Physical consequences are very difficult to go through, however sometimes, the emotional consequences that you face after a moral dilemma can have even worse
I have for lack of better term "walked a mile in their shoes." The feeling of having your stomach in knots before jumping out of a plane, racing motorcycles, or driving through the desert is a hard feeling to replicate. I am glad that medicine has found me, because it to elicits a feeling of uncertainty and that is motivating to strive harder to be smarter to take better care of people, to make one less mistake then you did yesterday. While I will always enjoy my hobbies that most people shake their heads at in disbelief, I am lucky enough to have found a calling that brings out that same drive and determination to do what others wont, and to learn what others haven't. Entering a career in medicine where doctors are held to unthinkable standards, and no mistake can be a big one is a challenge I look forward to facing in my pursuit to care for
I want to go to one because mother said it’s better than living here and. Grandma was not that happy about hearing mom’s opinion, she must like it here. Well anyway it would be nice if you would write us back every once and while. Even with mother, Johnny, Ruby, Kate, Leo and Grandma I still feel lonely without you. And the food hear is terrible, they line up in long lines.
Parents love their children so much they lie to them, saying that they aren’t hungry when they actually are, or that they aren’t tired when in reality their bones are screaming in pain. Our parents are willing to sacrifice their own dreams in order to back ours. I know what it’s like to see my own mother cry due to not being able to have enough, blaming herself for the inability to pay for my college when she knows all I want in life is an education. Being Hispanic means that we are a united warrior front with strong roots and intertwining lives between each other due to our massive family trees. No man is left behind unless he refuses to help himself.
Carter played by Morgan Freeman was lower middle class man that didn't have much money but was a very strong family man. Upon diagnosis the men realized that they had some regrets in life and made a goal to live life to the fullest in the final months. Although the Bucket list was a very heart warming and showed many aspects of an older adult's life, I believe that overall the movie reinforced more of the negative stereotypes of aging. The bucket list did a good job of presenting conversations of religion concerning where do we go when we die, and presented both hopeful and plain way of looking at life as just a cycle of life and
When Holden states, "I like Allie just because someone is dead you don't just stop liking them, for God's sakes- especially if they were about a thousand times nicer than the people you know that're alive (Salinger 171), he believes that genuine happiness and peace can be obtained in his past and believes that Allie is no longer present in society. However, Holden eventually realizes that it is impossible to live in his childhood forever. This makes him realize that he cannot continue living with the same values in society that Allie died with. Acknowledging that his objectives in life are unattainable brings forth immense discomfort and sadness. However, Holden's sadness is heightened when he knows he cannot change societal norms and value.
For example I have always battle with gaining weight easily and I am always trying not to gain more weight, but watching this documentary made me realize how selfish I have been. I should be thankful for been healthy and I need to remind myself that there are many people who have real problems to worry about, but they tend to enjoy life more than a “normal” person without disabilities. During the documentary I loved to see the personality that Darius has, he seems not to let this disability affect him, but it is sad to see that there are not many places he can’t go because of his disability. And it is sad because it seems that he wants to explore the world more than a healthy person but not having many wheelchair accessible is stopping him from doing
If he were living normally, he would most likely become bored and depressed. In a letter to his brother, McCandless writes, “I know that I could not bear the routine and humdrum of the life that you are forced to lead. I don’t think I could ever settle down. I have known too much of the depths of live already, and I would prefer anything to an anticlimax” (Krakauer 87). This means that McCandless would rather live an exciting life and would hate to live a normal one.
LBJ was sworn into office less than 3 hours after the shooting. He took the oath of office on Airforce One at the airport. Mrs. Kennedy was there in the dress that had President Kennedy’s blood on it.

Before he leaves though, he "yell[s] at the top of [his] goddam voice, 'Sleep tight, ya morons ' " (68)! Although it is a shame, any reader can see that Holden seems to have nothing going right or in a positive way all because of his negative attitude. Therefore, this attitude leads him to almost care about nothing. Though Holden may seem to be a lost cause because of his negative attitude, he thankfully has an epiphany that changes his view towards the world because he realizes that people have to grow up. When Holden visits his younger sister, Phoebe, he is happy to see her, but when they begin talking their conversation turns negative.
With all of his experience that nobody has known in at least a century he is extremely capable of deciding whether of his choices are right. His personality keeps him from giving up hope and giving up on his society and his companion but keeps him curious enough to keep searching for something better in life.
