As the story continues, the men would come far and hard forward to land. However, the world would trick the men into thinking that help has come. That the ounces of help for them would be swept away by the ocean waves. The men live in a world that did not consider them, the lives of the men as important. Though a couple of the men on the boat would try to reassure themselves that help would come.
I know others better.” “Que va,” the boy says, “There are many good fishermen and some great ones, but there is only you.” “Thank you. You make me happy. I hope no fish will come along so great that he will prove us wrong.” (23) With that said, Santiago’s determination is the only reason that he is able to catch any fish. Also, he decides to not only ignore opportunities to boast his fishing skill, proving that he is above the common man trying to alleviate insecurities through bragging, but rather constantly displays a sense of humbleness and integrity. In conclusion, the sea is symbolic of the entire world in “Old Man and The Sea”, and Santiago barely even touched the water and learned so much, while teaching others even more.
The only reason he did that was because he thought it was the right thing to do. His dad got injured while in the mines, therefore Sonny made the decision to take over while his dad healed. He later realized that he loved trying to build a rocket and went back to doing what he loved most. In The Pact the boys were surrounded by a bunch of people who didn’t do the right thing and that did drugs. Because of those people the boys had a hard time making sure that they stayed out of trouble.
He was scared but knew he had to keep going to make it out.He made it through the tunnel and blood filled his goggles. He swam to the surface gasping for air. He climbed onto the rock and sat their cleaning the blood from his face so his mother wouldnt worry about him. This shows alot of maturity and independence because he normaly would let his mother tend to him and let her worry about him. But he didnt want his mother to worry about him he has become more independent through the storry by going off to the beach everyday to practice holding his breath and learning where the tunnel entrance
To undo this guilt he does different actions in the positive way that show how his actions are now used for positive good deeds. Amir grows to become someone willing to die for Sohrab and believes Sohrab to be a part of his family which is ironic because Hassan was never able to become a part of their family due to social pressures. After Amir recognizes that Hassan knew all along Amir has a bigger feeling of guilt which is only washed away through constant deeds. One service is when Amir places the crumpled money for a positive outcome rather than to chase someone out, “ Earlier that morning, when I was certain no one was looking, I did something I had done twenty-six years earlier: I planted a fistful of crumpled money under a mattress ( 242) ”. As Amir grows as a character after ridding himself of different guilts he develops and grows by changing different actions that he has committed in the past as a sin.
This makes his story more heartbreaking in my opinion. Because he was carrying numerous forms of ID on him, he unmistakably wasn’t planning on deserting society forever; he wanted to return hopefully someday. Perhaps he would have written a book about his whereabouts or what he grasped about the significance of life while absorbed in the wild. Maybe he would have justified why he never contacted his parents. Although Chris inspired many people from his Alaskan expedition, he could have inspired so many more if he had survived.
When an unfortunate accident throws Rainsford overboard, he stays calm (Connell 28). In this sudden event, he needs to stay calm, and he does that very well. From this point, he immediately looks around and surveys to find a place to go that isn’t stranded in the ocean. “General, I wish to leave this island at once” (Connell 36). Hearing all about the island and General Zaroff makes Rainsford decide he needs to leave.
Since the Japanese were willing to inflict the most harm possible, the war may have lasted several more years. By 1945, those involved in the war were shattered. Therefore, the use of the atomic bombs was justified because it put an end to an already horrific
Many countries have decided to ban the substances all together, but because there are weaker armies those countries have chosen to keep all substances to use for fighting in battles. With this happening, the countries that banned all chemical warfare have to find a way to protect themselves from breathing in these compounds and to stay in battle to fight off these other countries. In the article written by Harold Maass, he asked the question of why chemical warfare is different from other weapons, “In a literal sense, they 're not, since the goal of warfare is to kill lots of people in an efficient way. Bombs, missiles, and other munitions achieve very similar results, especially when dropped on civilian areas. But chemical weapons evoke a strong emotional response, perhaps
The naval officer is Churchill, he’s the “god” who acted upon the war and started to end WWII, making him look like a savior to Britain and others. It is also mentioned that there was another officer who could represent the US because from afar they were aware and supportive of their allies until they got involved still showing support; it is inferred that most of the boys(people involved in the war) and the other officer(Churchill) go on the same boat to go to where their ship(peace, dreams, and stillness) is at. WWII and the boys show how mankind needs saving from disasters and having that need of a “savior” to get them
The second example is Odysseus is loyal to Penelope. This a good trait for a leader because no one would want a man who is not loyal to their wife to be their leader. Another way this is helpful,it give the men someone to trust and not leave them in the sea while Odysseus finds a way back home without his crew. The last reason is
How would you like it if some pirates decided it would be fun to invade on you and your family?” Rainsford groaned as he finally knew what he was going to do. He was going to help Zaroff, not because he felt bad for him but because he too liked his privacy. He also just wanted Zaroff to leave and disappear again. In was surprisingly relaxing after Rainsford survived and arrived home because he told everyone about the tricky man on the island. He contacted every local media outlet as well as national TV and radio stations.
We gave them multiple chances, and even then it still wasn 't enough time for us to have really considered what would happen to Hiroshima. By taking into consideration of other people, we will be able to avoid more catastrophic events like Hiroshima from happening again in the future. The decision to bomb Hiroshima is one of the most inhuman things America has done. “A hundred thousand people were killed by this bomb.” These were innocent lives lost to Americas inpatient decision to end the war. There have been arguments about how Japan couldn 't even deal that much damage to us at that point in the war that make bombing them seem like a wanted thing.
