To lead, know that it is ALL your responsibility - Once you have achieved the last two, think of the entire goal as your responsibility. Build your own competence first. Then, help, encourage, and fill in as many gaps as you can. Maintaining the trust of your team members as you do this is crucial. You should aim for the achievement of the goal and put personal benefit on the back burner for everyone to trust you and allow you to lead.

I had so many questions to ask but I always received my father 's frustration and the same answers that had confused me. How could the bank do this to us? It wasn’t our fault our crops didn’t grow. It wasn’t our fault we couldn’t pay the mortgage. It wasn’t our fault, and I knew that, but it felt like it was.
On page 52 Henry Drummond said ““I understand what Bert’s going through. It’s the loneliest feeling in the world - to find yourself standing up when everybody else is sitting down...Walking down an empty street, listening to the sound of your own footsteps.” This quote means that it’s hard to be alone, standing up when everyone is against you. You’re lonely and cautious of all of your surroundings, hearing your own footsteps and you think it’s someone following you. Henry Drummond used this quote because the whole town hated Cates at this point. No one in the town besides his girlfriend.
The Pedestrian Thesis: In a short story titled “The Pedestrian”, written by Ray Bradbury, Bradbury uses the setting to display a lonely, sad mood and person vs society conflict as he battles the lonely streets. Bradbury shows the lonely mood by having the character walk alone in the empty streets. Bradbury wasted no time describing the streets as silent and misty making for a very lonely mood. Mead, the main character, walks along the streets alone with no sign of life, saying “he would see cottages and homes with their dark windows, and it was not unequal to walking through a graveyard where the faintest light is a flicker of a firefly” Bradbury’s quote shows how empty and lonely the streets are by referring to them as a
Therefore, Paul is in “agony” because before going on leave, he was hopeless and had no will to live, thus making him a better soldier.

You sit in your home and visit with no one.” Staring into the television screen, zoned out and mesmerized, our minds are living the life of the characters in the movie or TV show. In today’s society, people obsess over there shows instead of there family, friends, and children. The television has seized our minds, ignoring what’s happening around us.
The definition of poverty is the state of being extremely poor. The Walls family fit that definition to the T. In Battle Mountain, they had no money for furniture so they had to improvise. “We kids each slept in a big cardboard box.” (Walls 52) Even though they were sleeping in cardboard boxes, they still liked going to bed in them because it made it seem like an adventure. The family always had very little to nothing in the house to eat. One day Lori and Jeannette both mixed margarine with sugar and ate it.

Her loneliness is what made her make advances on Tom Robinson, the only person who was ever kind to her. “...it came to me that Mayella Ewell must have been the loneliest person in the world.

Huck had it much harder, and grew up in a more harsh condition than what I was put into. In the book, it is told to us that Huck hates the life the widow makes him live. With the proper mannerisms he isn’t used to, the boring routines, my childhood wasn’t much different from his. Though I have more freedoms now, I was confined to a small house growing up. It was once in a blue moon I was ever allowed to go exploring with friends, and we never went very far even when we did.

Maycomb, Alabama is a motionless community where life is still, those who were there, lived there for generations, rarely did anyone move into or out of this paralyzed town.

In this quiet town, the only thing that seems out of the ordinary is the Radley Place, from the outside, the house appeared almost vacant with rarely any sound. The neighborhood children made horror stories about Boo Radley who never left his house, in fact, only Mr.Radley, Boo’s brother, occasionally came out of the deserted house. In To Kill a Mockingbird, various events happened that showed the courage of the community.
"*Everything you do in life will be insignificant*. *But it is very important that you do it*. *Because... No one else would*." - Mohandas Gandhi I wake up dazed looking at the streamed bleak space-grey eyes, staring back into me, forgetting every word they 've ever said, their faces buried in sadness, only to be smothered in a window of blinding light. Moments pass, I turn listening to the dark hearts beat trembling the ground beneath me, crashing against the Shores of the Forgotten, standing on the hills of this ancient cage, looking for an exit- endless rows of articularly made columns, weathered but resilient.
