Of course, things can happen before you are ready for Change. Something unexpected can happen while you are still practicing the Transforming Idea from an earlier change. It may arrive when you are in the middle of Chaos. Each stage of the Satir Change Model has a purpose. Even though our responses seem painful and confusing, there are sound reasons for each stage.
Reading through Dodd’s tale and how he comes to terms that he will likely not survive but still marches is admirable. The story reveals how his bravery, problem solving capabilities, and determination played a key role to overcoming hardships. Riddled in and out of the book are moral decisions that play on the readers emotions and own ethic 's. Such as feeding the local boy while his own rations are meager. I believe Dodd to be a content person however his commitment to duty makes him maintain a more rigid shell.
In Donna Tartt’s The Goldfinch, the protagonist Theo Decker experiences many hardships that cause him to make questionable decisions. Through his struggles, Theo experiences the natural human tendency towards kindness both within himself and through others. There are many people in his life who aid in guiding Theo towards his inner morality and allowing him to discover the inherent goodness within himself. Boris, Hobie and the other less prominent characters present throughout The Goldfinch represent aspects of modern civilization, ultimately demonstrating the inherently good nature of humankind as they guide, support and comfort Theo in order to overcome his obstacles and find his inner integrity. The first person who exhibits kindness towards Theo, and in turn, guides him through many obstacles is Boris.
Willy Jose Montañez Velilla is very complex to describe in just words, but as far as words can describe a man, he can be every adjective in the dictionary. Willy is every abstract idea whether good or less good, but never bad because “bad” is relative. He is an older brother, sometimes maybe even the father figure in his home. Due to this, he has grown to be independent, caring, loving, and every other quality an older brother or father contains. He like many others has goals for his life.
Isolated in his vast empire of a home, Kane uttered only one word before he passed: “rosebud.” The whole country knows about this news publisher’s life, but for some, his life story is not enough. For the duration of the film, a reporter called Thompson (William Alland) tries to debunk what this last word, “rosebud,” could have meant. Could it be a person? A place? Maybe an item he held close?
Our protagonist even mentions receiving a “tiny metal cross”, the same one his father carried in Vietnam. This small memento probably left an impact on him, as it has on me. The strongest example of the united nature this talk had on the main character was him relaying the story. He says, “We weren’t in Iraq long before I told Old Man my dad’s story.” The story and the moment obviously meant something to the main character for him to feel the need to tell the story to others. This feeling of closeness often makes people feel obligated to keep their story close to them, however, sometimes it has the opposite effect and people feel as if they must be
Respect, Honor, and Truth Chivalry is a word that is not often heard today. Although chivalry has seemed to diminish in our society, it is something that must be exceedingly alive and active in everyone’s life. The code of chivalry for knights in the middle ages emphasized bravery, generosity in victory, living one’s life so that it is worthy of respect and honor, and living for freedom, justice, and all that is good. Chivalry may be a foreign concept to many, but it is exemplified in my day to day life. Daily I live by God’s word and my personal code of chivalry; I am kind and compassionate to everyone I encounter regardless of the situation and I will be eager to help so that I can make others’ lives easier.
Unlike some leaders, I wanted to be seen and not heard. my methods have led me to a very successful assignment as a Platoon Sergeant. My leadership style encouraged my Soldiers to excel my achieving the highest physical fitness scores and the highest evaluation scores. Also while deployed, I thought that it was necessary to change the way in which we conducted certain drills. By taking this risk I ensured that every Soldier returned home safely.
Others would argue that no one family should lose all of its sons to war. Saving Private Ryan was the right decision because a leader has to regard the Army as a group of individuals, not as a pool of resources. General George C. Marshall is presented the dilemma of searching out Private Ryan or allowing him to fight in the war and potentially dying. For military leaders, this decision is very regular and made often in war. This was a special situation because Pvt Ryan had three other brothers that also signed up to fight in WWII and all died.
Their lives would change forever if any of these scenarios ever happened. Technology can be helpful if used for the right reasons. If it is used wrong, lives would change for the worst because one person wanted to experience a different life. A person should think more about what they need in their existence instead of what they
The topic this past week that will be most beneficial to my ministry is the session with Commissioner Fred Ruth. Commissioner Ruth’s officership was more than a wonderful story; it was account of life that put pride aside, was completely available, and of someone who was fully obedient to his calling. There were many points made by Commissioner Ruth that I will consider for my ministry as an officer. The first point made was that “one would never know the impact that we can make, if we make ourselves available.” Commissioner Ruth presented several examples of how even the most ordinary moments in his life made some of the greatest impact. Some of the most impactful examples of this was the women giving birth to twins under the bridge that
Ever heard of Native American Code Talkers? Many in America haven’t because the military released their existence in the late 90’s, which I believe is wrong considering they were such a big contribution to the U.S. winning WWII. The Navajo indians before the war were a peaceful and kind tribe. The Navajo tribe is split into many clans which you are born into. In order to marry in the Navajo tribe you have to marry someone in another tribe.
American Sniper: The Autobiography of the most lethal sniper in U.S. Military History. Christopher Scott, Chris, Kyle was a legend for all who know his story. Could you imagine leaving your country for a dangerous war zone that could potentially result in you coming home in a casket? Most likely thats a no, considering now only one percent of the population serves in the Unites States Armed Forces. Chris Kyle has been a big part of what convinces me to serve in the military, and serve with pride.
These are the two big roads for me. Both could have many burdens and pleasures, and I can only guess what those would be. I have to eventually make a choice, which would have it consequences. But life will happen and so I have to choose and choose all the way. The decisions we make change our lives.
