Even when people doubted him and the situation seemed unachievable, Ibrahima stayed determined and continued (125). For months, Ibrahima had gone to different cities along with various organizations to ask for money, to guide him to the $8,500 that Thomas demanded, in order to get Ibrahima’s children and grandchildren out of being a slave (135,143). This battle he is fighting, was not a battle for him as a soldier, but a battle as a caring grandfather or father. His bravery as a soldier along with the love he held as a parent did not let Ibrahima to give up the fight for his family’s freedom. He pressed for his children’s freedom up to his dying breath, even though he was not victorious in freeing his grandchildren, after his death, his children were finally granted their freedom (186-187) After thirty years of enslaved labor, Ibrahima encountered Marschalk, who believed Ibrahima was of royal descent, a Moor (pg.

He coaxed them to help do work, and sometimes had to yell. But overall, those boys who had been through terrible times just like him, arrived to a new place in a new, safer country.
Dr. Waldo said, “Heartily wish myself at home, my skin and eyes are almost spoil’d with continual smoke.” Dr. Waldo wants to go home too and he is the doctor so he should probably be one of the most loyal soldiers to Washington.

(Paine 153) It is not like the summer soldiers did not help fight in the war and I also served my nine month enlistment. “But he who stands now, deserves the love and thanks of man and women.” (Paine 153) I stand now and served my time so even though I am not re-enlisting I still deserve thanks. “There were no beds, just straw on the mud floor.
He gets saved by the Americans, where they bring him to America, which causes him to feel proud that he has survived. On page 256, Yanek says, “I stepped on board the train and didn't look back.

Amir realized his mistake and goes back to Afghanistan to get Hassan 's son, Sohrab. It took a long time for him to explain to people why he wanted to take that fragile Hazara boy to United States with him, but he was supported by many people who never thought Hazaras as a low caste. Amir had risked his life when he went into the hands of the Taliban to rescue Sohrab. Just like him, Hans Hubermann in " The Book Thief" aided a Jew while a March to the concentration camps.

Similarly, in Life is Beautiful, Joshua begins to give up on the game that his father has created for him. Guido, knowing that losing faith could kill people, did everything he could to assure his son that it was almost over. He convinced Joshua that he needed to push just a little harder in order to win and get his tank.
After reading the novel, I researched the real stories of victims and I was inspired by their sense of hope. Despite almost a decade in captivity, they never gave up on returning home and returning their loved ones. Every day we walk around holding grudges for things that happened weeks even years ago; these people were tortured and watched their families killed and not once did they speak of any hatred towards their capturer’s. Instead, they showed love. They prayed for their souls to
They were also sent to Evin Prison, where they spent two months in solitary confinement. Farhadov revealed that he had dreamt twice about being arrested. While he was confined in his cell, he recalled the dream but he gained strength to endure the ordeal when God impressed hope upon him through Psalm 2, which promises the nations as their inheritance.

For example, when Jem displaced his pants in a hurry to escape the Radley Place, he went back to retrieve it that night, as he did not want to disappoint Atticus. He said: “Atticus ain’t ever whipped me since I can remember. I wanta keep it that way”(Lee75), this shows Jem’s perseverance to perform actions that will benefit him in a positive aspect. Scout later explained: “Jem stayed moody and silent for a week. As Atticus had once advised me to do, I tried to climb into Jem’s skin and walk around in it: if I had gone alone to the Radley Place at two in the morning, my funeral would have been held the next afternoon” (Lee 77).
What I also liked is how the story still continues years after years just not for like a day or month. A Quote that I admire in Chapter 3 stated “You never really understand a person until you consider things from his point of view…Until you climb into his skin and walk around in it”. In the end of Chapter 29-30 this is when Scout learned the valuable lesson her father taught her because once their attacker was pulled away from them that night she realized it was Mr. Arthur or “Boo Radley”. A Man that has never been seen since he was young nor been out of the house, helping two young children from a Racist, Old, Caucasian man. At the beginning of this novel they pictured Mr. Arthur as an old, mean, eating animal being but now since they have really seen him he’s just a hero and caring
