He had thought of a fine revenge upon the officer who had referred to him and his fellows as mule drivers” (192). Henry’s intense desire for revenge is a moral flaw, but Crane leaves hope for Henry as he does not act on his hatred for the officer (192). Henry Fleming finally finds inner peace, and courage wins the war in his heart. Crane writes, “Yet the youth smiled, for he saw that the world was a world for him, though many discovered it to be made of oaths and walking sticks. He had rid himself of the red sickness of , battle” (232).
He should be pardoned because he was the peace-maker for the whole time and he always tried to maintain peace every time. “ Part, fools! Put up your swords, you know not what you do!(1.1.60).

But at the same time he would be violating his sense of duty as a barber. “So it was going to be very difficult to explain that I had him right in my hands and let him go peacefully-alive and shaved” (Barber 3).

Being in Reggie’s shoes, I would have been as courageous as he was to confess his mistake of texting and driving during the accident. Reggie meant every word he said to the families of Jim and Keith because he truly did not remember he was texting and as soon as he remembered he made the choice to accept his mistake and pay the consequences. He promised to “take this terrible situation and help make the roads a safer place” and that is exactly what he tries to do by going around to schools and other events to talk about his situation. He was brave for stepping up and reading his apology letter to the families because he had already told everyone he was not texting, but at that time he did not remember that he was and the victims’ families
In the story it says, “Odysseus decides to tell the men only of Circe’s warnings about the Sirens,” (Narrator 1234). The reason I think Odysseus did this was because he knew the men was going to back out and not want to continue their journey. Another way Odysseus was clever was when he disguised himself as an old man. The purpose for Odysseus disguising himself is because if he didn’t the suitors would have known it was him and would have tried to kill him.
By engaging in intercourse, he violated the trust of his wife while she remained loyal, despite the urges from the suitors. In addition, he fails to show loyalty to his crew. Through his indecisiveness, numerous members on his crew perished. For example, Circe advised Odysseus to avoid fighting Scylla. Instead of listening to the advice, he prepared to fight the monster and, as a result, lost six of his best men.
He finally grasps the chance into talking to the old man, De Lacey and he acknowledges that if he fails in being accepted by them he will be "an outcast in the world for ever".

However, the younger citizens of the cottage enter and the creature is back to square one as they immediately react defensively against it- conveying how the creature will never be accepted with such distorted appearance since it is immediately identified as inhumane and

Transition bob ewell"I destroyed his last shred of credibility at that trial, if he had any to begin with. The man had to have some kind of comeback, his kind always does.
