Touchstone anthology of contemporary creative nonfiction

...Generally, by comparing the two pieces of writing, I can conclude that they portray the same message but in a different manner and style because both stories focuses heavily on the conceit of war and violence in relation to the society.

Best War Ever

...Teens were getting into trouble cutting school and joining gangs. It was hard for schools to maintain a strong education among the youth and so a decline in intellectual quality began in young Americans.

Lord of the Flies (Men are inherently evil)

...Despite being first published fifty years ago, Lord of the Flies is still studied and read to this day as it shows that it is brutality of the second world war. Golding subtly passes through his message that what happened in Germany could occur anywhere and that sometimes, it is necessary to be evil. Throughout the novel, we see the lengths some of them, in particular Jack, go to for survival. We are shown that it is necessary to pursue evil acts in ‘life or death’ situations and that it is ...

World Dangers

...In conclusion, these are just some of the dangers that we face, and they prove that this world is an increasingly dangerous place. We don’t know when misfortune may befall us so we have to be cautious all the time.

The decline in general health standards and fast passed living riddled with increased crime and corruption are concerning factors. All these things I have indicat...

Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet

...Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet did a good job at alternating between telling the story at adolescent Henry's war years with his later life in 1986. The author manages to tell the story of the Japanese evacuation, of the struggles between generations in immigrant families, and of the friendship that later turned into love between Henry and Keiko. This book also tells an important story, that of the internment of Japanese-Americans during World War II and it was heartbreaking to watch Kei...

Causes and Consequences of Hitler becoming Fuhrer

...Hitler taking power had negative consequences on the whole world, due to his changes in foreign policy.

Much Ado About Nothing - Theme of Deception

...Deception plays a huge role in the plot of Much Ado About Nothing, from the major dramas of Don John and Claudio’s love to the duping that led to the bringing together of Benedick and Beatrice.

In conclusion, people who are loved are more valued than being feared. Whether people are of a high authority or just a common citizen, it is better for people to be loved than feared.

...The events that Anne frank describes in her diary are very important. The passages in her diary portray discrimination in its purest form. The diary shows the prejudice and discrimination that millions of Jews underwent. It shows to the rest of the world how people can act.

It shows how one person’s beliefs can be passed on to an entire ...

Summary of Churchill's Iron Curtain speech and Stalin's election Speech

...The difference in that Stalin uses his way of speech as a command while Churchill uses his as more of a suggestion. They both address foreign policies of their countries and discuss war.

Annexation of Hawaii

...American racism also rallied against acquiring "yellow-skinned" America's desire to extend its economic influence to the Far East through opening up trade with China led to yet another diplomatic confrontation.

...Today's fully functional democratic countries include Spain, Portugal, Greece, etc which were once ruled by dictators and only turned into democracies after homegrown movements and the politically instable countries include Iraq, Afghanistan, Egypt, etc where democracy was imposed.

Prose Appreciation "The Fly" By Katherine Mansfield

...The photo, while not mentioned as much, represents the innocence the young men had, and then lost in their first year of war. The things they had to do and see robbed them of the boyish innocence they went in with. “The expression was unnatural. It was cold, even stern-looking.” They all were changed by the horrendous happenings that they had to bear witness too. Overall this story sends out a message that everyone has their own way to grieve and everyone will spend different amounts of time...

On keeping a Notebook by Joan Didion

...I know and remember the phrase “Those who forget the past are doomed to repeat it” and those are words to live by. But for society in general I believe that it should be written down and it is and it is called history. I don’t know who the author is but he or she has been writing it down since man first invented the wheel or a little bit after it, because we have no idea who invented the wheel. But if we remember the past we hope we won’t repeat it, or we will repeat the black plaque, th...

Graduation speeches

...As I begin, I have to say, I think the best speeches are those that have a great beginning, a memorable end, and not much in between. I will try then to make a great speech. Today is one of those great occasions when we get to celebrate our young people – their achievements, their perseverance and their successes as they grow up. It’s one of the times you can take a break and reflect, feeling good as a parent or a mentor, knowing that the kids you care about are doing just fine and they’re...

Womens Role in WW1

Duck and Cover

...Comparing the threat nuclear war to the threat of terrorism today is different in many was in that terrorism has many different faces.

Technology ha...

The Book Thief by Markus Zusak

...“Her feet heavier than they had ever been before, heart swelling in her chest, she stepped onto the road.” Zusak uses this act to show that sometimes the pull of love is far stronger than the fear of any punishment. The second event is when after the war, Liesel is working in a shop and a man comes in looking for her. She comes out and sees Max and in the words of Death “They both fell to the floor, and hugged and cried.” Through the narration of Death, Zusak shows us that Max somehow m...

Samuel P. Huntington's Clash of Civilizations

...These influences allow an insight to better understand a threat. There is a difference between understanding and accepting a culture or religion.

The United States and China have an economic potential for macro lever conflict. On the other hand the United States and North Korea have a military potential for m...

Cultural Diffusion, Space-Time Compression and the Limitations on Spatial Interaction

...In turn, this “lewdness” has led members of society with different sexual orientations to look at the gay community as a negative aspect of modern humanity, impeding spatial interaction between the two.

Due to the advancements in transportation, the soldiers of World War...

My Reaction Paper About the Movie: the King's Speech

...That's why we see many kids who overcome problems in childhood, like dyslexia, A.D.H.D., anxiety disorders, go on to accomplish extraordinary things. They have developed a tremendous courage.
