People say that your the center of delinquency and I believe them,
for I have seen the city in blood.
They say that our highways are full with holes,
never ending and dangerous.
They tell me we are corrupt,
and it is true, we've experience a coup.
That our poverty and our low economy
is comparable as that of the great depression.
And having answered so I turn once more to those who
sneer at this my city, and I give them back the sneer and say to them:
Now, show me another city that with so much government struggle
could classify to the soccer world cup,
Another city that has this marvelous flora and fauna
and that loves their cultural food
such as their bananas and baleadas.
I feel proud for this, my unique city,
and for all of those who try to diminish our city,
are fool of envy and jealousy,
For they don't have a city with so much joy and unity.
Such anger fulfills me for they don't know
that they are below
and that such city could overcome every obstacle.
And I finally answer with an arrogant look
for all of those who know nothing,
for those who are still dreaming
to have such excellent city.

Claire sauntered shyly down the crowded hallway on this first day of school. She observed timidly to her left, and then to her right. Then, she tottered out and entered the throng of students. Was anyone scrutinizing her? Claire feared to glance around, so she wandered gloomily straight ahead. However, it appeared that none of her classmates took a glimpse at her, as they scuttled to their classes.

In the strong society of systems; they were suffering a replacement in which the new technology were going to substitute them, the old technology. Old technology had been there for about ten years straight and their owner; Mr. Jonas was loyal to all of them. Mr. Jonas wouldn't change them for not even for the world’s fortune. Unfortunately for them the new technology had managed to capture Mr. Jonas and now the old technology were going to be conquered by the new one. Due to this dilemma, Mr. T seized to power and became the ruler of the old technology. Mr. T was a very old television that was used to transmit all the news to their community. He had two strong antennas that he used to communicate with the rest of the technology and to receive the signal from the countries antenna. Mr. T had two switches and one of them had a double function, the upper one was to regulate the volume and the lower one was to change of channel or to save viewed channels. This community consisted of the first technology in America used by their habitants. They were normally used for the communication of the human’s populations. Each and every single of them loved doing such things because they were made for this and they liked doing their job, by helping others. Their community was pretty old, but they desisted new changes.
With his rectangular shape, Mr. T ruled his community in such way that everyone would collaborate. Committees were made by him, the war committee, in which the computer (John) directed and the security committee, guided by the telephone (Lenny). By his old screen; Mr. T was transmitting the new technology that were arriving to the costal reef. He ruled with gentleness and benevolence, listening to each of the technology's ideas. Suddenly sorrow, sadness and selfishness were now reining the society. Sorrow came because the members of the old technology thought that they were going to loose their territory. Sadness was felt because they were now going to be ruled by the tyrants that will settle in their region. Selfishness reigned because everyone started to just care for themselves and not care for the rest.
After the event Mr. T called John and Lenny because they were the committee leaders and they needed to settle such problem. John was ordered to introduce his committee the new method of security. This one consisted of using an old file that would lock up the room in which all of them were held, this followed immediately after Mr. T’s orders. Lenny was supposed to bring all the artillery of Mr. Jonas and prepare his committee for war. They accomplished just to get: five knifes, an atlatl and some pieces of obsidian. Orders consisted that the atlatl and the five knives were going to settle in the room in case the security couldn’t resist enough the attack. While the obsidian pieces were going to be thrown from the roof to the enemies.
At twilight, the new technology was eagerly moving inward and as each second past Mr. T’s society grew more terrified. They’ve been prepared for war, but unfortunately for them that was not going to be enough. Mr. T was in awe at the first moment he could presence the great advances that they had in comparison with their technology. As they got closer Mr. T decided to raise a white flag, giving the signal of surrender. It was appreciable that they were going to lose the battle so instead of loosing his friends he just surrendered. After the day of their arrival, the new technology have been treating the old technology as slaves and Mr. T is now showing his penitence for his decision because it would’ve been better for them to just die instead of suffering what they were suffering now.

