I wounder how life would be if we weren't all equal?
I want to be different!
In the story "Harrison Bergeron" everyone has to be equal. This was part of the Constitutional Amendment that had to be followed as directed. Even with this law in place things still were not equal, even with the government help.
I am so strong without my weights. Look at me!!
Hazel and George, the two main characters in the story start to wounder how life would be if everyone wasn't just like each other or if people would cheat the law. If you broke the law their was a fine that had to be paid. George and Hazel heard about this guy named Harrison Bergeron, and he escaped jail and plotted to over throw the government.
Harrison decided that he could rebel. He tore his handicap weights right off and showed everyone how strong he actually was.
Ahh that noise again is coming.... Wait what were we talking about?
Harrison started the dance with the ballerinas. He started the throw the girls all over! Harrison didn't have to be worried about being help back anymore because he didn't have his weights on. This showed the dances how much talent they actually could have. Diana Moon Glampers loaded a gun and told Harrison to put his weights back on.
George and Hazel had been watching all of this on the tv and were in awh. Diana still had her gun out, and pointed at Harrison. Harrison refused to put his handicap weights back on and was shot. George and Hazel watched it happen, but didn't remember because their handicap stop went off.
Hazel and George both were very smart so they had a noise always going off in their ears to slow down their thinking. Well this would make them forget something or lose train of thought.
