Labels don't tell the truth about who people are. We have all heard gossip about someone and immediately jumped to conclusions about them. Because of this, we can miss out on friendships, connections, beneficial conversations and positive interactions. And yes, sometimes the hallway gossip can be true, but you shouldn't judge someone based on one mistake they made, you should get to know them first. Labels are created for everyone.
We have the power to make everyone feel included and feel like they fit in, yet we don’t. We use that power to degrade people and make them feel bad on the inside. If everyone just worked together and realized even though we are different on the outside we are still all the same on the inside. Every girl goes through that heart break, cry’s, eats, hates everyone, and everything. Every guy gets a little embarrassed about something stupid that slips out of their mouth.
Randy tells Ponyboy that all Bob wanted was for his parents to get him in trouble. Randy then dismisses the conversation about Bob by saying, “I don’t know why I’m telling you this. I couldn't tell anyone else.” (Hinton 116) This is invalidating the stereotype that Socs and Greasers have nothing in common, and should hate each other. Randy and Ponyboy in particular, considering that Ponyboy was there the night Randy’s best friend died. This matters because it is showing that Socs and Greasers might be able to understand each other better than people within their own group, although they are stereotyped to be complete
In the end, all of the decisions in the outsiders were made with good intentions in mind. Ponyboy ran away from the police in order to protect his best friend Johnny, Darry hit Ponyboy because he was trying to teach him a lesson, and Cherry felt bad for what she had done so she helped out the greasers by spying on the Socs. The situations in Tom Sawyer were choices itself made were wrong but then they wear also made for the wrong reasons. Like Roosevelt said: the best thing you can do is the right thing, but when you do not do the right thing, the next best thing is the wrong thing. And sometimes the wrong thing isn't so bad if you do it for the right reasons.
This unprovoked act of kindness from Boo is a brilliant way for Lee to bring a little more compassion to the story. While Mr. Arthur could have been irritable and annoyed that the children kept bothering him to leave the house, he instead reaches out in his own timid way, looking after Scout. Throughout the story, Boo also leaves little trinkets and artifacts in the tree near the Radley house for the kids to keep and enjoy. The children had done nothing for him, yet he still reached out and gave what he had out of no obligation whatsoever. Again, this is another display of what compassion is about- Arthur kept giving without ever expecting anything in return.
This fit perfectly with my experience I had with volunteering at The Denver Rescue Mission. In conclusion, doing this service learning taught me many different things. First, I should not go into any situation with a bad attitude because I do not know what the outcome will be. Second, when things turn bad, even for a little second, calm down the situation and try not to instigate anything. And lastly, volunteering and learning new things about other people’ lives has really mad me see how some people can get through anything.
Without realizing it, Jack was swayed by a civilization that he was not a part of anymore. The good half of Jack knew there was a certain taboo associated with killing. He knew his actions would never have been acceptable in the previous world, but the malevolent part of Jack argued that no one could hinder him. He could experience the thrill of killing without being punished by the authoritative figures of his past. Later in the book, Jack left behind all his morals and triumphantly killed a sow.... ... middle of paper ... ...e him over so he could successfully hunt a pig.
That is why I have taken the liberty to measure the pros and cons of a tremendous decision about to be made. In this presentation, you will find that I have given much thought into this choice. Just because I get more goods than bad or vice versa, does not mean I did not follow my heart, choosing the decision that will make me happy. Many may not agree with my choice, but I came to realize and thought to myself that ?You know what, that?s not my problem.? There may be consequences to life?s decisions, but we all can learn from mistakes, only mistakes, never regret.
Caesar disregards the comment by saying the man is dreamer thus ignoring the warning. This caution reoccurs several times during the course of the play, serving as a constant reminder of Caesar’s approaching demise. This was not the only warning Caesar had of his imminent doom, for on the night before his assassination Calpurnia, Caesars wife, has a dream. Fearing evil, she tried to convince Caesar that her dream was a warning for him not to go to the senate that day. Caesar, being Skeptical of his wife, calls for an animal sacrifice to predict the course of the day, the heart of the animal is nowhere to be found.
Because Jem didn't want to disappoint Atticus, he was forced to go back to the Radley place to retrieve his pants so that he wouldn't have to explain where he'd lost them. Although he knew it was dangerous and he was scared to go, Jem went to the Radley place because the courage to go there was easier to summon than the courage to face Atticus and tell him that Jem had flat-out disobeyed him. Chapter 10 Courage 5: Atticus showed his children that he was a courageous man when he stepped into the street to face down a rabid dog. Although he didn't consider the act particularly courageous and was completely uninterested in proving anything to his children, Jem and Scout were proud of, and impressed by, his courage in such a precarious situation. But shooting something wasn't really Atticus' idea of courage.
