He is a magnificent influencer and is a role model for everyone who has heard his story. I am blessed that I have learned more about him so I can take note of the strength he used to get through his barriers and were able to conquer them one by one. He was persistent and stayed on the course to his goal and ignored all the hateful things people would throw at him. My biggest barrier used to be how shy I was; but each day, I am growing and growing. After listening to what Jackie Robinson did, I am encouraged to fight harder and conquer my
However, in “The Jazz Singer,” the 13-year-old Jackie Robbin has not been stopped by his family duty in getting what he wants – singing Jazz. Family duty is present in the movie when Jackie struggles to decide to sing at his Broadway show or to sing at the Yom Kippur service as his father is in deathbed. On the one hand, Jackie seems totally Americanized: when he runs away from home, changes his name, confronts his father after seeing him again, and asserts that his career comes before everything. All these make him seem strong-willed in pursuing his American dream. On the other, Jackie has moments of compromise: towards the end of the movie Jackie chooses family duty over his career, singing the religious song in his father’s place.
This helps convey the theme by stating that doodle has been the center of attention since he was born so he is used to everybody being around him and making him feel loved by his parents.

Keating such a great teacher. Well Mr. Keating understands how much stress and pressure the students are in, many of their parents hoping they will become something greater in the future. It seems that Mr. Keating is probably one of the teachers who really cares about his students than most of Welton staffs and teachers. Through the movie, Neil who started “The Dead Poet Society” again who Mr. Keating started a few years back. It was a cave where Neil and his friends would go at night to take turns saying their poem lines that they think is interesting.
This highlights another main idea, that life is a gift and there are always people who have it worse. This same concept returns in the last line of her speech when Rowling finishes with, “I wish you all very good lives”. This statement is directly related to the prior words of the young man. As well as this, Rowling repeated this to her audience in hopes of keeping the cycle going. To Rowling, aiding in others happiness as well as helping those who cannot help themselves is important.
Everyone in the bands had to dress in nice clothes, concert black, or their marching band uniforms; Troy decided to wear our marching band uniforms, which have not come out of their bags since our last performance in November. Obviously, every person’s uniform smelled like sweat and dirt due to our uniforms not being able to get cleaned until the end of the school year. As the concert was about to begin, the auditorium felt like a Taylor Swift concert with the amount of people in there. The Honorable Mention band performed first; everyone from Troy that was in the All-District sat together as we watched our friends perform. The director of the Honorable Mention band talked in between each song, like I know our director would as well.
It takes them to a familiar setting they spend five days a week in and makes the characters spend time with others they would almost never spend time with. From the moment the students arrive at school the audience learns a bit about the situation of each character. Andrew Clark the athlete gets dropped off by his father where he tells him that he needs to watch out because he could mess up his chances to go to collage and play sports. Allison Reynolds the basket case gets dropped off by his parents when she gets out they drive off without saying a word. Once inside the library, the place they will
The characters that were chosen to play each role fit perfectly. I loved how the director and producers decided to show Akeelah talking to her dad because it allowed the viewer to see how much he meant to her and that he is the reason she spells. This movie was empowering and consisted of a powerful message that encourages you to be who you are and not let other people stop you from doing what you are meant to do. Akeelah had to overcome so many challenges with people judging her and problems with her mom, but everyone was able to come together and help her. I loved that they showed all the people in the community she worked with helping her spell the final word.
Lowe saw the improvement of her son. I almost cried because of her heart-melting reaction. She has been taking care of her son who had been in frozen state for 30 years continuously because of Mrs. Lowe’s unconditional love towards Leonard. She reads to him every day because he loves reading and she understands his need even though he is static. I felt the authenticity of the acting of Ruth Nelson as she played a heart-wrenching role.
She has struggled with depression and self-harm her entire life and still manages to produce videos for her fans because she inspires them to have self-confidence and do what makes them happy. She has made many videos where she has admitted that she struggles every day with her mental health, and for someone like me that struggles with self-esteem and depression, she makes me feel as if I am a part of a supportive group where she and her fans accept each other as we come, and can tell people to dress how they are the happiest. The feelings of community and support combined with great style and comedic videos is why Drew Disaster is my favorite fashion
