In March 1857, one of the most controversial events preceding the Civil War occurred. Dred Scott, and his wife had once belonged to army surgeon John Emerson, who bought him from the Peter Blow family of St. Louis. After Emerson died, the Blows apparently helped Scott sue Emerson’s widow for his freedom, but lost the case in state court. Which was because Mrs. Emerson left him with her brother John Sanford. Whose name was misspelled in court papers. He was a New York citizen. Scott sued again in federal court, claiming Missouri citizenship. Scott’s lawyers eventually appealed to the U.S. Supreme Court.
So, Marlowe Stroker (my 15 year old daughter) looks over at me today while watching the news and replay of Trump's (Billy Bush) talk about women and she says, "Are you voting for him?" No, I am not...but, I cannot vote for Hillary, so I will write in Pence's name when I vote. Hillary may win but I cannot vote for either of them. To me,they are both on the level of egotistical, narcissistic and bigoted jerks. Either way, we as a country do not win. However, I will have taken a stand, a very small stand for my daughter and her future, which is so much better than generations before

On Wednesday August 31st 2016 in North Muskegon Michigan, Brittany Miller and six year old son Granderson went shopping at a local grocery store. As they made their way up and down each individual isle Granderson suddenly began making high pitched screeching sounds. Just as some other autistic individuals, Granderson is more sensitive to sound. Therefore as a coping mechanism, Granderson often will imitate the sound of a fire alarm to help him deal with the overwhelming sounds and noise. Miller explains shortly after her son began to display this behavior it was only a few brief moments afterward, that she turned around to find a note that was placed upon her bag that read: “You need to buy that kid a muzzle!!”. His mother expresses that she
I disagree with Ryder because in a way she is a villain. Abigail did so many things that put her family, friends, and others in danger. Abigail: Abigail lied to everyone so that she wouldn’t get in trouble but later on did. She also made her friends lie. “Now look you. All of you. We danced.” Abigail has done so many wrong things. She got Tituba in trouble, Elizabeth Proctor chained and thrown in jail, and John Proctor hanged. She told Hale that Tituba made her drank blood. “She made me do it! She made Betty do it! She makes me drank blood!” Elizabeth Proctor had to testify against her own husband.
Gwilan, the washwoman, and Johnsy all face physical and emotional hardships in the stories. After many years, the wrist that Gwilan broke in the cart crash develops arthritis; later, her husband, Torm, dies. The washwoman works an obviously strenuous job, but she also faces old age and ill health. At the same time, her son neglects her out of shame when his wealth could give her rest and security. Johnsy comes down with pneumonia and is overcome with depression. But all of these woman triumph over their troubles. Gwilan sings with new hope, the washwoman delivers her load and eventually joins her Savior in heaven, and Johnsy shakes herself out of her misery and recovers.
Love is not just a word but an action. This statement is very self-explanatory in most cases. Like in The Crucible, John Proctor is the tragic hero of this play, in which his wife and many others fall victim to false allegations of witchcraft in Salem, Massachusetts. John Proctor was terribly
The time when an adolescent begins to grow up is when they begin to enter the real world and have their own experiences. This stage is one of the most important stages because of the knowledge and dedication needed to graduate into adulthood. In Walker Percy’s essay, “The Loss of the Creature”, he has the reader critically think about what we are to learn from our experiences and how we go about learning from those experiences. David Updike’s “Summer” connects to Percy’s essay by showing multiple examples of Homer and his friends maturing through their experiences. As adolescents, they must finish their summer while encountering adult situations. David Updike and Walker Percy’s essays state that an adolescent should undergo experiences in their own way to finalize this stage of their lives.
As the president of United Liberty, it is my job to ensure that I make the correct decision during war with the opposing country, Gertany. The choices that confront me are 1) blow up the weapons factory, 2) to not blow up the weapons factory, and 3) try to reach a peace treaty.
