Pick one of the novels/movies we have read and viewed this semester that uses the protagonist’s name as the title. Explain why the protagonist’s name is used as the title. Your paragraph should be at least four to five sentences. • You want to be sure to include evidence from the movie to explain why you believe your character is important enough for his or her name to be used as the title of the movie. Think about his or her importance to the overall story.
The protagonist’s name, Gatsby, is used as the title of the movie and story, The Great Gatsby. This story and movie are named after this character because the entire story revolves around the powerful man, Gatsby. Gatsby is a very wealthy and prosperous man who lives across the bay from the woman he fell in love with when he was younger. Gatsby bought the mansion he lives in just so that he could be as close as possible to his true love who is married to someone else. Throughout the entire story, Gatsby tries to find various ways to be with his love; it is not just Gatsby who wants this relationship to work. Daisy wishes to be with him as well until one day Daisy learns the truth about Gatsby when the two are caught together by Daisy's husband. What happens next to Gatsby leads to his demise. It is because of his popularity, extreme wealth, and his death that make him the protagonist in the story and the reason for the story being titled in his name.

Mary Gerisch “Health Care As a Human Right” American Bar AssociationWeb Vol 43 No 3 Human Rights Magazine https://www.americanbar.org/groups/crsj/publications/human_rights_magazine_home/the-state-of-healthcare-in-the-united-states/health-care-as-a-human-right/ I found this source by googling “human right healthcare in the United States”. I looked at this source first because it was from an organization that I recognize as being credible on law and rights issues. As I read it, I found that it does a good job of breaking down what the health care right should be and then describing how it does not fit the current situation in the United States. This will be helpful to my paper because I can talk about how people are negatively affected in the United States because they can’t access proper and adequate health care.
