Thus, when O’Brien mentions in the quote, valor was not the point, he is trying to explain to the reader that the men went like it was a job they had to do, not a random act of courage that willed them to proceed.

Just like Gandhi made a movement without violence, Atticus Finch did as well. This man didn’t hurt a single Negro or a white person when he wanted to show that race meant nothing in the times before the court trial. When someone made prejudice remarks, he didn’t react in ferocious way, but instead, he kept it all in his mind, building up thoughts to a conclusion. According to BBC.co.uk/ethics, “The aim of non-violent conflict(or ahimsa) is to convert your opponent; to win over their mind and heart and persuade them that your point of view is right.” Atticus tried to win over the mind and heart of the jury (white farmers) with a very convincing testimony to change their point of view and to see Tom Robinson as a man, not a colored man. In the movie The Help, Skeeter wants to write an article about what it’s like to be a black maid.

Kareem was very clear that he did not want any special treatments or draw attention in his workplace due to his Muslim practices. As mentioned earlier the main individual with whom he imparted his practices to be his colleague Kathy, whom he turned out to have a great rapport with. Some of Kareem’s actions did not help his situation, although he didn 't want to draw attention he unintentionally was.

Kareem did become aware that his coworkers and leadership team were observing him and didn 't understand the reason to why he was leaving his desk.
