I sneaked up the back porch steps to get inside the house. Maybe the vampire bat don't say it , but the only thing thought on my mind was “aha, you doggone Amoses, that hurt, but now i get my revenge!”they haven't locked the kitchen window . it slid open with just a couple of squeaks, then i was inside the amos house crouched down like a cat burglar. Quick as a rabbit i looked under the table to see if they’d moved my suitcase.It was still there.” Bud was a risk taker because he sneaked out of the shed to get revenge on the amoses whitch was difficult and scary considering that it was night time and the amoses were asleep. Bud was also a risk taker because he snuck into the house to check on his suitc
Bud’s imagination helps him escape danger that isn’t even there, Bud steals Lefty Lewis’s car to escape a could be vampire attack. Bud tried to escape from the so called vampire as fast as he could. “I pulled the gear lever down and the car took off with the vampire running as hard as he could to catch me.” (Curtis 107) This quote proves that Bud is one to take action in dangerous moments, Bud can preserve and keep a clear head in dangerous or scary moments. Bud uses the flight option
When Bud woke up, he swathe sun began to rise. Once he arrived at the mission, a big, tall man announced that the people before Bud were the last group of people to eat breakfast. Bud kept complaining and begged to eat breakfast, but the big man didn’t show any sympathy. The more Bud begged, the more he was pushing the big man’s buttons. Right when the man was about to hurt Bud, a family of four called Bud Clarence and pretended like he was a part of the family. So, Bud and his pretend family walked inside the mission. After the meal, Bud thanked his pretend family, and his pretend parents told him to come early next time. Then, Bud headed back
Survival is something that requires a great amount of grit, which could be the deciding factor between life and death. Even when it seems all the odds are against you, having even a speck of grit
His inability to control his own strength and his temptations of physical stimulation for soft things have caused him to get into series of trouble. Despite his inability to control himself and his low mental capability, he has the ability to recognize the morals of right and wrong. For example, when he accidentally kills Slim’s puppy, he understands that he did something wrong and knew the consequences, whereas he says “George ain’t gonna let me tend no rabbits”. Since he has the knowledge and ability to distinguish right and wrong situations, he should have kept himself away from Curley’s wife when she tries to approach him. He should also have avoided touching Curley’s wife’s hair as he knew that George told him interacting with Curley’s wife is a wrongful action. He has a realisation that he did something wrong as he once said that “George gonna say I done a bad thing”. Unfortunately, he chose to silent Curley’s wife in wrong way, meanwhile, he accidentally kills and leading to the incident where George has to kill him before Curley does. Therefore Lennie is partly responsible for his own
Survival is living on the hope that better things are yet to come in your life. Right now in our country people survive because of hope and the belief that people are good and they will help them out. People survive when they are homeless on the streets only because of the people who are good at heart and give them food or money to buy clothing for the winter. Gerta survived because of her family and friends. Anne Frank survived because she believed that “Despite all the evil going on in the world I still believe that all people are good at heart.”
When looking at situations, more specifically decisions of others from the outside, it can seem that the alternative, better option is straightforward and simple. Whereas, actually being in the position of making the life changing choice, actions may fly by too quickly without a chance for the person to debate possible, more appropriate, options. A Separate Peace and Dead Poets Society, present the idea of slowing down long enough to lead to a more beneficial outcome. Using the examples above, it is clear that other actions could have been taken. For one thing, Finny’s misfortune could have been easily avoided. Seeing how their friendship is clearly important to him, his intention is not to hurt Finny when he shakes the branch. He only wants to seem a little stronger than his seemingly untouchable, talented friend, supported by his thoughts when it happened,” It was the first clumsy physical action I had seen him make”(60). However, the tragic events all following as a result of Finny falling could have been avoided if Gene and Finny talked and cleared up the misunderstandings. Of course, similarly to the death of Neil in Dead Poets Society, this was not the case due to easily avertable, impulsive
Impulsive decisions leaves people in unfortunate situations. This is best shown in Branson Mull’s book Fablehaven. This is shown when Seth succeeds in capturing a fairy. Every since he was shown fablehaven Seth's need to explore grew. To study the new creatures of fairies Seth captures one oblivious to his future consequences. “Seth pounced slapping the lib on the jar. The fairies were so quick! He expected to catch all three, but two wizzed out just before the lib enclosed the covering. The remaining farry pushed against the lid with surprising force”(Mull48).
When they arrived in Grand Rapids they went to the Log Cabin where Herman E. Calloway lives Bud got off the car first and said he would like to explain to his father by himself. Bud went inside the first door, but not the second. He waited a little bit then went back outside to tell Lefty Lewis he talked with his father and to get his suitcase which he left in the car.
Louie’s running taught him to power through adversity and to never cower in the difficulty of life. During the war, Louie was faced with many times that his resiliency shined through hard times. Louie was first faced with a task that would ultimately show how resilient he was when the Green Hornet had faced engine trouble, eventually crashing, “sensing the ocean coming up at the plane, he took a last glance at the twisting sky, then pulled the life raft in front of him and pushed his head into his chest,” (Hillenbrand 125). Louie was more than afraid during the feat, but instead of allowing the fear to take control of him, he realized that he had the will to live. He was not done living his life and decided to fight for it. Louie, later on when living his life on a raft floating adrift with Green Hornet airmen Phil and Mac, their bodies deteriorated to nothing but frail skin and bone. The men, especially Mac, wanted nothing more than to succumb to death, but Louie would not allow it. He tried his hardest to make the men foresee a life beyond war but, “Mac didn’t join the prognostication. He was slipping away,” (Hillenbrand 166). Louie’s resiliency to dying, as well as selflessly helping Mac helps to show the type of person he is, and how war slowly began to change him. It also helps Louie succeed in future troubling
There was a man named bud, and he had a service dog that was killed while trying to protect him from an alligator in October, of 1955 but had died to, the public hopes of preventing this future tragedy again.
