Book: The Color Purple by Alice Walker
By: Williams, Alex, Kevin, Karim
In our first podcast, We talked about the how the author opens up the book, also she brings up the point that the father was abusing her and she went into details and this already gives the reader on what they are going to read about. we also speak on the grammar, at the person who is writing is trying to point out that the person was not that smart and we can soon tell that she is really not that smart since her fathers points it out to the reader and to her as well.
The Impact Parents Have On Their Child?
“I am your father. Behave yourself. Stop being difficult with your grandma.” As you can see the parents are making sure to show there kid from right and wrong by telling them what they have to do. they also show them the love and making the baby know that they will always be there no matter what. You also see the mother making eye contact with her kids and husband to show that she is also showing love to them both. Parents are also the most brain in the relationship because sons and daughters would go ask them for any help because that’s what you really want to ask because they might know better from right and wrong and that can show their kids from the best and and learn what’s wrong. Kids always want what they want but parents might have another idea to teach their kids that it might be very bad and wrong to do that. The father would always be with their kids 100% even if they are wrong but they oust also teach them what is was that made them do the wrong thing. The police do not do anything. Some of them are even in on it.” This can tell you that the cops can’t even be trusted and this makes it harder because you won’t have no one to look up to, or call for help, they would just not care and keep going. This is where the father or mother shows up and tell his son that this world is. It what you really think or see, this world makes see what it wants you to see and to show you that it’s about that and it won’t change your mind. It also says that cops are in it and that can be a problem because they have more power than the people so they can do whatever they want and you can’t do anything about. This can also tell you that the police in this country are more powerful just because they can pull over people and this have no rights, and this can be worse for them because they can get killed just because they wanted to make a point. This is where a father has to take out of his time to show and go give the details to their sons to show them that not everything should be about the cops and talking with them for anything and that he should call his dad if it not that bad. People in this world do whatever they want because of the freedom and chance we have. But the father we have to show them the ways and guide them to a better place and mind set that it’s not like people that are born in a rich family that means that you will be rich and your kids and if you are born in a poor family that means you will have the same job and the same amount of money so it’s hard to tell and you can’t do anything about that because that’s the rule. But you can make your own choices and make it better and that’s what a father should say to their child because if they want the best for them they would do anything and whatever it takes. People would try to move to a better place but the problem is if you didn’t go to school and collator would be hard to find a job that would make you a lot of money so it can be the same but at the same time it can be a better life and freedom for your kids and their kids to come. So father would do whatever it takes so that the son or daughter learn from good and bad and a child needs a father in the pic so that can show that they can also be man and learn from the father from what’s good and bad. Something that does not make sense to child or a son or daughter even if it’s something that they have never seen before and that can make them overthink it or want to know more about it. They would always ask the father because that’s how life is and mother for things that are not the big because they might make a big deal about it and they father might not. This world has a lot of things to find out and for most people they don’t want to find out about it because that can cause them big problems or killed so that’s why you should always ask a father that is in the pic and ask hey do you think this is a good idea or a bad idea so that you can learn from them and their past mistakes. You should stay with what you got or ask around for help. In Conclusion, parents are the ones that keep you in check and teach you the ways on what is wrong and what is right. You might like the choices they give you or what they tell you to do but what you have to know is that they want what is best for you and your life.

My goal for this essay was to make it the best I could. I had to overcome my fears about this story and share it. My other goal is to share it with the class to see how people feel about it. I’m proud that I really worked on it out of school and that shows how much this means to me. I wanted to tell this story to put out there , that things might be real even if you don’t see it. One thing that can help me improve on my writing is to ask for help and ask for people to read it as well, because if people read it, they can give me feedback.
