As Johnny goes through this difficult stage in life he decides to run away not thinking about where he’s going to stay or how he’s going to get food.

In the text, Johnny comes home after getting a good report from school and his foster mother and sister tell him that he is not going to be living with them anymore.
Throughout the majority of the play, Walter wants to change the way they live and constantly tries convincing his mother to use the insurance money to start a liquor store.

Near the end of the play on page 148 when Walter has to decide if the family keeps the house or receives the money he says this to Lindner: Walter. And we have decided to move into our house because my father- my father- he earned it for us brick by brick.

In the excerpt from Father by Alice Walker it states, “I regret most about my relationship with my father is that it did not improve...I’d like to tell him how hard I am working to understand.” This demonstrates how afterwards when Alice grew up she understood her father’s relation and wanted to change it for the better. For example, page 225, paragraph 3, of The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini it states, “Now, fifteen years after I’d buried him, I was learning that Baba had been a thief… from me the right to know I had a brother.” This highlights that Amir finally understood his father’s action through the years and accepted his father for what he kept hidden.

Life is like a math equation everyone has to solve it to obtain a solution, but there has to be experienced to gather the right result. As a result, the fathers of both narrator’s were finally accepted and the narrators realized their parents meaning of
