My grandfather was probably one of the most significant people i've ever had the pleasure of knowing. He was always happy and living in the moment, and he somehow, endlessly made people laugh. He was the life of the party and his smile always lit up the room. When he passed away, I had a very eye-opening realization. I realized that I should try to live the the simple, joyful life my grandpa had lived.
He used to take me to the courthouse and point at the judge and say “that will be you when you grow up”. It also brings to mind the power of believing in people. As a child all i needed was one person to motivate me and i tried my best to be the best at what i do. I see motivating as a great leadership
If it was not for him; I probably would not have come out of my shell. My grandfather taught me the importance of family. He reminded that this may be the only opportunity I may actually experience the idea of being with family. I listened to him and being in Ecuador taught me my true identity; going to Ecuador taught me what it meant to be with family. When I got back to the U.S, and a few months have passed by.
Every so often, we take for granted those who are important in our lives. Sometimes, we can ignore those who we think will always be there. The fact it, one day, they won’t. The poem “Abuelito Who” by Sandra Cisneros and the folktale “The Old Grandfather and His Little Grandson” retold by Leo Tolstoy are two examples of this important lesson. However their different genres, change in characters, and mood give a contrasting interpretation of their essential message.
About 65.7 million informal/ family caregivers provide care to someone who is ill, disabled or aged in the US. Out of that 52 million are family members which could decrease to 32 million be 2020. This may possibly happen because many people don’t comprehend that we should listen to our elders owing the fact that they are wiser. In the non-fiction short story “A Celebration of Grandfathers” Antonio understands how precious and valuable elders are, but also how wise they are and why we should care for them. Rudolfo Anaya uses Antonio’s good personality to show how much respect he has toward elders especially his grandfather.
My dad has many friends, some I got to know better than others. One in particular that has had an impact on me was his friend, Melvin Farmer. Mr. Melvin is a quiet man; he doesn’t shout, doesn’t get agitated easily and is very polite. But he will tell you like it is, no matter what. He has done a lot, and you wouldn’t know it by looking at him
Have you ever wondered how elderly people feel by the words the younger generations say to there elders? The poem "Abuelito Who", and The folk tale "The Old Grandfather and His Little Grandson" are amazing poems and folktales that let us know how elderly feel when you treat them badly. THE Elderly are still people and even though they need a little more affection and care they are still very nice. Both the folktale and the poem teach the same universal theme: anyone can become sick or old , so treat others how you want to be treated.
“You are something special, Joey. You will make a difference!” That is what my grandfather has said to me since I was in elementary school. He always believed in me, encouraged me, and supported me. My Pawpaw Duke is a planner, a goal setter, a provider, and a teacher. He almost died last spring and I realized how much he continues to influence people, especially me. He taught me to have dreams and set goals. “If people don’t laugh at your dreams, they aren’t big enough, son.” But he also emphasized planning! “No one plans to fail, but if you fail to plan you will fail.” Since I was about 13 I had a desire to become a teacher and coach, but didn’t develop a plan until high school. I remember some of my friends laughing at me when I said
Most people want to influence the world and make a difference in the lives of others, but how exactly can one achieve this? Not all people are born into a comfortable life, but those who are have a responsibility to assist people in more unfortunate circumstances. Fortunately, this idea of giving changed the life of an impoverished man named Deogratias. In the book Strength in What Remains by Tracy Kidder, Deo, along with the rest of his country, lived in a deprived state.

What is inspiration? That question went through my mind when my teacher told me about this project. It really got me thinking about who has inspired me that 's something you just don 't think of, but then I got to thinking and I thought my grandpa. Jud Reincke my grandpa was born and raised in Marshall where he stayed his whole life, married about 60 years,had three kids Mark,Mike,and my dad Norm Reincke. Jud later had four grand kids Matt ,Laurie ,my brother Trace,and me. I think inspiration has many meanings and forms,but to me my grandpa was because he was a world war two vet, a fire chief and was always there for his family.
He also taught me to stay motivated no matter how many times I wanted to give up because of my mistakes. I remember the day like it was yesterday even though it was eighteen years ago. This is one of the proudest moments in my life. It’s a lesson that I’ll never forget. Being taught how to ride a bike for the first time was exciting.
