Common Sense By Leslie Marmon Silko 's Ceremony

- ... “So Tayo stood there . . . and he watched his uncle [Josiah] fall” (Marmon Silko 7). This quotation highlights two interpretations of the horrors Tayo experienced at war. First, we note that Tayo cannot stand the notion of killing. However, on another hand, Tayo is also consumed by the belief that his uncle was the person who was executed instead of a mere “Jap” as his fellow soldiers assert.

Bible: Hope in the Letters of Paul

- Hope (in Paul) The term “hope” appeared many times within the letters of Paul, fifty-four in the NIV Bible to be exact.
