Mr. Luchak Monday, December 08, 2008 Courage: Well, in the book To Kill a Mockingbird Atticus Finch shows a lot of courage, throughout the book, in the next few paragraphs there will be passages that show Atticus and how he shows courage. There are many other virtues that Atticus shows, but courage is just the main one, because he’s very thoughtful he helps many people in To Kill a Mockingbird, he always thinks about the future and plans ahead of how harsh to be on punishments and on how to protect him and his family. Atticus, really uses the virtue courage when he’s waiting infront of the jail where Tom Robinson was because Atticus knew a mob would come to kill him the day before the trial, and then when he was fighting for the freedom of Tom Robinson there’s a lot of courage being showed, and lastly when he tries to tell Helen Robinson that Tom Robinson got shot and then tries to help her get over it. “You know what we want,” another man said. “Get aside from the door, Mr. Finch.” “You can turn around and go home again, Walter,”
He is always giving more evidence stating that the Indians were not being taken care of unless the British needed them for war. His evidence all points back to his thesis, saying that the Indians fought really well and so the British would always try to make them happy when they knew they might be going to war soon. He really only has one primary source that he uses throughout the essay, and that is previous writings by
Also it is man vs. society because of the whole war going on. The author created suspense when at the end the soldiers were going to take Cush away and Johnny told them that the war was over and luckily let him go. I inferred that Cush and Johnny would become friends because whenever two
This appears to show that the party is mainly after Winston and don't care as much about catching Julia as a thought criminal. At this point the reader is drawn into the book and awaits the conclusion of this important meeting. Maybe the reader is even more exited than Winston and Julia because he has followed their every steps from the beginning and want to see Winston and Julia become heroes by destroying the party and maybe discovering who Big Brother actually is. For Winston this seems probably impossible but the reader knows that anything can happen in a book so he gets captivated and is waiting for the final decision of O'Brien. As always in Oceania the people are being manipulated and in this case they make Winston and Julia believe that the brotherhood exists and we can see that Winston gets tricked and is ready to anything the party wants.
In our lives, we can have a lot of joyful and beautiful moments, but we must not forget that sooner or later, challenges appear on our way. Louise Erdrich's "The Red Convertible" gives an example of life's most difficult challenge: Lyman must accept that his brother, Henry, has lost the will to live after fighting in war. The purpose of this essay is to use Erdrich’s story to show how much war can change someone’s life for worse. When young men go off to war, they painfully become aware of their own mortality. Many 18-year-old boys are drafted off to fight for their country-when most had never picked up a gun.
In the novel, Finney comes back to school so certain of himself “with such health,” he keeps doing things he shouldn’t be doing, which makes him believe he is still eligible to participate in the war (Knowles 104). Just like Finney, Neil in the movie is so sure and proud of himself for preforming in the play that he uses one of his soliloquies to direct an apology towards his dad; this makes his dad even madder (Dead Poets’ Society). Since Neil and Finney are both courageous and “most innocent of all” the characters, it’s harder to face the reality that’s in front of them, like how Neil can’t comprehend his dads firm answer, and how Finney won’t believe he is actually cripples (Telgen). Furthermore, Finney, who is brave, suggests jumping off the tree with Gene. Although Gene almost falls off, Finney catches him and saves Gene’s life, but he “practically lost it” too (Knowles 33).
He states that he is content with dying because at least the wont die a coward. He also talks about not getting killed and how fortunate he is for surviving as long as he did. Despite the rest of the journals being hopeful and grateful, there is one entry where he refers to life during warfare “hell”. However this is perfectly understandable due to everything he has been through, he is most definitely sick of the war and the violence. While both jobs are extremely important and are jobs that require strength and determination, if I had to choose between the two I would choose Lloyds job.
It turns out that Miguel's grandparents are forgiving him for killing his brother, which is the big conspiracy that set this whole thing in motion. And finally Rondell and Miguel decide to stop running from their past and go back to the group home to make amenends. We Were Here is one powerful book by Matt De La Pe`na because it could help anyone understand more of themselves. Also this book could help those whom have had issues overcoming serious problems. I loved this book also because when miguel narrates it is like your a speaking to a real person.
In the movie, the father Guido and his son Giosué are taken by Nazis. Instead of Guido telling his son, the truth he tells Giosué "You have to score one thousand points. If you do that, you take home a tank with a big gun" (Life is Beautiful). This technique saves Giosué during the Holocaust for a couple reasons. The first reason is that Giosué was more worried about winning the game then he was on staying alive because he did not think about the possibility that he could be killed.
I think of this too but I mostly think of stepping up to the plate with a deadly disease and still going up there hoping for a hit. When Lou was diagnosed with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) aka “Lou Gehrig’s Disease”, he didn’t care. He faced this as he would any situation, with high hopes but slim outcomes. Although he knew there was a slim chance of living, he still played. Also besides that he got beaned in the head and then played the next day.
