In chapter 6, Gutman says, “It I important to surround ourselves with positive people – people who are both respectful of our desire to enact change and who understand how to offer the emotional support we need” (Gutman, 2005, p. 90). Through this process of getting braces and a back brace, my sister needed positivity as we all do during situations such as this. My parents were also really encouraging and helpful when I experienced a loss shortly after high school. Even though I blamed them, they were still there to help me through
A mother and daughter love and support each other through good times and bad times. In an article written by Eavan O 'Brien, he talks in further detail about the dynamic mother-daughter relationships have. He states, "before sisterhood; there was the knowledge - transitory, fragmented, perhaps, but original and crucial - of mother-and-daughterhood" (JSTOR). This alludes to how people should value the first person who a child develops a relationship with. Hester and Pearl share these same qualities and more throughout the novel.

This is a book filled with excerpts from Cornelia Hancock who was a female nurse during the Civil War. In the book it really shows how woman like Cornelia wanted to serve for their nation. Not being able to do the actual fighting, they found other ways to be of service. Hancock faced the prejudices most female nurses did at the time, but still worked tirelessly to assist as many soldiers as possible. Although most of what really happened to Hancock was censored, this book still shows the true heroism woman of that time
It’s when you know you’re licked before you begin but you begin anyway and you see it through no matter what. You rarely win, but sometimes you do” (Lee 149). Atticus’ quote of courage foreshadows the results of the trial, he knew the end result of the trial, but he fought against it anyways, although he did not win. Another act that justifies Atticus’ courage is keeping Calpurnia despite Aunt Alexandra’s strong disagreement. Atticus said: “She’s a faithful member of this family and you’ll have to simply accept things the way they are” (Lee 182), this reveals Atticus’ courage because he kept Calpurnia even though there are controversies of having an African American house member as shown by Alexandra.
“The Lord our God is merciful and forgiving, even though we have rebelled against him”, Daniel 9:9. In the Scarlet Letter, Nathaniel Hawthorne portrays Hester Prynne as a kind, strong, and humble character. Although as Hester sins, this does not define her as a person or take away from her value as a person. Hester is a humble person throughout the entire book because she is always caring nice and honest. As Hester is appointed for adultery and admits to it, she is completely honest and doesn’t lie and straight forward with the townspeople.
Her use of flashbacks tells the different stories of each family, and eventually connects them all near the end. She uses metaphors to express the connection between both the girl and her mother. The similes Tan used are included to compare the differences between the mother and daughter she refers to. Tan has a theme of the importance of family in all her books, but The Joy Luck Club focuses on the most important relationship there is, the one shared between a girl and her mother, and it can overcome even the most different of
The author J.K Rowling does a good job of revealing her theme throughout the novel. Rowling sends her message out throughout the novel, with all of the obstacles and challenges Harry and his friends go to. But they stay together and figure things out, they never gave up on eachother. In the end it all came together and they helped out Hogwarts. Personally I agree with this topic because when people are in danger or when something bad is going to happen people usually shut down, but the strong people stand up and fight.
Even with all the mocking and ridicule that was put on her, she still had the strength to push through it and carry on with her life. She raised her daughter, Pearl, through it all; she provided for money for them. She even gave to the poor. People began to realize that there was more to Hester Prynne than just the letter. They started to see who she really was; and because of that wanted the “A” to stand for something better.
A good nurse shows great care for their patients trying to get them back to good health. So many neonatal nurses save babies lives by just being there for them and treating them everyday so they can become a healthy baby and go home to their family. These nurses keep these many babies alive, ones of which should have died the first day of entering this world. I think a lot of people take for granted the things that doctors and nurses do for a living. People do not realize their job is to give the best most humane care possible.
The memoir has a linear structure, going chronologically through her life. I felt like I was definitely more interested in her story as it went farther along, however there was never a spot where I wanted to stop reading. Her teenage years and on were quite gripping, seeing her coming into her own as a young woman while trying to keep the family together emotionally and economically. I cringed at times, and at others I was truly inspired by her unconditional love for her family even when they treated her so poorly. As the reader you can really see the strength she gained as a child and it inspires.
Not only is this quote beautiful and produces a strong emotional connection with James’ mother, it reveals a theme in the book. The theme that injustice will not prevail. And though James’ mother was aware that injustice existed, she did not accept it and become resentful, she instead valued her children and all the shades of color they contained, and relived her life through them. She was an old wooden table that
She always saw the good in whatever situation and turned it around. While Jeannette took the time to question almost anything, she also took the time to understand the beauty of everything. This quite perfectly foreshadows the ending to her book. Throughout The Glass Castle Jeannette is facing a battle of creating a pleasant outcomes for each and every tribulation she faces, trudging through the miserable times, but she always wonders what the point of that is if she is just going to end up disappointed again. However, while Jeannette is having this conversation with her mother, she is reminded that her story is not over.
Slavery prevented Brent from fulfilling the expectation of white womanhood by being restraint from preserving her purity. She believed that baring a white man’s child would mean she could be bought and taken better care of, along with her child at the time. As stated by Brent, “My strongest weapon with him was gone” (Brent, The New Tie to Life). If she were to have not been a slave, she would have been able to keep her purity. According to Brent, “The painful and humiliating memory will haunt me to my dying day” Brent, A Perilous Passage in The Slave Girl’s Life).
