    “Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves, for the rights of all who are destitute. Speak up and judge fairly; defend the rights of the poor and needy” quotes Proverbs 31:8-9 (New International Version, Prov. 31:8-9).

    I found the ending of Black Beauty, by Anna Sewell, to be a satisfying ending. It seemed to wrap things up nicely. After Beauty is injured and nearly overworked to death, he ends up in a beautiful home surrounded by people who care for him for the rest of his life. Although it is rather bittersweet, as the last line reminds us of everything Beauty has lost: “often, before I am quite awake, I fancy I am still in the orchard at Birtwick, standing with my old friends under the apple trees” (49.22).…

    I thought that knowing the definition would help find my character, but I feel even more perplexed. They say that you are your own worst critic, and I guess they are actually right. I don 't feel like I fit my name. I don 't resemble the picture of grace or favor. I know for a fact that my name and personality have no correlation, mostly due to the fact that I trip on stairs, wake up looking like I’m half dead, and can’t text and walk at the same time. Needless to say, my identity and name comes…
