For my research paper, I want to explore how people born into poverty are resilient and hardworking individuals, opposed to lazy and hopeless individuals. This issue was seen in Jeannette Walls’ memoir The Glass Castle throughout her childhood until she went to New York. During her childhood, Jeanette and her siblings were bullied. They were bullied because their clothes looked ratty, they looked greasy, and often times eat out of the garbage because their parents didn’t have enough money to buy food. Some days, they starved.
Susie Salmon is a young girl who passed away at age fourteen, she was brutally murdered by George Harvey. She was a good-natured and intelligent girl. She wanted to be different from others and that made her a distinct individual. This is a quote from Susie herself before she passed away, “I chose it both because it expressed my contempt for my structured surroundings á la the classroom and because, not being some dopey quote from a rock group, I thought it marked me as literary.” She watched as her family went through hard times but also saw the good times. In the end, everything worked out well.

She says, “Dad was perfect,” even though the quote provides information that he is flawed by being an alcoholic. Rex Walls made Jeannette’s life scary and eventful, but she continued to love him and keep him on a pedestal. Jeannette 's mother, on the other hand, came across more negatively according to my classmates and I. While there are some extreme situations in the book that are absolutely horrible for a child to experience, many of the situations with her mom were the worst. Sure she was starving and that was bad, but it was the mother who was mentioned more, not the fact that Jeannette was hungry.
“Shortly after my sisters began to read the books, they grew restless and lost interest in darning socks and baking bread, and all of them eventually went to work as summer waitresses in the Sea Food Restaurant.” (MacLeod,2000,pg.5) The knowledge of the outside world leads the girls to a better life “None married a fisherman.” (MacLeod,2000,pg.8) The books helped the daughters break the chain that they were stuck in, the chain ‘of the sea’. “And then there came into my heart a very great love for my father and I thought it was very much braver to spend a life doing what you really do not want rather than selfishly following forever your own dreams and inclinations.”. This passage is where the son realizes that his father, similar to the girls was not ‘of the sea’, and wanted to escape too. “I would remain with him as long as he lived and we would fish the sea together. And he made no protest but only smiled through the cigarette smoke that wreathed his bed and replied, "I hope you will remember what you've said."
Walker depicts how his wife’s community has excellent schools, safe neighborhoods, and clean parks. Despite having a nice community, Walker’s wife still faces racism. For example, people in her community would sometime indirectly discriminate others due to their race: “the stares and snickers her parents faced in restaurants; how her brother was routinely followed by mall security; how her sister had trouble getting a date for prom”(194). Since Walker’s wife comes from a passive community, it explains why she has a passive tone towards disputes, even it is connected to race. In comparison to Walker’s experience, Walker defines that his wife’s challenges as “relatively benign”(194), which means Walker implies that his wife’s situation is easier to deal with.
