If The Fair Gwen had not judged Max Freak and Max would not have become friends. On page 20 the narrator states, “... she’s scared of me” (Philbrick 20). This shows that The Fair Gwen is scared of Max because of his demeanor. However if The Fair Gwen had not judged Max, she would not have felt bad about judging him by his size, she would not have invited Max over to dinner to apologize about her behavior.
But when I decided to reach out and tell them about my struggles, they showed a new side that I never knew and it overflowed with love and care for my life. It made me fall in love with my life again and my relationships with my family flourished. My mom made the most significant impact on me. For example, from the night I attempted to end my life, she would lie with me at night until I fell asleep just to make sure I am okay and that I get to rest. This is the most important environmental change for me because before this event in my life, my mother and I didn’t have a very good relationship and we would clash and never talk to each other.
She made Louis go to school, to church, and to Sunday school. When he was bad, she swatted his behind with a branch. When Louis was seven he was interested in music, there was plenty of it, especially jazz, to hear in New Orleans. Louis had his favorite musicians, Joe Oliver, who played cornet. Louis wondered what it would be like to play a real horn.
Both of my parents did not live in poverty, but my dad did struggle financially since he did not live with his parents. He could only afford very little, but that changed once he came to America. I am incredibly grateful for their sacrifices to irrevocably ensure my sister and I experienced the opportunities they never did in
My parents didn't have the opportunities that we have. Both my parents had to quit school at a young age, they had to find a job and help my grandparents pay for bills. My mom wanted to have an education she wanted her diploma but she wasn't able to achieve that goal. To her and my father is important for us to get an education for us to finish high school and go to college because they want all their kids to have a better life and be able to support our children in the future. From day one when I started kindergarten my parents push me to do my best and I don't plan to let them down.
Jinny was your average twenty eight year old. He lives in China and grows rice on his farm in the mountain at Altun Shan, a lower area of the mountains. Everyday Jinny would go out and tend to his fields with a size of one acre. Jinny has always liked rice.

Before I start this, I feel that it is important to note that this poem is in no way what so ever talking about my parents. I was very fortunate in this random lottery of pure luck that essentially determines your whole life. My parents are amazing and for that I will be forever thankful and I will truly love them with all of my heart forever. This poem comes in, as my usual, multiple stanzas each of which reflects a different story or event that has relevancy to the overall topic. Each stanza in this case takes inspiration from someone near me I care about, someone that I wish better for, for they don’t deserve the hell they are going through or went through, especially since they had no choice in the matter.
When I was around four years old, my parents wanted to surprise me with a special gift, which made that Christmas one to remember. I almost forgot that I had more gifts to unwrap because I was focused on discovering what my parents made me. I was not allowed to know what the special present was until Christmas day, no matter how many times I begged them to tell me. When I woke up Christmas morning, I was beaming with excitement, but I was still groggy like a bear waking up from hibernation.
This has helped her overcome so much heartbreak, from losing my dad, my sister, and my brother to her own health issues and through it all her faith has never been shaken. I look at my mother with nothing less than amazement. After my dad had his heart attack and could no longer work my mom never failed to provide for all her children, we didn't have a lot but we always had enough. This made me such a humble and grateful person, and I never take anything I have for granted.
My family is very inspiring to me. I am very thankful that my parents brought me into this world. Growing up my parents always showed me how exactly things work in life. One of the hardest things that I had to accept was that I could not have everything I wanted. There were times when my parents spoiled me
My mom had to grow up very quickly and help take care of her younger brother and sister. Because of what my mom went through at such a young age, she has gained a tremendous amount of strength emotionally, which has helped me out at times when I was feeling down and needed someone to be there. Generosity, is the second characteristic
When I was only a couple of months old my mom and I were stuck in an airport due to delayed flights. The only luggage we had was my diaper bag and a backpack full of baby toys. I was miserable and cranky the whole entire time which didn’t make my mom feel better. At the time I had no idea what was going on but now that will be stamped in my memories forever.
