Even though he used his hatchet, he dove down to get it and he dragged to the raft. He also was smart enough to come up with the plan and think out cutting the metal and getting the pack. Though he was just awarded more supplies for completing the task, he proves that he is his most valuable asset. To conclude, in the book Hatchet, Brian, the sole survivor of a plane crash, survives in the Canadian wilderness by himself and learn that he is his most valuable asset. This is the main theme of the story and is strongly shown when he flies and lands the plane, when he makes fire, and when he retrieves the survival pack from the icy depths of the lake.

emotional appeal by going back in history telling everyone that this is not the first time astronauts died in space mission, this comforts the public about risks astronauts take to do their job, this may not appeal for those who were skeptical about the program at the beginning, rather it is to gain more support for NASA.

A leader is someone you can look up to, listen to, and trust to be fair. “When challenged, they don’t give in too easily, because they know their ideas, opinions, and strategies are well-informed and the result of much hard work” (Economy).

“Providing for others isn’t easy. And the mistakes you make trying are pretty unforgiving. (66)” Looking back at his mistakes, the other Wes understands that second chances are far and few when your choices affect other people. He only received a few second chances in life, and those were only given to him when his actions/crimes affect other people. The event or series of events that led to the author Wes’ manhood, was joining the military school, specifically when he jumps out of the plane as an airborne ranger.

They live an incredibly private lifestyle from beyond the hedges that surround their estate: the only things we know about Amy are through the mouth of Johnny Bear and the community’s opinions. Miss Amy gained her status through reputation, not actions: “‘[…] they believe in things we hope are true. And they live as though—well, as though honesty really is the best policy and charity really is its own reward. We need them’” (Johnny Bear, 116). The expectations the Loma community holds the Hawkinses up to, being kind and pure continually, is unrealistic to expect of any human being.
The gas mask was a simple invention but for the soldiers, it was miraculous and a ray of hope that they could survive the war. The inventor had seen people suffering due to this deadly weapon and he chose to be a resistor rather than a bystander and he contributed to not only the Canadian war effort but the Allied war effort as a whole. This invention encouraged governments and people all around the world to work towards improving the technology and is used by armed forces around the world today. The second major invention during this time was the development of SONAR(Sound Navigation and Ranging), the code name for which was Asdic. This project was started in 1916 and was completed in 1918.
In the second section of the book, “Unbroken”, the author talked a lot about the experiences of the crew that Louie was with when he joined the army. Louie ended up with Phil and several other men to form a crew with their plane, a B-24 model, which they named “Superman”. They were all great pals who went through thick and thin together, but they believed the chance of survival was slim. One day, they barely managed to get it back to home base on one mission when the enemy relentlessly attacked their plane. However, one crew member was beyond help and several more had injuries that rendered them unsuitable for battle, their plane was also unrepairable.
Subsequently, this helps him clear his mind and organize his thoughts only to later escape from that boulder. Similarly, in Unbroken it states “To Louie, the most important aspect of Rickenbacker’s (a World War I pilot whose plane had crash landed) story was how quickly the survivors had gone insane. He remembered a college instructor telling him to think of the brain as a muscle, needing exercise to stay in shape. Louie was determined to keep himself and the others lucid.” This expressed how Louie will never give up, and he reminds himself of past experiences to keep his will to survive going. He knows that staying sane is a key factor to fulfill his will to
So I evaluate that the current situation he is in is in is way safer then where he started because of the he work he has put in. Also I evaluate that NASA is making a rescue plan because in the book they keep going back to NASA and wondering why a billion dollar company couldn’t save one man? It almost seems as though Mark Whatney is the only man on earth and they don’t like him so they don’t talk ☺. Overall I assess that Mark Whatney is progressively making progress to his ultimate goal, which is get off
