The Perks Of Being A Wallflower - 969 words
1. I really enjoyed reading the book. I liked the way it was written pretty much. Charlie's letters are as intimate as a diary as he shares his day-to-day thoughts and feelings.

Yet there are somewhat unrealistic tones, which I noticed some time after reading the book, because my first impression was how incredibly realistic it was. Charlie is only portrayed as the nice, innocent teenager. He does some things wrong, but in the end is near perfect. Even though he is screwed up, your compassion for Charlie is overwhelming, and you seem to forget that t ...

The abuse dies in a day, but the denial slays the life of the people, and entombs the hope of the race." Bradlaugh realized the importance of restraining censorship from destroying truth. Censorship continues to be increasingly present in our everyday lives. It can be found in things such as music and even art.

Attachment Parenting - 1,307 words
Last April, a giant news story was on every news channel and was on the covers of many newspapers and magazines for weeks. This nightmare of the Columbine massacre impacted citizens across the nation. What compelled Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold, two young teenage boys, to open fire on an innocent high school, killing thirteen people and then, killing themselves? What were they thinking?
