Transcript of Caitlin & Josie: Monomyth Cycle: heroism: Minerva
.... Using a specially designed wind tunnel and wisps of smoke to reveal airflow, they observed red admiral butterflies in flight. As the insects flew to and from artificial flowers in the wind tunnel, they were monitored by high-speed digital cameras that recorded the airflow around their wings. The researchers discovered that “the fluttering of butterflies is not a random, erratic wandering, but results from the mastery of a wide array of aerodynamic mechanisms.” (Butterfly Flight). Minerva is called a butterfly when she joins the revolution she was called a butterfly. She was determined to do anything to overthrow Trujillo. Enemies/Monsters Minerva has hated Trujillo from the start, he is been the enemy from the start.

Minerva and Minerva were best of friends and had one thing in common they both hated Trujillo. Ultimate Battle Minerva has been through many battles and through all them she stayed strong. But this one was a little bit tougher she had to leave her kids to leave them all behind. She had to take a huge part in revolution, "Minerva said 'I'm going to be on the road a lot. and ill be coming down here for some meetings every week.' Patrica says, ' but Minerva your own child-' I began and then I saw it did hurt her to make this sacrifice she was convinced she needed to make"(155).She had to make the biggest decision and it may even cause her death. A Boon\ Prize Minerva finally ended up in prison after long. She was in there for months and she had not seen her kids or her family in months except Maria Theresa.

Transformation Minerva was having problems after prison, but she wasn't losing her faith in the revolution.She still felt strong about the revolution and she was still fighting. But secretly inside she was falling apart" After seven months in prison a lot of that time in solitary the overload was too much...id sit up shocked at what i was letting happen to me. I had been so much stronger and braver in prison. Now at home i was falling apart" (257&258).
