  • What do you think of my poem? Constructive criticism?

    Okay, first, the backstory: this is inspired by the Holocaust, and particularly from the book Night by Elie Wiesel. In the story he tells of how workers would throw pieces of bread into their cattle car just to watch them fight over it, killing their comrades. Enjoy! And please give me constructive criticism, but don't be rude.

    Bread

    by Nadia A.

    Imagine a piece of bread thrown at you,

    Clearly stale and soggy,

    The ground upon which your sore feet stand,

    Is itchy; murky; boggy.

    Your last lifeline hurls through the air,

    The smell wafting through the crowd amongst you,

    Until someone jumps; rivets the crowd into attacking like bears at the food.

    But how could they help it?

    How could they not?

    And so they fought, and fought, and fought.

    They continued on with their barbaric ways,

    Killing anyone who tried to delay,

    Their salvation.

    Their sacrifice.

    I just sat there. Listless.

    Watching the people at which the barbarians threw their fists.

    Blood gushing, rushing out in an instant;

    A stream of red liquid pouring from their bodies.

    All you hear is grunting;

    Yelling and screaming.

    The once-dim eyes of people gleaming.

    Savoring his one last meal,

    As the grotesque body of his oppressor lays lifeless and decaying.

    Then at once I finally realized,

    My life laid out before me,

    It was fight and endure,

    Or die a slow and painful death.

    All for a piece of bread.

  • What present to give my 17 year old brother?

    He really doesn't like much things. I asked him what he wanted and he said clothes, but usually the style and brands of clothes he likes are super expensive. And when I did find him a good-priced name brand shirt and hat, they were both gone the next day when I went back for them. Any other ideas non clothing related?

  • Australian volunteer program?

    My mom told me about a volunteer program her friend's daughters went to in Australia! I have no clue what it's called and my mom isn't in contact with the friend anymore so there is no way to get the name of it from her. I am intrigued about this program and would love to go, so could someone, anyone, find the name of it for me? Thanks a lot.

    Virginia Hamilton

    Virginia Hamilton’s birth took place in the quaint rural area of Yellow Springs, Ohio on March 12, 1936 (Mikkelsen 2). Her parents were Kenneth James and Etta Belle Perry Hamilton (“Virginia Hamilton Biography” 1). The, just as any other parents would, took for granted that Virginia was a perfectly normal child, bound to become a doctor or a lawyer. Little did they know that their daughter was really going to turn out as an award-winning author, who inspires adults and children alike. Virginia Hamilton was an extremely influential African American because of the way she represented her culture through the novels she wrote.

    Virginia and her four older siblings came from a family of storytellers (Mikkelsen 2). Their parents would often tell them stories of their African American heritage. Some stories they told were about how two of their relatives escaped slavery (Mikkelsen 2). These relatives were Virginia’s great-great-grandmother, who escaped with her son in the 1850s, and her maternal grandfather, Levi Perry (Mikkelsen 2). They all got out by crossing the Ohio River (Mikkelsen 2).

    Virginia’s parents and their many stories were left behind, though, when she departed from home to enter college. At first, she went to Antioch College (Mikkelsen 2). However, she didn’t feel that they helped her much with her writing (Mikkelsen 2). Since Antioch didn’t satisfy her needs, she transferred over to Ohio State University (Mikkelsen 2). Obviously it suited her, because she stayed at that school and graduated in 1958 with a Bachelor of Arts (Mikkelsen 2). She majored in literature and creative writing (“Virginia Hamilton Biography” 1).

    Although Virginia always wanted to be an author, she held many other jobs, too. To keep her finances steady while she built up her writing career, she worked lots of different jobs in New York (Mikkelsen 2). These various jobs included being a bookkeeper, nightclub singer, receptionist, and accountant, as well as other things (Mikkelsen 2). She no longer had to work these jobs, however, when she married Arnold Adoff, a poet and author, on March 19, 1960 (Mikkelsen 2). Together they had two children—a daughter, Leigh, in 1963 and a son, Jaime Levi, four years later (Mikkelsen 2).

    Most of Virginia’s books were geared towards young adults (Mikkelsen 1). She brought folklore tradition to much of her writing (Mikkelsen 1). In fact, she revised many common folktales such as John Henry and High John the Conqueror (Mikkelsen 1). In addition to this, she wrote an astounding number of award-winning novels including The House of Dies Drear, M.C. Higgins the Great, Sweet Whispers, and Brother Rush (“Virginia Hamilton Biography” 1). The first novel she’d ever written was The Novel (Mikkelsen 2). She lost it, however, and her first published novel was called Zeely (Mikkelsen 2).

    People enjoy Virginia’s books for many reasons. They applaud her for the unique style of writing she uses (Mikkelsen 3). However, this is also criticized, and people have many varied opinions of her. No matter what, though, she is honored for how she always carried her culture with her and in her novels, with pride. Loann Toth, book review editor for School Library Journal, said, “Hamilton is a marvelous storyteller; and so she brings that sense of narrative and just brings a wonderful sense of language to everything she does,” (Mikkelsen 5).

    Virginia Hamilton’s span of achievements is very broad. Her awards include the Newbery Medal, several Newbery Honor Awards, the Regina Medal, the Edgar Allen Poe Award, the Laura Ingalls Wilder Award for Lifetime Achievement, and many, many more (Mikkelsen 2). She was also the first children’s author to be given the MacArthur Foundation’s 1995 prize of $350,000 (Mikkelsen 2). Among her prestigious number of other awards, Kent State University has had a conference named after her held since the 1980’s (Mikkelsen 2). Although she’s gotten all of these awards, Hamilton said her most satisfying reward is alerting children of their rich ethnic culture (Mikkelsen 4).

    Virginia Hamilton was an inspiration to people all over the world. She was truly proud to be an African American and to write about African American, and I think she really embraced that. Sadly, she passed away on February 19, 2002 (Mikkelsen 10). She died of breast cancer at the age of 65 (“Virginia Hamilton Biography” 3). Although she’s gone now, she will still live on forever as an African American legend.
