The theme of this book is learning to love and care for the people around. How I came to this conclusion is by how Liesel acts towards Max, her foster parents, Rudy, and her neighbors. Liesel cares for people even if they weren't like her and she doesn't understand why there is hatred in this world. She wanted the world to be a happy place for everyone including Jews to be friends with one another. On page 426 in ‘The Book Thief’, when Rudy’s father went to war Liesel could relate to Rudy because “her mother.
As the audience is drawn to this speech you can see some of the women pushing aside tears as they gain this knowledge. There needs to be a public stand on this disease. For a human with this disease the community needs to be judgement free. As a community we need to show affection, and helping to raise spirts for the whole family of the affected individual. In this speech it is stated “Much good has been done, but much remains done.” As parents raise their families they must not fear teaching them.
Luckily, Amari met Afi, because she is the one who helped Amari, because she has gone through this before. She is watching out for Amari, and she is trying to make her as comfortable as she can. We both would have a hard time if we didn’t have the support as we both received! Although Amari and I have many similarities, we also have many differences. Unfortunately Amari’s parents and brother were killed in the shooting brutal invading that occurred in their village.
This relationship clearly shows that Sang Ly may be poor but she is much more of a loving mother than a poor housewife. In “The Rent Collector”, Sang Ly comes back from the healer and everything is stolen but since everyone knows how much of a caring person she is they all chip in to help her out. “Mother, Nisay, Tera Mao, and I are organizing out home, and, before my eyes, friendship is soothing the sting of injury.” It is evident that everyone loves Sang Ly since they are helping her out in a time of need. “And do not worry about the things you lost. We are making
As I read Anne Dillard’s, An American Childhood, I can see and related to the fact that we do not take notice of the way a small event marks our life just as much the memories that we can still recall, but we later can see the way it has “written our future”, that is the tiniest thing that trigger a chain reaction and that this affects us later on. In the first paragraph, Anne explains the way football makes a part of her life, the emotions that it creates and the way it has changed her, it also introduces the traits of her character, an energetic, tomboy girl. Overall I enjoyed the essay and I liked the fact that is easy to read and relatable.
However, Thomas explains that she was able to focus on her life, and now she wants to bring attention to the idea that immigrants of color can also succeed. The problem is how hard all immigrants in general and the immigrants of color to have a chance to come to the United States to study and work with a limited offer. The problem can be solved if this country changes to the merit-system, like Canada, to collect talented people from all over the world. The article demonstrates the problem of discrimination against immigrants of color, which has been happening in the United States for a long time. It is hard for the immigrants of color to become employees and find a job.

Heart “No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.” (Eleanor Roosevelt) The quote shows how Eleanor thought no one had the right to make you feel inferior, and how giving kindness to those in need is a crucial part of life. There are many reasons why Eleanor Roosevelt should replace Angelina Jolie at UNICEF. Eleanor Roosevelt is an important figure in our country for the changes she made, and for the people she helped through many forms of trouble like wars, and poverty. Also she held the important position of being the US ambassador to the UN. She is there for many Americans during the worst times the country has faced.
Furthermore, I want them both to experience American culture without being overwhelmed, or infatuated with the culture that they forget their own. I want them to diversify their culture, not change it. Additionally, they have given me an outlet to talk about latino heritage and it’s benefits. I have friends who I know will watch the nightly soccer match, friends who understand how strict parents can be, and friends who have the same ideals as me. I could always talk to another non-hispanic friend about the same subject, but they would never understand it because they have never experienced it.
Luma herself, had experienced a significant change to her personal identity, when she made the bold decision to close Ashton’s and file for bankruptcy (60-61). She was not shy about admitting her failure and how ashamed she was of herself, but instead saw it as a chance to seek out other prospects that would benefit herself and the families of the soccer players she coached (60-61). Openly admitting to her failure and suggesting the idea to begin helping others despite their misfortune, were the initial steps Luma took to reinvent herself and her position in the community. This traumatic experience inspired Luma to help refugee families combat isolation and personal issues of their own. Her plan was to start a small
As a young girl, she was innocent and unaware of all the discrimination in the south. Growing up, Anne has dealt with severe poverty and is often the one bringing income to her family’s home along with her mother. Her employers are a huge factor as to why she is so drawn to the movement. For instance, when Anne learned about Emmitt Till being killed, she ran to her mother for an explanation but her mother had replied “…just do your work like you don’t know nothing… that boy’s a lot better off in heaven than he is here” (262). Her mother brushing off the death of Emmitt Till took the best of her curiosities and she questioned why her mother was acting so afraid although it was obvious that.
If hero can be defined as someone who is selflessly caring for others and trying to heal the hurt, then Clara Barton is a hero. She saw something she believed would help her country and the people that lived there and made it happen. Looked at the sadness of war as an opportunity to help those fighting non-violently. As well as, help stand up for those treated unequally and unfairly by society. If you wanted to envision a worse world or at least U.S, then imagine it without Clara
She soon realized the much social, economic and political oppression under which they struggled and she had bitter experiences trying to find shelter for abused servant woman and homeless girls who were turned down by bureaucratic institutions with little sense of the urgency of their situations. These experiences left indelible sorrow and determination in her mind and heart. With the advice and encouragement of three priests- Joseph Nugent, Edward Armstrong and Michael Blake- Catherine decided to use her inheritance to build a house for poor servant girls and homeless women on Baggot Street. The foundation stone was laid in July 1824. Catherine’s legacy was very simple: she wished to empower poor people and others to lead happy, mutually sustaining lives; she believed the development of girls’ and women’s talents is most conducive to the good of society; and she saw religious education as the centrepiece of a truly merciful education.
Luma Mufleh struggling through ordeals to obtain a decent field for her soccer team reveals a metaphor Warren St. John uses for the social changes many of the refugees went through when immigrating to Clarkston. This metaphor highlights the significance of the book, namely that both as a society and as individual, we should not fear change, but work diligently through it to reach a satisfactory end product. Luma’s soccer field struggle going from Community Center to Indian Creek Elementary School to Milam Park followed a similar trend to what the refugees struggled with in their lives. The trend went along the following pattern: the state of things seemed decent, then took a turn for the worse, but eventually turned out to be alright again.
