Hachiko:a dog's story Hey! it's a nice movie...You know I really loved dogs and this story about dogs really touched me. It's not because he rescued someone or do something heroic but this is something different. Among the dog's movies that I ever watched this is the story that I truly like and I can't help of sharing this for you. There was a dog which should be delivered in a certain place but apparently the dog lost in travel. Then there was a man found that cutie dog along the road. The man brought that dog in his home because when he found that puppy there are no identification or location where the dog should be delivered. At that night the man watching television with his new pet. afterwards, he go upstairs and sleep with his wife. Suddenly, the puppy realize that he was already alone in the room. So, he push the door and try to find the man...while looking around he found stairs and decided to go up there. He saw someone sleeping on the he move closer and he tounged the feet that he saw at the bottom of the bed. Then, a women shouted and so frightened that makes her husband awake. The man explained to his wife about that puppy. Because of the disturbance that causes by that dog the man lazily raise in bed and decided to bring back the puppy in the room where in left it. But the problem is the puppy follow him again and again for that he decided there to stay for a while He gets a bowl of popcorn and share it with that naughty puppy. Yet, the man fall asleep with that puppy:) The next day they are waiting if someone will claim the puppy. Few days had passed but nobody's looking for that puppy so the couple decided to sell it. The man and the puppy oftenly plays together. He try to train that puppy..,he throws ball but the puppy don't get the ball..(naughty pet!) The treats that puppy like their family. Then, one day someone calls asking about that puppy but the women refuse to deal it 'cause she can saw that her husband and the puppy became more closer. She also observed that this puppy brings joy to his husband as well as to her. The puppy became special for them. They named it Hachiko because it's written on a tag that tied on his neck. Even in his work the man brought that dog. When Hachi grew...he still coming with that man up to the train station. When the man already rode in the train...Hachi wait outside the train station until the man came back again from his work. It's always be the routine of that dog. It's very fond to the man. The train station guard knows Hachi even the hamburger vendor and the meat seller 'cause everyday they are passing there. Hachiko became jelousy because of the new baby that catch the attention of the men. It's the child of his daughter. Maybe, the dog thought that the attention now of this man is not all focus to him. Eventhough there's a new comer in this man's life Hachiko has a special place in his heart. There were times that this man visit the dog house just to gave a massage for Hachi when the dog is not feeling well or sometimes not on its mood. The dog eyes always on his man. Their bondings became much stronger. Once, the man so curios why Hachi don't go out with its dog house. So, he went on it and found a skunk on the door way of Hachi. The dog afraid of this mammal that gives an unpleasant smell. So, when men try to catch the skunk...he was tumbled down and the furt of the skunk spread all over. That's why Hachi and this man took a bath together. You know that the smell of this mammal is hard to rid. (ewwW!) Several days passed... One morning when man was going to his work he was curios again why Hachi don't want to come with him. The dog looks lonely. He gave chances and wait for a minute if the dog will come but in the end Hachi didn't go with him. He show ball but still not effective. So that, he decided to go. Seems like there's something wrong with Hachi..(why this dog acting so weird) when the man was about to enter on the train station gate he saw Hachi coming to him. The man smile and throw away a lil' ball...for the first time Hachi get the ball and gave it back to him. The man was so proud for what Hachi had done and people in their surrounding also fascinated. The dog don't want now to go away with him but he need to go now so he left Hachi. The dog wait again on the outside. Late afternoon, the train arrives and the station gate opened...lot's of people came out but Hachi didn't saw the man that he have waiting for. He sit and wait again...many trains arrived yet no face of this man. It was already dark but Hachi still waiting. The vendor and the guard are curious why this dog still there. Apparently, the man died on heart attack and Hachiko obviously didn't know it. It's so sad that..,that day would be their last bonding:( Next day, Hachi still waiting there. Several days had passed but this dog never tired of waiting. Hachiko entered on the train station's gate and try to follow the railroad. After that he wait again under the unfunctioned train. When there's no sign of this man Hachi get out but he still sit and wait again until the snow falls. The eyes of those poeple there looks sad...they felt sorry for Hachiko. Then, the daughter of this man and take Hachi at their home. Months had passed... The family migrated into the other place...yet Hachi going back to their recent home expecting to see this man. The wife of this man let that dog. You can see in Hachi's eyes and in his moves the loneliness and the longing for this man. Spring, falls, and winter season had passed and you still found Hachi diligently waiting outside the train station. The dog never gave up...Maybe, sometimes Hachi dreaming of this man and he was very happy for man's coming back but..this all is just a dream. 10 years later... The wife of this man came back to their recent place to visit his grave. When she arrives she was so surprise that Hachi was still there. The dog looks so dull but still vigorously sitting there. The woman come closer and hug Hachi. She said to this dog that he must go home now...he will never coming back again.
------->>> I he never met that kind of dog like Hachiko. The dog really loved and so loyal to this man. I just can't even think that this dog can wait for so many years. The weather never be a hindrance for him. He just don't simply gave up and never lose hope. This dog can be an inspiration to everyone. Hachi shows what real love and loyalty means.
------->>> Until now, Hachiko still sitting there but this is just his statue. Hachi died in a said certain year. People built statue of Hachiko for the sign of his unconditional act. You better watch this movie so you can really feel the story of this dog. This is a real story...

