Abigail believed that Proctor actually loved her and she waited every night for him. She was brainwashed to think he would leave his wife for her. The witchcraft accusation came from the beginning of the story when Abigail and the girls were dancing naked in the woods and chanting. She made false accusations that people in the village were worshipping the devil to cover what she had done. Many lives were taken but Abigail had no empathy for anyone who was hanged.
Forgiveness Between Elizabeth and John Forgiveness. A word like forgiveness can solve any problem and give people a second chance.

Abigail is accusing Mary Warren of being a witch just to keep all the attention off of her: “Mary, please don’t hurt me” (Abigail)! Now that the truth has been released Abigail is really worried that everything will be ruined if it is: “Mr.Danforth, he is lying” (Abigail)! I believe these sentences are my favorite from the story because things are heating up even more since the truth about the affair has been released in the court. Abigail Williams, a dynamic character, changes by the end of the play from bad to worse: Hathorne is astonished by Abigail’s disappearance and taking parris money to get away: “she have robbed you” (Hathorne)? Danforth now stating to know of Abigail’s disappearance doesn’t really seem to care: ‘My daughter tells me how she heard them speaking of ships l last week, and tonight i discover my- my strongbox is broke into” (Parris).

Miranda Lucy’s biological mother fell into insanity when Lucy was born due to a curse that runs through Lucy’s family that only her and her foster parents know about. The curse was put on the Scarborough women long ago and was documented in a letter as well as a diary of Lucy’s mothers.

Mr. Putnam later says “When Reverend Hale comes; you will proceed to look for signs of witchcraft here.” (Miller, 152) As Arthur Miller reminded you, you can see jealousy is one of the worst emotions out there bringing the worst out of people?
Alexie’s major themes in his stories are big and tough to talk about but he uses wit to speak to all people. The problems that Alexie talks about can span from racial inequality to lack of options and opportunities in the Native American community. There are many reasons as to why an author would choose to use comedic aspects in his or hers writing. One major reason is it keeps the mood light, and even as the story/poem gets heavy, there is a lightness to it. Another reason is humor can often heal old wounds.
For example, Parton says,” And I 'll spend forever just proving that fact from here to the moon and back”(Parton, Dolly, co protagonist. Joyful Noise, Warner Bros., 2012). She was stating that she would spend eternity proving to him how much she loves him, and that she would go as far as the moon and back to prove it. This quote clearly shows us an example of how she describes love. She describes it as going above and beyond for the other person no matter what, especially on showing them how much one loves them.
“Cinderella, Inc.” by Sue and Allen Gallehugh has a great relation with the 21st Century America society. It is common today’s days that people, in especial the younger one are not opened to new opportunities or to know others more deeply. Cinderella judged her new stepmother and stepsisters even before to take the time and see if they were good persons and may be just judge them by the stereotype that all stepmothers are bad and cruel. At the same time, she tried to play the role of a victim which made her fall in depression and made severe her situation by eating too much and seating in a corner to cry out how unfortunate she was. Sadly, that is a reality in our society and everyone should be aware of it, and try to help those people that
