In 2002, he became the 47th governor of Texas and Perry won two more elections. In this paper, I want to focus on Rick Perry’s full term as the governor of Texas from 2000 to 2015 because this is the turned point of his timeline. Rick Perry decided to run for Governor of Texas as Republican after Governor George W. Bush elected president of the United States. He was elected in his own right to full terms and he won his first full term in 2002. Rick Perry left office on January 19, 2015 after a record of 14 years as the governor of Texas.
Yes any of the greasers can be a hero by just doing one little thing and they don’t even realize that they are a hero. Darry is a hero because after his parents died, he had to take care of his siblings Ponyboy and Sodapop. The text states on page two it states “ Darry’s hard and firm and rarely grins at all. But then, Darry’s gone through a lot in his twenty years, grown up too fast.” This shows that he had to take care of his siblings when his parents had died. Darry is also a hero when he took care of Ponyboy when he was sick.
The novel ‘Heroes’ by Robert Cormier features a young war veteran, Francis Cassavant, who returns to his childhood home of Frenchtown from serving in the Second World War and has suffered severe deformities from a fall “on a grenade” which has led the readers to sympathise him and to believe that he is a “poor boy”. Francis has returned to Frenchtown with a specific purpose of killing Larry LaSalle, who is first portrayed as the glamorous and perfect man with a “smile that revealed dazzling movie-star teeth” and “a touch of Fred Astaire in his walk”. Through Larry’s character, Cormier is able to explore the various themes of the novel: masks, power, heroism, and guilt. Although Larry LaSalle is presented as a “hero” and a “champion”, there is an air of ambiguity about him that suggests that he is wearing a mask, exploring the theme of masks, as it contrasts with his “dazzling movie star” good looks and his “big hero” persona. The ambiguity initially starts in the very beginning when Francis mentions that he is “going to kill” Larry LaSalle; Cormier uses this technique of foreshadowing and first person narration so that the readers are constantly alert to the subtle early warnings that Larry LaSalle is not what he made out to be, that he might be wearing a mask.

Both sides are disgusting, both sides are flawed. The British killed little Jerry Sanford, and poor Ned the slave. The Patriots killed Sam and Life.

At first, he was fearful of the creature, but after the death of his young brother, William, he came to a conclusion. “Two years had now nearly elapsed since the night on which he first received life; and was this is first crime (pg 50)?” Frankenstein had created life, and in doing so, created an independent murderer responsible for deaths of those close to him. He had been so neglectful to reason in his science, and so blind in his obsession, that the very thing he created as a compensation made his pain worse.
