It is great that she found a way to keep these siblings together, but in circumstances where a culture is so different from outside cultures, it seems best to look inside their own culture first. Following this point, when their native American community did intend to bring them home after the death of two of their boys, the DSS caseworker kept the letter they tried to send via her to the Billings for decades; and then she sent back a forged letter from “Diann” denying that request. This makes me wonder whether there was something else the caseworker was covering up about this case, or did she just not want to do additional
Imagine living during the time of the Civil War. Now imagine being a teenager through the Civil War, and your father was fighting that war. “Little Women” is a book that expresses the emotion of four young sisters while their father is away at war. Each young lady has their own job ad way to keep everything orderly at home. This story by Louis May Alcott is said to have been her life with her sisters and that she was the character Ho.
‘You’re sending us away, aren’t you?’”, and her father states how he and her mother are doing this for the kids own good. In Band-Aid, kids are being left in the US because they are separated from their families, who want them to have a better life, a huge sacrifice. Another way they are similar is that the authors write them both in a neutral tone towards immigration as a whole. While they have different views on the exact situation, both are very neutral to the fact that people are immigrating and don’t think of it as a good or bad thing. Finally, both use words from actual people (dialogue from the characters in Red
Take care of your husband, take care of your children and take care of your household; that is the job women were given and although times have changed; that stereotype still remains. Similar to Madeleine Albright and many women who struggle with finding their place above stereotypes, Pastan ends her poem speaking up for herself and finally showing the reader her
When the raids continued to happen in Molching Liesel would bring her books to keep herself calm. Until one day papa said “if there are more raids, keep reading in the shelter” (442). That is exactly what Liesel did, even though she was in fear she used her words to help others once again. Ironically reading has not always been an easy task for Liesel Meminger. When she arrived to Himmel Street she could barley read a sentence and now, years later she decided to write her own story.
Like the title suggests, there is a lesson learned at the end of Bambara’s story but Sylvia has a hard time admitting she learned anything. When asked about what they’ve learned, Sylvia “[walks] away and Sugar has to run to catch up”(Bambara 6). Since Sylvia is the narrator, readers are aware of her thoughts and know Sylvia has indeed learned a lesson. This is clear when Sylvia talks about the importance of $35 to her family compared to the people who shop at FAO. Instead, Sylvia stays silent when asked, not wanting Miss Moore to know she has learned something.
One of the most grounded bonds in the story lies amongst Celie and her sister Nettie, a relationship encouraged by dreams, prayer, writing, and faith. Before Nettie loses up on reaching her sister who left, she understands “whether God will read letters or no, I know you will go on writing them; which is guidance enough for me…When I don’t write to you I feel as bad as I do when I don’t pray, locked up in myself and choking on my own heart” (Walker 130). In a sisterhood as solid as the one like Nettie and Celie, writing letters to each other without reaction and pleading God are enough to keep the two sisters together strongly, however physically isolated by a
It is clear that the woman is afraid of her son and the power he has. It is not said who is the receiver of the letter either, but we can assume that he was somewhat close to the mother and her son, because he had asked her about her son before in a letter. She was surprised to receive a letter from him, but she also expresses her relief to tell somebody about her worries. She writes in the letter that her son was good in school and that is something that the consignee of the letter should already know, if he knew her son at all. So from this we could guess that he is someone from their past.
My parents allowed me to grieve anything I needed to – loss of friendships, breakups, bad grades, moving, leaving home to go to college, etc. My sister got diagnosed with scoliosis and was given a back brace at the same time she got braces for her teeth. So, I remember my parents helping her through the grieving process of those changes. They listened to her and allowed her to cope with it however she needed to without trying to tell her what to do but they also tried to help her see the positives of it all. In chapter 6, Gutman says, “It I important to surround ourselves with positive people – people who are both respectful of our desire to enact change and who understand how to offer the emotional support we need” (Gutman, 2005, p. 90).
The parents keep telling then its not their fault but that Eva Smith bought all this on herself. “A girl of that class” once again showing the class difference and that only someone from that class would land up this way they are not to blame. The final speech the Inspector gives the Birling family has different effects on them after he leaves the room. In this speech he gives them a final idea of what they have done and a lesson on how they treat others who may not be in the same class or social setting. “But just remember this.
After watching Alyse Shacter speak about obsessive compulsion disorder (OCD), there were a few things that did surprise me. To begin with, I was surprised that her classmates were extremely helpful with her OCD and offering to carry her to class so she wouldn’t miss class. Even though her parents were the ones that spoke to the class about Alyse’s OCD, Alyse still showed bravery and courage to allow her parents to speak to her class about her problems. This story reduces the stigma of mental illness because even though Alyse suffered from severe OCD, as her classmates became aware they decided to help Alyse. They even offered to carry her from class to class so she wouldn’t step on the tiles, which was one of her OCDs.
She also wants teenagers to talk to their family, or teachers about everything that is happening with them because they can help them. Don’t be mute. In conclusion, the author wanted the audience to know how bad pressure peer could be. Melinda had many obstacles in her after the peer pressure, but she ends it with
I believe she did this because she did not want to tell her mom no, as a caregiver, especially to a loved one sometime following your intuition and saying no can be difficult being I may feel like you are taking away their rights as a person. Being a Certified Nursing Assistant, the two essays I chose were ones I could relate to. The struggle that she encountered while trying to help her mom into the car was one that I’ve had to deal with on many occasions. Having patients is key to caring for your elderly or sick love ones.

A girl that would grow up to be a social worker, set the bar for saving children from abusive homes, and have an orphanage named in her honor. The girl had been seven when Marlen took her, and named Lucy Donovan at that point.
