2.1 Introduction Robert Frost had extensively been established in America and had established the Pulitzer Prize four times, and was the only poet ever queried to read his poem at a presidential induction. Born in San Francisco, Robert Lee Frost was named after the defeated Confederate general Robert E. Lee. After the death of his father, the rebellious son of a prudent, hard-working, fruitful Massachusetts farmer, he moved with his mother and sister to eastern Massachusetts near his paternal grandparents.

He has been widely established by audience while his poetry does not receive careful critical judgment.
Maybe this is because he died after being in the wilderness for 112 days. I think Chris McCandless found genuine happiness throughout his journey. He made it to Alaska, his ultimate goal. His last known words were “I have had a happy life and thank the Lord. Goodbye and may God bless all!”

Frank McCourt married three times. However, all these marriages were unpleasant. Frank McCourt has one daughter from the first marriage, and she is also interesting in writing like her father. On the other hand, Helen Keller chose to live alone, thus she never got married. Though the marriage was her dream, she always thought that no one would want to be burdened with her because of her disabilities.
He died May 2, 373, peacefully and surrounded by his supporters. He spent some of his last years fixing some of the damage done during the years of his exile. He kept preaching, writing, and even made his view of the Incarnation more known. The life of Athanasius, one of the greatest Church Fathers, was well-lived for Christ; he opposed Arianism, he was exiled for his beliefs, and wrote some of the greatest works of theology in Church history. Saint Athanasius spent many years of his life opposing Arianism.
Within the context of recent history, Wilfred Owen is often considered the greatest writer of modern British war poetry. Composing the vast majority of his poems in a one-year time span, Owen found inspiration from his personal experiences fighting in World War I and fellow poets joining in the fight around him. Born in 1893, Owen grew up the oldest of four children, enjoying a particularly close relationship with his mother while his father remained distant. Owen graduated from Shrewsbury Technical School at age eighteen. Afterwards, Owen took numerous odd jobs throughout Europe, seemingly at a loss for his purpose in life.
The disabled prisoner is considered the least taken cared for because no “special” rights were issued to them. Think about it a prisoner with no legs or no arms and they need assistance but the correction officer opens the cell doors he does not care at all. So around forty years ago president jimmy carter signed a document that stated “The Rehabilitation Act was created to apply to federal executive agencies “so in sort term that meant that disabled prisoners will receive care for all of those years with the disability. And now some but not “all” prisons give the prisoners assistance or give them prosthetics every day inmates who have this tragic disability are routinely denied their aid on a daily basis. Which makes that a nightmarish survival

Tony has had many books written about him and also has one movie that has recently came out. The movie’s name is Woodlawn. Tony is a very inspirational person. From coming from a humble family and at a school that hated African American people to being a football star and being inducted into the senior bowl hall of fame with many other greats such as Curtis Martin and Michael Strahan. Tony probably never expected to be a football star from coming out of where he lived.
Not once, in all of his years serving the United States Army, did Desmond Doss take the life of another. From the time he was born, he was brought up as a kind and caring Seventh-day Adventist who firmly believed in Jesus Christ. Known as a conscientious objector, Doss not only refused to kill, but also refused to touch a single weapon when he was drafted into the army. Many of his fellow soldiers and officers believed him to be a coward because of this, but each and every one of them were quickly enlightened after witnessing his brave and

While the platoon was on a high, we also started to argue and hold distain for one another.
