His wording shows that he doesn’t know who he is and therefore believes he is a Monster as Ms. Petrocelli calls him. He accepts people’s judgments as his self-truth. Even though, he, himself, accepts the worst he still wants people to perceive him as a good person, especially his mom. Steve’s mom’s words cut deeper in him because his mom believes he didn’t do it while he knows he did. 5 days into the trial, his mother comes by and talks to him hoping to make him feel better, “I could still feel Mama’s pain.
This, in turn, caused Troy 's mother to abandon him, leaving him without love from a parent or anyone to show him the correct way to treat females, a sin that affects his relationship with Rose as an adult. His father 's treatment of Troy made Troy believe there was more to his suffering than what was humanly possible "The gal jumped and run off...and when my daddy turned to face me, I could see why the devil had never come to get him...cause he was the devil himself"(Wilson 52).This metaphor used by Troy, adds a certain weight to the gravity of his situation as a teen. His father wasn 't just cruel but was the devil, a symbol of pure hate and all evil.

The family was getting affect by the bother, but they still are there for him.
They did this because they felt that their dad’s were a burden on their shoulders as if they were slowing them down and the kids could survive without them. Elie once had these feelings about his dad when in the book he said that he thought his dad was dead, but Elie instantly regretted these thoughts because he had to protect his dad. Elie thought that if his dad died, he would no longer have a reason to live. Elie felt very strong about his dad because he was always protecting him and not letting him die, in one situation he would not let the other Jews throw him out of the cattle cart when they were on their way to Gleiwitz. But contrary to that Elie did give his father water when he had dysentery and Elie gave into the demands of his father.
The overall idea is love, the opinion that one may have is that one should always have love for someone to be happy and the 3 literary elements that may support one’s topic and opinion is symbols, setting, and characterization. First, symbols in “Growing Up” written by Gary Soto supports the theme that one shouldn’t take anger out on the people they love because something could happen at any time and they will regret what they said. The symbol “garden hose” shows that Maria is upset with her father for not wanting her to stay home. She takes anger out on her father, but she realizes after they leave there has been a horrible accident and so she starts to regret not saying goodbye to her father. She know longer knows if they are safe, so she starts to worry.
Addie Bundren is going to die?” to make him accept the fact that their mother will not live for much longer (Faulkner 40). Darl is seen as being atypical because he does not mourn, or pretend to mourn, as the rest of his family does. His words may come off as being a sadistic joke in light of his mother’s ill health, but he actually wishes to tell Jewel here that the situation will not change. Darl’s cognizance of Addie’s death when he is not near her is a sign of his attachment to Addie.
His mother provided a needed nurturing feature that he would need to give him the boost to return to the aspects of society. Krebs struggled to find ways to regain his stature in society and his mother felt it was her duty to help him along the way even if he was mean to her without understanding why he was doing such. Krebs would even tell his mother he did not love her, even though he did not mean it (Hemingway 170). His mother would be there to support her son, even after the hurtful comments that Krebs made towards her. It is hurtful in any form to see your children go through any pain and she would make sure that all could be done to get Harold back into the world.
Their happiness started to flow in the room until they found out that not all the family member would be allowed to go.

Above all, one of the things that really stood out in Jeannette’s life going hand in hand with forgiveness was her father being an alcoholic. She lived her life dealing with rages as well as experiencing sweet and memorable moments with her father, Rex. Jeannette was a daddy’s girl and always tried to look for the good in everyone after her mother told her this quote, “You have to find the redeeming quality and love the person for that” (Walls 144). Rex always wanted the best for his family even though sometimes he would not go the right way in handling things.
Imagine you chose to kill your best friend, What if you had no other choice? That happened in this case, George shot his close friend Lennie that was handicapped. George did the right thing in shooting Lennie. He would just ruin/slow down George’s plans.
I have sent you this letter to tell about the situation as it stands with Inspector Goole. If I knew about her issue I would have happily helped giving charity money for her to live a happy life with her child. Eva Smith was a kind girl and If you thought that I knew that she was having a difficult time in life and that’s why I fired her from her job, I did not. Your brother did not tell me. My point of view is that I could've helped her, but there was something within me that told me that she didn’t deserve our help.
“That fish was so full of life and fought so hard for his freedom that I had to let him go back where he belonged, to live his own life” ( Felsen 4). In the article and poem, “A Private Talk with Holly by Henry G. Felsen and “Wild Boy of the Road” by Karen Hesse, both writers focus on teens separating from their parents at a young age and leaving to live their own life. While Felsen’s article focuses on “with or without a word or warning-turns a back on home and walks out into the grown-up world forever” (4), Hesse’s poem on the other hand focuses on the idea of “His mother is wishing he would come home” (3)
“…I also survived circumcision, a barbaric practice designed to remind you as early as possible that your genitals are not your own,” (Carlin 6). George Denis Patrick Carlin known for his comedy being especially polemical and vulgar went against society, with his beliefs and words. He was known for speaking out about politics and religion, and how he disagreed with basically all of them. Whether it be his stand up or his autobiography, he delivered his messages in comedic ways, always throwing some humor at his mix of depression, anger, and rebellion against the world he grew up in. Carlin criticized daily life from the actions of society, to religion, and politics, but was able to make them laughable.
Mental Floss states, “The novella is ranked as the fifth most frequently challenged piece of literature on the American Library Association’s list of 100 Most Banned of Challenged Book between 2000 and 2009.” The book, “Of Mice and Men,” is from the point of view through a struggling man’s viewpoint and a mentally challenged man’s viewpoint during the Great Depression. Lennie is a troublemaker for George, and sometimes George has to make big decisions about so of his priorities throughout his life. I believe George did do the right thing by killing Lennie himself because George would rather have Lennie die with him doing it rather than anyone else, George knew he would act up again if he let him come with him, and George believes it was the best choice to make in the situation. Some people believe that George had another way out.
