Charter of Rights and Freedoms Impact (Blogpost #3)

The book so far has been interesting and amusing. The emotion in each sentence really pulls you into the actual scene. Kek's journey to find his place in America is a bumpy road, but with his motivation and curiosity, Kek can accomplish anything.

The Charter of Rights and Freedoms has shown it's part of the book a few times. One example would be Equality Rights. Equality Rights is a big concept in Home of the Brave because once Kek moves to America he is still treated the same way as everyone else. It does not affect the way he looks, the way he talks, or his race. Equality Rights did impact Kek once he came to America by not being judged, and welcomed with open arms to America. Kek's school also shares a part of Equality Rights because he has an ESL class that has kids that are just like Kek, he is never judged on what language he speaks or even is backstory. Home of the Brave has a clear connection of Equality Rights.

Now let's talk about Fundamental Freedoms. Home of the Brave shows some aspects of this Right by showing how Kek has the freedom of belief, freedom of thought, and freedom of religion. Kek has thought of leaving America (Fundamental Freedoms allows this) because he misses his hometown and he also wanted to find his mother that still hasn't shown up for a while. Kek had the Freedom of Expression when wanted to put Gol in the zoo because even though he immigrated from his village in Africa he still had the Freedom of Expression once he came to America. This Right then allowed Gol to stay in the zoo.

The Charter of Rights and Freedoms is our foundation of keeping our society fair, and a safe, equal environment. Without it, our community would be unfair to new-comers and to everyone else.

What made Kek and I sad... (Blogpost #2)

So far the book is keeping the same pace of surprising me. The book gives me different emotions every chapter, some feeling sad, angry, and happy.

The emotion that this book made me feel so far is sadness. I am happy that he was able to immigrate to America but sadly his dad and his brother were both killed back in his village, and his mom is still trying to immigrate to America. The saddest moment in the book so far is when Lou has to sell the farm so she could pay off her hospital bills. Even with Kek and Ganwar's help its hard to keep track of everything. When I first found out about the farm being sold it made me feel sad towards Kek because he worked so hard to take care of Gol (the cow's name), and the rest of the farm. With the farm being sold that would mean the friendship between Kek and Lou would get cut off totally because she would have to move somewhere else.

Another subject that saddened me was that the barn was Ganwar's only place of work since he only has one arm. With no work, that would put Ganwar under a lot of stress because just imagine finding a place to work with only one arm.

Hopefully, Ganwar can find a job that suits him. I hope later on in the book the farm gets re-built with Kek's help, maybe he could own the farm in the end, and I hope that Kek's mother will come back to him peacefully. These wishes will only come true if only I keep reading...

Kek's Empathy/Sympathy (Blogpost #1)

Home of the Brave is a really good, eye-catching novel. It clearly shows the perspective of each character, for example, their body type, skin color, height, age and so on. If I were to choose one perspective that has been focused on the most in this story so far is Kek. Kek is a spunky, curious, loving boy who enjoys and want's to learn new things ever since he came to America. Kek is empathetic towards others when they express something bad about their life because Kek has gone through the exact pain before. I don't think Kek has reached the stage of compassion yet because he does not know his friends that much. Kek's lives with his aunt and his cousin Ganwar, his parents were bother killed back in their village.

Once Kek met a little girl named Hannah the same age as him in his apartment complex, she quickly became friends with Kek. Hannah is part of a foster family because her dad disappeared and her mom is in rehab for drugs and alcohol. When Kek finds out about this he starts to feel empathetic towards her because he could really connect with her situation and story. With that evidence so far they were able to show a bond with each other that would last until the end of the book. Kek has made people sympathize for him ever since he came to school on the first day.

The story so far is really fun, and it makes you feel grateful that we're in a beautiful country where we have all of this freedom and that you are always welcome to join a new country that supports every move that you do with open arms...

First Project

Name
HOME OF THE Brave


Why I chose this
I chose this novel because it reminds me of the movie “Lion”. I also chose this book because the main character's personality is shown very clearly in the blurb. I am very interested to read this book and can’t wait! I have never heard of this book before which expands my creativity in different books.

Are Vincent and Matt Twins?! (Compare and Contrast Vincent and Matteo)

Gattaca more like Madaca because this movie is action packed!! There are two very different characters in the novel and movie we have discovered. One of them had a dream to go to outer space specifically Titan, and the other just wanted to be a normal boy. Matt was born different, no one loved him or wanted to be his friend until he found Maria, and of course Celia. Vincent was also born different he was expected to die at the age of 30 by his heart. Vincent wanted to achieve his goal, but he didn't have enough time, so that's why he needed a new identity and a new life. Matt wanted just to loved so that's why he made a change by freeing the orphans from the keepers. This can also connect to the real world because our technology is getting stronger and much more efficient.

