Honor can be defined in several ways, which can apply to almost anyone. When a person has honor it means that they are respectful, honest, and have integrity in what they believe in. They will stick to their beliefs no matter what, even if some other person says different. Josie Augustine is from Elsipogtog, NB First Nations and I believe that she is the most honorable person that I have met in my entire life. I feel that she practices honor in her everyday life and shows it to our community and many other communities. She has taught many children to adults to elders on our culture.
Josie Augustine has taught me to give thanks and pray to the creator, plants, and animals. She has explained and taught me why we do such things and why it is so important to us. Not only has she taught me as I was growing up but she has taught people from the community. When I decided to fancy shawl dance and to jingle dress dance that was when I became closer with the creator, and she was there to guide me. When I smoke my language and mispronounced she would not judge me or laugh at me for speaking it incorrectly. Josie would simply say “it’s alright douce, try it again”.
She has travelled from Elsipogtog, New Brunswick to Potlotek, Nova Scotia to teach children at the Elementary School. She has introduced different dance styles to the children, and I had gone in one day to teach them how to fancy shawl and jingle dress dance. She has taught them to try and speak mi’kmaq, make their very own regalia’s to wear at pow wows, and also different crafts. She volunteers every other day to help teach children on our reserve and several others because she has so much belief in our culture. She will try and pass down as much to the younger generation because they are the ones that have to keep it going and pass it down to the next generation. She wants to keep our culture alive because that…...

Pay It Forward and Honour Systerm

...Pay It Forward; An Honour System March 26th 2012 Pay It Forward; An Honour System In the movie Pay it Forward the young boy Trevor McKinney believes that everyone is capable of good. He believes that if an individual receives helps from someone they will be grateful. However, he has created a system where rather than reimbursing the individual who helped you, you help three other people. Hoping that over time this will grow larger and everyone will be getting help and helping others. He states that “it has to be something really big, something they can’t do for themselves (Leder).” Trevor helps a drug addicted homeless man named Jerry to get cleaned up and buys him clothes so he can get a job interview. He expects Jerry to help out three other people rather than paying him back. This is quite challenging for Jerry and at first he returns to his life as an addict, which causes Trevor to believe his system has flaws. He perseveres and helps his mom to make a new friend and stop drinking. His mom pays it forward by forgiving her mother and allowing her back into her life. The grandmother pays it forward in an amusing way by helping a criminal to escape from the police by allowing him to hide in her car. Now we may think that the chain would stop here, which it may have, however the grandmother used reverse psychology and told the criminal that he was not capable of paying it forward. This motivated the criminal to prove her wrong and therefore he carried the chain......

Euripedes Hippolytus

...As Artemis reveals the plot to Theseus in the passage, the themes of honour and relationship between man and god are evident. Hippolytus’ relationship with the goddesses Artemis and Aphrodite, along with his honour and pride, are well established directly from the prologue, and further solidified in this passage by Artemis. Hippolytus is extremely devoted to the goddess Artemis, honouring her by choosing to remain sexually chaste. His ability to remain sexually chaste, along with his strong will to pursue hunting activities explains the relationship he has with the goddess. Artemis displays honour for Hippolytus in this passage, informing Theseus the reason for her presence is, “[…] to reveal [his] son’s mind/ as just, so that [Hippolytus] may die with a good reputation.” (Euripides, 1298-1299) Artemis begins by mentioning her primary reason for being present is a result of her desire for Hippolytus to die with a good reputation. Artemis further reveals Hippolytus’ honour and pride when she informs Theseus, “[Hippolytus], […], did not go along/ with these words, nor in turn, since he is pious by birth, / did he retract the pledge of his oath when he was abused/ by you.” (Euripides, 1307-1310) Artemis emphasizes the honour Hippolytus dies with, as he stays true to his oath, although, by doing so, requiring him to face death as per the wishes of his father, Theseus. Also recognized for her nobility and honour in this passage is Hippolytus’ stepmother, Phaedra. Afraid to......

Honour Killinf

...HONOUR KILLING: MURDER IN THE NAME OF HONOUR CHAPTER 1 INTRODUCTION Honour killing is a deep rooted brutal and burning human rights issue in India and other countries. Women particularly are the victims of the gross violation. They exist all over the world but no religion stipulates them. Outdated traditions and alleged honour violating behaviour are the motive for these crimes. The victims are almost always female. Young, unmarried women can "dishonour" their families easily. Every year hundreds of women are killed in India in the name of honour and many cases go unreported and almost all of them go unpunished. The criminal justice system is unable to combat it though it is claimed that the criminal justice system is the most legitimate institution to control this practice in the country. Honour is the most precious moral attribute of mankind. It is deeply ingrained in its nature. Defence of honour even at the cost of life has been prevalent in human beings since ages. It is a commonwealth of close blood relatives. Defilement of honour is taken as the most atrocious social crime and its redemption becomes a joint and sacred duty of close-knit people. Debased groups have a soft approach towards transgression of honour. The sentimental chord dormant in them may react at times; its degree may vary from group to group. Tradition-bound rural societies invariably react violently for the redemption of their honour. To them honour is dearer than life. Honour......

