Back to The Mighty, Kevin and Max realized that they had something in common. They were outcasts and were always being bullied because they were “freaks”, but they were proud.

When Kevin died because of his illness, Max became very sad, but later on, he wrote his own book and realized that their relationship still exists, because he ended his book drawing a picture of a grave at the bottom of the lake, and on the grave, it said “Here lies King Arthur, Once and Future King”, and that King Arthur story was a symbol of Kevin. That picture was also a symbol of Kevin because at the beginning of the movie, Kevin said, “Every word is part of a picture.

In the Scarlet Letter, the role of the villain is vague and not truly defined; it seems to be left up to the reader to make their own decision. In the first three chapters we are lead to believe that the villain will be an abstract one, the prejudice of Hester Prynne’s pregnancy.

There's racial discrimination toward them, Sanaubar leaving, Hassan's harelip, and the soldiers' taunting of Hassan. We soon learn, however, that Amir has anything but a charmed existence. Amir's mother died giving birth to him. It's clear he feels a great lack in his life, and he throws himself into poetry and writing, we think, partly as a tribute to her. In addition, Amir feels an enormous amount of responsibility for his mother's death – as if he not only caused it but, more sinisterly, was responsible for it.
A Humanitarian is a person who strives to make the lives of others better than what they are. When I read that I immediately thought of both Father Kumalo and Father Msimangu. The entire movie they chased something that as the story got deeper became more and more unsure. After he found out his sister had been selling her body through prostitution he went on to find her and send her back home to where she could be safe. After finding his sister he then began the journey of finding his lost son that he had no communication with in a very extended period of time.
"The Children of the Poor" written by Mervyn Thompson in 1990 was based on a true story about John A.Lee's (Albany) 1934 autobiography about his Mother, Brother Douglas and Sister Rose. His Mother struggled to build a better future for her family, whilst his Sister sold herself on the streets and his brother stole goods for money and food. Despite the Bleak poverty that Lee lived in and the circumstances surrounding his family, education and job opportunities, he later on became a successful author, Politian and social spokesman of the New Zealand society in the 20th century. However, the text shows a "social and racial discrimination" which is shown throughout the text in contrast to discrimination in the past as well as discrimination in today’s society. The text was set in the early 1900's in Dunedin, where there were a lot of new immigrants moving within the areas of Dunedin and Christchurch.
