Baba, Hassan and Amir all face difficuluties throughout their lives but they face the challenges head-on and eventually they all forgive themselves.

Introduction: From time immemorial a lot of ink has been spilled on the concept of traumatic psychology developed in men. People have long proclaimed, “What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger.” (www.childtrauma.com). Psychological wound brings experiences and help people to grow more strong. Sometimes traumatic growth doesn’t happen naturally, it also can be hereditary. Once people experience psychological trauma, people can never be able to forget that.
In the novel it states, “They carried the common secret of cowardice barely restrained, the instinct to run or freeze or hide, and in many respects this was the heaviest burden of all, for it could never be put down, it required perfect balance and perfect posture. They carried their reputations. They carried the soldier's greatest fear, which was the fear of blushing. Men killed, and died because they were embarrassed not to” (O’Brien 24). Even though Kiley was a very courageous person, he still demonstrated cowardice at
Atticus had the courage to take the case although it was full of dislikes of the people of Maycomb. He also had to face the fear of endangering the lives of his two young children and family name. Atticus was not only courageous; but he was also righteous and he was incapable of turning his back on those in need. Atticus was courageous by overcoming all of the heartless comments of those around him, and he never showed his true fear to his
I know others might feel differently but in this essay I give my reasoning on why I believe that Americans are brave, welcoming, and judgmental. A lot of Americans are very brave. They endure things but tend to not care and still try to be their own individual selves. “ Sitting there, with his eyes almost shut from his beating, making another American flag.” (McCain pg.7) This is a great example of an American who is brave. Even though, he was beaten in an inch of his life for having the flag in his shirt, he still decided that he wanted to have the American flag still close to him while he was imprisoned, so he risked getting another beating and sewed it in his shirt again.
Archetypes in literature are often seen as courageous and selfless individuals. When no one else seems willing to go the distance or go that extra mile, they do. Aside from this, they are also seen as the underdog; when all odds are against them they persevere. A great example of this is seen in the “Percy Jackson & The Olympians: Lightning Thief” written by Rick Riordan. Percy, in the novel, is written as a troubled youth battling his own internal battles all while trying to find himself and coming to terms with the fact that he is different and will forever be different.
Soon, despite the very fact that the government had encouraged this move itself, officials and important peoples found the settlers to be troublesome, even more so than the natives themselves(Page 20). But while the tenacity of these people was perceived as troublesome, there was very little reason why they shouldn’t be, considering that the prolonged existence of these people was because of their collective wariness of government and oppression and would only pledge loyalty to direct blood (Pages 20-21). If anyone were to survive in those lands, it would be these hardy people that have known no easy times and desired the solitary ways of life that the Appalachian Range provided (Page 22). Despite the acclamations from the Little America Party that the, *The Little America Party opposed the early settlement of the Appalachian region. Why?
Life is full of difficult situations, and everyone can face these difficulties. When people want to achieve their goals, they come across some obstacles. People who are successful are not always the ones who have the best skills.We often see some people born in bad situations,but they never give up.The book named The Pact is about a true story that focuses on three young men .The story takes place in Newark and New Jersey.The three main people are George Jenkins, Rameck Hunt and Sampson Davis.They grow up with many difficulties,but they all decide to become doctors.They do not give up. Also, they help each other to success. All three of them have good stories,but I think Rameck’s story is motivating.There are three factors that let Rameck become successful.The first one is that Rameck learns from mistakes.The second one is that Rameck gets support from mentors.The final one is that Rameck gets help from institutional support.
This shows honesty which is another one of the virtues, honesty gets you through a lot of situations and in this case it is getting Conrad through a bad night but also a much needed sit down to clear things up about how he is feeling. Lack of communication is a huge factor in blow ups and a setback in getting better. Communication with yourself is the strongest communicating relationship you should have. Conrad had a strong communicating relationship with himself but not with the people around him. He needed to learn that there are people around him that want to help him.
Fighting it everyday like Beowulf fought for his people. All of these Organizations are heroes for fighting against drugs but there are a lot of other heroes. Heroes that don’t get as much recognition as they should. Those heroes are the everyday people that whether they are involved or not put in their best effort and put in everything they can. Like “All of Beowulf’s band had jumped from their beds, ancestral swords raised and ready, determined to protect their prince if they could.” All of these people, like the soldiers from Beowulf, fight together determined to put an end to this
