The gods taught him a lesson, and made it so that it took ten years to travel home to Ithaca. After Odysseus is punished, he understands what he did wrong, and learns to become a better man, therefore redeeming his hero status. He shows that he has learned his lesson in the episode “Odysseus’ Revenge,” when he says, “Now watch me hit a target that no man has hit before, if I can make this shot. Help me, Apollo,” (1410-1411). This clearly shows his new understanding of the importance of the gods.
Anne conveyed moments when she was put in the worst situations and all that was on her mind was the life after the war. Guido was not just fighting for his own life in the concentration camp but his son's life by changing the circumstances positively Both being optimistic, they changed the way readers and people will watch or read real or fictional stories and inspire them to look at the glass half full.

However, even he ultimately recognizes that going against the Party will result in punishment. Therefore, although the exercises hurt Winston, the combination of the lady’s relentless focus along with the idea that the rest of the population also participates in the stretching overpowers Winston’s innate resistance to the Party.
Speeches in America’s history have been very powerful and moving. The speech given by Colonel Joshua Lawrence Chamberlain before the Battle of Gettysburg that changed the minds of 114 mutineers to fight alongside him in this battle. I feel like I could compare Colonel Chamberlain's speech to the wonderful “I Have a Dream Speech” spoken by Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Both of these amazing and powerful words spoken by Martin Luther King Jr. Colonel Chamberlain’s speech were trying to move these mutineers to fight for his regiment that is below half strength and Dr. King is trying to get rid of racism.

And you’re likely to validate the story you’re telling yourself by trying to get your friends to switch away from those whack Vans, too. These stories are how your placebo effect spreads and becomes real to more and more people.”
A whole new person emerges, because someone cared enough to see a positive change occur in that person’s life.

I assume this semester I have learned how to be a improve my writing in my whole life than ever. But I feel the highest things I have improved in was remembering to capitalize your I’s and to pull out of all the worn out words such as; Big, good, and bad and Instead I use colossal, Favorable, and Improper.

Ultimately, I learned tons of excellent material to use in my life for later semesters and years to
