One of the most complex and elaborate characters in Bastard Out of Carolina by Dorothy Allison is Bone. Throughout the story Bone has to live a life where she thinks that she is the leading mystery of the trouble being caused. She has numerous unhappy situations and is in no way self-satisfied with herself. She doesn’t appreciate who she is physically. She constantly thinks she is the most homely and dull person who causes the most inconvenience in the family. This sense of selflessness is mainly due to the physical and sexual abuse brought upon by Daddy Glen, Bone’s stepfather. Unfortunately, the assaults were stretched out over a long period of time, leaving little chance for Bone to recover as an adult if any at all. I decided to take
“Let Us Now Praise Famous Men,” was written by James Agee and Walker Evans. The story is about three white families of tenant farmers in rural Alabama. The photographs in the beginning have no captions or quotations. They are just images of three tenant farming families, their houses, and possessions. “The photographs are not illustrative. They, and the text, are coequal, mutually independent, and fully collaborative.” (87) The story and the photographs contain relationships between them; in the essay I am going to inform you about the interpretations of the relationships between the readings of James Agee and some of the pictures by Walker Evans.

In the play, A Few Good Men, there is a central theme based around honor, who is doing right and who is doing wrong.

Ladies and gentleman, speaking on the behalf of the Patriots organization, it is my pleasure to introduce to you a player who will go down in history as one of the best in his lifetime, Logan Mankins. Patriots fans have been fortunate to watch #70 play eight years within this organization, playing well over 100 games within that time. Unfortunately, Logan was not able to finish out his career with this team; however, we feel it is a fitting end to his professional football career to induct him into the Patriots Hall of Fame, forever setting him within this Patriots team as well as family.
Collier County was created as one of many new counties during the 1920 land boom and was named after Barron Gift Collier-a businessman who had a vision for the growth and development of the southwestern coast of Florida. It is the state of Florida’s 62nd county and in terms of total land area, it is the third largest in the state. It is even the birthplace of swamp buggy racing. Some of the first residents arrived centuries ago after migrating farther south after the end of the last Ice Age. However, the first permanent settlers did not arrive until the 1880’s when communities started to form along the respective Naples and Immokalee territories (Collier County Museum 2017).
Every other Tuesday, the students of the Southern Nazarene University Honors Program, myself included, goes to Council Grove Elementary School and mentors First graders for an hour. My mentees names are Alex and Kyriece. Both are bright young children. Alex is a lot better at reading than Kyriece is, but Kyriece makes up for this with a memory. I would show a sight word to the two of them, and Alex will shout out the word. Kyriece would soon copy Alex, but two weeks later, Kyriece will remember the word, while Alex will go back to sounding it out again. They are both rambunctious and they love to run around and to have fun.

Grew up with little to have when he was growing up. He is gentle and kind to everyone in an equal matter. Although, he is narrow minded and biased in certain circumstances, he is also non-judgmental but rather serves as a motivational speaker to those in need.
