Change of Stars with Great Impact!
Walt Disney was born in Chicago, he lived for 65 years. He was born in 1901 and died in 1966. In his early years, he began to customize his own drawings, such as cartoons. Walt Disney worked in various places doing this as an advertisement. There were times in which he had to go through difficult situations, such as failures. He experienced both painful and ungrateful moments. One of them was bankruptcy at the age of 21, this occurred do to a failure in Kansas City after a cartoon series. He had his mind set on his goal which was becoming an actor in Hollywood. Walt Disney changed his stars when he took his goal throughout. A TV program was released in 1954, called Walt Disney. Later, a giant theme park was constructed named Disneyland, opened in 1955. No other could be compared to such an amazing masterpiece! He became successful and admirable by many people, including myself. I have always watched the Disney Channel since I was a little girl. There will never be an age limit for cartoons. The Rescuers, The Lion King, I like them all! I also believe Disneyland is such a great place to take children on an adventure! They will truly enjoy the experience!
Tiger Woods was born in the year 1975, he observed his father's moves while playing golf at an early age. When he had the age to do it himself, he began hitting golf balls and in the year 1978, he was on TV playing golf. He began to have fans and rivals ever since. His rivals started scandals that later brought his marriage apart. Two years after his marriage, before getting divorced, his father passed away. He stopped playing golf for a while. Tiger Woods changed his stars as soon as he went back in for the game! He won various games and soon was forgotten for the scandal he previously had about having indiscretions. He became a popular athletic and admired by many, known for his effort and talent! The success he brought gave history a great performance! I am a fan of his for being such a great player and a very intelligent man. Staying physically active is an important thing to do, especially if you do it with enthusiasm, as he did. I decided to spotlight Tiger Woods for those reasons, his quote, "I'm committed to try to make the product the best I possibly can." is inspiring to me, it motivates me to get far in life like he did!
Winston Churchill lived from the year 1874 to 1965. He was born at his grandfather’s home. During his early years, Winston Churchill suffered many childhood illnesses. He began school and soon got accepted to a prestigious Harrow school and studied military tactics, where he was given a commission as a cavalry officer after his graduation. After that, he became a soldier and a war correspondent. He changed his stars when he was given the chance to first leave basic training. He took that chance but not to take a break, he decided to travel and make plans to become a war correspondent! He experienced a lot of action and was aware that it was going to be involved. He liked the fact, but sadly got shot and captured! He safely escaped and continued his journey. Winston Churchill became a politician and was in charge of the British navy in 1911! He focused on growing Germany’s military strength as well as strengthening the British navy! It filled many people with delight and he was seen as a well supporter. I spotlighted Winston Churchill because during that time it was much needed, and he made a change. A change that changed his stars!
Morals are chosen within each individual in the way in which they changed their stars. Every individual now has a different perspective by the people who witnessed their change. Their change of stars gave them a different worldview, a whole different life style than the one they used to have before their accomplishments. William Thatcher, the main character from the film, "A Knights Tale", competed in a tournament without having the right to do so. Only a noble knight could compete, still he faced the causes. He took risks and throughout the tournaments won many battles. He was not seen as a pleasant man before his attempts. He was given a punishment in front of a lot of people. Later, he was recompensed as a noble knight! That automatically changed his stars and had a worldwide view of a totally different person! Morals are chosen depending on how you make that change, most of the time it’s a positive change that can bring benefit to you as well as people around you!
