Although, if it were her intention of expulsion, she questions why the owner didn't chase the homeless out of her own shop then gift him with food. In the end, she connects these scenes to the common response to a hero’s fall during Greek Tragedy which was “There, but for the grace of God, go I.” used to acknowledge good fortune in avoiding the misfortune. “Could it be that the homeless, like those ancients, are reminding us of our common humanity? She answers this question stating that this is true, but homelessness doesn't end and the homeless do not go home. By questioning her audience, Ascher implies that compassion is inevitable to not
There are many similar and different ideas between General Colin Powell 's speech Kids Need Structure and Maria Montessori’s Dr. Montessori’s Handbook. Their opinions are on opposite spectrums. Powell believes that applying structure is the key to nurturing children, while Maria Montessori thinks that the best way to treat a child is with respect and allowing many freedoms. There is great disparity between Colin Powell and Maria Montessori’s views about the actions a teacher should take in order to sufficiently educate a child. Powell believes teachers should be strict and obeyed without question.
Fisher begins her speech to the Republican party and struggling families by discussing how widespread the struggle of silence is for those infected and her own experiences of being shut out due to her disease through the use of a metaphor. In which she employed a serious tone appealing to the emotions of those affected by the disease when saying “I asked the
Humanity is not born with an inherent evil that hold cruelty as William Golding believes; humanity is not hopeless. Humanity has the capacity to love and respond with compassion, and it is this aspect of our nature that we must embrace. To avoid a child or group of children murdering another child, humanity must unite as one to promote healthy relationships with parental figures. No child should be subject to unhealthy parental relationships that may include abuse. Golding ends his article with a plea, “God help us all,” (Golding) but we, as humans, must make an effort to save ourselves.
Is cultural competence more important than counseling competence (Sue text and lecture notes)? I believe that cultural competence and counseling competence go hand in hand. You can not experience counseling competence without being culturally competent. I do not believe that we can be unbiased as counselors but being aware of our bias is important in regards to cultural competence.
during its earliest beginnings. Our history teachers did not have us read more uplifting books written about slavery. They had us read books that were depressing and sad, but they showed slavery how it really was back then. This is the same thing. We learned about the way slavery was so that we would keep those memories and prevent that from ever happening again.
This makes the reader question did the people who left the community feel bad for the child, if so why didn't anyone who left attempt to save the child. This also makes the reader question did the people who left even feel bad for the child at all. These are all questions that Swift makes the reader think about when reading this short story. The author wants to know how the story is interpreted because she wants to know how her story is
Do not sail openly into port when you reach your home- country. Make a secret approach. Women, I tell you, are no longer to be trusted” (Homer 151). This quote foreshadows when Athena cloaks him into a beggar, not only was it too hide his identity from the suitors but it was also used to test the loyalty of his wife and see if the suitors had gotten to her. Another piece of wisdom Odysseus gains is his self control.
In ancient Greece, Antigone did not agree with King Creon's harsh law placed in order to prevent people from burying her late brother, giving him a peaceful afterlife. Similar to Antigone, Mohammed Bouazizi did not agree with Tunisia's government, taking a stand in 2010. Both of them pleaded for change and reform; Antigone pleads with King Creon after her conviction and Bouazizi pleaded with local municipal
A biblical worldview will effect everything I do in my life. One of the most important things is the way we treat and interact with others. It start with the way we think about others, if we know them or not we should see them through the eye of compassion.

She says that in order to have peace in the world, we must listen to what people have to say. Even if one does not agree, it is best to not walk away; it creates hostilities between the two people which will bite back in the long run. Pacifism is all about peace between people. The Church of the Brethren has strived to achieve and spread peace throughout the world.
Maybe by trying to show her that might help her understand that Dan might not be the best person for her. One of the most important things would be keeping a friendship with Hailley and make sure she knows she has someone to talk to, this could have a good impact on her knowing no matter what she will not be alone.
What they really want is something that will not upset them. They want to ignore reality and think of the possibilities that COULD happen to them. Whether it is a false hope or not is out of the question to them. We want to follow this particular person, in this case, Abraham out of curiosity. These “prophets” would reach out to people who are “vulnerable”, and say what they want to hear.
Ascher’s juxtaposition between Compassion & Fear Barbara Lazear Ascher, in “On Compassion” Gave two scenarios in which a woman gave a homeless man money when he had stared down the lady and her baby, questioning whether the offering was out of fear or compassion. Ascher then gives another scenario where a homeless man walks into a bread shop silently inside the shop. Moments later a french woman walks out of the kitchen with a hot cup a coffee and food to give to him. Ascher then questioned if the french woman gave the man food out of her heart or she just wanted him out. Out of fear of disturbing her customers and losing sales.
In 1980, Dr. Robert Plutchik, an author and psychologist, decided to get in touch with feelings. He constructed a theory of emotions, categorizing them as primary, secondary, or tertiary. In short, a primary emotion is an immediate response, while a secondary emotion is incited by the former, leading to the tertiary emotion, the most vulnerable to one’s control, and typically the most tenacious. Initially, it’s a chain reaction, with each emotion catalyzing its successor. In her essay, Barbara Lazear Ascher observes the behavior of her fellow New Yorker’s interactions with their homeless populace.
