to change her mind. When talking to Dana it became apparent that Rufus knew what he was doing was wrong, but he did not care because it was okay to do it and he felt he could not live without Alice by his side.
“‘Well it isn't so much for a deal as to help pay off one I already made,’ Dad said. ‘...But you know how those guys are. They get itchy when you owe them money. And it's not always comfortable to be there where they can scratch you.’” Ashes’ father is basically implying that he made a bet with someone and he has not paid them back. Typically when that happens, you are probably in trouble.
For example, when Johnny’s father replies to Bill and Sam’s note about the ransom he doesn’t seem to really care about Johnny, “ and I agree to take him off your hands. You had better come at night, for the neighbours believe he is lost, and I couldn’t be responsible for what they would do to anybody they saw bringing him back.” This shows the theme, because of Johnny's greediness to get attention from his father he says he doesn’t want to go home and tries to stay as long as he can which affects Bill and Sam because they end up paying when they weren’t even supposed
John says to Elizabeth, “ I have been thinking I would confess to them, Elizabeth” (Miller 135). This quotes shows that although John does not want to be hung, but he has a hard time evening thinking about confessing. The more John thinks about it he signs his name and admits to witchcraft, but after realizing what he has done he rips the paper up and goes to the wagon to get hung. This all shows how the fear of death almost over powered him and he almost lost his reputation that he was very proud of and wanted to keep. In the The Crucible, John Proctor’s motivation shifts from fear to redemption, which causes him to be accused of witchcraft.
Grierson surely would not approve that relationship, he tried to protect her daughter against a man like Homer from the beginning. Perhaps that was the reason why Emily was so inconsiderate and bought poison. Mr. Grierson was a Father, a Man, who was respected by Emily, and the only sin he could not have forgiven if his daughter had married with a poor worker. That could be the main reason why she went to the drugstore. Although she felt something, maybe (because of his father’s strict principle) she did not know what was that feeling, the meaning of love was unknown.
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
Sampson Davis. He, along with his friends Drs. George Jenkins, and Rameck Hunt, wrote the book The Pact: Three Young Men Make a Promise and Fulfill a dream describing their struggle of doing the right thing in their lives, but banded together and made the promise that they will all go to Seaton Hall University and become doctors. Davis is the focus because in a specific chapter he addresses his determination and his struggles. He believes that determination is focusing on a desired goal and that that it is the first step to a successful end (221).
I told him not to, but he just didn’t listen and look what happened. Wes has a past of selling drugs to many different people, he has learned the way of what and what not to do. Maybe it was because he valued his work and he didn’t want to take the chance of losing a new customer. “He couldn’t stop thinking about the money he could make off that sale- almost exactly enough to take care of this date.”(113) This shows that he values his work more than the chance of staying out of jail. If he had listened to himself on knowing it was a cop he wouldn’t have ended up getting arrested and
As this carried on in court Tom got more and more nervous towards the end. Atticus kept saying to him “I got this” like it would help him but that didn 't help Tom at all. He was also starting to worry about what would happen if they did win. People would be so mean to him. They would try to get him in court again to put him in jail.
I don’t want people to create more foster homes but I want to target the root cause of the problem. For instance, is someone lost their job and their way of coping with it was drinking because they knew they are going to have a hard time finding a job because they don’t have the proper documentation because this family possibly migrated to the United States. I want to create resources for families like these who have lost their jobs. If we find a solution to this problem we could avoid the father turning into an alcoholic over a period of time leading to eventually getting his family taken away because violence is stating to occur because he is under the influence most of the time. My goal is for the children to spend the as little
This is just another example of us being kept down. If we are going to have enough courage to come to college and attempt to learn, they will punish us with cost and make sure we have to work to stay so we can’t do as well as we should. They want to keep us uneducated and
