In my gut i knew i hadn 't done enough but i had enough of letting people walk all over me. He wasn 't the first but he sure as hell was going to be the last. I knew that if i didn 't teach him a lesson that he would do this same thing again to another girl and that 's not fair. So i did what i do best climbed out my window and took my step dad 's car because my mom started sleeping with the keys in her room and went to jason 's house. I knew his parents weren 't going to be home he told me all the time about how they worked nights to take care of his little brothers during the day, i also knew that his brothers were at their grand mothers house like every friday so he was home alone.
He ran into the cowboys and tricked them into thinking that they had set up an ambush to scare them away. He got back home, but his dad never came back. He came to the realization that they probably put him on a prison ship and that they would release him when the war was over. Him and his mother were left to run the tavern by themselves. This ws very accurate because, during the war most of the men went to fight, so the women and children had to do most of the work.
After this journey, I am more accepting of others because you never know the suffering that they are going through. I am grateful that I went through these tough years because it led me to become the caring, determined person I strive to
Dee Ann was left obsessed with what had happened. Every year her husband brings up the names of those involved, hoping he would say them and she would just let it go like nothing happened (Yarbrough 632). Because of this, her inability to let go, Chuckie was often away from home, and Dee Ann feared he was cheating on her. She almost questions his friend, but “if he has looked surprised, it would have worried her, and if he hadn't, it would have worried her more…” (Yarbrough 637), so she doesn't ask. What he's father did to her mother caused he to have no trust in her own husband.
A conflict that happened was when Raven got into a huge argument with her father who demanded her to stop seeing and having contact with Mizan. “I’m going to say this one more time, I don’t want to hear about you being around Mizan again” (331). Benny Atkins didn’t trust Mizan from the very start, so after the incident that took place in their home (Raven and Morgan being held at gunpoint by masked men) he didn’t want her with him until he found out who was behind the burglary. Raven’s father only wanted to keep her safe let alone only do what’s best for her. After going back and forth with her father about Mizan Raven chose to leave.
Civil rights has progressed tremendously since the Civil Rights Act of 1964 was created. My parents grandparents told me stories of how they were treated terribly in sweatshops, and were deterred from seeing a Bruce Lee movie because of all the mocking they would receive. Thankfully, discrimination towards any type of person has rapidly deteriorated in the United States. However, it is still common and is often changing towards different groups. In the past decade, discrimination in America seems to have shifted from women and people of black skin color to Muslims and people with brown middle eastern skin color.
Mama thinks I’m crazy and she kicked me out. My vicious thoughts towards my father grew over time. Now I know it sounds weird to go to college for nursing and have vicious thoughts, but ever since I was a little kid, I didn’t want toddlers or babies to have to live through the thought of monsters hurting things you love. Age 22 I had lost my thoughts back when I was a sophomore in college. My college years are over and I’m trying to get in to a hospital to start working a real job.
He said "I was happy in Agua Prieta." Sometime afterward I asked my grandmother why she didn 't convince him to take the job. She said, "I did try, but your grandfather thought the people in Guadalajara were rude," and my mother told me that he argued with the hostel owner several times about the way she treated her servants. When his tour was over they all quickly packed their bags and flew back to Agua Prieta. My grandfather resumed his work, building structures made of dirt and straw.
Before I moved to Vallejo I was dealing with controversy with my mother. She would degrade me and physically abuse me. I would not tell anyone, not even my father, because she always made me feel like everything was my fault, and that I was always the one to blame. Until one day when she took me to school no said "I do not want you living in my house anymore; you are going to move in with your father". I held in a lot of my emotion for most of the day until I told my best friend what was going on and that I would likely be relocating to Vallejo; where my father lives.
Unlike my father, my mother is very strict. When I was a teenager, my mother would punish me for simple mistakes. I remember her spanking my brothers and me for not cleaning the dishes well. One the other hand my father do not believe in spanking children. As a child, I loved going to my father’s house for the weekend; he would let me get away with being disobedient.
