After Arthur’s death, Jeevan has a moment in the Park where he “...found himself blindsided by an unexpected joy” (11). Even though Arthur died, Jeevan found such happiness in just being able to help someone in need. Twenty years after the collapse, Jeevan has settled down and is his town’s doctor. He, in the twenty years since his epiphany in the park, has discovered that he “...likes being the man to whom people turned to in bad moments, it meant a great deal to him to be able to help…” (270). Jeevan loves to be able to help people by being the closest thing to a doctor he can be after the
This helps convey the theme by stating that doodle has been the center of attention since he was born so he is used to everybody being around him and making him feel loved by his parents. The example “ Doodle!, Doodle! I cried shaking him. But there was no response but the ropy rain” (441). That example means that the older brother cared
I always wished that my son would become a different person. Today I can proudly say my son is walking in my dream shoes.” He then told me to go to sleep. Whole night I cried. I was not sad, but filled with joy that my father was proud of me. I think the uncertainty that was clouding my mind that my father would never be proud of me of who I am was finally fading away.
Yes any of the greasers can be a hero by just doing one little thing and they don’t even realize that they are a hero. Darry is a hero because after his parents died, he had to take care of his siblings Ponyboy and Sodapop. The text states on page two it states “ Darry’s hard and firm and rarely grins at all. But then, Darry’s gone through a lot in his twenty years, grown up too fast.” This shows that he had to take care of his siblings when his parents had died. Darry is also a hero when he took care of Ponyboy when he was sick.
Another example is that, when Jonah was opening the new restaurant he thought, “This whole night, I’ve felt close to my dad. It aches -- but somehow eases the pain, too.”Jonah can still be close to his dad but still life his new life.

In conclusion of the conflict between Jonah and his dad, you can be hurt by the past but as soon as you let it go, the soon you will be
One might think that he is dying from AIDS. Another indication that one might picture is a son that does not get attention because he is sick. “I am the invisible son,” is an example of the speaker being saddened around his his family the speaker knows he is dying and that he does not have a lot of time left, and soon he will be invisible (Hemphill 32). In addition to the speaker being saddened around his family is in lines sixteen through eighteen the speaker states, “My arms are empty, or around the shoulders of unsuspecting aunts expecting to
In this text, Holden is talking about how great his brother was and how pathetic he was compared to him. Since Holden likes to think of his brother and how great he was he starts to doubt his ability. He starts to believe that he not good enough or as good as his brother, so there is no point in trying. He thinks that his parents are disappointed in him and wish that his brother was still alive instead of him. Because of these chain of thoughts, he does not care or even try as hard as he could in school because he thinks that no matter what he does he will never be as good as his brother.
In the book, after Eddie’s wife, Marguerite, died, he felt lonely (when he met her in heaven, Eddie talked about her leaving too soon and how life has to end but love doesn’t). Eddie thought he was lonely, and that he should have moved away and chased his dream of doing something else. In the eyes of other people, Eddie did great things, like made sure kids had a good time and that all the rides were safe. So even though Eddie thought he was alone, he really wasn’t, as his coworkers and the kids at the park were always happy to see him. This sentence is meaningful to me and people in real life because people everywhere are sad and they think they’re alone, when in reality they aren’t.
So I would actually say the day he died was my biggest disappointment because if he was here today I doubt half of the stuff that’s happened to me would have happened. I miss him so much and each decision that I make I think of him and how happy he will be of his granddaughter. Every decision that I’m making in my life he will be supporting me 110% but I just look at it that I’m doing all of this for him. He always called me his little hustler and I am. I can do anything that I put my mind to, just stay focus and do your best
Children don’t tend to perform well in the field due to this pressure. I can relate to this idea as I have experienced this in my life once. My parents had high hopes for my brother. Once, on the day of the final match, my dad told him that he was sure to win and nothing could defeat him and his team. My brother got so much under pressure that he fainted before the game even started.
