Once apon a time there was a young boy named Camion. Camion had the job of picking a hard circular fruit called a tark from the tark trees outside the kings house. After he had picke dthe tarks from the bottom of the tree he couldn’t get the rest because they were too high for him. For days he tried to think of ways that could help him reack the fruit. then one day he found a wooden stick that was long enough to help him reach the fruit, but then he had no way to get the fruit down. So he added a net at the top of the stick to help him get the fruit. For weeks he had been picking the fruit with the stick and taking it to the basket. Then one day he got a partner named Overdo. So Camion made him an exact stick that he had. After a couple of days they made a system, Camion would take down the fruit and pass them to Overdo. Their system worked perfect and in a few hours they found it very fun passing the fruits back and forth. So they both quit their job and started a business amking and selling these sticks to kids. All of the kids loved playing, so they Camion and Overdo took these sticks one step farther. They made a whole sport with these sticks. They showed the kids the sport and it was instantley a hit. They decided to call the sport lacrosse. One day Camion and Overdo died and everyone was sad. But even without these two the sport was stilled played and is still played now. Camion and Overdo are up in heaven playing lacrosse and watching over all the kids and adults enjoying their sport. And people still look up to them as lacrosse gods.

During the famed O.J. Simpson trial, there were arguments between defense attorney Robert Blasier and an FBI agent about the actual value of pi, seemingly to reveal flaws in the FBI agent’s intellectual acumen.

Although these men are very similar they do have som differences. Mandela spent time in jail only one bt King spent many times. Mandela became the leader as a president compared to King who was just fighting for what he wanted. Both men wanted to unite the nations  but Mandela was uniting South Africa as King was uniting America. Mandella used the Rugby World Cup to unite South Africa, King used speecheas, marches, etc. to unite America.

Heros. That one word is almost all you need to know about these two great men. Both blacks trying to fight for what is right and unite a great nation. Nelson Mandela, a man who spent 28 years in prison just for fighting for what is right. He came out of the treaturous place with no running water or electricity, not angry, but with the dream of uniting the blacks and whites of South Africa to make a great country. He becomes the president but is still not accepted by whites. He uses the Rugby World Cup to show that they are one country. A great poem that describes the fight and the struggles that Mandela went through was “Invictus” by William Ernest Henley. “It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll.
I am the master of my fate:
I am the captain of my soul.”

There is a reason that this is in the opening scene of the movie, because it tells about Mandella.

Martin Luther King is alot similar to Mandella. He is a powerful black man who is fighting for freedom. Along his way he is beaten, bruised and battered but that never stopped this great leader. He kept on marching, kept on giving speaches, and kept on leading the big group of people who were with him from the start. On August 28, 1963 at the Lincoln Memorial in Washington D.C King delivered his greatest speech, I Have a  Dream.

“Five score years ago, a great American, in whose symbolic shadow we stand today, signed the Emancipation Proclamation. This momentous decree came as a great beacon light of hope to millions of Negro slaves who had been seared in the flames of withering injustice. It came as a joyous daybreak to end the long night of their captivity.”

This speech reached the hearts of thousands of black and white people everywhere. On April 4, 1968, five years after one of the greatest moments in American history, King was assasinated outside his motel room.

Heros. That one word is almost all you need to know about these two great men.

Black History Month: Hero Qualities

When I talk about heros, I don’t meen Batman or Superman, I’m talking about real life heros, Ghandi, Mandela, King. Many of our modern day heros have similar characteristics. Some are the ability to lead, the power to make people believe with you and help you in your fight, and the ability to stand up for what is right and what you believe in. When you look back in time you see all these characteristics in those heros, and you see them in modern day heros as well.

“Out of the night that covers me,
Black as the Pit from pole to pole,
I thank whatever gods may be
For my unconquerable soul.

In the fell clutch of circumstance
I have not winced nor cried aloud.
Under the bludgeonings of chance
My head is bloody, but unbowed.

Beyond this place of wrath and tears
Looms but the Horror of the shade,
And yet the menace of the years
Finds, and shall find, me unafraid.

It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll.
I am the master of my fate:
I am the captain of my soul.”

William Ernest Henley

The poem “Invictus” by William Ernest Henley descibes a hero that would not give up no mater what. That is another great quality of all heros.

In 2011 there have been alot of heros, but the one that sticks out to me the most is not a person, it is a group of people. The protesters in Egypt are what I think are modern day heros. Just like Mandela and King thye are standing up for what they want. They were fighting against the status quo, what they have been going thruogh for a long time.  But them fighting is not the only thing that amkes them heros. After Mubarrak stepped down the people were out on the streets, boys, girls, men, and women cleaning up the big mess they made. These are the qualities that make them modern day heros.

“It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll.
I am the master of my fate:
I am the captain of my soul.”
In the poem “Invictus” William Ernest Henley talks about how he is fighting for somthing, no matter how hard he is hit or how much he is put down he will not give up. In the movie Mandela is fighting for black freedom in South Africa and even though he was in jail for 28 years he will not stop until he unites the country through th world cup.

“It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll.
I am the master of my fate:
I am the captain of my soul.”
