Praise Song for the Day

Praise Song for the Day

 

Doing their tasks and accepting the fact that they had to do things that they didn’t wanted to do, and they are clinging to the idea that hope is coming. The hope is that Obama will help build that bridge to a better future. This statement is present within the poem as it displays evidence of how one works through life to create its journey towards a better life for them and others. Examples of this in the poem are shown by how the people believe that there will be an end of this hard work and that, “I know there’s something better down the road” (Line 22). Hope is created by how individuals look beyond their struggles and see that everyone involved has made some sort of impact. They worked hard to see an outcome stating, “We cross dirt roads and highways that mark the will of some one and then others, who said I need to see what’s on the other side” (Lines 19-21). They believe that a bright future starts with a capable person who can change and make it strong. Time is a thing that involves growing and healing. One can notice this and one cannot, it just depends on how the world around you is forming. A person must put in the work to be received with something they are proud of, or something they are rewarded with. Everyone puts in the work to benefit them and the society shown by “Someone is stitching up a hem, darning a hole in a uniform, patching a tire, repairing the things in need of repair” (Line 10-12). Another example shown for how they worked for the country through tasks that were a struggle to them was how, “many have died for this day. Sing the names of the dead who brought us here, who laid the train tracks, raised the bridges” (Line 24-26). People who have hope for a bright future work harder for their country and the people involved within it.

 

Silent Film Narrative Assignment

The Big Hungry Working Wolf

A wolf washes a window and sees sheep inside.

He gets excited to apply and renew his pride.

He plots his execution on how to eat the sheep.

He is approached by a worker who he isn’t happy to meet.

She shows him a new type of food.

He tries it and it changes his mood.

He makes an effort to fit in,

but the sheep still see him as a sin.

He eventually becomes a nice dude,

until he realizes he ran out of food.

He couldn’t help the smell,

And it was becoming his living hell.

The aroma took over and the sheep’s life were now a loss,

Until he came face to face with his boss.

He apprehends that he wasn’t a part of the team,

because it was all in a dream.

He realizes he lost all his friends,

and stumbles upon an office of hens.

Persuasive Essay – Pro Technology

Technology is a blessing and has done so much for our society that we would crumble without it. As one looks around, technology is strongly involved within our day to day lives, creating a world that revolves around it. As you sit at home the average person is usually doing something with technology. Whether that’s watching TV, on your phone or handheld device. Technology is a blessing due to its medical and educational purposes, making easy accessibility towards communication, and its ways of creating relationships. As the year’s progress so many amazing medical discovers have been revealed, and keep being revealed as the years go on. Datafloq.com states that, “Technology has carved out a society where patients can have better treatment, better recovery, and improved lives.” Due to technology, doctors can save millions of lives globally. Educationally, the world has become more knowledgeable from ways of using sources, to open the mindset towards enlightening oneself through technology. One can see this from how it is used within the classroom. Students have access to an incredible amount of information just at their fingertips, making work easier and more advanced with updated information. From 10 kilometers away to 5000 kilometers away, or even from the other side of the world, we are able to communicate with people just at a click of a button. Individuals can never lose touch with someone or can reach anyone whenever they want, just by picking up their phone or chatting online. From communicating with others, many new relationships are created through sources such as social media. Finding new friends or partners, just by viewing a profile that describes a person you may have never met if it wasn’t for technology. With that all said, get out there, explore the world in a different way through a screen, and become a more educated and well-connected person by the means of technology. Without technology in our lives, so many things wouldn’t be the way they were today, and so many people wouldn’t know what was happening throughout the world in such depth. Technology is a blessing, and even if you haven’t realized it, you should now.

Blackout Poem – “Death of a Salesman”

“Death of a Salesmen” purveys a theme of tragedy throughout the play. Written by the playwright author, Arthur Miller, “Death of a Salesmen” is a play about a 63-year-old salesman named Willy Loman, who is showing early signs of Alzheimer’s, which is leading him towards the lack of progress within the sales industry and damaging his relationship with his sons. Willy wants to live the American Dream but has never been able to do so, due to this, he becomes very hard on his oldest son Biff to become successful in life. The play falls in the genre of tragedy because it shows a man who has the potential for great things in his life, but with decisions not well thought of due to his state of mind, he loses so much that in some cases he won’t be able to get back. His relationship with his sons will never be the same as they used to, from the way Willy is acting towards them now and all the pressure he is bringing upon them. He is a hard-working person that is capable of success but becomes obsessive over, seeking out materialistic possessions which are all examples of how this play provides a tragic theme.

 

The project for this play was to create a blackout poem, where one finds words in a piece of literature and creates a poem by colouring out the other words. My poem relates to Willy because it shows the characteristics that he brings upon others. He shows a side of aggression when in conversation with Linda and Biff while talking about careers. He has a pure and loving side to him when he is in a healthy state of mind, but hides lots from his family. In the illustration, Willy is planting seeds beside a dead flower to symbolize how the growth of a person sometimes isn’t as successful as one would like it to be. In conclusion, this play demonstrates that trying to have everything, can make you end up with having nothing and develop bad relationships with others.
