Homer starts to try different experiments. Although he didn’t have much support, especially from his dad, who always wanted his sons to become what he was. In Homer’s family of four, Homer has always been the one to blame. His brother and his dad seemed not to have any conflicts or problems of any kind.
Everyone has an endeavour to become extraordinary, consequently many people do not possess the obligatory attributes to accomplish an aim or motive in their lives. In the film “October Sky,” Homer Hickam the protagonist overcame a sequence of calamities along his journey to become a successful rocket fabricating engineer. He clawed his way out of an ‘unenlightened cave’ where coal mining looked to be his only forte. Where there lacked serendipity, there was no surmise for someone as impecunious and inauspicious as him to become successful. Moreover, the two utmost points of discussion, I will address consist of how Homer Hickam defeated adversity in a series of contrasting instances throughout the movie, and the epitome of a dysfunctional father-son
In the story Homer found a solution, for example when he got his rocket fixed him by learning trigonometry was hard but he did not allow it control his life. Algebra has been a struggle most of the homer's life so he did not let that stopping him from reaching his dreams for example even though homer still dropped out of high school he still got a huge award for build the ever successful rocket and also finally getting recognition and acceptance by his father all of those things boost homers self esteem . Get acceptance and recognition probably was one of his biggest obstacles throughout the story. In October sky no one believed in him except his teacher Mrs.Teacher Mrs. Riley that is what kept him
Homer wanted Sonny to work in the mine just like he did because he felt like Sonny wasn't’ smart enough to capable enough to get out of Coalwood. Homer is disappointed because Sonny wasn't what Homer wanted him to be. It’s hard for Sonny to deal with the disappointment that he gives to his father but it does influence him. He worked to prove him wrong and to not disappoint him. By the end of the novel Homer accepts the fact that sonny isnt what he wants him to be.
Once he argues with his father, “coal mine is your life, it’s not mine”. Homer is implying that you are yourself, I am myself. You work in the coalmine now does not foreshadow that I will inherit that job in the future. Homer’s father hopes that one day he will be working in the mine with him, but according to the Independent View of the Self, Homer distinguishes himself from his father. Even the community says that one day he will take after his father, this saying does not affect his view at
When Mrs. Baker sees Holling run she starts to coach him so he will get better. Holling thanks her saying, “Mrs. Baker, you helped a lot with my running.” This shows that Mrs. Baker cares for Holling and will help him with things that are important to him. Mr. Hoodhood was only concerned with helping Holling become a better architect and take over the business. Mrs. Baker also uses her connections with the Yankees to set up a meet with Joe Pepitone and Horace Clarke for Holling, Danny, and Doug.
With Bo Jackson, his ambition wanted to doubt everyone that did not believe he could play two professional sports. Jackson’s talent in both football and baseball lead to him becoming sponsored by Nike for a new promotional quote called Bo Knows which had commercials of him playing almost every sport there was in the United States. The importance of this advertisement was that Bo Jackson had so much ambition, that he would be determined to master every sport he could. Also, his ambition was so great, he would be able to be used as a motivation for many other people across the globe. In 1990, Bo Jackson decided to leave the National Football League for Major League Baseball by leaving Kansas City to go to Chicago so he could play for the White Sox in 1991.
It also gives us an understanding of why he is also very loyal to his good friend Tom. Tom never really had the safest or best ideas, but Huck trusted him and was loyal because that is a value he has. A counterclaim that can be made against Huck is that he also showed some bad values by not turning Jim in. At the time, there was of course slavery going on and to help a wanted slave was considered wrong and dishonest in the eyes of many people. Some may say that Huck was a dishonest person because of his choice to not turn Jim in.
Growing up in far South Austin in the late seventies was easy and simple. We had space and time to do whatever we pleased. This also bred a mindset from my parents and grandparents to allow my sister and me the opportunity to explore hobbies, sports and just about any interest we wanted. In doing so my parents and grandparents would tell us we were able to be whatever we wanted to be. I remember later my father told me, a couple of different times, “You just have to put your mind to it.” Henry Ford said “If you think you can do a thing or think you can’t do a thing, you’re right.” I do believe we can accomplish anything, as long as we want to, and set our minds to do so.
The outcome of the movie, The Hunt for Red October, was that the US Navy on the USS Dallas and the Soviet Navy on the Red October were able to successfully destroy the enemy submarine, the V. K. Konovalov. Without the CIA analyst and former Marine, Jack Ryan’s convincing that the Red Octobers captain was trying to defect, the Soviet Union would have launched missiles on the United States east coast. The teamwork of the Navy’s caused the enemy submarine to be dismantled. The movie portrayed battles between two Soviet Union submarines, the Red October, the V. K. Konovalov, and a United States submarine, the USS Dallas. The movie was in the era of The Cold War, when United States had tensions with the Soviet Union.
