Probably because he was a hood, he killed a young boy, and he stole from convenience stores. But even though he may have done those things at the beginning of the story by the end he regretted all of it and wished he had more time to go back and fix it and be a better person. To be a hero you must be able to be brave even if you’re facing danger straight in the face. You must also be willing to make sacrifice even if you’re sure you’ll die. So in conclusion Johnny Cade is the hero of The Outsiders because he died because he went into a burning building to save the
He has a friendly but paranoid demeanor to his personality, and he is loved by his second 'family ', which is just Greasers. Last but not least, Dallas or 'Dally ' Winston. He is a typical bad boy in the novel, and most young adults or girls like guys like him because he 's wild and very flirtatious. He 's a tuff guy with a lot of pent up anger, but he rarely takes it out on his buddies unless they made him angry. People may like other characters in The Outsiders, but these three boys seemed to be liked the most for their different personalities.
I believe this letter will keep the bond between these three characters forever strong, and supportive of each other. Ponyboy also realizes that both brothers are equally cared for by Darry, in the beginning of the book Ponyboy felt he never earned the same respect as Soda, but the letter changed that. The quote "You hurt the ones you love the most" definitely relates to the relationship of Darry and Ponyboy. In my opinion you could see a different side of Ponyboy after he read the letter, there was almost a sence of light, and happiness I 've never seen, especially during a crisis. A couple days later the two brothers meet eye to eye, Darry immediately had tears rolling down his face, my heart sank reading this.
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
However, Jim Jones would not go like the rest so he had someone shoot him in the head. If he was not going to ever get out of Jonestown alive then nobody would. That attitude was selfish and horrific. The people of Jonestown did not have a choice on whether or not to drink the poison. Some of his people were so loyal to him that they did not think twice about it, while others could not escape so they were forced to kill themselves against their own will.
"He alone talked easily. He discussed the bombing of Central Europe... Phineas was very happy; sour and stern Mr. Patch- Withers had been given a good laugh for once, and he had done it! He broke into the charmed, thoughtless grin of a man fulfilled.He had gotten away with everything.He soon was out of trouble and was adored by the principle" (Knowles p.10-11). He also did this to his other teachers, and thats why all his teachers like him. Finny can talk he way out of trouble and talk about something else he will o longer get in big trouble.
He could have done great things in his life instead of stealing and being rude. But he chose not too. Sadly, after all the mess happened when Johnny died, he decided to go back to robbing. Later that day he was chased down by the cops all the way back to his house. He was sad and ready to die.
I love the gang and everyone in the gang because we all stick up for each other. If everyone in the gang robbed stores like Dally did all of us would be in jail but not my kid brothers they would be in a boys home and I would never see them again because robbing stores is illegal. I believe that Johnny used self defense because my kid brother Ponyboy was going to be drowned. If Johnny would not have killed Bob the rumble would be harder with one less man on are side and 2 more men on their side. If I lose one more family member then I do not know what I would do.
If Crito helps him escape, he will earn a bad reputation as well. If his friends help him escape, they would be putting themselves in danger of being prosecuted and losing their money. His children would be known to have a father who's on the run because he broke the law and they would be left alone if he escapes to another city. They would be left alone even if he stays in jail and faces his execution, but it is better if they stay in Athens with people they know. If he escapes to another city, they will view him as a criminal and if his children came with him they would be viewed as foreigners.
I’ll shoot him in the guts. Come on, you guys. This is an even stronger reason why George did the right thing by killing Lennie. Lennie was a kind hearted fellow but he always ended up hurting somebody or killing something, and that’s why George had to do what he did. In the book Lennie killed many mice, a dog, and even a girl at the end, it may have been and accident but it was the fact that he is dangerous.
So this makes George be the one has to give Lennie a quick and swift kill. George kills Lennie also because he doesn 't want to be on the run like he has most of the time been. So Lennie is stressing on George 's life but George feels to guilty to have him run, because he couldn 't live on his own. So George has to kill Lennie because he has no other choice for Lennie 's future. This was the best choice for Lennie in George 's mind.
Dally robbed stores, jumped people, did what he wanted whenever he wanted. He didn’t care, after finding out that johnny has died he goes crazy and robs a store. As he is running out he gets shot in his lower abdomen but still runs off. He calls Pony, Steve, Two-bit, Darry, and Soda, when they get to the vacant lot where he was surrounded by policemen, he pulled out an unloaded gun, he wanted to die that 's why he did it, he was gunned down by the police. Dally got what he wanted and dying was what he wanted after Johnny died, he died a hoodlum… ‘“Dally didn 't die a hero, he died violent, violent, and desperate.
First, Johnny is with Ponyboy telling him that he might commit suicide if there is more fights. Johnny cries out, “I’ll kill myself or something” (47). Johnny knows that greasers and the socs will still clash, and he tells Ponyboy in a different way not to fight or else he might kill himself. In a like manner, Dally wants to die after Johnny dies because Johnny is the only thing he loved, and he is gone forever. Ponyboy utters, “I knew he would be dead because Dallas Winston wanted to be dead and he always got what he wanted” (154).
Her father was more of an intense version of my own father. In our family I am always my father’s favorite, the one that stood by him through everything. We are playful together and he wants to give me everything even when he can’t. He always wants to be the one to take care of me not the other way around and he’s extremely stubborn, cocky and loves talking about himself. He also always loved my mother even though when they were still married they would fight constantly and the amount of beers he can throw back can always amaze me, but other than that he is mostly the good parts of Rex Walls.
Walter never wanted to kill emilio and Krazy-8 but he did it out of self defense since they pulled guns out on jesse and walter and they had to do something about it. when jesse and walter lock Krazy-8 in the basement they flip a coin to see who kills him and walter does not want to kill the man but he knows if he doesn 't that krazy-8 will probably come back and kill walter and his family so it 's a life or death situation for him so he needed to make a decision but he almost let him go if Krazy-8 wouldn 't have had a knife he probably would have been free to go but since he wanted to try and kill walter he had to end Krazy-8’s life. his moral choices and decisions were a hardship for him so some of his choices were overall evil and he tries to make the right decisions but he does what really has to be done in order to keep him and his
