The story says that “The Association was a group of people who helped farm workers have better rights and better pay.” Chavez and his supporters successfully improved the lives of farmers and farm workers. The story states, “Through boycotts, hunger strikes, and marches, they made a difference for everyone.”These days he still inspires community activists and politicians. The story states, “His speeches about justice, community, and education still resonate…” In 2008 Barack Obama adopted Chavez’s motto “Si, Se Puede.”The story says, “Barack Obama adopted it as his campaign slogan.” Obama used it because he wanted to inspire people like Chavez. Senator Robert F. Kennedy described him as one of the best heroic figures of all time.” Cesar Chavez was more effective than Nelson Mandela. Even though Mandela became president, he didn’t do as much as Chavez did.

Professional Fred Hollows was an eye doctor who spent his whole life helping those people who couldn’t afford or have access to basic eye care. He worked really hard to try and end blindness with the goal to improve the health of Indigenous Australians. In Fred’s working career he was a man who was quick to recognise a problem and even quicker to act and find a solution to the issue. One of his quotes is: 'When I 've seen an opportunity, I haven 't sat down and called a committee meeting...we 've gone and done it. ' Fred’s attitude helped to inspire many doctors and other health professionals to volunteer their time for his national program to focus on eye disease and other issues within the Indigenous Australians.
McMurphy also exhibits attributes of a leader or perhaps an individual whom all the other men trust more and leads them all on a journey to become proud and confident again. In the end, even though McMurphy suffers a great deal, he is shown as a capital figure he is willing to sacrifice what he has in order to save the other men in the hospital. One of the main times the men decide to defy the nurse and ward rules is when they decide to plan a fishing trip. This is an absolute crucial part of McMurphy’s story because of the fact that it references directly to the bible, Matthew eight. In the story, Jesus goes out on a boat with his twelve disciples when they are hit by a storm.
In Tuesdays With Morrie, Morrie had differing thoughts about humanity and inhumanity. Morrie, an old man, had lived an amazing, adventurous life. He embraced his disease, and understood that he was dying (Albom 20). He knew all about humanity because he lived a wonderful life,
Josef’s dream job was always to become some sort of doctor. He was a very hard working man, some may say he had a very unhealthy love for his job. Outsiders didn’t know what this blood crazy man was up to, and didn’t worry much because Josef had the ability to keep people calm with his looks and voice. Josef grew up and got his first job as an assistant of a well-known scientist, Dr Otmar von Verschuer. Together they studies almost everything there is to twins.
His achievements were tremendous and he had put so much effort in studies of clinical medicine in which that made him such a historical figure to look up to. Ofcourse Hippocrates is very well known for his ‘Hippocratic Oath’ and the name of the oath is obviously derived from his name which gives him credit for such a finding. He was the first individual ever to mix between philosophy and medicine. His gentle and meditative yet focused prognosis
To this day his documented research has stayed true and his teachings have remained relevant to students of pulmonary medicine and surgery. (Brightside 2014). One of the most known contributions that Hippocrates has imparted on the society is the rules and a number of professional ethical standards of a physician. This was contributed in the form of the Hippocratic Oath, one of the oldest binding documents in history which is still relevant and pledged by new doctors to this day. The Hippocratic Oath is a promise made by doctors, stating that they are not magicians but will always treat the sick to the best of one's ability, with the high standard of treatment, preserve patient privacy, to impart the secrets of medicine to the next generation of doctors and many more.
At the Twelve Ceremony, he is selected to be the new Receiver of Memory, the most honored position in the community. Jonas by receiving these memories from the Giver has to retain all the abandoned memory of pain, war, and emotions and bear the pain alone so that the community can avoid the pain. Within a short time he gains wisdom from the memories he receives and realizes that people have given up their freedom for Sameness. He becomes angry and frustrated that is why he Risks his own life to save the citizens in his community. That is what I liked about Jonas’s character.
Don 't be afraid to suffer with your patients...Deal with everyone who walks in the door and keep your door open" (Farmer 162). Dr. Farmer saw a problem and did everything in his power to resolve it, despite doubts from his colleagues and supporters. Dr. Jim Kim, a professor at Harvard Medical School and one of the co-founders of Partners In Health describes him as, "When Paul started treating people in 1998 in Haiti, everyone said he was absolutely nuts… And here we are, where the goal is to treat every single human on the planet who needs HIV treatment" (Dr. Farmers Remedy for World Health). I find this anthropologist particularly interesting because his story is so diverse.
The United States has had very many heros that served as our presient. Thomas Jefferson, Abraham Lincoln, and George Washington are all heros and were a very important part of our society. They all did everything they could do to make this world a better place, yet they all had their differences in going about doing it. But i will have to say that the strongest president was Thomas Jefferson. Thomas was one of the smartest men to live and not only was he very smart but he had a desire to constantly learn new things.
Rabbi Elimelech Goldberg 's heroism is genuine because he receives no personal gain in his work. To exemplify this, the article “Rabbi With Black Belt In Karate Helping Sick Kids Fight Cancer!” states that "57 year old Rabbi Elimelech Goldberg, affectionately known by most as 'Rabbi G. ' is the founder of Kids Kicking Cancer, a not for profit organization" (Illuminate the World 3). He is truly altruistic as his organization is nonprofit and shows selflessness and humility. He does not expect to gain anything except for the satisfaction of his work, and this in its essence exhibits signs of a hero. The rabbi is heroic because of his traits and his personality, and simply who he is at
I can contribute my knowledge of social justice and ability to be a community servant to this organization. My long-term life goal is to become a hospital owner in multiple underrepresented areas and foreign countries. Being a community servant, one can build character while helping open doors or provide opportunities for those who are less fortunate. I’ve read the many articles of the large groups of Alpha men graduating from Meharry Medical College, that have had such a huge impact on the surrounding communities by giving a helping hand when needed. It’s the small things that count and makes me eager to join the previous groups of male leaders striving to achieve their goals, which defy all odds against
Elie only views the death of his father as a relief. When he focused on survival, he no longer had any tears to give. The fight causes Elie to rid himself of all emotions and forget a connection with his father. This is wrong to forget your feeling of compassion, because it pains Elie that he could not cry for his father. Focusing on your own survival makes you forget compassion for those you
