(Scene 3, Lines 105-107). He felt so much regret and disappointment in himself. Koro realized his mistake just on time. He did not realize his stubbornness until Paikea almost died saving the whales. Once he realized his mistake he let Paikea lead the tribe because he knew she could do it and that she was truly the one who could help her
Odysseus became an even better leader, since he knew that if he told them this they would stop helping him and leave. Although it may seem like he is being selfish, Odysseus needed their help in order to get home, so he didn't say anything. If they were going to die anyways why tell them now and have them leave, then not tell the at all and them not know. Another way this information made him a better leader was when he stated, “I told them nothing, as they would have done nothing. They would have dropped their oars again, in panic, to roll for cover under the decking” (Homer 708).
Gathering the courage to tell his father that he was going to go fishing with his friend was hard for the young man to do because he knows it would change their regular routine of fishing together and possibly hurt his father. While contemplating on how he should tell his father, the young man thought, “It was a very serious thing” (16). In contrast to all the long sentences, the fact that this sentence is short emphasizes the importance of how the young man’s new idea of going with his friend instead of his father changes his relationship with his father. However, the young man and father’s relationship won’t completely change because they will always have a strong foundation, which they created when the young man was still a kid and they spent a lot of time together. The young man and the father spent so much time together while the man was a kid to the point that “his father had always preferred his company to that of men and he had always preferred his father’s company to that of the other guys” (20-22).
After Marial was killed by a lion Salva was devastated because Marial was like the only family that Salva had. However after this event Salva would never leave his uncle’s side and his uncle was like his bodyguard, since he was the only family that Salva knew he’d ever see again. But Uncle Jewiir was killed by Rebels Salva had to move on without him. The text states, “As Salva watched, one of the men aimed his gun at Uncle. Three shots ran out.
He was able to believe in himself and was able to get himself out of situations. He knew he had to leave Calypso, and if I was Odysseus I would have thought like him and used my wits to ensure that I was not being tricked by her, by having her swear on an oath and have her help to build my boat. Hypothetically speaking, if I was not Odysseus and was just a normal man, who had nothing to really live for, I might stay with Calypso because it would be better to live in luxury forever, than live a meaningless life. Odysseus knew he had so much more to live for and if I was Odysseus I would realize that it would be better to die trying to get back home, rather than writing off everything and everyone I would have worked so hard for. Overall I feel that Odysseus made the right decision when choosing to leave Calypso’s island.
Hello, everyone. Today, I’d like to introduce to you the decreasing of blue whales and think together from moral standpoint about some words which are carelessly used now and then. I’m afraid this topic a little deviates from environmental problems, but to prevent us from repeating same mistakes in nature, it is necessary not only survey natural environment but also overturn our thought against nature and all living things in the earth from the root. It has passed long time since the decreasing of the number of blue whale started to become the problem. We can attribute this problem to over whaling for the commercial purpose.
This time around, he was given another life sentence plus fifty-four years. At this point he was ragging and hurt, missing his family, friends and right to freedom. He went back and forth with the thought of killing Poole but after talking to his dad about it, decided he would try to make the best of his life, no matter how hard it would be. He explained that he wanted to leave it in God’s hands since he knew he was an innocent man. God would lead him in the right direction.
For Rais, saving the man who had tried to kill him was the first step in a grander, more messianic mission of trying to save his new country from itself. He had begun to believe that Stroman was a victim, part of a stratum of American society that had, in all the important ways, ground to a halt one generation after the next sinking into a hopeless cycle of poverty, drug and alcohol dependency, and toxic resentment. Stroman is living his last life in cell and awaited for his death. He knew that he is going to die but still not worried for that. He is in a brave manner to face anything that comes before him.
One of the biggest ways this issue strikes you on an emotional level is when tragedy strikes when orcas are kept in captivity. The documentary "Blackfish" highlights just one of these tragedies, when a trainer was killed at Sea World in 2010. So the question comes to all of us why if we know that captivity and this environment is negatively affecting the orcas, do we continue to support this practice by going to the shows and marine parks? The legislation that California has passed brings the ethical issues of keeping these beautiful animals in captivity into the discussion now as well. Even though Sea World has stopped all their breeding programs, and will not be acquiring any new orcas, the question is what will become of the orcas that are currently living at these marine parks.
Okonkwo was not able to accept what his fate would be if he lived. He knew he would have died when prosecuted by the district commissioner, and Okonkwo could not stand the thought of white men integrating into his own culture and so he decided his own fate. He “was one of the greatest men in Umuofia” (Achebe #208). However, this great man knowling took his own life, which is against their culture so that he may decide his fate by his own hands, and not by the hands of somebody else. Okonkwo, the main character, is a tragic hero because his weakness was his pride, he was doomed from the start and he discovered his fate by his own actions.
He also taught them how to fish, plant crops, and how to use the fish heads as fertilizer for the crops. However, the trust the natives and the pilgrims had for him would soon falter, after he wanted to increase his status and increase his power among the two groups, he spread rumors hoping to start conflict, but it was soon realized that he was lying and he was almost put to death. William Bradford, the governor of the Plymouth colony saved his life when he explained to the pilgrims that he was the only reason they were able to survive after the winter. Not long after Squanto’s life was spared, he escorted Governor Bradford on a trip to trade for corn seed. Not too far into the trip, dangerous weather caused them to pull into Manamoyick Bay.
It will be difficult to be a single mother, but I will do my best to raise Abel to be a man my late husband will be proud of. My only comfort is in knowing that Sam died at sea, where he felt like he belonged all his life. It is very difficult for me to raise my son by myself on a remote bay and it is very tempting for me to move to the city but I want die on this very bay and lie down beside my husband.” She has to depend on the eggs of the chooks and the ducks, the fruits of the orchard, the vegetables and the meat of the abalone for her
