to write a persuasive essay.  

Moises Kaufman, the director of the Laramie Project,

deliberately references Elie Weisel’s Speech, “The Perils of

Indifference.”  Many times throughout The

Laramie Project, the phrase, ​“live and let live” was repeated. Does this

phrase reflect the value of tolerance, or acceptance?

After​ reading Weisel’s speech​ and s​electing key phrases

from the speech to connect to the play​, write a persuasive essay on the

consequences of being a bystander or being indifferent. Draw on different

perspectives from the play and attitudes of indifference or neutrality–examine

tone, word choice, and other elements of drama/literary devices while you

select your evidence.
