Therefore, I am not surprised that many educational institutions have embraced the concept of a time capsule. However, this creates a problem: How can singular items be chosen to represent multitudes of ideas, creations, and people. The only logical conclusion to this dilemma is to allow those being represented to choose an example that they feel best represents the majority, which in this case would be the entire class....

While he did not experience apartheid violence, he is a child of rape performed under the regime. His body is a literal figure of violence. When Mikey discovers his history, he recognizes that “he can no longer think of the future without confronting his past” (Dangor 131). Rather than attempting to reconcile the two, Mikey is influenced by his golden rule “look to the future, always” and decided like Marion’s parents, to annihilate his past (Dangor 131)....

- A Bitter Sweet Ending After reading the poem "Is It Possible", by Thomas Wyatt, it was obvious that the narrator is revisiting his desire to love, and where it begun and ended. Love is a difficult thing to express in any given language, and it's easy to witness such with the author's message. In reading the poem it is near impossible to convey the paradoxical pain and pleasure expressed by the narrator. The speaker, like most people, is very confused in one of his early relationships, and had a hard time sorting his emotions concerning his break-up.... [tags: Poetry]

Yet we never stopped struggling to reach out for the ultimate truth.... [tags: Definition True Truth Philosophy Essays]
