He is their safe haven and secure base. They will trust in Him through the storms and depend on Him for everything. I am progressing into a secure relationship with God. He is my Rock and my safety and He loves me unconditionally. However, last year I went through a trial in my life where I was ambivalent towards God.
Throughout the memoir, we learn about Baca’s father through the memories he would share. Baca does not degrade his father, even though his father was not there for him. The lack of a father only gave Baca a greater determination to become a loving father for his family and to live life the best he can (Baca, 6, 2001). As a young child, Baca was afraid of his father’s temperament, but Baca still yearned his father’s love “I want to go to him and hug him but I’m afraid.” (Baca, 144, 2001). Baca’s father was a strong factor that affected Baca’s life.
After reading Post University’s civility code, I would have to say that it aligns with my personal and professional community perfectly. As a child, my mom and grandpa raised me to respect everyone and their property, to have integrity, and take responsibility for my actions regardless of the consequences. They taught me that opinions are opinions and it is not my place to force people to agree or share mine. Once I joined the Army it was not hard for me to adapt because my family had already instilled the Integrity, Respect, and Responsibility that it takes to be successful as a soldier. As a recruiter, I believe that respect, integrity, and responsibility work best in every situation and community.
When his father passes away, he begins to cherish his family values. Gogol is very caring and committed to his passions. He follows his dreams, which make him into a successful individual. Case Conceptualization Ego Psychology Ashoke demonstrates his id, ego, and superego in various instances. His ego consists of his ability to have a stable job and family in this country by following its societal rules.
We can all learn a thing a two from our elders and can never stop learning. We are all grateful for the sacrifices my father and his father made. Children are treated very strictly by their parents. But aunts and uncles are much nicer to their nephews and nieces. I remember I was not allowed to hang out with certain kids if my mom saw them as the trouble maker types.
Moore exhibits how, “… few lives hinge on any single moment or decision or circumstance,” and that there was not defining difference between him and the incarcerated man who shares his name (182). The main difference between him and the other Wes Moore is the collection of family, culture, and experience that Moore had in his upbringing. His mother and grandparents, by providing structure and the opportunity to go to private and military school, “… made it clear that they cared if [he] succeeded, and eventually so did [he]” (115). His mother and grandparents, through their constant attempts to keep Moore looking beyond his seemingly hopeless future, created expectations for him that he would ultimately want for himself. On the other hand, the other Wes Moore never seemed to have any meaningful expectations that he could seek.
I understand Troncosco’s context through my own background. His parents came to United Stated as an immigrant and support him even though his parents doesn’t know much English. Troncosco’s parents also set expectation as the same as my parents did to me. “Highest expectations for moral behavior, for self- respect for being good to others.” My parents came to United Stated when I was eleven and I remember how much they wanted me to learn how to be responsible and follow expectation as to respecting others. So, when Troncosco mentioned about his parents, I remembered how my parents used to tell me the same because I understand how much they have sacrificed their life to bring me
Solomon also cares for his children as they have to travel with Solomon’s wife as well. On the plantation, he still cares about his family and he knows they are still there waiting for his return. Solomon cares about the other slaves, and he wants their well being. When Patsey asks Solomon to drown her, he will not do it because he cares for her too much. When Solomon becomes a free man again, he still cares for his family, even after twelve years.
The events that have followed have been infuriating. As a family, we have learned to follow God’s path and to put our trust in Him. I am learning to keep the good memories that I have cherished since August 2007. A put a smile on my face and remember that David would not want me to be sad. David has had the most impact on me; he taught me how to serve others before myself, be sarcastic, stay positive, and enjoy life.
The most influential person in my life is probably not even aware of the things he has taught me or of how much he has affected my existence. This person has always been in my life, from the day I first opened my eyes to this present moment. This person is my best friend, a guide, and a source of strength and support. He is whom I look up to with loving trust and pride. He showed me how to reach my dreams.
Throughout my childhood, my parents have taught me to be appreciative of my rights as an American and what to many, are privileges, and coming from a modest background, they have instilled me to respect and value others before myself, regardless of their economic status. Because of my parents’ hardships, I have been taught a mantra of “work hard for a better future”, and I later learned that my father’s true dream was beyond achieving personal success, but rather, he wanted to pave a way to success for my sister and me. I believe that it is my responsibility to fully take advantage of my opportunities, because my American Dream is still alive. While I carry my parents’ background, I do not share their history of poverty, and I am met with new open doors and resources that my parents were not as fortunate to have. I want to pursue a higher education, and I aspire to become a stem cell scientist, which will allow me to contribute to research that holds promises of new cures and treatments.
