Laertes, you’ve come to me impassioned and demanding your father 's vengeance, which is honorable and noble for a son to do. You must, however, focus your strength on the right track, for there are many voices crying out, and very few are right. And so, it is in front of your chosen witnesses that I disclose this faithful account of what has happened since the death of my brother, the late king Hamlet. This matter is a lot more complicated than you might think, for it not only deals with the physical but the mental too, for my nephew and son, the Prince Hamlet whom I love dearly, has gone mad. For what reason I am not sure, it may have been sparked by the refusal of love from your sister, dear Ophelia, whose madness can be laid on the shoulders
Okonkwo was also going through struggles of self-identity, and because of it he regrettably took part in killing Ikemefuna. This action broke Nwoye permanently, only strengthening the distance between him and his father. He saw the late Ikemefuna as a brother and a person he could look up to, he felt a feeling he had felt only one time before when he heard twin babies wailing in the Evil Forest. He never appreciated the violence that was embedded in the culture of his clan, but instead loved the stories meant for women. As a young child, Okonkwo would tell his sons stories of violence, and to stop the beatings he would receive for sharing his thoughts on them, Nwoye pretended to enjoy them.

Although I now understand that my father always strived to create a healthy environment for my well being, it will always be my responsibility to decide on what is really best for myself, especially in circumstances regarding my own identity.
Maria had to leave us soon because she was pregnant, and could not take care of a newborn child while also taking care of my brother and I. Maria told my parents that Frida could replace her. My parents decided to see what Frida was like since they would be needing a new nanny. The first day Frida met my family and me she worriedly told Maria, “They can’t speak Spanish, I don’t know if I should work here.” Frida is from Peru and cannot speak a word of English besides, “Hello, how are you.” Maria responded, “Don’t worry, just try it out, they are a really great family. Everything was going well for the first
