9 March 2016 Two Birds One Stone “You never really understand a person until you consider things from his point of view – until you climb inside of his skin and walk around in it” (Lee 30). To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee is a very vigorous story about the racial discrimination that was uncontrollable in 1930’s Alabama. The small town of Maycomb is segregated into two categories: white and black. They each have their own separate neighborhoods and churches. Rarely is such racism binded with the exception of a small girl named Scout, and her father, Atticus Finch. Though slavery was over, blacks were still hired as servants and looked down upon. Black men were not to have a relationship with white women. In To Kill A Mockingbird Harper Lee presents the idea that it is important to not judge other people by their appearances through the use of symbolism and characterization.
Eliel Pepito 8/1/10 The Beak of the Finch Summary The Beak of the Finch by Jonathan Weiner explores evolution through the most famous examples in history—the finches of the Galápagos Islands. Charles Darwin’s theory of natural selection and the process of evolution are applied directly to what scientists refer to as Darwin’s Finches. Weiner follows scientists Peter and Rosemary Grant as they study the finches in real time on the Galápagos. Years of previous work, study and data is collected and analyzed. Different species of animals are observed and explained throughout history. The Grants have one goal, and that is to find the origin of the species, how organisms first began. They find that it really is about the “survival of the

It’s a bird! It’s a plane! No, it’s a bird and it doesn’t look too happy. The Birds is a classic story that takes place in Bodega Bay that is one day unexpectedly and strategically attacked by the entire bird population in the area. Alfred Hitchcock’s film, “The Birds” better utilizes suspense compared to Daphne Du Maurier’s “The Birds” because it shows the birds destruction and harm, the sudden hardship of the animal, and the use of words and angles.
I believe Hurst wrote this story to show how destructive it can be to change people. Now, change can be a good thing. However, it becomes dangerous when you attempt to change someone into something they aren't. Brother should've left Doodle how he was. Instead, he tries to change Doodle’s

They may not seem alike, but the abuse of men can be compared to the slaughter of songbirds. In the novel, To Kill a Mockingbird, three people are portrayed as mockingbirds all in different ways. Killing a mockingbird is frowned upon in Maycomb County because they do nothing but make music for others to enjoy, and do nothing to harm others in any way, but people can’t seem to make the connection between these two acts. Throughout the story, Atticus Finch, Tom Robinson, and Boo Radley are all abused for doing no harm to others, which can be compared to the act of killing a mockingbird.

A vast city sits lonely at night, where all the building’s hollow lights are turned off, except for one. Tops of buildings darken and the volume of the streets all the way below cannot be heard. A light which pierces through this darkness of landscape is shining from the 101th floor; it’s all the way up there. The building’s window seems so far away from the street that it almost belongs more to the sky than anything else. With binocular like vision, our eyes move closer. A window of an oval-like shape appears and the light shining through it is rudely obscured with fog unseen from the pedestrian’s eye. After a few seconds my eyes uncover a pigeon’s nest resting on the parapet; it’s got three eggs and no mother to warm them. Each stick of the
What was the big deal; they were boring, and dumb birds, Mary thought. She said “Bob; they made a mess all over my car!” “You should clean it!”“ You need to stop watching those birds!” Bob annoyed Mary screaming at him. He was too busy enjoying the birds flying above the calm waves of the lake. Mary got closer. She starts to swing her beautiful scarf around.
