However there was one thing that could stop him. Louie had been drafted to the air force, where his real journey begins. He found himself trapped in the ocean with two other crew members that survived. Although the chances of him finding his way home were slim to none, Louie’s family seems to believe in him, especially Pete as he says: “‘If he has a toothbrush and a pocket knife and he hits land, he’ll make it.’” (145) Pete knew Louie wouldn’t give up, and would work with what he has. Louie’s determination and hope continues to push on as he is stuck on the raft with his other two crewmembers.

The author shows this with all of the feelings, facts and descriptions he uses. This book is very important because it teaches the reader things they didn’t know well or proves to them that they are wrong if they believed that the Holocaust was not harmful. No one had the right to treat these people in that way and no one has the right to ban this book because this will be censorship. Night also shows the truth about the Holocaust and teaches us that this period in history should be prevented from happening
Captain Phillips also tried to save his crew by acting like the ship was broken and that there were no more people on board, but the pirates did not believe him. He eventually led the invading pirates away from the Maersk Alabama by getting into the life boat leading them away from his crew saving their lives. The life boat was a small escape boat that was orange and was on the boat in case of an emergency on the Maersk Alabama. He spent five days there before being saved by the navy. Captain Richard Phillips is a great role model and American hero that saves
People will do anything to save themselves rather than trying to save everybody else. For example, in a story I read it tells about a man who had took a boat by himself to get off of a sinking ship. Afterwards, the man was called names such as a coward and things because he saved himself. This man was put into a situation in which he had
The first example of why being skillful is so important in cases of resilience in Unbroken can be noticed when once the plane crashes into the ocean, Louie immediately puts his wits into action. Highlighted in the text: "Louie knew he had to get Phil 's bleeding stopped, but if he went to him, the raft would be lost and all of them would perish. He swam for the raft" (Hillenbrand 3). Louie backtracked and thought about the situations that could be thrown at him for each movement he made. He ended up using his natural instinct which was to save his whole crew over a bleeding cut.
Nonetheless, in the newspaper “The Man In The Water” by Roger Rosenblatt, the literary elements setting and conflict showed moral courage. To begin with, Rosenblatt uses conflict to show moral courage. Furthermore, Rosenblatt also uses the literary element of setting to show moral courage. “Then, too there was the location of the event. Washington, the city of form and regulations turned chaotic, deregulated by a blast of real winter and a single slap of metal on metal.” (Rosenblatt,
Surely, immediately after the plane crash any survivors would be fretful for their life. Rosenblatt claimed that this ‘man in the water’ had a duty that needed to be fulfilled, and that duty was to put others before him. This man wouldn’t have even imagined that an ordinary flight such as Air Florida Flight 90 would end up in a disaster generating a duty for him to save others. Rosenblatt uses specific language that effectively explains the significance of the man’s actions. He said that the man felt an unnerving fact that if he continued to give the rope to others, he would die in the river because of how frigidly cold the Potomac River naturally is.
Grendel’s head was so hard to move that it “was no easy matter for those courageous men, bold as kings, to carry the head away from the cliff” (pg. 54). Instead of getting treasures for the Danes or even his own people, he brings back Grendel’s head that provides no real gain other than a symbol of how courageous and heroic he was. Beowulf does this because he had remorse for not delivering Grendel’s dead body to the Danes, but also because he wanted to ensure that stories of his courageous acts and god-like heroism spreads among rapidly among a vast number of people and

But then he became determined to get it back, he had to get it back before it was lost forever, and he did. He got it back and got the survival pack from the plane. All that was inside the survival pack all it’s riches.
Special Agent Leonard Hatton was on his way to work that fatal morning when the towers were struck and he responded immediately. Although Hatton wasn 't tasked with responding to emergencies he still went and saved many lives. He served the country as a Marian, a firefighter, an FBI agent(Heros to Remember) and he gave his life during the country’s time of need.
