It is apparent each of them are from different faiths because of the rosary beads, the yamika, and the way their heads are positioned. (best-norman-rockwell-art 1943-02-27) Each could be praying to their own God. No matter what their belief may be, they were able to come together for a common cause, for humanitarian reasons and the word of prayer. I strongly believe that interfaith groups are a vital step towards achieving peace in our communities and around the world. Different faiths or ideologies do not need an institution to come together; they just need to come together to establish a common
There are people who do good things because of their faiths and the camaraderie of the various religious groups is undeniably beneficial for local communities. However, people who do good things simply because their faith tells them to do so and not because they can see the good they can do with their own eyes need a good wake up call. No God, Preacher, Priest or religious person should have to influence the actions and decisions you make, isn't the human nature enough? Are people too afraid to act upon their own instincts? Will people forever be sheep and follow the words of others, the words of people who lived thousands of years
Both believe in one ruler over all, both believe in a good place (heaven) and bad place (hell) after death, and both believe in guidance through spiritual leaders(prophets), to name a few. Another reason I believe Natives practices have not been abandon is because their culture is inextricably linked and connected with Mother Earth. The land, the plants, the animals, and all around contain their culture, spirit, and identity; all working together to create a balance of harmony (Page 68). How can a culture’s spiritual identity gets lost when it is rooted into everything living and non-living? Lastly, spirituality was designed without written rules to be edited and manipulated, without limits and boundaries, without segregation and prejudice.
I have taught my children the importance of sharing and to always help each other out. I don’t want them to be greedy with their belongings as they grow up. I also have taught them to never be mean or talk rudely to anyone because it’s impolite. My family also knows the difference between right and wrong because if they didn’t they would grow up thinking everything they did was ok to do. I want them to know when it is ok to do something and when it’s wrong to do something because if it’s good you will always be rewarded and if it’s bad then something terrible may happen.
Mrs. Singh believes that one must do their part (eat healthy, practice safe behaviors, and pray) to be on the road to a speedy recovery and God will take care of the rest. According to Mrs. Singh, the critical components of healing are praying to the God of Health, Wahguru, as well as reading and following the words of Guru Granth Sahib in the Holy Book. Another component of healing is listening to religious songs. Mrs. Singh’s spouse and children read Guru Granth Sahib’s words to her every day and chanted the words of hymns together as a family. Mrs. Singh liked spending time with her family, and the frequent visits by immediate and distant family members helped her to not focus on her illness.
Inside the society of Salem, you either abide by theocracy, God’s word and The Ten Commandments or you get excommunicated from the society. Maintaining a good reputation is therefore essential in belonging in the community. Trying to sustain a good reputation is seen mostly with Abigail Williams. Due to her deceitful and manipulative ways, it is essential for her to cover up any trace of wrong doing she has done to carry on a healthy reputation. It is evident she cares for her reputation as she constantly says things like “...There be no blush about my name.”(pg.20) and “...
However, in Fahrenheit 451 Beatty describes conformity as a positive aspect of society – he argues that conformity in behavior prevents violence and jealousy by restricting the gifted and talented people from their ability to excel, which is good in a way because then the others won‘t feel bad. However, the real problem in the situation Beatty describes is not the exceptionally bright child (when he is trying to show Montag the uselessness of books) but the group of people of those who submit to it. Unfortunately, this very situation occurs repeatedly in our society today. People who choose not to conform may be persecuted by the groups of people who submit into censorship, and through that act of persecution the people reinforce conformity of
A person should liver their life the best that they can, and help out who they can, and to not waste their life. They should have made self morals and guide lines in their life, and they should not put people down and not being depressed and see life as a horrible. Like the Stage Manager said in Act II, “You’ve got to have life to love life, and love life to have life.” So a person should not look at life as a cup half empty, but the opposite, the cup half full and take life in and love it. Some people don’t enjoy a life because of some accident or an uncontrolled even, so if you don’t do anything with your life, that is a waste of life that has been given to you. A person should live life to the fullest and love every minute of it because each day could be your last
You make yourself fit in so the people like you and don’t leave you as an “outcast”. This is exactly how William is feeling during this movie. He wants to be like them and do the things that they are doing but then he has to think of the consequences and his mom, who calls him all the time to check up on him and make sure that he isn’t doing drugs and things like that. So after all this said I decided that choosing peer pressure and acceptance would be a great theme to this movie. What makes us need acceptance from everyone in life?
