  1. Reflective Statement - Zorba the Greek

    Throughout the novel, food is not only portrayed as living necessities, but as daily rituals in which one indulges and thus, cleanses his/her soul. Zorba described food as the basic unit of life, stating that as man consumes food, he excretes happiness and pleasure. This can be seen on many occasions, such as the duo's very first meal with Dame Hortense, where dinner was consumed and thus resulted in a passionate affection between the French siren and Zorba.

  13. Democratic Rights to Safety and Security Arguing Against the Building of Nuclear Power Plants in the USA.

    But will the construction truly benefit these people on a large scale, in the long-run? Are there actual economic gains in the first place? Without a doubt, the people will not benefit from the nuclear plant in the long-run, and the economic gains will not outweigh the losses. We need to prevent the construction of the Willets Point nuclear power plant, because it will endanger our safety and security. As citizens of the United States of America, we have every right to protest against nuclear energy because it violates our unalienable rights.

  15. The Truman Show -Analysis.The Truman Show is a movie about a man named Truman Burbank, whose life is exposed through a reality TV show.

    He is rather naive and is confident in any situation, which makes the audience sympathize with Truman's pitiful life. Truman himself reveals the ironic meaning in the story. His name also hints this fact. The audience is invited to reflect their own lives in comparison to the ironical meaning in the movie. Accordingly, the movie recommends viewers to relate some aspects of the characters in the movie to themselves personally. While providing enjoyment to the viewer, the film has a lot of underlying meaning and themes. If we imagine that every moment of our lives is being recorded on a camera and broadcasted on TV, it would be quite gruesome.

    Moreover, the failing test grades and the confusion about her identity messed up her mind and body. As I talked with the North Korean girl, the first thought I had on my mind was that the indifference of South Koreans toward North Koreans is getting worse and worse. Despite the number of North Korean defectors has passed two million, their feeling of isolation and the suppression from the normal life are getting bigger like a balloon that can pop up someday. Among the number of two million, teenagers account for twenty percent. Furthermore, twenty to thirty percent of the North Korean teenagers are orphans who don't have anyone to support them.
