In Sandra Cisneros’s short story “Eleven”, Rachel’s emotions were negatively affected by the events of her birthday. First, Rachel’s experience brought her to feel a little less joyful about her eleventh birthday. The text states, “I finally say in a little voice” (Cisneros, 2).

Another way the events of Rachel’s eleventh birthday affect her emotional state is, when she starts to cry over the sweater (Cisneros, 3). Possibly she may be depressed.

Finally I have escaped. I was critical about escaping at first but now I know that it was the right choice to make. I escaped with Mary Ingles, a fellow captive.

Mary and I escaped because they let us go out into the woods to forage

RACES ESSAY Rachel acts more like a child than a tween. It's Rachel's birthday and turning 11 but I don't think she wants to be. Rachel acts like child than a tween.

Hi Addison, You are right privacy is important and with all the protest Apple users have done is evidence on just how important it is. I haven't seemed any polls, yet about Facebook and Twitter users supporting Apple in its decision. I think that's very interesting if that's true.
