As I began to hear the testimony, I recalled all the various wars that have created us into what we are today. Brother against brother, kings that ruled the land, and dictators that overtook anything they desired. Survivors from various disasters have had a chance to let others hear and feel what they have gone through when they were younger like us. Cesia Kingston, one of the many survivors of the disastrous Holocaust, shares her many experiences throughout her life. Some too precious to forget, but others filled with pain and sorrow. Through every word Cesia spoke, they filled my thoughts like a wave, but at the same moment I remembered the times when pain and fear overtook me.
In “Work” by Dennis Johnson, it is a story about the author and his friend, Wayne, trying to gain money by doing a rescue job. However, it turns out that the Wayne brought the author to Wayne’s house and his wife. I did not like the story; however, some of the contexts of the story can help with writing my own story. The story has a characterization of Wayne through dialogue. For example, the narrator and Wayne were drinking at the Vine and Wayne said “’How would you feel about making some money’? he asked me… ‘I decided’ he said, ‘in my mind, to take some money…’ ‘Come with me,’ he begged” (Johnson 56). Through the dialogue, Wayne is the type of person that decides/ take leadership in their jobs. The narrator just follows what Wayne says.

The law enforcement personnel poured out of the stairwells into the halls and ran past Jackson sitting quietly in a chair at the nurses’ station. Colonel Patterson stopped immediately when he saw Jackson covered in blood, looking like death warmed over with a blood covered Mac-10 in his lap. He was pale, sweat soaked and the entire left side of his body was coated in blood as it dripped down his left arm and pooled on the floor underneath him. He was slumping in the chair and having a lot of trouble breathing. It was obvious he was bleeding to death and needed immediate medical attention. Jackson MacKenzie had given this situation every ounce of his strength

Years had passed since his longtime friend, Sam died. Jake had managed to move on, get married to his girl and raise a family. He had taken his degree and although he had never managed to become president of a large company, he had used it to have a successful and rewarding career. It was a warm sunny summer day; Jake long since retired entered the local discount store. He entered the store in hurry; his gate now awkward and somewhat stooped over from age. His arms swung back and forth as he rushed toward the isle, which held the prize he was after, as though it was to be his last chance to retrieve the item. Without warning his quest was interrupted as he collided with a mass directly in front of him. Nearly knocking the bystander to the floor Jake apologized. “Sorry, I guess I was in to much of a hurry; Grandchildren don’t like Gramps to keep them waiting.” Suddenly Jake was staring directly into the eyes of the person he had collided with. He realized that it was a man with thin, graying hair about his age. There was an air of familiarity about him and as Jake proceeded to leave
