Sorrel ranted to the Englishman saying “That’s all we want and that’s what this war is about. We established this this country in the first place with strong state government just for that reason, to avoid a central tyranny.” (p. 65). The South looked at the North as a tyrannical government. The North on the other hand looked at the South as trying to tear the country into two. The Union army fought to keep the country together as one, because if the South would win the war it would have split the country into two for good.
Lincoln urges the people to “strive on to finish the work we are in,” “to bind up the nation's wounds,” he is trying to get the United Sate Citizens to become one again to unite and be one strong country, showing that even after a huge war that the country can remain strong and unified and that this war will allow for a strong brotherhood in the US. Lincoln's Second Inaugural Address is significant because Lincoln offered and objective point of view. Lincoln did not speak of the unloyalty of the South nor did he praise the North. Rather, Lincoln used multiple points to show that the Unification should be the main focus of his speech not that the states should be divided because of
Gowdy displays his purpose in this hearing and reassures Secretary Clinton that his questioning is not directed towards her, he is merely searching for the Truth about what happened that day. This brings me to another point that was mentioned earlier. It is the job of an attorney to find Truth in a case before Justice can be administered; which is what Gowdy attempting to do at this hearing. Again, he is not bias and shows no ill will towards Mrs. Clinton. As the peoples voice, Gowdy is tasked with finding the Truth, not administering guilt.
Francisco Jimenez, the author of “Learning the Game“ and Martha Salinas, the author of “The Scholarship Jacket” both agree with this term because in their stories their characters stand up for their self and have self-respect. In the text “Learning The Game” by Francisco Jimenez, it shows how Francisco Jimenez views dignity as respect. According to the text, it states “He can cheat me out of my money. He can fire me. But he can’t force me to do what isn’t right” This means that Gabriel does not want to be pushed around by Diaz,
Wesley’s compassion, strong moral code, and sense of duty are something that anyone can look up to and aspire to be like. Finally, Wesley is a good father to David. Wesley is very protective of David and tries to shield him from the events that are going on in Bentrock: “If there’s any trouble and I’m not here, you run for Len. Understand? Get Len” (Watson 106).
He deserves loyalty from his crew because he tries to save them, he forgets about his needs, and does not actively put them in danger. Even though Odysseus puts his crew in bad situations at times. Well throughout the journey Odysseus figures out new ways to save and find his way back home. Even when his crew tries to ruin his journey he still keeps an open mind and will do anything for them. And as Mario Puzo once said, “The strength of a family, like the strength of an army, lies in its loyalty to each other.” They have to figure out that they need to use each other to make everything come together even when times get hard and everything becomes scarce we need to work come together as one and realize what is actually happens.
I would agree with both characters in certain ways since each captain showed different aspects that made themselves unique. Grant, for example, was a great soldier that only care about the future of the nation. On the other hand, Lee was the image everybody wanted to follow. His personality was higher than Grant’s, and his desire of keeping the old aristocratic mentality was the nation’s example of loyalty. But, they both had the same purpose which is keeping the American nation as one united country.
In the Gettysburg Address, Lincoln’s purpose when writing the text is to address the U.S. Civil War, and provide opinion on why the Union must fight against the Confederacy: to preserve American union, and preserve what America was founded on. I think the strategies Lincoln used here were very fitting for the occasion, and appealed well to the audience. When Lincoln alludes to the Declaration of Independence in the beginning, he is reminding his audience of the American values of equality and union. Then, he uses repetition to emphasize a point about the fact that Americans must carry the honor of fallen Gettysburg soldiers, heightening the emotion they feel at the Gettysburg Memorial Service. Finally, he heightens the sense of emotion further
. Benjamin Franklin considers both parties feelings and thoughts and he is not prejudiced towards his own customs. Even though a lot of the Colonists believed their description of culture was the best, it does not make it to be so, it might be that the so called ‘savages’ had it correct and Franklin acknowledged that. In addition, Franklin went on to protect and defend the Native Americans script, having frequent instances to have public councils; they have obtained great decency and order in conducting themselves (Baym, Robert & Arnold, 2007). Red jacket as well defends his culture and is not ashamed of it.
Lastly, I believe that lying is a sin. Because of this, I have remained honest throughout my life. This is a good moral to have in general, but especially when having the desire to attend a service academy. The United States Air Force Academy honor code states “We will not lie, steal, or cheat, nor tolerate among us anyone who does.” This would not be a difficult request, because I have developed a habit of being honest. In short, I would not only abide by the morals and values of the United States Air Force Academy, but I would enjoy them.
