I think that one of my codes is trying not to judge people based of first opinions. I have based opinions on a person so many times even when I hardly know them and in the end my opinion of them usually ends up to be very wrong. I have learned that I really can’t form opinions on people until I have actually gotten to know them. Until I actually know someone I just try to think of them as a good person. A lot of the reason for this is that there are a lot of stereotypes around and we base people off of what stereotypes we see in them. So even though i’m still working on it i’m trying to stop stereotyping people by what i first see of them.
Ok here is the quote that I chose to do “Don’t fool yourselves–it’s all adding up and one of these days we’re going to pay the bill for it”. I think that this quote could work with a lot of different things. One of the things that it could apply to is climate change or the way that we treat our earth. It might not seem like a big deal now but in the future we will have to “pay the bill for it”. We should probably stop messing up our planet because this is where we all have to live unless we start living on mars and we will probably mess that up to.
I thought that the poem was fine. I guess that it has a good message but its kind of short and i kind of don’t get how it got so famous. If it is that easy to make a famous poem than I should become a poet. of course it probably has a ton of hidden meaning that I don’t understand so maybe it is better than i’m giving it credit for. This kind of reminds me of “Too Kill a Mockingbird” because they both are about racism and the black people in both of them are treated super unfairly. Overall I think that it is a good poem though.
The person that I chose to write about for this blog post is Tom Robinson. He probably feels like the whole court case thing is super unfair. Bob Ewell is a drunk, uneducated redneck that literally lives in the dump and doesn’t even have a job. Tom Robinson is respectful, clean and actually has a job. The only reason that people think that Tom Robinson might be guilty is that he is black and Bob Ewell is white. Also they should all stop bullying the guy that is missing his arm. Just send the redneck back to the dump and let Tom Robinson go home.
Ok, it has finally come to this. Here is how i’m dealing with Coronavirus: trying not to kill my siblings. They are fine to live with when i’m actually allowed to leave my house but right now they are kind of a pain. They like to screech about random stuff and fight over goldfish and Oreos and do other things. Also i’m kind of triggered that track season got canceled because this was the year that I was going to get a mile under 5:00. I guess that I could do it by myself but running by yourself is just a little bit depressing.
Ok this poem is disturbing. I understand that things were bad in the south but that poem was freaking disturbing. If poems could have ratings like movies than it would be rated R for sure. I think that it would have been awful to live in the south in that time because it sounds like a bunch of messed up stuff was happening. I feel like the police should have done more to try to stop lynchings from happening, you know that you don’t have very good cops if they just let someone walk into jail and hang the people in there.
So the quote says that Mr.Cunningham is basically a good person, he just has blind spots like the rest of us. I think that this is a really important quote because it says an important thing is life. There are a lot of good people who just have problems. I think that most people are basically good people who just have some problems. One example of this is Kylo Ren, he just gets over his blind spots by the end of the movie. I guess that there are also some people who are just all out bad but most of the people who we think are bad people just have more “blind spots” than we do. Basically everyone is a good person who just has some problems.
Real courage isn’t necessarily trying to do something even thought you know that it wont work or be successful. That is just being dumb. There is no point in doing something if you know that there is no chance of it succeeding or at least making a difference. Some times it is okay not to succeed if you learn from it and it changes what you do next time, but if you mess something up and are like “oh dang” than you do that exact same thing again and mess up again that isn’t courage, its just not learning from your mistakes.
I think that it is worth trying even if you know that you will lose because even if you lose it could still have a good effect on people. It’s like the uprising in the Warsaw ghetto in world war 2. They pretty much knew that they were all going to die but they still fought and it made a difference when the rest of the world saw what they did. A lot of the time I do the same thing, but with like arguments. I cant feel satisfied with what happens if I know that I didn’t try to make it any different.
I think that religion is usually a good thing, because it usually has good values like being nice to people and doing good stuff. There are some people that use religion as an excuse to do some pretty bad stuff like the Islamic extremists and stuff. They thought that in their religion that they would go to heaven of thy blew up two big buildings and the pentagon and the white house. For some reason I don’t think that after they died they just like saw god and he was like “good job for killing people”. Usually thought I think that religion is a good thing.
