    • Hi Mary,
      I totally agree on your views on how deforestation is a major issue in the world. I actually wrote about taking better care of the environment for the Letters to the next President project! I think you did a great job in bringing in key pieces of evidence to support your stance and I also think you did an amazing job with explaining how they support! Great post!

  • Huck is most definitely a good person with the right type of morals. There’s growth in his character as the story moves on and he undergoes many incidences and events that help add depth to Huck. Although, if you think Huck has changed throughout the story, why would Mark Twain say that there is no plot or moral to the book? If there’s obvious…Read More

    • Hi Mary, This is a great I definitely think that Huck has grown from the beginning of the book and he has learned through his journey what wrong and right is. Huck really showed that he has good intention for what he is doing he may not have recieved good morals at a young age but he was truly able to gain them through his journey to freedom.I wouldn’t call this book racist because I think Twain used this book to help teach people a lesson about what it was like during slavery times. The story really shows how young kids even have the thought to help slaves gain freedom and also have a care to understand that slavery is not just. Huck was so young and he was able to cover up lies to help out his friend Jim even though Huck may have not had the easiest time but, I think he was able to do the best he could. If you lived in this time would you be brave enough to help a slave travel to freedom?

  • There are many moments where there are clear signs of foreshadowing in the book, and I think you chose a good one because it sets the stage for the rest of the story regarding Huck’s father and his behavior. I definitely agree with how you pointed out that the presence of parents affect the child and how they act.

    Mary commented on the post, Animal Cruelty

    Animal cruelty is definitely a problem in today’s society and while reading your essay, I could tell how passionate you are about this issue of animals being treated poorly and less than what they’re worth. I agree that there needs to be more awareness to the problem and more people willing to help the cause.
