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. Doodle died because his brother didn't want to be weighed down anymore.
The assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. devastated a large majority of people around the world. His works of nonviolent acts against racism motivated many, including civil rights activist Cesar Chavez, to solve matters without resorting to inhumane behaviors. Inspired by Dr. King Jr.’s work, Chavez and his union of labor workers devoted themselves to helping those in need through peaceful protests. Similar methods are proven to be successful; Mahatma Gandhi, for instance, gained a great deal of supporters because of his pacifism and tranquil methods of boycotting against British domination. Despite brutal and savage methods of persuasion slowly gaining support, Chavez proves that nonviolent actions are superior; he does so by using ethos in order to uphold moral standards, logos (in reference to the past), and pathos to appeal to the emotions of his audience.
The brother was easily the guilty suspect in this case. The question here is whether or not Doodle’s cause of death was his brother’s own pride. Throughout the book, The Scarlet Ibis, Doodle’s brother gives us a plethora of quality examples as to why the death of his brother was surely his to bear. The brother was overly prideful. On page 347 the brother admits his guilt, “’What are you crying for?’ asked Daddy, but I couldn’t answer.
One of the first signs of the narrator's feelings is in the third paragraph when he says “It was bad enough having an invalid brother, but having one who possibly was not all there was unbearable, so I began to make plans to kill him by smothering him with a pillow.” This shows that the narrator was disappointed and horrified of having a brother who would not be all there. It also shows that he was so embarrassed by his brother that he would even kill his brother so he wouldn't be embarrassed. Another excerpt from the story that shows or helps develop the theme is in the
My Personal Response to the Letter from Birmingham Jail A letter excoriating Dr. King and praising the city’s prejudiced police force was issued by a group of Clergymen. While currently in jail at Birmingham as a victim of racism King addresses everybody with intend to bring injustice and aim to stop it for the good of all mankind. Dr. King wrote “Letter from Birmingham Jail” a focus on ethic discrimination as a response to follow clergy men. Dr. King compared Socrates as an important thinker which he created tension to inspire mankind to grow with this current tension that everybody is facing but, encourages nonviolence. He is also ultimately calling all white moderates liars or worse ignorant of themselves while at this time, directing the problem to the Clergymen and encouraging them not only to praise
When he got involved in patriot groups it shows he was a true patriot. When he made the Boston Massacre art piece to stir up hatred against the British it showed he hated them and despised them, also when he helped in the Boston Tea Party it showed he hated the British. When he warned Samuel Adams and John Hancock that the British were coming showed he was brave and believed in this country here today. Paul Revere accomplished being a hero, a fighter, and a true patriot when he spied on the British was a messenger, fought for his country was part of patriot organizations helped in the Boston Tea ,Party warned that the British were coming that is how you can tell he is an american hero and will fight for his country. He also accomplished being a skilled
Some saw it as his way of escaping his duty to his country while others saw it as a brave gesture for their celebrity to potentially put his life at risk for the sake of their nation. Sinatra even made a strange offer to the FBI, saying that he was fully wiling to do anything necessary for the good of his country, no matter the cost. Even though he couldn’t serve, Sinatra saw how the war affected everyone left at home. He wrote his initial hit, “I’ll Never Smile Again”, as an outlet for the emotions felt in relation to the war. This down-to-earth, raw vocalization of the hurt of those who lost loved ones epitomizes Sinatra’s unique ability to relate to others and reach them through music.
That day they lost not only a general, but a man whose job was to help the people. He was seen as an ambitious man who needed to be stopped. Right before Anthony gave his speech Brutus came to explain why the murder was a just cause. In The Tragedy of Julius Caesar, Anthony shows his ability to tell the truth through dishonesty and irony. He starts off his eulogy by saying “Friends romans countrymen, lend me your ears;” he uses this as an introduction
He blamed himself for the tragic killing of his elderly father. Hunched in a corner, he banged his head, silently ruminating his grief and his hatred, entreating his friends to leave him alone….At the end of his tether he asked to join the Maquis. He had only one thing in his mind: revenge” (171). Here we see that Nafa has a clear goal , that he will avenge the death of his father by fighting the government. Many would agree that this is a just cause, much like the US governments’ efforts to eliminate the scourge of drugs from the US.
For example one the most well known protests was tons of people boycotting buses. To persuade people to join the civil rights movement he used his speech skills, which was one of his best qualities. One of the most popular speeches was by him. Martin Luther King Jr. had one goal and that was to give everyone equal rights and he didn’t care what the consequences were and he knew that he was in danger every time he spoke but, he kept going.
