Although shy, I loved my friends and siblings and thought the best in every situation. It wasn’t until I grew older and received the guidance and outside perspective of my adopted mom that I realized how awful my home life was. I’ve since begun analyzing my behaviors and emotions that ran through my mind as a child to realize how to overcome the abuse I’d endured. The six books I’ve chosen as mirrors identify the emotions and behaviors I see myself having at a young age of nine or ten years old.
Feelings and Emotion Different feelings and emotion are not known in the community within the people. The Giver and Jonas are the only true people that know how to feel the different emotions. Every night at the conclusion of their evening meal one of the rituals is the evening telling of feelings. In the very first Chapter Jonas talks about how it was almost December and Jonas was beginning to be frightened. But then thought that was the wrong word to use.

but if I had to guess it was just the gesture from an unfamiliar neighbor – kind of ironic. The snow had the community working on something together. I finally got to play in the snow and use that new sled. Later that day, my father huddled the family up to have a little Sunday service in our house. The storm really made us as a family closer.
The eldest in the communities were hurt that the adults could not learn the traditional ways of their songs, games, story telling, and dances.

While Amy was grieving over her son’s death and struggles to collect herself, her husband composed himself easily. When he tried to console Amy, she became infuriated at him for being calm after their son had died, as if he did not care about his existence. The two entered a heated argument, with the husband persuading his wife to not leave the conversation and to confront her problem. When Amy explains why she was so angry with her husband, she exclaimed, “‘Three foggy mornings and one rainy day will rot the best birch fence a man can build.’ Think of it, talk like that at such a time!
Little Gustaf was shocked so that he couldn 't say any words. He almost cried because his entire family were spreadout the country. It 's really hard to gather together, last year, he had a good Christmas Day with his own family, it was fun, but he always felt like there must be something that lost, the feeling was not so comfortable. But now everything was on the right track. After the "guests" took off their package, they went to the shopping mall in the downtown, on the way to downtown, Gustaf was very talkable.
Children also get affected in this way because if the husband is always controlling the money spent, then the children may not get things that they need. If, say, the wife ends up getting a divorce, this affects the children because they may end up homeless for a while until their mother finds some sort of income. They may also change neighborhoods because the mother may not be able to afford the neighborhood they used to live in. The children will be mostly affected because they will lose all their friends, change their lifestyle completely and this may also cause a change in behavior. These children lose everything because of the divorce.
The fact that she can walk away from all those terrible experiences with love for her parents is incredible. Another thing I loved about this book is how it represents her parents, with all their faults, and their poor mentality, at its worst, without anger, or really any judgment, just with the love. If she had been bitter in her description it would not have been as amazing. This memoir was written with forgiveness making me respect her for not only surviving such a strange childhood to become a successful, but for being able to view her past with
The schools that David went to would often ignore clear signs of starvation and neglect and would often punish David; however, never to the extent of David’s mother Catherine. Eventually after David being stabbed followed procedure and called for the police to take action. Another time I would like to look into are the multiple failings of neighbor kids and neighbor parents. Neighbor kids, friends of David’s brothers, would often see David in unusual punishments. Punishments including David having to lay under cold water for many hours.
“Rinnnggg” the bell for recess had sounded, my first recess of my last winter in ND. I sprinted outside like a fireball. I was super excited for this winter; but would I want to leave it? Me and Logan met up with my friends and we talked about what we wanted to do for my last winter here. would we want to do what we normally do for winter.
Most of the special education staff, teachers, and administrators were attempting to reduce my tutoring, change expectations for what I would achieve to things that were just not realistic, and I was having a “bad brain day” and was struggling to advocate for myself. My dad listened to the disagreements between those that understood and those that didn’t. When asked for his input he simply explained that even though he struggled to understand what I was experiencing and how I could appear to be “normal”, he trusted and believed that what I was saying was the truth and that only I knew what was truly going on in my brain. These few sentences not only brought almost everyone to tears, but also helped people understand that it was not their perception of where they thought I was that mattered, but rather what I was experiencing. Even though I still had to fight every step of the way, sometimes winning and sometimes losing, this one conversation helped shift the mindset of those that doubted
In the movie Saving Private Ryan, one of the soldiers recalls a big memory of his that was his mom waiting every night to talk to him after a long day of work. He recalls this memory because to him it was one of the most painful ones. As he said when telling the story to his friends with tears in his eyes ‘’ I don’t know why I did that’’. This must be a painful memory to him because now that something as simple as talking to his mother isn’t reachable, he had truly learned how valuable those conversations were and how much he underappreciated them. Even now, most soldiers who are deployed can’t really be with their families and struggle through the big burden of realizing times that they could have talked to their loved ones but chose not to.
