Doesn’t sound like a problem, riiiiiiiight? Wrong. It’s America, people, EVERYTHING is our business. Everything. So, we backed up the people who were claiming to be democratic (not to mention their military was hopeless, because American soldiers were actually thinking these people were joking when they said they had never seen a gunboat).
Rieux commends Grand as a hero due to his selfless acts throughout the novel.

A Tale of Two Cities is a story about a flawed man that had no interest in himself, others, and the world, changing into a hero through his journey on the road to the guillotine. Carton starts out in the novel as an alcoholic attorney that lacks self-confidence. He says, “I am a disappointed drudge, sir. I care for no man on earth, and no man on earth cares for me.” Although he is very clever and does great work for his partner Stryver, he has no interest in himself, and gives all the glory that he could have received to Stryver. He wastes his skills and intelligence on drinking.
People in the West love him and treat him with respect. They consider him one of the wisest and most compassionate, peaceful people. His popularity in the West is because of many reasons. First of all, his story of how he was chosen as the Dalai Lama and taken away from his family at a very young age makes it tempting and attractive to the West. His rough start in life and his escape from the Chinese made people sympathize with him at the beginning.
One of the most famous tragic hero that I know is Steve Jobs. This well known Apple founder, was indifferent to his own health status and this caused his downfall which was the worst case and ended with his death.

He aided his king, never caused danger to other, and bravely fought. He never doubted his calling to defeat Grendel because he believed it was in the hands of God. An epic hero is someone who leaves a mark on earth for what good they did, and Beowulf surpassed the normal typical hero. He demolished Grendel with nothing but his hands and asked of nothing in return. But with every victory, there comes a prize.
An example shining his courage is when him and his men had to go past Scylla when he knew any of them could die and he was also putting himself in danger. Another example is when he chose to be tied up for the passing of the Sirens. This was a courageous act because no other mortal man had been able to do that and make it out alive. One last example is When he came home to all of the suitors in his house. This is courageous because the suitors only cared about getting Penelope and if they cared so much about that why would they want Odysseus to come home to ruin their chances?
Brutus would have been fine if Cassius never talked to him Cassius is what made him such a bad person and brain wash him. Brutus fell to peer pressure if he would have never talked to Cassius about killing Caesar or Brutus becoming a King Brutus would have never stabbed Caesar and Brutus would never have been considered a bad guy because he is not one and he would have never been one.

In Meller and McGee’s book they state that instead of supporting the conspiracy, the “assassination did help Caesar’s reputation” (Meller and McGee 78). The commoners loved Julius Caesar more than ever because they did not agree with the justifications that were given to them during Julius Caesar’s funeral. The conspirators never took in consideration
Even in death Bob Ewell’s fate got to him, he will soon be forgotten and any memory people have of him will be the rude drunk of Maycomb, as he was. Finally Heck, keeping silent about the true nature of Ewell’s death was a reward for Boo’s actions. Boo is a kind soul. We have no proof that he’s ever done anything to hurt anyone and we know he risked his own life to save the lives of Jem and Scout when he had absolutely no obligation to. Exposing Boo’s heroic actions would bring him to be the center of the public eye and it would truly be the end of his happiness.
Most came to believe that he did not care for the economy or the people only what they carried in their pockets causing him to lose support for re-election. After his two successful foreign affairs, Noriega and the Gulf War Americans were definitely happy and showed their support for George. One event that weakened the American people and George’s relationship is when George lied about not having new taxes. WHen he clearly passed acts that established new taxes, this angered many
In the history books, George Washington was considered a great man because he was calm in battle. It was never far from his mind to envision himself as a hero and a conquistador. "There [was] a persistent feeling in his correspondence as well as in his children 's writings that people like Thomas Jefferson, who shied away from battle, were not completely men" (Hendrickson 342). For Hamilton, it wasn 't the blood, the pain, or the suffering of battle that made it appealing to him. Hamilton viewed it as a stage for him to act on, and to display the qualities of selfless courage that would win him the honor, love and respect he so
Because Henry’s father was a first generation immigrant to the United States from China, he had an extreme sense of national pride. On the other hand, Henry is extremely open to all things American which is a catalyst to the formation of a divide between Henry and his father. This difference between them all starts because in an effort to protect his son from discrimination; Mr. Lee sends Henry to an all white school and refuses to let him speak Cantonese at home, even though Cantonese is the only language Mr. and Mrs. Lee can speak. The separation causes Henry to grow up almost without any parental help. Mr. Lee also despises Henry’s friend, Keiko, who is a Japanese-American girl also going to school with Henry.
He would have a great time in China. The Chinese fans love him and, as he sees it they’re complimenting him. “The translator said that the conversion from Mandarin is not perfect and that the fans weren’t chanting ‘lonely’ but something more like ‘loneliness master’ they were saying he was alone at the top, that he had no enemies.” Despite the language barrier he still manages to be an amazing leader. He leads by example and actions. He would also compliment players who performed
President Gerald Ford was left with a population of people that were let down by a scandal that knocked a candidate for the best president this nation had ever seen and just dumped him out of the office. Also an endless conflict that was the war in Vietnam. Coming in with great hostility did not help President Ford when he pardoned Former President Nixon. But, Ford did face the stagflation and recession this nation was having during this time period. Ford always had in his mind that anything could happen that the United States was not immune to anything and this made his disbelief in Government Bailouts a reality.
