Let’s begin by comparing the OSE to moral courage and how they display how much courage humans really have. In fact we will see how it relates back to the very terrible holocaust. Finally, by examining how the OSE is still an astounding example of moral courage, playing a huge role in the holocaust, and how it has had such an impact on my life it is clear that the OSE organization showed tremendous moral courage throughout World War 2. The OSE spent countless amounts of money and sleepless nights wondering if the Nazi’s would ever come after these helpless children. They opened over 14 homes, saving over 1,200 children.
Johnny’s a tragic hero because he strives to be a good person and to help others in need; Johnny enlisted in the Vietnam war to “better” his life. In the play people considered johnny as a good person because he helps his father out with the field. Johnny was only 8 years old when he started working like a man; therefore his father feels very proud of him for helping the family. For example, in scene three shows us how he helped out “pass, I already pick 20 trays, paapa”! (Valdez, page 631) That
Since kindergarten, I have been involved in BSA (Boy Scouts of America), which brings much community service with it. The one instance that stands out most in my time in scouts was my eagle project. I chose to benefact a local ministry out of Binghampton that services inner-city youths by refurbishing a basketball court in the backyard of one of the clubhouses. Because it was a herculean task, my inability to delegate tasks was confronted. Seeing the finished product was rewarding; however, the real satisfaction came from the faces of the children who got to use the new court for the first time.
In his article titled “Wealth”, he spread about his ideas of the successful economic system and the proper administration of wealth. Carnegie believed that it was the duty of the man with surplus to use that extra for the benefit of the community. He shared many of his other beliefs in his articles also. Clearly Andrew Carnegie was a remarkable man. His actions in life have improved the way of life of many around the world, especially through his donations of free public libraries.
It all started September 1st, 1939, when the Second World War occurred and ruined the lives of many Jews, Germans, and other people who were included in the war. There were many heroes though, and one of them is Albert Goering. He did so many courageous things to save the Jews, he blossomed and surprised many people, his brother being one of them. He tricked, killed, and saved quite a bit of citizens. He couldn’t save everyone, but the ones he did save are very grateful that they got to live to see the sun another day.
Salva leads a group of thousands of boys to Kenya with his dedication and determination. The text states “I will get us safely to Kenya, he thought. No matter how hard it is” (81) This demonstrates Salva being a hard-worker because he is helping thousands of boys cross to Kenya. Salva’s labor shows he will do anything to survive, and nothing will stop him. Once Salva started walking, another factor of his survival kicked in, He was a very lucky young boy.
Since Jackie had such a good reputation for being a good guy, his injustice was seen and he was not charged for standing up for his beliefs. Robinson’s determination on and off the field also sparked the creation of his foundation which impacts thousands of young lives every year. Jackie did not waste his opportunity in the major leagues and that example has been passed onto the kids in his foundation who have a 98% graduation rate. By not fighting back with anyone that heckled him, including the man he was supposed to give his bus seat up for, Jackie showed his truly great determination to be
Conquest I am a Lego soldier fighting in defense of my people. The history of my people started in a far away country of Denmark. In the 1960’s we immigrated to America and since that time we have survived fire, the hammer and teenage boys. I have a story to tell of great bravery and courage protecting those in danger from a terrible foe. Our forefather, Ole Kirk Christiansen, would be proud of our efforts to protect our way of life.
I greatly respect the work that our Fire Department volunteers do for our town, it is important to keep our community safe. The commissioners serve the community and the volunteers who help our Fire Department run. The volunteers help to keep our taxes low and as commissioners it is our job to encourage increases of the number of our volunteers and provide the necessary training and tools for our firefighters and volunteers to keep residents
At first, it was just a way to get my community service hours, but the kids later won my heart and there was no turning back. It was a place of unity, a place of hope. It brought people from all over the city of Fitchburg together. Volunteers, such as myself, would come from everywhere to help, the high school kept in touch through their mentors, and the kids would bring different friends along. That unity, that Fitchburg unity, was shown everywhere: at football games, at school events, and even at the grocery store.
I was in National Junior Honor Society in junior high; since then it has been a goal of mine to be in the National Honor Society in high school as well. I love helping others and getting things done when other people are not able to. I am extremely adaptable to any situation I am put in and get along very well with others. I have leadership experience in Boy Scouts and Cub Scouts, I am also in a position at my job that gives me a lot of influence and leadership. At work, if people need something they will generally come to me before my boss because 95% of the time I am am able to help them.
Civil Peace Valuables can consist of material goods and traits. Desite Jonathan Iwegbu losing many of his material assets, he still possesses an optimistic trait in Chinua Achebe’s “Civil Peace,” which allows him to look at challenges and improve them. He shows this many ways throughout the story. “Jonathan Iwegbu counted himself as extraordinary lucky” (389). This helped him improve these challenges and get over these obstacles because most people in his community had lost loved ones during the war, but thanks to his luck and him being courageous, his family had few losses, which gave him the opportunity to continue life as it was before he went to war.
Soldier Boys is a novel about two young boys, Spencer and Dieter, who have gone off to fight in World War II.
