Calvin Coolidge was a President who exemplified many important values; he is well-known for his honesty, integrity, rationality, self-discipline, and hard work. Throughout his life, he always remained true to himself and to these values, even when times were tough and it would have been easier to abandon them. This often times seems to be a rare occurrence amongst politicians, especially those who are prevalent in government today, but that is just a testament to the type of man, and President, that Coolidge was. While all of the values that were held by President Coolidge are incredibly important values for one to posses, I personally find that hard work is the most important of all of them. I believe this because nothing in this world is free; everything comes at a price and often times that price is the tireless dedication and hard work of those fighting to succeed.
Chamberlain and Kilrain were very close, and it is assumed that Kilrain was a fatherly figure to him. Kilrain, also thinks highly of Chamberlain, saying that he’s “never served under a better man” (Shaara 231). The author also uses conversations about slavery and color between the two to illustrate Chamberlain’s character. Kilrain says “I’ve seen a few blacks who’ve earned my respect” (Shaara 176), prompting Chamberlain to share his thoughts. Chamberlain replies “to me there was never any difference” (Shaara 176).
A Man of True Dignity In a world full of injustice and cruelty, people like Atticus who fight against that norm are incredibly important. Harper Lee’s novel, To Kill a Mockingbird remains one of the best novels ever written, partially because of Atticus, a very wise man who embodies exactly what dignity ought to be. Atticus carries himself in a matter that deserves respect and honor. Not a word comes out of his mouth that he has not thought through carefully and he possesses words of wisdom for any scenario or situation in life. Throughout the novel, Atticus clearly lives his life in a very discerning, upstanding and peaceful manor.
His speeches that I heard in this movie impressed me by their sincerity and dedication to his own race, but at the same time respect for the white. He said that we are not to hate those who hate us. King believed that one day Afro-Americans will get what they are fighting for. That’s why they have to start preparing for being ethical, sane, reasonable. His tolerance and acceptance towards others impressed
People might wonder what was so great about Malcolm X and what made him who he is today? Malcolm X was an inspiration towards African Americans. He led by example and stood up for his rights. He wanted change and worked his hardest for black people, like himself, to have fair opportunities as white men had. His assassination did not fall short because he did everything he could during his lifetime for African Americans to have equal rights and was one of the most influential leaders towards black men.
Compassion is concern and sympathy for the misfortune of others. It is caring for other people. A president must have this quality because it makes sure the president makes his decisions based on the well-being of all of the citizens. President Lincoln was one of the most compassionate people in history, because he thought of everyone, even the slaves. No matter how many people disagreed with him, he wanted the best for everyone.
“…what will go down in history as the greatest demonstration for freedom…” in the fist sentence of the total speech what shows the believable that it’s the history of black men’s freedom. In fact, he succeeded so that he became one of the greatest speakers in the world because of this speech. “Nineteen sixty-three is not an end, but a beginning” shows that King believes his dream black people’s rights and life same as white people, will achievement eventually. And not only he believe it, but also it persuasive other people. “And so even though we face the difficulties of today and tomorrow, I still have a dream.
Kelsen defines law as a type of norm. Therefore, it is subject to a normative order, which makes the “the specific meaning of an act of will directed at a definite human behavior”. Afterwards, Kelsen prescribes two conditions, which if fulfilled by any legal norm, it “is” a proper positive norm. The first condition is that: this norm should be “posited” to be created by an act of a human being, subsequently, any norm created by a god, by nature or by a superhuman being is not “positive” law. The second condition is: the legal norm must be effective which means that people should obey the legal norm and if not obeyed at least applied to them.
Society and respect are hooked together. A society cannot function without respect because of the following reasons. Respect is an offspring of altruism, a biological layer on the basis of society. Secondly, because it is the moral foundation of a human society. Above all, without respect, progress in a society is bound to hinder.
I think by reading this book, that perhaps Harper Lee has fulfilled her intentions with me as a reader, that I have therefore become a better person. I find Atticus a very idealistic, moral character. He has a great sense of humor and tries his best to raise his children as a single parent. I like how Lee used the first part of To Kill a Mockingbird for us to get to know Atticus as a person and a father, not just as a white lawyer defending an African American. Atticus also has strong views on the treatment of whites toward blacks; I loved what he said in the book: "As you grow older, you'll see white men cheat black men every day of your life, but let me tell you something and don't you forget it - whenever a white man does that to a black man, no matter who he is, how rich he is, or how fine a family he comes from, that white man is
