Critical Thinking

a. Many innocent people lose their lives in ruthless attacks every year. What do you think the governments should do to protect their people from such attacks and make the world a safer place to live? Discuss with your friends.

Yes, The government has a crucial role to play in ensuring the safety and security of its citizens. It should invest in modern technologies and intelligence gathering to prevent attacks before they happen. The government should also have strict border controls and security checks to keep terrorists from entering the country. In addition, authorities should work with communities and religious leaders to promote tolerance, peace, and dialogue to prevent extremist ideologies from taking root.

b. Revenge and violence are the integral parts of the history and civilization. They can’t be ignored, only managed. Do you agree or not with this statement? Present your logic.

 I do not agree with the statement that revenge and violence are integral parts of history and civilization. While it is true that violence has been a part of human history, it is not a necessary or inevitable part of civilization. Humans are capable of progress and change, and we can learn from our mistakes and seek peaceful solutions to conflicts. Violence only begets more violence, and it ultimately leads to destruction and suffering. It is important to prioritize peaceful means of conflict resolution, such as negotiation, mediation, and diplomacy, rather than resorting to violence and revenge.


A. Write a description of an event that you have recently witnessed.

I recently witnessed a colorful cultural festival that took place in the downtown area of my city. It was a celebration of the rich heritage and diversity of our community, featuring music, dance, and food from various cultures.

The streets were lined with booths selling traditional clothes, crafts, and food from different countries. The air was filled with the scent of exotic spices and the sound of lively music.

There were dance performances from different cultures, each one uniquely colorful and vibrant. The performers wore traditional costumes and moved to the rhythm of the music, enchanting the audience with their graceful movements.

People from different ethnic backgrounds gathered to celebrate and appreciate each other's cultures. The festival was a beautiful display of unity in diversity, as people from different walks of life came together to appreciate each other's differences.

Overall, it was a heartwarming and joyful event, and it made me appreciate the beauty of diversity in our world.

B. Human life does not pass as one expects. You might have also gone through different but memorable incidents. Write an essay on “An Unforgettable Event in my Life’ in about 500 words.

I will never forget the day I lost my grandmother. It was a tragic event that left a deep impact on me, and I still feel the pain and sorrow of that day.

My grandmother was a kind and gentle soul who always had a smile on her face. She was my source of comfort and support, and I cherished the time I spent with her. Her passing was a devastating loss to our family, and it changed our lives forever.

I remember the day she passed away vividly. I was at school, and my mom came to pick me up early. When I saw the tears in her eyes, I knew that something terrible had happened. We rushed to the hospital, where we found out that my grandmother had suffered a heart attack and could not be saved.

The whole day was a blur of tears, hugs, and sadness. I felt lost and alone, unable to come to terms with the fact that my grandmother was gone. I remember feeling like a part of me had been ripped away, and that nothing would ever be the same again.

In the days and weeks that followed, my family and I mourned the loss of my grandmother. We tried to find comfort in each other's company, but the pain of our loss was too great. It was a time of sadness and reflection, as we all struggled to come to terms with our new reality.

Looking back, I realize that my grandmother's passing taught me a valuable lesson about life. It made me realize how precious and fragile life can be and how important it is to cherish the moments we have with our loved ones. It also made me appreciate the strength of my family and the power of love and support during difficult times.

In conclusion, the loss of my grandmother was an unforgettable event in my life that left a lasting impact on me. Although the pain and sorrow of that day will always be with me, I have learned to cherish the memories of my grandmother and the time we spent together. Her passing taught me a valuable lesson about the fragility of life and the importance of treasuring the moments we have with our loved ones.

What are we seeing here? One very real possibility is that these are the educational consequences of the differences in parenting styles that we talked about in the Chris Langan chapter. Think back to Alex Williams, the nine-year-old whom Annette Lareau studied. His parents believe in connected cultivation. He gets taken to museums and gets enrolled in special programs and goes to summer camp, where he takes classes. When he’s bored at home, there are plenty of books to read, and his parents see it as their responsibility to keep him actively engaged in the world for him. It’s hard to see how Alex would get better at reading and math in the summer.
