was a great writer who knew how to motivate you to fight for the better of the world. For the people he was speaking to it made the most sense to use pathos. He felt so strongly for his rights he was trying to activate everyone else to do the same. “I will stay in jail to the end of my days before I make a butchery of my conscience” (MLK, Letter from Birmingham jail, 281). This statement shows just how strongly he feels about is cause.
Teddy Roosevelt thinks the “strenuous life” is a good thing because it challenges people to strive for a better life. He based his thoughts and perceptions on his own experiences for he had to work hard for everything that he once accomplished. Roosevelt values hard effort, dedication, and the idea of improvement. He seems to value the idea that a hard life is better deserved since people actually understand and live through what it takes to get where they want to be, rather than rejecting it for a life of material comfort. It seems that he also values the idea of effort because when we are presented with a personal problem or challenge, it is our decision to “undertake the solution”, even when we know that there is “always danger that
In my opinion Nelson Mandela is one of the best role models to look up to, cause Mandela showed the world a whole new way of thinking and acting, with getting rid of apartheid and starting equality for every human being. Nelson was the first symbol of strength for the black people, he showed hope for every South African person. Nelson would die for the people to get where the world is today. Nelson Mandela was the leader of ANC (African National Congress) where he fought for every South African person, I believe the world would have been different if Nelson wouldn’t have fought for freedom for every individual. What I adore about Nelson Mandela is clearly he’s tolerance, and what he managed to do to society.
The life of Mahatma Gandhi was very impactful on him and lots of other people. His parents influenced him to make the best of his life by getting a good education. They encouraged him to go to school, even though he was very shy and didn’t like to talk much. When he finished high school in 1887, his family suggested that he go to school
As a kid, my parents always taught me to stand up for myself and others. Basically they told me I always need to kindly put someone in their place. Whether I was part of the problem or not. As quoted, “If you see or hear something you don’t think is kind, saying nothing is just as bad as partaking. Don’t be afraid to stand up for someone in the same way you hope someone would stand up for you.
Everyone came into this world the same way and everyone will eventually leave the same way as well, but while your here you need to know a little secret. “What makes us different, is the very thing that makes us special”. A wise man once said that, a very, very wise man, his name, Nelson Mandela. He became so significant in the race to better mankind because he fought for the right to be heard. He made sure that everybody knew that they were a somebody.
Optimism is hopefulness for the future, and, like me, most people get their optimism from their roots, or how they were brought up as a child. My parents would always remind me from a young age that being pessimistic will not help you achieve your goal, so you might as well be optimistic and try. They have always taught me from a young age, and never denied or doubted, that with optimism comes opportunity, and that optimism is, in fact, the key to success. Over the years, I’ve learned that the more optimistic you are, the more creative you can be. With optimistic attitude, one can generate new ideas and create possibilities to move forward faster and more efficiently than at normal times, due to an open mind.
They stood up for the rights they believed in and didn 't back down. Gandhi 's close read showed how powerful and great he was. Nelson Mandela 's close read showed how he want to stop the hate on different colored people. Both of these leader sacrificed stuff in order to fight for the rights they believed in. The Nelson Mandela text was more persuasive because the text had more information in the text about what he did right, and what he sacrificed.
Some of these disabilities are invisible, while others are very noticeable. In either situation, said person with a disability should have a choice on the accommodations they receive and how they are treated or ‘handled.’ Different methods of communication may be needed; however, simply including the individual and asking if they’re interested in participating creates a more positive environment. Individuals with disabilities have worked just as hard, if not more, to get to the place they hold in school, work, or at a university. The most detrimental thing to anybody’s state of mind is to not be taken seriously or to be put at a lower priority because of a disability.
When you are young you do things that you are not are not proud of. Growing up my parents always try to show me the right way to do things. While growing I have noticed that my parents made me who I am. My family shaped me into the young man I am today. The things I have learned to such as morals and values are from my family.
Throughout my childhood, my parents have taught me to be appreciative of my rights as an American and what to many, are privileges, and coming from a modest background, they have instilled me to respect and value others before myself, regardless of their economic status. Because of my parents’ hardships, I have been taught a mantra of “work hard for a better future”, and I later learned that my father’s true dream was beyond achieving personal success, but rather, he wanted to pave a way to success for my sister and me. I believe that it is my responsibility to fully take advantage of my opportunities, because my American Dream is still alive. While I carry my parents’ background, I do not share their history of poverty, and I am met with new open doors and resources that my parents were not as fortunate to have. I want to pursue a higher education, and I aspire to become a stem cell scientist, which will allow me to contribute to research that holds promises of new cures and treatments.
Wes Moore. The guy that had a lot of obstacles through his life that got him where he is today, but he didn’t do it alone. Just like anyone you need to have a positive influence on your life. It could be anyone teacher, boss, parent, friend. Anyone that drives you to want to succeed and for Wes that was his mother, Joy.
My Legacy By Drew Gawlas I wish to leave a personal legacy to my children, one that will live on in their hearts. I do not want to leave behind something with no purpose or meaning, like a meaningless item of mine. Rather, I want to teach my children important values. Of all the wonderful things my parents have ever given me, the greatest gifts were the pieces of moral guidance that shaped me into the person I am today. The legacy I will leave for my children will be the values I teach them throughout their childhoods: compassion, hard work, and confidence.
Everyone has expectations of people; it is human nature. These expectations can be beneficial and push us to accomplish amazing things, like being kind to other people. Some expectations, however, can make people feel inferior and unimportant, leading to consequential decisions throughout life. These expectations stem from homes and communities, like the neighborhood Sonny and his brother grew up in in James Baldwin’s “Sonny’s Blues”. Living in Harlem forced Sonny and his brother to grow up much faster than most people do and exposed them to many harsh realities, making it the true antagonist of the story.
In the different texts I’ve read called “The Purpose Of Education” by Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and “Want to Get Into College? Learn to Fail” by Angel B. Perez I’ve notice although they bear some minor similarities the differences between the both are very clear. One major difference in both the text is the time they were written. Text #1 purpose of education was published in 1947 and text #2 learn to fail was in 2012 already they can both bring up a variety of topics, but I still see some of the same patterns even after half a century later. Not to say that both can’t tap into or overlap on some similar and enthralling ideas about education.
