In the article, “Shattered Lives” by Kristin Lewis, Dania faces many challenges. One challenge that she faced was that she was part of a war and had to leave all of the things she loved behind. On page 6 the author states “They faced a devastating choice: Stay and risk death, or leave everything behind…” Another piece of text evidence is “ In september, their choice became clear. They fled.” (6) Another challenge she had to face was that Dania had no education. The author clearly states on page 6 “Dania looked forward to going to school each day and took pride in the gold stars her teacher gave her for completing hr homework on time.” Some more proof for that challenge on page (7) is “by 2013, it had become too dangerous for most kids, including

Many years after Moby-Dick was first condemned, there are still modern occurrences of controversy. In 1996, a Texas public school district challenged Moby-Dick for violating its community ideals. This difficulty with the novel arose when “parents complained that the book went against family values,” so it was shunned from the classroom for a few months, although it was never actually banned (Jarvis 80). Although these values were never clearly defined, literary critics believe that a “controversial topic in Moby-Dick scholarship has been the novel’s homoeroticism,” or the underlying themes of same-sex desire and symbolic gender roles (Habich and Nowatzki 155). This theory can be observed in the relationship between Ishmael and Queequeg.
So now said child is in high school and believes he/she has 3 options; military, college or stay back and work. Every child in the ghetto must come to a decision in this but the thought process isn’t as simple as it would be for many.

To choose college is to choose a longstanding battle with debt because there are no resources available to pay for

In December 1965, some students in Des Moines, Iowa, decided to wear black armbands to school as a symbol to protest against American involvement in the Vietnam War and to show their anti-war sentiment. Knowing the plan of the students, the principals of the Des Moines school met and created a new policy which stated that students would be asked to take off their armbands, and refusal would result in a suspension.
