To brick up our hearts, we shield away everything that is going on in the outside world because we feel pain. The heart feels all our emotions, and often times, when we get hurt, we want to curl up and ignore everything. However, our lives do not last forever. Approximately, we only have about two billion heartbeats in a lifetime, so when something bad happens, we have to pick ourselves up and keep going. We can’t just shut down forever, or else how are you going to enjoy the good moments in life?
Fault and redemption. What do these two words really do in our lives? Do they give us another chance or are they just concepts that we want to follow? In the world we live in, one fault can often make or break something in our lives, but when granted with redemption, we don’t always take it as seriously as needed and soon our fault becomes someone else’s pride. Sir Gawain’s faults can be a constant reminder of the mistakes we all make as humans along with the quote, “It is clear then that there can be no redemption without fault, just as one is unable to return from exile without first being sent into one.

I was given the opportunity to submit assignment #2 early, and resubmit assignment #1 at the assigned due date for assignment #2.
Everybody has desires that constantly weigh over their heads, pushing them to be diligent in all their endeavors, but what would you do if you knew that one day you would no longer have the opportunity to fulfill these desires? Everybody lives their lives so focused on the end goal that they are oblivious to the world around them, and the sad part is that in some cases the end goal is unattainable or never reached because the person dies.

Both Stuntz and Gopnik believe that the Bill of Rights could be the cause of the unstable justice system that plagues our communities today. Personally I don 't believe this is the problem because there will always be loopholes in every system. How can we run a system without a basis or foundation to lead us. The process and procedure can be beneficial to all if done correctly; all systems have flaws, but must learn to cope with
Isn’t it scary how one word, one look, or one moment can change everything? Tom Ziegler once said, “You have to fight through some bad days to earn the best days of your life”, yet I don’t think this is feasible to my situation because it’s impossible to earn just one good day when you’re fighting for your life every single day. No, my story isn’t about me being affected a from cancer or an unfortunate holocaust destruction such as a fire. My story is much worst and the pain will cause you to grimace in fear and sympathy.

Losing is something everyone experiences. No one can know what winning is without losing. When people lose they always seek for an answer to why they lost. They usually blame someone or something because it is part of human nature. People always strive for perfection and refuse to believe they are imperfect.
In life, trust can easily be taken for granted, but whenever a life-threatening situation comes along, we seem to believe in each other. The story shows that when someone loses their trust and faith in you, you must rebuild that trust, and that can sometimes be tough. The story creates a great suspense and as the reader, you do not feel satisfied with the ending, because you want the story to end well – that they make it home safely and that they have gained a lifelong bond with each other – but perhaps this fictional story is a reflection on life – you never know where trust or mistrust leads
Sadly, this is the harsh reality, but even in this reality, we see even ourselves getting through a barrier. Life isn’t a game where you only have one try. Even when we stumble a thousand times, we can still manage to get back up, and it’s that thing about life that leaves me in awe. Life is a series of failures and lessons. Sometimes, even failures are
A reminder will always be left behind to remind people of what happened. Reconstruction often cannot even throw things back together properly, leaving the issue just as bad or maybe even worse than before the incident. No matter how intelligent or strategically mastered the person or people coming up with the plan for reconstruction are, said plan
In “Pleasantville” and “As in the beginning” the characters experience difficult situations, making all the things being hard to conclude, or come back for the natural state. Both have something to miss, about the old part of life. They could give up, but they didn’t, because they knew that all the things will be better or get in a good place in the end, but not for sure.

They were differents, they knew and saw things that no one could see, making they showing the truth about the world, because in this ville, the fire didn’t exist.
Since the beginning of time, almost everyone was raised to fear failure. In workplaces, schools, and social groups, failure was stigmatized even though it is unbelievably inevitable. The thing is, failure is the only way to learn and return stronger. Particularly, the importance of redemption is illustrated in Sir Gawain and the Green Knight translated by Simon Armitage and also in the book Les Miserables by Victor Hugo. According to Webster’s Dictionary, the definition of redeeming is “serving to offset or compensate for a defect.” Many may claim that someone would never need to “compensate” if they did not have a defect in the first place.
We have all encountered some degree of failure in our lives, some worse than others. No one is or ever will be a perfect human being. Failure is certain in our lives among all questionable events. Times of failures are events we can learn from even in the smallest ways. Whether it be a failing grade, not making a sports team, or not winning a game, there is always a lesson to be learned.
Let me tell you something you already know life isn 't always about sunshine and rainbows, sometimes it can be really hard and not always the greatest. It isn’t always easy when challenging yourself to accomplish new goals. One goal I am working on is becoming a barrel racer. I am seeing a lot of failure and I don 't give up on my dreams because it is my goal to keep on going till I achieve my goals that I set for myself. Why one is because of fear and failure and what if it doesn 't work out for myself and the fear of not getting to be successful at my dream.
