If he hasn’t taught his sons to live on their own, then he has failed as a

My dad, who had just came downstairs, liked the suggestion and said that he would tag along and play some baseball with the two of us.

In Joseph B. McCullough's Essay, Uses of the Bible in Huckleberry Finn, McCullough highlights such moments.1 In the beginning of Huckleberry's adventure he hides on Jackson Island, while his community is on the lookout for a supposed dead Huckleberry. Huckleberry claims he is peckish and, lo and behold, loaves of bread washes up on the shore; when one dies and their body is in the river their loved ones embed quicksilver in bread so it can float to their dead carcass. In this scene McCullough underlines that the bread is "unintended charity"(McCullough 2) because Huckleberry claims that "[he] reckon[s] the widow or the parson prayed that this bread would find him, and here it has gone and done it. "(Twain 59) Huckleberry believes that prayer was the reason he receives this charity, while also emphasizing that only their prayers would work and not his because "[he] reckons it don't work for only just the right kind. "(Twain 59) Huckleberry Acknowledges that religion does work, but only for the right people, and he's not one of them.

Hawaii will always be my home and there is no doubt in my mind that I will give back to Hawaii one day. Hawaii has always been the provider to my success, if I didn 't have this place to come home then I wouldn 't have my successes. I believe that it is a privilege to say I live in an amazing place like Hawaii.
