    Island of a Thousand Mirrors One of the key transitions that drove Saraswathi’s transformation was the loss of her family at the age of sixteen. Amma, her mother, explains, “You have to go from here, my daughter. We can’t keep you with us anymore. You must go to the training camp. Learn to fight. Become a hero” (159). Saraswathi’s environment changed as she was forced to become a Tiger soldier. As Saraswathi loses her parents, she no longer has a role model to look up to. Being young and impressionable, she becomes prone to many different influences—including negative ones. Her life also changed when she accepted the leader of the Tigers as her new role mode. Saraswathi explains, “I learn about our Leader. About how he has devoted his life to our people. Without him, we would be slaves to the Sinhala...He has given us our dignity. Without him we would be nothing” (182). In the Tiger camp, she is brainwashed and becomes a war machine. She is taught to fear nothing, not even death. As she accepts this information, the Tiger camp leader becomes her new parents figure, and she is willing to obey his every command. Another key event that drove Saraswathi’s transformation was the loss of close friends. As Saraswathi and Luxshmi, her sister, are walking home they notice one of their friends father killed in the street (140). This effects Saraswathi by making her realize the toll of this war that she is growing up in. It shows her that there are two sides and she belongs to one, and…

    Critical Analysis “Rings of Saturn” is a book written differently then any book I’ve encountered. I was very hesitant to allow myself to enjoy it at the start. The novel seems to have little to no organization which can make keeping up quite a challenge until you understand this is no ordinary novel and you cannot read it as such. Constantly while reading this I found myself putting the piece together and slowly I began to understand that there was method to the madness. Kristina Ten said not…

    Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr. Just as it has been more interesting to take this class during an election year, perhaps now is also one of the most interesting times to study a Supreme Court justice. I chose John Roberts for two reasons, first, because he was a conservative and it is very likely that Donald Trump will choose a conservative justice this year. Secondly, because I thought it was interesting that he became a Supreme Court Justice at a relatively young age. I wondered, “Did he…

The question for this study is if an individual stays “clean” for a long period of time, then the chances of being arrested again would be greatly reduced. This hypothesis was…
