Many times, our life sticks around the crossroad, something which leads us in such a situation, where one has to leave one important element and choose the other. It is such a stage of skepticism which decides our entire future. Yuefei was left in a similar situation. On one hand, it was his mother, Charlotte and his entire family and on the other hand, it was his motherland, which was seeking his requirement. He mulled over the two deciphering situations, but could not come to a conclusion (Juel, 1988). He told about his vision and confusion to me. He told that he wanted to join the army but cannot leave his mother and family.
Kennard, knew that she can only provide a solution to his problem by explaining him the importance of family. She used a simple statement, “Family happens if and only if the nation is there.” She asked him to join the army. She explained him that you are not made to be a businessman or lecturer. You are my son, the son of a lady who has always faced a number of problems in life and fought wars with the society to live her life. Now, it is the time for Achilles to serve the nation.
Achilles was convinced by his mother’s idea and started preparing for leaving from the home. He had to leave along with his friend Charlotte. The family was in an emotional upbringing. Kennard could not sleep that night. Though she made Achilles feel that she is happy if he goes for war, but she was a mother. She kept preparing for his son’s departure with a continuous outflow of tears. The child whom she had reaped from the very first day of his birth, was now going away from her. She kept on meandering around, preparing one or the other item which may help Achilles in the journey.