When I was in 7 grade I would always watch movies and shows about ghosts but I knew that it was fake or that it was made up like cartoons. I would make jokes about it over and over. My dad would tell me that there was a ghost in our house so that I should stop playing. So because I was a kid I didn’t believe him. I kept playing around about the ghost until the day I heard my sister telling my dad that there was something in the basement that pulled her hair. I started to overthink this way too much and tried to find a way on how can this can be real. So I said to myself, they might be playing because this just can’t be real, but something hit me and said to myself they think I’m sleeping in the backroom so that must not know. I also heard my mom talking to both of them about it, something that my mother does not play around is about dead people so that made me believe them even more. All the events are happening in the basement from what I heard, and that’s where I play video games and play down there for hours so why haven’t I noticed anything, I told myself. I would hear movements upstairs but I would not mind it because it was someone upstairs moving. Until the basement door open and close behind me at least 4 times, but I didn’t give it any mind. I turn around on the 4th time and no one was there to open the door and close it, I went upstairs to check if any of my family was downstairs trying to play around with me. When I checked upstairs I asked everyone if they were downstairs and they all said ‘’No.’’ A week has passed and I heard my mom telling my dad that ‘’something closed the door on her and she said it was like someone breathing on her face. She also said that no one was in the house but her.’’ I had a gaming setup in the basement so I would be the one that would be downstairs the most, and that means I would have a higher risk of being hurt from this thing. I wanted to move my gaming setup so fast but my dad said ‘’that there is nowhere to put it so it does not have a setup or stay downstairs.’’ I would feel like someone is breathing behind my back but I would try not to think about too much because I didn’t want to go crazy because of something that is not real. I would try my best every day to not look back because it would make me go crazy and overthink it. I didn’t think of it that much because it didn’t harm my family or me yet so I would try to overcome it and forget about it.
I got some feedback saying that I would have to learn to change it up and not talk about the same thing over and over because you told us to talk about something else. I also got told that my writing was good but I will give to learn to put bigger words to make seem like a pro. I will have to learn to remember that it’s a story so it can sound like I’m writing at the period. I also got asked to learn to re-read it learn from my mistakes so that I can look at what I might have missed and that needs to be added so that the story can make sense, or that it would look way better. Something that I noticed is that my group used the same words and that makes it more notable and tells me what they want us to know about their work. Ethan also told me that I would have to put hints in there to give the readers an idea If the theme and what the story is trying to tell the readers.
What I’m trying to point out is that everyone has a problem in their house and if you can do anything you can do to stop it or to get away from it, you should, because it can get even worse for you and the people around you. How we make sense of things that we don’t know about. This can happen to people all over the world and people would not care or pay good action to it until it happens and people should try to learn about this because if you move and something is there, you might have a problem. Movies and shows are fake but they get it from real life and make it into entertainment and that is not good because this might be happening to people.

Fear is something that everyone has, but it's not always rational. People often hear things that influence their mindset, causing them to overthink and make their fear stronger than it was in the first place. In Golding's novel, the idea of a mythical ´beast’ instilled fear into the boys of the island. They used the idea the beast to entertain themselves. Fear is something that everyone inevitably feels, but In ´Lord of the Flies´ they chose to have it.
Cops are known for pulling over people at traffic stops, and they would give the people tickets or they wouldn't, but in this case, there were no tickets envoy. The cops were reportedly trying to figure out if the passenger had a restraining order against the driver of the vehicle. The passenger that was 61 years old, named Paul Askins, would give his name or date of birth to the police officers and this made the cops worry and he was asked to step out of the vehicle. “This is how he engaged us," said the police officers. Paul Askins pulled out a pistol and fired at the cops, this caused the cops to fire back as they fear for their lives. As you can see this quote is telling us that the cops had a clear view of what was happening and with the fear of death the cops step back and fired as soon as they could. The cops weren't injured but the fear of death was what made them act as quick as possible, Paul askins was injured but he did survive.
As the kids were planning the kill the beast, their was feared in their eyes because they didn’t know what they were going up against and this made them feel weak. They had to bring hope to everyone in the island so that they had a chance to live. To bring hope they started to say ‘’Kill the beast! Cut his throat! Spill his blood!’’(152). This quote is trying to show that the kids are trying to show that they are no longer scared of the beast. This is what brings hope to the kids in the island and to show that they have a chance to kill the beast and that they have hope to live for years to come without a problem. When Simon finds out the beast was not real, he tries to worn the rest of the kids, but when he got to the kids they thought he was the beast and that got him killed. The kids were scared and didn't even think because the fear took controller over them, so they acted as fast as they could.
