Oscar Romero was someone who wasn’t afraid to risk his life in order to see the change he wanted. He fought for what he wanted even knowing that it could cause his death. Romero was like Jesus because he led a life that answered the question “what would Jesus do?” When reflecting on the life of Monsignor Oscar Romero and the life of Jesus Christ, the Passion of Christ comes to mind. Romero like Jesus had people who did not like him, in fact hated him for telling the truth.

During the 20th century America has had its ups and downs in accordance to power, however in my judgement I feel the main influence on their power was their impact in the Second World War. In the run up to the Second World War America showed their power, in a fashion, by being an independent country. They refrained from being involved in the sales of arms to foreign bodies and they kept to the idea of being an isolationist country.
After the First World War the American government voted that it was going to become an isolationist country, this meant they would keep out of any foreign affairs that would come up in the future. Even though the German forces were moving into the

Gandhi is the "Most Important Peace Hero of the 20th Century" because he taught the world that freedom from the oppressor could be obtained through nonviolent means.

Kitty Hawk to World War II
The Wright brothers near Kitty Hawk, NC.
Although there is some debate about who was the first to fly an airplane, credit for this feat is usually given to Wilbur (1867–1912) and Orville Wright (1871–1948), who made four controlled, sustained flights in a powered heavier-than-air vehicle on Dec. 17, 1903, near Kitty Hawk, N.C. Interestingly, the Wrights never claimed to be the first to fly. The main claim of the Wright brothers, and their supporters, was that they were first to design and build a flying craft that gave the pilot adequate control while in the air. The unique feature of the Wright brothers' aircraft, beginning with their 1902 glider, was the

Cubism was one of the strongest art movements in the 20th century that gave birth to many other movements such as futurism and suprematism. The Forefathers of this revolutionary way of painting were Pablo Picasso and George Braque.

The shapes are flattened onto canvas so that different sides of each shape can be shown simultaneously from many angles. This new style gave a 3 dimensional look on the canvas. The cubist movement gave rise to an extraordinary reassessment of the interaction between form and space changing the course of western art forever. The groundbreaking

At the dawn of the 20th century large colonial powers had carved up the world between themselves. ‘Core’ zones were marked by their level of economic development and the ‘peripheral’ zones their level of economic underdevelopment. The political organization of economic dependencies in the form of colonies and semi-colonies was established by a small number of nation-states. This domination of the periphery by the core nations is known as Imperialism. Imperialism in this overt political form, with directly administered peripheral zones is a salient feature of the first half of the 20th century.

Paradoxically, despite these experiments and innovations, French literary traditions have endured, as have the values of the old order.

The 1905-1930 group boasts three main writers: H.G. Wells, Arnold Bennett, and John Galsworthy. These writers of the 20th century, unlike their predecessors, published their works in parts. Before this time, novels were printed in volumes and cost a fortune. This new improvement allowed even the common people to enjoy books.

The first sustained contact between Europe and America, in the 16th century, opens the door to a new concept - world-wide civilizations, evolving through colonies and empires. Spanish civilization is exported to Latin America. English culture spreads even further, in an empire which includes India, Australia, New Zealand, Canada and eventually many parts of Africa.
From the 16th to the 19th century it is this imperial impulse which carries European civilization round the world, often as a thin veneer over older and very robust local cultures. But by the
