ÿþI scream at strangers. A cancer research chugger came up ï»¿mens hats
to me. I told her I knew more about cancer than she did because I was having a mastectomy and chemotherapy and she should get stuffed.? a friend forced me to go out.? I was sobbing in the toilets I can't do this, I can't.? Some woman yelled back you can, you can.? When she opened the cubicle I yelled that what I can't do is chemotherapy and she should keep her nose out of other people's business.? She went apologetic.? My friend now agrees with me we shouldn't go out, I should just visit her.? She said I'm liable to get punched in the face.
Hello Jan, we posted a reply to "iwanttolive" at the same time. you sound like some one who managed to find a balance that I just can't find. that life that you so dearly cling to, because it's worth it, even if you're scared and hurt,...well mine doesn't seem to be worth it at all. I asked the oncologist not to talk about chemo, I haven't started the treatment he prescribed. I know I should be so lucky to be alive, god knows there are millions who get no treatment at all in this world....but I just don't start taking the pills. I'm not sure if it's wedding hats
vanity or will. I must be confused.
A marvelous book in the true dictionary sense of "marvel": it is a wonderful and astonishing thing, the kind of book that makes child laugh and adult chuckle, and both smile in appreciation. A charmingly wicked little book. The New York Times Deliberately understated, with delectable results& Skillful characterizations; though they're simply drawn and have little to say, each animal emerges fully realized. Publishers Weekly baby hats
(starred review) Read aloud, this story will offer many sublime insights into how young readers comprehend an illustrated text that leaves out vital information, and will leave young sleuths reeling with theories about what just happened. School Library Journal Klassen's animation and design skills are evident on every page in this sly, subversive tale... Adults and older children will chuckle mordantly at rabbit's sudden disappearance, while young children might actually wonder, with Squirrel, where the rabbit has gone. The Horn Book Indubitably hip, this will find plenty of admirers. Kirkus Reviews You know, bears may stand for adults in some way, because they're big, they're ungainly, they're goofy. They're like most of us grownups. But the bear in this book paws down; he's got to be the dimmest, most slow-witted, brilliantly stupid bear to come along in years.
Both animals deny doing anything wrong, but the tilley hats
actions they deny differ. The Rabbit, if it did steal, did not do so in response to anything, while the Bear, if it did eat the Rabbit, did so in retaliation for the theft of the hat. In this way the killing of the Rabbit can be viewed as punishment. But is it just, or even proper punishment? This is what we will talk about with the students. This sort of discussion will cover ideas of reciprocity, such as what sorts of punishments fit different kinds of crimes and will introduce the students to the idea of how a punishment can be just, and we will ask them to explain what makes something just. Later in the discussion this will be brought up again in the form of reciprocity, whether or not justness comes from a punishment being equally bad as the crime. By questioning alternatives the Bear could have taken we bring into question the necessity of punishment. Perhaps death was not a good punishment for theft, perhaps a less violent form of retribution could have been enacted.
From here we can take the two actions of the Rabbit and the Bear and compare them asking if their actions are equally bad, and then if thievery or murder is worst. The class may be divided on this, which is helpful, because it allows us to explore how their punishments should differ. Since we've established murder as wrong, we can conclude he ought to be punished. After establishing if the Bear's action is worse than the Rabbit's we can ask how his punishment should differ, or if it should? Perhaps we believe that the Rabbit does not deserve to die over theft, as death and lost property are not equally harmful, but we do think that a punishment for killing someone could be death. In this way the Bear deserves the same punishment that the Rabbit received, even though in the Rabbit's case, such a punishment was unjust.
This section can also touch on revenge, asking if it is different from punishment. This can introduce the hats for women
idea of intentions coloring the morality of actions. Does murder differ from capital punishment? And what about how the intention of a crime affects how it is punished? If, for instance, the Rabbit only found the hat and was not aware that taking it would be thievery, does the need to punish the Rabbit change? This will also bring into play the idea of "two wrongs make a right." Perhaps what makes the killing of the Rabbit unjust is not that it is too severe for the crime the Rabbit
committed, but that it did not knowingly commit a crime.
