Guilhermo Gonzalez, Line Illuminator.

This role is to select two passages from the reading selection that you think are worthy of being read, shared, and possibly discussed with your readers. The Line Illuminator writes down the passages word for word in quotes, citing the page # from where the lines come from in parentheses at the end. You are free to pick whichever quotes you like, but they must have some sort of significance or importance. Pick lines you find insightful or lines that confuse you and throw you for a loop. Under each passage, in one concise paragraph per quote, you must explain the significance of the line and why you selected it.  Add and properly cite 2 images to complement your post.

"Everywhere in the streets there were demonstrations for and against the veil." (pg.5)

To begin with, the quote I choose today reflects a big problem the society now a days lives every single day. This has been a concern all around the world and especial the middle east. Many people consider this religious act a morality abuse. The veil reflects many problems we man and women live upon day after day which is persecution. Although this is a strong statement I interpret that the veil system hides the character, appearance and personality of a woman or girl. There are many agrees and disagrees in the fact of baning this so vigourous system. In matter a fact, I agree in the end forever of this system. “We are all equal in the fact that we are all different. We are all the same in the fact that we will never be the same. We are united by the reality that all colours and all cultures are distinct & individual. We are harmonious in the reality that we are all held to this earth by the same gravity. We don't share blood, but we share the air that keeps us alive." (unknown) I believe that in the world of today we should live under a principles of justice and especially unity. The world depends on the wonderful women spread around our globe,  women and men are essential to the continuation of the human species. We should respect each other. What the veil creates is a shield that hides their faces from the real world, it builds a world of shame in where men are more powerful than women.


"The reason for my shame and for the revolution is the same: the difference between social classes." (pg.33)

Many people have died building what the world of today. There were many obstacles in their ways, however they had the courage and determination to keep on going. One of the  obstacles many people had to face was the difference between social classes. Early in our past, a man who was born poor would forever will remain poor and die poor. Let us take in consideration, the people who lived the early era of the feudalism in europe. A pleasant born in that time period would have to provide a service, labor, and goods to landlord according to arrangement and degree. They were required to work on fields, taking care of the livestock, and provide physical help on building projects. They worked several days per week on the different domains there lord assigned them. Yet, it did not matter how much work and determination a pleasant consitsed and exerted he would not jump up a social class. Which lead to create great boundaries of differences between social classes. Although we have lived a system of social class very strict we have know created a world of opportunities in which man can move up or down the social classes. Now a days it does matter the determination one man has since it will face his outcome in life, whether he will be a richer man or a poorer one.
