IGNITE TALK

This wasn't really my big question but now it is : the use of nuclear weapons.
What are nuclear weapons used for in this modern time ? Threats ? End all life on earth ? Show countries that you are superior?
What I learned during spring break is nuclear weapons is very deadly to life and earth. United states spends $179 billion for a nuclear arsenal.
The certain nuclear  bomb we have right now is the B83, it is 75 times powerful than the bombs that were dropped in Japan during World War 2.
This is sort of related to Fahrenheit 451 towards the end of book when Montag sees the city get bombed and demolished
That can describe today's world if there's a nuclear attack!

F451 Essay

The most shocking book that I've  read in my highschool life! Ray Bradbury is one creative mindful author. After reading Fahrenheit 451, it left me thinking about the  society we live in now . So many things are comparable to the story. There is  characters that make a impact in the story such as Clarisse and Beatty. Two characters with two different minds.

 When we started the story , we met Clarisse, she was a 17 year old girl. She was very social when she came upon Montag.  She was a mindful person. In the story she is different from everyone. People called her weird because she was open minded. Clarisse asked Montag questions that made him think. Ever since Montag talked to Clarisse , he started to change.  Clarisse family is unique because her family actually socialize. She told Montag about her uncle , when he was walking in the streets , he was arrested for being a 'pedestrian'. Clarisse represents us. We are very curious , when we see something different , we want to know more about it . Clarisse shows emotions.

 On the other hand we have Beatty. The fire chief or whatever he is . Seems like a normal good guy in the beginning. Beatty is anti-book and his job is to burn them. He doesn't like people knowing the facts about the past. Beatty was a guy that handled situations like when he talked to Montag about the death of the lady that got burned. He knew all the respond to questions. Towards the end he was threat to Montag. Montag knew he wasn't safe around Beatty because he was against things that were in books. Montag killed Beatty,  soon enough he noticed that Beatty was empty. By empty I mean he wanted to be gone,  he wanted be dead. His life was sad , he didn't like him self.

 Beatty and Clarisse,  two different characters. The way Bradbury described them  was imaginable. Clarisse represented the present time people like us. We may have technology taking over but we are still humans,  we still act like one, we are mindful . Beatty represented the the opposite.  He used up lies to make people believe uncertain things. He didn't want people to think way beyond. Beatty was controlling Montag majority of the time , that's why Montag killed him. What I think is that Clarisse was an angel , she told Montag if he was happy , which changed him. With out Clarisse Montag would of been dead.
