Marcus isn’t hard to convince. They perform several successful stickups at a parking lot. Eddie holds the gun and threatens their victims, while Marcus is on the lookout. They already have enough money to pay their dues, but neither of them wants to quit. It is such an easy way to earn money, and they are tired of feeling like charity cases. Their next stickup doesn’t go according to the plan. It is Marcus’s turn to hold the gun and take care of the threatening, but he doesn’t want to because of his lack of practice. Marcus and Eddie are at their usual spot in the parking lot, and target a man coming out of a store. They don’t notice that the man is black before Eddie starts to threaten him. Before he knows it, he has shot him and the boys are running for their lives.

Securing his palms to the edges of two uneven holds about a foot off the ground, he strained up and back, shifting more and more weight onto his outstretched legs, lifting higher, to the highest position his grip would allow, the pain smoldering in his back, until his left palm slipped off the wall and he fell, catching himself with a backwards slide of his right foot, able somehow to support him now.

Sammy Clay, a man stuck in an era of developing trials filled with errors and binding contracts, sleeving over the borders of scams, finds himself growing up in a undistinguished neighborhood in a city called New York. Now by all means, it is not necessary to definitively state in what exact part of New York he was situated in, but the impact his neighborhood had on him. New York, itself, is a state that has a rich history and has flourished and in retrospect, has swallowed and spit out some of the most interesting people to walk the Earth. It has been the home of many women’s and men’s failures and successes. In an era of rebirth, both in terms of comics and international affairs laid the cusp of uncertainty that accompanied refugees fleeing from Hitler’s regime and lucrative markets and
We held onto only a single bodyguard. I reconnected with old friends, and dedicated my life to work and volunteering. My children were all truly happy in their careers. All of them joined me at the clinic. My young grand children were living completely normal lives and making great friends. One night I was feeling a bit tired, so I decided to head home early. I said goodbye to my daughter the clinic manager, and then I was on my way. I walked about two blocks before I realized I was being followed. The suburban streets were dark and deserted, so I ran into an ally trying to escape. The young man eventually found me. I recognized the young man; he was the son of a local butcher, a butcher who was killed by my father for an unpaid debt. He shakily pulled out a revolver. “For my father, I’m sorry,” he said and then proceeded to shoot me. I crumpled to the ground, but I did not make a sound. I had known this day would come. I deserved this. I knew I would have to pay for my crimes and the crime of my ancestors. My mind went to my family. They would never face this fate, or be a part of this madness. I had liberated them from their past. I after 200 years of Iladio crime had offered my children and future generations a chance to escape, a chance at peace, freedom, and
Manhood defines according to Merriam-Webster dictionary as the state or condition of being an adult man and no longer a boy. In addition, manhood can be understood as the capacity of a man to handle a difficult situation. However, some people believe that manhood comes through action rather than material possessions. By comparing the different paths to manhood taken by Frederick Douglass in “Resurrection” and Dave Saunders in “The Man Who Was Almost a Man,” readers come to understand that manhood comes through actions rather than what one possesses.