In both of the book and real life example you can see that there is fear when the believe something is real and when they see someone pull out a weapon. They have fear no matter what but they choose to have it at this time, which made them over think over and over on what to do, this shows that they didn’t want to have fear they choose to have it so that they can be saved. In the Lord of the files, the kids thought they found a beast and they were thinking of what could it be and this is what Ralph said. ‘’But that’s littluns talk. We’ll get that straight. So the last part, the bit we can talk about, is kind of deciding on the fear’’(82). When the old man got out of the truck this is what the cops started saying. ‘’ Get down, Get down’’. This show that that the kids had to show fear to overcome what that fear was and that is what made them stronger and what to keep that fear alway. When the cops said to get down they were trying to show that they can be save and to not try something stupid that will get them killed.
Towards the end of the book, Rock, Ralph, and piggy ventured into jack’s territory protesting that it wasn’t right for them to take piggy’s glasses. While they demand them to give it back, jack didn’t care and said no, and gets called a thief and reacted violently. Jack swung his spear at Ralph, but not in a menacing manner. In the quote, ‘’By common consent, they were using the spears as sabers now, no longer daring the lethal point’’ (177). This is to use that they have power over people and that the kids should have fear for them because they have the weapon. They really don’t want to hurt one another, but the fear of losing power and scared of someone can cause them to fight.
In conclusion, The lord of the flies tells us what fear is like if you were alone with kids and no adults. Lord of the flies shows us that fear can bring power to kid, and they can’t do anything but just to go with it before it’s to late. Lord of the flies show that kids need to learn to not be scared and to face your fears because if you don’t that can get you killed. Fear is something that people would never love to have because there are problems that come with it, but you have to choose it because fear can save you from all the problems that can come your way. Fear is something that everyone inevitably feels, but In ´Lord of the Flies´ they chose to have it.

I can’t believe my boys lied to me. all this fall, there was this one girl that I was in love with and all I wanted to do was to ask her out. On tuesday my lunch period is on my third period so, when I got my lunch I want to the room that me and my ex friends would go to hang out and have fun, right when I walked in the class they started to tell me ‘’ yo Maria likes you man.’’
I started to get red and believing what they are where telling me, so I walked to one of her friends after lunch was over and asked her, ‘’can I ask you something and you won’t tell Maria please,’’ she just started to ask me questions like ‘’why are you trying to talk about her in a bad way.’’ No I said, I would never but those Maria have feelings for me, she started to laugh, No she said, Maria likes someone in another class.
After that day I never talked to them, I would lie to them that I had to do homework so I didn’t have to hang out with them. This want by for years and they tried to talk to me but I was just to mad. This was two weeks ago now they think everything is ok, just wait and see what i’m going to expose them for what they have done to me.
[Talking to the phone]
Why does everyone have to lie, why do friends have to lie about something that was not true. This friends lied to me 2 weeks ago and it was not funny because they made me believe that, Maria didn’t really liked me and I will never forgive them for it. Maria never had feeling for me and she never will, so why did they have to play with my feeling like that and making me believe them just because I trusted them. All I'm saying is don't you ever text me back and Maria, yes I liked you and I'm sorry for not telling you like a man but it was just I was scared to hear your answer and that made me scared.
Wait this guys are texting me again, why can't they just leave me alone and accept that I'm still mad for what they have done to me. I started to text each one of them to fuck off and leave me alone forever, but they kept texting me back that Maria really did like me. I text back, if Maria really did like me why did her friend said that Maria didn't like me and they were best friends. They would text back, Maria probably didn't tell her because she liked to talk to much and she didn't want you to know probably.
Look guys just leave me alone please, Maria friend told me already that she didn't liked me so just leave me alone. They kept saying ok but Maria told us that she did like you and if she didn't why are you taking this to heart and just leave it alone and hang out with us. Look man I have Homework to do.
[text message buzz]
Wait. It’s Maria. She says… what? She wants to go to the dance with me?
After the dance I said sorry to all of my friends and they didn’t want to accept but after a week everything want back to the way it was and had a girlfriend.
