He is in complete awe of it, and can not decide to turn away from it or get a chance to understand it. Lawrence’s act of scaring it away could illustrate an attempt to draw closer to God. His inner feelings are fear of the snake “And truly I was afraid, I was most afraid, But even so, honoured still more.” His Garden was both honored and violated by the snake (Masterplots, 1931).

He rapes her by intimidating her with a snake, then callously says, "'Ain't it a God's wonder what a snake can do for love?'" (38). Buddy is so caught up in his feelings that he seems oblivious to how he is crushing her, and he is stunned when she rids herself of his love in the only way possible--by killing him.

He wants everyone to that, it's very easy to not be very discriminated by the way you look but the way your skin color. Mr. King is very descriptive of his words and his meaning for them. He can really make the world change if everyone really did follow. King's reason for the speech is because he is trying to make a difference, he is a very good well taught speaker and he speaks with so much enthusiasm and nothing could really stop him from anything he's
