She suffered through the Rwandan Genocide and Steve Erwin is keen on sharing her story with the world. In her story, Left to Tell, Dr. Wayne W. Dyer’s temptation to elevate Immaculee’s status in the world leads to a misleading interpretation of her divinity and perfection.
If that was said about Muslims there would have been a apology a few moments later, which is very sickening to hear. While she constantly brought up Putin and Russia saying that good thing there wasn’t a teleprompter to read off of since it would be so hard translating from Russian.

It is this part in the poem that somewhat revealed the importance of his boastfulness in this poem. Other heroic tales have helped us form a set of characteristics that tend to describes heroes, one of those characteristics being humble.

1. The author that inspired me the most was Dante Alighieri. This poem was the most inspiring for me because this shows many tales of redemption, that a sinner can overcome the evilness that has consumed their lives. I am excited by this tale because I am a sinner, I have not done as horrible things as the characters in this poem have done, but we can all overcome this temptation, no matter how horrible the sin. When Dante made his trip through hell and purgatory, I went on a trip with him, realizing my sin and being shown how I can be forgiven from these sins.

And finally, he was very noble with his fatal flaw (pride) to the point that he admitted that he did something wrong. Throughout all of his travels I think the moral of it is gratitude. Because as Melody Beattie once said “Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for

Kyla, “I think that the Japanese-Americans handled themselves very positively. Although we kept them behind fences and locked them up like they were criminals they still fought for us, they fought for our country and I think that takes someone who really loves America to do that.”-Kyla . I agree whole heartedly with you that these people have poise that goes beyond the norm, Christ like. The way they turned the cheek and endured for what they believed in was truly amazing. George Takei did a great job telling their story, true heroes.
