He ended up using his natural instinct which was to save his whole crew over a bleeding cut. The fact that Louie is throwing himself into being the leader of the tough situation and using his mental skill to comprehend ideas which could lead to a different fate shows how skillful he really is. As can also be seen in the text: "He snatched the cord, reeled the raft to him, and climbed aboard. He rowed to Phil and Mac" (Hillenbrand 4, 5).

We did this by adding another tyre tube to a rope trailing behind the raft for people to grab onto if they let go and got stranded. This meant that nobody got embarrassed or annoyed by people letting go because the consequence was disqualification if the person got more than five metres away. It also ensured nobody drowned because they always had something to hold onto. This showed compliance with instructions because we listened to how we could get disqualified, absorbed that information and used it in the design of the raft. This was effective because even though nobody needed to use it people were assured that if they did let go they wouldn’t let the team down.

George Washington 's morale-boosting voice rang out against the stillness of the night, “I believe and declare my military strategy will win over the Hessians!” The hundreds of boats all let out cheers and shouts echoing across the frozen river. One of the rowers in Washington’s boat called to the others, “Do be careful,
Emma Arent Mrs. Aumann Honors English 9 Block 3BC 5 February 2017 The Great Man Odysseus When looking up the definition of a “good guy” you find the description being a morally correct person or character : a hero. In the book The Odyssey, translated by Robert Fagles, the main character Odysseus can be described as “good guy”.

In the epic, The Odyssey, the epic hero in the story exhibits heroic traits, the most important I think is loyalty. In the first episode, it shows loyalty when they are at the land of the Lotus Eaters. The three men that Odysseus brings along, want to stay with the Lotus Eaters because they are so addicted to the drug. Odysseus must literally drag the men to the ship and tie them up for them to be able to not stay on the island of the Lotus Eaters. In the second episode, another part that shows loyalty is when they are on the ship and the sirens come along.