To Build a Fire

...Abstract This essay is a literary analysis of Jack London’s “To Build a Fire.” Jack London has set before us a story of survival and pride. Although the main theme of man against nature is very clear to the reader, it is through the eyes of the traveler and the thoughts of the dog traveling that with him that we begin to see just how frail humans are. The newcomer to the Yukon is ill prepared for what lays before him. Never Travel Alone Jack London “To Build a Fire” There is a thin line between life and death. Our own fate truly lies in our own hands. We can choose to close our eyes and blindly push forward or open our eyes and see the dangers that lie ahead. Our traveler in this story blindly pushed forward. A newcomer to the Yukon, he was headed to a camp about ten hours away by foot to meet the “boys”. “Day had broken cold and gray, exceedingly cold and gray” (p. 518). This was the first warning our traveler ignored. A foreshadowing of what is to come. In the deep of the winter where the days are extremely cold, an old-timer to the Yukon warned the man, never travel alone and to never travel when the temperature was fifty degrees below zero. The man thinking he knew more than the old-timer chose to ignore the danger, his mind empty of all but one thought - reaching the camp by 6pm. Spitting into the air his spittle froze and cracked before hitting the ground, a clear sign that the temperature was much colder than fifty degrees below zero. ...

...64015 Dear Mr. Hagerty, As a proud citizen of my community, I believe that there are heroes amongst us all and they are just hiding behind their true self. The reason is that they are too scared to stand up for what they believe in or what they believe needs to be done, in order to create unity. And, that is why I am writing the publisher because I want to try and convince our community that heroes are all around the world and show their powers in different ways. Ohhh… and I’m not talking about NO ordinary superheroes that have all these magical powers; I’m talking about the heroes that simple just uses pure wisdom to influence the ones around them. This story will show the world that there are heroes out there in all different shapes and sizes. And, as far as the story goes, here are the ideas behind my story, so here we go: Way up high in the majestical forests, in the mountain of Emei, in China lives the Somaki people, who had the most inspirational/wise man that ever set foot on the lands called Mr. Morrison. For the people call their village the Spiritual Oracle because of Mr. Morrison; who takes on the form of a monk because of his vibrant white beard and bald head, the fact that he wears glasses and is as short (5’2 to be exact), his face looks as though it is wrinkled in certain areas giving him the effect of audacity allowing him to have the appearance of wisdom. He looks as though he is homeless, but don’t let this fool the reader because even though the...

