The picture of last of the recent past American Idols shows a lot of interesting things about our society: what we value, who we value. They are all beautiful, interesting people--and they happen to be of different backgrounds (some of them). We have a young-looking man, a black woman, a dreadlocked fellow, a European-sounding gal (black hair, top right), a totally pure person (blonde in blue), an edgy rocker (bottom right), and a smooth-speaking Australian (top left). The white girl in the front is interesting because she is a country gal who grew up with horses and hard work. The "idols" represent a lot about our culture. They are all attractive, right? They are different, right? They are unique, maybe. Hard to be truly unique, though people in our society keep trying and trying and trying (to be stars and famous). Sometimes, depression, anorexia, even suicide is the result. Scary to me, especially now that I have a daughter and she'll want or try to look like these people. What if she doesn't?

This adds meaning to my nonfiction experience by showing what the homesles might look like or what they do on their spare time and where they live when they have no other place to go and alot of times the street is the only place they have to sleep and whatever. So the section that I picked out of the book relates to the picture of homelessness and the housing for the homeless is hard, because you can see that alot of people sleep on the street.

This picture shows how a japanesse soldier can easly take a life of a U.S. soldier. Something similar happened in the book.

This picture shows the Hindenburg of when it caught fire and that show my nonfiction experience. By them way the Hindenburg was when it was its last trip it ever made many people died on it and many people will remember that day. Also shows meaning to me by what the ship was like for its last moments

This relates to my book because it shows just part of the distruction the the bombs caused to the city and all that lived in or around the drop zone. It also shows what has happend to a once extrodanay city

This picture makes an impact on me because it shows this little girl all alone, and 2 other girls in the background leaving her out. Noone should be left out or treated wrong, and noone should have to go through the pain if people can fix it. Everyone has some kind of impact on everyone's life.

This picture represents that if you want to get a very high score break your clubs just like the guy in this photo breaking his driver.

This picture adds meaning to my book because it describes the inner parts of a small engine. It shows the internals and how they would function if in operation. It names all the parts and shows were they are located inside of a small engine. It helps explain what I would be talking about when I do my presentation over this book.
