He had no common sense, and he had no business going into Alaska with his Romantic silliness. He made a lot of mistakes based on arrogance. I don’t admire him at all for his courage nor his noble ideas. Really, I think he was just plain crazy,” shows that Shaun believes Chris had no common sense in his doing for leaving society for the wild. I agree with Callarman’s position of thinking “ he had no common sense” and that he was “bright and Ignorant” because Chris thinks he did not have much to offer in his society, ditched all his possessions to take a trip into the Alaskan Wilderness and did not have much common sense or survival skills.

Although they were tired from the voyage, they had to immediately begin building homes. In his book, Of Plymouth Plantation, William Bradford mentions that they arrived to an area where there was no place for them to unwind after their voyage, “... they had now no friends to welcome them nor inns to entertain or refresh their weather-beaten bodies; no houses or much less towns to repair to, to seek for succor” (holt 123). They did not have friends to salute them and the natives in that area were inhospitable. There was very little food during winter. Most Puritans would starve due to food shortages.
“It has a rating of 8.5 stars and has been nominated for three prime time Emmys” (IMDb). I focus on the first season of the show because it explains the reason that the brothers become hunters. The boys mother mysteriously dies in a fire their father knows the
In both plays, they find they can only ever improve their circumstances through hardship: in Fences, Troy was able to purchase a home because of his brother’s injury and permanent disability from the war. In A Raisin in the Sun, the family is only able to move into a better home because of Big Walter’s death. The message is clear: black people are not allowed to succeed on their own merits, and advancing their situations comes at the cost of blood. Walter, powerless, says, “I’m thirty-five years old; I been married eleven years and I got a boy who sleeps in the living room—and all I got to give him is stories about how rich white people live.”
The dark reality struck me as I realized how inconsiderate and foolish I had been for my fifteen years of existence. I thought my mind was so developed, yet I never learned how to feel compassion for others, something that even the simplest man could do. It’s a cheesy thing to say, regarding the topic of this letter, however I can truly say that the lunch altered my views of Remembrance day. That day, I relearned how to feel sympathy, for those both alive and fallen. I learned about the experiences of the soldiers, and most importantly, I learned the true meaning of Remembrance day; to assist those who have assisted us, and to let the others rest in

Despite knowing the risks of this stunt, he continued with it anyway. Similar to McCandless, Knievel was being reckless, which had affected others around him. McCandless had left his family to travel to Alaska and live in the wild in search of enlightenment. After his death, word about his journey spread around the country. Many viewed McCandless to be egotistical due to the fact that he left his entire life to pursue his personal desires, and he didn’t think about how others would feel after he left, or if he did, he didn’t care.
