    risk your life? Well, in “The Man in the Water” a man sacrificed his life to save to five passengers who was in the same plane with him. He did something that not everyone can do. He continues to send the lifeline to the other passengers when he can just get on but he did something different. In the short story, “The Man in the Water”, Roger Rosenblatt shows the man’s moral courage by using irony and the man’s internal conflict that he was facing. First, the author used irony to describe moral courage. According to the author, “ Every time they lowered a lifeline and flotation ring to him, he passed it on to another of the passengers.[...] When the helicopter came back for him, the man had gone under.”(275 Rosenblatt). Everyone was expecting the man to be saved but he did not. He thinks about the passengers first before him but even though he did something right, he did not get any reward and ended up dying. The fact that he did not know that he was going to die and takes his time to save the others was ironic.…

    The Wall in the Handmaid's Tale is built right next to the church where they are both as old as a hundred years or more. The wall has sentries that will rip through anyone that tries to climb over and barbed wire on top if anyone even gets close. However, there are bodies hanging on the wall by their necks and their hands tied behind them. Atwood writes, “Sometimes, they’ll be there for days, until there’s a new batch, so as many people as possible will have the chance to see them” (Atwood 32)…

    Distraint is many things, but subtle is not one of them--something I expect Jesse Makkonen is aware of since the proverbial elephant in the room is an actual character in the game. Throughout the duration of Distraint, Jesse Makkonen relentlessly vilifies greed every chance he gets. Price's capitalist bosses, in particular, are portrayed in an exceedingly negative light. They appear cartoony in their villainy; they manically chant the virtues of money and the infallibility of the law enabling…

    conveys. Furthermore, as the keyboard plays soft notes the rhythm changes from loud to low as a feeling of impending uncertainty takes control of all emotions. This is an extremely powerful use of instrumentation and tone to instill deep seeded feelings of sadness. Towards the end of the song the tempo starts to unravel, and the last chorus begins and ends in a different way than the past two choruses throughout the song. This is to express Gilmour’s belief that life and imagination will never…

    Nothing is Needed for Something Many people judge their success on how much they have and the material possessions around them; Ernest Hemingway, however, believes people must accept they are nothing to achieve true success and happiness. Nothingness is a difficult concept for many to grasp, but it becomes more clear with age what nothingness means. People also often do not want to accept or believe they are nothing in the world. Most believe they have a specific purpose and are in some way…

    In Randy Pausch's "The Last Lecture", he uses the quote: “The brick walls are there for a reason. The brick walls are not there to keep us out. The brick walls are there to give us a chance to show how badly we want something. Because the brick walls are there to stop the people who don’t want it badly enough. They’re there to stop the other people." Randy Pausch uses symbolism to explain the significance of brick walls. Brick walls can be used to let us prove how badly we want something. He…

    was able to make it up the wall on both days without assistance, but the volunteers where awesome and very quick to offer any racers assistance if they needed help with getting up the warped wall. Once on top of the warped wall, the next obstacle was “Mount Maniac”, which was literally attached to the warped wall and was a rope net that racers climbed across. This was a cool section of the course because the rope net was suspended over the entrance to the spectator/festival area so racers where…

    The Berlin Wall, built during the cold war, was a barrier with the purpose of keeping the allies and the Soviet Union away from each other. The wall kept some Germans from seeing what was really important and helped hold the grudge the Soviets and the Allies had with each other. Although The Berlin Wall was way more severe than the barriers people set in everyday life, they both serve the same purpose, to keep people from seeing what they do not want to see. While both Lion in “Goin’ Fishin’” by…
