Young Wallace decided to try and protect the old man. He was doing fine for the first three or four men, but was eventually overwhelmed by the troops.

The climate at Valley Forge is horrible. The soldiers are constantly freezing. They have a choice between freezing cold, or smoke.

The soldiers get smoke in their lungs and it is horrible.
So she sacrificed her job to take care of her son, even though it was a risk because they needed the money. Also, in the book Zopa gets arrested by Captain Shek because the Captain assumed that Sun-jo was on the mountain illegally(which he was). All of the porters and Sherpas risked their jobs and tried to get Zopa out of the situation. Over a walkie, Josh states, “As soon as the porters and Sherpas herd about Zopa’s arrest, they all gathered around Shek’s headquarters to hold a silent vigil. Shek tried to disperse them, but they wouldn 't budge.”(175) The Sherpas and porters really care about Zopa and they were willing to sacrifice their important jobs to save him.

He ran into the cowboys and tricked them into thinking that they had set up an ambush to scare them away. He got back home, but his dad never came back. He came to the realization that they probably put him on a prison ship and that they would release him when the war was over. Him and his mother were left to run the tavern by themselves. This ws very accurate because, during the war most of the men went to fight, so the women and children had to do most of the work.

It ruins the offender’s life and does nothing to help them rehabilitate. They do not learn to do better when they are locked with thousands of other prisoners for the rest of their lives. They cannot recover without the hope of getting out of prison. They think there is no reason to even try. As Gail Garinger stated on his article Juveniles Don’t Deserve Life Sentences, adolescents sentenced to die in prisons “were told that they could never change and that no one cared what became of them.” He explains how these kids are “left without help or hope.” This means that juveniles who get sentenced to life in prison do not have the opportunity to educate themselves, rehabilitate, or enjoy life again.

In some cases, slaves feared the separation from their families, more than death itself. Being separated from your family, could happen in an instant, with no warning, and for no reason. Douglass explains this by saying “He was immediately chained and handcuffed; and thus, without a moment's warning, he was snatched away, and forever sundered, from his family and friends, by a hand more unrelenting than death.” (3.5), he is telling the reader that being separated from your family is the most tragic thing that could happen to anyone in life. But, Douglass was a little different, because once his mother died; he did not care for leaving. In the text it says, “The ties that ordinarily bind children to their homes were all suspended in my case.
This belief was also held by the captain and most of the crew which led to the destruction of the Titanic. Even after being warned countless times of icebergs by the Californian, Baldwin revealed that officers disregarded their warnings by ordering them to “shut up, shut up; keep out, I am talking to Cape Race; you are jamming my signals.” In addition, Fowler informed the public that only 53.4% of the passengers on the ship could have been saved if the lifeboats were completely filled up. The iceberg was a huge factor in the sinking of the Titanic; however, because the captain and crew did not pack enough resources for emergencies and disregarded many safety procedures and warnings, the iceberg was not the only cause of the horrible

It wasn’t long before a paralyzing fear took hold of the city. Families stopped visiting each other with the likelihood of getting sick, doctors wouldn’t take house calls or treat victims of the plague, and priests would go to visit the sick and refused to administer this last rights. There was no rational explanation for the sudden appearance and rapid death rates, so many came to believe that it was a divine punishment sent down by God. In fact, the late 14th century English cleric, William Langland, wrote “God is deaf nowadays and will not hear us. And for our guilt he grinds good men to dust,” in his epic poem “Piers Plowman.” Despite all this dread and turmoil that racked the entire continent, the plague eventually died down and was preceded by the Renaissance which gave life and vitality back to the people of
The destruction of the hotel caused the loss of many jobs and homes for people. They were self-centered enough to destroy the Curtis Hotel without noticing how it will impact people like Simon. The government destructed the Curtis Hotel, “... he can’t bend his mind around the fact that he has no bed, his mattress buried under such a load of brick.” (228). It caused Simon to be homeless and jobless. This replacement of the Hotel doesn’t impact just Simon but it also impacts other people like One-two and Dougan who also had to find new
