I walked over to the metallic piece to find Kelly’s bent glasses that she was wearing that night. I couldn’t handle the scene and had to leave. I went back be with all of my friends. Earlier that morning I thought it was better to be by myself, but being at the scene made me realize just how much I needed to be with my friends. Our parents found out more information about the accident and they wanted to know when the last any of us had talked to her. I informed them about my text and it was decided that I was the last one to make contact with her. The police also ruled that she had been texting while driving on the road, thus causing the accident. They found her phone and it was assumed that she was replying to me…

    The Week Three course materials of Foundations in Leadership have been influential in focusing on my personal state of mental health. The mind has the ability to keep us bound by worry and fear, and it has the ability to set us free to thrive and excel. Our mind not only affects us personally, it affects every person in our sphere of influence. Bill Hybels suggests in Courageous Leadership, that when we function as unhealthy leaders we inflict pain to those who are closest to us (194). The…

The standards for music have changed as well, especially with the onset of technology like auto-tune. Each of the 5 songs appealed to me in one way or another. I’ll admit, I am a bit arrogant sometimes, and simply annoying other times. At home, I’ll learn extra if I’m interested in a topic, but otherwise I slack off. Following my…

    claim. He states that the true philosopher despises bodily pleasures such as food and sex and therefore he should want to free himself from his body. In addition to this, the bodily senses are inaccurate and only hinder the philosopher in his search for knowledge. He would have far more success in this search when the soul is separated from the body (as it would be in death). Because the body is an obstacle in the philosopher’s search for truth, it would be unreasonable for the philosopher to…
