Dog Sees God Response Paper Dog sees God is a play that revolutionizes one of the most traditional comic strips into the modernization of the teenage world. It has completely changed my opinion of all the characters from Peanuts in an irreversible manner. Charlie Brown will never again just be that boy with the yellow shirt, Linus will know much more than how to drag around a blanket, and Pig Pen is anything but the filthy kid he once was. Watching these characters as their teenage selves allowed me to empathize with them in a way that would not be possible just by reading the comic strip. For the characters in Dog Sees God, life’s a harsh place. CB’s dog contracted rabies and killed a little yellow bird (that was always hanging out with CB’s dog). CB’s dog is taken to a center where he is put down. Nobody attends his funeral to support CB except for his Goth-for-the-week sister. The play goes on to deal with CB asking his childhood friends where dogs go when they die. Upon being ignored by all his friends, CB turns to Beethoven, the gay pianist who has been shunned by the rest of the school. CB kisses Beethoven, and the story becomes one of self identity and sexuality. Once this is brought up to Matt, CB’s homophobic and germaphobic best friend, he goes out of his way to make Beethoven’s life a living hell. Beethoven is tormented and commits suicide, leaving CB to wonder whether anyone is listening. It turns out that at that same moment, he receives a letter from his pen pal, the one person who has been objectively listening the entire time. As an inspiring actress, there are many moments of the play that allowed me to relate to some of the characters as they were brought forth in real life. All the characters were portrayed in a way that drew me back to high school and brought back some of the memories. They were portrayed as the stereotypical personas that exist in each and every high school. This leads into the first scene that made a memorable impact
Dog Sees God is a remarkable play and I would encourage everyone to watch it at least once, however I have to warn you that it does contain some explicit language and some subjects that may upset some people. The message that I got out the play was that everyone is different and it ok for me to be myself, in addition bullying someone is wrong and if you not the one doing the bullying but you watching and laughing then you are just as guilty, so instead of just going along with everyone else that….

“Dog Sees God,” an unofficial parody of “Peanuts” that played March 5 at the Struble Theater, tells the story of C.B. (presumably “Charlie Brown”), a teenager surrounded by doubt and conflict. Most of the cast did a respectable job at communicating both the humor and confusion of adolescence, but one actress stuck out to me most. Katie Chang, though appearing in only one scene as “Van’s Sister,” completely stole the show and blew everybody out of the water. Her performance managed to be natural and….

God Sees the Truth, but Waits by Leo Tolstoy
1. Does the story reflect what you know about Tolstoy?
This story was based on Tolstoy’s religious views as it had a connection between his thoughts and the story.
2. What is the meaning of the title?
In my opinion, we can see that Ivan lived a horrible life because of wrong accusations, so he had two paths to choose, either to revolt which is fretting under miserable circumstances or complete surrender to God. He chooses the latter. Ivan was….
Essay “God sees the truth, but waits”
Which kind of people can you never put all your trust on? Strangers. Why? Because, you don’t know their intensions. In “God sees the truth, but waits” by Leo Tolstoy; Aksyonof gets sent to jail, for a crime he didn’t commit. But, during this experience Aksyonof gets to know God, on his adventure to prison. In this story, the moral is that a stranger may have bad intensions that can harm you and the way he gets to know God through, loneliness and helplessness….
This, I think sometimes, god waits before delivering his justice, not because he wants to hurt you but because the most appropriate punishment that the criminal deserves, and the most appropriate compensation that the victim deserves, can be awarded only after the passage of that time period. Nothing could be more rewarding for Aksionov than the attainment of that highest and most pleasurable state of consciousness in which, the self merges with the cosmos by letting go of its 'ego'….
