The scarlet letter ‘A’ did not stand for “adultery” anymore. It stood for “able.” “The letter was the symbol of her calling. Such helpfulness was found in her, —so much power to do, and power to sympathize, —that many people refused to interpret the scarlet A by its original signification. They said that it meant Able; so strong was Hester Prynne, with a woman's strength.” (Ch. 13, pg 107) She had gained respect for having raised her child as a well behaved young girl, and having provided for the both of them with an honest living as a seamstress, all the while being cut off from the rest of society.
Debi Mazar is an actress who stated, “A hero is somebody who is selfless, who is generous in spirit, who just tried to give back as much as possible and help people. A hero to me is someone who saves people and who really, deeply cares.” Heroes are relevant to everyone, because at some point, everyone has had a hero.

Scott LaBarge’s essay “Heroes: Why Heroes are Important” is well written because he effectively uses pathos, logos, and karios when explaining heroes to his audience.

She didn 't like being told what to do and she would stand up for what was right. Cassie loved her family and the land they lived on.
She survived the death of her first love and even though afterwards she loved again she was a changed person, colder and more focused on personal gains that anything else. What would she have been like if Caesar wouldn’t have been murdered? How would History look like if Octavian’s Admiral Agrippa would have worked for the opposite side? We will never know but what we do know is, that Cleopatra is one of the most well-known and inspiring Women in history. The myths and secrets that surround her make her and the courage that she showed during her lifetime even more

Despite Violette Szabo being known for having a contrarian nature and going against the rules, she is the greatest female agent of world war II in European history because of her selflessness, dedication as an agent, and her rebellion against people 's expectations of her. One of the things that makes Violette Szabo special is that she is the one of the least known great young female operative agents.

Brent realized the implications behind a human being sold as a piece of property and that though she was bought under kind circumstances, it was a kind of benevolence that should never have been needed in the first place. Brent pronounces that “A human being sold in the free city of New York! The
Anne Frank A Light in the Dark Anne Frank once said, “I keep my ideals, because in spite of everything I still believe that people are really good at heart.” Many people know that Anne Frank was an extraordinary diarist, truly an optimist, and a spunky, energetic girl, but did they know that she was wise beyond her years?

As the reader you can really see the strength she gained as a child and it inspires. The fact that she can walk away from all those terrible experiences with love for her parents is incredible. Another thing I loved about this book is how it represents her parents, with all their faults, and their poor mentality, at its worst, without anger, or really any judgment, just with the love. If she had been bitter in her description it would not have been as amazing. This memoir was written with forgiveness making me respect her for not only surviving such a strange childhood to become a successful, but for being able to view her past with
