Journey

...what I just heard. I asked him again if he is not making it up, but he said he already purchased tickets online and made plans. On 10th May we departed Maryland and headed towards our first destination, The Big Island of Hawaii. As soon as we reached there after a long journey, I was stunned by the beautiful scenic views that I only saw in pictures. I was totally lost in the scenic views that I forgot to blink my eyes We stayed in the 5-star hotel in front of the beach. Next day we hired a helicopter for a trip to see volcano. It was simply amazing. We stayed in The Big Island for 4 days, and then we went to the island of Maui for 4 days. We did so many activities which included Jet Ski, Scuba diving, Parasailing etc. We also watched the sunrise of Kalekala's summit, it was very romantic. At last one of the best things we did in Hawaii was to drive on the Hana Highway. It was the most amazing and spectacular experience of my life that I was stunned by God's creation of a heaven-like place on earth. This highway has 600-plus turns, 50 one-lane bridges and breathtaking views that alternate between mountain streams and soaring sea cliffs, the Hana Highway is less a roadway than an event in itself. Our journey ended on 18th of May. On our way back we traveled by plane again. During the trip I thought, 'Those days were amazing and unforgettable, I wished if I had more days to spend over there'.My holiday was exciting and full of joy. I enjoyed it immensely. I am looking......

The Hunger Games Compared to "The Heroes Journey"

...Stephanie Levy Pd.7 The Hunger Games Essay “A hero is someone who has given his or her life to something bigger than oneself.” This quote was said by Joseph Campbell who also wrote The Hero’s Journey: A Summary of the Steps. These steps begins with the character in just his/her ordinary world and ending with that character, having gone through the most traumatic moment if their life, returning home and achieving what they set out to do. The book The Hunger Games, written by Suzan Collins, is a wonderful story about a girl who becomes a hero in a short amount of time and doesn’t really realize it. In The Hunger Games, the main character, Katniss Everdeen, experience most of these steps. One of the first steps in “The Hero’s Journey” is Call to Adventure. This step is the point in a person’s life when he/she is first given notice that everything is going to change, whether they know it or not. Katniss begins this step when she takes Primrose’s, her sister, place as the female tribute of District 12. “I volunteer! I volunteer as tribute.” (Page 22). Once she said that she realized that her whole life was about to change because she entered the Hunger Games. Soon after she volunteers, she meets up with her mom and Prim. She gives them her final goodbye as she says to her mom “You can’t clock out and leave Prim on her own. There’s no me now to keep you both alive.” (Page 35). Katniss knows she won’t make it out of there alive so she tells her mom to take care of......

Journey

...Depth and Weight Wendy Reyes Journey into Literature Instructor Alex Vuilleumier August 19, 2013 Depth and Weight When it came time for me to choose a poem to write about I pondered the thought and when I came across “How Do I Love Thee” it was the one that stood out the most that I was most engaged in. It speaks of an unconditional love of a marriage that one woman had for her husband something that every young girl one day wishes to have. In her poem Elizabeth Barrett Browning considers attitudes, actions, and responses that make love (marriage relationships) meaningful on "this side" of death and prospectively infinite on "the other side."(Clungston 2010). The world has always been as rich and varied as it is at this moment. Wealth and poverty, joy and pain, peace and struggle have always existed side by side. The history of human life is the history of each person’s journey from birth to death. When we study history; we are always reading someone’s interpretation or argument. There’s much we can learn from other’s stories. Yet to be fully human is to escape the neat outlines of such a story. We immerse ourselves in life; we are surrounded by it. The poem is considered attitudes, actions, and responses that make love (marriage relationships) meaningful on this side of death. The sonnet is a highly structured form of lyric poetry with different specifications for Italian (Petrarchan) sonnet and for the English (Shakespearean) sonnet. ......

