He is pulling more and more away from society’s beliefs and gaining a little bit of freedom each time. Jim is also gaining a bit of freedom when Huck treats him like a person, he can now act like himself, not a slave and can say and do things freely around Huck. Although this is the first time that Jim experiences a sliver of freedom in the novel, Huck has felt this way before. Huck had experienced all kinds of abuse from his father, Pap and when he escapes from his cold hearted grasp he feels free, like his own person for once. He states, “...
Edwards elaborates on his claim and states if God were to spare the audience now, they would “immediately sink and plunge into a bottomless gulf” of Hell. This dramatic imagery shows the Puritans that God will no longer come to their rescue because the Puritans have chosen to serve Satan. Edwards tries to reach his audience by saying Hell is a “great furnace of wrath” where sinners belong. This description of Hell shows Edwards belief that sinners will pay for not serving God by facing God’s wrath in Hell. Each claim made by Jonathan Edwards motivates the audience to stop serving Satan in order to escape the “very misery to all eternity” that is Hell.
In his second inaugural address Abraham Lincoln promised, “to care for him who shall have born the battle and for his widow and his orphan”. I think this is a very important promise to keep. If a man or a woman is willing to die so that we can live the best possible life, I feel that we owe it to them to take care of their loved ones. A life given for us should be honored. First off, lets get it out of the way and talk money.
He was quick to anger and couldn’t be reasoned with.

They would buy me flashcards, a white board where I taught myself how to spell, add, and subtract, they even try to teach me the language they did not know. Seeing them struggle, yet stay persistent in helping me has been a motivation to me. They motivate me to keep trying and to ignore the people that say I can’t do it. I want my parents to know that I’m am extremely thankful for what they have done and what they continue to do. My dad, who is a single-father, has played a vital role in who I am.
Additionally, young people tend to be offered financial support from parents and are able to get student loans in order to continue and finish their studies. I chose to study abroad and I, therefore, moved to the UK despite the higher tuition fees because an international degree is more desirable for employment later on. However, without a tuition loan and financial support from my parents, I would not be able to do that. Following a degree in the UK and later on a Master’s would result in me having a high debt later on. Additionally, since education does not equal employment I might need to return home and live with my parents until I find employment that would provide me with a salary to be able to live independently.
Since John wanted to devote his life to God, his decision to tear up his confession allowed him to keep his pride and remain honorable by the end of the play.

John Proctor, a character from The Crucible is a Rebel/Misfit Archetype. A Rebel/Misfit is defined as a character that radically rejects the values of a society and the restrictions placed on him or her. I chose to do my research project on John because Proctor is my favorite character from The Crucible and throughout the whole book he was feeling guilty for his actions but wanted to do the right thing. Proctor can also fit into the Hero Archetype for sacrificing his life to save his wife. Back in the 1690s, not going to church every Sunday was a sin and could be punishable by death.

Guilty Without a Doubt In The Scarlet Ibis, Brother and Doodles story is a perfect example as to why pride can be a destructive force. Doodle was pushed to the extreme by his brother. His brothers selfish pride took over his life and he just lost control, he couldn't handle it and his pride, and as a result an innocent life was lost, therefore Brother is guilty of Doodles death.
