avidly- Having an ardent desire or unbounded craving; greedy

This relates to the book because people are willing to accuse the innocent of being witches just for there land example like Putnam, Parris, and Corey Giles are talking about the land and being greedy about it.

The dark Flower

thou flower shalt not bloom
on a wintery february day
it awakes in the night but
will perish in the fire by day

remains of the flower
found by the fire
no more dancing
for the night is silent.

Civil Rights

"The best way to solve any problem is to remove its cause." Stride Towards Freedom 1964. Martin Luther King Jr.

I agree with this quote strongly because we still have problems today, like the war in Iraq. To remove the cause the troops from the other country, and make peace with them. Otherwise this mayhem in Iraq will never end until we blow each other to pieces.

A Single Slice Reveals Them by Naomi ShiHab-nye

A Single Slice Reveals Them
by; Naomi Shihab-Nye

An apple on the table
hides its seeds
so neatly
under seamless skin.

But we talk and talk and talk
to let somebody

Ishmael is hiding what he wants instead of war and only knowing violence. He wants to be the way he was before the war and have his friends and family back. He is at this camp where the nurses want to help him get back to normal. He needs to sit down and let out all of the memories of the war and to let out the hate that he has built inside of him. Its going to take time for him to get him back to normal. Ishmael needs someone that has allot of patience.

Ishmael has two identities a boy and a soldier, he has his boy identity butting with his soldier identity causing him to fight with him self to keep his mind from playing tricks on him. Kids need to have maturity and education wut ishmael has is not anything of those the killing of the people can make the kids commit suicide, and the kids might not have a long life span while surving in the armed survice.
