In “Making Sarah Cry” the bullies judge Sarah and the main character because they look and act different. In the poem it says .”And so he gladly joined their fun Of making Sarah cry But somewhere deep within his heart, He just never knew why” this is showing that he knew that he didn’t know why he was doing it and that he could stop any day but he didn’t. Another piece of evidence is that “The funny faces that she made And the way she’d stomp her feet Whenever they mocked the way she walked Or stutter when she’d speak” This is where he is pointing out when she would do things or naming everything she would do that would trigger the bullying. This is significant because he is thinking and he knows that he does it for no reason. Even though making fun of sarah was funny but he had some doubts to begin with.
This shows courage because he made her life horrible and was very mean to her by trying to make her cry, but she still very nicely stood up to him. That is why this book shows courage. Although both stories have many things in common, they both also have many of things that they have that are differences between them. For instance In Making Sarah Cry she did nothing about getting bullied and she just kept (stupidly) coming outside. However, In don’t give up the fight she told her best friend and then her and her best friend told the principal.
Emily insists that her mother not wake her the next morning for school, even though she has midterms, since the atomic bomb will destroy everyone soon anyway, making midterms irrelevant. Once Emily leaves, the narrator admits her concern that Emily actually has such a pessimistic outlook. To close, the narrator insists that Emily will be okay, and that she will not come into school to talk further. She wants the school figure to "let her be" (12). The narrator claims she can never "total it all," all of Emily's pain from childhood, and she mourns that Emily has had to keep too much inside of herself.
Quashallia Potter English 1101 May 31, 2015 A Good Man Is Hard To Find In the story, A Good Man Is Hard to Find, Flannery O ' Conner introduces many characters that have many different personalities. The one character that really caught my attention was the unnamed grandmother. She was one of the key individuals that manipulated, lied, and deceived many people. The grandmother also judged the lack of goodness in people and never looked at herself and inspected her on mistakes. Throughout the story, the meaning behind the grandmother’s manipulation was to have her way and get what she wanted from the different characters; for example, in the beginning of the story the grandmother did not want to go Florida on a family vacation
Social isolation can lead to feelings of loneliness, fear of others, or negative self esteem. Lack of consistent human contact can also cause conflict with the (peripheral) friends the socially isolated person may occasionally talk to or cause problems with family members. Isolation is often seen to bring out the worst out an individual, however in Anne Frank’s case, it brought about the best out of her character since she had all the time in the world to reproduce her flair for writing in the emotional confused situation she was in. Anne’s isolation contributed to the development of her mind and spirit as she began to question, ponder and reflect at the never-ending ordeal she had to deal with. Her isolation gave her time to keep her mind off the constant fear and danger that they were surrounded with, and thus it clearly reflected on her writing as she became determined and hopeful that things would get better sooner or
To make the story interesting, the author creates a conflict between two different communities by stating, “That’s right- run, boy, and tell that foreign girl her letters are not welcomed here or you will be hurt by me and my friends” (Clements) (136).

Near the end of the story, the author employs a literary device, such as imagery, by saying, “She saw the field through Sadeed’s eyes; it wasn’t flat and boring, but beautiful” (Clements) (183). From this sentence, the author provides imagery for the reader to feel heartwarming, heartbreaking, and interested.

In Asch’s study of conformity, he shockingly found that many people will give the wrong answer to an obvious question if everyone else gives that answer before them. This can be linked to teens bullying someone despite their conscience telling them otherwise because all of their friends are doing it. Robbins highlights Whitney’s own experiences with being afraid to not do what her friends are doing, such as bully people. Since Asch’s study, scientists have delved deeper into the study of why this occurs, and Berns discovered a link between physiological experiences of fear and non-conformity.

Does it get better? ...” (Tessier,
Words and phrases have also been used to distinct groups of people. Negative words can have long-lasting consequences that spread far beyond the person who is being bullied. An anonymous once quoted, “Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words can never hurt me,” but words do hurt. Words hurt adults as well as children. Many times children or teens do remember negative words or remarks, especially from important family members or friends and how those words seriously disturbed their self-esteem throughout life.
