In the article, "Desperation at sea" by Rebecca Zissou discusses how refugee 's are having to flee their homes because of war. First, the refugee 's are all going from Syria, Gambia, Somalia, Eritrea, and Sudan to Libya because of war, disease, poverty, etc. Also they have to cross the harsh heat and terrain of the Sahara desert just to get to Libya. After that, the refugee 's have to pay people to get them over to Europe for safety but they could get a very bad deal from sometimes very untrustworthy people. In addition, the so called smugglers might abandon them on the boat with little to no food, water, fuel, and in most conditions the refugee 's don 't know their way to Europe. Throughout the time that they are on the boats they become

The time when I was brave is when I save my friend. My friend would always wonder off with his bike and I would have to find him and see if he is ok. Then when I found him and later a car came by from a distance. I ran into my friend and grabbed him with his bike and ran back to the sidewalk. By showing bravery, I helped save my friends life because he was very close to losing it. Bravery could be illustrated by the The Character Connor from ¨Unwind¨ and the IRA sniper from “The Sniper” because they both risk their life in a dangerous situation.

Everyday people make decisions, some are made during life or death situations. Not everyone has to go to through a circumstance that is life or death, but some people do. Richard Connell once composed a fictional short story about a life or death situation. In Richard Connell’s short story “The Most Dangerous Game” large game hunter Sanger Rainsford is tested in the following ways: strong versus the weak, the value of life, and becoming what he fears. Nevertheless he made it through these challenges, but he also learned a few life lessons while doing so.
“The Man in the Water”’ by journalist Roger Rosenblatt was an article written for Time Magazine about a man who was never really named who, in an act of selflessness in a time of tragedy concerning an airplane crash in a freezing Potomac River, lost his life while ensuring the lives of other plane passengers. Rosenblatt wrote a compelling article about the unidentified man, pointing out how his act not only affected the outcome of his own life, but the lives of the strangers he then rescued. The article consists of not just what happened the day of the plane wreck concerning the plane passengers, including the unidentified man, but how it affected the other passengers’ lives for years to come probably and how the man’s actions affected others. The overall theme of Roger Rosenblatt’s article, the overall inherent message, is that selflessness is perhaps the most valuable gift to be given, even when the cost itself may be great.
Every Once and awhile, tragedy strikes, and the whole country sits still. On January 13th, 1982, Air Florida Flight 90 crashed. An event such as this one, though tragic, is sadly fairly common. Although, on January 13th, every soul in the united states had their eyes glued on the news channels, following the crash. There are many speculations about why this crash, in particular influenced the public so dramatically. On this day, a multitude of innocent people fell victim to the catastrophe, while some became heroes in the process. One man, known as the man in the water, had a particular pull on the hearts of the country. The man in the water showed a great deal of courage, strength, and selflessness in a time of disparity. The article, The Man in The Water, by Roger Rosenblatt, follows a central theme of heroism.
“Hunting? Good God, General Zaroff, what you speak of is murder,” exclaimed Sanger Rainsford. Oftentimes, the line between right and wrong is blurred. “The Most Dangerous Game” by Richard Connell is a story that discusses the line and how thin it can be drawn. Sanger Rainsford stands on one side of the line and General Zaroff on the other. Through his brave nature, Rainsford drives the book’s theme of sticking to one’s beliefs.
In Richard Connell’s “The Most Dangerous Game,” Sanger Rainsford is forced to test his survival skills while he is intensely hunted by an experienced war general named General Zaroff. In this story, Rainsford exhibits some very helpful characteristics like his resourcefulness, his strategic planning, and his ability to reason. As a result of Rainsford’s questioning the validity of General Zaroff’s hunting methods, he ended up playing in the game. Although I believe Rainsford is a very helpful, interesting, and dynamic character, at the end of the story, he must give up his own personal morals to win the game.
Imagine if you were born into a country filled with poverty, fear, anxiety, despair and sorrow. The pain and suffering you would go through every day was so violent that you and your family had given up on all measures of hope. Every day you would fear persecution and you couldn’t even feel safe in the comfort of your own home. But what if there was a sliver of hope of escaping this drama occurring in your homeland by leaving by boat. All this drama gone in a flash, wouldn’t you want to try? putting your life at risk, but anyways what is the point of staying back, where you are just suffering emotionally, psychologically and physically as the day passes. 51 million people worldwide and 800,000 people in Australia have experienced these feelings
Hundreds of thousands of refugees and migrants fleeing war or seeking new lives have flooded into Europe. Many countries are struggling to cope with the crisis.
Around the time after World War 1 on Ship-Trap Island, Rainsford, the protagonist of this fantastic prose, goes through a dynamic internal change. In his short story, “The Most Dangerous Game”, Richard Connell, portrays and paints a picture of how civilization and society can ever defeat a man’s murderous drive; the instinct in a man that pressures him on to perform a murderous task. Connell also touches on how the roles can change: the dominant can become subservient or less than, and how the forceful and strong minded can become the weaker ones. He tries to make the reader understand that to be successful, the hunter (the strong), must imitate the hunted (the weak); the man must act the animal, and civilization must impersonate and hide its brutality. The major conflict reflects dynamic change in the main
Ha is an example of the universal refugee experience because she goes through things that many other refugees go through, such as the feeling of being “inside out” and not belonging anywhere. Ha has to learn a new language and a whole new way of life, she has to give up many of her old traditions and ways of life like many refugees do. A universal refugee experience is something that is experienced by not all, but most refugees. Ha started out stubborn and forceful before they fled their home, "I decided to wake before dawn and tap my big toe on the tile floor first," (Lai 2). Ha is angry that only men 's feet bring good luck and she will not let that be the case for she wants to bring luck to her family. She loves her mother very much but she would rather hide her brother 's sandals then say that she loves them too, she does but she wouldn 't admit it. Ha from the book Inside Out & Back Again experiences many of the same things as other refugees do, this is known as a universal refugee experience. Many refugees are turned inside out as they go through the process of moving from their home country to a new country and as they try to find a sense of normal life again.
There seems to be a thin line between bravery and arrogance, especially in Chris McCandless case. Chris lived in nature for months. He started his journey with no plan and with only the dream to be out in nature. He dropped his life and set out for the wildness to be away from the all of society’s rules and expectations. It could be considered brave because most people leaving everything behind and going out into the unknown is very scary, but Chris didn’t have that sense of fear in him. Shaun Callarman said “He made a lot of mistakes based on arrogance,” that is very true. Chris did everything with the motive that he could do it which made him arrogant and ended up causing his life to end.
