She was loyal to her country and she didn 't let her religion stop her from helping others. Lydia was also part of the Monthly Meetings of Friends of Philadelphia in the Arch Street Meeting House. Lydia was born in Dublin, Ireland. Ireland was poorer at that time because of the Penal Era
Everyone trusted Harriet because they knew she wasn't doing this for herself, she was doing it for them. She told the slaves stories so that the could have the incentive to keep pushing so they can reach freedom. In the text on pg.135 it says,”Harriet had found it hard to leave the warmth and friendliness, too. But she urged them on.” Harriet Tubman was an amazing woman, her effect on people was extraordinary. She saved so many slaves and gave them freedom, something they never thought they could ever have.
I have never not been Catholic. Even though my parents are both Catholic and wanted to raise us to be Catholic, my sisters and I attended a lutheran preschool and we attended a methodist summer camp. My parents made sure to expose me to different religions while still practicing Catholicism. My faith is very important and personal to me. It’s something I can lean on during both good and bad times.
A nineteenth century man observing women today would be baffled by the freedoms women have. He is probably wondering, “where did we go wrong?” or “how did we let women’s rights get this far?” During the Antebellum period, white, middle class women lived to serve four purposes. Barbara Welter’s The Cult of True Womanhood, identifies these four purposes as piety, purity, submission, and domesticity. Fulfilling these virtues meant living as a true woman in the 1800’s. Restricted in every aspect of their lives, women were only allowed to participate in religious work outside the home, since “church work would not make her less domestic or submissive” (Welter 2).
Saving someone other than yourself in a terrible situation is not something everyone thinks about doing, but in this case Stefania Podgorska not only saved herself but 13 others, and they all lived. Podgorska didn’t plan to save all those people it was more a spur of the moment thing, and not only did she help them by getting them food she saved every last one of them; and they all lived to see more days. In life, good deeds go unnoticed, the courage and unselfishness of her mind at that time should not be something someone just forgets about it’s a wonderful thing she did and everyone should know about her. By examining Podgorska and her moral courage it is clear that she deserves all the attention given, and or all the respect others show. Stefania came from a well known Catholic family that served the community, and so, when it came to do what she did i’m sure it wasn’t in her mind out of the ordinary/or heroism.
Hester used her sin as a lesson to her daughter to learn from your mistakes, but not to let them define who you are. Throughout all of Hester’s difficulties in life, she persisted through them and used them to better herself. Hester was bold and embellished her scarlet “A” that was forced upon her chest. Instead of wearing the letter with shame and deep regret like everyone in the town wished she would, Hester shocked everybody and instead wore it proudly without the remorse attached all the way from the prison to the scaffold in the center of the village. When Hester exited the prison, “she took the baby on her arm, and with a burning blush, yet a haughty smile, and a glance that would not be abashed” (Hawthorne 50-51).
When Farah forgot God, she forgot faith. Her mother’s health declined and housing became harder and harder to find. In California, and others countries all over the world, humans believe that by not praying and not listening to God their lives go in the wrong direction.

She risked so much not knowing if any of it would pay off. As she described living with the Jewish family, “Jews in hiding couldn’t be visible, so I stayed with them, it was the right thing to do.” (Burns 1). She had no strong ties to the Jewish faith and yet, of her own free will risked her life to help, for no other reason than that she knew that what was going on around her was wrong, and she wanted to do whatever she could to stop it. And how even after the war ended and she was free to go back to her normal life, she decided to continue working as a social worker to help those displaced in the war find their surviving family. People can learn from this that we need to stand up and show the same moral courage that Pritchard exhibited, and when faced with these types of injustices to take a risk to fight against them instead of hiding in fear, or simply brushing them to the side saying that there is nothing that they can do about
During this time her family knew the only thing to do was to stay positive. 5 years later Malala still continues to inspire people while traveling the world. Malala and her family knew the only path to survival was a positive attitude. So everyday they looked at the positive aspects of things, instead of focusing on the negative. Malala once said, "If you're climbing a mountain, while facing down, you'll never get to see the reward of what lies
People started to listen when she stated that she was dying and her sons wouldn’t have a mother because of her disease. She is now 62, and probably never thought that she would live to this age. That’s the thing about AIDS, it works in different ways and she never knew when it was going to take her life. This is why she pleaded for the Republican Party to take a stand and fight against the AIDS
In the memoir The Glass Castle by Jeannette Walls, the main character Jeannette goes through a collision of culture by the way her parents disagree about their religious beliefs. The difference between the two parents are shown when Jeannette says “Church was particularly excruciating when Dad came along. Dad had been raised a Baptist, but he didn’t like religion and didn’t believe in God. He believed in science and reason, he said, not superstition and voodoo. But Mom had refused to have children unless Dad agreed to raise them as Catholics and to attend church himself on holy days of obligation”.

Society had now begun to think that Hester had served her punishment.
