The mother cares so much about her son that she does not want him to see her getting upset in his final days. “She held a ghost smile between her teeth, and in her eyes memories.” When it says ghost smile it shows that she does not want to show her child that she is upset about the situation of his death, because as you know children do not like it when they see their mother upset. Also when it says the memories in her eyes it refers to the flashbacks of the good times they had together presumably before they got put in the refugee camp. This is therefore another reason for her to be hiding her
However, Wes is still reluctant to have Marie as a Native American gain justice. Wesley would like to do nothing but on the other hand his wife Gail is loyal to Maire and wants justice. Marie’s sickness is sort of a blessing in disguise when it comes down to it, if she had not been sick, then frank would have not be caught.

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.
First she tries to persuade her more reserved sister Ismene to help her. Once Antigone starts to realize her argument isn 't working she asks, “A true sister or a traitor to family?” (Sophocles et al. 190). Antigone uses a pathos or an emotional appeal here to try and convince Ismine. The appeal will help convince Ismene because no one wants to be called a traitor because it has a negative connotation.

As you can see in this situation, Mrs. Stevenson thinks that she won’t be killed since her perception is that everyone loves her and no one would want to kill her. However, in reality, it’s the complete opposite and she wasn’t prepared for her planned murder, which sadly, did occur. Based on these reasons, do not trust perception and reality. It can lead to one doing something unreasonable or unwise. Just because someone perceives something will be one way, doesn’t mean it’s true in reality.
In the song she states, “ Aint no fathers where I’m from, just mad mothers”. This helps the focus of the album by illustrating the kind of place she lives, and how her father could be non-present for several reason like, he could be in jail or even dead, because in places like where she lives it is a common thing, Pasain later on goes to explain that the males that she does know are not great father figures because in a line of the song she states “ Why am I being disrespected by someone I should call brother?” Another line she states while singing this song is “ And why girls feel unpretty and constantly hate each other”. Which is disheartening because basically you get the feeling of a 16 year old girl going through life by herself, she already stated the mothers are “mad” the fathers are gone and the other males figures treat her like an object and disrespect her, and the girls she

When Molly suggested escaping she told her that her Daisy would rather stay instead of going home. But, when she heard that her mother was no longer in Jigalong she was quick to break away from the group even though Molly warned her it was a trap.

Where the mothers, aunties, grandmothers are head of the household instead of the fathers. Also, when a mother, aunt, grandma says something that is the final word, there is no arguing or defending yourself. If you want to do something, like go hang out with friends, you would have to ask permission from the mother or grandmother, and if they say no, you cannot argue or whine because they are the authorities figure. Also in the book, Lareau talks about physical punishment (spanking) and teaching styles. Again, this was hard to connect with because growing up; I was spanked but hardly by my parents.
