This passage seemed important to me because it is describing who El Tiríndaro is. He is not a recurring character but I would consider him very important. He was the person who eventually got Enrique across the Rio Grande and to the United States. Enrique had to trust him and it also shows you have to be careful of who you trust because Lourdes was tricked earlier in the book was an immigration lawyer. It also shows that you can’t judge someone based on their appearance.
"An Hour with Abuelo" by, Judith Ortiz Cofer illustrates the theme of hope and high ideals or goals. In the story it says " And I think he could've been a teacher if he wanted it bad enough. Nobody is going to stop me from doing what I want in life."(Ortiz Cofer596)
1. Voces inocentes A young boy, in an effort to have a normal childhood in 1980 's El Salvador, is caught up in a dramatic fight for his life as he desperately tries to avoid the war which is raging all around him. War is never pretty, and the film has its share of violence and stomach-churning horror.

Montejano argued that the mexican were shaped to be a minority group by the development of socially constructed racial difference between them and higher races in the United States, and depreciating them from job security in higher paying jobs, which is tied to Glenn’s argument of that Mexicans did not came to the United states as a Minority group. Montejano argument signifies how the mexican got from being different from one another in their society by social hierarchy to being all considered as minority in the United States despite their old social class. American were separated by hypothetical barriers from mexicans that made them believe that they were the dominate race over Mexican . For example, Mrs. millar, an american
Love and respect are a couple of the few things that will last forever, but they are not always shown. In the Russian folk tale retold by Leo Tolstoy, “The Old Grandfather and His Little Grandson” and “Abuelito Who”, an informal yet intimate poem by Sandra Cisnero, the universal theme is “love and respect your elders”. A universal theme is “a message about life or human nature that is so fundamental to human existence that is true for all people of all time periods and cultures.” (Sato, 76) These themes aren’t restricted to just one particular place or time, but reappear over and over again, all over the place.
The ideal room for a teenager is one that has walls cluttered with posters or quotes of famous men and women. Every morning a teen wakes up and is surrounded by images of those that he or she admires and goes to sleep with the idol like figures watching over him or her.

One cannot help but look at the life of another and attempt to model one’s own life after the other. Following someone else is how humans have survived, one sees what works and begins to do the same.

Luisa’s father did not approve of her relationship with Marquez’s father. When he was still young, Marquez was taken to live with his maternal grandparents.
