Health and Wellness: Question 1
There are various venues that human beings can consider as having a life of fulfillment. For some individuals, fulfillment could include a career, family life, seeking more advanced knowledge and education, traveling, etc.; the possibilities are endless.

I believe that the university’s model is a fine example of what life fulfillment actually is: being a person for others. Personally, I know that I fit this model of what Xavier deems as a person for others. Through the education that Xavier has provided for me throughout my four years, I have become driven to pursue my future goals.

Before coming to Xavier, if one were to ask me I would be president of a club, become good friends with my teachers, or make valuable connections, I would not take them seriously. Through these interactions, I’m developing myself as the leader I never knew I was; I am developing a valuable characteristics of myself due to my experience at Xavier. Sometimes, I do have regrets on what I should have pursued while at Xavier (being more open, make deeper connections with some of my peers).

I would create surveys using data from peer reviewed literature discussing violence in lower economic areas, police brutality, the psychology behind the stop and frisk, conjuring questions and a Likert scales for ratings. There will be questions about the safety of the person’s neighborhood, if they have seen a decrease or increase in violence, did the police stop and frisk anyone in their immediate family, are they fond of the tactic, etc. These questions are important to include because with many young men of color being frisked and in jail, the jailing of these young men are causing more tension between the police and the communities. Addressing these questions will bring insight into the community’s views on police and what needs to done about their relationship with

To bear that burden would at the very least require showing that a large number of nations with more guns have more death and that nations that have imposed stringent gun controls have achieved substantial reductions in criminal violence (or suicide).…