A Journey

...”A Journey” is a short story by Colm Tóibín. It’s written in 2006. The plot is told by a 3rd person omniscient narrator. The composition of the short story is in chronological order with flashbacks. The story begins in a flashback where we are introduced to David’s fear of presence. David is an unsteady boy who is afraid of life. To overcome his fear he keeps asking questions about life and people’s presence in the world. The oil painting, Interior with Woman and Child, on picture 1 by Paul Mathey from 1890 could be an illustration of David – a sad, alone boy who don’t feel secure. Who just stands waiting for the next thing to happen? Mrs. Redmond is taking care of him. David feels safe when he is near her: “Often, when Mary went down to the cottage to collect him, he did not want to come home. But then, once he was back in his own house, he would start to smile again and follow her around asking her questions or, when he was older, telling her what had happened to him at school”[1]. You can tell that he is secure when he is with Mrs. Redmond because he likes staying with her. You can also tell from the quotation above that he looks up to her mother and thinks that she has a large knowledge. He is embarrassed of his stay at the hospital. He can’t look her mother in her eyes afterwards: “… and for a quick second she caught his eye. He looked away”. David’s mother, Mary, has thick blonde hair and a large-boned face. She wants......

Heroes Comparison

...Throughout history, society has become accustomed with what they believe a hero should be but as each generation passes, this thought has shifted. Whether an immortal God with superhuman abilities or an average person who is giving everything they have to defend his or her people, heroes will rise when needed. The stories of Beowulf, Achilles, and Aeneas provide the reader with an example of what society of that time viewed a hero as and how they can compare with one another. Homer’s Iliad shows the reader whom ancient society believed a hero to be. It was written in a time when society relied on those strong enough and brave enough to rule the people. This was perfect for the character, Achilles, because in the Iliad he is described to be “godlike” (Iliad, 131) and “swift-footed” (Iliad, 121) suggesting he had superhuman traits such as strength and speed. These qualities worked to his benefit in battle and give him the “Hero” title he deserved. His story tells of his success on the battlefield and his defeat over Hector. Even though Achilles was seen as a hero to his people, he was not always emotionally sound. Achilles once gave up his wife, Breseis, to stop the god Apollo from sending a plague upon the Greek army. When the plague stopped, the battle roared on but Achilles did not participate. He was angered that his wife and prized possession was taken from him. It was not until his best friend, Patrocius, was killed that Achilles, out of complete fury, joined back in...

Heroes

...Prompt: Again and again we hear the complaint that we have no heroes anymore. Heroes—people who should be admired for their great courage or noble achievements—are No longer recognized in our modern world. Many people, in fact, believe that heroes existed Only in the past. But this belief is wrong. Because more praise is given to the latest Technological innovation than to one individual’s heroic achievements, we may not be Aware of our heroes, but we do have them. Assignment: Is it possible to be a hero in the modern world? Hero exists. Hero evolves. Large or small, strong or weak, tactful or stubborn, they are always around. Modern heroes are not known for extraordinary physical strength or valor, yet modern heroes abound in today's world. In our era and more than anytime before, every single citizen can champion, and every single person can choose to be a hero; he is doctor, teacher, policeman, or President of a country, big or small. We do have heroes such as Steve Jobs and Bill Gates. Juggernauts of the technological world, they are responsible for many technological advances. Yet Mr. XYZ, Susie and Joe, millions of people you are unheard of yet fully actively live around you, do make contributions just as significant. Without them, we won’t be able to enjoy our lives as we do now, including water from that tap, bread on our tables, cozy reading on our beds late in the night, and etc.  I remember that the Time Magazine's person of the year one of the years......

The Journey

...THE JOURNEY The sun slowly rose on Tuesday morning. The bags were packed and at the bottom of the stairs; the cat had gone to the grandparent’s house yesterday, mum and dad were up bright and early. The smell of bacon and eggs wafted through the house. But, to me, none of this mattered; it was 4a.m, I was tired. I had not slept because I thought it would be clever to stay up all night, and being a grumpy stereotypical teenager, I longed to stay in bed until 12 o’clock. It was the holidays for God’s sake! Why should I be up earlier than I am for school? The smell of bacon seeped under the door of my room and over powered the smell of old socks that lurked menacingly under the bed. But still I did not move, it was far, far, far to early! It was the third cry from dad that made me lumber out of bed. Slowly, still half asleep, I got dressed, having to take my t-shirt off once, as I had put it on inside out the first time. I lugged my body into the bathroom and washed my face, cold water trickled down my back giving me icy chills. I cleaned my teeth and then I trudged down the stairs. The smell of bacon became intoxicating as I neared the door, I needed a hit, and bacon was my drug. I slowly ate and took in all the pleasure I could as it was going to be plane food later. Mum rushed manically around the house checking she’d packed everything and nagging my ear off. The taxi arrived at 4:20 am. Still asleep I dragged the bags towards the car. It was going to be two hours......

