He states “I hope you will believe that my delay in answering your letter could proceed only from my unwillingness to destroy any hope….”. Johnsons begins this letter using emotion tactics because he knows that it will be hard for the mother to accept the fact that he is refusing her request. By beginning the letter in such a manner he is not pampering her for the rest of the letter but also letting her down softly as possible. Oppose to accusing her of being wrong for having this feeling and attempting to change her son’s fate, Johnson defines hope as being “a pleasure immoderately enjoyed” and as an “expectations improperly

Throughout the beginning of the short story, Antigone shows herself as a stubborn intuitive person towards the separate characters. First, Antigone does not fear King Creon at any point; Antigone only worries about her brother Polyneices. Proud, and strong, Antigone says, “Creon is not strong enough to stand in my way”. (Sophocles, Act 1). Determination basically describes Antigone as she will not let Creon stand in her way as she will bury her brother, Polyneices, even if Creon tries to stop her from doing so.

Despite of being right in my accusations of her sister’s ingenuine behavior, every time I demand that my wife tries to see the true side of the story, she keeps quiet and avoids confrontation. As follows, I become extremely irritated and annoyed by her withdrawal from the conflict. According to the book, the person using the avoidance conflict style wishes the problem or conflict would go away by itself and appears uninterested in managing the conflict or in meeting the needs of the other person involved in the disagreement. As a positive side of her conflict management style in this particular situation by withdrawing she does not allow me gunny-sacking, that only leads to increasing tension, escalating emotions, and reducing listening effectiveness, as mentioned in the textbook. However, by not resolving this issue the tension in relationship with my spouse builds
She says she “wants time to function as a power wash”, and remove the memory of the ride from her mind before she enters her house. This stanza shows how distressed the narrator feels about the comment, proving that her method of coping is not viable, and that she cannot let go of the small instances of racism she experiences. Her attempts to ignore times when she is offended do not work, and in that regard, are little better than John Henryism. She still does not confront racism, which would allow her some closure on the matter, but rather than fight against
The consequence was, that he often failed in the field, and rarely against an enemy in station, as at Boston and York. He was incapable of fear, meeting personal dangers with the calmest unconcern.

I agreed with Victoria because I feel that no matter what a person does whether it be harming a family member or stealing you never should act with violence or hatred as it will not solve the issue. This is why I agreed with Victoria. 1. During the King Lear seminar a statement I disagreed with was when McKenzie argued that Ran was a poor adaptation and that it didn’t capture King Lear’s spirit.
During the American Revolution colonists came to change the tyranny that they were once ruled under. Women would believe that they were fighting for their freedom. They were then brainwashed into thinking that their stereotypical life was not bad, but helping win the war by staying at home and keeping quiet.
(STEWE-2) Najmah is again unable to open up to Nusrat because of her trigger avoidance, “I try to smile at her, she is very kind, but I still do not want to be touched and I do not yet want to talk about my family” (Staples 206). Once again, her trigger avoidance acts as a tool for the author to explain that loss affects a person in a way that they will never be the same again. As Najmah does not wish to talk about her family, it shows that by avoiding any and all possible triggers she protects herself from pain. The suffering she experienced during and after the bombing explains her wish to never experience it ever again. But that in itself shows that their deaths control her actions and her feelings.
After Maleeka reads what her dad wrote about her and what he used to think about his daughter, she changes herself.(Page 48-49) She starts to avoid Charlese and other people. The tide turns to her, she is no more judged the same way as she was judged before.
