The Salem Witch Trials are a black mark on American history and all because teenage girls became hysterical and began making outlandish accusations; Arthur Miller’s The Crucible, written in the 20th century, is his account of the events of that time. The question has been asked: Could something similar to the Salem Witch debacle ever happen again? The answer is yes, something similar to what took place in The Crucible could and still happens in the United States today. The presidential election of 2016 is similar; accusations and allegations, whether true or not, are thrown everywhere and at everyone.
What is an actual hero? The word hero is similar to a metaphor, meaning it has many meaning depending on who you ask. Most of the time the answer has something to deal with a super hero, something nonfiction, or when it is fiction it is someone rich and famous. Although, no all the time does it mean that a person saved someone or someone had a dramatic imprint on the world, creating a life changing event. A hero can simply be someone who went through life, through difficult obstacles, never giving up, showing an example of bravery and loyalty.
I hunched over my desk, eyes scrutinizing the thorough biology notes, when our house phone rang. Immediately, a machine asked “Would you like to accept Carlos Carrillo’s phone call from the Lancaster County Prison?”.

As innocent children, we grow up with intentions of being just like our mommies and daddies. We dream that one day, we can wear the same powerful red cape, that we watch our parents wear with courage and bravery on a daily basis. Sadly, not every child is fortunate enough to have superheroes as parents; some children have villains as their mothers and fathers. When the walls of naivety begin to fade away and reality comes into play, certain children have to face the harsh reality that what should be their number one supporter(s) is actually their number one offender. In A Child Called It by David Pelzer, Pelzer learns how to survive abuse from his mother, and isolation from his entire family.
There is an old saying, “Hear no evil, see no evil” that can be applied in the case of sexually abused people and their own families. On the one hand, victims of sexual abuse are prone to repress their traumatic memories with a view to denying what has happened to them.

Both Gethin and Nick clearly have some secrets about their childhood that are quite painful for them.
Mass shootings plague the world to this day, claiming hundreds of lives in the deadly process. Some of the more infamous occurrences include the Columbine High School, Dawson College, and Sandy Hook shootings.

For each instance mentioned, prosecutors, defenders, or even the murderer attempt to blame video games as the motivation to kill, particularly stating games such as DOOM, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, and Grand Theft Auto. Before delving into their motivation, the Connecticut tragedy must first be understood.
Human Service Role Human services professionals play a major part in helping from every angle of child abuse. Everyone from the victim, to the perpetrator, and other members of the family need help. There are many local agencies that is in place to help the struggles of child abuse. “The wide range of activities in which a human service professional might engage within a child and family services agency, there is also a wide range of practice settings where the human service professional might work, the largest being a state’s child protective services (CPS) agency” (Martin, 2014, p.82).
A criminal is living with me, cooking me dinner, and caring for me; I was apprehensive. One of the most influential events in my life was when my mom went to jail. During the summer of 2010 in Colorado, she spent around eight months in jail. My parents informed me over a Sunday breakfast. My mom and I exchanged letters, because we never really had the chance to talk over phone.
