Gandhi created a revolution of change in India. He had an enormous impact that forever that vibrant country, and he did it all with nonviolence. Gandhi led people and taught them to stand up for themselves and in the process made India a free and independent country. The unfair treatment would no longer stand, it was time for change. The nonviolence policy worked because Gandhi did not give in, he accepted punishment and responsibility, and his followers were loyal.
Another reason why I think George Washington had tremendous abilities in leadership is because, he is a proud man. He stood up to general Gates when he said he couldn’t have the men win. Also he has tremendous abilities because he stood up for what he believed in. When the Hessian Colonel Rall got shot he did not want to visit him because he believed that he should not

“A White Man’s Burden” by Rudyard Kipling because Nathan and Kipling both believe they are doing what they have to do. They feel like it is their duty to “take care” of the uncivilized people of under developed countries, but in reality the native people don’t want their help. If he really wants to help people and spread God’s word with good intentions he would take notes from his foil, Brother Fowles. Brother Fowles basically does everything right that Nathan does wrong. For example, unlike with Nathan the native people actually like Brother Fowles and his family.
To begin with, Atticus demonstrates moral courage through his determination to defend Tom Robinson's case, despite of what his friends and neighbors have to say. He does what he thinks is right even if other people think it's wrong. In the book it says, “I’d hoped to get through life without a case of this.”(pg 70). This quote states that Atticus is doing something out of his comfort zone, which means that he is showing courage by taking this case. In addition, in the book it says, “I'm simply defending a Negro his name's Tom Robinson.” (pg 69).
Although some of Christopher McCandless' decisions portray him as an anti-hero, his personality and determination demonstrate the qualities of a tragic hero, one who makes mistakes but still tries to follow his beliefs and ideals. Christopher McCandless is often described as a sociopath, and although he did hurt those around him, he was aware of what he had done and was beginning to reconcile with the idea of returning to society. McCandless had walked away from his parents and the life they had built for him. His father comments upon this, saying how he didn’t know how “‘a kid with so much compassion could cause his parents so much pain’” (104). McCandless was able to
Therefore, the haters are wrong that Jackson was a “monster or devil” and he was actually a hero. Andrew Jackson was a hero back in the days. “ Any man worth his salt will stick up for what he believes right, but it takes a slightly better man to acknowledge instantly and without reservation that he is in error.” “Every good citizen makes his country’s honor his own, and cherishes it not only as precious but as sacred. He is willing to risk his life in its defense and its conscious that he gains protection while he gives it.” -Andrew Jackson. Andrew Jackson was a
Atticus is the obviously the main character in the novel that shows courage and bravery by defending an African in court, even though he knows there is no possible way of winning the case he still must try to just so he can ‘uphold his sense of justice and self-respect’, because Atticus thoroughly believes that Tom Robinson is one-hundred percent innocent. Atticus stated: “I wanted you to see what real courage is, instead of getting the idea that courage is a man with a gun in his hand. It 's when you know you 're licked before you begin but you begin anyway and you see it through no matter what. You rarely win, but sometimes you do.”, he is still brave enough to stand up in front of the racist community and try to plead a black man innocent even though he, himself is a white man. Scout shows bravery throughout the text by always not being afraid to fight boys for example Walter Cunningham Jr. and Francis.
Here, Wiglaf proves himself the better man because he has honor while the others, who willingly abandoned their King in battle, clearly do not. Lastly, Beowulf and Wiglaf both show outstanding loyalty throughout the piece. All of Beowulf’s actions are clearly motivated by loyalty, starting with his decision to help the Danes. Beowulf’s father once started a feud, which Hrothgar helped to end. Hrothgar recalls, “Ecgtheow acknowledged me with oaths of allegiance” (472).
and Nelson Mandela have spoken out against injustice, even though the chance of great personal harm was at risk. These men did not immediately abolish that which they protested. Sometimes facing evil is better than defeating it, because it proves that no matter the outcome you should always stand up to what is trying to scare of diminish you. History’s greatest heroes stood up to evil purely because it was the right thing to do, not because they thought they would walk away with their lives. Though death became of many of these heroes due to their actions, this does not mean they were defeated.
He explains that although he shouldn’t be defending him, he does it for Scout and Jem. His main reason to defend him is because he wants to prove his role as a lawyer and as a father. He says, “I could never ask you to mind me again” (Lee 100) to Scout because if he doesn’t stay loyal and respectful as a lawyer, he can’t display a good role model for her and Jem. Atticus is a honorable lawyer and father who stays true to his duties no matter what they are. Mrs. Dubose presents bravery for living through a disease.
