Writing from a different perspective

Writing form a different perspective chapter – 15

My dad just had just left I did not know where he was going. It made me even more suspicious because he took the care which was really strange because he only uses the car to go to work in different parts of Alabama. He always went walking to work and did everything by walking because is why I was son uncomfortable.  As I was putting my pants to go follow Atticus Scout came into my room she asked “Where are you going Jem” I said i was going to go downtown.

Some time had passed and we saw Atticus at the jail Scout and Dill where with me. Everything was going ok when I heard the sound of 3 loud engines. They started getting closer. I saw pull up at the jail where Atticus was I was really worried for him and I did not know what to do.  The men all got out of the car and all of a sudden Atticus stopped reading his book. I wondered if Tom Robinson was there and if that was the reason these men had come. I felt worried that this men were going to do something to Atticus but I decided not to step in because Atticus would be angry at me after the whole event. I decided no to step in but I was worried for Atticus my palms were sweaty.

Scout,Dill and I were hiding and closely watching what was going on in the jail. Scout did not feel safe for Atticus. She decided to run to him I did not know what was going through her mind. I don’t think that she realized how dangerous the situation was. We tried to stop her but she had a lead on us and she ran straight to Atticus. Dill and I immediately ran after her we found her with Atticus and the rest of the men. This made me feel even more worried.  Atticus looked at us and told us to leave because something was about to happen. I did not wan to listen to my dad because I was going to be worried for him when I leave because I would have no clue what those men were going to do to Atticus. Atticus told me several times to leave I started crying I was desperate not to leave my father alone with those drunk men. I did not know what there intentions were.

Something bad was going to happen until Scout decided to step him. Scout started talking to Walter Cunningham because she recognized him . She started talking about all weird stuff about things that happened some time ago like she mentioned when she beat up her son at school and how she remembered when we had his son over for dinner. Scout did just enough to spook Walter Cunningham and him and his gang were gone. Atticus was relieved because he thought that something really bad was going to happen and that we would be in a dangerous situation.  Atticus was the opposite of angry at us and me he was just relieved he got out of that trouble. All of this time Atticus was taking care of Tom Robinson who was in the jail worried sick. Thanks to scout we got out of that awful mess we were in and she did it just by talking to Walter Cunningham.

 

Readers Response

I think that there can be fights you can have friends that you don’t remain friends with them, but I also think it depends how close you re to them. If I had a fight with my best friend after some time we would both apologize and be friends again. it also depends on how big the fight is and about what the fight is because if it is a small fight it is much easier to get over it. It is obviously more complicated if it is a bigger fight. I do think if you are arguing about something big than maybe you could not be friends anymore. For me it all depends on how big the fight is and if both friends still want to be friends after their fight.

 

These fights are usually some fights that take more importance and usually these fights are the ones you have with your best friends because you can not be best friends if you have never fought. These are the type of fights that take importance to you. These are the type of fights that you disagree with your friend about something because it is important and you think the other person does not understand it. These fights are the ones that are more important because it s about keeping your friendship and if you say something to harmful to your friend than you have less chance to be friends with them again.

 

Atticus says this because he is doing his job of protecting one of his clients, but other people see ti as an offense because he is defending a black person which at that time it was not normal for a black person to receive a trial. He says it wont break any friendship because this is just a trial and it is part of his job so he is not going to loose friends just because of his job. His friendship last more than his job because he is not going to loose a friendship for a trial.  So I don’t think Atticus will loose any friends if he defends a black person.

 

When I see my friends and my family members express something that I find abhorrent I usually tell them to stop and it also depends which person said something abhorrent. If it one of my family members it is usually easier to tell them to stop because they are your family and you have known them for a longer period time so it is easier for me to tell them to stop. If it with a friend it is harder because they wont take my advice as seriously as one of my family members because they don’t really take your advice seriously because it does not have any importance to them. I would respond to them by telling them they should not do that but it is up to them to listen to my advice or not.

Biloxi School Mockingbird

gettyimages-1160952

In the Biloxi school district which is located in Mississippi the book To Kill a Mockingbird,The book which is part of America’s great known literature and famous author Harper Lee has been banned due to inappropriate reasons. There were many complaints from parents when they heard that the book got banned. The school board voted against the book to get banned but it still got banned . Some of the reasons why it got banned because it said some students felt uncomfortable reading and saying the N which is a racist term.

 

What still amazes me is that the majority of the school board voted against the banning of the book but for some the reason the book still got banned . There a lot of complaints. I if I had to deal with the situation I would have public vote on the students to see how they feel about reading the book and I would also ask the parents if they are ok for the children to read these types of books. I would definitely do that because I would know that parents are going to complain so this vote would decide to keep the book. I would also do that because I know if I would ban the book I would get a lot of question so my evidence would be that the parents were not okay with their children reading the book.

 

The school said that they could teach the kids other ways to learn than to use the book which has some strong content and language. Members on the board said that they did not vote to ban the book they said it was a decision taken by the administrative board. They also said they could teach the lesson than with different books. They also said that the school got a lot of complaints . The school said that the book is still in the library but it has been ruled out of the 8 eighth grade curriculum. The reader said that it is one of the most disturbing examples he has ever heard.

 

Some of the students got really offended when they had to read some racist part of the book and that is one of the main reasons why the school decided to ban the book. Parents complained to the school for banning the book. The school said they had other resources to teach students than using the book. The school does not want them to read the book because it had to do with rape,racism and things like that.

 

In conclusion I think that the school did not do a very good job on advertising the public on the banning of the book because they were a lot of complaints and I feel that people should get the chance to vote on whether they want to keep the book or not and students should be able to take this vote because students should be able to feel comfortable in reading a book or not because they are  reading it.

Words on Wednesday – Renovate

About 5 years ago we wanted to move to a bigger house in Rome because we were

looking for a bigger flat. We wanted to get a bigger house because we were looking

for more space. It took some time for my parents to find a new house but we finally

found one. The flat we got had three bedrooms . My parents renovated the house a

lot. They changed were the bedrooms were, they almost change the whole style of

the house. While we were renovating the flat I saw everything and they were

starting to renovate the house. They were bricks on the floor and there was cement

everywhere. After we moved in there was a big problem

 

There was a serious problem with our bathroom it always got blocked which meant

whenever someone tried going to the bathroom you could not flush the toilet.

This was a big problem we spend a lot of time renovating this bathroom.

After the flat was done we could only live there for a little bit of time

because we had to move to Zimbabwe
