  • Presentations And The Discussion Sections
    574 words
    Due to a conflict in my schedule, I was not able to stay and listen to the presentation last week, so I decided to concentrate on the book that we were assigned to buy and read because I feel as though we have not talked collectively about the ideas presented in the written work.

Ishmael In the past few centuries there have been a handful of books written that offer up ideas about humanity that are so completely new to a reader but are so completely convincing that they can force a reader to take a step back and assess all that they know to be true about their life and their purpose.

Most people against literary censorship act with what they beleive to be highest cause: protecting their families as well as their communities from evil. They see that they are preserving the values that the the entire society should take in to a...

    "Blow from the South. The wind leaves no trail. Throw sand from the East to distract him. Blow, blow, blow. He cannot see. He is blind now.
