    Blame refers to when a person assigns responsibility for a fault or wrong. People usually resort to blame to shift focus from themselves because they do not want to face something, and so people do not think negatively of them.

    Why Blame is Your Fault When I was in tenth grade, I was cut from my school’s soccer team. It shocked and upset me. The coach spoke to each of us individually so that those who did not make it would not feel embarrassed. The trek to the car was one of the longest 50 meters I have ever walked. Telling my friends the results of the tryout was even less rewarding. I had every reason to believe I would make the team. I had played for the freshman soccer team the year before. I was one of the…

The reason that 98% of rapists will never go to jail is because society will blame the woman for something that was not her fault. Laila and Mariam, two Afghan women who are the main characters in Hosseini’s A Thousand Suns, are victims are both sexual and physical abuse. They are brought together by traumatic events in their lives. They bond over their hatred for Rasheed, their husband.…

    on the back burner in order to take care of those we love. Eve took the blame and made a lesson out of it in the end, as we see in the very last sentence in the narrative where she says, “I would dedicate the rest of my life to committing myself to our Lord Jesus Christ, proving to Him that I am sorry and that I am worthy of walking the paths of Paradise.”. Nevertheless, Eve at one point started to question Adam’s motives for blaming her. Eve’s guilt eventually haunted her enough that she…

    In the book of Whale Done, Ken Blanchard states that people should be more willing to accentuate the positive instead of the negative. When someone achieves great success in study or work, we are supposed to praise them and give positive responses to encourage them to keep up the good work. When mistakes or errors occur, we should redirect the energy and attention to the right things without blame. It is really a good idea which could help people have a healthier relationship with not only the…

    I do not think that Solomon portrayed Columbine too softly. Columbine becomes a looming background, as does Dylan Klebolds, as the story shifts focus to the parents of the murderer. Solomon begins the article by listing fact and data from the shooting: the date, names of perpetrators, their roles, the school, and how the massacre happened. This general opening is a bit of the already known narrative surrounding Columbine. It exists to show the fact, and Solomon follows the paragraph with the…
