In the situation of a hysteria, there always are people who don’t participate in it. They will often stand out for justice, and point of the ridiculousness of the hysteria. Reverend Hale and Giles Corey are people who behave in that way. At first, Hale’s opinion toward the whole incident of witch hunt is same as the people in Salem. However, as the whole incident becomes out of control, he realizes something is wrong.
Youth violence has affected my life because from seeing all the violence at a young age I can already be scared for life. Growing up I heard all the terrible things that kids do, that people do, that the whole world does. It’s sad to see all the bullying that people do, kicking, punching, even stabbing. It doesn’t even have to be physical, a person can commit suicide from being harassed. If someone gets berated every day they get the feeling that they aren’t loved making them think that they are better off dead.
The school environment is one that has been stressed to be a safe and enjoyable place to learn. However, for many individuals, that is not the case. Students around the world have very unique experiences at school, which can unfortunately become abhorrent. According to the Center of Disease Control (CDC), and average of 96 Americans lose their lives to gun violence each day (Gun Violence by the Numbers). There are several causes of death by gun violence, but one of the causes that have become a growing problem is school shootings.
This very difficult problem in Native homes can be traced back hundred of years, stemming from many centuries of torment for the Indigenous people. According to John Lowe of “The Journal of Community Psychology”, “Some researchers have argued that the use of boarding schools, relocation to urban areas, and the past termination policies of the federal government have all played a role in the life of disintegration of the culture and health of Native Americans” (3). This claim supports the notion that the incredible generational trauma Native Americans have endured for so long is the primary cause of the people’s drug addiction and dependence. Naomi Schaefer Riley of USA Today states, “High rates of addiction in Indian country stem from the violence and cultural destruction brought upon Natives over the past 200 years, resulting in generational trauma” (Riley 1). This statement, like that of Lowe’s, means to suggest that because of the many abuses inflicted upon Native tribes since Europe first began to colonize, the Native people have been forced to endure extreme poverty and life threatening conditions, and in turn drug abuse for many of their people.
In To Kill A Mockingbird, it says, “He choked you, he hit you, then he raped you, that right”(Lee 190)? The book has violence of choking, hitting, and raping which are some reasons the book was banned. These topics make some students uncomfortable and have the right to learn about something else. Harper Lee states, “I guess it ain’t your fault if Uncle Atticus is a n****r-lover besides, but I’m here to tell you it certainly does mortify the rest of the family” (Lee 85). Throughout the book, there are many times the “N-word” has been used.
One of the main topics in the lottery was keeping up with the traditions. Many people follow the tradition blindly due to what could happen to them for trying to rebel against it. They follow due to the fear of the outcomes and the effects it could have on their families and the opinion that other townspeople will have of them. Many understand how gruesome the tradition is and how barbaric it is but they still continue blindly following. That is one of the themes in the story.
As a result of the society’s lack of understanding concerning mental illnesses many teenagers suffer from disorders, which causes them to commit suicide if not given the proper treatment. Mental illness is a complicated concept to understand however it affects millions of people every day. “The term mental illness represents a mental, behavioral, or emotional ailment that causes impairment in functioning an interpersonal relationships and is sufficient enough in duration”(Mullen Crowe 401). When an individual hears someone say the term mental illness they may equate it to someone in a mental institution or someone who is “crazy”. This is a completely stereotypical way to think because mental diseases are much more complicated than that.

Instead of sharing my opinion about pools and swimming venues, I decided to just mull over at how our society nowadays display such a lack of respect for other people.” The disrespect the youth today are showing all starts at home. Parents are not caring what trouble their kids get into and that causes problems. When people tolerate disrespectful behavior, it eventually leads to crime and
But when they get behind the wheel of a car that person lose control in their car and panic. This all leads in the inedible, they hit another pedestrian possibly killing or seriously injuring the other person that share the road with them. Respectfully, many have witnessed someone losing love ones to an accident that involves drinking and driving. Too many times, as citizens we as a community don’t get involved or react until this tragedy enters our own family.
For kids over the years dealing with abuse, bullying, and mental problem, they attended to think of a way for people to hear them cry out for help. But in this case LaDue didn 't cry out he wanted fame and by shooting or blowing up a school would, probably, he thought, would get him that fame. He would get the distance to seek fame and by killing people that were his answer. For other people it 's different and some of them don 't do it for the fame and glory they do it so people can hear their cries. What LaDue did was wrong and stupid of him how he was doing this.
This consequently causes their peers to believe that these people should not be given the trust to vote on such widespread, controversial issues. Now, although the people with these concerns make a valid and alarming point they fail to understand that voting not only helps instill a sense of responsibility within prior-felons lives but it also helps with their rehabilitation process as well, targeting the psychological aspect of helping these men and women succeed. Christopher Uggen, professor of sociology and law at the university of Minnesota asserts in the article “Why should felons vote” that “ if those who argue that people with felony convictions shouldn 't be allowed to vote because they are untrustworthy in character . . . should we exclude admitted racists or, taking that argument even further, perhaps people who
Most of the time the phrase “check your privilege” is used negatively. When used in this way it often intimidates people, and they feel the need to defend themselves. We can always find a reason to justify hostility but at the end of the day it 's still just that: hostility. And hostile, overused quotes like "check your privilege" doesn’t educate people, they just alienate them and turn them on the defensive. As James Baldwin said, “It is true that two wrongs don 't make a right, as we love to point out to the people we have wronged.
I asked myself the same question twenty years ago because I hated grade school. I also asked God, why I was born, and sent to school with a bunch of mean children. Like Zimmer, I recall getting into small fights with other girls. I was not a tormenter, but a victim of bullying. Due to my shy behavior, I easily attracted bullies to abuse me.
