We can all learn a thing a two from our elders and can never stop learning. We are all grateful for the sacrifices my father and his father made. Children are treated very strictly by their parents. But aunts and uncles are much nicer to their nephews and nieces. I remember I was not allowed to hang out with certain kids if my mom saw them as the trouble maker types.
He questions his mother’s actions as soon as she gets home, he knows that this message involves him receiving the truth from his mother. Oddly enough, his mother explains to him that she treats him this way through her words: “Because, Ed – you remind me of him”, this refers back to his father who promised her to leave this place, yet she is still here and so is her son, who is also the only one still here. Yet, her love as a mother still exists to him except that this time, he can actually notice it, his mother ends the conversation when she says “it takes a lot of love to hate you like this.” During the night of Christmas, after most of the people gathered and celebrated, Ed goes to the cemetery to pay a visit to his late father, showing a connection and the existence of feelings, which in this case is love between the living and the
Similarly, Odysseus also sees his dead mother, Anticlea and she tells him of how she died from a heartbreak after mourning for his return. Seeing the dead spirit of his mother he “grieves... through pang on pang of tears” (11.63-64). Odysseus shows sympathy towards his mother because he realizes that he has caused not only her, but also his father, wife, and son to grieve and suffer due to his absence. Although Odysseus is a warrior to his enemies, he after all, is a loving husband, father, and a son to the people he cares for. Odysseus proves that being a hero is not solely about strength, fearlessness, and victory.

2-Healing and Forgiveness as a Sign of Altruistic Filicide: Morrison points out "the past, until you confront it, until you live through it, it keeps coming back in other forms. The shapes redesign themselves in other constellations, until you get a chance to play it over again" (qtd.in Cássia Freitas de Aquino 198). Beloved's return to 124 Bluestone Road is very symbolic because she has the key to forgiveness for herself, her mother, sister, and the whole Bluestone Road community. A-Recreating a lost Relationship: Sethe and Beloved: Although Beloved could not forgive her mother for sending her alone to the other side, Sethe comes to realize that only chance to overcome her past as a slave and her altruistic filicide is to remember and recreate her past. She has to narrate her life story, and confront Beloved in order to release herself from the psychological wounds of the past as well to forgive herself for the unforgivable crime;
While in the concentration camps, most abandoned all of their ethics involving family, but Wiesel stayed with his father whenever he possibly could. Wiesel loved and cared deeply for his father and furthermore, as the Holocaust began to affect their lives, he felt responsible for his father, but ultimately, as his humanity was further tested, Wiesel also felt burdened by him. It was extremely evident that Wiesel cared about and loved dearly for his father because he made it evident in his actions. In Spring of 1944, World War II continued to rage near Sighet, Transylvania where Wiesel and his family resided in a small Jewish community. Since emigration certificates to Palestine could still be bought at that time, Wiesel asked his father “to sell everything, to liquidate everything, and to leave”
A Hidden Crime “There is a comfort in knowing that you don’t have to pretend anymore, that you are going to do everything within your power to heal.” -Ellen Bass. Family is meant to be our love, support and comfort zone no matter what we go through, unfortunately that's not the case for everyone. I have a close friend along with her younger sisters that feel uncomfortable whenever their uncle visits. As a family, their uncle acts respectful in public but different when he is alone with the girls. One day there was a knock on the door and one of the younger sisters went over to open it, when the uncle entered he reached over for a handshake and as soon as he realized they were alone his other hand swinged back under for a tight grip.
Although she was not related to Hektor, Helen’s mourning speech served as a way of retelling her history, celebrating his life, and painting the final image of his legacy. Helen was the “third and last” (Iliad 24.761) to lament Hektor’s death. Andromache was the first, and she focused on how he deserted his family in his quest for bloody glory. Hekabe spoke second and remarked that Hektor, her favorite son, was now dead. Helen’s song of sorrow acted as a bridge between those two laments; she called attention to Hektor’s kindness and humanity as well as his lasting effect after his death.
A second instance is when Hazel writes a eulogy for Gus and goes to see him, even though her parents do not want her to. Thirdly, the theme appears when Peter Van Houten speaks with Hazel and explains how his grief about his daughter’s death revealed his true self. The theme of The Fault in Our Stars is that death is a part of life, so we need to live our best lives each day. The theme that

As a family responsibly should be equal. Sisters and brother could take turns taking their mom/dad to doctors’ appointments. The grandchildren could even help by reading, talking, or walking around with their grandparent. If I was in a similar situation caring for my loved one I would go at it alone. I feel as though I shouldn’t have to ask family to assist me with caring for a family member whom we all know and love.
Her brother died in front of her, her mother sent her away, and she witnessed almost everyone she loved depart from the world. She had more than enough reasons to quit, but she decided to stay strong through it all. She is brave enough to live with the memories, and rather than thinking of them as a burden, she wears them as a badge of honour. b. "You give me this Saumensch of a book and think it 'll make everything good when I go tell my mama that we 've just lost our last one?"(262).
In chapter six, while bypassing a village they were captured by villagers because the boys were believed to be rebels; another boy from their home village, Mattru Jong, spoke out and said they were not rebels. Every page I turned, there was more shock, sadness, and a wanting to help that kept my eyes glued the pages and my mind wanting to engulf more of the story. One of the most saddening parts of this book was when Ishmael was at one of his lowest points: He had lost the other five boys journeying with him, including his brother Junior, and two months later ran into six other boys from his village. Him and these boys were walking to a village which a lot of Mattru Jong villagers were at. Just on the outskirts of this village were banana farms and one man working in them, that used to live in Mattru Jong, told Ishmael that he saw his mother, father, younger, and older brother.
O’Brien started his chapter with Rat Kiley writing a sincere letter to his deceased best friend, Curt Lemon’s sister about how he feel sorry and how he will take care of her after the war (64-65). Therefore, if we trace things back a little bit, we can clearly see that O’Brien is writing that way to express his fellow soldier’s sorrow of losing his best friend. His writing style is unique in a way that he doesn’t express the feelings just bluntly. He could just add words that emphasizes sadness, but instead, he added the act of his friend to show the underlying feeling about one during the war. Therefore, after reading about that chapter, people will say they were so cruel during the war, but if they think deeply, all chapter is about the writer’s friend grieving for his dead