Plan to Threat France
A week ago, I met this fellow citizen that seemed so mistreated. I knew who he was at first sight, the dishonest Jean Valjean. I could watch him being rejected from every home that he went to. I was thinking to threat all France, because the bread (my favorite food) was getting really expensive. Who better than Jean Valjean, could be my colleague in this threat? He knows what is being in the gallows just for stealing loafs of breads. There must be some sort of evil in his heart that wants vengeance. Therefore I thought in making him my apprentice and his first task would be; to threat the French nation to lower the costs of the breads.
So, I just waited to Jean Valjean to knock at my door. He took a while to do so. But finally I went and opened the door; first I passed as an incognito because I am very notorious for my reputation. He first fell into my knees pleading me if he could stay home. Jean Valjean offered a good amount of money for his stay in home. Needing from my help I acceded to his plea with his pay. Dressed as a business manager I took him into the dining room to give him some food, for he was starving to death. While I watched him devouring the food I tried to deceive him. Successfully he appeared to believe that I was a very powerful business owner and that I was impressed by the inflation of the bread costs. In one moment I felt pity for Jean Valjean, because it was very improbable that he was going to be alive after my mischievous plan. The problem was in making him cooperate with my proposal to him.
The proposal consisted in “demanding” a store by stealing all its bread. Afterwards “demanding” a company by claiming all their bread and finally “demanding” all France to monopolize all the bread. I needed to make him believe that demanding was a formal way of obtaining justice. Even though it was very tough I made him believe that what I meant with demanding was basically stealing the bread without being send to the gallows. After the dinner he thanked the marvelous food that was given to him and not left not even a morsel.
Next day, I invited him to have some breakfast. He informed me that during the night he dreamt that he was an ally with the miscreant Joker, being trapped in the crime scene. Suddenly I was very nervous because I thought that he was going to reject my wily plan. So, I proposed him that if he was so preoccupied, then I was going to start by “demanding” as store and afterwards he was going to “demand” the company. In such way that he was going to be sort of my apprentice in learning how to “demand” or as I call it (steal).
As hard as I remember, Jean Valjean was stealing all the bread from my house. He took off with a giant sack of not only bread but also my food and drinks that I had. Now the apprentice had practically “demanded” my food. Like some people call it, the apprentice always surpasses the master. When I was about to persecute him, I encountered with a bunch of policemen that had discovered were I was being hidden. There is only one explanation for this, Jean Valjean discovered that I was the Joker and skillfully made me think that he didn’t notice my identity. Now I am being kept in jail, in which I have nothing better to right and learn from my mistakes. NEVER TRUST A STRANGER! Next time, hopefully in about twenty-years I will have a better tactic to take over France (just one man wasn't enough).

At the beginning of the letter John tells Abigail that he would've love to go with her to Plymouth with her. John Adams also thanks the collaboration of Dr. Bulfinches for opening an hospital and for inoculating Abigail agains smallpox. He also says that he has the right to think what he wants to, meaning that he could have his own personal bias as a right. The best resolution passed was that the united colonies have the right to make war, establish commerce, have peace and do all what other states have the right to do. America has much more wisdom than those of the British and he completely agrees with a separation having a good effect for them.
Appeal to Reason: "In private Life, no one has a Right to censure me for following my own Inclinations, in Retirement, Simplicity and Frugality: in public Life, every Man has a Right to remark as he pleases at least he thinks so" (Adams 684).
This is important to the passage because it is stating the fact that everyone can think what they want to. No one has the right to restrict others the opinions of somebody. Relating to the passage because that is the only way they can have a free and independent states, having that specific freedom.
Appeal to Pity:
"America shall suffer Calamities still more wasting and Distresses yet more dreadfull" (Adams 684).
This is important to the passage because it expresses what people should feel for the calamities that could happen. Relating to the passage because if they don't get freedom and be independent, then they would suffer things that they shouldn't.
