The rank of Eagle Scout is the highest attainable in the Boy Scouts of America and on average only four percent of scouts ever earn this achievement. I’m writing to you all about when I earned mine, fellow classmates, to enable all of you to know me and my values better. I earned my Eagle Scout rank on June 23, 2016, just managing to finish all the necessary requirements and paperwork less than a week before my eighteenth birthday. However, a scout will not be able to receive the Eagle Scout rank if they are unable to complete all the necessary requirements and submit the proper paperwork before they turn eighteen as that is when scouts “age out” of the organization. However, even had I not been able to obtain my Eagle I can still say I learn

Winston Smith, the protagonist in George Orwell’s dystopian novel Nineteen Eighty-Four is portrayed by the author to be a person very different from the character of a hero in the traditional sense. He is not supremely courageous or extraordinary in any way. Winston is a deeply flawed and complex individual who is not equipped with the virtual invincibility of a classic hero. He is essentially not a significant character in the context of the book’s setting. He does not lead a grand revolution or take on Big Brother directly.
In Gabriel Garcia Marquez’s short story, A Very Old Man With Enormous Wings, there is a clear theme of the coexistence of compassion and cruelty, which exists in the hearts of the people of the town. Although compassion and cruelty are direct opposites, it is still possible for the two to coexist. That is one of the points that is made clear in Garcia Marquez’s short story, A Very Old Man With Enormous Wings. The story, written in 1955, focuses on the theme of the coexistence of compassion and cruelty in the hearts of the people of the town. (1) When an old, weak, and dirty man with huge wings appears in Pelayo and Elisenda’s yard, the couple is compassionate enough to let him live and stay on their territory.
The heroic character also doesn’t get killed until the end of the story which also helps distinguish whether it’s a heroic story or not. In the movie, Jack the Giant Slayer, Jack barely survives every dangerous moment, which shows the character’s strong life. When the Giant meets three men including Jack, he barely escapes death. Jack was hiding under the water, but right front of the Giant, which is impossible to be invisible. We could see the Giants are not that smart through the Giant’s wrinkle because it tells that they are old.
“It’s not the load that breaks you down, it’s the way you carry it” (Lou Holtz). Ernest Hemingway’s novels all have a similar main character that portrays a term called a Hemingway Hero. In his novel, A Farewell to Arms, the main character Frederic Henry shows traits to classify him as a Hemingway Hero. The load mentioned in the quote on Frederic Henry is stress. Henry’s stress comes from many sources such as what happens to Catherine, fellow soldiers, and the war.
Since sixth grade, the Boy Scouts of America, specifically Troop 39 in Burlington, has played a large role in my personal development and growth. I started at the bottom of the totem pole, and worked my way to the top through years of hard work and dedication to finally reach my childhood goal of being an Eagle Scout. This journey through scouting, and my achieving in attaining this rank, also represents my transition in my life from childhood to adulthood, within both my family and community. As I grew as a scout, I also grew as a person; and although my being an Eagle Scout marked an end to my scouting career, it also marked the beginning to my life as an adult. As an Eagle Scout, I 've learned many skills that proved to be useful in scouting, but also in life as well.
_Literary Essay In the play “The Watsons Go To Birmingham” and the poem, “Making Sarah Cry” they both have similarities and differences. In both text and poem they share the theme of courage.

In the poem, My Papa’s Waltz, the speaker, Theodore Roethke, writes about a father and son waltzing. Further investigation suggests there is more going on than a waltz.
