  • Real Hero
    878 words
    He Ever Regards Others What is a hero? Is it someone that "saves the day and gets the girl?" This used to be my definition of a hero until I grew up and really learned what a hero is. The dictionary says a hero is "a man of great strength and courage, favored by the gods and in part descended from them, often regarded as a half-god and worshiped after his death". Through society though we are disillusioned to the identity of real hero's and instead praise celebrities as such. Over time though I ...

    I am going to tell you about a famous, yet kinda eerie celebration that takes place in mexico. This is a tradition celebrated by the Mexican Natives, most Mexican Americans (including myself) don't even acknowledge this day, unless they happen to be visiting mexico at the time of this event.

    586 words
    Prompt: Is James Joyce's The Dead a Lamentation of death or a celebration of life While reading the short story "The Dead", it was apparent that the story shifted from celebration to lamentation. This shift is most clearly seen with the changes in Gabriel's attitude throughout the course of the story.

As the story begins the scene is set as everyone, friends and family, are arri...
