• The strength and will to you will come

    There are amazing people in life. It would seem that the circumstances finally knocked them out of the usual rut: someone was injured, injured or, as a result of a serious illness, was helpless. But then this man still forced himself to return to the system, regain strength, strength. Some of these people, even under very strict medical checks, continue to serve in the Armed Forces. What played the decisive role here? Huge willpower? Purposefulness? Ability in any situation not to lose courage?

    In principle, of course, the first, the second, and the third can somehow express themselves before other factors. However, life experience literally at every step suggests: very much and very much depends on the physical perfection of the person, on the burden that he takes upon himself, on the will that guides him and subordinates his actions. Let us recall the words of the famous Soviet writer V. Kaverin: "Much seems impossible, until the reverse human reason and will will prove."

    . .. Cadets of the training motorized rifle company performed exercises on throwing grenades. Together with them, the deputy commander of the company for political affairs, Lieutenant Alexander Kiselev, is on an "attack".The officer sees how, in six

    steps, the cadet Ergali Nurtazin acts according to all the rules: he intercepted the submachine gun in his left hand, took out the grenade with his right hand, grabbed the ring with his left hand, pulled out the safety pin. Now he will take aim and throw it.

    However, it happened completely incomprehensible: the cadet suddenly shifted the grenade to his left hand, and the machine gun to the right. Kiselev noticed how the trigger lever, which held the drummer on the battle platoon, slid into the grass. So, before the explosion - three to four seconds. Nurtazin seemed numb: fear kept muscles, body. ..

    Alexander did not hesitate for a moment. Of course, he could fall to the ground, cover his head with a helmet. But the officer had only one idea: to shield, save the subordinate. I rushed to Nurtazin, with both hands I grabbed a fist of a cadet who was convulsively clenched in a grenade, in order to have time to drop it. Did not have time. Before the eyes flashed fire. ..

    The lieutenant was brought to the hospital unconscious. There he suffered a state of clinical death. And the terrible news: the grenade exploded with his hands.

    Friends, numerous letters - sometimes from completely unfamiliar people - multiply Alexander's forces in his difficult struggle to return to active life. On the title page of the book of essays on the courage of the heroes of the Great Patriotic War on the front and in peace days, sent by the former commandant of the cadet company, Captain M. Gaiduk, Kiselev read the poems of Gleb Pagirev:

    Lieutenant Kiselev thought about the poem for hours. I understood: his former commander, Captain Haiduk, wants the poet's beliefs to be perceived by his poet as coming from his own heart.

    In the decision to return to the fighting system, Kiselev and the letter of his youngest friends strengthened him:

    "Hello, dear Sasha!

    Write to you students of the 6th grade "A" secondary school № 245 in Moscow. We read about your feat in the newspaper. Our pioneer detachment decided to fight for the right to be called your name. In our class there are 38 students. Our class is very friendly. All the boys want to be the same as you. .. We would be very happy if you accepted our invitation and came to Moscow to our school. "

    The USSR Minister of Defense granted Kiselev's request to continue his service in the Armed Forces. I believed him in the words: "I can not without the army."By decree of the Presidium of the Supreme Soviet of the USSR for the courage and courage shown in the performance of his official duty, Alexander was awarded the Order of the Red Star. He returned to his own regiment, and later, not allowing himself any indulgence, he graduated from the VI Lenin Military-Political Academy with a gold medal, was enlisted in the adjuncture.

    It seems that he would hardly have managed to successfully cope with the hardest trials that Kiselyov suffered, the one who did not have a strong sport in the mode of the day. After all, in the hospital, the officer, overcoming the pain, resumed systematic morning exercises, exhausted repeated special exercises to better master the prosthesis, learn how to do without outside help. Even he lectured at the academy himself, and if the teacher, looking at him, kindly suggested: "Maybe slower to read?", Categorically refused: "No, no, thank you, I'm quite in time."

    Unfortunately, not all young people are aware of the need to temper themselves physically and morally. It is evident, obviously, the lack of habit to train the body. If a teenager does not engage in regular sports, in most cases, it is to blame, sadly, we, the parents. In the family, you will agree, everyone knows very well how training, agility, strength can come in handy in life. So, it depends on us how much we drag our children into a world where they not only compete for the records of sportsmanship, but also gives out a win-win ticket for that unexpected situation when our ability to resist any adversity of fate and to win is manifested.

    Again, in order to strengthen the body and spirit, constant physical training is required. And, of course, the occupation of the kind of sport that you like.

    Anatoly Petrovich is now in his sixties, but he still goes out every morning to the school stadium next to him, slowly measuring it round by the circle. There was a time when he often had to run alone: ​​neither the son nor the daughter-in-law showed any particular desire to follow his example. Anatoly Petrovich patiently, gradually converted them into his faith. In recent months, when the joy of morning classes increasingly shared with his grandfather's grandson, Sasha's parents also "registered" at the stadium all the time.

    - Grandfather, are we running away from a heart attack?- the grandson is attached by a number, and in his tone, and with a smile, repeating in those moments my father, who just asks a similar question for Anatoly Petrovich.

    - No, Sashok. Why from a heart attack? We just practice. I want you to always be strong, hardy, like your dad.

    Anatoly Petrovich often catches himself thinking that he wants to tell his grandson why he made friends with the sport. Twisted his sudden illness, for months he was chained to the bed. Gradually the disease receded. However, finally healthy man Anatoly Petrovich felt himself only when he began to regularly perform special exercises on the advice of the attending physician, to run in the morning. Since then, for the past two decades, he has not given up his passion, which has become vital for him. Very pleased that he managed to attach to the physical gymnastics of all members of the family, which neighbors do not accidentally call the most athletic in the house.

    However, most importantly, Anatoly Petrovich does not even see this fact. What is more important for him is what he, in fact, aspired to: his own son, who was not too happy with sports in his youth, is now far from indifferent to Sasha's physical development. Now no one will persuade Anatoly Petrovich that it is from the

    of the head of the family that the love of children for sports largely depends. From the head of the family!

    Interestingly still it turns out! When we are talking about the education of the future man, the communist tomorrow, we first of all mean his mental, spiritual wealth. And can we forget that the solution of the grandiose tasks of our social development largely depends on the degree of efficiency, physical energy, creative longevity of each of us? On the one hand, we seem to agree - a harmoniously developed person should combine spiritual wealth, moral purity, physical perfection, but on the other. ..

    Physical development of personality has been and remains one of the most important areas of the multifaceted educational process. It is not out of place, I think, to recall the statement of K. Marx:
