Antigone After filling up your gas-guzzling SUV you walk into the convenience store to pay for the gas and buy a soda Reaching for the Diet Coke your eye catches on something as a man walks past you It is a shine or a shimmer Just the light bouncing off the keys you think You grab the soda and shut the door that is now fogged up due to the warm air As you turn around chaos breaks through the quiet and everybody is leaping for the ground Quite puzzled you just stand there looking at everybody wondering what the hell is going on And then you see it The man that walked by you has a gun in his hands and is waving it around like a baton Fortunately he hasnt seen you standing due to the high shelves He aims the gun right at the cashier It is at this moment when you must decide whether you are brave or a coward You have to decide whether you can do something about this situation or if you are just going to lay on the floor with everyone else Being brave is tough It ta kes a lot of courage and strength to do something that people would notice to be an individual Sophocles develops a character in his play Antigone that is the definition of brave and courageous Her name is Antigone She is an individual because she stands up for what she believes is right even though it may go against the laws created by man Antigones uncle Creon has declared that Polynices Antigones dead brother may not be buried or mourned due to the fact that he fought against his home civilization And anyone that defies this law will be punished by death Antigone however firmly believes that her brother deserves the proper burial and ceremony that any soldier would receive Hes my brother Yours too in case
