Memorial Day

- What is the first thing that goes though your mind when you hear the words Memorial Day. What does it mean to you. What symbolization does it hold in you. Ladies and gentlemen, sadly enough, the true meaning of Memorial Day has been seemingly lost by the majority of Americans today. Many confuse this day for Veterans Day or even Armed Forces Day. Although it is highly appropriate to honor all our veterans, living and dead, and to recognize their immeasurable contributions to our country, this is not the true meaning of Memorial Day....   [tags: essays research papers]

- Memorable Day Drip, drop, drip, drop; it’s the sound of light rain on the window of my small, cramped hotel room in New York City. I pray that the sound will just drift away to nothingness and bring back the heavy sounds of the city. I wait patiently in the early morning darkness, which the rain has brought to my window waiting for some kind of sign of a hot New York day. Of all the days to rain, why did it have to be this day.

It Was An Ordinary Day

- It was an ordinary day on a frosty January morning in 1805. A soft, white blanket of snow covered the peaceful city streets. The sun was not up yet, and the birds had not started singing their cheery morning songs. The Jones’s household, or should I say the Jones’ single room in a tenement, was tranquil. However, that would not last long, as it was 5:15 in the morning, and our family’s jobs started at six. I rolled over on the hard floor with a slight thump. It was too early, so I curled back up in the blanket and felt some extra material....   [tags: Family, Mother, Father, Parent]

My brother is leaving to head to basketball camp. My other brother is heading to work. Today was going to be a day with just my stepdad and me.

The Longest Day

- "The Longest Day" was a mammoth project dramatizing D-day, the Allied invasion of France. It was nearly three hours in length and with an enormous ensemble cast, all playing supporting roles. The production was very conscientious about realism, the actors were always of the same nationality as their characters, and spoke in their native languages, leading to a lot of subtitles translating French and German dialogue. Although the movie was historically correct, it was also meant to be a blockbuster by starring John Wane, Robert Mitchum, Sean Connery and Henry Fonda....   [tags: essays research papers fc]

Within the glamorous setting of Hollywood, West’s characters take on multiple roles instead of assuming individual personalities. They put on and remove these imaginary personality masks, similar to those in the Commedia dell’Arte, to exhibit a range of emotions that only their character type would exhibit. Consequently, West’s characters are trapped in this restrictive atmosphere, especially at the end of the novel when they become part of a collective mob....   [tags: Nathaniel West Day Locust Esays]

- The Theme of Hope in One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich       In Alexander Solzhenitsyn's novel One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich, the strong themes of hope and perseverance are undercut by the realization that for Ivan there is little or no purpose in life.  This is not to say that the themes of hope and perseverance do not exist in the novel.  There are numerous instances in the novel where Shukhov is filled with hope. However, these moments of hope amidst the banal narrative of the novel raise the interesting question:  Are these moments of hope pointless?  The answer to this question may lie more in the individual human nature of the reader than in Solzhenits...   [tags: One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich Essays]
