To continue, the other Wes Moore 's life was packed with drama. The drug and crime-induced life that he lived was thrilling, yet not in the way most teens want to relive. His life gave insight into the consequences of drugs and serious premarital relationships. His life was more interesting to read about in my own opinion yet it the other Wes Moore is far from any role model figure of mine. I did enjoy the other Wes ' blunt way of speech like in the quote, “Your father wasn’t there because he couldn’t be, my father wasn’t there because he chose not to be.

The book I’ve been reading is A Child Called “It,” by Dave Pelzer. Now that I’m further in this story, that’s based on a true story, it gives more detail what Dave was put through and it makes me sad just reading it. Words can’t describe the times he was put through and he will always have those horrid memories. Nothing will change the way he will think about his father and mother, neither of them cared for him, even though his father acted like he did. But he managed never to do anything about what was happening to his son.
He believed that if a man is educated he will be able to follow the new and judge the best way to vote. Jefferson thought that if he could provide equal education, children would understand to “to work out their own greatest happiness, by showing them that it does not depend on the condition of life in which chance has placed them, but is always the result of a good conscience, good health, occupation, and freedom in all just pursuits.” –Thomas Jefferson 5. How did Horace Mann impact the development of public education in the United States? Horace Mann, was the gentlemen to start the common school movement. This movement was believed that common schooling would benefit all.
After the Great Rebirth technology was destroyed. They had no electricity, no light, nothing but candles and paper. In this primitive, collectivist society Equality feels guilty for breaking the laws but at the end, he realize there is no reason for him to feel guilty. In the first and second chapter, it started off “It is a sin to write this” (1; ch.1). Equality always knew he was an unusual and odd boy to begin with.
None of them knew what was going on. They can’t be blamed for his actions. They can be blamed for hurting him and transforming him into what most people will refer to him as; a monster. He wanted peace but never found it with everything he did. However the “family” he created did receive the freedom they deserved many years ago.
Washington believed in working simple labor jobs and starting from the bottom and progressing up in order to gain the respect necessary to achieve racial equality, Du Bois believed in not submitting to lesser occupations and demanding racial equality. Washington says that the key to prosperity is through learning to dignify common labor. Whereas Du Bois states that “Becoming a gospel of work and money to such an extent as apparently almost completely overshadow the higher aims of life.” “Common Labor” is viewed by Washington as the only way to make progress toward a higher quality life, however, Du Bois views “common labor” as a social setback. Washington’s views can be summed up, almost completely, in the following quote “It is at the bottom of life we must begin, not the top.” Du Bois believes that Washington exhibits an old attitude of submission. Whereas Washington sees starting from the bottom as necessary and beneficial Du Bois sees it as submissive and harmful towards the progression of equality.
Slightly similar to Victor’s upbringing, there is no emotional supplement to aid in the creature's development. Having no one to care for him, the creature goes on a murderous rampage in spite of his absent creator. Parallel to Victor’s parents, he understands his responsibilities, “and did I not as his maker, owe him, all the portion of happiness that it was in my power to bestow?" (Shelley 146). However, he does not follow through.
Nevertheless, if he did not follow the rules, he would simply be looked down upon by his peers. This divulges the true internal conflict of not just a man, but a person not using their voice and being imprisoned by their troubles for life by following the rules of society. The silent one is not living, but merely existing. Moreover, considering the conflict, Ethan Frome only existed throughout his life. He never of his troubles to anyone.
“Harrison Bergeron” uses multiple perspectives to highlight the costs of equality paralleled in today’s society. Contrasts between the reader’s perspective and the character’s perspective about inequality show cost of equality in ”Harrison Bergeron.” In the future United States shown in the story, equality is valued above all else, and the society has taught citizens that being better or worse than another is something bad. When Hazel says to her handicapped husband, “Go on and rest the bag for a little while," … "I don't care if you're not equal to me for a while." ( Vonnegut Jr 51) it makes the differing perspectives between the reader and the characters immediately
