“Only those who look with the eyes of children can lose themselves in the object of their wonder,” (E.A. 2015, pg. 6-18). Throughout our adolescent stage, many of us struggle to adhere to our parent rules and regulations, especially when it pertains to selecting friends who will have our best interest at heart. At least for me, during my teenage period, I thought if another teenage was kind to me, then she was automatically my friend. Declining to listen my parent’s assessment of some of those females, caused me to suffer unnecessary heartaches and embarrassments. For the reason that I had trouble listening, as well as refusing to listen to suggestions and demands made by my parents to dissolve certain friendships, only created uncomfortable and hostile environments between schoolmates who I thought were my friends, but who my parents warned me against. I believe it is fair to say that if I had followed the advice given to me by my parents, I would have had a happier junior high friend relationship experience. Unfortunately, I was too critical of the speakers who had my best interest at heart. Every time my parents spoke to me about how they felt regarding my choice of friends, I would block their words out, and accuse them of being too critical of people, without getting to know the people in which they were judging. With all the advice relayed to me through the wisdom of my parents’ knowledge, I found myself relaying that same advice to my younger sibling for the betterment of choices she made for friends. But, while I was still young, it was impossible for me to see the forest for the trees. Instead I was not focusing on the care and love transferred to me by my parent’s warnings, I was more interested in refusing to hear the messages and more interested in criticizing the messengers. Therefore, I would have to say that I was during that time in my life both a relational and analytical listener. Like shared in the text I will tend to focus on the facts, consider all sides of the conversation before me making conclusions; and be more expressive and emotional, by empathizing with the speaker. In this case my emotions were negative towards my parents and more influential toward my friends I would empathize with them more because I was criticizing my parents for making false assumptions of them. Both barriers contributed a whole lot in my inability to listen effectively to my parents because I had to learn the hard way. I gave more credibility to a complete stranger than to the two people who had been there since day one, watching me every step by being my protectors of all good and bad decisions. Learning to accept your falls and your bad decisions is indeed
credibility and the sense of confidence by using examples that everyday people in society can relate to. For example Britney Spears “An hour after Britney Spears gets hooked to her next husband, the federal government will shower her with all sorts of rights and benefits not available to the man who has spent eight years caring for a mother with Alzheimer’s.” (Harrop 675). This ethos appeal helps the author because everyone knows Britney Spears and it allows Harrop to show the readers that it’s

But every religion, while designating older religions as idolatrous, looks upon itself as exempted from their fate. It does so necessarily, for otherwise it would no longer be religion; it sees only in other religions what is the fault – if a fault it can be called – of religion as such.

book also introduces Pcola because she had to come stay with this family as well because she had nowhere else to go right then. Their house caught fire and they had to send her somewhere for a bit. This is a great start to the book because it introduces the main character while still showing how a normal childhood in this time should be.

Works of public art can also articulate the mission of municipal departments where artworks are sited, memorialize a shared history, and/or express aspirations for the future. Public art created through a public process - in the context of time and location - by its very nature becomes a historical record of the community.
Public artworks may be permanent, temporary, integral to buildings and landscapes, designed
misunderstanding between the racial differences of white and black little girls. Claudia uses some mild anger to describe how “the big, the special, the loving gift was always a big, blue-eyed Baby Doll” (Morrison 21). The reference to blue eyes indicates an awareness of the importance of blue eyes and how it’s defined as beautiful. Claudia refuses to accept the idea that this is what represented beauty; it angered her that this and only those who looked like this could be identified as beautiful. In

the government sells.
To conclude, the government can’t have control over something that they put out there for Americans to purchase. It should be, but, it’s not because everything we have bought or have comes from the government. They are going control who can legally purchase a gun and the ones that can’t purchase them are still going to have access to the guns with or without the control of the government. All in all, if a person is illegally purchasing firearms for whatever reasons

Those Winter Sundays
In the poem Those Winter Sundays, Robert Hayden talks about a boy's dad that does not get enough appreciation for what he does everyday. Unfortunately sometimes families are forced into hard situations in life barely keeping their head above water. During these times there can be someone in your family that is doing an abundance amount of work but is not being recognized. The poem is written with a topic of appreciation, theme of love, and a dreary tone.
