Quotation: ” i hated being too small to protect my family , i wished i could wake up the next day at eighteen and take advantage as a soldier. As an adult , i’d never once used a gun or knife or my fist. i was afraid of what i might do . But now i didn’t care if i was outnumbered . i finished my last sip of beer.i picked up the empty bottle,ready to brake it on the table and use the jagged edge as a weapon. My brain told me to simmer down , not to do anything that could destroy the nice world i’d manage to rebuild here.”
Deconstructionism is showed throughout many ways.Using signifiers such as symbols,words, and colors.are a way to interpret the text. For example the word “small” in the text refers to kenan as being a young boy who hated not being able to protect his family during the war. kenan uses the word “advantage” to describe the way he wanted to be superior to penalize all the damage the “soldiers” who were supposed to protect the country. Instead of accomplishing that the soldiers terrorized their own people as well as kenan’s beloved family. Another thing he explains is the word “weapon” this signifies protection in away but also danger. In this case kenan was trying to use the weapon of a broken bottle with the intention of killing a Serb because of his built up rage . “simmer down” explains how he was still conscious of the actions he wanted to take before taking the initiative. Kenan also describes the word “destroy” as something catastrophic because everything he had built like his home and career could extinguish in a second of rage, and he did not want to loose the materialistic things he had accomplished . After his country ,home, and family was devastated.
In the story, shooting An Elephant, by George Orwell believes that “all issues are political.” Throughout the story he describes internal as well as external conflicts that Orwell deals with in making the verdict if to assassinate the elephant. The nonpolitical issue that this story reveals are the expectations as a subdivisional police officer as well as being anti-European. Orwell states” i was hated by large numbers of people – the only time my life that i have been important enough for this to happen to me (p.1). He explains the controversial issue of being a white man in India how people hate and are racist to your color or culture. The political issue in this story is of a imperialism government in Burma were there is superiority race are the British. Orwell explains how he does not take part of any side saying ” i had already made up my mind that imperialism was an evil thing and the sooner i chucked up my job and got out of it the better (p. 2).” The beyond political issue in this story is the peer pressure and racial dilemma the author faces unsure of wanting to murder the elephant . Orwell describes the peer pressure he faces by saying “the crowd would laugh at me. And my whole life, every white man’s life in the East, was one long struggle not to be laughed at (p.7).” This means that there was a racial dilemma throughout the story because he was a white European and he decided to murder the elephant because of the peer pressure he faced . Instead of having self worth on what he knew was right he became like his own government a “tyrant of his own freedom which he destroyed” (P.7) by ignoring his morals. The worst thing about all these political issues that all of us face is that Orwell become a fool because the people used him for their own satisfaction. Then again he was still looked like a fool for shooting the elephant . Orwell stayed the same ordinary person instead of being praised he became a puppet to the government he served which he hated . Nothing changed the government still hated him.
In Tillie Olsen’s narrative “I Stand Here Ironing”, seems to reflect political views about social conditions in which her family as well as the narrator were affected during World War 1. The story unfolds as the mother receives a phone call of a person that the author does not clarify who he or she is concerned about the well-being of her daughter Emily. This phone call reminds her mother how the oldest of her children Emily was mostly impacted throughout her childhood as well as adulthood life because she became ill. The narrator frankly states the guilt that she carries because of her lack of attention towards Emily. In the other hand, the author also reveals that as a single mother of five; it was not easy to give equal attention to all of her children since she had to work most of the time to provide for her children.
The first major social condition that lead to the illness of Emily was poverty. Coming from a low -income household and rarely having time to see her mother impacted her life deeply. The Narrator states when she says “She was a miracle to me, but when she was eight months old I had to leave her daytimes with the women downstairs to whom she was not a miracle at all, for I worked or looked for work and for Emily’s father, who “could no longer endure” (he wrote his good-bye note) sharing want with us (93).” This reveals to me that once the mother of Emily was left by her father she had no option but to leave her with a care taker. That affected Emily because she felt the neglect of both parents. Her father abandoned her only eight months old and her mother would leave her with a stranger and it hurt her emotionally as she grew up and resented her mother for the circumstances in which she was raised. Another factor of the social conditions that affected Emily society because people viewed her as an outcast. For example teachers viewed her as “to her overworked and exasperate teachers she was an over conscientious “slow learner”… (96).” At some point in the story she was distressed about her appearance herself. The narrator reveals when she says “she fretted about her appearance, thin and dark and foreign –looking at a time when every little girl was supposed to look or thought she should look a chubby blonde replica of Shirley Temple (95).” This has still not changed in society now there are a very good amount of single mothers out there that have to work and rarely see their children. In the other hand, it was way harder to raise five children back during World War 1 that it is now because mothers get the opportunity to apply to welfare and food stamps. The narrator had no choice but to work to provide for all of her children but as well she should have tried to give her daughter the attention that she needed because she showed symptoms of neglect since she was young.

