The image with Christopher Columbus and Osama bin Laden is showing the views by the Native Americans showing they think both the people are terrorists. In P.T.I. there views are very similar to the image because Christopher Columbus was the start of putting Indians in reservations. History can be very persuasive and different when its viewed from multiple views. Native Americans have been mistreated and been taken advantage of ever since Columbus arrived so they blame it on him, because more or less it was his fault.

Personification, Lord of the Flies Chapter 6

"thunderous plume of spray leaping half-way up the cliff." (Golding, ch. 6)

This is personifying the water, describing the action of it on the cliff that its cascading off of. Golding used this language because he is foreshadowing something that is going to happen in the future.

When I think of this quote, this what I think of, water cascading off of a mountain.
