They had fought in the same wars, travelled with him and were just as homesick, yet he had not given them anything. Another example of his selfishness is when he stays for a year with Circe. He does not take into account that his men, although are being supplied with material things want to go home. He had to be reminded that their final destination was home, which he agreed by saying, “my proud heart was persuaded” (164.460-475). He was so comfortable with Circe that he had to be persuaded.

McCain explains how Christian didn’t care what would happen to him when McCain stated, “Sitting there, with his eyes almost shut from his beatings, making another American flag” (7). Mike Christian knew how much the American flag ment to the POWs and himself so he never a stopped even though he knew there was consequences. Most American’s do have love and devotion for their country just like Mike Christian did. There are many different ways people do that by joining our military, army, navy, police
"Odd, he thought, I've never seen any of these boys, yet I must have passed them in the halls dozens of times." (Conroy 247). When Ben Meecham turned eighteen, it opened his eyes.

“Liberty cannot be preserved without general knowledge among the people.” - John Adams. Knowledge is sometimes very difficult to gain. Those few years of struggle will lead to many years of a society that can stand strong. Montag spent years with internal conflict because he knew how corrupt the society was, but it left him happier than anyone else. In Fahrenheit 451, Ray Bradbury uses symbols and a metaphor to convey that knowledge is the key stone for every society.

Unfortunately, his parents did not have enough money for him to waste twenty shots of rounds every day. Instead of giving him twenty rounds, his dad only gave him one round every day for dinner. Most of the time Crockett was successful, and he had shot something, but very rarely did he not come home with anything and starve (Mancall). Because of Crockett’s young adventures as a kid, he could tell tale tales to everyone in the land which showed him as stronger, smarter, and a better shot than anyone in the land. Later in Davy Crockett’s life he was elected as a congressman and then received the nickname “ the Coonskin Congressman” because in his tales he wore a coonskin hat (Wickersham).
The infamous actions on Bloody Sunday had been set in stone. There was no changing the fact that thousands of workers had marched peacefully to the Winter Palace to deliver their petition for reformed working conditions, which had ultimately left many killed by the Russian military. However, it was the changing perspectives in the 1900s and the present day that illustrate how dynamic the event truly was. By analyzing what Bloody Sunday meant politically to the Russian populace, the major political figure of the country, and foreign nations, it seems evident that the event had once been understood as a failed event that ended in tragedy. Nonetheless, the event was now regarded well and a method towards revolution, and the newly positive perspective ultimately revealed how time has diminished the true tragedy of Bloody Sunday.
After the outbreak of WWI, a year later, Hitler had volunteered for action in the German army. He fought on Germany’s Western front, but never once gained a promotion.

He worked hard enough to make his business successful and on one of the best sellers in Ballarat at the time. Because David chose to go back to Melbourne instead of stay on the diggings he we are lucky enough to experience what news they had and how important news was to them back in those days. Due to having a pay so little and having to leave and try his luck on the diggings, David would have never come to be an editor in Ballart and help construct Australia’s news system. Luckily David was on the miner’s side and he used many quotes like this to represent the miners voice, ‘man for man, the miners were physically mentally and morally equal to any people in the British dominions’. Because Syme had no luck on the diggings but still had to pay for his monthly licence Syme understood what the miners were complaining about and stood up for them, consequently many people who weren’t digging started to take the miners side and that is how David helped construct beliefs and
Marcus Luttrell is more than lucky, he is also highly skilled in the art of combat and is a shining example of human determination.
