    The Masquerade Would you believe me if I told you that wearing a mask could save your life? For centuries slaves and captives had to mask their real feelings to survive in their new environment. They had to pretend that things were ok and life was good to survive their circumstances. While reading the books Night and Olaudah Equiano there is a reoccurring theme of being in denial and content, during their horrific experiences. Both books tell the personal and tragic stories of the captivation and enslavement of Jews (Night) and Africans (Olaudah Equiano) written by men that were taken captive themselves as children. Despite the fact that both Elie and Equiano wear masks of denial, and contentment these masks help them survive their harsh condition, as they try to obtain the ultimate goal of freedom.

    excited to get started with the voice mask. Initially, I was under the impression that getting used to and adapting to the mask would be easy. I set everything up with ease and one of the 1st things that I dictated was my Week 1 discussion post. The mask was working well with Dragon and seemed to be hearing me.

My family, my horses, a dream that I have for the future, piano, and why I have the images where they are on my mask, are all things that I take great importance in.

    Kenneth Gergen makes it really clear that he does not support the assumption that a person develops one coherent identity in the article, "In Defense of Masks."

The use of multiple identities represented by masks is used, because people seek approval from others and Gergen supports this idea with how different relationships causes one to learn more about themselves. I…
