An ordinary person that was a hero was Rosa Parks who helped change the word. Rosa Parks is a hero because she stood up for herself and others. Rosa parks is a hero because she helped stop segregation. Rosa parks refused to give her seat on the bus for a white person (Rosa Parks: My story).This evidence tells me that she was tired of giving up her seat to white people because there wasn’t room in the bus. She knew that by doing that she was doing the wrong thing but what she didn’t know was that her actions changed history.
But in Jim Carrey's life he persevered in order to save his life and his family. The story Susan B. Anthony Dares to Vote shows perseverance because Susan had never given up on her fight for women's rights to vote. For example, one day Susan dressed up as a man in order to vote because she knew that women couldn't vote. Even though she was a women, she dressed up as a man to show that she will never give up in what she believes in. This shows perseverance because she tried everything in order to get women to vote even though most of her ideas did not work.
People later realize that Hester has changed and become a wonderful woman who loves to help. The citizens do not even recognize the letter as its old significance, which is adulterer. Even the people who do not know Hester think that the letter on her breast symbolizes importance. In the article, Symbols: The Scarlet Letter, “...the Native Americans who come to watch the Election day pageant thank it marks her as a person of importance and status” (Sparknotes). The Native Americans who did not know Hester thought she was of great status because of her hard working abilities and the letter on her chest.

Courageous Character Courage means when you are able to do something or stand up for someone or something, despite when people say that you shouldn't do it, or when you know there will be consequences for doing the right thing. Throughout the novel, Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry, Mildred D. Taylor uses the young Cassie Logan as an example of a young girl with courage, strength, and stands up for her beliefs and her family no matter what gets in her way. Cassie proved she was courageous and brave because she stood up for her brother, Little Man, when he didn't want a dirty book and had to be “switched” so Cassie got “switched” with him. Also she showed she was willing to face the consequences for helping her family and friends when she stood up to Mr. Burnett at the store after he wouldnt take TJ’s order. Also, she showed courage when she brought Lillian Jean into the forest and fought her.
Saving someone other than yourself in a terrible situation is not something everyone thinks about doing, but in this case Stefania Podgorska not only saved herself but 13 others, and they all lived. Podgorska didn’t plan to save all those people it was more a spur of the moment thing, and not only did she help them by getting them food she saved every last one of them; and they all lived to see more days. In life, good deeds go unnoticed, the courage and unselfishness of her mind at that time should not be something someone just forgets about it’s a wonderful thing she did and everyone should know about her. By examining Podgorska and her moral courage it is clear that she deserves all the attention given, and or all the respect others show. Stefania came from a well known Catholic family that served the community, and so, when it came to do what she did i’m sure it wasn’t in her mind out of the ordinary/or heroism.
The only thing she did to become a hero was do what was good for other and herself. She just did what was right for her people. Rosa Parks from “Rosa” is a hero because she was brave, helped others, and did it all in a peaceful way. Rosa Parks is a hero because she was brave. One reason she was brave was she didn’t care when the bus driver told her to give the white person her seat, she was just sitting there.
Sarah influenced the children’s hearts in the park to stop bullying and for them to all be friends. On the other hand, Ana influenced herself and part of her family to work hard and have the courage and be determined. In “Making Sarah Cry” it states, “Determination on her face, Sticking up for one of her own tormentors And willing to take his place.” She is trying to show everyone in the playground that you can stand up to your bully and that having courage will make you stronger and better than before. In I “Escaped a Violent Gang” it shows, “I began to see that there were other things besides gang life - that I could have a future, that I could graduate.” She is trying to tell those few people that you can do if you have the courage and that you can make it to where you want to be in
“It is not right to be deprived of freedom when we are living in the Home of the Brave and Land of the Free.” – Rosa Parks. Rosa Parks was a hero who fought through opposition to further the civil rights of African-Americans. A lot of people have not heard of Rosa Parks, and those who have think that all she did was sit down on a bus seat, but she did so much more. When Rosa Parks, an African-American woman, refused to move from her seat for a white man, it set off a chain of events that led to the Montgomery Bus Boycott and the rise of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. The tremendous courage and bravery of ‘The Mother of the Civil Rights Movement’ did not waver in the face of danger and she is now an international symbol of the resistance to
The townspeople “[began] to look upon the scarlet letter as a token, not of that one sin, for which she had borne so long and dreary a penance, but of her many good deeds since.” This quote exemplifies how sin is not a death sentence for Hester. Through hard work and charity it allowed the rigid Puritan society to see her as something different, and as someone who would not let society define who she was. Hester, thus, was not only able to change herself, but also the image in which society viewed her by working hard to benefit the public. Likewise, the scarlet letter which was supposed to represent sin was instead “fantastically embroidered with gold thread, upon her bosom.” Even though the Puritans may have designated the letter as a representation of sin, Hester’s renewed sense of pride does not want society to define the A for her. Rather Hester wants to define it herself and by doing so she develops responsibility and power over her own actions.
To begin with, I think Mrs. Jones was super kind and nice to Roger because, any other lady would have called the cops on him. Roger changed a lot on page 32 paragraph five Roger asked Mrs. Jones does she need someone to run to the store for her obviously he was trying to be nice for she would trust him. Plus Roger had a chance to escape but instead he wanted Mrs. Jones to trust him. Mrs. Jones gave him food and money for his shoes she treated him like her child. She really saved him by teaching him a lesson because, if he could have been locked up or killed if it was someone else.
ORTL cheered when they shared this, saying: “Great news! We hope Macy 's takes this money and donates to organizations that truly help women.” If all we knew about Planned Parenthood was from Oregon Right to Life, no one would support this abortion organization because of how fiercely they are working against it. They do not believe it is a true women’s health center. Planned Parenthood posted “As we approach our 100th anniversary, stand with us and change your profile pic!” and at the same time Oregon Right to Life posted “Today we acknowledge Planned Parenthood’s 100 years of abuse.” The clear difference between their words accurately depicts the conflict of their ideas and feelings about their cause. On one post they have a picture of a rally against Planned Parenthood with the words “Let’s do this!” above it.
1) Scout admires Miss Maudie because she feels the respect Miss Maudie gives her, Jem and Dill. She also loves Miss Maudie because she is a strong independent woman who doesn’t need a man in her live to be happy. 2) Atticus accepted the job to defend Tom Robinson because he is trying to show Jem, Scout and the town that everyone is equal. He is hoping to change the town’s way of thinking that everything should be based off of skin color. 3) Scout fights with Francis and Cecil Jacobs because they called Atticus a ‘nigger-lover”.
The expulsion of Callie from the cheerleading squad due of her disability was an unjust choice due to jealousy, efficiency, and the purpose of cheerleading. Cheerleading should not be about the person 's ability to jump and do tumbles, but their ability to rile up the crowd. Because Callie never failed to ignite the school spirit, she should not have been kicked from the squad. Provided she can perform well, “Callie should not be excluded from cheerleading” (185). Although her cerebral palsy limits the type of movements she can enact, the way she moves her wheelchair up and down increases the school spirit, theoretically making her the best performer.
When Pai 's grandfather would not let her attend the school, she disciplined herself and took matters into her own hands with the help of her uncle. As a result of this she proved to her grandfather that she is much stronger, wiser, and worthier than the
