Bayard Rustin. To some, a name to be remembered. To some a name never heard. “I never learned that Bayard Rustin was the chief organizer of the 1963 March on Washington where Dr. King gave his historic ‘I Have a Dream’ speech” (Hatch). In a letter to African American people of faith Equality California, the local leg of the Human Rights Campaign cited the power of teaching the contributions of LGBT figures as means of preventing the bullying of LGBT students.

The point of my essay is to prove that Perry Smith does not deserve the death penalty but he deserves to be admitted to a psychiatric ward. For example, "'Most typically the men displayed a tendency not to experience anger or rage in association with violent aggressive action.”(Capote Page 190). That is one piece of evidence out of many that will help explain how sick Perry Smith really is.
Robert Desmarais is no ordinary caretaker, living as he does in a ghost town 8200 feet above sea level. He is also an historian, story teller, geologist, chemist and licensed blaster. He speaks of the people who inhabited this place as if he’d known them all personally, which due to the eerie nature of this town, he might well have. Robert is in the process of putting together a book on the history of the town. Hopefully it will be available before long, as just the few stories he told us made me want to learn more.
The elections for state representative in 2002 in the hometown of former President Lyndon Baines Johnson in Texas was disputed by two white young candidates that had different perspectives and way of doing politics in the district 45. They were the incumbent republican Rick Green and his adversary that was the freshman democratic Patrick Rose. The republic Rick Green is a charismatic conservative Christian and talented speaker who was not born as Texan but "Rick Green’s family moved to Wylie, Texas, when he was ten years old, so he is not a native Texan but did grow up in the state" ( P.O.V.). He is an attorney and graduated in Law from the University of Texas Law School. He also is a businessman and "He founded a talent agency and video production company with TV sales of over $500,000. He also started and ran a nutritional supplement company, building and training a national sales force with over 2,500 representatives to achieve nearly $3,000,000 in retail sales" ( P.O.V.). By that time Green was very confident in winning the elections since his district 45 was solidly republican and he was a prominent conservative who had already experienced a seat in the House of representative.

While reading the poems “Richard Cory” and “Ezra Farmer”, it is almost immediately evident which poem is an original and which is a parody. Both poems are clearly about men that are popular among those he meets, but once the reader looks beneath the surface, they notice how the diction plays an important role in relaying the theme to the audience it is presented to. In the poem “Richard Cory” written by Edwin Arlington Robinson, the theme being portrayed is that people are not always as how they seem.
One of the most remarkable stories is the one of John Norman. He was a deputy chief of the New York City fire department. He was asleep whenever the first tower of the World Trade Center was hit. He had turned off the ringer on his phone because he was on vacation from work. His plan that day was to sleep in. He was completely unaware of what was going on outside.

It took him and hour and a half just to get to the city and where he needed to be. He was put in shock whenever

Lawrence Roberts is the antagonist which is the opposing force. At the beginning of the passage he was a cold-hearted harsh man. For instance he saw Miguel Diaz eating a bagel earlier in the week and assumes he was lethargic and gluttonous. The passage also specified that Lawrence relished firing him.
