Often times after loss, “mourners are unable [to] regain a sense of normal, functioning life without their object of loss,” (McClinton-Temple). A successful stage of acceptance, however, helps in allowing the mourner to move on. Jack first begins to accept his daughter’s death when he attends “the first impromptu memorial in the cornfield...yearly now, he organized a memorial,” (Sebold 223). These memorials provide a sense of closure for him, and after the memorials, he no longer hunts down Mr. Harvey or complains to the police, but simply accepts that his daughter is gone. The point where Jack truly moves towards acceptance occurs when he sees the daffodils in the hospital and says “‘It’s Susie’s flower.’ My father smiled beautifully,” (280).
Sam is determined on becoming rich and getting a “a gold mountain” but he lacks a good interaction technique. “Sam rarely smiled...He rarely spoke” (4) also his attitude towards customers are below average as he “glared at his customers from behind the glass.” (5). These examples shows that he values money over friendship, which might have been the reason they moved to Canada in the first place. Sam’s attitude toward the narrators family is really untraditional and cuturally incorrect. “But Sam Sing never entered our house.” (8), you should always help another person, especially if they are the ONLY other family in town sharing your ethnicity.
This was a huge achievement for a Chinese student at that time since there was no one complete this before. Furthermore, he was especially good at atomic and nuclear bomb field. Therefore, the American government wanted him to stay in America and work for the development of better nuclear bomb. To convince him to stay, the government offered him a big house and a great amount of money. However, Deng had no any interest working for the U.S. government.
Some Japanese-Americans died in the camps, because of lack of medical care, and food shorted.” “The soldiers shot them if they did not follow the rules or orders the camp had.” “As it states on www.ushistory.org “In 1944, two and a half years after signing executive order 9066, Fourth-term President Franklin D. Roosevelt resigned the order, the last internment camp was closed by the end of 1945.” “In 1988 the congress paid each survivor of the camps twenty thousand dollars.” “It is estimated that seventy three million dollars people are still getting their money for the violation of their freedom.” “At the end, President Ronald Reagan signed a paper that provided an apology to the Japanese for putting them in the Internment
Tom also gives Daisy the image of loving wife and mother that she feels she needs for the public eye, regardless of what happens behind closed doors. All of this leads to Daisy staying with Tom and being the submissive wife character he needs. But then she falls in love with Gatsby again and begins to really experience life. Daisy says “It make me sad because I’ve never seen such- such beautiful shirts before.” (92). Daisy isn’t just crying about shirts she is crying about a way of life she has never experienced with Tom but just within the few hours she’s been with Gatsby.
What does the text SAYS What the text DOES “Nothing is beautiful and true.” (p.43) I chose this quote because even though Oskar wanted to be like his father so much, he was still traumatized by the tragedy. Ever since his father died, he has become a more complex thinker. “There are so many different ways to die, I just need to know which was his.” Oskar does not accept his father’s death until he has finds a reasonable explanation for how it happened. “Every time I left the apartment to go searching for the lock, I became a little lighter, because I was getting closer to Dad. But I also became a little heavier, because I was getting farther from Mom.” (pg.
I just hated Bill, I did not like how he reacted in various situations throughout the film. He created bigger obstacles for himself with the choices he makes, like beating up a gang member, killing the nazi supporter in his shop, and then shooting a officer. If he had made right decisions from the very beginning he would have never gotten killed. Overall I thought Bill was just a creepy and an insane guy. He had extreme metal issues, however, at the same time I also felt sorrow for him because his mental health issues is what lead him to destroy his relationship with his family, especially from his daughter, who he greatly loved.
Near the beginning of the novel, Elie wanted to be in the same camp with his father more than anything else. The work given to both his father and himself was bearable, but as time passed by, “. . . his father was getting weaker” (107).
That’s because being a white, he cannot accept the thing that her daughter did. From the bruises on her face, it also implies that Bob terrifies Mayella in a violent way, like her life could be easily pulverizes by her dad’s hands. Thus, his action makes her feels reluctant to be just to tell the truth despite she’s guilty about being a liar. That’s because she is afraid of his menace, no one knows what will Bob do to her if she tells the truth of the things that he did. Therefore, she decides to use lies to escape from that dangerous situation.
stay away from white men".iv White men are antagonized by the Japanese women's unreasonable judgement. They are taught to avoid interracial contact like a plague. So there would be no opportunity for racial harmony. Mean while, the white Americans act self-righteous for hating the Japanese. Their hatred towards the Japanese is more justified after the bombing of Pearl Harbor.
c) I can empathise with Walt McCandless, Chris McCandless’s father. “....I spent a lot of time with Chris, perhaps more than with any of my other kids. I really liked his company even though he frustrated us so often.” (Krakauer, 104) Chris and his father did not truly get along very well as Chris got older, since their personalities were so stubborn, they would fight a lot. Walt loved Chris but rarely showed it, which made Chris have a certain hate towards his father. I empathise with Walt because his son died while they were on bad terms, although he knew Chris loved him, Walt had no time to show Chris how much he loved him.
