"But more than anything I wanted him with me simply because he was Roberto, the most determined and strong-willed person I had ever known. " Loc 1629
"As I understood, with a stinging new clarity, how far we were from home, I sank into despair, and for the first time I knew with a certainty I would die. In fact, I was dead already. My life had been stolen from me. The future I had Dreamed of was not to be." Loc.947
Miracle In The Andes By Nando Parrado with Vince Rause Year and publication Aden Huggins 6th Hour
""Nando, I see a man!" "What? What did you say?" "There! Look! A man on a horse!""
Nando has many companions, you could say that all the people whom he survived with were his companions. He did have his disagreements with the other survivors but did not stop them from working it out and helping each other out. Nando did have some close companions though, like Roberto who he was the closet with, or Tintin. They both have hot tempers and were angered easily, this caused many problems while trying to survive. They eventually are the ones who make the journey to find help and eventually save the rest of the survivors. They take this journey together and help each other push themselves.
When Nando is in his pit of despair he fells alone, hopeless, doomed, sadness, and shocked. He feel into this pit after he had waked up after the crash and found out that his mother, sister, and best friends had died in the crash. He did not want to go on and fight to survive but he soon learned that he must try to fight for he is strong and needs to return home for his mother and sister. He needs to go home so his father still has someone, he must stay to help the rest of the survivors. He preservers and pushes his body to the limit to save himself and the survivors.
Throughout Nando's journey he has many near death experiences, the most crucial of these is the one after the crash. He was closest to death during this time, he was in a coma and left out in the snow be used he was thought o be dead, he woke up to find out that he had crashed somewhere in the Andes and his mother, sister, and best friends had died. This makes him feel like he is better off dead but rather uses it as motivation to make it out alive. He completes his quest after finding help and returning the rest of the survivors back home. The story is a good example of a true heroic journey. It tells of the quest, journey, and romantic elements.
Heroic Journeys are still captivating to audiences today even though all of them follow the same outline and template they just have different elements to the story. Some tell a love story in England with a prince having to slay a dragon to rescue a princess, or maybe the story tells of a young boy who is stuck in a burning buildings and is saved by a fireman. These stories have interested us ever since the first major literary writings of ancient civilizations. Most heroic stories you hear today are told in modern settings. Many people could relate to these moments for they have maybe experienced it themselves. We see stories of regular people becoming heroes and stepping up when they are needed.
It leaves me feeling happy but yet also sad. It makes me happy that most of the airplane surivors got out alive and that they made it back home, but they had to go through so much in order to do so. So many sacrifices, so many hard decisions, every day required every ounce of effort they had to survive, no day was easy. I learned to persevere through all the rough times even at when you think all hope is lost and you are at your lowest low you can make it through those times. The characters will never have to go through something this horrible ever again in their lives and yet even though they were in this situation with what seemed like no hope for escape they still had the will to survive.
