Mrs. Turpin and Grandmother, the central characters of “Revelation” and “A good man is hard to find,” by Flannery O’Connor, are both in need of a truth check in their lives. . “As in all of O’Connor’s stories, the violent surface action only begins to suggest the depths and a complexity of meaning embedded in the story. This is especially true when considering the mystery of evil and its relation to the action of grace” (Desmond). Mrs. Turpin considers herself morally superior to others by being a “lady,” and she judges people on their appearance before she even knows them.

Samantha Colona 03/05/2013 Jeanne Theoharis. The Rebellious Life of Mrs. Rosa Parks. Massachusetts: Beacon Press, 2013. One of my favorite passages from The Rebellious Life of Mrs. Rosa Parks comes from Rosa Parks during a phone interview, “I learned that no matter how much you try, how hard you work to give people an incentive it is something you yourself cannot give to another person.

The issue of abortion is an ongoing debate in the U.S, that involves a variety of moral, social, and legal issues. The ethics surrounding the procedure are frequently disputed and people often question whether abortion should remain a legal option for terminating pregnancies. Proponents of abortion, favor unrestricted access and contend that it’s a woman’s right to choose what she does with her body. On the other hand, opponents seek to ban the practice and argue that deliberately ending an unborn child’s life is morally wrong.

For now it could be hard to infer why Sacagawea did not seek revenge against the colonization, let alone the fact that the Expedition was quite harsh to her, a young woman carrying a baby. However, what could be soundly inferred is that without her negotiation, it might have been impossible for Lewis and Clark to understand Indian tribes and convey their thoughts.

Anzaldua gives examples of modern contradictions, which might throw light on why Sacagawea does not seek a revenge.

Furthermore, it is a woman’s choice whether or not to use birth control, and it is an effective way to help couples plan or prevent having children; however, others argue that birth control is unethical because it denies natural processes, interferes with the work of God, and defeats the basic purpose of sex, which is procreation. If people are ethically opposed to this controversial issue, should their tax dollars be utilized towards its implementation? Although, the women’s strike for equality was successful, the consumption of birth control still raised eyebrows. People face individual obstacles that are not always conducive to having and or
