This world has many heroes; the T.V, radio, and media shout out their names. Its apparent they that they gave their best, and they deserve their fame; but the heroes that should be shown are the ones that go with the game and never shout their name. the game players who are quietly doing deeds that help and show others their best, but that the world never shouts their name or recognize the impact they have. We need to recognize the heroes that people don’t know by name. we need to show them that we care, what better way to show them we appreciate them than to carve a replica of them in something as enduring as rock.
Hearing this made me want to help him but at that same time I was left feeling uneasy. I was much undecided; he was very unpredictable. If I helped, I wouldn’t know how he would react. His very strong and stubborn personality gave me the courage to be less shy than I usually was. I felt motivated to make a change in this man’s life and also my own.

The Red Tail Pilots On October 9th, 1940, the U.S. Army Air Corps began allowing black men to join its ranks, ushering in an entirely new era of military aviation. Over the course of the next four years, nearly one thousand pilots would go through vigorous training to become military aviators. These aviators would often be assigned the most degrading tasks the Air Corps had to offer. However they proved themselves worthy of their title by war's end; racking up 109 confirmed kills, 111 German airplanes shot down, and 150 German airplanes destroyed on the ground. They were among the finest World War II aviators.
In our nation's national anthem, one of the most important lines is that which reads, "the land of the free, and the home of the brave." One thing that we cannot take for granted is that we are the home of the free, solely because of the brave. The men and women of our nation's military have sacrificed a great deal for their country. They go overseas and sacrifice their lives physically so the people of America can continue
Feeling so hopeless in situations that can get to difficult it sometimes feels almost impossible to deal with them, but when Individuals who have the capacity to gain an accurate and deep intuitive understanding of a person or a thing are able to experience the action or thing that is saving or being saved from a sin, an error or evil. Sometimes it takes a certain situation or problem to occur in life, that makes an individual realize what really matters in life.

I have never met a person, male or female, black or white, smart or dumb, that has ever said “I want to be second best.” We all want to feel that we are accomplished. I am in no way an exception to this idea. I do want to be the best, which is not a bad thing but it becomes an issue when purposely hurt another just to make us feel better. Also, the way we treat people that are not similar to us. It’s happened
The United States of American has risen from an optimistic idea by our Founding Fathers and evolved into the great nation that it is today. It would be difficult to describe only one aspect of what makes America great, as there are many values and ideas which have not only shaped our nation, but inspired individuals at home and all around the world. The “American Dream” is a way of life, based on the idea that if you work hard you will be successful. This idea has endured for well over a century, and people have come to America from all over the world for opportunity and a better way of life. I know this firsthand and have felt the inspirational power of this belief, because my own Father came to the United States with very little money, but an incorrigible desire to work hard and succeed.
