In the beginning of Purple Hibiscus, Kambili was very quiet and secretive. Then she starts to come out of her shell and began to express her opinions more. But at the end of the book, Kambili shows desperation for Father Amadi and shockness from the events that took place.

Gilbert had the most stress being the eldest son of a family where there was no longer a father figure. He felt he needed to take on all of the roles of his father and make sure he was supporting the family. I think he had the most stress in the family and was struggling emotionally and probably physically. Once he met Becky (who seemed to be higher on the social class ladder), things started to change for him. He knew his family was kind of the outcast of the town, but Becky was accepting of their status and challenges they faced.
Labelled and separated from the rest of society. These kids were afraid of being themselves; afraid of the life which they had in store. Being 'special ' made it hard enough to cope with everyday struggles and situations, so when they were taken from their families and entered into a new and unfamiliar environment, it made it ten times harder to adjust to the new normality 's and rules of "The Farm". The readers position, helps them to observe the character Chris as a prime example of someone who is putting on a show and pretending to be "Normal" all for the sake of fitting in. The human mind is a powerful piece of machinery with a distinct "us" versus "them" intellect.

Scott Fitzgerald explains how he doesn’t believe that our elders are so much more knowledgeable than us and how marriage sours quickly (He really gets into many different topics). Elders were more than willing to share experiences with younger people but they really don’t want to hear a reaction to their experience. Fitzgerald explains how “They always talk about their experiences but they go on making the same mistakes at 50” (5). A perfect example of this is Troy in Fences. Troy probably left his family in shambles due to his stint in prison but he worked hard to obtained stable job after he finished his sentence.
The house symbolizes that Ann is trapped and caged by her circumstances, she is unhappy and seeks interaction with people. She is married, but her husband, John, spends the majority of his time working. “He wanted a mortgage-free farm; then a new house and pretty clothes for her.” John feels that to lead a fulfilling life he has to achieve these goals, John’s ideals conflict with Ann’s values; She wants to spend time together and enjoy each other’s presence while they are still young. On the other hand, John feels that his duty in life is to provide for Ann and constantly works to attain his objectives. Ann feels that it is wrong for John to “slave away fifteen hours a day” to afford pretty clothes for her.
In the beginning of the novel, the family started off in a poor me type of manner where throughout the novel the Joads learn to keep going and learn that they might have to migrate to find better things. The economy in this time period was really very unpredictable, no one knew what was to come or if they’d survive or find a hint of work anywhere.This was extremely awful because most lower-class americans are questing for the knowledge and safety of self-sufficiency and a home in the world (Kordich, How). The Joads and The Grapes of Wrath was John Steinbeck 's way of showing the face of The Great Depression and all of the economic and social hardships

The only thing that Mama does when she tries to “fix” Walter’s manhood is make him more depressed and insecure about his role of a man in the world. In “A Raisin in the Sun” manhood plays a role of a brick wall for the characters, especially Walter. Walter is the father of Travis and the husband of Ruth but he doesn’t run the household.

As a result of this, it was very difficult to find an apartment. She remembers that, “One of the obstacles I had to endure in achieving my American Dream was primarily being able to acquire an accomodation. Due to my lack of credit history, it was difficult for me to get an accomodation of my own, so I had to endure and stay where I was”.

Hey Hesham, I feel as though immagration is a very converversal topic. Many people have mixed feelings about both view points and you really have to be civilized at the same time. In reality immagration is an issue that will never go away so a solution is very hard to find.I do agree with your veiw point on deportation being a not so civil solution. In my opinion most immagrants in this country are just normal people, they work and are just trying to make it. Many have been here since they were children and now have thier own family 's and their children are citizens, so deporting someone can break apart a family who has live a majority of their life here.
This causes them unable to obtain freedom because they are undermined as citizens.

Besides all of those things they all have something in common: they are immigrants. Interracial marriage was something society also did not like. One interracial couple went to washington to get
