Since young, although I have honored my parents by obeying most of their instructions. Still it have never crossed my mind that children are not allowed in making decision. Truly, it does sound cruel in initial. All this while, I thought children can make their decision like the food choices they want or clothes they wear. I didn’t expect that such an act would eventually reap the bad habit in their decision making and thus their life.
In the Control Room, Captain Ernst Lehmann, Captain Heinrich Bauer, and Watch Officer Knut Eckener and I would help each other navigate across the land. Navigating the airship was similar to navigating a vessel, it consisted of a group effor which was why I got the intership. They saw a bright young man like me and gave me a chance! As the day began, I wou... ... middle of paper ... ...oor of the control room with the other pilots. I thought that I was dead man the second I jumped out considering the fall but survived.
This was the only way. A touch on his shoulder startled him; he looked up” Sir, we have landed”. He looked at the airhostess smiling and waiting patiently. He removed his earphone. He could not believe what he had heard.
Runners brought messages to and from the Indian sachem’s home. Halfway through their journey, they heard screams. Little Hawk ran toward them and saw a white man lying crushed under a big tree and another man trapped by his leg u... ... middle of paper ... ...ocked into silence, staring at [Little Hawk]’s shattered chest and the bright blood, and at [his] face with the wide open eyes that could no longer see.” I can’t relate with Little Hawk either, because he had to survive three months in the woods. I don’t even know how to make a fire, yet survive every cold night for three months. But I can relate to John when he believed something but other people believed something else.
“The rules we know, even the ones we intuitively feel, are by no means the rules we always follow.” This implies that a good judgment is pretty reliable starting with man on man. However, those standards we know, and the ones we understand, are in no way shape or form those standards we take after. I agree with Kluger, our parents could teach us morality, but doesn’t simply mean we going to follow what we have learned as soon as we walk out the house. We may know it’s bad or good but the environment or your mood will determine how that day will go. My mom has always taught my siblings and me to respect people doesn’t matter the age or gender, to treat people the way you want to be treated.
Everyone may not like me or respect me, but as long as I love and respect myself life would go on. Although, I was the constant topic of ridicule, I never let it affect my school work. My education was very significant to me, because I knew I would make a big impact on the world if I obtained a good education. My family was another important value to me, because nobody was as encouraging and supportive of me as my family. The most important lesson I learned over the years was that I shouldn’t let anybody have control of my life, except for
And the answer is “to learn from our experiences without having to repeat them endlessly”. That’s why very few moments in our life can repeat exactly. And when we share the personal histories, it helps to keep the relationships going, but, as a matter of fact, what really happened is not that dramatic and critical as the way we talk about it afterwards. Let’s imagine talking about memories from childhood, and suddenly somebody interrupts us and says that it couldn’t happened and you are wrong. What are you going to do?
They should be able to somehow notice if there are any sudden changes in a particular child’s behavior. It might not be noticeable at first, but, I am sure, sooner or later some signs will be displayed. The teacher should right away meet with the parent of that particular child and advise them of his or her observations. Sometimes teachers do not exactly do this because in some cases the parents overreact and say that the teacher is just knit-picking on their child. It’s understandable because no parent suspects or even wants to think that their kid could be prone to depression or any other mental disease, for that matter.
Knowing I had some time to play with, I started counting floor tiles until something caught my eye towards the back of the room. It was a poster of a lunatic, gleefully falling from an airplane. I got closer and read the caption, “Want the thrill of a life time? Skydive Mosel Bay! First Timers Welcome!” Against my better judgment, I turned to my dad and, pointing to the poster, begged him, “Hey Dad, I don’t care what else we do while we’re here, but I have to do this!” To my pleasant surprise he turned around and grinned, “Okay!
Despite the fact that he agreed to the interview and seemed eager to talk to me, he seemed uncomfortable during our conversation. He indicated to me that he wanted to get started right away. I was given the impression that he was a guy that did not like to waste time, but instead liked to get right down to business. I started asking him questions and I could see his eyes light up as he was talking about his zeal towards flying. He was like a burst dam flooding me with the story of his life and how he became his dream.
