You can shoot at all the blue jays you want, if you can hit them, but remember it\'s a sin to kill a mocking bird. This warning in the novel To Kill A Mocking Bird by Harper Lee is foreshadowing an innocent mans death in a small town so blinded by prejudice and hatred based on fear that the jury did not come to the right verdict, but instead, a verdict based on the fear of the African-Americans replacing the Whites in societal status. The setting in the novel is filled with so much prejudice th
Immigrant Territory: Why America needs Immigration Zenon Yanez U.S History Honors Mr. Mecca November 1, 2015 So many times the phrase melting pot is used to define the United States of America. It is a nation built on principles such as freedom of speech, freedom of religion, and other rudimentary human rights. These principles, though they may have been created from European men labeled as liberals, ultimately captured supporters from all over the world. Quickly, America was a mixture of ind
Even though political correctness was created with a good purpose, most of the time it does more damage than good. The most explicit instance of damage is how political correctness fans try not to offend anyone. The standards of our country have transformed drastically over the past few decades thanks to a society that was created by and for a system (communism) that we have not accepted for as long as The United States has existed. This has forced me to ask, what consequences do we allow by per
The Pleasure of Pain These days anything can be considered art. The structure of a building, the human body, music on the radio, love, Versaci’s new line of winter, and pretty transvestites walking down the street are just a few of hundreds of thousands of examples. That kind of art is overrated. Most of these only exist because of society. As people grow and change so does the values and traditions that they are accustomed to. True art hangs on the walls of museums all over the world. Paintings
Alexander Graham Bell Alexander Graham Bell\'s invention of the telephone grew out of his research into ways to improve the telegraph. His soul purpose was to help the deaf hear again.

Bell’s family was told of his insistence upon mailing a letter to a family friend well before
Abraham Lincoln On the stormy morning of Sunday, February 12, Nancy Hanks Lincoln, wife of Thomas, gave birth to a boy. He was born on a bed of poles covered with corn husks.

Australia underwent many stages of contrasting public opinion during their nation\'s decade-long involvement in the Vietnam War . During the start of t his troop sendoff, in 1965 from Robert Menzies \' government, a primarily apathetic public community had no
American Dream America does not provide everyone with an equal chance to accomplish the American dream because not everyone has equal opportunity and financially stable. Not everyone has the same opportunities provided to them because of where they live or who their parents are. Also some people aren't given the same financial benefits as others from society and their families. In the short story America and I by Anzia Yezierska he explains how she can't accomplish her American Dream because

EXTRA CREDIT #4 I feel that if the FCC defines its profanity as language that includes those words that are so highly offensive that their mere utterance in the context presented may, in legal terms, amount to a ‘nuisance'. I feel like it truly depends as to who we are speaking about for example we have this freedom of religion yet for some reason when someone like Kathy Griffin in her 2007 Emmy broadcast on E! made comments in her acceptance speech that have been described as anti-Christi

Althusser - a Critique With the exception of Nietzsche, no other madman has contributed so much to human sanity as has Louis Althusser. He is mentioned twice in the Encyclopaedia Britannica as someone's teacher. There could be no greater lapse: for two important decades (the 60s and the 70s), Althusser was at the eye of all the important cultural storms. He fathered quite a few of them. This newly-found obscurity forces me to summarize his work before suggesting a few (minor) modifications to it
The Madness of Playing If a lone, unkempt, person, standing on a soapbox were to say that he should become the Prime Minister, he would have been diagnosed by a passing psychiatrist as suffering from this or that mental disturbance. But were the same psychiatrist to frequent the same spot and see a crowd of millions saluting the same lonely, shabby figure - what would have his diagnosis been? Surely, different (perhaps of a more political hue). It seems that one thing setting social games apart

Paige Pickering Mr. Starr English III 3 March 2010 Similarities in Fireside Poetry ?Thanatopsis?, written by William Cullen Bryant, and ?The Tide Rises, The Tide Falls?, written by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow are both uplifting poems about nature and life repeating and creating a cycle. Although they are two poems of their own, they both give a reassuring feeling of happiness for repetition. In both ?Thanatopsis? and ?The Tide Rises,? the subject, the structure and the use of imagery are very muc
Although my research suggests that the hollow men probably represent Guy Fawkes? dummies that are blown apart to celebrate Guy Fawkes Day, for some reason the first stanza has always evoked images of the strawman in the Wizard of Oz, desperately seeking a brain, not realizing just how dangerous, and useless, a brain might be. It?s never quite clear, particularly if you see this poem in light of poems like ? J. Alfred Prufrock,? whether having a brain is a good thing or a bad thing. These people
Here in my post, I would like to give the ten (10) sobresaliente moments that Dr. Jose Rizal taught me, and probably taught you, and better yet, taught each and every Filipinos. These are only my thoughts and ideas so it is all up to you if you want to agree or not. | Dr. Rizal's famous quote about loving our own language | 1. BEING A POLYGLOT - As far as I know, Rizal has a mind of a genius in any aspect. And being a genius, could you imagine that he could speak 22 different foreign languages.
