Since I can remember, my earliest memories were of me visiting the animals at the zoo, returning lost dogs to their owners and nursing dropped nestlings to health with my mom. My grandpa loved to take my brother and me to the Minnesota Zoo, and I loved to visit my favorite Eastern Lowland gorilla, Spike. The first time I visited with my grandpa and we went to the ape's section and that’s where I found who we call “my first boyfriend” Spike. When I ran up to the glass to get a closer look, he turned his head, waited for a second and then ran as fast as he could towards me and banged on the glass. One of the scariest moments, but that’s the day I looked at my grandpa and said: “I want to get him and all of his friends out of here”. Another memory that often crosses my mind is the
Kaykay Zhu October 19, 2017 The Autobiography of Malcolm X as told to Alex Haley is an account of Malcolm X’s evolving perspective on racial justice. Malcolm X was a prominent figure in the Nation of Islam who advocated for black nationalism and separatism. The man who became one of America’s most powerful voices for African Americans was deeply affected by the terrors of racism, which shaped his view of social justice and the condemnation of the white man. The way Malcolm X narrates his experiences changes as his views on race change. At first, he wants readers to feel the destructiveness of racism, so he conveys his experiences through provocative language. When he aims to promote universal peace, he takes on a more optimistic tone. As a
“Hey, boss, where you want these papers? Spent all day on ‘em and I sure hope they aren’t going to waste.” There Trent was, waving his newly typed report in front of Heath’s face. Trent was the vice-president of the company, and the only person Heath would allow to do such a thing, but right now Heath didn’t even care. His stomach ached, and he remembered back two months when he had been shot by Shawn.
My family had just moved in the summer of 2013, that meant I’d be going to a different middle school. I was in the Gresham district now, so that meant that I had to go to Clear Creek middle school. Both my sisters went there, most of the teachers knew me because of them. I’d go to all their band concerts and the parent-teacher conferences. I hated the fact that i had to switch schools. I just want to stay at Walt Morey with all my friends and because I was playing football for reynolds. It made no sense to me at the time because Walt Morey was closer to me house than Clear Creek was. I begged my mom everyday to let me go to Walt Morey and she’d always say no. Then registration day came, I was forced to go but I guess it was alright. There were a few familiar faces, but I hated the

Style, language, structure, and technique all contribute to the understanding of any piece of literature. James Baldwin’s memoir, a type of autobiography recounts the emotional details of his father’s funeral. The overall theme shows how people may behave in a reckless manner in a lifetime, but a poison will take over and kill people. The theme also gives examples of how many people suffer while neighbors remain clueless and should not judge. Baldwin’s style and language, contribute to the understanding of the text because the adjectives capture the attention of the readers, and the long sentences reveal the tone and mood of the narrative.
I was born on December 26, 1970. That’s right, I was a 70’s baby and being a Seventies baby means that I was there when Black folk started benefiting from Civil Rights. My mother was working for the state of Michigan as a secretary and my father was working at Chrysler before he got fired for selling weed and then at Ford. We lived in an apartment on Collingwood and then an upstairs flat on Clairmount before we moved to the northwest side in 1976. Growing up in the Seventies, we were poor. Yes, I had two working parents but it was tough making ends meet. That said, we survived because we made do with what we had. Fast forwards years later when we were living on Seven Mile, we really caught hell. Bills weren’t getting paid so things like the

There are a number of reasons why I joined TKE, but the main reason was brotherhood. While rushing I saw how close everyone was, and while pledging I got an even deeper insight into that sense of family. I personally love that sense of having someone there to not only watch my back, but to support me in whatever I do. Brothers, who help me up when I get knocked down. Brothers, who I can honestly and whole heartedly say that I would take a bullet for them and who in reverse would do the same for me. Through pledging alone, I’ve already gotten not only my pledge class, but even members who have supported me and have told me never to give up. As many members have already said to me, the grass is greener on the other side. I’ve learned and grown
“Bucky”. It was the name he had always known, the name that meant more to him than anything else in the world. The name that could heal all of his wounds or even bring him back to life. The name he had promised to never forget and to love no matter what. It was the name of his first love and, without doubt, his last.
