I suggest you wait until you've written your essay before you worry about a hook.
In addition to the rituals we've talked about, I think another harmful ritual is war and violence. How common it is to hear the advice, "Fight for what you believe!" Millions have people have died because others wanted to sacrifice them to prove a point in a war. Yet, Mahatma Gandhi, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., and Nelson Mandela all won without using violence.
thanks very much ms. sue
i need some example from story lottery that go with theme, one be in the end where tessie get stoned to death, and death be the price paid for continuing on such tradition, i not able to find other examples.
What about the hypocrisy of the happy people who appear to have gathered for a joyous occasion. But they've actually gathered to kill one of their friends.
What kind of people seem to enjoy killing one of their friends?
so it be really traumatizing for the community too, cause little kids join in to throw stones, and this show a bad future to come, and also they doing nothing good for community by killing people, if this ritual continue then it might be chaos in future?
I don't think there will be chaos -- but this custom will continue in the same way until someone realizes how damaging it is to the community.
do there be any other example from story i use for this essay?
Aren't all of the leaders of this lottery men? Do you find any examples of women being involved -- other than just attending and being victims?
no so that mean that if this ritual continue the men be ahead of the women?
I could interpret it to mean that if women had some leadership roles in the community, the lottery might be stopped. Does denying women leadership roles undermine a society?
