Abner Snopes would abuse his son and one particular moment Sarty realize that he did not want to live in fear with his father rules. In this context it is believable that Sarty wants to do the right things from now on,"If I had said they wanted only truth, justice, he would have hit me again." But now he said nothing. He was not crying. He just stood there”(Faulkner, 3).
Holocaust survivor and prolific author, Elie Wiesel thought it was important to stand for something people believe in. He once argued, “There may be times when we are powerless to prevent injustice, but there must never be a time when we fail to protest.” The documentary Bully displays how one should stand up for what he or she believes in, and help make a difference and end injustice. For instance, World War II was a major act of injustice. If someone had said something, it most likely would have been stopped and would have never happened. Although many people say it is not their issue to stand up when witnessing an act of injustice, saying something can genuinely make a difference and help in many ways.
By establishing the fact that he is not insulting the court or trying to rationalize murder, Darrow can clearly show he is only trying to stop the court from giving these children an onerous burden they will have to endure--until their deaths. Darrow continues with, “if I should succeed, my greatest hope will be that for the countless unfortunates … I have done something to help human understanding, to temper justice with mercy, to overcome hate with love” (68). Darrow gives the insight he is not doing this only to be paid, he is presenting his argument in the hope of keeping future generations from the gallows. Darrow’s candor and finesse makes the judge take him seriously and thoughtfully consider his arguments. Through Darrow’s persona, the audience believes he is doing this out of the goodness of his heart, and if he can see these killers’ worth, they should be able to as
Throughout the novel Salva demonstrates determination by pushing himself to do his best and not give up on anything no mater what is going on.

Fahrenheit 451 is a book of warning. It is a reminder that we need knowledge to survive, and we need people who crave this knowledge to take over in generations to come. We need knowledge to combat ignorance and we get this knowledge from reading books and listening to other people's opinions. It is a warning of what might happen if we were to let the ignorance win, and a warning to never let this happen. It is a warning that what we have is valuable and a reminder to never take that for granted.
Salva needed bravery. He found it in himself and used it to get out of the difficult position he was forced into. To demonstrate, the book says, “He knows it will be hard for me, Salva realized. He does not want to leave me there, but he has to go back and fight for our people. I mustn’t act like a baby I must try to be strong” (60).
Rafe's thoughts were “Still, Leo had a point. If this mission was going to be worth doing, I needed to do it right” (Pages 112-114, Patterson). Rafe is going to keep his “no-hurt rule” and follow Leo's guidelines and new rules by making sure he doesn't pull a stunt on Zeke and Kenny again and that he doesn't get detention or in trouble with his mother. For instance, he won’t interact with Zeke and Kenny because he nearly got caught and in big trouble with the principal. In addition, before the new rules, Rafe insisted “If I get detention, it's one week of time out.
In this point of the novel, Santiago has completely giving up on his dreams of pursuing his personal legend, however; through the influence of the crystal merchant, which serves as an example of someone who has become blind to pursuing his personal legend, Santiago further develops the motivation and strength he needs to never give up and to always pursue what he desired. For example, One of the most important things Santiago learned from the Crystal Merchant is the importance of following one's heart and their personal legend. The Crystal Merchant was a symbolic message for the consequence of not following one's dreams. It results in one becoming a sheep, or someone who follows monotonous routines. For instance, the Crystal merchant states that, ‘‘Because I know the things I should be able to accomplish, and I don't want to do so,’’ which further provokes the idea of cowardness amongst himself.
Keating seems to have set out to break the mold of the tradition Welton teacher. He also seems to want his students to also break the mold and think for themselves. He accomplishes this goal by showing them how to look at the world differently and showing them that emotions are not something you should bottle up, but put on a page. Keating also pushes the importance of Carpe Diem or “seizing the day” (Williams,1989). The boys, in turn, take interest in Mr. Keating’s teachings, they take the idea if they are going to die one day, to heart, and begin to live their lives to the fullest.

In addition to being let of prison, Dr. Kevorkian promised he would never participate in assisted suicide again (Morlan). After Kevorkian served his time, he believed that it was pointless to keep advocating for assisted suicide because “if he could not fix the problem then, he would not fix it now.” Furthermore, he stated that it is up to the next generation to keep up this issue. Afterward, Kevorkian decided to travel around the country to talk about assisted suicide instead of actively participating in it. He stated that he wanted to instill this subject into the minds of the next generation so they might begin to advocate and stand up for what they believe
Hernandez made the decision to protect his family by fighting back. He stated “I never wanted to hurt anybody, but they put me in a situation and I had to protect my family” (Sharamm, 2016). There are some cases where individuals usually take matters into their own hands making the situation worst. To speak briefly on this matter when Mr. Zimmerman felt that Martin seemed up to no good the first thing he did was call the police, however at some point he decided to take matters into his own hands to confront the young man. Instead, he should have given the operator a description of what Martin looked like, so that way a patrol unit could have scope the scene.
The way that this generation acts upon the injustice will determine whether or not races will clash against each other for the rest of time or if they will learn to not only respect each other’s differences but embrace the differences as well. The fight against prejudice will go on for the rest of time as there will always be people that will believe these prejudices, but the important part about the fight is that each person does their part to make sure that their friends and loved ones learn the meaning of
