I feel that the Brave Heart healing interventive strategy obviously were successful and very necessary for people who had no other recourse at the time, and without any assistance probably would not have healed and became violent against others and seek revenge out of desperation for help. The healing intervention program provided a way to express feelings, thoughts, and actions without judgment because the Lakota people where extremely devastated by continual traumatic events but their traditional rituals where stolen which prevented the Lakota people from mourning their loss in there on time. These programs continues to help other ethnic groups that had experienced traumatic events as well such as African Americans, Afrikaners, Jewish Holocaust survivors and their children, The methods in my opinion where sufficient and extremely necessary for the Lakota Sioux group and other ethnic groups to further their education in the America’s and begin to look within themselves for resolution and development so that people could begin to work together in a more positive way instead of holding on to past experiences that will prevent people from healing on the inside so that the pain will not destroy their future. Brave Heart, M.Y.H. (1995).
I feel like I relate most to how Malcolm took matters into his own hands to overcome his struggle with his illiteracy and poor vocabulary. I would have done the same, you can not sit around a think a problem will fix itself, you have to take action for change. If Malcolm would have continued to beat himself up and become frustrated with his lack of knowledge or education he would have done nothing but dug a bigger hole for himself. By Malcolm X self teaching himself to have a powerful vocabulary arsenal he paved the way from himself to still, to this date, be one of the most influential and prominent speakers of our era. He is mentioned in the same sentence with legendary visionaries such as Ghandi, Martin Luther King Jr., Mohammed Ali, and the list goes on.
Every person has felt shame and remorse, at one time or another, after having made an enormous mistake, especially one that had been fear-driven. The mistake seemed infinitesimally small at the time, but proved to have a massive effect on the outcome of Eckels’ present-day world. Although Skurzynski’s story was an interesting read, I did not find it as thought provoking or relatable to me. The Nethergrave was about
And in these environments there is always one person who takes the ultimate power above everyone else this could simply be the principle within the school or the father in a family but when faced with great conflicts the one in power can often change their beliefs and point of view by those ones without power challenges them to act and think differently towards their beliefs and values. There is also the extreme conflict of war where those of power have complete control but when a conflict arises those of less power can test those with power. Even the most beautiful aspects of life can cause a conflict in society, when Adrienne Partiger forms a vocal orchestra to form a sense of morality within the prisoner of war camp they are forced take torcher mentally and physically. The ones in charge change their minds when they see the woman creating beautiful music they lose their sense of power, and see the beauty in the woman. 2-survivors of conflict are forever shaped by their experiences- Its been said that “Out of suffering have emerged the strongest souls; the most massive characters are seared with scars.” I had suffered many demons in my life, but the physical scars I carry will never equal up to the mental scars I carry.
My experience was significantly different from Rodriguez’s. His life at home and at school is even almost exactly opposite of my own. My family played a key part in my life whereas his was almost nonexistent. I believe he took the wrong path. He completely ignored his family to just work obsessively in school, but took absolutely nothing away from it because he was only working to be recognized, not to learn.
Many books not written in historical context contain vulgar language and are still allowed in high school. Books such as To The Wedding, Of Mice and Men, To Kill A Mockingbird, etc. are books that are considered to have vulgar language in them, yet they are still used in schools. It is wrong to ban a book because of the language or because it does not follow certain people’s morals because then you are losing the possible educational value. “The books that help you most are those which make you think the most.” (Theodore Parker).
It is really hard for me to contribute to my virtues because of the injury I got from football. People talk about it and saying that I have no pride, so my actions are very hard to control sometimes. Just as Ben Franklin was not morally perfect, neither was I. Many faults during the course of this experiment, but I feel they became smaller. Benjamin Franklin said “I know it was not a waste of time trying to succeed to my virtues.” I fill the same also.
However, the nation was shocked. Even Martin Luther King Jr, who disagreed with Malcolm X on many issues, sent this letter to Malcolm’s wife, “While we did not always see eye to eye on methods to solve the race problem, I always had a deep affection for Malcolm and felt that he had a great ability to put his finger on the existence and the root of the problem. He was an eloquent spokesman for his point of view and no one can honestly doubt that Malcolm had a great concern for the problems we face as a race.” The assassination was a great blow to the civil rights movement of the 60’s, but with the help of Martin Luther King, the great movement reached heights never seen by the black
The opposite for work or non-personal relationships, I show more weakness than strengths when it comes to matters with conflict. Throughout this course and assessments I have learned to analyze what I need to do to overcome the weaknesses I have developed over time. Through analysis I have learned that you have to handle situations with conflict head-on. Avoidance and accommodation end up never solving the conflict. Background/Research There are many different styles of conflict that have been studied over the years.
My self esteem was in the dirt and everyone in my presence experienced the new bad me because of my displaced anger and hatred for my ex and me. Freud believed that the mind tries to protect itself from frustration and severe distress such as war, rape, death, and so on. He believed that we have several techniques for this, which he called defense mechanisms (Corsini, 1994, p. 390). I was no longer the outgoing, free spirited, kind hearted, and trusting person; I was the total opposite and at times I didn’t even like myself. With the help of God, my family, and my fiancé I was able to pull through and treat it as the life lesson it was.
