For instance, “I killed him,” he said slowly. “I killed that boy.”Bob, the handsome Soc, was lying there in the moonlight, doubled up and still… I looked at Johnny’s hand. He was clutching his switchblade and it was dark to the hilt” (p. 56). He had no choice to do this because when he did all the Socs ran away. To conclude, Johnny is a hero because he saved Ponyboy from Socs who were drowning
I believe that hamlets actions were not justified but one is, because revenge isn’t a good thing, but Claudius is not just a murderer he is a stealer too. Claudius killed Hamlets father with the easiest but the cleverest way. He poisoned Hamlets father himself, while Hamlets father was sleeping. Then Claudius told everyone that he died of a sudden heart attack or some disease nobody knew
For example, Johnny killed Bob and then ran away. On page 56, paragraph 4, Johnny says, “I killed him,”. That proves that Johnny killed Bob. Ponyboy was a witness and ran away with Johnny, but never told the police that. On page 57, paragraph 3, Ponyboy says to Johnny, “You really killed him, huh, Johnny?’.
In an article I found on ‘The Independent ‘ by Kashmira Gander, Gander really helps the reader understand the shooting in detail due to the explicit facts he used. In the article the reporter said that “the massacre was masterminded by a 36 year old father of three” (Gander). Being a father meant that he should know the importance of kids and how they are the ones who hold the future of the world in their hands. I think he was ‘blind’ to the fact that the 132 kids he killed were the future helping hands of the world. His massacre didn’t just hurt the kids or the future but it also killed the parents of the kids mentally as parents spend all their life wanting something good for their kids.
Atticus shown an enormous amount of courage as well as heroism by dismissing his principles in order to save his county from Tim Johnson by killing him with a single shot. Although Atticus has not fired a gun nor touched it in years, he accepts the responsibility for bringing the sick dog down, knowing that if he misses, disaster will
The book states that Johnny said, “‘I killed him. I killed that boy.’ Bob, the handsome Soc, was lying there in the moonlight, doubled up are still” (51). This quote shows how Johnny killed Bob while Pony was almost getting drowned to death by the other Socs. The two boys then had to go and hide somewhere since they had just committed murder. This heroic action changes the way he views Johnny because he used to see him just as a friend, while now he was a lifesaver to Ponyboy.
Without coming clean” (Wiesenthal 53). It indicates that Karl really sought for redemption before his final breathe. Simon became his last chance to make everything back into right track and requested a peaceful death. Another instance demonstrated Karl’s repentance was that he remembered he shot the family to death when they jumping out from the window of the burning house. That image remained in his mind and tortured him mentally until his very last second of life.
Even though he killed some one he was still saving Pony. Pony thinks “Next thing I knew I woke up on the pavement beside the fountain”(p.56) after he almost drown. Johnny saved Pony from being drowned. He helped Pony get the kids out of the burning church. This quote from the book states Johnny saved kids from dying in a burning church“the door was blocked by flames, pushed open the window and tossed out the nearest kid.”(p.92) It shows that he saved kids from burning in a church.
In the end of the book when Scout offers to walk Boo home he is able to reflect on all the times he has been watching out for Scout and Jem. He knows in his heart that he only wanted the best for the two children and now that he has stepped out of his shadow he can really feel complete with his life choices towards the children. In relation to Boo finally emerging from his house; Boo saves the kids from Bob Ewell. When Scout and Jem were being attacked by Bob no one could’ve known what was happening or that they were in danger. Boo made it eminent to the kids that he had all along been watching out `for them when he runs out and saves their lives; returning Jem home safely as well as Scout in the process.
By killing Mr. Ewell; Boo Radley killed his innocence. After the attack, Boo gently carried Jem to Atticus so that Dr. Reynolds could take a look at him. At first, Atticus thought that Jem had killed Mr. Ewell, but Mr. Tate insisted that he fell on his knife. As they were arguing, Atticus realised that Boo had killed Mr. Ewell. Atticus and Mr. Tate knew that Boo would be killed if the town found out that he had killed Bob Ewell, and so they agreed that Mr. Ewell fell on his knife.
As Atticus had once advised me to do, I tried to climb into Jem’s skin and walk around in it: if I had gone alone to the Radley Place at two in the morning, my funeral would have been held the next afternoon” (Lee 77). This showed the children’s perception of the Radley Place, a horrifying haunted house. Since it already seemed terrifying in the day, for Jem to visit during the night, it showed his courage, as many children in the neighborhood would not commit such and act. Another form of courage shown by Jem is when he and Scout took items from the Radley’s tree, as explained by Harper Lee: “From then on, we considered everything we found in the knot-hole our property” (Lee 79). This reveals Jem’s courage as he proceeds to the Radley Place when other children would not dare to go near the house, and accepted the items that Boo gave them as a gift.
Lastly, Atticus Finch, possibly the most important symbolic character, represents justice throughout the whole novel. Atticus practices and teaches his children to be morally correct and to do what is right. Going against what the majority of the residents, Atticus hopes for justice and tries to do what seems impossible in Maycomb—prove a black man innocent based solely on the word of a white family. Although the case doesn’t conclude in Tom’s favor and Atticus doesn’t get the just verdict he wanted, Robinson is eventually avenged by another mistreated member of Maycomb—Boo Radley. Atticus proves himself a good lawyer, however, justice is not served until Boo Radley finally kills demented Bob Ewell.
Although Beowulf liked the gifts he never asked for them. He was only trying to help out King Hrothgar and wanted to fight. Although defeating Grendel was not enough Grendel 's mother had to be defeated to for trying to kill people in the town. Beowulf took the challenge. When Beowulf goes to her he feels as if though he is going to die.
For my ethical leadership paper I choose the Boy Scouts of America organization. The reason that I choose the Boy Scouts of America was that I could not think of a more ethical organization than them. The reason that they are so ethical is that they train young men every day to put other people before there selves when they do community service. A very good example of this would be in 2008 four boy scouts were killed trying to help others before there selves when a tornado hit a camp site in Iowa (Del,J 2008). This show a type of leadership that many people would not understand unless they went through the program.
