A quote from the article above States " And that 's when it occurred to me: I don 't know what happened to my shelf-full of participation trophies. If they 'd been important to me or my mom — markers, as Perez says — I would presumably know where they are. " trophies that are not earned mean absolutely nothing.
He went against the most powerful force in his country, the government. He knew that he would not win, as he says, “I hope that I will be the last victim…[and to] inspire others to do the same”. He says that he didn’t not expect to win, but only to inspire others. In other words, he was courageous enough to have sacrificed himself in order to get his voice heard.

The book seems to have an underlying theme based on the old saying “survival of the fittest.” ‘Fittest’ can imply many things, but it shows that only the most physically fit will have a better chance of surviving. The word itself has a harsh tone to it, making it seem that to survive you must be able to do whatever it takes to do, even kill someone to ensure your survival. Even though ‘of’ is just a short word in the sentence, it has a big impact to it.
“The Hero doesn’t Get the Reward; the Hero Pays the Price” (anon). One of the heroes who paid the dear price was Odysseus, a hero who fought in The Trojan War.

Going home is basically dying for Patrick Henry. For him it is give me liberty or kill me. For me it feels the same but it’s not literal, Go Hard or Go Home.
However, Brutus continually feels the need to defend his actions and justify his crime. If he is truly confident in his deed, he would not stammer to find justifications. Yet, Brutus may not want power, he may really want justice. In his mind, murdering Caesar, was the only route to go.
Dr. Jarrod Spencer claims that it might prove to be very difficult for the players to follow all the rules while in the game. However, just like the players focus on playing and trying their best to win, they should also try their best to not attack fellow players. Fans should also not tolerate this behavior too.

Lady Macbeth says, “But screw your courage to the sticking-place, and we’ll not fail” (I.vii.). She is telling Macbeth that if he is courageous then they will not fail. He is concerned that it will be the servants who catch him of this crime, but Lady Macbeth tweaks the plan to make Macbeth feel better. She tells him she will get the guards so drunk that they will not have any memory.
Partial Success "We train our commanders the way we do because that's what it takes – they have to think in certain ways, they can't be distracted by a lot of things, so we isolate them. You. Keep you separate. And it works. But it's so easy, when you never meet people, when you never know the Earth itself, when you live with metal walls keeping out the cold of space, it's easy to forget why Earth is worth saving.
In the novel Ender’s Game, by Orson Scott Card, he explores a world in which lies and manipulation are a positive idea. The main character, Ender Wiggin, is a six-year-old boy who is recruited into a battle school known as the International Fleet. This battle school was presented to the children as a place where they can train to protect Earth from an alien life form known as buggers. The students soon learn the real reason they are there. Ender in particular begins to figure out that the adults are the enemies as they have continued to lie in order to achieve cooperation.
This first encounter shows that Ender Wiggin is capable of looking at situations in an entirely different perspective. Instead looking at the situation as one battle that he has to win, Ender decides he must end a cycle of abusive behavior so that he can win the war once in for all. This is very clever of Ender.
