Communication Breakdown

623 words, 3 pages

Intro Sample...


I struggle to get to my feet as I fall to the ground repeatedly. The man screams to me things that I do not understand, and it scares me. He gets closer and closer. All I can do is struggle and curse my non functioning leg. I buck my head and try again and again to talk to him although I know it will do no good. We do not have a communication channel. We cannot express feelings to one another or discuss humanity. As he gets closer I wish I could just give up now.
In a matter of seconds, the man is standing over me. He is giving me a strange look as I buck my head in resistance. He is not shooting me and I do not understand why. I want to be put out of my misery. He extends a hand and as I flinch in fear and expect pain. I realize that this human man is petting my head. He has a tear in his eye. He isn’t trying to murder me. I am confused. I study his face as he looks me over. His expression changes when he gets to my leg. I’m starting to understand that my enemy has had a change of heart.
After what seems like an eternity, a vehicle pulls up to the clearing of the woods. A woman steps out and runs over to where I am, helplessly lying with the man, he is still petting my head. I look up at her with terrified, wide eyes. She pulls a pointy thing out of a bag and inserts it into my flesh. Suddenly a relief floods over my body and I drift to sleep.
When I wake up I am lying in the clearing. The birds are singing my favorite song. The sun is beaming down on me, warming my body. I am confused until I feel the throbbing in my leg. I almost forgot about this nightmare. I look down and realize that my leg is covered in some kind of white bandage. The man apparently decided to spare me. Slowly, I stand up and head home. I guess sometimes all it takes is a look to bridge the gap between man and animal and acquire a bond with humanity. View More »

    Western Family

    A major change that has occurred in the Western family is an increased incidence in divorce. Whereas in the past, divorce was a relatively rare occurrence, in recent times it has become quite commonplace. This change is borne out clearly in census figures. For example thirty years ago in Australia, only one marriage in ten ended in divorce; nowadays the figure is more than one in three (Australian Bureau of Statistics, 1996: p.45). A consequence of this change has been a substantial increase in the number of single parent families and the attendant problems that this brings (Kilmartin, 1997).
