On the 18th day at sea, they finally heard the sound of a plane. They tried with all their strength to get the plane 's attention. The plane did not spot them, and they were crushed with disappointment. They next day, two more planes appeared, but once again disappeared without seeing them. Frustration peaked and Cherry, Whittaker, and DeAngelis once again decided to go on their own.
The students skipped their classes and didn’t do homework, they really didn’t care about school. Robert Billings did not care about school at all. He slept in class and always got bad grades. He was called the class loser. Next, Laurie is really the only one devoted to the Grapevine.
There were these people pushing around in different directions like a riot and through this hectic time I spent most of my time thinking. And the more I thought the lonelier I felt. I can’t, lie when I entered the plane to leave to Brussels, Belgium I was scared. For the first time ever I was all alone. The first day in Brussels I didn’t have enough money for the fancy hotels so I slept on a tandem sling at the airport with nothing but a shirt, shorts and my little brother’s batman blanket.
Also, the fact that they’re stranded and left alone caused them enough anger and frustration. The island didn’t provide much. So the boys had to learn how to make do with what they could. Going from getting everything handed to them to trying to survive on their own on a stranded island was a huge change. They were scared and alone and had no adults to guide them.
It is not only children who are racist towards him it is the adults as well. “On the first day of class, you had difficulty with his name. You wanted to call him Wind insisting that wolf somehow must be his middle name.” (Lake 77). This is showing some racism in the teacher because, any other teacher would’ve worked harder to learn his name but, she didn’t. “He said that he doesn’t have any friends at school because they make fun of his long hair.” (Lake 78).
Tomorrow would be the last he would wait, counting down from since a few months ago Brooks had been tired with his life in Cold Bay. He had never liked his “neighbors”, which lived all the way across the airport from him. Acting just as cold as the weather, they shied away from him just because of his parents’ disrespect to the community. By the time he stopped pondering, the water was all gone, whisked away into the atmosphere, never to be seen again by his eyes. He took the pot around poured what little was left.
Honestly, being here made me wish a thousand times that I would’ve focused on being someone inspiring to young and older generations a long time ago. Before coming to Job Corps, I had days when I was so depressed, I just stop doing what was right and from that point on, the street was the only I saw myself. The family was my enemy, friends were no longer there, at least the ones I thought I had. I didn’t want to talk to anyone because I had nothing positive to say. I can honestly say my biggest mistake I made as youngster, was me giving up on school.
One instance of this theme is the clashing of the two cultures. The Ibo people did not like the change that was happening around them with Okonkwo strangling his son for being around the Christians. One example that change should happen is when Nwoye saw two twins being thrown into pots and buried in the forest. To the reader this is not something that is ethically right. In addition, another sign that change should happen is when the reader finds that the Oracle gave the order that had Ikemefuna killed.
It is rather strange that the dreadful nazis ' genocide is present in the world today. Their hate towards Jews for the world 's problems today is essentially just naive and treating us like we are animals. Arriving here at Auschwitz you get tattoos with several number 's. This made me lose my originality and I became frustrated whereas I have adored my name Edith my entire life. You become a number and that is not tolerable.
It was time. Mom was bawling her eyes out and dad was trying to keep a straight face. I was a nervous wreck, shaking as I boarded the aircraft. The hardest goodbye yet. I wasn’t expecting to cry when the closed the hatch to the plane, but I shed a few tears.
