For years, people have viewed Odysseus as a lousy hero with many faults and mistakes. His flaws include his arrogance, his treatment to his crew, and his lack of faith to the gods and his family. While initially reading the Odyssey, these reasons are obvious, but once reading the whole epic I was able to see through his flaws which actually led him home. Although Odysseus tripped on many occasions, he stood up and protected his men, escaped many monsters and immortals, and made wise and clever decisions. Odysseus went through a long, rough adventure and survived the entire voyage while managing to keep his family intact.
Through it all, Pat remained unconquerable. When his coach screamed at him, he never quit. When his dad verbally abused him, he never showed weakness. "Finds, and shall find me unafraid" (Henley 12). He has no fear now, and will never show fear.

Louie Zamperini is a hero because of all the people he saved in the Labor Camp Rebellion in Tokyo, Japan. Louise also was an Olympian that set a standard for track and field. Louie accomplished these outstanding things, but he also endured many hardships. Louie struggled through four Prisoner of War camps, just barely surviving.
The biggest mistake of all was him leaving ending his life with hunger. I admire his courage and bravery from the start of his journey till the end, which was his death at the age of 24. He was always moving ahead and never turning back or regretting any moment of his life. He survived so long for not having the material stuff such as money. I don’t think any man is brave enough to do what McCandless did, especially the age he had.
To Louie that would hrt but he said nothing when he was hit over and over again. Louie Zamperini’s two characteristics that he shows throughout the book, Laura Hillenbrand's Unbroken, are courageous and rebellious. How these two traits help you has the reader understand louie has a person is... that he did not so good thing in his life and he will be beaten but will not say anything.

Sonny has been in jail for a great amount of time, so we know that there is no way that he had access to drugs. This letter was written soberly. Although Sonny’s brother did not understand him, Sonny never really stopped trying to get his point across to his brother. Sonny just wanted his brother to
He had no business going to Alaska but that was his tactic for getting away from society. He made mistakes based on what made him happy. I admire him for his courage in taking action to get away from “plastic people”. Christopher McCandless (Alexander Supertramp) was not crazy, he just had big ideas. Chris McCandless was always being judged by his father.
