Storyboard Text

  • "That I, alone and with the help of my men, May purge all evil from this hall. I have heard, too, that the monster's scorn of men Is so great that he needs no weapons and fears none. Nor will I..."
  • "Then they came to Beowulf, their king, and announced That his hall, his throne, the best of buildings, Had melted away in the dragon's burning Breath.
  • Their words brought misery, Beowulf's Sorrow beat at his heart: he accused Himself of breaking God's law, of bringing The Almighty's anger down on his people.
  • "Who knows when princes and their soldiers, the bravest and strongest of men, Are destined to die, their time ended..."
  • At a young age, Beowulf proved himself to be a great warrior and won many battles. His people witnessed his strength and abilities and thought that he'd be of help to the Danish people. When the challenge of battling Grendel was presented, he didn't back down. Personally, I believe that this illustrates that the Anglo-Saxons valued courage and dignity.
  • The Life of Abraham Lincoln.
  • Once his people presented the problem of the dragon destroying their homes, he fell in dismay. The type of person, king, Beowulf is wouldn't allow him to just let his people hurt. To him, it was morally correct to defend his people and his home no matter who or what he was put up against.
  • "As a nation, we began by declaring that 'all men are created equal."
  • Although he sensed his fate before going into the battle, he still risked his body even at an old age. Beowulf died fighting for his right and his people's right, which proves to be a great heroic trait.
  • The assassination of Abraham Lincoln.
  • President Abraham Lincoln was a great man of his time. Today, his qualities and accomplishments are still remembered and talked about. Lincoln was the 16th President of the United States, a congressman, lawyer, and a slave owner.
  • In Lincoln's famous speech, "The Gettysburg Address" he states this popular quote. Many people criticized him for this due to him owning slaves, which made him seem like a hypocrite. Yet, he fought for the Union, and he wanted what was best for the people, he wanted them to be connected and join together to become one.
  • Although Abraham Lincoln was assassinated, he still proved to be a great leader/hero of his time. People valued his leadership skills as well as his integrity. Lincoln faced many battles and challenges through his life, but he persevered through them all and in the end, he was still killed. He was an essential figure in shaping our country's history as well as politics.
