“Those for peace and those for war and God blessed these ones not those ones but these ones in times like those.” – Jack Johnson
When choosing a career path the most important feature for one’s self is focusing on how one could leave this world in better conditions than when they had first arrive. Studying the way humanity interacted with both the world and one another influenced a political science major. Developing a passion to work toward keeping the human race in a prosperous form. Protecting the people that stand in harms way, honoring their right to live their lives to the fullest.
The first time I discovered the importance of our world working together as one instead of in competition was when the movie Avatar was shown to me. As a child comprehending how the species of Avatar worked together with other resources in their land in order to travel, eat, or reproduce. Comparing it to the world, why was there such a lack of unity? Restrictions with migrating and people who wanted to better their lives, invisible borders effecting limited resources in one nation, etc. Why was it so easy for a cartoon created by man to work in unison and not a race of people? Protecting those in harms way appealed now more than ever.
The militants, who were humans, decided to invade the land of the Avatar for a resource that they would be able to profit off of once they were back in their homeland. However, some of the militants realized that they were in the wrong; behaving as heroes they helped the Avatar protect their homeland because it was the right thing to do. Adding morals to our laws not only here in America, but also in other nations would leave my life feeling significant.
