After the performance he made Fanny one of the well known 'Ziegfield Follies' for the 1910 edition and helped boost up her journey of becoming a star. If it wasn't for Ziegfield she would of still become a star, but publicity does make everything. Ziefield gave a twist to her. Instead of giving her the typical girly girl beautiful dress songs, he gave Fanny her signature song "My Man" She had done comedy throughout her career so far and now Ziegfield gives her a sad song to sing. I would of thought Ziegfield was loosing it, don't fix what's not broken.
People were so upset because they were afraid that sending troops to Iraq would take the focus off of Afghanistan and the mission to find Bin Laden. Seeing the way that people just turn against and decide that they want to kill innocent people just does not make since. Looking at this serious situation, many people see that the September 11th attacks badly because it was more of a modern day situation. Also it was in the United States, which we live in. The attack was a very tragic and hurting time in American history.
With firefights, life and death situations, and the mourning of their fellow soldiers, Restrepo showed that when it comes to war, even when we win, everyone still loses. At war, winning is the main goal. Defeating the opposing side and fighting for your country is what soldiers sign up to do. However, even when the soldiers accomplish their goal, and survive the war, a part of them still dies. They will never be the same person they were before they left for war because what they see, experience and feel will change them no matter how tough they are.
It was one of the most heart breaking decisions I ever had to make but I could see the pain that old dog was going through and I couldn’t stand to see him hurting anymore. Carlson promised me he would try his best not make it painful for Scruffy but I was too upset to say anything. He led him out of the bunkhouse and I just had to lie down. It tore me apart having to see him leave and know that was the last time I would ever see him. The guys tried to distract me from the situation but it was all I could think about.
The next technique that I will be showing is repetition. Repetition is when something is repeated to give a much stronger affect, throughout this poem Wilfred Owen repeats that he hates the war due to the weather and the lies they were fed about war. I am going to talk about is “but nothing happens” in this poem this quote comes in four times in stanzas one, three, four and eight. The hatred in this quote is that they are waiting for the government to come and collect them, they are waiting for the bad weather to end but most of all
I suppose British General Cornwallis was quite engaged with the constant French attacks and for a second in this brawl, he forgot about us. From what I had heard the French had successfully blocked Cornwallis’s supplies and were preparing to attack. Upon hearing this news we immediately celebrated even though we had not even begun the battle. I soon began to feel grief for us American and could comprehend the reason for the French’s behavior. They merely wanted to win the battle to go home but, they felt this would not be possible with an unorganized, uncivilized, and brutal American army fighting alongside them.
World War 1 there was a lot of fighting and a lot of people going against each other for their own beliefs and what they may have wanted that they couldn’t get so they had to fight in order to get what they want. The war brung a lot of
The long-term unstable society and the cold war made them have the sense of lost. They began to suspect the democracy of their country. Facing this kind of frustration, their choices were not decadence, depression, but resistance. They disbelieved their government, hated the Vietnam War, but they were still patriotic. Although the Counterculture Movement had many negative factors, such as decadent, crackers, vulgar and mysterious, which caused a bad effect on the youth, behind the decadent lifestyle, they had the motivated and raging dreams.
The War in Iraq Isn’t it interesting how the media portraits the war in Iraq? It’s always the negative points and never the good ones. There is so much disbelief and lying about our military and government that it is disgusting! Everyone believes that this war is pointless and stupid, however it needed to be done to make an example! The United States is the strongest government in the world and the media puts it down so very hard.
They believe this was a right that they were given by our Four Fathers, which is clearly not true. Yes, they have the freedom of speech but when should the freedom be taken away? What about the rights of the innocent victims and their families? Hate crimes, because of their nature will always lead to violence and this is not a freedom that people should have. In my opinion, the penalties for hate crimes should continue to be more severe than that of a regular crime because so many innocent people are injured and even killed simply because they are different.
