What Booker Washington’s Thought of the Slave Trade

“What were Washington’s arguments against the slave system?”
Booker did not like or approve of the slave system, not only because he was born into slavery, but because he thought that every person deserves to have their freedom and rights. Freedom to choose whatever they want to do with their lives, whenever and wherever they want, but still obeying the laws of the place, and take the consequences of their decision. Like the analogy of the stick, “If you pick up one end of the stick, you pick up the other”. Choice is one end of the stick, and the Consequence(s) is the other end of the stick. Every person should have their own right to do whatever they want to do, having the freedom to pick and choose without it being forced on them.
A slave does not have complete true freedom, but they have rights that NO person can take away, rights that our God in heaven gave us when he created us human beings and that is our Agency. And Agency gives us the rights and freedom to choose to do whatever we want to do and still pay the consequences of life. For instance, if a master of a slave is about to get killed or injured when the slave(s) is nearby/present and alive, the slave(s) can either kill (if they are the attacker), save, assist, or let the murder kill the master with or without the master threatening to do harm. They had the right to decide to help the fate of their master, by acting or not.
If a slave was freed, they had the right and freedom to choose, if they wanted to go somewhere they choose to go or they could stay and work for them, or stay a slave and still work for the person unless the person refuses the person’s help. If and when a slave was asked to go and do an errand for someone, they could either: do it; do it and then run away; about to complete the errand but run away with or without the article before the errand is complete, or not do it at all.
These few examples that I had shared about that no one can completely take away your freedom and or rights are just a few of the many instances that no one really realizes. What people can take away are privileges, money or rewards, lives, belongings, etc., this is because they (the people in charge) have the will and power/authority to do so. We can choose to go against the government or not, but the governments is supposed to protect the liberty, property, freedom, rights, and the lives of people, (if they get what they ask for), justify the people who are doing wrong/ going against the law. Here are some questions for the government, “Why are you not protecting the innocent but the guilty?” “Why do you go against the citizens (sometimes)” “Why do you make illegal drugs and behavior, acceptable and lawful?”.

The Reason Why a Specific Piece of Literature Affected Me

Any story that has to do with accidental injuries usually Affects me. Because it reminds me of my injuries that I had in life (so far). And the detail of the explanation of how the person got it, and what the injury looks like is just exquisite. If that person has or had more or and  worser injuries than I, I usually say to myself “there are more people than I who had  or have a lot more or and worser injuries than I, and that my injuries are just a fraction to those who have the injuries”. For an example, there is a YouTube video about some people with the top 10 worst injuries a man can survive. And to all woman, ‘you females usually suffer a tons more that us males can even handle, like giving birth (which or course, us males bodies are not meant to do so) and plus you females can not escape giving birth unless you are barren, or had the doctors take the fetus out before giving birth.

Hellen Keller

“Which were the key incidents that led her out of her ‘prison.”

Hellen was a very inelegant, famous ,blind and deaf person. She contracted a disease at 18 months old. The doctors back in the 1800’s knew very little about the disease that Hellen had, and they did not know what the outcome of it would be. Hellen was ill for a few weeks and when she recovered, she lost hear ability to hear and see. At the age of 8 years old, Anne Sullivan (who was a teacher for the blind) arrived at Hellen’s home. Although Hellen did not like Miss. Sullivan at first, over the years Miss.Sullivan became Hellen’s life teacher. Hellen describes her life (before her life long teacher Miss.Sullivan came), as a dark miserable, very mischief, evil place. But when Miss. Sullivan arrived, Hellen describes the joy and happiness and light that came into her world just because her teacher had the patience and love to teach her, and give her a life full of joy that Miss. Sullivan herself did not have when she was a child.

Accuracy, Succinctness, and Liveliness

I say that accuracy, succinctness, and liveliness are all important in dialog, and all play a part in dialog.
The Accuracy is how close the wording is to what actually occurred (if it occurred) or in other words, it is testing how good your memory is. Succinctness is proving the reader how good you are at using your words, and that you have control over your words. Liveliness brings the words out of the pages (not physically, but mentally), it makes the story come to life and it makes the reader feel part of the story and it also gives the reader an idea of what is happening in the story. Accuracy and Succinctness is what makes the Liveliness come out of the dialog.