Now to compare and contrast. Both protagonists have been made genetically. I have a connection to another person in both. Tam Lin can connect to Jerome because they both killed themselves and Jerome and Tam Lin have always been beside Vincent and Matt. Both have been “made” by someone really powerful like Jerome was really powerful because he was really smart and he also was registered into Gattaca, and Matt was made by El Patron who was the drug lord of Opium.

El Patron and Jerome are also connected but Jerome had good intentions and El Patron a had very bad one. Matt and Vincent bother were kind hearted, strong hearted, and were very loved by a few people. Just because both spirits were made intentionally doesn't mean they are different from one another, it just means that they have the same cells of the person whom they were made from. Vincent, in the end, did have his dream of exploring Titan but he also lost a friend while doing it. Matt achieved his goal by taking El Patrons spot, and taking care of all his friends and achieving his goal, in the end, Vincent on the other hand also achieved his goal but lost a friend while doing it but made a new one while doing it as well.

At the end of the both, we have looked at both of the protagonist's friends have died and both protagonists have reached their end goal at surprisingly fast ages which are also a major connection to both novel and film. These two movies are basically identical in a way. Will we ever get this far in the technological world? My inference for what will happen next is that we will achieve this far in technology and it will be used for good deeds.

Lets Hope the Farm Patrol doesn't read this! (Real Life Farm Patrol Blogpost 5)



Donald Trump has said about the 12,000 Syrian refugees who currently live in the U.S. ― “If I win, they’re going back,” He stated. For my current event, I chose that Trudeau's Cabinet gets set for in-depth talks on illegal border crossers. This connects to Celia because she was caught illegally by crossing the border, and this whole article is based off the illegal border crossers. A more in depth reason in this article is that Trump keeps pushing refugees out from America and Trudeau keeps allowing diversity into Canada. People's first choice was Canada to illegally cross because they feel welcomed but in the wrong way, and in America it is very strict to cross borders. Here is a quote from the article "The agreement says a refugee claimant must apply for asylum in whichever of the two countries they arrive first — unless they qualify for an exception." 

Celia turned into a coyote because she cared about Matt and thought of him like a son. She risked her life because she thought Matt deserved to live through his childhood as a teenager. She made Tam Lin escort Matt outside so he can escape because Tam Lin was trusted by the new leader, while Celia had to be turned into an eejit. Hopefully, Matt can go back to the big house in Opium to save Tam Lin and Celia but it looks grim for them. The illegal crossings is a really big problem. Surely our government can step up and try to find a solution to fix this shocking inevitable. Tam Lin is unquestionably coming back because he still has his position as a bodyguard so maybe he can come back in the later last chapters. For the "human aspect" this is really true and connectible to the book because we as well have coyotes and illegal border crossers, thank goodness we have a prime minister that cares for the refugees that are actually trying to cross the border safely and legally. Trumps has a temporary ban of the Muslims crossing borders which is a good thing to know. Still, no matter how many enter illegally, some voices will try to make a political issue. If I was in Celia's position I would pray that Matt has found Maria and is finding a plan to try to save Celia and Tam Lin, but Matt's tracks have been stopped by the keepers, will he escape? If not he will have to wait until he's 18 which is still far away.

Does Matt Have the Same Insights as Us? (Blogpost 4 Matt's Worldview's)

Just to get this out, there are a total of 3 world views for Matt! For Matt, I feel like his worldview is View of the Good Life because he cares for others and not for money, unlike El Patron. He shows this by showing sympathy for Tam Lin and Celia because they were left behind while Matt is on his way to San Luise. What Matt wants to get out of life is to become a grown up and so he can look back on his past as being hated to being loved and then being used for something even worse, also to maybe to get married to Maria. Whenever you learn something about Matt it's not about his well being or his accomplishments, it's always him caring for someone else like El Patron, Tam Lin, Maria, and Celia.

Another worldview is Responsibilities to Others. The reason is because he always strives to help others and he would always still have the sympathy for other people. This connects to the other worldview that I've written about because in that worldview it also talks about his sympathy for others, and how he puts himself ahead of others. Matt has always protected others whenever he had the chance to actually do it. He has protected Maria many times in these chapters. Other close people to Matt have also protected him by saving him from El Patron (Celia), people have also helped Matt hide in comfort while the whole big house was looking for him (Maria), and last but not least Matt escaped and was able to move to a new city to start a new life (Tam Lin).

My last and final worldview is Equality with others because everyone treated Matt like a dog because he wasn't part of the human race, and was born out of a cow. Plus when everyone started to treat him normally it was only because he was only El Patron's clone. I agree that everyone should deserve the same privileges even when they weren't made by god, as long as they are not a threat and if they also believed in the same acts as everyone else. There was a hierarchy system in the Big House secluding people from Eejits which was the lowest system to be in, then to the highest part of the system which was the richest person in the building and land which was El Patron, so it does partially connect to the Renaissance's system as well.
