Facing The Lion Analysis

Good Essays
This summer I also read the book Facing the Lion which demonstrated many types of courage. The most important one being intellectual and emotional. This book was all about a boy named Joseph growing up in a town in kenya and ending up teaching in America with all the ups and downs in between. Intellectual and emotional courage was seen in lots of parts in the book but especially seen in the moment above on page 97. This moment demonstrates intellectual and emotional courage because it showed that even with stories filled in his head, even if he would be traveling all alone Joseph was still going to go to America. That was not the only moment that demonstrated this particular kind of courage there was also the time when Joseph's brother came

    Disney 's The Lion King has never represented a story about love, trust and personal growth; rather, the animated film documents the harsh stereotypes present in society. At least, that is what critic Margaret Lazarus would have you believe. Her article "All 's Not Well in the Land of The Lion King" argues that the movie employs powerful metaphors to misguide and misinform the young audience, citing that "millions of other children [a]re given hidden messages that can only do them and - us -- harm"…
