Blacksmithing is a really intriguing job, but probably not as much at the Levi Jordan Plantation because of the physical work required as a slave.

    Mass Shooting Essay

    • 4 Pages

    We talk an awful lot about mass shootings in our society. Often used as an example in culture’s conversations on racial tension, mental health, gun control, and ‘zero-tolerance’ school policies, they are full of shock value. However, there is a detail I hear mentioned in many of these shooting cases that does not get pressed as a bigger issue. Reports often cite a shooter’s web postings as evidence of their plans, worldview, and mental and emotional states. However, what I never hear the…

    1) My first 3 thoughts are shock, anger, and compassion. I am shocked because a supposed friend of 10 years could do something so horrible like that with no hesitation. His friend shot him multiple times, beat him with the end of the shotgun, stole his belongings, and left him for dead.

    1980's Film Analysis

    • 790 Words
    • 4 Pages

    In this 1980 film cultures collide all due to a Coca-Cola bottle. The cultures represented in the movie have many things that are different between the two. Not everyone and everything is the same. Nothing is perceived as perfect or normal, even when they collide.

Due to this, people would have the ideology of them to be similar in some manner but with the environmental…

    paper I will discuss a taboo, gun laws, and how it affects the way we think. Gun laws regulate the sale, possession, and use of firearms and ammunition in the United States.

    while they faced the officers face to face. In the US, police would see themselves safe because the officers are issued a few weapons one of them being a gun. While the British police they are not given guns because of their gun restrictions. I found this to be quite a culture shock in a way because here in the US we usually see are police with their gun strapped to their hips and ready to go.

    Suicide is a topic not often broached in the political battlefield of the gun violence debate. The topic covers medical, psychological, political and ethical territory, making it difficult to come to a conclusion over. Suicide is difficult to talk about, affects tens of thousands of people and climbs higher and higher every year without an agreeable reason. A topic even less seemingly approachable is military suicide. Though neither veteran suicide nor “civilian” suicide is more glamorous a…
