Christmas Storm and Sunshine

Values: Citizenship and commitment reflected in Christmas storm and sunshine.
In this essay I am going to talk about a story called Christmas storms and sunshine, this is a story written by Elisabeth Gaskell, I am going to tell and explain how the values of commitment and citizenship are reflected in this story. It is important to say that this story talks about two families that didn’t really like themselves because they were both owner of a newspaper one called the tori and the other one called the examinator. But the real problem of the story was that the Wifes hated each other not all the family. The families were called the jerkins and the hodgsons. The conflict is triggered by a minor incident involving Ms. Jenkins' cat, who later denies her help to Mrs. Hodgson in the face of the sudden and dangerous illness of her young son. At the end of the story, the Jenkins invite the Hodgsons to dinner and both families warn that their differences are not that important . I can I can s…

THE LADY LF SHALOTT/ values: patience-caring

THE LADY OF SHALOTT VALUES: PATIENCE / CARING 

This essay would be about how the values of patience and caring are reflected in the story of “The lady of shalott”. To start with this story is a lyrical ballad written by the English poet Alfred, Lord Tennyson. This story is about patience because the girl of shallot is imprisoned in a tower on a beautiful island near Camelot and she doesn’t have any idea of the outside world kind of like Rapunzel, the people of Camelot only could hear her signing, so patience is reflected in this story because this lady one day decide to leave the island on a little boat and she ended up dead basically because she couldn’t wait and in my opinion even if in the story it isn’t specified I think she was in love with someone who actually lived in Camelot who’s name was Lancelot and she was so impatient to go there and meet him because she could see him trough a mirror that she had and with that mirror is that she could see Camelot. Then towards the end we di…

A MODEST PROPOSAL

A MODEST PROPOSAL 
In this essay I am going to write about a story called “a modest proposal” en how the values of justice and fairness are reflected in the story. To start with, this story took place in the 1720s in Ireland, a men called Jonathan swift had an idea that not everybody liked but some people agreed. In Ireland in that year there was an economical crisis and a huge overpopulation that was making a lot of trouble to the country, there was a lot of poverty too, this was very bad because the quantity of poverty people was bigger than the quantity of people who had a good economy or a good economical stage.
This men called Switf decide to do a not so modest proposal in my opinion, I also think that the title have a little sarcasm in it. His proposal was that the poor women who had babies under a certain age need to sell their babies to rich people for them to eat them, he explain that is a good way to low the population and to feed people, so I really think that here the values …

FROM THE DIARY OF SAMUEL PEPYS

FROM THE DIARY OF SAMUEL PEPYS (trustworthiness and gratefulness)
To start with this reading is a diary wrote by a man called Samuel Pepys and its an account of a lot of events that happened in his life it’s a 300 years old account of stories to be more exact.  In this reading we have to figure out how the values of trustworthiness and thankfulness are reflected in his life and in the characters.
At the beginning it’s really hard to se how theses values could be reflected in him since he was a very selfish and not really kind person, since he only cared about himself and he didn’t really helped or make a contribution in others life, he was only a worker of the king kind of like a secretary or helper, at first I thought that that was the only thing that he was showing thankfulness about, his job and his social class due to his work and the money he was making because of it, he was a very disrespectful person with his wife because he told many times in his diary that he usually cheated on …

Virtues

VIRTUES
This essay will be about which virtues should have a person to make earth a better place. To start with it is important for us to know what is a virtue, a virtue is behaviour showing high moral standards, we can also say that is a good moral quality in a person, it is thinking and doing what is right and avoiding what is wrong.  Next I will be talking and naming the virtues I considered the most recognizable among people. The most famous virtues are kindness, love, loyalty, commitment, passion, compassion, cooperation, courage, creativity, dignity, forgiveness, honesty, humility, and the most important in my opinion is respect. I think those are the values that someone or everybody needs to have to cooperate to make earth a better place to live in. I believed that someone without respect will not help to make the environment peaceful, if he or she is a person without this value probably the only thing that this will cause is make people feel sad and bad about themselves or about …
