Write a 250-word reply to the following discussion board: The scenario described

Write a 250-word reply to the following discussion board:
The scenario described in this post reflects a not-so-uncommon reality. Hire, and fire are still the normality in many companies. We are all humans, and we make mistakes. If we are not allowed to make mistakes, we will not be able to learn from them and will try to hide them, which will lead to a possibly dangerous situation. The Safety Management System is a top-down approach. If I had been told that the leadership was not reacting well when speaking up about unsafe conditions, I would have tried to figure out how far this mentality would go. If the top management does not live up to the SMS, the others will not follow. If the top management is up for the challenge, that would be a great example to see if they believe in the system. Speaking up to them about the issues would show their true face. Of course, it is risking your job, and it is easy to say as an outsider and not be in the shoes and have to support a family and children. However, it might be the right and safer decision in the long run. Sooner or later, when corners are cut, violating procedures and rushing documentation in aviation is never the right thing to do. Safety is of utmost importance.
You would have to ask yourself if you could live in a situation where an accident happens because of this cutting corners, and people would lose their lives over it. You would be a part of the system, and even if not legally, you are morally responsible, as you could have avoided this. The system which worked for me so far is I ask myself, would I feel good if my wife sat in this aircraft? If the answer is no, I have to do something. As a Christian, I have been raised to do the right thing. God’s wisdom and love will guide me to take the right path and do the right thing.
If the top management is truly not on board with the SMS, there is always a way to report this to the FAA directly. Switzerland has a system where we can report anything we might consider unsafe anonymously to the authority, who then must follow up on this. This approach would be, however, the last resort. I still believe in the good in the people, and when faced with a fact-based problem and showing the costly consequences, every management would agree.
Hopefully, only the middle management or the floor leaders will think this way. However, sadly, the history of Boeing has shown that greed is the devil’s work, and it is still too familiar in our world. Nevertheless, in the case of Boeing, if the management had been made aware of the possible outcome, which we know now costs them way more than what they saved by cutting corners and not following the proper procedure, they might have reacted differently.
“A faithful person will be richly blessed, but one eager to get rich will not go unpunished. To show partiality is not good-yet a person will do wrong for a piece of bread. The stingy are eager to get rich and are unaware that poverty awaits them.” Proverb 28:20-22

Compose a 3-4 page essay performing a rhetorical analysis of your selected text.

Single Source Analysis
Attached Files:
File APA Sample Paper(2).pdf APA Sample Paper(2).pdf – Alternative Formats (548.562 KB)
File APA Template(2)(1).docx APA Template(2)(1).docx – Alternative Formats (21.203 KB)
File Rhetorical_Analysis.pdf Rhetorical_Analysis.pdf – Alternative Formats (30.245 KB)
You must successfully complete (grade of 70 or higher) your Research Proposal before beginning this assignment.
For your Single Source Analysis, you will begin your research on your chosen career/career field. The source text you analyze for this essay will make up a portion of the research for your Final Research Project.
Single Source Analysis Steps
1. From the University Library, select one source text on the topic of your chosen career or career field.
Peer-reviewed scholarly journal articles are the preferred type of source text. You may also select a book, and may analyze selected chapters or sections rather than the entire book (excluding textbooks). You are not restricted to articles or book chapters, but your selected text should be relevant, appropriate, and timely with regard to your career or career field overall.
Acceptable source texts should be approximately 12 or more full pages.
For help finding a source text, ASK A LIBRARIAN.
If you wish for me to approve your source prior to your analyzation, send the DIRECT LINK to your source in an email. I will respond with “Approved” or “Not Approved w/reason.”
2. Compose a 3-4 page essay performing a rhetorical analysis of your selected text.
Your essay should first and foremost examine the rhetorical situation and rhetorical appeals of your selected text.
The secondary purpose of your essay is to relate what you have discovered from your selected source text to your personal career search. What new information did you learn about your career/career field? What more do you hope to discover about your career/career field as you continue your research?
3. Submit your essay (below, “Attach File”/”Browse Local Files”) as a Word Document file attachment by the deadline.
4. Check to make sure your submission was received and uploaded correctly.
Single Source Analysis Guidelines
Word Document (.doc OR .docx) -see Assignment Format & Submission guidelines in the Syllabus*
Use the attached APA Template for formatting.
Use APA Sample Paper for content guidelines.
Title Page is not included in page count.
Abstract is NOT required for this assignment. If an abstract is present, is is not included in the page count.
You do not need a title for your essay (Single Source Analysis is fine); the title of your selected text is NOT the title of your essay. Include the full, correctly formatted title of your selected text in the introductory paragraph. Indicate what type of source you use (article, book chapter, etc.). If your text is from a larger text (ex. article from a journal), indicate this as well using correct and properly title formatting per APA guidelines.
All quotations and/or paraphrases must be use proper punctuation and be properly cited per APA guidelines parenthetically (in-text).
References page (not included in page count) should have the complete and fully-formatted bibliographical citation for your source text (copied from the library), including doi or direct url (permalink).
Remember: APA uses past-tense verbs!
*Do NOT submit assignments as .pdf or .pages files, links to Google docs or other cloud storages, or via e-mail. They will NOT be accepted, and you risk receiving a “late” or “no submission” penalty.
Essay Assessment
Your Single Source Analysis is worth 100 points. There is no grading rubric for this assignment. Your essay will be graded on completeness (did you fully and appropriately respond to all parts of the prompt(s)?) and quality (does your essay meet all requirements?).
I will provide written feedback on the assignment as well as occasional in-text comments at the time of grading.
Grades on Major Composition Assignments are non-negotiable. If there is a technical issue with your submission (wrong file type, etc.), I will enter a grade of 0 and request a resubmission of the assignment as part of my written feedback. Once the resubmission is graded, the 0 will be replaced with the actual grade. The same applies for submissions which do not meet the minimum requirements or do not follow the instructions for the assignment. I will only accept resubmissions if I have requested them. See Revision Policy from the Syllabus, below.
You may submit any assignment (except the Final Research Project) early (up to 48 hours prior to the deadline) and request feedback. I will conduct a cursory assessment of your assignment and provide written feedback for improvement. You may then resubmit your assignment with changes. I will provide a final grade for the last assignment submission received by the deadline.
All Major Composition Assignments are set so that you may submit as many times as necessary. For instance, if you accidentally upload an incorrect file, you do not need to email me about it. You can simply upload the correct file just as you did your first submission. I will always grade the last file submitted and received by the deadline.
Revision Policy (from the Syllabus)
You are allowed revision and regrading for one composition (excluding the Research Project) at the end of the semester. After your Review of Literature is graded and returned to you with my feedback, select the composition you would like to revise and resubmit. Revise your composition to the best of your ability and submit it by December 5. It will be graded at the same time as your Research Project, and your new grade will replace your original grade. If your revision receives a lower grade than your original grade, your original grade will be your final grade. Revising a composition is optional. Late revisions will not be accepted. Revisions may be submitted early but will not be graded early so there is no time spent estimating what you need to score on your Research Project, potentially compromising the quality of your work.
