Hell no! They got right back onto the stage and faced their fears and insecurities. “Look at me now, Mom!” Michael Jordan, arguably one of the greatest basketball players of all time, is another great example. Now, one could argue that MJ never truly sucked—he had the more raw talent than the average man 10 times over. However, MJ wasn’t born the greatest basketball player that ever lived; his greatness was forged with competiveness, hard-work, and an unrelenting desire to be the greatest.
Tom Brady is the greatest football player to ever play the game. This might sound like an opinion, but there are so many facts following from here that it’s basically a true statement that Tom Brady is the G.O.A.T. If you don’t know what G.O.A.T means, well it means that he is just the Greatest Of All Time. It takes a lot to say he is because there are so many other incredible players that have played the sport of football, but none of them are at Tom Brady’s level. He might not be the most jacked guy, but he doesn’t need to be, he is a true leader and mentally a great athlete.

In the beginning of the book, after he was transferred into the Salamander army, Ender could not train with everyone else, so he went back to the launchies and “proposed his bargain. Free play, everyday, working hard in the battle room, under Ender’s direction. They would learn things from the armies, from the battles Ender would see,” (85). When he practiced with the launchies, the launchies were transfigure into better soldiers than they were before. This made him a superior leader because it shows how he can command a group and how good he is at teaching.
“When his limp went away he continued to use it. He didn’t need to. He likes it, as a king of swagger stick, such as military officers sometimes use. When he was angry he would wield it like the flat of a sword, whacking out his kids or his wife or his hallucinations. He kept the cane for years, and it served him well” (Pg.
He worked hard to give the blacks what they needed (education) and at the same time kept peace within the two races. He did nothing to evoke the anger of the white population.

Fredrick didn’t know how to read and write first but, he did not give up. In “Learning to Read and Write,” Frederick Douglass strongly states that knowledge is a great form of power. From being a former slave for life, Douglass expresses the importance of knowledge by describing, how he was able to learn to read and write. He put a lot of effort and time on learning to write, but at the same time he shows us that he still have the thoughts that one day he would become a free man. I agree with this author because of, first he didn’t know how to read and write but he had put his effort.
My favorite part of the book was that Hole in my life is a true story which makes the farfetched events plenty more exciting. I enjoyed the ending because he finally got what he wanted, to write. The ending gave a sense of fulfilment and it was very satisfying. My favorite part would be when he was in the drug industry, the entire time he was on edge, the story became very suspenseful and edgy. I would recommend this book to everyone, The book is exciting and a real page turner to say the least.
This question is simple but if the book gave a little insight about his mother. In the book to be honest I was asking myself where did huck get his ideas and how is he adventurous and he is not like his drunk dad, Pap. After we would talk about the whole book I would end the conservation with the intense topic of the “N-word”. Firstly, I would tell him that black people are not slaves and that there is no slavery in general. This would come to shock to him because he lived in a period where having and owning a slave was the social norm.
Honesty is essential in the quest for freedom. In Between the World and Me, Coates tells his son the truth, without fear, without repression, and without appeasement. Coates doesn’t write as a spokesperson for the black community, but he writes knowing that he will be a spokesperson not matter where he is or what he does. This a reality black people must deal with every day. Coates uses the language he does not because of the fact that it will be read as more than his words, but because they are his words regardless.
"The differance between successful people and others is not a lack of strength, not a lack of knowledge, but rather in a lack of will"- Vince Lambardi. The team of 2015 was diffrent than previous spartan teams. Even though we had just came off a state championship, we still had to give a 100 percent effer everytime we steped on the
Many people believe that being a wildlife resources officer is the easiest job in the world. But, they have no clue what actually happens throughout the day.

Today, I am acknowledged as Officer Fullington.
