¨In this way (Harriet) worked, day after day, till late at night; then she went home to her little cabin, and make about fifty pies, a great quantity of gingerbread, and two casks of root beer¨(Doc D). This explains why it is the second greatest achievement because she didn´t work as long as she did as the first greatest achievement. Harriet Tubman's number one greatest achievement was being a caretaker from after the war until her death in 1913(48 years). The focus of Harriet's life was to help those in need(Doc E). This explains that though she didn't have the necessities for everything she still helped because that's how she was.
In the story Cathedral, the narrator is the husband of a wife who has kept in touch with her old boss from years past. The boss is Robert, a blind man whose wife has just passed away. After his wife’s death, Robert was invited to visit and stay with an ex-employee. The husband doesn’t want the blind man to stay over at his house because he is jealous of Robert. The husband’s wife has kept in touch with the blind man for the last 10 years.
It seemed as if months flew by until I felt better, the truth is that only two months had passed. It was then that my grandmother took me to a healing workshop where I was introduced to Ana Rosado, an incredible woman with a passion for life who also happened to be the only one working with Jin Shin Jyutsu in Puerto Rico. At first I took sessions twice a week during the course of a month, then once a week during the next month and once every two weeks after that. I can honestly say Jin Shin Jyutsu works, my process was fast but not overwhelming, during the first sessions I would quietly lie on the massage table and fall asleep instantly, but I began talking after the second week. I felt better after each session and I clearly remember describing it as wearing pink tinted glasses, I felt as if nothing could ruin my day.
It was a foggy cold Sunday morning. When I couldn’t even see across the street. My mom heard her phone receive an E-Mail and we worried that I was on a bad team. When my mom read it I knew I had a good team and coach. The next week was equipment pickup and that was when I would first see my team.
“ “...but then the darn bird died a few weeks after we got him… so I just went back to the pet store and got a new one.” “Sweet Pea was sort of a series of birds.” ” (Page 4, Rachel Vail) This shows how the mom comes clean, and Ashley learns the truth about Sweet Pea. This supports the theme because Ashley learned the hard truth that her many birds had all died, and now that she is older she has to learn about it. Another piece of evidence is when Ashley admits that she wasn’t the best bird owner. “ “I’m sorry if I wasn’t a good enough bird-owner,” ” (Page 6, Rachel Vail) This evidence shows Ashley admitting that she may have been not a good owner, and this is a hard truth that she had to admit to herself. She learned it now that she is older, and finally is accepting it.
She suffers unbelievable tragedy with the death of her only son and husband in a matter of a month, yet she is one of the only static characters because it does not change her. Willie is Lucy’s first love and they both come from humble beginnings in Mason County. She is largely domestic (Jack spends a good portion of the first chapter describing Lucy in a state of “bliss of self-fulfillment” because she served dinner successfully) and makes many sacrifices for Willie’s career- she stays married to him despite his affairs with multiple women (Warren 1.51). Lucy’s main internal conflict is looking for a “something so [she] could live” after Willie and Tom’s death (Warren 10.590). She finds resolution for this when she adopts Tom’s baby, whom she believes has “got to be Tom’s” and decides she must accept her responsibility in carrying on Willie’s legacy (for her own good) and remember him as “a great man” rather than live in bitterness (Warren
She started crawling, walking, and talking at an earlier age. When she was the age of three, she was sent to live with her grandmother because her parents were very busy. Her mother, Amy Earhart was very busy taking care of Amelia’s new baby sister and Edwin Earhart , was a lawyer which prevented him from being home often. Although, they cared very much for Amelia, they didn’t have time to take care of her. Since her grandmother had suffered from many family death’s she needed something to keep it off her mind so taking care of Amelia would be a good distraction.
I have been embraced by my department; a group of single mothers far more educated than I am, who nevertheless give me a voice and an opportunity to speak. I sit at the table during community police meetings, and I am there when we gather with the hospitals and organizations that silently move mountains to improve the area. On the weekends, I organize sports and games in the park for kids at risk for gang recruitment. I helped sixth graders plant mums along Main Street; for many, it was the first time they had planted anything. Mums and sports in the park are precious, surface level community projects.
They no longer feel self conscious because their parents could not afford to buy them new clothes so they have to wear the same limited wardrobe each week. Instead they can come in and pick out a large quantity of outfits and every Tuesday and Thursday. This organization is such a blessing for many students and I would not trade my experience there for anything in the world. I also volunteer at my school library form time to time. I have always adored reading.
The last and final vet clinic that I visited was the Lakeland Vet Clinic, which is located in Manson. With the help of my mom, I had successfully gained a few hours of job shadowing. I was ecstatic but also nervous because I have never personally experienced what the every day life of a vet is really like. On a Monday morning, my mom drove me to the clinic. When we walked in both my mom and I were introduced to Dr. Rich the Assistant Vet.
I just finished Barbara Ehrenreich’s book Nickel and Dimed and it really heartwarming to read. Cleverly Subtitle “ How (Not) To Get By In America,” The book is about Ehrenreich’s “adventures” in survival as a member of the low- wage workforce that serves our meals, cleans our homes, and cares for our elderly. The book divvied into three sections, each of which find’s Ehrenreich in a new location, looking for new work and a place to live., she took the job as a waitress at one restaurant before moving to a busier one attached to hotel. But exhaustion (and accompanying pain) got to her and she ended up with
The Walls by Hollie Overton Leave a reply On the way home from my visit to see my daughter, I started reading The Walls by Hollie Overton and finished it the next day. While it was a very quick read for me, it left me wondering about the tagline. “Would you kill to protect your family?” Kristy Tucker had a brilliant future ahead of her until a one night stand ended in pregnancy. Now 15 years later she is working for the Texas Justice System as a public relations officer working with death row inmates, the media, and the system. It isn’t a job she loves, but it allows her to take care of her ailing father and the son that she adores.
On Monday, both Mr. Levine and our paralegal were gone, so it was just my on-site mentor, her husband (who was recruited to help out), and me in the office. For a large portion of the day, I was on the computer and answering phone calls. The phones weren 't too crazy, thankfully. My main purpose for being there was to help my on-site mentor as much as possible. I don 't know how to do even half of what the paralegal does, but I knew enough to help with standard office stuff, like scanning papers and drafting subpoenas to be sent out (mostly for personal injury cases, but for family law cases as well).
She helped me get the volunteering opportunity. Description I volunteered at Meals on Wheels for 15 hours. I worked three days from 8 am to 1 pm. During my time at Meals on Wheels, I worked with the elderly. My tasks were the same for the first two days, but the last day I worked in the office.
