Conflict

"Change is inevitable. Change is constant."

Introduction

Conflict can arise in so many different ways. whether its because of family or friends or religion, but a life without conflict is naive and boring. Conflict leads to a new way of thinking, Of solving, Of solutions, and mostly change. A change may be good or bad, but conflict will always make progress for you. We live in a world of rapid change, but when you think about it, that's really not a bad thing.

Change of mind

In the real world, many people may change their minds, usually due to conflict. You can change your hair, change your clothes, change your appearance, but you can't change your mind that easily. I have learned that change may be bad, but it can also be very good for yourself. You will not get any progress done if you don't change.

Personally

Conflict can lead to change in many different ways. Such as in my life, like when I am put under stress, which would be a conflict, it can change me by affecting my productivity. Also if I am in a fight with someone, it may change the way our relationship works in many ways, it could be good or bad.

Historically

My question has a lot to do with conflict. So coming off of that, the Civil War has a lot of conflict involved, knowing that 620,000 people died in this war. The Civil War was a huge conflict at the time, but in the end it changed to many new outcomes. Which some would be abolishing slavery in America, firmly redefining the United States as a single, and many economic disasters. Also World war 2 has many changes at the end of the war,both good and bad. Such as ending the Great Depression and resolving the problems from World War 1. But also at the end of the war there was millions of homeless refugees, and european economy had collapsed.

Star Spangled Banner

The Star-Spangled Banner

O say can you see, by the dawn’s early light,
What so proudly we hail’d at the twilight’s last gleaming,
Whose broad stripes and bright stars through the perilous fight
O’er the ramparts we watch’d were so gallantly streaming?
And the rocket’s red glare, the bombs bursting in air,
Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there,
O say does that star-spangled banner yet wave
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave?

On the shore dimly seen through the mists of the deep
Where the foe’s haughty host in dread silence reposes,
What is that which the breeze, o’er the towering steep,
As it fitfully blows, half conceals, half discloses?
Now it catches the gleam of the morning’s first beam,
In full glory reflected now shines in the stream,
’Tis the star-spangled banner - O long may it wave
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

And where is that band who so vauntingly swore,
That the havoc of war and the battle’s confusion
A home and a Country should leave us no more?
Their blood has wash’d out their foul footstep’s pollution.
No refuge could save the hireling and slave
From the terror of flight or the gloom of the grave,
And the star-spangled banner in triumph doth wave
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave.

O thus be it ever when freemen shall stand
Between their lov’d home and the war’s desolation!
Blest with vict’ry and peace may the heav’n rescued land
Praise the power that hath made and preserv’d us a nation!
Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just,
And this be our motto - “In God is our trust,”
And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave.

The Star Spangled Banner has a lot to do with conflict and change, mostly because in this war of 1812 it was a huge conflict, but then it mostly changed to a positive conflict at the end, which at the end of this war Francis Scott Key wrote this song about freedom and the nation.