Death for Dishonour: Lie, Steal, Cheat.

...from being a victim of a possible honour killing. Although, Ranjit was saved from an honour killing, there are other women and girls that are being killed in the name of “honour”. This is a very important issue that should be addressed now because if we do not, ‘honour killings’ will be considered acceptable as the years go by. Although honour killings are considered a traditional or cultural practice, it is a crime and the perpetrator(s) should be punished. “An honour crime can be defined as any act of violence and abuse, actual or threatened, perpetrated against individuals, mainly women, by male members of the family and community in defense of their honour” (Welchman and Hossain 210). Families and communities commit honour killings because they assumed their relative or member of the community was being defiant or was not abiding by the rules. Regardless of whether or not the accusations are right or wrong, they kill them for their dishonorable actions. The perpetrator(s) shows no form of guilt because they do not think they have done anything wrong and see themselves as the victim because there public image is thrashed due to the assumptions about the victim or the decisions they made. (Maleh) Majority of the time the victims of honour killings have been women and young girls. "Over 5000 women and girls are killed every year by family members in so-called 'honour killings', according to the UN” (Ginger). The coercion of honour is defined through power. ......

Vessels and Honour

...VESSELS OF HONOUR But in a great house there are not only vessels of gold and of silver, but also of wood and of earth; and some to honour, and some to dishonour. If a man therefore purge himself from these, he shall be a vessel unto honour, sanctified, and meet for the master's use, and prepared unto every good work. I normally use to think this scripture was for some special group of people till I met four lepers at the entrance of the city gate. Rejected by all but chosen by God to fulfil his prophecy these Lepers did not only have faith but also Love. In times when women killed their kids for food, these lepers thought of the nation when they took over a camp by the workings of God. Israel had an army that God could have used but God chose the four lepers instead. In life we mostly consider ourselves unworthy because of rejections we face in the hands of men. We look down on ourselves because something we lack or feel we lack and say we are not good enough. But God thinks otherwise if we are faithful to Him and try our best to please Him. God doesn't make mistakes and does not wish anyone to suffer but to give Love, Peace and Joy to all men. You may think God has abandoned you but God is positioning you to fulfil His prophecy. Whenever you are rejected by those you Love tell yourself, “they might be doing it for evil but God is turning it into good, and that many may be saved". BY APOGEE...

Martin Wiggins Argues That, in the Jacobean Era, ‘Female Honour Was Associated Largely with Female Chastity.’ and That ‘Second Marriages Troubled the Male Imagination.’ by Comparing Shakespeare’s and Webster’s

...A recurring theme in both Webster’s Duchess of Malfi and Shakespeare’s Hamlet is the concept of female honour and chastity, even though the women of the plays are secondary to the main plot. A woman’s necessity to marry is a negative message in Hamlet, and proves to be the hubris of the Duchess- it is her marriage that, in part, leads to her eventual death. Ergo, Wiggins’ statement about ‘second marriages troubling the male imagination’ is certainly true from the outset. The second scene of Hamlet opens onto a celebration, but in Hamlet’s first soliloquy, he distains his mother, for her ‘frailty’ in needing a new husband, likening her to worse than a ‘beast’ wanting ‘discourse of reason.’ Bearing in mind, the contemporary society where women spinsters and widows were stigmatized, yet, according to these plays, a woman’s remarriage was socially unacceptable. However, such is the misogyny and class based prejudice that a high-ranking woman is not socially stigmatized but merely gossiped about in private. However, the famed serial monogamist Henry VIII married six times; even introducing divorce, yet Hamlet is troubled by his mother’s single remarriage, even before learning of his uncle’s treachery, despite the fact that his father is dead. Perhaps then, it is the line ‘or ere these shoes were old’ that demonstrates his trouble with the hastiness of the remarriage, rather than the concept of the marriage itself. Throughout, the Duchess is defined not through her ideals, as......

