My Dad

My dad is someone who i admire. I look up to my dad because he has had to take care of my brother and I and my mom as well because she got so sick. He never gave up on my mom and always helped her with whatever he needed. No matter how busy he was he always made time to help my brother and I with our work or anything we needed. I go to my dad for a lot of advise on homework and college stuff. My dad always helps me make better decisions in life and leads me in the right direction in my grades and how hard i work in school.


"And then a hero comes along, with the strength to carry on, and you cast your fears aside and you know you can survive, so when you feel like hope is gone, look inside you and be strong, and you'll finally see the truth, that a hero lies inside you." -Mariah Carey

I think that the meaning of these lyrics are pretty straight forward. No matter what you are going through you have the strength and you can make it through it if you believe in yourself.

In Beowulf he didn't fight grenald with swords because grenald didn't have any, he fought with his hands and he belief in god.

My dad never gave up on my moms health when she got really sick, and even when he waas up through the night, he still got up and went to work and worked hard, and then he came home and helped my brother and I.

Themes and Symbols




Captain America has all these themes.

With epic writing, it talks about heroic things, capital America helped a boy who got kidnapped by a person who was trying to get away and captain America never gave up no matter what, he was running after the car and he went into the ocean to stop the guy.

For fate, in the beginning he was a scrawny guy and nobody thought he was going to be able to make it in anything and they wouldn't let him go into the war at first but then let him in, and in the end he was picked for the trial to see if he could become captian America.

Bravery, when the fake bomb was thrown at the shoulders everyone ran but captian America jumped on the bomb and was sacrificing himself, then he was chosen to have the trial on him, which he could have said no to, and even though it was hurting him he kept with it, so they could get the results.
