Mama's dream to spread God's word to her children. Mama has always been a faithful woman and she wants to see that Beneatha is faithful as well. This is especially crucial to Mama because she sees Beneatha as a younger version of herself. Mama continues to push Beneatha towards God's word by saying, "It don't sound nice for a younger girl to say things like that—you wasn't brought up that way. Me and your father went to trouble to get you and Brother to church every Sunday."
Lourdes, Enrique’s mother, loved her children as every mother does and did anything in her power to provide for them even if it meant to travel 1,619 miles into a foreign country. Many parents like Lourdes have left their entire families for job opportunities and risk their lives through the dangerous journey but they have the hope and motivation because of love— love for their sons and daughters. Even Enrique found himself doing the same for his soon-to-be-born baby which was one of the components that made him persevere in his
For many people their family members were the ones that help them get through the hardest things in life. Deepak Chopra said, “If you want to do really important things in life and big things in life, you can 't do anything by yourself. And your best teams are your friends and your siblings.” The love and support in family is strongly shown in the essays, “Two Ways to Belong” and “Graduation”. Bharati Mukherjee’s “Two Ways to Belong” tells the story of two young sisters who move to America together to further their education. Maya Angelou’s “Graduation” tells the story of how Angelou graduates and how her brother helps her along the way.

In Ireland, it’s normal to meet and connect with someone new everyday—on the train, in class, or even just walking along the street. It’s an atmosphere of welcomeness, and I find that is a quality that transfers to the Irish community of Holyoke, near my hometown of Chicopee. Holyoke holds a large St.Patrick’s Parade every year, and during that time, I have fond memories over the years of joining strangers for a barbecue and sharing decorations with children we had never met. I did not at the time associate this with being Irish, but now am certain that this friendliness is specific to the culture. Within the other communities in my town, it would be odd and unusual to invite a stranger into our home, regardless of the celebration.
In today’s society college is seen as essential. Our parent have always pushed the saying, school is the only way to prosper in the world. Being told this at a very young age, we pushed the saying aside and continued to enjoy our childhood. As we go grade to grade, we pick up on new material which could be beneficial for our future. Finishing high school, as you wave your final goodbye to all your peers, walking across the stage holding
Catholic retreats, recollections, seminars, and outreach events became a part of our student life, apart from having religion classes three times a week. In short, I grew up actively practicing the Catholic faith, with Jesus as the center and the role model of my life. I grew up believing that God, our Almighty Father, is the most powerful Being behind the creation of the universe—all of his attributes and characteristics are beyond measure. I grew up not doubting the

There was The time I spent with my step dads parents in Edmond Washington all the one on one time with my mom the memories of getting anything I want as the only child, the birth of my baby brother although that really was exciting but I can remember getting left out for the new child, the birth of my sister but that is just were things got wore cause they were mom and dads angels they did no wrong. The memories that I cherish so much to this day with the days that I got to spend with my granddaddy. There were several memories that I hang on to, since he passed away I cherish them more and more. There are so many memories that they may not go in order according to age but they are they ones that I hold close to my heart.
I need to have the Catholic teachings my parents and the school I go to instill in me every day so that I can have the guidance I need that will help me make the right decision when the time comes. Another reason that I want to go to Mitty is that I want to be closer to my home if I am needed. My grandmother is alone at home since my grandfather passed away last year. She doesn’t drive and needs company sometimes when she misses my grandfather. Mitty is very close to my home that will allow me to help my parents when the time comes that I can go home when needed and also close to my sisters’ school at Saint

Because of this, God has always been the center of my life, or at least that is what I thought. The idea of God stayed in the back of my mind, but I have recently learned that the back is not the position that God should hold in my life. Missions are an area that my church is very passionate about, so we supports and participate in them every year. The church members always advocate for the yearly summer mission trips, and after going on my first mission trip to Boone, I became an advocate as well. I love working on the mission fields, so I try to go on as many mission trips as I can.
Like my parents, we have raised three professional children: two accountants and a paralegal who wants to become an attorney. They all graduated from Maryland University with honors and have made us very proud parents. I must also mention my beloved grandchildren, Brandon and Bryan, because they are the future of this wonderful world. They both enjoy baseball and may become professional baseball players in the future as they possess all the essential tools, ability and character to be successful. Now that my children are independent and working in their field, it is my turn to undertake what I have always wanted to do study accounting and make my family proud.
In a hispanic family, they are very loving and always wanting to kiss you on the cheek when saying hello and goodbye. There is also a lot of traditions that are kept from past generations, like going to midnight mass on Christmas night, because everyone is catholic.

They are very hard workers and absolutely love anyone and everyone that comes around.
