“I have eleven children, and I am twenty-six times a grandma, and I have seen them all through their silly seasons, and when it come on them they will run the Devil bowlegged keeping up with their mischief. I think she’ll wake when she tires off.” This quote was said by Rebecca Nurse who is a religious woman in her seventies. She is helpful to society and fights for what is right. Everyone in Salem appreciates her for her bold attitude and strong-willed personality. I am most similar to Rebecca Nurse because she is loyal to her friends, understanding of others, and a courageous woman.
The jails were infested with rats and lice, which was very unhygienic, many people died of illnesses. Over a dozen people died in Salem Jail (Weiser), if the family wanted to give the relative a proper burial, they had to pay for the removal of the body. Sarah Good was sentenced to death, but was pregnant so her execution was delayed (Weiser), similarly to what Abigail’s mother did to get her children out of prison. Kathleen Benner Duble’s The Sacrifice, accurately describes the Salem Witch Trials, as the author describes puritan life during the witch hysteria, and the shocking conditions of Salem Jail where witches were held as they awaited trial. The novel portrays everyday lifestyle during the Salem Witch Trials, giving the reader a better understanding of the time, and accurately depicts Salem Jail, describing how the accused lived in bondage.
When she came back from church, “she [pointed] her finger” at Constancia because she felt like Connie did not respect her feelings (Ortiz, 16). She was disappointed and angry at the fact that Connie didn’t help her out at church. This shows that the lack of a close family relationship will cause problems between family members. When you respect and value others, they will feel fortunate to have as their
She lived in in a watch shop that she and her family inherited before her first birthday. Her father was always working in the shop so above the shop was a home that Corrie Ten Boom and her siblings stayed in most of the day while being watched by their aunts (“Corrie Ten Boom,” World Biographies). She was born to very religous parents, Corlutingh and Casper Ten Boom, which taught her to have a deep love and respect for Jews. She was very close to her older sister Betsie, and they often did many things together. At a very young age Corrie Ten Boom and her family helped the homeless by supplying food, shelter and water.
Anne Frank once said, “How wonderful it is that nobody need wait a single moment before starting to improve the world.” The Holocaust was a traumatizing event for millions of innocent people, however, many found comfort by remaining calm and relaxed, for example, Anne Frank in the “Diary of a Young Girl”. In addition, politicians also did their best to encourage positivity, such as shown in “Blood, Toil, Tears and Sweat” by Prime Minister of England Winston Churchill. Keeping this mindset, they were able to maintain decent health, and most importantly, were able to persevere through any challenge that presented itself. Though some may argue that compromise is the best way to respond to conflict, in order to obtain peace and compromise, one must first have a positive attitude.

Moreover, Melinda’s behavioural issues stem from her depression and lack of desire to actively engage in her life. To emphasize, Heather see this abnormal behaviour when she says, "You don’t like anything. You are the most depressed person I've ever met, and excuse me for saying this, but you are no fun to be around and I think you need professional help" (105). Both Heather and Melinda’s mom complain about her depression and they do not try to help her overcome it. In reality, many teens and adults have depression.
As a matter of fact her outspoken nature could have gotten her in really deep trouble. We would often ask her, "How in the world did you survive in that context?" I just figured she like Mary kept those thoughts close to her heart. Unlike Mary when she got the chance never stop letting those bottled up thoughts out on any and everyone who would listen.

I don’t know why I’ve taken such a terrible dislike to her” (Frank 51). (m2MB) Anne realizes that she needs to stay calm and respect her mother, but she has great difficulty in doing so.
