An authority on courage and integrity

The person who I think that has courage and integrity is my Grandpa. Since he’s super spiritual He would say something like ” Make the best decision that’s best for you and your close one’s. God will help you make the best decision. If you ask willingly he will help you and give you an answer. This is your problem that you have to get through. I am old and wise so trust me because ive been through a lot. I really don’t know what he would say but I know he would say something about god if your going through a tough time. 

Blind spot

Atticus said to Jem that Mr. Cunningham is a good man but has some blind spot. Atticus means that blind spot is not the best part of that person, doing something stupid without realizing till later. I think Mr. Cunningham is a good man but was blind on what he was doing and didn’t realize it till later. But I also think he is a bad man because it was his thought in the first place to try and kill Tom Robinson. I think Atticus is also trying to be nice and tell him that he’s a good man cause he doesn’t want to act a hating in front of his kid’s.

Real Courage

Atticus shot a dog calmly with one shot right in the head that had rabies. Jem is thinking that Atticus had a lot of courage doing that but Atticus told him that that’s not real courage, but real courage is knowing you are licked before you start but do it anyway. You won’t win but sometimes you will. It makes me think on if people are really courage’s or if there fake. Knowing your gonna fail but doing it anyway cause it’s the right thing sounds stupid but its real courage, and not everyone has real courage but some do.

Persistance

Atticus knows that in the jury with all white dudes he is going to lose any day. But Atticus is going to try and help Tom out even though he knows he’s going to lose. His family is going to be harmed. But Atticus is trying to stop this racism so that his kids can be in a better future, so I think Atticus is putting his kids through this because so they wont grow up the same way that Atticus and his generation grew up.  Atticus is really wise he thinks whats going to happen before he does it.

Climbing into another person’s skin

In the book To kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee, Scout isn’t getting along with her friends and teacher. She wants to quit school and get taught by Atticus. Atticus then says this to her, ” You never really understand a person until you see their point of view. Until you climb into their skin and walk around.” Atticus is trying to say to scout that you have to know what their feeling and going through. You have to put yourself into their position so you can understand them better. Scout needs to understand people better to get them to be more friendly.

Beliefs and Actions

I think its important to know whats in your Belief window because we need to know what were seeing most of the time. Beliefs are formed when we get into a habit something and you stick to it and becomes to a belief. Belief determine are actions because you always think about and you start to try and then become and action and habit we do. I really don’t like having a Belief window I want to see reality how its supposed to be seen. I feel the belief window is causing people to see bad things so they go do the bad things and becomes a threat.

1% gain

In the article that has a really long name that I don’t want to type, It talks about how 1% in something will improve how you do it. Something that I could improve on in life is going to sleep early. I usually don’t go to sleep early I just stay up and do nothing cause I don’t want to go sleep. But when I wake up I’m really tired for school or training and it just sucks. If I go sleep earlier, in a week I would be able to function better in the morning and the rest of the day.

Sticky issue with Equality

What is true Equality? Google says Equality is “The state of being equal, especially in status rights and opportunities.” Back then when racism was pretty big everyone says that we were separate but equal. But the colored weren’t treated equally they were looked down by whites. Equality means that every man or woman has the same rights and treated the same and not one side thinking there better than the other. Equality should always be the case to us and we should not think that the other side is worse than us. We are all humans but with different traits.

Literature Review

There was no title to the story the writer forgot to put one in. The story is about 3 demigods, who have the power to control the 7, 8, and 9 tailed beast. They would turn into it and become really overpowered. There has been a war between gods and ever since, then the gods have shut off contact with earth. The Gods gave them clues that a war will break out and need to find the rest of the demigods. There were some parts that didn’t make sense. There was a twist at the end so. I would recommend the story to people who like fantasy type’s of story’s.

Tell me about it

Right now I am thinking of how boring school is, and how much I want to leave school. I forgot that I still have to do the 1000 word essay so that sucks. I’m also thinking about volleyball and how much I want to beat the lone peak team. I’m pretty hungry so I want to go to lunch, and how lunch is the only fun thing for my b-days. I want to go on a vacation to Hawaii already because it’s so cold this winter. I want to go to the beach and surf there, and chill at the beach.
