I Am Writing Blindly Essay

783 words - 4 pages

1. Growing up we all heard stories. Different types of stories, some so realistic, we cling onto them farther into our lives. Stories let us see and even feel the world in different prespectives, and this is becuase of the writter or story teller. We learn, survive and entertain our selves using past experiences, which are in present shared as stories. This is why Roger Rosenblatt said, "We are a narrative species."
2. The three incidents of people writing stories in terrible situations that Roger Rosenblatt shared are; JAL airliner going down in 1985, the last occupants of Warsaw Gettho, and Jean- Dominique Bauby finishing his autobiography after his stroke.

This is because we might be looking for God now but God lives in few seconds into the future. The moment you stop living, searching, writing, the chance of finding God is lost. If living and freedom aren't the same thing, then I don't know what living is.
4. Growing up as parents, gaurdiants and strangers shared more stories with us, we gained knowledge and experiences from them. And sometimes we are inspired by their stories. We find something we can look up to and try reach, a goal. Some might find their inspiration through living and gain own experiences, but most of our goals came from listening to someone, seeing someone else's past and present. Once the goal was found, the path to reaching this goal is also filled with stories. One creats new stories...

Some say the fall of rome was due to barbarian invaders. yet its been said that the problem lay in the struggle inside the empire. how did rome fall internally?

579 words - 2 pages a jigsaw puzzle of many causes and many effects, spurred on and brought about by the needs and wants of the individuals. In the end, i am amazed it lasted as long as it did. There were emperors who were totally insane and feared any man who showed the least amount of skill or intelligence in either running an army or running a government.
