    Theme in Literature Essay
    In every book there's always a theme or life lesson. Many times the theme is not always given right off, eventually in the end of the story you have to think of what the story taught you. You have to think of what the author wanted you to take away from his/her story. The lesson you take away from the story you have read is usually the theme or the overall message of the story. The theme or message varies from book to book. Every book has a theme, however every book is different.

    -Definatly, this movie has been around for awhile now and everyone I know loves it and has watched it more than once, I think it will always remain a classic. I think "Pay it Forward" relates to universal ideas and situations, the movie is about Paying forward good deeds which I think everyone is aware of all around the world. Everyone knows you should treat people the way you would want to be treated as well as What goes around comes around, which is very relavent in the movie. Again, yes it relates to contemporary situations and situations from the past because like I said everyone knows you should treat people the way you would want to be treated.

    -I think the film was very pleasing. The film was made in the year 2000 so the quality isn't that bad at all. The performance of all the actors come together to make a really powerful piece, I think that this plays a huge roll in the movie because it really helps the person watching the movie feel like it's all really happening. A movie scene is when Trevor stands in from his social studies class and presents his idea of Paying it forward. To see how he acts when he tells his little class of roughly 25 about his idea he has no idea how revolutionary his idea will be. To me that's beautiful to see him think that he had a big dream of helping so many people and it came true.

    ...
    The third book I read called ‘The Help’ by: Kathyrn Stockett relates to my universal truth as well as the other two books. In ‘The Help’ a woman named “Skeeter” (she was white) decided to write a book from the point of the view of the help (basically the colored maids during the 1960’s). In the book Skeeter is writing she is interviewing the help and writing down their numerous stories of past people or current people that they have worked for. This was a big issue during this time, blacks and whites weren’t supposed to interact for any reason at this time. But, Skeeter decided to take a chance because she was passionate about writing. Not only was she taking a chance but they everyone that participated in the writing of the book could have gotten in major trouble with the law. In the end the book is published and many copies were sold. Skeeters life changed when she decided to take a leap of faith and go with what she thought was right. This book, however different then the other two in the way that Skeeter made the change in her life willingly and it was a positive change.
    Some similarities between the books read would be that the all share qualities that relate to the universal truth that was explored. Each book, in one way or another, shows problems that characters must overcome or cope with. Life presents everyone with a challenge whether that challenge be positive or negative that a person must oversee. Sometimes the challenge is harder on different people depending on how serious it may be. Like in 'Night' by: Elie Weisel, his situation was a lot more serious being that it was more of a matter of life and death. His challenge was to stay alive another day, this situation being so dire, it caused scars. His life challenge would be something that he will remember for the rest of his life, he will never forget the terrible things he went through that were so detrimental to his mental state, that changed his life forever. In the 'Lord of the Flies' by: William Golding the situation is very uncommon and also hard to overcome. Being that the kids had to manage to live under different circumstances then they ever thought were possible but they also had to try to figure out how to be rescued. Learning how to function in a new condition also caused many mental problems, they became delusional and began acting like savages, which would end up causing permanent damage. In the end of the book they killed two people. Their challenge was to also stay alive and in return they became uncivilized and became murderers, which changed their life forever due to the things that happened on the island. 'The Help' is quite a bit less serious being that the situation was brought on by the character because she had total control of the problem and what she did turned out to be very uplifting. When she wrote the book on the opinion of the colored help she took a big risk, but she brought that on her self. She wanted to change the way the world was at that time and look at the help just like they were like everyone else. She wanted people to see that they had went through way more than they gave them credit for. With her brave actions she didn't bring much change but she took a stand for what she believed in and it made a difference in many peoples life. Not only changing her life but they people around her as well.
    ...
    completely ruin it. After exploring this universal truth it has made it clear that these unfortunate things can happen to anyone, at anytime, for all reasons whether you brought them on your self or it just happened.
    Its very easily seen that this universal truth relates to everyone and every thing at some point in time. Little things effect a million people in the world every single day. The universal truth was highly extrusive throughout the three books that were previously analyzed. Which, all in all makes this universal truth widely interpreted and used by many authors.
