Buffalo captures this moment of all our lives perfectly. Many happenings are due to lack of agreements and compromise. Everybody are opposing one another, and should “stop and listen” to themselves. The violence can go away if we all work together instead of against one another. Life is too short so make every moment right. No more pain, and no more
The difference between a hero and a villain is the same as the difference between right and wrong or good and bad. A villain is bad while a hero is good. Some villains may not look like villains. Villains could wear a disguise as a method to get through people or to get away with any of their wrongdoings. Just like a villain, a hero may wear a disguise if needed. Sometimes a hero can be a random civilian or a bystander when something bad takes place. I, like many other Americans, consider men and women in the military or armed forces to be heroes. I don’t think the word Villain is used as often as the word hero is used. While watching the news, you may hear reporters calling someone who does something heroic a hero but they usually don’t call
Conflict is inevitable in any personal relationship or among members of any group. While we encounter many types of conflict in our lifetime, we often look for ways to avoid conflict. So, why do we run away from dealing with our conflict? It is often because many of us fear the conflict will escalate into a situation we will not be able to sustain. “As conflicts escalate, they go through certain incremental transformations. Although these transformations occur separately on each side, they affect the conflict as a whole because they are usually mirrored by the other side. As a result of these transformations, the conflict is intensified in ways that are sometimes exceedingly difficult to undo” (Pruitt, and Kim 89). We

What distinguishes a hero from a villain? When assessing William Tecumseh Sherman’s goals and actions on the battle field, the lines aren’t always so clear. General Sherman commanded the Union army during the bloodiest war in American history: the Civil War. His march to the sea during the fall and winter of 1864 stands out as one of the pivotal successes for the Union, because of the brilliant tactics used to expose weakness in the Confederacy. Cutting off his supply lines, he led 62,000 soldiers from Atlanta to Savanna to demoralize the southern people. The actions Sherman took in order to successfully accomplish his goals during his march were undeniable examples of barbarity, using brilliant schemes to suffocate the southern spirit.
There are many times in our lives when we are faced with a conflict where the right solution is not
Confronting conflict is only effective if the offender is willing to hear you out and are willing to collaborate. As indicated by (Pegues, 2009, p.21) usually the person who is more spiritually mature is the one who initiates the reconciliation. My mother had me when she was very young and at times, we have a very rough relationship for some reason.
Although some are overwhelmed by the pressures of conflict and choose to create a new path that better suits one’s values or just simply fall into the trap of conflict, there are some that choose to join certain situations in order to keep the things they value the most. A perfect example of this would be the character William Thornhill from the novel ‘The Secret River’ who in order to save, Sal his beloved wife and his newly acquired land joins the group of farmers on a mission to exterminate the aboriginals, after so many years of trying to live side by side these so called ‘Savages’ which most farmers call them. Hence the reason it is often difficult to remain a bystander in under the pressures of conflict.
In Greece: Heracles and Dionysus, part 4 of the Introduction to Mythology book, it gives a multitude of examples that describes both Heracles and Dionysus as Hero’s, Anti-Hero’s, as well as, helps portray how they make order in the world. Heracles and Dionysus are illegitimate sons of the Greek god Zeus who both eventually achieve divine status, albeit through two completely different paths. Heracles or more commonly known by the Romans as Hercules, is one of the more recognizable hero’s throughout history, his stories are filled with feats of great strength, bravery, and cunning and is on full display in his series of twelve labors, where he earns his divine status. On the other hand,
The kind of social interaction which is at display in the fight during the party is conflict. Conflict is generally taken to be a normal and essential part of social interaction.

Superman, Wonder Woman, Spiderman—what do all these characters have in common? They are all products of the human aspiration to be saved. The word hero is passed around too much these days. A hero is not a football player that scores the game-winning touchdown or the goaltender who saves his team from a loss. A hero is usually an ordinary person that did extraordinary things. A true hero is really never a hero at all; at least not in their own mind. However, there are various cases today in which we see the exact opposites of these characters, the anti-heroes. The anti-hero is one who cannot be classified as a hero, for that said character lacks natural heroic qualities. However, the anti-hero cannot be described as a villain either.
The world is not perfect, things sometimes happen to good people. It would be nice if there was a hero for every problem that ever occurred that was bad. Someone to save the day from things like bad people, starvation, accidents, or any bad situation out there. Everyone like the hero, the man or woman that sweeps in and saves the day. Throughout history there has been countless stories written with a hero in some way or form.
Flames are coming out of every opening in a building and a firefighter runs in to save someone that is inside. A police officer is shot while trying to ensure that no innocent lives are taken of those being held hostage inside a bank. A lifeguard jumps into the deep end of the pool to save a drowning child. Firefighters, police officers, lifeguards or even the next door neighbor could be considered heroes. Why does society have a need for heroes? What traits should heroes have? The Merriam-Webster dictionary defines a hero in the following ways: a) a mythological or legendary figure often of divine descent endowed with great strength or ability b) an illustrious warrior c) a man admired for his achievements and noble qualities d) one
One of the most common ways people overcome conflict is family and friends. All three of these books are great examples of how people use family and friends to help them get through conflict.

Conflict need not be catastrophic or personal conflicts are simply part of being human. Deal with issues as they arise, avoiding conflict makes situations worse. Time does not resolve matters instead it decreases the chance of a positive outcome. Attempt to understand the other person's point of view because dismissing the other's views, assigning blame, and exclusive focus on your own perspective are all counterproductive. Do not judge emotions, no one's feelings are more or less “right” than the other. Emotions reflect a valid perspective of an individual even if you don't understand it; acknowledge the other person's reaction as important. Focus on the behavior, situation or problem area without attacking the person involved. Do not assume your values or beliefs are “right”, they reflect a view of the world from your unique perspective. Respecting another's viewpoint as equally valuable opens an opportunity for learning and growth (Lifetips moving up in life, 2000).
