Analytical Option 2: Holden’s Conversation with Sunny Holden Caulfield finds himself in many difficult situations in The Catcher in the Rye by J.D. Salligner, situations that a sixteen-year old normally wouldn't find themselves in. After Holden is kicked out of Pencey, he fend for himself in New York to keep the news from his parents. Holden rents a room at the Edmont Hotel for a few nights and encounters a man named Maurice, a pimp, in the elevator. At this time, Holden is “so depressed I can’t even think” (102), he says the decision is against all his “principles” (102), but in a state of loneliness, drunkenness, and teenage horniness, Holden agrees to purchase a prostitute for a quick “throw”. A woman named Sunny knocks on Holden’s door,
Education is defined in the Benokraitis’ Soc 3, Third Ed. textbook as, “A social institution that transmits attitudes, knowledge, beliefs, values, norms, and skills to its members through formal systematic training.” Yet despite the many essential benefits that education offers, “only 34% of Americans have a lot of confidence in our public schools.”
Chris McCandless was in his early 20’s, he was the kind of that guy that wanted to learn and experience life without all of the material things. He wanted to be independent from his parents and friends so Chris did something that would be insane for most of us humans but to him, it wasn’t. He went into the wild of Alaska for months, in fact, McCandless even thought he could make it out alive at the end of his journey. As a matter of fact, he was known as being a risk taker and enjoyed being out and about in the nature side of the world. Many would believe that Chris McCandless went into the wild to purposely kill himself; however, I myself believe that McCandless did not do it purposely.
Twelfth Night Research Project: The Letter Trick Part One: Suzanne Penuel described a great underlying influence of Shakespeare’s text, Twelfth Night by drawing multiple connections between various conversation and overlapping themes in her essay, “Missing Fathers: Twelfth Night and the Reformation of Mourning.” Many implications tied to the role of fatherhood were explored including rank (social status), procreation and a necessity for a man to be included for life to be physically reproduced, morality and its biological relationship to genetic implications of such a trait to be inherited, maturing and developing relationally (both when and how), the connection between paternal figures in a familial aspect and religious (specifically in regards to mournig), and the influence on various relationships as a father’s role (or absence) is a determining factor of developing a worldview. The main argument was Shakespeare’s
As Washington D.C.’s second oldest town, Tenleytown has grown from a country village to a city neighborhood. Much of this transition involved the gathering of the Tenleytown community to fight crises or advocate for their neighborhood. Tenleytown citizens have fought against the relocation of the black Reno City community, fought for the rightful name of their Metro station, and fought against business and residential real estate development. Tenleytown residents have a shared history that has created a sense of place within their community, because they are willing to take action anytime Tenleytown or the community is threatened.
Longtown, Ohio is one of the only places where races didn’t matter two centuries ago. Interracial marriages were happening here without argument or trouble. This system of liberty and freedom of the races was founded by a freed slave from Virginia named James Clemens, who later became a rich farmer, but this system is close to being abolished because of the decrease of the original Longtown population. Their places are being taken by whites and they are also purchasing their property. This will eventually move out the people of Longtown and be a city of whites. Many years after Clemen’s death, his great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great great-grandson wants to and believes he can save Longtown from this fate despite his blue eyes and being lightskinned.
No matter how hard the government tried to put an end to the concerns that were rising about Rocky Flats, the Arvada community exposed the governments lies about how there was “no critical danger.” People such as Dr. Edward Martell and Dr. Carl Jonson put out the truth about Rocky Flats and the lethal radiation levels that people in the Arvada community have been exposed to. Soon after, thousands of protestors were ready to fight against the government and its secrets. Iversen also took action against the government by writing this story on Rocky Flats. She became a voice for the people who put their life on the line while working at Rocky Flats.
I am writing to express my concern regarding the visible amount of trash in our neighborhood. The surroundings of Dentonia Park and all the way to the Golf Club are filled with pieces of paper, cans, broken toys, packages and all the sort of unwanted objects on the grass, ruining the pleasant experience of walking in the park with the children.
Longtown Ohio has had races mix freely for the past 200 years. Now people just see someone with a different skin color and think only negatives toward that person. Even if we have freedom of speech and press, that doesn’t mean we can talk about others because of how they look. The world should be free to all, not just a certain skin color. We should be able to interact or go through marriage with other skin colors. Ohio has had interracial marriages for almost two centuries. In the article “Ohio holds rare history: Races mix freely for nearly 200 years”, Keiser said,” We were the usual Longtown family. We all looked different, and were taught that color didn’t matter … As long as I have anything to do with it, Longtown won’t die.” If the whole
It took just forty five days for United States citizens to acquiesce their rights to freedom and privacy for the sake of safety following the events of September 11, 2001. Forty five days is how long it took the United States Congress to pass a law that gave up the very concept of liberty upon which this country is founded. The morning sky was a brilliant shade of blue with not a cloud in sight in New York on that fateful day of September. That all changed at 8:45 AM when a Boeing 767 jet plane tore into the north tower of the World Trade Center. Eighteen minutes later, a second Boeing 767 bit into the sixtieth floor of the south tower. Screams and sirens pierced the air; thick, black smoke and flying debris ruined the perfectly clear
Sam Brownback, the 46th Governor of Kansas, has one goal in mind and that is to make Kansas the best place for families to grow. However, as of now, Brownback is not able to achieve his goal because he had caused a massive state debt due to cutting taxes. These controversial actions can put Kansas in a dark hole. Brownback was elected again by the Kansas citizens in 2014. Sam Brownback should not have been elected again as the Governor of Kansas because he is cutting money for public schooling, he is increasing the tax rate on the lower class and middle class to make up for his debt, and increasing taxes are causing Kansans to flee.
If I had the opportunity to share a meal with any figure from American history, I would choose Dr. Mary Edwards Walker, the only female recipient of the Congressional Medal of Honor and one of the first feminists and dress reformists. One of the reasons I admire Dr. Walker is her ability to fight through prejudice. Dr. Walker lived and worked during the Civil War. She was denied a place as a doctor for the army because of her gender. After three years of volunteer work, she was given a position as a civilian contract surgeon for the Union. Even when so many people told her that she wasn’t going to be able to use her medical knowledge for its intended purposes, she never backed down, all well staying true to who she was. There were many
It was reported by Kyle’s parents that he is almost completely unintelligible. Kyle’s mother reports that she believes he is not on the same communication level as his peers and she believes he is a late talker. Kyle’s pediatrician told his parents to wait another year before taking action. It would be beneficial for the clinician to gather more information from Kyle’s parents. Additional information that would be beneficial would include: when did Kyle first begin speaking, who is most able to understand Kyle, with whom does Kyle prefer to interact, on what level does his receptive and expressive communication fall, how well does Kyle play with his parents and peers, is Kyle able to engage in joint attention, and is he able to engage
Have you ever received an invitation to show up for an event which you did not want to attend? Did the nudging feeling of a guilty conscience and obligation eventually prevail and so the next thing you know you find yourself lapping up a postage and mailing out your yes answer? On the day of the event, you still don 't want to go, but you already said you would so now it 's a matter of respect and responsibility. Ultimately, you decide to change your attitude since you have taken the time to shower, get dressed, and throw on some smell good. You determine that after going through all of the trouble to meet an obligation, you may as well do the best you can to have a swell time while you are in there. I feel as though this is the same challenge that heroes who are called to adventure face. In Disney’s 2015 movie Cinderella, she accepts an invitation to commit acts of righteousness, out of duty, not desire. Joseph Campbell, author of
