Facebook Launch a Campaign against child violence

01 Dec

Facebook Launch a Campaign against child violence.

Change your facebook profile picture to a cartoon from your childhood and invite your friends to do the same. Until monday(Dec.6) there should be no human faces on facebook, but an invasion of memories. This is for violence against children.

It is clear that the situation of violence against children and child labor will not be reversed by putting cartoon pictures on Facebook, but it is a way of promoting social awareness to take further actions to change the situation.

So I Choose Tom Saywer 😀


Character description

Tom Sawyer is a saucy boy, a natural show-off, who likes to show his authority over other boys. He is around 10–12 years old as gathered from hints in Twain’s works. He was born in a town on the Mississippi River, where he and Huck grew up.Tom is supposed to represent the carefree and wonderful world of boyhood in the antebellum era. As many boys of those days, he likes going barefoot most of the time. His best friends include Joe Harper and Huckleberry Finn. In The Adventures of Tom Sawyer, Tom’s infatuation with classmate Rebecca “Becky” Thatcher is apparent. He lives with his cousin Sid, his cousin Mary, and his stern Aunt Polly; in addition, he has another aunt, Sally Phelps. Tom is the son of Polly’s dead sister.

In Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, Tom is only a minor character, and is used as a foil for Huck, particularly in the later chapters of the novel. Tom’s immaturity and obsession with stories and his imagination put Huck’s planned rescue of Jim in great jeopardy. Throughout the novel, Huck’s intellectual and emotional development is a central theme, and by re-introducing a character from the beginning (Tom), Twain is able to highlight this evolution in Huck’s character.
