She writes “we’d been warned to stay away from the small patch of poison ivy that grew around the base of my grandparents’ backyard. But that year had been as theoretical as the segregation surrounding us. We saw the white people when we went downtown or as we drove through their neighborhoods on our way to visit relatives.” I believe that the poison ivy is a metaphor for racism and segregation. The ivy had always existed, but to Jacqueline it was theoretical because she had never experienced it.
Just as the kitten was forced away form its mother too soon, so too was Yolanda forced to leave her homeland and culture and too young of an age. Yolanda was too young to make such a drastic move which lead to her having difficulties later in life. Her cultural guidelines of how to act were no longer there and eventually when she got a little older she was free to become whoever she wanted.

Some men are leaving because of the awful conditions, little food, and freezing weather.

Dear Diary, Last night I was almost caught by Uncle Parris when the girls and I were out “dancing” in the woods. We weren’t really dancing though, I was trying to make a wish come true. I wished that my beloved John Proctor would love me and that we could spend the rest of eternity together. Deep down inside I also hoped that maybe this whole scene, that they call witchery, might have John pay more attention to me and notice that I am the right woman for him.

Where would we be without acceptance in the world today? All of us would be living in a society where everyone was frightened of being different. Barbara Jordan’s quote, “We, as human beings, must be willing to accept people who are different from ourselves”, mirrors the thought that acceptance is crucial in today’s ever-changing world.
