A little about Heroism
I decided to write a little about heroism after studying the Lessons in Tolerance.
We read a story about Rosa Parks on the Internet. I consider Rosa Parks a leader. She was going ahead of the mob to solve the problem, when others were afraid of doing this activity. To be a leader means a lot.
You need to be able to make a clear plan for solving the problem, to organize people to execute the planšs ideas. You need to be brave, confident, and smart. You need to be great in all your activities to show an example of justice, fearlessness, and competence. Then people will follow you.
I think another good example could be Igor Dobkin, my husband. The Oil Industry is responsible for construction of the oil pipelines. An oil pipeline demands big pipes for efficient transportation the oil. The pipe was made of a rectangular sheet. And how could you make a tube from one rectangular sheet? You need to join two opposite sides of a rectangle with a joint. The radius of the formed cylinder depends on the measure of the side of the rectangle. The bigger the side of the rectangle the bigger the radius of the tube. The value of the pipe radius depends on the rectanglešs format. Thus, to make a big pipe you need to have a big rectangular sheet. However, there was not equipment to make a big rectangular sheet this time.
Producing big rectangular sheet demands a big mill. The construction of a big mill takes a lot of time and money. Igor solved a problem about how to make a big tube for oil industry in a short period of time. He suggested making a big pipe by using two rectangular sheets. He suggested welding them together in a pipe with two joints along them. So, this suggestion avoided building a big mill to make a one big rectangular sheet. It was a simple solution, and he did his best to persuade his chief and his coworkers to understand the big economic effect. The group received the greatest reward-State Government Award. This Award was given him by the President of the country
The oil industry was saved due to the effort and insistence of one energetic man. Heroism and leadership are two main things to develop and improve our society.
