When Odysseus and his crew passed by the mainland where the Cyclops lived, they were only going to stay for two days, but then out of curiosity, Odysseus wanted to see what kind of beast the Cyclops was which made them almost die. Odysseus didn 't even ask his crew whether they should do it or not because Odysseus made it seem like their opinion wasn’t important and didn 't matter. In the story, it says “Why not take these cheeses...Yet I refused, I wished to see the cave man, what he had to offer” (pg 818 L198-199). Odysseus deserved to return home from his journey after 20 years because it was mostly his fault. If Odysseus had told his crew about everything like why not to eat the cattle or to not open the bag of the unfavorable winds, his journey wouldn 't have taken 20 years.
Permanent Change With Cole Getting attacked by a giant bear alone in the forest and then having to lay on the ground without being able to use of an arm or legs would change the way the world is seen, would it not?

If forgiving anyone and everyone who had hurt you and you moved on, don’t you think that some little part of you might change? In the book Touching Spirit Bear by Ben Mikaelsen, Cole was able to make permanent change by having a near death experience, his morning routine, and learning to forgive those who had hurt him. With doing these actions he learned to move on from his past and become a better person.

“Why does he pay you like that?” Asked Scout, “ because that’s the only way he can pay me. He has no money.”(23) responds Atticus when questioned why he is allowing Walter Cunningham to pay him in this manner. The Cunningham’s are above the Ewells in the caste system while still remaining under the other white members of Maycomb. Atticus has empathy towards Walter, because he knows that Walter will be able to pay him back in return, although they are poor, they do not take things from others they know that they can’t pay back in return. They did not even take “no church baskets and no script stamps.

He had no common sense, and he had no business going into Alaska with his Romantic silliness. He made a lot of mistakes based on arrogance. I don’t admire him at all for his courage nor his noble ideas. Really, I think he was just plain crazy,” shows that Shaun believes Chris had no common sense in his doing for leaving society for the wild. I agree with Callarman’s position of thinking “ he had no common sense” and that he was “bright and Ignorant” because Chris thinks he did not have much to offer in his society, ditched all his possessions to take a trip into the Alaskan Wilderness and did not have much common sense or survival skills.

Because Okonkwo fits four out of the five criteria of a tragic hero, he is a tragic hero. Because he was a successful leader and farmer and he earned this success without any help, Okonkwo is better than ourselves. According to the book, Okonkwo “neither inherited a barn nor a title, nor even a young wife.” (18) Despite the fact that he came from a failure of a father, Okonkwo managed to become wealthy and successful. Because of his anger, and his fear of being thought weak, Okonkwo was vulnerable. His anger made him do things without thinking, which could end up harming him.

He enjoys being in nature.
Paine was raised not very in a wealthy or affluent family at all while Jefferson was. I personally believe that Paine had more of an insight or a yeaninhg for freedom and independece because of his upbringing which definately served as an advantage. Being an emigrant he definately understood how oppressed the working man could feel, because Paine was not born in the colonies he had a different different upbringing which I feel helped show us a different persective and how flawed some systems are. Voices of freedom was written for commoners for the working man, forsomeone who didnt have a pleuorta of education however they understood the message he was trying to convey. Jefforson spoke so eloquent I refuse tobelieve his document would have

All men are created equal, but the colored were not given the equal rights to vote nor were they treated equally at that time. An unjust law is no law at all. Thus, why should the colored obey laws that were unjust? They had not only a legal and a moral responsibility to obey just laws, but a moral responsibility to disobey unjust laws. Undocumented immigrants today are carrying the torch of King.
