“Heritage is something that your parents instill in you, your morals, your heart, mind and soul”. “Culture is something that changes over time and is passed down to the next generation and so on”, these two things should be something that is important to you. In Alice Walker’s short story “Everyday Use” and Bharati Mukherjee’s personal essay, “Two ways to Belong in America” by Bharati Mukherjee the comparison of Maggie and Mira show two women who hold on to their original culture while Bharati and Dee want another life. These stories make me wonder the same question. Why do the younger siblings appreciate their culture more?
Martin Luther King Junior once said “Let the wife make the husband glad to come home, and let him make her sorry to see him leave”. The importance of home is an universally applicable subject from Odyssey that has a meaning that can be applicable to our lives.

Xenia is used in the Odyssey to show the importance of home.

Louise Erdrich’s novel Tracks, serves as a tool to awaken the past of the people that have been forgotten, and their culture that is no longer thought about or misconstrued. This novel offers insight and powerful knowledge into the rich lives of Native Americans. Erdrich uses specific characters in her novel to show the culture and religion of one specific group of Native Americans. Tracks connects the reader to the lives and struggles of Ojibwa people by telling the story of three main characters, Nanapush, Fleur, and Pauline, as they fight against modern colonialism. Nanapush and Fleur demonstrate their adherence to traditional Ojibwa religion and culture by doing traditional forms of medicine and connecting as one with the land, while Pauline demonstrates her rejection to Ojibwa religion and culture by denying her Native American religion and
Appreciation is one of the important thought that goes through the story. Louise Erdrich is plainly appreciative for what her mom has given her: Saving her own life to permit her later to manage another youngster; life itself through birth; and life once more, through her salvage from the flame. It is her appreciation that pulls Louise Erdrich home to peruse books to her mom, "to peruse so everyone can hear, to peruse long into the dull in the event that I should, to peruse throughout the night." Although it is inferred that her arrival comes at a pivotal crossroads in her own life (suggested by her reference to her fizzled life), it is an uncommon youngster to demonstrate a guardian such generous appreciation. She comes back to satisfy the capacity that her dad started in the clinic, that of perusing so anyone might hear.
In this letter, Adams had a soothing tone that makes John know that she is not angry with him, and she is letting him know that she is lucky to have a son who gave her “pleasing hopes” (Adams). throughout their life and informs him that “Nothing is wanting with you but attention, diligence, and steady application” (Adams). to reassure him that he is special and will achieve great success in life. In conclusion, Abigail Adams wrote this passionate letter to her son to offer advice and support before he took on this massive journey traveling around the globe. She wanted to express to her precious son to take on any opportunity that the universe threw at him for he is not the only one with admirable qualities.

She decides to “come back. For the ones I left behind, For the ones who cannot out.” (Cisneros, 110). Her decision to come back and help the people that could not leave made the community an overall better place. It brought a sense of hope and opportunistic thinking to her hometown. This was the same decision as made from Lebron James facing the predicament of Home v.s.
The line that speaks to me the most is the last line of the play. In Line 44, Lisa’s grandmother says, “It’s funny how things blow loose like that.” Lisa is afraid of what her grandmother will think of her college experiences, but her grandmother senses the struggle and still loves her. C. The grandmother represents times that are gone, and yet her love for Lisa does not change. Lisa needs that support as she goes forward in her life. We all need that safety net as we struggle forward; this message of the safety in the middle of the uncertain change is true and descriptive of our early college years today as well.
