Andy died wishing he was seen as the individual person he was, not just a Royal. He wanted to be recognized as a person who had hopes, dreams and fears too. Sadly, although he tried to push away his past as a Royal, his life of living for it was too strong and not many thought of him as Andy after he died, most saw him as a Royal. It makes us think, how to we want to be remembered when we die? Do you want to be remembered as part of a group, or do you want to be remembered as the unique and wonderful person God created you to
This conflict was a struggle for Equality since he wanted to help his brothers however when they denied his help he concluded that they are wrong and are not worth the effort.

. Darry has never really gotten over not going to college” (Hinton 109). Basically, anybody would choose to finish a career over a more strenuous life of arduous occupations. Of course, Darry would have chosen college over two jobs, but because of his compassion towards the gang, he would choose them over anything. Not only did the gang prevent him from finishing his studies, but from overall becoming a high-class man; as Ponyboy had announced to the rest of his
Mccandless sense of self confidence while trying to find his identity helped him to progress in life, but was also his greatest downfall; Into the Wild demonstrates self confidence as not an unacceptable trait to have, but the significance of the negative or positive effects it can possess. Confidence played a big role in Mccandless life, so much that he created relationships with his family and other people that caused him to go on his adventures. Throughout this book Mccandless expresses his hate towards his parents. When he was old enough to realize that his dad had cheated on his mom this particular aspect changed him. He wanted nothing to do with his parents.
His parents expected great expectations from him. He was a smart guy, he graduated a University but that 's only because his parents wanted something great for his life. But what his parents wanted him to become wasn 't what he wanted to be. McCandless didn 't want to be successful nor have all the money in the world. McCandless states that money doesn 't buy happiness, I agree but disagree you can have all the money in the world and be happy about that but what about love, you can 't buy happiness nor love.
He believed that America could keep the space program going strong despite the recent tragic events. This speech was intended to inform America of the Challenge disaster. Reagan used specific pronouns to address the audience. He focused a lot on the individuals that lost someone due to this dismal occurrence. One thing that he said specifically to those close to the astronauts was, “Your loved ones were daring and brave, and they had that special grace” (3).
And, even in death, he did not obtain happiness or even guarantee his sons’ happiness, though he ends his life just because there is a possibility that his death may inadvertently bring success, and with it, happiness, to his family. As Willy considers his plan, he exclaims that his son, Biff, will “worship me for it!” (135). Soon after, Willy says, “When the mail comes he’ll be ahead of Bernard again!” In response, Willy’s image of Ben replies that this suicidal plan is a “perfect proposition all around,” (135). But, as much as Willy yearns for success and happiness, especially through Biff’s career, he fails. The proposition is not perfect, and Biff will not succeed as a salesman.
Christopher McCandless was an anomaly at best, he was the once in a lifetime kind of person that you couldn’t forget if he tried, “Many aspects of Chris’s personality baffled his parents. He could be generous and caring to a fault, but he had a darker side as well, characterized by monomania, impatience, and unwavering self absorption, qualities that seemed to intensify through his college years” (Pg 120). He had philosophies and questions about life, yet the courage to go find those answers to his questions was what stood out and maybe he didn’t find all those answers but he found enough to die in
From society being scared of it, how it was uncharted because of that, and also how someone like Equality 7-2521 thrived and became a different and stronger person from being alone in nature. The type of society that he (Equality 7-2521) lives in is very strict. He couldn’t be who he wanted to be or do what he wanted to do, because if he did then he would get punished for it. I’m sure that when he got exiled from society he was probably scared, but at the same time was relieved or curious to what else was out there. He couldn’t do much in society.
At the end of the story Okonkwo ends up being just like his father which is ironic because he strived to be nothing like him. The fear Okonkwo has from failing becomes his greatest downfall right to the end of his life. He became everything he didn’t want to become in the first place. If Okonkwo forgave his father from the beginning then things would have gone much differently. If he wouldn’t have been so cruel, harsh, warlike, and he would have been someone admired, strong, and courageous throughout the clan.
Background, Career in Space, and accomplishments after awards are much simpler ways for future African American Astronauts to take that were inspired by Guion Bluford (Guy). Many more African Americans wanted to be one of the first people in their race to do something they loved, but it had never been done before and was afraid of segregation. All that has changed, thanks to Guion Bluford. Today, people of all international races can do what they want to do in their career. Blacks, Hispanics, Asian, etc..
The answer to this question is not exactly known. Of course he knew that taking the case would be dangerous, and should his reputation be tarnished by an angry mob, his ambitions and economic future would be threatened. On the other hand, Adams didn’t think it would have been morally right to not give Preston a fair trial. Because of how great the tensions were over this conflict between Adams’ political and personal beliefs, he wrote in his diary that he was “never in more misery in my whole life.” However, John’s duty to the law was so strong that he later wrote that, “It was, however, one of the most gallant, generous, manly and disinterested actions of my whole life, and one of the best pieces of service I ever rendered my country.” So when Preston’s trial started in October of 1770, Adams argued that Preston had not given the order to fire and that his soldiers were provoked by the crowd. Eventually, the jury acquitted Preston on the basis of “reasonable doubt”- this was the first time a judge had ever used this term.
So I evaluate that the current situation he is in is in is way safer then where he started because of the he work he has put in. Also I evaluate that NASA is making a rescue plan because in the book they keep going back to NASA and wondering why a billion dollar company couldn’t save one man? It almost seems as though Mark Whatney is the only man on earth and they don’t like him so they don’t talk ☺. Overall I assess that Mark Whatney is progressively making progress to his ultimate goal, which is get off
Wes Moore wrote this book because he realized that the fate of the other Wes could’ve easily been his. The Other Wes admired his older brother Tony and even though Tony tried to keep Wes off the streets he didn’t listen and his mother didn’t want to believe that
Equality’s time captive before his extraordinary escape has taken a toll on his body and mind and now at the end of his journey forces him to question whether the decisions he’s made are full of sin or teeming with righteousness. Most who read this book would not come close to thinking these actions were wrong only the numbers of people in Equality’s generation would think this. Equality’s childhood was limited just as every other person around him. Apart from a few minor distinctions from the regular drone Equality was seemingly regular. One immense difference that changed his life was his level of intelligence.
