An interpersonal conflict I observed during the show Naval Criminal Investigative Service (NCIS) “Deja Vu” occurred when Special Agent Anthony Dinozzo was in conflict with helping a co-worker Special Agent Timothy McGee. McGee expressed his struggles with being cold due to the weather being below freezing temperatures and the power being out at his apartment.

Bevan and Sole (2014) noted, “Competition style conflict involves a high concern for yourself and a low concern for the other party in the conflict “(p. x).

Life in America James Baldwin is one of the most inspirational writers to live, so it comes to no surprise you can find similarities in other writers’ work. In one of his better writings, “My Dungeon Shook: Letter to My Nephew on the One Hundredth Anniversary of the Emancipation,” James Baldwin warns his nephew white people are going to hate him simply because he’s black.

You Must Read This Book I related to Jon Krakauer’s book, Into Thin Air, when the deadly storm caused heroic guides and clients to quickly rally whoever they could to save themselves and nearby clients in a safe and efficient manner. On Saturday morning before Memorial Day in 2012, my home was struck by lightning during a fairly calm storm. There was no warning at all, just like the dreadful blizzard on Mount Everest. I had to recover from a blinding light and ground shattering explosion to realize my family needed to get out of the house.
