It recounts the screams of burning workers, while onlookers watched as they jump to their death. The firemen used safety nets to save the workers jumping to their death, but the nets broke. The firemen used hose, but it could only reach the 6th floor. Firemen tried to use ladders to save the girls but it could only reach the 7th floor: “They saw the last ladder lifted and pushed into place. They saw that it reached only the seventh floor” (The New York World, 75).
In page 56 it states “ I’m drowning, I thought, they’ve gone too far …” and “ I killed him,” he said slowly. “I killed that boy.” This shows where Johnny saved Ponyboy from drowning. Johnny is also a hero when he helped get the little kids get out of the church that was on fire. In the text it states “ He looked over his shoulder and saw that the door was blocked by the flames, then pushed open the window and tossed out the nearest kid.” This is where it shows that Johnny is a hero when saved the little kids from the
Jack decided killing is a higher priority than getting off the island, he shows that when he says, “Rescue? Yes, of course!All the same, I’d like to catch a pig first” (53).

He succeeded in sparing the kid yet was struck and slaughtered by the train. The court held that when a rescuer endeavors to spare somebody in up and coming hazard, he may accept uncommon dangers or perform risky acts without being contributorily
Johnny Cade shows bravery in the fact that he was brave enough to fight the socs even after he got mugged by them. Also while he was at the drive he stood up for Cherry and Marcia after Dally was messing with them. He also ran into a burning building to save a group of kids from certain death. In the The Outsiders Johnny was willing to sacrifice himself getting killed by the socs to keep Ponyboy from being drowned by starting a fight with them. Then later he risks being put in jail so that Ponyboy doesn’t have to be in hiding for the rest of his life.
The first time we see this is after Johnny and Ponyboy arrive fresh from the murder to seek Dally’s help. He gives them dry clothes, a loaded gun, fifty dollars, and tells them a location to hide in. He gave them the essentials they need even though he could have gone to jail. Darry would have even beat up Dally to death for helping them escape town and giving them a gun and money. According to Ponyboy, “...he [Dally] got drunk, he rode in rodeos, lied, cheated, stole, rolled drunks, jumped small kids—he did everything.” (1.48) After Johnny died, Dally makes an enormous sacrifice that took away his life.
The first ethical theory is Utilitarianism. Utilitarianism is based on actions that show right from wrong. In the story the Utilitarianism, is choosing which would benefit the most to the most people. This theory would conclude that it was the best choice to take Henrietta Lack’s cells and distribute them all over like they did in the story. The utilitarianism would benefit much more on the decision that the doctor made then a negative decision, which is based on consequences.
This YouTube video presents with a terrifying moral dilemma. Scenario one introduced the trolley problem as if I was a rail yard worker in control of a lever that can switch the track. When suddenly comes, a runaway trolley barreling down the track heading towards five people who are completely unaware of the runaway trolley. If this trolley continues this track all five people would be killed. I have the option of pulling the lever allowing the trolley to switch tracks and save of five people from their impending doom.
Even still, Lennie was much more likely to die from Curley’s lynch mob had George not shot him first. As evidenced by the events of Chapter 6, Curley’s men were able to independently get near Lennie, and were likely to approach him even without George as the “shouts of men” got louder and louder. If Lennie was killed by Curley, he would have been shot in the guts, and died painfully as he bled out. Only George, by retelling his dreams about the farm, could spare Lennie from such a fate, and let him die as he lived: blissfully ignorant. Through sparing him the anguish that awaited his friend, George is justified in his
Well, there are many strategies on attempting a method to stopping parts of the cycle. One of those methods could be acceptance and understanding. A possible way to apply the method of acceptance and understanding to the cycle of violence is to understand where people are coming from. To put into logical reasoning, if we could all understand, not all of it but part of it, why someone is like something then we can get ourselves to stop violence and figure out acceptance for each other. This rule could apply to The Outsiders if the greasers accepted that the Socs just ended up to be the rich side kids and be spoiled the greasers would be able to understand their problem and may even help ending up fixing the problem.