Heroes

...Nicollette Digmi A hero is someone who is brave, trustworthy, and reliable. This is the kind of person we look up to. Some of them may be legendary, while others are everyday life-savers. Heroes are typically on quests often to help others, they are ethical and strong and responsible leaders. A hero could be anyone who has these qualities. Beowulf and Martin Luther King Jr. both meet their criteria because they share the same heroic characteristics: they were both on quests, ethical, strong responsible leaders. Beowulf and Martin Luther King Jr. were both on a quest. For example, in Beowulf, the main character, Beowulf, is on a quest to help Hrothgar save his village by defeating Grendel. This means that Beowulf came from Geatland to save a village even though he wasn’t guaranteed a reward. Similarly, Martin Luther King Jr. was on a quest to stop racism and segregation between white and colored people. For example, he stood up to the white people and makes it as public as possible that he wants to change the way society is for the good of other people. In other words Martin Luther King Jr. and Beowulf share a heroic characteristic in that they both go on quests to create change for the benefit of others. Beowulf and Martin Luther Jr. were also ethical. For example, in Beowulf, Beowulf is a good king to his people and ends up fighting a dragon and dying for his people. This means that he was ethical and it contributed to him being a great hero. Likewise Martin......

... T. Kelley Professor Fox English II, 11 am Due: 30 Nov 2012 Heroes After more than 10 years of combat, the media has given many soldiers the title of hero. Jessica Lynch was one Soldier who was given the title hero. Was she truly a hero? What actions merited such a label? Pat Tillman also received the coveted title of hero, despite much controversy. Pat Tillman’s label of heroism occurred because of his strong social status. However, the word hero in Tillman’s case was misused to disguise actual events or cover up the misfortunes of war. Shoshona Johnson would be called a hero as well. Shoshana Johnson and Lynch were captured the same day but because of race, one hero would receive more accolades than the other. These soldiers wanted to share the truth, but media’s opportunity to transform them into hero took precedence. All of these heroes received differential treatment based on their gender, race or social status. Jessica Lynch seemed to be the perfect candidate to depict as an American Hero. Lynch is 5’6, 130 lbs. with blonde hair and blue eyes (Fluharty). With Barbie doll like qualities, Jessica not only served as an American Soldier, but possessed the beauty necessary to attract attention of viewers and develop a great story. The War on Terrorism has allowed news anchors to televise and participate in more combat related events than ever before, yet truth is often skewed to give a better news line story. The events that led to her capture in Iraq in......

Tragic Heroes

...Adeola Mike-Irabor English 1302: Composition 2 David Glen Smith, Instructor November 29, 2012 Research Paper Miss Emily Grierson and Eveline The family and society’s expectation of a woman has led to some women becoming tragic heroes and anti-heroes who battled consistently with their true identity. Literary works of William Faulkner in the short story, "A Rose for Emily", and James Joyce’s "Eveline", reflects the negative impact of these expectations. Based on information, culled from Dr David Smith’s notes, tragic heroes are driven and obsessed with past deeds or by fate, they are neither entirely good nor entirely bad and are fated to cause grief to individuals or to the community, they are often leaders in the community or head of family (2). Faulkner shows these common traits of tragic hero in Miss Emily Grierson; a protagonist in self-exile from the modern world, locked away in her decaying mansion (3). In James Joyce’s Eveline, a protagonist is revealed as tragic hero who endures a dramatic and tragic life full of conflicts, but Smith thinks otherwise, he refers to her as an anti-hero and is of the opinion that antihero should not be confused with tragic hero because, “existentialist believed modern life does not allow the existence of a true hero. Modern life dehumanizes everyone”(3), short of this, Eveline is a classic example of a tragic hero. William Faulkner’s Miss Emily and James Joyce’s Eveline are women who in the quest of fulfilling the roles......

...all of us. Students groomed their rooms to give a jaw-dropper gift to their beloved teachers. Some set a red carpet top with rose petals and end it by making their teacher walk on it like a queen. Other students also prepared this kind of 'blindfold surprise' where students will blindfold their teachers and guide him/her to their room and show what they've got. All students did a lot of efforts to show how they love their teacher so much even though they act always like wild animals in a jungle. They are our nurturers, communicators, readers, writers, mathematicians, scientists, leaders, disciplinarians and also our parents in our second home. In one way or another, we should say thank you to our teacher and at the same time our heroes who molds our juvenile yet fragile minds to prepare and create a better future. ...

