    are personal heroes - Douglass just because of everything he had to endure to get where he got to be, and Lincoln, despite being a white male adult of his time who didn't have to change his views on race and slavery, but upon meeting and speaking with Douglass realized how wrong he was, and changed his and the nation's trajectory.
