    There were many factors that contributed to the entry of the United States into World War I.

    Martin Luther King Jr. once said, “Faith is taking the first step even when you don’t see the whole staircase” (Dorinson). The definition of faith upholds two meanings. One being faith is complete trust or confidence in someone or something and the other being a strong belief in God or in the doctrines of a religion.

    The definition of what power is, is very symbolic and an idea based off of one’s points of view. Each person has a different perception because of the way that they grew up.

As seen in the novel Night by Elie Wiesel, the Holocaust is a tragic event that took place in human history. The word Holocaust is of Greek origin, meaning “sacrifice by fire” (memorial council 1). This event begs to be forgotten due to the inability of people to face the harsh realities taking place during this time period in the 1940s. Normal civilians were aware of the cattle cars…

Additionally, it was challenged whether the enormously devastating impact of nuclear weapons was ethically sound and whether it could be effectively used militarily. The notion that there was no winner to a nuclear war, however,…
