“I really had no confidence about completing that swim, and the idea of swimming at night terrified me.” She didn’t believe in herself and didn’t think she would do too well, but she still put her heart into that swim and she kept pushing herself to get closer and closer to her dreams and past all the obstacles that got in her way. Marilyn is truly the greater role model. Motivation isn’t an easy thing to obtain, especially when you have to swim a mile in freezing cold water. Marilyn did not give up because she had multiple people by her side, cheering her on and she wanted to be just like Barbra Ann Scott, who made it big. After all the complications through-out her swim, her fears and all the pressure around her, she finally made it and completed the long, hard and freezing swim. She was granted a large amount of money and a congratulatory telegram from her reason to keep pushing, Barbara Ann
I hope you’re doing well Mr.Harmon , I know you have been through a whole lot of things you would’ve wanted to go through . Now I understand , why people kill and murder others not everyone does it, people have a reason why. But I do believe you are innocent since you are a young boy, of course you’d be nervous or scared. O’Brien gave several reasons why you should come out

Luther King Jr., in his letter, Letter From a Birmingham Jail, uses persuasive techniques to grab the reader’s attention and get them to agree with him.
In Letter From Birmingham Jail, the part I find most persuasive is when Dr. King tells why African-Americans can no longer wait to gain the justice and equality they deserve, and there is not a “right time” to try to gain this justice and equality. It is true that African-Americans cannot not just wait and hope that one day they will gain the equality they deserve. Instead, they must act to gain justice and equality. When people are comfortable, change is unlikely to occur. If African-Americans did not create any tension, they may have never gained the equality they have today. In addition, Dr. King’s descriptions of specific injustices African-Americans suffer make this letter very persuasive. For example, he states that African-Americans
Wilma Rudolph once said, “Believe me, the reward is not so great without the struggle. And I know what struggle is.” Wilma Glodean Rudolph, born prematurely on June 23, 1940, was an incredible woman. (Sanders, 2015). Born in a family of 22 kids, Rudolph had an extremely unwealthy home and life. She had many diseases, but the one that left her disabled was polio. Eventually, she got over polio, and became the fastest woman in the world. Wilma Rudolph was an Afrian Amerian woman that persisted to overcome polio. She created courage and inspiration, and illuminated the world by becoming the fastest woman in the world.
Secondly, Would you ever have the guts to shoot your friend? George may have done it with dignity and for the best but i still don’t think that was okay. George should have looked out for Lennie better than just leaving him alone, or at least let lennie go. If i had that problem, i would have talked to my friend and helped them or go away with them. Shooting your “friend” isn’t being a friend. George didn’t even show emotion he just looked down. I cannot shoot my friend that i took care of, i’d probably see them as a child or younger sibling. He may have done it for the best but he should have thought it more through.
Thousands of women have screamed at the top of their lungs, clawed at the patriarchy, and tirelessly fought for their rights as citizens of the United States of America. From the beginning of mankind, women have been labeled as inferior to men not only physically, but mentally and intellectually as well. Only in 1920 did women gain the right to voice their opinions in government elections while wealthy white men received the expected right since the creation of the United States. A pioneer in women’s suffrage, Susan B. Anthony publicly spoke out against this hypocrisy in a time when women were only seen as child bearers and household keepers. Using the United State’s very own Constitution and Declaration as ammunition, Anthony wrote countless
The U.S Women’s Gymnasts have inspired many Americans, considerably our youth. This team has helped my generation define what it 's like to be an American. Hard work will still payoff, even in today 's society. Although the world seems blurry and difficult, dedication helps keep you on the straight pathway to
I would like to begin, sirs, by announcing; I am not the first with these thoughts. Patrick Henry, Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Paine – only a few of the men that share the same notion. It is true; I do not hold the reputation of these men. Nonetheless, I have been involved in American Politics for the past decade . We have passed the simple point of peace. We have tried many a ways to end this peacefully. Our pleas, petitions, protests – all flouted at the will of the King. Is what we ask, to be treated equal and fair, too much to grant? Too much for our people, yet easy enough to give to our northern brethren? I should say not. But here we are. We have been treated immorally – first in our markets, then in our governing bodies, in our homes,
Abigail Adams explains to her son in her letter that he is on the road to becoming a man. She sees her job as a loving mother. She instructs him on how he might not only make the most of his life, but also might eventually be skilled enough to lead others who might be in need of a leader. In no way does she want her son to be an average man of the time period. In no way will she ever permit it----she loves him too much. She wants him to be the best he can be because that 's a mother 's connection to her child. She cannot let him not express himself because he is way too gifted and talented for that.
Doug. Respectfully, your either a ineffective board member or your intentionally misleading folks. My finger is pointing directly at the truth. Certain folks within the Chambers Executive team are effectively actin as a financial conduit, funding our career elected officials to promote an particular outside interest in Folsom. My proof is solid. Check each incumbents 460 contribution form. I 'll even give you the link. (https://www.folsom.ca.us/depts/city_clerk/elections___fppc.asp)
Thank you for helping our sponsor by assisting on our trip to Flagstaff last week. It was a pleasure to meet you and hear about the various trips you have made in southwestern United States. As you know, we just moved to Arizona. It’s my intention to learn about and see more of my new state.
It is my professional opinion that Lancelot du Lac would be a grand choice for the position of head knight of Camelot. Not only does he have the necessities for the position he also has numerous expanding qualities that will be needed to truly lead the attack.
