In her mind, she believes that she could figure out what kind of person they were by judging their outer appearance. Mrs. Turpin believes that doing good deeds made her the better person and would surely get her a first class ticket into heaven. She felt like these principles made her also a better Christian: "To help anybody out that needed it was her philosophy of life. She never spared herself when she found somebody in need, whether they were white or black, trash or decent" (321). True enough, it didn't matter to her how fat, unattractive, or poor she was, just as long as she
The words of her father while on his deathbed seems to be what I felt Barton lived by in her life; “As a Patriot he bade serve my country with all I had, even my life if need be; as the daughter of an accepted Mason, he bad me seek and comfort the afflicted everywhere, and as a Christian he charged me to honor God and love mankind”. She of course had her faults as everyone does, but they did not always have bad effects. While she was not keen with others surpassing her, it helped her to also go farther than she would have most likely imagined. By standards of today’s idea of Christianity, it would depend on how you look at it. She accomplished a great deal of good in the United States, and in the world itself, but is the question would be if what she did was good enough to

Lee concluded that slavery would help both white and black races grow equally. In the letter Lee also questions the motivations and morals of the founding fathers about what equality really meant to them. The letter seems to be ironic, reason being Robert E.

The reason that the African slaves were needed was because they were strong and good workers. The colonist had used the natives originally but they did not work as hard as they would have liked. The natives also had contracted small pox which took an enormous toll on them limiting the amount of slaves they had for labor. So they began trading and purchasing African slaves due to the fact that they had developed some immunity to these diseases. (McKay, Chap 21, pg 570) In order to get a good perspective on what being a slave was like, we will look into a narrative written by Olaudah Equiano.
My favorite verse from that section was Exodus 21:22-25. I had never heard of the premature fine or retaliation and it is very interesting because it does paint a perfect picture that even in biblical times it was not okay to abort. My favorite part from the philosophical section was when they talked about quality of life as a reason for abortion. I liked the example the article gave of May, Jesus’s mother. She was poor and had a baby that was not her husbands, yet she decided to keep it and it was the savior of the world.
community gained an insight on how blacks were forced to live and what they had to face. Theinfluence of the Harlem Renaissance was not limited within the United States only.
