Marissa always got everything she wanted; I envied how she never had to do chores and got everything handed to her, but then I realized that in the end I became a more independent person because I worked hard for what I wanted. I was young and naïve, but what I did not realize was that she did not have a family that would go to the end of the earth for her and her family tried to buy her love instead of spending the time with her to show her. As a kid I had everything I needed, but not everything I wanted and that is what made me jealous of her. In Toni Cade Bambara’s piece of literature “The Lesson” Miss Moore showed kids, that knew nothing more than the projects, an expensive toy store called F.A.O. Schwartz to make them see that there
Most think that we live in a place where we can think on our own and we are encouraged to believe whatever we want. We never think of some obvious things that are just norms in our society. We look at women and we know the difference between ugly and beautiful, because we have been taught this. Social norms come naturally because we have been taught then our whole life and then have been engrained into our heads, just like the alphabet and simple kindergarten skills. Humans can grow up and be conditioned to believe whatever we want them to, it is just a matter of making their brain accustom to a different world or set of beliefs.
In reading and studying “Speak” By author Laurie Halse Anderson , my character analysis has taught me how Melinda dealt with her problem and what she went through to get her life back…it also taught me to choose my friends carefully and that keeping your anger and pain bottled up can hurt you more than you know. Reading this book taught me that no one should judge anyone’s feelings because no one knows what they’ve been through and how they
The teachers also should have stepped in when they saw the fight happening and not just stood there. It teaches us students that we should stand up for kids, and teachers are not always the good person in the situation and there could be favoring. In conclusion, I think that The Chocolate War was a very good book that taught very interesting lessons. It always makes me think twice but saying, “no” to something that I should do. I think the lesson here is to just plain out respect everyone and you will not have any problems.
Despite the lack of responsibility, there are women who are not freemartins that, “did not forget their contraceptive precautions by the regulations,” (Huxley, 77). Women who are not free martins have the responsibility to take their contraceptives in order to not get pregnant but this is not quite a responsibility because they are trained and conditioned to do so. In this society, one is trained to do things a certain way and any other way is wrong so the responsibility there is has been already taught and instilled in the brain to the point that it isn’t a responsibility anymore. In this society there are still outcasts who find it is their responsibility to keep up appearances, such as when Bernard goes to Solidarity Service and, “ he heard nothing and, for him nobody was
She is a young head strong girl who knows what she wants and how to get it, while not letting anything obstruct her path. By saying ‘I shall not prove disloyal’ represents how she feels about what she is going to do, even though it does mean breaking the law. Antigone knows that is against the law but doesn’t care because her family and moral values are more important to her. She made a vow she took seriously to bury her brother and her execution of that vow epitomizes her view of the correct moral duty. A responsibility that one is given as soon as they enter the family is making decisions and displaying actions that carry forth a sense of ethical duty.
It’s not he/she place to discriminate, or to treat Sandra differently because beliefs are different. Growing up we were always taught to treat others as you want to be treated. In healthcare I feel it is a lot different. It’s your job to always treat the patient with respect and understand their needs and wants. Although Sandra was not conscious and could not make choices herself, the staff tried contacting her next of kin, when they were unreachable they took matters into their own hands to help Sandra.
After reading the article, named “The Truth about Lying” by Judith Viorst, I was wondering whether these lie is a protective lie or a trust-keeping lie. I tell this kind of lie not to protect myself because I know she won’t scold me or give me any punishment for being late. I tell these lie to keep my mother away from worrying about me. Again, my mother trusts me a lot. She believes that I can never lie to her, I can never do anything wrong behind her back.
Hooks mentions that she did not share the sensibility and values of her peers. She says “class was not just about money; it was about values which showed and determined behavior.” Hooks was adamant about not losing the values she obtained from her family back home in Kentucky. She felt that she did not need a new set of beliefs and values. As an example hooks describes how shocked and disturbed she felt when her peers would talk about their parents without respect, or would even say that they hated their parents. It was explained to her that such hatred was “healthy and normal”.
My view about the world totally changed with everything happened to me, I learned that nobody responsible about my life or my problems I am the only one in charge with what will happen to me. Also, do what I think is right to me not what the other people think. I also, learned to be patient with other people and put myself in their situation. For example, I am a teacher so I usually understand that any students could face a bad day or have trouble to move on I helped them and I tried to give them the chance to improve and motivated them as a teacher that I was in the same their situation and I faced the same
