In The Lottery they killed people they knew; they had their families partake in it.
Foul language, which I won 't repeat. In fact, I’d rather not say anything at all. (29).

As I have stated already, the main reasons were that they [Klu-Klux-Klan] were killing and brutally murdering black politicians, or even, any random citizen who was either for the “Reconstruction” . The other reason I stated was that they brought to many problems to themselves, that the “Northern Neglect” did not feel like they should be responsible for that. Tens of thousands people who live here all blame the ‘Northern Neglect” for this cause that was once beautiful. If only they would hear my argument on why I believe in what we did to them was very horrible,we were killers. They are just holding a deaf ear, but we can come to conclusion that it was our fault for this act that was once supposed to be a way to make America a land of opportunities, but instead turned it to a land of
Since Grendel was born from evil he could never be happy which angered him when he heard all the people in Herot having a good time. Grendel was always sinning by murdering every night. In lines 1-2 it backs up my stating of Grendel being evil it says “A powerful monster, living down in the darkness, impatient.” Grendel was smart in many ways. One way Grendel was smart was because he knew when to strike. Grendel killed many of people undetected.
