I was trudging across dreaded communications trench, feet and clothes damp and cold. The mud had gone hard as it was crunching under my worn out, over sized boots. I was considered lucky to even get boots. It was a narrow trench that was shared by many young and innocent soldiers who were limping to the fatal front line; I looked up into the sullen and weary eyes of a petrified soldier with curly black hair like a plate of broken noodles. His clothes were tired and filthy with a foul and putrid stench. He looked stunned and dark eyed and at that moment he limped and crawled away, so obviously had just been to the front line. At that second I jumped slightly in anxious fear as I heard rifle fire and machine-gun fire in the distance, the fear and darkness was beginning to penetrate my body. There was a crackling pop of the flares going up and lighting up the dull and rainy sky above that made my eyes aware that it was nearing afternoon. I felt extremely discomfited and miserable missing home. I was close to the front line. I heard a large boom followed by screams and then silence. I was smart enough to know what that meant. Soldiers suffered slowly and steadily. Anxious. That’s all I felt right now.
As I stumbled on, through the endless grey rain, many small black shapes emerged from the trenches. People. Some, more alive than others. Some were moving and some were not. There were dull and weary soldiers behind me that were in a line with each one holding one another, making sure they don’t fall over into the uneven, wet and soggy floor. This scene was as dull as a broken lamppost. We were at the front line. We found our dugout at last! They were small brown hallows in the front line trench. There was barbed wire at the top at the top of the trench as prickly as a black rose. There were rats everywhere! Rats in the coats, rats in the mud, rats crawling over dead de-composing bodies. Everywhere. Each one of us was yearning only for sleep then; it...
Tonight was . . . weird. Totally weird. The film was lousy, but Marcia came too, so I thought it would be better off she came along.. I hate when guys get drunk. For a start, it's totally against the law, then all the arguments, the fights(HATE FIGHTS) . . . It scares me, and if people with their knives . . . I just don't like getting involved. Neither does Marcia, much. I was watching the movie then they came. The greasers. The annoying graces, Strange greasers. Not like normal ones. They actually seemed to respect us, well most of them. They actually seemed nice. I tried to ignore him. And he got worse. That greaser dared, actually dared, to stick his feet up on my chair. And that was all I can take so I spun around to shout at him. The greaser didn't seem to care. He was getting me irritated just for fun. And he probably had a knife on him somewhere as well. I swear, it was such a relief when he got up (to buy us Cokes)and left :). Ponyboy Curtis, I thought he was real cute. An unusual and individual name. He looked younger than the other greaser. I was pretty certain I'd seen him somewhere before. He looked familiar. He's got these huge, big, black eyes.
Dally gave me a Coke. I gave it right back to him. However, instead of getting annoyed, he just laughed. Then tried to put an arm around me. But Johnny stopped him. Johnny, the one who seemed scared of everyone and...
...Brown an Irrational Terroist?” talks about whether John Brown was a hero who brought to end of slavery or terroist and murderer who uses violence. It is controversial issue that can not be firmly answered, but one thing that certain is that he played really important role on halt the slavery in United States eventhough he was murderer and insane.

Hitler’s rise to power is one that endured many struggles and life altering events.
Although Hitler did become dictator of Germany, he was not born there. Hitler was born in
Austria on April 20, 1889.1 From Hitlers first breath, his life was a struggle. During his youth
Hitler had five siblings but only one survived childhood, her name was Paula (18961960).2 The
struggles to come along with that in themselves affect a child dramatically, but that was only the
start of young Hitler's struggle.
In 1903 when Hitler was only thirteen years old, his father went for a walk into one of his
favorite inn’s and requested a glass of wine, but before it arrived he collapsed and died of a lung
hemorrhage. The loss of a father has a major impact on anyone, but this may not have been true
for Hitler. Alois (Hitler’s father) was well known for being very short tempered and for
commonly striking young Hitler. This is said to be done because Alois had an elder son from a
previous marriage who ended up in jail for theft, he was not going to allow Hitler to follow in his

Ever since the fight for the throne between my two brothers, Eteocles and Polynices, nothing has been right. They fought for the throne, but the outcome came to be that they killed each other and the throne was left to my uncle, King Creon. My uncle is a selfish man who only cares about himself and when he became king of Thebes he got to do whatever he wanted to. My uncle, King Creon, decided to have a burial for only one of my brothers, Eteocles and did not want to bury my other brother Polyneices. He gave Eteocles a soldier's funeral because he thought that was what he deserved and believed he has military honor for fighting for his kingdom. My uncle said that no one was allowed to bury Polyneices though and that “his body must lie in the fields” for the “carrion birds to find as they search for food.” My poor brother Polyneices, who fought just as hard, was looked at as a traitor in Creons eyes because “he attacked his hometown kingdom.” Once all this was issued, King Creon created an edict that forbid anyone to bury Polyneices, and if they do they will be stoned to death. He ultimately did this because he thought that he can’t bury a hero and a traitor at the same time, that would just be wrong.
As soon as I heard about this law I wanted to go talk to my sister Ismene, and see what she thinks and if she will come with me to bury him! When I went to talk to my sister Ismene, she thought that I was crazy because there was...
...to equal protection. The 15th amendment gave them the right to vote regardless of their skin color race or any other type of servitude. These amendments were meant to be enforced and make a serious change in the everyday life of the average American.
With these amendments passing in 1865 they were meant to make a serious change towards the evolution of equality. These changes did not seem to happen right away and African Americans were still not being treated with equality. The average African American at this time were being denied there newly given rights every day making life extremely hard to stay
successful in. African Americans were not being treated fairly in many different parts of the country. In these parts they were being denied necessities needed to be successful in life. They were not being given jobs cause of their color as business would not hire any black employees. Houses were withheld from paying black customers as they wouldn’t sell houses to African Americans. Public Buildings would not allow blacks inside them and if they wanted to use public transportation they would have to sit on the back of the bus or move if a white person was to request their seat. These disadvantages towards the black community came from the Jim Crow Laws that were taking place at the time. These Jim Crow laws served the...
