When Bäumer returns home, he was unable to identify with memories of his youth nor understand the patriotic enthusiasm of the older generation. Chapter seven of “All Quiet on The Western Front” it was most apparent how war took away the souls of the lost generation and Paul. He was unable to comfortably adjust back to his pre-war lifestyle. Confirming his worries about his detachment and alienation from civilian life (All Quiet on The Western Front). Paul can no longer suppress the trauma he faced on the front.
Martin Luther King Jr. and Lyndon B. Johnson were two exceptional men who made this country superior in the idea of desegregation. King refrained from abandoning his neighbors in the reality of injustice. King conducted marches from place to place to exude nonviolent protests, determined to abolish the unjust approach towards African Americans. President Johnson would soon realize that the parade of African Americans would not relinquish their goal until the head of state put forth his input and supported them, allowing them to register to vote. With President Johnson’s speech, he recognizes to the public how unjust African Americans were being treated and that the racial actions at the time should have been put to an end.
This thereby also supports him saying to treat people as you would want to be treated. Within the speech, Kennedy described this nation to be "founded on the principle that all men are created equal;" however, this applied to everyone but African American community. By Kennedy’s orders to send the National Guard he showed his beliefs, feelings, and seriousness of equal opportunity and equal education for blacks to enter any school or to do what any other citizen of America
Half way through A Long Way Gone Ishmael is sent to a rehabilitation center where he was given food, shelter and care and a safe place to sleep. But even though Ishmael had left the war; the war didn’t leave him. Revenge is never the answer relates to this because, learning how to forgive himself was a war of its own. Ishmael’s desperate quest for revenge caused him to commit many horrible actions. Ishmael’s childhood will forever be haunted by memories of the war, memories he can’t run from.
Our whole lives growing up we are told to follow the “Golden Rule”. This rule is defined as to treat someone the way you want to be treated. In the book To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee, Atticus Finch a lawyer in a town called Maycomb in Alabama tries his best to be a role model for his two children. In the quiet town of Maycomb Atticus is given the job to defend a black man named Tom Robinson. Atticus wants to teach his kids Jem and Scout life lessons at an early age so they grow up as respectable people.
Death will come at some point in everyone 's lives, whether it be in battle or just from age. What do you say in a speech where many men were lost? Words can not explain what 50000 lives were, thats many people and it is too difficult to expand on that. Lincoln states,”a final resting place for those who here gave their lives that that nation might live.”(page 539) It is too hard to have a barrial for all of the men that lost their lives. Due to this they just made the ground a resting place, this was about the only thing that he could do with these lives.
Next Martin Luther King’s speech told people to not give up and let whites always be considered better than Negros but instead to continue to try to win the fight for freedom. He also says in his speech ‘I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.” this too is an emotional appeal it makes people think of their own children and how they would want them to be
After his second time falling into the weeds, that's when I knew that Mulcahy no longer wanted to fight. So he turned the war over to his brethren and let them fight instead. March writes(pg.122),“I lay back in the weeds again.,___”I’ll never know how war comes out”. So private Mulcahy committed suicide due to his PTSD. However, if a soldier was mentally healthy, the soldier would be proud to finish off war no matter the condition they were in.
This is the feeling I hope to convey to you in this message. He started off with a promise. Not a direct one, but one that gave me a sense of hope for the future. There he was, a white man, stating that his convictions towards black discrimination will not falter, and that he believed in his heart of hearts that his people should not be enslaving ours. If one man can do that, why can’t everybody?
(Quoted from Basler in Holzer 10) Although this poem was not publicized because, as Holzer states, “ridicule and recrimination; [sic] had no place in the final Gettysburg Address” (135), traces of the Gettysburg Address are within it. Lincoln, among others, considered Philadelphia “the cradle of liberty”. If Gettysburg would have had a different outcome (a real possibility at the battle’s dawn) Philadelphia would have been in ruins and the Confederate nation would have held a separate government unopposed. The city was so paramount to Lincoln’s cause that he stated, “I would rather be assonated on the spot than to surrender it”. Holzer argues; [Lincoln] was not only talking about offering his life to save a landmark building but also to preserve the ideas that had been ratified there to form the core belief system of American Independence: what Lincoln in 1861 called ‘the spirit that animated our fathers’ and later canonically redefined at Gettysburg as our ‘new birth of freedom’.
