David Midyan 2 TIEAC paragraphs (Novel: Speak) In the beginning of the novel, Melinda is depressed. She is often alone and quiet, because she called the cops at the party. Even her ex-best friends don’t want to talk to talk to her because of that. For example, in “Spotlight” Melinda thinks, “Nobody really wants to hear what you have to say” (9 page). She thinks of that, because she realizes that others remember what happened at the party.
Therefore, the black community in Maycomb was crippled with fear. A fear that they will get lynched for a crime they did not commit. Stereotyping is a human instinct. We will always stereotype people's race, class and families. When Aunt Alexandra lived with the Finches, she said this to Scout about the Cunninghams, "Because he is trash, that's why you cant play with him.
Before their family tragedy occurs, none of them could ever think about changing mentality or lifestyle, therefore all characters are psychologically unready to survive their loss. Moreover, this event makes some of the characters starting to think differently. Nandana is one of the main characters who can also be considered a hero. She initially lives an illusion when she refuses to accept that her parents died. As she refuses to talk to anybody, the child created her own imaginary world being unwilling to look at the reality: “Why couldn't he understand that if he kept quiet, if all of them kept quiet, her parents would hear her and come to take her home?” (47).
I know that I could let my 10 year old daughter walk to school by herself, but with shooting all the time I walk her to school. Sometimes, I get scared just sitting in my house doing nothing. It’s crazy to know that you are not even safe in your own home. The gangs are taking over society and holding us hostage in our homes. I don’t let my kids play outside, because of the violence.
It could also be teaching parents and adults to be careful of what they do in front of children, but the first part is strange because there doesn’t really seem to be any moral or lesson to learn. “Freddy and Katy” would be categorized as both a cautionary and an endless tale. I think this because there was no real ending since Katy just joins the thieves and people see her as the devil. Also, it teaches a lesson similar to Clever Hans that one should have some common sense and think for themselves without someone always telling them what to do. Katy always has good intentions, but she is unable to distinguish between reality and fiction and it seems like she has the mind of a child.
He is a child not planned for or not wanted. Neglect begins, therefore, before he is born” this is a quote by Pearl Buck that addresses the primary reason for child neglect. Many people see neglect as a silent problem because neglect is passive and often characterized by depression and resignation. According to Walker (2008), “While newspapers and TV news shows regularly highlight stories of child physical and sexual abuse, the companion problem, child neglect, hardly gets a mention. Neglect, unless accompanied by pictures of squalor or emaciated kids, is much harder to capture in a headline or sound bites” (p. 1).
However there is a small chance that there are people who are stupid or impressionable enough, that they should go act out a scene from these films, and these people are a small minority that don’t make any statistical difference. The issue is there are people out there that believe violent films provoke and are the cause to violence in our society, but by then end of this speech, they will be re-thinking their theory. * * Violence is a large topic. There so many un-answered questions on how to stop or reduce the amount of viciousness in our society. But blaming violent films isn’t the answer, because there is no proof the repeated exposure to cinematic horrors has more impact than, for example, mental illness, long-term unemployment and poverty, alienation, alcohol and drugs, mob behaviour or simply frustration and anger at the state of the world.
Reflection Question # 7 1- Personally, I had never experience any kind of abuse or neglect in my house, however; I had seen some people abusing from their kids. One time I remember when I went to the store, and the little boy was crying because he wanted to buy a toy, his mom get very mad and she yelled to the child and slapped. 2- The only thing that I did when I looked at the lady by hitting the child was that I approached her and told her not beat his child because he does not understand, he is a child and he doesn’t know that there is no money to buy toys. I was very upset because I hate child abuse. I think that the outcome of this confrontation was that she understood that it is wrong to hit the child in public places.
But this particular genre of movie, I would refuse to watch even if someone gives me a free admission, is a horror film. In fact, I can’t stand seeing blood anywhere in the screen and there are many people who are uncomfortable to even find horrible titles on the schedule display board, questioning the necessity of horror films. Many critics and articles are written concerning how it could give negative effects on children. However, despite of my personal taste and social views, horror films are still necessary and furthermore, they naturally are a healthy entertainment; they are just highly-advanced extensions of entertaining stories, what was passed on mouth-to-mouth since ancient Greek, they usually are cautionary tales and there are studies suggest that watching horror movie could be an enjoyable experience, all by nature. There are people who see horror films as a product of society in decay, to satisfy need for violence.
