When Jennings was just a kid at the age of 8 years old he was put into his first foster home. He wasn’t told anything by anyone, but his mom promised that she would “be right back”. Jennings didn’t know where he was or what to do so when he didn’t follow one of the many commands that the foster home had established, he was punished, he was abused. Jennings was waiting for his mom to pick him up that same day but she didn’t show up. He was waiting for her everyday for months until she was finally there to pick him up. The foster system didn’t care to even look for a new home for him or the other kids, they didn’t care. They didn’t even try to reconnect Jennings or any of the other kids with their families, the government

Beatty says, "We must all be alike. Not everyone born free and equal, as the Constitution says, but everyone made equal. Each man the image of every other; then all are happy, for there are no mountains to make them cower, to judge themselves against. So! A book is a loaded gun in the house next door. Burn it. Take the shot from the weapon" (Bradbury 58). This shows how the people in this society thought they were protecting themselves from being depressed. As the bomber jets flew over the city, its occupants stayed unaware and uncaring. In their own minds everything was alright because they were being sheltered from reality. Beatty states, “Peace, Montag. Give the people contests they win by remembering the words to more popular songs or the names of state capitals or how much corn Iowa grew last year. Cram them full of noncombustible data, chock them so damned full of ‘facts’ they feel stuffed, absolutely ‘brilliant’ with information” (Bradbury 61). In doing this the people are satisfied with their lives, thinking they are knowledgeable and understand how society functions. Having this false sense of security could potentially create an outbreak of questioning within the

If someone were to ever tell my younger self that I would one day be one of five siblings, I would have never believed them. Unquestionably, my siblings are an enormous part of who I am; aspiring me to become an intelligent and an affectionate human being. Life doesn't always hurl obstacles in your way, but when it does, it can turn out to be completely disparate and even fascinating from the original thought. At the ripe old age of eleven years old, I was expected to step up to the plate and take care of my new adopted siblings, David and Alysa. Countless responsibilities, circumstances, and a world of authority and gratitude have shaped me along the way due to that one event. Indeed, I am grateful that my parents went through with the adoption because even though I had an impact on my adopted siblings, they have propelled me to become an exceptional brother, son, friend, and student.

Belonging and alienation is the process of being either excluded or accepted by the society in which you live. Belong is a human conception,mostly considered a fundamental human need and a source of survival, safety, protection and happiness. To belong is usually considered positive and essential for a successful existence:however a negative sense of belonging:found among the displaced, marginalised and uncared for can lead to many social, filial and personal problems that can be almost insurmountable for the individual. The short trop fest film “Be My Brother” by Genevieve Clay 2009, represents these ideas through the films central characters. The film deals with society and people with disabilities feeling displaced within society due to
The Department of homeland Security (DHS) is a body responsible for maintaining the security and safety of the United States from attack by terrorists and other possible disasters. DHS was created after the attack by terrorists on 11th September 2001 and it has immensely focused on federal preparations of dealing with terrorism while at the same time trying to manage other important duty which includes ensuring security of the borders and taking part in customs and emergency management practices. Even with all these it is doing, the department has not escaped from accusation for having a fixation on terrorism which has resulted in substantial criticism and controversy, which also contains accusations of violating civil liberties (Perl 2004).
The DHS has received $41.2 billion just in 2016 (Hanley 1). However, no amount of spending could actually make Americans feel safer. Even with the amount of money the DHS has received, the attention that they are actually giving this situation lacks. The attentions between each agency is varied after the attacks of 9/11 (May 7). Which results in different outcomes on handling terrorist attacks. During a panel appearance, panelists have stated that “Americans are wasting money looking for a magic bullet and funding programs that previous experience shows don’t work” (Hanley 15). During a panel interview Michael German, a former FBI agent, acknowledges the fact that there are terrorists out there who are always one step ahead and sometimes it doesn’t help to be just invested in money but the quality of analyzing the terrorists. There are better ways to deal with terrorism and the first step is for the DHS to fully give their attention to stopping these terrorist attacks. Giving attention to the situation will conclude in how things are getting done by the DHS. Opinions throughout the agencies are distinctive; however, working together is a still a key to making the process work. After 9/11 there were many people who worked for the government and coped with the situation differently but in the end the solution to the
