Frederick Douglass and Abraham Lincoln are the true definition of heroism because they sacrificed their lives for the greater good and benefit of the public. “This man shall be remembered. Oh, not with the statues’ rhetoric. Not with the legends and poems and wreaths of bronze alone, but with the lives grown out of his life, the lives fleshing his dream of the beautiful, needful thing”-SB pg70. Frederick Douglass is a hero not just because he fought for the public, but because he was a “... Negro beaten to his knees, exiled”SB pg70.
He goes in depth about some of the scenery around him on the beach, like the bloody abandoned shoes, broken-handled shovel, and smashed radios. Pyle chose this organization for his article because the audience needed to be eased into the picture of death and destruction. Pyles builds ethos by showing himself to be sensitive to needs of the audience because he has to be gentle for the people of loved ones that’ll read his article with tears in their eyes. Pyles also uses examples of pathos in his article. He shares the sacrifices of all the soldiers he is seeing upon the beach shore, all while honoring them.
(Knapp) Muhammad faced discrimination in a very rough time and handled it very professionally. Some believe this is his greatest act he’s ever done. As he did this, it proved to the white man that maybe not all colored people were how they envisioned that they were. If Muhammad had not taken these actions, then it’s possible that colored people would not even be integrated into our sports yet. Muhammad Ali contributed not only to the US but the whole world.

In the tale, three drunk rioters make a pledge of loyalty to chase "Death" who killed an old friend of theirs. The rioters dismiss Death after coming across treasure, but their own greediness overcomes the men that eventually leads them to kill off each other. At the beginning of the prologue the pardoner justifies the theme of his tale, "My theme is and always was one and the same: Radix malorum est cupiditas" (Chaucer 1). The idea of justice was that the rioters' desire and greed, cause each to die by death. The rioters display a common trait in greed to fulfill their avarice in riches.
You could blame the war… A moment of carelessness or bad judgment or plain stupidity carried consequences that lasted forever.

The Color of Pride In James Hurst's "The Scarlet Ibis" the red imagery is symbolized as pride and how it can get its way in a persons life and causes a person to make bad choices. There are many pieces of evidence to prove this and I have chosen two pieces to prove this correct. The first piece is "He had been bleeding from his mouth and his neck and the front of his shirt was a brilliant red". This shows that Doodle paid for his brothers pride and selfishness.

The first deadly sin implemented into the story is pride. Three rioters become aware of their friend being taken by death. The men claim that they will “slay this traitor Death” (371).

This quote demonstrates the deadly sin of pride because the foolish rioters think they can avenge their friend against an unknown enemy.
He completes his goal to be remembered in the minds of his people through his slaying of Humbaba and the Bull of Heaven. But, he loses his close companion Enkidu and his chance at a restored youth. He goes from being someone who throws his weight around and uses his strength to take what he wants to someone who is respected and revered as a hero by the people of his town. However, I do not see him to be a hero. Yes, he changes for the better and completes heroic acts along the way, but many things he does are done to help improve his reputation or used to show off.
