Both Casey and Jeff, two very good friends to Shane, tell him that he expects too much of people and they tell him to go easy on his father. The thing that makes Shane truly realize how much he needs his dad is when his father is badly injured at a rodeo. Shane should have realised earlier that his father is not going to be there forever and he should enjoy the moments that they will share together, instead of ignoring both the fact that his father will not be there one day and the insurmountable value of the time they spend together. The first example that Shane takes his father for granted is when he and Casey are talking about his dad and Casey tells him “You expect too much from people, sometimes, Shane.” (Halvorson, page 92.)

Stacey By:Alanah Bible Courage is when you are brave and do what you think is right no matter what others think or say. In the novel, Roll of Thunder Hear my Cry by Mildred Taylor she uses Stacey Logan. He is a very brave boy who has come up with smart plans so he can stand up for what he believes in and his family. Even though Stacey faced many struggles the main ones were when he came up with the idea to break down the bus, he walked T.J home even though T.J. had been a terrible friend to the Logans, and Stacey stayed and watched what happen when the Wallaces went to the Averys to make sure nothing bad happened to him. Stacey 's actions proved that he was a very brave and smart boy, who loved his family and that he was willing to fight for the land and do whatever he could to help save it even willing to take consequences for it.

While it sounds like a simple goal, many people fail to make themselves happy. My definition of happiness is fairly simple, I want to contribute to something I am passionate about and have a family I love. I want to have the same passion for my career that Mandela had “to replace Apartheid with…non-racial democracy” which was so great that he dedicated his entire life to (Carlin 15). Mandela was so passionate that he endured “the solitude and toughness and quiet routine of prison; [and] the grinding exercise regimen to which he submitted himself behind bars” all “to kill apartheid” (Carlin 17). It is Mandela’s persistence and willingness to suffer because of his passion that I truly admire.

Above all else, a hero is compassionate and humble. Heroism is defined by what is in a person’s heart, not how many yams he can sow. Okonkwo shows great strength as a wrestler but falls short when it comes to compassion and humility and therefore can not be called a hero. Okonkwo was raised by his father Unoka who never earned any titles.
His idiosyncrasy remains loving and understanding, even when his younger son returned home after many of been away with not a penny to his name. The young son showed disobedience to all the goodness his father had offered to him. The young son showed traits such as selfishness as well as being ungrateful. He had no worth for his father’s property nor did he want to work alongside his father on the family farm. He therefore left behind his father and older brother in search of a better life.
We should honor our veterans the way young children honor their favorite superhero. Our veterans are real life superheroes, they willingly fight to protect us and make many sacrifices to ensure our country 's safety. Veterans have to go months or even years without being with their family. They put themselves at risk of developing psychological issues such as post traumatic stress disorder —also known as PTSD— and having to cope with many different injuries. While every person who joins the military does not go through combat, they still endure and live with harsh situations.
