I never had a united family. My father moved out of my house when I was 3, at the same time my grandmother died. As a result, it left my mother depressed in a house with two children. She depended on my father for child support, who was very inconsistent with his payments because they never officially got divorced. This lead to my mother’s anxiety erupting everyday, worrying if she will have the money to support us through the week.
The time I took a memorial trip to Branson Jackie Chan once tweeted Family isn’t whose blood you carry It’s who you love and who loves you back. I want to tell you about the time I took a trip to Branson that I will never forget. Some of you probably took an amazing trip you remember.

For years and years, Miss Emily remains content with remaining a lone wolf. However, after being alone for so long, Miss Emily opens her house in order to teach china painting classes.
Right from the beginning we can see that Laura has it rough, her mom has just died and she has just been dropped off at a home that she doesn’t really know for the wedding of a relative that she doesn’t know very well, and as Laura is suffering from the death of her mother the Fairchilds don’t help her predicament, in fact, they make it worse “When she got there, “Poor Laura little motherless girl,” they would all run out and say, for her mother had died in the winter and they had not seen Laura since the funeral” (Welty 1). The family never visibly mourns for the death of Laura’s mother, in fact, they seem to openly mock Laura for trying to mourn her mother’s death. The Salem Press wrote a critical evaluation of Eudora Welty’s Delta Wedding, and in the article she writes about how Eudora Welty creates an isolated world that the Fairchilds live in, and the family doesn’t experience poverty, grief, or suffering. The Salem Press illustrates Eudora Welty’s setting and family Delta Wedding. Eudora Welty has created the Fairchild family in a southern plantation society that is separate and unique from all of the rest, they are not affected by grief and suffering, there are no racial tensions or poverty.

Zaina’s homecoming was a huge event for the family. They did not know what to expect. They had no one to advise them on how to act, what to say, how to make their mother feel at home. They were hoping to compensate for the time they had lost while she was away. They had experienced trauma throughout the years their mother was gone; nonetheless, they figured that their mother must have experienced a trauma that was far beyond their own.
There was no way my parents would make me go on this trip. Nobody was that cruel. The rest of the school day continued uneventful from there until I got home from practice. My mom asked me what happened today at school and still laughing at the thought, I said “Well, Mr.Spinks proposed that we go on some sort of educational trip or something over spring break to the Globe Theater in England.” My mom apparently did not find this funny at all when she said “I
They were expected to remain chaste and get married early on carrying on similar traditions that had been around for hundreds of years in American society. The TV show I Love Lucy showed a stay at home house wife who wanted to break into show business (Thompson and Mittell 245). Lucille Ball’s character got into situations where she would get into trouble each week, which would undercut her argument that women could have stable jobs without causing societal unrest. On the show Leave It to Beaver the appearance of women’s lack of position in society was further advanced by the Beaver’s mother being unable to make financial decisions without her husband around (Mittell 332). While Lucy wanted more freedom and was shut down by her husband, Beaver’s mother was a more ideal version of the female homemaker during the 1950s.
The most important lesson that I have attained is that home is where your family is. After worrying so much about all of our material goods, we finally realized that it's not about the beds or dressers that make a home, it's about the people that surround you that make it home. The people that make you comfortable or bring out the best in you is where you call home. Over the past year, I had to call many different places 'home', but I have realized that those places were not my home at all if my family wasn't by my side. I believe God is always trying to teach us new lessons.

Not letting your child go to college is not letting them have a chance to have a life. This relates to a girl named Heather and her father in the The Wednesday Wars by Gary D. Schmidt. Heather was in a business with her father that she was forced to work in. When her family and her were sitting at the dinner table, she was talking about how she was going to college and her dad interrupted her saying that she’s not going to college and she is perfectly fine in the business that she is in not going anywhere.