What's in Swindon - Analytical Essay

...What’s in Swindon? - Analytical Essay The story what’s in Swindon is written by Stuart Evers in 2012. It’s about a man and a woman, and their love life. In their twenties they were a happy couple, living in isolation to the world, meaning that they didn’t take part in society and kept for themselves. However this perfect relationship ended. They split up and lived apart for years without contact. Years later Angela contacted Marty, she told him that she had rented a hotel room in Swindon, and that they should meet. While In Swindon Angela tells Marty about her marriage and that she wanted to meet because she had second thoughts, but after figuring out that Marty has change since they were together she leaves without him. This is obviously a story about romance and getting over somebody you’ve been with a long time, finding a new daily routine without that special someone. In this case I believe it’s Angela who broke the relationship. We don’t hear who actually did it, and it seems they are both tired of the way things has become between them, but in the beginning of the story, Marty says that Angela left the Wigan’s World Famous Winter Wonderland, and that that was the last time he’d seen her. Of cause until she contacted him again. They were both equally guilt in ruining the bond they had, but she made the final move. We hear shortly about Marty’s everyday life and routine years after the breakup. He has a very ordinary life. He works at an office and reads the......

How Theme Shapes a Story

...Theme Shapes a Story By Trina Carr English 125 Instructor: Clifton Edwards Running Head: Theme page 1 Like many people who haven’t studied literature, if someone asked me what the theme of a story was, I would have given a synopsis of the story detailing the actions and characters in it. As I have come to learn, theme is much more than a distilled retelling of a story. Theme gives a story a deeper meaning. The theme focuses the story and is the behind the scenes force that propels the story forward. In other words it gives the story purpose and shape. “Theme will attempt to hold all the elements of your story in place. It is like a cup. A vessel. A goblet”(Bain, T 2010). In this paper will attempt to explore how literary elements like symbolism and character build and affect the narrative of theme in a story. One element of a story’s theme is symbolism. Symbolism according to our text is something that has a literal identity but also stands for something else (Clugston, R 2010). For an example the five interlocking ring of the Olympic symbol. Clearly they can be identified as ring, but when they are colored blue, yellow, black, green and red, they become much more. They are a symbol of the pinicle of atheletic compition and excellence. Symbolism in literature gives the writer’s work texture. It is one element that is used to provide the reader with a deeper meaning of the story. It is what......

Will Power

...All of us wish to achieve many things in life. But usually many of us do not succeed in achieving anything. And often we tend to curse our fate or misfortune. But the fact is that we have only ourselves to blame for our failures. Is there such thing as fate? If our Will-Power is strong, we can easily overcome all hurdles. The concept of fate is man-made. It is not enough that we wish to achieve something. We should havethe proper willpower to carryout our planes. Even a cursory study of the history of human civilization tells us that all great things have always been achieved by men of will. Great men become great because from childhood onward they had willed to be great. The notable achievements of science, art and literature are all the result of endeavours of MEN OF WILL who worked against heavy odds to achieve their goals. Without such determination, we will not be putting in enough strength to make our plan a success. Apart from that even when the scope of our plane looks rather dull, we will look out for fresh opening for success. On the other hand, a good plane with enough scope will not succeed if there is lack of WILL. So what matters is that we have the proper drive or determination tocarry on with our planes in the face of obstacles. A few examples would suffice to drive the point home. Columbus could discover America only because he stood firm against all the storms of difficulties that threatened him. Nothing could deter him from the path that......

A Pair of Silk Stockings by Kate Chopin. Analysis

...A pair of silk stockings by Kate Chopin. Analysis. A Pair of Silk Stockings is a very realistic situation, because the story is not written in the romantic style it is written as life is. Not everyone gets a happy ending in their story. It is an enjoyable piece of literature because people can relate to Mrs. Sommers life. It is well defined story; Kate Chopin does not try to confuse the readers.  The setting in the story is not clear, but do believe that it takes place in a regular city. In which they have a shopping center, dining area, theater and a cable car. Mrs.Sommers is in a small shopping area or maybe walks down the street where there are stores. It states, “… she crossed straight over to the shoe department” (Chopin 440). This shows how she can easily go into different stores to shop for herself. Mrs.Sommers is now visiting different stores instead of regular clothing stores.  Chopin wrote “There were books and magazines piled up in the window of a stall a few paces down the street” (441). This explains how Mrs. Sommers was starting to enlarge her shopping surrounding. Thus, it helps with the story’s theme by showing what stores and places she goes too When the story took place is not stated in the story. We believe that it takes place in between the early1900 and mid-1950’s. During the 1900’s, fifteen dollars was a large amount of money. Chopin wrote “. . . the way in which it stuffed and bulged her worn out porte-monnaie . . .” (437). ......

