&Men(A) Essay, Research Paper
The book that I have read that has really stayed with me is Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck. I really enjoyed reading it which is unusual because I usualy don’t enjoy reading to much. Therewas something about George and Lennie’s friendship that really made me think. Seeing how theywere and how they shared life was really intresting. George didn’t have to bother with Lennie, hecould have abandoned him and gone on his own way. But he did not do that, he stayed withLennie watching over him almost like a parent to a child. Even though Lennie always got Georegein trouble, George never stoped loving him and always stood by him. The friendship they sharedwent beyond what was transparent they each shared a dream and both knew they ment the worldto each other. I felt that if these totaly different people could get along and look out for each other, why can’t weget along with people who are differnt than us. They made me realize that I could learn somethingfrom how to treat people who are differnt than me. What I also liked about it was the way they
never stopped trying to reach their dream. This made me think that if they could work hard forthere dream why can’t I. It showed me that it does not matter were you come from or what youdo, it is okay to dream and work as hard as you can to reach it . For all it shows for friendship and loyalty it also shows how sometimes you have to do things younever thought you would do. For example in the end when George is forced to shoot Lennie in thehead you would never have thought he would do that, but you can see that under thecircumstances he had no other choice. He only had two choices let the other people get to him firstand watch them torture Lennie while he died a long horrible death or do it himself and get it overquick were Lennie did not know what hit him. This is also true in life, many times we are facedwith tuff choices and even though they may be the hardest you will have to go through, you knowthat that is the only way. You come to the realization that everything you thought you was about,can all change with a blink of the eye.
