“Making Sarah Cry” and “Susan B Anthony Dares To Vote” are very similar. In the article and poem, they both have the same theme of courage. In Making Sarah Cry, Sarah does not give up and continues to show courage and go outside for recess, even though she is being made fun of. In the passage Susan B Anthony Dares To Vote, Susan continues to fight for women's rights and will not give up, that is showing courage. While both the passages share the theme of courage, the mood in each is very different.
“ I should not want you, even if you asked to come. You have made your choice; you can be what you want to be” (Ml. Language of literature…). When Ismene refused to help Antigone, Antigone was furious with Ismene’s betrayal and basically called her a traitor that she wanted nothing to do with, even though she most likely knew that Ismene was going to choose the state over her and their brother. Antigone was hoping her sister would choose family over the state, but Ismene didn’t
Courage is having strength in the face of pain or grief. In the book called Roll of Thunder Hear My Cry, Mildred Taylor did a great job showing how Cassie Logan has courage and that she can stand up for what is right. Cassie showed courage when she was in Strawberry, going up against Lillian Jean Simms (her enemy), and helping TJ even though her was really mean and rude to her. Cassie Logan was a southern girl who lived in Mississippi. She didn 't like being told what to do
Courage is resistance to the fear that surrounds you. Throughout the book Roll of Thunder Hear My Cry, Mildred D. Taylor, uses Cassie Logan as a character that displays courage and stands up for what she believes in no what challenges come her way. Cassie reveals her courage by standing up for Little Man, and saying that she´ll hurt whoever hurt Papa, and standing up to Mr. Barnett. Cassie is a smart, sassy and outspoken girl, her personalities help her achieve her convictions. Would you ever stand up for your brother or sister even if you knew that you would get in trouble?
Malala convinces the world that education is a human right which should not be taken away through the use of Ethos and pathos which motivate the audience to back up Malala in her cause Malala utilizes many rhetorical devices, withal one she employs numerous times in the book is hypotyposis which means the vivid description of the scene. An example of this would be when the author addresses “ When I close my eyes, I can see my bedroom. The bed is unmade, my fluffy blanket in a heap, because I’ve rushed out for school”
In conclusion, Melinda is frightened, brave, and lonely as shown in her actions. She might have done the right thing to call the cops and to stand up to Andy, but without any support from friends and family, it must have been hard for her to do. The quote in the first paragraph explains when you are frightened you know that you are going to do something courageous. Melinda might have been scared to fight against Andy, yet it paid off when she helped the other girls in her school and protected
Moreover, this explains that If Stacey were to be caught touching Jeremy this could happen to him especially if Jeremy were have malevolent actions towards Stacey or wanted to retaliate against him with insidious things.. Furthermore, this also explains that if T.J. were Stacey's friend that this would not happen since this law does not apply to colored people. It is Christmas time in the book and Papa goes on to explain why Stacey can not be friends with the baleful Jeremy. On page 158 it states, “‘We Logans don’t have much to do with white folks. You know why?
The main reason as to why individuals were judged by other was due to racial prejudice. For example, Calpurnia decides to invite Jem and Scout to the First Purchase M.E. African Church. Once they arrive, Calpurnia, Jem, and Scout were confronted by Lula; a racist lady that was not pleased to see white children at an African church. Calpurnia’s decision to bring Jem and Scout to her church lead to Lula judging her. In addition, Dolphus Raymond’s decision of marrying a black woman, having mixed children and spending most of his time around black folks causes the society to judge his ways of living.
Tobin suggests that, “She argued that the meaning of any individual word or statement is not absolute but rather is determined by the context in which it was spoken” (9). Hutchinson’s word was being turned against her because how the leaders were interpreting it. She then proceeded to question, disrupt, mock, and sarcastically reply to the leaders (Tobin 13). Hutchinson was frustrated that her word was not being accounted for because she was a female voice, so she started to make a statement with her words. “There’s a gap between a speaker 's meaning and a listener’s understanding; and that words only gain meaning through the mutual agreement of the speaker and the listener…”
A third commented how the Bible says man is sinned when taking the apple from the serpent, not women, so therefor it was God’s wish to make women inferior. However, most of the women at the convention were too proper to speak out. When no one was brave enough to defend themselves, Truth spoke up. The crowd boo-ed and hissed when they saw a black woman start to speak; even though they couldn’t stand up for themselves, they didn’t want a black person to stand up for them.
The fact that she can walk away from all those terrible experiences with love for her parents is incredible. Another thing I loved about this book is how it represents her parents, with all their faults, and their poor mentality, at its worst, without anger, or really any judgment, just with the love. If she had been bitter in her description it would not have been as amazing. This memoir was written with forgiveness making me respect her for not only surviving such a strange childhood to become a successful, but for being able to view her past with
Women said that they needed power and wanted to make their own decisions. Men completely disagreed. “To their frustration, women found, just as female activists had a century earlier, that the men in these social reform movements were reluctant to give women any substantial
Troin Bellisario, from Pretty Little Liars is such a great leader, because she is integrity, self-assured, and last but not least commitment. She has motivated many people to never give up on their dreams. Integrity is one of the first things that relate Troin on the show, and in real life. When the rest of the girls had a doubt, or have a question, she would respond with pure honesty. She has mentioned “you don’t have to be perfect at everything, and that it’s okay to make mistakes”.
The biggest shocker wasn 't that I wasn 't able to go, the biggest shocker was that this woman once she heard about my legal status suddenly thought I wasn 't deserving of this opportunity. At that moment I felt dirty my feelings were a mixture of intense anger towards my parents for putting me in this situation I did not agree, disgusted with myself and excluded from everybody else around me. Before this incident I was okay with being an immigrant, but after this I have never been okay with my immigration status because everyday it feels like I’m the one free criminal breaking the law. I think what she was thinking was “This kid is not American, therefore no benefits for her” or something among those lines. To be honest I am not completely sure what her stereotype I just know this has been one of the most traumatic experiences Ive experienced in
Would they believe her or would they think it’s a desperate cry for attention? Accepting what has happened is more difficult than just pretending like it never happened. Her environment at home was also not as accepting as most. Melinda felt there was no point in telling her parents because she felt they wouldn 't trust her word. The lack of friends affected Melinda greatly throughout the book too.
