About 65.7 million informal/ family caregivers provide care to someone who is ill, disabled or aged in the US. Out of that 52 million are family members which could decrease to 32 million be 2020. This may possibly happen because many people don’t comprehend that we should listen to our elders owing the fact that they are wiser. In the non-fiction short story “A Celebration of Grandfathers” Antonio understands how precious and valuable elders are, but also how wise they are and why we should care for them. Rudolfo Anaya uses Antonio’s good personality to show how much respect he has toward elders especially his grandfather.
The Transcendentalism movement was a time where people wanted to be free of rules out in nature and just be an individual. The two men who led this movement were, Ralph Waldo Emerson and Henry David Thoreau. In today’s society Transcendentalism isn’t seen abundantly throughout the average city. Emerson and Thoreau did not like the government and wanted to be free of its laws and regulations, but they loved nature and individualism and they wanted everyone to be “one” with nature while being their true self. In modern society today that can be tough.

However as humans they also do not share the same background story of why there fathers might neglected them .
Marquez chose an unnamed, unknown, first person narrator. The narrator parallels with the reader in that the narrator and the audience are both given all conflicting perspectives of every version uncovered. The narrator does not share the same association the other characters he interviews in the novella because he no longer lives in their village. The narrator 's loose attachment from the murder is evident when he says, “I met him a short while after she [narrator’s mother] did, when I came home for Christmas vacation” (28). The narrator was not in his town for the event so he is not as connected as most of the characters that share their story in the novella.
On the island Huck was free to do as he pleased. His only problem was feeling lonesome. Huck says, "but by and by it got sort of lonesome, and so I went and set on the bank and listened to the current swashing along…there aint no better way to put in time when you are lonesome; you can't stay so, you soon get over it" (Twain 33). Huck was free on the island, it was his lack of satisfaction that created his discontent feeling. When Huck was with the Grangerford’s he was once again free to do as he pleased.

Victor Frankenstein had spent years studying in Ingolstadt without family or even friends and the test of time proved it to be hugely unhealthy from him. To start off, this isolation took a toll on Victor’s mind as he could no longer see beauty outside of his pursuit of knowledge. This is seen when he says, “Never did the fields bestow a more plentiful harvest or the vines yield a more luxuriant vintage, but my eyes were insensible to the charms of nature” (55). Before studying in Ingolstadt and before exploring his curiosity, Victor enjoyed nature. Apparently, it is because of this interest in the human body that made him see the outside world of no importance and now, he is “insensible to the charms of nature”.
