Project #87216 - Discussion board classmate reply post to The Road Not Taken; Robert Frost

For your Discussion Board reply your clasmate Brendon Howard post. Post must be 75–100 words.  Carefully edit your posts and remember that this is a course that addresses composition; thus, your Discussion Board Forum posts will be graded on the following: content, organization, writing style, and grammar.

 When composing your reply, note that statements such as “I like what you said” or “I disagree with your comment” do not count as replies. You must explain why you liked or disliked the thread by adding additional thoughts or ideas if you agreed with the author or by providing alternative thoughts or ideas when you disagree with the author. Keep in mind that, regardless of whether you agree or disagree with your classmates’ opinions, you must be respectful and courteous in every interaction.    

Responding to a classmate’s post requires both the addition of new ideas and analysis. A particular point made by the classmate must be addressed and built upon by your analysis in order to move the conversation forward. Thus, the response post is a rigorous assignment that requires you to build upon posts to develop deeper and more thorough discussion of the ideas introduced in them. As such, reply posts must do more than merely affirm, restate or unprofessionally quarrel with the previous post(s). Instead, your responsive posts must make a valuable, substantive contribution to the discussion

The Road Not Taken; Robert Frost

The Road Not Taken by Robert Frost is a poem that describes a choice at a fork in the road, to take one road or another and is symbolic of the choices that are made along the path of life.  Most readers understand this analogy as something that the Frost chose because he wanted to exemplify simple life choices, but in a spiritual sense, the road not taken can take on many forms.  Such as, the choice to follow Christ or not.  According to Matthew 7:13-14 Christians should “Enter through the narrow gate; for the gate is wide and the way is broad that leads to destruction, and there are many who enter through it. For the gate is small and the way is narrow that leads to life, and there are few who find it.” Frost wants the reader to understand the dilemma before them as they reach that fork in the road.  This is very similar to the journey we take as Christians.  Do we follow the things that the Bible tells us to do or do we follow what the world tells us to do?  Like the road we face in our Christian walk the writer speaks about two roads that are equally worn.  Many people confuse this dilemma with a choice between two very different roads, but the poem specifically states that the roads are equally worn.  In the case of a Christian walk or a Sinful walk, these roads have also been equally worn.  So the choice is to take one and regret the other or take one and plan the go back to the other another day.  The symbolic nature of The Road Not Taken by Robert Frost is intriguing.  Just as many people will choose to make one choice as they do the other.  As it relates to the Christian walk most people can relate to the decision to either follow God or Follow sin, but most people choose to relate the walk with the Lord as the Road less travelled because it is described as the narrow path.  Frost expresses a feeling of regret for the road not taken and portrays that with the phrase “I shall be telling this with a sigh”.  This imagery states that while the road that the author took was the one less travelled, it is, none the less, the one he chose.  These decisions are a big part of your walk with the Lord and can be a major part of your testimony to others.
