Not because he was bragging about his achievements, but because he actually achieved something that the people could respect and stand behind. Quiet people are often the most powerful because they lead their people by examples instead of words. The majority of To Kill A Mockingbird’s characters are very inspirational characters by not only what they say, but also what they do, like when Dolphus Raymond acts like a drunk so the town has a reason for his actions. The same goes for Emma Watson. Although she’s in the news for movies or for UN business she tends to stay out of the spotlight.
If Atticus had lashed out at Mr. Ewell, the community between that town and those two groups of people would have been even more disturbed than before. When Atticus lost the trial, “Atticus was standing under the streetlight looking as though nothing had happened” (284). Atticus didn’t act out in front of the trial audience and didn’t start saying rash things about the trial and how it was wrong. Even though he knew the outcome was wrong, he didn’t attempt to make the situation worse. If something doesn’t go a certain way that is ideal in society, their initial thought is usually to argue about it.
Time after time, one person judges another. A majority of judgement is based on first sight. Dolphus Raymond, the thought to be town drunk, just has a different lifestyle than others and is trying to avoid stronger judgement by living a lie. Mr. Dubose, although an old, racist woman, is brave and courageous for the choices she made to live her life by her rules. Finally, Boo Radley, the one judged most of all, put aside the judgement of the town and sacrificed his life for the people in it.
She experiences the act of rape and tries to overcome the horrifying memory, but decides to stop talking to anyone for five years. McCandless and Angelou change their own identities to create better lifestyles for themselves throughout the two books. Chris McCandless walks alone in the wilderness to invent a new life for himself. His relationship with his family is different as he is closest to his sister, Carine. He feels that his parents are too controlling, and he wants to be more free.
Arthur Radley is misunderstood by Scout until she finally meets him, seeing that he is a nice man. She thinks he is nice because he saved her and Jem’s lives, and if he had been “evil”, he would not have helped them. He also gave them small gifts in a hole in a tree, which, at the time, was his only connection to them. “Before [Atticus] went inside the house, he stopped in front of Boo Radley. ‘Thank you for my children, Arthur,’ he said” (Lee
Arthur Radley, also known to Jem, Scout, and Dill as “Boo,” is a mysterious character. He’s the Finch’s neighbor and he never comes out of the house, though there are numerous rumors about him. Arthur raises curiosity in Jem and Scout and they try to communicate with him to understand why he stays in the house all the time, but they’re not successful. One day on their way home from school, Jem and Scout found a ring case in a tree. They found two old Indian-head coins inside that have been polished and taken good care of.
Boo was our neighbor. He gave us two soap dolls, a broken watch and chain, a pair of good luck pennies, and our lives. But Neighbors give in return. We never put back into the tree what we took out of it; we had given him nothing and it made me sad. (Lee 320).
After the bombings, Dresden was a doom town, it was hard to see its beautiful architecture that was said to be the prettiest in the world. Billy fought throughout the war and stayed by his country's side and this shows his strength. The overall gist of this story is not to show a weak man, but to show someone how the war can make you unstuck in time. Billy isn't able to comprehend what is real and what isn't. In Slaughterhouse-Five the death of thousands of people changed the perception negatively of
The first example is Boo Radley. In the novel, Boo Radley isn’t seen until the very end but we hear about him throughout the entire novel. The whole Radley family suffers social prejudice because Boo hasn't been seen in years, and people start making rumors of what happened. According to the rumors, he is a scary guy that went crazy a while ago. But at the end of the novel, we see that he is a kind man that has been shut up his entire life and doesn’t like being in the spotlight (both literally and metaphorically).
Another way Boo portrayed courage was, that he left his house. He had stayed in his house away from the public’s eye for many years. Yet he came out to save Scout and Jem. Boo seemed a crazy man, but proved to be a courageous hero. In conclusion Mrs. Dubose, Atticus Finch, and Boo (Arthur) Radley are three characters who demonstrated the theme of courage.
Marchers first went to the police department building and a man broke the window on the door of the building. After the marchers left the police department the marchers yet again shut down a intersection then proceeded to city hall, they were met by police and barred from entry. Then the march was led back to the starting location an shut down another intersection at Wisconsin Avenue and water street. Their goal was to let people know that black lives matter and that someone need to stand up to the dirty cops who get away with everything they do. The protest wasn’t a failure nor a big success but they did make people start to understand and see what we go through on an everyday bases and that when we shout “black lives matter”we aren’t just doing this to make us stand out more.