Heroes

...different answer from everyone you ask; being a hero means different things to different people. A hero in my eyes, could be a traitor to some one else. It can actually be a very touchy subject to some. An obvious example would be our soldiers, fighting everyday for our freedoms. To most, these men and women are undoubtably heroes. But there was a time not long ago, that soldiers returning from Vietnam were ridiculed, and treated like traitors, because many people didn't believe in the war they were fighting. Does that make them any less a hero? I don't think so, they had no choice in the reasons for war. In the Nation of Islam, many extremists believe that those who are willing to strap themselves down with explosives, and commit suicide in public places, are the greatest form of hero. To me, that just seems absurd. I don't think it takes fighting in a war, or even taking extreme action, to be considered a hero. I like to try to see the hero in everyday people. Any one can be a hero. To me, just reaching out and making a difference in someone's life, is an act of heroism. I'm lucky enough to say that I know some of these heroes. And they have restored my faith in humanity. My friend Jason was paralyzed from the waist down 16 years ago, after a 4-wheeler accident. He was always the cool kid; handsome, smart, always had the nicest cars and prettiest girlfriend. On top of that, he was always a really nice guy, it was like people just......

...Do Heroes exist in the present day? Heroes can be found in every person. However, heroes do not have superhuman ability but they do what they do for the greater good. I believe a Hero is someone that shows great strength courage and is willing to fight for justice. A Hero is wise and trustworthy. Heroes not only exist in the past but they exist in the present day as well. People that are part of the judiciary system could be considered modern day heroes, if they don't shoot and kill innocent people. They defend the community from unjust acts, they protect the community from people that steal, people that murder, people that commit fraud, people that kidnap etc. A Hero could even be someone that has authority. Some examples would include a police officer, a teacher, a lawyer, a judge, a psychologist or even a counselor. I believe strongly that a Hero is a person that helps someone even in the face of danger. A psychologist could indeed be someone’s Hero because he/she can make people realize their issues. They could even help solve those issues and helped you become a better person in the process. In conclusion I believe Heroes do in fact exist in the present day; We just don’t recognize them but they are there. Heroes can be found in EVERY person like your best friend, your cousin, your brother, your sister, your uncle, your boyfriend. They might have helped you. For example they could have helped you get out of a fight, helped you control your temper when you......

...Heroes Many remember when they were little and would see a fire truck go by they would think to their self that’s what I want to do when I get older. Many children when asked what they want to do as a career normally say a firefighter or police officer. There are many reasons to be both, but being a firefighter can be an easy thing to do. There are many career and volunteer fire departments throughout the nation, even some are mixed between career and volunteer. Firefighting is more than a career or job whether it be volunteer or paid it is a calling. Many people would not go into a house that’s on fire, while everyone else is running out. Firefighters are dedicated to helping others and in some cases like today in Massachusetts three firefighters were trapped when a structure collapsed that they were working in to extinguish the fire. They were all rescued after the collapse and two of them made it out with serious injuries and another gave the ultimate sacrifice. Today unfortunately showed the dangers that the job has and how firefighters put their lives on the line every day. Most believe that a firefighter is a hero and most firefighter’s say it is just part of their job, it is proven daily that it is more than a job they are heroes. In the United States there are over 1.1 million volunteer firefighters that is two thirds of all fire fighters. In the nation yearly the amount of emergency calls increase significantly the amount of volunteer firefighters has dropped......

The author is unknown at this time. This paper is not intended for the public. This is my way of dealing with the sometimes overwhelming sadness that I face. The Journey The pages of life start out with you lying on your back unable to take care of even the simplest need. All of that is provided for by the parent until later in life when you start crawling, walking, and eventually running through life. My journey began traveling up and down the highways as a child in East Texas working through what was to be my childhood home in the piney woods. It is where I learned the spirit of being an adventuress child. I lived 15 miles outside of Livingston, TX adjacent to or actually just past the run down old sub-division of Indian Springs named for the natural springs there. Many of my friends and even some of my family lived there. I ran up and down those old red dirt roads most of my childhood playing, fishing, and learning all I thought there was to know about being a man. My grandparents lived there and it was where I always loved to be. My grandfather affectionately known as “Papa” was my hero. I did not know much about his past other than that he served in World War II. There house was a three bedroom that had been turned into four red brick house surrounded by the tall pine...
