Treating War’s Toll on the Mind Response Paper – By Aisha Pitt 03/12/2010 In reading this article written by Betsy Streisand it is apparent that thousands of soldiers suffer from Post Traumatic Stress disorder during and after combat. When they suffer from being traumatized during the war, and when they are still in combat, little help is made available to the soldiers and they are soon pushed back into the war before they have the chance to fully heal. When a soldier returns home with PTSD they have the inability to turn the switch from soldier to a regular citizen. They can return with depression and anxiety because they can feel like there is a complete lack of safety for them and their family. Soldiers have a hard time integrating
Justification: By reading the exact doctrines handed to early colonial, students can read and interpret for themselves the interweaving of both political and religious ideas. For example, “Thou shalt grant the King a long life: he shall dwell before God forever (4). The Church of England was a part of the government, which many colonists were fleeing. There are prayers also laid out for the sole purpose of exalting the King of England. It is also important to note that this prayer book was published a mere 20 years before independence.
Chapter 14 Oral Tradition For thousands of years, FN knowledge, traditions and cultures have been passed down from on generation to another in stories, narratives, songs, dances and ceremonies. Before the arrival of Europeans, FN relied on oral cultures as their languages had no written form. This oral tradition is included in many aspects of everyday life and is the basis of FN traditional education. Stories are used because they are easy to remember. The oral tradition passed on spiritual beliefs of the people and the lineage of families.
443). As we take a closer look at a southern rural environment you can see that family kinship and friends play an important role in raising children. Even though friends are no “blood”, in rural communities they are treated and considered family, at least those that share the same values and beliefs. People who act like kin are kin (Miller, 2007, p. 203). Referring to the interview above, most of their time is spent with their extended families.
However, noting that this continued up until the arrival of the missionaries who assimilated and led them into abandoning their cultural beliefs is substantial. Their culture helped communicate the group’s spiritual orientation whereby the practices help by the elders were transferred to the generations that followed through orientation. Systemically, it is agreeable that most of the activities, practices, beliefs, and traditions of the Native American Indians were communicated from one generation to those that followed through culture (Nickens, Nickens, & Arizona Historical Foundation, 2008). The story of Pueblo Indian Girl is an illustration of how life and culture worked together to exemplify the uniqueness of communication structured within the Native American Indians. Generally, every sense of nature is a series of messages carried down the stream by the culture of these natives as it has a practical application in their
And this is what author David Brooks talks about in his sociological study, People like Us; because everyone has a say in the house, older moral and religious values are upheld and there is no room for individual progression. Instead, those who grow up in a multi-generational/ multi-family households, are (in a way) prone to thinking the same way as their peers, and then they impose the same values on their kin, and it goes on and on for who knows how long. There are many instances where having a large influential family has stopped people from pursuing what they want, like author Jeannette Walls’ family in her memoir The Glass Castle. With Walls’ parents and their weird philosophies that dismisses practical thinking, they make it so that their children will live the same way. And to the author, she feels that if she didn’t leave, she would not be able to live to what she feels is right.
The Post War Life The effect of the Vietnam War on the surviving soldiers The Vietnam War left a great scar in all the people that were directly and indirectly involved in it. Among the affected were the soldiers that not only died in the war, but also survived it. The war destroyed them physically and mentally to a point that it felt as if the war continued throughout the remainder of their lives. The feeling of trauma, hatred toward the War, and grief are well portrayed in Yusef Komunyakaa’s Roll Call, and W. D. Ehrhart’s Invasion of Grenada. The authors of these poems strived to provide a first-hand experience with the purpose of proving that even though one survives the war, the same war never leaves.
The monophonic melodies of these musicians, to which may have been added improvised accompaniments, were often rhythmically lively. The subject of the majority of these songs is love, in all its manifestations of joy and pain. Although secular music was undoubtedly played on instruments during the Middle Ages, instrumental dance music didn't come into its own until the later Renaissance. Most of the music that people heard in the Middle Ages was in church. Outside church only a few people read or played music.
By this point the strongest opposition of the War was becoming the soldiers. From 1960 to 1973 over five hundred thousand soldiers had abandoned their duties in War in protest. There was one demonstration in particular that rattled the morality of the American government; ‘Vietnam Veterans Against the War’ was the name of the event that happened in 1967. Old crippled, dismembered and injured soldiers from the War had come on television throwing away their badges and medals of Honour, saying that they were medals of murder. Many stated after that they, one day would like to go back to Vietnam and help rebuild the country that the helped destroy.
The majority of these songs are love, in all combinations of joy and pain. Later in the late middle ages began Ars nova which refers to a musical style which was big and France and few other countries. The music of the ars nova differed from the preceding era in several ways. There was a greater independence of rhythm, and Secular music gained polyphonic sophistication which was previously only found in sacred music. The Ars nova paved the way for new music in the renaissance era.
