After realizing she “isn’t in Kansas anymore”, she and her little dog Toto meet Glinda. Glinda is a kind, sweet, caring, and compassionate Witch...unlike the Wicked Witch of the West who tries her best to make Dorothy’s journey very difficult. Glinda the Good Witch of the North is there to help Dorothy on her journey back home. Despite just having met her, Dorothy recognizes this kindness and takes her advice to travel to Emerald City, the Land of Oz. Oz, the powerful wizard is said to grant people's wishes; Dorothy’s being getting back to Kansas to her Auntie Em and Uncle.
Furthermore, when she arrived home in Kansas, she was exhilarated. This shows that nothing could replace Dorothy’s home; it was basically her aim during the whole journey. Even though Kansas was all grey and boring to her, she still considered it as her one and only home and no one could change that. 2) The importance of Friendship During Dorothy’s interesting journey to the Emerald City, she had made lots of friends. At the start, she had met the Scarecrow, then the Tin Woodman and then finally the Lion.
If an individual has a vigorous and encouraging outlook on something, it will help not to focus on the ominous events going on in their life. In “The Diary of a Young Girl” the author states, “But as you can see, Kitty, I 'm still alive, and that 's the main thing” (Frank). Since Anne had a positive attitude about the situation she was in, it helped her realize that she should be thankful for the little things. It also helped her to forget about the hardships and celebrate the jubilant times. In “Dear Miss Breed” the author states as she was on her way to a Japanese internment camp, “One of the most beautiful scenery was when crossing a bridge which was right above the Colorado River” (Oppenheim).
After moving around so much, she gets tired of it and writes a letter to her mother to come and take it with her. However, she realizes towards the end of the book how much she loves the family, when they get sick she helps them with everything they need and genuinely cares for them but it's too late. She made her own destiny and her grandma goes to visit her. Later she tells her to move in with her. At the beginning of the book, Gilly would have loved that but when she moved away she understood that it was not what she needed.
Icon, Oprah Winfrey, in her eulogy describes her feelings and gratitude towards Rosa Park. Winfrey’s purpose is to show how much of an impact Rosa parks made, not only her but on everyone else as well. The Winfrey wants the audience to become part of the passage and wants to utilize her feelings with the readers. Winfrey begins her eulogy by defining her gratitude by using repetition. Throughout the eulogy you see her saying “I thank you for not moving” “I thank you for that” “I thank you for acting without concern.” Using repetition in this area utilizes how grateful she is for what Rosa Parks did by standing up the way she did, not caring what people would do or say to her.
For example, Prince Charming is the one to “help” Cinderella get everything she ever wanted. In Sleeping Beauty, Princess Aurora “needs” the prince to wake her up from her sleep. This exact storyline is what our children are learning to follow at such a young age. Children are not aware of gender stereotypes and objectification. Fairy tales act as almost a role model for them.
This is also present in the fact that she is detached from her family members. A black feather with white band is said to signify home, harmony and balance. All that she wishes to be surrounded by but isn’t. It’s not that she can’t have balance at all it’s that she never has enough time to bring it in to light. The feather is covering one of her eyes to convey that she is blinded by this dream of one day settling down in one place and bringing the whole family together.
This fact also keeps Anneth from being able to stray far from home as others might think she wishes to do. Anneth is like one of the birds she so admires, she leaves and sees the world, but she always returns to the same place which she knows will always be her home no matter where her house sits. Anneth and Easter both were not just fighting for a land mass, but rather a living breathing member of their family. The memories the girls had with their grandmothers taking them to the field of wildflowers spreading
The theme of The Wizard of Oz is, “There is no place like home.” One reason that this is the theme is that for one, Dorothy’s mission throughout The Wizard of Oz is to get back home to Kansas and Aunt Em. This shows that “There is no place like home” by implying that Dorothy wanted to get back home, because no matter what she thought, she really did belong in Kansas with her family. Another example is that Dorothy had one thing in Kansas that she did not have in Oz, and that was safety. As long as Dorothy was in Oz, she was never really safe, because of the Wicked Witch of the West, and other events that put Dorothy in danger. She was safe as soon as she returned home to Kansas, in her bed, with Aunt Em and Uncle Henry by her side.
These steps as defined by Campbell are, are an encouragement by a mentor and the first threshold. These steps go hand in hand because one is a mentor helping you and convincing you to start the journey and another is the first step in the journey. Vogler illustrates this in the fictional world by saying, “Dorothy sets out on the Yellow Brick Road. The hero is now committed to his journey... and there 's no turning back” (F-c). This shows L. Frank Baum 's classic work of The Wizard of Oz, having a clear view of the first threshold with Dorothy setting of on her magical adventure.
The use of juxtaposition to contrast Pearl’s grace to the cottage’s depressing nature expresses Pearl’s presence as happy and bright, giving Hester the strength to continue living with optimism for a better future. Although Hester is depressed and living in a gloomy cabin, her daughter brings happiness and hope into her life.
We decided to talk to her a little bit longer, because she just went on and on. She said I looked a lot like her daughter when she was my age. Then she went about saying how much she misses her daughter and her family. I just really liked the interaction because you could see how much it meant to Ms. Dotty to just talk to her for a little bit. She was so sweet and
At the picnic, her friends were all wanting her to stay and live with her Aunt Margo. Her dad wanted her to come and live with him and her siblings Dalia and Hawthorn. Nory was faced with a difficult decision. “But here she had Aunt Margo, who liked her just the way she was.” While she is thinking about what she will do, she realizes Aunt Margo loves her just the way she is. “You 're not going to give up are you dear?” She has her teacher and friends in the Upside Down Magic class who care about her.
We got to spend a lot of time with each other without or phones distracting us. Some of good qualities my mom has is that she is very generous and is very kind to everyone. My mom is very important in my life because without her i would not be here. She has taught me so much and has always encouraged me to do the things that make me happy. The quote my mom lives by is treat others as they want to be
When Moni, her friend from Cambodia go on a trip together to collect bottles, Sundara sees a broken doll. The doll reminded her of Noka’s baby that died, making her fall into tears. Soka then tells her about how she feels about Sundara, which shows Soka how she feels about her. Later on in the book, “Sundara gets a letter letting her know that Mayoury, her sister is alive and well in a Thai border camp”. I like how this book ends it is so happy feeling and makes Sundara happy because she knows Mayoury is alive.
