System archetypes are patterns of behavior that recurring or we seeing happen again and again in any system or an organization. As Senge (2006) explained systems archetypes will always suggest areas of high and low leverage changes. Identifying these areas not only deepen our understanding of problems and challenges but also enable us to quickly identify the dominating behavioral patterns.

Nothing was more important to him than those drugs. It took years before he really recovered. As it stands now, after getting clean, he does have a relationship with his family, but after being out of work for years, it is doubtful he will ever get another job.

Background Mike is a 15 year old boy who has been battling cancer for 8 years. He was in remission until he was 13 years old, but within the last two years, his disease relapsed. This relapse resulted in numerous rounds of chemotherapy that left him feeling weak and sick.
He might not make it, they said, and for over a month, he couldn’t even say one word. That’s what made me think about the choices we make when it comes to our health. At 45 years old, my father had already suffered two strokes, what was in store for me? That’s when I realized that being healthy is not just an option for me; it’s a way of living. Why did my dad have two strokes so young?
It is currently and has been a right to smoke in public, however is it morally right knowing that you (smokers) are the reason 53,800 people die each year? It is not such a gruesome thing to think about, until you hear the heart breaking experiences that people have had with second hand smoking. Leandro Josue Zuniga, my cousin born August 2nd, 2013, lost his fight to lung cancer the day of completing his 6 months on this earth. All of these cases are heart breaking to hear, and they happen 53,800 times a year. This second hand smoke is also linked to leukemia, according to the American Cancer Society.
Not only have these lessons prepared me and made me a perfect candidate for this summer program, but also prepared me for the environment of Duke University in the future. When I was eleven years old, my role model, my hero, my daddy, lost his six year long battle with colon cancer and passed away. It was a long and agonizing journey that my entire family suffered through. I did not realize it at the time, but this painful experience had taught me many lessons that most people probably will not learn in their lifetime. One of the lessons this tragedy taught me was that if I could live through something as traumatic as a parent suffering and eventually dying, then I knew that I could get through anything that life threw at me, no matter how
I met middle age man, who was suffering from severe depression. When talking about his life, he divulged that at a young age his mother had been diagnosed with breast cancer. Over the following 4 years, he watched his mother struggle to beat the disease before finally passing away. In his grief, he had sought the help and guidance from a clergy member who was a family friend throughout his mother’s illness. However, instead of being a figure of support, this clergyman sexually abused the boy throughout his teenage years.
Patient report that both his parents died of cancer. The patient was asked about his statement while in route to the hospital where he sated, "If I had a gun I 'd be dead.

Whether it be losing a family member or a close friend, having a bad accident, or even losing everything and becoming homeless, hardships all influence a person's life, some more than others, but they all have some sort of impact. They usually can impact in a way of warning, like if someone lost a relative due to someone drunk driving, then they would know not to drink and drive, for it made their relative die, why would they want to make that happen to somebody else. Therefore, hardships can influence a person's life because they help you make better choices. Alex Gonzales, for example, is a rapper who encourages kids to stay in school and not do what he did. He grew up in the streets, so it was easy for him to get influenced by the people
Importance of Violence Violence is more effective and necessary than other actions such as words during a fight against someone. In Ender’s Game, a boy named Ender Wiggin trains for a war in the Battle and Command School and encounters fights where his best option is violence. Violence is necessary because people need violence in order to win, to protect them, and because the lack of violence leads to loss. Violence is useful for winning a fight for example during the fight against Stilson, “Ender knew the unspoken rules of manly warfare even though he was only six. It was forbidden to strike an opponent who lay helpless on the ground; only an animal would do that,”(Card pg.7).
