After telling the Trojans of how he escaped the sacrifice of his own death, Sinon asks the Trojan’s to pity him. Quivering, Sinon says, “I beg you, therefore, by the High ones, by / the powers that know the truth, and by whatever / still uncontaminated trust is left / to mortals, pity my hard trials, piety / a soul that carries undeserved sorrows” (II, 199-204). Sinon connects with the Trojan’s by proving that he too believes in the gods; therefore, creating another similarity between him and the Trojan’s. By using ethos, Sinon established his credibility and a common enemy with the
Anthem is a very symbolic novel that reinforces and expresses Ayn Rand's beliefs. The novel Anthem focuses on collectivism which is the thought that everything should be done for the good of the group. Great examples of symbolism is the uncharted forest, the name prometheus and the light bulb. The uncharted forest is in part a symbol of the unknown. It withholds many mysteries which draws Equality 7-2521 to try and solve them.
A similar theme of spiritual struggle appears in both narratives. In the first place, the targeting of places of worship indicates that the conquest was occasioned to establish a new religious order. Paradoxically, even after presiding over the plunder of the sanctuaries, Kritovoulos notes that the Sultan was concerned with the progress of Christian faith. Mehmed II identified a critical spiritual leader within the Byzantine church who was called Gennadius. The Sultan made him the High priest for all Christians and allowed him to exercise all the rights the church possessed before the conquest.
That played against how American views itself as well as how the show the poor appreciation for the global powerhouse of nationalism and how nationalism is viewed as bad in the States… The discussion patriotism and nationalism always get brought up, yet the difference is hard to tell at all. Majority of Americans citizens has the highest sense of honor and pride for their country wanting action to be taken after the attack of 9/11 to their country. Those views of honor, pride and can be seen all through social, cultural, and political with our values and beliefs held high. The roots back to pride in which the citizens who do anything for their country, examples are the national anthem, national holidays, etc. Nationalism is everyone and no one in America can see its effects.
The love of a family is life’s greatest blessing. In life, there is a universal desire for oneness among people—we want to belong. It is why we collaborate, support common causes, cheer for sports teams, feel nationalism; it’s why we build villages, towns, and cities. Families are where we connect ourselves in relationships to past, current, and future generations. For many, family is not only a blessing, but our greatest accomplishment.
“Patriotism is supporting your country all the time and your government when it deserves it.” Mark Twain. Do you truly appreciate the country you live in? The fact that you can be proud of saying the ‘Pledge of Allegiance’, can have an easier lifestyle, see amazing attractions, and have rights and freedom.When people show patriotism, this is showing their country love, devotion, and dedication. They show patriotism because they simply love their country. It doesn't matter if you're from a different country, patriotism is a needed quality.
A hero is someone who saves something crucial to the life of large population of people. In Haroun and the Sea of Stories, The Hero Haroun fights off the Cultmaster Khattam-Shud and the chups in order to save the sea of stories. Saving the sea is vital not only because it’s where all the stories are created, but also it’s where some of the living organisms live. A unique attribute of a hero is he or she doesn’t just fight for themself, rather they fight for something that benefits and will unite a group of people. A hero must also fail many times before he or she is able to succeed.
I have listed several things that are important to me including freedom of speech, embracing diversity, appreciating America’s natural beauty, and the fundamentals of equal opportunity. This is by no means an exhaustive list, but rather just some of the ideals most important to me as I think about what it means to be an American. It’s likely a list that may change over time, but yet one that can tie back to the fundamental ideals our founding fathers seemed to cherish themselves. Finally, I would be remiss to not acknowledge my sincere appreciation for all those brave men and women who have fought to make these freedoms possible. By virtue of their personal sacrifice they might possibly best define what it truly means to be an American and that we are the land of the free because of the
History is full of heros but, what makes these people heros. Is it their bravery on the battlefield, the honor they give to their family, or their intelligence. Much of this is true in the time of ancient Greece. Although Grecian heroes give the gods some credit for their gifts they are often concerned about bringing the glory and honor upon themselves or their family; however, Biblical hero's want to bring honor and glory to God. Odysseus is a hero to the Greeks but not from a Biblical standpoint because of his arrogance toward his intelligence, perseverance, and courage.
National identity, that sense of cohesion on a national scale as a unified whole, given to its people through culture, language, tradition; and of course varying depending on the different echelons of society within a nation. In the case of country India these boundaries are set rather firmly in light of the social stratification known as the caste system. Caste in its simplest form being a system of social ranking that is predetermined to one’s birth. In the film Bandit Queen, this is called into question, and if one were to critique the film in relation to this pieces outline, it would seem that rather than giving one a sense of any one dominant construction of national identity it opposingly, due to this form of social structure, gives the viewer a sense the countries lack of an explicit one. But then again, perhaps it is our own western prejudice to think of a national identity as a unified whole rather than an assimilation of many subgroups of identities within a nation.
