I remember spending twelve hours on the airplane without getting any sleep. I couldn’t stop thinking about my new life I will face in America. I felt as if time had stopped and I didn't know what to think. After spending nine years in Egypt, I moved to an environment that was totally different from the one I came from. The first day of school came by so quickly, and I remember going to school not knowing anybody or anything.
After the Civil War immigrants from Europe and Asia traveled to America in hopes of a better life, many were disappointed however, to find a life similar to the one they were trying to leave behind. The United States was said to be the “promised lands” or the country of freedom and success, and it was, mostly though, for those who were white and also men. Immigrants felt coming to America was right for them for many reasons, being that they were pushed to leave their countries for their own personal struggles and they were pulled to the U.S. with all of it’s talk of being the land of the free. During this time however, dark times were beginning to be made a little easier with recent innovations and technology that changed the lives of all people for the rest of time.
Pearl Harbor and the nukes dropped. War is not something you should take lightly. World War two was particularly difficult for the united states of America because they wanted to remain out of the war. Neutral was no longer an option after what japan did. Before that America was on the sidelines just observing and aiding the ally forces.
As Janie’s guardian, Nanny more or less had full control over her, especially so, given the time period. Janie’s marriage to Logan was completely a product of Nanny’s insistence. Even in her marriage to Joe, a choice that Janie made herself, she had little to no control over own well-being, once they were married. These decisions and their consequences made up the first half of Janie’s life, which is bewildering, because none of them were actually her decisions. Janie’s reclamation of power over herself, in her relationship with Tea Cake, is only the beginning of her spiritual
My mother did all she can so I can survive and enjoy what life to offer. When things get hard my mother never give up on me. For example, she built the mud house by herself which to her few days to build for us to live in. My beautiful mother taught me great principles as a young age that I would never forget. Not to give up on things enough when life through something that you don’t want.
The airport was a sea of people going everywhere. I looked around, wondering whether I would really like it here, in my native land. After spending most of my life overseas, in Europe and the Middle East, I had my doubts about Japan. Going from country to country all my life, I should have been used to moving around, yet this was different. Instead of just moving from one country to another, I was going back to my home country.I thought that I would feel at least some kind of belonging after landing in Japan, but I felt none.
The reason why I moved to America was not because I was living a bad life in India, it was so that I could have a better education and more opportunities in life. When I came to America, I had to go through much struggle. First and the most important was that I did not know how to speak English. Apart from this I was very shy, so I didn’t communicate with people frequently. Growing up in America and being a son of two Indian parents, I never felt truly American or Indian.
I managed to grasp the basic concepts of learning in grammar school only to succumb to the same people and pressures in high school. I achieved honor roll status in my freshman year of high school. Regardless, I fell off track puberty, peer pressure, and hardheadedness were my worst enemy. I conclude, moving out of my first foster home where I stayed for 13 years would satisfy my curiosities and mysteries of the street. Dr. Moorer states, "Like many of us, I thought I could fix my own problems."
As much as the Huns are relocated, their presence is explicable. On the other hand, the military camp where the Chinese soldiers train before they are ready to go to battle is much more contemporary and inaccurate. The military is not usually associated with cleanliness and health, yet the camp in the cartoon looks neat, tidy, and hygienic. Not only does the camp look unreal, it resembles a contemporary military camp rather than one two thousand years ago. It is unlikely that people back then would have used white fabric for their tents, or lined them up in neat rows.
In this light, it became quite clear as to why Nora stayed with Torvald for as long as she did. Nora was not aware of the world of opportunities to live a different life and to set a course for her future, independent of men. Throughout her life, she had always been a chattel, first her father’s and then Torvald’s. It wasn’t until she rekindled her friendship with Kristina Linde, that she realized that there was a different way to live, igniting the spark that finally allowed her to leave Torvald. Relatedly, I felt more empathetic toward Torvald considering that he was simply representing the shared mindset of an average man during the time.
