Discussion 2 I chose “You Were On My Mind That Day” story by Miles White.The story revolves around the unnamed characters on the 105th floor, who were asked to evacuate the building because the building was exposed to fire due to an aircraft collision. The staff did not take the matter seriously because they thought it was just an emergency exercise. After the smoke rose, they hurriedly left the building, but it was too late. The smoke had filled all the areas, and breathing became difficult in the place. Then “Somebody screamed that the plane had hit the other building and we knew this could not be a coincidence; somebody was trying to kill us” (White, 2014, para. 6).The situation was very frightening amid the people shouting and their gatherings, and then the man and the woman made sure that death was inevitable in this situation. They had to jump out the window before they jumped the man told her I love you, but the woman could not respond to him because of her fear, but she said as I fell through the air, the last thing on my mind was you (White, 2014). I liked the story because it seemed to describe a fire incident that happened to me when we were in high school, and we were on the fourth floor, and it was difficult to go down and evacuate all the floors even though we were practicing that it was a really scary day. The story also combines excitement, mystery, love, and this type of story I like. Reference: White, M. (2014). You were on my mind that day. Flash fiction magazine. Discussion 3 Both studies caused significant harm, but I preferred the Stanford Prison study because I had previously seen it. The study aimed to determine the effect of roles and environment on individuals, but it resulted in significant physical and moral harm to the participants, and the experience spiraled out of control, with the prisoners suffered from sadistic practices and degrading punishments at the hands of the jailers, losing their privacy, and displaying signs of emotional distress of them.
