He talks about how if we don't start standing up for our freedom as a nation the British will take it away from us and we would have wished we did something about it. “Not a place upon earth might be so happy as America” (Paine, paragraph 9). America shouldn't stand to take abuse from Britain because we are built with freedom and strong courageous people. When stating this by Thomas Paine, the people would have gotten excited and ready to go and fight because they have fought for their freedom before and they aren't afraid to do it again. Paine also states that the colonists should end it all with perseverance and pride so we don't look like cowards.

President William Taft did not favor women 's suffrage and that it’s clear for everyone.
Meeting Homer Barron was her biggest change from her old self, because her father did not allow her be in any relationships, but she went out in public with Homer “driving in the yellow-wheeled buggy and the matched team of bays from the livery stable” (454). Consequently, this was only because she was living in her own reality and believed that Homer would be the one to marry her. Homer was “not a marrying man” (454) and would not marry Emily, but she refused to accept the denial of marriage from him, so she killed him to keep him with her forever. She stayed within her house to keep herself in the Old South. When she told the men to see Colonel Sartoris, she was not aware that “Colonel Sartoris had been dead for almost ten years” (452) at that point.
Although there are things in common, one thing that separates the two articles is the character’s actions. In I Escaped a Violent Gang, Ana takes a big risk in telling the truth, meanwhile, in Making Sarah Cry, the risk is only getting bullied more for things they can’t help. The theme poem Making Sarah Cry is overcoming obstacles. Sarah was teased for many things, like being slow and not as smart. “...She never tried to hide.

These women would prefer to join the conflict that separated state and community rather than being its victims. Thus, their loyalties to husbands and sons, and strong determination of protecting their own property prompted them to disregard the female’s conventional behaviors. Bynum writes “woman have held their own very well on the “front line” against encroaching militia officers send to disloyal regions of the state to arrest deserters and evaders of the Confederate army.” Bynum emphasized the importance of women’s positions in evading the militia.

It was known by the government that the best way to persuade women into aiding the war effort was to appeal to their emotions; women were angry that their loved ones were forced to go off to war to partake in a fight that was believed America had no need to be in. Yet, women were expected to set aside their personal beliefs to insure that America could still make further advancements without its men. However, women still complied because they knew the responsibility laid with them to keep the nation running. Still, much of propaganda had a purpose to motivate women to lend a helping hand in the war. As Susan Mathis said, “The patriotic appeal had two aspects… ‘do your part’... ‘a soldier may die if you don’t do your part’...” (Mathis).
Even in death, they could not be removed from the minds of those fighting, and their spirit and honor has lived on. The Mirabal sisters did what others dreaded to do; they overcame their fear, influenced others, and left behind a legacy that would last for years. Without the bravery of the girls, it is possible Latin America might still be ruled by dictatorship. They each became a part of the rebellious fire that would consume the injustice in the Dominican Republic and eventually all of Latin America; and the fire burned because the Mirabal sisters were courageous enough to stand up for what they believed
