But, she was intimidated when Jules told her mom that she was playing for the girls’ soccer team as she gave a petrified look on her face. When Jess was about to give up on soccer to start participating in the traditional Indian customs to associate with her sister’s wedding, she was very displeased and uncomfortable. She did not complained about her dislikes, but it is very obvious that her non-verbal expressions shown everyone that she would rather be playing soccer. She sighed, does not make eye contact with her fellow groups and relatives, she even crossed her arms in a defensive way to avoid being communicating with them and stands far away since she isn’t feeling a strong connection to her ties of her families. It displays a one-to-few of communication techniques because Jules and Jess had an argument over their relationship with the coach named, Joe, since Jules told Jess that he was off-limits because Jules had her eyes on her but she was mistaken that Joe and Jess were kissing.
In The Outsiders, after Johnny had killed Bob, Ponyboy and Johnny had to go on the run because they didn’t want to be caught, but Johnny says later on that he doesn’t want Ponyboy to have to live this life, and he is willing to turn himself into the police. Johnny couldn’t gain anything from this, and is willing to sacrifice the rest of his life because he doesn’t think it’s fair that Ponyboy has to live his life in hiding and away from his family. In the text, it says, “Johnny nodded. ‘I 'm sure. It ain 't fair for Ponyboy to have to stay up in that church with Darry and Soda worryin ' about him all the time.’” Johnny decided that he was going to turn himself in to the police because he 'd rather face the consequence than force Ponyboy to face the hardships of living on the run with him.

To top it off, he deceived the officers to conceal his felony.

In addition, Atticus went against his moral code and principles he had always upheld before, especially in the Tom Robinson trial. Now, Atticus is faced with the decision of abiding by the law or breaking it in order to do the right thing. He knew that incarcerating a man, as withdrawn and solitary as Arthur would have been unforgivable. Especially, after Arthur had performed a great deed by saving his children 's life. He knew that exposing him would be an awful way of repaying him; it would have been like "shooting a mockingbird."

Andy Dufresne decided to tunnel out of Shawshank prison and escape with the wardens money, because he was locked up for something he did not do, Andy knew that he was not getting out, not if the warden could help it. Andy knew he had to do something, he knew what he was going to do the night he engraved his name on the wall, he knew that he was innocent and that he had to give himself the freedom that was wrongfully taken from him. This is how Andy deals with the death of his freedom, he escapes and takes the wardens money to give himself his freedom. If I were in a similar situation to Andy, I would tunnel out of Shawshank if I knew I was innocent and I would take the wardens money. I would do this because free people should not be treated like guilty ones, and if you are in a situation where they will keep you locked up no matter what you have to do what you have to do in order to free
After Bob Ewell, the prosecutor of Tom Robinson, attacks the children and dies in the attempt, Atticus refuses to cover it up because he, “‘Don’t want him growing up with a whisper about him, I don’t want anybody saying, [...] Sooner we get this over with the better’” (Lee 366). Atticus would not let the local sheriff say that Jem did not kill Bob Ewell because he thought that Jem did at the time, and wants his kids to know that they should be treated like the rest of the community. Before that, when Atticus was defending Tom Robinson, he was telling the jury that the opposition had lied because they were, “‘confident that you gentlemen would go along with them on the assumption—the evil assumption—that all Negroes lie, that all Negroes are basically immoral beings, that all Negro men are not to be trusted around our women’” (Lee 273). Even though Scout and Jem were not supposed to be there, they learn how racism could kill an innocent man, and through that learn why Atticus had constantly reminded them of why equality is so important. With them learning about equality, they also learn about the town’s racism and how it should not be included in their definition of a person, another mini-lesson taught by Atticus to instruct his kids about

Furthermore, Mary put herself in a life threatening situation while helping John find his father even though it wasn 't her own father because she wanted be there for his friend and help him along the way. For instance, As Iain Lawrence points out, "The characters wanted to stop the wreckers from taking away the lives of innocent people and prevent an approaching ship from getting wrecked into the shore so while John was facing Caleb Stratton and Jeremy Haines trying to put out the false beacon, Simon Mawgan scared away the wreckers by pretending to be a corpse light, and John 's father drove away the wreckers."
