Put An End Lethal Injection
1,078 wordsSome people might agree with the death penalty. Families get devastated when someone they love and care about has died. Its different when that person they care so much about has been murdered or killed.

Red Riding Hood Sexual Content
867 wordsThe subject of censorship is a very controversial one, especially the banning of books. Many people believe they must protect themselves and others from the evils of many classic books and works of art because they can be deemed indecent in one way or another. Many believe that this is absurd and censorship in its current form is a violation of our First Amendment right to free speech. Personally, I align myself with the latter, however I do feel there are occasions where censorship is justifiab...

Bust Of Pallas Roman Mythology
1,307 wordsThe Meanings of the Raven Edgar Allan Poe's The Raven employs a raven itself as a symbol of the torture, mainly the self-inflicted torture, of the narrator over his lost love, Lenore.

Each year we as taxpayers pay millions of dollars for counsel...

He uses real life facts about cemeteries which make the book a little more scary. Since the novel is a honor story, if the facts were to be fictional, it would make the story unbelievable and not as scary. The soil in cemeter...
