He started telling me how he would move houses and schools but he also told me how he missed his sister and hadn’t seen her in almost a year. That’s when I decided to ask him why. “It is quite simple you see, I’m a foster kid” he replied. “What does that mean, a foster kid?” I asked “Being a foster kid is the worst thing ever, you get bounced around from house to house always getting abused and the worst part is that you are never good enough to stay at one place, I mean I was never even good enough to stay with my own parents that they decided to leave my sister and I alone.” “That is not true I’m sure your parents love you maybe they had their reasons” I replied attempting to make eye contact with him but he was too distracted looking at the floor. “What reason is good enough for someone to leave their kids” he replies in a monotone voice.
Food plays a big part in my culture identity because there is different types of food I like, which may be different from others. Most food that represents me and my cultural identity is junk food.

“Charles” a story by Shirley Jackson, highlights the the narrator's son Laurie and his “classmate” Charles. Due to a serious case of parental myopia in the narrator and her husband, they fail to see that Charles is merely a clever device used by Laurie to fool his parents. Laurie uses this to his advantage and describes his own doings using the character Charles. His parents do not realise this until the very end of this story when the teacher explains that there is no such boy called Charles in her class.

Flowers for Algernon Argumentative Essay In the short story, “Flowers for Algernon” written by Daniel Keyes, Charlie Gordon made a disastrous mistake; proceeding with the operation to raise his IQ. The surgery backfired on Charlie in numerous ways. One of the reasons being, Charlie learned that who he thought were his close friends did not appreciate him.
