While his uncle was alive, he helped Salva do everything throughout the journey. Even when he died nobody forgot him and Salva’s memory of his loving uncle gave him the strength to finish the journey. Food and water was the most important factor that led to his survival. He knew that there was barely any water in the desert and that it was hard to find food which taught him to treasure everything he was given. Throughout the book we are led to believe that Salva’s parents and siblings had passed away but he never lost hope that they were still alive.
Others argue that 9/11 had more tragedy than humanity, but they are very mistaken. 9/11 had struck much tragedy, but still others kept people safe and gave them everything they needed. “They spent the next three days in that town, where the mayor and most of the residents cooked elaborate meals, let them use their showers, even borrow their cars.”(Gander) These people gave the damaged victims hope and safety along with the sense of family. People also went on protest for these victims and their losses this put their lives in danger, but they did this even with the dangerous circumstances even then they walked off from their protest and went to help the families.“The town’s bus drivers, who were on strike that day, walked off their picket lines and went back to work. Bakeries went into overdrive production, hospitals staffed up, and many of the townspeople opened their homes and offered their beds to the ‘plane people.’”(Gander) In many situations humanity takes many forms and is still their in a time of
For the rest of the trip he used his leadership skills to encourage Salva to take “one step at a time” and eventually, the group. The group also respected Jewiir as well for being an amazing leader. When Uncle Jewiir died, the group decided to bury him out of respect. Take note that five other people died before him, yet they didn’t even get buried at all. The main reason why Salva became such a great leader was because of Uncle Jewiir’s
Arthur Radley is misunderstood by Scout until she finally meets him, seeing that he is a nice man. She thinks he is nice because he saved her and Jem’s lives, and if he had been “evil”, he would not have helped them. He also gave them small gifts in a hole in a tree, which, at the time, was his only connection to them. “Before [Atticus] went inside the house, he stopped in front of Boo Radley. ‘Thank you for my children, Arthur,’ he said” (Lee
Eliezer and the other inmates believe freedom is close; a loss of innocence would have meant a loss of hope. “My father’s presence was the only thing that stopped me...I had no right to let myself die. What would he do without me? I was his sole support.” (Wiesel, 87) Although Eliezer supported his father, his father supported him. “For a ration of bread I was able to exchange cots to be next to my father.” (Wiesel, 108) It does not take much to get what you want in times such as these.
I know some information about Mitt Romney because the video about his life and it said he always tried to be the best he could at a young age. This is also true for King Arthur because when he was a kid he was made the maid to clean up and everyday he would always think he could be a knight even though his family he couldn’t. This wasn’t the same for Romney though I just made this a similarity because they both tried so hard to get there by thinking of running or being king or governor. That seems easy but it’s really not when you have to stand in front of people and say you can trust me to be your

They, Mack and the boys, started from nothing and then created something out of it. They were able to achieve a meaning lifestyle even though they faced many challenges. But that’s what helped them become successful.

He spent time reading and writing in his spare time. The fate of Harry has also been changed, he also had a happy life with his family. In contrast, Tom was sold down the river. Though he also had a glimmer of hope, he cannot got rid of bad luck. In the novels of South and North to escape itself also has a symbolic meaning.
Surprisingly, by the end of the movie, he opened up to his Hmong neighbors next door. This transaction took a long time for him to break over the fence but he soon began to see other cultures as normal, everyday, people. He finally realized people of other cultures are real people with the same needs as he has. My favorite part was when he came to a point that he was protecting the Hmong family as if it was his own. 3.
I’ve come to terms that not all memories are happy but they are the reasons happy ones can be so much better. That being said, I’ve grown up fortunate. I have a happy family with both parents, a house, and I’ve never been deprived in a survival way. Watching the PBS video I was sad with how many letters Andre Fenton was receiving of people wanting to erase their memories, one guy even going as far to say he wouldn’t mind even if it meant losing all of his memories. At first, I thought how amazing it could be if we could erase memories because I first thought of criminals possibly getting a second chance-if they were able to start completely fresh.
This helped him improve these challenges and get over these obstacles because most people in his community had lost loved ones during the war, but thanks to his luck and him being courageous, his family had few losses, which gave him the opportunity to continue life as it was before he went to war. “Then he made the journey to Enugu and found another miracle waiting for him”(390).

Elory and Tim had spent so much time together that Tim thought of Elroy as a father figure. He remembered the time they first met, and all that Elroy had done for him. Tim had now realized that Elory just wanted the best for him, whether that be escaping war; or coming to the realization that war wasn 't that bad. These flashbacks made Tim miss his family, which sparked overall drive and initiative to do what was best. If it wasn’t for Elory being a father figure to Tim who knows if Tim would have returned home to his family and
