Today we can still see the values of Bushido in some parts of modern Japan. The Japanese have the tons of respect and loyalty to their country and families. They would do nothing to shame or dishonor them. In World War 2 kamikaze suicide pilots look to the samurai and Bushido as inspiration. Today the two largest religions in Japan are Buddhism and Shintoism, and both influenced Bushido dramatically.
The American politician, and former First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt once said “‘People grow through experience if they meet life honestly and courageously. This is how character is built’”. In Unbroken by Laura Hillenbrand, Louis Zamperini, exemplifies this quote because he grew with life’s experiences. In fact life put Louis in a Japanese P.O.W camp where he grew into a new man. Miraculously, Louis somehow always survived the tough situations life threw at him, and it was this skillfulness that got him through it.
I was devastated with every new discovery but I was glad to have watched the case. It brought me closer to people with the same interests. I felt united with minority groups in my city and I met a top attorney from my state involved in this case, Mark O’Mara. I grew up learning important family values, such as perseverance and courage that I cherish and wish to bring into my career by practicing family
The troops were the utter opposite of what Commander Aki had predicted. They were the most welcoming people I had ever met. Within a number of days they had accepted me as one of their brothers, as a part of their growing family. The craving of acceptance which I had longed for in Japan for so long, by my own people, was fulfilled by those
I think that it reflects a lot of what human nature was as a whole. It’s was very common to see you and your own as superior and it was all just about who had the power. This seems not different to me with the Spanish and the Pueblo before the revolt. Although I think this still may go on in some places I feel like we as humans have grown to become more exception of others and their divorce cultures. Especially in a city like Albuquerque where there is so much diversity, and I think the Pueblos of 1696 would be proud of what New Mexico has become
In many sections of the novel, Thúy focuses on the character of Uncle Two who is “a charismatic, happy-go-lucky young man” (46) and who holds many Western values. The narrator renders his life with enchantment ans wishes she had such a life style that has “a festive aura, a sense of decadence and thrill” (48). She often compares that house to her parents’ who didn’t take life that loosely and were more engaged at learning as much as possible to be able to face life’s hardships. Moreover, An Tinh’s family is always contrasted with the ideal family of the “American
“I’ve been affected in a positive way by people outside of my culture because they not only accept me for me, but to go as far by teaching me about different cultures. More importantly, I have grown to value my culture and for the people that are in my life and how I as an individual am a great representation of my culture. As far as being affect adversely, I haven’t been. All in all, I enjoyed this interview simply because I went in not knowing much of the Hispanic culture, while leaving out I am knowledgeable of the Hispanics. Not only learning new things but I also met someone new as well.
In that moment, I started smiling. I looked around me, nothing but kilometers of fields and some typical Japanese houses; I fathomed how comfortable I felt in that environment. A new place, yet so familiar. I felt free, and it was then that I realized the greatness of the love that I feel for what I chose to do, and the university path that I embarked in; because that is what led me there. That month in Japan was one of the occasions in which I had the opportunity to learn more about myself by interacting with a foreign language and culture.
Anime and Manga are extremely unique forms of artistic expression which arose from years of cultural collaboration and blending between eastern and western cultures. Their creation is unique because never before in history has it been so easy to share ideas between cultures across the Pacific Ocean. Technological and communication advancements in the past 65 years have allowed for Anime and Manga to flourish as dynamic art forms unlike any other. Anime and Manga’s main theme is challenging current societal norms and boundaries that dictate our society. Anime and Manga make important statements about the negative aspects of humanity we often ignore in our daily lives.
Since my overseas move to Germany, I have met people who have inspired me to make better choices with my life, I had the opportunities that my peers haven’t experienced in the States, and was able to travel and meet people of different cultures. In my previous home there were moral people, but there were also people who did not have any drive to better themselves. In Germany, I am surrounded by people who care about my future and want me to succeed. The people here are an instrumental part of my desire to go to college. Teachers, parents, and peers all have shaped my future in some way.
Pace University offers many opportunities to do this such as being in the financial district, the opportunity to participate in a the LinkedIn mentorship program and to be involved in the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance program. The university offers many opportunities to help me excel in my specific academic field that I feel I cannot receive from my current university. Also, Pace also offers extended Japanese courses besides basic beginner level. I would like to continue my Japanese studies because of my positive experience in Japan and incorporate in my
I speak both English and Japanese; I read and write both. But, oh so many years now, I’m very happy that peace is here. We always have to work and be friends with everyone in the world. It’s an effort that we have to, you know, teach our children. Do it ourselves.
The community was fantastic as well, the people and atmosphere we lived in when we moved to San Antonio was so much better than Laredo because people were actually nice to you and everyone didn’t look like they were going to cause trouble. All of the time I lived in Laredo and in San Antonio has changed me, when in laredo, I hardly had any friends because I kept moving from school to school and house to house, then it all changed when my family and I moved here to San Antonio, we found a wonderful house with good schools and
