She usually used pathos, one of the rhetorical strategies. I felt bad for how Houston, a little girl suffered, and the work her family did to protect themselves from the hard circumstances. For example, when their family was moved by the army, her mother couldn’t take all of her things, and a dealer tried to buy them at a very cheap price. Her mother didn’t reply to the dealer. Houston describes this situation, “Mama’s nerves were shot, and now Navy jeeps were patrolling the streets.
The Quintanilla’s lost their home, many of their possessions and, above all, their livelihood. Selena and her family went through some tough times, but through it all she and her siblings kept playing music. People kept telling them that with Selena singing lead, they would get nowhere, because of women
My response essay will come from the essay who a girl was involved called Sandra Cisneros, the daughter of a Mexico-American mother and a Mexico father. A daughter whose father didn’t believe in whatever she did. No matter how Sandra tried her best to impress her father, Sandra’s father didn’t believe her because of the tradition that lasted for years that, girls can’t do stuff that will catch an eye from the society. Anna was not allowed to play with her brothers in public, and also, not only she wasn’t allowed to go to school, but also, she wasn’t allowed to expand her talent of drawing. It’s the same with my relatives from my mother’s side.
By the time she was eight years old, Clara had not made a single friend, so her parents decided to send her to a boarding school.

“There is evil in your bones” (18). For his entire life, Equality has been frowned upon his physical and intellectual differences. All Equality has known from himself is that he was an outcast to the society. As many people feared Equality’s differences, they told him lies. Equality’s assessment of his sin is correct because at the end of Anthem, Equality now sees his so called curse as a gift and plans to show the society how it is a great thing to be different.
She did not have much hope left anyways for her life because she annoyed the misfit with her ugly and selfish ways. In another quote the grandmother implies that the misfit is a good man by stating, "Yes it's a beautiful day," said the grandmother. "Listen, " she said, "You shouldn't call yourself the misfit because I know you're a good man at heart. I can just look at you and tell" (421). The grandmother doesn't know the misfit from Adam, yet she already gave him a persona that he has to match.
One of the many short stories by Kate Chopin is “Desiree’s Baby.” In this story, Desiree was found as a toddler under the shadow of a stone pillar by Monsieur Valmonde. He and his wife took the child in and years later, under the same shadow of the stone pillar, Desiree met her husband, Armand Aubigny. Not long after marriage, they had a child. Soon after the baby was born, Armand uncharacteristically became nice to all around him including his slaves. Soon after he began to notice that the baby 's complexion became darker and made the assumption that the child is not his or his wife was of mixed race.
Irony is a technique that involves surprising, interesting, or amusing contradictions or contrasts ( Glossary...Pg 1). The greatest example of irony happens when it turns out Armand is the one that comes from black heritage. He learns this when he “finds a letter from his mom to his father explaining how he is black” turning the main plot of this story around (Chopin...Pg 5) Throughout the discovery of his son not being white, he blames Desiree for being the cause of the problem. He won’t speak out of the discovery of him being the one with black heritage because it is unacceptable to his family. He is insensitive and would rather harm his own family (Gradesaver.com...1) Another example of irony occurs in the way that Madame Valmonde didn 't have a child of herself and one day while her husband was riding he comes upon a child just asleep next to a stone pillar (Chopin...Pg.
She had so many blood transfusions that the doctors had to cut her off.

Karta is a 12 year old African American girl, who has experienced a long history of trauma. She was referred to me by her school social worker Ms. Johnson who reports that she has academic problems, severe inattention, hyperactivity, physical violent tantrums and is disrespectful to her peers and teachers. Karta was raised in a single parent household during the first few years of her life. Karta’s father died in a car accident before she was born so she never got a chance to meet him. Karta’s mother Michelle became depressed and turned to alcohol to cope with her pain.
The birth of Michael sets the tone for the second labor, after he was born, my mother had fainted, which caused doctors to be uncomfortable with her handling her son. “I was pissed that they took my baby, and I wanted to be with my baby.” The mother hen was not having it, when the second baby came it wasn’t going anywhere. The phrase “mother hen” has always been thrown at me like it’s going out of style, or many would say “Keri’s mini me.” From a young age, bossing around little brother Jarod, was always a favorite. If mom or dad told him to go do his chores, there little miss Sena would be breathing down his neck till they were done. If he got picked on at school, the next day, those kids would back up as soon as he would walk in their
Her father cut her off from all social contact and courtship which ruined her life, "that quality of her father which had thwarted her woman 's life so many times" (Faulkner,38). So that there meant she was isolated by her father. She was not able to talk to guys and could not da ate either. When her father past away and was buried her isolation was more noticeable, "after her father 's death she went out very little" (Faulkner,34). At first Emily was not willing to accept that her father was dead, "she told them that her father was not dead" (Faulkner,36) and Emily did that for three days.
He was a wreck his mom was to saddened to see him like this. A few weeks later she had enough so she signed him up for a police officer job. “I don’t want to do this, I’m a failure,” he said with a disappointing look on his face. “C 'mon this a new chapter just try it out,” his mom responded. “Okay but only for a day,” he replied.
