Thanks to Ms.Nordstrom he wrote his first kids book titled The lion who shot back . The next year he wrote two book titled a giraffe and a half plus The giving tree. Silverstein’s giving tree was very well -discussed because people thought it was not appropriate for little kids. Because you see he meant for it to be a taste of real life for kids to explain how greedy people really are. Then the 1960’s were over and he went back to songwriting.He wrote songs for everyone like Johnny Cash and Dr. hook.
John had become cemetery john, which the Dr. had told them that it was indeed Hauptmann. It took about two and ½ years for someone to pay for anything with the money. When this person paid for gas, the money he gave the store clerk made the clerk suspicious because he thought that the bank may not take a gold numbers $10 bill, so he decided to write down the license plate number. When it came back, they discovered it was Bruno Richard Hauptmann (known in Germany as Richard Hauptmann no Bruno to be found).

Although it was very expensive it was very important or my dad to send me to a trip to Poland. I never heard the story of my grandfather from him, only through my dad. He was too unstable and my dad did not want him to relive those times. It is a two week trip to Poland with a Holocaust survivor that guide us through what he have been through, we been in all the museums, and the concentration camps. As we have watched the movie about the Holocaust in class all the images that I witnessed came back, I saw the gates with the in craving of "Work will set you free", the gas showers, and the gethos.
Today, we hear stories about the holocaust and we learn about it in global history, but we have didn’t live through it so we cannot relate to how the people felt as they were living through it. Reading the section of the book Night makes me wonder why the Jews didn’t rebel against the Hungarian and German officers but then I realize that rebelling would just get them killed. This portion of the book makes me think of my great grandfather because my grandpa would tell me stories about my great grandfather’s life in Ireland and how he had lived in terrible living conditions because he didn’t have a lot of money. Just hearing about my great grandfathers living conditions when he lived in Ireland makes me realize how terrible the Jews living in the holocaust had been because just hearing about my great grandfathers life makes me realize how much worse living in the holocaust would be because they were living in unsanitary places, did not have much food and were treated horribly and this affected all of the Jews in
Watching the documentary I learned a lot of new information and relearned the information I forgotten. Some information I learned or relearned from the documentary included: Emmett Till was from Chicago and is visiting down in Mississippi where there is segregation, the jury serving in the case was all white and from the same area the murderers were from, the jury found the defendants not guilty because the state couldn’t confirm the identity of the body as being Emmett Till, the Rosa Parks incident happened about 100 days after the murder, and Emmett’s murder help fuel the African-American Civil Rights Movement. I learned
Yet these truths are no solace against the kind of alienation that comes of being ever the suspect, a fearsome entity with whom pedestrians avoid making eye contact. It is not altogether clear to me how I reached the ripe old age of twenty-two without being conscious of the lethality nighttime pedestrians attributed to me. Perhaps it was because in Chester, Pennsylvania, the small, angry industrial town where I came of age in the 1960’s, I was scarcely noticeable against the backdrop of gang warfare, street knifings, and murders. I grew up one of the good boys, had perhaps a half-dozen fist fights. In retrospect, my shyness of combat has clear sources.
Illinois has failed to commit to a single type of conceal and carry law, this raises a question; what does the governor have against the safety of citizens throughout the state?

The guy in the track suit turned out to be a 17-year-old suburban Boston track star who told The Associated Press he was afraid to leave his house because of the scrutiny. Another group of the Redditors, speculated that Sunil Tripathi, a Brown University student who has been missing since last month, could be a possible suspect. The point of crowdsourcing after all, wasn’t just to find the bombers—it was also to connect and talk with others, and to feel like you were part of a virtual community. Reddit has done an excellent job of being engaging. Now it needs to figure out if it wants to be effective.
Alejandro Pombo C. Segura Ms.Whitlock Period C English 1 16, Nov 12 Of Mice and Men Essay “We live as we dream alone” by Joseph Conrod. Loneliness has always been in our world since the beginning of time but where loneliness was very present was during the 1800s. In the novel of Mice Men, John Steinbeck portrays loneliness through the migrant workers who travel all over America looking for work.
