my personal favorite story is the story of Star Wars, but not just the movie, the story of how a ragtag team of film makers made an amazing classic still alive today.

    The first goal of the movie was to help Princess Leia and deliver her droids back to her.The next goal adds onto this goal and almost acts as an obstacle for the characters. I believe the turning point for the movie is when all the rebels get in their planes and start to attack the big and powerful Death-Star which has the power to destroy the whole universe. The ships fight for a long time until Luke is the only hope of defeating the ship and saving the universe.

    In the year of 2020, all supernaturalist books were outlawed leading the authors to run away to Mars with the hopes that one day their creations will be accepted again. The censorship of these authors’ works leads to most copies being destroyed.Only a few remain keeping the creator and his creations alive.

Someone on Earth must of just burned it.” (Bradbury, 103). This eloquent metaphor illustrates that with the disappearance of your own thoughts your true self disappears along side them.…
