It was built by people who left their homes and their families for jobs that offered little pay and less sleep. It built by young people who braved the bitter cold and scorching heat to knock on the doors of perfect strangers. Obama would never forget these kind people and make every effort to help them. America faced many challenges nowadays- two wars, a planet in peril, the worst financial crisis in a century. However, the challenges that tomorrow will bring are the greatest of our lifetime.

He has worked his entire life as chauffeur and has always wanted to go beyond being that though he has nothing to look forward to due to lack of economical power. In families, usually the one who brings money home leads and has the power. In the play, Walter has no control of his family mainly because his salary does not give him power. Also, Lena Younger has the insurance check from Big Walter which contained $10.000, making the Youngers depend on her and not on Walter Lee’s budget. As he is seen in the play, it can be deduced that his stressed personality mainly comes from the fact that he has no money to portray power.

Vance identifies the reasons for lack of economic and social success amongst people living in Appalachia, and how he broke out of it. As a child growing up in this poverty stricken area, Vance is well aware of all of the issues keeping “Hillbillies” from moving up the social and economic ladder. Aside from bare lack of money and abusive drug use, he recognizes how “Hillbillies learn from a young age to deal with uncomfortable truths by avoiding them.” In his story, he talks about how people in economic hardship would not try to change their bad work ethic or lack of education, they would just continue to labor in their same low paying job. Ultimately, this caused many of his peers to sacrifice their dreams; Vance accounts, “Psychologists call it “learned helplessness,” when a person believes, as I did during my youth, that the choices I made had no effect on the outcomes in my life.” Basically, the people Vance speaks of are their own biggest enemies; by accepting their unfortunate lives, they never go on to do anything productive, and they lose sight of their hopes and dreams. This issue is further explored in the article, “Learned Helplessness” by Jeanette Nolen, which accredits “learned helplessness” as the reason “why individuals may accept and remain passive in negative situations despite their clear ability to change them” (Nolen).
If Steve Jobs would have depended on his luck he would have not earned his fame and reputation like he had. Steve Jobs earned his fame because he worked hard. He didn’t have a dorm room, so he slept on the floor in friends’ rooms, he returned coke bottles for the 5¢ deposits to buy food with, and he would walk the 7 miles across town every Sunday night to get one good meal a week at the Hare Krishna temple. This is what a leader needs; hard work. The concept I like is that “the real role of the leader is to figure out how you make diverse people and elements work together (p.100).

Gregor 's life before the metamorphosis was limited to working and caring for his family. As a traveling salesman, Gregor worked long, hard hours that left little time to experience. He reflects on his life acknowledging the plague of traveling of changing trains, the ever changing faces, never to be seen again, people with whom one has no chance to be friendly. The family had never respected Gregor for his love, but only for his money. In addition to being the only innocent character in the book, I believe Gregor handled this change of lifestyle pretty well.
