In writing this paper, I went back to the very beginning of our discussions, and looked at my very first discussion post on the Stonewall Uprising. I realized, that while we did do a lot of court case focused work, that I still learned a lot even outside of these cases. I wanted to post both my
little better when you’re older. A mob’s always made of people, no matter what. Mr. Cunningham was part of a mob last night, but he was still a man. Every mob in every little southern town is always made of people you know…” (pg. 157). Though this discussion Scout began to learn about the unbending prejudice of people who have been raised in a racist environment.

I went back into time to remember the very essence of her and could hear her saying, “Jimm….Jimm...take care of her.” My state of mind quickly recovered. I rummaged around what was left of my room screaming , “SAMANTHA, SAMANTHA, WHERE ARE YOU!” While I was searching for Sam, from behind me I could feel a cold, dark spirit which turned out to be a tall man, geared in all black clothing with some type of electronic gun pointed in my face.
School halfway through sophomore year, I began to think what brought me here. Here I am, a boy of 15 who went to private school his whole life and now is attending a public school, not knowing a single soul. All I could think about was, “What brought me here”. Let me take you back about a year from sophomore year. It was the day before Valentine 's Day; I remember because I got into a discussion about getting my mom Valentine’s Day flowers with my dentist.

I think the reasons for keeping the right to bear arms are so important that if the American people lost that right; it would mean life changes that many would be unwilling to make.

Entering this course, I was nervous for a couple of reasons. First, I was returning to LSU after eighteen months of time off and thought I was ill-prepared for the intellectual intensity of an honors course. Second, I was entering into a realm of academia that has always highly intrigued me, but that I never felt educated enough on to participate in.

so many times before, except this time it was different. The kid. Tony thought back, remembering everything he could, all the way to the very beginning. Lawrence Exeter Junior had been born in the heat of the day on September 2, 1903. He was different from the day he was born.

We had moved just the year before, and sixteen is still young enough that the bunch makes a difference. I had a bunch, all right, but they weren’t sure of me yet. I didn’t know why. Maybe because I’d lived in town, and my father still worked there instead of farming, like the other
the cheek and her body went numb as hell. It took everything she had in her body to keep from spitting in that bastard’s face. She kept her composure. As she was leaving Kevin told her would stop by her house later. She put on a fake smile as replied ok. Janice got in her car and drove off in a hurry. Janice went by Junior’s Burger joint and grabbed a bite to eat to pass a little time. She banked with TD Bank, which didn’t close until 7 pm. When she finished eating, she went to the bank and reported
