My Hero Gary Sinise Mr. Gary Sinise is best known as LT. Dan from the Oscar award winning film Forest Gump. Other films Mr. Sinise also stared in were the acclaimed Apollo 13 as well as the thriller Ransom just to name a few of the many. (www.garysinisefoundation.org) But these are not the qualities that make him a hero to me. Mr. Sinise is an inspiration to me because of his selfless devotion to honoring the men and women of the armed forces as well as first responders and all who serve our country. He does this through the foundations that he has started, one of which is the Gary Sinise Foundation.
As there are two sides to a coin, there are two groups of believers- one that supports pacifism, and the other that does not. The basic principle of Pacifism is mainly to oppose the idea and act of war and violence completely. The ideology stems from the severity and moral derogation of war, where violence is used to take away or injure innocent lives, deeming it to be morally incorrect. With this thread of thought comes the inevitable conclusion that violence is never justified. Truthfully, violence has never been a concept that could be morally justified.

Supreme Adventure One early morning, my brother, Perseus, and I were asked by our father, Zeus to go and retrieve his lightning bolts from the shop. Before making our way there, I grabbed my Supreme shovel, known for disintegrating people with one small touch. I had to grab it because recently in Mt. Olympus there was a lot of crime and killings going on between many demigods. After the sun being up for a short time, Perseus and I set out on this big adventure.
The two people who stand out during this time period are Martin Luther and John Calvin. They both took a stand against what they believed was wrong. Luther did not agree with the idea of indulgences, or the paid remission of temporal punishment, and Calvin wanted to be independent of the Church. The Church was not pleased with these outcries, and persecuted these men as heretics. The Church was criticized for a large number of things by the Protestants.
Roman society worked by everyone submitting to the emperor and sacrificing to the gods. That these Christians would not accept societal norms must have been infuriating for many romans, and is the starting point of their hatred towards the Christians. The roman religion which saw seeing forgiveness as performing a set of rituals had no interest in some morality or a set of dos and don’ts, which the Christians lived by. This was considered to be the realm of philosophy. There was no great concern for the afterlife here, and Polytheism with its acceptance of an unlimited number of gods meant that the society that practiced it was adaptable to change.
Pope John Paul II, born Karol Wojtyla was born on May 18th, 1920. In his youth, he wanted to become an actor, but when the Germans invaded Poland during World War II, they banned acting and anyone who continued to do anything considered artful was to be sent to a concentration camp. As well as that, they sent teachers with any rule-breaking Jew to concentration camps. Wojtyla fought in the underground movement, and around the same time his mother, father and brother died. Around that time, he then considered becoming a priest since his dreams of becoming an actor were ruined by the Germans.
There has always been war and there will always be war. The idea of “world peace” seems commendable but again is not practical. Just like people hold grudges, countries do as well. Some countries find it difficult to settle their differences and since countries have different outlooks on how their country should be run, they are not going to welcome the idea that all countries should be ran together. It is in human nature for people to quarrel therefore countries quarrel and some countries quarrel within themselves.
But for Hobbes the meaning of war is not simply that of a battle, but also the threat of a battle to come. Thus in the state of nature man finds himself in circumstances in which no one rules over him, but this is far from desirable given Hobbes account of human nature, and his definition of war. The first reason Hobbes gives for the state of nature being far from desirable is that human beings are naturally appetitive. He describes mankind as egoistic individuals motivated by their ever-changing and inexhaustible desires. Human beings are slaves to their desires; their actions are determined by the will of their strongest present desire.
