  • Person's True Authority
    668 words
    Today's society is composed of a country built on the Constitution, which is governed by laws, justice in these laws and authority. Authority holds precedence in any situation; the policeman upholding the law, the judge administering justice, the common citizen being law abiding. However, true authority is not constituted by a diploma, an appointment, or a title, it is earned by respect, honor and integrity. All of which are misused, and misunderstood, in the The Crucible. Authority can be a mea...

  • My Feelings Toward The Story
    413 words
    I enjoyed reading this short story. It was written in a suspenseful way as each member of the family was taken away into the woods while the grandmother conversed with the Misfit.

I was baffled by the comment made by the Misfit in reference to the grandmother at the end in which he states, "She would have b...
  • Odessa Permian High School Football Team
    825 words
    Friday Night Lights is a remarkable book. Having come from a small town where the local high school football team was also state champions during the late eighties and early nineties this book caught my attention right away.

What makes this book important is the work the author did of putting everything together. He not only highlights the times when ec...