There are many rare diseases in our world, some that are cured with treatment and others that are incurable. Creutzfeldt-Jacob Disease is a rare brain disorder also known as (CJD). Although, this disease is not found at a young age it can appear on you or loved ones adulthood life. As the NIH article explains “This disease is very uncommon it affects about 1 person in every 1million people per year.” Yes it is very rare but also very harmful. “Symptoms occur from age 60 and 90% of the individuals die within a year”, the disease fact sheet informs in the NIH website. CJD can be similar to other neurological disorders such as Alzheimer’s but this disease tends to cause more rapid growth without any control. Opiate drugs can relieve pain to make patients suffering decrease. This disease cannot be transmitted through air, touch, or other forms of casual contact. There are 3 major categories of CJD. First, Sporadic CJD person has a family history of the disease or tests positive for genetic behavior. Second, Hereditary CJD disease appears even though the person has no known risk factors for disease. Finally, Acquired CJD it can be transmitted by exposure to the brain or nervous system tissue, usually by medical procedures. CJD “belong to a family of human and animal diseases known as transmissible spongiform (TSE)” explains the website of NIH .Spongiform refers to a characteristic appearance of infected brains, which become filled with holes until they resemble sponges under microscope. It is commonly found in cows referred to as “mad cow” disease also affects goats, sheep, cats, and other exotic zoo animals. The National Institute of Neurological Disorders explains process ” In the early stages of disease people may have failing memory, behavioral changes, lack of coordination, blindness, and weakness of extremities”. May also, experience insomnia, depression, and unusual sensations. They eventually go blind lose the ability to move, speak, and enter comma. If other infections occur this can lead to death. The only way the doctors can conform diagnosis of disease is by brain biopsy or autopsy. Biopsy can be risky for the individual because the medical examiner does not always obtain tissue from affected part of brain. In the other hand an autopsy would be better because it is after death and the whole brain is examined. Everyone should be aware of this disease because anyone can experience this disease or lose someone you love from this disease. Hope this information helped anyone out there who has someone suffering from this disease to understand it better or learn something about it.

Jones town Massacre was one of the most infamous crimes that lead to the deaths of innocent people. Jim Jones was a drug addict who preached about impending a “nuclear apocalypse” founded “The Peoples Temple” in 1956. This church association was focused on helping racially integrated people in the community. Originally established in Indiana, but then moved to Redwood Valley California in 1966. People in congregation admired Jones and assumed he was going to change the way African American people were being treated, but they were incorrect. Everything changed after ex members of the people’s temple reported injustices in an interview, which was going to be published for everyone to be informed. That same day he decided to flee the country with the people who agreed to follow him. It was in his convenience to leave before he got caught in all the trickery he committed. The congregation and Jones moved to Guyana in South America in 1974. Jones deceived the people by explaining to them that he had found the perfect place for them without unfair treatment. This was a lie they lived in crowded cabins with different families separated by gender. Worked up to 11 hours a day. People were getting sick because of bad hygiene, where not allowed to leave surrounded by the jungle. Congressman Ryan and crew decide to pay a visit to Jones town with some worried family members to make sure everything was fine. The crew and congressman arrive safely and dine with the church and Jones everything was going great until a member of the crew receives a note stating the names of the people that wanted to leave Jones town. Next day before leaving Ryan announces who else will decide to leave. When one of Jones men attacks Congressman trying to murder him by cutting his throat. He knew he and other people were in danger and obligated to stay against their will so he and his crew decided to leave. They get ambushed by armed men controlled by Jones killed congressman and news reporter dead, the others severely injured. Fearful of what was going to happen to him Jones decides to have a meeting brainwashing 918 innocent people into committing suicide. Fear was consuming him and told everyone that the U.S was going to send people to torture children and them for the death of the congressman. There was people that questioned what Jones said were true, but they were forced to drink the deathly drink or be shot. Jones gave everyone to drink a grape flavored drink that contained cyanide and Valium people died within 5 minutes of drinking it mothers were forced to give it to their children. Jones was found dead, gunshot in the head which was said it was suicide. The only people that survived that day where the ones who hid inside the cabin or ran towards the jungle. Some people take advantage of the submission of others to persuade them to do tragic actions.
