My Lai 4 by Seymour M. Hersh

- My Lai 4 by Seymour M. Hersh The words "My Lai" will forever be infamous in the annals of American military history, for they denote the site of the event that shames America most in a war she would rather forget. The book in question is an account pieced together by journalist Seymour Hersh of the Associated Press. His account of the incident itself is based entirely upon personal interviews with the men involved, frequently two or three each. Unsurprisingly, given the nature of eyewitness testimony, there is a great deal of contradiction between these various accounts, and to his credit, Mr....   [tags: Book Review War]

I Remember When - Personal Narrative

- I Remember When - Personal Narrative It was the first weekend in September. The summer holidays were over, and the schools had started back. I was on the beach for the first time after a long week at work. As Stratton was such a small Cornish town, there were very few people on the beach. My next-door neighbour and drinking partner, Hamish Pengelly was just leaving the beach after walking his dog, Graham Smith; the new owner of Stratton Manor was on the beach watching his son, Charlie, playing in a rubber dingy in the water....   [tags: Papers]

Flowers For Algernon by Daniel Keyes

- This is the fifteenth in a series of reviews of those pieces of written science fiction and fantasy which have won both the Hugo and Nebula awards. I had some reservations about including "Flowers for Algernon" in this series. It is an unusual case in that different versions of the story won different awards; the original short story, published in Fantasy and Science Fiction in 1959, won a 1960 Hugo, while the novel length expansion jointly won a 1966 Nebula. So to do it justice I would have to review two separately published versions of the story in one web page....   [tags: Flowers Algernon Keyes]

- Charles Manson      Charles Manson has been named "the most dangerous man alive." Society referred to him as the devil. They believed he was the reason society was so bad in the 1960's. The 1950's to the 1960's was uncontrollably filled with violence. Our culture was shattered by the assassinations of President John F. Kennedy, Martin Luther King Jr., and Senator Robert F. Kennedy. At the same time, body bags from Vietnam were building up from a war that was tearing our nation apart. Riots and antiwar protesters marched across America....   [tags: essays research papers]

Reunion, an Analysis

- The meeting of a long but not forgotten friend can make you feel so excited you can't keep a smile off your face. The short story by John Cheever "reunion" is about a son meeting his father for the first time in 3 years. The shortcomings of a person having preconceived notions of how a person has evolved can be traumatic. I too had a similar situation with an old friend from high school just recently.

- My Lai Massacre Soldiers are trained to always follow orders, and to never question orders. But that belief is somewhat illogical. Soldier's are to obey any lawful order given. But the training involved, the often chaotic nature of battle, and the need to follow authority to maintain survival can lead to a very blurred vision of what is right or wrong. One's animalistic instincts may take over. Sometimes there are such situations when you've stepped over the line.

The Unknown

- “Are you looking at me” are the famous words one of our 3 leading men Travis Bickle from Taxi Driver (Martin Scorsese, 1976) says by looking at himself in the mirror. He displays perfectly the idea of a child playing around with his toys; however unlike a child he has a purpose, a will to do what he is ‘supposed’ to. It has been stated that The Searchers (John Ford, 1956) has been a reference point for Paul Schrader’s writing in Scorsese’s classic film Taxi Driver. Scorsese uses the plot line, the character study, and the violence in The Searchers and transforms it to his movies such as Taxi Driver and Mean Streets (Martin Scorsese, 1973)....   [tags: Film Analysis ]

The Jagged Edges of a Shattered American Dream in Death of a Salesman

- The American dream is an ideal for all Americans to get the best out of life. It stands for an easy and comfortable life, which makes you independent and your own boss. Historically, the American dream meant a promise of freedom and opportunity, offering the chance of riches even to those who start with nothing. This is something that Arthur Miller conveys in his play Death of a Salesman.

For me, I do service because others need my help and I have been so fortunate in life that the least I could do is give back. Service should be done for the betterment of one’s self and for the community and world around us. Yet some do service for other reasons. These include being forced to do service hours because of a crime which has been committed, or using community service as an image builder and public relations....   [tags: Admissions Essays]
