For instance, when Betty had awakened, Abigail explained to her that she has told her uncle Parris everything that had happened the night in the woods. On the other hand, Betty turns around and exclaims, did you tell him that, “you drank blood,” because the night they were caught in the woods Tituba had told Abigail that if she drinks chicken blood it will kill Goody Proctor (Miller, 1136). Abigail drank the blood because she was told that it would kill Goody Proctor and wanting someone to die is a wrong thing to do.

On this day in 1978, Peoples Temple founder Jim Jones leads hundreds of his followers in a mass murder-suicide at their agricultural commune in a remote part of the South American nation of Guyana. Many of Jones’ followers willingly ingested a poison-laced punch while others were forced to do so at gunpoint. The final death toll at Jonestown that day was 909; a third of those who perished were children. Jim Jones was a charismatic churchman who established the Peoples Temple, a Christian sect, in Indianapolis in the 1950s. He preached against racism, and his integrated congregation attracted many African Americans.

Media coverage is spouting that Haiti is a country of “violence”, “AIDS ridden” and ran by “blood”, stating that all believe in the religion of voodoo, and that creatures like mermaids and zombies are alive and among them (Potter, p. 224). In reality, Haiti is 33rd when it comes to being infected by AIDS (CIA Factbook) when a country like Zimbabwe is 4th (CIA Factbook) and is estimated that 2500 a week are dying due to this (Maclean, p. 513). At such a high placing for AIDS, there is not as much media viewing Zimbabwe under a telescope as it seems they are doing to Haiti. When introducing the violence factor, a large degree of it was brought to hand by other countries using Haiti for its own personal gain.
