Addiction And Grace - 1,467 words
I think Dr. Gerald may have done a marvelous job as to the writing and format of his book Addiction and Grace. As a psychiatrist and teacher with years of experience, I totally agree with his statement that all human beings have an inborn desire of God, whether one is consciously religious or not. Some people repress this desire by intentionally or inadvertently hiding it among the many other interest of life. I have noticed frequently in my line of work as working closely with people in the health field that many individuals whether they are believers of non-believers of God, often choose to cry out in the last and most crucial moments of pain and despair "Oh God pleas help me!" As he bring ...

The Lives of Children and the Conscience of a Nation Currently there are about 600,000 people who live in the South Bronx and about 434,000 who live in Washington Heights and Harlem.

Amazing Grace - 861 words
They Cry. They Suffer. People Die. They Pray (131). Throughout Amazing Grace, a bestseller by Jonathon Kozol, I was torn between the feelings of hope and hopelessness. On one page I would be crying, on the next rejoicing. I found both despair and faith woven in the stories of the children from Harlem and the Bronx. These children, who were born into a life most of us couldnt begin to imagine, live in a constant roller coaster-type reality. There is so much danger in their lives, one has to wonder how they survive, physically and emotionally, from day to day. The hopelessness they encounter in their lives may lead to the hope they develop in their souls. Hopelessness is something that these c ...

Amazing Grace - 1,919 words
At first glance, it seems that the author is going to take us on yet another journalistic ride through the land of the poor. Similar to the ones you read about, or hear in the news. However, this is not the case; the real underlying theme is what is society doing about the plight of the poor? Kozol uses the views of children to emphasize that these reports on living conditions are not being obtained by disgruntled adults, but from innocent children whose only misfortune was being born to this particular area. The author takes us from the seventh richest congressional district in the nation (being E 59th Street in New York City) to the poorest in the nation. A mere eighteen-minute ride by sub ...

Amazing Grace - 1,785 words
Introduction Jonathan Kozol's Amazing Grace is a book about the trials and tribulations of everyday life for a group of children who live in the poorest congressional district of the United States, the South Bronx. Their lives may seem extraordinary to us, but to them, they are just as normal as everyone else. What is normal? For the children of the South Bronx, living with the pollution, the sickness, the drugs, and the violence is the only way of life many of them have ever known. In this book, the children speak openly and honestly about feeling 'abandoned', 'hidden' or 'forgotten' by our nation, one that is blind to their problems. Studying the people themselves would only get us so far ...

All Quiet On The Westren Front - 5,580 words
All Quiet on the Western Front Chapter SummaryBy: Jesse CodyAll Quiet on the Western Front is an anti-war novel from the opening chapters. Many critics of the novel in the early days after the publication of the novel blamed Remarque for writing for shock value. They did not want to believe his novel represented the truth about World War I. In many ways, such people were like Paul's schoolmaster, Kantorek. They wanted to cling to classical, romantic notions of war. However, Remarque wrote his novel specifically to shatter those idealistic illusions. Yes, he wrote to shock, but he also wrote to educate.The young teenage men who enlisted in the army on both sides often never recovered from th ...

Anne Hutchinson - 584 words
Anne Hutchinson challenged the traditional role of women in the Puritan society through her opposing religious beliefs. Anne Hutchinson was most likely not the first woman to have her own thoughts. She was simply the first to act on them. Anne Hutchinson was born on or about July17, 1591 in Alford, Licolnshire, England. She was the daughter of Reverend Francis Marbury. Rev. Marbury spoke out that many of the ordained ministers in the Church of England were unfit to guide people's souls. For this act of defiance, he was put in jail for one year. Anne read many of her father's books on theology and religion. Much of Anne's independence and willingness to speak out was due to her father's examp ...

Calvinism, John Calvin - 597 words
Since John Calvin first introduced the belief of election, it has caused debate among theologians in many Protestant churches. John Calvins beliefs consisted of five general themes. The first of the is the most important concept of understanding the beliefs of grace. Due to the fall, man, in his spiritually dead state, is unable of himself to savingly believe the Gospel. The sinner is totally dead, and cannot natural turn to the things of God, not seek Him. Man's is deceitful and desperately corrupt. Man does not have free will; it is in complete bondage to his evil and sinful nature; therefore, he will not--better yet, he cannot--choose good over evil in the spiritual realm. Due to this sta ...

Tattoos - 963 words
Tattooing has been around much longer than most people think. Most people envision natives, with tribal tattoos, or sleazy parlors on the wrong side of the tracks filled with bikers and sailors, but that's not even close to where it started. Scientists found a man, "the ice man", said to be the oldest man ever found intact that dated to the prehistoric era, and he had tattoos. And there were also the Egyptians who were masterful tattooists. Usually only the upper class, priests and priestesses had tattoos. The women wore tattoos on their bellies to ensure fertility, and many of the priestesses were heavily tattooed, especially on the face. In the years of the Roman Empire tattooing was almos ...

Michelengelo - 1,867 words
The Italian Michelangelo Buonarotti, almost certainly the most famous artist produced by Western civilization and arguably the greatest, is universally viewed as the supreme Renaissance artist (see Renaissance art and architecture). He created monumental works of painting, sculpture, and architecture and left an additional legacy of numerous letters and poems. Through this vast and multifaceted body of artistic achievement, Michelangelo made an indelible imprint on the Western imagination. A member of an old and distinguished Florentine family, Michelangelo was born near Arezzo, Italy, on Mar. 6, 1475, and he died on Feb. 18, 1564, in Rome--a record of longevity that was as unusual as his pr ...

Lord Of The Flys - 1,974 words
In his classic novel, Lord of the Flies, William Golding utilizes many elements of symbolism to help accomplish his motif, which is "man is basically evil." Symbolism can be anything, a person, place or thing, used to portray something beyond itself. It is used to represent or foreshadow the conclusion of the story. As one reads this novel, he or she will begin to recognize the way basic civilization is slowly stripped away from the boys. Let us know look closer at the ways Golding uses this form of symbolism. From the very beginning of the story the boys inwardly strip themselves of the remnants of the basic civilized world. This is shown when the boys shed their clothes; their school sweat ...

Yukio Mishima - 750 words
I read a novella with a collection of three stories by Yukio Mishima. The first story was called The Sailor Who Fell From Grace With The Sea, the second was called The Temple of the Golden Pavilion, and the third was Confessions of a Mask. I would enjoy talking about each of these books individually, however I have far too little room for discussions of a such a great feat of writing. Instead I will point out the under lying themes that manifest themselves in each story very clearly. The most prominent and head motif was of the hero myth. Every culture honors a form of hero, and although not many realize that heroes are not always people hero myths often fall onto the shoulders of leaders wh ...
