In Finding Forrester, Jamal was afraid to share that he was a writer. He didn’t want his passion to get made fun of because he isn’t really the “writing” type. William is also afraid of writing more books or showing the world what else he can do. They both end up helping each other out and overcome their fears together. The lesson in Slam teaches you to never give up and always work hard for what you want.
Beowulf, on the other hand, does not love others, but everyone loves him. Both Beowulf and Harry Potter are the main focus of each story, creating the epic journey of an epic hero. They accomplish deeds that no real human could, the setting takes place on land, in the sea, and in the air, both stories accommodate otherworldly forces, are written in elevation of style, and both experience a personal journey. Both epic heroes are decisive, watchful of others, are leaders, and understand the importance of sacrifice and
These lyrics meaning that when someone thought they had them beat, they did not because they had experienced more in their life, and they will not back down. Commentary 2: 12 Stone’s song, “Anthem For the Underdog”, is a good theme song for Ender Wiggin because when the other toon leaders in battle school thought that they had Ender beat, they were wrong. Ender had already gone through so much pain, even though he was a lot younger than the rest of them. Since he has been though that pain, he does not want to have to go through it again, so he will put that pain towards others and will not take the other toon leaders trying to beat him. Peter-
People may also say that it is dangerous for them to be walking around alone. However, Jem and Scout do not get into much trouble and when they do, they learn it was wrong and not to do it again. Lastly, many people believe Atticus is unable to take care of Scout because Aunt Alexandra had to come and help him. However, Atticus did not ask her for help or ask her to come to the house. Some people believe Atticus isn 't a great parent: his kids walk around alone, his kids disrespect Boo Radley, and his kids do not act “correctly”.
According to Charles Mccardel“ He withholds the truth, but finally admits to his transgression. He does this partly to ease his conscience, but also (he hopes) to save his hide and protect his loved ones amid a witch hunt that's running out of control.” Even though he tells Elizabeth what he had done with Abigail without her having to find out through somebody else she does not trust him anymore. It hurts her so bad it is hard for her because what she thought was a good, loving, caring man actually turns out to be a no good cheater. He tries to make up for what he did through the years.
Children are usually afraid of becoming their parents so they try to be rebellious; this isn't the case in this book. Jem and Scout treasure Atticus. They never thought of their father to be very much, but throughout To Kill A Mockingbird, Jem and Scout figure out that their father is a cherishable man. Also, throughout the book Jem and Scout thrived disassociated from each other.
In order to live a successful life on their own, one must show a sense of responsibility. Jobs, schools, and even in relationships, people do not want someone that is willing to put it all on the line, but would rather weigh all their options and outcomes. On another note, one will normally see teenagers and young adults being the risk takers, while people never really witness the older people putting themselves in harm's way. People most likely see this because the older people are wiser, therefore have already experienced the exhilaration of living a “YOLO” life as well as the horrible events that must have transpired for them to learn their lesson. If one chooses to live a heedless life, sooner or later they will realize the mistake
Although they did care greatly for Chris and his sister, they had not shown that in enough ways to prevent the tragedy of Chris’ fate. The fact that his parent were there for his physically, but not mentally had a great effect on him. According to the movie and the book “Into The Wild”, I perceived that the major catalyst for Chris to leave was his parents. Even when he was younger, he had to protect his younger sister from their parents when they would produce fierce fights that led to some physicalities. So in turn, Chris ended up being fed up and couldn’t handle the stress, which concluded with him to leave.

He faces many problems throughout the book, and is always trying to save kids innocence. Holden also wants to stay a kid and not grow up, however he finds out that he can’t do this by the end of the novel. Some people may think that Holden wasn't successful throughout his journey, however, one could also see how he was successful in his journey. By the end of the novel, Holden was able to find out that he couldn't save kids innocence, he couldn’t be a kid forever, and he sees that even though the world is filled with evil, he can accept it, or at least live with it.
In the article Saul says that the boys being tested weren’t like a, “gang” and that they were normal well behaved kids but to an extent they actually were similar to a gang. They were like a gang because they all only had each other to depend on as they are going for the prize and they are always going to be prejudice towards anyone who is trying to get in the way of that. There was an argument that claims that the kids didn’t believe the study results were true because they didn’t understand the experiment, which to me doesn’t make sense, because if the
To undertake a mission is to set a goal and to try to reach this goal, while doing many things to reach it. Doing this can be very dangerous, and can be very risky to attempt. Even though people know what undertaking a mission is, people don't understand why they undertake missions, knowing the very dangerous risks. For instance, Farah Ahmedi fled the border of Pakistan and was forced to climb a mountain while being disabled to reach freedom from a war-torn city. Rikki-Tikki-Tavi chose to fight two cobras who were bigger than him, and an even deadlier snake that was small but had a deadly bite, just to protect his new family.
