Everyone trusted Harriet because they knew she wasn't doing this for herself, she was doing it for them. She told the slaves stories so that the could have the incentive to keep pushing so they can reach freedom. In the text on pg.135 it says,”Harriet had found it hard to leave the warmth and friendliness, too. But she urged them on.” Harriet Tubman was an amazing woman, her effect on people was extraordinary. She saved so many slaves and gave them freedom, something they never thought they could ever have.
The characters that were chosen to play each role fit perfectly. I loved how the director and producers decided to show Akeelah talking to her dad because it allowed the viewer to see how much he meant to her and that he is the reason she spells. This movie was empowering and consisted of a powerful message that encourages you to be who you are and not let other people stop you from doing what you are meant to do. Akeelah had to overcome so many challenges with people judging her and problems with her mom, but everyone was able to come together and help her. I loved that they showed all the people in the community she worked with helping her spell the final word.
I approve of Grace Ann because even though she’s Fran’s little sister, she helps out Fran more than she notices and she’s there ready to defend Fran whenever she needs it. I also approve of Mike Riordan for the reason that Fran decided to tell him the truth about her even though she didn’t know him very well at that time and he was very understanding and caring about the whole situation. Then further into the book, Fran and him know that they are attracted to each other, but Fran kept on pushing him away and he just waited for her to be ready, so he was really patient and it paid off because Fran and him get married and have a daughter. The characters I most disliked are Bobby Benedetto and Patty Bancroft, who helped Fran and Robert leave. I strongly disliked Bobby Benedetto for the reason that he abused Fran and did so much damage to her, also because he’s the reason for a miscarriage and an abortion that Fran had.

Through everything with her dad and everyone’s disapproval Desdemona remained positive with all the hardships she went through and kept a good attitude. Another good thing she did was fulfilled her correct roles and duties such as being a good wife, helping others, and being faithful and loyal. At any moment Desdemona could have left Othello because all of the chaos she had to go through, but she didn’t, instead she stuck by his side through thick and thin. An example of this would be one of her final words to Othello “And you have mercy on me too! I never did anything wrong to you in my life.

They became the story and this story affects not only the entertainment industry but also culture, geography, race, religion and so much more. Oprah wanted to show her gratitude toward the women who have endured assault and abuse because no matter what circumstances they went through they still got up and provided for their family and themselves. They like everyone else had dreams and some people pursue them no matter what. Not everyone comes forward and tells their story or maybe they did but its not able to reach everyone's ears. We might never know their names but just know that they are among

Franklin 's enthusiastic attitude is a great attribute she has that sets her apart from and makes her better than other athletes. Coaches are willing to continue training Franklin, and help her because of her positive approach through everything she does. For example, her coach "who began coaching Franklin with the Colorado Stars when she was 7" (John Meyer, Denver post article) has stuck with her for over a decade. He has done this because coaches love athletes who listen to them! He realizes that he will see results from the time and commitment he has put in with Missy.
(TED, 2010) But, when she finally realized the truth it was her self-belief that helped her accomplish everything she did. I feel that the way her parents handled the situation is both right and wrong. It’s right in the sense that it taught her self-belief and that is what took her far in life. But, on the other hand her parents acting like she didn’t have a disability kept her from being true to herself,
