Taking a stand
taking a stand is a big theme in the book Antigone. Antigone is a book about a girl who takes a stand against a strong powerful leader, and then suffurs the consequences. taking a stand is important. you must take a stand for what you believe in even if you are all alone. once i had to take a stand against one of my family members. yes it was very hard and i felt remorse but they were wrong and needed to know how i felt. i boldly made my point and then left the subject alone. i stood up by myself but i did not care. i feel there are two paths right and wrong and if you watch people do wrong then you are just as wrong as they are. Antigone teaches people that the right path is not always the easy path but if you believe in the path you must stand up for the path.
