Proctor knew that by confessing, it would only make the court look better but by not confessing, the court would hang him. Proctor begs to Judge Danforth, “How may I live without my name? I have given you my soul; leave me my name!”(132). Proctor knows that if he signs the confession, there will be a paper about it in the church door. Proctor values his life but, he does not want to be remembered as a liar who is willing to do whatever it takes for his own life.
In the book Where Men Win Glory, Pat Tillman had an inherent sense of goodness. He was an expert football player that gave up his career to join the army. He had many reasons why he decided to dedicate himself to the protection of our country. He was always trying to better himself—intellectually, morally, and physically (p 98). He had an inherent sense that he could improve himself and be good but then even get better.
He believed that they would all turn out the same and he did not want that for himself or Jefferson, but he knew deep down that they were just as stuck as every other person of colour. Grant did not want Jefferson to be like him and the rest of them, he wanted Jefferson to prove them wrong; prove to them that he was so much more of what they made of him by walking to that chair with his chin held high and his shoulders as straight as ever. However, Grant did not attend Jefferson’s execution. Maybe it was because he didn’t want to be seen as a failure if ever Jefferson decided to be what was said of him during his execution. Maybe he was too afraid of breaking down as Jefferson walked toward the chair alone.
For example, if my Parents tell me I am not allowed to go somewhere or do something, I won’t do it because I know they care for my safety. One time there was a concert happening in Pittsburgh that I really wanted to go to, but my dad didn’t want me to go. He felt it was unsafe because at the time there was a lot of terroristic crimes happening at concerts and public places. Being strong-willed, stubborn, and loyal are all characteristics that I share with Giles Corey. We would do anything for our loved ones and principles even if it comes at a great cost.
Yet, his body is held captive in a hospital room that serves as a prison. He is closed off from the public because the leaders who rally war do not want the world to see the affects of war on servicemen. Trumbo reveals this by, “He was the future he was a perfect picture of the future and they were afraid to let anyone see what the future was like” (Trumbo 240-241). From Trumbo’s perspective, the government officials who rally war cover up the ugliness of war and the scars that it leaves on people’s lives. Through their use of propaganda and deception they make war into the cheap plastic rings that people buy in quarter
He does not care for his own well-being if it means that he can help others. In the comic books, after the government wants to “tighten the reins” on him so that he works exclusively under their orders. Cap refuses to abandon his belief that he is meant to protect and represent the people of America and not the faceless government. Finally, Captain America ultimately sacrifices his life to protect the life of another. After Civil War (where Cap is fighting against Iron Man), Cap is shot point blank and his last words are asking if the crowd is
Everyone is supposed to stand up and put their right hand over their heart when the Star Spangled Banner is sung or played to show respect for our soldiers, but some football teams are not in this case. This issue with standing up for the Star Spangled Banner, goes along with the issue of the College or University Football Players not standing up for the loved ones that died fighting for their freedoms and rights. Everyone should just stop going to the football games for these teams that are doing it, making the Pro football players getting less and less money as people stop coming, because they are showing disrespect to the soldiers that fought for their rights and without soldiers, the football players wouldn’t be playing. Without soldiers fighting for our rights and taking risks, of possibly death or injury, our community or population of people in the United States would go down because the world would be chaos and everyone will go around killing each other. No one said fighting for your freedom would be easy.
This took so long dude, and i got rolled by my mom last night haha. As much as he was devastated by decision the clan elders made with Ikemefuna, he didn’t want to show anyone that he was weakened by this choice of Ikemefuna to die. The elders to him that he didn’t have to be apart of killing Ikemefuna, but he declined and went with the others to kill him. He did this because he wanted to show everyone that he could lead the clan and that he would make any decisions by emotion. AKA he didn’t want to be called a pussy.
Colin Kaepernick, the quarterback of the San-Francisco 49ers, chose not to stand for the National Anthem at a recent National Football League game. Instead, he decided to express his unhappiness with the way African Americans are being treated by police, by kneeling to the ground. This was his form of protest and attempt to convey his message about how he felt. Kaepernick does have the right to not stand for the National Anthem, however, it is disrespectful. People fight for our freedom, so why disrespect those men and women and an NFL game was not the right time or place to hold his protest.
Both men were fighting in the civil war, although one was a president and the other was a writer,teacher, and a former slave. While Lincoln was living a wealthy white man lifestyle, Douglass was living as a low class person who was involved in the civil war. In addition, Abraham had great power and a bigger voice, unlike Frederick who had no power and no voice at all. In “White House Funeral Sermon for Abraham Lincoln”, the author described Lincoln as a”beloved President.” I think he said this about Lincoln because he believed no will get close of making a change like Lincoln.In”Frederick Douglass”, the author described Douglass as” This man,superb in love and logic, this man shall be remebered.” I think this is true because what Douglass did back then has a huge affect on our life today. These two men from history of the United States acted heroically in their century, and we still respect and revere their actions today, almost 200 years
Therefore, he didn’t get kicked out of the league because he wasn’t good enough, but for sitting down during the national anthem. In today’s modern NFL, many players take a knee during the national anthem. My question is why didn’t they get kicked out of the league like Collin Kapernick? Our president, Donald Trump states that, “NFL owners should fire players who
Expect guys like Lee to get plenty of reps in the current system for about a week or so. Preparation for the actual game likely won’t start until about seven days out. For the folks concerned about a loss, does it really matter? If you’re disgusted with a 5-7 record and Nebraska loses its bowl game, are you really going to squeeze a little extra hate out of your AngstOrange®? If you’re in this state of mind, Riley can’t win, so you really shouldn’t care about the outcome, correct?
Making a Great Civil War General The age old question of what makes a great Civil War General is not an easy one to ask.. I don’t want to address the reasons why or the causes of the Civil War because depending on your geographical location they tend to lean in favor of our statehood and education in where you grew up from. In my opinion, Generals are not made in a class room environment. They are taught by experience in the battle fields where enlisted men are sent to defend and fight to the death. This leadership and trust in the General is earned only by blood from his troops.
Antigone should be allowed to bury Polyneices because her beliefs say the deceased should be buried. King Creon even buried Eteocles but not Polyneices because he was a traitor. They both died so they should both be buried in honor of their religions. Government shouldn’t intervene with their peoples religion or anybody 's religion because all humans should be able to have their own beliefs. What happens in their life doesn’t change their beliefs.
