She also uses a lot of characterization through this symbolism, to add even further to her book. In art class, Mr. Freeman allows his students to randomly choose a topic from a globe, for which they will spend the entire year trying to bring to meaning to. Melinda is not happy with the simple tree she has selected, and feels it isn't interesting enough for her. “Tree? It's too easy, I learned how to draw a tree in second grade.
Abraham Lincoln, the greatest man in U.S. history, had many great accomplishments for this nation throughout his presidency. The most significant of these accomplishments was the abolishment of slavery. His love for America motivated him to do what he knew to be just.

She indirectly implicates the truth and meaning of the lottery through the names and objects in the setting. I believe the lottery shows us how following a tradition closed minded could lead to unnecessary cruelty. Mr. Hutchison participates in his own wife’s stoning.

The lives of the people in the town are basically jeopardized due to this yearly ritual, the “lottery”. The people of the town, are obsessed with tradition that they forget their purpose of action and the effects it may contain. “Although the villagers had forgotten the ritual and lost the original black box, they still remembered to use stones.” The Lottery, page 71 line 221. The villagers are blinded by tradition that they do not see the cause of their actions. Tradition and rituals are basically stoning a human to death and in this case Tessie Hutchinson who is chosen among the villagers.

Many slaves were beaten with whips almost every day for no reason at all. Some slaves were even beaten to death by their masters. Frederick Douglass even recalls when one slave disobeyed his master, and he got shot and killed right on the spot. (Douglass 2000-2010) Also, by law these killings were not seen as a crime in the south because they felt that if a slave’s master killed them, they had a good reason for doing so. Therefore, a slave’s life seemed worthless in the world, and this stopped many slaves from trying to escape because they knew that if they were caught they would most likely be killed.
Every year I was involved in Dream Makers where we bought toys for underprivileged kids during Christmas. During Thanksgiving I collected and sorted food for Food for Families. The biggest event that most of the community was involved in would have been Relay for Life; everyone would join together as a community and volunteer. Here at Texas A&M I am not currently involved.
