1. From Martins story, I learned that Communication is what makes us human, by enabling us to tell our own stories, express warmth, needs, desires, and also hear those of others. True communication is more than just physically relaying a message, but also about getting that message heard and respected.
Sixty years ago, racism plagued our society as a whole. In our courts, employment, and even some places that a child should be safe, like at schools. African Americans and any people that weren't Caucasian, were unfairly charged with many crimes. Without the right to a just and fair trial. The rights that every human being deserves, even some fundamental, weren't given to them. They used separate bathrooms that were immeasurably filthy compared to the Caucasian’s bathrooms. Their children enrolled in different schools that gave an inadequate education, setting them up for an eventual failure. They could be beaten, spit on, shunned, and many other things, with the offenders undergoing no consequences. All of this, just for an undoubtedly irrelevant reason, the color of their skin. But one man changed this. Through the action of peaceful speeches, marches, and showing love. His name is Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
"Sgt. Martin had spent his entire adult life in the infantry and was not ready for release," the board of inquiry's summary states. He strongly identified with the Canadian Forces, the report adds. "Sgt. Martin was not emotionally ready to leave the Canadian Forces" (D'Aliesio, 2015). At adulthood, ones intentions is focused on satisfying personal and family needs, as well as contributing to society (Krause, Corts, Smith, & Dolderman, 2015). Sgt. Martin's society in particular was that of the Forces. Being deployed and terminated from what he had known his whole life, placed him in stagnation; failure to find a way to contribute. It left him feeling abandoned, disconnected, and uninvolved in the community that he called home.
The next stepping stone in his pursuit of knowledge was Boston University, which is where Martin continued his odyssey for the ultimate truth; whether it be economical, spiritual, or philosophical (Carson 30). Martin increasingly had impulses while studying which would result in acquiring a partial yes and a partial no from the writers. Furthermore, this would only leave him thirsty for further arguments and perspectives (Carson 21). At times; however, these clashing principles would leave him utterly perplexed, undecidedly continuing the pilgrimage (Carson 26). Regardless of the many he studied, none would prove to be as influential on his thoughts than Gandhi was (Carson 23). Gandhi taught him the importance of loving the enemy, as well as

“It is true that those we meet can change us, sometimes so profoundly that we are not the same afterwards, even unto our names.” This quote is taken from the fifth chapter in “Life of Pi.” In text, it is referring to Pi’s birth name, Piscine, and how his class mates would purposely say his name wrong to agitate him. His teachers would also mistakenly mispronounce his name from the common use of the students. How people pronounced Pi’s name affected the way they saw him, so he decided to be called Pi instead. This quote, however, is not only a reference to Pi’s name, but to the whole novel.
