However, Franky felt like she didn’t fit in the family and town she only felt like that because she couldn’t get in the club with all them girls, and her father really didn’t give Franky any attention. In spite of, Franky also struggle with her family because after her brother get married he goes back in the army, and she doesn't get to see him, and her father is never home all she need is some family loving. Meanwhile Bernice did felt unwanted and not needed, but the soldier felt lonely in the town. Not only, he was in the town for 3 days and nobody had talk to him because nobody didn’t know him. Furthermore, an outsider is a character that is set apart from the established cultural pattern.
Thirdly, in Everything I Never Told You, the Lee kids, and particularly Lydia, were not as popular as the other kids, they were not invited to go out on the weekends, they never to birthday parties, and they were not the recipients of after school phone calls to chat about the drama that happened at school that day. During lunch, “Lydia sits silent while others chatter,” because they are not really her friends (Ng, 15). Hurt by the fact that no one will be friends with her due to the fact that she is a different race, Lydia “sits for hours on the window seat on the landing” pretending she is on the phone with friends when, in reality, she is “rattling off assignments” to herself with no one on the other end of the call (Ng, 15-16). The malefactors of these discriminatory and xenophobic acts, whether they were
There is something in common between the old man’s conversation and school. It was boring, repetitive, monotonous. The boys never fully escaped school because it came back haunted them in the form of this man. They never reached the Pigeon House either. It was
Willa was very quiet at the beginning of the story but then tried to become friends with Wyatt at school. Wyatt was very antisocial and nobody would talk to him because they thought he was weird. For example the text explains, “Have a good -” Wrong. “Not interested,” he said. He swung his bag over his shoulder and walked away”(pg.34).
Sadly, Charles Wallace is considered the moronic outcast, due to the fact that he refuses to speak to his peers. He denied himself to talk to others, since the circular in school was exhaustively too effortless. Therefore others inferred that he was incapable of speaking to them, hence they refused interaction with Charles Wallace. While Calvin is reading Genesis to Charles Wallace, Meg along with Mrs. Murry, were discussing Charles Wallace’s differences while questioning if Charles Wallace’s differences were tangible or psychological. "Charles Wallace understands more than the rest of us doesn’t he?"
Before “A Summers Reading”, George believed that the town viewed him as a failure. The town considered him as a failure because George had little education and he dropped out of high school on impulse. For instance, the town did not have any hopes for George to read a hundred books. Since Mr. Cattanzara had trouble with his education in the past and it affecting his future, he advised George not to be like him. In other words, do not be the towns joke due to the lack of schooling.
They found school as something tedious and their mind did not grasp how beneficial school could be for them in the future. Brooks use of repetition in “We” throughout the entire poem followed by an enjambment leaves the reader in suspense. Brooks disrupts the flow of the verse ending each stanza with “We”. Placing that word there gives the poem a rhythm that makes it flow almost like a song. However, the “We” applied in this verse dramatizes the wasted life these young people are going to have because of one irrational decision.
Through the media, Injun Joe was portrayed as a barbaric savage. Being a fugitive, having only a sixth or seventh grade education, and not even being able to write or read made it easy to conclude that he was an uncivilized “other” that was not a member of our society. A society that requires civil behavior and literate skills in order to function properly. In this society that we live in today it is common to believe that one who cannot read or write has no literacy at all, but I have mixed feelings about that. On one hand, I agree that Injun Joe not being able to read or write makes him illiterate in our society, however, I still believe that there are other kinds of literacies on a broader spectrum that Joe might possess.
He doesn’t accept many things such are phonies and people not being like Allie, and these make him feel the way he does. Due to the fact Holden cannot make connections with people as they are not like Allie and as Holden thinks are phonies he is not able of having friends, what leads into him being lonely. When he started to face events that made him feel upset, for example being beaten up by Stradlader, he had nobody to talk to. “It was even depressing out in the street. You couldn’t even bear any cars any more.
North Korea lacks basic utilities to make modern human life impossible in most areas, “There is no medicine, there is no running water, there is no soap in hospitals,” (Ling 20:10). In North Korea they have no way of ensuring a healthy population, and they rely on countries like America to provide for them. Access to the small amount of modern amenities is completely based on someone’s position within the government. North Korea has not asked for aid even when they were in a massive famine, “I saw children dying under my hands when I was too late,” (Ling 20:31). Children in North Korea are dying from lack of food and the rest are stunted and deformed from malnutrition.
