Transcript of The Long Fall

(What they don't show you behind the Scenes) What is "average?"
Who is "average?" Painful Truth Think about this for a second. WE CAN CHANGE! is our nation crippled by a
fear of change?
are our eyes fully open
to what's going on around us? Does Leonid make
a reason not to
change? CHANGE
RESPONSIBILITY Versus do we know how to
ask the right questions? are people inherently
reponsible, and does Leonid even fall into this? We do not know if we have asked the right questions or even enough
questions. if we continue to ask questions we will become responsible
for a positive change. if we give up, we have given up on change. does our responsibility
make us fear change? IS IT WORTH THE FIGHT? WHAT CAN LEONID DO? WILL HE EVEN TRY? Our ability to change Government ability Society's willingness to see change The Long Fall Written By: Walter Mosley Lyrics From Lyrics Freak and Video From YouTube
Please come now I think I'm falling
I'm holding on to all I think is safe
It seems I found the road to nowhere
And I'm trying to escape
I yelled back when I heard thunder
But I'm down to one last breath
And with it let me say
Let me say

Hold me now
I'm six feet from the edge and I'm thinking
That maybe six feet
Ain't so far down

I'm looking down now that it's over
Reflecting on all of my mistakes
I thought I found the road to somewhere
Somewhere in His grace
I cried out heaven save me
But I'm down to one last breath
And with it let me say
Let me say

Hold me now
I'm six feet from the edge and I'm thinking
That maybe six feet
Ain't so far down

Hold me now
I'm six feet from the edge and I'm thinking
That maybe six feet
Ain't so far down

I'm so far down

Sad eyes follow me
But I still believe there's something left for me
So please come stay with me
'Cause I still believe there's something left for you and me
For you and me
For you and me

Hold me now
I'm six feet from the edge and I'm thinking (thinking)

Hold me now
I'm six feet from the edge and I'm thinking
That maybe six feet
Ain't so far down

Hold me now
I'm six feet from the edge and I'm thinking
That maybe six feet
Ain't so far down

Please come now I think I'm falling
I'm holding on to all I think is safe
Presentation By: Kamaldeep Mann Can Leonid Change ? Race Issues Hard Boiled Hero Leonid Breakdown Society's Views
Overview : Character - Leonid McGill

Element - Race Issues Introduction
Leonid McGill - main character Corruption - deals with officers, and mobsters Tony The Suit Struggles with his identity But How Do We Know What Is Right Or Wrong Works for Money Does He Really Want It ? Is Leonid Willing To Work For The Good ? Story Ends- Does Leonid Forgive Himself ? Knows What They Want And Need From Clients Don't Regret Anything - may be because have no emotions Are usually confident and outgoing Video From You Tube Death and how close it is to him Corruption Family Relating Can't Change your past If your not the race desired, you don't exist No Matter What You Do - It's Always A Colour Rather Then The Name What they are What they have become What Skin colour is on them Why would Roger or Leonid Want to be another skin colour- what will that get them? Being Who They Are Becoming What Is Wanted What's Wanted What They See Why They Even WAnt It Cheap money and drinks Criminals and corruption Society's Acceptence A Real Life Worth Living They want to be in the norm
Not Feel like an outsider
They want people to see who they really are Conclusion Leonid is complex and that makes this unique to discuss, while the element is still very true today, and frankly it's surprising that it still hasn't stopped, because if it was meant to be that we were the same, it would have already happened. From things like actually feeling death and having a family, to the racial issues presented throughout, this novel The Long Fall, can clearly be discussed for both the character and the element.
