Keating seems to have set out to break the mold of the tradition Welton teacher. He also seems to want his students to also break the mold and think for themselves. He accomplishes this goal by showing them how to look at the world differently and showing them that emotions are not something you should bottle up, but put on a page.

The boys, in turn, take interest in Mr. Keating’s teachings, they take the idea if they are going to die one day, to heart, and begin to live their lives to the fullest.
CHAPTER 9 – LOSE AND LEARN “You may encounter many defeats, but you must not be defeated. Because it may be necessary to encounter the defeats, so you can know who you are, what you can rise from, how you can still come out of it.” ― Maya Angelou, American memoirist, poet, and civil rights activist Oftentimes, people go through life’s troubles.

Also I was shocked to see how the Nacirema people could worship these “healers” in their society and continuously visit these “healers” at least yearly even though the Nacirema would usually go through extreme pain. I had to constantly remind myself when reading the article that I needed to leave my judgment out and respect the Nacirema’s rituals and culture. The Nacirema people are people who should be treated fairly and respected because no matter what they worship or what drives them, they are people like me. After reading this article, I realized that I need to learn more about social science since this science will help me expand my views on how humans interact in societies by looking at their attitudes and behavior so to get a better picture of that specific group of humans’ culture and thus respect it more. In order to help me better respect someone’s culture and rituals, I now realize need to step back and see what I may have in common with that person’s up-bringing.

I might always have health issues, and I may not ever be able to relax. However, that struggle and that desire to overcome has inspired me not only to get back to the person I was before the surgeries, but to better myself because of it. It’s that drive that inspires me to stay up studying well after the sun has set, to endure the pain during my physical therapy sessions, and most importantly to see that everyone must overcome adversity no matter how much it may affect their life. I see the way my mother put her entire universe on hold to care for me, and how agonizing that must have been to watch her daughter nearly slip away. I see the little girl with the plaid comforter, she was so tough, hoisting a smile onto her face when the rest of her body was in so much pain.
