The essay Be Specific by Natalie Goldberg was an essay thats main point to me was respect. Respect is something that every individual deserves. A synopsis of what respect means to me all leads back to the golden rule, treat others as you want to be treated. The example that Natalie used that was the most realistic to me was when she said "Hey, girl, get in line.". Many people in today 's world do not take the time to use names it is always hey you, dude, bro, girl, and so the list goes on; as a result our generation is known for being disrespectful in regards to previous years.

The memoir, The Glass Castle, by Jeannette Walls, centers around her unorthodox childhood, with her parents avoiding parental responsibilities and acting in accordance to their non-conformist beliefs. During some events in the book, responsibility is seen as equal to self-sufficiency in this book, and Rex and Rose Mary encourages Jeannette and the other children to look out for themselves instead of depending on others. Even though Jeannette’s parents were irresponsible and reckless, they managed to instill responsible, independent, self-sufficient qualities within Jeannette, creating a well-adjusted child. Hardships as a child allow the opportunity to develop a thick skin and become resilient. From a young age, Jeannette Walls and her siblings learned how to be independent for their basic needs because of their father’s, Rex, alcoholism, and their mother, Rose Mary’s, carefree attitude and indulgence in the arts.

Throughout “St Lucy’s Home for Girls Raised by Wolves” by Karen Russell, the members of the pack go from wild, degenerate wolf girls to [mostly] proper girls of human society. One pack member in particular, the main character Claudette, undergoes major transformations throughout the story. Her development, as with the development of the other girls, varies between rapid and a slower, more placid speed. How fast, and how much, she develops depends on the stage and the events that happen therein. There is much evidence to this point, Claudette’s directly relates to the stage that she is in, but despite her adaptations in the end Claudette cannot fully adapt to human culture.
Molly Ivins uses humor to make a compelling argument for gun control in her op-ed newspaper article, “Get a Knife, Get a Dog, but Get Rid of Guns.” Although she mentions many advantages of banning guns and using knives as substitutes, she fails to address some points in her arguments. For instance, Ivins suggests that if the reader “want[s] protection,” he or she should “[g]et a dog” instead of a gun (216). Though this solution may seem sensible, Ivins fails to point out the shortcomings of getting a dog as a safety measure over a gun. Arguably, a dog is not as effective as a gun because an offender who wishes to commit a crime against someone or someone’s property can easily manipulate the dog.

This related to me at this time of life, because I am in the middle of figuring out what I want to do for my career.
