Atticus Finch and Aunt Alexandra Having a positive attitude and fostering virtues toward children is the key they will set within the home and the community. Providing comfort, love, nurture, and freedom to develop in a tolerant atmosphere, but also constantly teaching them harsh lessons for them to avoid mistakes, and be successful in life. Parents are their children’s strongest role model and greatest influence, positive or negative your children will take the example as a pattern for the way life is supposed to be lived. In the novel To Kill a Mockingbird, by Harper Lee both Atticus Finch and Aunt Alexandra have strong senses of morality and both understand how things should be, but each reacts to things differently as Aunt Alexandra is very class conscious, judges people by their family while Atticus rejects this notion of “fine families” and values honesty, hard work, fairness and compassion. By examining the differing parenting skills and contrasting ancestry and family pride of both Atticus and Alexandra it is certain that Alexandra is more committed to southern tradition, while Atticus is the ideal man who shows ultimate accomplishment and achievement.
She fills her troops with a will to survive for their families, gives them motivation that they will be rewarded with the outcome of victory, and also fills them with patriotism which is the inspiration to protect their country. After reading this speech out loud it gave me a better perspective on how the Queen’s tone plays a big role in filling her men with courage and inspiration. She wants to touch her troops emotionally and make them feel connected in a way that will inspire the troops to fight for their queen and the country they represent. She states that she is “nothing but a weak, feeble woman” but follows it by stating “I have the heart and stomach of a king”. To me that line is filled with a great amount of emotion, if I were one of her troops I would be greatly inspired and ready to take on any obstacle in which the act of war may

Bronte uses figurative language in order to illustrate Jane’s development in her accepting of Rochester and willingness to “attend” to him. Jane’s character development is clearly displayed when saying “for i became his vision, as I am still his right hand” , Jane becoming Rochester’s vision is extremely significant to character development because Rochester’s “great dark eyes” were a symbol of his power. Thus this language conveys Jane’s gain of power, and Rochester’s dependence shift to Jane. “never did i weary of reading to him; never did I weary of conducting him where he wished to go : of doing for him what he wished to be done.” This shows she has matured enough to love him for his innermost qualities, and how Jane is willing to accept him as he is, which is a contrast to when Rochester tries to dress her “like a doll” in chapter 24. Which is also significant in the lines ; “ ‘Jane have you a glittering ornament around your neck?’ ‘I had a gold watch-chain.
National Honor Society By: Aleesta Clodfelter National Honor Society is having the characteristics of leadership, character, and service. I think that National Honor Society is the right thing for me because my parents have instilled in me a sense of responsibility and the care for others.

Leadership plays a huge role. I’ve always tried to show more of an independent role as a student, and help others who don’t quite understand the things that I do.
Both supported each other and both were very smart. “Abigail aligned her responses to fit alongside her husband’s own internal odyssey toward the inevitable. Her only political ambition was to “reign in the heart of my husband”. That is my throne and there i aspire to be absolute. On the other hand, if he was elected to the presidency, it would be a flattering and glorious reward for his lifetime of public service, and he would obviously need a wife to hover about you, to bind up your temples, to mix your bark and pour out your coffee.” (page 176) Abigail Adams supported her husband in every possible way; even if it was not something she believed in.

Some of the values I live my life by are respect, honesty, being non-judgemental, hard working and grateful. I always try to treat people the way that I would like to be treated. These values were instilled in me by my parents, especially my mother.
