  • Time And Many People
    330 words
    A Look Back on the Great Depression of 1936 The Great Depression was a time of tremendous poverty and deprivation. It put many hard-working men and women out of their jobs and sources of income. It left many wholesome, decent, families out on the street, homeless; their pride and dignity stripped of them. Many people would be left to starve, without money to buy food or pay for shelter. Some people even turned against their own friends so that they could support their families. Many became obliv...

    875 words
    Review of Waiting for the Weekend In the opening chapter of Waiting for the Weekend, Witold Rybczynski analyzes free time. He explains the notion of five and two, and how the weekend is the most coveted time of the week. He explains how the weekend is more of a break from the regular week than free time.

  • People Need
    548 words
    As Benjamin Franklin once said "A people who would trade liberty for security deserve neither". I totally agree in that we as the people of the United States should not ask for greater safety at the price of liberty. I feel that the government does not have the power to limit our First Amendment rights. The people of this country hold the power and politicians are merely their puppets. These leaders can ask for all kinds of authority during a time like this but all it would take is a string back...

  • Famous People

    "To Be Great Is To Be Misunderstood" The quote that I chose for this essay is " To be great is to be misunderstood". I agree with this quote, and I believe that it applies to many people's lives. This quote, as I interpreted it, means that if you want to be a great at what you do you might be misunderstood sometimes. This quote applies to many famous people.

  • Business World
    941 words
    I am more than what meets the eye. There is only a certain part of me that people observe and judge me by in my everyday life.

In one hand I have my books that I 'attempted' to read for homework the previous night and my other hand is holding on to my Sony metallic cd player for my bus ride to school.

  • Shakespeare's Venice
    1,347 words
    A Product of Society? It is hard to determine whether or not Shakespearean comedy is clearly a product of Elizabethan courtly society. It can be said that the answer to that question is both yes and no. It is apparent in The Merchant of Venice that Shakespeare's writing was strongly influenced by the society surrounding him, while A Midsummer Night's Dream is much less realistic and so original that one might think Shakespeare came from another time period all together. In The Merchant of Venice...

My body managed to turn despite the complete lack of motion. I reached for the place that my cover had resided, finding nothing but my left leg. Screams of my name swept through my head, consuming the islands of sleep wi...
