To face fear you must have courage. Fear and courage go hand in hand. Amanda Enayati told her story in “My Relentless Pursuit” of a time when fear turned into courage. Someone broke into her car in front of her house and stole her valuable belongings. Knowing it was her husband's fault for leaving the car unlocked. Enayati knew there was no point to call the cops since the car was unlocked. The not knowing is a curious, unfulfilling, feeling a person can go through.
"You gain strength, courage, and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, 'I lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along."- Eleanor Roosevelt. You are not born with courage, it 's something that’s created over time. Being courageous is never a lucid decision, it determines the quality of a person 's mind as it 's faced with difficulty, danger, pain, and a test of bravery. The book To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee develops the theme concerning courage to show the difficulty and the necessity of acting boldly. The characters Atticus, Scout, Arthur Radley and Mrs.Dubose display an act of courage as they are faced with feasible but difficult situations.
Throughout history, we have had to deal with conflict. How we deal with conflict can be most challenging of all. We all can find our strength to make it through treacherous times. A positive attitude can help a tremendous amount when dealing with conflict. An example of this can be found in The Diary of Anne Frank. Anne’s positive attitude and hope helped her overcome her distressing time in hiding during World War II. Other examples can also be found in the poem “Homesick”, and journal entries written by youngsters living during World War II. Having hope helps overcome obstacles that you may have thought was unfeasible to surpass. Hope can be found in everything. Fear can leave you petrified, but hope is the greatest strength that you can possess and hope will always overpower fear.
“You gain strength, courage, and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You must do the thing which you think you cannot do.” This quote by Eleanor Roosevelt says that to grow as a person, someone must first be scared. People also have to do what they think is impossible to grow. The Little Rock Nine, who integrated Central High, were scared for their lives every day of their high school experience at Central High. The ideas shown in this quote are expressed in the memoir Warriors Don’t Cry by Melba Patillo Beals. Melba Patillo Beals was a member of the Little Rock Nine. Beals highlights conflict and metaphor in her novel and displays examples of Eleanor Roosevelt’s beliefs in action.
“Courage doesn’t mean you don’t get afraid. Courage means you don’t let fear stop you.” -Bethany Hamilton. This quote really emphasizes that courage has nothing to do with the absence of fear, yet how courage is pushing past and fighting that fear in their way. Jackie Robinson, Gary Paulsen, and Karara from Island of the Blue Dolphins all went through life-changing moments in their lives and faced it with courage by pushing past the fear standing in their way.

Knowing that this is an everyday struggle for the black community, changes your views on how things are established for them.

King shows his willpower through him fighting for equality despite knowing the danger he faces. This is first evidenced here. “Birmingham is probably the most thoroughly segregated city...its ugly record of brutality is widely known”(6). This shows how King takes risks by staying in Birmingham Jail to express his views even though there is an ugly record of brutality in there. This is evidenced again in this quote. “If you were to observe their ugly and inhumane treatment of Negroes here in the city…” (28). This quote expands upon his bravery by saying how badly prisoners like King could’ve been treated and him knowing that still proceeded with his plans.
This documentary tells the story of Kitty, a holocaust survivor, and things she went through. Kitty uses her experiences to have an influence on the overall video. When asked about hunger during her time in the camp, she says, “It is a total obsession, the worst thing anyone can experience” (One Day in Auschwitz). In this quote, Kitty is being subjective by using her feelings and thoughts about things to influence the viewer. She wants to get the point across of how bad the situation was. Along with using her feelings, Kitty also uses objective point of view to provide facts and real events that went on. This allows the reader to take the real situations and be able to connect them with how she was feeling. The use of first person expressed by this documentary was beneficial to the viewer because they were able to be receiving information from someone who witnessed the camps first hand and the feelings that aroused from
The meaning of courage is when one has the mindset that enables them to face fear, difficulty, pain, or danger. Courage or bravery can come out in a person for a number of reasons. When people think of someone as “courageous” they usually think that they have done a huge deed for someone or really made a difference when, in actuality, it sometimes takes a courageous person to profess their love or even admit that they were wrong about something. Most of the efforts made by someone usually require a certain amount of courage. Fear, following one’s heart, standing up for what is right, and facing suffering with dignity and faith all require courage.
In conclusion, fear is moments that are considered to be dangerous from an emotional standpoint but is actually the key to feeling a sense of pride and courage when one overcomes these obstacles. What I had regarded as a useless function of emotions just meant to keep people from their potential, I discovered that it was the opposite; fear is meant to allow people to recognize their limits, and have them motivated to push past them, to reach your true potential in
