They could confess and be imprisoned, or they could deny it and face death. The Puritans did not have the chance to explain or voice their opinions. It was very unfair and many of them were imprisoned or killed for no reason. Although many of them were falsely accused, they still could not do anything about it. Another example from the play is when John Proctor tries to tell the truth in order to get his wife Elizabeth out of prison.
The hand on Georgiana’s cheek is a symbol for the sins of this world. Even Aylmer states that, “as being the visible mark of earthly imperfection.” I personally think Georgiana knows that she will die in order for Aylmer to remove the Birth Mark. That is why she keeps putting the surgery off. Rosenberg explains, “Aylmer never truly sees his wife; even when she is dying, he misperceives the true import of her symptoms. (147) At the end of the story, Aylmer accomplishes the surgical procedure of removing the birth mark; however, it killed his wife in the process.
She seemed to lack social skills for interacting with her classmates. Wang looked different from working in a textile factory, working there stained her hands and she had old faded clothing. I feel that Wang lacked education because her father appeared uneducated she worked in a factory, and because she did not have the right social skills to fit in with her classmates. Moreover, her father was an uneducated man. Wang indicated this when she said, “my father’s even worse off than me” (Hong 166).
During the fire the windows are locked and many children were not able to reach it in time. Some children were locked in rooms as punishment or to prevent them from running away, so some children were unable to break through the doors in time of fires. Why is it significant: The government’s lack of funding caused the death of many innocent Aboriginal children. When the government put an extreme effort to separate Aboriginal children from their families they failed to take in the same effort to take good care of them. Timeline:
But Dowd no longer has that reservation because, of her niece. Dowd use the fact that her family works together to help he each other, “she had half her liver taken out at Georgetown University Hospital to save the life of her uncle…”. Dowd also, gives awareness that you shouldn’t be scared to donate your organs dead or alive “Some people don’t because they have irrational fears that the doctor will be so eager to harvest their organs, they’ll receive subpar care after an accident.” I think that it’s very
I chose to do my essay on the non-fiction essay, “Who Will Light Incense When Mother’s Gone?” by Andrew Lam. The themes I noticed in this non-fiction essay is love, identity, and the American dream. Andrew Lam feels guilt and shame when he heard his mother's remark: “Who will light incense to the dead when I’m gone” (Lam). Lam’s mother is worried that when she dies, their Vietnamese culture will be forgotten due to the modern American culture Lam has adapted to. His aunt replies to her worries and utters that when they die the rituals will end because the youth and future of the family do not understand the Vietnamese traditions.
Prevalent with Wang Lung’s eldest daughter, China’s society shows no favor towards a girl. After she births her first daughter, O-lan says, “It is only a slave this time -- nothing worth mentioning” (65). As opposed to celebrating with the birth of her sons, O-lan only shows shame after her daughter’s birth, leading the reader to realize the apparent discrimination against females. Even more so, this quote portrays the lack of recognition of the qualities and usefulness that a girl may provide. The girl survives through poverty and a move to the
This is what she had to say about that whole situation, “I didn’t volunteer. You can’t take me against my will!” (Marissa Meyer, 54). Her saying this makes you think about what was happening and the fact was that her step sister had volunteered her for the testing. This shows that Cinder has no say so in her house what so ever, and that whatever her sisters or step mother say goes. Cinder is then turned into a test dummy for the doctor because she was taken against her will to the testing site.
Appearing in USA Today, an opinion article entitled “Choose Adoption, Not Abortion” describes the life changing events that caused Marie Pozo Christie, a doctor and a member of The Catholic Association Advisory Board, to completely change her perspective of abortion. Christie describes how she once scoffed and pitied “...the yokels and the wingnuts...” who battle harsh weather to protest abortion in the March for Life; however, she soon joined these pro-life marchers when she adopted her youngest daughter, Lourdes, from China. Because families in China can only have one child due to overpopulation, most families want a baby boy because they are the ones who can work and continue the family name. Due to these strict laws, girls are often deemed
One example would be the way Ying Ying St. Clair's baby died. “I took this baby from my womb before it could be born. This was not a bad thing in China back then, to kill a baby before it is born. But even then, I thought it was bad, because my body flowed with terrible revenge as the juices of this man’s firstborn son poured out of me.” (281). In the book, she aborted her unborn son as revenge to her husband who left her for another woman.
Her father, Nao Kao Lee, was especially enraged on two occasions. One, when the doctors were performing a spinal tap on Lia, he said that was when “Lia was lost”, as the Hmong believed that procedure would cripple her in this life and her future lives . The second occasion was when he misunderstood that he had to sign a paper that stated that Lia would die in two hours, when it fact “released in two hours” was what was written. “In the Hmong moral code, foretelling a death is strongly taboo.”, and so Nao Kao grabbed his daughter and ran. He was caught afterwards, but these scenarios show that the Hmong had a strong sense of values that the doctors weren’t able to understand and both parties were at a disadvantage.
Her mother said that they stayed there waiting for them to leave as the aunt gave birth in the pigsty. Kingston’s mother warns her never to tell her father that she knows, this was a warning to her not to follow in her footsteps. Quote: “We say that your father has all brothers because it is as if she had never been born” Pg. 323 Response: This story gets right to the point fast. I understand with the culture in China, they don’t deal with disgrace well, but why was this women hunted
Can you even begin to fathom the despair,… the confusion th…the sorrow I feel? No, you can’t and there is no one else who can either. Who am I kidding I deserve this, I’m a failure. My mother used to call me the “perfect american child” “that i’m everything a mother could ask for”, but I guess my aunts don 't think I hear them when they say the only “Chinese thing about me is my blood”. Oh mom, why, why here, why now I need you… dad needs you… I can still remember, how when I was younger, we used to lay together in my bed and you would read me Chinese fairy tales and told me that one day, you would do the same for my children, but you’re not here anymore, and there nothing that I can do about it.
The most contagious disease was Leprosy , that disease stopped you from doing a lot of stuff so other people won 't get sick. Epidemics in the dark ages population increased Hygienic Condition got worst . Not many people Knew about medicine or anything that has to do with Medical. Also, they didn 't have a good Medical teaching system. They had many diseases and they were contagious.
His lack of care for those who lived in the poorest housing or no housing at all showed how little he understood about the correlation between economic growth and living environment. It seems illogical for a child living in the poorest and worst urban areas to feel a sense of inspiration to go out and strive for a better future when everything around him represents the idea that the government does not want him to succeed. These impoverished
