He was an honest, good-hearted man who wished for nothing more than to live a good life with his wife and children. He did all he could to stop the spread of vengeance and corrupting in Salem though he came too late. Even with him committing adultery, he continued through the end to be a hero with the best intentions in mind for justice and peace in his
Martin Luther King, Jr once had said,” I have decided to stick with love. Hate is too great of a burden to bear.” You can say that MLK is one of the best known advocates to use unconditional love and nonviolence instead of bloodshed to deal with a conflict, and be successful with the manner. During his days he was one of the most loved and hated men for the things he did for trying to reach equality, yet throughout his time of living it's obvious that he fought for human rights and balance. Even though some people say he caused to many problems, in that day of society, MLK’s work helped us to have what we have today. Which would be equality and balance between the races.
He lived his life in truth, and spoke to everyone with truth and wisdom, he highlighted self knowledge in everything he did. Without Gandhi India wouldn’t have it’s independence. Gandhi and Malcolm X were both assassinated, if either had lived a full life they would have many more accomplishments. Their approaches are different but they had both fought for equal rights, one for African Americans, and the other for the world. They knew how to address a crowd and get the results they wanted even without being aware of how they affected the public.
Everyone was getting hurt and these wealthy officials kept their hands clean from miles away. They used the idea of patriotism for the fatherland to get people to enlist for the war. Patriotism, in no way, is a bad thing, however, when one is guilt tripped into believing that their fear of dying in war is actually a lack of devotion to their country, it becomes entirely wrong. One must understand that the majority of the soldiers fighting in World War I had no dispute with the other side and they had only joined, to protect the country they had grown up in and learned to love. These citizens should have been shown the reality because, painful or not, the soldiers who died on the battlefield a decade ago, deserved to know what they were signing up
The irony is that McMurphy first enters the ward as sane as can be to never leaving the place of corrupt ruling because he ends up dying in the ward. According to Jean Griffon she expresses that “This conflict is further complicated by Kersey’s use of Christ imagery to describe McMurphy, leading readers to regularly accept McMurphy’s death as a selfless sacrifice for the greater good. This particular reading can only result from readers missing the irony.”(Griffin 25) However it is also ironic because he is seen as a heroic figure to the patients and usually in
However, a true leader does not shed blood, a true leader has the intention to save lives. Maddie and Julie unveil a soft side to themselves as they fight in the war. Julie starts listing her fears and she states “killing someone” on accident or purpose is a fear of hers and questions herself on whether she actually saved the German pilot or killed him (78). The common misconception of a ruthless leader plagues the minds of many people. Wein shows that a true leader is conscious about the world around them and cares for others regardless of what side they represent.
Everyone's fear of the unknown and the chance of witches being present in Salem caused many deaths due to jumping to conclusions. Although he had the best intentions to bring justice to Salem, he made an improper call. He realizes his error and tries with all he has to make it right, but fails. His despair and weeping show he truly cared, and it shows what a respectable man he is. In real life and in this fiction story, Hale truly did all he could to help Salem,
The main character in the story is Harrison Burgeron, who fights for his freedom of speech, and the need to reveal his true self and identity. This led to his life coming to an end, however he motivated others to open their eyes and see that they also had the same abilities to be themselves, and to be free. Harrison Burgeron was a hero due to the fact that he stood up and fought for what he believed in, even though he knew the consequences were life-threatening. Harrison was considered beautiful and very intellectual, however he was not able to use the talents he had because the law required him to wear “Handicaps”. Harrison as well as others with talents were reprimanded.
These characters show unshakable willpower in different ways, but all end up with devastating results. Antigone’s ambition shows her passion for what she believes in, but still ends up committing suicide. Creon uses his unshakable willpower in a selfish, non heroic way and ends up alone. Haemon, a loyal and confident man, speaks his voice to save Antigone and lead Creon into making the right decision for Thebes, but also ends up committing suicide after seeing Antigone dead. Antigone and Haemon are honorable for their actions, but still did not get the positive turn out that they are searching for.
He might not have physically killed them, but his actions did. He sentenced a woman to death for trying to put her dead brother to rest. It didn’t matter that Eteocles betrayed his city. It was the god’s unwritten law for him, or anyone, to be buried. Antigone says, “Your edict, King, was strong,- But all your strength is weakness itself against- The immortal unrecorded laws of God.- They are not merely now: they were, and shall be,- Operative for ever, beyond man utterly.” (359-363) Creon denied this law because he thought that he was higher than the
He was a smart, educated young man, who loved life and was always smiling. It has been said the reason behind the mass shooting that took place was because Holmes had a mental illness. According to CNN,” Prosecutor George Brauchler argued that mental illness shouldn’t be used as a “Shield” to protect Holmes from the punishment he deserves for taking so many lives in such a cruel manner.
On page 47, he explains that he is not a murderer because he gives his victims fair warning by “snapping the twig,” before he appears. Likewise, I liked Brent’s speech on page 61, which gives the audience an in-depth look at the way Brent sees the world, rather his disdain for society. Brent projects the fault onto his victims for their deaths due to their inability to detach themselves from material items and their overall lack of appreciation for the freedom they have to live and breath each second of each day to the fullest. The writer has done a good job with the psychological foundation of Brent’s character, but by the second act, it felt as though the writer loses sight of the character motivations. What do you think needs work?
He was born into a family that had anti-slavery values and who were also extremely religious. The sentiment that society can only be cleansed of their wrongful thinking was through violence is something that Brown wholeheartedly agreed with. He saw the acts of slavery as violent, atrocious, and dehumanizing and the only way to remove it was through bloodshed. Similar to other terrorists that get caught, there was an apparent lack of remorse for these murders when he is being investigated in trail. In his mind he believed that what he was doing was justified because of his “higher
I also wonder if Milk happened to be straight, if he would’ve still been killed. This is a sad situation because two innocent lives were lost due to someone else’s selfish actions. I’m glad that after Mascone and Milk’s deaths, others stood up for them. Whether the riot was only for Milk or not it still showed how important those two people were to the community. The demonstrators parading around the plaza also showed how powerful Milk living an openly gay life was to
