In “Shame: The emotions and morality of violence,” James Gilligan, a professor of Psychiatry at New York University, argues to make a point that shame can lead to violence in a certain amount of people. After working and interviewing with two convicts in a prison, he learns that there are three preconditions to be met before being considered violent.

The aspiring researcher Brene Brown, in her earlier talk, “The Power of Vulnerability”, which became a viral hit and the most favored TED Talk video, explores what the possibilities are when people confront their shame. Along with her most recent video “Listening to Shame”, Brown speaks of both shame and vulnerability throughout the presentation.

Human development is an ongoing process of not just, Hawkins concentric circle known as, the body, but the soul. His Temporal Systems circle that includes family, friends, church, society, government, economy, and education are what help shape and develop these areas of one’s life. During this process of human development painful things happen and if not dealt with can cause damaging results later. The title of Wilson’s book, Hurt People Hurt People, is a perfect description of what can happen. Wilson, knowing change is not easy, said it best when she said, “We must enter the change process with open eyes. When we do, we’ll see that the necessary truth requires tears, time and even some terror” (p. 96).

At the memorial, the speaker attempts his best to hold back his emotion. The speaker is a veteran of the Vietnam War, and at the memorial, he has a special connection with his fallen comrades.

Humanity is the state of being humane, just, and beneficial to humans as a whole. Having a sense of humanity during trying times is crucial and can either make or break the situation. In the novels Corelli’s Mandolin by Louis De Bernières and All Quiet on the Western Front by Erich Maria Remarque, characters perform acts that allow them to progress through hard times. The characters demonstrate that they want not only a future for themselves but also a future for others, even if they are enemies. By having a sense of humanity they realize that in the end they are all human and where they live and who they fight for does not matter.
