We have to determine whether or not the choices we make are worth the compromise of our values. At the beginning of every priests career they take a vow of obedience, celibacy, and poverty. If you’re asked to describe a priest you would most likely say they put the church and God before themselves and that they don’t lie. You might say that they’re the most pure and honest person that you could think of. In the movie “Sleepers” the priest, Father Bobby, is idolized by many people for his honesty, integrity, and his devoted love to God and His church. At first glance, it could easily be said that Father Bobby is a Socratic man. For example, he was a father figure to a lot of boys in the community and he tried to keep them out of trouble. In a way, he was like a God. He had such a love for the people in the community and viewed all of the children as his own. There was one in particular, Lorenzo Carcaterra who completely adored Father Bobby. Lorenzo came from an abusive household with an abusive father. It was only natural that he would cling to a man who appeared to have a strong heart, not a cowardly one. There was one incident where Father Bobby came to the…

    Should digits on a weight scale determine a modeling career? Models are the society’s way of expressing today’s most current fashion statements. However, to present good fashion one must meet society’s beauty standards right? That is wrong. We should be promoting beauty on all sizes, colors and races.
