Anecdote (short story)
  • Topic: Violence
  • I remember the first time I watched someone’s hair get ripped out. Two girls were screaming in the hallway in seventh grade. Their fists were flying and strands of brown hair were strewn about the stone floor. I remember feeling sick to my stomach. I have a hard time understanding violence. The song “Boom” by System of a Down addresses the issue of violence.

Quotation
  • Topic: Hope
  • Irish writer Oscar Wilde once said, “We are all in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars.” I agree completely. When our situations are grim, being able to see hope in the future is key. The song “O-o-h Child” by The 5 Stairsteps addresses this theme of hope.

Rhetorical Question
  • Topic: Love
  • Have you ever had your heart broken? Not the pulling at your heart string kind of hurt, but the heart stopping, stomping, how will I ever live past this pain kind of hurt? The song “I Will Survive” by Gloria Gaynor reveals the theme of survival. The speaker in the songs shows us that she will not only survive a broken heart, but will become stronger as a result..
