QUESTION 1: INVISOBILIA (NPR)
What struck you about the contents of this podcast?
The issue of Tommy becoming more distraught than Amada despite the fact that Amada
had a lot to lose than him is one of the main things that first struck my mind. However, I believe
that it ought to have been vice versa. Additionally, at last, it is incredible that Tommy is the one
filing a law case rather than Amada. This indicates that emotions affect us differently. Normally,
men are regarded as stronger; therefore, they are perceived to have all the capabilities to manage
their emotions contrary to women who society views as emotionally weak. As such, Tommy
versus Amada's case leaves me entirely perplexed. It further appalling that the things humans do
are mainly reactions to their respective emotions, and this can be exemplified by the case of the
African American boy who is shot by a police officer.
Some of the ideas about emotions and the way trauma impacts the brain might be
controversial. How did you react to these ideas?
From my perspective, people are differently affected by traumatic occurrences or events.
As stated above, it is amusing that numerous things that people do are primarily to soothe their
emotions. It is evident that Tommy was affected by accident more than one could anticipate.
Nature expects men to exemplify strong character when some traumatic occurrences struck them
since this is what they are always prepared for from childhood. This is further expected to be
applied the same whenever an individual passes on. Such issues negatively impact specific
individuals, particularly women, in comparison to others. Therefore, it is too baffling that the
manner Tommy could present his emotions to an end was mainly through filing a court case. The
question that comes into my mind is; what if he lost the case to Amada? Would his tribulation
have come to an end...
