In this society, we never would have actual reality show where people would really die, but its basically what’s going on, people are acting as if it‘s a game. Sadly, it has an affect on my life and many others around me. In the Hunger Games, a group of tributes form a group called the Careers to gang up on the rest of the contestants. In the U.S. and other societies, they all have gangs that work together to eliminate enemies. The Careers try to kill everyone so they can steal gain extra supplies.
My fingers trembled with fear as my stomach lurched from hunger, but that wasn’t a new feeling for us, the people in District twelve. It was the reaping today, which only means one thing, life or death. In punishment for the uprising, each of the twelve districts are made to provide one girl and one boy of the ages between twelve and eighteen. The twenty-four tributes are imprisoned in an arena and have to fight and kill each other to stay alive. My sister, Katniss, at the age of sixteen, her name will be in the reaping twenty times.
In Nepal when a Maoist supporter is found the standard scenario is the Nepali police barging into homes arresting the supporter so they can beat him/her severely for a few days and then let there family know that they were shot dead in an “encounter” with the police. In the case of fifteen year old Subhadra Sapkota, a dancer from Naubise was performing in Kathmandu to support Maoist rebels was gunned down by the police. Violence caused by the police affects Lucas 2 thousands every year world wide, and the fear of it never ending affects even more, even in countries like Nepal that people would never think of such an act being committed. Justice. Just what does this word mean?
Euripides Essay In his proverb, Euripides implies that whoever won’t want to learn at a young age, he or she won’t want to learn earlier on in life and won’t have a bright future. Also that they would love to go back to learn but it will be too late! Euripides supports his implication because everyone that reads his proverb knows that it’s true. This proverb hit me and gave me so many thoughts. Euripides proverb means so much but in less words.
And in the time it takes a gun to fire, Amari's life as she knows it is destroyed, along with her family and village. Beaten, branded, and dragged onto a slave ship, Amari is forced to witness horrors worse than any nightmare and endure humiliations she had never thought possible--including being sold to a plantation owner in the Carolinas who gives her to his sixteen-year-old son, Clay, as his birthday present. Now, survival and escape are all Amari dreams about. As she struggles to hold on to her memories in the face of backbreaking plantation work and daily degradation at the hands of Clay, she finds friendship in unexpected places. Polly, an outspoken indentured white girl, proves not to be as hateful as she'd first seemed upon Amari's arrival, and the plantation owner's wife, despite her trappings of luxury and demons of her own, is kind to Amari.
Kiairra Dixon Dr.Simmons E1305.01 1/15/14 Educational Quote “Aim for success, not perfection. Never give up your right to be wrong, because then you will lose the ability to learn new things and move forward with your life. Remember that fear always lurks behind perfectionism.” said by Dr. David M. Burns. This quote is highly motivational because it tells you that you are not perfect, but you don’t have to be to be successful. Perfectionism is defined by Wikipedia as, “is a personality trait characterized by a person's striving for flawlessness and setting excessively high performance standards, accompanied by overly critical self-evaluations and concerns regarding others' evaluations.” Dr.Burns states, “Fear always lurks behind perfectionism.” This means when you try to be perfect, you fear never being enough, so you continue to strive to become something you are not, learning nothing along the way.
Fear and frustration became a daily routine. Acquitted children are getting hijacked in front of their parents. And innocent people getting killed day by day. Death rate proliferations and peace, serenity declines. To sum it all up this happened because of gang, clicks, hooligans, ring, and many other trouble fabricators.
They do this by forcing each district to send a tribute; one boy and one girl from every district into the annual Hunger Game, in which they will fight until there is only a single winner left standing and it is all televised on live TV. In the Hunger Games, the psychological punishment in the dystopian society allows you as the reader to understand that contemporary issues like poverty, mistrust of one another, hunger, dehumanization, all being used by the government as weapons. The physical punishment is fear, as well as corporal punishment. Psychological Punishment: The first psychological punishment is poverty, in the Seam, Katniss is left to be the provider when her father is killed in the coal mines.

A monster called a div, with horns and tail and shining red eyes, invades the village one day, according to this story “Families would pray that the div would bypass their home, for they knew that if the div taped on their roof, they would have to give it one child.” The main thread is the story of Saboor and his descendants, with Abdullah ending up in the United States owning a restaurant called Abe’s Kebab House. This last part of the novel is narrated by Abdullah’s American-born daughter, a familiar type in this sort of literature — the child torn between America and the restrictive culture of her parents. In this case Abdullah insists on his daughter learning Farsi and undergoing instruction in the tenets of Islam, much against her inclination. Abdullah and his wife can hardly be blamed for this. Back in Afghanistan, even the poorest of villages has a mosque and a mullah (Islamic priest) to impart literacy and the teachings of the Quran.
Competitors are forced to kill each other in order to survive and there may only be one winner. Katniss Everdeen is the tribute competing from District 12 after stepping in for her younger sister who was chosen to compete. She is then forced into the arena and forced to fight for her survival while everyone at home watches on their televisions. My favorite character is Haymitch , Haymitch is Katniss and Peeta's trainer. He competed in The Hunger Games before and barely won.
