A Long Walk To Water

This post will be about A Long Walk To Water. If you don’t know what that is A Long Walk To Water is about Salvas journey to the refugee camp in Ethiopia And to Kenya. First of Salva is a huge inspiration to me. He watches his uncle get shot and five men die. Now onto the questions.

Question one what are the qualities of effective leadership. First, what is leadership? leadership is having the traits to lead. One of the traits is determined when you’re leading you can’t just give up in the middle of what you’re doing then you’re just a bad leader. Also, some other traits are positivity because you can’t just think I can’t make it oh I’m too slow. One more quality is that you can’t be mean You can be a little bit Strict to has and telling people what to do but you can’t just be like ‘ Doug you’re going to slow we are going to leave you behind ’.The last quality is perseverance. Which means you always try even though it’s hard.

 

Question two what qualities does Salva have for effective leadership. Salva definitely has determination he believes to take small steps. The second leadership trait that he has his positivity. He always stays positive even when he sees 5 men Dying or his Uncle get shot. The last quality is  Perseverance he always tries even though it’s hard which is the definition of perseverance. now onto the smaller questions.

 

For the smaller questions, i’m just going to put them all together. Question 1 how may Salvas philosophy help your life. If you’ve already forgotten his philosophy is to take everything one step at a time. I could use this in my life by doing things one step at a time. For example, what I’m doing homework that’s due on Friday I could do it a tiny bit every day. Question 2 Why is perseverance so important. perseverance is so important because you have to keep trying and you can’t give up or else you’re going to go nowhere. But if you try too hard and you’re not succeeding you’ll feel bad about yourself. Question 3 How can you develop the ability to persevere. To develop your ability with the persevere you can listen to salvas philosophy and that’s the take everything one step at a time. If you take things one step at a time you’ll have a better chance of persevering because you’re not feeling like you have such a huge goal.

Home of the Brave

In class, we are reading Home of the Brave and this is our latest question. Gol is a cow, but Katherine Applegate (author of Home of The Brave) also uses her as a symbol. How does Gol represent Kek’s past, present, and possibly his future? Gol represents Kek’s past since in his old home he herded cattle so taking care of  Gol reminded Kek of his old life. The second thing that Gol represents is Kek’s old family because his brother and dad are dead and he does not know if his mom is dead or alive also Gol in Kek’s old language means family.  Lastly Gol represents Kek’s future I think that where the book is going I think Kek might leave America to return to his old home to herd cattle like Gol so Gol represents that to.  I think Gol might even represent Kek because near the end of the book it said of see goes to her new land to begin again and Kek went to America to begin again.
