He is confronted with two paths arranged by his mother, who is of a Catholic descent and by his father, the son of Vaqueros to pursue in which concern being a becoming a priest or roaming the plains, continuing tradition. Because both of his parents believed so strongly in their values and morals, he did not have any certainty which was correct and which he should abide by.

The Spanish conquest of the Mexica caused changes in both Spanish’s and Mexica’s lifestyles. The Spanish had to change the culture of the conquered Mexica while the Mexica had to try to resist the cultural and political changes of the powerful Spanish. The Codex Boturini visually demonstrates the migration stories of the Mexica people after leaving Azlan to find Tenochtitlan. The Codex Boturini illustrates the several steps and stages the Mexica had to go through to find their dedicated space, the struggles they endured, and the events they celebrated such as fire ceremonies and sacrifices to the gods. On the other hand, the Codex Chimalpahin offers another point of view of the migration story of the Mexica since the author, Chimalpahin, wrote it after the conquest.

St. John, the evangelist, had the honour of penning these final words of the LORD Jesus, which gave the Blessed Virgin Mary her new mission as Mother of all mankind. These last words spoken by the dying Messiah to His mother as she stood at the foot of the cross are words of dedication which call us all to a love relationship with her. This is the very love relationship that I am determined to have. “Behold your mother!” By these words, I recognize that the Blessed Mother has an active role to play in my faith and spiritual life.
This also contributes to her life being labelled as a “terrible waste” because she probably did not have any outlandish aspirations as a small child and, consequently, could not form “regular” aspirations as a young adult.

Okeke does help as he “helped her fetch water from the stream and occasionally chopped firewood”, but there is only so much that he can do as his support is barred by his own “physical inadequacy”.
