Essay Topic 1
The Rodney King story affected the whole nation. Is it something that happened because of the timing, i.e. even if it was not Rodney King there would have been some other event that would have resulted in the same outrage and riots, meaning to imply that society at that time was ripe for a disturbance? Or is it unique to the issue, which would have resulted in the same results even in a different time?

Essay Topic 3
Reginald Denny beautifully describes how he is able to see beauty in the midst of all the ugliness around him. Considering that he was painfully involved in the trials, it is very remarkable that he should behave and react that way after everything that happened. What does Denny have that the others don't, which makes him react and cope this way? Is his form of coping a sign of submission, acceptance, or of moving on? Is it healthy and is it ideal? Are there any lessons in Denny's story that can be considered a best practice by others?
