Moving was a blessing in my life because it gave me so much more than a new house in a new town; it gave me a vast number of friends, a way to adapt to newfound situations and the strength to face my fears. I know how guilty my parents felt for uprooting my siblings and I, but God does everything in life for a reason and sometimes it is difficult to see the bigger picture but once I did it was quite the

Antigone: I think she leans towards humanism, from what I saw in the beginning of the play. She ignores the King’s wrath, and feels the need to bury her brother despite risking her own life. She tells Ismene that it must be done. She proceeded to Creone that she did not abide by his laws, but rather God’s laws.
