service faith honor.
John McCain mentions first, “I believe in honor, faith, and service to one’s country and to mankind. McCain writes how an event which happened in his life leads and reinforces him to believe in honor, faith, and service. These three have helped him have a desire to serve in causes greater than their self-interests; and become more understanding of himself so that he can be a good example for future generations to make better decisions to pave the path towards righteousness and freedom.
the essay is strait forward, a strong and humble tone throughout. I sensed a proud tone from family, comrades, and fellow Americans and it comes in at the end as well. To me it seemed he is just another average middle class American. He looked up to people that made you want to serve a cause greater than your own self-interest. It made me want to be this way, by following integrity and honor we can serve in causes. It makes one proud. Using stories to tell about honor, faith and service tells of his meaning of faith honor and service. I think this is an effective way to communicate beliefs because it brings out emotions and it connects with readers’ stories. With the people that he idolized, such as his English teacher, their stories and words helped shape and take control of his beliefs in honor faith and service. from a story shaped world, i think that McCain was inspired to serve in greater causes by other peers stories and language, especially his english teacher, can effect and shape one persons life. “I have believed that the means to real happiness and the true worth of a person is measured by how faithfully we serve a cause greater that our own self-interest.” With the events and teachings that shaped his beliefs if one has honor, faith it can inspire him to act in greater interests. This is done through service to ones country and cause. By having honor and faith life event inspire one to serve a cause greater than their own self-interest theme in the paper. He mentions a different kind of faith, a faith that unites and mends, that everyone is created equal and given unalienable rights. if one is proud they should give each other this faith, honor and service. By being proud through honor, service and faith it should make one feel they are making a difference toward a just and free society.
