My father shares some of the characteristics of Homer’s father John Hickam. John is a busy man who lives his life in the mines to provide care and support to his family every day and night, sun up and sundown. Observing his employees’ safety and production. John is so overly obsessed with his job that he never finds the time to do other things with his family such as going to see Homer fly his rockets. This relates closely to my Dad, because he’s always being occupied with work and making sure the place is being run properly and everyone is doing their job correctly.

For years, most of us had seen each other only at airports, or, wearily, marching, marching” (133-134). As a civil rights activist, it was hard to be able to discuss things with other activists because each had his own tasks to take care of and could not stay in one place for too long.
