He eventually obtained this success and became one of the pillars of America but not without suffering along the way. In the piece “Alexander Hamilton”, Miranda depicts Hamilton as a Hispanic minority who overcame an abundance of struggles and hardships in order to obtain a better and more fruitful life.

Of the numerous components utilized in creating an intriguing story, the setting tends to play one of the most crucial roles in the way the story is perceived. In Randy Pausch's, The Last Lecture, the setting, Pausch's memory, proves to be extremely significant in that it opens a window into what he recalls and values from his past, and what lessons he has learned that could be beneficial to many others. Also, being figuratively placed into Pausch's memory allows for a greater understanding of the positive, extremely intelligent and determined person Pausch has always been, and desires to be remembered as after he has passed. In the case of The Last Lecture, the setting and one of the fundamental themes prove to be nearly one in the same.
Through his work, Miranda expresses immigration as having a positive effect in the history of the United States. In the article “How Lin-Manuel Miranda Shapes History” Edward Delman questions Miranda about the soundtrack for Hamilton. Preluding the interview Delman writes “Perhaps the most significant lesson the show might teach audiences, and one that has particular relevance today, is the outsized role immigrants have played in the nation’s history. Alexander Hamilton was an immigrant—a fact that Miranda repeatedly emphasizes throughout the show”. With a main character that was an immigrant Miranda can show how immigrants can influence and shape history.
The brilliant inventor and entrepreneur Henry Ford once said, “Life is a series of experiences, each one of which makes us bigger, even though sometimes it is hard to realize this.

Whether competing in the Olympics, fighting in the war, or simply getting over his alcohol addiction, Louie approached each challenge with determination which Hillenbrand showcases in telling Louie’s daring story.
Pathos is used to persuade the audience that funding is necessary for the future of a more equal society. Reeve also makes the analogy that the entire population is a family to further unify the people in his audience. Christopher Reeve uses this unity again with a former president when he says, “President Roosevelt showed us that a man who could barely lift himself out of a wheelchair could still lift this nation out of despair.” He uses this example to show the audience that with the right mindset and tools (in this case funding), that miracles have the ability to happen and that it is well worth the cost to perform them. Pathos is used to plant inspiration and evoke a strong sense of hope within the audience.
Thank you CTL for allowing me to continue my service to this great nation, community, and fellow individuals in crisis. Whether it is the war torn streets of Baghdad, or an individual suffering alone in the confines of their minds and phone screen, I am able to still reach out and make a difference. I know from first hand this experience is universal. It is the collective human consciousness and need of belonging that has allowed our civilization to flourish. As a veteran (Warrior) I am reminded of a great quote by author Steven Pressfield, “The return Warrior/Veteran may not realize it, but they have acquired an MBA in enduring adversity and a Ph.D. in resourcefulness, tenacity and the capacity for hard work.”
Having grown up an imposing man, despite earlier castration at the hands of Chinese soldiers in his youth and the fate to live life as a eunuch, Zheng He became a testament to both triumph and the unfathomable repulsiveness of human history.

The Great Gatsby is a great novel as it depicts uniquely human and American experiences and ideals, in so that the novel’s ideas still resonate with readers today. The Great Gatsby understands the intricate struggle citizens possess with their desire for wonder and fantasy, particularly in American society. As Gatsby had with Daisy, fantasies for the future are a universal experience. The search for wonder and fantasy occasionally leads to the point of self-destruction, of which Joshua Rothman in his New Yorker article “The Serious Superficiality of The Great Gatsby” states is “most appealing about ‘Gatsby’; its mood of witty hopelessness, of vivacious
Attributes of a hero have remained the same over time, which is shown through Greek heroes like Hercules demonstrating the same traits as modern heroes like Batman, Superman, or Wonder Woman. One of the traits Hercules and Batman share is their passion for becoming a hero. The audience can see this characteristic during the “I Can Go The Distance” song when Hercules proclaims, “Somehow I'll be strong, I know every mile will be worth my while, I would go most anywhere to find where I belong.” Similarly, the audience can see Batman's passion each time he drops whatever he is doing, changes into his elaborate costume, and risks his life to save the city of Gotham from villains like The Joker and Bane.
