We live in a world where we expect people to assist us in our time of need although we refuse to help those who truly need our assistance. Instead of making excuses, pointing fingers and placing blame on those less fortunate for their short comings ,we should learnt to embrace others and uplift them . At the end of it all giving to others in need is the only moral and ethical thing we can choose
Chris believed that by going off on his own in the Alaskan wilderness he would change himself; finally know what his purpose was in life. From what Chris wrote in his journal, he implied that happiness comes from finding yourself, not by how many people you have a personal relationship with. Chris, who had renamed himself as “Alexander Super-tramp”, wrote in his journal “I didn’t really mind the absence of intimacy in my life, the lack of real human connection” (137). Writing this thought down in his journal, he had proven that human connection to him was nice, but not necessary. People need connections with others, but these connections are not always what brings them to their absolute highest level of happiness.
After looking deeper into the hill that was described earlier, she makes its inhabitants come alive. “They were flying an invisible map through air, a map charted by landmarks, the slant of light, and a circling story they told one another about the direction of food held inside the center of yellow flowers”(118). Referring to the way the bees inside of the holes communicate about their sources food, a perfect example of how alive nature can be. She expresses it in many different forms, through canyons, forests, and even through a town she once used to live in. While living in a town where hot mineral spring water ran underneath it, she explains how “the underground movement of water and heat a constant reminder of other life, of what lives beneath us, it seemed to be the center of the world” (119).
This song has it own way teaching us something. It is trying to show that one should not give up on love so easily, be afraid of doing right things and ever lose hope. We all have the capability of being a hero for ourselves. All we need to do is look deep within ourselves for strength since ultimately no one can help defeat our personal problems. A person should not give up on love so easily just because they could not find someone to love.
Sitting passively and waiting for a new opportunity to unlock achievements will not help a person move on. Stop talking about the social problems and start acting what benefits an individual. Do not be afraid to try something new in life. There are many chances out there that could be completed. These changes will not drop down anytime soon, one must reach out and exert integrity.
He means that if the venture needs you to be anyone else but yourself, it will lead to no good. This reveals to me that Thoreau believes strongly in the individual, being yourself, and seeking your own path. This quote is also applicable to modern life because many ventures nowadays require you to conform for some purpose. The second aphorism I remembered is “Our life is frittered away by detail...Simplicity, simplicity.” Thoreau means that our focus and attention to detail now in society and culture do nothing but to waste our lives away needlessly. He believes simplicity is the better choice.
Dr. Naeger is proof that you don’t have to be perfect to be remembered and honored. You can be quirky and disheveled, but if you live your life to make a difference and to help others reach their full potential, you will never be

All I can do is hope that everyone will realize that you don’t have to follow certain cultural expectations. All that you have to do is be yourself and realize that race doesn’t matter. Everyone should be accepted for who they are no matter what. Also that surrounding yourself by people of different races and experiencing the culture they bring with them. Will do nothing but heighten your experiences in life.
