Essay On All Summer In A Day

568 words - 3 pages

Bullying people is not always done on purpose. Most bullying is done by accident. The
reason lots of bullying is done on accident is that the Bully is upset, jealous, or trying to be funny and accidentally hurts someone else. For example, in "All Summer in a Day", by Ray Bradbury, the reader learns that being jealous, upset, or trying to be funny can lead to accidentally bullying others. Just like William does to Margot in the story.
First, William tries to make a joke by locking Margot in a closet so she will not see the
Sun, but then the sun came out, and he wanted to go see it, so he forgot about Margot, and she did not get to see the sun. A part in the story that shows that William is trying to make a joke is when he says this. "Hey, everyone, let's put her in a closet before the teacher comes" (Bradbury 3). This is an example of how William is being tried to be funny, but he ends up bullying someone else. Also, a part in the story shows that William was not trying to be mean but ended up being mean. "She's still in the closet where we locked her" (Bradbury 4). This textual evidence shows that William had forgotten about her and was mean to her because she did not get to see the sun.

Those two parts from the story together show that sometimes making a joke can end up hurting others by accident.
Second, The kids have forgotten what the sun looks like, but Margot remembers it and
because the kids are jealous, they keep telling her that she is lying. A part in the text that supports this is, "had long since forgotten the co...