Honour Killing in Our Country

...Honor killing in our country An honor killing or honour killing (also called a customary killing) is the murder of a member of a family or social group by other members, due to the belief of the perpetrators (and potentially the wider community) that the victim has brought dishonour upon the family or community. Honour killings are directed mostly against women and girls. The perceived dishonor is normally the result of one of the following behaviors, or the suspicion of such behaviors: a. dressing in a manner unacceptable to the family or community, b. wanting to terminate or prevent an arranged marriage or desiring to marry by own choice, c. engaging in heterosexual sexual acts outside marriage, or even due to a non-sexual relationship perceived as inappropriate, and d. engaging in homosexual acts. Women and girls are killed at a much higher rate than men. Recently, there has been a spate of honor killings in the country and this has led the government to decide what laws should be put in place to stop this heinous crime. Also whether the Hindu Marriage Act should be reformed or not is being debated. So what is the definition of honour killing and what leads families to commit this heinous crime so that they can protect their family honour? Is this practice prevalent only in India or is it prevalent in other parts of the world also? What are the misconceptions regarding honour killing and what are the solutions to stop this crime from spreading? These are the......

Morality and Ethics of Honour Killing

...numerous reports on “honour killings” the papers, with coverage of stories not only from Canada but from countries all over the world. Honour killings are the killing of women by her husband or family members when she has, or is suspected of, having dishonoured the family by adultery or other acts deemed inappropriate by the cultural values of the family. While the practice of honour killing has been in practice for some time, it has lately become more visible as cases that deal with honour killings have been appearing in Canadian courts. The Vancouver Sun reports that honour killings have been on the rise in Canada, or at least brought to the forefront of legal courtrooms and the media, as “first generation Muslims struggle to balance strict, old world ways of their parents with a desire to fit into a more liberal society (Cohen).” Problems arise when people charged for murder plead for leniency on account that the killing was done to defend their family’s honour (Massinon). For many “honour killers,” the act of killing in defence of family honour allow for a “full or partial defence against criminal ruling” in their countries of origin (Cohen). If honour killing is indeed considered a moral and ethical behaviour in one’s culture, to the extent that such actions are supported by a country’s law, could such an action then be considered moral? Using the approaches of utilitarianism, deontology and virtue ethics, this paper attempts to determine the morality of honour killing......

‘Peace with Honour’; to What Extent Was Disraeli Motivated by Either During the Eastern Crisis?

...which he called “coffee house babble” which demonstrates how peace had not been one of his motivations. Instead, Disraeli had intervened by sending a fleet to Besika Bay in order to continue to assert Britain’s authority and the Turks interpreted this as British support for them and thus rejected the Memorandum. Thus Disraeli’s aggressive actions merely contributed to the crisis instead of promoting peace in the Balkans. “Honour”, on the other hand, is far more likely to have been the main motivation behind Disraeli’s actions during the Eastern Crisis, for example by sending a fleet to Besika Bay in order to maintain Britain’s authority during the diplomatic process. This aggressive act underlined Britain’s independent policy but was also done in order to gain popular support for Disraeli; he demonstrated how Britain would not be non interventionist as Gladstone’s first ministry had been during the Franco Prussian War, acting on his promise of “bold consolidation”. These two motivations are somewhat interlinked as by consolidating Britain’s authority and honour, Disraeli would be keeping his promise to the electorate, thereby gaining him a personal and party advantage. His policy, however, was undermined after the Bulgarian massacre which damaged both Disraeli’s reputation at home and Britain’s authority in Europe. However, by the time of the Congress of Berlin, Disraeli benefitted from the Russo-Turkish War and jingoism in Britain which he encouraged by moving a British......

War Creative Writing - King, Honour, Human Dignity, Etcetera

...King, Honour, Human Dignity, Etcetera Weeping rain cascaded from the unforgiving, steely sky. We waited, khaki figures in a stinking, sepia trench. Every face expressionless, fear, regret, sorrow, all hidden behind stiff upper lips. King, honour, human dignity, we had been sold a lie. “One minute!” called the captain, breaking the silence. I glanced nervously around. I could hear the hurried, heavy breathing of the other soldiers, grasping at every breath as if it would be their last. “Fix bayonets!” I reached down wrenching the rigid blade from my worn leather belt. My frozen hands trembled violently as the weapon clicked into place. The sound of grating metal filled the trench. “Oh my God, I can’t do it, my fingers won’t work!” the lilting Irish tones of Paddy sounded desperate. The captain, without changing expression, marched to Paddy’s side, the cloying mud swallowing his feet at every step. Bending over the rifle he secured it within a second. He marched away in disgust. “Thank you, sir,” stammered the now humiliated Paddy. We all looked away to spare his dignity. I gazed down at my ruthless rifle with remorse and shame. How many fellow men would I kill today? What if I myself might die? The feeling was sickening. I swallowed my thoughts of murder and death, bitter like the vomit that stuck in my throat. My exhausted eyes stared along the line of pale faces drained of life. Walt gazed up the ladder in resignation, Taffy’s eyes widened with fear, and......

The Concept of Honor Killing Honor Killing is one form of extreme violence perpetrated on women by men in certain societies.
