Dear Fitzpatrick Family:

It is I, Jack Flemming, son of John Flemming. I write this letter to you because you’re family and I want to inform you of America, also to tell you how I’m doing. Since I have emigrated from Ireland five years ago I have experienced many ups and downs, mainly downs. Basically everything starts off great, and then eventually turns dreadful.

I would have never expected to experience what I did when I first arrived in Chicago. Like how knowing little English can help a lot but also get me scammed. The city was so huge and there were people everywhere. I noticed that Chicago isn’t as green as Ireland, I had trouble finding trees let alone grass. The first thing on my mind was to find a job and I heard about... View More »

I fear for my children for half the time they have to beg for food and money. We are barely getting by.

Overall, I’m doing well but not really. I hoped that I have enlightened you so you know ahead of what to expect if you decide to move to America. Maybe try a different city other than Chicago. That’s what’s new with me, much love and till next time.

Love Jack Flemming

One Street crosses itself a time or two. An artist once discovered a valuable possibility in this street. Suppose a collector with a bill for paints, paper and canvas should, in traversing this route, suddenly meet himself coming back, without a cent having been paid on account!

    William Golding, author of Lord of the Flies, believes that impatience is society’s biggest fault, while Catherine MacKinnon of the New York Times thinks that a lack of mutual respect for one another is our largest fault.

    American Identity In “Dear John Wayne” And “A Supermarket In California”

    1300 words, 6 pages

    Twentieth century authors such as Louise Erdrich and Allen Ginsberg use their skills in writing to challenge the dominant narrative of American-ness and American identity. Both authors point out the illusion that has been created of America and how this illusion was actually made from those who lead the culture. Those who fell within the margins of an ideal American constructed the dominant discourse of the country at this time. Erdrich and Ginsberg, however, discuss the issue of how America depicts itself – the “America” that exists for some does not exist for others – specifically those who

    A Geisha’s Struggle For Happiness “We human beings are only a part of something very much larger. When we walk along, we may crush a beetle or simply cause a change in the air so that a fly ends up where it might never have gone otherwise. And if we think of the same example but with ourselves in the role of the insect, and the larger universe in the role we’ve just played, it’s perfectly clear that we’re affected every day by forces over which we have no more control than the poor beetle has over our gigantic foot as it descends upon it. What are we to do? We must use whatever method

Shakespeare uses rhetoric to effectively convey the idea of fate and the struggle against it. In all three of these Shakespearian tragedies characters encounter the emotion of disbelief and the struggle to seek refuge from fate and to ultimately live life as if it were their free

Because he is probably not going to make it through this time. The makers of Herbal Essences are about to force shampoo down his throat to see what happens to its organs. Even if the cat lives through the process, they are going to have to kill it to see which organs it could have damaged. If this was an actual human going through this deadly experiment, people would be in shock. Instead, scientists
