Where as his son having no control, feared the men with machetes and the thought of dying. Even though letting his adopted son die is a bad thing it's better than killing him yourself and in this situation he wasn't doing the right thing. Okonkwo is a leader in fear of himself for being
“Okonkwo knew she was not speaking the truth… And when she returned he beat her heavily. In his anger he had forgotten that it was the Week of Peace… But Okonkwo was not the man to stop beating somebody half-way through, not even for fear of a goddess.” (Achebe 29-30).
He has been “jumped” by several Socs on his way to and from his home, without a purpose. In addition, Johnny has been beaten and left half-conscious, bruised, and cut up. Claim: In the book The Outsiders, Johnny Cade is entirely innocent of murder, as the Soc’s are trouble makers, and he acted out in defense of himself and a friend. Topic Sentence using PQA: The Socs are always causing trouble.
If he could kill a boy that he treated like his son so easily he would not have a problem killing his actual son. “But the boy was afraid of him and slipped out of the hut as soon as he noticed him dozing.” (p.63) This quote is important because he realized that he does not like being around his father. He lost the little respect he had left for him after he killed Ikemefuna.
Both Jem and Scout had a startling knowledge that changed the way they treated other individuals. Both kids were practically killed by Mr. Ewell the night after the trail. Jem understood that Mr. Ewell was a fainthearted man, in light of the fact that keeping in mind the end goal to hurt their dad, Mr. Ewell needed to hit him in his feeble spot, his kids. Both kids understood that negative things that can leave positive things. Despite the fact that Atticus Finch spared Tom Robinson from being erroneously blamed for a wrongdoing, he likewise uncovered that Mr. Ewell beat his kids and was a dishonorable father.
Because of the isolation from enough foods, the man only thinks about him and his child and even his conscious tells him he should help others, he walks away from them. Furthermore, the papa also threatens, or even kills others who try to harm his child. When stranger on the road tried to hurt the man’s child, the man shoots the stranger. McCarthy depicts, “the man had already dropped to the ground and he swung with him and leveled the pistol and fired from a two-handed position balanced on both knees at a distance of six feet. The man fell back instantly and lay with blood bubbling from the hole in his forehead” (McCarthy, 66).
I just hated Bill, I did not like how he reacted in various situations throughout the film. He created bigger obstacles for himself with the choices he makes, like beating up a gang member, killing the nazi supporter in his shop, and then shooting a officer. If he had made right decisions from the very beginning he would have never gotten killed. Overall I thought Bill was just a creepy and an insane guy. He had extreme metal issues, however, at the same time I also felt sorrow for him because his mental health issues is what lead him to destroy his relationship with his family, especially from his daughter, who he greatly loved.
After Bob Ewell, the prosecutor of Tom Robinson, attacks the children and dies in the attempt, Atticus refuses to cover it up because he, “‘Don’t want him growing up with a whisper about him, I don’t want anybody saying, [...] Sooner we get this over with the better’” (Lee 366). Atticus would not let the local sheriff say that Jem did not kill Bob Ewell because he thought that Jem did at the time, and wants his kids to know that they should be treated like the rest of the community. Before that, when Atticus was defending Tom Robinson, he was telling the jury that the opposition had lied because they were, “‘confident that you gentlemen would go along with them on the assumption—the evil assumption—that all Negroes lie, that all Negroes are basically immoral beings, that all Negro men are not to be trusted around our women’”
Like when he meant the Grangerfords and they told him about the family found they had, the one daughter like one of the Shepherdson boys. The two families killed the men in both families for the fude. One of the Shepherdson boys wrote something on a piece of paper for Miss Sophia. “ Then she said she’d forgot her Testament, and left it in the seat at church, between two other books and would I slip out quiet and go there and fetch it to her, and not say nothing to nobody” (page 111). I could write so much more about the conflict and hardship Huck was involved
Huck quickly realizes he has no place in society, when Tom and him decide to start a gang. However, in order to become a member, one must consent to the murdering of their families if one breaks the rules. When one of the boys call out, “Here’s Huck Finn, he hain’t got no family, what you going to do ‘bout him?” Huck starts to realize that he has never had caring and loving parents that he would have to feel obligated not to kill (Twain 6). His father, who is known as the town’s drunk, has physically and mentally abused Huck all his life, which has given him no sense of direction.
He killed bob because he thought that Ponyboy was going to get killed, and he jumped into that church, risking his life to save many children 's lives. I think he didn 't want to see other lives go to waste after he took one himself. Johnny had a good reason to be scared. Johnny is a interesting character in the story, The Outsiders. Without his unique personality and background, the greasers just wouldn 't be the same.
Johnny Cade is 16 years old, a greaser, and lives in the East Side of the town which is where the poor class lives. He was not very good in school, but was a quiet boy trying his best to not get in a “mess”. He would be very nervous when talking to people/strangers he didn’t know about, especially the Socs. He died being a hero to all young and old saving lives although his life was taken away. Johnny Cade was born in March 1,1949 and died in the year of 1965.
Juan Ponce de León (Spanish pronunciation: [ˈxwan ˈponθe ðe leˈon]; 1474 – July 1521) was a Spanish explorer and conquistador. He became the first Governor of Puerto Rico by appointment of the Spanish crown. He led the first known European expedition to La Florida, which he named during his first voyage to the area in 1513. Though in popular culture, he was supposedly searching for the Fountain of Youth, there is no contemporary evidence to support the story, which is likely a myth. Ponce de León returned to southwest Florida in 1521 to lead the first large-scale attempt to establish a Spanish colony in what is now the continental United States. However, the native Calusa people fiercely resisted the incursion, and de León was seriously
