Similarly, Raphaela also appreciate Ruth’s welcome to the school. Being the “new kid” is not easy for anyone, especially at a school with dictatorship. However, Ruth provided Raphaela a place where she could feel comfortable. Despite her appreciation, Raphaela often compares herself to Ruth according to the bravery level. She continues to feel out of place until she fully adjusted the new environment by

Sylvia does not want Miss Moore to believe she is right and her teachings are effective. As for Sammy, his stubbornness is shown when he quits his job. Quitting his job was a spontaneous decision he made to protect his ego. Lengel calls out “you don 't want to do this” but Sammy keeps walking (Updike 5). Sammy’s stubbornness to admit he’s wrong can be interpreted by the quotation: “It 's true, I don 't.
The adults in John and Lorraine’s life have positive and negative relationships that strongly impact their lives.

They differ in how he or she actually got picked and how they got killed. “The Lottery” and The Hunger Games both have similarities and differences. Both stories show the will to survive, whether it is the town or the Districts they just want to survive the drawing so that they are able to see their family again. The stories differ in the way of how they draw to see who “wins” the lottery or gets picked to go in and play The Hunger Games. When talking about hope and fear, everyone has both, but it is
My last reason why I believe that the INFP personality accurately descirbes me, is because of how it describes me when I 'm around my friends. The overview says that, "While they may be percieved as calm, reserved, or even shy, INFPs have an inner flame and passion that can truly shine...when they find like-minded people to spend their time with, the harmony they feel will be a fountain of joy and inspiration," (16personalities). This hits my personality spot on when it comes to me choosing and spending time with my friends. Due to my introverted nature (I), I don 't make friends with everyone I meet, and I can 't always initiate a conversation when I want to. In fact, I 'm not much of a people person.
As mentioned in the story Old Man Warren remarks, “There’s always been a lottery”(Jackson4), interpreting that it should be kept that way just because it has for years, without seeing how cruel every person attending the lottery are being. The prize of the lottery is an example of situational irony. Situational irony is when the readers have an idea of what will happen, but instead it turns out to be the total opposite. The readers expected a positive outcome, but the prize ended up being unbelievable; The winner of the lottery dies. The idea that a small town would make such an event an annual tradition shows the depths to which superstition takes humanity.
Those who do see the child are more often overcome with anger and despair when seeing this poor child. Even though they realize that the child’s suffering is wrong they also acknowledge that this treatment is necessary for everyone to be happy in their daily lives. Although they care for the child they still do what is right for the majority and act unselfishly by not making changes. It would be selfish to act upon one 's feeling of care for this child. Risking the happiness of everyone else only for the chance of happiness for one would be absurd.
Old Man Warner, the oldest man in the town, says in the story, “Pack of crazy fools,” he said. ‘Listening to the young folks, nothings good enough for them. Next thing you know, they’ll be wanting to go back to living in caves, nobody work anymore, live that way for a while. Used to be a saying about ‘Lottery in June, corn be heavy soon.’ First thing you know, we’d all eating stewed chicken weed and acorns. There’s always been a lottery.” Was it possible this was a tradition used to sacrifice someone, to ensure a great harvest?
Are people Truly pure-hearted? Some would say yes, some would say no, today is a no, people are not truly good at heart, and here is why people are not truly good-hearted An example of this would be in the Diary of Anne frank, Anne's father, Mr.Frank, stated she puts him to shame, because when no one else believed she still did, but if you have read the diary of Anne Frank having a positive attitude towards life does not get you through every situation, Anne’s positive attitude got her far, but she eventually had to meet her fate. This ties into the real world, showing that just because you work hard and are always positive doesn't mean you will be fine and that being positive all the time can get you into very serious situations.
Instead of discipline their kids they bribe them with toys or treats. People believe this parenting style is “too soft” they are usually are controlled by the kids. Some permissive parents don’t want to upset there kids so they let them do as they please, others ae more like friends with their kids and they don’t want to lose that relationship so they don’t discipline or try to control them. If you take them to a store and they ask for anything they will get it and if their mom or dad says not at first the kid will throw a fit till they say yes or they will grab what they want. Children with permissive parents lack guidance, Self-control and exhibit egocentric
