Internal Conflict

Today my seventh graders discussed internal and external conflict within the context of The Avengers. They mentioned some of the internal conflict--Thor struggling with stopping his brother Loki, the Black Widow struggling with taking down her mind-controlled friend Hawkeye, Tony Stark seeing his own imminent death and choosing the sacrifice of the one for the good of the many. Then David Han raised his hand.
"And Captain America, he was sad because all his friends had died when he woke up after seventy years." He considers his own words. "Man, he must have had really bad breath."
