A lot of people showed courage in To Kill a Mocking Bird. I feel like everyone showed courage in their own ways. But, it all comes down to one thing.

He went against the most powerful force in his country, the government. He knew that he would not win, as he says, “I hope that I will be the last victim…[and to] inspire others to do the same”. He says that he didn’t not expect to win, but only to inspire others. In other words, he was courageous enough to have sacrificed himself in order to get his voice heard. This related to Atticus saying that courage is “when you know you’re licked”, and you still persist.
These characters are all taking risks. Odysseus is taking chances and risks by trying to return home and anyone who is an enemy will try to make it impossible or make it difficult for him. Hermia is taking a risk by disobeying her father and could ultimately lead her to death, but Hermia would do anything to be with Lysander. A difference between all characters are their personality. Odysseus is an old aged, brave warrior that is wise and courageous.
On the other hand, you have David Coke. An overall exceptional guy who even though was set on the fact he would die in war "‘It’s absolutely hopeless," (First Encounter with a bandit, 43), was still brave enough to fight. Roald Dahl encounters Miss Trefusis and David Coke at different times and has different ideas on who they are as people.

In the beginning of The Giver, Jonas was missing the quality to that would allow him to fight against the government. However, after becoming the receiver of memory he began to obtain that quality. “He would need those to help him find the elsewhere they were sure existed. They knew it would be a very difficult journey.” We can tell that because he was willing, nothing would be able to stop him from rebelling, even though he could die. Harrison is also very willing.
“Stand up for what is right, even if you are standing alone” is a quote by Suzy Kassen. This is a major theme in the book To Kill a Mockingbird. Many people in life find it extremely hard to stand up for what is right because they may be going against peers and family.

In order to overcome the challenges of life, each person must face the fears that are indeed a part of them. The book illustrates that there are several ways to face one’s “beast”, and although each path is varied, they all will eventually come to the same realization that no fear can be conquered until it is faced.

As stated by Katniss Everdeen herself, “At some point, you have to stop running and turn around and face whoever wants you dead. The hard thing is finding the courage to do it.” Both Beowulf and Katniss had to put aside their pride, remain selfless and have the courage and bravery to save their people on multiple occasions. These two heroes endured many hardships, challenges and rough patches, but they came out victorious in the end. As well as the epic of Beowulf, The Hunger Games is an excellent example of the twelve- Step Vogler model of the Monomyth. Many stages of the hero’s twelve-step journey is uncovered explicitly in the movie The Hunger Games.

His children learned something from a great man like what color you are doesn’t define who you truly are inside. Lee, Harper. To Kill a Mockingbird.

The theme that High Noon shows is responsibility to society.
