Therefor, high school coaches should not be required to give equal playing time to all of the players on the team because it is an unfair practice and stunts the growth of the more successful players. To begin with, a coach should not be required to equally split up playing time among the players because it shields the ability level of each individual athlete, making it extremely unfair to the hardest-working, most-talented players. After all, “Coaches don’t decide playing time; players do” (Bowen). Fred Bowen has coached high school sports for over 30 years and has said this to the parents of every player he has ever had before the season starts. By regarding the issue of playing time outwardly and honestly, he has managed to avoid the issue before it turned into a problem.
Sitting Bull was a holy man and chief of his people, well-known by his bravery in battle and bright insight in leadership. Never afraid to persist his belief, Chief Sitting Bull was a forerunner during years of resistance to the U.S government policies. (Eastman) His powerful influence to his tribe and great knowledge led to his spiritual legacy remaining in the history of Native Americans. Unfortunately, the U.S government wasn’t perceptive enough to understand Chief Sitting Bull’s
However, it also represents a point of maturity. Already I was a senior member of our troop, but as an Eagle Scout, I became part of an elite group of role models. More important, however, was my realization that a passive approach to life is childish, accomplishing nothing extraordinary and nothing beyond what is required. An aspect to maturity is not merely going through the motions, but getting involved in activities, seeking out opportunities, being willing to engage in activities whether or not you feel prepared. Acquiring the rank of Eagle Scout and conducting my Eagle Scout project forced me far outside my comfort zone to teach me this.
For the general public, that would be a change. The "Betsy Ross" flag is depicted on the Department of Veterans Affairs official shield. It's routinely hauled out for Flag Day, and for other occasions. And yes, it's also been displayed from time to time by supporters of Donald Trump and by the Patriot movement, which includes some groups that promote white supremacist views. Forest Hills Schools parent Patricia Gerondale, whose son brought the Trump flag to the game, said the visiting students never intended any harm or intimidation.
Adding on to the fact that Atticus wanted to teach his children to grow up free of prejudice; Atticus gives Scout an important life lesson. As said in the book “You never really understand a person until you consider things from his point of view… until you climb into his skin and walk around in it.” (Lee 85-87) Ultimately Atticus has a lot of passion in his heart to deal with the people he does everyday and be able to stand up to those who don’t agree with his beliefs. A final example of how Atticus is able to show courage through others is through the Cunningham’s. Atticus is able to compromise with Mr.Cunningham and help him out in exchange for something they are able to repay him
There have not been so many moments in my life that I feel like I really stood up for what I thought was truly right. So first off it wasn 't like there was ten versus one and I stand for what was right, but at the time it did feel like that to me. So at the time I was in boy scouts and there is an event called Fireball where all the scouts from Fireball district come together and compete and at the time I was senior patrol leader, which made me in charge of the all boy run troop with supervision of adults. So as we arrive there are two scouts that are left to arrive. Then as the day turns to night they both finally arrive after being late.
I believe he said this because he was derided for what he was doing, but he was not going to stop. The quote relates to my struggles backpacking 90 miles in New Mexico. Even though it may of been the most difficult thing I have done, I did not give up. I endured the challenge and achieved a level of success I had only dreamed of. I had been backpacking before, but when I had heard of Philmont, a scout camp out in New Mexico, I was exceptionally excited.
Never did I actually think that the 17 weeks would pass by in a blink of an eye and I would say that I actually enjoyed the whole of BMT and the PTP, together with my buddies, section mates, platoon mates, company mates and last but not least, Leopard Company Commanders. And I would like to thank all commanders for leading Leopard Company, because without them, there would not be us,
Leaders are made, not born. The Great Man Theory suggests that people inherit qualities and traits that make them better suited for leadership. “To suggest that leaders do not enter the world with extraordinary endowment is to imply that people enter the world with equal abilities, with equal talents.” (Thomas Carlyle 1840) While it is true that there are certain characteristics that leaders are born with that predispose them to become leaders, the influence of these characteristics are often overexaggerated. In the case of Eugene Kranz, the flight director for NASA’s Apollo 13 mission, he was a successful leader due to his many years of experience leading missions and his vast knowledge of this surrounding team. The skills and knowledge that

Abraham Lincoln Presidents hold one of the most esteemed offices in any country. Their leadership experience prior to being elected is helpful to their success; however, it is not mandatory. Abraham Lincoln was among America’s most affluent presidents. Lincoln’s previous experiences did not affect his decision to run for president. While on a tour of duty, Lincoln “Volunteered to fight in the Indian War,” where he actually did not actively involve himself in the war to his choice to run for president (Freidel).
I’m not ashamed of where I come from as it has made me who I am today. Every day I wake up with a goal set in mind to become a success but not just for myself but my community. Sure we are not the ideal neighborhood seen in movies but together we are family that can achieve greatness. “Don’t let your circumstances define you.” my grandmother told me growing up. At the time, I was not able to see how my background necessarily affected me.
They have ensured a good life for us. I have already planned out a job where I can provide for everyone. I promise.” Leo did not know what to think. As a young boy, his parents had the rule over any family decision. Later that day, the authorities appeared on their
“ One nation, indivisible with liberty and justice for all” does that even sound right? After knowing the Pledge my whole life and your whole life you know that sounds weird. Most people in the world have know the pledge as “ One nation under God, indivisible with liberty and justice for all” there whole life and it has never been a problem. So why do we want to change it now? The Pledge of Allegiance should not be changed because it is what our country was founded on, has never been a problem saying “under God” until recently, and changing it in the end would cause more problems than the pledge being wrote the way that it is now.
I wish to be let in the compound the government has created. What makes me different from others is that I am a boy scout and have several merit badges that I have completed that teaches skills and on top of all of that, I don 't get in trouble on purpose. Not many boy scouts become eagle scouts; however, I am trying to get eagle which is the highest rank you can get. Boy Scouts teaches you how to be a leader and how to survive. It teaches you things that carry out through your life.
