The only agenda that could be feasibly present within the article is the idea to spread happiness and beauty, which is something that many articles that one may find on the internet would usually not do. Due to the kindness of what Miller is doing, the author heavily appreciates the aesthetic beauty of it, but those who may be against these Flower Flashes may say that it causes obstruction to normal commutes or that it causes a mess. In contrast to this potential argument, Miller and his team makes an effort to recycle all the flowers used in these arrangements as to not be a nuisance to the already raucous New York City.

In To Kill a Mockingbird, Mrs. Dubose has a bush of camellias in her yard. These flowers represent racism and prejudice towards black people in Macomb County. She refers to her flowers as “Snow-on-the-Mountain” that have white petals. The white petals show favoritism towards the white people in Maycomb County.
