He was the best runner on his team because he simply refused to lose and would not ever even let someone ahead of him in a race. Doing this made his Bill Bowerman extremely angry. Coach suggested not running in the front the whole time, instead during the race, he would use the other runners as windbreaks. Drafting off of them would cause them to get tired and he could use that as an advantage.
The movie version has a lot of events and details that appeal to the viewers like the novel. In the movie version it has Jonas at 18 years to make it more believable for a kid to have a job. An event that the movie version left out was the 12’s playing the game of war. This was left out since the kids are 18 and they do not play games at 18. In the movie Asher’s “job” is drone a lot and when Jonas leaves the community Asher catches him and drags Jonas into the water to let Jonas reach the Boundary of Memory, so he can give the memories back to the people.
Watching this game and watching the great man himself play prompted me to research about him. When I googled the name “Michael Jordan,” a list of his famous quotes appeared and the first one being, “Never say never, limits, like fear, are often an illusion.” This advice from Michael Jordan could not have come at a better time, since I had just come out of a bad attack of my Crohn’s disease. I was ready to ask my parents if I could quit

That’s why the red queen was always fearful. In life you have to be kind but not too much, but in my opinion I do think that being feared is way better than being loved. Often kings or rulers of empires in history are feared by people and the outside invaders are also feared by many people, that how they take over land. When you work at a company, you’re usually scared of your boss because he could fire you and he could give you a raise. Also, my uncle went to boot camp because he was going to the marines, and he told me that the people there try to scare you.
