The intended purpose of the play was to teach about the importance of remembering your past. Throughout the almost the entirety of the play we see examples of this, for example, Mister Matternot turns out at the end to be Iris’s father. However, by the time he is reunited with his coat he has spent several years away from his family because he couldn’t remember who he was, where he came from or his past. When he was reunited with his coat he remembers who he was, why his hands are cut, and who his family is and is finally able to return to Nocturno. Also, both the mom and later the daughter lose their Past Coats and once they do, they both behave nearly identically at first, not knowing who anyone else is, who they are, or what is going on.
By that time I had met a nice guy and we were going to get married and move away but in the back my mind, I still wanted to go in the military. My mother constantly reminded me that my goal was to go in the military, she said she would take care of my son if I would go in. So I signed up on the delayed entry program and finally in November of 1984. I went off to Basic Training leaving behind my eighteen month old baby boy.
If I don’t fill the tags that would be a waste of money. We had to spend over $75 on those tags. I honestly think that the stress on me and the stress on Howard. Your book just lit me up. Ya it is kind of hard for me and my family because my dad has infection and his ankle broke a year ago, his shoulder was broke at about 2 years ago and it still not fully healed.
When he was found he was hospitalized for several days in Knoxville, then when he got home he was sent to a local hospital. Henderson is one of many who have chosen to venture out onto the Appalachian trial. One person who decided to hike the trail was Sean Gobin who right on his last day in the Marine Corp’s decided to hike the trail. The trail did a good deal to his perspective of humans after his 3 deployments with how supportive people were on the A.T. Then there was Vickie Holloway who did the trail to cope with her husband always having to leave for Special Ops missions.
An Air Force chaplain handed him a “Dear John” letter. His wife Loretta told him that their relationship was over. “I have changed drastically–forced into a situation where I finally had to grow up,” the letter read in part. “Bob, I feel sure that in your heart you know we can’t make it together–and it doesn’t make sense to be unhappy when you can do something about it. Life is too short.”
My Collapse and Restitution When people see me walking through the halls of school, or walking down the street they may see me as an underachiever, or even a slacker; if they had seen me last year or the year before perhaps they would have been right. My Freshman and Sophomore year I struggled to pass many of my classes. I had begun to give up on anything school related for the purpose of "enjoying my youth while I still could". Back in November of my Freshman year my Uncle Gary passed away suddenly of a heart attack which made me begin to realize the importance of living a full life and doing what is important to you. To tell the truth, I despise the idea of becoming someone who works in an office for the entirety of their life in a dead
Now most people would be nervous of moving to a new school, but all we had to do was move through new hallways since our middle and high school are connected. Freshman year was probably the hardest year I've had looking back at it now and shaped me to be who I am today. Back in 2013 my grandpa had passed away from a rare form of lung cancer and my Mina (grandma) was suffering on and off from it, having no one to take care of her my mom would stay at her house 5 to 6 days out of the week and she would go there right after work. I would hardly see my mom except in the mornings before school and by than she would be sleeping after driving home from Danbury at 5am. My dad was hardly around from work and just not wanting to be home.
We jammed everything we could into our small wagon. What we couldn’t fit, we left by the side of the dirt road. As we drove through town and onto route 66 I knew this might be the last time we ever drive through this part of the country for a long time. Then, it hit me, where would we live? Will we live in one of those camps that my cousin Jenny wrote me about?I had so many questions about California, I didn’t know where to begin.
I did not do anything I should have, and maybe if I did I would have been further along in really figuring out my new illness. Maybe I would not be so lost in all the craziness of having a chronic illness. Maybe I would be back on my way to a healthier life. On the way home from church that first night, my chest began to hurt and I felt like I could not get any air.
An event that has influenced me greatly has definitely been the mission trips I partake in every summer. I've went on one each summer starting in 2015, in which i hope to continue this for many more years. Throughout the many trips I've taken, I have learned that everyone deserves the same amount of help and respect. You never know just how far the little acts you do can go for others. My first trip was to Virginia Beach, I first thought that it would be all fun and games.