Leadership and Self-Deception

...other people we work with as objects, we lose sight of our goals because we are only considering ourselves. This is the message the authors at The Arbinger Institute are trying to convey in their book, Leadership and Self-Deception. The book is not written as a manual on leadership, rather a story of one leader learning the meaning of self-deception. As we, the readers, learn through the training program Tom Callum is currently undergoing, we all are victims of self-deception. The book explains that self-deception is merely passing through moments when we observe the needs of other and let them pass without acting on them. This self-deception breed ill feelings toward the other person in order to justify our own actions. This area of self-deception is what the author refers to as “the box”. The book is an easy read because the author or authors use a story-telling approach to the topic of self-deception. Instead of saying we deceive ourselves, the authors used clear examples to illustrate their meanings. I found this to be appealing because the topic of their book is a bit vague when only hearing the main points of self-deception. By providing a story and stories with in the story, the authors clearly convey their point which makes understanding it much easier. The authors believe that productivity in an organizational and interpersonal relationship setting can be directly impeded by our unwillingness to view other people as people. The author points out that......

...Salvation is a story from The Big Sea, which was written by Langston Hughes, an African American poet, playwright and fiction writer. He was one was the earliest innovators of the then new literary art form, jazz poetry. This is a story that took place during the author’s childhood, when he was going on thirteen. This story is about how he lost his faith as a child when during a revival meeting he remained the lone “young lamb” that did not see Jesus. In the end, the young Langston decided to deceive the whole congregation by pretending that Jesus had come to him. Hughes shows us how the thoughts and actions of the people around us can affect our actions, and how complete trust and innocence can result in a complete lost of faith. Hughes uses vivid imagery and simple language to convey a believable child’s point of view. Hughes starts his essay with two contradicting statements: that he “was saved from sin…but not really saved” (). This is a signal to the reader that the title Salvation does not mean what one would think it means. Initially the author went to a revival meeting at his aunt’s church with the full intention of being saved. She told him “when you were saved you saw a light, and something happened to you inside! And Jesus came into your life! And God was with you from then on!” (). His use of exclamation marks punctuating these sentences portrays a picture of a child who was excited and enthused about this upcoming event. He completely believed his aunt and his...

I don’t know what happened next because my alarm woke me up. Nonetheless, I got worried as to how the day would turn out to be. I hoped that we would not face anything really serious and disheartening like my dream. I hoped that our deployment area is filled with happy people who are contented with their lives. True enough, the old people (aka “Mommys”) in the area were enjoying their lives. Although we heard stories where some struggled in the past in making a living for their family, most of them were completely happy with their marriage and family. Also, some told us that they grew up together, that’s why they already know each other very well through the years. However, there was one story that struck me the most.

Hero's Journey

...Counselor as Companion on the Hero’s Journey The story of the hero’s journey has been told and retold in oral and literary traditions for centuries. The hero motif captures the strength and perseverance of the human spirit of men and women so elegantly that it has not been bound by either culture or religious tradition (J. Campbell, 1949). In this article a counselor discusses his experiences while working with a male client named Steve. Steve’s story is very inspiring to everyone. His story shows us that we should believe in ourselves. This story has touched me and I believe people can learn from it. I believe the counselor learned many things from Steve. The first thing I believe that the counselor learned from Steve is that believing in yourself is the strongest belief you can have. If you don’t believe in yourself no one will. Also no one can change you or what you want or believe in. The counselor also learned that some people have a lot of hope; and with that hope people can do anything. Another thing that the counselor learned was that setting small goals is better for a person to do. It may seem hard and take more time, but you can still accomplish your goals and maybe more. The counselor’s behavior may have changed as a result of working with Steve. The counselor may have doubt in Steve also, feeling like he did have limitations as the other doctors were telling him. Another thing that may change as a result of working with Steve may be that the counselor......
