The verbal abuse from this mother and physical abuse from his father shaped Ed into the man he became. His education level could have played a factor as well, but the fact he could read made him educated criminal. Ed’s subservience to this mother also played apart in making him introverted. He was taught that women were dirty and evil, which made his mother a saint in his eyes. His mental state was damaged as a child and later released as an adult.
Edward wonders if he should have been there more for his family instead of off with Jenny in Specter. However, when he asks his son William, Edward is provided with somewhat of an answer: “I think,” I say after a while, waiting for the right words to come, “that if a man could be said to be loved by his son, then I think that man could be
Edna finally starts doing things for her, she is letting herself feel an attraction for another man even though she is married and she also gets into art and has everyone in the house model for her. Rather than doing things to get the house ready for her husband or spending time playing with her children, she is distracted by all her newly found
He thinks that he can’t take as good of care for his father as his father did for him. Elie knew if someone ever tried to attack his father that he wouldn’t be strong enough to fight any men off. He knew all he had to do was keep his father as close as possible and you don’t always have to follow what they’ve done just keep them safe when they aren’t in the right stage to take care of themself. He knew that his father just couldn’t go any further he knew that once he felt it was time to give up he couldn’t seem to fight any longer you just have to give up hope and
Shear. One example is from Ed, “ ‘Your mother has had to go into hospital.’ (43)” This example shows that Ed had to lie to Christopher that his mother left them both because he cared a lot about Christopher’s feelings and didn't want Christopher to get hurt. Ed didn’t want Christopher to think that it was his fault that his mother left him. Instead, Ed had to fake her death and told Christopher that she died of a heart attack. Ed never wanted his son to take blame for Judy leaving.
I was constantly with my best friend during the last three days that was leading up to the moment. His name was Daniel, we have known each other since kindergarten, and he was a big asset to the team. Daniel would always say, “Edgar, I know how much this game mean to you, but no matter if we win or lose, I’ll know that you would’ve given it your all”. I was inspired by his statements because he was always that motivational friend. The end of the school day came upon us and we both headed down to the field for training.
As a result, of his father’s indifference towards him, Eddie’s reaction upon seeing him in heaven was anger and disgust. But, Ruby had taught Eddie that in order to move on he had to forgive and learn why his father had caused their family so much pain.Eddie was able to understand his father’s behavior in the past. He was able to see that his father was indeed in pain throughout his life on earth and because of this he was alone and unaware to anything but his own pain and suffering. Ruby’s purpose was to get Eddie to confront his father and not be judgemental and quick to jump to conclusions, so he would be able to see from his father’s point of view and forgive him. Eddie then later meets the fifth person in heaven, Tala.
One would think this goes hand in hand but we see it means so much more. Edna gave her life to protect the ones she loved from the pain her actions would have inflicted if she stayed. Edna was so involved in what she wanted for herself, yet knew other would suffer. Sadly, even though Edna was aware her actions would bring negative consequences she was not willing to give up her desire for freedom in return for her family. Although, Edna’s leaving did leave her children without a mother, she did it in “secret”.
I believe my outlook on life would have been very different if I had not experienced the poet Edgar Allen Poe at such a young and impressionable age. I am also thankful for the instruction from the teacher who helped me to experience the poetry the way I did. Poe is living on in his writings reminding us that nothing is as it seems and pretending to have no emotions will only lead to your own ultimate
He is at a dead end job working on roofs, he sees himself going nowhere because he is a high school dropout and is looking towards drugs and alcohol for an escape. But everything seems to change when he gets the news that he is going to be a father soon. Becoming a father gave him the mindset that he was going to have to be more responsible now. As his son got older he decided to change his life for him and his son so he began to read books to him. He practiced over and over and three years later he decided that he wanted to go back to get his GED.
