Sister Rosa: “We are supposed to carry out orders, not question them.” Song: “This is the way we wash our hands, wash our hands, wash our hands…” Highlights: the denial of responsibility and free thought Hypocrisy – Norm “Don’t go throwing your weight around.” Hypocritical because of his constant manipulation of Ahmed Hypocrisy – Norm “Human life is sacred.” Hypocrisy – Canon: “She has a scandalous reputation. In all my years… I have never had a more disgusting, a more depraved, a juicier, dirtier… kiss me, kiss me… kiss me harder.” Sister Rosa: “Hide your eyes, hide your eyes, hide your eyes.” Denial – “I hid my head in the poetic sands til world events forced me to pull it out again.” – Sally “Who pays the judges? Who decides what the law will be? For whom is it enforced? … You own the courts, you are the judges. That is why I defy your courts, and that is why I urge anyone who has any dealings with this force to defy it also.” – Sally Ahmed: “One of the less desirable aspects of your society… would be the tendency of the mass media to be the mouthpiece of the big commercial and military interests. They brainwash the people.” (link to above point) “I’m sorry for all of you… You’re cowards. Afraid of life…. It’s not a set of rules or a great sacrifice of the self. I’m going to live it to the fullest stretch of my imagination.” Sally: “There is no justice.” Sister Rosa: This is not a court of justice.” Headmistress: “This is a court of law.” Tension between conservatism and innovation “Sally Banner is a rebel both in thought and deed.” – Headmistress “She would not bow.” – Sister Rosa “Answer the call of my blood direct!” “I believe in the flesh and the blood as being wiser than the intellect.” – Sally “Perhaps it is sometimes desirable to effect an alteration in the status quo.” “But my old man wanted to change things, Ahmed, he tried to buck the system – you can’t do that!” “Me name’s Norm Gallagher…” appearing friendly, but actually rough handshake that asserts dominance over Ahmed “All you Asian students coming out here to study, and then going back to your own countries. It’s a good thing, I reckon.” Irony – attempting to be open-minded re multiculturalism (innovation), yet juxtaposed is the conservative view “go back to your own countries”.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
