Many struggled with perseverance, searching for freedom, and longing for respect. Overall, we see a lot of struggle happening in the Younger family. Mama lives each day trying to make the family work and trying to hold them together. Beneatha is trying to find where she belongs in a world of inequality and different influences. Ruth is trying to do her best while not gaining the respect she deserves.
She is an exceptionally religious lady who believes God has a plan for their lives. While encouraging Beneatha she declares, “Course you going to be a doctor, honey, God willing” (Hansberry 50). Mama realizes that God is the one who actually controls their lives, and in the end it comes down to whether he wants Beneatha to be a doctor or not. When Beneatha replies that God has no control over it and He simply does not need to be recognized in her choice, Mama becomes heated. She forces Beneatha to recite, “In my mother’s house there is still God” (Hansberry 51).
The poem “Mother to Son” by Langston Hughes is another example of an individual making a choice based on the betterment of others. In this case, the mother is helping her son through life when it gets difficult. One of the main points made by the mother is that “Life for me ain’t been no crystal stair” (Hughes line 20). The mother has not had an easy life, and she wants her son to understand this and learn from it. The mother is telling her son that life isn’t a clear-cut, easy path, but that he must keep working hard and face life’s adversities.
She would conceive and give birth to a child who will be God in human flesh and blood. She was highly favored because, of all women she was the only one given such a privilege of bringing forth the Son of God in the human flesh. The event only fulfilled what had been prophesied long ago that a virgin shall conceive and bear a son and shall call his name Emmanuel meaning “God is with us”. Even though he came through this process he was God, because the prophesy said that he is the Emmanuel, God with us. St. John clarifies this very well and shows logically that he is God when in his epistle he writes that “in the beginning was the Word and the Word was with God and the Word was God.” And going further, he says that “the Word became flesh and dwelt among us.” This Word that
These qualities, though present in much of his work, are most prevalent in his first novel Not without Laughter. The character of Aunt Hagar embodied the spirit and beauty of the working class. She was an elderly wash-woman, who was loved by blacks and whites. But she maintained a strong sense of self. She went to an African- American church and embraced its spiritual beliefs.
So much that Linda convinces Biff to please Willy once again.

For me, my mom gave me the middle name “Elizabeth” which has a historical and biblical meaning.Elizabeth means "gift from God”.

The Downside of Single Parenting “A single parent could feel like a mouse racing on a wheel, where she/he is continually running, trying to maintain a proper household and raise healthy children.” This is a statement from Victoria Thompson. I do believe in this statement because for me single parents, unlike the married couple, are having a hard time in dividing their time with their work and taking good care of their kids. So, single parenting faces more disadvantages like the experience of economic hardship, negative judgment of the community and the psychological effects on rearing children that make the family and relation cycle really complicated. Single parenting is about having a child without living with a partner or spouse. In historical events, the major reason of becoming a single parent is because of the death of a partner, but nowadays, the main reason of being single parents is either divorce or unplanned pregnancy.
