  1. 1. A Hero’s Journey<br />By: Chelsea Ahearn, Deanna Figgiani, and Brianna Bialecki<br />
  2. 2. Henderson wasn’t your stereotypical bum. He inherited a significant amount of money after his father’s death which totaled up to 3 million dollars to be exact, after taxes of course. He was taller and bigger than most men, and was never seen without raggedy hair and was known for his uncleanliness. Henderson’s first wife Frances dumped him, but we won’t go too much into that..Now he has his second wife Lily, let us see how he’s doing with her…<br />

  5. 5. The First of the Three Spirits<br />The first ghost leads Henderson on a journey through out his past. <br />He started with Henderson and his brother Dick on vacation in Plattsburg right before his death, Henderson noticed the fun him and his brother used to have. Right before Dick asked his friend to hold the pen, the ghost skipped to Henderson meeting Lily. <br />The first night Lily and Henderson met was the night of the Christmas party and Henderson wore a blue suit that stuck out like a sore thumb. Lily offers Henderson a ride home where she professes her love for him for the first time.<br />The ghost then skips to Henderson and Lily laying in bed after the first time they made love, including when they go downstairs and come face to face with Lily’s mother for an awkward introduction.<br />The ghost then goes to Henderson threatening his life “I’m going to blow my brains out” when he knew Lily’s father committed suicide by shooting himself. <br />( add possibly Makes his daughter Ricey give up the baby she found, lying saying that the baby’s mother was looking for it) <br />

  7. 7. The Last of the Spirits<br />Ghost of Christmas Future<br />The last ghost is the ghost of Henderson's Future:<br />This ghost shows Henderson what life will be if he doesn’t change his ways. <br />The first future is if he doesn’t go to Africa- Lilly will file for a divorce, and have custody of their children. Henderson will be left alone and soon die of depression. <br />The second future is if he doesn’t try to change in Africa- The Arnewi tribe will see him as a selfish man only trying to destroy their village for his own amusement and will be captured and stay in imprisonment until his death. <br />
  8. 8. Question to the class…<br />Has there ever been a time where you had to make an important decision that may affect your future greatly?<br />How did you decide your ultimate decision? <br />Has there ever been a time where you had to change your ways in order to succeed? What did you have to change, how did you do it, and was it worth it?<br />
  9. 9. Henderson awakes<br />In the end Henderson chose the second future and changed for the better. While in Africa he attempts to help the Arnewi tribe get out of their drought, but fails after blowing up their well when trying to get the frogs out, making the water pour out and soak up into the ground. <br />Instead of giving up, Henderson goes to the Wariri tribe and proves himself to the king by lifting up Mummah when no others could thus creating clouds in the sky and producing rain. He was then known as the rain king. <br />After Dafu’s death, Henderson returns to America with Dafu’s lion, becoming a lion himself personality wise…He changes in many ways. being in Africa made Henderson learn how to love unconditionally and treat people with the kindness they deserve. <br />Scrooge’s end of the journey, he finally becomes a hero.<br />
