People actually just packed up their life and moved away. Mark Sauer, a Polio Survivor is quoted with saying that Polio ‘was the robber of hope for a generation, several generations of children, there were many other diseases that were bad for America, but Polio broke its heart.’ The disease did not seem to have rhyme or reason and acted much like a tornado, affecting some but not others. With the absence of any concrete knowledge on how to stop the spread of Polio, panic and hysteria took over. Sunday schools closed and children under the age of 16 were not allowed to attend local theaters. Medical professionals and scientists initially blamed the spread on the filth and overcrowding in the immigrant neighborhoods.
Possibly the biggest and only change we see in Ender is that he loses his fears and learns to be a leader and ultimately the noble hero of the story. The entire plot and characters from the movie where interesting. I particularly enjoyed seeing Ender’s journey from being a child to becoming a young man but neverc losing the core values he believed
Running head: THE LIFE OF MARCOS HERNANDEZ The Life of Marcos Hernandez Marcos Hernandez THE LIFE OF MARCOS HERNANDEZ The Life of Marcos Hernandez Marcos Hernandez was my best friend. Marcos was the kind of friend who would stand by you in times of need, even if he was extremely busy he would make time to listen and offer some heartfelt advice.

Although the shooting was not Nicholas II’s fault, he was given the nickname, “ The Bloody Murderer” and stated that he was not going to make any changes for the people. This was the last major event before the Revolution of 1905 officially broke out. New councils created by urban workers in order to better organize strikes were created called Soviets. During this time, Russian cities were dying because all the workers and peasants were focused on rebelling against the government and seizing the land of their landlords, instead of working in the factories and living the life of a peasant or urban worker.
What’s even worse is that after the attacks of 911 there were many citizens who supported this act. George Orwell predicted this; that citizens would care so much about safety that they would lose their individual rights and be okay with it. This is exactly what happens in the story. The Proles (proletariat) are so blinded by their need to be safe and secure that they believe everything that Party tells them. For example they might decrease the amount of food

I would have thought that it’d be much easier to fall asleep once I got back home in my own bed, but it wasn’t. I haven’t been on a long airplane ride in a long time, so I forgot what was so bad about jet lag. It was so frustrating, so I just gave up and watched TV and stayed up on the laptop that whole night. It was as if my mind was tired, but my body wasn’t or vice versa. At the end of the 72 hours, my eyes felt heavy, it become hard to walk, I was crabby, mean and impatient, my body was weak, and I got a fever, but this happens almost every time I travel for a long period of time although this time was the worst.
