Imagine living in a world that had no rules, no limits, and no worry. This was the life of a young man who was soon to heir the throne of England. In Henry IV, part 1 by William Shakespeare, Prince Hal, the immature two-faced cowerd is waiting for his father King Henry IV's time as king to end, in order to take the throne. Prince Hal goes on throughout his life being a rascal and abusing the power that comes by position. Hal uses his persuasive gestures to show people how good of a person he seems to be but in reality, he is a sneaky little scoundrel that is just tricking people. Not only does Hal fool people, but he also is a heavy drinker and a thief who is robbing travelers whenever he can which only brings dishonor to his family. The pompous and ignorant Prince Hal is certainly a man who will never change. Prince Hal convinces people that he has changed by using manipulating words and actions to lure them into his trap. In fact, in act 5 scene 4 Hal says this to Falstaff, "For my part, if a lie may do thee grace, I'll gild it with the happiest terms I have" (5.4.161-162). Hal is stating that it is perfectly normal to lie as long as it does good in the end. The prince is once again showing his immaturity and lack of of responsibility towards his fellow people. As a matter of fact, Hal is also proved a liar when Falstaff shouts at Prince Hal and says "Whew! A plague upon you all! Give me my horse, you rogues; give me my horse, and be hanged!" (2.2.59). Jack is confronting Hal about his horse being stolen, and Hal simply acts like he has no idea what is going on. This was all part of a snarky idea to mess with Jack Falstaff by stealing his horse and hiding it in the woods. In addition, in the beginning of act 3 scene 3, Hal conveys to Hotspur "I am good friends with my Father and may do anything." (3.3.192-193). Prince Hal is declaring his "right" to do whatever he wants just because of his father's role in society. Prince Hal is a two faced, shallow, and mischievous man who will never change. The devious Prince Hal exemplifies a great dishonor by utilizing his incorrigible ways against his friends. In fact, while at a local tavern in England, Hal proves his arrogance when he says this to Poins, "Sirrah, I am sworn brother to a leash of drawers; and can call them all by their christen names, as Tom, Dick, and Francis. They take it already upon their salvation, that though I be but the prince of Wales, yet I am king of courtesy; and tell me flatly I am no proud Jack, like Falstaff, but Corinthian, a lad of mettle, a good boy, by the Lord, so they call me, and when I am king of England, I shall command all the good lads in Eastcheap." (2.4.498-500). Hal is aexplaining how he is going to be the absolute greatest king that England has ever had. Once again the sadistic Prince Hal shows his true feelings towards his friends and acquaintances when he asks Falstaff

people are not my source of influence. I look for a more personal connection with someone I actually know for inspiration; not some person or celebrity that I have seen on T.V. or read about in a book, because who really knows what famous people do or have gone through in their lives. Inspiration and admiration comes from my heart. I look to people who have made a difference in my life and that I know on a personal level. One person who has and continues to greatly influence my life is my grandfather…

Fighting the Equality Battle
From the end of slavery through the 1960s, there has been discrimination throughout the

they were superior to blacks.
Desegregation in the community during this time was harsh,
especially for the black population. In schools, black and white children were separated, which
gave the black children the…

Day My Daddy Left Me”
My dad had been sick for a very long time; the doctors told us he was sick for about a year or two, but the week before he went into the hospital was the worst thing for us ever. He was sick the entire week; he had to call out of work. He had always said, “It hurts to move, my chest is hurting really bad. Jeannie, will you go in my bathroom and get my inhaler? Natalie, will you call your mom and get her to go to the store and get me some medicine, please?” My dad was my hero;…
