It was the evening of Friday, September 20 in 2002, and Mrs. Smith had just arrived at Munson Stadium to help set up the Booster Club booth, as she was a sponsor, when she received a call from her husband. He wanted to know if he should go pick up their pizza at Domino’s now, or wait until Mrs. Smith was done with her shift at the booth. After talking through their options, they decided that he could pick it up around 7:15, which was right before the big Homecoming game would begin. Mrs. Smith finished making her way to the booth, after saying goodbye to her husband, and she was delighted to find it had almost been completely set up. But, the other sponsors were having trouble figuring out a way to display the ear warmers that they were planning
Every Halloween, my cousins and I get together late that night and egg people houses. Well last year, we decided to go to the same neighborhood and egg houses again. Little did we know that, the people that stayed on the corner of that neighborhood was patiently waiting on us. Soon as we egged their house, they let their pit-bull out on us. He chased us, and I’m jumping on everybody cars and trash cans outside.
The firefighters were like an extra dad who would look out for me. They encouraged me to be the person I could be. If it were not for them and my parents I would not be the person I am today because they shaped me to the person I am today. If my parents weren’t on the fire department, I don’t think I would be where I am today. The fire department has taught many life lessons like you have to work for what you want and life isn’t always easy but You find a way to get through
The quote shows that even though she did not want to let go of Tom, she still had to for the sake of the rest of the family. Keeping him would jeopardize the hard work that they have achieved this whole journey and cause the people to hunt for Tom. Ma truly cherished Tom, but he was just going to be trouble for the rest of the Joads. Letting go of Tom benefits both Tom and the family because Tom sets off onto a new path that Casy left him. Although Tom is part of the Joads, Ma feels that him leaving will benefit the majority of the Joad
They have different ways of doing what they want to obtain their dreams. However, their dreams are very similar to each other’s. Walter wants to make his life and his family’s life better while Beneatha wants to make everyone’s lives better. It is just getting to their dreams overlap each other’s and cause tension between the siblings that make it a challenge during their everyday lives. This could also show a good example on what could happen to any siblings when one gets more than the other or if they want to do the same thing and the family are not able to give it to both or
In winsel’s speech he tills about how “neutrality helps the oppressor never the victim” silence encourages the tormentor never the tormented .wiesel keeps trying to repeat this speech his ideas because he does not want it to happen again. That he has lived to till everybody his story so that our nation’s history does not repeat.so we know what to do next time it happens. We will stand for the tormented and fight the tormentor. Wiesel is trying to relay this message to so we will do it because as he sated himself in his speech “if we forget them they will die a second time”. Which means that if we forget what happened during world war two and all the holocaust survivors and all they went through and what happened in that camp all the death .in some camps the atrocities that they did to get further in the war.so he wants us to remember the pain the death and the suffering that
He possibly wants to make sure there is going to be no harsh feelings. In response to this the vizier says, "But she refuses and insists on being with you tonight." This is his way of saying that his daughter made the decision to do this and he cannot stop her, even though he has tried. This shows even further that he is simply a parent trying to help his child, although his daughter is certainly not making that easy. Once he has news of the king's acceptance he goes to his daughter and says, "May God not deprive me of you."
This anger is from the grudge she’s holding against her father which causes her to want to hide from her father. She wants to rid the memory of her father because she is “sick / of history dragging behind [her]” which goes back to the title of the poem, “Go Forget Your Father” (45). This shows that the speaker prefers to go back to her old morals and not hold a grudge against her father. To end the poem, Che presents the reader with another transition back to a softer tone. She wants to love her father again and let go of the grudge; to do this, the speaker and her father has to “show each other who [they] used to be” (66-67).
The author likely included this quote to show that it is a natural instinct not to want change, but it must happen anyway. Although the past may still be missed, forward movement is necessary. The author uses personification to show that even though forward movement may seem hard to accomplish it does eventually get better. After Krolewski moves and settles in she still feels the pain of her past. She says, “ Time heals everything,” (Krolewski 25).
Jackson uses ritual once again by showing that the townspeople get together at the same time and place every single year. They always meet at Central Square and always on June Twenty-Seventh. At the peak of the summer, just when the crops are about to start growing, someone is murdered as an offering so that the crops grow abundant. The timing is important to this ritual because it makes the villagers believe in the lottery even that much more. For example, if the lottery was performed in winter, they may not be able to see a correlation to the sacrifice and to the plentiful
