Rose even points it out to Troy by saying “He’s just trying to be like you with the sports.” (Rose). Cory attempts multiple times to talk about sports with his father such as baseball, but he constantly shoots him down. It is extremely ironic that he tries to be like his father by playing sports, mainly because this is the issue that tears them apart. Though he tries to be like his father in the beginning, he ends the play trying to escape him. After he left from home, he returned on the day of his father’s funeral wearing a Marine corporal’s uniform.
In Lorraine Hansberry’s “Raisin in the Sun” Act 3 Walter has seized the hero role and he displays a lot of pride. Walter is starting to understand that he has to stand up for what he believes in and not everything is about money. “And we have decided to move into our house because my father-my father-he earned it for us brick by brick”(1933). Walter turns down the Clybourne Park Association 's offer only after he remembers the roots his family has in America, and the rights that they deserve. He wants to set a strong example for his son, Travis, just like his father did for him.
With all the years the father has missed, he wants to be a part of her life more. Young’s dad is trying to be a better figure to her by “...smooths and sands as filling in all of the empty crevice (15-16)” this allows the narrator’s dad to have a better relationship and get to know her better. “... Father of mine whose love keeps him moving from room to room (23-25)” even though the narrator’s dad doesn’t express his love towards his daughter he is starting to work on it now.

He kept looking for his family and believed he could find them. When Uncle died, Salva was still determined to reach the refugee camp, and when he did he was still determined to find his family. Without Uncle, the group’s attitude changed, and they grumbled about him being too young and small, and nobody shared food with him, so he had to beg for scraps, which were given grudgingly. Under all of his sadness, Salva felt stronger and kept going. Third, in America, he was determined to help the people of South Sudan - “Salva worked for hours and days, which grew into weeks and months”, (pg 108).
In the article, Birds and Bees, No Let’s Talk about Dollars and Cents, by Ben Stein, he successfully makes his point to inform his son that he needs self discipline to create human and financial capital to have a more stable life. The young boy has been living large his whole life and his father wants to help him keep it going by having self-discipline to make smart decisions so he doesn’t live in fear and insecurity.

With the use of anecdotes and repetition all throughout the letter, it allows Stein to utilize logos, pathos,
When it comes to his family, Jason aligns his ideals with and draws his inspiration almost entirely from his mother and Julia. While certain scenes present the father in a tolerable light, the chapter ‘Souvenirs’ stands as a symbol for the discourse in their father-son relationship. Jason’s dad is actually far to similar to his son, as shown by the quickness with which he shirked from an altercation with his boss, to serve as a proper role model. In the later half of that same chapter, however, Jason recounts “I had no idea mom could be so bulletproof”(193) when depicting how she stood up to the spoiled, highschool thieves. Far more than just a juxtaposition to the father’s frailness, the mother’s action serve as an idealized metaphor for Jason’s own struggles.

Odysseus made it through the many trials and tribulations he was faced with to see his family. In The Odyssey, Homer emphasizes the significance that similarities between fathers and sons can have: “Never, anywhere, have I seen so great a likeness in man or woman-but it is truly strange!

The owner of the Washington redskins argues his side of the debate by inserting an anecdote in his letter to his fans talking about his time going to a redskins game when he was 6 years old. he invokes a sense of pathos in his writing speaking of the team 's respect of Native Americans and how they honor them with the redskin team name. However his use of tradition for a reason to keep the name immediately weakens his case saying “ That tradition -- the song and the cheer -- it mattered so much to me as a child ” a child who didn 't understand the nature of the name or the behavior of the fans as anything more than people cheering on their team and having fun dressing up as their mascot. This appeal to tradition is not a justifiable way to convince people to come to his side of the argument. Anytime there has been a push for change in this country the push for the abolition of slavery or the women 's civil rights movement people use the appeal of tradition or their freedom of speech to argue for their cause but this does not mean
Growing Up One of my earliest childhood memories is playing youth football for Batavia. Childhood is a time of joy and new experiences, but everyone has to grow up. Holden, in Catcher in The Rye, doesn’t want to grow up or forget his childhood memories. He doesn’t want to grow up because he says the world is full of phoney’s. One example of Holden cherishing childhood is when he looks at Phoebe’s notebook.
Holden decides to use the baseball glove of his deceased brother Allie to write a composition for Stradlater, and although Holden does point out he wasn’t exactly thrilled about it, the statement about him not only being unable to think about any other topic, but revealing his interest and liking into the contemplation of Allie’s poems and of his late brother himself, shows his immense care he once had and now has for the brother he lost. Throughout the book that event changed him severely, as it created the sense he needs to be a “Catcher in the rye”, or preserving the innocence of not only himself, but also of the children, who have yet to experience the corruption and evil transferred by the adult world. These events help shape this similar tone, as it represents a darker and intuitive thinking in Holden’s character arc, and when this can be represented through a past event, it helps present the commotion and inconvenience of affairs as something that can be either only a minor event that can be brushed off, or as something that changes entire life’s. How death can drastically change someone’s views is a phenomenon that eventually everyone is going to endure at one point, and the effects on the psyche can be predominant in any

However, as I grew older and know-it-all dads began coaching their sons, the same faces who welcomed me, turned their backs. Countless times, I was told to switch to softball. “Baseball isn’t for girls!” one sexist father said to me. No amount of persuasion or bullying could make me leave the sport I loved. Being only 5’3, 135 pounds, I knew I would never be as strong as the boys, who gain strength naturally.
