Prejudice was a good topic to talk about and to be recognized, and Battle Royal fit the toll perfectly. I had the idea of prejudice, but I was able to elaborate on it more with the help of my classmates and professor. I would also like to acknowledge and thank my friend Christopher Martin for reading over my paper and giving helpful insights. I always find that a peer knows how to understand what one is trying to say or help to make sense of it. He offered a lot of help and was willing to make notes on my paper to attempt at helping me make my paper the best it could possibly be.
She lost all her friends and has no one to talk to and share her feelings to, besides Heather. Heather is a girl who comes from Ohio and moved to Syracuse New York. She is a student from a different middle school and is unaware of the incident that just took place. Heather becomes her friend, but she soon backs off from being Melinda’s friend because she thinks that Melinda is the most depressed girl she ever met and she is not so cool so she goes and hangs out with the cool girls. Leaving, Melinda everyone turns there back on Melinda, but her lab partner who tells her and encourages her to speak up and not to remain silent.
Dear Diary, I had the craziest day at school today. We went on a trip to some ancient Greek ruins. Even though Mr. Brunner was leading the trip it didn’t make anything better. On the way to the ruins (on the coach) Nancy Bobofit kept winding me up by throwing her rotten food at my best friend Grover. She knew I couldn’t do anything as I’m on probation, and apparently I’m on my last chance.
Her parents never realized that after every meal Rachel would secretly go to the bathroom upstairs and throw up everything she had eaten. Her father would beat her up and treat her like trash and her mother would just stand there and not say a word because she was weak and always did as Rachel’s dad said. In her kindergarten class, Rachel treated all the other little girls with rudeness, anger, and jealousy towards anyone who was better than her. She often spent her days in the principal’s office because of her strong character and misbehaviors. Rachel grew up, went through her dating stage, and then finally met a wonderful man that she could not picture herself without; a caring, positive, supportive husband that goes by the name of Tim.
It was confusing, long, extremely messed up and held all of two maybe three ethical factors. Twenty minutes into the movie, I nearly shut it off and was going to take a zero for the grade. I refuse to ever watch this movie again, nor would I ever recommend it to anyone. The first Unethical thing noticed is Agustin’s mother keeps him home from school often, then the way his parents talk and fight with each other in front of their son is absolutely ridiculous. Soon after his mother then SELLS her son to her ‘Psychiatrist”.
It makes me want to get in the word and commit like him. He is a wonderful role model. I really thought it was cool to be inside his head on games that I physically watched on TV. It was cool and through out the book I found myself saying, “So that’s how that happened.” I just really respect Tim Tebow for his commitment to his team and anything he does. I also liked knowing his background and childhood.
After that happens she tries to hang herself. A burglar that was intending to steal actually saved her and they fell in love. He also left Kiki leaving her with a two year old daughter, Lily, because Kiki was having the same outbursts that Ava had and he didn’t know where they came
Many of them tattered and broken like their homes and families. I vividly remember a little girl, no older than 5, telling me that she, “couldn’t go swimming in the ocean anymore because she had seen a dead body the last time they went.” Along with that, I remember a little 3 year old boy, who’s dad was in jail, and the single mother had to try and support three kids, not knowing where they’d be living that night or when their next meal would be. I could not piece these kids or their families back together like a jigsaw puzzle; although, I wish I could’ve. I did, however, try my best to make their days a little better. They sat in my lap and held my hands as we sang songs.
Leaving home at 16 doesn't even seem all that bad to me when I think about being away from this family. Everyone's down stairs having a great time laughing and I'm sitting in the bathroom crying about how much my life sucks and no one cares. My ducking father is a heroine addict that would choose coke or heroine over me any day and my mother is fucking addicted to her pain killers and sits home all day letting her child not eat for days. She won't give me money or take care of me. All she has to do is get a faking job and she won't even do that.
The fight escalated and Myrtle ran outside, waving down the yellow car that she saw Tom driving earlier. As she ran into the middle of the street, expecting the vehicle to slow down, it instead struck her and left her dead. When Tom heard about this tragedy, he knew that now there was no way he could ever tell Wilson what had been going on between him and Myrtle, even if he wasn’t ever planning on telling him. The fight that broke out between the Wilsons was because of the affair that Wilson knew Myrtle was having, although he didn’t know who. Tom was smart enough to infer that Wilson had knowledge of the affair.
