She had taken in the fact and reconsidered it many times, but she still went through with it. She put her life out on the line and managed to save the 2,500 Jewish children from the Germans. Her decisions changed her life, and so many others along with it. Her co-workers were some people who 're lives were definitely changed when Irena asked them one very important question. Were they willing to put their lives in danger to save the lives of Jewish children, children who weren 't like them?
This statement spoken by Antigone not only shows her loyalty to her brother and to her family, and despite the consequences, but none of that matters if it is right and it is holy. Therefore, Antigone’s motive for what she did was in true loyalty and compassion for her brother and
In reviewing the likes of wartime films such as Kanal and Divide We Fall, the different and important roles that women have assumed can be seen. Women, despite whatever adverse conditions they are presented, are able to provide and support not only themselves, but others as well. In Divide We Fall, we see a wife named Marie, who’s empathy for a the runaway Jew ultimately helps to save this Jew’s life. Faced with a Nazi occupied Czechoslovakia, Marie and her husband, put their lives at risk by harboring a runaway Jew in their meat cellar. Ultimately Marie agrees to have a child with the Jewish man in an attempt to keep their home safe.
We do not have to have superpowers to be a hero. Who is more of a hero, a person with superpowers or a person who will stand up for what they believe in? It could just be a boy or girl that can be a hero by showing courage. A hero can also be a person who is selfless or brave. People do not have to go to combat or war to be a hero to the world.
Bravery is a privilege that comes with a responsibility to do what 's right, the courage to do what is right, and the responsibility of having the faith of trusting your life in the hands of others. Bravery is a responsibility of putting your life before others, not letting people get hold of your fear that 's deep down inside, and not letting little children have to worry whether or not they are going to wake up the next day. Bravery is a choice. Solders don 't have to go and put their life at risk for yours but they choose to do it anyway, therefore the soldiers ' don 't have to fight in order for us to have freedom so we can make laws and protect the states, and all the soldiers lives that were lost in wars for us and we never took a
This shows that she is selfless because she gave up getting a good place in the race to help someone. Debi Mazar also once said “A hero is someone selfless, who is generous in spirit, and who just tries to give back as much as possible to help” (Mazar). People who are selfless are people who put others before themselves, which is what really defines a hero. She also said “A hero to me is someone who saves people and who really deeply cares” (Mazar). Selfless people are considered heroes for their actions which is why it is one of the defining qualities of a hero.
The violins of hope are a symbol of survival in a way because they carry on their previous owner’s life and history. Similar to the Jews, Malala, a passive resister against Taliban, wanted her story to be heard. Malala supports young girl’s education in Pakistan, and she wanted her message and her story to be heard, so others would oppose the Taliban. The Jews could resist the Nazis by preserving their story while nonviolently defying
This shows that they risked themselves to be able to shelter a Jewish girl and a Jewish book, away from the Nazis. Serif and Stela also risked their lives. In my opinion all these examples shows how the Kamal’s expressed their kind values and intentions to be able to do this out of kindness. Brooks also uses the Albanian and Muslim community when talking about the traditional weddings and Serif and Stela prove that the beliefs and values that are said about a Muslim wedding are not always true. The Albanian language and beliefs are two things that saved a Jewish girl’s life and the actions that both the Kamal’s did for her risked their lives.
We end up simply content in our self righteousness that we know that something is wrong without caring enough to actually do something to lessen the problems we apparently care about. That’s what Sarah did initially, content to leave the matter in God’s hands until she realized God gave her two hands to help handle the matter herself (Kidd). She found barriers, yet she kept pushing forward to achieve equality for all (Kidd). She even realized when the people also fighting a similar cause were taking the wrong path in either the way they pursued their shared beliefs or how they dealt with her and her Nina (Kidd). That also seems to be a common problem in our day to day struggles.
When she sees her beloved grandmother’s face on a poster that accuses her of being “the wife of a filthy capitalist” and “an enemy of the people,” she becomes outraged. After her home being deemed an unsafe place to live in, she goes to live with DiDi at her father’s movie studio, but discovers that some of the violence shown at her old school was apparent there too. After someone reported Baba’s innocent comment, Moying’s life and family was torn apart yet again. Suddenly, Moying’s life had meaning again, as she finds sanctuary in education.
It 's absurd to think or label someone or something as perfect because it 's just not realistic and you can 't achieve perfection either. In order to become "perfect" we can 't make mistakes which all know is impossible simply because of the fact that we are human beings. It also helps her forgive her mother realizing that she isn 't that perfect image that she had drawn in her head
“Bravery is the capacity to perform properly even when scared half to death.” -Omar N. Bradley. Comparable to Rikki Tikki, you need to have bravery to do something for the ones you care for. The theme of the fictional story Rikki-tikki-tavi by Rudyard Kipling is strong companionship can give you the courage to do anything for the ones you love.

Do you know what type of heroes there are? There are many definitions for a hero. They can be realistic or non-realistic. In “Tough Alice’ She is a fantasy character she is in the story “Alice In Wonderland” except in ‘Tough Alice” she has obstacles to handle like the Jabberwook.

Quote: “The more I remembered the killings, the beatings, and intimidations, the more I worried what might possibly happen to me or my family if I joined the NAACP. But I knew I was going to join, anyway” (Ch. 20, pg. 269). This passage is significant because it demonstrates the substantial and terrifying risks taken by those who chose to join the early Civil Rights Movement in the south. Earlier in her life, Anne witnessed acts of bigotry, violence, and murder carried out against members of black activists organizations and anyone who mentioned these groups in public.
Thesis: When life is on the line, a lot of people will go back to animistic forms of dealing with situations. A sort of fight or flight response to the problem at hand, and this can go one of two ways. You act for your own well being, or the well being of others natures other calling. When this happens, people are seen as one of two things, you will be survivors or heroes. So it is no surprise that the "man in the water" became so famous, he chose that he was less important than others, he went into "hero" mode as I like to call it.
