Leadership, a great characteristic to have, is very important to the world and to society. Without leadership the world would easily fall into chaos. We have to have followers as will, but what would they do without someone to lead them? Without leaders, nothing would ever get done. In the play Julius Caesar by William Shakespeare, leadership is a main role for the many characters of the play. In Act 3 Scene 2, Antony took control of the plebeian crowd. Antony turned their hearts and changed their minds. He turned a Caesar-hating crowd into a Caesar-avenging mob. That act took a huge show of leadership.

Act 3 Scene 2 reminds me of my summer. This summer, I went to an FCA leadership camp. Leading in a gentle way, our teachers, our leaders, taught us how to lead. They taught us the skill of leading and also the skills of team work and following commands. They taught us in fun methods that struck home with us, while is also showed the leadership skills of the staff. After every day we would go into a cathedral and listen to the main leader preach. Although, there were some exceptions, especially on the last day of camp while everyone was riled up. Taking control of the crowd, the preacher started to talk, and we all shut up and listened. Without his skill of leadership, we would have continued to be a chaotic crowd. Leadership is necessary in everyday life.
