How this shows sacrifice is Lucy accepts her fate to leave her family for the better even if she really doesn’t and Nora Sandigo shows sacrifice from being forced to do all that work and wasting her life. The second similarity is the dialogue shown in the two texts through papa saying “Your mother and I have decided …” Papá walked over and put his arm on Mamá’s shoulder.
